This looks to be a very promising story and I hope you write more soon. My only question is why is Lily only starting her first year now if she is already 12?
Author's Response: Thanks! :) About Lily, I sort of put it like Hermione's situation. Hermione was also twelve when she went to Hogwarts, it just has to do with how late their birthdays are, and that's just how Lily's is. :)
