Chapter: Sealing Their Fate

Peter is about to become his rat self for real. Suspected the Prewitt's weren't the real deal by the way they just showed up at the door. Figured this was when they had been killed. Molly will be devastated. So who showed up? Dumbledore? Sirius? Remus? All of the above? And third time's the charm.

Author's Response: Yeah, he'll be a complete rat in chapter 87. Wow, that's pretty cool you suspected that because that wasn't the initial plan. I got halfway through the chapter and decided that those were fake Prewitts. Remus definitely didn't show up because of the full moon the night before, but you've got a safe guess with the first two. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Sealing Their Fate

Dun dun dun! There it is, the prophecy is basically set in stone now. I was really surprised you updated so soon! (not that im complaining;) ) Great job!!

Author's Response: Yep, the prophecy is set in motion now. Harry just needs to be born for them to be marked for death. Yeah, I wrote about 6 chapters in the past 2 weeks so my updates will be a little more frequent and I'm anticipating finishing this during my winter break. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Be at Peace

Aw:( That was such a sad chapter. I think everyone feels that way, about knowing death is coming and thinking they'll be prepared and then it happens and they're not. Great job!

Author's Response: Yeah, I don't think anyone is prepared for it, even if they know it's coming. It's not such a slap in the face that it would be if it was sudden, but I don't think it's an easier to take. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: A Compartment For Four

Having lost a spouse, both parents, and, unfortunately many others, I've more familiar with the grief process than I ever wanted to be.

Author's Response: Wow, I'm sorry :(

Chapter: Be at Peace

Beautifully done. No matter how long you've had to prepare, knowing it was coming, steeling yourself against the moment. You're never, ever really prepared. James, Lily, Sirius, Remus, and their other friends are all doing exactly what I would expect in this situation.

Author's Response: Good to know you thought it was realistic. I'm never sure about these kinds of things. James knew it was coming, but he really wasn't prepared. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Worrisome and Joyous

Aw:) I think that has got to be one of, if not the, cutest chapter;) I like how you put James' parents reactions in and how his dad gave him some 'adivce'. Great job!!

Author's Response: Aww, yay! This was a fun chapter to write. I had to put in their reactions, they're so excited to have a grandchild. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Worrisome and Joyous

Really good chapter. James and Lily will indeed make wonderful parents for 15 months. Will they tell Petunia and Vernon? Sirius and Remus are two of the best friends they could have, Alice and Frank are expecting. More love in the world. Glad to see Sirius and Remus wouldn't starve.

Author's Response: They really will make wonderful parents, it's horrible they don't get to live that long to do it. Well, in SS Petunia knows the name of Harry, so they'll find out eventually. Yeah there's lots of love in the world in this chapter. After everything they've been through it's what they need. Ha, no they won't starve. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Can't Always be the Hero

Haha I loved Jame's response to Lily's wonderful news!! Great chapter, well written altercation with the Death Eaters. Really hated Peter in the beginning of the chapter, he really irks me!

Author's Response: I just had to have James faint! His dillemma is that he's so young and he's going to be a dad, hence the faint (and it's the typical male reaction in television and movies). You're going to be really hating Peter at the beginning of chapter 85. He's okay for the next two because he's barely in them, but he gets a section devoted to him in 85 in which he makes his first big step towards the Death Eaters. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Can't Always be the Hero

I like how this chapter had a different kind of layout, with all the different points of view. Hearing from Peter was a definite treat, sure he is not excused from what he will end up doing, but knowing what his thoughts could have been... And the Lily's news is the best kind ever I cant wait to see how James reactes after he wakes or how Remus and Sirius react. Great job!! :D

Author's Response: Yeah there really were a lot of different points of view. You'll be seeing more of Peter's thinking soon and his first real step towards the 'dark side.' James will pretty much be in shock, you'll see more of that in the next chapter. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Can't Always be the Hero

Where to begin? I have been following this story for about 9 months now and just finally became a member of mugglenet--now I can tell you that this is my favorite story! I love the way it's written, full of things both funny and sad.
You make me really feel what the characters are feeling and thinking. I get really wrapped up in the story. You did well with Peter, I felt sorry for him but he is weak and I'll hate when he turns traitor. I love your Lily, and James has just the perfect amount of cheerfulness, luck, and goodness (and a bit of arrogance of course). And Sirius...is Sirius! Nothing more to say! Most of all though, I loved the way you wrote Remus. He's my favorite character to read about. With him especially I felt every bit of pain, humor, and happiness. Keep it up! You Want To Make a Memory is the winner of the QSQ awards in my book!

