I didn't even get to read this chapter, so when I saw it was updated, I don't think the noise I made was human.
GWAMES! So many Gwames feels. Oh, my God, and Freddy was back (I love Freddy. I don't think I've mentioned that enough before) but Freddy was back and there was lots of Quidditch, and SO MUCH GWAMES. :D :D :D
*fangirling like mad*
Ahhh, Hanna, how I've missed this. ^_^ Report Review
This is amazing, Jess. Seriously, I love your other James', but I feel this one could be just as canon as the warm loving James. I love Lily's perceptiveness, and the tone you've used while writing it is amazing.
Gah, why are you perfect? *dies from feels*Author's Response: Thank you so much, Adele! I'll be honest and say that I was really nervous about this oneshot because it's so different from what I'm used to, but I'm so glad that you enjoyed it!!! Your opinion means so much to me so I really appreciate the support! And don't be silly, you're perfect girl!
Lots of love,
Jess :D Report Review
I love this story, and I'm so glad it won the Golden Paw Award. The only bit of crit would be to add in some more description, for places and scenes and the like, as not only would it help the overall feel of each chapter, but help smooth out the flow, as sometimes I feel it can be a bit jumpy and I get confused about what's going on. That said, love the story and can't wait for an update. Congrats on the award! Report Review
Ahh, Jily. My babies. I love them so much. They make my heart melt and I want nothing more than to find my own personal James Potter. *swoon*
This one-shot was great. Not only because Jily, but because flying in front of a bludger for someone else is such a James thing to do (in my opinion anyway) and I feel you got his characterization spot on. Lily's adorable with her blushing and lip biting and this story was totally brilliant. I wish it was longer and we found out what happens at the party (although I have an inkling :P )
Ah, I just can't get over my Jily babies.
Wonderful one-shot. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. ^_^

Thank you so much for leaving me a birthday review!! I appreciate it :) I'm also really sorry for how long it's taken for me to respond to this review!
I love James/Lily too!! I could just sit and read them all the time &hearts
To hear you say the characterisation was good is such a relief! I can't even tell you. It's my one greatest fear when writing characters I love this much.
Thank you so much for leaving such a lovel review for me! I appreciate it :)

I swear I've review this like three times, but apparently none of them have actually been submitted. (AWKWARD)
Anyway, I was just hunting through my favourites, and I saw this and decided to read it again. My God, Jas. I fell in love with it all over again. Esther is such a brilliant character, and Remus melts my heart. I love this so much Jas, and I feel terrible for you not receiving my previous reviews. :(
Keep up your magnificent work. You're an amazing author and I swear you'll be published one day.
Love you, Jas. And thank you so much for the story. As I said, I'm so happy to have fallen in love with it all over again.
- Adele. ^_^Author's Response: haha, well this one went through :)
aww thank you (let me love you *tackles with hugs*)
Thank you! I swear you're one of the only reasons I'm still writing - you and your amazing support :D
Love you too!

Jess! Guess who finally crawled out from under that rock labeled 'School' only realise you'd updated? (If you guessed me, you guessed right.) This was so good. I had totally forgotten how much I loved your James. And I swear, Spencer is my spirit animal. But I love that James has told her, and you wrote the whole scene really well. I can't wait to see what happens at Hogsmeade (talk about throwing Spencer in the deep end!) because I can just imagine her reactions to all the wonderful and whacky stuff they have in the Wizarding world. Ahh, Jess, it's been too long and I've missed you and your stories. Update soon! (And I swear I won't take so long to read and review next time!)

*hyperventilating, because if I don't get first I'm going to go on some crazy rampage*
I can't believe this chapter is finally out. I've been waiting forever and now I need the next one, but I need the next lot of Gwen and James even more and oh my God, Hanna, why can't you just write all the time? Like, screw sleeping and eating and even breathing if you have to, just so you can update faster and I don't care if that's a selfish request from me, because I am in love with your stories so much I am going to die and in my head I've written this whole thing without saying a breath, oh my God.
But seriously. New chapter. Soon, missy. I am in neeed! D:Author's Response: Breathe, Adele, breathe ^^
You will get the next chapter as soon as possible, but first you'll get some Gwames! I'll try to write as fast as I can and not get distracted by graphic making d:
But thank you, dear ♥ Report Review
No! You can't leave it like that! Update! I'm desperate for an update! And why can't James just say he wants it to be real? That would solve everything. My God, I need to know what happens next. D:Author's Response: oh dear! Well, james is a stubborn jerk and gigi is a stubborn... girl. yeah. that made sense, right? Report Review
I liked this one. It was great to see what they boys behaved like after they'd done the raid and I'm interested to see Jem's progress with Sirius. That's coming up soon, yeah?
Anyway, update soon. ^_^
- Adele :)Author's Response: Yay I'm so glad you likes it, my most dedicated reviewer! hahaha, and yes there will be more progress with Sirius and Jem though you might not like what's in the next chapter. Had to spice it up. Thanks for reviewing x Report Review

