Review:IloveNeville says:
It's so interesting reading different people's interpretations of characters. Like Sirius is often characterized as a player, whereas you've played on his darker side, because we know for sure that he's had a tough adolescence. And so many people make Lily this fierce and stubborn girl, but from her actions on the night she died, and the flashbacks of her as a child, we know that she's really a sweet person. In fact, her relationship with Petunia seems kind of like Regulus and Sirius in the first chapter. As mean as Petunia could be, Lily still loved her and wanted to be close to her. I really enjoyed your characterization of her. I loved the conversation between her and James. It was so awkward, but just from that scene I'm already in love with him. I can't wait to learn more about him. I love the names of Lily's friends. Ellery Edelstock and Celestine DeMarco. They're very different but still fitting to the Harry Potter world. The conversation with Severus broke my heart; he seemed genuinely regretful. I'm curious to see where you go with that and how you tackle his relationship with the young followers of Voldemort.

Author's Response: Hi again!

I do think you make a point about the Regulus/Sirius and Lily/Petunia dynamics. I guess they are pretty similar! I'm happy that the characterization for both of my main characters seemed to work well for you. I always try to stay away from the cliches.

I'm a Snape/Lily shipper, so it's kind of weird how much I'm enjoying writing James/Lily for this story. This chapter was especially fun, because they're so awkward and James has clearly changed from his fifth-year self.

I'm glad you like Lily's friends, too, and the scene with Severus. It was difficult to write that, but I'm enjoying the challenge of the James/Lily/Snape dynamic. Be sure to keep a close eye on all of them in chapters to come :)

Thanks again for another lovely review!
