Finished chapter 9, and just wanted to say that I, too, love the flashbacks, here and in earlier chapters. You've integrated them so smoothly into the main story line that we get all the back story without needing 7 books to cover the 7 years the Marauders spend at Hogwarts.
Author's Response: aww thank you, lunafish! it's been a while since I read a review for VR (that would be because it is tres difficult to respond to them...:( ) the flashbacks, i must say, are my favorite things to write. I can get as much as I want into them without having to worry about continuing on afterwards. I can stop whenever I've got what I wanted to done (which is why I'm going to write one-shots next)
This story was so beautiful and emotional and gripping and so many more things. I cant thank you enough for writing it. I loved it. P.S Your story helped me feel so much closer to Remus Lupin than ever before. Thank you.
Author's Response: heehee, mrs. snape, i do what i can to bring all closer to remus (my personal fave :) )
Hi!!!!!!!!!!!! i love your fic!!!!!! the way you see the characters is great! i love James, and Remus, but i simply adore Sirius he's the best! but not so fond of the Sirius jokes XD i've been reading for a while, but as you can see i do not writte so good in english (need to practice) but i want you to know that your fic is in the top5 ^-~ and i promise to writte another terrible review when i finish the other one, hope you keep writting, sorry for the terrible writting ^^'
Ah! I loved the 'No, I'm Sirisu' jokes, hope you don't mind if I take them (not all the way though! I'll credit you!) but I really loved it. It was funny, and it showed the humorous side of Remus, which doesn't happen alot. Peter was cool too. I liked the Shakespeare scene with James and lily and "YOU WERE AT THE SEVEN QUESTIONS UNTIL BED" part. Good job. I'm about to go read your other stories...
Mademoiselle Single i dont get it is James really that dence, im mademoiselle is madam! LOVE THE STORY
Mademoiselle Single i dont get it is James really that dence, im mademoiselle is madam! LOVE THE STORY
This is the best story I've ever read on Mugglenet. Period. The only one that comes close to this is Between Now and Then, and you also wrote that one. You're an incredible author! The characters seemed so real, and Lily's transition into becoming a Marauder was really believeable, unlike some stories. The Sirius/Serious jokes kept me laughing until the end, and I guess it truely is a joke that never gets old. When Remus finally came out with "No, he's Sirius," I started to laugh and at the same time so sad! All good stories have to end, though, but I look eagerly forward to your other story, Between Now And Then. (It seems kind of a like a sequel to this story, is it?) I also loved the friendship between Sirius and Remus, which are my favorite Marauders too. Keep writing more stories, you're the author that keeps the Marauders alive in fan fiction!
omg i hate that new dada prof! grrr... poor sirius... great chapter!
Author's Response: lol thank you! yeah, she's a bum, but every school has to have at least ONE bad teacher. (at least she's not snape!!)
great chapter, i like the way how you characterize the people
Can't...stop...laughing...just...too...funny Best quote: "ANYWAY!" Sirius said, turning back to the Pitch. "I give you the Slytherin Quidditch Team. Huzzah," he added unenthusiastically. The Slytherins began to boo him. "HEY! IF YOU WANT TO INSULT ME COME OVER HERE AND DO IT TO MY FACE!" Sirius roared and his magnified voice rang out in the suddenly silent crowd. With a satisfied smile, Sirius continued. ANd this one:"Hey Rosier!" Sirius taunted. "Go ahead and try sending a Bludger at me during the match!" he gestured to the entire faculty sitting behind him. "Black!" McGonagall shrieked. "Commentate only!" Sirius shrugged. "I'll do my best, Professor." still laughing too hard... 10 googleplex out of ten. still laughing,~SiriuslyBright~
Author's Response: yay i LOVE googleplexes!!!! and i like the Quidditch chapter :) i was awfully proud of that one if i do say so myself :)
I just finished reading this story for the fifth time, and it gets better each time. I swear, I can't find a single fault, ANYWHERE. I love this story more than anyother, and it's first on my favorites for a reason! I've already reviwed your other story a million thimes, so I won't repeat anything that I said there here. This story made me laugh, cry, smile, and be embarrased. The Sirius jokes are timeless,*Remus:groan* I read it all in one sitting, I loved it so much! Thanks for writing the best story EVER! ~SiriuslyBright~
Author's Response: AH its not the best story EVER.....*blush* you are too kind. :) but im sorry it made you feel embarrassed. i feel special that i inspired so many feelings out of you! perhaps there is hope for my writing yet!!
omg this is great!!!!!!!!!!!! i luv this sooo much!!!!
Author's Response: yay!!! oh, thank you prongs! i feel so happy! i have to admit, im awfully proud of this story. i worked so hard... thank you!
WOW! I love this story! I bet u if JK Rowling saw this... she would think its her own work! (btw, thanx for telling me how to review work!)
