You described McGonagall perfectly without sounding like you just tweaked a description from the books. Really awesome job.

I'm highly impressed that you wrote a sorting hat song. Extremely impressed. And it's very good too. I usually see where people just gloss over sorting (like I have) or write a sorting hat song that is horrible. I had to think if I had read this one in the books because it is that well done.

You got the sorting hat perfectly. I know it isn't really a character but it has a very unique voice which you've managed to use and own in your very well written way. I loved how it talked about Sirius. I imagine it identified many students from pureblood families as being another so and so. I liked its train of thought too (I'm guessing the middle choice was Ravenclaw).

I cracked up at "needy headed nick." That seems perfect for how an 11 year old might mis-remember a name. Ooh, I really like how high of a value James is already placing on Sirius' friendship and opinion. Definitely fits well with how we see their relationship later in the books.

Wait, what's a Mexican wave of cheers? I'm going to google that.

I really like how the four little Marauders meet each other. Poor Peter is so nervous.

I'm excited to see Lily, Chloe, and Abigail develop together (character-wise).

How does Remus know magic is hard to do? Has he been using magic at home? (Just curious)

This is a really awesome chapter. I like the pace you've set for the plot and character development.

Author's Response: Hi Rose! Thanks for another awesome review - I've finally got round to answering it!

I'm glad you thought the description of McGonagall was good and didn't sound like it was just tweaked from the books :)

Wow, thank you for the compliments on my sorting hat song :) I remember taking an inordinate amount of time writing it!! So to know you thought it was good is just fantabulous :) As for the sorting hat's voice, unfortunately I can not take full credit for that, I had some help with Sirius's sorting from a friend. But I am glad you felt it was written well! Of course the middle choice was Ravenclaw - it is the best house ;) haha but Sirius definitely would not have fitted in there!

Glad you enjoyed James's attempts at remembering Nearly Headless Nick's name :) It was a way of avoiding a big chunk of the students being sorted ;) I felt that James would not have had a lot of magical friends his age (my explanation for that thought is that his parents were older and so their friends' children would have been older) and so he would have latche on to Sirius and value his friendship quite quickly. I'm glad you like that :)

Haha, I used 'a Mexican wave of cheers' to describe the different houses cheering at different times - like a Mexican wave with noise instead of standing up and putting your arms in the air ;)

Ha, yeah poor nervous little Peter, it takes him a while to become confident and comfortable with the others - but he does! Ah, no Remus hasn't been using magic at home, he's just thinking realistically about why you would need 7 years of schooling ;) Im glad you're excited to see the girls develop together!

Thanks again for the great review :) you always manage to make me smile with your reviews!
