This whole story is so perfect and Lily and James are EXACTLY how I imagined them in my head!Author's Response: Thank you so much, Fonzzx! So glad you liked it :D Report Review
i have stuck with your series since 2011 and i can succesfully say that your fics made me cry, when i finished reading the art of breathing. and i have never cried over any writing or the actual hp books or a heartwrenching youtube video. nothing. as a 14 yr old girl,who wants nothing more than to be a writer, you are a true inspiration. is this the last chapter btw?Author's Response: Nope, this is definitely not the last chapter! Still more to come. Thank you very much for sticking with me for two years and I'm so pleased to hear that I've inspired you :D Report Review
Hey, thought it was a great chapter. Loved the way Petunia knew so little of the mark on Snape's arm but still was worried. There is a side to Petunia that I find intriguing. I liked 'Voldermort' especially :)Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really glad you liked it. Voldermort came from an unfortunate misspelling of mine... oh dear. Thanks for reviewing :) Report Review
Is this the last chapter or are you going to write more?Author's Response: There's going to be more, don't worry! :) Report Review
I really love that you wrote about the love story between Lily and James. I think that if you wrote about the actual Harry Potter Series I would be too prejudice and not like your story very much. In addition, Your writing is really good. I cried more times than I can count while reading it. It is a great skill to be able to convey so much emotion with your writing. You should definitely consider publishing some of your work.Author's Response: Thank you very much Allie! Being a published book writer is my ultimate dream, really, so I'm working on it - I assure you! Thanks for such a lovely review. You're awesome :) Report Review
Omg no I'm so upset, I've spent the past three days reading The Art of Breathing constantly and now this, and I had no idea that it wasn't finished. This is absolutely brilliant, and a worthy sequel to my favourite fanfiction of all time. It's the perfect mix of me smiling until my face hurts and sobbing because ugh feelings. I have only one complaint about this, and that's the almost complete lack of Johnny. I woul love some talking between him and Lily. Just generally it's brilliant and updates are fabulous and wow you are so good at Sirius it makes me happy/depressed (Sirius always does that to me)Author's Response: Hi there Anna! Don't worry, this is going to be finished soon. Johnny... he keeps being in my plans and then JUST slipping out of chapters in my edits, but he'll make more of an appearance soon (because Lily is being a complete idiot by not talking to him). THank you for this lovely review! SO glad that you liked it :D Report Review
"How am I supposed to know if packing is a euphemism for sex or not?"
HAHHAHAHAHHAHA omg best quote ever 'wipes tears of laugher' that's bloody fantastic. I love Sirius' reactions to their 'mind games' omg.Author's Response: Ahha, Rex, that was my favourite quote of al time not gonna lie. thanks for the lovely review :) Report Review
omg I was just rereading this and I realized something that blew my mind, this is practically 1L of tears in Harry potter form xD slow death of young girl, breaks up with boyfriend with hardly any time to live, get back together and she dies, and SANGATSU KOKONOKA please tell me you know what that means and that this isn't coincidental, no flames I swear.Author's Response: I actually don't! I'm really sorry, but I don't understand the reference at all. Forgive me, Peterpan? :) Report Review
I'm back for more reviews!
What can I say? Fantastic as always. :)
Lily, you're such a drama queen! Well, what's new? I mean, of course she has a fair enough reason to be all moody. I'm madly shipping Jily by this point, though I'm also a huge fan of Sirius/Lily in your story too. Entirely platonic however, but I love when they have their heart to hearts.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, HELEN.

There was an amazing amount of James and Lily fluff in this chapter! Lily sure needed it with her less than stellar visit home. Thank you for the new chapter!Author's Response: I'm sure she's going to be in need of even more fluff after the continued visit home. Thanks Hope's Mom! Report Review

Is this the last chapter?? Or are we still going to 30?? Your doing so good, don't stop! But even if you do, this is a good stopping point. Incredible job.Author's Response: NOPE we're still going! Maybe not to 30, but there's still a lot of story to tell :) Report Review
I just... I don't understand.
How is it possible for you to write such lovely and humorous Sirius/Lily banter and then turn around and write such adorably cute James/Lily romance (they said I love you! They said I love you!!)? Although, I really don't know why I'm suprised by it anymore. You've already proven to me that you're a writing goddess.
It feels nice that Lily seems to be growing up (apart from her relationship with Petunia) and that she's managed to grow and learn from Mary and then move on. Which means she gets to focus on her relationship with James. Which makes me extremely happy because I love them so darn much.
You know, Sirius's question did bring up the query for me of when that's going to happen (as I'm assuming it eventually will). Oh Mr. and Mrs. Potter...
Spectacular chapter! Don't be shy in updating soon. I won't mind; I promise.

