I have indefinetely retired from Mugglenet and fanfiction, but sincerely thank all those you read and reviewed my stories.
Brilliant! Please keep writing, this story is so good! Are you going to update soon??
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! I'll try to update soon, but it'll probably be in January. Thanks for the sweet review! =)
I'm glad this is getting sorted out between Ron and Hermione. Your chapters are so short! Will you right a longer one?
Author's Response: I think that my 7th and 8th chapters are longer, so yes, there will be longer ones to come. Serious ones, but longer ones... Thanks for the review! =) --RP
Lily, Ginny? Confused! But this is a really unique story, and I think that I may go crazy if I don't figure it out. I think that the Hogwarts one is real, and the curse he used on Voldemort had some sort of side effect of the caster and now he's got to deal with it.
Wow that was um...intersting. Definently not one of my favorites... I prefered your other stories, it's a good story and all but I just can't imagine no Hogwarts.
Author's Response: well this is just the prologe....you know a bit of a teaser.....I never said there was no Hogwarts.....your just going to have to wait and see whats going on....
I thought this was wonderful! Everyone was so in character, especially Luna! This was a very heartwarming piece, and oh...darn, I forgot the word...motivating! That's it! This was very motivating and gave the feel of traveling from despair to happiness. I would have liked to see a bit more on the emotions, it would have extended the lenght a bit. But still, it was a wonderful fic!
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.

I loved the intro. It really set the mood of the house which we soon after traveled into.
I really feel everything that Sirius is feeling. I'm telling you, I wanted to bash Mrs. Black's face in when she stole Sirius' letter, it made me so angry that she would do something like that. And with Regulas, I can totally relate. Blows to my brother's face usually get me in a spot of trouble, too.
I like the way you portrayed Sirius' dad. I pictured him a bit like that too. Not exactly loving towards Sirius, but hardly as horrid as his mother.
I liked the ending to the chapter, I'm assuming it might be Sirius?
Author's Response: Hooray, another reader!! And one who gives good long reviews, too!!... Yes, it\'s Sirius, as you may know it by now -- maybe you moved on to the next chapter already :) . I\'m very happy you liked the way I wrote Mr. Black... I wasn\'t too sure about him, but I didn\'t want to make him all mean and cruel like his mother... a bit too easy...
Your review makes me really happy. It\'s great to have readers telling you that they could feel everything the characters were feeling! I hope you can still \'feel\' them in the rest of the story. Thanks for the great review!
Just a bit confused about something. You mentioned that the Blacks thought that Quidditch was below them, but they have brooms and a semi-Quidditch pitch in the backyard, just wondering why.
Poor Sirius, I can just guess what's going to happen to him. [/cringe]
Author's Response: His mother thinks Quidditch is below them -- the competition is below them, at least -- but brooms being a major magical way to travel, Sirius is to know how to fly perfectly. Hence the brooms and the backyard. As for the hoops, they must have been there before Mrs. Black\'s time, and she was too infatuated with her beloved ancestors to dare remove them... maybe... I didn\'t give those hoops a lot of thought... Shame on me...
PS: Hundredth review! :D
I really like this story. Since we see the Maruader's through their years, their characters later in life will be explained. I think you've characterized the characters perfectly. I can't wait to see LIly!
Author's Response: Ah... At least I\'ll TRY to explain their characters! As for Lily, we catch a glimpse of her in the next chapter... and we see quite a lot of her in the chapter after that... OK, now I let you read.
I thought the Ron slip up was really quite funny. I Can't wait to see the next few chapters come out!
It's a bit slow, but can tell once you get into it, it will be a really good story!
Oh that was so adorable. Hermione could see the door because she really was a witch...or was going to be one.
Author's Response: Yup. One of my clever moments! Thank you! Loves xx
Well I think I have it figured out. Voldemort is sending Snape(pure evil Dumbledore murderer) after Ron and Hermione, but not Ginny. Can't wait to see if I have guessed right.
Author's Response: Hmm....interesting. I wonder if I should try that out. ;)
Shivers went down my spine as I read this. There was heart written in this story, so much of it. Maybe one day, mistakes will be forgotten and they will come together once again...maybe some day.
Author's Response: Maybe, maybe, maybe. Maybe I will write a sequel to this! Come to think of it, it's quite a good idea. I will write about their lives after that. If more problems came up, or if they lived happily ever after. Who knows? Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Just as Pandapan said, James was seeker in the movie, but they got it wrong, in the book he is a chaser, so you may want to edit that...but all in all, good chapter, I like how you portrayed Remus as a good friend of James instead of a backround to Sirius, like many stories do.
Author's Response: oh, you smartie-pants readers!! What would I do w/o you??? I fixed it, thanks for the good edit and eagle eyes. Well, I think that James and Sirius were the "flashier" pair in their group of friends, but everyone needs a friend like Lupin - thoughtful, quiet, unassuming.
Grimmauld Place...to find the big giant locket that nobody could open?
Author's Response: Hmmm. P'rhaps, my friend, P'rhaps! Keep on readin' away! ;-)
I definently think that it was Rita Skeeter. This sounds just like the thing in the 4th book. Finding out info that they have told no one, seemingly talking to no one...but they acually were talking. Yep, definently Rita Skeeter! Love it! Can't wait to see Harry beat up Scrimgeour! (Sorry, about that, i just think the minister should get what he deserves!)
Author's Response: Well, I think I wrote a note to HotCricket above, that Rita's certainly going to be a suspect...but, there's no definite proof (at least not yet) that it's her. Case in point, if she can be an unrecorded Animagus, as well as the Marauders, for years, doesn't it follow that there's probably others out there, too? ;-)
Awsome chapter! What does the rhyme really mean? Can't wait to get down to the horcrux hunting. And if Ginny knew what Harry was thinking wouldn't that be Legimency not occlumency?
Author's Response: D'oh! You are right! My error! Gosh, you readers are GOOD!! I will research that rhyme and get back to you...something similar to what I wrote I believe, but I used it to my own purposes! ;-)
Author's Response: Hello darling reader! You will be glad to know I made the edit as noted above, AND here's a bit of history regarding the little wedding rhyme: The rhyme originated in Victorian times although some of customs referred in it are much older. "Something old" represents the couple's friends who will hopefully remain close during the marriage. Traditionally this was old garter which given to the bride by a happily married woman in the hope that her happiness in marriage would be passed on to the new bride. "Something new" symbolizes the newlyweds' happy and prosperous future. "Something borrowed" is often lent by the bride's family and is an item much valued by the family. The bride must return the item to ensure good luck. The custom of the bride wearing "something blue" originated in ancient Israel where the bride wore a blue ribbon in her hair to represent fidelity. The placing of a silver sixpence in the bride's shoe was to ensure wealth in the couples married life. Today some brides substitute a penny in their shoe during the ceremony as silver sixpences are less common.
Yeha, I never really thought about it... Why is Percy a Gryffindor? Well anywyays... great chapter, I love the way you potrayed Ron and Percy I think it was so in charecter. Can't wait to see what Percy knows. Until next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks...you know, I don't think JK does anything in her stories w/o knowing why she does it ~ so it stands to reason that she put Percy in Gryffindor with something in mind...I am trying to show it, somehow...
Yeah! Oh my gosh! So sweet and fluffy!
Author's Response: Yes, I felt myself growing fluffier and more starry-eyed even as I wrote it...thanks for reading!
Awwwww! Gosh, sometimes even oblibious gits can be sweet
Author's Response: I suppose even the thickest boys all learn a LITTLE something as they get older...we gals can hope, can't we?
