Well this definitely had a different twist on the Snape/Lily relationship. I feel like we always hear about Snape watching over and wanting Lily, so it was nice to read the roles reversed for once.

I really liked this story a lot, but it did take me a while to fully recognize that it was from the POV of Lily, who is dead. I like the idea of her watching over him though and that she's there, waiting for him, when he dies. She says she hates him, but it's obvious in your story that she does still at least have a soft spot for him if she's been watching over him for the past seventeen years.

This was very good and it was nice to read something different for a change. I think you did a wonderful job here.


Author's Response: Hello! Sorry this response took so long :)

Yeah, I get that sense from reading a lot of Snape/Lily stories, too, which is why I wanted to do something different here. I'm glad you liked it! I wanted to show that Lily is a real, flawed person with her own feelings as well.

I really wanted Lily to have conflicting feelings, to be specific. I wanted the situation to be confusing for her, because it must have been when she was living, even if the only feelings she had for Severus were those relating to friendship. They say that people only come back as ghosts if they have unresolved business in the mortal life, and I like to think that Lily needed to sort some stuff out and see what all she had missed. Hopefully she and Severus both have some sense of resolution there at the end.

Thanks so much for this lovely review!
