|Reviews for The Year of The Marauders|
| deanbranson chapter 10 . 4/22/2010
I am officially in love with this story.
Your story is one of the best stories I've read here that's set in the Marauder Era.
Poor Sirius! Is Alice ALICE? As in Alice who marries Frank? I completely didn't get the connection when I first started reading this!
I love the relationship all the Marauders have with each other. It's very . . . real. I love it. :)
I don't think James and Lily's relationship is going too fast at all. It's going at exactly the right speed. Although, I have to admit, I would have liked to have had some internal monalogue from Lily previous to the whole lake scene where she admits to herself that she likes James. Even if it was right before he asked her out. Just seemed a bit sudden when you think that before she was sort of like "Could I-? No, of course not" before and now she's hiding her face in his chest and kissing him etc. But whatever - that's just a personal preference. It wasn't like it was completely out of the blue - it was obvious to everyone she liked him so it's no big deal at all.
I love the way you portrayed Sirius and James in particular. They're pretty much what I imagine when I picture them in my head.
I so think it was Snape who was in the Forbidden Forest.
Please update soon :) I can't wait to read more of this!
I really hope you write about Lily finding out about Lupin being a werewolf sometime in the story. I think that would be awesome. Oh, and the other 3 being Animageous(es) (I have no idea how to spell that so sorry for completely buchering the spelling!). OH, and (if you're continuing the story after the year ends and if you decide to go canon) the beginning of the original OOTP. OH, and I would love a little stand-off between James and Snape (can just imagine the insults flying now...). And of course Sirius' reaction to finding out that Alice is going out with Frank. OH, also a fight between Sirius and his Blacker (lol) relations. With his brother and his cousin there, the opportunities are endless, especially now that they're both presumably either Death Eaters or DIT (Death Eaters in Training ;)). OH, it would be crazy amazing if they were taunting Sirius and James about how James' parents died. . . That would start one hell of a fight. And of course, the Yule Ball will be fun as well.
Sorry for the long review. I tend to get carried away :)

Oh, Alice shouldn't go for Sirus, thats for sure. And I think Frank was in Gryffindor but thats a minor detail. lol I like this; super cute. I can't wait to see what happens next!

I LOVE this chapter! Oh, something wicked this way comes...oh, mystery xD Really, I'm feeling a bit bitter on fluff and romance right now (I dunno why) but I just couldn't help being giddy! Haha! Wow...Alice...and Frank? What about Sirius *teary eyes* Just kidding! How cute is Sirius's jealousy! I just noticed one thing: two a.m. in the morning...that's kinda redundant...Two a.m. would've been fine or just two in the morning, but hey, we all get our mistakes. But it still doesn't change the fact that this chapter is...wait for it...BOMBASTIC! Haha, I love that adjective xD And thanks for mentioning me and saying that I'm your new favourite person...it's a really nice birthday present (yes, it's my birthday today...hehe) oopsies, random rant.
Anyways, keep on rockin! Can't wait for the next chappie )

Well, personally I'm a very canon person. And it bugs me when people go a little AU and a little canon. Like if that makes sense. But good chapter. And Lily and James are finally together! Yay! I can't wait to see what happens next!
| alambil felicis chapter 9 . 1/14/2010
Damn! You made me giddy. The moonlight thing was cliche...but damn! Probably one of the best Lily-James first kiss moment...probably THE best. No kidding.
Oh and Sirius and Alice! Gosh! That was so cute! Damn, I sound like one of the bimbo girls at my school. Sorry. James asking Lily for a one-on-one thingy was so sweet. Then they went outside...hah...James was just so effin sweet. He confessed! *hyperventilate*
Lily kissed him! *double hyperventilate* ...under the moonlight! *squeals*
Peter was idiotically funny. Hahahahahahahaha! I just love Sirius in this one! The Darama Queen!
Oh! I also love how you wrote the boys talking about "stuff". Is that how you boys talk about "stuff"? Well, I think it's just adorable xD
Please continue to write more! I can't suggest anything, sorry...it's because I'm too caught up with these chapters. ...*sigh* I get over slowly. You're really great. You got every single freakin awesome thing just right.
Keep on wrockin!

