Reviews for How It Came to Be
Obs. B chapter 5 . 10/11/2015
I don't really have the words for how great this is. I really, really liked this story. The changing perspectives really worked, and the ending was truly bittersweet; appropriate, really. A very good story.

it was good but the last chapter was kinda gay and didn't have any ipact on the story at all

Would love a James AND/or Lily persective.

When I tried to read chapter 4 - Prof M's viewpoint it was just a repeat of Rosmerta's... Not sure if FF is playing up. Thought I would alert you to it.

Nice story ta.

Hi there - I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful read!

By the way, I'll like to invite you to check out my own Harry Potter story "Inheritance"

Hope to see you around :)

I liked your story and agree that a retelling in first person would be a good idea. The only thing is, I tried to read part 4 but it was the same as part 3. Maybe you could fix that?

But otherwise its good, and it would be good to hear more of James or Lily's thoughts, so another story would be good!

I really liked it especially McGonagall's chapter!

I liked it but i think it would have been better to put another person point of view instead of mcgonagal...and the epilogue...was a bit weird

Wow! I never imagined the epilogue would be written from Snape's POV, but I LOVED IT. I've always been facinated with the Snape/ Lily ship, and I was pleased when it was at least half confirmed in DH. (It's my belief that Snape and Lily would have gotten together if Snape hadn't going the Death Eaters, but alas he did, and she married James).

I think you capture Snape's feelings and thoughts on Lily and her marriage to James perfectly.

Well done on a wonderful story, you really did an amazing job.

I have really enjoyed this series!

I do not know why there have not been more reviews. (all I can wonder if it does not have enough drama for some folk...)

BUT I think its really sweet & lovely.

Thanks for writing it.

I am looking forward to the epi.

It's always wonderful to find well-written, thought out stories on this site, especially as it's so full of trash.

I adore this story - I've read a few Lily and James fics in the past, but none of them have dealt with how they actually got together as well as you have. It's refreshing to read a change from the clich├ęd 'Lily and James are made Head Boy and Head Girl and because of that are forced to spend the summer together and then fall in love' etc.

I also liked that this story was written in four parts from different characters POV.

I think your characterization of everyone was perfect, and not once did anyone seem even slightly OCC.

Your use of language, description and emotion made this piece even more a joy to read.

I commend you on a great story, and look forwards to reading the epilogue.
