Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
That day, I learned that indifference was the opposite of love rather than hate.

I think you're absolutely right. Hate has a lot of passion in it. It's different from love, yes, but not quite the opposite. When you hate someone, you still feel something towards them - even if that feeling is negative. Indifference, on the other hand, is even worse to receive. Knowing that the other person genuinely doesn't care is worse than being hated. You feel small, ignored.

I like the way you used the reoccurring theme of green throughout - the color of her eyes, the color of envy, the color of her death. It was like watching all of Lily's days passing before us in different shades of green, while she shrunk smaller and smaller. To be so close to someone one day and then, like you said, lose it all forever in a moment of humiliation, would cause so much self-loathing in years to come. Your one-shot illustrated all of the beauty of Lily but also the coldness, too. He was fifteen years old when he said that word. He'd made a mistake. For all of their years of friendship, to cut him off after that like a cancer, never looking back, indicates that it wasn't just his fault that the friendship was over. She had been looking for ways to sever ties.

She died much too young, and her death clearly stunted Severus's growth thereafter. It's so sad what happened to both of them, and how her death sort of killed them both.

Beautiful one-shot!
