Proud to be British. But not after the World Cup, that was a disaster.
I tend to keep literary characters in my basement and anime characters in my attic.
If you read what I write, it would make me very happy indeed. If you leave a review, I will jump for joy.

Summary: An unexpected mission has Sirius teasing Remus about his standards--which leads Remus to do something even more unexpected. (Contains sexual innuendo--but with a title like that, what else would you expect?)
Wow :D This was really sweet and touching, and your Remus and Tonks just felt right. A brilliant job!
Author's Response: Yay! I I'm so very glad you said Remus and Tonks felt 'right'. I always put a lot of thought into the characters, otherwise the story seems flat. So, thank you so very much! :)
Summary: It is June 1976 and The Marauders are at the top of their game. From the outside they look to have everything.But appearances, as the saying goes, can be deceptive.
James is discovering that not everything in life is his for the taking. Sirius knows he will have to defy his formidable family. Remus lives in constant fear of his life beyond Hogwarts. As for Peter... Well, Peter is struggling to live up to his friends.
The ties of friendship are strong, but war is raging and with a dark power rising those ties will inevitably fray.
Added to the mix is an adversary called Severus Snape, some lost House Points, a prank or two and a whole lot of Lily.
This is a Marauder tale.
This is a story of what made them special.
This is a story of why it started to go wrong for The Lions of Gryffindor.
OH MY GOOD GODRIC! Lions of Gryffindor won the 2009 QSQ for Best Marauders' Era Story. Amazed and incredibly grateful to those who nominated, judged and have beta'd this fic. THANK YOU.
Trick or Treat!
3. She clicks on her mouse and swipes her wand;
Some stories go up, and some stories are gone.
Stories of her own? Why, she has plenty!
Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.
I've just sat down and read the whole of this fic - and it's amazing! The characterisation is perfect, the plot is exciting and original, and the emotions are raw and realistic.
I especially like the interactions between Lily and Snape - too many fics portray the spilt in their relationship as Lily pettily refusing to be his friend, but your fic really shows how much Lily misses Snape and regrets their - for want of a better term - 'break-up'.
I also LOVE your Sirius :') He's adorable and yet, complex. A wonderful job!
I shall be eagerly waiting the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. I'm glad you liked the Lily/Snape bits because I think there would always be some lingering regret for her. She had to break from him, but he had been important. Glad you like Sirius too. He makes me smile. ~Carole~
