I hav to say that I really enjoyed your portrayal of Snape, who is a very complex and difficult character to write. I liked how you inocrporated how he blamed himself for Lily's death and every time he saw Harry it reminded himself of his failingsand continued a self destructive cycle that made him seem outwardly bitter and lashing out at those around him. He is a very layered character with some complex emotional turmoil, and you were able to make that come accross in such a short story, so major credit for that.

James and Lily's entrance into the story was well placed as well. Lily very often comes off as pretty Mary Sue-ish, but here she definetely wasn't. i liked how you showed that she had some flaws, but Snape loved her in spite of that.

I'm generally not a fan of Snap/Lily, but this was a good read.

Author's Response: Hi there!
I'm glad you liked my portrayal of Snape, he WAS extremely difficult to write!
Lily is always seen as 'perfect' and she never does any harm, but she was human and she did have faults, and I wanted to convey that Snape didn't love her because she was perfect, he loved because she was imperfect.
Wow, that's so cliche! :p
Anyway, don't worry, I'm not a Snape/Lily fan either, never in a million years but I'm glad that you thought this was a good read. :)
Thanks for the review! :D
