|Reviews for beautiful contradictions|
| Of Roses and Lilies chapter 18 . 3/22/2014
It's so good to read such a realistic version of James and lily's falling in love. You wrote the two characters (as well as others like Sirius) perfectly. If anything, though, I would have loved if the story had much much more of Remus!

I really enjoyed reading this story. The characters seemed real and the story captured by interest. I was tempted to write a review in chapter 6, since that was the chapter that I felt really fit with the title but I wanted to wait and finish the story first. After that, there were so many places where the title "Beautiful Contradictions" really fit the story. I love all the contradictions, and all the flaws that the characters have, which is why I think their story seems so real and beautiful. Great job on writing such a beautiful interpretation of Lily and James. Originally I thought the ending fell flat, but after thinking about it, it was perfect because it had so much hope for the future and it was nice.

GOSH, THANK YOU FOR THIS FIC! :D
At first, I kinda hated it because of the first Jily interaction in the first chappie, but then I realized that whooooaaaa, it had to happen. So when it came to the sixth and the subsequent chappies, I was already a puddle of feels.
You are very cool. Thank you for this fic. :)

I believe that Lily and James died at the age of twenty-one so I'm not sure how they go through three years of author training, get married, have a baby, and after a year are murdered

This would be amazing in book form! Just reading it gives me that happy new couple feeling that I remember :)

I really loved this chapter. So many times in Jily ficus Lily can't seem to look beyond her own nose to see that James has changed. I meZn, what person stays exactly the same as they were at the age 11? Sirius May have been a little harsh but James is his brother, he and his family took him in after his family kicked him out and never judged, I can understand him being hostile towards Lily when she continues to judge and belittle James and who he is and then just showing up at his house.

Your story is the best thing that I have read on fanfiction, other than emblah01's story about PJO in Goode high school (if you like percy Jackson you should read it!) and that is my favourite story, and I have read it 34 times. Yes. I counted. Seriously though, I need to check out your other stuff, cos I love Harry potter, and books and fanfiction are my life. Seriously. And now I'm babbling. I don't even know what I'm writing, just that I thought your story was one of the cleverest stories I have read so far. I love the way it matches up! I just love it. It's brilliant! Ok, I need to put a full stop soon and sign off. But I love your story. One of the best I have ever read! Shutting up.

Quite good, although I don't really see why you called it "Romance/Humor" because it wasn't exactly funny...
Thanks for getting the personalities of James and Lily just about perfect and not making it overly dramatic or overly romantic.
Only thing is, I didn't really like the personalities of their parents. It's radically different from most of the other fanfics I've read, and I think I would have liked them better if they had been nicer.
But overall, thanks for writing this fantastic story! :)

Second time reading. This is brilliant story telling.

:'( 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
