Ral...you left me truly without words. I never expected something like this and I loved every single word of the story. I can't thank you enough for everything you've done, not only this story but for always being there when I needed to vent off, to share painful moments, crazy fan reactions or just a chat. This has topped what anyone has ever done for my birthday. No one ever dedicated anything to me, even when it wasn't my birthday. So you can imagine my emotion when you gave me the link to a story written in my name...and a Snily nonetheless!! I know how hard it must have been for you since Snily is not exactly your own preferred pairing, and Snape not one of your favourite characters. It makes me treasure this even more.

I don't even know how to start this. Your afterlife is how I dream the real afterlife is. And I really, deeply wish it to be like that. Where there is no negative feeling, no despair or sadness, hate or dissatisfaction, where only happiness and peace rules. And where you can meet all of your loved ones and spend time with them. An eternity with your family and friends is...is just...I don't know the right word that could express how much that'd mean to me.

I'm so glad you decided to give Snape a happy after life. I really feel like he deserved it. He has made many mistakes, there's no arguing that, but we can't judge him by his mistakes. Not more than we could judge other characters by their mistakes. He was a tormented soul while he lived, so I will die thinking that he did deserve to be happy after his death. At least then.

I was positively crying by the moment Severus made up with James. You cant imagine HOW much I waited for a moment in the books, a word from Severus of forgiveness or respect or something that would show us that he put his Potter grudge behind him, not so much for James or even Harry, but for himself because that grudge was poisoning him, was slowly killing him inside. And that's not a healthy way to live your life :(

I am left speechless at the perfection of Lily's meeting with Severus. It was heart-warming to see them reunited once more, in the place where everything started. I LOVED, LOVED your idea that when you die you go to the place where everything started. It's an amazing conception and now I wish for it to be like that haha I wonder what my starting moment would be. Do you know yours?

Thank you, thank you once again for doing this. It's the most amazing gift I've ever received in my life and I will treasure it forever!

Author's Response: That moment when your reaction is better than anything I expected it to be! I'm so happy you liked this! I really wanted this to be special since I know how much you love Snape, even though he isn't my first choice of character.

And the idea of how the afterlife is... I pay attention to our conversations you know :P

As for the starting point, I did think about mine when writing this. When I was 5 years old my late grandfather, who as you know has been the biggest inspiration in my life, had a case at the Palace of Justice in Bucharest. I was too young to go inside but I remember sitting by the door and peering inside as he was speaking, in his robe and the whole room was drinking in his every word. That's when I knew I wanted to practice law and the place where it all started is the Palace of Justice. With my grandfather.

Again, I am so happy you enjoyed it! *hugs*
