|Reviews for Lily's Changes|
| brigrove chapter 6 . 1/27
Being a Brit I'm just guessing mentos are a brand of mints? I wonder where Harry or Dudley imported them from? :) I loved the scene about the fat suit and trying to look angry

mauled by a stray animal... in Surrey? a densely populated suburb of London? The only wild animal you might get is a fox but they are more interested in food in rubbish bins and while I suppose one could bite, it wouldn't be capable of mauling anything. (I'm guessing you're from the USA or somewhere with bears or something)
Other than that a nicely crafted chapter

I had to laugh. Who the hell takes a baby on a motorcycle? I lived ten years in Argentina and it's not uncommon to see dad, mum and a few kids all squeezed onto one motorcycle, none wearing helmets of course. I nearly died of fright when I was offered a lift home by one man, as I was squeezed onto the back of the seat behind his young son and nearly bounced off every time he hit a bump in the road!

mostly good reasoning. A couple of flaws - as Harry pointed out, Riddle let the basilisk loose at Muggleborns while he was still a student, so he was murderous then. If Lily is telling him to think, would be accept her glossing over that particular part? In the previous chapter Molly did not keep putting Percy down as Lily said, she was Percy's great supporter until after he turned on his father for his own greed, even then she tried giving him Christmas presents and was overjoyed when he visited the family with the new Minister (before finding out it was just a ploy for the new minister to meet Harry). Without disagreeing with your general analysis of Molly and the Weasleys, the speaking loudly at the station could simply be a way to get the youngest child to answer which is something commonly done by parents trying to involve the youngest child in something.
Back to this chapter, while I like the premise and look forward to more, by the time Voldemort killed James and Lily he was already a mass murderer, there isn't a justice system in the world that wouldn't lock him away for life or put him to death, insanity plea or not.

I can't finish this story. It's just you using Lily as a bully pull pit to yell and rant. No one is IC at all.

I should have known my prediction would have came true. Of course now she says Voldemort was just misunderstood. Of course. Still no sign of an actual chapter, just more ranting.

Yea, Lily is kind of a hypocritical bitch in this story. She just yells at Harry, and is forcing her choices on him while saying everyone else is wrong because she's right. They way she raises up bad characters and demonizes everyone else is sad. Next thing you know she'll be saying Voldemort might have had a good point. I'm going to keep reading, but I dunno about this one.
For any readers who read reviews first- you can skip chapter one without missing anything. It's just basically explaining in an angry rant by Dumbledore is an evil demon, instead of an old age-addled man who really has poor planning skills.
Chapter two is just explainnig that everyone Harry liked is Wrong and Messed Up with capital letters, and that Harry isn't allowed to choose for himself on these things because mommy says so.

Loved this story! Wonderful job will be putting this one in my fav file.

I always imagined that Neville would have reported the abuse from Snape. Whereas Frank and Alice would have responded immediately (or I could imagine it the way you've written it), Augusta probably chalked it up to useless whinging of a preteen who should suck it up and be a man like Frank. (Or something.)
I like the way you had Harry challenge Snape, bring it to the attention of McGonagall, and Harry's response to McGonagall's dismissal of Harry's concerns.
| Miriam1 chapter 9 . 1/9
So... Harry is a manipulative twerp. A manipulative twerp we are solidly rooting for, but nonetheless...
It is a fantastic prank, and the whole Ravenclaw thing was Harry's invention. Nicely played.

Wow! (Firstly my second review as a real person not just 'guest') but more importantly your story. What an absolutely brilliant piece of work! Not only did you manage to (in my opinion) perfectly personify Lily Potter but also challenge the problems that this book series created. You managed to collect all the doubt and small things that were unrealistic but this isn't a fanfic of hate (besides some Dumbledore and Weasley bashing) but instead of creativity.
Okay kept reading and you've not only solved the major problems but moved on to my favorite part of the story. The gooey romance. Hehehehe Im typing this up in my notes to cut and paste later and let me say it's perfect! But really Hermione is such a talented and interesting character I feel is often overlooked just like with Luna. Both incredibly intelligent but not stereotypically 'cool'. So wow! Yes a bit rushed after first year and I'm sad Quidditch is changed. (No guts no glory. What's life without danger) but that's all easily overlooked.
Oh! I also forgot to mention. I love what you've done with the Dursleys although I can't imagine them correctly I rather think of them as completely different people but that's kinda the point...
You even added a little Dobby cuteness!
Brilliant! Brilliant! Oh gosh. I want to compliment you on your ending up don't wanna spoil anything. Let me just say. AMAZING! I had my doubts when starting this fanfic but they were quickly brushed and away and for that I am so glad! Yes this review had been added to throughout reading this and is my longest review ever! (As a guest or logged in) but sooo worth it! I just can't express how amazing this story is. I really hope to write a fanfiction as creative and detailed and urgh perfect as this. Thank you thank you! Truly an honor reading. It may not have as much sappy romance as I usually enjoy but it made up for it in originality and creativity and utter brilliance.
