So I clicked on this one because of the summary - a mature account of the Marauder's final year at Hogwarts. There's so many Marauder's era fics out there which can be a bit light on detail and heavy on the teen-ish aspect.

I like that you seem to be fleshing out all of the marauders and their respective love interests. The scene with James and Lily discussing the Prefect's duties was fantastic (I have read a few fics where James just gallops in on a white horse and is awesome at being Head Boy.) Lily's digs at James were brilliant - the comment about leaving him with children (heh heh). And that you touched on the potential issue of Remus/James and the Head Boyship (love). I wonder if that will be cropping up?

I'm interested to see where you're going to be taking Peter - the comment about him being like Peter Campbell from Madman (love Madmen!) has me curious.

Ah, Sirius. He's one of my favourite characters and I love what you're doing with him.

(Your bell-bottoms, flower and jumpsuit references - Ah! I haven't actually read any Marauder- based fics that are authentically set in the 70s!)

Author's Response: Yay for a review!!

Well as I said in the the third chapter, this fic was originally going to be MUCH darker - lots of severe substance abuse. I didn't want to change the plot because I felt it was a very authentic chain of events considering how wild the 1970s were. However, I wanted to comply with HPFF rules so I toned it down ... and I'm glad I did. I'll still get to flesh out the boys' characters the way I want to. And I'm glad you like the bell-bottom and jumpsuit references! I wanted this fic to mirror Mad Men in that respect - if it's authentic enough, sometimes the humor comes from the cultural differences. Man, sometimes I wish I was born in the 60s/70s, I'm more than obsessed with those decades :)

While this fic is mostly centered around romance, it's still going to be a drama ... a touch of adventure but mostly a drama. The boys' romances are going to change them forever (some for better, some for worse). And that's all I'm going to say! Don't want to ruin things.

Thanks again for the review!!
