Hey there . . . I think you usually request a different story in review requests, but hey, I'll be honest here. I was looking for something short, and also this has the fewest reviews of anything on your page. :P So this was it.

I don't normally read Marauder stories, to be frank, though I seem to be getting/choosing them tonight! I never did care for the Marauders, and Lily/James usually makes me go ick!

This was a different spin on it than I usually see, though. Yeah, James was a loud, obnoxious narrator like he often is, and I couldn't take him all that seriously as a '70s kid. However, I could take him seriously as a regular person, which I can't always in Marauder stories, what with him and his friends running around pulling several outrageous pranks a day.

James was very sweet in this story, secretly sending up some food for Lily. That was thoughtful of him, especially when he didn't come by to gloat about it (which he seemed to realize would definitely not earn him any point). He's kinda cute with his little secret at the end.

Author's Response: Hey, I really appreciate that even though you don't usually go for Lily/James that you read it anyway, that was really awesome of you! I didn't really think about making him a 70's kid, I tried to focus more about what the Marauders actually saw him as, instead of how he normally acts stupid around Lily 'cause he doesn't know how to act normal around her. I also wanted the readers to see that he really did have a sweet side, and he wouldn't actually have to change a heck of a lot, if any, for Lily to like him.
I'm glad you thought he was cute, and sweet, I never thought him nearly as obnoxious as others make him out to be.
Thanks for reviewing :)
