For some reason, Iíve never been a fan of song fics. I canít quite pinpoint what it is, but I suspect that itís the random lyrics threaded through the story- they really break up the flow for me Ė and unless I can hear the tune in my head, they make no sense either. :P

However, I actually had a great time reading this. I love the song you chose (it worked so well with the plot), and Iím always going to be thinking of this story if I listen to it from now on!

I liked the way you wrote Snape. You managed to capture all his yearning and love and regrets all into one neat little package, and the overall effect was really quite powerful. The imagery and metaphors were fantastic.

My heart goes out to Severus, as it always does when reading Snape/Lily. Thereís something so pathetic and yet loveable about the tragedy that is Snily. This was a very heartbreaking piece of writing!

One thing Iíd just comment on is that I donít think the dialogue between Snape and Dumbledore at the end is necessary! The story is really great without it, and you donít need it in there.

Iíve had so much fun reading all your stories! You are a truly talented writer. :D Thank you for all your commitment to Ravenclaw and Quoth the Raven *hugs*

Author's Response: Hey Annon!

This review response is incredibly late, and I'm so sorry about that! I'm not sure if you'll even read this, but I really, really appreciate the time you took to read and review this!

I know exactly what you mean about song fics! I don't ever go out of my way to read them, and I can understand you completely when you say they sometimes interrupt the flow and seem to have no real purpose - so I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed this story of mine! :)

I'm lucky I got this song from the challenge I did - I've never heard of this song before either, but as soon as I'd heard it, I knew it was perfect for Snape! I agree with you that any Snily story is always kind of tragic, but I'm glad I was able to convey some of Snape's emotions!

You're not the first person to say that they found the dialogue a bit unnecessary, but you have convinced me to remove it at the very next time I get a chance to edit it - so thank you! Annon, thank you for the really lovely review you left me (along with all the other lovely reviews!) and for the time you've spent on QTR as well :) I really appreciated the reviewing gesture!
