Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
Ugh, heartwrenching. It's fluffy, but it's so sad too, and beautifully so. It's sad because this is the only way these two can ever be together, that there's no other way for her to forgive him or for him to find happiness. I've often wondered whether he blames himself more for her death or for calling her a mudblood - both seem to haunt him equally, forever preventing him from escaping that shadow of guilt for killing the light. You give them a happy ending that just fits. That last line really brought forth the happy tears - you couldn't have found a better way to end this. I will probably end up calling everything "beautiful" and "perfect" throughout my review, so brace yourself.

You've described Snape's situation so perfectly that I could swear you're an avid shipper and have been for years (secretly, of course :P). You captured the details of the relationship as well as the feeling of it - that mix of innocence and longing, the happy childhood memories and the physical desire, which is usually difficult to balance. He's a "grey" character in almost every possible sense, and you've done brilliantly in writing him. Not that I'm at all surprised, of course. ;)

The way that you divided the story was intriguing, and I like the contrast of it, the way that it pulls readers back into the "living" world to the grim scene of death with Lily's eyes guiding Snape home. The style of writing you employed in that section was amazing - all of the green and the tragically pathetic way that he glows at the image of her face, the last thing he thinks about. It definitely created one of those "all the feelings" moments for me, and it was my favourite part of the story, as beautiful as the rest is.

Have you ever considered writing more of this ship? :P You've done amazing work with this one-shot and wrapped it up perfectly with an Eliot bow - it couldn't get better than this. I can see this being canon and I really hope that it is the ending that both of them, all of them, achieved. It's just too perfect. ^_^

Author's Response: I feel like 'heartwrenching' is one of your favorite words. :P

Psh, the afterlife is the only place I'd ever consider Snily to be so I'm glad you recognize how sad it is that it's the only place for them to be together. ;) And I know, fluff (a little bit, at least). Way more than what I'm used to writing, that's for sure.

I am totally okay with everything being beautiful, but as I told Helen in a response to her review - perfect is a standard I'm not quite comfortable with. :P

Ha! Your lies! This was so hard for me to write, even though I sort of hinted at this ship with LWP. I wanted to return to that innocence of their relationship before he called her a Mudblood, before the war tore them apart.

Thank you. I'm glad you liked the contrast and the repetition of the green. All the feels!

I probably won't return to this ship, but you never know. :P I'm so, so happy you liked this. You're such a wonderful friend and a faithful reviewer and I don't know what I would do without you in my life!
