Review #1, by Juliette Good Day?

3rd February 2015:
This story (as well as TAOB) is wonderful. You write so well. Though, it is highly disappointing to be so immersed in a story that it seems to become your world and then... Where's the end? I need closure! This is the only downfall of FF sites...most ppl just give up. Other than that, I think you're writing is great!

Your story just makes sense. For some reason it fits prefectly in the lives of the marauders and Lily. I really like it, and I don't normally enjoy Lily/James fives:)

Hey, your story is AMAZING! I love it but its just that its sad and touching, but you CANNOT ABANDON this story. I read it like a few months ago, and I bookmarked it, hoping you would write a new chapter soon, but I guess I should just send you a howler. SO DO NOT ABANDON THIS STORY. I AM WARNING YOU, IF YOU PUT ANOTHER TOE OUT OF LINE, I AM COMING STRAIGHT TO YOU AND HEXING YOU BACK TO YOUR PRIMARY YEARS!!! DO NOT ABANDON THIS WONDERFUL PIECE OF MAGIC!!

Oh no. Poor Lily. Poor Sirius! Of course they are still getting over Mary's death, and then her dad died on top of it, oh goodness.

I like the change in James, you started it at the end of TAOB and it's expanded now, it makes it entirely plausible that the immature fifth-year we saw in OotP is Head Boy just over a year later.

I was wondering, do you absolutely plan on finishing this fic? I only ask cause I noticed it hasn't been updated in a while. I really want to read it but if there is a chance it's going to get abandoned, I wont, it bums me out too much!

Author's Response: Hi cath91! I've really enjoyed reading all your reviews and it's really lovely to have you here! It's honestly great that you've read TAOB and the beginning of TAOS and liked them!

I am definitely planning on finishing this fic! Things have been very weird for me over here. Without going into too much detail, I basically happened to do something very VERY productive for case of writing-career, freaked out about it gained the worst case of weriters block I've ever had. I'm working on it, though, and this story is SO nearly finished I promise you!

Review #20, by AlexFan Good Day?

I don't know whether to be extremely sad because James' dad died and I just want to bring him back to life to make James better, or whether to be angry because I just got dunked in all of this depressing stuff again or to laugh because Sirius was just really funny for someone who was in a situation where he could've died.

And I'm going to take a wild guess and say that James bought an engagement ring for Lily and that's what he's hiding but Lily's just too oblivious to notice.

My Jily senses are tingling as you can tell.

And what do you mean there's no happy ending?! Are you going to end this with Lily and James dying off, what's going to happen?! Now you're scaring me because I feel like my OTP and everyone else are just going to die. Is the plan for the story still 30 chapters or has that number lessened?

And finally, have you gotten tired of my constant reviews on this story?

Review #21, by AlexFan Comfort.

29th October 2013:
This chapter really got me thinking. Lily mentioned that she has nowhere to go and just about no resources to survive on her own. When you think about everything that she's been through, it's kind of amazing that she hasn't had a complete and total mental breakdown over this.

It's one thing to look at what's happened to her separately but when you jumble it all up into one big pile and add in that she can't get a job because of her blood status and the fact that whoever hires her will be targeted, it gets a bit much.

But I love that you discussed what would most likely happen after Hogwarts. And I'd just figured that Lily would stick around the Marauders since she'd practically become part of the group.

And James was right, she was asking for it when she kept pushing and pushing her family to the point that they would break. She shouldn't have expected much else to happen.

And the whole Vernon offering Holy Water and such was pretty funny. That's the first thing that his mind jumps to when he heard that's his fiancé's sister can do magic. I've never seem that reaction before from Vernon so it amused me greatly.

Review #22, by AlexFan Acceptance.

29th October 2013:
I love how even though a lot of them have family problems and are on the verge of being disowned or are, they still manage to make jokes about it. I thought the badges thing was kind of funny.

They could wear them whenever they had their secret meetings and talked about how much their families sucked.

And those puns were so darn cheesy but there's nothing like funny puns to make someone laugh. And oh my goodness, Liky dropped the love bomb. I'm surprised James didn't start throwing confetti or something. I feel like he would've prepared for that day or something.

And Lily is finally letting go and saying goodbye to Mary. I think Mary would a halt be really happy with everyone and the fact that they're moving on with their life. I can just imagine her watching everyone from heaven and being touched that she'd affected their life so much but then getting annoyed and rolling her eyes when no one moved on.

Review #23, by AlexFan Closure

28th October 2013:
Ladies and gents, Sirius is back! I haven't seen Sirius his happy or excited since the Art of Breathing. It's nice to have him back. And I'm glad that he and Lily have decided that its time to move on. You can't mourn someone forever but you can remember them all of your life.

The ending to James' speech though was brilliant. At first I thought he was going to get stunned or something and I was thinking something like "Dear God, you're asking for it."

I would've loved to have seen Sirius yell out Down with Voldemort. I can imagine that wouldn't have ended well but still, it would've been pretty awesome to see.

And I'm noticing that there's loads less angst and more fluff and cute moments and I don't know which I like more, the angst or the cute moments. And that's a big thing for me to debate over since I'm not the biggest fan of angst in the world.

Review #24, by AlexFan Forgotten.

28th October 2013:
Drunk James is adorable. Then again, James is always adorable but he's especially adorable when he's drunk because he sounds like a little kid and I was just aawing the entire time that he was asking Lily to stay with him.

Those two are going to be the death of me, I swear. Just to clarify though, did Sirius dump Joanna or did Joanna dump him? (And if she dumped him because of the Quidditch match, that's extremely petty of her).

Speaking of her, she's only the person that hasn't made me want to hit her, other than Mary, by associating or dating Sirius. It just felt wrong in other fanfiction but I don't have that problem this time.

I wonder what it really means when two people who know each other have the same patronus. We know that Snape's was a doe because of Lily but I want to know what the actual reason or definition of something like that is.

Review #25, by AlexFan Drifting.

27th October 2013:
I always love getting to the chapters where the characters realise that they're being butt heads. It gives me a chance to see them mature a little bit and realise that they were wrong.

I've gotta say though, Lily can be pretty awkward when it comes to confrontations sometimes. That conversation between her and Remus was very awkward. I guess no matter how you brought it up though, talking to someone about how they're a werewolf, it would be awkward in any way.
