Oooh, Snape afterlife! I wanted to check this out. I admit I'm not the biggest fan of putting Lily on a pedestal, because sometimes she seems more like a prize than a girl, a bit of a flat perfection. I think I can see it for Snape's personal heaven though. I kind of imagine this Lily as this idealized angel of his, and there's something really bittersweet about finally attaining that happiness that escaped him for so long. He's held onto her as that bit of good in him. She's what he lived for and what he died for, and if anything, he can at last be at peace with himself as best as he can.

I love the way you set the afterlife, by the way - it reminds me of their youth!



Author's Response: I can see where you're coming from on the whole...putting Lily on a pedestal thing. It's kind of hard to get out of that mindset, I think, especially in this sort of setting and from this POV.

I really wanted to give Snape that bit of redemption that he couldn't get while living, and since I had sort of already written Snape/Lily into my other storyline, this sort of just bloomed from that. I like happy endings so I was glad I could give Snape his.

The afterlife was meant to be reminiscent of their youth so it's good you picked up on that. Thanks, Gina! :)
