Aha! I am the one, the only, Alanna the Random! If you have the wonderous chance to talk to me, you will find that I go on tangents, so.... Prepare yourself. I lived in Cornwall, England, until I was five, then my family decided that they now wanted to live in America. So now I'm a 14 year old English accented girl living in upstate Mew York. Funny. I love humor fics, and I'll love ya if you could recommend a really funny one. I'm a beta reader, and have beta-d for a few fics. I'm HARRYHARRYHARRY (I know, it's REALLY original) on the beta boards, and PM me on there if you want to chat. I have to go try out for a play now *gulp* so Toodles From Alanna
Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
Awwww, how sweet. Both the end of this chappie and when the other love birds (Laurie and Isaac) had their first kiss. I've decided that this is a total refresh from the Lily/James Remus/Lily's friend Sirius/Lily's friend...ect. Can't wait for the mods to approve the next chappie. Can't wait. That's all I have to say now, so toodles from Alanna.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I am glad that it\'s original... sorta. :-)
I absolutly lurve this story! I demand that you get the next chapter up immediatly! :)
Claire, I swear that if I ever write a story that I think is good enough for Mugglenet(fat chance) I'm going to get you to beta. Assuming I do. Probably not. I hope you put Layla dearest back in there, trying to maybe hook Sirius. Or a new charrie. As long as it's totally awesome!
Author's Response: Haha. Thanks for loving it so. I\'ll tell Claire what you think about her being beta- she is a great gal. :-) However... I\'m not going to go through the trouble with having Lauryn try to hook Sirius. I mean... Sheesh. I\'m all ready TRYING to rewrite \"Boom, not Fizzle\" for Fanfiction b/c it\'s not quite up to par (not enough \'boom\'). I don\'t feel like doing it again. Sorry.
Summary: What happens when a spell backfires; turning James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter into girls? Plz R&R.
Wait... Didn't they hear Emily say the incantation? Kinda confused... But I lurve the story! Keep writing, please!
Summary: Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my
bonkers beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my evil and malicious extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I make a fool out of myself at every opportunity am unique?
Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of
cliquey lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the sarcastic cynic also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot? Of course not Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say. I have no idea how it happens It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!
Read this or I’ll curse you Read this and I’ll love you!
I'm hoping that you get the next chapter up Asap. This is one of my favorite series, along with the Janey legacy (woah! legacy is sooo going on my list of favorite words!) and A Few Detentions and a Story (another Lily/James fic. I lurve those.) I'm hoping that you get the next chappie up asap(wait....Did I menion that before!?) Also, as I'm distracted and on another tangent of mine, have you ever heard a person with an English accent say the name Claire? All my friends in the US say it sounds weird...By the way, The badges were a smashing idea. I suggest you have a flock of birds follow L.O.V.E. (minus the L, duh!) Really annoying birds. Incantation in book 6? When R and L come in on Hermione, then she gets ticked at him...Aah, the good 'ol days...Sorry, that was random! I'll review with the next chapter, if I remember. I hope I will. Well, ta ta!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, what a great review! The queue is very slow at the moment, so you may have to be patient I\'m afraid ... but as soon as my other MWPP fic is updated (\"Dear Conscience\") then I will put in the next chapter for this ... just keep your breath. As for the English accent thing ... um, I am English. So yes ... but it wouldn\'t sound weird for me. But, you know, when you say \"English accent\" you don\'t specify which, so I presume you mean the stereotyped one from TV ... which no one actually sounds like. Good job we also have a sense of humour, right? Good idea about the birds ... too bad that it\'s too late to slip that in (yes, I have finished this ... the queues really are that slow). Anyway, thanks for reviewing.
