Hello!

This was such a moving piece, I have tears rolling down my cheeks right now so, not cool Dan, not cool!

I really like the idea of this story, it's always nice to imagine that there is something after death, a moment where you can make piece with whatever just happenend to you and the ones you left behind.

I quite liked James fragility in this. He isn't coping well with his death and leaving his son and friend behind and I think that is very in-character for him. He always was one that wore his heart on his sleeve and would give everything to ensure his friends and family were happy so to imagine him leaving them behind and in such a mess would be very unsettling for him.

I like how Lily was the pragmatic one, calming him and bringing him to reason in this. There relationship was vibrant and very well presented.

I loved the pranks that James and Sirius did to each other, it's so fitting to imagine that they messed with each other for fun as well as pranking the rest of the world.

Just a great, great piece that got me emotional but I enjoyed immensely,

Author's Response: Hi, Akussa!

You know I hate to make anyone cry, but I'm always glad to know that a story had an emotional impact.

I wrote this after reading a few different afterlife stories that involved other characters, and it seemed to me like James and Lily left this plane of existence with a lot of unanswered questions and unfinished business. I was strongly considering making this longer, having Sirius and Remus both arrive in the waiting room and then taking them up to the moment where Harry summons them with the Resurrection Stone. But somehow it just felt better to end it here.

I'm pretty sure that opening up and showing his vulnerability was a necessary step for James to finally win Lily's heart. More than just wearing his heart on his sleeve, he had to really take down his walls of bravado and let her know what he was really feeling. By the time Voldemort killed them, he had probably gotten pretty good at it.

I've always thought of Lily as being the pragmatic voice in their relationship. It just seems like the way she would be.

The pranks were a trip to write. Most fun part of this not very fun story, hands down.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed it and sorry for any tears I inflicted upon you. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
