Wow.

That was completely amazing. This is one of those stories that make you sit there in awe as your brain processes everything. I sat here like a complete idiot for a good ten minutes, staring at the author's note and thinking over and over again 'Wow. That was epic.'

I always thought that you had a skill for imagery when it comes to stories. I never took much notice of it though when I read Vital because I just considered it as one of the many talents you had. But now, take away all the dialogues, oh man, you can blow people's mind away with your talent in under one paragraph.

The story is fantastic. I didn't realise that it was a James/Lily story until I got to the middle. (Silly me for not reading the summary or the information at the top.) I think it is very fitting that Lily would feel such a prisoner in her own home because her attitude and character. She likes to have freedom, and the house gave her everything but that. James, on the other hand, is completely 'captivated', for lack of better word, with Harry. He must've been a great father, if only he -both of them- lived to see the many good and great things Harry has done. *sigh*

Like said before, I thought the story is really fantastic. This is going under my favourites (not counted as your prize) simply because it is amazing. Its something I would love to go back and read over and over again.

Stay awesome,

Author's Response: Hi Izzy! First I just wanted to say that I totally thought I'd already responded to this review, but I realized that I hadn't. I don't know what happened, but I'm sorry it took me so long to respond!

Anyways, thank you so much! It is wonderful to hear that you had that reaction to this story. I know that I've definitely felt that way about other author's works before, and I love stories that make you think. So to hear that you felt that about some of my writing really is great!

Thank you for that! My style does change from when I'm writing Vital (a longer chaptered story) to a one-shot like this one. I enjoy trying to create something that is more reflective and metaphoric and descriptive and that doesn't need to rely on the build up of a plot to be interesting.

Actually, I also wrote this for another challenge, which specified that there be some mystery as to whom the narrator (or focus) is. So, while you could have found that out by the summary, it's a good thing that there was that bit of mystery for the first part of this :) I agree with that as well, James and Lily both would have been great parents. It's interesting to explore that might have been with James and Lily because I feel like they had to be such extraordinary people to be so brave at such a young age.

Again, thank you so much for this review, and for hosting the challenge in the first place. I am so happy that you enjoyed reading it, and really don't know how to coherently respond to this praise. ♥
