Is it weird that I still imagine Mary with glasses? Probably. But you made her blink owlishly! And owls have glasses, duh! Haha, you know how in cartoons when someone with glasses is staring at someone else and they blink and it makes that *plink* noise? Well, I totally imagine that every time I read that part about Mary.
Okay, so...that was an unnecessary rant, but whatever.
I really love this chapter! I'm sooo glad you decided to make James actually talk! I was beginning to think he might've taken up a vow of silence or something. Or maybe he's just a mime. >.>
Anyway, I really think the interaction between James and Lily was just what this chapter needed. I mean, 6 chapters and how many months into this fic and James hasn't even spoken to her yet? Pshaw.
But, we already went through that. Gah, it's hard to review stories you beta for. Haha, I just feel like I'm repeating myself a million times over.
Hmm, what haven't I said yet? Ooh, I'm so glad that you gave Sirius some depth. AND that you linked it back to the second chapter. A lot of writers just make him completely silly and carefree (woah, oxymoron: carefree Sirius) but you've actually shown a much deeper side of him, even if he was rather begrudging to show it.
Also, looking forward to Snape re-entering the scene. Not sure when that happens, but I can't imagine he's gone for good!
Welp, I guess that's it. You're awesome. Like supermegaawesomefoxyhot awesome. Awesome. >.> And, yeah.
Peace out Holmes,
Author's Response: Haha, just a bit. Sorry to burst your image of my character, but she really doesn't have glasses :P But I know what you're talking about with the plink noise thing.
And I owe the whole James talking thing all to you (: Thanks oodles for that; that seems to be the part everyone loves a lot so far. Psssh, he hasn't taken up a vow of silence...there just really hasn't been that much of an opportunity for him to pop up yet, okay? Geez :P
Haha, only 6 chapters and like...a week or two, maybe? I can't remember the actual timeline, but I guess it is a little weird >_< Oh well. Problem solved now, yesh?
I told you! Now you know how hard it is for me to review SYW sometimes. I guess we don't really have to but, still...it's nice/fun. We could always save all the nice comments for our reviews and just leave all the criticisms in Google so then we've got more to say (:
Haha, I like having a deep Sirius. I can't write a character who doesn't have at least a little depth. I don't think I could even write a story without a little depth...so fluff would be completely impossible for me xD Is that weird or what? But, yeah, I didn't want to make Sirius so unserious when it's always seemed to me like he would have a serious sort of bitter side to him because of his upbringing.
Ummm...Snape probably won't be in it for a while. Like, he is in it again, but I can't remember exactly when and I think it's a good amount of chapters away o_O
Welp, thanks for the review :P You are supermegaawesomefoxyhot awesome too, and thanks oodles for betaing and reviewing and stuffs (: You rock.
(Also, only five more reviews till 100!!! Can you believe it? :D)
