Oh god, Mad, this is just perfect

It's ohso beautiful and I was tearing up at the funeral.

The imagery of this is so amazing, and I love how it didn't all seem to make perfect sense, because, well, not everything has to always make sense.

I loveloveloved your Molly- the actress/liar who thinks everyone hates her but is really quite a good person- it just fits her so perfectly. Oh, and your Lysander was so amazing too- and now I'm going to start on /Lily/, because this has to be one of the best Lilys I've read in quite a while o.O

She's so popular and people love her, but she's still got a dark side- it was just so fitting for her. And her loving puzzles was such an interesting thing for her, but you made it work.

I also found that, well, Molly and Lily seemed to be the mirror image of each other, y'know? Lily was good and loved with a mean streak and Molly was bad(butnotreally) and hated but she had a good side to her. And I don't know if that was deliberate, but I loved it all the same.

And god, how Molly blamed herself for not figuring out the puzzle soon enough was soso sad.

It's angsty and amazing and just, beautiful.

Well Madzingalingakins, you did it. You killed off Lily. And honestly, you did it brilliantly. The way you characterized Lily so that even though she's this popular girl whom everyone loves, she has a dark side was brilliant, because it showed the Lily that I love/hate. And then your Molly being an excellent liar and actress was brilliant. The way you had her think that no one liked her and that she was "paper-thin" (great imagery, by the way) was really intriguing.

And oh my rowling, your Lysander was gorgeous. His kind of helplessness without Lily, but yet the way he loved Molly- ugh, I want him. Can we share him, please?

So all in all, this was brilliant!

Mad, this is beautiful :)

I love the way not everything makes perfect sense and it's kinda got a dream-like quality to the whole story, if you know what I mean.

And it's not just a romance, it got adventure in there too, which is awesome.

Molly and Ly are so different to how I normally imagine them to be, but I really love the way you write them. I've never read a Slytherin!Molly before :)

I feel like I need to say more, but I don't know what to say...

It's angsty and different and the ending is happy and sad all at once and you still feel like Molly's broken, but that she's going to be fixed one day.

And you had be tearing up at Lily's funeral :'(

I love this, Mad. Thank you so much, darling :D &hearts xxx

Aww! This was very interesting, Mad. The mystery was nicely set up, and I liked your Slytherin!Molly too. You managed to convey so much in a short-ish fic! I really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing, and good job! :DD
