Amazing. Completely amazing. This is so amazing. I don't even know what to say, really.

Like everyone else, I thought the story really well-done and I loved it. I've never seen Snape/Lily told this way, its always been Snape chasing and making moves on Lily. Not the other way around, so I was really enjoying myself as I was reading this because it gave me a lot of insight at what could've gone through Lily's head in those times. And the fact that she didn't mention James at all was absolutely fantastic; we all need a break from James Potter at one point in life.

I loved the fact that there's no dialogue in the story, not only because I couldn't imagine having them but it was really nice to read Lily's thoughts. I love how she was doubtful and confused about the war, Snape and how she was so concerned about Snape.

There are those times just after I read your stories that I would wish that Snape and Lily had just been together. Then I would wonder what would happen if the case was so; what would've changed and not changed. So yeah, your stories make me think a lot! :P

Anywho, I thought the story was really good and you have such an amazing talent for writing. ♥ You just made the task of deciding a winner for this challenge a million times harder. :P

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! It's wonderful to hear that you liked how this story turned out. I really enjoyed trying out your challenge - it made writing this a bit harder, but it suited the story to have no dialogue. The one thing I wasn't sure about was whether including so much of Lily's thought process would be somewhat like cheating. It's a great relief that the story fits the challenge.

I'm even more glad, though, that the characterization of Lily has proven successful. She's one of those characters who has been characterized by fanon moreso than canon, and that makes it dangerous to fiddle with her personality. Until you mentioned it here, I didn't realize that I'd entirely removed James from the equation. It makes sense that he wouldn't be in Lily's thoughts at this particular time, but I'm wondering why I forgot him. XD At the end, it is implied that Snape had been in a fight, but that's more likely to be Sirius's work. Haha, I'm glad that the omission made for a nice break. There's only so much Lily-James hate-love a person can take. :P

Yay! It's wonderful to hear that my stories make you think - it's what I love to be able to do. Fanfiction is mostly about "what ifs" for me, so it's nice to be able to pass that on to others. ^_^

Thank you so much for the challenge and for this review! It means a lot that you've liked this story!
