Chapter: Chapter 6-Trouble Brewing

It's a great start so far! Lily's gradual warming up to James is wonderfully written. Thanks.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like it! :)

Chapter: Chapter 6-Trouble Brewing

love it . i plan to keep on reading , but i have a few questions: how many chapters do you plan on this being ? and how often do you update ?

i really like your take on the classic lily and james tale . (: . i promise to be a devoted reader , and i really hope you continue to write and to not give up on this story !

i cant wait to read more ! update soon (:


Author's Response: Hi! First of all, thanks for the lovely review, and I'm honored that you plan to be a devoted reader! :) As to your questions, I think this is a little more than a third of the way into the story. Unfortunately, I usually have time only to update once a month, although more often if it's a month with a school vacation in it. Also, though, I make sure the chapter is the best I can make it even before I send it to my beta, so that's part of the slowness in updating. I will not give up on this story, I can promise you that!

Chapter: Chapter 1- That Easy

This is a really nice story. You've illustrated the characters well and the friendship between the Mauraders really shows. :) The only thing I'd say that needs improvement is the speed of it. James and Lily's relationship is going just a bit too quickly and I think the story would benefit from it being slower. Being completely honest, though, I really enjoyed this. The stories I've read lately aren't as good as this and so this was very refreshing. Update soon! :D

Author's Response: Thank you very much! :) I really appreciate the depth of your review. Actually, I was worried that the relationship between James and Lily was progressing too slowly, so I'm glad you don't think so. I'll keep that in mind as I write the next chapters.

Chapter: Chapter 1- That Easy

I really love each chapter! You really do a good job of showing each characters personality traits very well and how their interactions with the other characters impress on them. Love it! Keep up the fantastic work!!

Author's Response: Thanks! :) I really try to imagine how the traits of the Marauders and Lily mentioned in canon would shape their character, so I'm glad you think I'm succeeding so far. Thank you for the detail in this review, especially—I like finding out what people notice about the story.

Chapter: Chapter 5-What Friends Are For

This is amazing. When's the next chapter out??

Author's Response: Thank you! :) Chapter 6 will be out as soon as I've written it and sent it off to my wonderful beta. Right now, I've got about a page written because this has been a crazy week for me. I'm happy you're enjoying the story!

Chapter: Chapter 5-What Friends Are For

You really are an AMAZING writer, this paticular chapter wasn't your best, but it really illustraits how loyal james is to remus.
I loved it , please write the next chapter as soon as possible!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing! :) I did intend this chapter to show James' loyalty to his friends because it's an important part of his character, and so far he's been too busy mooning over Lily, I think. If you have any specific suggestions to make the chapter better, definitely message me.

ooooo now that was exciting!

I like that how you described James' transformation into his stag form :).

Can't wait till the next chapter is up :D

Author's Response: Thanks! That part in the chapter was difficult to write--especially the part where Remus almost bites James. Glad you liked it! :)

Chapter: Chapter 4-Something There That Wasn't There Before

Lily was sooooo blushing because she thinks James is hot ;)

Loving the story so far :D

Author's Response: Oh, she's definitely in denial at this point. And honestly, I love getting a review for each chapter because I don't know what parts really stand out otherwise. Thank you!!

Chapter: Chapter 2- Responsibility

James' sonnet was a work of genius haha. Made me laugh :).

Keep up the good work :)

Author's Response: Thanks! James' sonnet is definitely my favorite part of this chapter, even though it doesn't help in convincing Lily that he's any more mature. xD

Chapter: Chapter 1- That Easy

Just found your story and I'm enjoying it so far :).

I think you're characterisations are great, and I love James' mum and how she treats James and Sirius :)

k4c x

Author's Response: Thank you! I actually really appreciate that because, oddly enough, Mrs. Potter's short appearance in this chapter was the most difficult to write. I didn't want her to be too babying, but JKR has always said that James was a rather spoiled child.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! This review just made my day! :) I've just started chapter five. Schoolwork always gets in the way of my writing, unfortunately, but hopefully I'll finish the chapter soon in a way that I'm satisfied with.

Oh, how I loved beta'ing this fic! I can't wait for James and Lily to get together!


Author's Response: Well I greatly appreciated your editing! Seriously, you made the story a lot better. And I can't wait either, but I feel that it would be a bit of a letdown if I didn't include a legitimate plot xD
