I'm so happy you finally updated this story... I've been waiting forever :) I liked this chapter very much, but poor Miriam :( Keep writing because I can't wait to see how this story turns out!
I'm enjoying this story very much, and I'm so anxious to learn more about Theresa and her relationship with Sirius. You portray all of the canon characters in your story very well and all seem to be very in-character. This story has a great plotline and I can't wait to read more. Update soon! :)
Author's Response: Thank you. I think of this as primarily an action story, so the plot is very important. But I do try to make the characters\' relationships drive the plot.
This is a very interesting and unique story you've started here :) Clara seems to be a very realistic character, and she seems so normal that I forgot until the very end that she has leprosy. I'm also very eager to find out more about William and how Clara's and his relationship will come together. Update soon!
Author's Response: Yay! First review!
*cough* Anyways, thanks so much for your sweet review and encouraging words. I\'m so glad that you think Clara is realistic--that\'s one of my biggest concerns, keeping all my characters real. And you\'ll definitely be finding more about Will soon! =D The chapters are in alternating PoV. Chapter two is already in queue, so hopefully it\'ll be up soon. Thanks so much for your wonderful review!
Will seems very Slytherin-like; he's proud and not afraid to use others for his own needs, and he seems to have a little bit of pureblood mania in him ("It was despicable [living with lepers]."). Clara also seems to have some pride but is definitely not as arrogant as Will seems to be. Another great chapter, albeit short ;) Can't wait for another update when the queue reopens!
Author's Response: Ah yes, William. =] He\'s a rather unsavory type at first, isn\'t he? But don\'t worry--Clara will change him. ;] To some extent at least.
And yeah, I tend to write very short chapters. >.< *giggle* Thank you so much for your lovely review! I really appreciate it!
I really like your writing style. The way you introduced the Blacks in the beginning really gives a good impression as to how the wizarding world sees them and makes us feel the same way. I love Marauder era fics, and I can't wait for an update to this one :]
‘What do you want, Sev?’
‘I want you to walk with me.’
I think you really captured the relationship between Snape and Lily here as their friendship starts to deteriorate. I love your writing style :) Really nicely done!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! -hugs-
This is a collection of related one-shots about confusion over Muggle objects. An excerpt from the first chapter, A Contraceptive Controversy:
James Potter was quite brilliant, or at least he’d like to think so. He had some of the best grades in the sixth year- they would probably be the best if he did his homework regularly. The Marauder’s Map had been his idea- even if he wasn’t brilliant, the Map certainly was. He was also an animagus. An (illegal) animagus at sixteen was something brilliant indeed.
So if he was so brilliant, then why was he incapable of identifying the object before him?
It’s not like it was particularly complex: all it was was a little piece of rubber, really. There’s nothing complicated about that, is there? No, not at all.
Very funny! I love the last bit with Lily - classic! Can't wait for the next story!
