Review #1, by girly1393Forget Me Not: Chapter 5

3rd August 2016:
I usually make a point to review each chapter, but I was so swept up in the story that I couldn't bear to wait even that long for the next chapter. You definitely left enough hints to convince me that something unusual had happened and that what Lily was living for most of the story was not reality, but I had no idea about the real ending. This was a great mystery and I loved how it showed them both how to be together. Really, an awesome story.

Review #2, by girly1393Stuck on the Puzzle: It Concludes

1st August 2016:
I truly enjoyed this whole story. It was funny, clever, and appropriately adorable, with an extra dose of sap right at the end to send you away smiling. You made this so engaging and so, even though I knew how it must ultimately end, I was still absolutely delighted to discover the path it took.

1st August 2016:
Okay, I completely love your voice. I am so completely engaged and am able to so easily suspend disbelief while reading, and that is such a rare gift with fanfiction. You're awesome, and I can't wait to read the conclusion.

1st August 2016:
I hope we see the quill again, because that bit was golden. I also appreciate the insights into both of their minds, and the ways that you can see how they care about each other, even without truly knowing it.

1st August 2016:
This is absolutely adorable! The penpal idea made me a little nervous at first, I'll admit, but you've done it so well so far, and I can't wait to see what else you do with it!

Review #7, by girly1393To Be a Gentleman: Back to School

12th April 2015:
I can't believe there was an update! I have been away from fanfiction for a few years now, and I'll admit this was the first story I checked on when I arrived back to the website. And lo and behold, there's an update! As usual, your writing is beautiful and elegant. It was the right amount of suspenseful, endearing, and intriguing, and I am just dying to know more! I love Noah's character, I'm actually rooting for a him a little, even though I know this is James/Lily. And the fact that Lily is back at Hogwarts, it's just perfect. I am so excited to see more and I can't wait to find out how this all works together.

Author's Response: Oh hello! I'm so glad you're still around. :)

Thanks for leaving a lovely review. It's nice to know people are still reading this, and it's especially nice to know that you liked the update. Hope you're well!

Review #8, by girly1393If Wishes Were Fishes: Wish Upon a Fish

7th August 2012:
This has to be one of the best stories I've read on this site; it is unique and well-thought. It's nitty-gritty and intimate in ways others just aren't. I reacted to your characters the way I react to real people; they were so realistic and dimensional. Your plot went all over the place, in a good way, keeping me interested and entertained and sometimes really angry with your characters. I loved it, every minute of it. It was truly spectacular and I had so much fun reading it.

Author's Response: aw thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it and thank you for being such a dedicated reader/reviewer! I really appreciate all the support, thank you!

22nd July 2012:
I loved this one; there's so much innocence and joy with them, but they all have their own troubles. I love how you bring them all together. Fantastic job!

Author's Response: Thank you very much! I've got rubbish writers block at the moment but hopefully the next chapter won't be too far away! Keira :)

Review #11, by girly1393If Wishes Were Fishes: Deja Vu

1st June 2012:
Oh my god. That is some pretty messed up relationship stuff. I can't wait to find out what it all means. This has been a really great story and I'm a little sad it's almost over, but it has been worth it all.

Author's Response: aw thanks! Glad you liked it, but yeah def sad that it's almost over :( I try not to think about it...

Review #12, by girly1393Mischief Managed: Second Year: Returning

29th May 2012:
This story is so much fun! I love reading it, I get so wrapped in it. How you incorporate the war (which I'm impressed you knew started so early, because most people don't) in pieces but still have all the fun and the different elements of all the characters, it's incredible. I love how James tries to apologize for that one time he spoke to Lily without thinking but it keeps spiraling! It makes their dynamic and their whole story is so cool and as you build up to it, it'll just get more epic! And Sirius with his family; I can see the beginnings of what we know he does in his later years. With Remus' secret, you seem to know exactly how to bring it all together; you've even got those mischief-makers piecing together the story in the last chapter! I love Peter's back story, it really changes how I see him within the Marauder dynamic and how he'll eventually behave. I just love this story, it's so incredible. I'm so excited to see how to take it through everything. You said at the beginning something about mistakes, but they're so easy to overlook in the midst of this story's awesomeness. You even have the Prewett twins and Frank Longbottom and Malfoy the right ages! I don't even do that sometimes! (By the by, you've probably heard this, but James' birthday is in March.) You've got me hooked until the very end.

