Excellent, suspenseful story! First person worked very well and captured Snape well. I also enjoyed your perspective on Snape's thoughts about Lily during those last two years they didn't speak. Very good writing!

Author's Response:

Hello! I'd you enjoyed the story. I have to admit, climbing into Snape's head isn't a pleasant experience, especially considering the myriad of psychological disorder which he could very well have. It's a bit disconcerting, to be sure. First person was probably the best way to get that discomfort across to the reader without the over-the-top way second person POV would've done.

Even though Jo said that there was nothing sinister about the death of Lily's parents, it's actually very, very odd to think about the fact that both James's and Lily's parents died in the same timeframe. It would almost be ridiculous to think that were possible. So I decided that it wasn't, and here you have it.

Anyway, thank you for the visit and the review!

Final Confrontation by artsy_werewolf

Summary: Why did Peter Pettigrew do it? Why did he reveal the Potters' location to Voldemort? Why did things turn out that way?
One-shot. Rating is for strong language.

Hey, I think this story was interesting but it was kinda a stretch for me to imagine Wormtail having the guts to go tell James what was up. Also, I think James would have told Lily. But nevertheless I think you did a good job of capturing what may have been running through Wormtail's and James' minds in this situation.

Cute story! And so sad. Also very sad many kids go through the same fear, abuse, and pain and often endure it for the sake of someone else, like their mother.

Nice story. I like how you expounded on some events presented in "The Prince's Tale" and captured both Lily's and Snape's perceptions. I also like that you included Snape's, shall we say dysfunctional, father/home because I think it is so important to how he turned out and perhaps why he disliked "Muggles" so much. Also this story really drives home the point that Severus was the person who introduced Lily to magic/the magical world, so obviously he had a real impact on her life. Plus, if your timeline is correct, they had two years of friendship and bonding going into Hogwarts. It is so sad how things turned out between them! :( But I guess it was all for the best so Voldemort could be defeated.

Set in August 1974, Severus and Lily are spending some time together in their favourite spot - a secluded field next to the park in which they first met - but little are they to know that this will be their final summer together as friends...

A really nice little story that has a lot of "between the lines" content, making it really meaningful and making the reader really have to track the dialogue, tone, and actions of the characters to get an accurate impression of what has happened. Seems true to the characters portrayed in the orginal books too. Enjoyed reading it!
