Yay first review! And yay for starting to ship Snily! ♥

I thought you did a great job of describing what death felt like for Snape here. It was really powerful for me to see his split-second mental associations between pain and his memories of Lily, and they really jabbed at me like a knife, so I could imagine what he was experiencing quite tangibly.

Wow, the last half of this really made me feel quite emotional. It feels really accurate to me to describe Snape as being unsure and feeling awkward experiencing emotions that he's been holding back for years, and I got really drawn in when he finally saw Lily again, because I think we can all imagine a person who has passed on that we would love to see again, and my love for Snily compounded that for me here.

I love how you described every facet of Lily, so that we got to experience her along with Severus, who has missed her for so long. And I even loved the ending -- I agree, it would be like Lily not to return his words, but to simultaneously welcome him in and make him feel like he's in heaven all the same. It's so great to read such a warm happy ending.

Wonderful! :)

Author's Response: As far as unrequited love goes, Snily is defiantly up there at the top :D

Thank you! It was always a headcanon of mine that Snape only held on as long as he did while he was dying because of Lily so I'm glad I got that across!

I always thought that everyone's Heaven was different and of course, Snape's heavens would be a place where he could spend forever with Lily.

THank you!
