Well that was indeed a very random plot bunny. I really did enjoy it. It made me laugh throughout. I adored the characterisation of June.
I thought you did extremely well with the reactions to her from Sirius and Remus, I really enjoyed them as characters. I thought it was brilliant how she managed to twist the denial into something it wasn't!
Overall it was a really good and well written one-shot! Well done :)

This was hilarious.my favourite line had to be "Don't mind him, it's just his time of the month again". It had me bursting into giggles.
This was a really original fic and I loved it. the characterisation of Junebug was spot on and I could just imagine her sitting in the holly spying. She was written so well that I could just about see her glee bursting out of the page.
I liked all the viewer irony in this story as we knew what was really going down but Junebug of course didn't. The whole story was beautifully written and it all flowed really well. It was also full of humour which I admire you for. Well done on an awesome story.Author's Response: Hehehe I'm glad you liked it :D I love my adorably stupid characters, of which I have a growing repertoire of. But Junebug is my first and my favorite ^__^ Report Review
I jove Junebug. Its a great name. A great character. A great e'erything.
I think Miss Janes and I might be braintwins. Though I might be less of a fangirl. But I do find the Marauders era to be my absolute favorite.
I discovered all your oneshots yesterday. And I've become addicted. Like nicotine and Diet Snapple Peach Iced Tea. Yurmm. :)
I adore and woship you.
(When I say that, I do mean your writing and am not as creepy as I must be coming off as, though I am just as awkward. Probably even more so than you'd expect.)
Huzzah!Author's Response: Hehehehe, June is my secret fangirl stalking everything put into full view.
I haven't written a oneshot in agees, I wrote a lot when I wrote Game, because I wasn't working on two WIPs, but writing two WIPs is already a lot of work *___*
Tehehe, not creepy at all! 8D I am a creeper myself; often, my own adoration is scary and capslock. Report Review
TEEHEE. HAI GINA.
I've been eyeing this one-shot for awhile. Because you are awesome and your stories are awesome and this looked like it was just made of awesome so I decided to be awesome and read it and what do you know, it was awesome. /awesome
Anyway. Very funny. I laughed. June is a very dedicated fangirl. I respect that.Author's Response: HAAAI. I've always adored this oneshot. Never got angry at it no. I actually think IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN -YOUR- STATUS UPDATE THAT GAVE ME THIS IDEA. I remember it being someone who frequented the forum a lot. But someone mentioned something about Sirius/OCs and somehow that turned into an idea about an OC who fangirls Sirius/Remus.
Much love to you~ Report Review
This fic was absolutely hilarious!
I'm pretty sure Junebug Janes is onto something with that hypothesis...
Since this is a humorous story, I really can't critiscize anything. I'll just ramble about my thoughts.
I was really drawn in by this story. I mean, how could I not be? This girl's spying on Sirus (swoon) and Remus (swoon) using, what is very special and original by the way, equipment. The whole concept just drew me in and the humourous writing style kept me reading.
I love Remus and Sirius in this! They actually come off like they're in denial of their connection! (In my twisted opinion.) Their bickering seems spot on. Their quick fix to the problem is absolutely fabulous. They've created a non-existant love triangle between the Marauders (well the ones that matter) to just appease this girl. I find it sweet.
Junebug Janes...oh where to start. Well, she seems like a fan girl with Luna Lovegood's personality. In other words, I love her. I would definitely read more stories about her exploits to prove her theories to be true.
Liberty (Libby103)Author's Response: Hi! And thanks ^__^ Teehehe, well the world will never know about their true connections ;) But somehow they make complete rubbish seem squishily-adorable. Appease, get rid of, it's all the same thing, really!
Thanks muchly again! Report Review
Loving this anniversary :D
I don't read slash often, but your summary tempted me.
Didn't expect you'd have me laughing, though. The alliteration in 'Audible Amplifier Attachment' was brilliant, and I just liked the idea of Junebug.
