Review #1, by MajiKat and I loved him

6th September 2011:
Hey darling, here with your review!

Firstly, I love this! it is tender and thought-provoking and beautiful. Lily's voice is lovely - i really got the sense of a woman looking back, someone older thinking back to when they were young. there is a real nostalgic quality to this and i really like that.

you wanted to know if the flow and structure worked. they did, very much so. it flows seamlessly from one event to the next and i think the absence of dialogue helps that. direct speech would have broken this i think. the structure is also lovely - it follows a linear chronology of events in canon and you interspace these with your own musings - your own lovely characterisation of lily and james.

i think this line is one of my favs: So we took our side and joined a war because we were young and passionate and thought we were invincible.

beautiful writing darling. i really enjoyed this.

Author's Response: Thanks Kate! I really appreciate the feedback :)
It's my first ever L/J so I'm unsure of how it read, and it's good to know your opinion. Especially since it's favourable.

Review #2, by SnitchSnatcher and I loved him

2nd September 2011:
Shiloh, this is absolutely beautiful.

I love the way you wrote this. I'm not usually a fan of this particular style, but you made it work and quite beautifully, I might add. It's just...ugh, it's flawless.

I had to laugh at your dedication. You might be onto something there. I really do think we love them more than they loved each other - except not because that's impossible.

ANYWAY, you did a wonderful job, lovely!

Author's Response: You are too kind :)

Thank you for such a lovely review dear! I appreciate your reading this. I'm glad you liked it! Although I'll never write L/J like you do.

Ahahaha, it had to be dedicated to you two!

Review #3, by DarkLadyofSlytherin and I loved him

29th August 2011:

This is amazing. I don't normally read fluffy things like this, but I love it. It's sweet and yet sad at the same time. Sad, because we know what happens to Lily and James. I want to tell them to never trust Peter, to let them have a chance at raising Harry more than they get.

All the same, it was beautifully written and absolutely stunning. I love it. And that's rather hard for me to say when I don't really like anything with fluff in it.

Thanks for sharing this story with us all, it is perfect!

Author's Response: Thank you Len! What a sweet review. I love opening up my page and seeing things like this. You're a dear.
I had never before written Lily/James as a main pairing but I'm rather pleased with this piece. I'm glad you like it!

Review #4, by Zaphira and I loved him

8th March 2011:
So often I find it difficult to read fics that are written paragraph by paragraph with no dialogue, but this kept my interest and attention the whole way through. You have a very captivating, expressive way of writing - I'm very impressed!

Author's Response: Thank you :) What a lovely review.

Review #6, by Allison and I loved him

6th February 2011:
Very nicely done! This was an adorable and touching little story to read. My favorite was line was, "...revel in the life that grew even as death was our constant companion." I think that's a very apt way to look at Lily and James's experience of expecting a baby in a war torn world. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you liked it, and thanks for the review. :)
