24th October 2013:
You know, this is the only time that I've probably ever liked Vernon Dursley. I kept thinking that maybe he wasn't such a bad chap with the way that he was acting around Lily and James but then again, he doesn't know they can do magic.

Still though, it was awfully nice of him to buy Lily's family a television set. Sometimes I forget that not everyone had a television set in that time period so I was a bit surprised when Petunia got excited about a television before I came to that realisation.

And her enthusiasm, I thought the Evans had won the lottery or something because Petunia was so happy and talking to Lily!

Ah, the warm fuzzies! Loved the chapter. If only Vernon and James could have remained civil. So proud of her patronus charm. Do either of them know the significance yet? Going to read more.


Author's Response: Warm fuzzies! Good things happening?! I love writing about James and Vernon before the blood gets bad. It really amuses me (call me sad)... but, no, they haven't realised the significance just yet. James didn't see it's shape properly :)

I really liked this chapter. It was really sweet =] Hilarious when Vernon told James to help him with the TV haha. And the fact that Vernon really likes James and that that annoys Petunia so much x)

Author's Response: Ahha, I can do sweet sometimes, right? I love the idea of Vernon really liking James untill he finds out about the whole magic thing, it honestly makes me smile. Glad you enjoyed it! :)

Look, look! Wow, I'm keeping my promise! And reviewing backwards, which is slightly weird.

But new experiences are good! They enrich our lives x)

This is probably my favourite chapter of this story! Why? Cos Lily is so obviously in love with James! I mean, the first half of the chapter was her just /waiting/ for him. So she's obviously in love with him or just realllyy bored.

Plus, she then tells her sister that James is going to ask to marry her! By then I was just warm as toast all over.

Aww. Me getting sentimental :D

I really loved the Lily-Petunia banter over who's boyfriend is better, with the added comical bonus that one of them is magical and one of them is muggle. Haha :')

Really enjoyed it!

-lwg x (I've taken to foing a lowercase lwg. Hmm, interesting...) :P

Author's Response: Hey there LWG (I can't handle the LWG being in lowercase, I don't know... it just doesn't seem like I'm talking to you... I guess I can try to adjust?), it's good to see you :)

I think I've already told you that you're my hero, so I'll tsick to just saying THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Ahhha, Lily.

I think this might be like one of my favourite chapters... the past two chapters of this have just been so like DAMN LILY WORK IT OUT YEAH.

Oh, Lily/Petunia banter :')

Thank you for this lovely review :)

" maybe not, but he will. Yes,yes,yes he HAS to!! The bit with James trying to work the plug was hilarious. Oh, poor Vernon - i wonder how he's going to find out what James is really like!

Author's Response: YESS.
Maybe not, like, soon because I pretty sure that would freak Lily out like BIG TIME. But, yesh, indeed. James and his plugs *rolls eyes*

Thanks for the lovely review!

Author's Response: Ahhh! Giselle! I don't think you understand how much these reviews completely made my day, honestly they really really did. Coming back and seeing my review count jump up by like a million and then seeing all these lovely things that you've said! I'm dedicating March to writing this story, so updates shoule be plentiful - at least for a little while :D

Thank you!

FLUFF. Excuse me while I breathe in all the lovely fluff.

This has to be one of the funniest chapters you've ever written. I laughed so hard at the televsion part. Oh, Vernon, only you would judge a man based on whether or not he can set a television up. (On a totally random side note, do you British people actually say telly? Because my friends looked at me like I was crazy when I said that British people say that :P) Anyways, that part was brilliant. Actually, everything Vernon said was just perfect. He really is just about as Muggle as you can get. I really love the way you've written him as a younger version of himself.

I also really loved the patronus part. It was just the perfect moment. I could see it so clearly in my mind, with James standing there when it was over. I love that Lily conjured a patronus first too. She's such a brillant witch.

Lovely chapter, and March is going to be just as amazing as February!


Author's Response: Okay, I'll give you a couple of minutes to breathe in the lovvellly fluffy goodness, yess? Yes? :)

AHH! Thank you! I was writing this convinced that it was the funniest thing ever, because you know IT'S VERNON DURSLEY. Also, I've thought about this a lot and my conclusion is that british people do say telly. Well, I say telly. It'd probably be more common to say 'TV' but I think I do say telly. I think it's a bit old now though. AHHA.

Anyway, thak you very much for this lovely review! I really appreciate it :D

Review #15, by Snapdragons 

21st February 2012:
Dear Helen,
Thank you for writing lots and lots of glorious Lily/James and Christmastime all in one chapter. Much appreciated.
Love, Hannah.

...just kidding, I guess I'll give you a bit more of a review.
Um. As stated, I very much enjoyed having lots of James in this chapter. I am a sucker for cute boys. "I'm here for as long as you want me." James returned. ♥ WHY ARE YOU SO ADORABLE JAMES.

(oh, Lord, I have a problem with fictional characters. This is not good.)

But they're actually so cute together. eek. And I totally laughed at the part with the television - REAL men know how to set up televisions. :P (Scratch that: real men know how to cook.)

