It was a lovely start for a Marauders fic. I liked how you chose the moment when they were sorted as a starting point, and not the typical Hogwarts express scene.

I was pleasantly surprised how distinct voices you've already written for each character right from the start. I loved how you didn't omit the little Peter, but gave him an equal time as well.

It was interesting to see how Sirius was reminded about the things he had heard from Bellatrix and Narcissa, and then showed some seriously independent thinking. It was very much like him to think about how he could make McGonagall smile, not if he could, but just merely how.

Remus was so self-conscious, that it almost broke my heart. Poor kid, already knowing how other students would reject him, if the truth would come out. His back story was really well written and it was great way to show how he was forced to be brave, so that he'd survive. Your hat is so wise! I really like it! =)

Peter and too big school robes. I can see how he would be the chubby kid in a man's clothes and get ridiculed on the very first night. *sigh* Yet he was clearly thrilled just to be included with other kids. And James, of course he would help Peter, it would be very much like him to help the resident underdog, just because no one else cared to do it.

I loved Dumbledore's kindness and how his beard would point to North. It sounds quite similar than the little oddities he used to say. I'm still bit miffed to JKR that she didn't tell us how he got that scar which looked like a map of the London Underground to his knee.

James's little story about saving a muggle girl from the biting mushrooms was so hilarious. I can definitely see James being the one kid who is so enthusiastic about everything that sometimes things get knocked over and friends end up in St. Mungo's. =D Then there's his need to get noticed. Some kids just require little bit more attention and he seems to be exactly that kind of kid. =)

The rest of the Gryffindors from that year round up the gang pretty nicely. I'm very interested in reading more of this story to see where you'll lead us next. Your writing was practically impeccable. The characterization was top notch. I wouldn't change a thing in this chapter, it's just so good as it is.
