Argh I just finished exams and I've been meaning to read your story for ages! I'm so glad I did, it was well worth it :) My internet is being dodgy so I'll just say everything I want to say in this review, hope you don't mind!

I think it's interesting how you've portrayed Lily and James as being friends at Hogwarts. It's quite a different take on their relationship and it's exciting to read about! I absolutely ADORE their interactions, they're both so cute and they work so well together!

I just have a few questions:

1. What motivated you to write the chapters out of chronological order? And why do you jump in between the different years (if that makes sense)? For example, you jump from fifth to fourth to seventh etc. Don't get me wrong - it's not a bad thing. I just think it's an interesting way of setting up the story, I haven't read anything like it before :)

2. (I have a feeling that someone else might have brought this up) but why did Dumbledore ask Lily and James to have a secret-keeper in February? I'm pretty sure they chose Sirius first in October, then they switched to Peter about a week later (although I haven't read the books in a while so I probably should double check it before saying anything). Just thought I'd mention it because you wanted to keep in line with canon :P

I think that's all I have to say for now, sorry for rambling! You have a wonderful story, it'll be interesting to see where it goes :)

Author's Response: aw thank you so much! Sorry for the delay in replying, I had a packed two days! :p

haha I love James and Lily, and I really hate seeing them hate each other. And it actually hurts me to write them disliking each other haha. :p

Anyway, I'll answer your questions!

1) Well, I originally wrote the first chapter as a one-shot, but then I kept thinking of other ideas and so I couldn't possibly do it in chronological order.

However, now as I'm typing this I realised I hadn't posted it so I could have rearranged it to be in normal order but oh well!

Although, you might have noticed that I put things in one chapter, and then the next chapter I use that same thing. I kind of wanted to show that they're still the same people throughout all their - sniff - very short lives. :)

2) Ack, someone did bring it up! I was actually unaware that it was October when they decided Peter to be their secret keeper. Or I completely forgot. I will change it though - because I'm a canon-nut - but the queue is currently closed so I can't do that right now. :)

Anyway, thank you for the lovely review! I have three chapters left, so hopefully you'll enjoy it! :)