The fact that Vernon thought that James was an all right sort of chap was hilarious. I sort of like having a more human interpretation of Vernon - I mean, he's a jerk to Harry, but Petunia must have seen something in him ,right? I think, in a way, magic was part of the reason he was so nasty - he's afraid of things he doesn't know or understand. But for now, he's still naive and therefore not totally dislikeable.


and that is all. Lovely job. ♥ And I am SUPER EXCITED for TAOS month. ;)

Author's Response: HEY THERE SNAPDRAGONS. I thought you'd like some Lily/James mush and some christmastime because I think you pretty much asked for that in your last review so here you go. *hands you the chapter*

Now you've quoted that quote, I want to go back and edit the 'James returned' - it just seems awks to me. Anyway, ahha.

VERNON. OH MY DAYS I was so amused by the prospect of him being like JAMES IS AN AWFULLY GOOD FELLOW, PETUNIA and then pretending like he'd always hated him forever and ever because of magic. AHha.

I'm beginning to get excited for TAOS month too now :D

Review #17, by classicblack 

20th February 2012:
Love, love, loved this chapter! It was really actually the perfect combination of cute and frustrating. Honestly, can Lily and James just make it official already and get together?
Goodness me!
But I really like how you write James and Lily and their interactions.
I also laughed a bit at the fact that Vernon liked James, hahaha. Particularly funny because he hates James in the future.
More James/Lily relationship progression in the future? Possibly Lily actually telling him what she said last in this chapter? Please no more fights; I don't think my poor heart can take it!
Happy writing (update soon?),

Author's Response: Hey there Classicblack! Ah, I love your reviews (the 'Happy writing' bit at the end always makes me want to go write happy things) so... hello there!

Maybe they'll make it official soon? Or maybe not. We shall see. OHH. And it should be pretty soon because March is TAOS month! So there should be lots of updates.

Also, I just think that Vernon liking James is one of the best ideas I've ever had. Ahhahadojoaidsj.

I'll try to be good to your poor heart :(

Review #18, by Hope's Mom 

20th February 2012:
What an interesting day Lily and James spent together! You can really tell that they haven't really decided where they are in their relationship. Lily is so awkward around James. James unfamiliarity with muggle life is really funny here - he can't even plug in the TV properly! It is also rather funny how much Vernon likes him at this point. Thank you for the update!

Author's Response: Oh, Lily is so very very awkward and it's so cute, but maybe... next chapter they'll sort it out? Or not, I guess we'll see at the beginning of March won't we? (When the next chapters going in the queue).

Ahha, Vernon/James friendship :P

I'm in love with the idea of it.

20th February 2012:
How funny - Vernon thinks James is fabulous... wonder when that changes.

I liked that Lily's doe is the first patronus - even though James has already mastered his animagus form. I would have thought that would make it easier for him, but we all know that Lily is an amazing witch.

Nice chapter. Nothing much to say really. :)

Author's Response: I couldn't resist defying conventions and letting an ignorant-Vernon blither along trying to impress Petunia's family before veering so confidently in the other direction. I can't wait to the write about the colour of his face when all that changes AHHHA.

Lily is pretty fab :D

xD I love Lily so much! Unfortunately, I think sometimes She just needs a good shake and an eye-opener. But Lily is Lily, and we all love her just the way she is :) I know it's a long shot, but James proposing next chapter? ...Na, I didn't think so ;) Really loving everything you've written - although I did spot some minor grammar [to/too etc], it barely changed a thing :) Too amazingly written for it to be put down by tiny little nitpickers like moi :) Can't wait for boxing day!! Gonna be an awesome chapter, I can already tell ;) they always are!!

Lots of love,

Childy/H-hat/Emily x x

Author's Response: Hey there Draminone Child/Childy/H-Hat/Emily (you've given me a lot of names there).

Oh, I reguarlly want to push Lily over untill she gets her head on straight but there's nothing quite like writing about frustrating characters. AHH, I was actually just thinking about James's proposal when I read that review, but I've got to say if he chucked it out there in the next chapter I'm entirely sure Lily would move to a different country.

The grammar stuff doesn't surprise me as it was a pretty lazy editing job. I'll go back and fix it at some point :)

Thank you very much! It should be a good un'

I love this so much! Lily and James are written so well! Their relationship reminds me of the 'it's complicated' facebook status. :)

Author's Response: AHA - "It's complicated."

I love that so much.

Well, they should be sorting out their facebook status in the next chapter.

Review #24, by Jaded94 

20th February 2012:
I love how you've made Vernon quite a nice character in this story because I assume it's kind of perfect for him to act like that before he knew about magic.
Lily and James are adorable when they're all couple like. I really like the chapters where James visits Lily in the holidays because they're hilarious (ie the plug part made me laugh) Update soon?

Author's Response: I really loved the idea of Vernon being almost lovely to James and Lily before finding out at magic and then standing by the fact that he'd known since the beginning that they were complete scumbags, so it crept its way in there. Next month is TAOS month! So there should be lots of updates then :)
