Sorry that this first chapter isn't very funny, I had to give things a little momentum. I promise, it will get funnier!

I don't think that it is necessary to apologize for your own writing. Readers usually understand that the first chapter is for getting the ball rolling. It is important to capture the reader's attention, but don't apologize for what you feel is what your story needs. :)

The fire was crackling merrily, and a feeling of sleepiness hung in the air over the stone floors, ornate rugs, and squashy armchairs.

I think the second half of this sentence has some unnecessary descriptions. It makes it feel heavy and only adds a small visual. If you leave off the second part, it flows a bit better as: The fire was crackling merrily, and a feeling of sleepiness hung in the air.

It was exactly the sort of evening that the Marauders: James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew, hated.

Some punctuation critique here. The colon doesn't really fit in this sentence; it is used mostly for listing with no further description to follow. It reads better if you would change the colons to dashes, so it would be more like: It was exactly the sort of evening that the Marauders-- James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew-- hated.

I think that your characterization is done quite well. Everyone seems to be in character, and you don't fluctuate in and out of character for the Marauders and Lily like some authors tend to do. The personalities did seem a bit inflated, as if they were bigger than normal, but I can see that you might need that for the sake of humor.

The majority of your story was dialogue, and pretty ambiguously written. It might have been beneficial to add in some more emotions, maybe a bit more than just the occasional blush.

The ending of your chapter was very well done-- it left the reader wanting to come back for more. I love cliffhanger endings!

If you have any questions about my review, please feel free to PM me on the forums at Chaser74.
