Very good insights into both of their thought patterns. Lily sees where Severus is headed and he sees she's over-reacting/forgetting their histories . . . both are losing their only true friend.
Even though it's a POV story. ( POVs irritate me to death - jumping back and forth - but it was just two in this so, okay )
Just one nit-picky point, at the time of Severus' initiation, he wouldn't know that Baldie Voldie will kill Lily in two years . . . you can have them think back to things that were said, but Severus is not Sybil Trelawney - he can't see into the future.
This was a really lovely piece. I love how you protrayed those two!
I loved this :) I swear I have read it before. I'm a Sev/lily fan and this is just heartbreaking. It conveys the tough times they face, the hard decisions made - and the regret and sadness.
The loss of such a solid friendship based on a word that meant nothing, yet means everything.This is very well done!
Thanks Elena :)
Its possible that you have read it before. I cross posted on AO3, FFN, HPFT and was on HPFF until I decided to remove my stories from that archive.
I'm glad you enjoyed reading it and thanks so much for the review
