First of all, I need to say (directed to Dan's review) that I will NOT like you once my tissues are gone! My heart is broken! Broken hearts don't heal quickly!

If I *did* forgive you for breaking my heart, I would tell you that it means so much to me that you dedicated this to me ♥ That was so sweet of you, and gah. You just got me all feelsy from the start.

As soon as I realized Harry was already alive, I figured what the secret would be. I've always wondered something like that. Or wondered if they thought about alternatives when they learned they were pregnant with Harry. They were at such a terrible time in their lives. So much darkness was around them, so much danger and death that I think it's safe to assume that Harry wasn't a planned baby. haha. But this, the idea of Lily not only being protective of Harry, but the new baby that's growing inside her, is SO heart breaking :(.

James dying without ever knowing that they were going to have another baby... honestly, I don't know what's more painful. I almost think it's better he died without knowing. But then he deserved to know and and and why are you doing this to me ;(.

I love the way you portrayed the more stressful time of their lives. It's unrealistic to think that this didn't cause fights. We take out our anger on the people that love us the most, because we know they'll still ALWAYS love us. But that doesn't make it any easier, because Lily's also frustrated and hurting, and doesn't know how to deal with it. Of course it's sad seeing them at odds, but it's realistic. That's what I love the most. When Lily and James are shown as realistic, human people. Not these perfect saints. They got married young. They were in the middle of a war. They had a baby young. That's going to cause so much stress.

This was such a touching and well written piece. It breaks my heart every time I imagine what these two lovers had to have been feeling and thinking those few moments before it ended and and you've brought all those feelings right to the surface and I am NOT going to get over this :(.

Thank you so much for writing this ♥ It was so beautiful, and one day I think I may forgive you for reminding me how terribly sad the end is :(.

Author's Response: Jami!

I'm sorry for breaking your heart. I swear I didn't mean to but alas, that's what JKR wrote. Well, minus the fake rumor of course. When DH came out and it had the grave for Lily and James, I did the math and was extremely sad that they had died when they were only 21.

I have to say, I think too that Harry was an "oopsie" baby. I'm sure Lily was smart enough to realize that having children would be out of the question during a time of war. Then again, perhaps they felt it necessary to start a family just in case the other one died before having chance. I wanted to explore Lily having second thoughts when it comes to the child, even James finding out and suggesting an alternative route but I figured that topic would not only bumped up this to M rating but also not go so very well with the staff. Lily was happy, believe but in times like these...well you know.

I'm sure that James being cooped up in that house was very...aggravating. Specially when Dumbledore took the invisibility cloak making it impossible for him to leave. He understood WHY he had to hide but that doesn't mean that he wasn't selfish. He was young! Of course he would want to be out there, fighting in the war. But that frustration just kept on growing and growing and, like Dan said, he took it out on the only person there that he could: Lily.

I had to add the lines from the movie because she was basically saying goodbye to Harry. She knew she was not going to walk out of that room alive. And the whole idea and her lines are indeed very heartbreaking.

I'm glad you like it! Despite breaking your heart I figured you would enjoy reading this. I'll make it up to you...next time I write a Lily/James fic it'll be a fluffy/romantic comedy. XD

Until next time, Jami!
