Review:MajiKat says:
so when the sky opened up and rained down pearls, seducing me with promises of a world in which I did not belong, I raised my hands and opened my mouth and swallowed the illusion whole.

that is beautiful! this whole thing is beautiful! not weird in the slightest! i really appreciate a touch of obscurity in short pieces (as you know from reading my bizarre-ness, lol).

lilith, venus and the siren. PERFECT! absolutely perfect for this piece and this, i think, is the first time I have truly pities snape, other than in DH of course. others have made me feel compassion for him but this was different. i really do pity him - what dark thoughts he has lurking in his head! it makes you think of the terrible things that have been done to him.

this was amazing. i loved it and i am adding it to favs!

Author's Response: Thanks so much, Kate! I really admire what you do with dark fics, and your writing style, so it's a really good feeling to know you enjoyed a piece of mine that's darker and more obscure than I usually write. It's super flattering!

I am really glad you liked my use of Lilith, Venus, and the Siren. As I was delving into the extremely dark abyss of Snape's psyche here, I was thinking that some part of him must harbor a lot of bitterness for Lily, despite everything else he feels for her. And basically every piece of Snape fiction paints Lily in his mind as this perfect, angelic creature, and he's just so incredibly in awe of her, can never deserve her, etc...but I think that in his bitterness and anger there must be times when he thinks of her in a very unflattering way, like she's a tease and the source of all his pain. So that's what I was experimenting with her, at least in part.

Thanks again! Your review made me so happy (and I'm sorry I took so long to respond!!)