Author's Response: I'm so sorry for this extremely late reply! I've just finished my last exam which means I finally have time to respond to your really kind review and begin to start writing the next chapters! :)

Wow! Thank you so much for that! This review really made my day!

James.. is in his own world really - he hasn't really ever needed to adapt and change to fit in with everyone else - I think it's part of what makes him a leader in the future.

They're getting there - all three of the boys have been brought up in a world where werewolves are monsters and wicked - remus doesn't fit that 'quota' so they don't recognise the signs immediately. :)

I've fixed James' birthday (for some reason I wrote the wrong month originally!) - so thank you for pointing it out!

Just.. thank you so much for such a wonderful review! I'm going to write the next chapter this week, so depending on the queue - it will be up soon! :)

Keira :)

Review #13, by girly1393If Wishes Were Fishes: Lost (and Gone Forever)

18th May 2012:
You leave me literally grasping for more story at the end of every chapter. This has built up so amazingly and I can sort of see how the prologue and these last two chapters will coalesce. Stunning, really grand.

Author's Response: aw thank you so much! i'm glad you like it! And I personally, am rather relieved it's all fit together this well haha. It's always slightly nervewracking making it all fit together!

Review #14, by girly1393The Next Great Adventure: To the well-organized mind . . .

4th March 2012:
I just watched 7.2 for the first time since theaters and this fit so perfectly with how I felt at the end. This was really wonderful. You made the distinction between accomplishments and family so clear and did it so well. Really, so beautiful.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad I got it right, and I'm really glad you enjoyed reading it and thought it was beautiful :) thank you so much!

This was so powerful, you had me in tears early on. This is astounding and I hope you go far with it. I'm so curious to see how you reunite these characters some day.

Author's Response: So glad you liked it so far!

Review #16, by girly1393If Wishes Were Fishes: Secrets, Snogs, and Silly Wishes

24th February 2012:
That is so not what I thought was going to happen. Like, everything in this chapter, I expected in like five or six chapters. And about Downtown Abbey and Celia, I've just started watching it on Netflix, but I think I see your point about Lavinia.

Author's Response: Ohh I hope that's not a bad thing that it came sooner than you expected? the drama doesn't end here though!

Review #17, by girly1393If Wishes Were Fishes: Cupid's Chokehold

20th February 2012:
That was pretty impressive. I'm a little stunned. James really should have stayed out of it, but Alex definitely deserved that slap. I am really curious to see how this plays out.

Author's Response: haha thanks! Alex definitely deserved that... I've wanted to write that for SO long. And I'll have more up soon :)

Review #18, by girly1393If Wishes Were Fishes: Little Lion Man

11th February 2012:
That name is actually horribly fitting for James. And I just wanted to scream at him for trying to fix her up with Alex--he doesn't know the full story, why wouldn't he get the full story first? Or get help? Or use his brain farther than getting her out of his head? Oi, that boy.

Lily's party was nice, I really liked that they did that for her. It's a shame the falling out with Severus happened on the party night, but it was inevitable.

Author's Response: Ha, isn't it? I wrote this chapter a while ago and couldn't think of a title for it for AGES. and randomly one day on my way to school it came on my ipod and I was like "SO PERFECT"... so there you go :P Anyways, I'm glad you like this chapter! I'll have the next up soon :)

Review #19, by girly1393Petrichor: burning books

18th January 2012:
That was astoundingly beautiful. The progression of Lily and Severus, and it had such little dialogue. The way you used emotions to describe surroundings and change, that was really powerful. It was really, really incredible.

Author's Response: Thank you!

I also like the fact that it had little dialogue, and I tried to use them very carefully, because I wanted everybody to capture the moment.

Thank so much girly1393, I am so glad you liked it :)

Review #20, by girly1393Growing Up Gilderoy: The Lily Evans Appreciation Group

6th January 2012:
Oh my good Merlin, that was so absolutely hilarious! I am so in love with this story. Gilderoy things that because of this pact James won't go for Lily, but he's doing the same thing to Gilderoy: agreeing in order to wipe out the "competition", even if Gilderoy has no chance with Lily. I excitedly await the next chapter!

