Slightly confused here, but that’s probably just me (and my crazy mind again). Did Sirius become an alcoholic? Or was it just a little crush on Lily? (Crazy mind: actually, Sirius as an alcoholic would be interesting..manic and difficult, but interesting...)
Keeping it concise: the usual great ideas, brilliant characterisation, good knowledge (of the Potterverse and, so it would seem, botany) or research, and your own straightforward style.
Only noticed the Rosmerta – roses pun: oops…that was my third read…

Author's Response: Oh, no I didn't mean he was like Alphard with the alcohol (not at this stage, anyway) I meant that he liked girls with red hair, but he'll never act on it because of his friendship with James. Mind you, I do think Sirius had a problem with alcohol and depression in OOTP when he's left at Grimmauld Place, but that's another story :)

Ah, the botany. Gooogle is always a great help - hee hee.

Thank you for all your reviews. They mean a lot. ~Carole~

Awh, so you think Sirius had a little crush on Lily at one point? Cute :) And, sorry to bombard you with all these reviews! I've made it a personal mission to go through your stories and read them.

Author's Response: I think Sirius fancied her a little git in the canon of that story, but he liked and loved James far too much to do anything about it. Hee hee. Thank you for bombarding me with reviews; it's lovely. ~Carole~

Hi. I feel self-conscious because I ALWAYS review your stories, but you totally deserve it ... so, here I am.

I really loved your characterization of Sirius. I was never quite able to peg anyone from that time, so I always love reading it! The subtle interest he showed in Lily was a nice touch, along with Rosmerta's warning looks. It added a very real aspect to the Marauder dynamic. Lily was there because Sirius' friends sent her because they couldn't be there. Sirius is still a boy, so he kind of has eyes for Lily, but he knows he can't because James loves her ... What I mean to say is that it was all very human, everyone characterized in this fic.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm fond of this story for reasons too boring to go into here, but basically it means a lot that you thought the characterisation of Sirius was good. Thanks for reviewing ~Carole~

I cannot believe that I never reviewed this. Well, I'm staying up all night, so what the hell. I read this a while ago when my friend, Erik, was put into remission for cancer. As you probably can tell, I read when I have problems that I can't deal with. Reading and literature, in a way, are my religion. So I read anything, and, obviously, HP was my teenage literature. This Marauder fic, in particular, took up my time when there was nothing else. That's how I found the site ... anyway, as a general statement, this is just a good tragedy turned to hope story. Death, or setbacks, after all, are part of life. That's something we have to deal with and I cope with reading ... reading anything, Thank you or that. I don't think I ever mentioned it, although I read this twice.

Author's Response: Thnaks Jennifer. This was a very satisfying piece to write for various reasons which I won't go into here. I'm glad you enjoyed it - or rather found some solace when you were going through a bad time. ~Carole~

Okay, let us see, what can I say about my favourite Marauder entertaining thoughts of his best-friend's girl?

Great work. This story is beautifully written and quite entertaining. It is also, quite plausible that Sirius would hold a special place in his heart for Lily.

I think, though, you need to write a sequel and have Rosemerta get her "hooks" into Sirius for a bit. That would be interesting. Perhaps some Firewhisky charmed with a potion to loosen up Sirius' resolve? Hmmm, could be interesting. hehehehe

Author's Response: I don't think Sirius would need much potion to loosen his resolve - ha ha. Oh, and now you and Thea are turning this weeny little cute bunny into something monstrous - heh heh - I can't wait. Thanks for the review ~Carole~

Carole, this was brilliant! I love Sirius/Lily, and I'm kind of sad that it couldn't happen...But the dynamic you had here was brilliant! This was a really great concept for a story, and the writing was impeccable. {BeccA}

Author's Response: Thank you, Becca. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I'm a James/Lily fan really but sometimes I have to indulge my inner Sirius/Lily. ~Carole~

SOOO disappointed...I was rather hoping for a good shag on the bar or something. Ah, well....

Author's Response: Now, now, Thea. That would be a Professors rated fic. Mind you, I think Sirius was rather hoping for a good shag on the bar as well. He should take Rosmerta out one day. *evil plot bunny approacheth and we know what bunnies like to do* Thank you ~Carole~

Ah, Carole, you're brilliant as usual. I saw your banner and had to read this and I'm glad I did. Your Marauder-Era fics are always such great reads and somehow you completely avoid cliches while keeping the characters perfectly themselves. I absolutely loved the Lily/Sirius dynamic you had going on and your last line was perfect. Anyway, another great chick fic!!! I can't wait for another Lavender Blue update, by the way ;)

Author's Response: Thank you Julia, I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Chick-fics - ha ha - I like that. I rather like the Lily/Sirius dynamic too, but I suspect I'm too canon-bound to push it much furthur. ~Carole~

awww..poor sirius! i like the sirius/lily ship you're doing here-as long as nothing comes of it! -.-
good story! :)

Author's Response: AGHHH! Scared now. Actually, I'm far too canon for my own good, but I like the impossibity of this ship, for Sirius would never take it furthur. ~Carole~

I really love this story. You do Marauder Era so well! I love reading this Era when the characters are correct.

I really love Sirius and Lily together in this one shot. They just fit together so well. I also like the plot to this story. It was a lot of fun to read. I also like the ending to this. It made me smile.

There isn't much else I can say about this other than I loved it. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I do appreciate reviews, especially when they're as lovely as yours. I'm glad you enjoyed it, as it was a bunny that wouldn't leave me alone. ~Carole~
