I really don't want Carlotta's mind obliviated. Their relationship was developing into something that could become serious and I just knew James wouldn't shy away. That he'd come to his senses. I hope he goes to talk to Carlotta and realizes his feelings run deeper and that Carlotta hadn't said a word about magic to anyone. Also that she's accepting of him. I don't think my heart can handle it any other way; its already breaking.

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! :)

The SoS confuses me. There's got to be some bylaws for Muggles who have magical kids and those who marry wizards. Obliviation can't be the only option. Still, amazing read, cant quite put this down :-)

Author's Response: I'm pretty sure there is some dispensation for magical people who marry Muggles, and obviously the parents of Muggleborns learn about magic as well. Having said that, it does seem that even after marriage, magical people tend to be very hesitant to tell their Muggle spouse about magic. This instance is entirely different to those scenarios though, because James and Carlotta aren't even in a relationship, let alone married. The whole ethos of the Statute is that the fewer Muggles who need to know about magic, the better, and Carlotta definitely doesn't need to know about magic right now. Hope that makes sense! Thanks for reviewing :)

Ah the ending of this chapter left me with a smile which was nice since the beginning of the chapter was rather sad. It was nice to see more background on Lily and knowing that she had gone through the same problem as James. Having that also added more to her character as a whole and makes you wonder if part of the reason she says what she wants to without holding anything back could have come from having to deal with such a hard problem so young in life. I do hope that down the line we will learn more of this situation that she had and how things had come about for her. It may be an interesting story, if not in this one then one of its own. Anyways, I really liked how she handled the whole situation. She was relatively calm about the whole thing and very helpful even though she told James exactly what he didn't want to hear I think it was easier for him to hear and understand from her not only because she wasn't getting angry with him but also because she had the experience with it and knew exactly how hard the decision was to make. I'm really loving everything about this story and can't wait to continue reading! Great Job!


Author's Response: And this review really DID make me squee. You'll know why it made me so happy of course, given you've read on :) So you'll know that your wish came true in terms of knowing more about Lily's situation! She was the right person for James to talk to here, because she knows not to get angry with him. He doesn't respond well to that kind of treatment. And she can sympathise with him, of course. :) Thanks for reviewing!

...sport. Lily and Maddie are talking about a sport. But... arglebargle, she wasn't playing in the Quidditch match, and Hugo's captain - unless she wasn't COMPLETELY lying about going to a different school? Did I miss this reference? Is she just in a different House? Playing a DIFFERENT sport?

WHEELS WITHIN WHEELS and I'm not convinced I'm not being slow as I just had a nap in between chapters.

That said, it's nice to see Lily with James (explaining interesting things and also handling him a little bit more like I imagine he'll respond well to), and I like that she has good friends. It seems so automatic in Next Gen fics for the kids to ONLY hang out with family members, EVER, and while some of that is natural if you don't want a cast of fifty thousand, it's also cool to see it different.

Author's Response: I LOVE THAT YOU PICKED ALL THIS UP. You are not being slow at all. As you have by now discovered.

Lily probably deals with James the best, at least at the moment. Better than Brie, who is more of a motherly, managing figure at times, when she would be better off coming at it as purely a friend. Because James is less likely to listen to people who are properly telling him off. And he spends a lot of time with Lily because I enjoy writing her. More specifically, I enjoy writing Maddie, who is a total hoot at times.

This is so great! I would have reviewed for every chapter if I didn't want to read the next chapter so badly :)

It'll be interesting to see how James' relationship with Harry develops. I assume it's the attention thing that's made it rough between them. I can't wait to see what happens with Carlotta (I like that name by the way). Hopefully there'll be more of her in the next chapter!

Update soon :D

Author's Response: Aaaah, thanks! Yeah, James has issues with Harry's fame, it comes more to the forefront later in the story but it's an issue right from the off. I love the name Carlotta too, I've wanted to use it in a story for ages! And she'll be back next chapter, no worries. Thanks for reviewing!

I'm interested to see how you will keep Carlotta in the story, as at this point it does seem to make the most sense to obliviate her. Unless maybe she shows up at James's place and is okay with everything, so he keeps dating her? Or perhaps she forgets everything and James can't stay away and they date again? You have a very unique plot and I hope you update again soon.

Author's Response: All will become clear next chapter, love your thoughts on it though! Next update should be fairly soon, thank you so much for reviewing!
