Author's Response: Thank you!
That was lovely. I enjoyed each and every story. Very well written and in character, as well as funny, clever, poignant, and moving. Fantastic job! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! :)
This fic is so sweet and a great concept! All of the stories are very well-written.
Author's Response: Thanks! Thanks for reading
This was a well-written story, and each of the characters came across really well, which is difficult considering how short each section was. I'll go through and write a bit about each part now.
James/Lily: Your James was just ridiculously adorable! I liked how you had Lily noticing the change in him, and how that culminated with him calling her by her first name. It was a really sweet section and a great opening for this story.
Luna/Anthony: For most of this section, I thought you really nailed Luna, and she's a difficult character to write without her being entirely spacey or too normal.
The girls looked at each other and giggled nervously. Luna waited patiently for them to tell her what was so funny. She loved laughing, she was always much happier when she was laughing than when she wasn't. But it didn't work simply to laugh to try to be happier. She had tried it. Laughing without something to laugh about wasn't quite the same. This was a great paragraph, and it felt really IC for Luna - I also loved the line about it being terrible when someone forgets your birthday.
I have to say, I found her reaction to Anthony helping her was a little bit over the top, or something. I don't think Luna would really think that they'd be friends just after him helping her... although I suppose she would get helped so rarely. I don't know, that bit just didn't quite sit right with me. It was great that he called her by her real name though.
Remus/Tonks: A drunk Remus, nice one! Tonks is an interesting character to pick in a story about names. I liked the way you ended with him calling her Dora. It provided a nice explanation for why he does in canon, when everyone else (except her Dad I think) calls her Tonks. It was also rather amusing to see him drunk.
George: This part was interesting, because most of this story is quite humorous and light-hearted, and this part was just heart-wrenching. You really captured his pain and his loneliness and this was just such a great characterisation of George in such a short section.
At times, he wished he could, but all it took was a look in the mirror. That line was just so sad and really showed what it's like to be George after Fred's death.
Harry/Molly: (That looks weird lol but it's not meant as a pairing...) I've always found it strange that Harry still calls her Mrs Weasley, even when he's practically an adult and has stayed with them so often, so I enjoyed you showing the first time he calls her Molly, and I loved the idea that she would walk down the aisle with him. This whole scene was heart-warming but also funny - particularly Ron's reaction about Ginny already being pregnant. You got the trio really well in character.
Hannah/Neville: You have a knack of making the guys in this story absolutely adorable... actually Hannah was pretty adorable in this part too. It was a really well-written part and just really cute.
James: This one really made me smile, I particularly liked how you incorporated quotes relating to Harry and James in canon. It worked very nicely. Your James junior was really how I imagine Harry's Dad to have been at that age. Anyway, this was a lovely scene, Albus and Severus were also really in character. I smiled at the chocolate frog cards thing.
Anyway, this was a great read and a really well-written story.
Author's Response: Thank you for the fabulous review! Yes, I didn't want the entire thing to end up in a pairings sort of thing, and I wanted to get a different mood in each section which is why I included the George one. Luna's was the hardest to write, I see what you're saying about her over-reacting, I kind of thought it out beforehand that she was maybe in her second year but that doesn't really work if Anthony's a prefect. Ah, well. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!
this story made me laugh out loud!
Author's Response: Haha I hope it was at a funny moment and not at George mourning his dead twin or anything. . .Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Very nice fic, filled with cute moments :) I must say, drunk Lupin and sleep-walking James were probably my favourites :P
Author's Response: Haha thank you, I like the idea of James sleep-walking as well :) Mum, I SWEAR I didn't mean to end up in Al's room in his closet, I didn't MEAN to scare him, it just happened!
Author's Response: Thank you!
Hiya, I haven't finished yet, but I thought I would point this out...
”The girls looked at each other and giggled nervously. Luna waited patiently for them to tell her what was so funny. She loved laughing, she was always much happier when she was (I personally wouldn’t italicize the word “was”) laughing than when she wasn't. But it didn't work simply to laugh to try to be happier. She had tried it. Laughing without something to laugh about wasn't quite the same."
I think you've forgotten to delete some Beta-reader advice in that paragraph... ;) Loving it so far though, will leave a proper review when I've finished :)
Author's Response: Ahh thanks so much, just fixed it :) I really should look it over more slowly before I submit it. . .
This was really good. I especially liked the last one.
Author's Response: Thank you, thanks for reading!
I really, really enjoyed reading this fic! I love the theme for it. You built each situation well and the characters were strong and well developed for the short time they were there. I loved the way you made it somewhat chronological, starting with James and Lily and ending with little James and Dumbledore/Snape. It was both touching and funny. Great Job!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I almost decided to start with something other than Lily and James, but then I decided I might as well start and end in something that involved a James Potter :) Thanks for reading!
