Review: Whimsical Diva says:
I just wanted to tell you that I really like this story. I think you've captured the friendship and love which formed the fabric of Marauders' lives beautifully. And thank God Sirius does not have a girlfriend in this story; personally, I'm inclined to believe that neither Sirius nor Lupin had a girlfriend during the time of the first war. I clearly remember reading an interview of JKR where she said that Sirius did not have the 'time' to fall in love with a woman, and thus Harry had no godmother.

I particularly liked the portrayal of Sirius. Generally, fanfic writers take Sirius a bit too seriously and they tend to forget that he was only a teenager at that time; in most fanfics, Sirius is more mature than he would have been in canon. I think Sirius in this fic is confident, loyal but not entirely self-assured, and that works very well for the story.

All in all, this is a wonderful story. I look forward to reading more. :)

Author's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for the compliments, because a lot of the things you said are exactly the things I go for. I really wanted to write just a "marauder" story about the war. So their friendship is definitely important in this story! And no way, no OC girlfriends or anything. I believe that if they had girlfriends or anyone special in their lives aside from each other, they'd have mentioned it at some point to Harry.

I'm surprised at what you say about Sirius! Because in the fanfics I see, Sirius is completely the opposite of what you've seen! He's immature, always joking, never taking anything seriously. He's an unfeeling shallow clown, and I hate that he's portrayed like that. Now i'm actually interested in seeing some of the fanfics YOU'VE seen,because I rarely see a serious sirius! But I love Sirius to death. After all that he's been through with his family, and rejection, I definitely think he would have some insecurities underneath. I think he'd be a dreamer more than anything. I could always see Sirius staring off into space ^.^

Thank you for the great review, it was a lot of fun to respond to.