I belive I have mentioned before that I am infatuated (I love that word!) with this story, so I'll skip that part. I love that you've let "The Perfects" die down a bit, so you can center on other things instead of Lily's battle with them. I love how they are acting (I'm touched that they would start something like a in-House Unity thing!) and what they planned for the holidays. I'm glad that Lily has, at last, started to conquer her fear of equines. I'm glad that Iola would do that for her too. It's nice to know that she has a friend like that. And I adore how Sirius acts about partys. It may seem sad to you, but how you've portrayed the characters is too clase to my world. I must be Lily's twin and in love with Sirius. And I give you 50 Padfoot Points for this chapter. Ta ta,
Author's Response: Yay, fifty! What a great review this was ... thanks so much. I\'m glad you liked this chapter, I was really worried about how it would come across ... I didn\'t want it to be tactless. I\'m especially glad you like my Sirius ... because so do I! =D
Oh, wow. I can't belive that it's over. At least you have other series to blunt our pain, and overall distract us with ADD. (: I must say that I love Sirius as you've portrayed him. As I've mentioned before, it's true love *sigh*. Erm, what was I saying? A new HP trailer came on the TV.... Oh, I have to say that my favorite quote is:
“You know what would be so awesome?” asks Ophelia excitedly.
“If you could make chocolate into a gas form and then sniff it up like a drug?” asks Iola sarcastically. She is mostly ignored.
I just keep getting a mental image.... I have to say that my favorite scene is when Iola and Lily fall into the lake. It just sticks. Erm, my favorite chapter title has to be I Do Something Stupid. No One Is Surprised. It just fits me. I allways do something stupid, like riding my brothers minibike without a helmet through the woods, or switching places with my twin and prank her teachers..... My favorite chapter has to be #15, even though it means the end. Well, I love this soo much, I would love a sequel (if you can figure out how to make a good plot line to follow this fantabulus one) and I will read your new fic! Which is a Lily/James! Yay!

Author's Response: Lol, thanks, what an awesome review! The chocolate gas was something me and one of my brothers thought up ages ago... it would be awesome, no? =D Thanks for reviewing, I\'m really glad you enjoyed it!
In response to your response:
No, not the stereotyped accent, but the Cornwall-area one. That's where I'm from (even though I live in the US now).
I know, the quues are going as fast as snails. I put in my first poem a few days ago, ad it still isn't approved. Insane. well, I've got to go beg someone for a banner. Ta ta!
Author's Response: Ta ta! ....... Anyway. I wouldn\'t know about the Cornwall area, since I live in the Midlands, and have only been there on holiday. So, after all that, my answer is that I don\'t know. *Rolls eyes* I agree about the queues. Stupid queues. Oh well ...
Hey, it's me AGAIN, and I give you kudos on the great chapter. May I say the title is genius? It sounds like somethingn my friends would say to me. I almost always do something stupid. It should be a law. :) I'm glad that Iola and Lilly aren't going through a multi-chapter fight (Thank goodness! I would go insane waiting for the queues!) I'm glad Iola got to see her dad again-I know haw it feels to have a loved one die before you can make up. *sniffle* Hurry and get the next chapter up asap-I need to know what happens!
Author's Response: =D I\'ll do my best. I\'m sorry that you lost someone close to you, that\'s so sad. *huggles* I could never make Iola and Lily go through huge fights ... I\'m too much of a sucker for happy endings, I\'m afraid. Personally, I like the chapter title for this too ... it sounds a lot like me, as well ... I guess we have something in common. ;-)
Summary: Its a quiet sort of day in the Gryffindor common room. The Marauders decide to lighten things up with a little Truth or Dare. But, they think that's boring. They have their own version......
I love it. I totally and utterly love it. Gives me a few ideas for the next sleepover when we inevitably play...I can't wait 'till the next chapter is up, so HURRY! Ohh, you've made Sirius a sneaky one, trying to get out of a dare like that...Oh, an since I didn't review for the last chapter (I just started reading it today, allthough I put it on my favorites) I'm happy that you portrayed James as both simi-arrogent and sweet. Yay! Oh, and I give the chapter fifty Random points.

Author's Response: I\'m so happy you liked it! I\'m glad you got that bit, I wasn\'t sure if anyone would...Thanks for reviewing!
