Hi there! It's Amber (AmbezBambez) with your review!

Oh my flipping Merlin. The imagery. The emotion. The story. I have no idea what you did, TenthWeasley, but I'm sad now and a tear just left my eye. I knew what to expect...whenever Lily and James Potter are thrown in the same summary as "Halloween", it can't be good. I braced myself, even. But everything was so darned poetic.

You brought Lily and James to life. They aren't flimsy, throw-away-sticky-note type of characters, but characters so well-built they honestly stick out on the page. For instance, James playfully saying, "No one's going to see them" about the pumpkins and bats, certainly had a double meaning, and it was hummmann. The reason for Lily hanging them up anyway was realisiticcc. I just felt so bad for them, but then again, not really, because even though they were cooped up in their house all day, they did appear genuinely happy.

Poor Harry in that costume! James really does try, doesn't he? And then...about thirty seconds of reading time later...Voldemort comes in and kills them all? Deep, dude. Very deep.

My favourite part of this one-shot would have to be the end though (Lily's reaction). The descriptions were absolute poetry, and when it described her heart beating and how scared she felt, I felt the same way too.

"And then a flash of green light, and Lily Potter was gone. Another flash - a terrible scream, a baby's wail - and the light from the jack o' lantern guttered and was extinguished, a wisp of smoke curling to the open heavens where Harry's nursery had stood intact only moments before."

Aaahhh! That's epic! Just...goodness me...the best last paragraph I've ever heard in the history of forever? How do you come up with this stuff?

No criticism. Enjoy!
