Oh, and I really loved the whole thing where the wands shot sparks! I think I'm gonna use that! But don't worry, I'll give you all the credit ;). Great job! —Tash
Btw, the ending of that chapter was just amazing. Lily answered perfectly. I was almost crying! Please, please, PLEASE update soon! —Tash
Oh snap! Now I know why they're friends. That was the best chapter ever! It was so long, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait till the Ball! —Tash

SEE NOTE ON AUTHOR'S BIO REGARDING THE NEXT CHAPTER.
Haha! This is a really good story! Sorry, I don't have much to offer after the very first chapter...I'm sure I'll have more for the next one!
Author's Response: heyy natasha! i'm sorry i never responded 2 any of your reviews. i wasn't looking @ the right section of my review page on my account and had no idea i had new reviews! thx so much! it was difficult to start the story as i'd read so many j/l fics bfore. but i think it came out just to my specifications. :)
"Ooh, first names!" That was great. It's funny how Lily and her friends all seem to fall for the Marauders...I wonder why Remus and Sirius never got married! Oh well, at least Remus is with Tonks now...okay, getting sidetracked. I like this chapter, but I can't wait to get to the action! I'm sure there's some coming, so until then, great story!
Author's Response: a slash shipper huh? i was never really into slash. i prefer to read fics that have some evidence they'll happen in the actual books. predictions i guess. this was also an introductory chapter but for the girls. action soon to come......
This story is getting better and better every time you write a chapter! I really like this story. I have nothing but praise for it, so with that...til next review ;D.
Author's Response: thanks so much!!
Wonderful action! What is it with these Quidditch men...they're irresistable! Lol. Update soon!
Author's Response: god i no! my beta madam b kept wanting to hear more about sirius' quidditch toned chest, and i have 2 say i agree.........
Oh, I feel so special...I got mentioned in the A/N! lol. I loved this chapter. That was so sweet how James took Lily for a ride. And I love the commentator's comment: "And it looks like Captain Potter has collected a prize," smirked the commentator. That was great! You must update as soon as the Mod Holiday is over!!!!! —Jade
Author's Response: god, i how i hate mod holiday! but probably not as much as you because i know what happens in the next chapter! i love the idea of a two-person broomstick ride! happy holidays! Miss Radcliffe
Oh whoa! So does Joanne know that James is an Animagi and all that? Now we know what her theory is. Really, really good!
Author's Response: i couldn't wait with this chapter! i felt i'd given enough clues and wanted to get the ball rolling with this little plot bump as i call it. dun dun dun dun.....DUN! :)
I love how the boys didn't freak out about Joanne knowing their little secrets. I'm wondering if she's gonna tell Alex and Lily anyway...probly not. The scene with Alex and Sirius is really good! I love the scenery! I've always thought of the best place to have a kiss, and it's so wierd that that place sounded exactly like my day dream!!! You're psychic, lol.
Great, wondertastical job! —Tash
Author's Response: i loved writing that little fluff scene. when i wrote it, this chapter was my favorite. but now i'm writing chapter 15 so i can't say the same... i no it seems like the alexis/sirius thing is going a bit fast but they're likely to go the fastest out of all the relationships that are going to happen in this story b/c they've had so much experience.
Author's Response: i forgot to say that the scenery was exactly to my specifications of my dream place. i have a very special connection with alexis to say the least.
Oh so that's how Peter turned to the Dark Side. Lol, that sounded like Star Wars. Same gist I suppose. I would give you "inspiring suggestions", but I haven't read all the chapters yet, and it seems like you've written a lot of the chapters anyway, so there's not much I have to change. I think you've thought it out wonderfully! Better than any fic about Lily and James that I've tried to write :). 10/10 —Tash
Author's Response: thanks! i'm so honored! if you want, i'm open to betaing as long as they have the same kind of paragraph structure as my story. i knew i wanted to show how such a sweet and innocent little peter transformed to the traitor we all know and hate. so here's the first of his story.
