You're definitely one of my favorite authors now.Author's Response: *blushes* Why thank you! You have me grinning like a lunatic! Report Review
Wow. This is one of the few fanfictions that I have ever read that's made me cry. I don't review unless I see good potential or the writing is amazing, and I have to say that this is so very heartbreaking and touching. I love the idea of courage, especially when you put it together with this couple, whom I absolutely love. Amazing job.Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for reviewing, especially if you don't normally. I am so very pleased you liked this, and that the idea and the format worked well for you. Lily and James fascinate me in so many ways, especially during this time in their lives, and I'm so happy that it seems I did well capturing the turbulent emotions of that time. Again, thank you so, so much! Report Review
aw that was beautiful! you have such a touching and delicate manner of writing- i read this as zoolander was on tv in the background, and you STILL managed to get my full, weepy attention. i love the perspective jumps that you make which would otherwise be confusing but for the artful way you make them segue. its like a woven tapestry. stunning!
my one and only criticism (actually its not even criticism really) is that you should try venturing beyond the short story genre and tackling a novella or novel. i can see how your style might be difficult to adapt to longer, sustained plots, but ur so bloody good, u could do it! i wish i could write as well as you. i swear im not jealous...Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much! Your review made my night! (And even through Zoolander! Wow! Haha that's such a hilarious movie.) Your words mean a lot.
The only novel-length things I've written have been original pieces, and I have a few ideas for fics, but they're just not fully formulated. I do really want to branch out and try my hand at one.
Thanks again for your compliments. You've got me blushing! :) Report Review
I rarely leave reviews. (I know I am a bad person; sorry.) This was just so amazing that I had to leave one. You are one of the best authors I have had the honor of reading. I hope the rest of works will be as good as this one.Author's Response: Oh it's okay, I find I don't leave reviews half as much as I should. :) I'm so, so pleased you liked this! Your review really made me grin like crazy. Thanks again! Report Review
You are one of the only writers on this website that can actually make me cry!!!Author's Response: Why thank you!...I think :D Report Review
hey! so i like this little one shot. its got the right mix of sadness and idk, inspiration? thats not the word i want, it makes it sound religious or something. but i think you know what im trying to say.
so the quote at the end means revenge is a dish best served cold, right? because i really dont trust my french at all... and the very last line, is that yours or from somewhere? because i really like it.
thank you for writing this! ;)Author's Response: Thanks so much, and yes I think I know exactly what you mean there. Which is great because it's exactly what I was going for! :)
Yup, that's what that line means, and the last line has been attributed to Plato, but various sources claim different things.
Thanks for reviewing! :) Report Review
Wow. It's amazing. I've read this story so many times and it makes me cry everytime. You've made it seem like it's actually happening. I bow down to you. : )Author's Response: Oh thank you so much! Your review means a lot. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and that I managed to make it seem as though it's happening- I tried so hard to accomplish that. *hands tissues* Thanks again! :) Report Review
Very good writing. Too dark for my taste, but that's a personal preference.Author's Response: Thanks very much! Yes, I quite like things angsty and dark, but I know I'm in the minority there ;) Thanks for reading anyway! Report Review
You never fail to make me misty eyed! This is so beautiful, truly. You have a nack for writing the Marauders and Lily. I also liked the humor you threw in via Sirius. Lovely job!Author's Response: Oh no, I didn't mean to make you misty eyed! Although, that's not entirely true, it was the tone I was going for ;). Thank you so much for the compliment, I absolutely adore the Marauders and Lily, but I'm never quite sure I do them justice. And oh Sirius, always with the humor, and it's rarely appropriate. And that's why I love him :). Anyway, thank you so much! Report Review
That was so freaking sad. I cried. : ( But it was really good. :)Author's Response: I'm so sorry it made you cry, although I must admit it was the reaction I was going for. But in any case, I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for reviewing :) Report Review
That's all I can say.
This story doesn't even feel like a story. It sounds like an actual happening; somthing that actually took place.
Awesome job coming up with this.
I love it.Author's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind review! I'm so happy you thought it was so vivid, I really tried to make it feel like that. Again, thank you, this review made my day!! Report Review

OMG! that was such a powerful story. Tears were streaming down my face. Amazing! What more can I say? Your writing is so beautiful, and real. It makes me feel like I was right there witnessing it for myself. You have a great talent. Keep up the Great Work.
Two thumbs way upAuthor's Response: Thank you so much, Purple Rain, for this very, very nice review. I'm so happy you enjoyed the story, even if it did make you cry (sorry!) I really appreciate it, and I was so self-conscious about this story that your review totally made my day. Thanks again :) Report Review
holy moly, that was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. ""I love you James!" she yells before turning to the steps."I love you too!" he calls, with so much instensity her heart fills just like it did the first time he said those words. " that was beautiful.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so happy you enjoyed it. I was so worried about posting this, so your review means a lot. Thanks again :) Report Review
It was a very good story. I like how you explained what happened in your caracters' life without respecting the time line. (if you understand what I mean !!). You talked in a very different way about James and Lily death and it was good to read.
I just want to point out that you made a mistake in the final the quote. The author's name is spelt Choderlos de Laclos.
Apart from that your story was very good. Author's Response: Thanks so much, lilau! I'm not sure I understand what you mean about the timeline, is that a good thing? And thanks about the spelling, I get my quotes from all over so it's no wonder the spelling got messed up, I'll be sure to fix that. Thanks for the review!! Report Review
That was brilliant! Every story that I have read about Lily and James's death start at at night, but you did it so well to start well before that.
You wrote so well, and showed the real pains of the war, who was dying and the pain of knowing that they could be next.
I particaully like the start when "Courage is..." kept on repeating. That was a great idea and really brought the reader in to keep on reading.
Your plot was brilliant, you spread it out so well which you should be proud of. The characters were great too, Lily acted like a real mother figure that she shows in the books and everything was great from James and Sirius being inseprable and the stress on Lupin.
And did you say that this isn't a story that you normally don't write, well hear this from me, start to write more! It was well written, a tiny bit long but the story suited it fine, your spelling is good and you bring in the reader and the title suits it well.

Ah, this story is fantastic! It was a really realistic look into how the war with Voldemort was, so sad but absolutely wonderful. I loved it a lot; it really was a beautiful story.
