ahh, I've meant to get to this since forever! So when I saw the chance in the review battle, I pounced on it. So excited that you wrote a Snily! ;)

I also loved how this tied into the A Cold Heaven verse - story continuity is such a wonderful thing ^-^ As silly as it might seem, I was sort of glad about that - that was James can have Sirius, and Lily can have Severus, and everyone's happy. yay!

Your imagery is beautiful, as always. a neglected boy who found hope in the embrace of a young girl bursting with life and magic, for example. It's so perfect and it really seemed to describe Severus to me.

I also loved how you mentioned how the green eyes were anchoring him as he died - such a perfect little detail to put in there. :)

It was poetic and sweet and absolutely lovely. I really liked it! And I did think the title was great - it worked wonderfully for the story. You should write more Snape/Lily! ;) Lovely job ♥

Author's Response: Hee, I've been waiting for your review! I'm so glad you finally had the opportunity to check out my first (and maybe only) attempt at Snily.

When I was writing ACH, I sort of had an idea of writing a Snily outtake, but the idea of writing this ship that I was so against (except not when it fitted my needs to get James and Sirius together) seemed kind of daunting. I don't remember when but Amanda said she'd try her hand at Remus/Sirius (and she wrote a Jily), so I figured I should attempt to write that outtake I had thought about a couple of years ago. I'm all for happy endings. :)

Thank you so much. That's actually one of my favorite lines so I'm so happy you picked it out.

Snape's death scene was really interesting to write, and I'm not sure if people really understood what I was trying to get at. So, yeah, Harry's green eyes were what were anchoring him in that moment as he died, but the whole bit about the boy was Severus sort of remembering James but then seeing those eyes that reminded him that Harry was not the same boy his father was...if that makes any sense? I guess it's not a huge deal/maybe doesn't make sense, but I figured I'd point it out to at least someone.

Yay, I'm glad you liked it! I think the title worked really well too and I'm happy with it! Um, yeah, this was probably a one-time deal, sorry. :P We'll see!

Thanks for the review. :)
