Hey!

So this moment is really quite popular to be written about, but I really liked your interpretation of it here. I really loved how you conveyed Lily's emotions, and her thoughts felt very realistic and were believable. I think you definitely succeeded in conveying Lily's love, for James and for Harry, and you were able to make me feel quite sad at this tragic event. Also, I think you did manage to convey the horrors of the First War quite effectively, even with just 500 words.

I also liked that you tried to explain why Lily didn't apparate away - something I've never thought about before - and whilst I'm not completely sold on the anti-apparition spell, you're right that it seems even more unlikely that she couldn't apparate in the first place. Perhaps she just didn't want to leave James behind? All in all, I thought this was just quite a powerful fic that was also wonderfully written.

Author's Response: This is definitely very popular, which is why I also wanted my own take on it. I'm glad that I succeeded in getting the emotions out because that is one of the things that I'm trying to work on as a writer! Lily not Apparating away is always a question (among many) that I'd like to ask JKR; it had never made sense to me why she couldn't, unless Lily just never learned so the anti-apparition was my take on why Lily couldn't Apparate away. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!(:
