    Summary: Voldemort is dead. James Potter killed him. But Voldemort killed James, and Harry fulfilled the Prophecy. Confused? Well, it’s all in perception anyway. HPLEP, sort of HPGW and JPLEP. Oneshot, short.

    What if Lily Evans looked exactly like Ginny Weasley? Searching through Lady Salazar's fics, I came upon this short, nice one-shot (takes 2 minutes to read). A haunting twist of the saying, "Potters always love redheads."

    Well i liked it, it's not an original idea but the execution was refreshing. Only problem with her fic it's that it's way too short. If you look at her other stories you will found the same problem.

    I give it a 4/5

    Your closet. Please clean it, I can't move.
    Very, very interesting. And very unique, I rather like it. 4/5 from me. I especially like how she twisted two cliches at once to do this, time travel and the 'Potters love redheads' thing.

    Short and disturbing as hell. I don't think I will ever be able to look at H/G without this popping into mind... A bit on the short side, but the psychology in it sends a screwdriver through your brain. Harry and Lily both are entirely too fucked up in the head, but yet are pratically Canon in their actions. Take that, Ginslut fans!

    Deeply disturbing twist.

    4/5

    Trippyish, but not most trippy hp fanfiction, it's not even really a logic tickler, but 3/5 for the effort.

    This did nothing for me. A few grammar errors and typoes, but I never care much about those. Short little drabble that just raises the idea of Harry going back in time and replacing his dad. Not enough happens to care about any of these people and really reading the summary is as interesting and thought-provoking as reading the fic.

    There's nothing wrong with this, but not enough for me to recommend others to read it.

    2/5 for simply pointlessness in spite of acceptable grammar and style.

    A half-hearted peak into a twisted affair, misplaced in this section and also the library. Prose, passable, peppered with personification by capitalization and purple idioms for passing (away), and not skilled enough to have substance in brevity. Of merit, this glimpse of character—Lily "forsaking logic" with acceptance of magic. But written to shock, and shock in this fandom is spit on the groinsaw of HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, and slain.

    An interesting view into a truly twisted affair between 'James' and 'Ginny'. I wouldn't give it any awards, but for a story slightly over a thousand words, it kept my interest well enough. I would note that there are some grammatical errors and it's written more for shock and awe than plot and substance.

    3/5 Passable. Not something I would recommend unless you need something to pass the time.
