I love how Lily was teasing James. She reminded me of Ginny, how Ginny always loved to have a good laugh and how sometimes she reminded me of an extension of the Weasley twins.

Snape just needs to give it a rest! I can see him continuously trying to bother Lily though, especially after she and James started to date. I'm glad to see that he got what he deserved at that time (detention xD)

I've been reflecting a lot about Lily's character because I just reread OotP. We see how James clearly was a flawed character (though that makes me like him more) and how Harry sort of found solace in how nice her mother was because Lily blowing up at James in Snape's Worst Memory seemed perfectly reasonable. I had read a Tumblr post a few days ago describing Lily and James's relationship so ever since I was reading OotP, I started to think a lot about Lily, and this is my conclusion: I actually think that Lily's wish to see the best in people (had it not been for her good senses) would have been her downfall. Many people said that was Dumbledore's (especially after Snape killed him), but it obviously wasn't because Dumbledore knew who to trust. The difference, I think though, with Dumbledore and Lily is that Lily, at this point and even when she died in my opinion, might have (at times) tried to see the good in people too much. She stuck with Snape for ages after it was obvious what a bad apple he was, and because of her determination to see good in Snape/see Snape become good again, I think it caused her to neglect on the good points that James (and his friends) had for a very long time.

Anyways. That was a bit unrelated, but the last bit with Remus and Sirius saying that to Lily is definitely something that is an important part of Lily's character, but I also think that it's something that, had Lily lived longer, would have been/might have been costly to her if she wasn't careful.

Author's Response: I can definitely see Lily teasing James. I don't think Harry/Ginny is the same as James/Lily but I do think Lily and Ginny had some similarities.

Yeah, Snape needs to get over it and realize it was his fault and not James's or Lily's that Lily doesn't like him any more. Good thing he god what he deserved.

Oooh good point about Lily! I think you're absolutely right. Snape was a friend so she stuck by him thinking he would do the right thing even when it became more clear he wasn't. Snape's Worst Memory shattered that illusion. And it definitely could have blinded her to James's good qualities. Once she was no longer friends with Snape, she'd be able to see the good qualities in the Marauders.

Thanks for the review!
