Hello, Siriusy89 here with your criminally late review, for which I am so sorry!
Anyway, Iím here, and ready to review!
Oh! This is from Lilyís point of view! I like I, I like it very much. The subtle beginning, just her talking about her summer flowed nicely into her talking about her relationship with Severus, something I really like!
She sort of seeís Severus as the innocent person in all this, in the sense that she seems to think that Severus didnít know what the others were capable of, and then again maybe he didnít, but I just think its Lilyís way of justifying her staying friends with Severus despite it all.
The memories were such a nice touch. I loved the one about James and the grapes! Or then Severus protecting Lily from Petunia (because lets face it, Petunia was a nasty piece of work!) Then, when the cracks begin to show in the relationship, and you can see them both floundering to try and salvage it, when really thereís nothing they can do.
Sorry, I just have to mention it, the memory of James and Lily in the library, priceless!
Severus probing around in Lilyís mind was beyond creepy. If it had been me, I wouldíve run a mile, but I suppose she was his best friend and all that jazz . . . still. . .
Urgh, Petunia. She just needs to get over herself! But hey, at least Lilyís meeting up with Alice, so that might take her mind off of Severus and what a rubbish friend he is!
And weíre back to Jamesí point of view! I love Tibbs, and him/her giving poor old Sirius a mini heart attack. The banter between Sirius and James is something I always enjoy, but especially in this story, as you seem to have gotten their relationship balance just right! Gah!
Oh? James is a right brainiac isnít he? I like that he didnít just get ĎOut standingísí in everything, and I felt as if you really had taught out everything! I love well-planned things! Yay!
And I will bet you anything theyíre going to run into Lily in Diagon Alley!
And back to Lilyís point of view! I like Alice, she seems like a very level-headed individual, and she didnít sympathise with Lily, telling her that her actions towards James were right considering how upset she was, she told it like it was, and I greatly respect her for that!
I canít wait to see what she says to James!
Another great chapter, feel free to re-request!
