It's Katie from the forums, reviewing the challenge entries! :D
Sorry it's so late!

So Les Mis is definitely in my top 3 musicals and i cry every time I watch it, I adore it, and this song in particular, which I think you definitely did justice too!
I LOVED the way that you referred to the lyrics throughout the piece and I thought it was clever that you made the link between this song and Snapes life. You made me think about Snape in a different way and the thoughts that would have been going through his mind at this point which was very clever!

A great read that i thoroughly enjoyed!

Author's Response: Hi Katie

Thanks for your review. Les Mis is one of my favourite musicals as well. I'm happy to hear that you thought I did the song justice. I could see everything in my head, but when it came to actually writing the story, I struggled a little bit. It came out ok in the end, but I still think it sounded better in my head. But that's the way of things I suppose.

I thought for a while about who I was going to write about and what song to use for the challenge, and then I just knew it had to be I dreamed a Dream with Snape. It just seems to fit him perfectly. The dreams of his childhood would be nothing like what his life became. There is just so much going on in the background of this scene that we only found out later. Snape's character is also so complex and driven so much by his love for Lily.

When I write song fics, I like to incorporate the song lyrics into the text as it links it in with the song, but I prefer not to include the lyrics as this to me breaks the flow. The lyrics of this song are just so powerful that I couldn't resist including them and taking the reader of the same journey as the song.

I'm really glad you enjoyed my story and thanks for hosting such a great challenge.