Hahaha, the Pepper Imps scene was definitely the funniest so far! This is hilarious! I've run out of synonyms for great. ;D Tash
Author's Response: i loooooved the pepperimps 2. i was flipping through the mugglnet harry potter encyclopedia for a candy and this idea of steam coming out from someone's ears while they were makeing out just lol, popped into my head. that sounds weird but i guess it did!
Hello there. I was just reading over my reviews, and I saw that you'd said you were up to betaing. Because I love the way you write, I would gladly send my chapters in to you so you could read them and tell me what you think. Definitely let me know. My email is email@example.com. I'll be gone for a month as of sunday, but as soon as I get back, I'll write if you're interested :). Talk to you later, love this fic ~Jade
Author's Response: i'll e-mail you soon. have fun on your trip!
Hey there! Sorry I didn't review sooner, but I've been busy writing my own fic :). Ok, my favorite part was : “Dare it is! I dare you… to streak through the common room shouting ‘All Hail King Sirius’. Go on.” I am not the only one in the world who knows what streaking is, YES!!! You don't know how many people don't know, it's sad, lol. I really, really love this chapter, it's hilarious. Gosh, you get such freedom at Hogwarts, I wish I could go there, haha. On to the next chapter —Tasha
Author's Response: streaking........lol. i wish i could say it was my idea but the streaking dare was my beta Madam Bones' idea. i needed another dare and wrote to all my betas for suggestions. she had the best one! gosh, i'd give up my current life to go to Hogwarts. talk about freedom!!!!
Wow. Just...wow. I think this is my favorite chapter so far. Just like what Sirius said and stuff. And Lils and her friends, that was great :). I see a lot of the stuff that goes on to us teens going on in this story, ya know? Anyway, I really, really like this chapter. Oh, and do you want us to tell you what should happen next? Or does our just telling you what we liked and loved enough? Just wondering. I'll give you both though :). I think the next chapter should contain more of everyone's feeling for eachother and everything, and something to do with the plot. Like a cliffhanger or something. Lol, I'm clueless ;D. Alright, update soon por favor! —Tasha
Author's Response: telling me what u liked and didn't like is great! chapters 12,13,14, and 15 are written. actually 15 has been written for about a month but i haven't had time to type it up! i need to make a major plot decision soon. i have the story planned out two ways and i have to decide which one i want. thanks so much for reviewing! i really appreciate your dedication. Miss Radcliffe
Hey! Re: Hogsmeade Weekend and First Names and a Plan Responses. That's so cool and oddly coincidental that we both thought of that as our dream kiss place, lol. And also...no, I'm not a slash shipper! I meant, I wonder why Remus never got married to a woman, and why Sirius didn't get married to a woman! That would just be wrong if they got together. Lol, sorry to confuse you. Update soon!
Author's Response: ooooook, totally understood. I'm working on validating 9 but it keeps deleting itself. currently, i submitted it for the 5th time and it hasn't deleted itself yet. it's officially in the queue. keep urfingers crossed! Miss Radcliffe
Aw, do I hear a very obvious attempt by a lovestruck girl to pretend she doesn't like the guy she's been crying about? Poor Joanne. I know how she feels. Lol. You're writing just keeps getting better and better, Miss Radcliffe. This chapter was lovely. Haha, I love how Lily keeps talking about the ball even though James is trying to talk to her. Sounds like something I would do... heehee. Okay, I'm gonna go read the next chapter :)...
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I love doing scenes where there\'s two things happening at once and they keep switching off. There will definitely be more of those in future chapters! Miss Radcliffe~
Eeheeheehee! James bought the necklace for Lily! Lol. Dude, there's something about emeralds and Lily, they just go together. I liked this chapter a lot! Alexis and Sirius remind me of two of my friends who are going out right now. They act exactly like Sirius and Alex do, lmao. But yeah, I really loved this chapter. You know me. Alright, take care, Miss Radcliffe! I'll talk to you soon.
Author's Response: I\'m glad Alexis and Sirius are a believeable couple and that you enjoy my writing! I\'m currently editing chapter 14 and it should be up in a week or two. Thanks so much! Miss Radcliffe~
