This was a wonderful story but I wish there was more action between James and Lily. Also, right after her parents died, you made it seem as though nothing big had happened. It was completely forgotten...I didn't like that. But otherwise, the story was good.

I love the story so far!
It is definitely different from all the other stories and very refreshing. Thanks!

I enjoyed reading your story, but there were several elements in your plotline that kind of irritated me along the way. For one, it seemed like a lot of the themes were fleeting, like they had their fifteen minutes of fame and then drifted away to never show up again. One of these was the fact that Lily was really easygoing in the beginning, which was fine, but then as soon as she snapped at James, she never really tried to control her temper despite her fear of being discovered anything but perfect. And then there were some things that appeared without any foundations - for instance, right after James caught Lily in the classroom with the knife they both began liking each other. Perhaps James' condition made sense because the thought crossed his (or rather, other peoples') mind before, but Lily immediately started liking him. It would have seemed more realistic if you had a period where she felt platonic, friend-like sentiments and absolutely no inclination of "love". There was also the whole suicide thing - that idea is pretty overused for AU-ish fics on this site, so it wasn't the most original, but that probably would have been fine anyway if you had managed to base Lily's actions to make more sense. It seemed pretty random that she immediately fell to that conclusion after hearing about her parents' death, and even though you had some details regarding the piling up of her feelings, it probably could have been elaborated on more. And of course there was the unresolved situation with Lily's friends - in one of the earlier chapters you mentioned that they didn't really know her, which brought up the potential problem for a rift, but you never addressed that again, and you didn't say whether or not Lily ever intended to tell them about her problems.
Even though it probably sounds like I thought your story wasn't very good, it was definitely interesting and very well-written, so I congratulate you on that. I also want to give you points for not doing a Sirius-Lily'sFriend relationship. Those usually bug me to no end.

Wow. That's just it, wow. So perfectly heart-touching way to show a beginning of a beautiful relationship (so cliche, but so wonderful!)

You, my friend, has once again achieved all greatness in this story. You are an absolute angel sent from the heavens above to free us from our Lily/James fanfic cravings, and make us feel that WAFF (warm and fuzzy feeling) inside...you, my friend, are an absolute genius.
And that is why i adore you, your brain, and your works. Only if i could achieve this kind of perfection in my rotting works...
Anyway, aside from these ramblings that i have presented your holy presence with, I would like to say that this masterpiece is an absolute...*looks for the right words* well, i'm unable to describe this brutally heartwarming story, since i'm speechless at the moment (James is just so sweet in every one of your stories! he makes my heart melt!)
Since i'm partly speechless for now, i can't find the right words to compliment you on your story, so i guess i have to leave now. I'm greatly sorry if this review took nothing but time from you.
Once again, great job. Absolutely one of the best there ever was.
Looking forward to read more of your works,
