I seriously love your writing. This was my first Lily/Severus fic and I picked it from the Recommended 'Ships list and I'm very happy that I did.

The innocence and naivety of the start of the story was completely adorable. The play "real-life" the children got up to which was at the same time completely real to them was cute and brought a nostalgic feeling back for me when I played "house" and had pretend husbands and kids (though I could never actually get any boys to play the part).

Severus' absolute love for Lily is something that brought heartache to me in reading the books again after finding out in the books exactly what Lily was to him. It, to me, is a beautiful love, that he would be true to her always through all the pain and treachery he was involved in.

I can't even pick a favorite line because EVERYTHING is literally wonderfully written. The descriptions (like comparing Petunia's rocking to that of the sign), to the emotions involved with everyone, to the absolute sadness at the end. Without even going into it that much, you gave me just that much more understanding of how Sev lived his life as a child, miserable at home but with the one beacon of hope that was Lily.

And Lily, I like to think that she did think back on all her times with Severus, the sad and happy ones, even when she was with James. How lucky for her to be loved so well by two good men.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking a chance with Lily and Severus by reading MY fic. What an honor!!

I was EXACTLY thinking about "house" when I wrote this. This story was quite strange...I was given a word and a pairing as a prompt (agony / Sev&Lily) and had to go with it. I think there is nothing more agonizing than the broken heart of a child.and Severus fits the bill especially, even if he and Lily have different kinds of Agony in their childhood.

And well said at the end--I do think Lily was very blessed...despite the problems she had experienced with Sev. He came through for her in the end ;)

Thanks so much for your kind review!
