Review #1, by luvinpadfoot Open Your Eyes

18th July 2013:
I had to read this when I saw it was a Snow Patrol because I do love Snow Patrol and I'm so glad I did! This was beautifully written! I've never seen anything quite like it!

It was a really creative idea and you pulled it off brilliantly. Usually I'm pulling for Severus in these stories, but you had me conflicted. James just seemed like such a great guy, despite everything.

I loved that you had Severus call Lily a mudblood to protect her from him, instead of in anger. It really makes sense that he would have done that and that he's not such a bad guy. He really cares about her and that's why he said it. But it seemed so realistic that he almost wished it hadn't worked, that he still wanted her.

Okay, now onto the big thing. James thanked Severus for Lily? Yes please! That was perfect! I've never seen that written anywhere before and I adore it! Really, it was my favorite part of the story! Not only does James admit to needing help with Lily, but he acknowledges that in getting what he wanted Severus lost the most important thing in the world and that adds so much depth to both their characters. I have no words, that was just perfect.

This whole story was wonderful and I love it so much! You have a real talent and I hope you keep writing!

Author's Response: Wow, what an amazing message - thank you so, so much! :) I literally cannot describe how happy this review has made me; I'm so pleased that you enjoyed it...I completely agree with you - I always liked James waaay too much for him not to notice or appreciate how much Severus had given up for him and I never thought that Severus could be that cruel so I really thought it was time to try and write something which fitted with that... But I'm never too sure about these one-offs because normally I prefer writing about Remus and/or Sirius so it's amazing to have such a lovely review. Thank you so much, you've made my day! xx

Hi! Oh that was SO sad. I feel so bad for Severus. I thought it was nice that James thanked him at the end. James is not one of my favourite characters, but I like how you write him - much more humble and relatable. Awesome job :)

Author's Response: Hi! Thank you, you are too sweet with your reviews :) Yeah, I really like the idea of James actually not being as much of an idiot as he's made out to be, not sure I'd like him so much otherwise!! Really glad you enjoyed it :D Will update Confusion as soon as I have a moment to write the next chapter ;) xxx