Once again, nice chapter. Wish we'd seen the Marauders raid their room though, but oh well. How many chapters is this story planned to be?
- AdeleAuthor's Response: Hello again!
Thankyou so much, and that's going to be in the next chapter, that's a promise. Thought, it's not going to be from the boy's point of view, i thought that once I've finished the story i could do a one shot of the raid, just a thought. I've planned out the story and if it goes well then i assume the story will be around 35-39 chapters. Report Review
I don't even have words for this. Susan... You're incredible. This is honestly one of the best stories I've read on this site and I'm in awe at your talent with words. It's heart wrenching, and the way you spun Rose was just remarkable. I'm still struggling to articulate my feelings.
Beautiful, Susan. Absolutely beautiful.Author's Response: This review has left me breathless! It came at an opportune moment when I needed to hear such words, and I cannot thank you enough. Writing this story proved to be a far stranger experience than I expected, and by the end, I wasn't even sure whether it was any good. Hearing from you that the opposite is the case is just amazing.
Thank you very much for reading and reviewing this story! It means a lot to have heard from you. ^_^ Report Review
He told her! I want to write all this in caps but to do that on my phone will take forever, but that does not undermine the shouty-ness of my words here, Jess!
He bloody told her! My God, FINALLY! (one word, much easier to do than a sentence). The whole Robyn/Spence fight seems a bit unfair on Robyn's behalf if you ask me. It's not like she would have answered any of Spencer's questions honestly, and I'd I had to hide a secret like that, I'd try and avoid the subject as actively as possible, but anyway.
I still love James. I love James so much it physically hurts me, and I want him all for myself. Spencer can have Freddy (I secretly think they'd get along great (I can still see Freddy rolling up out the front and calling 'get in, loser, we're going shopping!'))
Ah, Jess, this was brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. You're wonderful and cooler than Catwoman. ^_^
- Adele :)Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! It was definitely a fun chapter to write and many of you aren't very happy with Robyn haha. And aww I don't think Spencer would really appreciate it if you took her man haha. But I actually have some serious Spencer/Freddy shippers out there haha.
Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'll try to update soon :D
~Jess :D Report Review
Blegh, finally read all 25 chapters. I would have reviewed as I went, but I was desperate to get to the next chapter, so yeah. My God, I love James, I really do, but I still ship Coco/Tyson, although Coco/Theo is my OTP. I love her with James, but she and Theo are engaged to be married and you just can't mess with stuff like that. *nods solemnly*
I liked the ScoRose subplot, and fingers crossed we'll see more development of that, no? I wish we'd get to see Teddy. There's so much mention of him but no interaction, which is a shame as I'd love to see how you conveyed him after your different approach on Victoire.
I still think Frannie is a slightly unfortunate name, but hey, you win some, you lose some.
You've also got a very perculiar take on Albus, which I'd love to see explored more. At the moment he just seems to be there occassionally, shrugs a lot, offers insightful comments then disappears a bit. We don't seem much of his relationship with James really (we've just been told about it, but haven't seen anything other than the Quidditch match, but even then, we saw little of Albus afterwards) and he and Scorpius don't seem like the type of people to be friends. Scorp is funny and outgoing and Albus just appears to be there for convenience sake. I'm not saying this is the case, and you probably have something up your sleeve for later chapters, but I just thought I'd point these bits out incase they were slipping through unnoticed. A small scene or two would clear it up, even Coco just noticing it from across the room or something, just to give it more depth. But then again, I'm a charactrisation freak, so it might just be me. :P
All of that aside, I'm enjoying this way more than I thought I would. I kept seeing it everywhere and thought I'd give it a go and am so glad I did. I love how Rox is a main part of the story, that makes me really happy, and I love George, even if Fred's a git. >_<
Anyway, dying for an update and I think I'll read 'Beauty Queen' next. I'll review it when I do. Keep up the great work, love!
- Adele :)Author's Response: So I'll start of answering this review by congratulating you for making it through this monster of a story. Like seriously, I have a feeling if I wasn't the author of this story I wouldn't read it. And half the time I can't even read this story because like the first half is just so cringe-worthy.
But I'm really really glad you like the story :) And I'm happy you like James, because I worry about him sometimes. But yes Coco/Tyson is my OTP in this story. Like I want to put them together so bad it hurts. But it's interesting you like Coco/Theo because in my opinion Theo is just too.. perfect. You know?
I'm glad you like the ScoRose subplot! I actually have a hate for the ScoRose pairing in general so I was just trying to put a little spin on it. But yes you shall see more of a development on that!
As for Teddy, I do get where you're coming from but he's not actually an important character at all which is why I haven't had him and Corinne have an actual interaction. I honestly just imagine him as a lapdog for Victoire that just kind of stands there while she makes all the decisions.
Aw I kind of like Frannie's name! It's short for Francesca and I think that's like a really pretty name but since it's so fussy i figured she needed a nickname.
And yes I definitely see your Albus point. I do have a scene in the next chapter that he'll be in and hopefully that'll clear up all your questions about him. But I think him and Scorp do belong as friends because Scorpius is the really crazy and outgoing one while Al is very serious and keeps Scorp grounded by making sure he doesn't do something too stupid. But yeah I totally understand being a characterization freak. I am one myself but sadly I decided to include wayyy too many characters in this story so sometimes it's hard to convey all of their characters.
I'm glad your enjoying the story! That makes me very happy :) And yes Roxy is amazing so of course she's a main part of the story!
Well, seeing as it took me a gross amount of time to answer this review, the next chapter's already out but I hope you like it! As for reading BQ, it's a very different kind of story so I hope you like it as well if you end up reading it :)
Thank you so much for reviewing!

