I've sorta disappeared off the whole fanfiction scene, and I'm trying to get my brain to write something good...
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
I love how Lily's so stubborn. It's a great portrayl of the characters, and you definitly know how they would act! Keep Updating!
I LOVED this! The fighting and passion was just right, and you have Lily's uncertainty and James' feelings spot on! Great job!
Great Job! This has to be one of the only Harry/Ginny fics that I'm hooked on! I enjoy all the plot twists and your characterization of Ginny and the OC's. Nicely job so far. I'm wondering, how many chapters do you plan to do? And how far (as in time-wise) are you going to let the story go?
Wow! This was hilarious! Great story!
Author's Response: Glad to hear it!
For all of you who wanted an update, I have a proposition. You may or may not like it, but it's all I can offer.
Check review challenge for the last chapter. details there!
James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
Nice! I was a bit confused when you started out with Lily's first year, and then had her liking James. I personally liked this chapter the best, becuase it seems a bit more canon, and it is nicley plotted. I'm wondering, will you have Lily hate James by at least the 5th year? Otherwise, maybe we could see a bit more of Lily's friends, and maaybe a bit more chracterization. it seems that they are a bit bland, and are just there to fill up the story.
Nice job though!
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. I'd just like to say that I've had a bad day so far, and if what i write sounds rude, please dont take it as that, Im not trying to be. I really really really wish that people would stop thinking that because almost everybody writes Lily as a fiery little bitch, does not mean that that is cannon. That, my friend, is copying everyone else so your story doesn't look bad, or just assuming that because the majority wrote it like that means that's how she was. How about we take a listen yto what JK Rowling had to say, shall we? She said (well, all of her characters said) That Lily was the kindest person at hogwarts and that she didn't hate James!! can you see what I'm writing. Im not taking this out on you, trust me, more like a note to everyone reading this who wants to write a review sayin that Lily was supposed to hate James from her first year. Also, I'm sorry that you think my OCs are bland, I certainly wasn't aiming for that. Thanks again.
Wow! Funny! I loved how you had the trio switch, and Hermione was perfect. I can't wait to see what'll happen next!
Author's Response: yeay! thankkieess for your review!!!
oooh! Please update! It's great so far!
Author's Response: Chapter 5 is in the que! You guys'll love this chappie!
Yea! An update! Great job on this chapter! Lily's thoughts are perfect! Except I don't like cliffhangers.....
Author's Response: Oh sorry, I'll try to do it less...except i just love leaving you all in suspense! Sigh. I'm so evil I scare myself sometimes. Lol.
Messrs. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs -- These names are known by every person in Hogwarts. These names, and an envelope with a scarlet wax seal bearing the letters: MWPP.
The teachers dread it, the students revel in it...but who are these 'Marauders,' as they are called? That's just it. Nobody knows. Most every prank Hogwarts sees is at the hands of these mysterious Marauders, and the perpetrators always walk free. They could never be caught. You can’t catch phantoms.
Lily Evans is just as curious as the next student as to who these Marauders are, but her curiosity is transformed into a hungry need, when she receives a letter herself from a certain Mr. Prongs.
[This story is slightly AU, but more on that in the author's note at the end.]
This has to be one of the sweetest J/L stories ever! I loved it! And I love your style! Also, I like how your characterization isn't cliche and is real! Great story!
Author's Response: Thank you so much atkarid! I\'m very flattered to hear you say that you like my style for this story, because I think it is one of my stories where it is more defined than say Meant to Be or some of my old unpublished stuff. :)
I loved the ending line! Adding the little kids made the scene perfect! Great Job!
nice! I love the idea of harry potter with aim.. lol
Are you going to add more characters?
Author's Response: oh yes, many more. there are two whole stories so far...and the part that I posted last is the second part of Version I. Version II is also finished and ready to be posted, but I think I'm going to use that Voldie/Virus thingy in Version III, which isn't yet written!
Great Job! Really funny! I can't wait for another issue of Dear Dumbly! Do you think you could also have some of the teachers, some lesser known students, and ghosts write to Dumbledore? Wonderful Job so far! 10/10!
Author's Response: Thanks!! Yep, we'll be having some letters from teachers, one in the next chapter! We'll have one letter in particular from a lesser known student, but I don't think that will come until one of the later chapters!! Ooh, ghosts!! I didn't think of that!! I'll see what I can do!! Thank you!!
I loved this songfic! It blends so perfectly with the song, and all the flashbacks. It makes it sound more like a poem, sort of. I really liked it! Great Job!
Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review! I've never written a song fic so I was worried whether or not I could blend a story into a song...what a relief to know that I managed it!
The usual! I loved how you portrayed Lily's and James's relationship, rather than fighting so much like other people portray them. Good job on this chapter, and I can't wait to read the rest!
Nice job! This was an enjoyable read! I liked the part when Lavender was eating the apple. Maybe you could've put in some more Parvati/Apple time. Also, I think Ginny would've just said "...Harry" and not "...Harry Potter." Otherwise, great job!
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it.
Nice going so far! I'd like to see how this'll progress! I like how you've characterized Fred and George's character so far. Update ASAP!! =D
That was great! I loved how Lily played a prank against them! I wish this wasn't a one shot though, it has so much potential.....
Author's Response: Thank you, that's so sweet! I'm really grateful you took the time to read AND review this!
That last line just hurts your heart...
Beautifully written, and tremendously sad...
Author's Response: Thank you! You know, I think that\'s one of the nicest things I\'ve heard, about it hurting your heart, as that\'s really the effect I was going for - however cruel it sounds. Thanks for reviewing!
Wow! Great beginning chapter! The first part, already mentioned with the dash, was the only part with a little minor mistake.
Anyways, I liked your scene with Fred and George, along with Crookshanks. This is pretty good for your first fic! Just one little thing: you could've divided the chapter into two if you wanted to, ending right before the chess game. Otherwise, I enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! The scenes you mentioned were some of my favorites. It would be extremely easy to spread this story out over maybe 40 chapters, but then the poor readers have to wait. Besides, I like putting alot into one chapter...they're just longer that way. Thanks again for the great review!
Hi! Great story! I've only read a couple slash stories, and this is, by far, great! I love how you incorporate humor, and how all the OCs seem real! Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Well, for me it\'s ver important to incorporate humor, especially if it\'s a long story like this one. Thanks for the review! Chapter 9 won\'t take long, I promise.
