Review #26, by CloakAuror9 Sweet Dreams

22nd August 2012:
So there I was, awake at 6am, scrolling through the James/Lily pairing tag and then I see this! I instantly read it and this is just so cute! I didn't even realise you were the author until I re-read it this night. :| *bad Izzy*

I wouldn't call this pointless at all. I think it's a wonderful one-shot that didn't really glorify parenting. There's just so many one-shots out there that's about James and Lily thinking about how wonderful Harry was and all, and yes that is true, but what about the dark stuff? The things you never really realise until you're a parent a baby crying endlessly. :P

I don't know why, but my favourite part would probably be the couch sacrificial bit. It's a really good insight on what they probably did during those times in order to be able to be awake and be there for Harry the moment he cries. It's just so sad that they never got to see him grow. :(

I really love this one-shot and it's going to my favourites because I love it. It's very simple and unique. I...I just love it, I can't even explain it.

Totally looking forward to more awesome one-shots,
Izzy xx

Author's Response: Izzy!! I was so surprised to see your wonderful review ♥

I am so happy that you picked up on it not glorifying parenting, because really, no one can know what to do with this new tiny bundle of baby!

Lily always has the right answer, but in this situation there really is no right answer, and that will definitely come as a shock to her in Before They Fall. But I couldn't wait that long to write just a tiny bit of baby world, so this slipped in ;).

They deserved to watch him go from a colicky baby to a fun child... ;(.

Thanks again so much for your wonderful review, darling! I have a new one shot in the queue right now, but it's a dark one. Not a happy loving Lily James one.

Hey Jami! Here from review tag! ♥

This was adorable. I loved the comical twist you put on Lily's ever-changing mood; I can imagine a young mother's emotions swinging wildly from one to the next as she tries to decipher the meaning of her child's cries. I love James, too, trying and failing to get Lily to calm down. The ending to this was totally priceless and felt very realistic.

Nice job! :)


Author's Response: Hi Amanda! I am so happy you liked this, and that you found some humor in the situation, because I was seriously giggling the entire time imagining these brand new parents, barely out of school, with an infant.

I think Lily would have had a hard time realizing that when it comes to being a mother, no one can be perfect. She always has the answer, so when she can't figure out what to do with her own child, it would just really shock her.

Thanks so much for this sweet review ♥

Very, very cute! I love James/Lily, and I'm afraid you're to blame darling(;

This is just as great as your other stories, not that I expected anything less than perfect.

I really do have to say, you had just the right amount of imagery there(;

I love how you made Lily slightly cunning, with the watch thing(; I also adored how you incorportated Sirius and Alice.

I can perfectly imagine the look on Lily's face when Sirius offered to watch Harry! I love your stories, darling! Especially this one because it birhgtened my mood!

Excellent job, 10/10



Author's Response: Ever you are so sweet ♥ Hahaha okay, so when my fiance and I got our puppy, he was a rescue from a puppy mill. He's a min pin, and he was five weeks old - so we have on our hands this tiny, can fit in the palm of our hand, week little guy and we were too scared to sleep in case something happened. We took turns, and I really wanted to set his alarm cock on his phone to go off sooner so it could be my turn to sleep.. which is where Lily's pocket watch trickery came from, haha!

Anyway, the fact that you love Lily and James makes me so much happier than I could ever tell you! Thank you for your awesome review, darling! And I'm happy it could brighten you mood ♥

Calling for a wonderful rview swap :)

Everything was so real it seemed like it could really happen. Harry wailing, Lily being exasperated and James adding sarcastic and witty comments. You characterized everyone perfectly and I loved all of their characters so much. I couldn't possible pick a favorite and best characterized one. You did a really good job with this one-shot and I loved every second of it.

There were no massive mistakes or even any little ones as far as I can pick out. I am not going to complaine about anything about this one-shot because I thought it was perfect in every single way possible. Please write more like this.

Definatly going to favorite this

Author's Response: I am so happy you liked this! I really couldn't decide if it was anything worth posting just because nothing actually happens, but your review really made happy that I did ♥

Thanks again for such a perfect review swap!!

Lily hadn’t realized she’d been starting at him

I think you meant staring. :) Anyway, this was so lovely! You showed the reality and the darker side of parenthood and in a wonderful way. And at the same time, the story was so nice and calming. Your descriptions were wonderful. I could imagine almost all the things you talked about. And what I loved most were the little details that made me feel that James and Lily really do have this gorgeous love between them. Also, it was so unique to have Lily play the piano for Harry. I think I 'aww'ed audibly right there.

This story was simply wonderful and it made me smile and grin and feel warm at heart. I don't think one-shots like this are pointless, I really like reading about the little, random moments in the life of James and Lily. Thank you for writing it. :)


Author's Response: Oops thank you, my fingers always seem to do that ;).

I am so happy you liked this one shot, it was really fun to kind of give these two more of a human side. They were amazing people, but they were still people.

I have so much fun with details but I always wonder if they're too much, so hearing you liked them put the biggest smile on my face! Thanks for the awesome review!!!
