Hey! I saw the link to this story in the status updates, and I thought I would come by to read and review. :) This is my favourite type of Snily. Well, okay, it's actually the only type of Snily I like: unrequited! :P

Your descriptive language in this was really lovely--it was wonderful how you used the seasons as metaphors. And in each section, I knew exactly what you were trying to get at, which is pretty amazing. I imagine it would be difficult to hit upon all these different aspects and make them ring true, but you've done a great job. The best part, in my opinion, was that I didn't feel like this was OOC for Snape. It was all twisted with a sort of bitterness and sting that kept it from being too flowery or romantic. Even the title gets that across--it's not necessarily about love; it's about greed.

Great work!

Author's Response: Hello! Thanks so much for this :) And same - this is the only Snily I can get into!

This is totally different to my other stories, so I'm so glad it came accross well. I was so worried Snape would be OOC, or too "flowery" like you say. And you hit on exactly what I'm going for - I was never totally comfortable with Snapes love for Lily because I thought it was based on that greed, and idealism.

Thank you so much for reviewing, its made me feel more confident about the story :)