I can see Remus and Sirius interact like this; and at Sirius' comment 'Please, Moony on top?' I had to snort too. Not at Remus, just in general because I could picture that happening. And then when they brought James into it?! Nice touch.
Excellent as always, really enjoyed reading this!
xxx LeoAuthor's Response: Hiii! It's not real slash, really xD Junebug is adorrrable, my adorable nutty 'Puff (I believe everyone should have one). SIrius and Remus have always been my favorite of the Marauders, the perfect comedic duo.
Thanks muchly for the review! ^__^ Report Review
Hahahaha that was vaairy funny :) They are a great ship ;) Poor June... She is indeed very dedicated.Author's Response: Hee, thanks! :) Report Review
You might have let a random plot bunny run away, but it was so LOVELY, I am SO glad you let it!
I think the thing I loved most about this was its originality. I, on all my years at HPFF, have never read anything like this. Ever. Which, put quite simply, is just marvelous. I adore stumbling upon fiction which is original and organic and unique, and this was just the thing. It really was unique, which is the first thing you should be proud of when looking back at this.
Also, you've conjured a character out of thin air but she completely has LIFE to her. Do you know how hard that is to do? Especially without making the OC a Mary Sue? It's VERY HARD. VERY. And so you deserve ten thousand HP characters saluting you because Miss Junebug James is most definitely not a Mary Sue, but she's still lifelike at the same time. She beams and pipes up in the wrong places, and it's lovely. I think my favorite thing she said was: "Yes, Ilex aquifolium. It's quite poisonous." I was smirking, which is a rare thing to see me do, so kudos to you.
THIS WAS LOVELY. I LOVED IT. And the caps are quite necessary there, thank you very much. :D
xx RinAuthor's Response: Hullo Rin! Heee, I'm glad you like :D I do have a tendency to think up of the most absurd ideas, and I'm not sure if I should be proud or I should be scared, but I suppose I'll be a little of both. All my characters are created with a shiny place in my heart, Junebug especially because she's got all my crazy condensed into her little fangirl mind. To know she's made you smirk, well! *heart*
THANK YOU FOR THIS AWESOMELY FUZZY REVIEW :3 Report Review
This is brilliant. I was actually laughing throughout most of this, particularly where she keeps reciting the bits about coming to terms with something, denial etc, that bit was hilarious :D
My friend Julia said you were funny, and that fanfic that violated all the rules is one of my favourites! I salute you, sir ;D
Oh, and, p.s, if you want some more Remus/Sirius, this site is great: 711.persephone.nu...I hope this link worksAuthor's Response: OH HEY JULIA'S FRIEND 8D I have heard of and was expecting you. I am glad you like and that I've lived up to a certain expectation of crack-ery. I take much pride in it. Much woe to the cannot-be-published crack fic, though perhaps I might be able to finagle some appropriateness into it.
SIRIUS/REMUS, the closest to slash shipping I get. OOH THIS SITE IS ILLUSTRATED. BONUS POINTS~ Report Review
LOL. Junebug Janes, perfect name for her character. I LOVE HER CHARACTER XD She reminds me a bit of Luna, but more.. fangirly, I suppose :P
Wow Wow Wow! THE PLOT IS SO ORIGINAL!!!
And I always love a little slash cos I never read it, and this one is perfect! Remus/Sirius? LOL
Gosh, just a very entertaining story, I thoroughly enjoyed the read! :)
As always, your writing is brilliant!Author's Response: I LOVE HER TOO because she's so proudly crazy. I'm not a slash fangirl myself, but I have lots of friends who are and send me snippets :D And now I absolutely adore S/R. Thank you! Report Review
Random, yes, but absolutely genius! June was just hilarious, and so were Sirius and Remus's reactions to everything. "love is love, no matter the gender or species." - loved that xD Completely brilliant!Author's Response: Thanks! ^___^ I do love my cracktastic Sirius/Remus and their...creative... teamwork to get them out of sticky situations :D Report Review
I clicked on this story because I loved the banner, and the story did not let me down. This was histerical. Junebug reminded me very much of HPOTP-Luna. Very quirky. The whole spying thing was hilarious and the fact that Sirius and Remus had to pretend to be together so that she didn't convince ppl that they were was an amusing escapade. I loved the conversation about who the dominant person in the pair was and the little joke about once in a full moon. Very clever.
