Aww, thanks! Reviews always brighten my day. Especially on older stories. James and Lily's limelight always does fly to different places, doesn't it?
I LOVE the premise of this story. It really shows how Lily and James were completely unaware of their imminent death. I also appreciate that you didn't feel the need to elaborate on their death. The ending was beautiful, and simple. I like your characterization of James, and how he was forced to grow up too fast. That is how I always though of James as an adult.
Overall it is a beautifully written story.
Oooh, so good! *wipes away tear that would undoubtably trickling down her cheek, were she not in a public area* Loved it! So sad! I never thought about James thinking about death, but of course he must have-- I mean, everyone does, and we aren't in mortal danger, but James and his family are being hunted by Voldemort, so of course it's on his mind most of the time. Well done.
Author's Response: Wow, you have been reviewing a lot of my stuff lately, haven't you? In any case, it certainly is appreciated. James is human just like the rest of us. It seemed only fitting that it would have been on his mind. Thanks again! -Stubby
This story is so sweet and so sad at the same time, I loved it though. This was very well written, so good-job!
Author's Response: Thanks! I intended for there to be a bittersweet feel.
in response to your note - i think u made the right choice. its sounds a lot better.
i really love this story.
Author's Response: Why, thanks. I think so too.
wow, i really like this!!! that was a really creative idea, well done!
Author's Response: :D Thanks, Tomato. May I call you that? Or do you prefer Rager? In any case, thank you for reading; I'm glad you liked it. -Stubby
Ooh, Stubby, this got accepted!
I rain congratulations upon ye!
*rains congratulations upon ye*
I really like the new ending line. Very, very powerful.
But all of this was great! (And I'm glad I convinced you that it's NOT RUBBISH. ^_~)
Author's Response: Ooh, Katie, yes it did! I rain thanks upon ye! *rains thanks upon ye* The new ending line, I must admit, is one I'm particually fond of. With your magnificent beta-ing skills and help, and a great suggestion from Phil, I got a rehashed ending that is a lot better than the original. Oh, yes, it's not rubbish. Coming from me, that's like 'I love it!'. Thanks again! -Stubby
*bites her quivering lip*
that was very good, Stubby. i liked the line you wrote in your A/N, but somehow the reference to the colours is always more believable and touching.
poor James. descriptions were really very good. i loved how you talk about things such as trick or treating and kicking leaves. James' reaction to the muggle Halloween was sweet.
He forgets that maybe, maybe this is a promise he cannot keep. James forgets that maybe there might not be a tomorrow.
*nods her head impressively*
P.S: what is it with dark fictions leaving you sad, Stubby? :)
Author's Response: *grins idiotically* Oh, thakees, Akay! I love to slip in little descriptions and small passages. It just makes things more... touching, in my opinion. I do rather like James' opinion of Halloween. That line's one of my favourites, too. That was originally going to be the next-to-ending paragraph (With just 'There is a bang at the door' after it.), but then I added more. Did it make you sad? How marvellous. -Stubby
Wow. That was great; especially the "tomorrow" lines. When I finished the story I noticed my heart was beating really hard.
Author's Response: Ooh! Thanks, Natida. It's cool to hear that my writing actually excites a reaction in people. -Stubby
