|Really enjoyed this one too! Even though now I somewhat loathe Lily all the more. Poor Severus, I guess this one shattered his last piece of his heart, that still was beating. Thanks for sharing, I love your writing-style! ;)|
Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to read and review. I thought it was important to show that Severus was not the only one to make mistakes, and that Lily made them too and regrets them.

|Hello! Thought I should have a look at some of your stuff as well. I liked this fic very much. I can understand the pain both of them feel. |
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it. Unrequited love is the most painful of all, and I know that from bitter experience. I'd like to think that with hindsight, Lily realised she chose the wrong man.

|Not being the world's greatest Lily fan, I felt some small measure of gratification that she also paid a pennance. She may have been a saint in the eyes of many, but one who seems in the books (but not your fic) never to have heard of forgiveness. Thanks for sharing.|
Author's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I thought it was a nice twist for her to also require forgiveness for her actions. Really happy you enjoyed it.

|'But I wanted you to know how I felt about you, so you can let go of me, and stop punishing yourself.' How on earth is he supposed to do that? Now he will regret that he has thrown away his chance of happiness by calling her Mudblood. Poor Severus!|
Author's Response: Poor Severus, but poor Lily too... She made the biggest mistake in shunning him, so she was the one who stopped them having a future...

|Her reason for shunning him make more sense with this tidbit of information. I know she wants him to feel free, but I think if it were me, I would feel doubly awful and doubly at fault. I'm not sure he'll ever let go now. Nicely written. |
Author's Response: At the very least she is sharing the blame, and Severus knows everything he did wasn't in vain

|I think that was beautiful, but I don't think he got any peace from it, just another regret. Sniff sniff.|
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it x
