This was a fantastic story! At first I didn't quite see the point, but afterword I definitally did. One typo I noticed, in the part where James stopped calling her 'love', you said, "She'd dodged into an opening between two building and prepared to Disapparate......" and I think instead of building it should be buildings. My favorite parts were the Lily/Severus and Lily/James relationships. Good job!

Author's Response: Thanks! So glad you liked it, and thanks for pointing out the typo.

I am so used to reading stories where Marauders veer of to one end and Snape veers of to other, and Lily becomes a paragon of goodness ( something I have been a little guilty of in my stories as well) that it is refreshing to read the characters so..rounded, and human. The fact James can say that Lily can save Snape, shows us why Lily fell in love with him. You have, in a one shot, developed his character within the snippets of Lily's life. Same with petunia, and with Snape. Although, this could be my Sirius loving heart speaking, I loved the Sirius calling her Morgana and her response. So adorable! :D
And to round this off with the names she had been called, its brilliant. So, I shalla dd it to my favorite stories. :)

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm so glad you liked the story. Lily and James (and Sirius and Remus and Snape and even Peter) are my favorite characters to write because they are so complex and... well, human. They'd all be so much less interesting if they were completely good or completely evil.

Dawnie, that was simply beautiful. You practically had me crying my eyes out.

Author's Response: Thanks! I was a little wary about this one because I don't write character studies much and wasn't sure I could do a good job, so it's nice to hear that people liked it!

This is a very sweet story, and I think you really encapsulated Lily's life well, simply through what she's called. I think my favourite part was when she considered that she might have chosen Sev over her sister, and then he called her a Mudblood - there was a great parallel between Petunia and Sev there which worked really effectively.

You really grasped Lily's development as a character, through all the different names. I also enjoyed Sirius calling her Morgana - it gave this story a fresh touch. After all, the idea that Sirius got jealous of Lily is hardly new, but the way you used it felt really fresh and I really loved how she resolved it - on his terms, rather than hers.

One little comment - this paragraph - He’d started calling her that in their fourth year, and interspersed it between Evans and other ridiculous pet names that she hated. Fortunately, he’d given up on those – possibly because she threatened to hex him into oblivion when he used names like cookie and peach – but love had stuck, and he’d never stopped calling her that. - felt a bit repetitive, because you'd written all that in earlier sections. I think the story would work better without it.

I loved the ending, and the way you connect Lily and love, particularly because it works well with canon, as it is Lily - and love - which save Harry.

You did a great job of balancing Lily and James' relationship, her childhood, her friendship with Sev and the war so that this really feels like a story about Lily and everything she went through.

So this was a well-written and well-characterised sweet story, which I really enjoyed.


Author's Response: Thanks for all the feedback! I'm glad you liked the Sirius bit, that was actually the hardest for me to write and I wasn't sure it would work well. The Freak-Mudblood section was one of the first that I wrote, and quite possibly my favorite. And you are completely right about the paragraph you pointed out. I wrote that section (Lily and love) before writing the pet names section (James comes up with weird pet names), and so at the time, the paragraph was necessary. But then when I wrote the other section, I didn't realize that the paragraph in question was now redundant. Thanks for pointing it out.
