Review:EnigmaticEyes16 says:
This was a lovely little one-shot. I must say, while I normally don't read James/Lily, I keep coming across little treasures like this that make me happy.

This was wonderful bordering-sad story, although I like how you add some humor at key moments. Like at the beginning with the weatherman, and at the end with Sprout. Those certainly light the mood just enough to keep the story from being too dreary. Really, I love the idea of James and Lily worrying about the war before it's really happened, and while planning their wedding no less. And you portrayed a nice little window into James' mind, and I liked how he didn't really believe in the war, but was doing it for Lily. To protect Lily because he loved her more than anything else. And I enjoyed his comments about Snape, because neither he nor Lily know what we know, and that's how much Snape really did love Lily, even though he worked for a man who wanted to get rid of people like her.

It was all very good and very well written, I think you really did do both characters justice.

Author's Response: Hey! :)

I'm glad you liked the little touches of humor. I know James grew up a lot, but in designing his character here, I felt like it would be essential to include a little bit of lightheartedness in there.

Yeah, the war is an important theme for me when it comes to James and Lily, and all stories that occur in the Marauders' era. Though these piece was about both of them, I worked harder to get into James's head than Lily's because I've written Lily before (in a way). I really do feel like the people closest to him are the reason he fights in the war, and I like the parallel you drew between him and Snape. I'm glad someone else can appreciate the value of the love Snape had for Lily! :)

Thanks for your kind review!
