I'm back! Sorry, I hope I don't bore you with this review!

First of all, I don't know why you are apologising for this chapter. I really liked it - short, sweet and directly to the point :) I think the three little vignettes of Snape and Lily as children are so believable, I could literally see all the events playing out in my head, so kudos to you! I think you've done a brilliant job with the imagery in this chapter (if you haven't guessed already haha)

I love the contrasts you establish between Snape and Lily from such a young age! You've subtly hinted at Snape's Death Eater tendencies with the line: "Don't worry, when we learn how to do some serious magic, we can make her cry". I really enjoyed that, in a completely non-sadistic way of course :P

I also love how you've subtly used the details JKR has given us about Snape and Lily as kids - Snape of course, being the poor, impoverished, unloved child while Lily seemed to radiate happiness wherever she went. I think you've done a really good job at conveying it here :)

There are a few mistakes regarding grammar and tenses, so you might want to look over this chapter again when you re-edit it. Now I'm off to read the next chapter, sorry for boring you with this stupendously long review!

Author's Response: You never quite bore me with the reviews. I feel a little elated when I see that you've reviewed one of my stories, actually :)

Phew. I'm glad you think it's believable. It was my main worry. What you've said, is a HUGE compliment. Thank you :) And I'm glad you appreciated the imagery!

And yes! I always believed that there had to be tendencies from the start. I don't think he'd have just hopped out of bed one day, and decided that he would like to follow Voldemort. Also, Lily and Snape seem like opposing ends of the pole. Yet, there is something sweet about the admiration that Snape holds for Lily. I would never see her with anyone but James, I guess. But my heart does go out to Snape sometimes.

And yess! I love JKR, and everything she's written. She's dropped off so many little tidbits that we can use for our stories, actually. And canon-y details all the way! 'Tis JKR's word. I wouldn't go against it!

Don't worry about boring me. You don't :P
Again, I loved your review.
Thanks a bunch! You've made me a happy girl! :D
