Gah. Your reviews are always so lovely and so I set out to leave a lovely one of my own, but I'm afraid that I can't comment on this without getting all rambly and gushy and completely useless, because this was absolutely 100% gorgeous.

Gah. I think I'll start every sentence like that, because that's pretty much the mantra that circled around my head while I was reading it. I'm sort of an English nerd, so whenever I see a really gorgeous line I'll just ooh and aah over it for a few moments before continuing. So, keeping that in mind, it took me forever to get through this because it is all just so -pretty- and I wanted to spend time on each line. I think, though, above all else, this is my favorite:

"Familiar green eyes anchored him as he struggled for air, each gasp a measure of the distance he had fallen out of his belovedís favor."

I don't know why, but your metaphor is just... I can't even describe it. It completely tickled me.

Anyway, this was gorgeous. And I love the uniqueness of it, too. I'm all for Sev going to the afterlife and being happy and everything, but the fact that Lily was there was just... so original. I loved the way it was executed.

You're a brilliant writer - don't ever forget that.

Author's Response: You are such a lovely person, thank you for this! It totally made my night. I don't get many random reviews so this was an unexpected and pleasant surprise.

I am totally okay with rambly and gushy as that's how most of my reviews are too. I think we can understand each other that way.

This was definitely an exercise in writing pretty lines so it kind of made me squee when you said how pretty it all was.

Thank you. ^_^ I don't really write Severus very often, especially not with Lily, so this was something new for me and I'm really happy you liked it so much.

I will keep your words with me whenever I start to doubt myself. Thank you.
