I'm enjoying this. :-)
Wow! This sounds pretty cool! Which is something for me. I dont' even READ James and Lily stories! I've heard of a couple of stories where James and Lily get stuck in each other's bodies, but I haven't read any of them, so I'm looking forward to the next chapter. :-)
This has got to be one of my favourite stories on here. =D It's hilarious. Keep on writing, it's brilliant.
I like your story, it's kind of funny. i like to see you post some more.
AWESOME STORY! I never reviewed before because I was too busy reading. This is definitely going on my favorites. Great characterization!
PLEASE post the next chapter quickly! This is definitely my favorite fanfic!
ahahaha, that was amazing.
I love this story haha. A lot of the romance fan-fics are really corny, but this one is hilarious and cute. Great job!
I'm not usually into this kind of fanfiction, but I really like this. You're a really good writer, and the whole thing is very creative. Update soon! :)

Author's Response: Next chapter is with beta's :D
Excellent update! I've never read a Lily/James or Marauder fic that had anything remotely close to the "trails" you have the Marauders holding in this fic and I love it -- you're an extremely creative author, which is always a good thing! It seems very much like the Marauders to do that, and I love that Lily went ahead and sucked it up, streaking across the school as James. I really liked the conversation between Alice and James as well. There are many different ways of falling in love and I think you did a good jobs describing that. The ending was also very good; it was very touching. I think there's so much J.K. Rowling left untold about Sirius's story, so it's always interesting to me what authors come up with concerning it. I loved what you wrote here, and I loved how you lightened it up at the end with Sirius teasing Lily about her crying. Great job, and I look forward to another interesting update! I can't wait to see how you finally have Lily and James get together and how it all plays out :)
Author's Response: Firstly, sorry for taking so long to respond to your review. I used to be so diligent, but life sort of piled up for a while :)
Thanks for all your compliments, they really drove to the heart of what I was aiming for. The trials - I don't know when I thought of them. Originally, it was going to be all about loyalty, but the running naked just popped into my head! The Alice and James conversation, was never intended. In all honesty, when I planned this story, Alice was something very much like a Mary-Sue. But when I really started writing, she took on a life of her own and I wanted to show that to everyone. As for Sirius- that was in my original plan and I wrote it ages ago. Like you said, I think there is so much more to Sirius, just begging to be explored. As for the ending -- it's nearly here... Hopefully you like it :D
Your story had me laughing so much I had tears streaming down my eyes. Siriusly. I have read so many takes on “How Lily came to love The Arrogant Toe-Rag” but yours is, by far, the most hilarious and innovative. I always felt that both Lily and James had to undergo a thorough study of each other’s personality and lifestyle before falling seriously in love. And you found such a clever solution! I take my hat off to you.
The only complaint I have against your James is that I think he sounds more like the son which Lockhart could have had. Provided he married someone talented. I love James. And I was a little (unpleasantly) shocked to see this exaggerated arrogance and self-love. Ok, canon tells us he was arrogant and big-headed to a certain degree, but I don’t know if it was this much. But you did show his loyal, brave, funny and courageous side. So I am not too angry with you. *Grins*
Only two more chapters? What?! No!!!! I want to read more of this. It is brilliant. (This outburst can be attributed to the fact that I saw your message just now)
Anyway, thanks for such a funny and insightful story. Do keep writing.
Author's Response: Sorry for taking so long to respond to this review, and thanks so much for nominating me for QSQ. :D
I'm glad you like this story. I too had read a lot of James/Lily fictions and I knew there had to be a real change, something in their lives that brought them together. One day this idea just popped into my head.
I didn't mean to portray James as arrogant.
Author's Response: Opps, submitted too early.
Anyway, I didn't mean to portray James as arrogant. The reason he is always looking in mirrors is he likes looking at Lily. Also, he just likes teasing her.
Yes, sadly only two more chapters and one is with my betas. Thanks for the great review and thanks again for nominating this for QSQ :D
Oh wow! As always I really love this chapter of your fic very much.
Actually what makes your fic a hit series is the basic rapport Lily & James share. Its like so beautifully molded that you feel like their reactions are in perfect harmony with each other.
Gosh! I really don't want this story to end.
And Sirius Black is simply astounding. I've always wished that we could have gotten much more insight into him than has been written in the books. He was an extraordinary person and his intial years certainly would express the fact that he was "A Lotus in a Pond".
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. :) Such brilliant compliments, really make me smile. Gah, now I don't want this story to end either.
I agree with your analogy of Sirius Black. He really is a Lotus in a Pond. Maybe one day I will write a fiction, similar to this chapter, totally based on him. But first I must finish this story! Thanks again for the review, and sorry about the wait :)
i liked it!!! please update soon!!!! can't wait for the next chapters.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review :) Update details are now on my authors page.
