Hey! I'm back to catch up some more! (Sidebar - I'm excited for your new Regulus one-shot! Eeeep!)

I see now why Lily being disabled makes so much sense - she's got that in common with Moody. Both of them are broken in ways that others cannot imagine, and from this chapter, in ways that I sense that neither of them understand fully just yet.

This appears to be non-chronological - if I'm understanding correctly, this instance represents a unique travel for Lily, but Moody recognizes that she has come through before and is reminding her of the time into which she has passed in this journey, the time that marks the end of his time. It's so sad to imagine that, and I feel for Lily, trying to realize things a bit faster than she perhaps can, and simultaneously knowing and not knowing what to make of Moody here. You've definitely done a good job of drawing me in and making me feel tumbled along, just like Lily.

I'm interested to see where Lily will go from here, and to watch her relationship with Moody grow. I hope I'll have a chance soon to continue reading!


Author's Response: It's great to see that you're continuing with this story, Amanda, and even better that you're enjoying it! There is a lot to this story, and it's always interesting for me to follow readers through to see what they pick up and what surprises them. :D

The fact that both of them are "damaged" inside and out brings them together more easily. I don't think Lily could ever really connect with someone who was "whole" because she has too deeply internalized her injury - she would always find herself lacking, never equal. But with Moody, she finally finds someone like her, and it draws her closer to him.

When I first drew out the dates for each portion of this story, I had it moving in two directions at once - forward for Moody and backwards for Lily. It makes for a very difficult situation for Lily because, as she knows him more, he knows her less (this part was inspired by Doctor Who *is a nerd*), so at this point in the story, Moody knows everything, but he can't tell Lily without breaking the rules of time. It's very sad for both of them - for Moody because this is the last time he will see her and for Lily because, from this point onward, she will know how his story ends. It made for a turbulent and emotional story to write.

Thank you again for reading and reviewing! It's wonderful to hear that you're interested in continuing on, and I look forward to hearing what you think of the rest. ^_^
