Hiya! Here from the Ravenclaw review battle, on behalf of team blue ;)

Ahhh, it's been ages since I read Lily/James, I'd forgotten how much I love them! You got off to a great start portraying their typical relationship here, I loved it :)

Your characterisation of Lily is really good! The way you've written here seems to match up with what little we see of her in the books, as well as giving her more depth and making her really realistic and likeable. I feel so bad for her here! I can really feel her stress and frustration - I tend to get like that before exam season too, haha.

I like Lucinda. She seems like a fun character and even though she might not be Lily's good books right now, it shows through that she's a good friend :) I especially like her name! Something that really pulls me out of fic is when OCs have really unrealistic name, but Lucinda definitely sounds like a Marauder era Hogwarts student, which is awesome!

I really enjoyed reading this :) So far it has all the classic elements of a Lily/James story and you've got good characterisation, good dialogue, good storytelling :) Well done!

Author's Response: Hello again Maia! Thank you for the great review :)

Haha, I'm glad this story reminded you how much you love Lily/James :D you've got to love a bit of Jily ;)

I'm really glad you thought my characterisation of Lily was good and that you found her realistic and likable. I don't like it when she is portrayed to be perfect because no-ones perfect. Yeah poor Lily, she's very stressed and frustrated here. I'm exactly the same during exam season - I was a nightmare to live with when I was at uni haha!

I'm quite fond of Lucinda, so I'm really pleased you like her :) Ha, she's not in Lily's good books right now but they'll make it up, she really is a good friend to Lily ;) I'm also glad you like her name! Although your comments here have made me a bit dubious about one of my OC's name in my other Marauder fic! I agree about the realistic names though :)

I'm so glad you enjoyed this. I started it for a challenge and I'm enjoying writing a bit of Marauder romance - I needed to get it out of my system a bit as in my other fic they are all 11, not really a story for romance ;)

Thank you again for the lovely review :)
