I had some spare time, so I decided to come and check chapter 3 out!
I really feel for Lily, you can sense how much her emotions are conflicting. She wants to grieve for her parents, as itís the only natural thing to do. Then James has to go and give her that squeeze, and she gets all I excited (I did too!), and regrets enjoying herself, when her parents have just died. Why does life have to be so complicated at times?
Iím wondering with Lily whether Dumbledore has seen more sides to James than the rest of us have. I wonder if Dumbledore does know about James being an animagus, and was impressed that he did so much for his friend, and made him head boy because of that. Or could it be so many other reasons, Iíll really should stop hypothesising, my head will ache too much, because with HP there can always be so many reasons why certain things happen.
Their dormitory sounded so cool, I wanted to move in there right now! And this is coming from a Ravenclaw, who wants to move into a Gryffindor themed room! I think it was because of the fireplace, and the four poster beds, and the wardrobe! If I had one of them, I would have so much more time on my hands. Oh ok and the bathroom, that was pretty cool as well, Iíve always wanted a bath which I could swim in.
No they fought! But Iím with Lily here, her parents just died, and then James sort of expects her to date him! I mean come on, could you be any more clueless? It was sort of creepy and cute that James could list all those things about her, he really is observant, and Iím still not sure whether thatís a good thing or not.
At least they made up at the end, and it seemed really heartfelt and sweet, and it just made me aw over them. Well it still is making me aw over them, any Jilly scene makes me aw!
Iím so glad that I came back to this story, as it really is great!
Author's Response: Ugh I accidentally copy and pasted my last review response to you from pages. SORRY! I promise, this one will not have any weird characters :P
Lily definitely struggles with walking the line between grieving and moving on in this, I'm so happy that you felt sympathy for her though! I really wanted to make it seem realistic and not like she's just good to go.
Hahaha I like your theorizing!! In this story, Dumbledore doesn't know that he's an animagus. I always thought hat they probably never told him, or he would have turned Sirius in when he was on the loose. Unless he didn't believe that Sirius really killed the Potters? Which I could absolutely see... AH! Now you have my doing it!! Haha!
I'm so happy you like the dorm! I know I risked cliche with that, but it's pretty common for more prestigious boarding schools in the UK to have separate common rooms for their Head students, so I wanted to stick to tradition. But I pinky promise, I don't use it to get them together ;)
I know, how awesome would having a huge bath be?!
Yeah I think James really didn't think before he spoke in this situation. And Lily still on edge and not in the best emotional state right now...
Kiana I can't even tell you how happy it makes me that you're enjoying this ♥ Thank you so much for stopping by to read and review, even just a two line, I like this story, would make my day... so your awesome detailed reviews are such a treat!
Thank you so much again for stopping by!
And see, no weird formatting in this one ;P