Great one shot!
MelissaAuthor's Response: I was thinking about the whole ~Marauder celebrity~ trope that goes around in a lot of fics, and I said to myself, 'Well, I know how fangirls work. And there are definitely fangirls who are off their rocker. Someone must write about that!'. And so, Junebug graced the Marauders era. And she totally managed to make Sirius/Remus canon, haha!
Thanks very much for the review ^___^ Report Review
Hahahahahaha...this was epic.Author's Response: Heh, thanks! ^___^ Report Review
Oh my god! Your writing never fails to amase me! That was so... funny and ridiculous. I love June - she's the most dedicated slash fan out there - I salute her, too! :DDD
Anyways, this was brilliant! You've got so many funny lines out there that I just cannot quote them all.
"Come on, you don't honestly believe I'd let you take the reins. You're far too hesitant. Maybe once in a full moon—" xD Good one, soo good :DDD
I really don't know what more to say except that you just made my day. That was so amusing. Maybe someday you can write more of Junebug, such a quirky girl. xD
HarleyAuthor's Response: Haha hello again! :D Sometimes I wonder if my true calling is to write crack fic by the bucketfuls. I'm a nutter if there ever was one ;)
And Sirius and Remus, I could squish them both. As dark as their lives were, something about their fandom personas just make me love the S & R sitcom.
I haven't got any other plots with Junebug, but rest assured, I have plenty of kooky characters in store in other fics! Thanks for the review :) Report Review
Hey, orderofthephoenix from the forums here! And this is my snowball coming at you :)
Random plot bunny indeed :) You've written this well and I'm glad I found it. Sometimes it's hard to find good slash and I'm glad your not averse to writing it. Well written, flawless grammar and a fun plot. 10/10Author's Response: Hey! :D Hehe it's not slash, really. It's like, imagined slash!

Hi, there! It's me!
What a way to start off my reviewness! This story is delightful! It's humorous, random, short and sweet. Junebug Jane is Lavender-esque, and not ashamed of her stalkingness one bit. She was funny. TeeHee!
Remus and Sirius--oh, those boys. -Sigh- They're great in this fic! I completely believe that the way they dealt with this could have happened, they seem like the type for sure. The way Sirius went with it even further and how it turned almost into a Soap Opera was really cute. Junebug Janes is almost unbelievable! But she is a fangirl, and I think you got that part down pat.
I thought it flowed really well, I didn't think anything was flat, and it ended in a good spot. The introductory paragraph goes a bit into the lengths Junebug Janes went to in order to learn everything about her targets, but I almost wish that there was a little bit more of that. Maybe you could have added a bit in about the lengths she goes to in order to follow them without being noticed.
But that might just be a personal perference, because the point of this story is that it's sort of a snapshot in time of the result of this girl's work, right? Great job! An extremely cute read! Thanks! =)Author's Response: Hullo! It is you! Sorry I've got no cannons ;) Indeed, Junebug is one proud delusional fangirl. Not sure if the Marauders have seen weirder, but she'd be somewhere at the top for sure! I'll think about the introduction (I wrote just enough to introduce the scene, so I might leave it like a snapshot, like you say); there's certainly a lot of potential hilarity, so I'll keep it in mind. Thank you for the review! :) Report Review
I love this! It was so funny and I wasn't expecting the plot at all I thought it was just another slash. But this is really funny! 10/10Author's Response: Thanks! :D Haha, I'm not even sure what category it fits in! My mind makes strange plots. Glad you enjoyed it! Report Review

So I was laughing all the way through. Siriusly, this was great. I love the name "Junebug Janes," alliterating names just ooze a quirky personality!
