Summary: They are all talented, some more than others. Some play Quidditch. Others are known for their brilliance in academics. They are the Marauders and a group that has lain in the shadows up to now, called the Lady Firebrands, known for their hot tempers and rather subdued practical jokes.
Romance will bloom.
Rivalries will blossom.
The author will try to stop using so many bad plant puns.
The story of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs' NEWT years will be told.
These are the Amphibious Lizards.
Hello darling- very interesting and unique, I must say. Not sure why Lily would be thrown into prison for such a small offense, especially being just of age and still in school, and even more especially for three weeks. Promising start though- and the ending was very funny. Keep writing!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I shall.
Summary: Severus Snape had been brewing potions since he was eleven, and had never found one he hated more than Amortentia.
When Severus finds Amorentia brewing in Slughorn's classroom, he thinks of someone he didn't need a potion to remember.
This is a very powerful piece, you are to be commended. The song has always evoked a very strong sense of emotion in me, and putting it with this story is wonderful.
On a very minor note, perhaps just drawing out the last line a bit more, mentioning a "silence that, as ever, threatened to overwhelm him" or something along those lines would add more finality to the ending.
I liked that you made Lily forgive Snape, as I hadn't thought of that possibility, but the "umbrella" comment seemed a bit too short and simple for me, as I think Lily would've found something to say (being able to read him so well, and being so well-spoken in everything).
Great job, though. Keep writing!
Author's Response: Thanks! I know what you mean about the song - it\'s one of my favorites. And I know what you mean about the umbrella line, I wasn\'t quite sure what to have her say, and I definitely see your point of her saying more. Thank you for the lovely review, and I\'m glad you enjoyed this! =D
Summary: Draco hadn't counted on the other Weasley. Rated for one expletive. Warning: This probably doesn't feature the pairing you're expecting :P
Hello--I usually can't tolerate slash fiction because it pairs up characters that aren't homosexual, but this made me laugh out loud. Cheers! Very cute--definitely would work some more basic description in, but very nice job.
Author's Response: Hee, thank you! I actually had more description in the first draft of this, but it felt too lengthy, so I ended up cutting most of it out.
