Author's Response: Thanks :)
that was amazing :)
i really like that switch from the POV's
made it more interesting to see the story from snapes point of view.... :)
Author's Response: Thanks :) I'm glad you liked it.
I decided to save my review for after both chapters, since you said this was supposed to be just one long one-shot.
I thought you did a great job of ensuring the finality of Lily's break from Severus. And though I never thought about it before, I like the idea that Snape knew the spell to heal Draco because Lily used it to heal Snape's own misuse of the Sectumsempra spell.
Author's Response: Thanks! There are some things about this I would change now, looking back, but I guess that's how writing goes :) I'm glad you liked it and enjoyed that bit about how Severus knows the healing spell. I assume he wouldn't have thought of it when he was thinking about the spell itself.
I truly appreciate the effort you put into this story, and can sum it up with-IT'S SO AWESOME AND YOU'RE AN AWESOME AUTHOR!!!! happy, cheers,winks,yada yada
happy holidays, everyone!! -CF
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it so much! Thanks, and happy holidays to you, too :)
Author's Response: ;)
“You’re girl?” repeated Snape, his lip curling. “She won’t be you’re girl for much longer."
"You're" means "you are."
"Your" is related to posession. His, her, your, mine.
Just a small typo, but overall great story. I really liked it. Especially the "clementine" part. I literally laughed out loud.
Author's Response: Ah! Believe me I know the difference. *sigh* Typos will be the death of me. I'll have to fix that. Thanks very much for pointing it out! I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of the story.
I love this story it is by far one of my fav. Lily and James stories
Author's Response: Thanks very much! Being a favorite is always high praise :)
I absolutly love this story. You did an amazing job in this. I like how Snape didn't like her when they were friends, but when the wern't friends he started seeing her differently. I really like how he is trying to win he back but she moved on and he lost his chance with her. I could tell that it was over for them at the end of the story even though he still loved her. I loved it.
I also like how you have James and Lily always touching even if it's something small and Snape notices. You do a good job in showing James and Lily's love for each other in every story you do, and especally in this one. I could see how Snape would get mad.
I would tell you how you did with grammer and everything like that, but I cant spell for crap. From what I could tell, you did good with it.
Author's Response: Thanks! I often have a few typos and Americanize things, so its good to read that you didn't find too many! I've never really liked Snape, and some people thing I was too harsh on him in this story, but in my head something along the lines of this is honestly what happened, and I'm you thought I did a good job with it! I hate it when people think that Lily was in love with Snape -- I think she could have been, but he messed things up too badly and lost his chance. Thanks again for the review! :)
This story is my favourite Lily and James story. It's absolutely perfect, exactly what I imagine the dynamics of the Marauders, Lily and Snape to be. Well done, you should be proud! x
Author's Response: Thanks you very much! Being a favorite is always high praise, and I'm glad you took the time to tell me! :)
Hands down, the best HP fic I've read in a long time. It is very well-written and your portrayal of Snape is exactly how I imagined him to be after reading Deathly Hallows.
I'll definitely be rereading this one. Awesome job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you though I portrayed Snape well. He was never among my favorite characters -- and he still isn't -- so I'm never sure if I'm doing his character justice when I write him. It's good to know you think I am! :)
I don't know if I've already written a review for this story, but I still love it, no matter how many times I read it. It's one of those unforgettable fics, where it just sticks in your mind. I kept thinking of it while I read DH (for the 100th time) and I just had to come back and read it again.
I love everything you write, as I say in almost every review I give you, but this fic is my favorite. I'm not sure you should right a prequel/sequel. You ended it so well, I think another fic about it would ruin it slightly for me...not that I wouldn't love the new one...and the old one...and read them once every month...
You're and amazing author!

Author's Response: Thanks! Whether you've written another one or not -- I always appreciate an extra review ;) I loved DH, I still love DH, obviously, but it left me a little unsettled the first time. I got even more unsettled when I saw that apparantly half the fanfiction community got the impression from DH that Lily never really loved James and was in fact mad for Snape. Well, um, no. This was my why of dealing with all of that, and I'm quite proud of the end result. I'm glad you like it too! This is certainly one of my favorites of my own writings. As for whether I'll ever write a prequel or sequel . . . I don't know. I'm involved in so many other projects write now, for both Harry Potter fandom and others, and if I ever did write a follow-up to this story, I'd want to do it proper justice. Plus, as you point out, this story really stands well alone. Still, it's appealing. . . . Oh, well, I guess we'll see!
That was the best representation of the James/Lily/Snape love triangle i have ever read and i have read a lot...
Author's Response: Thanks very much! :)
I absolutely loved it. I always get a lump in my throat whenever I think about it. I actually feel sorry for Snape. It's definitely a story like no other. I cant tell you how much I loved it. It was wonderful.
Author's Response: Thanks very much! :)
oh i have read this before but i love it so much
Author's Response: I'm glad!
wow... nothing else to describe it!
Author's Response: :)
Holy wizards. That was such a good piece ofwriting! Except now I feel sad because Snape's life basically went downhill from there. *sob* Oh wow, this probably sounds really corny but your fan fic is so good, it's indescribable. Please write a prequel or something to it!
Author's Response: I do want to write either a prequel or sequel to it, and I have a number of ideas swirling through my head to that effect. Hopefully in the distant future something will be posted. . . . Thanks very much for the review, I don't care if it's corny! :)
btw... wat abt the prequel or sequel... watever .... just rite somethin k?!!
read it for wat must be the thousand'th time!! n it never seems to bore me!! i cant actually say how much i love this fic... my favorite (note: not sayin one of my favorite's... this one's rite on the top!!)
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad it's your favorite; it really is my baby -- one of my best fics, in my opinion. :)
Id like to congratulate you on a terrific story. you really hammered it.
that gave me goosebumbs(in a good way). it was so sad it almost made me cry *wipes away tear drop*
I loved that story. Even though i love snape i know that Lily fits much better with james and this story made that really clear. im adding this story to my favorites.
Author's Response: Thanks very much; I'm glad I was able to give you goosebumps -- I always try and evoke emotions with my writing. :)
P.S. I saw from earlier reviews that you're trying to think of songs for possible prequels and sequels; My Immortal by Evanescence strikes me as something that might fit nicely somewhere, depending on where you plan to take the story. Hope that helps!
Author's Response: Thanks for the tip! :)
