Hey Liza, Zinny here for another (super late) review! I promise I'll be quicker with the others, I've just been swamped with work now that the end of term is quickly approaching.

Anywho, I really liked this one as well! I think it's a fantastic little companion piece to your "green" story, and I'm enjoying this take on different colors you have going on here. I loved the imagery you used - where he was a canvas, and she the colors that painted him. It was very poetic and clever and I think it fit well within the story.

But when she came into his life, she brought her colors with her. And she painted on that black canvas making it beautiful and a wonder to behold.

When she left, she took her colors with her.

^ I loved that bit to pieces! It was so, so pretty and heartbreaking to think that once she's gone from his life, so is all the color and beauty of the world. That she was the embodiment of beauty and color for him is very touching, and a very beautiful connection.

Great job with this, Liza! I can't wait to read the rest of your stuff ♥

Author's Response: Aloha Zinny! :-) Oh, it's fine. Your reviews are lovely, so it doesn't matter when I get them. And I know about how RL has the pesky habit of getting in the way sometimes.

Thank you! I actually didn't think of it as a companion piece for a long time - not until I realized they were both focused on colours and Snape/Lily. :P Hehe. I was going through a colour faze - it's very easy to relate things to colours. After all, we see colour every day and it effects us in some way or the other.

I'm so glad you liked that line! You flatter me, dear, you really do. Snape had a hard life, that's well known, and he had a very dark life. For him, Lily was just so bright and happy and beautiful. And she truly did paint on him with her vivid colours - she showed him the beauty of the world. That's a very special gift to give to someone. He depended on her so much; his love for her was borderline obsessive at some points. So I think when Lily left, it really hit Severus hard. He could no longer see the beauty of the world - all the colours - because Lily wasn't there with him. I hope this one-shot reflected that in some ways, and it seems it has! ^_^ Thanks for the review, dear.
