((I fear you will be lost to me forever, Peter.)) Awe... Peter Pan is one of those tales as old as time that tugs at that special place in our hearts - at least it does for me. The child-like joy and adventurous spirit that permeates the original story is what keeps me coming back to it over and over again, and you summed it up in one wistful sentence. I know your last line about Wendy shutting the window was really impactful, but for me the winner in this chaper is this whisper into the night. It's so sweet.
In fact, this whole chapter was a lovely view at Wendy's conflicting thoughts about growing up. I especially liked the part where she used the bow as a symbol of her whole life changing in a single day. Today, it is appropriate, tomorrow, when she's officially a lady, it is not.
((Wendy giggled, unable to imagine her elegant mother... before realizing her family was next to be called.)) The SPAG and pacing/flow of this chapter was really good overall but this one line popped out to me. It sounds incomplete in my mind. I feel like there was an implied 'stopping when she realized' because giggling at her father's teasing is inappropriate for the setting. If I'm looking into that the right way I wish it was written that way.
Like I said, it looked pretty impeccable to me so I had to nitpick.
I have to admit that I am upset with you about James. I don't always swing by the Peter Pan portion of this site but when I do I am a very firm Peter/Wendy shipper. I don't know if that is where this fic is headed or the ultimate role James plays but why did you have to make him so darn likeable? I mean, between liking Wendy's outburst and the way he keeps tugging those cute curls... I don't want to like the kid but you sure sold him to me. :) Indeed, characterization was a shining point throughout this chapter. The fatherly teasing, the 'sick' little boys bouncing on their beds, and that nervous tic James has around Mr. Darlington, you really made the characters shine.
Thanks for a darling chapter in a fandom I probably should peruse more often.

Gosh, it's been ages since I've read Peter Pan but you've brought the book flooding back! Nice job capturing the mood and style of the original story!
The way that you write Wendy really makes the entire chapter. She's absolutely perfect. You give us the perfect snapshot of how her life is changing. It's not an easy time in a girl's life and you've shown that beautifully.
This was a lovely chapter! I look forward to continuing! Thanks so much for this and well done!

Wow! Just utterly and completely wow! This is so amazing and beautifully written that even those first few chapters have me hooked. Everything from your style of writing to the characterization of Peter is absolutely perfect. But I see that it has been a very long time since you updated this. Have you abandoned it? I hope not. I hope that you find the inspiration to continue with this. It would be such a shame to see a story with so much potential die.

Yoooh! Why'd you have to stop here? :(
It's a good fic, I'll say that. Although, I imagined the characters from the 2003 Live action movie to be present instead of the Disney one, still, a great fic. Sad to see it not updated after a long time...
But just like Peter waited for Wendy (on other fics anyway), I shall endlessly wait for an update :')
