What an interesting story! First off, bully for Neville for living to be 187!
Second, I never really thought about Lily being lucky that she got to choose when she died, but we all know that if she would have let Harry be killed, she would have died a slow, miserable death, and Snape would have never had his soul redeemed.
I guess in retrospect, she was that lucky, because if she had not died, many, many more would have suffered. In essence, she gave the wizarding world a gift greater than even Harry had done.
I love the "makes you think" stories. Fabulous work. :-)
Wow, that whole thing snd shivers down my spine, either that or sitting in my room with the window in the middle of the night with no t-shirt on was a very bad idea.
I loved this story all th way through and i couldn't help but think, why didn't James' sacrifice protect lily, since he died trying to save her?
