hey, i'm sara, and i just adore harry potter! all seven books in the series are exquisite, and the fanfiction is generally pretty awesome too! some other favorite books of mine include: lord of the rings, pride and prejudice, wheel of time series, any books by shannon hale, terry pratchett, gerald morris or l.a. meyer, and many others that i'm inconveniently forgetting...
so, now that you know a little bit more about moi, i'll end by saying this little tid-bit: i love to read, i love to write and i love reviews. the three "r's". so how about i write, and you guys read and review, yes? great! oh, but please don't get angry at the three-month long gaps in between updates...
this is really good so far! you portrayed the characters really well, and it's nice to have a story begin in first year--lots start in seventh year, when all the "action" starts, but this explains in a good way why lily dislikes james. update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you, those were my reasons exactly for starting in the first year. I wanted to show how James and Lily came from such different backgrounds, and show how all the characters evolved as they got older. I'm glad you appreciate it! Keep checking for the next chapter, I e-mailed the staff cuz it's not posting ;( so hopefully they'll fix it!!
wow. this was excellent. the writing style was unique, but powerful. the story idea was good too, and one that i had never thought of too deeply. this is a wonderful piece, great job!
Author's Response: Thank you for everything! I\'m glad to see some feedback on my work.
very good story so far!!!! i can't wait for the next chapter, i need to find out what happens next!! jeez, though, lily is really being stubborn about james!!! anyway, great story, update soon, yadda, yadda, yadda. 1000000000/10
Author's Response: Wow thank you! Chapter 6 is stiiiiiilll in the queue...
i really like this! it's style is easy to read and really enjoyable! i don't usually read other character romance stories, but this one is really good so far. update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to take a chance on it, and for leaving such a positive review, thank you :)
interesting, i like it so far, but it is kinda confusing and short, but update soon, i would like to figure out what the story's about
wow, this was such as short chappie and a cliffie too! all i can say is, sirius can be really dense sometimes, but i guess he meant well. yay for lily, though! she finally realizes she likes him! whoopee!
OH MY GOD THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST STORY EVER!!!!!!! i seriously don't know if i can wait until january 2 til the update! by the way, merry christmas! i know i'm just a random stranger and a "merry christmas" doesn't really mean anything, but--whoops, i'm rambling. anyway, excellent story!
Author's Response: Thanx! And sorry, but you'll have to wait until January 2 because I don't even have the next chapter written yet! Plus, I want to get everything BETA'd. Merry Christmas to you, too! LoL. Don't worry, I can really ramble as well. Thanks again for the review! :)
oh my god!!!!!!! you cannot just leave us with a cliffie like that! that is insane! but so is this story--it's insanely good! i love everything about this story, so PLEASE update soon!
Author's Response: LOL! I\'ve a feeling I won\'t be very popular when the next chapter is up -- if you think this cliffie is bad...
wow, really good start, i like the dream scene! update soon, please.
Author's Response: Yes, my one and only dream scene. I so hoped someone would like it.
this is so cute! it was very good, i applaud you, and i loved that last bit about sirius having to do anything lily wants! that was great, especially "start boarding up for hurricane lily"! super job, 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
interesting idea. i can't really decide if i like it or not...i'm rather fond of the non-alternate universe l/j stories, but this is very well written and funny. in fact, i think i like it a lot. yes, i do. please update soon?
wow, this was a really powerful piece! the retelling of snape's love for lily was a bit too dramatic for me, but otherwise, it was well written and a good plot idea. the unsure ending especially was good, because you aren't sure if the order will accept snape, but it's not a cliffhanger, becuase you kind of intuitively know that they will. great job!
wonderful start! it's a very original story, and i like the idea of more than one author working on it at once. i can't wait to find out what happens next! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you! Thank you! You are our favourite kind of reader -- one who is kind enough to review! We have had a great deal of fun working on this together. Thanks again, Harriet Evans.
Author's Response: We like the idea of working with more than one author too! That way when things aren't working, we can blame it on Harriet, and when we're running behind schedule, we can blame it on Luna, and when the dragon is stubborn, they blame it on me. -- Poultrygeist
i really like this, i love your new writing style, and i'm glad lily is kinda ugly, lots of stories are so frustrating the way the say that beauty's not everything, but all the main characters are breath-takingly pretty. good job! update soon.
wow, this is really sad, but really good. it's thought provocative and interesting, and it really makes you feel sorry for sirius, and even a bit sympathetic for regulus! great job!
wow. this so SO so so cool! i love the idea, and i have no idea which reality is real, but i don't care! i need to read more! great job, this is a really unique idea.
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.

wow, this is a really awesome start! it's really new original and delightful, and i can't wait to find out what happens next! you have lovely writing, and you have to update soon!
Author's Response: Not to worry, I WILL update soon. I'm working on the next chapter. Actually, I'm having a growing love affair with my computer, and when I'm away from it I keep scribbling in English on paper sheets. Yes, even in classes. What a shame.
very excellent story so far! i loved this chapter, especially lily! porr remus, though! :( anyway, great job, update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! Remus will cheer up, don't worry! Glad to see you again!!
What's happening: It's their seventh year. James is desperate to get Lily, and, at the Hogwarts Express, promises to never ask her out again, and offers that the two become friends. When Lily accepts, James's spirits soar, but since she doesn't like him that way, and he can't ask her out, how will he ever have her for his own?
A special thanks to my sister Kitty and my best friend Emilea for listening to my ideas and reading the story in its entirety! Couldn't have done it without them!
And thanks to my new beta, Emily/LaneTechFreshie! You've been great!
Happy reading! :)
i love the serious sirius! it's siriusly cool! haha, sry, bad pun. anyway, great start, can't wait to see more!
Author's Response: thanks a lot! "siriusly cool"...good one! thanks for reviewing!
How could you leave off at such a cliffhanger????? UPDATE SOON!
Author's Response: I\'m sending the chapter in today! Thanks. =)