Author's Response: Wow thanks! That's something that's really important to me when I read - feeling what the characters are - so I try to put that in my writing. Ooh Peter... you do want to feel sorry for him, but trust me, in time you'll just hate him completely. I'm never sure how I write Lily and James so it's great to hear that you like them! Ha, Sirius is just Sirius and that's good enough. Remus is my favorite so he does get a lot of attention. Aww, thanks! Glad you like it!

Chapter: Can't Always be the Hero

If only they had seen that Wormy's realy personality was coming out. That he was really a coward and didn't want to fight anyone unless it was to defend himself. Then they wouldn't have trusted him as Secret Keeper and Voldy wouldn't have attacked, etc. But then there wouldn't have been a Harry Potter series and I wouldn't be reading stories about some of the characters, etc.
Very good chapter. That evil has no limits is reinforced. Bravery and the cost of being brave and doing the right thing.
I'd guess Remus days of employment with Peter might be limited if Peter can find another employee. And I'm sure the DE's would be happy to have another spy among the good guys.
James, of course, reacted exactly as Lily knew he would. It's going to be fun to hear Sirius and Remus tease him about fainting.
That's twice they've defied Voldy. Can't remember what time of year Sybil does the interview and prophecy. They have to defy Voldy one more time before then. Exciting times ahead.

Author's Response: If only they'd seen all that, unfortunately they won't until it's too late. Remus actually won't be fired. Peter's a dirty coward, but he isn't stupid. He knows the hell he would get if he fired Remus. You'll actually see an appearance from the Death Eaters with Peter at the beginning of chapter 85. Sirius and Remus actually haven't teased him... I think it's something James chooses not to share. I don't think it says when Sybill makes the prediction. I looked in OOTP and Dumbledore didn't specify. It's going to be soon though. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Can't Always be the Hero

thats twice they defied the dark lord. good chapter peter's really sliding down the slope to death eater dom, can't wait for the next one.

Author's Response: Yep, that's their second defiance. Their third one will be coming soon, chapter eighty five, I believe. Peter's sliding even further down, it's not going to be long now before he finally becomes a Death Eater. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Until the Death Do Us Part

Awww, nothing like a bit of well-placed fluff to make the heart grow fond of a character. Sirius's words were very in character, IMO, and quite bittersweet, considering that we know how their lives turn out. I thought it was very interesting that the Dursleys showed up, though they most like would not, had the wedding not been in Muggle style.

All in all, the emotions were believable, real, and I'm feeling in a particularly fluffy, cloud 9 mood right now, so kudos for that!

Looking forward to 82!

Author's Response: Yeah, there had to be some nice fluff to balance out what's been happening. That was what I tried to do with Sirius's speech - since we know what happens, but they don't. The Dursleys definitely wouldn't have shown up if it wasn't Muggle style. Well, Petunia may have but Vernon wouldn't. Yay for cloud 9 moods! Chapter 82 may be up today, but I'm not sure. Thanks for reading!

Chapter: Until the Death Do Us Part

Great chapter.
I've been following this story for months now. Sorry for the late review, but this is an amazing take on the marauders era. In fact, this story should be considered for a TV show based on the marauders era. A kind of a Harry Potter spin off (Now I'm reaching).
Every time anyone mentioned the first war during the Harry Potter series I always realized how much the people suffered and how great was their sacrifice. This story really sheds a light on that aspect.
What kind of a life James and Lily wanted. Molly's brothers Fabien and Gideon.
Sirius & Remus's life and most importantly Peter's fall.
Excellent Story. Just one of those you never want to end.
Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: I was actually inspired by a Marauder's fic I read on here 'Between Now and Then' (I highly recommend it), it didn't cover all the years, but it was so amazing it just made me want to write a fic. Wow, now that would be amazing, but would never happen unfortunately... It's really true how much they must have suffered, it has to be like any war in real life. I really wanted to show everyone's different sides in this story - the lives they all wanted and the lives they never got because of the war. Oooh I want it to end... only because I've been writing it for almost three years! Thanks for reading!
