Chapter: Dancing Queen

My gramma passed away a few years ago and her funeral was the same day as my little sister's 21st birthday. We all knew Gramma would have wanted Lib to have a good day so we took her out after the funeral and to cheer her up my older sister and I played Dancing Queen. We twirled Libby around the floor and got her into a better mood. This story took me right back to that day. You have such a good writing style and your dialogue is very well written.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm glad this story and the song were able to evoke memories, that whilst initially sad, were quite hopeful. ~Carole~

Chapter: Dancing Queen

I loved it! I love finishing a story with a big grin on my face. Really, this was brilliant, and I'll tell you why. You took something that we never get in canon - wizards flailing around in Muggle popular culture - and wrote it in an completely believable way that never feels forced or contrived. You made it funny - AND you wove in this touch of darkness at the end. Oh, and I love a story with a good J/L moment, too. :)

From the very beginning it was obvious you'd done your research, making a great connection between Patience Burbage and Charity Burbage. And then to take this assignment - a songfic in the 70s?! - and turn it into a tribute to her was just so original. The song was perfect and I loved seeing Lily break out of her shell to it. I also liked seeing a perfectly respectable Peter Pettigrew.

Great job, this was just fantastically well done!

Author's Response: Wow! Thanks Gina. I was really nervous about submitting this one because it's a bit ummm, 'fluffy' I guess, but Natalie persuaded me. I'm glad the Marauders in the Muggle world worked and didn't come over as too contrived. Thanks again ~Carole~

Carole, would you believe I went to a training yesterday for preschool teachers and there learned the sign language for Dancing Queen? I cracked up when I saw this... it must be a Dancing Queen weekend for me!

I really enjoyed this. I think the only other Marauder era or L/J thing I have read is the one you recently did for the char challenge... you are getting me hooked! :) I loved that the girls just went for it, even though they didn't expect them, too. The characters were just right, and I was hoping that someone would wake up and notice that something was really wrong with Lily... of course, it would be James. :)

One thing I always appreciate is a detail like this one: "Outside, the air was cold and James could see frost beginning to form in feather-like patterns on car windowpanes." These details make me feel like I could be right there with them, walking behind (in a completely non-stalkerish way, of course). ;)

This is wholly an unhelpful review, but I just really liked it. I'm making a note to sniff out more quality L/J fics.

Author's Response: Lori, thanks so much for the review. Ha ha - I hope you knew all the words to the song and were singing along. OOOh, am I converting you to Marauder J/L - hee hee. I'm always on the lookout for converts. Glad you liked the little details; I don't put many in as I'm spectacularly bad at description, but I had this imageof our car frosting up as I wrote it. Thanks again ~Carole~

Loved this one-shot! And Patience Burbage... she's from Apparently Asleep, yeah? Also, I remember reading The Lions of Gryffindor with Martha McDonald - I love the way you connect all your stories together!

Author's Response: Patience Burbage is mentioned in AA, but that's her eldest daughter. Charity is her youngest. Thanks for the review. Glad you liked it. ~Carole~