Ha, I'll leave you a better review for the next chapter because I'm desperate to read it, but I agree with your A/N. I totally want Corinne and Tyson to end up together. I ship it. I ship it hard.Author's Response: AHah sadly we are a small ship of Tyson/Corinne lovers. But yes, I want them to end up together too! They are just too cute for each other, but I have a feeling all my readers would kill me if I made that happen.

Mine mine mine.
Reading this through a second time, I like it even more. Seriously, I love the way you've written Helga, I think it really works for her lovable nature, the way she's there by the bedside while Godric's off trying to do something, and keeping himself busy to cope.
I think this is one of those stories that sneaks up on you. Those ones that you love more and more each time you read them. You should consider writing some more founders stuff in the future. I think you'd be brilliant at it. ^_^
*still excited because I got first - again.*

Aww, thanks ^^ once again, dear, I don't think I'd get anything done without your constant support! So thank you ♥
I'm glad you liked Helga! I tried to show her characteristics, even though this fic was all about Rowena. So hopefully they're showing.
Thank you for your kind words ^^ I'm so glad you like it so much. Maybe I will write more, if I get a good plunny. This one just popped into my mind after I made the banner. Maybe I should try graphics making more often d:

So I stumbled across this and am so glad that I did. Seriously, I'm loving this story and I'm loving the way you're portraying James. I can't wait to see an update on this one. I think you've got a great cast of characters here and am interested in seeing what you're going to do with them.
Keep up the great work, I can't wait for an update.

I loved this. It was positively hilarious, and I loved that her name was Buckbeak. That made me laugh so hard, haha.
Berkley is brilliant. I adore his character and it's only the third chapter. Seriously, I ship them. I probably shouldn't, but I do.
Meep. How can this be the last chapter? I reviewed everything now? This is crazy. You'll just have to update Wonderland so I can leave you more reviews :P
Keep up the magnificent work, Jess. You're a brilliant writer, and I'm increadibly jealous.
- Adele :)Author's Response: Hey again! I can't believe that you've reviewed everything I've ever written on this site; your support is so amazing and I'm incredibly honored!
I'm so glad that you enjoyed this chapter; I had so much fun writing it - especially since I've had the Hippogriff thing planned for a while. It's funny, because I spent a long time thinking about what to name the Hippogriff; I went on google, looking up ideas, suggested names for them, blah blah blah. But then I was like, "Screw it; her name will just be Buckbeak." And I'm really happy with the results because the clicheness of it all (the original reason why I didn't want to use it) actually worked in my favor. I'm glad you appreciated it :)
Berkley. I can't even really put it into words how much I love that boy. He can have such questionable morals at times, but he's so complex and fascinating, I just can't even >_< But don't worry, I have more than a few Berkley/Millie shippers out there so you're not alone!
I'll try to write more of this soon! I have a oneshot I have to finish before Spetember 21st for a challenge I signed up for on the forums but once that's done, I'm updating this! And Wonderland is already in the queue (as you already know :D)
Thank you so much for leaving me such lovely reviews! I don't know what you are jealous of, being the wonderful writer that you are! :)

Urgh, Berkley sounds like a babe. Plus, Hunter Parrish? (Fairly confident that's him) You must be trying to kill me. D: He's delicious. ^_^
I like James. He's different from Wonderland, and while I still think I like Wonderland!James better, I do like him here. Hopefully there's more of him later so I can decide which I like better. ;)
Oh my godness, one more chapter and I've reviewed everything you've posted on here. That's crazy!
To the last chapter!
- Adele ^_^Author's Response: Thank you! You know, it's funny because when I first wrote Berkely, I thought/hoped that people would like him, but I never really anticipated the large fanbase he's acquired! Everyone loves him! I love it! He's such a blast to write; I'm very proud of him (and yes, that is Hunter Parrish! *swoon*)
I'm glad that you like this James; I'm so used to writing the other one that I've had a hard time writing him because I don't want them to be the same character. This James isn't as squishy or adorable as Wonderland!James but I think (hope) in time you'll grow to like him just as much :D

I thought I'd check out this story as well, considering how much I loved your other ones. This is absolutely brilliant as well, even though this is only the first chapter. My sister runs a hipster blog (she isn't actually hipster, but she likes to think she is) and this had me laughing to hard because it sound like something she'd do. (Well, the wearing glasses she doesn't need on weekends, and wearing weird shorts over something else. It's all very strange.)
Oh! And I love the chapter image. ^_^ I love your faceclaim for Millie, beeteedubs. Who is she?
Alrighty, next chapter! Onwards!

But anywho, I'm really glad that you're enjoying it so far! And ahhh I love the chapter image!!! Millie is actually a model from New Zealand named Ebba Zingmark :) I couldn't resist stealing her from another author; I mean, she's so perfect for Millie!

Very, very cute. I only finished If Wishes Were Fishes this afternoon, so clicking back here and seeing this one-shot made me very happy. (Sorry I didn't review IWWF, I was just so anxious to get to the next chapter!)
Anyway, seeing as my current WIP is a Sirius/OC (which leaves me sort of bias) I really liked this. I think they're cute and I'm glad you included this. It was nice to read about them, and the style worked well for the plot. :)
Now that IWWF is done and you've uploaded this, what are you planning on writing next? I love your James/Lily stories (my beautiful OTP). Are you planning on writing another? Or something else this time? Either way, I can't wait to read it.

This chapter did not feel like it was almost 10,000 words. Seriously, it went so quickly, and now i'm left wondering what to do with my life. :/
A sequel could be cool, although it depends on the plot I suppose. If it's just a whole bunch more of James and Summer angst, then I think it could be repetitive, but if it's about them evolving as a couple and furthering the other character relationships, then it could be really cool. But at the end of the day, it's up to you. :) You could always just make the sequel a bunch of one-shots from later in their life. It doesn't have to be another novel, just a short story collection or something?
But anyway. I can't wait for an update, and to see where this goes. Looking forward to more Fred (because he's a babe) and ScoRose. Keep up the amazing work, Ellie. ^_^
- Adele :)Author's Response: ohmygoodness, i was thijnking the exact same thing! i re-read this before to check for errors that needed editing and whatnot, and i just thought 'woah... that seemed short :/'.
well, that's the reason i'm kind of reluctant to do a sequel. i want it to be decent, i don't want it to be a load of repetitive rubbish. though james and summer would probably be quite a lot less angsty in that thing. i'm not sure. i have a feeling i might just do an epilogue. we shall see, my pet. that's exactly what i was thinking! oh goodness, you are like my brain twin. this is getting strange.
thank you so much :D and the next chapter is done and will be in the queue very soon :D thank you so much for the lovely review!
