Review:Elphaba and Boyfriends says:
Another great chapter! I thought Snape was a little too mean at first, until it became clear that he was jealous of Remus, and then his behavior made perfect sense.

I think you write Lily and Snape really well in this chapter, and I like that you have Lily be the first one to befriend him on the train, rather than James and Sirius. I've wondered if they wouldn't have been friends if they hadn't been sorted into Griffyndor together, just because their personalities are so outwardly different.

I also really like how snide and sarcastic Snape is about everything, but ends up joining in anyway because of Lily.

I'm really enjoying this story, thanks for sharing it! :)

Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks so much for being my first reviewer for this chapter, I really appreciate it!

I'm glad you thought I did Snape well (he sort of caused me problems at bit). When I wrote this scene I thought, OK, this is right after James and Sirius insulted Snape, and he and Lily left to find another place to seat, so Snape is angry about what had happened with James and Sirius. Then he sees Lily, his best friend, the one light in his dark childhood, get on really well with someone else, so he is slightly jealous of that, and he's also afraid of losing her too (or at least that is what I reasoned), afraid that she will make new friends and leave him.

I know what you mean about Snape and Lily being so different, yet being such good friends, but the way I figure it is that when Snape is alone with Lily he is really quite nice, but it's just when he's around others that he puts on that angry persona, and becomes snide and sarcastic. He's influenced by those around him, or so I see it anyway :-)

Thanks so much again for the review, I really appreciate it! :-)
