Hello foresakenphoenix

All I can say is...wow! This was absolutely stunning; wherever did you learn to write like this? Everything from the colourful imagery to the poetic timing is, for lack of a better word, perfect. I really can't fault you on it, which is strange because that never usually happens when I read somebody's story on here so kudos for that.

I strongly despise the James/Lily ship (it's been overused to the point where it completely sickens me) so I'll welcome any alternative with open arms and I have to admit; your story may have just made me fall in love with the Snape/Lily ship that little bit more. Admittedly, the whole prospect of Lily choosing Snape over James is a tad bit unrealistic for me personally but I don't even care; if it's something I prefer then any obligation to side with realism goes completely out of the window.

I was particularly impressed by your characterisation of Snape. He's my favourite character in the entire series so for me if a story doesn't characterise him well enough then I'll refuse to read it. You got him down to a tee though and ditto with Lily. I simply cannot fault this story; you should be so proud of it.

Author's Response: Hey JessiesGirl,

Thank you so much. I must admit that this comes with years and years of practice, and I'm still learning new things every day! I'm so happy that you loved this story of mine so much.

Aw, that's too bad. Jily is one of my favorite pairings, so I'm sorry to hear that fanfiction has ruined it for you. I'm actually not a huge fan of the Snape/Lily pairing, haha, so I'm glad I could write it convincingly enough. I don't know, I kind of see Snape as Lily's first love that she never really got over, despite his cruelty (at least in this case). Mostly it was just an excuse so I could ship James/Sirius in my other fic and the revelation of Snape's feelings for Lily kind of spurred on the Snily pairing from there.

I was pretty terrified to write Snape, to be honest. I'm so used to writing the Marauders that writing anyone else is scary, especially when people like you, who adore his character, are reading my work. I'm always worried that I didn't do your favorite character justice. I'm thrilled that you loved him.

Thank you so, so much for your kind words. This was such a sweet, lovely review. :)
