That was amazing. I love the twist that you've put into the conventional Godric's Hollow scene, and it's worked so well. :)

Aww! This fic is so beautiful and cute, yet it is so sad and heartbreaking at the same time. I applaud you. The reasoning for James and Lily finally going out was really good, and very believable. Fantastic story, I'm glad I stumbled upon it. :)

Wow. That was very beautiful and poignant. I especially liked how Lily's telling her story as a fairy tell echoed the fairy-tale like quality of the first book somehow, when Harry first learned he was a wizard. Subtle, but I think it really added something special to this one shot.

That was amazing! I'd never actually thought about what had happened that night when Lily and James died. Bravo!

Oh my gosh! This was excellent. All the time Lily was telling the story I could feel myself getting more and more anxious. I love the tragic-ness (is that a word?) of Lily not getting to even finish the story. *wonders away to find a tissue*

I just reviewed your other story, so now i'm gunna review this one!!!

You seriously almost sent me into a coma though. Cuz it was like Happy, happy, sweet, happy, happy, AHHH, scary, sad, AHHH!

But the first parts really did make me laugh! Like the 'crying...louder crying...hiccup, then silence...' i dunno why, but that part made me laugh.

But then I cried at the last part. So sad, but it's really sweet that she died after remembering and telling the tail of her and james : ) Great story!

Oh my goodness. I actually have to admit, though I'm a bit unhappy about it, that I got teary on this one. Right away I could tell you had a good writing style. Your words and ideas flowed very well and I could easily see the picture you were painting. The part where James is speaking to Harry seemed very feasible, to me. I find that in a lot of fics containing child/parent interaction, it seems kind of forced. But you did a lovely job of it. I could practically feel the love ooze through every word.


Throughout the fairytale that Lily told Harry, I kept having giggles at the context of the story itself. Lines like: "Unlike the princess, many of the other girls in the land really liked the big ugly troll and his best friend." and "He was stinky and mean." had me grinning for quite a while. You did a very good job making Lily speak in a childlike voice for her fairytale.

And then all of a sudden the atmosphere changed entirely. I was upset when I read on to see the 'crash!' and hear James holler for Lily to run. I even let out a little cry of protest. There I was thinking that I was reading a sweet story of mother and child when you sprang that one on me! Very clever, I might add.


If I were to say anything un-praiseworthy about this fic, it would be that I found the thoughts of Lily when she realized Voldemort was there sort of disappointing - mainly because she didn't have many. It would have been nice to hear a bit more of her thoughts on the situation. Also, Muggle is capitalized.


With that out of the way, your closing was superb. The irony that Lily had been about to say 'and they lived happily ever after', and the fact that she never did, is a heartbreaking testimony to the night that she and James died. Your final words sum it up perfectly:


“No Happy Ending for James and Lily Potter”

WAAAAAA! You had me entirely drawn into your story. When I read "No happy ending for James and Lily" I actually teared up (and it is really rare for me to be that drawn in to a story).
I enjoyed how Lily told the "fairy tale" of how she and James fell in love. It was simple, cannon, and realistic. I absolutely loved it!

How nice and how sad! The begining was sweet^^ but the ending was understandably sad=,(. I really liked this story. It was very bittersweet. But than again I do like chocolate. Yes I'm weird but that's not the point. I'm gonna put this on my Favorites List now.

Yayyyyy, your story got put up! Anyway, I usually don't give constructive reviews, and I think I've already told you what I think. I just wanted to be the first to review :P
