The idea of this story is very creative! It's a different approach to the whole James/Lily relationship, in a good way. :)

It might have been better to begin the story a little more in depth, as you start it off with dialog that seems like it would belong more in the middle of the chapter, given the way it's written. It takes a bit of reading to figure out what's going on.

Just a suggestion.... I would re-write this part:

He hated to break the rules in McGonagall’s class, because she was downright scary when she was mad, but since this was to help James, he was forcing himself to overcome his nervousness.

...and maybe make it more like this:

He hated to break the rules in McGonagall’s class, mainly because she was downright scary when she was mad. But, since this was to help James, he was forcing himself to overcome his nervousness and do what he had to do.

^ Just a suggestion, obviously doesn't have to follow through with it, but I think it sounds more smooth, where as when I originally read it I had to do a bit of a double read.

The Marauders bent their heads as Sirius quickly went over the assignments. Then the bell rang and they went into class.

This part sounds a bit plain. I would reword it slightly to make the sentence fluency not so choppy, and it will be much easier to read.

I like the way Remus wrote the letter. It doesn't necessarily sound like James, but then again, that's part of the point. :) Either way, it gets the point across, and it really does make him sound like a nice guy!

I'm excited to see where this story is going...you've got a good start already and I'm looking forward to seeing what Lily will do with the letter. :) Good job!

This is an interesting start. I'm curious to see where you take it. I like the idea of a letter trail, but I do hope that James takes over the letters and it isn't Remus and Sirius the whole time.

I'll definitely keep an eye out for the next chapter!

I found one mistake:
"Much better then mine!”
'Then' should be 'than'.

Author's Response: James will take over the letters soon, I promise. Thanks so much for reading my story! Kate

Ooh, this sounds fun! I can't wait to see how this plays out - a very unique idea, it should be interesting to see if Lily decideds to write back, and what happens if she does =) Keep writing!
