| Very Small Prophet chapter 10 . 12/26/2012
Dumbledore and Severus treat Lily like a helpless child because she behaves like one. She WANTS to have Severus killed by Death Eaters? That would make her every bit as much a single mother as going into hiding alone. What an idiot she is!
Self-sacrificing Sev needs to be the one in charge here, not self-centered Lily. It’s interesting to see that, whereas in canon it was James’s feckless overconfidence in his best mates that caused disaster, this time it’s Lily’s irresponsible refusal to listen to Severus. Or maybe it’s Severus’s weakness in not laying down the law when he knows he’s right and she’s wrong. Either way, tragedy approaches!

What a pity that Lily – superficial, irrational, incapable of thinking ahead – is the one in charge of this relationship. All she has to do is whip out the emotional blackmail ("You said you would do what it takes to keep me.") and Sev caves, to the detriment of their survival. Did she really think Severus could call Voldemort and and say he’s taking a few weeks off to work on his tan in Marjorca? Is the opportunity to hold Sev’s hand in public more important to her than their lives? Gryffindors are half-wits!

Well, finally Lily stops teasing Sev and is willing to commit, although I don’t trust her for a moment. She dumped him in a split-second once before, and now she’s done the same to James. Who’s to say Sev won’t be kicked to the wall again the next time she finds something about him annoying? Will Sev escape with his heart intact? I suppose I’ll have to keep reading to find out.

I see this version of Lily completely lacks a moral compass, and she’s a weakling besides. Severus definitely deserves better, and so does James, for that matter. You’ve managed to make Lily even worse than she appears in canon, which is going some, and at the same time she’s a perfectly believable extension of what we little we see of her in the books. I hope Severus escapes her evil clutches in the end, but I fear he won’t. An interesting tale!

This is her way to say good-bye? Lily is a cruel bitch indeed. Not even drunkenness excuses it. I suppose it’s to her credit that she has warned Severus in advance that he’s to be seduced and abandoned, but that is a tiny scrap of honor for one of the so-called Good Guys. The Gryffs have always been villains as far as their behavior to Severus is concerned.

the news that their happy accident was to vanquish the darkest wizard in the world...well...the entire situation was overwhelming to say the least. Instead of pushing them apart, however, it had brought them closer together.
"All I know is he was...unhappy with his choices - there was something he wanted to discuss with me, but I...I didn't have the time and then I was with you and then..." She thought a sob escaped Severus
..but...I hope you don't regret spending the time with...me..."
He shook his head. "No no no...I just..."
"Lily, despite the terror and uncertainty of our future, I cannot imagine spending it with anyone else. Please forgive me for not doing this sooner. Marry me and you will make me the happiest wizard in the world."
"I am in love with you, Lily. Perhaps you love me, but aren't in love." She felt his arms tighten around her - probably so she wouldn't look at his face. "There is no reason to marry if you would rather not. Convention cannot dictate our lives. We could raise...him or her...together - unmarried."
"If you break my heart now, Lily..." He trailed off.
Tomorrow, I will marry the father of my child - an important child...not because of some prediction or unique circumstances. Our child is important because it is ours.
"James, I'm sorry you were asked. I can't fathom why Dumbledore-"
(wow...much as I hate James, this is cruel of Dumbles. I find it very hard to believe there's nobody else he could bring. Minerva? Molly? Filch?)
"You seem to forget I was in his place not long ago. I was looking at the remainder of my life without you."
"How can you not see how you affect me...or...Potter?"
"What do you mean?"
"Oh, Lily..." His long fingers slid over her cheek as he tucked her hair behind her ear. "So beautiful...so naive."

"However, we are not here to discuss our son or daughter's future at Hogwart's. Please...get to the point."
"There is a prophecy..." His mouth opened, but no sound emerged. He swallowed before continuing. "It is regarding a child born at the end of April."
When all is done, none shall remain
(that's a bit open ended)
"Oh, Severus...I am so sorry...You haven't been able to enjoy our...news...at all, Sev."
"Damn it!" Lily startled them both, but ignored it. "I will not have the two of you planning my life - or the life of our child -" she looked pointedly at Severus "- without me. Understood?"
Lily felt nausea and anger washing over her and she stood, eyes blazing - hair flying around her. "How dare you? He came to you for help - to help you too - and you...you..."
"I won't. I can't. You do realize what he's implying, don't you?" She grabbed his shoulders. "He wants me to leave you for James. Surely, you see that."
"More than anything I want you to be safe - more than I want to be happy, more than I want to hold my child in my arms...and if you and..." His hands covered her stomach gently, "...are safer without me, then..." He turned his face away.
"I'd rather be alone than raise our child with Potter. You must know he would be awful to our child."
(phew ... I'm so relieved they are not going with the James plan)
"Really? You will go with me?"
He held her gaze and she knew he was being honest and true. "Yes."
(Will Voldemort be able to attack Sev through the Dark Mark while Sev is in hiding with Lily?)