Another great chapter! Wow, because this chapter is, as you put it, 'full of fluffy goodness', I was worried that, at the end, there would be a heart wrenching break up scene or something like that! If there was... I'd never have forgiven you. ;)

Awesome chapter. Glad they're both doing well and ready to move on. Not sure I'm thrilled with truly putting Mary to rest, but they did need to begin living. Can't wait to read the next one.
MNFAuthor's Response: Thanks for being lovely as always MNF! I think Mary may be dragged out again at some points, as grief never does run smooth, but for now they need a respite :) Report Review
I'm loving this story, both as a sequel and in its own entirety: it handles the rise of Voldemort in such a convincing and sensitive way! Still miss Mary though... :(Author's Response: Thanks! I'm really glad that you like it!
I miss Mary too :) Report Review
BEAUTIMUS!!! Absolutely beautimus.
I love Lily and James. Jily is one of my OTPs (: Plus the way they interact is just so natural and loving that there is no way not to love them together. Author's Response: Hey Shay Gryff! So glad you liked it :D Report Review
When I saw there as another chapter, I was so excited as I love this story!
I loved Sirius in the library, he was just so funny! Poor Lily being asked that question you could tell that she was emabarrased. It was good cover up with Pince though, and I can see why she would love Remus!
I liked seeing Sirius more happy and relaxed, as he's been rather forlorn recently, so it was nice to see that he's slowly recovering. The fact that he's back to his annoying ways makes me wonder why Mary ever went out with him the first place.
I loved the James and Lily scene it was just so sweet and adorable, and I loved your portrayal of their relationship, as it's just so sweet and genuine:')
I liked the scene comparing their families, as it's just so funny to think that Vernon likes James as they're just polar opposites! Poor old Sirius being by himself, at least the Potters will help him out! Haha I loved seeing Remus with some humour, as he's always the more sombre character, so it was nice to see that you changed him;)
I really feel for Lily, it was all looking relatively good at home, besides her mother's drinking problem. Then the m bomb exploded, and Petunia seems even worse, and I was liking Vernon for once in this story, but my like for him has now disappeared.
Haha the disowened club what a great idea! Especially the line about the badges, I almost want to be disowned so I can join the club, as it does sound rather fun;D
Another amazing chapter, and I look forward to reading more! Kiana :D Report Review

I'm still crying over the other story and I read that months ago, possibly last year, that's how good you are.Author's Response: Julie! Thank you so much :D Report Review
The Art of Breathing was fantastic, I stayed up until 7:45am reading it (thank god for winter break!) It took me a day of Ben and Jerry's and crying (it handled terminal illness and the mix of emotions that come with it exceptionally well) to start reading this but I seriously can't get enough. Even just after the first chapter it's very intriguing, lily is a fascinating character. Coming from someone who honestly never ever thought they would be reading fan fiction, these stories are amazing and could really be written as an actual book. Report Review
When did this story update and how the heck did I miss it?
Late review is late. Again. I do this a lot. So sorry.
Apologies for not sounding very eloquent, but I'm well chuffed right now (I can't tell you how long I've wanted to use that term). This chapter was lovely and perfect in every way possible. Normally, I would expound upon how wonderful it was, but it was just so beautiful that I don't have words. I loved every bit of it. Flawless, my dear. Flawless.

Hello!! Great job, once again you have brought me to tears from both sadness and laughter, thou I'm not quite sure how they go together.
I really like Sirius. This has nothing to do with the fact that he is my favourite anyways, I just think he has a really good point.
Just because you miss someone doesn't mean you have to be consumed with grief forever; just because you aren't consumed with grief doesn't mean you don't miss them. It's okay to just miss them, because that's what they would want. They would want to be remembered, but not only the sadness of their passing. Mary especially wouldn't want to be remembered as "that dead girl", but as "that girl who had purple hair and was always being sarcastic"
wow... that got deep. OOPS ;) The point is, I really liked this chapter. (and the rest of them, of course)
GREAT JOB! UPDATE SOON :D
