I loved it buuuuuuuuuut:
“I reckon James will be the first of us to die. He’s a bit of a twat”

It was so funny and cute and then you stabbed me in the back

He sounds exactly like a girl on her period. "That time of the month" is a very valid name for it XD

Wow. That took an unexpected turn, but I loved it nonetheless. Interesting concept, never read anything like that. Peter was my favourite, he just doesn't get enough accurate representation in the fics. Great job :)

*gasps and comes out of the corner*
And I put that twat right where he belongs. I admit, I took him off the Earth a little early, Satan kinda started to feel bad for you guys.

*sits in corner* *sobs*

Some of these made me go back to the corner...
I love how honest James is though. "I thought about Padfoot inappropriately before. I'm not gonna lie." I really really want to know how that line was worked into a conversation. Or where it was said. My money is on the Great Hall, standing on the staff table, talking to Dumbledore.

[I reckon James will be the first of us to die] WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?
I'm going to go sniffle in a corner where you mean people can't hit me with lines like that.
I actually can't say anything because I like to foreshadow too, but...
I'm still going in that corner.

It didn't occur to me to finish reading your summary because of how I found this story. I just read the very beginning of it which is how I usually do stories I review for this forum thing and now I'm laughing at myself for wondering and then figuring you were doing Wolfstar instead of just knowing because I assume most people know already because they actually read the whole summary...sigh, feeling a bit slow right now.
Also, our Cup ended while I was reviewing you but i have already started and your quotes deserve the reviews anyway, so let's get started.
I don't think I expected there to be so much talk of James in Lily's quotes but it makes sense why there is. I mean she spent a lot of time telling him how terrible he was and defending her friend, so yeah that makes sense. I also expected there to be more studying and more Snape , but you seemed to want to get through a lot and it almost felt rushed. I think that would be my biggest complaint...this felt sort of like you were mingling time taking them further and further through the story with each character until this ending with Lily, but once we got here it felt like you rushed to get to this ending moment and that takes a bit away from this chapter.
Also...I have resigned myself to the unwarranted feel trips but that does not mean I will stop fussing at you for making me sad in what I assumed would be a feel good and lighthearted event...all the warnings you put in that summary and I got no warning that I might be sad by the end of this. You even lulled me into a false sense of security with how funny this all started out.
Despite that I did really enjoy reading through these quotes. I was happy, I was angry, I got sad...all the things you want people to feel and such so good on you. I look forward to checking out some of your other stuff.

For the first second I was like...he's way too vocal. I always imagined Wormtail something like Colin Creevey to be honest, but the more I read the quotes the more I realized that you were good. I like that even when I wonder for a moment about your characterizations my worries are quickly put to rest.
I find it hilarious he has a crush on Professor Sprout. Also, because you use her name so much I realized that I said Madame Pomfrey in one of my reviews, the one for the chapter about James...I was reading too fast and I saw the 'Pom' and my mind filled in the rest since people usually call her Professor Sprout and not Pomona.
Anyway, I really love you have him talking about food so often because I could totally believe he'd been eating or thinking about eating pretty often. I also found the quote of him not being sure if he'd eaten something poisonous really funny. I was just imagining his face as he realized he had not paid enough attention to what had just gone in his mouth.
Ugh! When he says until the end I am both sad and angry...I know this is Wormtail the young guy but I know what he becomes and I hate the little rat.
NO! Don't give me that kind of ending! I don't want the heavy stuff, there's too much of that already. Ugh...I do not feel sorry for him at all. Seriously...now I'm thinking of the Remus quotes lol...but seriously, I don't care what people say about him redeeming his self, I still hate him.
Ugh...let's just get to Lily.

Onto Moony! I must preface this by saying that Moony is my favourite Marauder and I must now read all about this lovely werewolf because he is awesome, and come on, he grows up to have colour-changing werewolf babies, which is great. So, without further ado, let us see how you handle Remus.
That second line XD. It was rather hilarious, but I just don’t know if it suits Remus to blandly bandy about the fact that he’s poor and impoverished when he’s still around 15. That being said, I loved the little gag about the chocolate – still not sure why everyone thinks he’s a Chocaholic, but I do think it’s one of the more interesting gags our fandom has created.
Why do I sense that Remus being a Prefect meant he spent most of his time running around and keeping his friends out of trouble? That’s very Remus – he’s like the voice of reason in the gang of crazy, and I like how you’ve determined this character trait rather early on in the series.
Haha, the bits about him telling everyone to shut up is genius. It’s another nice way of bringing in his role of the voice of reason, because I imagine what with all the crazy Marauder style pranks going around, there really isn’t much he can do other than just shut them up whenever they get to crazy.
I don’t think Sirius would mind getting ripped to shreds if it was Moony doing the ripping, if you know what I mean *wink* I like that you’ve shown his ability to joke about his condition, rather than so many other stories in which he’s always depressed for some strange reason – I mean, he has a reason, but he wasn’t an emo about it, if you get me. That’s why I like this depiction of him.
I can just imagine Remus lying face down in bed, burying his head into the pillow and delivering that time of the month line with a muffled, irritated, exhausted by his friends antics style voice. It’s really interesting how you’re beginning to tie in snippets of conversation in this one to James and Sirius – so we’re seeing a linkage, so to speak.
Yup, the Wolfstar is strong in this story. Remus is just in constant denial – the bit about the nightmare proves it. It’s such a sweet, tender moment to, and I just really like that one line, and how it shows there’s more to their relationship than a bunch of sex jokes.
[I hate it. . .all the time] – Right in the feels with this one. The Werewolf transformations must be hell, but on the bright side, he gets to rip Sirius to shreds. So alls well that ends well, I guess.
The ending was really well done, in my opinion, because I think it just perfectly summed up that entire story, and left a nice open ending for potential Wolfstar romance to have taken bloom prior to the war itself.

Alright, well honestly I never thought Remus was impoverish so for me that struck me as odd...but other than that everything thing else seemed to fit. This is actually the first time I've been reading these quotes and felt like something just didn't fit, I think a big part of it was that...idk I don't imagine Remus to be the type to ask his friends for money, in my mind at least, he'd be trying to get them to not spend money on him and I don't think he'd complain about not having as much as the rest of them if he didn't. Though I was under the impression that though his family was not extremely rich like the Potters or the Blacks, they were not poor. But once again, this is honestly a great example of how people might interpret characters differently, and it doesn't change anything about how well you've handled other aspects of his character.
Yay! I was right, you do have some of these actually referencing what the others say! I really like that you've done this because it makes them feel so much more connected. At first it seemed like this was sort of a series of similar one-shots but now, noticing they make comment on each other's quotes it feels much more interconnected and cohesive.
Okay, really? did I not comment last time on a warning before we take a feel trip? Stop taking my happy and innocent (I use this word loosely) moments and then making my heart sting a bit.
Ahaha! I love that ending though. I bet Sirius makes those jokes all the time and everyone has to try to remember not to say that around him because he does it every time and they all just want him to stop, but he finds it hilarious so he won't.
