LOVE IT! I love the relationship for Moony, as well as the Love/Hate of James and Lily. Can't get enough of how you write these people. I think J.K. herself would be proud of how you write them!

Author's Response: thank youuuuuu

Chapter: Chapter 16 - 'Feeble Girls'

So, James met Fabian, not the Indian exchange student, did he? Hmph. :P

Anyway, I love how the Soule Subplot is turning around. He's not all nice now, is he? *grins*

I want to say more, but haha! I'd be simply repetitive. This story is just fantastic and I don't think I have followed any other unfinished fic this religiously.


Author's Response: Thank you. Poor Rich, what has everyone got against him. *winks*. Umm, yeah sorry the Indian exchange student got ... um ... lost. Perhaps she's in the Forbidden Forest somewhere ...

Chapter: Chapter 15 - Hogsmeade

Giving Remus a more or less illegal potion may not be the best idea James ever had. But if it works to keep Mary from asking more questions. And why is Peter trying to get closer to Lily? Sonia making a play for James? That's not going anywhere. And look who showed up. The American the girls met on their trip.

Chapter: Chapter 14 - Cold Light of Day

Lots of interesting stuff. The Priori Incantatum didn't tell them a whole lot. Just that the owner had done a Stunning Spell and made a bouquet of orchids. Maybe the orchids weren't meant as a present but something bad? Lily's trying to stop the Maruader's from finding out it was Snape who took James broom, and Snape wants to cause trouble and humiliation, mostly for Remus. Speaking of whom, he's going to have to make a decision soon about what to tell her. He's running out of reasonable excuses, and Mary's not stupid. Even Lily is starting to question things a little more closely. Seems like everything is getting a little more complicated. And wonder how Prof Prewitt feels about Remus the werewolf?

Author's Response: Thanks for the review ~Carole~

Chapter: Chapter 15 - Hogsmeade

I think that is the best cliff hanger that I have ever read. I was so excited to read how James goes about asking Lily. But wait! It didn't happen. As much as I wanted to read Lily's reaction, I think this ending is better. If you haven't noticed, this ending, to me, is freaking awesome. :P

Another thing that I love is the characterization. I'm sure you get this a lot, but your characterization... it's just too good for words. It's funny when it needs to be, it's serious, it's so gosh darn believable.

The way you write Sirius just blows my mind. He is funny and nice at the same time! This is by far the best Sirius that I've read. The way he acts with Regulus is something that I've never read before. I like how they are kind of civil towards each other. I will always love a good Black on Black fight, but this is great too.

I like how Remus swears. Being a teenager, he is bound to swear.

I love how James has some self control on asking Lily out. It's refreshing to read a story like that.

Lily is great too. She's calm but she still has that pazazz to her.

But my favorite part was the ending! You didn't go in to a lot of detail, but it was just enough to keep me satisfied. Well, not satisfied, but it gave me just enough information to let me know what is going to happen soon without giving too much away.

This story is also good because I think I might have skipped a few chapters, but I still know what's going on. :P

The plot is yet another thing that I love. In the begining of the story I was a little ify on it, but then I knew right away that this story would be great.

Towards the end of this chapter when James asked if the new bartender was cute (hot?) , I had a feeling that it would be a guy, but I didn't think that it would be this dude (I forget his name >.

Author's Response: OOOH, thank yopu so much for the indepth review and I'm glad you're enjoying it. hmm, plot ... yes I remember that. Yes, there's definitely a plot that isn't just about Matauder pranks and Lily/James will they won't they, it just takes a bit more pulling together. Richard Soule ... or Rich is the barman's name. Poor James ... he might just have got his date with her if Rich wasn't around. Thank you again ~Carole~

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. I do love writing this story, so I won't stop (well not for another few chapters as I have to get them to the end of Hogwarts) I will try and hurry, but real life and a few other writing projects keep slowing me down. thanks again. ~Carole~

Chapter: Chapter 14 - Cold Light of Day

Brilliant. I enjoyed reading this story for the QSQs, and when I saw that you had a new chapter up, I've read through it again, and I still think it's one of the best Marauder' fics I've read.

I love how you've made all of your characters believable, OC or canon. Your plotline is also original, which is more than a can say for a lot of fics. I've only noticed minor grammar errors, maybe one or two per several chapters, which we can, of course, credit a remarkable job to the fantastic betas. :) Also, I'm not sure if it's a mistake or I'm just being overaware, but it seems as if you're missing a lot of commas, like in dialogue. Like in the last line for this chapter, after 'Mary Macdonald' I would have used a comma. It may just be something I'm very used to, but it will distract me from the dialogue when it does occur. Mess up the flow? I'm not sure what word I'm looking for here.

I will be watching for your next update, and I hope you enjoy writing this as much as I liked reading it.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review and the praise. I'm glad you're enjoying the story and that you've been re-reading it. I shall check through the missing commas again. I do have a beta (or two) but sometimes between the three of us we miss things. *sigh*. Thanks again ~Carole~

Great chapter!

I liked your characterization - how James wanted Peter to stay, but then still told Mary the truth, well part of it, when it looked really bad for his friend. Oh, and Remus at the beginning, how he wanted to walk by himself...

I do have some nitpicks, if you're interested :p
You have some missing spaces at these places:
wand?”Both Peter and

and here you need a "
“Priori Incantato! he

I hope you update soon!
