Review:Jess the Enthusiast says:
Hi there! This is Jess from the forums with your John Green Quote Challenge review; I am so sorry for the lateness! I've just been so busy and lazy lately but I'm here now haha. First off, thank you so much for entering my challenge!

So I was extremely excited when I saw that this was a Jily oneshot, because, well, Jily is my OTP! Seriously, they're my absolute favorite :)

I really liked the context in which you used the quote I gave you; it truly is a treacherous thing to think that a person is more than a person and in many fanfiction stories, James makes quite a habit of doing that in regards to Lily. It was really nice that we got a glimpse into her flaws and that her flaws are what he really likes about her rather than her imagined "perfection."

This oneshot was really sweet and very fluffy - extremely cute! Everything James said was really adorable and romantic. I also really appreciated how Lily didn't do the formulaic "I hate you Potter! Oh wait you got really hot and you just told me that you love so I love you too!" Thank you; I really can't stand Jily stories like that haha. My only criticism would be that I wish there was a bit more characterization that was unique to your own James and Lily. They had a lot of qualities that are seen in other fan fictions and there's nothing wrong with that; I just wish I could learn more about /your/ characters if that makes sense. But it was really good; I enjoyed this!

Thank you so much for entering this challenge! Hope you had fun writing it :D

10/10

Author's Response: Hi Jess!

Haha, Jily is my favorite - always! There are no words to describe my adoration for this ship - it is the ultimate of all OTPs, in my opinion.

Thank you! For some reason, the quote just screamed Jily because I hate all those cliches you mentioned about James and Lily. It's just not how I imagined them at all. Thanks for the criticism, I totally get what you were trying to say. Thanks for the review!
