| Sirius-ly chapter 11 . 12/1/2018
I think the Lily and James thing came to suddenly. Like one second they are hardly friends, then after ONE KISS, they're madly in love and dating. Like WHAT?! I just wish you could have slowed things down a bit.

Okay, I know this was written nearly 12 years ago and the chances of you seeing this are slim, but I just wanted to say that this is the first fanfic I started reading and immediately liked it. Really! The characters are just like I imagine they're supposed to be. You did a great great job! :)))

So far, after only reading chapter one I must say that while I do really like your FanFiction so far, Lily is a bit ruder than I imagined her being. This is your FanFiction so you can make she act however you like!I do really it is so far though.

| InsaneWallaby chapter 1 . 4/5/2015
Hey I'm on the first chapter and decided to review every chapter:) So far it's good. For criticism you should make your sentences less choppy, and add descriptions... Like what does James look like? What is Lily thinking? But so far very good!

| Alishawndra chapter 43 . 1/4/2008
this was a really good story, i only read lily and james fanfics, but this wasn't really about any particular character it was about a war and what it did it people, i really liked that - i haven't seen many storys like that so it put a twist on your story. thank you for writing it. for some constructive criticism your story is very jumpy but the ideas are great.

Excellent story apart from the spelling mistakes, but no one is perfect. I think you should put some of seritha's stories in your C2 she also writes amazing Harry Potter fanfiction.
| x-mako-x chapter 41 . 12/6/2006
Courtney! How are you? That chapter was amazing! you know what? If i didnt know that you had wrote this story i would have seriously thought that J.K Rowling had wrote this! Iit is absolutely incredible. It is touching and emotional and it made me cry! And i only cry when i think a story is absolutely fantabulous and when a character dies in it. You should be very proud of your self. I hope to hear from you soon
| All Things Go chapter 8 . 11/27/2006

OMG I absolutley LOVE this story. I cried so hard these last few chapters. I know its been a while since last time I responded but I just couldn't stop myself to stop reading even to write a response. This has got to be the best ending that I have ever read (and I've read alot of endings) I mean the passion and the different point of views I mean it is just so overwelmingly wonderful that I'm still kinda out of it. I hope that you are not to dissapionted in me not replying to every chapter but again I just couldn't stop once I started reading! Also I LOVE how you portrayed everyone's own grief, Remus' exspecially. Hope all your other stories end up just like this too.

Sad! So, so sad Courtney…
You described everyone’s feelings and emotions perfectly. Remus is in complete shock; he lost all his friends and now he’s all alone in the world. Cadence is feeling guilty. And She doesn’t know what to believe, especially because she trusted in Sirius. She’s just like Remus, she’d lost Serena, Calli and now Lily… Alice is distraught and Frank is also sad.
I loved when you described when they all met for the first time, it was so sweet.
Hm, curious, who was in the graveyard and read Lily’s poem, was it Regulus Black?
I loved the poem and Harry will get his meaning when he reads it… in the sequel, I mean :).
OMG, so sad what happened to the Longbottoms. It was a very well written scene and so powerfull.
“With the ending of their lives, their shattered souls joined the fragments of their broken hearts.” Beautiful, beautiful line.
Poor Cady she just wanted to apologize to Sirius and tell him that she loved him. At least she fought back the dementors but it was so sad when she died. I wanted to cry.
“As a last bit of goodness, and hope died in the frozen purgatory of Azkaban, two more lives joined the broken and forgotten. It was the shattering of times before it really began...and only fragments were left to piece back the puzzle.”
This chapter was so amazingly sad, you described those dark times perfectly.
A wonderfully sad end to a wonderful story.
Thank you for writing it and I’m looking forward to the sequel ;). Until then I want you to know that thiss was one of he most beautiful stories I've ever read and it's ging to be in my memory forever.
