    Oh, what a great episode!! I just stayed in bed listening to this with my eyes closed and a slight smile on my lips.

    *sighs* And you guys had me basically in tears all through the last segment with all the theories. I can’t believe that the end is so close now..

    And, woohoo to the shout out to the trolls :D I just got my t-shirt the other day and I haven’t been wearing anything else since :D

    What a treat! Almost two hours filled with Snape-a-rific topics. : ) I already listened to it twice since this morning and at the end of it I always get really teary. *sniff*

    Loved the Snape-Hermione part … *rrroarrrrr*

    Can`t wait for another episode but meanwhile this will be my daily “smart drug”!

    Hey Guys,

    Yay another episode! This month seems to have dragged on. Anyway just thought I would send a note about a problem I have had in the last couple of months when I have tried to download snapecast it takes at least 3 goes to be able to download the entire episode. This one when I first downloaded it gave me 1hour and 5mins of the eppisode the next time 1hour and 30mins and its just by luck that i got the whole eppisode on the third go. I was wondering is there any way to be able to get the whole eppisode on the first go? Its only just started to happen with the last 3 episodes.

    yay! another ep!
    you guys really are slave drivers for us poor transcription trolls lol, just kidding, it’s always fun to transcribe especially when it’s a bit with Becca and Racael. I love the snapecast shirt :D …off to listen.

    Great episode, i loved the SS/HG Love Potion 9 and 3/4.

  9. On July 2nd, 2007 Erin said:

    Awesome episode even though I’m not a Hermione/Snape person, at all, I still enjoyed your other segments. And my heart skipped a beat when you read my letter. :)

  10. On July 3rd, 2007 Caroline A said:

    Do any HG/SS shippers feel vindicated by Evanna Lynch’s confession that she ships Dumbledore and Luna?

    Great episode, I have been waiting for this Potions 9 3/4s for so long. I didn’t get to listen to the episode in the bath as I normally do, but I still feel great after my listen!!!



  11. On July 3rd, 2007 Nancy said:

    I too have been having many problems downloading the episode. I can’t get more than 15 minutes or so through itunes or via direct download. I haven’t had this problem before with Snapecast, have you changed servers or something? Please let us know if there is a reason for this, we would all really like to listen to the episode.

    For those having trouble, Jon has posted the two most recent episodes to a mirror site here:

    First of all, thank you so much for the wonderful episode and the highly anticipated Serverus/Hermione Love Potion 9 3/4. For the lack of HG/SS fan art, I would love to derect all of you to a wonderful artist named Melanie whose work resides at

    She is a very talented artist and has some great work for fanfiction (Phantom of Hogwarts, What E’er Therein Is Promised, A Bit of Before Bed Reading, Luring the Enchantress, Dances with Witches, and the List goes on).

    Love you guys and can’t wait for your next show!
    Chrissy :)

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT LAST!!!!!!! SEVVIE AND MIONE!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!

    KazVL aka Kaz2 is author of “Falling Further In” a WIP that is foundational to the ship–one of the first SSHG I ever read and still my favorite–it can be found on FFN, Fiction Alley, and Obscuros Books, as can a wonderful SSHG short story “Who by Fire”, another classic. However, she is NOT the author of “Grasping at Normality” and its sequel. That is a Kaz, but a different Kaz.

    Three comments: I bookmarked every one of those SS/HG fics, but Letter from Exile seems to have had its page removed. I like the Severus/Hermione ship because we already know them as characters and so authors do have to make their characters comply at least to some degree with canon and it usually takes longer. The third comment concerns the “If Snape were Canadian” round table. I love it! But are we talking politically, culturally, Severus and the Marauders as an allagory of Canada and the US … … you guys can frame it any way you like! Snapecast is two–(you could do it! just another fifteen minutes’ worth of theories, owls or those ridiculous wonderful, what would you call them? The podcast awards for example! Or “Where’s Dumbledore”)–of the best hours of podcast-listening on the internet. Oh, just one more comment: Are you ever going to publish the filks we only get to hear ten seconds of? Snape the Musical or the Christmas ones?

    What a great podcast! I’m kicking myself because I only just discovered you guys. But, I am currently downloading most of your previous shows because I enjoyed your most recent show so much! I’m in heaven listening to you. A podcast just for Snape. What else could anyone ask for?
