Review:Courtney Dark says:

I knew it was coming, I knew it was most probably going to be this chapter but as soon as I started reading, found out that it was from James' point of view my lower lip actually started shaking, I got that hot/cold/I'm very sad feeling and I just about started bawling.

And then everything happened. Lily told James that she was pregnant and then James told Harry that he was going to have a younger brother or sister AND HE NEVER EVEN KNEW and then James took off his glasses and was making colourful bubbles for Harry...

And then the ending:( Even writing this is just making me want to cry. The ending was...poetic, somehow, in a horrible sinister way. I literally had shivers all over my body. The way it switched out of James' point of view...

URGH! What is everybody going to do when they find out what happens?

Courtney:( (Yep, that's right, a frowny face - not that I didn't love this chapter because I did, but I really hated it at the same time) IT'S A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP!

Author's Response: It was, in retrospect, very mean of me to put such a horrid chapter after a series of really happy ones -- but that's life, you know? I knew it was coming from the moment I started the trilogy, and it was still hard for me to write James and Lily's deaths. I'm pleased to have caused such a reaction in you... but I'm sorry it was such a sad one. ♥

ALL THE BARBS IN THIS CHAPTER. All the happiness right before the world shattered (as it were) -- and I just feel really bad for everyone here. This is the catalyst for everything that comes after it. Everything. And Harry, still just a baby. Writing this chapter made me recognize the weight on his shoulders in canon more than almost anything before.

I'm flattered that you thought the ending was poetic, though. :) If I could pick any adjective to describe my hopes for it, it would be that one. Thank you for such a lovely review, even if the chapter was painful!
