First... I love that song. I wish I'd seen this challenge, I would've been all over it. I'm so excited. I really love that song!
(puts on song to read this)

I don't think I've ever seen this interpretation of Peter's motivations. I think it's entirely plausible, and extraordinarily interesting. The way that you wrote this was so sad and desperate. I almost feel bad for him. Almost.

Where I still feel that his character is unlikable is how much he dislike's Lily. The way he talks about her still paints him as this jealous, negative person.

Overall, I really loved this story. You wrote such a fascinating story, and it's really made me think about this character.

I really do think that Peter must have been a really complicated and conflicted person to have done what he did, and I really like the way that you characterized him! This was a quick read, but it really was a great read! I'm really glad that I stumbled upon this.

Oh god this was hard to read. In a good way though.

I was scrounging around your Author's page, and came across this and it totally drew me in. I've heard of some weird slash pairings but never this. This was so.. I don't have a word for it.

I think you just wrote this beautifully. I felt his pain, and for the entire story, I felt bad for Peter. I really did. It was so, so, poetic. Yeah, hat's the word. Or maybe it isn't but we'll go with that.

Oh, the chills! I'm still trying to control myself. Inhaling, exhaling.. woooh.

Anyways, I think you did a fabulous job, it was amazingly written. I love how you said, "I'm good at keeping secrets." The use of that phrase was so brilliant, it made me quiver.

So nicely written, a wonderful job and I'm sure you'll do so, so good in the challenge. I think you deserve to place well in it!

Review #5, by UnluckyStar57 You Outta Know

24th August 2013:
Hi! I am so very excited that you entered my challenge, and I am SO very sorry that I'm SO late in giving you this review!!

For starters, I thought that this was a really original idea. In the fanfiction realm, I've always seen Peter either paired off with Mary McDonald or some random OC, or just completely alone and single and friendless. This is different. This story gets inside his head, offers a possible explanation for his actions, and explores a facet of his character that maybe hasn't been explored before.

I think that's really awesome. And I think that you used the quote that I gave you to its full advantage! It definitely worked, because in this case, Peter was truly the one who loved James first, and didn't really receive much love in return. It's nostalgic, like the song, because they both reflect on something that has ended, a relationship, severed by the end of a life or the end of an era. And like the story of Samson and Delilah, Peter's story can be seen from a totally new perspective. Perhaps Peter is just as misunderstood as Delilah was--perhaps they are both villains by accident. Who knows?!

Excellent job! I'm so glad that you wrote this! :)

May your pen never run out of ink!

I like your characterization of Peter. In the flashback scenes from the books, he always does seem a little in love with James and I liked the way you ran with that. Super cool :)
