Chapter: Friends Like These (Part 1)

Honestly, I couldn't give a darn about that much action becuase I like reading about personal relationships as well. I read a lot of Jane Austen and there's not a lot of action going it really doesn't bother me as long as I can watch characters and relationships develop. You learn a lot more that way than a lot of action going on because I think it distracts from the main plotlines a lot of times. ANyway, that's my opinion. I mean, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, but it's hard for people to really make good, realistic relationships with people whether they're going for platonic, familial or romantic. Bottom line: I don't care if there's a lot of action I'm much more interested in Lindi's reaction to Remus's "furry little problem"

Author's Response: Thank you, ren_a87. I do hope that the relationships I'm trying to flesh out seem realistic. That is the whole point of this little tale. ;) I do sometimes worry that I take far too long to get to the action, whether it is a big action sequence or the first kiss, but I enjoy the building more than the payoff. I suppose I should realize that you and my readers in general would have to prefer the relationshipy part as well, or you wouldn't still be here after all this time. I certainly haven't hooked anyone with all the action! LOL I hope that you are satisfied when Lindi finds out the truth, after the long, long wait. That is assuming she does. <.<

Chapter: Friends Like These (Part 1)

Wow, I have just finished this story. I actually reviewed a couple of days ago, but doesn't seem to have come up.
Anyhoo this story is so well written. I love reading fics about the Marauders. And you've written Moony just like he should be. Out of the four of them he probably did have the worst time dating due to his furry little problem.
I especially like Lindi, she's not just a one dimensional character, there is actually more to her than meets the eye.
Anyway, great work, I'll be keeping a beady eye out for the next chapter. I am dying to know what James is going to do to Lindi. So hurry up!

Author's Response: Thank you for this wonderful review, Phoenix alThor. I am especially pleased that you like Lindi. :D That really gives me a kick. I'm working on the next chapter as we speak (well, taking a little break now, but...) I hope you enjoy it when I'm finished. Hurry up...LOL Have I mentioned lately that I'm a southern girl. We don't know how to hurry. LOL I will try. Thank you again. :)

Wow, I almost gave up hope on this story. I'm REALLY glad you updated, though. I hope to see the next chapter (or, rather, the rest of this chapter) soon!

Author's Response: *blush* I almost gave up on it too! I'm really glad you didn't. Thank you for sticking with me and reviewing. I really appreciate it, I Am Peeves.

Note to all who get notified of my updates. I had a terrible time getting this chapter posted because of the glitches created by the Hacker. I have learned that you probably received a ton of update notice emails. Sorry about that. The site wasn't updating the story properly, so I was surprised to find out that it was sending out the emails. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Not enough time with the Marauders these days to keep in practice, I guess. I need to work on that. I'll try to have an update for you soon. Thank you for reviewing, Marauder Evans.

Chapter: Friends Like These (Part 1)

Another good chapter! I thought it had a good amout of action even if it was just for the competitions, you can't have every chapter packed! Anyway, it is a bit cruel of you to leave Lindi's "punishment" to the next chapter! But I guess as you have it almost finished, I'll forgive you this once! Just kidding, hope it's as good as this one!

Author's Response: Thank you, ren_a87. I know what you mean about the action. I'm afraid action isn't one of my strengths, as I enjoy writing more personal interaction than anything. Still, action is necessary, unfortunately! LOL Lindi thinks it is cruel to make her wait too! I'll try to let her and you get it over with soon. I actually hope the next one is better, but I'm not particularly optimistic as it is still part of the chapter from h*** for me, but I really appreciate your kind words. Thank you for reviewing. :)

i am sweet sixteen just like lindi (i wrote a review in that chapter lol)
i think it came out when i was only fourteen, wow

Author's Response: Your quite welcome, now may I ask what on earth you were doing reading a 6th-7th year fic at fourteen, young lady? *waggles finger in very Molly Weasley fashion*

*removes Molly's apron and puts on Rita Skeeter glasses and whips out Quick Quotes Quill* So, it was your sweet sixteen. Did the little birdies get to sing "Sweet Sixteen, MoB's dear pet, Never been kissed by a little boy yet" or simply Happy Birthday? Prophet readers want to know! LOL /teasing froggie] I'm glad to know you've stuck with me all this time. We crazy's need to stick together.

Chapter: Shining Light in the Growing Darkness

I'm sorry but are you trying to subject your loyal fans to a cruel and agonizing death? We need more MOB!

