Hey there! Ok, so this was a haunting story, at least for me. Knowing that you life can be resumed to one word, a word that can define what you are, what you've been doing with the time you had to spend on this earth is scary. It's a frightening perspective because we are more than just one word. Human life is much, much more than that.

I think you've captured Lily's essence very well in this small one shot. Her turmoil at having to break bonds with Severus was palpable in her desperate repeating of 'him'. She knew she could no longer continue with him as if nothing ever happened, not when he hurt her so deeply. He who has always been by her side, protecting and defending her against the world because he too was an outcast. This moment breaks my heart because I LOVE Snily in any shape and form (romantic or just as friends) and I can;t standing knowing that this was the beginning of their fall. A truly poignant story. Well done!

Author's Response: Hey Debra! Thanks for stopping by. It is a little terrifying because we're told how beautiful life is and that humans are such a crowning glory of some sort. When all that is stripped away and it's summed up by something so small as one word you start to ask what does it all mean? Which is where this story comes in. Writing Lily has never been easy for me. She's such an elusive character sometimes because there is so many unknowns in her life but this moment has always intrigued me. How a friendship like theirs (or more, whatever it was) could fall over something like that? Was it gradual? Was this the icing on the cake of a really long year or did this start their fall and through sixth year they destroyed. Whatever the case, it's hard to think that a friendship that has gone on as long could be torn apart and it drew me to try and write this moment which marks the change in who they were.

Thank you so much for your kind words!
