I think you hit me straight in all my Severus/Lily feels. Wow. That was just a beautiful story. And this is one of the few stories that seems to actually be made better by it's brief length. You really did make every word count.

I loved the line about Severus calling Harry "his" son instead of their son. That was perfect in context, exactly like canon Severus would. In fact that whole paragraph surrounding that phrase was my favorite, everything about Lily being branded and Severus's darkest days. It was truly beautiful prose.

I don't know if this was intentional (I'm pretty sure it was because it was brilliant) but the challenge you wrote it for and the fact that you specifically kept it at 500 words worked so amazingly with the last line, about all the words in their infinite combinations not being enough. (Another beautiful line of prose, but I'm just gushing.)

Honestly I could gush over every word in every paragraph because they all seemed painstakingly chosen, but I won't. A lovely one-shot, I enjoyed every second I spent reading it! It was so beautifully wrought with sadness, just perfection.

Author's Response: Awww, I'm sorry that I hurt your feels! (Even though you left this review ages ago and I'm only just now responding to it--I'm a bad person...)

Yes, I figured that Snape saw Harry as James' fault more than Lily's, simply because of his dislike of Harry from the books. Thank you so much for thinking that my writing was beautiful! I really try to make it so. :)

No... I actually didn't mean to be so symbolic with this story--the last line was actually the first one that I thought of for the story, and it all came from there. It is a little ironic that the story's length sort of complements that line.

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for reviewing all those months ago. I really appreciate your kind words and thoughts, even though it took me four months to respond. *sheepish grin*
