It was sad but I liked it a lot. It kind of reminded me of when I left my husband except for the part of Lily catching Scorpius with Tanya. That must have been a shock. It was realistic enough to bring up some memories I'd rather forget.

This left me feeling achingly sad and that's a good thing. Everything about it felt bleak - Lily's detached tone, the way you used snapshots of memories to detail their lost relationship, the slow reveal that Scorpius not only cheated on her but is now getting married and having a child, only a few months after the breakup. It's like Lily is packing up their life together just as she is packing up the flat, and I think there's a grim realism in that.

And on one hand I feel so frustrated at Lily's hopefulness that they can be friends, but on the other I just want to hug her and take her to a liquor store and buy some tequila and dance.

This fic just gave me a lot of feelings, okay! I guess that's a mark of something great.

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Alex, this was fabbity fabbbbb! I remember reading the original Rest in the Bed, and I was rather sad to see it go, so it was so nice to read this. I felt a lot of the questions I had regarding Scorpius/Lily were answered.

ZOMG, I loved it so much that I even forgave you for making Louis gay, lolol. Although you might have got the idea from that joke Lily made, hehehehehe :P No, seriously, I did like the fact that you had Louis and Lily as friends, at least, because I love any kind of relationship between them, and I think it was done fabulously, especially since it's clear they understood each other well.

Scorpius is a silly boy for choosing that Tanya bitch over Lily, though. O.o Still, he's hot :P I squeed so hard when you included the shower scene. I... for some reason, I had a thing for them, and though I'm over that now, I am so glad I kind of dared you to write it on AIM haha. And the shoehorn... lolololol. Like I didn't even know such a thing existed -- I had no idea a shoehorn was used as a noun.

And what I loved the most about this fic? It's just so simple in terms of plot, but the emotions felt by Lily and Scorpius are so much more complicated than that. Like I should have been mad at Scorpius for leaving Lily, but I couldn't be, because like Lily, I can't blame him for falling in love with someone else. (Given I am channelling Lily, this should come to no surprise :) )

Know that you are fabulous and that I don't deserve such loveliness. Heart youuuuuuu!

That was certainly a story that came from a different angle. Left me feeling sad.