Holy fuck that wuz hilarious! oh- *blushes* sorry- i didnt know u were there! that was awesum! best laff ive had in a while! especially the part wen sirius says "where the hell are the toilets?"!! Hoo! I laffed pretty hard at that and sum other hilarious parts! too bad its over tho.... i really liked it.
Author's Response: ha/! oh thank you! (sorry this is late in coming) im glad you thought it was funny (best watch the language, though, i dont know if mods like it ;) )
Wow, you've got some thick reviews there! This ha turned out to be one of my favorite fanfictions. (Mainly cause I finished it in one night, and THAT's a record!) Its mainly cause of how well you made each character (mainly Lupin cos I've tried and he's hard!) Though you have to admit he and the rest of the Maradurs kinda grow on you when writtting. Well, I'm gonna turn in, but I plan to read your next fic in the morning. Keep up the good writting!
Author's Response: oh MAN!!!! "veiled revelations" in its entirety in ONE NIGHT!! kudos my friend, kudos!!!!! and i know about lupin - he is TOUGH. there's so much to him. very complex character, but he's my favorite to write. we had a lot of bonding when i was trying to figure out how to write him, and now he (luckily_ comes quite easily. thanks for reviewing and reading this next fic!! yay!!!!!
NOW I REMEMBER! I wanted to say that I think that your writing is even better then JK's! I not trying to insult her in any way mind. Siriusly, ~SiriusandJamesLiveOn~
Author's Response: AHHHHHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! oh my goodness!!!!! i am HONORED!!!!! oh, im blushing like a mad(wo)man right now!!!! AND im going to respond to the super review before this, but i cant now coz i'm doing work! BUT THANK YOU in advance!!! ohhhh i dont deserve all this!!
I love this story soooooo much! It is superbly done and I think, that if JK will give you permisson, you should try and get it published. This is the best story i've read that had ANYTHING to do with HP. I'm Sirius! (well actually i'm not, Sirius is). But, anyways, I think this is (no offense to JK) even better then the real HP books. Several times during this story, i've had to pause and lat what you've written just sink in (I usually only have to do this when something is very well written). Because of aforsaid words in ()'s, I parctically had to pause in every paragraph. Throughout this story, i've had tears in my eyes (I do now in fact) and at the end of the book I was actually sobbing. You have portayed the Maruaders (and Lily) perfectly. You have done it as no one that i've read of (read their work I mean) has been able to do. You made it perfectly as I had expected it to be. In fact, if you would (PLEASE DO!) write stories for their other six years (I would be SOOOOOOO THRILLED, DELIGHTED, and whatever other happy adjectives that you can think of) I won't have to resot to starting a petition to get JK to do so. When i started reading this, you were at a three way tie for my fave fanfic about the marauders ever! No however, this story is a the top, then comes "The Ever Secret Diary of Sirius Black, and then "All in the Timing". This is done so magnifacintly that I just can't even describe it throughly. I mean, you had everything perfect! From how the Maruaders found out about Remus to the whole Lily and James thing (many have achieved getting down things like the whole them finding out about Remus thing down but you are the first that has portrayed the Lily and James thing with just the right amount of everything) to Sirius keeping an eye on James and Lily. You are the fist person so far to give such an accurate account of what happened with evrything that had to do with the Marauders. Okay, so maybe this isn't how JK would have planned it but this is how I deep down (even though I didn't know it until I read this) had planned it. I mean, everything ties together perfectly! PLEASEEEEEEE do the other six years!!! I could keep going on forever about this story but then, after all, I could finish writing this and have Mugglenet say that i've written to much and then I would have to keep on going back and rewriting this until I got everything that I wanted to say into just the right amount of words and that would be VERY boring. Not to mention that I wouldn't get to read all of your other stories and you (although i'm sure that people have asked you before but you haven't heard it from me yet) wouldn't be able to read my plea for the rest of "The Marauder Years" and then I wouldn't get to read and...and...well, you get the idea. So, now, in just a few, minutes anyway, I will end this review. But, first, your rating. Yes, yes I know they have a scale but I would prefer to use my own. So, without further ado my rating of you story (mind you, this could be almost as long as my review but, I promise that they are to defferent things) again, among other things, here is my rating of your story: Although as I said before, you have written the best HP thing that i've ever read and also the best fanfic, Marauders story etc..., My standards are very high and therefore you will not be recieving a 10 (though I would encourage you to write as you could, though I higly doubt it, get better) so, with that said here is my rating (again, among other things) for your story. I give you, a....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................100 BILLION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Along with...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................The 1st place award (we'll calls these the Maraudies, you know Emmy's Maraudies) for: 1.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE write the other 6 years!!! Siriusly, ~SiriusandJamesLiveOn~
