Chapter: Chapter One - Awkward

Yay! James/Lily ftw! And they're not arguing and he hasn;t ended up in hospital yet ... Gina, are you going easy on the boy?

Good set up. I like all this Order stuff because it gets very intense. I noticed a small error (possibly) Is Caradoc's boyfriend supposed to be 'Adrian', only you put 'Adriam' . Also this bit, I'm sitting the Hag's Rest tonight to see if I hear anything else - I think you've missed out a word somewhere.

End of minor niggles. I must read on. ~Carole~

Author's Response: I forgot to reply! Eep! Thank you for reading this story, Carole. As you've read by now, I do not go easy. And yes, it is Adriam, that's my goofy way of changing up a real name, lol. Same with sitting the Hag's Rest, our mutual pub: I did mean it that way, but I might be speaking my own language, lol. Anyway - glad you enjoyed the start, thank youuuu!~Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter Four - Teamwork

Ooh, a diagram--I was wondering how in the world you keep such excellent track of all your battles. You are just so good at it. Nice action, with lots of emotion as well. I especially liked the inclusion of Dorcas's reaction and Orsino trying to save his staff. Well done, as always.

Chapter: Chapter Three - Still Uncomfortable

I knew it would be a dreadful cliffhanger, you tease. ;) Really enjoying this--your use of magic is very good as always, and the J/L tension is just LOVE. Bring more soon....

Author's Response: Thank you Lori!! I'm so glad you enjoy my J/L stories. I always worry I am the only one who does, lol. And of course there is a cliffhanger. I love cliffhangers!! LOL Thanks again - more soon! ~Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter One - Awkward

Oh I love this first chapter, Gina! The premise is interesting and different, and I do always love the way you write J/L. I'm not sure how you do it but it always feels refreshing and new! I can't wait to read the other two chapters you've got up. My eyes are drooping and it's 3am so sorry for this short and possibly incoherent review but I really enjoyed this and will read the next two chapters tomorrow.

Author's Response: Julia! Omg, thank you so much! I'm thrilled you came by-J/L fix? ;) I'm also glad you're finding it interesting and different because, well, I do write these two a lot, lol. I hope you enjoy the rest. Thank you so much for the review!! ~Gina :)

I really like reading it from James' point of view!! I can't wait for the next chapter, I just hope that it'll be soon!!

Chapter: Chapter Three - Still Uncomfortable

Exciting, very exciting, and I like your little touches- James' dad being called Harrington, Lily's half-formed patronus...on small thing- may be others have alreadyu pointed this out- in chapter 1 ""Worry about your personal problems letter, Potter"- that will be 'later', I think.

Author's Response: Yes, that would be later, lol. Thanks for pointing out the typo, I will nip in and fix it soon. I appreciate the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the details. Thanks so much for reading and leaving a note! I hope you enjoy the rest. ~Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter Three - Still Uncomfortable

Wow. I hate cliffhangers, but this one is GOOD. :P I love fast updates, you're absolutely fantastic!

You have a little mistake, in the sixth paragraph:

"And since they saw nothing suspicious whatsoever, it almost felt like date this time." should be "like a date"

I love the chapter title, it made me laugh. :D I'll be making sure that when I eat out again, to be very careful. :P (if I go back in time, a good 20 years...)

Do you know how many chapters there will be in this story? I can't wait for the next chapter! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Haha, if you've read any of my other stories you know I LOVE cliffhangers. Literally - as in sending people over cliffs and everything. Wow, I just realized I've done that twice, yikes. I need a new go-to for a good cliffie, lol. Anyway. I'll nip in and add that missing word, thanks. As for how long this will be - nothing like my biggest, that's for sure. Six chapters, maybe? Seven, eight? That's about it. Glad you took the author's note to heart, enjoy your pasta. ;) THank you again!! ~Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter Three - Still Uncomfortable


The plot thickens! OMG, Gina, this is great! I really liked this, and I think, again, you captured the whole badass Order thing perfectly. I loved the definite awkwardness between James and Lily in this, and I also think the tension regarding the Death Eater attack was really well-written.

