I can't deny that I'm a little confused at this point. The pairing listed is Lily/James but the summary implies that the couple is merely working towards friendship. Is that true? If it is, it is probably best to change the pairing from L/J to J/OC. It would make sense that they are moving towards friendship given the facts as you've set them up. Right now they're not together *at all* and James feels less than nothing towards Lily. Plus, the time has well passed for Harry to have been born much less conceived ( in canon he was born only two years after they were out of Hogwarts). And even if his girlfriend dies, James is going to need a lot of time to get over her and fall in love again.

Author's Response: Hello, thanks so much for taking the time to review. Okay - firstly, this is still a lily/james fic - the characters timelines are just stretched out a bit - (i.e. they will meet the same sticky end only a little older - I don't think it damages canon too much).
The summary is like that so the entire plot isn't given away, particularly all of Lily's confusion in the earlier chapters.
I agree, at this stage they're not together, but we're still only 3 chapters in and remember this is Lily's pov - we have no idea what James is really doing/thinking in regards to Lily. Also, James' relationship/extent of his feelings are still not made clear at this stage - just alluded to by Sirius/ assumptions made by Lily.
My advice is...trust me and stick with it. All will become clear!
Thanks again for your feedback - lovely long review.
xx