Lily is so liking James! And now I'm squealing like a blonde piglet, dammit! And what the friggin Inferno, Sirius? conditioner? Haha! I almost peed my pants! And I shouldn't have said that...it was embarassing...Man you're so good!
| alambil felicis chapter 7 . 1/14/2010
Damnit, I I just can't stop laughing. And oh, the Sirius/Alice is awesome. Hehe. They are so adorable!
Syrup? Wow! Haha! I think I'll try that. Sirius is just so dramatic...and cute. James is just...whoa! Lily, godric! How she thinks about James! Man, that was swet! Swet as the syrup Alice chugged! xD
I can't help praising you for kicking Arnold Peasegood of the tryouts...erm, personal reasons. I can't stand the name...erm, a bit personal...haha...
Wasabi chips? I'm being dim right, but I don't know what wasabi chips are. Are they chips that taste like wasabi? Cool. I'll just google it. I love wasabi. In fact, my dinner just consisted of wasabi. Tell me, is eating normal if you dip buttered chicken on wasabi and soy sauce. Yep, that's what I did. Weird huh? okay, random rant, sorry about that.
Haha! I love James with the Terminator thing. I giggled. And, mind you, I seldom giggle as it is a very girly thing to do. Giggling should be illegal, really. xD
Damn, I love James. He reminds me of someone that I shouldn't speak of here. Forgive me for being a girl *sigh*
I mean, Lily used to "hate" James right? And now she's falling for him...girls...I curse my hormones. xD Opsies, random rant again. Sorry
Apologies for wrong grammar and spellings. And oh yes, I would love to be a beta for you unfortunately, I was not gifted with editing skills. I think I'll just be a devoted reader to you. Is that okay?

Sorry, the internet crashed. Anyways, I was so frustrated because I just composed this awfully long review that would've probably made your week (okay, maybe I'm exaggerating), but then the stupid internet crashed, as said earlier.
“I hate you.”
I need to stop quoting your fic, and get a life. Nah...xD
Seriously, when I read this, my heart skipped a beat! That is so like a girl! I should know, I do that xD I admit that I am damn giddy right now! I don't know if I have mentioned this before (because I'm writing lengthy reviews to you and I just forgot what I rant about), but man, I didn't know boys could fluff this good. No offense, mate. Wow, you're really friggin good!
I want to copy and paste all the things which I love in this chapter (aka all of it) but that would just be stupid. Do I need to say that you have done a very great job? Yes, so here it goes: YOU HAVE DONE A VERY GREAT JOB! Throughout your stories, I've noticed some mistakes but I barely remember them...okay xD Sorry if I get mistakes on my reviews too. Our keyboard is faulty haha.
And you call that writer's block? What the Inferno! You were that good! I couldn't stop guffawing!

Sorry but I just need to do this:
“Not to worry old buddy, we’ve got just the thing to cheer you up.” Cue evil grins on four faces.
Up in her office, Professor McGonagall had a case of the shivers.
The next morning dawned bright and sunny, as if the world knew something had changed overnight, and was glad.
Also glad, were the Marauders, who were positively gleeful, bewildering everyone else in the Great Hall. Surely…they wouldn’t…not now…
“BLACK, LUPIN, PETTIGREW, POTTER! DETENTION!”
That day, the 16th of November, 1978, became known as the day Hogwarts turned green, as a gigantic explosion in the Great Hall at breakfast turned everyone and everything on the grounds a disgusting GREEN.
Let's not forget this:
James had no reply to that. At all. So he did the only thing that came to mind at the moment: he stuck his tongue out at her.
Green? Simply hilarious! I had to stop reading in the part where McGonagall shivered because I couldn't quit laughing. James is terribly sweet when he stuck his tongue out at Lily. That is so like a boy. I heard from all the flirty girly girls at school (I am NOT one of them. I'm a geeky nerd) that when a guy does that, he's showing affection in a weird way. Whaha! Great job as always. I like your writing style. Dammit!
Hey, I just noticed that at first I placed your fic on my Stories Alert, then at Favorite Stories, then I subscribed to Author Alert...who knows what's next? Oh yeah!

The dorm room thing is very awesome. Whoa, you're a guy? Oh, that's why the Marauders were so cool xD I barely see guys at the Fandom. I dunno, maybe it's just me. I'm not a sexist, mind you.
Anyways, it's so sad. About your father, I offer my prayers. I hope you all are doing well. About James, it's equally sad.
I think I shouldn't say this, but wth, I will: My favorite Death Eater is Regulus Black...hehe. Completely useless for me to say, right?
You really are something of a writer. Have i mentioned that I'm jealous? Yes, I think I did. You really capture their character and emotions, something I am troubling with. And I just admire your POV. It's omniscient, humorous and all the other things that dragged me to read this fic. I should be searching for prom dress right now (I'm ranting, apologies), because mom's fussing, but I just could NOT stop!
This review is already long, and I can't wait to read the next chapter. So I'll end my review and proceed to Chapter 4. Apologies for wrong grammar and spellings you might see in my review,
