    Bouquets

    Bouquets by ShootingStar

    Summary: She still has the dried rose bouquets he sent her, you know. Back when he pursued her eagerly, happily, when he fed her corny pickup lines and tickled her at every opportunity. She never did throw the flowers out. She doesn’t know why. Oneshot, 1,258 Words.

    Why You Should Care: ShootingStar really strikes a nerve here. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, she says, and I found myself with unexpected tears in my eyes. It’s Lily/James as it probably did happen; it’s not cliched, it’s realistic. Cleverly structured, using moments and memories, this is Lily’s maturity as she realizes just what she missed. And by including a moment of sweetness at the end, the author avoids this being pure angst and gives a message of hope.

    Why You Might Not Care: Because you’re heartless. This is adorable in a tear-jerking kind of way.

      I AM GLAD IT DIDN’T HAPPEN THIS WAY. So glad that I feel like choking the author for even suggesting it. It didn’t happen this way. Thank God, JKR. =]
