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.
aaaw!!!!!! that is so sweet. and cool. harry...
Author's Response: :)
YAY! gr8 chapter! i loved the trial and sirius' speech was fantastic! i cant wait 4 the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. Next chapter will hopefully be up in about 2ish weeks.
OMG! another amazing chappie!!!!
the beggining was so maraudery!
and i was waiting for something touching like that to happen, since you didn't really portray the depth of their friendship in earlier chapters...
now, to sirius' speech: i thought it was great, although i find it hard to believe sirius would remember everything exactly word for word and it sounded kind of memorised...although you do say he wanted to have that spech for a long time, so maybe it was...
sorry if i'm not making that much sense, it's 5.20 in the morning, i stayed up all night reading your fic! it was SO GOOD!!! well, i'm off to bed.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, sorry for taking so long to reply. I'm glad you found it touching. I think Sirius was totally capable of memorising something that important to him - think of Hermione- and I think James' words meant a lot to him.
I'm glad you stayed up all night reading :D
i like it A LOT!!! but i think it would have been better if Rodger hadn't turned out to be so stupid...after all, lily DID see something in him before, plus, it's kind of what one would expect...but it works for the story, so whatever...
i REALLy like it!!! i wish it were more than 13 chapters, though...
Author's Response: Rodger isn't exactly stupid, he just has a high temper and is a bit possessive. However, Lily didn't see these qualities in Rodger before she went out with him, and she wasn't going out with him for long. But I see your point though. Thanks so much for the review and I'm glad you like it. Only two more chapters to go...
off to add to my faz's!
Author's Response: Thanks :D
wow, i love it!
athogh i must say that the potion having frank appear next to alice isn't really that realistick...well, i mean even for magic...and he could then just fly or use the flu network or whatevr, but whatever, it works for thee story, so...
all right, next chapter, here i come!!!!
Author's Response: The potion isn't really meant for bringing your boyfriend to you, it was originally meant to find your solemate (i.e someone you haven't met yet). Alice only wanted it because she knew Frank was her solemate and he wasn't allowed to visit Hogwarts. Glad you like the story anyway though.
i loved this chapter as usual i can't wait for the next one
Author's Response: :) Thanks
AAAAH! WHERE'S THE NEXT CHAPTER? lol Your story drew me in (unexpectedly, I am ashamed to say,) but now I seriously don't know what I will do without the conclusion! Type, helz_belz, TYPE! :)
Author's Response: Tee hee. Sorry for taking so long to respond to this review. I'm glad I drew you in (even if you didn't suspect it). I promise I'm typing! Only 2000 words to go and I'm finished! (Oh yeah, and I have to update them. Update info is on my profile)
OH, MAN! (or rather please man up - LOL brilliant line!) You never disappoint me. This fic is so good and that chapter was hilarious. I loved the trial - it was so ... so ... Maraudery. Trouble is I'm finding Peter's eventual betrayal of them all even harder to bear because he's a proper Marauder and not a snivelling coward.
I do have some nit picks (sorry).
“No fair! I’m never judge!” whined Peter. I think that should be 'not' - not 'no'.
Urgh, his is so not my type.” Umm, should that be 'he is' and not 'his is'?
But they were just me being very picky because I honestly adore this fic so much (AUDIOFICS...AUDIOFICS... - request it someone).
I can't stop this review without saying how brilliant the last part was. I love the way you slip back into seriousness at the end. Lily is finding out that there is so much more to those four boys than she previously thought and it's great seeing her perceptions change. MARVELLOUS!
Carole xxx (who wants to record this as I think I mentioned last time)
Author's Response: Firstly, Carole, I must apologise for taking sooooo long to reply to this review. Honestly, life just totally go the better of me.
Thanks for the tips, I should go and fix them up soon. Tee hee, I have a feeling someone wants to record this. Well never fear, there is an end in site. And I only have to write about 2000 words before this fic is finished.
I'm glad you liked the last part. I try and slip in some seriousness (and Siriusness) in when I can. Thanks again for your review, can't wait to hear what this sounds like when you record it :D
I know I already left a review, but your story is too hilarious to not drop another! It's creative, funny, and intelligent. I love your "sneak peaks" about the next chapters. You've got quite a talent, and you should definitely write Orsha's Wish, just for fun. :)
Author's Response: Two reviews are always better than one. I'm glad someone likes the sneak peaks, I have fun writing them (often before I write a chapter). Haha, Maybe I should write Orsha's wish. I did steal my sisters name for the authors name though (her first two names anyway)
I absolutly loved this chapter. It was so funny. The whole judge scene was my faveriote. I could see them doing that in real life if they were actuslly real characters. I like how that had different positions that they played. It was great.
I also like how Lily is slowly falling for James. Like how they becaome friends first and have fun with each other. I don't see Lily just falling for him right away and I think you did a great job with that.
I also like what Sirius said at the end. I could see him saying something like that because it's true. The whole part with Regulus was perfect to. That's how i amagined it in my mind.
I absolutly love this story and I cannot wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Alyssa,
Thanks so much for the review. I'm not sure what gave me the idea for the judge scene, but I can imagine them doing that.
I wanted a moment with Sirius, for Lily to see the true depth of their friendship. I'm glad you liked it.
Beautiful. Very funny, too! Can't wait to continue!
Author's Response: Aww thanks. Sorry about the long time to reply. I promise I'm continuing.
Beautiful. Very funny, too! Can't wait to continue!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Sorry for taking so long to reply to this review :)
OMH, OMH, OMH, this fic is my favourite James/Lily EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this fic!
Seriously. I do'nt really read James Lily much, but this has got me HOOKED.
Author's Response: Hey Nadia,
MWHAHA I have converted you. Hehe. Thanks for the review, keep reading.
I loved this chapter! The "geography" lesson was great! And I love the tale about Sirius leaving his folks.
Author's Response: Thanks! That is actually I game my friends and I play, so I thought I'd put it in. I'm glad you liked the Sirius' story :D
totally freeking brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!keep writing.
Author's Response: Thank you, keep reading :D
aww this sstory is soooo cute and clever well done
Author's Response: Thanks :)
Well this is interesting but a bit gross. I mean I really think James would respect privacy of the girls. Though it's really funny. It's all pretty good can't wait to hear more.
Author's Response: Sorry for the long time it took to reply, and the fact that you don't like that it's a bit gross. Do you think James would respect the privacy of girls? Maybe. Most of the guys I know probably wouldn't. I must start hanging around with better behaved guys! I'm glad you like it, keep reading!
