I had forgotten I had started reading this back when I first added it to my favorites/reading list in 2013 until I got to the end of the last chapter to see that I had already left a review. But it'd been years and I don't think I had read past that chapter that I had forgotten basically everything I had read. But I planning on finishing my reading of this simply because it's completed now and I'm getting back into reading fanfic again after being absent since graduating uni.

I really do enjoy all of the character development and dialogue in this story. And the story is so readable and I can't help but keep reading to find out what happens next. Great writing!

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! :)

Another chapter well done! I think that there was something just very simple and sweet about this chapter. It seems that of his siblings, James is actually closer to Lily rather than Albus which makes me wonder if there is a reason for that. It just seems that most of his family is not shown much throughout this story and it makes me wonder if there is something behind it that maybe makes it so he's not as close to his family or if its all just a fact that they are all busy. The ending surprised me a bit, I thought that Maddie was dating Kit so then when it was revealed that he already had a date, I was slightly confused. Though I think it will be interesting to see James go to a Prom. I also love that you used the wardrobe idea. Its a really interesting idea that helps Lily's family be able to come and visit her when they want but without anyone else knowing that they just appeared out of no where. One thing I do wonder though is that a loud crack type noise does happen so would they not still hear that? Or is there a silencing charm on the wardrobe so that no one will hear it? Anyways, I very much enjoyed this chapter, now onto the next! Great Job!


Author's Response: You're right, James is closer to Lily than to Al at the moment. Again, that's something which will be explained over time. Maddie and Kit are platonic; I was aware that with James, Freddie and Brigid I'd pretty much written an HRH Mark II, so I didn't want another three-person friendship with that dynamic. Lily, Maddie and Kit are all good friends but no more. The wardrobe still amuses me! I think when Harry enchanted it to make the inside bigger, he would have put a Silencing charm on it as well, so people couldn't hear anyone Apparating. :) Thanks for reviewing!

Uh-oh. Listen to Lily, James. That sounds like ominous foreshadowing to me...

Author's Response: I foreshadow a lot. I get some kind of sick, depraved satisfaction from it. But then, what author doesn't? Thanks for reviewing :)

It's strange, now we've had the Squib reveal it's like there was this sort of veil over all of the Lily scenes which we didn't even know was there but has now been removed! Or like Lily scenes were playing in art-house black and white and are now in full technicolour hi-def or something! It's great, this is meant as a good thing, that the air of mystery and something being unquantifiably OFF was there before (as it should have been!), I just couldn't put my finger on it, and now the truth's out this full life and stuff comes blaring out. It makes Lily (and Maddie) all the more entertaining and adorable. Really, really liked this chapter. It's like the whole thing was the last piece of a puzzle slotting into place, or YET MORE similes! Words fail me. Chapter Are Good.

Author's Response: And what wonderful similes they are! I'm definitely glad that I managed to pull off the whole Lily secret playing out in such a manner - that was, obviously, the plan, so it's good to know that it worked :) Glad you liked the chapter ... honestly, I could just turn this entire fic into one about Lily at school and be quite content with it. Unfortunately I don't think neglecting James' story would go down too well. But yeah, any scene with Lily in it from now on will, if I'm not careful, totally be taken over by Maddie and Kit and other Muggle boarding school adventures. Which may not be such a bad thing, haha. THANKS FOR REVIEWING and all that jazz, muchos appreciated :)

you know, i dont know if i ever told you.
i practically live on hpff
i dont live on ff . net as much because i dont like it as much as hpff but out of all of the NG fanfics that i've read, and believe me, i've read a LOT. and even out of all of the hogwarts era, post hogwarts era, and marauders era fanfics, i have come to realize that i REALLY REALLY like this fanfic.

i dunno. like some of the stuff,
like james and harry having issues and lily being a squib i wouldn't think, at least in my mind, would happen and when i write a fanfic, i wouldn't incoroporate that. just because it seems unlikely to me that james and harry can have such a strained relationship and that lily can be a squib.
but even with those things that make me sorta take a double take, i really like this entire story.

like everything about this story is just so fun to read. it's like i REALLY cant wait for an update from you and when i do get an update, it's like EXCITING :D

but anyways. yeah. thought u should know. i loved this chapter btw loll

and i still want to know why james and harry arent on speaking terms :P

Author's Response: I love next gen fics as much as the next person, but I wanted to write one with a slight twist to it, more to challenge myself than anything really, because obviously it has to be realistic. So I'm glad that you enjoy it :) The whole Harry/James drama will be explained later in the story, but there are other things that have to happen first :) Thanks for reviewing!