I... have no crit whatsoever! Fabbity fab fab. :D I can't wait for the next chapter.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you for the Order comment. This one wasn't bothering me as much as trying to give Frank and Alice an assignment. That totally tanked. *sigh* I'm glad I could build up the tension well enough, now onto the attack. No crit, really? Wow. So glad you enjoyed it, hope I live up in the rest, lol! ~Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter Two - Uncomfortable

Awwwww, they are so adorably awkward together, lol. And yet I just want them to get back togetherrrrrrr.

This is a very short review because I really want to see where things are going, Gina, but rest assured I am loving it so far :D

Author's Response: Thanks so much, Soraya! I'm glad you are enjoying it so far and hope you enjoy the rest. It'll be short. More awkwardness to come. ;) Thank youuuuuu~ Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter Two - Uncomfortable

Oh, I can't wait for the next chapter! This is fantastic, as with all your fics. So, is Lily 19, and James 18 in this one? Does it tie in with Raindrops, or just Another Chance?

So many questions... :P Keep up the good work! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm so glad you've enjoyed it. Sometimes I worry about taking it on the chin when trying something different with these breaking them up, lol. So yes, I think Lily just turned 19 and James will be 19 in March. Merlin, they are so young! As for the tie in, hmmmm. Really, I have so many 7th year stories, it could go with loads of them. But as far as any continuity, The Poppy Field is the failed proposal at the end of the school year, and Another Chance is the bit at Christmas, then this. And then I've got a few other post Hogwarts stories - another proposal and a wedding - that should fit, and a long ME planned for November, 1979 (so about ten months from this story, lol) Next chapter VERY soon, thanks again!! ~Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter One - Awkward

GINA! Omg I love this! I've read so many of your marauder stories, and yet you still manage to get all of them spot on in terms of characterisation, and your j/l plots are always so beautifully original. I... can't remember reading another chance, but I followed this just fine. Poor James! I wanted to hug him. But I get why Lily might have said no to him -- I did always think they rushed into things too quickly, tbh.

I LOVED the little tribute to James/sirius too! :D even if it amounted to nothing, lol. But I think one of the biggest strengths of the story was how realistic the Order's business seemed. I know you had some issues with it, but I seriously didn't notice at all because of the ease of your writing :)

Apologies for capitalisation errors/typos. I'm in form class (that's homeroom for you I think) so I haven't had time to look over it or anything. Anyway, this was a fabulous start. I look forward to reading more, and this story deserves wayyyyyyyy more reviews.

Author's Response: Thank you, Soraya!!! Is it really original? Because sometimes I think - hm, not really. But then I don't necessarily let myself be too bothered because I do love this couple SO FREAKING MUCH. Haha, James/Sirius FTW! Can't you just picture them waking up drunk though? That was such fun. So glad the Order came off well, I felt like I was writing around it a lot, lol. And I'm glad you like it, hope you enjoy the rest!! Thanks again! ~Gina :)

Chapter: Chapter Two - Uncomfortable

Ooh, look what I found on the most recents? With QSQ responsibilities taking up all my reading time and energy, I'm so behind on what my favorite authors have been doing. So this is me getting caught up.

This is a great read so far! The awkwardness between them in the first chapter is just painful, and I'm glad its resolving a bit here at the end of the second chapter. Still, why did she say nooooo?? Clearly, she isn't sure that was the right call. Am I right? Well? ;)

I adore your James, you know that, and this is no exception. I clicked on this knowing it was J/L, and was even more thrilled to see it was from his POV, because you are the master.

Can't wait to see where this is going! Well done!


Author's Response: Thank youuuuuu, Lori! I'm glad you're free to go read what you want, and so glad you came to read my latest bit of insanity, lol. Thank you so much for the compliments! Why did she say no? Because he asked her straight out of school and 18 was too young, too much, too soon. I wrote it in The Poppy Field for one of Alex's challenges over the summer. I've wanted to write this story for ages, so it's fun to finally get to it with no pressure. It's nothing like I had planned, though. My usual coming up, lol. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy it anyway! ~Gina :)
