This was such a great read, I laughed so hard! I loved your happy Severus. This is probably exactly how an alternate ending for Lily and Sev would be. Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you-- happy Severus is kind of a tricky character to write, as you might imagine. I figured that it was wartime, and Severus would still have to be his somewhat diffident, prickly, quirky self-- and yet happy. It was fun and challenging to write, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.
