Review #1, by HPPC Staff Forever

14th November 2012:
Hey there! Iím here to leave you one of the reviews you won for placing in the HPPC writing challenge.

Now I donít normally read songfics because most of the time Iíve never even heard of the song. But I love Rascal Flatts and actually have this song on my ipod. I listened along to the song while reading, and I have to say that this is one of the best songfics that Iíve found.

This story was cleverly interwoven with the song. The words that you wrote almost melded in with the song and I like how you incorporated the lyrics in with the narrative so that it read through. The tone of the story actually matched up to the song without being too overbearing.

When I first started reading the story I thought it was from Jamesís perspective (I donít know why XD) but it made much more sense once I realized that it was Snape. It also made it that much more heartbreaking. We rarely get to see inside the mind of Snape and only have The Princeís Tale to go on in the book and I really like your portrayal of his heartbreak here. It seems totally in canon while still showing us that Snape actually had a heart. Well done on that.

Awesome story overall

Author's Response: I am so glad that you believed that it was one of the best song fics you have read!
It is a very good song, I agree.

I am glad you liked how I used the lyrics with the story, I am always afraid on how I write my songfics. I am also glad you didn't think it was overbearing.

Mhm, I guess that makes sense that it could have been in Jame's perspective, but it does make more sense in Snapes :P
I am glad (this sounds bad) that it was heartbreaking, because that was what I was going for!
I am glad you also found it cannon- I try my hardest to keep it cannon.
I am glad you liked it! Thanks for the nice review(:

Agh, this was so sad! Deep down, a teeny part of me has always shipped Snily, and it's just sad it never worked out. But I guess Snape wouldn't be the way he is now without all that happening to him.

I like how honest this feels. I think it's got the right amount of raw emotion tucked in. I do think that it might be helped along with a little more elaboration or context.

Whatever the case, good work! :)

Author's Response: Aww, thank you sooo much for reviewing!!!
And me too... Snily is something I will always love(:
And I agree, Lily made him the person he is!
Thank you so much, and I couldnt agree with you more, this is a pretty old piese, not my best ;P
Thank you so much for the review(:

This is sooo sad! I think you've written this beautifully. I realise that it can be difficult writing pieces like this, so my respect goes out to you. I liked how you used the lyrics in this, I thought they matched and reflected the piece brilliantly.
I would love to read more of your work, so I shall review again soon. =]

Author's Response: I'm glad that you found my emotion realistic, and the sadness went right.
Thank you that you thought it was written beautifully, that really means a lot.
It was very difficult, yes.

Thank you so much for this(:
