Review #26, by andris53 First Year - The Beginning (Part I)

2nd January 2009:
haha i really enjoy it so far. You have very good writing ability, and a good sense of humour. If I had to criticize something, In my opinion you use a little too much italics in your stories but thats me being nitpicky. Keep it up.

Author's Response: Thank you! I never thought about the italics thing. Actually, nobody has ever pointed it out to me before :D

I liked it. It's very well-written and real, you know? I liked the fact that Sirius is not that much against his family.
Update soon, will you?

Review #30, by Slide First Year - The Beginning (Part I)

23rd December 2008:
This is really good! Something about the title caught me, and I'm not sure why... within the context, there's a lot of nostalgia and meaning to it, and I'm a sucker for that sort of thing. I usually skip over Marauder stories, finding most of them to be excuses for mediocre Sirius romances, but this looked promising so I gave it a go.

And I'm glad I did! The characterisation of Sirius is particularly strong, and he makes a great deal of sense. I enjoy how he's different mostly because he thinks; it's not that he's Seen the Light at the tender age of eleven, it's just that he happens to have a mind slightly more open so the seeds of change can be sown. James displayed the right level of confident morality bordering on arrogance, again hints of how he'll develop. And of course, I can't fault the ending!

My only - faint - criticism would be that theirs is a fairly sophisticated syntax for an eleven year-old, but I know first-hand it's a bugger to write it properly, and I also imagine both James and Sirius would have received rather intensive educations from a young age. Either way, it's only a minor issue, if even an issue at all, and partly because it's something I'm always paranoid of in my own writing. So there, I'm projecting on you.

Overall, excellent stuff, and I'll definitely be following this with interest. I don't usually give 10/10, but just for being so pleasantly surprised, I'll break a habit.

Author's Response: wow, this story has brought in several people who said they don't normally read Marauder fics! I know exactly what you mean about the title. This is actually a title that I see used quite often. I normally try to be a little more original, but I saw the same things in it that you did. It is perfect, so I had to use it.

I'm really glad you liked Sirius. I want his change to the "muggle-lover" side to be subtle and realistic. He certainly hasn't seen the light yet, but James will have a big influence on him. You've caught exactly what I wanted you to. He's open and thoughtful and intelligent.

I can accept your criticism :) The same thought occurred to me while I was actually writing. But I shrugged it off, figuring they were intelligent boys anyway. You and I must think alike.

Thanks for the rating :) This is one of the nicest, most detailed reviews that I've received in a long while. it is greatly appreciated :)

Wow, that was great. I'm not usually a fan of marauder fics, but I really liked this. I thought your characterisations of James and Sirius were great, and I also liked the way you portrayed the Blacks.

Who made your banner, by the way? It's stunning.

Author's Response: Wow, you're the second person so far who's read this claiming not to be a Marauder fic fan! How exciting.

I love James and Sirius so much. Thank you for the compliment on their characterization. It is the only reason I write. And I love the Black family. Well, I hate to love them.

I made the banner. I'm glad you like it :)

Love it so far :D
I usually only read fics from Hermione's pov, but the marauraders are just so much fun and I couldn't pass this up. You've made me love James and Sirius. Update soon!

Author's Response: Aww, thank you! It is always thrilling to hear that somebody who doesn't usually read this sort of thing enjoyed it.

James and Sirius are very dear to me. I'm so glad you can see it too.

Review #33, by Padfoot36 First Year - The Beginning (Part I)

23rd December 2008:
I can see this being a very interesting collection of short stories and you've won me over with this one. I like the chemestiry that you created between Sirius and James. I love the part about how Sirius uses the term mudblood without a second though.

Then how you potray him as not hating his family yet like some people do. I think its going to be a good short story collection and I've added it to my favorites. =D

Author's Response: Thank you :D I love Sirius and James to death. It's fun to let them play off of each other.

I don't think Sirius would have hated his family right off the bat. I think he might have had his doubts and dislikes about the way things were run deep down inside, but I don't think he'd recognize them right away.

Thank you for reviewing!
