im not really a big fan of one offs but this is amazing i especially liked how you ended it very powerful.
brilliant work and i would love to see more from you in the future. ( hint ) :)Author's Response: Thanks! I do have two other things here... one shot and a long one. Going to add more stuff when I'm done with it too:-)
Good that you liked it! I needed the end to be like that, hehe. Did you see the connection between the start and the end? His thought feelings, and his words to her? Report Review
Sad how a friendship ends, and how his love for her would shape the future so much when they never were a couple. I think of what their future held; she was dead at 21 and he died before 40 after living as a spy for half his life without ever having any real happiness.
I think I am being maudlin but this piece made me feel really sad.
You have written this really well. Keep writing.Author's Response: Thank you, that means a lot:-)
Yes, it is sad. But we all know how it was - he loved her, but she didn't love him back, she loved James. Do we know if she knew his feelings for her? I can't remember, but you know how I did that in this shot:-)
Do you see how this all fits with why he was a spy for DD, though? We know it was because he loved Lily, and therefor he wanted to protect her baby. So I used that - in this story, the way he treated her is another reason why he agreed to be a spy. He feels so bad for the way he treated her by the lake.
And a lot of other connections throughout the story, hehe:-) Report Review
