Oh my, this story has certainly taken a darker turn. I suppose I'll have to wait and see if Dumbledore has any ideas to help Lily. Obliviation comes to mind but would that take away the curse? Poor Lily (poor James, too)!
Author's Response: Yes, it gets a bit dark, I suppose. They did defy him three times and it couldn't have been a simple 'No' so I've giving it a go.Good thinking on the Obliviation! ;) Thanks for the review!! ~Gina :)
A proposal during a duel with Deatheaters? James is so impulsive - it was amusing that Sirius was literally in the middle of the proposal. The scenes with Voldemort were appropriately frightening. I look forward to reading what happens next.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the start. I actually wrote that proposal as a drabble a while ago and never imagined it would grow into a story. Thanks for reading, I appreciate it as always! ~Gina :)
Again, Great chapter!! The plot's really interesting - and as always - a cliffhanger ! Is this going to be the main plot through the whole story??? I wonder how are you going to get Lily out of this! xD
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Yes, this is the main plot - it's a short story. I'm glad you enjoyed the cliffhanger, there are a few more. I appreciate the review - hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
I'm enjoying this Gina... just read the first three chapters at once when I really should be sleeping. Hehe. I liked your description of Voldy here, with the hair... I seem to remember references to his progression into a snakelike form as being gradual, so we really don't know what he would have looked like back then. I like that you chose to mix it up. Excellent characterization and action as usual. :) Looking forward to the next chapter....
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading this, Lori!! I really appreciate it. I'm glad you enjoyed it, as I'm starting to see that darker James/Lily stories don't always go over as well as the fluffier ones I write. But I had to do a J/L for my 100th. :) Thanks for the compliment on the action, it took me a while to work out. The characters are like old friends, though. I hope you enjoy the rest! Thanks again! ~Gina :)
WOOT WOOT WOOT! And what a story!
Rollercoaster ride, Gina. This is great. I love the suspense and the action and the plot and everything. Hee, James, you daft boy, asking her to get married in the middle of the action - ha - so very Gryffindor! Fortunately Lily is a little less reckless.
,br> Good story, Gina. Looking forward to Chapter 2. ~Carole~
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Carole! I'm glad you enjoyed the first chapter. It is a bit of a rollercoaster ride. I like writing action...sometimes. ;) I actually started with the first 500 or so words as a drabble for that LJ community so you might have read it before. It's been fun and interesting to develop it into more. I hope you enjoy the rest. Not sure if it's different for me, it might be. Thanks again! ~Gina :)
Amazing! I LOVE this chapter! Some questions though - how old are they now? And how many chapters are you giving this story? Loved it! - wait! Voldemort has hair?!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! This takes place less than a year after they've left Hogwarts, so they are about 19 years old, I'd say. I'm planning for six chapters and they are mostly done. And since we don't know what Voldemort looked like before he lost his body, I gave him hair. Weird, huh? ;) Thanks again for the review, I hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
This is fantastic writing, you got Lily and James spot on. :D A horrible cliff-hanger too. :P Can't wait for what's to come. How many chapters are you planning for?
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the start. It's six chapters and I've finished the majority of it so it won't be long to wait on the cliff hangers. Thanks so much for the review, I hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
