I'm already engroced in the story and it's only been three chapters. It really amazes me how different the authors of marauder fics manage to make them. I mean yes they're in seventh year, yes it's usually the time James and Lily get together, yes a certain potions Professor has his favourites, but I still don't get tired of them. The jinx tying Snapes laces together was a good idea, and the chemistry set comment reminded me of something Sirius said in the POA Movie. You've really got the characters perfect too, Remus 'see no evil' Lupin, James 'she will be mine' Potter and Severus 'snarky pants' Snape. I really enjoyed the girls talking under the tree by the lake, such a girly thing to do, we don't see enough of that in Lily sometimes. Can't wait for Chapter 4.
Author's Response: I am so glad you like it. Chapter 4 should be up any day since it is waiting to be validated! I agree about Marauder fics..... I can't just get enough of them!!!!
Ouch I feel sorry for Cate. Sucks to be stuck in a house for 7 years that you hate and do not fit in. Nice introduction of your characters!
I've liked it so far. Keep it up!
Great chapter! This is one of my favourite fics and I'm really looking forward to seeing more, keep it coming!
Not to be annoying...but to correct water_polo_08...James WAS Head Boy in his 7th year, and you do not have to become a prefect to become Head Boy. If you're still unsure, check the HP Lexicon or Mugglenet's HP encyclopedia, I promise you, it's there.
And I enjoy the story :)
Author's Response: That's what I thought too since every Marauder's era fic always had James as Head Boy (at least those I have read). Thanks for letting me know! I'm glad you like it so far!
I really enjoyed it. The marauder era is my abosolute favorite to read and write about and i thought you did a fine job. You did the characters justice and i'm very glad of that! Keep it up.
P.S. i found myself really enjoying the addition of your own characters! I thought it very refreshing!
I think that its a good start. But... James wasnt made Head Boy. When Hagrid said that in the first book he was mistaken. You have to be made prefect to be made Head Boy, and James was never made prefect, Remus was.
I can't really see a Slytherin being such close friends with Gryffindors, but its your story.
Author's Response: I didn't know about James not being Head Boy. The fact that Cate is a Slytherin comes more into play later in the story. There are reasons why she is a Slytherin and also why she doesn't exactly fit in with most of that house. I did want to point out that the story is AU so there are going to be some differences from the HP books, like James being head Boy. Thanks so much for the reivew. The next chapter should be up soon!
Good story! I'm waiting for an update!
Author's Response: Thanks so much!! Chapter 2 should be up soon.
