Chapter: But I'm A Gryffindor

Interesting story, I really like the idea of taking bits and pieces of the years and making them into a one shot. It’s a good way to show the reader what they need to know, when they need to know it.

Your characterization seems spot on to me, and I love the repeating theme of “I am a Gryffindor.” James was very proud to be one, though his family had a history of Gryffindors, and it makes sense that he constantly thought of it. He probably wanted to impress his family, though who knows if they would think James jumping into an icy cold lake is impressive…or just place stupid, and to live up to the Gryffindor name. I also love the relationship between James and Lily. This was something that was being debated not long ago on the forums in the MWPP class, whether or not James love Lily from first sight, and it being a kid love or not. I have to say I agree with what you have here. I think that James would have thought Lily was cute, but would have never really pursued her because of the fact that she is friends with Snape, first and foremost, and maybe he did have interest in other girls, that is wholly possible. You definitely have a lot of food for thought in this story. It is very uncliched and original. :D

Other than that, I would have liked to see some more at the end. As a reader we have a suspicion as to who the letter was from, but we don’t know. I would have really loved to know that. It just feels like there is so much more that the reader doesn’t know at the end, and while it’s implied as to what happens, I would have really loved to read it happen.

Overall, great story! It’s very original, and a good read.

Ahh, you're back, you're back and I'm delighted. (Now go and finish Light Up my Life!). You know something, yours was the first fanfiction I read on this site, and I still rave over it. You have a wonderful lyrical quality to your writing. I love this story and Lily is a joy. Not at all stuffy, or rulebound and I LOVED it when she kissed him (the first time).

I have to agree though, that it seemed a very abrupt ending. I had to go and check whether the story was completed and was then puzzled because it is. Hmmm, I don't know. I sure hope he's not going to let Moony down.

Great story though. Carole xxx

Uhhhh, it was really good!!! James was perfect!!! I was getting annoyed with all of the cliches in L/J fics, but this one made me realize why I love them so much!! It was great! Amazing! I loved it!!!!! LOVED IT!!!

bujt therer are a few things that are a llittle unclear to me....
Like which years it always was...I get that they were differern, but if I remember correctly, a part of 7th grade came at the beginning - and then it jumps back???

And the note.
The note.

Well, obviously it's from Lily (IS IT??? *hopes*).
But there isn't more?
Althoughit's kind of neet leaving it open for readers to imagine their own endings....

This is when of the most original approaches to James/Lily I've read in a while. I think it's great that James doesn't fall for her during first year and persue her for all time after. I think it's nice that he takes time to realise. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you! :)

It was really nice to see a story from you again! I always like your stories :) and I liked this one too... I like the way you showed Lily and James' relationship developing and everything ... it was really good ... but is this the actual end?? It seems a bit abrubt and unfinished?

Author's Response: Haha, I was thinking the same thing, but I did just want to do snippets into each year and I think I succeeded with that. Maybe I'll add a follow up or something, who knows!
