That was cute. We do have to remember that these young men are really normal teenagers and doing the usual teenage boy things. Regulus seems a little whiny. He himself probably didn't try very hard to make friends. Great chapter.
I don't think the four bullies should assume that they're safe from Anne's wrath just because she wasn't there to witness the pebble throwing. When is James going to get the hint that this is no way to attract Lily. It's too bad Severus couldn't borrow his brother's broom for the try-outs. Great chapter.
That last scene was funny. Poor Regulus--I guess he's not the ladies' man his brother is. Severus seems to be jealous of anyone taking time away from Anne. It sounded like news to James that all the girls were after him. Great chapter.
That was a very charming take on how Remus' friends found out he was a werewolf. I thought back to how they really did find out but I can't remember. I think I'll adopt yours as the correct interpretation. I'd like to believe it happened in this way. Great chapter.
I think it was nice of Anne to threaten James. I know that Sirius was a terrible bully but I think I might have had problems resisting him if I went to school with him. It's interesting that Lucius Malfoy still has influence even though he graduated. Great chapter.
It sounds like that besides being related to Severus, Anne can also benefit from his intellect. He can help her with homework and she can give him relationship advice. It will be interesting to read how you write the development of feelings between James and Lily. Great chapter.
I'm at that point in my story too. I need to just move ahead a few months I think. I've been writing for a while and I've only covered four months of time. So, was that a Howler that Bella received? I wonder if that will be the end of booty calls for Lucius:D That sort of publicdisplay seems like something Bella would like. Don't you wish that sometimes Slughorn would just shut up. Great chapter.
I'm glad you explained what Anne's spelll meant or what you wanted it to mean. I'm sure it took a lot for Severus to ask for Anne's help again. Sirius and friends were such bullies that it's good for them when someone stands up to them. Great chapter.
If Anne hasn't cursed James yet, she's sure to do it now. Or maybe she's just letting Severus see what happens when she doesn't watch out for him. This story is so good. I'm glad I discovered you as an author. Great chapter.
Author's Response: I love all your reviews and I'm glad you're enjoying the stories! It's rewarding to know people are reading. This story was actually one of my favorites to write- it took forever!
I think some people are in denial--not wanting to admit their jealousy. I would think Lucius would be a little more careful about offending Narcissa. I would think he'd put her on a pedestal. Great chapter.
I tend to forget that the Mauraders really were bullies and the person they most liked to bully was Snape. Anne is very talented for a first-year. I wonder who taught her all of those nasty hexes. Great chapter.
Eleven-year olds--they're a nasty bunch. I love your Lucius. I would've thought that he'd drag Narcissa up to his bed since it was her 16th birthday but it also makes sense for him to wait. I guess if he wants a bride waiting for him it would be best not to 'sully' her. Great chapter.
It's so fun to see these students as they're younger. You've made them seem like normal kids right now-shy, nervous, trying to fit in. I like that. Everyone portrays Snape as such a loner and you've got him being a little more sociable. Great chapter.
I think you've portrayed the young Slytherins very close to character. I can't wait to learn more about Anne Warlow. It's good to have Severus have a relative at Hogwarts. She sounds like she looks like Lily. Great chapter.
I am loving your latest story about Draco and Hermione so I thought I'd check this one out. So far so good. i can't wait to read more. It promises to be very interesting.
good storyline.....awesome chapters!!!
Now THAT was a gr8 story with an excellent beginning,exciting middle and superb ending!!!!!
This was the first fanfic I ever read, and it is my personal favorite! I cried at the end when Sirius died and saw her, and then Snape was welcomed.
ok that was so good.....
GREAT STORY!! anne warlow is my new favorite hp character! excellent job on this story :]
