I just finished reading your story. it was a delight to read and a great way of adding some positive insight to Snapes rather dark life. You did a great job and the humour as well as the language was great. Thanks!
Author's Response: Thank you for your comments! You're the first reader to leave me a review in over three years. You made my day!
Summary: As Lily Evans, Sirius Black, and James Potter enter their Seventh Year, the outside world is darkening. But inside the merry walls of the school, love is abound. Except for Lily, who is too busy trying to quell the horrifying realization that intense dislike might not be the ONLY feeling she has for James Potter after all... And for Sirius, who feels himself darkening with the world, lost in his own intense and disturbing feelings for a certain redhead...
Thanks for an interesting first chapter!
So a few thoughts that went through my mind when reading it:
- nice with a poem at the beginning
- french? Do anybody know that sentence, or would they have to look it up like me?
- Is it a flashback or real time? Not really sure... But I like his imagination of himself as an old man.
- Nice detail with the metaphor of the mountain and Lily.
Overall a lot of depth and strength in the story and it makes you want to read on and see what is hiding on the other side.
I am curious :)
Author's Response: Hey! Thank you very much for your review. - Thanks, I went back and forth about how to begin, and something poetic seemed right... - French. I wasn't sure about this, as I know what people mean by je ne sais quoi when I hear it SPOKEN-- but I myself had to look up how to write it properly... - The prologue is actually a flash FORWARD. I know that's confusing as the first chapter then begins with a flashback. I have actually changed the first chapter now to make it a little less confusing. But the prologue is a glimpse into Sirius' mind well into our story... - Thank you very much:)
