I knew this moment had to come and I knew how it had to end yet still when I read first words - that it was James - I felt like closing the browser not reading at all.

Of course I did - how could I miss a chapter? And now I feel so horribly indifferent. Or maybe empty.

Your descriptions are brilliant. It's really incredible for me how much you can express in just a few words. Because when James's glasses shatter... It feels like the whole world shatters with them.

I can't even imagine what has to be going on in your head that you start thinking about jokes in the face of death.
Good old James < 3

Author's Response: I feel sort of bad, having not been clear before on just how things with Lily and James were going to end up -- but this was always the planned ending. Their death and Harry's scar are just too HUGE for me to change, you know? They're major catalysts, and I can't even fathom how things would work otherwise. And they're important in deciding the fates of the other Marauders, as well -- even Beth, my own little Marauder -- that it was never an option not to kill them, even though that is now the second time I've written that scene, and this time, after having written two books to develop their relationship, it was infinitely harder.

Thank you for the comment on my descriptions. ♥ I love describing scenes, and I think this chapter turned out so long in part because I wanted to postpone the inevitable. Describing helps that!

Good old James. ♥ I've just realized how much I do miss him indeed -- he was my favorite, of all the four. Brave to the very end, though!

Thank you for reviewing! (I hope you're not tired of hearing it -- I've just got to tell you every time, just in case you think I take reviews for granted. I assure you I never do!)
