Review #1, by UnluckyStar57 All I Wanted

4th January 2014:
Hi! I'm here from the Ninth Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing. We had to review stories that have been turned into podcasts.

Oh, wow. I listened to the podcast of this story as I read along, and it. Is. AMAZING. I enjoyed your explanation of how you wrote this story--Snily is sad stuff, indeed! I wrote a Snily once, but this one that you've written really captures Snape's thoughts and feelings in vivid color.

Hearing your voice as you read this added a lot to the story. It was as if you were Snape, writing a love letter in his head to Lily. You were sad in all of the right moments, and slightly less sad in the appropriate moments. It was perfect.

This was absolutely wonderful to read!

Review #2, by BookDinosaur All I Wanted

Hello! I'm here for the Ninth of the Twelve Days of Reviewing Challenge. :)

Ah, I really enjoyed reading this! Normally I really stay away from Snape/Lily stuff, but this story made me feel for Severus (although I think it's just because this love was unrequited - if this story was AU and Snape and Lily had ended up together I think my reaction would be quite different from what it is now, haha).

The emotions in this story were just overwheling, you did such a fantastic job with the emotive language. I could really feel for Snape here, how remorseful he was and how sorry he was that he ever had that fight with Lily or called her that name of made her upset. I really enjoyed those emotions that were so rampant in this piece, I think you did a great job of connecting the reader to Snape.

The whole theme about loss of innocence and childhood nostalgia was really well done and I think the analogy about the swing set was really accurate and just a perfect example. I could really understand how Snape would want to go back to where he met Lily before he went off to fight and I think that whole theme was just fantastic.

Ah, and I just realised that you never told us the name of the narrator, but it was so clear to me that it was Snape, so well done to you there.

All in all this was a really good story, you did a really good job with Snape's emotions here. great job! :D

Hello! :)

I read this after listening to your podcast (which was great by the way!) This story is so emotional, so amazing, honestly! It's a very moving Snape/Lily story. The way you wrote it was really, just wow.

Just the way you used to describe Snape's pain and his sadness - the words and sentences you chose were very strong - each sentence actually contributed to the story. I enjoyed this. Great writing, and I loved the emotions of this Snape/Lily fic :)

Author's Response: I'm so sorry for the delayed response but I've been on hiatus!

Thank you so much for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed it enough to go and listen to the podcast :)

Lily/Severus is one of my favourite ships and it was just one of those cases where the idea came and bugged me and wouldn't leave until I got it all down. Thank you so much for your glowing praise :)

Review #4, by American Ginny All I Wanted

23rd December 2010:
This was just absolutely brilliant! it really makes you feel sorry for Snape, and it made me just want to give him a big ole hug! I loved how you connected it to Deathly Hallows. What a wonderful story! 10/10

Author's Response: I know, right? He is one of my favourite characters and yet so misunderstood really. It was sort of my pre-epilogue epilogue to Snape's life and him sort of looking back on his time with Lily. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review :)

Told you I'd review ;)

Well firstly, LOVE! This is so good Kero! I loved the way the sentences flowed. A lot of them made me think back onto things we know about the marauders era and such like when Snape called her Mudblood and the sorting...it was deep! Besides triggering that stuff it really got me thinking; what would have happened if Snape was in Ravenclaw or Gryffindor? I've never wondered that before, it was a really good thing to add, I liked it!

The swing sets also made me really sad, the childhood loss of innocence reminder thing, you captured it really well. On top of that I like how you never said (besides in the A/N) who was narrating but everyone who reads this will still know. That really shows some skill girl. (:

All in all I loved it. Don't ask me to review more often kay?

10/10 ~spangles :D

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review spangles! I'm not going to lie I was bawling as I wrote this because I had a connection with Snape. I so wish he had been sorted in to Ravenclaw. Maybe then Harry wouldn't be Potter *sigh*.

I have to say that my newest little craze is not using peoples' names. I did the same with Peter in Order of Merlin until the last sentence. Glad you picked up on it ;)

Thanks so much again ~ Kero

Review #7, by Marzipan All I Wanted

Ah!! KERO - this. is. love.

This is sooo beautiful and sooo sad. Now I understand why you were crying when you wrote it! Holy cow, girl! Snape is so freaking amazing in this; I love how you've gotten inside his mind to show his pain and love. I can totally see Snape reacting exactly this way after learning of Lily's death.

Love you; love this!

Author's Response: MARZ! Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm so glad you liked it because it makes all those tears totally worthwhile :)

Love you too hun!
