Review:BarbaraPotty says:
I must say that a though of Lily having a thing going with Sirius crossed my mind once and I almost wrote it, but then I couldn't do it to her. But it returned to me now...

I think it's because we hear about two best friends who did everything together...but we hear only about one girl. So it kind of naturally follows...

I also like very much the actual topic of this fic, the deciding moment Sirius had to go through. Lily seem to be very popular as a death-guide, I've seen it several times already, although of course, normally it's Severus who dies.

I usually have issues with the death fics, because I think death to be way above things like this - the crushes we had in life - but somehow, I didn't mind with this one. Maybe because it was so masterfully written and psychologically well done...I could almost see that relationship (that might also be thanks to my many mistress experiences, but I'd rather not go there :D), you pictured it very realistically.

And, eh, what else can I say...it was just a brilliant story.

Author's Response: It's one of those ships that makes sense, but is quite iffy, not only because of canon, but because of the loyalties at stake in writing it. Maybe it's because James is left out of the books, while Sirius gets to tell his side of things. And, like you state, two extremely close friends, yet Sirius never mentions having a relationship.

Yes, the good old death fic. :P Can be a nightmare, but also might work out. I can't take too much credit for how this one worked - some of the idea came from "King's Cross" in DH, while another part of it came from a story by forsakenphoenix, which also looked at the afterlife for the Marauders. My story here is very strange, and I don't think I could write another like it again for that reason. It's a great compliment that you liked it and saw through the death part into the relationship. When writing this, I was so into Sirius trying to get back his memory, that I didn't look into the relationship part as much as I should have. Yet I'm really glad that it sounded right. :)

Thanks so much for this review, Barbara. It means a lot. ^_^
