lavivi: scan from Hellsing manga of Integra and Alucard (Severus does triumph)

So I was already thinking as I re-read the first three chapters and started the new ones of Lily's Choice: all right, yeah, this alone - but definitely as I also consider givemethechild's Dark Side of the Moon - makes me feel quite positive I don't ever have to write Lily/Severus again. It's Been Done.

(Which is actually a distressing feeling - I still love my first OTP and don't want to drop them in any way, and while the new canon is certainly love, I still feel like I'm letting it defeat me.... But that has nothing to do with these two stories which are fucking gold, a million times better than anything I'll write anytime soon.)


And then I got to this quote...


"I wasn't aware it was a race," Lily muttered under her breath, her stomach churning. And if it was, I won two years before it even started.


OKAY THIS IS THE MOST BRILLIANT STORY EVER THE END.

And oh, with the delightful backwards-style of the story, I can hope WE'RE BUILDING TOWARDS THE SEX SCENE. And also away from the very intense serious dark stuff to lighter, simpler, pure Lily/Severus times. Yes yes yes, I hope. And also the sex scene.


Randomly, I got another plot bunny as I was writing my insane review (my difficulty with having Lily genuinely prefer James to Severus - but what if he damaged her so much she prefers his complete opposite, the fluffy ridiculous manly type? - Oddly enough, yes, the idea of him "damaging her so much" still appeals to me).  *strokes chin*  I may still want to stick to drabble-like, vignettes, or other not really full or serious fics for a while, though.  It's exhausting to tackle the full concept of their relationship, explaining everything from beginning to end with canon.  Much easier, of course, to assume it's all fact from beginning and then just examine certain particulars about it....
