It was beautiful...

I normally do not read a story for a great multitude of reasons, one of which is if it appears to short. I have no problem with one-shots, but if I feel that they are not long enough to fit in what needs to be said and felt, then I will not bother. But when I saw this story I simply couldn't resist, and I think I am glad to have taken the time to read it.

The way in which it was written had an almost poetic feel to it, the kind that could, at the same time as making you feel so distant that you know the character is beyond help, you feel such a closeness that you can actually tell what is going through thier mind, which is exactly what is happening here.

The reader is brough directly into Snape's own mind so that they can experience almost first hand the torturous depths of
his mind, the grief and guilt that he feels, and the love that lives on within him, however tragically it may do so.

Snape is by far my favorite character, and I have long shipped Snape/Lily. However, I always have trouble finding a story in which he is protrayed just right.

Yours, however, was amazing. It did not seem entirely plausible, and there were a few moments when I felt that the characterization of either Snape or Lily was far to unrealistic and not something that would be found in canon. However, the little things set aside, when you look at it overall you do get the perfect impression of how I believe Snape must have been feeling and how much he truly loved her.

And for that, I applaud you.

Author's Response: Oh, well thank you very much for taking the time to read my little story here =) I very much appreciate it, and this lovely, seemingly very thought out review!

I'm so pleased you liked it; it happens to be my personal favourite of my own writing.

I too love Snape/Lily. Always have. I actually really don't like the whole James/Lily ship. It seems entirely unlikely.

I'm glad that you can look past the little details. I did work quite hard to get Snape in character, but there's always room for improvement =)

Thanks again, so much, for this fabulous review!
