Little Lions by SexY_LydZ
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 48]

Summary:

On a stormy October evening, a letter, a late night trip to the library and a secret conversation lead Lily Evans to discover that there are several mysteries in her life that only she has the capability and the inclination to solve. The first mystery is James Potter – what could turn him from the arrogant, could-care-less boy that she had previously known to someone withdrawn and far away? Then, perhaps more troubling, there is Esther Collins, the fifth year who has vanished without a trace. Furthermore, one of Lily’s best friends, Izza, is seeing a mystery boy and Lily is determined to know who.

Then there is the threat of war, backstabbing friends and NEWT’s. A disinherited and emotionally battered Sirius Black is the source of heartache for his friends, except perhaps Izza, who, with her own terrifying family, might just understand him. Lily’s closest male friend, Remus Lupin, is hiding a dangerous secret from her. Peter’s girlfriend is screwing him over, and the whole time Lily is struggling to stop the people she loves from coming apart at the seams.

Great story so far!
I love how you've managed to add so much depth to the characters of Lily and the Marauders while staying true to what we know about them from the books. Too often in fics, they seem to become predictable caricatures, but in this story they come across as believable and multi-dimensional. I think Izza adds a lot to the story, too, and it was interesting to get a glimpse of her family and childhood in the last chapter. For an 'ice queen' with an unusual and mysterious past, she's surprisingly easy to relate to.
The plot twists you’ve thrown in (didn’t expect to like Vlad as much as I did, didn't see Diagon Alley coming) have me completely hooked, just like the first time I read the original books. Can't wait to find out what happens next :-)

Author's Response: Thank you much! I work hard to make sure I nail characterisation, so it's always awesome to hear that I'm doing a good job. Plenty more twists and turns to come, so keep reading :D
