lily just doesn't understand anything!!! everyone is telling her that james feels something for her and she doesn't see it, and she wastes such a good chance to talk with him!
please update soon, i can't wait! leaving james and lily in this situation...
once again,great work, this story is in my favourites too!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I guess it's not so much that she doesn't see it, she's just won't accept it. She's scared. Hopefully she'll get over it soon...or not. ;) Thanks again, hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina ;)
I'm very confused....Great chapter but I'm confused about what's going on with Sirius and mystery girl and then with James and Lily and ergh. Update soon so my curiosity doesn't eat me alive! ;) Love this story and have added it to my emailed updates :D
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Glad you are curious about Sirius. It's really just a bit of backstory, something I once drabbled that made it's way into this story. It may or may not have a bigger part, since this is really James and Lily's story. I hope you enjoy the rest, thank you so much for reading and reviewing! ~Gina :)
what is this picture you got you're inspiration from? i would love to see it! =) really excellent chapter, I like how you took a different spin on James and Lily-most stories just have them bantering, not actually fighting, but this seems more real.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the compliment! I'm glad you are enjoying them fighting, lol. The picture was a lovely bit of J/L fanart on DeviantArt - just gorgeous. Thanks so much for leaving a review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina ;)
OMG your playing with my emotions!!!!!!! you are!
Author's Response: I know, lol. It'll only get harder. ;) Thanks for the review! ~Gina :)
I have a prediction: (this could be entirely wrong but...) I think that Sirius was dating that Slytherin, and then she cheated on him with Regulus...just throwing it out there ;)
Author's Response: I love hearing predictions, lol. You'll find out soon! Thanks so much for sharing and for reviewing! I hope you enjoy where it goes! ~Gina :)
one step forward, two steps back, wonderful story though ;)
Author's Response: It's true, isn't it? Poor James and Lily, lol. Thanks so much for the lovely review! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: It really is at times. Hopefully it will work out for them. ;) Thanks for reviewing! ~Gina :)
This is flawless. I absolutely love this story. I can honestly say that I check fanfiction.mugglenet.com daily, hoping that you've posted a new chapter. I always want more and the time in between chapters I always find myself wondering where the story will go next. Awesome job. Please keep it up and please post chapter 16 soon!
Author's Response: Thank you for the amazing review! I don't know about flawless, but thank you! I'm so glad you are enjoying it so much. I'll be posting the next chapter later this week so I hope you enjoy it - thanks again!! ~Gina :)
Ohhh...don't tell me Lily is back with Mark again.. I want her with James..! Poor James.!
Author's Response: I suppose you'll have to wait and see what happens later on...thanks for the review, I hope you enjoy it! ~Gina :)
What a cliffie, though I suppose Sirius's secret has been a mystery for the whole fic so far, now I'm just even more intrigued to know who it it, as well as interested in what happened between Sirius and Regulus.
Interesting how you had James and Peter share a moment. You did it well, stating how Peter would not react at all like Remus or Sirius, but that he would simply listen.
Great chapter, post when you can!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! I'm especially glad you appreciate the Peter moment, because he never gets them and I was sort of happy to be able to do that for him, lol. And yes, Sirius has a secret and there will be more about that coming up. I hope you enjoy finding out more - thanks again for the lovely review! ~Gina :)
One of the most romantic scenes I've ever read in Mugglenet..! And I like that James is angry with Lily..it makes it more interesting ;)
Author's Response: Yay! Thanks so much for that compliment, it makes my day. Especially since I sat on that kiss for sooooo long! Thanks so much for following this story, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
This was a great chapter! I was a little hesitant throughout to really dive deep into this story (I don't like James and Lily fighting and truly hurting each other like that), but it has come to such a wonderful, such a tragic, such a REAL place. I'm glad I'm able to enjoy this story.
Author's Response: I'm glad you are enjoying the story now, I know there is quite a bit of ugly antagonism at times. And there are bits I've even toned down as the story developed. I appreciate the comment about it seeming real, because while I can picture this happening, I constantly worry it might be a bit too much. Thanks so much for giving this a try, I really appreciate the lovely review! ~Gina :)
can't wait to see what happens next
Author's Response: I hope you enjoy it, thanks for the review! ~Gina :)
This is one of my favorite chapters so far, and I have to respectfully disagree with the previous reviewer who suggested this is bad timing for a heart-to-heart. I think real life is like this. Lily had planned to talk to him after the match, not knowing how badly it would go... and now, what we have are two physically uncomfortable (soaked), emotionally messed-up (particularly James) people who need to have it out. I love that it was in the rain. If they had been sitting all prim and proper in the common room, they would not have been so heart-breakingly honest with each other or so vulnerable. Just my opinion, but I loved how you did this, Gina. And I wouldn't be my annoying self if I didn't alert you to the fact that there are 3 or 4 errors here and there that probably happened when you were formatting. A slow read-through will reveal them, I'm sure. But the one that made me stumble a bit was this: "Please, James," she implied. I think you probably meant implored?? Anyway, sorry I'm a total nuisance. I just like it when people tell me those things b/c they are so easy to fix. And in your favorite chapter! :) Love this so much! But am also ready for a real kiss, preferably initiated by James!! (Oh, and one more thing: your Remus is and always has been wonderful and dreamy.)
Nice chapter! Loved it!
First - great chapter. Loved how Lily finally realized her feelings.
Second - come on already! I just want a good kiss they are both into!
it was great.i love it.
Oh I love this chapter too! It's really lovely, and I can't wait to see their reaction the next time they see each other, it'll be brilliant I'm sure. So please please please don't wait too long to update :)
Some pretty hurtful words were spoken by James here - "Why would I ever want to talk to you again, Lily, when all we ever do is fight?" "Why should I believe you any more than you believed me?" "Welcome to the other side." "I can't work with you anymore." and the saddest of all, "I hate trying to hate you." Your Lily is so slow to recognize her feelings. James may do well to show great caution in light of her actions (kissing him) particularly since she ran off right after and left him alone in the rain. Thank you for the update - it is good to see Lily finally opening up.
I can't imagine a very productive conversation betweet James and Lily in the rain after losing the quidittch match. It is good to see Lily taking some initiative but maybe another time would be better? Thanks for the update!
