:'( crying... so much crying throughout this entire fanfiction.
I really must admit: I never thought about Lily and James's parents' reactions, you know? I just always assumed they were okay with the relationship because we read about how Lily and James were the perfect couple, and how much they loved each other and Harry.
It's really interesting to have this take on it, so thank you for expanding my mind!
Funny story time! While reading your fanfiction, in the chapter the Testing is Over, when the head auror introduced himself as "head of the auror department", the thought went through my mind "... I thought Harry became Head of the Auror department...?" and then I realized I'm an idiot, and my mind was a little blown at the mix up of generations. (I read mostly Scorpius and Rose, so Harry is always the uncle). Just thought you should get a laugh!
Thanks again for a wonderful story

Wow. This story was quite the ride. I do love your characterization of James. I thought you wrote him brilliantly and you gave every character this indescribable depth. I typically stick to the much fluffier and lighter stories, but this was gripping from the very beginning and I was a goner, sucked in and enjoying every bit of it. You're incredibly talented and I hope you know that. Thank you for sharing this.

1) Your summary definitely hooked me into reading your story! A unique way to get readers.
2) I really liked this first chapter. I sort of like Gideon right now though. I don't know whether I want him to screw up or not Hmmm.
I can't wait to read more!

I understand EXACTLY what you mean about the fic being for you and you alone. I just wish that more people could understand. I really like it so far, although I do feel that Lily and James got together too quickly, and I would definitely rad it in book form.
I also wondered if you have any favorite fics that you would reccomend. I like longer canon L/J with the other Marauders. Thanks!

"When you want something, it consumes you in a way that's indescribable" sounds like something edward cullen would say - lool - amazing story soo far :)

I can't wait to read the rest of the fic :) the characters of James and lily are spot on. Also I can't wait to get to know Lily's friends and the other OCs. Loved the line about how they pulled out popcorn to watch the drama haha

This story is seriously jokes. Hands out one of the best fan fictions of lily and james. Awesome characterization, it is exactly as it's summary suggests- realistic and original. I simply loved the over all theme of the story, the backward times it is set in, the wonderful wizarding world you created. . . and James, OH MY GOD. His character was absolutely wonderful, he was smart,loyal and extremely sincere. His fights with lily were epically described, the build up in their magical relation was so smartly you write more fanfics:)

Hey Drowning Goldfish,
First of all, I appreciate your screen-name, very witty :) I really like the story thus far, I'm super intrigued by the relationship between James and Lily because in most of the other FanFictions they absolutely hate each other. Its nice to not have to read 12 chapters about them seething with anger for one another. Thirdly, the proper grammar is so refreshing! I am so bloody tired of reading stories with grammar that looks as if it were edited by a second grader. I don't know about you, but that irks me like nothing else after the very intensive English class I took this past year of school. Thank you so much for the story and I am excited to read the rest of it. I hope you are doing well and enjoying your writing; I know I certainly do.

First of all, I really enjoyed this story. You gave a portrayal of Lily that I found very interesting. Also, your portrayal of James' parents was one I'd never read before, so that was fascinating. It seems quite likely that James' parents would be so caught up in their work. The whole thing was as good as the summary promised, and I wish you would continue it.
Second of all, I don't know whether or not you care about flame reviews, but I know that they're never pleasant when I get them, so I just wanted to say that the reason I read your story was because of what the summary promised. I didn't find it boastful. I was just looking for a good LJ story, and yours promised that, so I read it. And it didn't disappoint. :)
