Review #5, coming your way!
Sixth year starting off with a bang, Sirius claiming that he levitated Regulus at the grand old age of two, with James being disbelieving, Remus saying nothing, avoiding conflict, and Peter just going with the flow!
Sirius Black! You did not just push your friend down the stairs! And look, he landed on top of someone. What’s the betting that ‘someone’ is either Lily or maybe Snivellus!
It was Lily (who was half-right? ME!)
And Peter shooing the crowd away. See, I like the way you portray Peter. Some people try and diss him, but like, he was a part of the Marauders, so they obviously had to like him, and he them. Just because he made some (very, very VERY) bad decisions in later life, does not mean he was a bad person right the way through, right? Right.
James being all fidgety while he was being examined by the matron, I found that hilarious! It’s just so him, can’t stay still for half a second before he wants to be off again, up to something constantly. Him apologising to Lily is so sweet, sometimes lads can be hard pushed to say sorry, but not my Jamesie ;)
Madame Pomfrey forcing the lads to turn around while she examined Lily, hah! Seems like a very Madame Pomfrey-ish thing to do! You’re so good at characterisation, you have all the characters down to a T, so realistic and just, brilliant, just amazing really! Hearts to you my friend! Hearts to you!
I agree with James. Lily, you are the worst actor in the history of bad acting! I like how it was Lily that knew about Muffliato, not the prankster James. Shows that she has a bit of mischievousness in her as well! Ah Kayla, you have me on cuteness overload over here! Lily wanting to spoon with James. Okay, this is definitely flirting, and I love it! James and Lily flirty flirty time, wink ;)
Look, James admitting he was a prattish prat of a first year, and Lily admitting she was snobby. Look at that, acceptance, the first step. Well done my young grasshoppers, you have done well *stroke my awesome Dumbledore beard*
YES! I got my wish, serious James has arrived. This is such a, well cute doesn’t really fit with the mood, and intimate sounds hokey, but well, you get what I mean. They’re just lying there, talking about everything and anything, and then Lily admitting she’s worried about Snape, even though he was the biggest prat to her, and James offer to protect her without a second thought and oh, my feels! They just exploded!
James confiding in Lily about the ‘infamous Marauder secret’ really was a significant moment, wasn’t it? I’d say that was the moment that got to ball rolling from them being awkward friends to falling in lurve. So cute, just so Aaah! This needs a new word, ‘cute’ doesn’t cover those two anymore. It’s something bigger! Much bigger!
And of course it had to end with Exploding Snap ;)
Last chapter next! Sob!
Author's Response: Hello again!
I feel like James and Sirius would have had the touchy-feely friendship, and would constantly be poking each other or pushing/shoving each other, because that's what a lot of blokes do. :p
Every time I see a fic with Peter characterised as a ~insert non 12+ word here~, I get SUPER mad. Because James and Lily wouldn't have picked him as their Secret Keeper if they didn't trust him! D: So as soon I see those types of fics, I generally close the tab groaning. :p
Ahhh, I'm so glad you like my characterisations of everyone though! It really means a lot to me! :')
Of course it was going to be Exploding Snap. They do really enjoy card games. ;)
Thank you so much for this absolutely amazing review! You're far too kind! ♥
