CORN FLAKES ♥ I don't even like them but now I'm craving them. Corn flakes and more of your writing, that is.

I don't read Lily/James when you're not around. There are very few people who pull them off and you and Georgia are the only ones that spring to mind at the minute. They play off each other brilliantly and you make them so real in a way that a lot of people don't. It's a pleasant change not to have to see Lily screeching like a banshee all the time.

James has lost the arrogance, Lily's more open to him. The progression of their relationship was believable and so well executed: it made me feel all fluffy and warm. Sirius is a brilliant background character too, here, and I think you pulled him off really well.

When there is talk of the war, it's brief and quiet until someone cracks a joke and brings them back to their youth. - I think this line was the one that really stuck with me throughout the story. It really summed up both the Marauders and Hogwarts era for me and after that, it loomed over the story a bit, the fact that it's not all going to be all right forever which made it seem even more important that these two got together and got the other half they deserved.

I love this lots. I've missed you and your writing terribly and I hope your muse carries on coming up with things like this.

Author's Response: CORN FLAKES WAS ALMOST THE TITLE OF THE STORY! But I changed it at the last minute. Truth is, I don't like corn flakes much either but I remembered that thread you made about breakfast foods in Britain and all I remembered was corn flakes being on the list. So I picked that, lol.

Really? That's a tragedy, but so is the lack of decent L/J fic. I could talk about this ship from here until the next life time because I love them so much. It's just a shame how one dimensional some writers make the characters, how lacking their story is. It's actually quite a beautiful story, in my mind, if only because it ends so tragically.

I'm so glad you liked Sirius. I was worried that he wouldn't come off the way I wanted him, which is as James' best friend. I know that might sound weird, but really, if Lily's got to get anyone's "approval", so to speak, it's his. And I figured that since Lily wrote to Sirius once they were out of Hogwarts, they ought to be friends. Or something.

*blushes* I actually like that line quite a lot for the very reason you listed. I didn't want to make the war a focal point of the story, just sort of a reminder looming in the background. So happy that it actually worked!

I've missed you too, dear! And your writing. I've got so much to catch up on. YOU FINISHED LOSING NEVERLAND! I'm about to cry tears of joy, really, I am.

I adore you lots! Thanks for this beautiful review, love.
