I'm back, and I thought I should go ahead and read and review something of yours because honestly, my brain is FRIED. And the big plus? I have no homework, so that calls for a 'let's bombard ohmymerlin's unanswered review box with reviews!'
So first off, my daily ritual of reviewing was broken for I think was these past two days because I begrudgingly took your advise and did all my history homework. Yes, you definately had me thinking about my grades there for a second, and that scared the crap out of me! And in doing that, it consisted of overnight hours of sitting haunch-back under a lamp with a textbook, occasionally looking up with my blood-red eyes that twitched. Yeah, it all caught up with me. And I swear, I will never torture myself like that again. You my friend, are a good influence!
Anywho, enough of the irrelevance and down to the real-deal!
This had me crooning "awwwh!" like a silly little girl fawning over puppies. You know, not just any puppy -- but puppies that look up at you with their sweet, adorable eyes, and their fur is soft and silky, and shiny, and nicely combed, and...I'll stop. I think you get the idea though. Yeah, that was exactly my reaction. It was like me fawning over a dog. This story was so, very much cute.
It's funny, I totaly can see James being that annoying twirp that would try and sneak kisses. Poor Lily. He stole her first kiss! He was not playing fair at all! But it seemed like it all worked out in the end. :)
And I loved how you took short snippits of the beginning of all seven years. They were short and got to the point of it being a tradition without dragging it out, but it wasn't flat and boring. It was sweet and light, and definately had me wearing and keeping the same big smile all the way through. Very lovely indeed! And I love how you incorporated Snape in this. I really do think that in the beginning of 6th year, she still would've carried the insult deep into her heart.
And props to you for having Peter on here, thank god! You're one of the few people who actually use Peter in good light. So many people depict him as some pathetic boy who just tags along and doesn't say anything, and it irks me so much. It wasn't like he betrayed them at school. *cough*, he betrayed them 2-3 years afterward *cough*. Peter just gets a bad rep he doesn't deserve. Who knows, maybe he could've been the coolest cat of the Mauraders. We never know. So thank you, for portraying Peter in good light, even if he said just one line. I think I'll end my little rant there before getting carried away.
But anywho, this whole story was a big WIN. Great one-shot!
And P.S. ;
Thank you for reviewing my story! It means a whole lot, especially when I've been desperate for feed back when no one has said anything. It's the biggest reason why I haven't added on to it, because I didn't know if it was worth it. But your review has me thinking twice. So thank you so so SO much! :D
Author's Response: Oh hey there!
Yay for no homework! I have a little bit right now but I thought I deserved a break from walking home! :p ahaha, it's actually going to take like ten minutes so after I've responded to this, I'll probably go do it! :p
Wow, history! No wonder you were trying to get away from it! :p Oh thank goodness I'm a good influence then! I went through it and I didn't want any of my readers to go through it either (especially not my favourite! ♥) so I thought I'd advise against it! ;)
WOW I SOUND LIKE A TEACHER WHAAT?! Ah well, I want to be a teacher so I guess that's good! :p
AHHH THANK YOU SO MUCH! This was actually my first fanfiction EVER and to hear that it was so cute makes me so happy and warm inside! :D
Of course it worked out in the end, James/Lily is like the King (Queen?) of OTP's in my mind! ;D
About Peter, yes I COMPLETELY agree with you! So many people forget that he was a Marauder too! I definitely hate Peter but I think when he was at school, he was well-liked and not just a pathetic tag-along!
I'm so glad you liked it! And your story was REALLY good! I just added it to my favourites - I always forget to do it and your review just reminded me! Plus, your stories are always worth it, do it for yourself and not for the reviews/favourites, that's what I do. That's why I get so happy when someone reviews, because it's really just an added extra! :D
(oh and thanks for reviewing again, your reviews always make me smile! :D)
