This is a very short, cute one-shot. Reading from James point of view is wonderful. Usually people always write from Lily's perspective so I like the change. It makes sense how James doesn't believe in war since when it comes down to it he is a pureblood who hasn't felt what it is to be muggle-born. My favorite parts are when he notices Lily and talks about her(which is most of the story,lol). "I don't know if I believe in the war. If I believe in one thing, just one thing, I believe in her." That line has got to be my favorite. And I nearly cried when he said that his reason to fight is her and only her. And James' comment on McGonigall was funny. How Lily didn't get it until later was and then he almost laughs...that was an aww moment. Lovely one-shot and your portrayal of James/Lily was realistic with the right amount of romance.

Author's Response: I did get a lot of comments when I first wrote this that people tend to use Lily's perspective, and I guess that's true. I did think it was cool to explore James because I don't like him much and I wanted to make him more relateable for me. This one-shot was directly inspired by a Doctor Who challenge and part of the quote you identified was the one I received, so that theme of fighting for love was one that really laid the foundation here. I did try to add in some lighter moments, though, like James's comment about McGonagall. I'm glad all of it worked well for you, and thanks for your lovely review :)
