3rd October 2007:
I applaud you for getting these characters right. Also, songfics are hard! Really nice job.

Author's Response: Aw, thanks so much Bella_Portia! I had to make sure that I got the characters right through the song, I didn't just want to sit there and have it characterized just based on the song alone. I appreciate your review to the fullest, thanks!

Review #3, by Jessi_Rose Not Ready. . .To Make Nice

29th August 2007:
Oh wow, Ginni! you've done SO well portraying Sev and Lily! It's an amazing one shot you've woven here. And very, absolutely plausible! I love how you look at situations outside the box - as people are writing the Severus/Lily romance, you've written something more powerful - the loss of a friendship. I adore this piece! 10/10!

Author's Response: Jessi! Oh, thanks so much! I hope I portrayed them well enough. I didn't want to dive into a romance, it just didn't happen between them, the way I see it, because of Severus and his nosing in Dark Arts. Besides, the loss of friendship is more powerful, like you said! Thanks so much Jessi! Your reviews always make me smile.

Review #4, by Andromedatonks Not Ready. . .To Make Nice

28th August 2007:
Oh, I loved this! A great interpretation of their story, and very well-written at that! I love how you explored Lily's feelings at the moment, and the meaning of the decision she had to make - for me this is such a familiar situation, breaking with the past and everything, and I think you did a great job picturing it.

You asked for CC, so here it it. Your style is extremely descriptive, and while it is, of course, a very good thing, at times it just makes your language seem a bit overdone and unnatural. As a reader, I sometimes found myself distracted from the plot because of that, like in this sentence:

Her concern flashed briefly in her eyes as she tugged her magnetic cling against Severus' shoulder away, and looked up at his sunken in, pale cheeks, that had been withdrawn into his slender face because of lack of the beautiful sunlight.

That said, I still really enjoyed reading your story, everyone was in character, and I love how you included JKR's bits - they fitted in perfectly :)

Author's Response: Yay!

Your review made me smile, so much. I'm glad I got the picturing and things on the dot - and that it was able to connect with you (and possibly other readers) on a personal level.

As for the CC - I thank you very very much. I do tend to be a bit wordy - I'll work on that! Thanks so so much! -scribbles out a bunch of unnecessary words in her other fic- It'll really help me remain descriptive, but simple.

Thanks so much Andromedatonks! It makes me feel so much better!

.amazing. Really. It sounded so much like the chapter of Deathly Hallows where similar things are described. It really sounds like J.K. Rolwing wrote it. Wow. It's so descriptive and.well-written. ^_^ 10/10 in my opinion.

Author's Response: That is. . . a brilliant compliment you just gave me right there. And I appreciate it so much. Thanks! I dunno really what else to say other than thank you!
