I really like the way you characterized James in this piece. Often, in fanfiction, he is portrayed as a stereotyped Gryffindor who isn't afraid of anything; I enjoyed reading this because it was a breath of fresh air, portraying the lionhearted James Potter as somebody a little more vulnerable.

Peace,
Virgil

Author's Response: Yeh, it did feel good to make James a little more human!

Writing a story about James Potter fearing something is such an interesting idea. His fear is completely believable, too. What a scary experience for a five-year-old!

I also liked how your story also focused on the friendship between Remus and James. I find that most friendship stories from the Marauder Era are either about Sirius and James or Sirius and Remus, so it's a nice change to show Remus and James together. The banter between them was good.

The Boggart scene was also a great touch and so in character for James. XD Well done!

Author's Response: I'm glad you like the story so much, and I hope I can point you in the direction of a few of my other ones (even if this might be for the SBBC)...I can still hope.

Nice. That's what friends do.

Author's Response: Yes, I was trying to write a story that wasn't cliche and wouldn't annoy people.

Hey, Molly. I really enjoyed this story. James' fear is very well realised. I think childhood fears stay with us a lot longer than we like to admit, and his was a very frightening experience for a five-year-old. You're so right that by giving him a fear - he comes over as much more human and far less arrogant.

I particularly enjoyed Remus at the end. The fact that he's the one who comes out of the water to be with his friend. And James' reaction to Remus is brilliant. They're spending all their time helping Remus, they forget that he can help them. Your characterisation of both of them is superb and the last line made me sigh (a happy sigh).

Great one-shot, Molly.
