All's fair in love and war
Lily thinks herself too clever to fall for James Potters charm. Yet, as the two of them are appointed Head Boy and Girl, will Lily regret her negative feelings towards James? Pre-HBP
I actually like the beginning chapters--I think it is a very origanal way to start. I also think that you lay out a couple of important details in this chapter--like the fact that James feels the need to protect his friends (Mooney v. Snape). James seems emotionally aware, if you know what I mean. He seems to interpret Lily's feeling and reactions quite well. Can't wait for the rest of the story!
Action--hooray! I like Lily's minor freak-out, and the way James and Sirius jump right into the middle of everything. Next chapter...
"Life in the wizarding world was nothing short of complicated."
I like this chapter. My only crit--why would the death eaters not plan for the anti-apparation spell? I would think the train already had this precaution, so an incedant like this didn't occur. Anyway...
I realize you just don't want to mull over the death eater scene, but I have a hard time believing that James and LIly are the only two worried about what just happened. Just a minor thing. Besides that, excellant chapter. I like that you introduced some new characters, and further develped Sirius with the Mac scene.
“You made a Marauder the Head Boy? Have you gone mad Dumbledore?” Oleander said, sticking it’s head out to get a better look.
No crit--wonderful chapter! :-)
She heard the Portrait Hole open and James came in with his Quidditch robes on, soaking wet. It must have started to rain and he hadn’t stopped practice. Stupid git, she thought.
The 'stupid git' part made me laugh.
I like the reactions--especially Lily's when James is right about her. Excellant, as always!
I read and reread this story a long time ago--it is one of my favorites. Now I finally have the ability to review it! So...in case you still care...
I think the quote at the beginning of this chapter fits Lily's personality well. I also like the way you started the chapter with a bit of backround (and Lily's feelings on it), and ended with the present. Very cool.
I give this entire story (kind of ahead of time) an 11/10! :-)
Summary: It's Lily's last year at Hogwarts, and she's determined to make it the best. But with Voldemort taking over everywhere, people are becoming distraught and friendships are breaking. Not to mention a certain someone just won't seem to give up on her. It seems like Lily just can't catch a break, and her friends and family are in danger...
Yah! So happy. Love the story, but you're right with the whole must-update-quicker thing. :-) No pressure.
Author's Response: Right. No pressure. lol. I\'m glad you liked it! ^_^
Summary: Harry receives a mysterious letter from ‘a friend’ confessing their kept secret feelings for him. Harry thinks he knows who sent the letter, but complications arise when he returns to Grimmauld place, the summer after 5th year. Will Harry finally get the woman of his dreams? Only if he is quick enough to figure out who she really is!
Harry can be so thick sometimes...
Author's Response: Can\'t we all though? :-)

READ AND REVIEW Its different from most Lily James stories but in a good believable way with lotz of flashbacks!!
Excellent! I like angry James--he is well portrayed. I also like that you don't make excuses for the young James' crudeness.

I like Ginny's personallity. I'll definatly read more! :-)
Author's Response: Yes yes yes. I love the cliffhangers!
Oh...Sirius in the next chapter!!! I think I miss him as much as Harry does. *sighs*
Hermione is back. The world would collapse without her, I think.
Author's Response: Haha, imagine the destruction of the world without her. Nobody would ever know anything! ;)
I love your writing style. It really seems like you put a lot of thought and work into each chapter. Keep 'em coming (although I have to catch up...you've posted chapter 47)
Author's Response: Thank you very much. The amount of planning that had to go into this was more than I ever imagined. I hope you continue to enjoy this.
Awww...Harry and Ginny are so cute together!
Author's Response: Aren\'t they! I loooove them!
Krum...that's cool. I wouldn't have thought of him, but it's a good choice.
I'm glad Ron isn't completly thickheaded.
Author's Response: Again, another favorite of mine. Ron of course, he had to snap back and be better than he was. Or something. . .;)
THE PROPHECY!!! don don don.
Love the chapter. Like the length.
Stay out of this, Cho!
Author's Response: Haha, yes, I had to bring it up. As for Cho, I like her still. Not in the books, but I do in this!
Ahh...dependable Dumbledore. Usually there when you need him!
Author's Response: Dumbledore, Dumbledore. How I miss him. :)
Ron is such a fun character.
Next chapter sounds sentimental. Can't wait! (not that I have to.)
Author's Response: I adore writing Ron. You can make him ridiculous and play off of him always blowing things out of proportion.
