Review:Lily Evans says:
This was such an interesting take on Severus and Lily. I've read so many Severus/Lily stories from Severus' point of view and the way you wrote this really pulled on some heartstrings.

I've always found it sad that Severus has hold on to Lily's memory for so many years, but it was precious that they both met again in heaven and that Lily was also waiting and watching him for as long as he had been remembering her.

How sweet and heartbreaking! 10/10 :)

Author's Response: Hello! I'm happy to see you here! :)

I do read a lot from Severus's point of view, and I wanted to do things in a different way. I feel like so many times all we get in Snily stories is Severus's perception of Lily, usually in her perfection. I wanted to show that Lily might have had some feelings for him that we don't see in canon or in those Snily stories, and that she's a human with her own flaws. I'm really glad that it worked emotionally.

It is really sad, and I didn't want to cheapen the piece by giving them a perfect ending (because that's part of the beauty of Snily, the imperfection, or so I think), but I still wanted it to be a better ending than what they got in canon. I think that comes through in Lily's reaction to him, too--they're both bewildered, shocked to see each other, and yet she can't just accept him with open arms. I don't think it's a stretch to imagine Lily's heaven being part Severus and part James.

Thank you for this very kind review :) I hope to see you around my other stories soon!

Amanda
