Review:Marzipan says:
Ah, I'm totally on board with Lily's love of autumn! I'm really enjoying your characterization of Lily, she seems very sure of herself, but at the same time she also has this dreamy,whimsical side to her too. Nice to see her interacting with the Marauders, especially separately - I'm sure the four boys weren't attached at the hip all the time, after all! I especially enjoyed her and Remus' conversation about Sirius - it said so much not only about the Blacks, but about Remus and Lily as well.

I love how you ended this chapter, with the run-in between Lily and Severus. Poor Severus, he doesn't sound like he's been doing well at all. I really hope he and Lily can work things out - and from the sounds of it Lily might hope so too, even if she is currently too angry with him to admit it to herself.

Another great chapter, Amanda!

Author's Response: It's so lovely that you like my Lily! (Way too much alliteration in that sentence, oof.) Not everyone has been a fan of that whimsical-ish side, but hopefully you can see that those traits are only one side of a more complex character. It's also good that you liked her conversation with Remus; I was a little worried when I was writing it that it seemed too much like filler, but I did intend for it to show that canon-based friendship between them. I would think that in the initial stages of Lily's friendship with James (and certainly before that), she wouldn't just dive in and get close to all of the Marauders, especially not after years of chastising their behavior.

No, he really hasn't. He's my favorite character, and it hurts my heart a bit to treat him this way, but I've been using this story to challenge myself to really explore his dark side, the parts of him that Lily could never really have loved. At this point, though, there does still seem to be some hope there :)

Thanks for another lovely review!
