Thanking EVERYBODY EVER for the runner-up QSQ given to The Cause. Honestly. It was amazing. Both Marty and I thank you! (I'm sure Remus would as well, but I can't claim ownership of him). I would put the banner up but for some reason it's not working (stupid HTML).

Friendship, Love, and Pranks: The Story of the Marauders by Padfoot is MINE
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 1181]
Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!
They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...
The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again.
...let's make ours worth watching.
“You do know that if you told him any of this, he’d probably have a seizure of joy, and then his head would explode?”
Genius, I tell you. Comedic genius. Also, the bit about Sirius teaching the kids how to swear made me laugh as well. So funny! I love these fics. They always made me laugh, not like some, that just make you depressed. It has a great, light hearted, fun feel to it, I love it.
Author's Response: Thanks! I can\'t write anything really angsty or depressing without getting really depressed myself, so I avoid writing that kind of stuff.
Exactly the right amount of fluff, actually. You wouldn't want to overdo it ... it was just right. =D
I love it all. Particularly James. And Sirius. And Remus. And Peter. And ... oh, okay, just about everybody.
Yay! Looking forward to the next chapter already!
Author's Response: Hehe...thanks! Glad you liked it, because I do sometimes have fluff overdose problems.
Cool, fun chapter. There were a couple of mistakes though, but only very early on, and easy to correct ... I would just give it another quick proof read if I were you.
My favourite part was Agie's last letter to Lily, with the kleptomaniac, and the sun cream (ha!) and pronouncing the "eh" (which made me laugh, as I am often one to say things like "Why don't you leave you thoughts in a review? Eh? Eh? Eh?". It's my upbringing. =D)
Generally a very fun chapter, although Lily did seem a little overly mean. Still, you can't blame her, and I look forward to the next one!
Author's Response: I know, there\'s one sentence in there riddled with typos. I will go fix it ASAP. I seriously almost ate it (sunscreen) when I was younger, but my mom caught me in time. I never ACTUALLY got to taste it, but I can\'t imagine it being that great (or non-toxic). Lily\'s definitely very mean in this one, but I think it\'s mostly because the only side of her we really see is the \"stuck with Petunia all summer\" side. She\'ll act a lot more in character come the next chapter.
Oooh ... I look forward to the cracking up bit. And a break from the flangst. Because it's good, but ... yeah. I'd rather be laughing than thinking "grrrr .... why does James have to be fictional???" Although whatever comes next may have the same effect.
By the way, before I forget, during the letter from Jeremy, there's a break with Lily's thoughts in it (something along the lines of "Oh yeah, I forgot we had that fight") but it's still in italics, so it looks like part of the letter ... which is kind of confusing.
Apart from that, I don't think I found anything wrong with this chapter ... except that Lily and James are still being stupid (and I meant that in the nicest way possible). Can't wait till seventh year, when they can officially be together (according to the books, I presume that's why they're not already).
Anyway, can't think of much else to say ... it wasn't a very long chapter, after all. And I loved the title ... again. Looking forward to numero 23!
Author's Response: I love writing funny stuff! Except...when I get inspiration at the wrong times. WHY does it always happen during chemistry? Everyone thinks I\'m a psychopath there, because I randomly crack up when we\'re talking about manometers, or something dull like that. (Which I have a test on, an now know NOTHING about.) Oh, oopsie. I forgot about that diaologue in between J\'s letter. All my HTML randomly went missing in this one, so I just stuck it back in for thoughts and letters. Didn\'t read it over... Yes, Lily and James get together 7th year, but I probaly would have held it off anyway, assuming Lily still hated James 5th year. It takes time to go from hate to love, or whatever they\'ve got going on now. Sorry they\'re not longer. These last few chapters have been like neverending writer\'s block for me, though. I think I\'m over it. Why DOES James have to be fictional?? :(
Hey, I just read this whole thing (over the last three days, stuff kept interrupting) and so I got the shock of my life when I went to click the 'next' link and NOTHING WAS THERE.
It was horrible.
I like this fic. Especially the chapter names, they're great! Expecially this one, "why don't you go find a parade and rain on it?" just made me laugh so much. But, yeah, I have a thing about chapter names and stuff, I just really like them ... so it was great to read a fic with some creative ones!