Review #21, by girly1393If Wishes Were Fishes: Atonement

6th January 2012:
Truthfully, my view of Celia doesn't change much. I'd known she was a three-dimensional character with probably a good side, but I still want her to get the bleepity away from James. While I appreciate the extra viewpoint of Lily's, I'm not sure this goes on the list of my favorite chapters. Because we already knew so much of it (although now with Lily's thoughts), it felt a bit too redundant to me. I did like it, don't get me wrong, but the eager, unrealistic reader in me wanted blood and guts (metaphorically, of course). I look forward earnestly to more.

Author's Response: haha I totally understand, about celia and the redundancy of the chapter. But I just felt this was one of those instances where seeing both points of view was a good idea haha. There will be much more action in the next chapter, I promise :)

Review #22, by girly1393Operation Happy Ending: Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

6th January 2012:
Hm, an interesting development there. I can say, that ending bit with Remington, not what I was expecting. Also, I can say with absolute certainty that I had entirely no clue that Remington had any feelings for James whatsoever, except the desire to spite Lily by getting with him. So that was a shocker, too. Lily hearing all of it: icing on the cake of the whole chapter! That was too perfect. And then she took the information to heart and tried to figure out what to do about it. And then, and then ladies and gents, she danced with him! A productive chapter, I'd say. Which just means it'll get all mucked up next chapter. That's half the fun, right?

Author's Response: Oh gosh I love your reviews! I'm so happy that you liked this chapter. Well of course it will all get mucked up in the next chapter, life can be so predictable that way can't it? Haha. But I think the question really, is HOW and by WHO will it be mucked up. Because I'm telling you now, neither Lily nor James saw this next one coming.

Can't wait to hear what you think about the next one! Thanks again for your awesome reviews :D

Review #23, by girly1393Stupid: Stupid Secrets: #32-35

6th January 2012:
That was just the perfect ending, giving the journal to James. Really powerful. It's adorable that he'd kept that necklace for over five years, waiting until he was brave enough to give it to her. It was a wonderful perception, the whole story was, of Lily and James and I absolutely adore it. Really magnificent. Bravo to you.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it- but you should know this isn't the end! there's one more chapter and then I'm going to put up a sequel!
but I'm so glad you liked the story- and thank you so much for your lovely praise.
thanks so much for reviewing again!

Review #24, by girly1393Twice Defied: New Beginnings & Old Endings

6th January 2012:
I will agree that this is not the most exciting chapter in the world; I could sense your disappointment with it. It is not a bad chapter, just uneventful. I like the difference between how Lily and James are dealing with the in-between times, the contrast of their personalities. Sometimes, they seem to blend into similar people the longer a story goes, and I appreciate that you keep them so distinct. I am so excited you updated, and I can't express how enthused I am you are updating again. I look forward to the next chapter and the rest of the story.

Author's Response: First off, thank you for coming back to read and review after all that time! It is really heartening to see a few people coming back; a big part of me was starting to think it wouldn't happen. (And, really, I'd have no one to blame but myself for that!)

You're right, I think the big problem here is lack of action. In fact, that's really what I was struggling with a lot--I didn't feel like it would be right to jump ahead to something more eventful, but anything else just felt filler-ish. Which is sort of what this chapter ended up being. I really appreciate that feedback. It's helped me get a bit more focused for the next chapter, which will hopefully be more eventful!

On another note, that is fantastic to hear that Lily and James are remaining distinct. I do worry about that sometimes as I'm writing--I'll write out a line of dialogue for one of them, and realize it's the other's voice instead! :P So I do try to keep them unique, and I'm glad it's working.

Thanks again for reviewing...more to come soon, hopefully!

Review #25, by girly1393Dreamcatcher: Happy Hazel.

22nd December 2011:
That was astoundingly wonderful. I was definitely not anticipating the ending, but I can say I am extremely pleased by it. I really, really love this chapter. The suspension, the tension, you just held me on the edge the whole time! It was incredible, and I really hope Lily doesn't say no. Happy holidays and I can't wait for more!

Author's Response: You're lovely! Thank you :) Your reviews make me happy. I will have more up as soon as work lets up. Thank you so much for reading! I'm so glad you're liking it!
