Review:AlexFan says:
I don't understand Dorcas, she's being very weird. I'm surprised at Lily though, I never thought she'd be one of those people who cared about getting a date to the ball. And Dorcas hasn't been ditching the marauders at all. I don't remember the past chapters all that clearly but I think she was around them a lot. If anything, she's been ditching Lily and Alice.

I could understand why Dorcas was cynical and sarcastic but now she's just plain mean. There's really no reason for her to yell at Lily and tell her to back off of the marauders. It's not like she controls who Lily can be friends with and who the marauder's can be friends with either. I don't know how Lily can just brush off being yelled at to get new friends and stay away from a group of people by one of her friends and be called stupid. I understand that Dorcas is upset and everything is kind of hectic for her but the way that she's dealing with things is unhealthy. She shouldn't take everything out on everyone else.

Everyone has been trying to help Dorcas out but she won't let them and now she's repaying the concern of her friends by yelling at them and being downright mean. She can't blame Lily for knowing things about her friends that she doesn't, it's not like Dorcas has exactly been asking about what's been going on with anyone else's life as of late. She literally tells Lily to forget about what happened between her and Severus and the fight and focus on her problem and finding Sirius.

I hope everything gets better between the characters and that everything gets figured out. Everyone just seems so unhappy but that's life, not everything goes right.

Author's Response: She is very emotional right now. I get so mad at Dorcas for the next few chapters as well. However, Lily isn't going to ask James just to have a date, she's going to get back at Severus, which is also really childish. It was mostly during the first week that she wasn't only not speaking to Lily and Alice, she wasn't with the marauders at all and that's weird for her.

Dorcas is just annoyed at everything and thinks the whole world is out to get her, and Lily does defend herself, because that's how Lily is. I mean, how would you react if you found out you were dying? I don't know what I would do, but this is what Dorcas does. She, in her own mind, is annoyed with Lily because she thinks the Lily's problems are infinitesimal compared to her's. Of course, Lily doesn't know that. Dorcas is horrid in this chapter.She really doesn't care about anyone else. This chapter enhances the worst part of her personality.

Everything will be resolved and onto the next problem soon! It's a tad bittersweet, to be honest.