I kind of hope we see a lot more Remus / Amber next year. They deserve a lot more storyline, if you ask me ... but I like S/A and L/J too! Also, Peter should get a girlfriend, that would be hilarious ... but also kind of sweet. I mean, even though he doesn't deserve to live and everything, I think he was pretty innocent during Hogwarts, so maybe he should have a weeny bit of happiness.
I hope you update soon! I really enjoyed this! Expecially the amnesia chapters, because they were funny (once we knew she'd be all right, of course) and I think the whole Jaeger thing was one of the most fantastic things I've ever seen.
You know, you're right. This review box really is sexy. I have lots of them too, in my various fics! [yes, I know that was low, hinting for reviews when I'm reviewing someone else's fic ... but c'mon, you know how much they rock, right?]
Author's Response: You know what\'s even better than reviews? Realy, really LONG reviews! Shyeah... I keep trying to write R/A, I do, but everytime I do, it\'s always so SICKENINGLY SWEET that I gag and have to take it out. I even wrote one for this chapter that was all right, but I couldn\'t find a place to fit it. Grrr. So now it\'s on my Y!Notepad looking for a home. It\'ll probably be in chapter 22, I hope. Peter should have a girlfriend, too. Again, I haven\'t found a good place to put him in as anything other than a Marauder. He\'s just so bland. Then again, it\'s my fault for making him that way... I do have a lot of fun writing chapter titles...I basically just sit here, in front of a blank screen, running ideas through my head until I go, \"HAHAHA!!!\" Er....that\'s always the one I pick. You know what\'s funny? Before I started writing, I would just read, and I\'d always wonder hy people were so obsessed with reviews. I always said I\'d never be obsessed with them like everyone else. Now look at me, eh? Anyway....thanks so much for your long review, and I\'m glad you liked the story!
Summary: James has always been totally commited to Lily. So when he stands her up, she brushes it off. But when it happens a second time, she begins to grow suspicious. Is James Potter, the love of her life, cheating on her? Or does he have something else up his sleeve?
Aw ... sweet. I liked it, though it would have been nicer longer ... but that's just me. Anyway, since you left me a nice review for L.O.V.E, I thought I'd return the favour and read something of yours. This seemed cute. ^_^
It just makes you want to cry that it doesn't end as happily as it should have done, though ... poor Lily ... poor James ... *sniff*.
Author's Response: Wow, thanks for reviewing! You\'re an author I really admire, and I\'m so glad you liked this.
Summary: Lily's revelation for her true feelings towards James.
Aw, this is so sweet! I found myself on your profile somehow, and saw no one had reviewed - But why not?? This is good!
Author's Response: Well, thanks! No one had reviewed because it was just put up. Thanks for the review, Pussycat123! --pp
Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
First of all, congratulations on the QSQ, which is, I'll admit, why I decided to read this (also when I saw how epicly long it was, because I was really in the mood for a fic that just kept on going! If that makes any sense at all ...)
Basically I really, really loved this! I thought it was so well written, and you'd made it so much more real than I ever could (I'm always a bit jealous of writers who can pull off drama and angst convincingly, and you certainly did, because there was just enough to make it realistic and captivating, but not enough to make it over the top and ridiculous). For example, as I'm sure many people have already said, but I'll say it again, Emma was truly a work of art, particularly in the epilogue, when you saw the direction her life had inevitably taken, and her relationship with Sirius, which in a perfect world would have been beautiful and could have saved her, but which circumstance had made something else entirely.
That being said, one of my favourite parts was still Sirius blindly insisting to McGonagall that Lily and James had eloped, because even in such a serious circumstance, he still made me laugh. =D
Thanks for writing such a great fic - I've really enjoyed reading it!
Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much! I completely understand what you mean about wanting to read a long fic -- sometimes I'm in the mood for one-shots and sometimes I want something epic and novel-y. I'm glad you decided to give this a chance and that you liked it! It's my "first born" baby as far as HP fanfiction goes, so I'm very attached to it. And yes, many people have admired Emma, and I have to admit that I'm rather attached to her too, so its good to know you liked her character! :) Thanks again.
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!
Hahaha ... Classic. I love it. I really do, it's brilliant!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Pussycat!
Summary: Book Two in the 'Lily' series, Nuttier Than A Fruitcake, portrays Lily's fifth year at Hogwarts, a time filled with hormones, confusion, and of course, run ins with the ever obnoxious, James Potter.
If you don't become the next Meg Cabot, I'll eat my Converse.
