This was very beautiful! A lot of metaphors (which I love) made it slightly hard to understand at times, but some things really got me. A few really beautiful paragraphs:

Could you love a man with the soul of a poet, if he had a face like the back end of a bus? I thought you could have, once, but you chose the face of a god with the soul of a used broom salesman. You resided on the mountain with the other immortals and tossed me crumbs from your banquets.

I had a dream. Her name was Lilith. She walked like fire and talked like diamonds, and she laughed like Aztec gold. She danced just out of my reach and dangled apples over my head, but I could not grasp them. She whispered in my ear but didnít touch me, and when an apple finally fell it was already rotted through.

I have to say that I didn't look at the characters or pairings before I read and afterwards I was like, "Who is this about?!" Then I saw it was Snape/Lily and I see how that really fits in.

I definately don't think you're weird and I really liked this story. It was beautiful and different. Thanks for giving me the chance to experience it.

Author's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review, Johanna! I am really glad you enjoyed this. I was very hesitant to post it, because it's a bit out of my normal way, and it is very weird and at times nearly impossible to understand - so I am really glad to have received such a positive response. It's much darker and more bitter than the stuff I usually write, and definitely a darker interpretation of Lily and the whole Snape/Lily relationship. But I loved writing it and getting inside his twisty mind.

Thanks for pointing out those lines - particularly the second bit you pointed out ("I had a dream. Her name was Lilith...") - that was actually one of the first lines that occurred to me, and the rest of the one-shot really grew outward from that point, so I think that's probably one of my favorite parts as well.

Thanks so much for the fantastic review!
