Review:Mrs Ravenclaus says:
Hi again!

I just noticed that you use apostrophes instead of speech marks like I do, and itís always nice to find a kindred spirit because I always think they look much nicer.

I really liked the traditional feel with McGonagall telling them about the houses and the small house rivalries. It brought me back to the Philosopherís Stone era, where everything was happy and calm before the storm emerged. Itís rather like that for the Marauders too because so much changed for them as well as for the Golden Trio.

Kudos for the great Sorting Hat, it was just like the ones in the books and really interesting too. I always think itís great when authors go to those lengths to include their own songs.

James and Siriusís banter with one another was brilliant with the talk of dung bombs and I love the beginnings of their friendship. Then you interspersed the darker elements such as Siriusís cousins in really well. I always loved the Black family (I may have said this before) so seeing them pop up now and then is so exciting.

The sorting for all of the Marauders was really interesting and it was great to observe how all of their reactions to it were different. I felt rather sorry for Peter knocking over the pumpkin juice when they first all met, but then he seemed to have this odd sort of courage about him to the way he integrated himself into the group which was really sweet to observe.

I thought this was a wonderful introduction to all of their lives and really cute! Great chapter :D

Author's Response: Hello again :) I am on a roll with these responses tonight... yay! It's about time, huh?!

Yay! You use apostrophes instead of speech marks too? I totally agree that they look much nicer and neater than speech marks! Yay for kindred spirits :)

I'm glad you liked the traditional feel of McGonagall's scene, I ummed and ahhed about having that in there as I was worried it would be too much like Philosopher's Stone. Obviously, in the end I decided to put it in there, I wanted the Marauder era students to have the full Hogwarts experience ;) heehee..

Thank you for the kudos for the Sorting Hat! Again, I almost didn't put it in, but I just couldn't leave it out!! I think I will skim over the sorting hat song in the next years of the story though ;)

I'm so glad you thought James and Sirius's banter was good :D I really enjoy writing their interactions so it's good to hear you enjoyed reading the beginning of their friendship :) And the other Blacks will be popping up a few times in this story, I hope you enjoy seeing them (if you read on)!

I found the sorting ceremony quite hard to write and it took me ages to write it! So to hear that you found it interesting is great :) Ha, poor Peter! He is a rather awkward, clumsy character to start with in this, but he gets over that as he starts to get friendly with the others :) I hate it when Marauder stories don't include Peter or have him as a really unlovable character, so I am hoping to make people start to love him (just a little bit... until his betrayal anyway!)

Thanks for the fantabulous review :)
