Review:AlexFan says:
I love how innocent this is, it's very clear that these characters don't know that something bad is going to happen to them and I just feel so bad for them because I can't help but think about all of the horrible things that happens to everyone in the end.

The thing that I loved though was that you showed that Snape and Lily's relationship was already off to a bit of a rocky start when he made that comment about Petunia. Lily may have brushed it off and thought nothing of it but there'll be more comments like that as time goes on.

I've got a question though, is your story only going to be about everyone's first year or are you going to spend a few chapters going through all of the years?

I was going to point out that first year's can't join the team but then I thought about it and I don't think there was anything mentioned about first year's not trying out for a Quidditch team (or if there was, I don't remember), it just said that they weren't allowed to have a broom.

It makes sense that James would get on the team though, it's practically expected of something like that to happen to a Potter.

Anyway, lovely chapter and I look forward to more of this story!

Author's Response: Thank you for yet another lovely review, AlexFan :) Sorry it's taken me so long to respond to them all - I am really grateful for each of them!

Ahh, I feel bad for them as well, their story is such a sad one :( but the bad stuff has to happen... unless it became totally AU and they all lived happily ever after ;) But I couldn't do that, it was the tragedy of their story that drew me into reading/writing marauder stories!

I'm glad you liked that about Snape and Lily's relationship. I feel he would have been very dismissive of Petunia and would not have understood or appreciated Lily's relationship with her. I think he would not have seen what was wrong with what he said, and in his mind was trying to make Lily feel better. But yes, this is the start of a very slow decline in their friendship.

My plan is to write from the first year right through to their murder (if I ever get there!). But I am unsure whether to write it all in one mammoth novel or to break it down into two stories, or to have a year per story. I'll make my mind up at some point! It will most likely be two stories - the school years and then the post-Hogwarts years.

Haha, I thought people would say something about James joining the team... There is no rule to say first years can't join the team, but I think it's a rare occasion, and I'm not sure a first year on a school broom would make the team ;) I don't think this would stop James from trying out though. The trials are coming up in the next chapter ;)

Thank you again for the lovely review!
