I knew from the summary alone that this would blow me away and it did. As I sit here with tears in my eyes, I wonder how you managed to finish this without breaking down yourself.

It was absolutely lovely.

How would it feel to talk to the one who mattered the most to you even if you hadn't seen/heard from them in so many years? They or at least Snape managed to say all that he had on his chest for all those years and was able to let go. I liked that she came over in his portrait after their talk. She put aside her biases and opinions and forgave him. On his part, he finally came to terms with everything that happened between them and accepted. They were, as you said, both at peace.

I like that it was young Lily that painted her namesake. I don't think it would've been so meaningful had her siblings done it.

The one thing that I found a bit strange though, was that Snape called James Potter by his first name. It's so unlike him, I think. Same goes for Harry. Is this his way of coming to terms? Of accepting?

You did a great job with this. You had brilliant story idea and ran with it and you should be proud.

Author's Response: Wow. What an amazing review :) Oh, I didn't. I cried the whole way through writing this thing, and it means a lot that it's impacted you the same way. It was just something I had to write, to bring a sense of closure to their story. And you're right, it is unlike Snape to call James by his first name, or at least, it was unlike the old Snape. As you've picked up, it's part of his way of accepting things and moving on. There was a lot behind that comment about young Lily painting James. Thank you so much for this review, it's probably one of the most meaningful I've ever recieved :)
