Just...why?

Why?...how could he do that? how could he give up his love for his best friend? Why, Sirius? Why? Why did he do that? I just don't understand! He could have been happy! He could have been...so...! WHY!

Oh my god...
I'm sorry...that was dramatic.but it feels like my heart is wrenched into two.

That was truly brilliant. Everything, the format the style, the diction, the beautiful contrast of vague and detailed memories, the concept (3rd Man), and the end. Everything!

Two parts that I truly admire:
1) the comparison to Arthur and Lancelot, and how Lily says that he's not Lancelot, he's Sirius Black (and how he thinks 'in what way')--gosh that is beautiful
2)daisies, oh god...about how she didn't say out loud the 'loves me' 'loves me not'

This is the only story that has ever made me cry from that deep place in my body (do you know the one?).

Stunning.

Author's Response: Oh wow! This review! Thank you very much for all your wonderful compliments - it's fantastic to hear that you've liked this story to such an extent and that it was able to invoke strong feelings. I can't explain how happy I am that this story had this effect on you. I never thought that this story would be able to do that, but it has, and I'm speechless.

It's so hard to understand what could have happened between James, Lily, and Sirius if the latter loved her just as much. There's that code of friendship that James expects Sirius to abide by, yet doesn't seem to think it applies to himself. James here is pretty arrogant, and Sirius submits to his will, perhaps driven by some unconscious knowledge that James and Lily were "meant to be" for a prophetic reason if nothing else. I don't understand it either - I don't know if there's any way to understand.
