Loved the chapter. Please update soon.
Author's Response: Thank you! This is the final chap of Semi Charmed Life, but the Sirius and Rosmerta on holiday one shot A Charmed Life will post soon!
I love the way you never exclude Peter!! Some authors hate Peter so much for what he did when he was older that they take it out on Younger Peter, but you never do! Keep up the AMAZING work! Sorry to hear it's only going to be three chapters, and don't worry, this is a VERY enjoyable story.
Author's Response: Thank you! If Sirius trusted Peter to be James' secret keeper, I think that proves that he probably kept some major secrets for Sirius prior to that (non-Marauder related, lol) and he was loved like a brother to be hated so violently afterwards. I'm glad that you liked the fact that I didn't have him left behind in the library, studying, throughout the story! Chapter 30 is the last one for the story, but there will be two one shots after that I think you'll really like!
Yay! They declared their love! Hooray! It was adorable, I hope you know. And evil slimy Lucius...evil and slimy...superbly evil and slimy...ah well, I think you have th greatest sense of humor ever devised.
Author's Response: Got to have a bad guy to make the hero look even better! :D Thank you so much, kind drinka of Gin. I tip my hat. (a Robin Hood one, with a perky feather)
haha Love it! Update soon please please pleaseee!
Author's Response: Merci, ma bella loonyluna! =]
I tried imagining the beginning scene to this chapter so many times when I was bored on my trip to Cincinnati. I got it all right except that she said it first. I totally had him doing it everytime. I'm glad she didn't freak out about the dog-thing... although, she knew the man and the dog, unlike Cami.
Author's Response: Exactly! In the R/T stories, Cami had a bit of a handicap, not knowing Sirius at the same time as Snuffles. :D I'm glad that it was a surprise that she said it first! I really think Sirius needed one person in his life to say I love you first. Sigh.
Good! I love the way you portray Sirius. Update soon. Pleeeaaaaseeee!
Author's Response: That's such a great compliment. Muchas Gracias!
Mine, he thought, tracing her curves with his fingertips.
That line had me cracking up! I had a mental image of little kids stealing toys and screaming "MINE!" :)
The only criticism I have about this chapter is about the Imperius Curse. If Rosmerta could overcome the curse in her twenties, how could she not overcome it in Harry's time? Remember, she was under the spell in the sixth book...
Besides that, congrats on another amazing chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you! =] From what I understand about the curse, it depends on what the person under the curse is told to do. Like people who are hypnotized that break out of it the moment they're asked to do something out of character. If the person under the Imperius is told to do something, and it's against their character, (like kiss someone they don't want to!) they can find the strength to break free. In the other situation, Rosmerta was told to give something...that's not against her nature...she is giving...so she wasn't able to break free.
Fabulous as always, and I was very happy to see that this chapter was longer than the last one! I jumped and clapped for joy! Also, I applaud Rosmerta for throwing off the Imperius Curse! Well, write quickly! I am obsessed with this story! ♥
Author's Response: Thank you so much! There's only one more chapter and then a couple of one-shots. One takes place after school....very fluffy...and the other takes place after Azkaban...bittersweet fluff that I hope makes you teary and happy at the same time! I'll have the last chapter up soon!
“Hold on,” Peter said. “You blokes kiss girls’ ears? And they like it?”
Author's Response: Is that...you love being kissed on the ear...or you love the story...or both? :D You don't have to answer, heh, I have warped humour.
Oooh, another exciting chapter, I do say! I loved the "ROSMERTA!" at the end ... it was very dramatic.
Poor Sirius. I do feel bad for him. He's got such a twisted past ... Anyway, I look forward to the rest of this fic. And those one shots, too. :D Good job!
Author's Response: Sirius = drama, doesn't he? Gotta love him...I think it's in the guidelines. Must not submit fics to more than one cat, must love Sirius. :D
I really like your portrayal of peter in this-he seems so much more like a friend, as opposed to a future murderer. It makes me like him-in a really weird way.
Author's Response: Thank you for putting it like that- that's how I feel too. :D He had to be more than a self-centred future murderer or Sirius wouldn't have trusted him, so I had to find a way to like him too.
terrible sad... only thing I've ever read where I like peter.
Author's Response: I was so tempted to write him greasy and nasty, but would Sirius have really loved a guy like that as a brother? Trusted him with his and James, Lily, and Harry's life?
I'm torn! I don't know if I want you to finish or to just keep going and going and going...It's fantastic!
Author's Response: Aw, that's such a compliment. I'm going to sit here and appreciate it. Thanks! ^_^
Awesome chapter!!! It was so emotional!! Btw this is the first time I've reviewed your story, but I've been reading it all along and it's great!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much for reviewing to say that! Without deep emotions, characters don't feel 'real' and I want them to be real. *happy sigh*
Only a few more chapters? Aww! This is one of my all time favourite! Grr! Hehe! At least there is the one shots to look forward to! :] ♥
Author's Response: Ever thought about reading Tonks and Remus? Draco and Ginny? I'm eclectic with my pairings and would love to get you hooked on another romance (both Moonlight and Shadow and A Tale of Two Matchmakers won't be ending soon, either! ^_~
“I’m good at not being caught.”
Oh. My. God.
What's up with Peter? What's he planning? I mean, we all know what he's planning, but....you know what I mean. :O
On a different note, I wish Sirius and Rosmerta would just say they love each other already! I mean, it's pretty darn obvious! Urgh, they're just too stubburn!
Once again, we begin to see why Sirius doesn't trust Remus, and why he ends up thinking he's the Death Eater in the group.
Keep up the amazing work!
Author's Response: Nothing much is up with Peter...now...I was just trying to show a little of his character that will worsen with time....same with Sirius' suspicions about Remus. Sirius and Rosmerta are stubborn, but I think you'll like how things resolve next chap! =]
Wow, I really like your story! :) The thing that really struck me though, was how Peter said he would be Sirius' 'secret keeper'. It made me think about why Sirius asked James and Lily to switch their secret keeper to Peter in the not so distant future. It makes sense, according to what's happened so far in your fic, that Peter had kept secrets for Sirius before, so of course Sirius would trust him again. And since Remus told Peter about Rosmerta, it makes sense that Sirius wouldn't trust him as much in the future...Now you've really got me thinking...
Anyways, I can't wait for an update! I love this story and I can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: Yay, you thought James and Lily when you read that! *does happy dance* I didn't want to go heavy-handed on the foreshadowing, but I couldn't resist, so you made me smile. :)
*sniff* Holy crap. You nearly had me crying in this chapter. Oh gosh! Oh come next update, come! You're needed! For now, I'll just have to make up the ending in my head. Hmm. That will make for an interesting fantasy.
Author's Response: Feel free to make up an ending...then you can see how close you came! :D There are still a couple of chapters left in this story, so a lot can happen. ^_~
as always a brilliant story n a totally great chapter
Author's Response: Merci beaucoup and in every language thank you! =]
I really enjoyed that chapter. I just wanted to give Sirius a big hug when he realized he wanted to hear 'i love u' first b/c he never had! glad to hear there will be some one shots after the story is done! update soon! oh and I like how it was Peter who went to see how Sirius was.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that it was Peter. If he had been an Iago, all bad, no WAY would he and Sirius been so close and Sirius had to have loved him like a brother to hate him so fiercely after the betrayal! I say we all hug Sirius! ^_^
