Chapter: Chapter Four: All Sorted Out

I really liked the song!! How did you come up with it?? I think that it was even better than the one in the books. Another good thing that you did was haveing that fith Gryffendor boy, alote of storys tend to only have the maurders as the Greyffendors, when really the was most likely another boy. Can't wait for the next chapter, good job with the deatiles!!

Author's Response: Thanks again for another great review! To write the song, I really studied the songs she's published so far, wrote down the traits of each House, etc., and then just kind of ran with it from there. It took a while to get everything right, so I'm glad you like it! And yes, it always bugs me when stories only have four Gryffindor boys, since there is no evidence for that at all. Granted, I suppose the same could be said about having five boys, but I like Janus, so he's staying in the story! Thanks again for the nomination, too! I don't know if it was approved (I don't know the nomination process very well), but the gesture absolutely made my day!!!

Chapter: Chapter Four: All Sorted Out

Okay, I have not actully read this chapter yet because I was talking a breack from fan fiction, but I just wanted to let you know that I just got done nominated you!! I hope that the mods aprove it...but if they dont here is what I said:

Story Title: Of Cauldrons and Comrades
Author: LuthAn
Category: Mauder era
Link to Story on MNFF:
Reason for Nomination:

First I would like to show one of the opening scenes, the scene that really caught my attention:

As the silvery surface twinkled and shimmered Dumbledore withdrew his wand from his sleeve. He aimed it at the Pensieve’s liquid depths and twitched his arm upwards. Ten ghostly figures slowly emerged from the liquid, their bodies spun out of the translucent matter. The Gryffindor Class of 1978.

For, Dumbledore had come to realize as the losses sank in, this class had suffered more than any from Hogwarts in recent memory. The Class of 1978 as a whole had been absolutely torn asunder, it was true. They, more so than any other class at Hogwarts had truly felt the rise of Lord Voldemort. The Class of 1978 had produced heroes, had produced villains, all because they had the misfortune of being of the precise age that Lord Voldemort desired of his followers–and his victims.

I fell in love with the story, I love every thing about it. I Love how the author has more descriptions than talking and how you look at not only the small pitcher, but the big one to. The Auther had written this story with such emotions that I can't even describe it, it is wonderful to read and I'm very proud to nominate it.

Author's Response: Oh my goodness! I am touched beyond belief! Truly honored, really! I've never been nominated for a fiction award! If I type any more sentences, I will wear out the exclamation point key on my keyboard!!! :-) It makes me incredibly happy that you enjoy this story so much. Thank you again and again for the nomination, even if it doesn't get approved.

Chapter: Chapter Three: Barriers

HEHE this beganning of this chappie was so funny!! the hole dream thing was funny and i LOVED this part: “My! Well you’ve certainly thought that one through. But don’t be silly, Lily–oh! A rhyme! How funny! … oh, what was I saying? Oh yes, you certainly won’t fall on the rocks, because you’re the best swimmer I know!”

Lily was about to tell her mother that she had completely missed the point, but then decided against it. It was better left to mull around in her own head." I liked how you compered the dark wiziards with Hitler...very good medifor...I also love how good you are at deatiles. Some of your chapters are kinda long, but this one was perfect lenght. The other chapters could have been broken in half thought (i like long chappies personitly, but alote of other people don't) thanks for updated so fast!!

Author's Response: Thanks very much, as always, for the review! I'm glad you liked the dream. I like to think that Lily and James didn't just hate each other automatically.... Most of the chapters will be this length. The last chapter was very long, and there is another really long one (Chapter 13, I think), but I will try to split them up in the future. But yeah, they will generally be about as long as this one. Thanks again, and I'll put the next chapter in the queue tomorrow!

Chapter: Chapter Two: New Friends, Old Foes

Very good! I'm sorry that it took me a while to reveiw...any way I liked this chapter and how you changed the POV. But what about Peter? I hope that we will get to here about him to. I really liked it when Viliot thought that Tom said Muggers..hehehe..and I liked the part with Peatunia.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I had a lot of fun writing this chapter; I like switching back and forth between the characters. Peter will show up in the next chapter, with a suspicious group of people, it turns out...

Chapter: Chapter One: Beginnings

Wow...this is diffently one of the best fics I have ever read...mabey even the best. I loved how you switched betwenn the charcters, ecspecily the swich between james and sirius. This srory is very good and has left me wondering. I'm very curiose about many things manly this:But, on the other hand, my dear,” said Douglas, casting a nervous glance at his son and lowering his voice, “It is entirely possible that staying at Sudbury will remind him of... Of... Well, of...” He was unable to finish his sentence, and Frances saw that tears were gathering in his already watery eyes.

“Of Nora and of Elaine?” Her husband nodded. “Yes, that is true, I suppose. But sending him away will only increase his homesickness and will no doubt trigger unhappy memories, Douglas.” I really want to know how Nora died...but i suppose i will find out. keep it up!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for such a great compliment! I am very glad you like the fic. :) Yes, I have spent a great deal of time thinking about Peter's backstory. All will be revealed in due time... ;)

Chapter: Chapter One: Beginnings

This is a great premise for a story!! My only issue is that James was a chaser not a seeker (they have that in the movie but in the book he is a chaser!). But maybe he had abilities as both and was chosen as a chaser! Anyway, I look forward to future chapters!

Author's Response: Thanks very much, Christina! I'm glad you like it. About the Seeker/Chaser thing, good eye for pointing that out, but keep reading. Maybe James doesn't get exactly what he wants... ;)

Chapter: Prologue

Wow... Where are you going with this story by the way?
It's a great story. I really like it. It's well written and it flows naturally.

As I see it, you can go two ways with this, (of course you already know where you're going with it, but bear with me) you can go back in time or stay in the present. Either way, your reader isn't confused. I think, therein lies one of your greatest strenghts with this story. You can tell your reader almost anything, and still have it look believable.

I like your subtle cliffhanger. As a reader, you think where is she going with this? You want to come back to read the next chapter just to see where you're going with it. You have your reader in the palm of your hand...

Great work, really great.


Author's Response: Thank you very much! I appreciate your comments, because they validate the way I will take the story. Chapter One takes us all the way back to their first year, and continues from there. But there will be a few surprises and jumps in time, so I hope everyone can keep up. :) I've submitted the next chapter, so keep your eyes peeled! Thanks again!
