ok... now that i've read your other two stories, besides Meant To Be, I have a question...

how is it that a 5 chapter story and a one-off can be put up and finished quickly, whereas Meant To Be takes so long between chapters?

Author's Response: Because Meant to Be makes me beat my head against the keyboard repeatedly until I have to be transported to the hospital, where I then have to wait in the emergency room for at least two hours, because you know, hospitals are so very inefficient, and then, the doctors seem to find it necessary to review my sanity and look into temporary or long term care -- at this time case I usually put up a mighty fuss, which generally lasts for around forty-six minutes -- and then, usually, the doctors FINALLY let me go, and you know, it's all a very long and exhasperating process......Stop reading after about the first comma and you get the true story. ;)

this story was very good, how ever i think the ending was a bit rushed.
keep writing your magnificent stories (esp. meant to be *AHEM*) ^_^

Author's Response: The ending was perhaps a tad bit rushed, but I wanted it to end rather abruptly. Thank you for reviewing!

cute . . . but unrealistic. James asked Lily out ALL THE TIME she definitally knew he liked her. Very AU. I think that eliminating that detail undermines every thing about Lily and Jame's relationship. He wasn't a scared sensitive little boy who was afraid to ask his crush out, he was an arrogant git who was head over heels in love and not afraid to ask over and over again. Eventually his head deflated and he asked her the right way. He probably became her friend first, but a cowardly James Potter? No way, no how. Remember what house he's in.

Author's Response: Well, I stated in A/N that it was AU, so I am very aware that it is a tad unrealistic. And I think you may be stereotyping this version of James a little bit. He's not a scared boy, he certainly is bold in many aspects of his life, but I think it's a a tad silly to say that just because someone is Gryffindor they can't be nervous about approaching a girl, nor can they be "sensitive." I never said James was a coward. I do not for a moment think that being nervous about approaching the girl you like makes you a coward. Look at Ron Weasley. You wouldn't call him a coward, would you? But he's certainly having trouble talking to his girl. Anyway, this fiction wasn't intended to be a canon exact interpretation of their relationship, it was merely a fun fiction in which the characters were a little different from usual. Thank you for reviewing. :)

Chapter: Gregory the Smarmy

I'm back no parents to tell me to do anything. Well not yet. Just one last chapter I have a hunch as to what she has seen. So I'm off to the last chapter sadly thought I don't want it to end. -rion

That was a sweet story. I really like how you made it slightly out of canon and made it your own. I especailly loved how you made James seem so strong on the outside but when it came to Lily he was as much of a pansy as everyone else. Good Job!

Fantastic! You're very talented; I'm quite impressed! I think my favorite line was: "Did you just randomly wake up one morning saying, I think Ill learn to be an Animagus today?" That just cracked me up!

Author's Response: Thanks Karalyn! I'm glad you liked it! Hehe, I enjoyed writing that, because I was trying to think of how Lily would react, and I realized that if I found out someone had done something as impressive and crazy as that without so much as a shrug of the shoulder, that would be my reaction. That, accompanied with "What's WRONG with you?" x) Thanks for the review. :)

I loved it! i also liked how you made James less of a snob!

Author's Response: Thank you! I always like to think that James, being my favorite character, was a little less prick-ish than he came off as in OOTP. Thanks for the review! :)

Aw, loved it, so sweet. I wish i was Lily! Yoi're a really great writer, have you got any other lily/james fics coming out?

Author's Response: Thank you! Ahh, I wish I were Lily too. I want a James Potter! (But then I'd be dead, which, I think, would be slightly depressing. Hm.) As for any new lily/james fics, i'm currently on a creative block, but just today, I started contemplating something in regards to this we'll see how that turns out. :)

Beautiful story, Im jealous, why can' that kind of thing happen in real life... to me? I dont mean the magic, but the lovely letters would do.... so beautifully written, I love it...

Author's Response: Hehe, thank you! And I feel the same way...thus writing this was a little depressing at times. I kept thinking, "Why don't I have a Mr. Prongs??" And then I pouted and continued writing. x)

Chapter: Mr. Prongs, indeed.

Just wondering...but didn't Sirius said that James and him were always in detention for pranking?

Author's Response: Yes -- which is why in a way, this story is AU. :)

this is a review for the general story. One word can describe it all. The same word James used to describe Lily. Beautiful. Simply Beautiful. It really is a pitty that you arent making a sequel, but then I really cant think of a plot. Anyways, it was a great story. I give it a 10

Author's Response: Thank you so much! :) I'm so glad you liked it! I've thought long and hard about making a sequel, simply because this story was so much fun to write, but I, like you, cannot think of a plot. : Thanks for the review!