Author's Response: *hides*

Okay, here's the deal. I'm having a really hard time with this one. Not because it is a particularly complex chapter or anything (that's the next one. ) <.< /teasing MoB readers] but because I keep getting interrupted when I try to write it. And now, it has taken so long, I can't seem to get into it. However, I have sent the lion's share of it (almost 10000 words worth) to Marauderswolf for a basic betaing so I could get some feedback that might help me refocus. I have been in contact with her and she's helped me do that. I'm working on it right now (well when I finish here.;) ) I hope to get the rewrite of the first half to her this weekend. The chapter is going to have to be posted in two parts due to length. Depending on how the beta goes, I may or may not post it all at once. If not, it shouldn't be a long wait between the first and second halves. Now, when I will have anything to actually post is anyone's guess, but I feel like I'm getting close. I only wish there was more substance/action/excitement in the chapter since you have been waiting so long. I hope to make up for that in the next chapter. *more shameless teasing* Okay. That probably made no sense at all, so, long story short. I'm getting close.

I am so sorry for the very long wait. :*( Thank you for your patience and encouragement. I needed it. A lot! :)

Author's Response: Oh, and Happy Birthday, froggie! I'm sorry I don't have anything for you, but I send best wishes! Hope it's been great!

This is an a amazing story! 47 Chapters is briliant! omg i soo cant wait for the competition! woo lol Great Story please keep up the great work!

Author's Response: Thank you so much, liss8493. I'm glad to know you are enjoying it. I might argue with you about the 47 chapters being brilliant. I'm really thinking it is insanity! LOL But thank you so much. I will definitely try. :)

FYI to readers: I've broken the 10,000 word limit for chapters on MNFF with the current chapter, and it still isn't finished. >.< So, you may end up with two smaller chapters as I've had to do before, or my beta, *waves at Marauderswolf* might hack out a lot of rubbish and get it back in line with the site chapter limit. Of course, if I don't finish the darn thing, she won't have a chance to cut it with the big red pen. *sigh* *goes off to try to wrestle bad chapter into submission*

I'm having such a hard time getting through this chapter. I wish I could just skip it and move on to the next one. Thank you for reviewing, iluvkrum. I hope I update soon too. >.<

hey there thanks for responding to the review. now i know you are still alive. or that you didn't get abducted by aliens or move to the rainforest where they don't have computers.

i feel so bad that you are frustrated, but just know that we love this story a lot.
if you can't have it out by christmas, it can be my birthday present, which is ten days after.

your loyal reader

Author's Response: Hi, froggie, actually, I like the abducted by aliens thing. I might start using it as an excuse for why I still haven't finished this blasted chapter. :( Now, I'll shoot for your birthday. If I miss my target, have a very Happy Birthday! Thank you for this nice post. :)

Author's Response: *hides from froggie* I know! It is nuts, but it has only been a little over 2 months. <.< *dies of shame* I wish I could tell you it is because I'm working so hard on making the chapter excellent, but in truth, I'm not getting any time to work on it at all. *blames Real Life* Well, very little and very sporadic, which is a bad way for me to work. I end up getting all out of focus and...bleh! It is giving me trouble, but I promise, I'm not giving up. I wouldn't do that to my loyal fans. :*) My goal is a chapter by Christmas, but no promises, other than the one to keep trying. I am so sorry to keep you waiting so long. Thank you for your encouragement. I need some poking when I start feeling so frustrated about it all. It helps to know you are out there and that you'll be mad if I just give up. *scared* Thanks, froggie. <3

Chapter: Shining Light in the Growing Darkness

I have just read through this story for the third time. You do have quite a flair for writing. I have read several different fanfictions, and there is only one other author that I have enjoyed nearly as much as this story.

Your description of the marauders, their personalities, their way of teasing others, their fierce loyalty, their frequent tussles with the Slytherins, are all believable based on JK Rowling's work. It is infrequent that I feel an author can draw their readers into a relationship with a character that has an incredibly believable personality, has recognizable motives for their actions, and cute quirks. I love the way you have expounded all the characters in this fic. Well done. Lindi is adorably neurotic and Remus is everything I would have wanted him to be written like. He is exactly as I pictured him in younger years (despite that bit of idiocy with Celia, but I completely believed it could have happened, I was just upset with him for doing it...) But he is expertly written in my opinion, very loyal, very thoughtful, and even the way he is haunted by lycanthropy and the way he relates to his parents. I can't praise his character development enough.

Let me encourage you, please don't give up writing this piece... if only because we enjoy it! But it is a very good bit of writing and showcases your talent well. I would not be surprised at all if you had a career in it.

Oh, and I love how each of the marauders is so different, you haven't lumped any of them together. You've showed their personalities and their maturing in their own ways, again excellent.

Thank you for sharing and please keep writing!

Author's Response: *rereads fabulous review* Thank you so much, readingislife. This is one of those reviews that nearly leaves me speechless, and makes me want to quit before I really blow it (especially when I am hating the chapter I'm working on. >.<) I won't, of course, even though it may seem that I have. :*( Thank you, thank you! for the wonderful comments on my story and my writing, particularly the characterization. I am so glad you have enjoyed it and I will try my best not to disappoint you (TRY being the key word.) *prints out lovely review for motivation* Thank you again, readinislife.
