Summary: The year is 1977, and the Wizarding World is in turmoil, but it doesn't really know it yet. A set of young wizards and witches in their last year at Hogwarts are only just figuring out their places in the world around them. They fall in and out of love whilst pledging their lives to the only thing that truly matters: fighting the darkest force that has ever struck their world. This is the story of the wizards' lost generation.

Hey! great story there. Have you been inspired by The Life and Times? It seems really similar, I spotted it as soon as I read the prologue (that's a compliment :) Anyway, I like the way you write, it seems really smooth and coherent, and captivating at the same time, if that makes sense. I really like your characterization, even the OCs. I kind of miss Emma and I miss hearing about British soccer from her ;) I am not a big fan of Remus/Sirius, if this is where you want to take it, but it's okay I'll deal with it because I really enjoy reading your story. I can't wait for James and Lily to overcome the "shouting and fighting" phase to get to a more "talking and having fun together" phase but it's good that you're taking time to develop their relationship. The salt scene was bloody hilarious by the way. And I sort of pity Doc now, he's nice. See, you even make me like characters that I want to despise for merely existing. I can't wait for the next chapter, and the next Quidditch game, I always like reading about those :) It's also great that you included Peter in the story and the group dynamic. A lot of stories just ignore him or make him really ugly, stupid and/or plain transparent. I don't remember in which chapter it was, but I liked how you mentioned that he was always around the Marauder that had more power. I wish Lily would forget about Snape (and Dearborn) and stop being judgmental at James. Although it shows that she's far from being a Mary Sue so it makes her an even more interesting character. I also really like Mary. "I'm bleeding from my vagina" + Sirius's reaction = you mad genius, you made my love for Mary increase by at least 500% right then. I wish that would have happened in real life. I would have cried laughing. I probably have other things to say about your story but that's all I can come up with right now. I can't understand why you only have 5 reviews. Maybe it's because Mugglenet is not that popular? Or people are just mad and lazy? Maybe you should try to publish you story on Fanfiction.net as well (they're not paying me to say this I swear :) you'd probably get more viewers/reviewers. If you want to, that is.
Much love from Paris -Nadège.

Author's Response: Thank you so, so much for your reviews (here and on FF.net)! I sort of regret how obviously the prologue is inspired by TLAT—it wasn't on purpose, but I'd just read it and so it sort of happened? Mostly just the she did whatever/he did whatever, though. I'm glad you like the OCs! I was a little worried because there are so many of them (and so many canon characters without real personalities in the books), but I really like them. Emma is probably my favorite—don't worry, you haven't seen the last of her ;). Remus/Sirius is...well, I'll let you figure it out. I like Doc too! I didn't want to make Lily's boyfriend evil because I mean, what are the chances he would be? Anyway, thank you so much for your reviews. I hope you like what's to come!
