Review:Lyn Midnight says:
Oh. My. God. Seriously, you should have put a warning somewhere. This is one of very few stories that has actually made my eyes tear up. It is so sad. I read it so fast, I wasn’t even aware it was just a story, but not real! The words – so beautiful, powerful, floating, killing. Bah, it woke up the poet in me. Haha.

Now, I can’t find many words for it, but you have written something that is closer to perfection than many stories put on paper. I think I said that ‘Astute Observations’ was your best, but I have to say that this one surpasses them all! I haven’t been much in the Sirius/Lily mood for a long time, and so I thought I’d leave this for later, but now I see that the ship doesn’t even matter. The way it’s written … the emotion and sadness and guilt … it should win ‘Best One-Shot’ award, like EVER! That’s it!

Oh, and I really appreciated this sentence: “It would be far easier to be a writer, to write out all the anger and hate and make it all go away with a crumpling of paper and a mind at rest.” Bagged best line ever, too. :P

I think I will have to read it again, and … frame it or something. That’s it, I am reading everything you ever wrote! *excited and still tearful*

Author's Response: *Warning: dangerously depressing story ahead* Would that work, you think? :P A lot of emotion when into writing this story, though it didn't take long to write, nor was it very painful. It just all came out in one sitting, I think, with a very surprising result (I've been told that it's a very realistic story, which is what always surprised me). Also surprising is that I don't actually ship this ship, which perhaps made it easier to write about how it fell apart. Or, as you said, the characters don't matter as much as the emotions.

It's absolutely wonderful to hear that you enjoyed reading this so much and that the story was so moving for you. While it's sad that the story made you cry, I'm always pleased when reviewers say that it did, as it means I did something right. ^_^ Thank you, Lyn!