In other words, you outdid yourself, again, and this was even better than ... oh, I don't even know. I'm sure other reviewers have put into words what a ... what a ... what a brilliance you are, so I'll just agree with them.
Hahaha! Brilliant start! I loved it! Especially this bit ... Waltzing is basically the most important thing in a relationship next to screwing.”
I told you she was a dirty trollop. I really miss Hogwarts. I really, really do. No talk of waltzing or screwing there. Well, at least no talk of waltzing.
That made me laugh so hard! Anyway, it was a great start. Looking forward to chapter two!
Heh heh. This is great. I loved Holly being all clipboard-and-fake-glasses, it was classic. And also "I went and consoled the poor girl, handing her tissues and telling her about the time I saw Potter snogging a skrewt. I never actually saw Potter snogging a skrewt before, but well, I had a dream about it once and that must count for something." and "Little first years are going to whisper behind my back, sprouting off that I’m ‘that girl who stole the Snitch because she’s mad’." I don't even know why I find that one so funny ... (Ah, inexplicable humor wins again). Anyway, keep it up because its awesome!
... And he Turned Around Snobbily and Strutted Away by Mind_Over_Matter
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 63]
Summary: "Strutting around the place with his friends and admirers..." ~Professor Snape, PoA
There may be some reason behind Snape's words.
Ha ha. that was awesome! Ahem, I particularly liked this bit:
"So what if I’ve decided that today I’m going to play around with my style, and try strutting around the place surrounded by my dear friends,” he indicated Remus, Peter, Lily and Amy, “and, of course, my much valued admirers,” he indicated Sirius, who pulled a sarcastic face.
Heh heh. I love Sirius and James. They're so amazing. And also ... woo, Lily's friend shares my name!! That's always so uncanny ...
Yeah - they rock realistic humour\'s proverbial socks.
Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Remus is sick of the rumours.
Lupin's a fairy.
He's so quiet!
I hear that he and Sirius Black are 'together'...
He tries to sort out his thoughts, with the help of an unexpected visitor.
Hey, how come this only has two reviews? It was good! I liked it, especially that end comment. I always kind of thought that it was Sirius and James who were the tightest friends, but this way works just as well ... after all, the reason I love Marauder era so much is because you can expand on these things so much ... Good job anyway, I'll stop waffling now =D
Author's Response: Thanks! I really appreciate your kind words. I didn\'t say it in my fic, but Remus\' best friend is Sirius, and Sirius was quite close with Remus. But James and Sirius were better friends. I too believe that Sirius and James were the closest of the four. Thanks again for the review!
Summary: August 12, 1956
Everything’s running as per usual in the Prewett household, until young Fabian finds something – or, perhaps, someone – who proves to be the instrument of change.
This WON the ‘One-Shot Challenge: Muggle Artifacts’ *Is so proud* I can't believe it!
Artifact: Aerosol Can (insecticide)
SQUEEE!!! I loved this one, too. It was fabulous, and I'm definitely going to read the rest of the stories about the Prewetts later - you've got me hooked. Thankee! You're such a beautiful writer! And I loved Gucky, it was amazing how they all really believed in him, you know? Beautiful. Absolutely. You're wonderful.
Summary: Three-year-old Draco goes trick-or-treating for the first time. His mother takes the opportunity to teach him some lessons and Malfoy family values that she believes will be important to her son later in life. This depiction of Draco is VASTLY different from the version of him that I write in "The Dark Lord's Blog."
Ridiculously short one-shot.
Tee hee! Little Draco was corrupted from a very young age, I see. I really liked this, it was so much fun!
Draco wondered if it was a real spell.
I don't know why I liked that so much, but I really did! It was just kind of sweet, and three-year-old-ish. I like three-year-old Draco, he's kind of sweet in a brattish way. *Pats*
Anyway, I just thought I'd repay you for the fantabulous reviews you left me! *hugs* They made my day! Especially as I got them all in one go, because I've been deprived of internet this past week ... it's been torture. But still.
It was a great fic, even if it was so short...
Author's Response: Ha, thank you! I\'m a huge fan of your stories. Yeah, Draco as a little kid was so cute... too bad he couldn\'t stay that way!
