My only suggestion, warning wise, would be to add a Mild Teen Violence warning.
Besides that, a very sad piece. So few words, yet very emotional. His life wasn't the best of lives and I'm sure he could have been a 'better' man, but what he did was the bravest. I think even more brave then Harry facing Voldemort.
Severus lived every day wrapped up in a lie, always having his motives questioned and never allowed to just be himself. Too much was riding on him...that is something many people don't get.
I don't like the way he died or the fact that he died at all. But I think he deserved a more dignified death...But I guess, death by snake bite happens too!!!
The last bit...about the eyes! There are also many people who hate the fact that JKR made Snape good and in love with Lily. To me, its....fitting. He was tormented by Harry's father and loved the woman he married. Obviously, 10 years later when he met the boy who looked so much like the boy who taunted him, and the eyes of the woman he loved would have made him angry. I think guilty too, for not being able to save Lily.
I think you gave him the justice he needed. Not to be forgived, but understood. He had his reasons and put his life on the line every day since Lily's death.
Warning added. ;)
You're quite right about Severus, and I'm glad that you think I succeeded in portraying his death well.
As for Lily... I don't like the idea of Snape being in love with her, I just didn't really see it in his character at all. But I suppose that with all the hints we've had in the earlier books, this was just inevitable.
Thank you so much for reading this, for your help with my, erm, rating problems, and for your long and lovely review! =) *huggles*
Now this is an excellent little story, as it covers al lot of emotional territory in a few short paragraphs.
I especially love the last lines"Why it measn so much . . you know not."
That in itself is a great quote.
Loved it, will recommend it on my list, too!
