That was great! The best thing I liked is that this one-shot has an ending, not a cliff-hanger that leaves you to think for yourself.

Summary: 6-year-old Sirius Black just wouldnít listen; he snuck into the family cellar despite being forbiddened to do so... A broken artifact brought about a chain of events thatíll bring us to a different world. Although most of the events stayed the same, his absence brought about some minor changes - now Sirius is in Harryís time.

This is a story that will reveal what will happen if the most mischievous of the Marauders joins forces with the ever-creative Weasley Twins. This is an epic tale that will reveal the mysterious myths and history of the Most Noble and Ancient House of Blacks. Be mystified, and roll over with laughter, as Sirius bumbled his way through his 1st year at Hogwarts in this alternate tale of the HP tradition.

great chapter! I absolutely love the Sirius you portray in your story! it's also very easy to read your story, which is also a big +! update soon!

Author's Response: Thanks. Iíll try to do but experiencing a few problems with writing Hagrid Ö This shows that Iíve been relying too much on betas to help me with this. Now am determined to do this on my own. Appreciate your review. ^_^

The first reviews for a chapter is always special :)


Summary: Meet James Potter, a clever, somewhat mischievous, popular student at Hogwarts. He takes every situation in stride and has everything under control, except one: Lily Evans, an amazingly beautiful and intelligent individual. He loves her more than anything, but she despises him more than anything, and a not-so-impressive run-in late at night with her leaves James thinking that chasing after Lily might be hopeless. Then, a series of events happen in James' life, which is topped off by an unexpected visitor that makes his sixth year too sweet to remember.

Great! Very interesting! You have a good style of writing....the only thing that bothers me is the relationship between the Marauders...but, I suppose, that's what makes your story unique! :)

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for the great review! It's awesome to get such good feedback! Thanks for the "unique" comment too! It's great stuff!


Forever Yours by harry_potter_star
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 872]

Okay. Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay

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.

Wolf's Bane by Cherry and Phoenix Feather
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 146]

Summary: All his life, Remus has known one thing: Love is not his friend. Love is the enemy for someone like him, which is why he denies it to himself. However, that denial could prove fatal as he and the woman he loves are sent on a mission that risks everything.

A/N: Rated 6th-7th years for later chapters (violence, mostly, but concepts that kids can't comprehend, like noble sacrifice and possibly some sexual content).

Wonderful! I was listening to a sad song at the moment, and it was kinda hard to finish reading it cause of the lump in my throat. Very emotional; I love how you phrased everything and which memories you picked. It's also great that Dobby didn't have memories of only Harry, whom he adores, but people like Remus, Ginny, Fred and George, and especially Winky. Also, I liked the fact that you actually didn't have any descendants of Order members in Hogwarts, but only new people. In fact, that only mention of old times was the Weasley Wander, and that's great! Well, all I can do is repeat myself now -- twas great! :)) Thanks!


The Art of the Quill by Pussycat123
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 118]

Loved this! It was great how you had action as well as notes, and great (I'm repeating myself) that the notes didn't involve only James and Lily, but everyone else. You could see everybody's character through the way they wrote, and loved how you made it a story...My advice (which will probably be emt with screams of 'how dare you?!' and the such..) -- don't write a sequal, keep this a one-shot. That's the whole point that makes this special...Just an episode in the life of the Marauders and Lily and Co. ...:))

Author's Response: Thank you for leaving such a long review! I agree about the sequel thing, which is why I'm not going to write one. As I've said. I am so glad you liked it, and so glad you agree about keeping this a one-shot, as that's all this ever will be.

I loved this. It's great to see a story where the Black brothers are actually friends, and, however weird this may sound, actually brothers. I liked how you portrayed Regulus feeling sorry for his loss of Sirius, but not sorry if Sirius comes to kill him. In fact, I think he hopes it'd be Sirius...I'm saying obviuos things, ain't I? Ah, well, gotta get them out sometimes... Probably the only things that caught my eye were some of the sentences starting with "because".. I mean, the ones where you explain that Mrs.Black was already becoming mad and everything. Maybe I'm being picky, maybe it's my mood, but I just decided to tell you that it kinda irritated me. Other than that little miserable thing that only an idiot like me would notice, this is perfect! In-character and in-depth! Repeat - love it! Waiting for more of your writing...

I usually don't read R/S, cause I don't support it, but I had to read this, cause you're the author. :) I must admit this is great! Very beautifully written, and you play on the feelings of the reader. I can see what Remus and Sirius and Tonks felt and everything. The part where you say that Harry found a spell was kind of unexpected for me, cause before that you describe emotions and everything, and kinda calmed me down, and then there's this action, so it shook me up. And yet I can't see any other way of writing it. Anyways, despite this, another great story and definitely going on my faves! :)) Keep up the good work! What about your other story, "The Crownless Again Shall Be King"? It is going to be continued any time soon?..Update either way! :)) Great job!

Simple and moving. Quite different from your other stories, where you use longer sentences, but I think it wouldn't have worked so well here. The simplicity is what, in my view, lifted it to a whole new height. All in all, simply great. :) Loved it.

To be honest, I needed to start reading this fic several times. The parallel between Icarus and Regulus (God, even their names sound alike) looked really interesting, but I understood that, with your fics, I need to sit down in silence and read and think. (That's a compliment.) :)

I can't cease to be amazed by your makes me know that I need to work. Also, I'm reading a book right now - Mikhail Bulgakov's The White Guard and I thought you might like it. Your styles are very much alike, and you might find his comparisons interesting. (Gag, I sound like a commercial.)

Anyways, this story is really an accomlishment. The whole idea, the way you characterize the people through the littlest of things, and the way you've managed to maintain 2nd person without making it seem awkward was great. Congratulations and thanks for another fascinating read. :))
