Really good story! :) Some spelling-mistakes here and there, but that doesn't really matter! Thanks for a great story so far :)Author's Response: Thaank you! I'm glad that you're liking it so far :) Report Review
I know you finished this a long time ago, but I just read the whole story, and it is truly the most beautifuly heartbreaking story I have read on this site. I swear I was going mental with the fact that Mary took so long to tell everyone about her dying, but when she actually died I just wanted to go back to the chapters with all the teenage drama and fighting. Thank you for the lovely read. I will now start on the other stories you've written. Report Review
:O sooo swoon worthy! and i think remus would be the best cookAuthor's Response: Excuse me whilst I imagine Remus cooking me a nice dinner... (I'm hungry, apparently) Report Review
Thankyou for this story. Its one of the first fan fics ive read, and im so glad i came upon it. It was everything a good story should be, nothing could be changed to make it more perfect. It was addictive and emotional, i cried through most of the end, but it was good. I know its been a while since you wrote this but i hope you are still writing, you have a talent.
Thankyou for sharing your talents and imagination, you deserve all the nominations (and wins if you got any)
10/10 relly isnt high enough to rate this. Brilliant story Report Review

I can't say much else but tell you that this may be my favorite fanfiction ever, and that it's the first that's made me cry. Thank you.Author's Response: Ack, thank you very much MagykNargle! You're absolutely lovely and eee loveyou :D Report Review
I LOVED reading from Remus' point of view. I think this was my favorite chapter so far, despite the horrid stuff happening. This might sound weird, but it was beautiful. I'm so sad that I'm almost done reading!Author's Response: I really enjoyed writing this chapter so I'm glad you like it! Thanks so much for reading and stuffs :D Report Review
If you were Mary, who would you tell first? I would tell Lily first, but I know that's not happening.
Who do you think Mary will tell first?
James. I dunno why, I've just got a feeling.
Who do you think will find out first (clue... minor character). :D Ehh... Miss McKinnon or Peter. I dunno. xD Report Review
This is really great and extremely interesting! I'll leave a longer review later; when I'm not up until all hours reading this awesomeness. ^^ Report Review

You're brilliant! Some of those insults that Sirius and Mary were throwing back and forth at each other were great!Author's Response: N'awhh, glad you liked them Moony_Lily! :) Report Review
gawd! i don't think i have ever cried so much in any story or novel i have read!! even if i did want, i couldn't help but let a few tears escape! the was so overwhelming and sad bt still, worth it! but i have to say, one amazing writer you are, making readers feel so much just through words...i might have read this story afetr a very long time of you writing it, but still wanted to leave a review, just so that you know...Author's Response: Hey there FroeverCharmed! It doesn't matter how long ago it was that I wrote this, I'm still thrilled every time someones says this story moved them. Thank you for this lovely review! :) Report Review
I cried so hard, this is so sad.Author's Response: I'm glad that it effected you :) Report Review
So, though I've read this story before, the only thing that I really remember about it is that I loved it and that it made me cry. So I've decided to read it again, and this time to review every chapter, since I only did that to a couple of them before. Sometimes I might not have a lot to say, but I figured anything was better than nothing, and it only takes a few minutes. So, chapter one: it's a good introduction. It sets the tone for the story and introduces the characters without saying "Hi, my name's Sally, I'm sixteen years old, I have blonde hair, and I'm going to give you a basic overview of my life, looks, and personality." It's much more interesting your way.Author's Response: Hello there AriPotter! I hope you enjoy rereading and I can't wait to see what you think! Thanks for coming back to reread :) Report Review
I specially logged in to review this chapter so feel loved ;)
I just finished this novel yesterday night at about one and let me tell - the last two chapters made sob (italicized). I cried my eyes out. I just wanted to say that this is so beautifully written. It's a perfect ending. Well, you know. When you're dead.
Your story is the first angst story i've read and after this i've decided to never read angst ever again. Yep. You're that good an author that your story got me reading angst and stopped me reading angst!
The point of this review is to say - you're amazing! :D Keep writing wonderful angst which i will probably never read because i'm just too emotional!Author's Response: I do indeed feel very loved! Thank you very much, Holly Mist :)
I'm not sure whether I should be pleased or ashamed that I've ruined angst for you forever. I assure you there's some great ones (and ones that have happier endings) but, wow, I'm so glad you liked it.
Thank you very much! :)

first, I would like to sarcastically thank you.
Thank you for taking up 4 days of my life.
Thank you for making me stay up till 3am reading your story, then getting 4 hours sleep.
Thank you for making me hate my bed because I have sat in it so long reading this story.
I would also like to thank you. Really thank you.
Thank you for telling me about death. Thank you for showing me even the most heartless of people are able to love. Thank you for showing me about sex, alcohol and being a teenager. Thank you for providing me with such an amazing story.
It is such an amazing story.
And you are such an amazing writer.
It doesn't even feel weird writing this because I know you know what I mean. This story has opened my eyes.
Just Thank you.Author's Response: First of all, I would just like to say a big capital letter THANK YOU.
I'd hate for anyone to think I take any single review for granted, because honestly this makes my day that my humble little words could make a difference to anyone. Honestly, thank you for telling me how this made you feel thank you thank you THANK YOU.

Ok hi! I normally don't review because I have nothing to say, but I just want you to know I cried. I didn't cry with Dobby, Dumbledore, Sirius, or even Fred, but you made me cry. you are a great author and I hope I can even be a smidgen as wonderful and successful as you are.Author's Response: Oh wow, MagicQuill, that is such a huge honour thank you so much you are lovely lovely lovely! Thank you. Honestly :D Report Review
THAT WAS beautiful. Thank you.Author's Response: Thank you! :) Report Review
I love Mary and Sirius both. I love how you have shown how Mary has grown and show that Sirius has, a well, serious, emotional isde to him. It is so amazing that, like any good (no amazing) book, I feel connected to the characters. I just read your A/N about writing a sequel about Lily because I'm so glad you did. The reason I read your book--yes I am considering it a published, outstanding book-- is because I was looking for the fan fiction Aimee Carter wrote about harry potter and I read the art of surviving first because I saw that it was nominated for a Dobby and then this one after. I know I'm rambling and you probably don't want to hear a random person keep rambling on and on, but I just wanted to say that I LOVE your stories as much as Sirius loves Mary, Mary loves Sirius, James loves Lily, and (in the art of surviving) Lily loves James. You are an awesome writer and you should keep writing more books. --your fan since about a week ago who practically never read fan-fiction before and think you are amazing (I know it sounds like I'm lesbian, but I promise I'm not) :) Report Review
I am honestly so without words right now I don't know what to do with myself. I have never ever in my life cried as hard while reading as I did with this. And that's coming from someone who loves The Book Thief, The Fault In Our Stars, and Deathly Hallows. Sirius Black is my favourite character of all time, and this couldn't have been more heartbreaking and amazing than it was. And just, your way with words is so freaking amazing, and I can truly say that during the two days it took me to read this, Mary McDonald have changed my view on things. You are fantastic, and thank you for breaking my heart.Author's Response: Oh wow, thank you for such a truly lovely compliment! Those are some amazing books and i probably won't ever get that comparison. You're great!
Thank you for letting me break your heart :)