Summary: 2008 QSQ Awards Runner-up for Best Post-Hogwarts
Harry defeated Voldemort. Harry married Ginny. Harry and Ginny had five children. Harry disappeared. My name is Lily Potter, and this is the story of what happened when my father returned after six years missing to find my mother about to re-marry. This is the story of myself, my crazy family, and most of all, this is the story of my parents and the man who tried to come between them. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
"Oh, I can so die happy now!" -Sirius Potter
Yay! *Happy dance* This was good. I liked it. And Dick is soooo evil *narrows eyes*. But I loved Ginny in this chapter, she was great! Back to her old self, it seems. And Harry, too. Wouldn't you just LOVE to have them as your parents?
Anyway, yeah, congratulations on the latest chapter, because I loved it! Lily is my favourite ... or maybe Sirius ... or Fred&George (as one) ... or Harry ... or ALL OF THEM!
I'm not hyper at all. Ahem.
Author's Response: You, hyper? Impossible! Thanks for the review and yes-- I would love them as my parents!!
Hey, I just read this all in one go, and it was great! The first Post Hogwarts fic I've ever read (although I've written some humour one-shots about Ron and Hermione's daughter, maybe you could check them out sometime? And yes, that was blatant and shameless advertising).
It was really good, all the characters are written so well! I can't write any of the main characters at all, so I've mostly steered clear, but you've done them really well, it's so believeable. I really liked it when Harry came back. I know that you were supposed to like it, but Lily's emotions rang so true (I know what it's like to be apart from a father you love, although my situation is completely different, and it certainly wasn't for six years ... I can only imagine poor Lily's feelings on that).
I also really like all her uncles, especially when Lily was confronting Dick (ha! I love that, "Uncle Fred calls him Dick", it makes me laugh so much) and she yelled out "Uncle George!", and he just came storming out of the house ... I could really envision that, it was so great.
I hope you update soon, I can't wait to find out what happens next!
Author's Response: It is hard to keep true to the amazing characters J.K. Rowling made for us, but I\'m glad you think I\'ve managed to do it! Thanks so much for the review.
What a great chapter! Talk about revolutionary ...
My favourite line was "It better damn well be part of a show" because it's the exact sort of thing I would say, and it made me smile. But the rest was great too!
I also loved the ending, the "It's all in the eyes" part, because you didn't explain it like you thought your reviewers wouldn't understand, it was subtle, and that's really important I think.
I love everything about this story, and I completely feel your pain with the whole coming to the end of it thing ... that's the WORST part of writing a fic. I find myself slowing down because I don't want to finish it! Although, in this case, I'd rather you updated as soon as you could. ;-D
Anyway, great chapter, possibly one of my favourites. Yay!
PS: I also love the "Sunny side up" thing, because it's so so true. I completely agree with Lily - you just HAVE to feel good about yourself.
Author's Response: Something you\'d say? That\'s something I\'d say! Thanks for the review, I\'m glad you liked the chapter, the subtle ending and the Sunny Side up part, (it IS true!)
December 3rd, 1980
It is a dark day for Gideon Prewett.
His fiancé has died at the hands of Voldemort’s followers. His brother has been missing for two weeks. Now, numbness and desperation are beginning to get the better of him, and the line between Right and Wrong is fading.
This was a story of the Gauntlet, third run.
Oh my cod. I know I said the others were tear jerkers, but I've actually just been sobbing - real, actual sobbing, and trust me, that takes a hell of a lot with something I know isn't real. In fact, the only time I can remember fiction actually making me cry is when I was reading Harry Potter five, when Sirius died. Oh my cod. I can't believe how much this made me cry! This was so amazing. So, so amazing. I hate reading anything dark, but this ... oh my cod. How did you do it? How did you write something so powerful? Impossible questions I'm sure. I just wanted you to know, although I'm not sure how well I've managed to word it, that this is so, so, amazing. It really is. I'm just babbling on, and it's not making any difference, I can't describe it.
Oh my cod.
I think I must be hormonal or something. Whatever my reasons for being so affected are, you're brilliance as a writer must be at the heart of it. Thank you so much. I had no idea something like this could make me react like this. Okay, I'm going to stop now. Gideon and Fabian were perfect in this chapter, and I mean that. Perfect.
Author's Response: Man, this story means so much to me I can\'t even bring myself to write much about it. \r\nI\'m not sure if that\'s incredibly meaningful or just pathetic...\r\nAnyway. Thank you for these reviews. Thank you infinitely much. You\'re awesome.
