I'm here for our review swap and always a joy to be here too! So I had trouble picking something from your page but I decided on this because I thought the pairing was interesting. I haven't seen a lot of Emmeline before so I wanted to see what you did with her.
So, I enjoyed seeing 'that night' or the effect of it from another point of view, it's really interesting. So you open with them waking up like normal, you really set up a good background for their relationship so you get the sense of who they are as couple. I love the strong but dreamy character that you've created for Emmeline. She's so thoughtful which I really like about her.
There are lots of lines that I really enjoyed but I really liked "Which means you just spent an exuberant amount of money on sweets for James." - I just loved this because it feels just funny and slightly childish which is really good contrast to the rest of the story. I just liked it because it seems very much like marauder-que like they're big kids. OMG, I adore baby Harry with the Marauders and James as a parent, I love the fluff but it makes me so sad though. why doesn't this have a happy ending?!
The last bit is heartbreaking but you write it so well, the thought process and the way which she reacts. I think this last bit is when Emmeline's character really comes alive and the strength she has is stunning. The end two sentences of this one-shot are perfection, I love the ending as a slightly hopeful one? you have a beautiful way of writing, there is always so much emotion in what you do which is such a credit to you. I loved this and I'm glad that I picked this one because it's been a fantastic read.
