Hi there! I'm back to read more of this awesome short story collection! :)

This one was so sad! And I don't even like Snape. But I couldn't help feeling badly for him! I thought you tied the beginning quote in really well with this one, how Snape faced his fear of seeing Lily dead, just so that he'll know for sure. I can't imagine how hard that would be - he wants to know if she's alive or dead, but only seeing her dead will make him give up hope of one day being with her.

You handled Snape's complicated emotions and obsessiveness very well, too. He is a really difficult character to get into the mind of, but you did. The way he thought that James and Harry's deaths would be inconsequential and Lily would eventually be with him... it's very much like Snape to think that, to not be able to see anything past his own selfish love and how that would be the worst thing possible for Lily if she survived.

This was a great chapter! You should be so proud that you're able to write difficult characters like Snape and Voldemort so well. Gold star for you! :D

Author's Response: Hi!!

I'm so glad you came back!

It's kind of awesome that I got you to feel sad for Snape given that you don't like him. His was a very sad fear to write about. You describe it quite brilliantly.

Snape was quite interesting to write about. Many of his thoughts were quite disconnected to my own feelings and desire for how to react. It was really twisted to have him so excited at the possibility to move on Lily after her family's death even though, like you said, it would have been devistating.

Thank you very much for an awesome review and such kind words! I shall covet the gold star for all time. :D
