Although this story was complete nearly two years ago, I'd like to add my review / comments.
I enjoyed your characterization of Lily thoroughly, and think she is one of the best Lily's I've read. She's strong, smart, and stands up, for herself. Yet she has a sense of humour, pushes boundaries, and has real sense of fun. In in essence she is very much a teenager, some thing which many authors (even the best ones) tend to forget, much to the detriment of their stories. Lily held true to herself, even in the midst of, and directly following her getting together with James. The two them teasing each other during their beach scene (referencing the giant squid) and cleaning were terrific. It gets very tiresome for Lily to "melt" into James and completely forget her personality after she realizes she likes him.
I would also like to comment on how lovely and refreshing it is for the Evans and the Potters to have known each other, and to,have liked each other. So many other stories are insular to Hogwarts, as if James and Lily had no other family of any importance to either of them.
My only small criticism is the cottages, beaches, and fairs that you describe are, I believe, much too North American. However, the characters are well developed, the plot is well paced, and the dialog sharpe enough for this not to matter.

Haha. By marrying that girl, you helped the world, James. A lot. You saved the Wizarding world. Your father would be very proud.

Awwww. I really enjoyed reading this story. It's a new and different take on Lily/James and it's really well done. Love the characterisation, especially the way you write Lily. I love that there's some Lily/Petunia, Lily/her family. I love the progress of her relationship with James. I love everything. :)
Thank you for writing this.

This is incredible. It probably one of if not the best Lily and James falling in love over summer fics I've ever read. You managed to make it sweet and funny and sad and just about everything else all at the same time. Your characters were really good and I particularly liked a Lily and James, they were exactly as I imagine them to be. Your OCs were well developed and the rest of the marauders and the parents were great. I really like how it wasn't they meet and are together by chapter 3 and there was some sort of journey to get there. All up it was absolutely amazing and I love it!

It's utterly irritating that Lily accepts Nate's arrogance but when James is arrogant it's repulsive. In Jily fics it gets pretty irritating that Lily can't seem to look past how James was when he was 11, 12, 13, or 14. How terrible would life be if we were all put into boxes based on how we were when we were teens.

Okay. I am just going to say this before I explode. This was the best lily/James before hogwarts fic I have ever read. I think you capture both of their personalities perfectly and you don't destroy any of the ideas for them I had formed in my head which in itself is just perfect. You're such a beautiful, talented writer. I really want you to write more. Honestly. Thank you. Thank you for this fanfic.

Wow,this is great! I read it in TWO days :)
I would absolutely LOVE to see Hogwarts' reaction to James and Lily as a couple though. Just like a one-shot or something?! Maybe?!
