Wow. That was absolutely terrific. I loved the way you characterized Snape's emotions. They were logical, very Snape, but with such emotion that, until very recently, we hadn't known Snape was capable of.
I find Severus Snape a hard character to write, myself. I think that he is excruciatingly difficult, truth be told. Maybe that's just me, because our minds work in completely different ways, mine and Snape's [yeah, he's fictional, but you get what I mean, right?]. Or maybe you find him hard too? Either way, you did it. And very well, I might add.
The little dialog there was was really fantastic. It didn't take away from the story, like dialog tends to do. It added the feeling of loss--and, when one has not suffered loss recently, that can be a hard thing to do. Hats off to you.
It was my opinion before Snape/Lily that he had some sort of feeling for her. Even if they weren't returned [which, obviously they were--to a degree]. It makes sense. Explains his bitterness towards Harry. Gives Snape more reason to pretend to dislike Harry than just a fatherly feud.
Fantastic wording and just the right amount of description, I'll say. :D

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I'm so glad you liked it!
I agree with you. I find Severus Snape very difficult to write. To be perfectly honest, I had first started this peice out as a random pairing, of anyone, no one in particular. Then I realized it would fit Snape and Lily perfectly, so I changed it around a bit to make it more "them". That would be the reason I want my characterization critiqued. So, I'm very happy to hear I wrote him well =)
And don't worry, I know what you meant...I get way too attached to characters myself...

Good. The dialogue is always a hard point for me...I'm never sure if it fits, or if it's enough. Thank you again!

Mine as well. He had to...I knew there had to be something there...I agree with you completely on those points.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review!

xx Lily
