Cannot wait to see how the trial plays out! Next few chapters should be pretty exciting ;-)
Author's Response: Thanks! The trial is still a couple chapters away, but we're getting there. We just have a few other things to deal with first.
Wow, Very interesting there at the end!
Ack! He liiikes her, he liiiiikes her! Not really, but I dunno. I like mushy fluffy things, cuz they make me feel warm and tingly inside, but I also just like any James/Lily interaction. I guess that makes me weird, but I couldn't care less!
Anyways, I liked this chapter. Alot. A lot, a lot. And I can't wait for the next one, and the next one, and the one after that and just for it to continue being amazing. And yeah...I have this story set on my favorite page on my internet thingy. Just thought you'd like to know...
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, he does like her, although he doesn't quite understand that yet. And don't worry, there will be plenty of James/Lily interaction in future chapters, and some of it will be fluffy. But some won't...
Love it! I really do!
great chapter :)
Ooohhh! Poor Frank, he's gonna be mighty messed up from the fire (Fyre?) when he gets checked up. I have a feeling that it was Bellatrix too--who else is crazy enough to laugh in the face of uncontrollable fire? She's just a loser. I am sooo looking forward to the trial, whenever that is. And, though it might never happen, I think it'd be cool to see inside Lily's head. But, then, if we were, it's prolly give away like the whole plot. Or at least, the past. I'm sure you know what I mean...
Author's Response: Thanks! You'll find out eventually who attacked Frank. There are still a handful of chapters before the trial. And we will see inside Lily's head every now and then in the flashbacks and in one of the final chapters. But, you're right, if we saw in her head right now, it would give away a lot of the plot.
Was that Bellatrix Lestrange?
Author's Response: You'll find out eventually...
Very good! I just finished all you have posted and I am sooooo hooked!
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you stick with the story.
Ahhhh, I've been putting off reading this for some time now, because of the massive AU (I don't like Remus dead :( ) I finally decided to read it today and I really like the way you write. It's a lot darker that the fics I usually read and I really like that. It's very different too and not just because of the AU. I don't think that the characters are very cannon, but you make a point to say that they do change. I really like how you describe the characters and I can't wait to see how this story will develop. It's pretty confusing at the moment, you don't know what really happened but I'm sure that by the end it wont be as much. I like the way you disclose the information as well, lke you don't give too much away. I look forward to reading the rest of the story, it's definately interesting :)
Author's Response: Thanks! I know people are hesitant on this because of how AU it is. Hopefully as the story progresses it will feel a little less AU because a lot of the elements from the books will be incorporated. All of the confusing parts should be explained during the story, but it might take a while before things are clear. Writing this, I felt like Lily was the furthest from canon, and that is because of everything that has happened to her (she was never this discriminated against in the books), so I've actually tried to make her different (or, at least, how I think she would be if she had gone through this).
I love how you wrote Narcissa. Like, she's so graceful and willowy and delicate and smooth and aristocratic and detached and interested and a little mean, but she does actually have a heart.
I think that Remus killed Malfoy, because he loved Lily so much and whatnot. I'm prolly wrong, but that's what I think as of now.
I also loved your writing style. I dunno, it's just like...good. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. And yeah.
Oh! And Happy Pi Day!!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm a big fan of Narcissa and like writing her. She has so many contradictions, and it's fun to try to combine her spitefulness for the world and her love for her son. As for you theory as to what happened to Malfoy... I can't confirm or deny, but I do like hearing what people are thinking.
Teehee. I love Sirius. He makes everything happier.
I have an opinion of what happened to Lucius.And I think I'm right. But who could kill Remus? Like, seriously. He's the nicest person/character ever!
You've probably already mentioned this in earlier chapters, but I forget: how much older is James than Lily?
Anyway, I really liked this chapter/fanfic.
And, yeah. It's just good. Darker than what I usually read, but really, really good, nonetheless.
Author's Response: Thanks. Yes, Sirius does always lighten the mood. Well, most of the time, anyway... I'd be interested to hear your opinion about what happened to Lucius (although I won't actually tell you if you're right or wrong until we get to that point of the story). James, Sirius, and Marlene were all three years ahead of Lily and Remus at Hogwarts.
sorry, can't think of another way to put that! Whew, this is heating up! Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic....update soon??!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! There are a lot more twists and turns ahead, and I hope you continue to like the story.
Very interesting :-)
im absolutley loving this....the writing is really intense and captivating...please update soon
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm trying to update as quickly as I can.
Well written chapter...Cannot wait to see where the next one goes!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you're liking it still.
AU - ewwwww!
But this one is WOW. Bloody amazing stuff Dawnie, seriously. Dying for an update here!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you're sticking with it even though it is AU. I used to have an aversion to AU, too, but then I decided to try writing it... I guess that changed my mind. And hopefully the story will have enough elements from the books that it won't feel so AU.
Oooh. I dunno why, but I'm really excited for James to meet an 8 yr old Draco Malfoy. I guess I'm just strange. I liked this chapter, even if it wasnt my favorite. And I wanted to say that in one of the articles, you said 'the trial is scheduled to being November 5th' instead of Noverember 15th. Just thought you'd want to know.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked the chapter. It was kind of slow, but I had to give background for people (and James) to know what happened seven years ago. And thanks for pointing out the typo, it was supposed to say Nov. 15th.
This is fascinating. I look forward to reading more!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm really glad you like it!
