er...... nothing really. *sigh* I'm so boring.
*update* I am now not so incredibly boring!!! I've written a fan fic called 'But I do love you'!!! So I am now an "author". I feel special. :)
*update 2* And four years later, I'm back! I'm surprised I didn't mention this previously, but I'm in love with the Marauder Era and anything to do with it. I'm especially found of LIly/James fanfiction :D
Summary: One year that will change everything. Two relationships that are destined to happen. Three words that are bound to impact more than one person. Four boys that are determined to make their last year at Hogwarts as memorable and legendary as possible. Five pranks that will drive Severus Snape to do something he only ever dreamed about. Six years that James Potter has been chasing after a certain red-headed witch, will this finally be the lucky year? It’s going to be one hell of a seventh year for the Marauders.
Bleh, that potion does noooot sound tasty. I wouldn't want to be Snivellus. I liked Remus' wonder at how Snape could see past his nose, haha, it was a nice touch!
Silly Sirius and silly Nola. I definitely enjoyed how the DADA prof has a crush on Sirius. That guy has more female attention than he knows what to do with! I hope someone smacks some sense into them.
Author's Response: Can I just say that I love you and your reviews? Seriously (hmmm Siriusly?) I can't stop smiling haha. Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying the story and I'll be submitting the next chapter as soon as my other fic gets validated (...or declined *sobs*) You're lovely! :D
P.S. Great chapter and looking forward to the next one!
Summary: Severus Snape fell off his broom the first time he tried to fly. He had no natural talent, not like the loathsome Potter, and couldn't really see the point at all in Quidditch.
But then he saw Lily watching a certain Chaser play and suddenly flying becomes very important.
I am not JK Rowling and I know nothing about flying on a broomstick. This is all made up.
Thank you Natalie (thelastolympian) for beta'ing this story in its original form a whole year ago.
Aw, that was absolutely enjoyable! I thought your depiction of Snape was spot on and I laughed at his less-than-flattering thoughts of James. My favourite was "that obnoxious braying idiot Potter". Brilliant. I absolutely love James, so it's rare for me to be able to stomach insults that are flung at him. I could totally see James laughing like an idiot and being pompous -- I could also see how Snape's perspective acted as a lens for the reader. Because Lily can see a good side of Potter, and Snape is in love with Lily, it shows that Potter must be good, but Snape's jealousy of, and long-time feud with, James clouds his vision.
Loved it. Very well done :)
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm not a Snape fan - I'm a James/Lily shipper all the way - but I do like writing from his POV and it's good to threow some insults at old Prongsie once in a while - hee hee. Glad you liked the story - Carole
He returned with a quiet sadness and a surprising new responsibility to keep him focused. She returned with a misplaced bitterness and the matching position that forced them to work with one another. Yet fear, resentment, and stubborn arrogance kept pushing them apart, even when they were meant to be together.
Winner, Quicksilver Quill for Best Canon Romance. Thank you!!
Awwww.... I actually feel super bad for Sirius. I mean, sure, that was not a very nice spell, but he's druuunnnk and heartbroookkkeeennnn. Give him a break :( :(. At least let him sober up before you clobber him :( :( I wonder what's going to happen next! Super excited :)
*facepalm* omg Lily! Super frustratiiinnnggg. I loved how James was like "So you do like me! Great!" and then she was like, no, it just meant sexual attraction ... and he was all "even better!" haha, total guy response and I loooved it. I hope Sirus finds a way to redeem himself/is saved by the Hogwarts house elves or something. Poor bloke.
Yay for Sirius. Such a lovely lad, really. And omg that Harrison chick needs to caaaalm down. I liked how James was kind of falling for it/trying to not, pretty realistic :)
Awwww, I can't believe Lily used her conversation with Arlienne against Sirius :( low blow. She kind of rectified it a bit later though when she said Arlienne was worried about him. I feel so bad for Sirius . I think you've caught his character well -- impulsive and not really thinking things through.
Absolutely excellent. I love how you've built it up so far, with a mysterious event at Hogsmeade that made James a hero. I would write more in praise, but I want to rush on to the next chapter :)
Aw, yeah... Lily needs to loosen up... but it would be super irritating if the guy who'd always been an absolute prat started being weirdly decent. It'd be an adjustment.
I like how you didn't make James Quidditch captain and Head Boy. Most stories go for that, and while it makes sense, it also makes sense that that would be an overwhelming amount of responsibility, especially for a guy in grieving.
Good chapter! On to the next! :)
Ahhhh! They always catch each other at the WORST MOMENTS!! I have to say that I love that Avery's first name is Dante.. I can't remember if that's in the actual books, or not, but I love that name. A scoundrel like Avery doesn't deserve it, but nevertheless... haha, I'll stop droning on about that now... oops. Great chapter!! I like Cynthia a lot. She's a well imagined and believable character. I like that she and James sought some solace in one another.
I thoroughly enjoyed the wand duel between the two and how it played with the line between love and hate as well. I laughed out loud when the pig's curse hit Sirius. I really think Sirius and Lupin should just bash the two over the head, but then it wouldn't be nearly so much fun to watch the two try to figure out what's going on.
Great chapter :) on to the next! :)
My jaw seriously dropped when Lily slapped him. WOW. Even though he called her a hag... everything that preceded the hag remark was somewhat true--at least in how she's been acting towards him. You know your relationship with another person is bad when the headmaster steps in. You've written Dumbledore well, with his somewhat oddball wisdom :)
Loved the Quidditch through the Ages references throughout the game! Avery's an insufferable git. I hope James hexes him.
OMG... SO FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!! They were so close!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm hoping Mark was just being there for her as a friend, otherwise I will seriously jump into this story and freak out at the two of them, which is what I'm sure all their close friends want to do at this point.
