Helen!

Only you could make me like Remus/Lily. I mean that. You have an uncanny ability to write ships so amazingly well that I immediately begin to like that ship. Scorpius/Dominique ring any bells here?

Your characterizations were amazing. Honestly. Remus was spot on perfect the entire way. I absolutely adored him. And you wrote him so adorably and sweet that I wanted to jump into the story and give him a big bear hug. Lily was great, too. It makes me cringe to see her written as a neurotic and crazy loony, so I was incredibly happy to see this soft, sensitive side of her. It was perfect.

I loved their interactions and dialogue. It was a little bit awkward and I mean that in the best way because I felt it right that they would be a little bit awkward at first. But they really connected, and I could feel that while reading.

Another great touch was that you mentioned how Remus knew that it would likely not be a lasting thing. We all know Lily is meant to be with James, but I just love that you decided to explore other aspects of what might have happened in their adolescence.

This is an absolutely gorgeous story, Helen. You have done it again. And always remember that I am your number one fangirl(:

Author's Response: Erica! I'm sorry how long it took me to reply to this review. If it's any help, it's only because it's absolutely amazing and I wanted to give it a decent response.

Remus/Lily is definately a strange ship, I'm not sure how I feel about it and like you said that is why I didn't write it as a lasting thing. Thank you so much for being open minded and giving it a go though! :D And wow, that you think I write ships convincingly means a lot. I'm always nervous about romance :)

WHEE YOU THOUGHT I WROTE REMUS GOOD. I don't think I need to do anything extra to Remus to make him huggable, he's adorable. :) Thank you so much. But even more, that you liked this side of Lily was reassuring. Personally, I don't/didn't feel the characterization was very strong. I find her such a hard character to write! I was worried she might be too soppy in this, but that you were able to believe in that side to her is really reassuring.

Haha, glad to hear it! Yes, awkward is good!! I don't necessarily see Remus as a ladies man, and I thought he might be a bit thrown off by the whole situation! So happy you felt they connected! :)

You are so so kind Erica. This review really made my day, your reviews are absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for leaving this indepth review. This is definately going in that 'favourite review' thread :D THANK YOU ERICK!