Favourite quotes (I'd copy paste the whole story, but I think that may diminish the appreciation of the review, so I shall restrain myself):
"She did not find his reaction surprising. He obviously hadn't realized his soul mate was there all along beside him and was likely overcome with an emotional epiphany."
Sirius overcome with emotional epiphany, that's a sight I'd love to see.
“The first step... is always denial,”
Remus seemed just as confused as Sirius had been earlier. “That’s... for when you’re about to die,” he said.
This line, it killed me. I was laughing out loud. It just, I don't even know.
“You know, I always imagined you as a secret Byronic hero, Remus... guiding Sirius in the throes of passion—”
Sirius snorted. “Please, Moony on top? It’s obviously—”
Remus whipped around. “Sirius!”
"Come on, you don't honestly believe I'd let you take the reins. You're far too hesitant. Maybe once in a full moon—"
Just... Oh my god. I love you. This is my admission, you are now being loved by a person on the internet you have never met because you have made them laugh, a lot. "Remus guiding Sirius in the 'throes of passion'" Hhahaha. I love how she talks about imagining the two of them and they don't comment on it. She gets away with it. Your characterization is how I imagine the two Marauders, and that makes me a very gleeful reader. And JJ's naiveté and the not TOO fluffy ending is just what brings it all together. And the "tension between James and Sirius".
Okay I could keep going on and on, and the review would be longer than the story.
So I shall conclude with a simple and traditional:
Great Job, favourited!Author's Response: Ahhh sudden influx of reviews (and this lengthy one!) makes me so happy *__*
Oh Sirius, Sirius, Sirius. I know in canon you're a deep and meaningful character, but I love the hyper puppy fanon you, the one who's emotionally dense and stares blankly at everything 8D The death line, I must give credit to my wonderful beta-friend, who informed me that it's for death, when I thought it was for... everything.
It's alright! I love you too! Because you left a spazzy awesome review *hearts* :D And Junebug is the Happiest. Fangirl. Ever. I am so jealous of her. Because she indeed gets away with it! I tried to make it ridiculous but not ridiculously ridiculous, if that makes sense at all. I can almost see this happening! I'm sure the Marauders had their stalker fans. Ehehe.
Thanks for the review! :) Report Review
I LOVED IT! Junebug is so adorable! This story managed to make me laugh, like, full on cackles. I love the nosy 'noculars! Sirius and Remus are 2 of my fav characters and I love how you portrayed them.

Didn't mean to capslock that, but now I've typed it it kind of emphasised the amount of times I almost smacked my head off the desk because I was bent double giggling. Especially at this line: 'Sirius snorted. "Please, Moony on top? It’s obviously—"'
Sorry, too funny. I dunno what Sirius is on about, Remus would blatantly wear the trousers in the relationship.
I loved June(bug!) as a character. She's like the awesome offspring of Luna and a Weasley Twin, although for that to be possible there would need to be a heck of a lot of time-travel and canon-bashing happening. I can dream. Just like I can dream that Remus and Sirius are really meant to be, and that Remus is a glorious Byronic hero in a big poofy shirt.
Aaaah the mental images are supreme.
Anyway, this was hilarious. It made me chuckle like...er, two short chuckling things ;DAuthor's Response: WAIT WHY IS YOUR HEAD ON YOUR DESK IN THE FIRST PLACE but I shall not question it.
Remus so would. I don't know why but I totally cannot see him ~giving in~ to whatever Sirius wants. Of course, I can also picture Sirius in a skirt trying to look pretty for him. ...I'm not sure what that says about me.
Your description made my brain hurt, but in a good way! Poofy shirt. snerk. I can totally see him be all not amused in it. And dreaming is the theme of this fic! If it's substantive enough to hold a theme. The dream of a fangirl. What gloriousness.
