Awwwww.... I LOVES this story!!!! It makes me sad but its so well written!!!!
Ah, the bastard nature of the causality loop, with effect preceding cause. This was a remarkable tale, and I liked the use of present tense, which made it like traveling over James's shoulder in his journey.
I'm sure I've read part of this before, perhaps before it was all posted? I've just finished POA again, and I read this in hopes of a similar ending, that James would save Laura, like Sirius and Buckbeak were saved. I thought it awful that he went through all that and she died anyway, and it's even worse because he frightened her into falling. I know the message was that he knew he'd done wrong and she decided not to jump, but I still hate the ending.
Author's Response: Aw, don't hate the ending! Actually, the ending was supposed to signify two things - that James had to pay for what he'd done wrong and that you can't change what has already happened. I refuse to believe that a person can change history!! Anyway, if James had saved Laura he would have been in big trouble with the Ministry - who knows what they would have done. Changing histroy is very dangerous anyway. I'm sad you didn't like the ending - hope you liked the rest of the story in the end. I'm not very good at keeping endings happy - I like the darkness and angst of a shocking end. >_< Thanks for the review!
this is so sad, im almost crying.
Author's Response: I'm glad you thought so! :)
Hmm... this is an intriguing start. Is "Lily" a shortening of "Laura"? I didn't get that at the beginning, because in his mind James calls her "Laura." I think he would have called her Lily instead. Well that was a tiny thing, but in general, this is good!
Author's Response: Hi! Well, this is James Potter II (Harry's son) grown-up. So Laura is his wife. :)
