Heya! Perelandra here from the forums! :D

Holy cow! What did I just read?!

I really, really enjoyed this fic. It certainly is different. I'm not very fond of death, in fact, it quite freaks me out, that's why I like ghosts because it gives me this idea that there's something else beyond death. I mean, we never really know until that time but still. This fic is certainly haunting. It got creepy towards the end as well, I mean, I had no idea where this was going. Part of me thought that they were there to just warn him of a future danger but no! They were there to take him away.

But now I want to know why! Why would James, Lily and Snape do that? Did they want a piece of Harry? Were they saving him from a fate that was much worse than the Elixir?

This made me sad, not only for Albus but also for Harry and Ginny and the rest of his family.

The description and imagery was fantastic. I could see everything in my head. The ghosts, Lily's haunting look, their marks. *shudders* What I liked the most about Lily was that you kept her last facial expression. Grief, surprise. Fright. I just wanted to know why they were there just so they could leave. I too would be terrified if I found a ghost just staring at me. Constantly. And things got worse for Albus when it was the three of them just staring at him. Waiting.

Really great story! Depressing and dark but still overall great read! So thank you for letting me read this.

Author's Response: You have just read one of my attempts at getting into the insane mind... which happens more often than is perhaps socially acceptable. ;) I'm so happy you enjoyed it, though! I don't know why it's become the norm for me to write mental illness, but there you have it. Death absolutely freaks me out, and so writing someone who accepts it, in the end, was sort of cathartic.

I think James and Lily and Snape -- since Snape is all about protecting the Potters -- were there to sort of ease Albus into his death, to provide familiar faces until he crossed and to get him accustomed to the idea. I don't know if he was always fated to die, or if he was just crazy and made that choice himself. That's really up for the reader to decide. :) I like to think, though, that they were sort of like his guardian angels.

Thank you for the comment about the imagery, too! ♥ I would be so terrified if I was Albus, but then, I'm not a Gryffindor or a Potter. So there's that.

Your offer to review one-shots for people -- that's amazing, you know? I really do admire you for it. :) And thanks for being willing to read one of mine again!
