Confession time *glances around worriedly* I'm a closet fan of this pairing. Like...a big fan. Shhh okay? I kinda squealed a bit seeing that you had one. :P Now to go read it. Lol.
OMG doesn't even begin to describe how good this was! I seriously read this with my mouth hanging open it was so amazing. Each sentence seemed so needed and weighted. It was beautiful and dark and so entrancing. Your portrayal of Regulus was brilliant. And I love that you didn't make her some innocent goody-goody. You gave her character and depth and flaws and it was so well done.
Your writing in general is wonderful. Grammar and spelling were great and your desriptions were gorgeous. I think I'm going to use every synonym for "great" I can possibly think of. I don't like copy/pasting lines into reviews, so I'll just say: when you were writing out the garden part, the shriveling flowers and smoke, GAH it was amazing.
*heaps on more praise until you fall over* I know it's old, but I'm faving this story! ♥ --Jenna Report Review
So I just read your story mania and I decided to check out your other story and this story lured me in also because of the pairing but also because of the fantastic summary. Well it seems you are not only a great writer for shorter pieces but also for pieces of this length and like in your other piece you have a distincted writing style. Itís the way you describe things, the words you use. I canít explain it but itís def you. I have to say this one was one of my favourite sentences: She was a blossom, a beautiful and fragile flower, a lily; she belonged in the sun and he had brought her into the darkness to watch her wither and fade. It says so much in such little words about this story and also about their twisted relationship. I have to say the Regulus in your story is so hot, like a darker and twisted version of his brother. Your title is very fitting for this story, simple but fitting, because they are really possesed with each other. I actually donít like Lily that much but you made me like her she seemed so human while most people describe her flawless like she canít do anything wrong like sheís a kind of godess. Report Review
hello there! Lee from TGS here tagging you! And I have to say, this one-shot left me speechless, and me being speechless does not happen very often. Unique paring and a very unique and well written story. Just.wow.Author's Response: Yay! Thank you! I am so glad you liked it. It's just a little plot bunny that came to be when I decided I wanted to write Regulus fic. Originally it was going to be Bella/Rodolphus, actually, but that ended up as another story :P
Thank you! Report Review
wow i actually rather loved this...i don't really read stuff with Lily and other people but i really enjoyed this one. You're very talented with the way you use your words in the story, the only thing i didn't like was the shortness of it :)
[=Miss Ginny Potter=]Author's Response: Well honestly I don't really write stuff with Lily anyone, so I guess we're in the same boat :] But, as we know how this ends, it's not really an antiship, more like a brief departure. Thank you so much! I really appreciate that :] Report Review
This is absolutely fabulous! For some reason I have a feeling that the other man is Regulus.
'His dark hair, so like his brothers, lay upon his forehead in sweat-slicked lines.'
I love it :)Author's Response: You're quite right. I didn't really mention his name clearly because the focus is not so much on who it is, more of what Lily is doing and how she feels, but yes, it is Regulus.
Thank you!!! Report Review
It's acrules from the forums, although you've probably guessed that.
I really like it! I really like your writing style, you seem to have perfect control over all of it, and there are no awkward bits where I have to go back and read over it. And all the relationships are just perfect. I was really in the mood for reading sometihng about Lily/James which wasn't all perfect and happy-ending ish, as much I love their paring - so I'm really glad you've written it!
And I've favorited it...
Nice job :DAuthor's Response: Yay! Hello!
When I first read your challenge, I was having trouble thinking of a pairing. But the idea of Bad Romance sort of made me want to do a Lily or James/Other. It seemed like the very essence of bad romance to take what is generally considered to be PERFECT romance and turn it on its head. Plus the fact that, though the end of this story is open, we all know what happens... it is definitely not a happy ending.
Thank you so much for a great challenge and for liking! :] Report Review
Oh no! Oh nononononono.
Aww, Lily :'( Poor James.
This story is beautifully written. You characterized it and plotted it so well that at first I thought I didn't like the story--and then I realized that it was Lily and her choices that I didn't like. And I LOVE the story.
It's so original too--I've never seen anything like this. I think I'm gonna go check out your author's page now... :)
10/10Author's Response: I think that is such an important distinction because Lily herself, in the story, doesn't like her choices. That's what I really wanted to tell the story of, why the theme of possession came to mind- she is watching herself do these things and hating it, but she can't stop.
Wow, I am so glad you liked it! It was a departure for me to write Lily, so I had to choose something a little different for her. Thank you so much!!! Report Review
