Author's Summary:
JK said that, given a second chance, Severus would pick Lily. I'm giving Lily a second chance to pick Severus, instead. AU, of course. Some deaths, too.

Review:
Okay, this starts out iffy - James is ridiculously caricatured and Severus is unpleasant... I put off reading this fic for years because I couldn't get past that introduction/setting-up-the-premise. But stick with it. Once the story gets going, things get much better and the characters level out and get much more believable and it's actually an enjoyable read, especially if you're a fan of any of the genres listed above.  There's a lot of worldbuilding as the story develops and Snape and Lily and their friends get on with their careers and make changes that have a huge impact on the wizarding world and the progression of the plot.  Very good for fans of Lily, especially.
