Review:Cassius Alcinder says:
So I'm finally getting around to start reading this, but I've heard nothing but good things.

I have to say that Beth appears to be a character that grabs your attention right away (partly because I'm in love with Katie McGrath, but that's besides the point) But anyway, you get extra points for degree of difficulty for taken on the classic "5th Marauder" idea. It seems convincing so far, and if she isn't being shipped with Sirius, then it's already very original. I enjoyed the banter between the friends, and I also give you credit for including Peter in the group.

This looks like it's going to be a good read!

Author's Response: Hi! I'm SO excited you're reading this, by the by, and I can't wait to see what you think of it. I'm so happy you've heard good things about it, too! I'm a bit invested in this story. ;)

I didn't go into writing this knowing that tackling a fifth Marauder was a huge and heavy cliche, so hearing that it is so far original is really very gratifying! Beth's a lot like me in some ways (and nothing like me in others), so I'm always curious to see how she comes across to other people. Sirius is an interesting character in Beth's life, and I think you'll get a better taste of that in In The Red -- but they are never an item, which is something overused that I was only too happy to steer away from!

Another aside: People just don't include Peter enough in stories. I know we, as readers, are prejudiced because we know what he becomes, but James and Sirius and Remus had no idea what he would grow up to do. Thank you for positively mentioning that!

Thanks so much for the review! ♥ I'm madly excited, and I hope very much that you'll enjoy this as you go. Hoping to see you back soon!
