I LOVED IT. I honestly have nothing more to say than that but bravo! However the part that says James please don't break my heart. It's yours now. The sequence seems a bit off, but that's a really trivial matter so excellent.

Hi, this is andromeda from the forums :)

Is this really your first story? Because it is really good and very nicely-written.

You asked about cliches. Well, I spotted two of them. One is Lily slapping James for no real reason. I mean, he only asked her out, it's not like he was making dirty hints. And it's been used SO much in many other fics. Also, Heads sharing a special Common Room of their own - I think it's another part of fanon that's been slightly overused and that is actually a bit unrealistic.

I think the characterization was pretty good, and the closing scene was touching. The only thing, I don't think that Lily would suddenly be that open with James about her feelings. James's words, on the other hand, were fabulous and I can totally see Lily giving in to her feelings after hearing that. The song that you used fitted in very well, and that's actually a rare thing when it comes to a song-fic :)

One grammatical mistake that kept cropping up:
"I promise." He responded and kissed her again.
should look like this
"I promise," he responded and kissed her again.

Review #17, by Dracana I Promise

11th September 2007:
I actually really liked this. It was nice and short, yet sweet and clear and full of emotion. I loved your outlook on why Lily has been denying James for so long - that was really great, because he was viewing her as more of a challenge than with love, or that's how Lily perceived it.

I think the song fits in well as well. Its interlaced with the story in a perfect way, and I didn't skip over the lyric either - which is what I tend to do when the lyrics are from a song I don't know.

Characterisation was great, and the way you immediately plunged into the fic with a classic James/Lily argument was fantastic. It sucked me in immediately.

Over all, I'd say this was great. I think it would need a little more depth to reach perfection, but I really enjoyed it. It was light and easy-going to read.

Author's Response: thanks for the review!

Awww... was all I could think of after the end of that! This story was so cute. You did a great job with your descriptions and everything just seemed to fit together so beautifully! This was just a great feel good story.

My favorite line was: The distance between them faded away and her lips pressed against his with more passion than Romeo and Juliet ever could have felt.

Wow! Great job. That's really all I can say!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review!

Review #23, by Mini Marauder I Promise

29th August 2007:
This story is very well done, much better than my first fics ever were! It's a tad bit cliche, but as you are new to this site (the writing aspects, at least) you'll get a hang of what is frequently used and what is not. In one-shots like this, a lot of authors have James say he loves her and Lily suddenly feels the same way. You portray that in this story, though with a bti of a twist that makes it unique, whne you say "At that moment, he knew he loved her" or something along the lines. My favorite quote is: "The distance between them faded away and her lips pressed against his with more passion than Romeo and Juliet ever could have felt." It was very original and I have never read/seen anything like it. You also need to work on your grammar slightly, mostly just too many commas, or commas not necessarily needed. I enjoyed the song to! I'll definately have to look into that. All in all, I would give you a 7/10. It's a very well written first story.

Thanks for the read!

Review #24, by Lunnah I Promise

29th August 2007:
Great job choosing that song! It was just perfect for your plot, and I think, not what most people would pick for a James/Lily :) This was pretty short, but you got your point across, and there was no unnecessary information, so that was fine. The voice in your narrative is quick and witty! I laughed quite a bit in the beginning, as your dialogue and thoughts were intelligent.

My favorite part was when Lily was explaining to James why she would not go out with him. The part after he first apologized, and she said that he didn't deserve a chance. I thought your choice of words through that whole paragraph was very powerful. The whole story was powerful actually, kind of exhilarating. And just a comment: you have an amazing vocabulary! This is the first fic I've read where I actually had to look up a word. hahaha

As for little corrections here and there, I did catch some grammar/sentence structure/repetition mistakes:

The first thing was these three sentences very close to eachother:
-"best friends known as the Marauders"
-"their group they named the Marauders"
-"he and his fellow Marauders"
I think you should try to vary that a bit more by switching your words or just spreading out your ideas.

"One chance he thought to himself" -I would put a comma after chance. It is confusing without it.

"I promise good enough for you
Then I never keep it
I pace the floor at night when all the pretty world is sleeping
And all the world is sleeping
Lily sat in the Heads Common Room"- You did not skip a line there before returning to the story. I assumed it was a typo, since the rest of the story was done that way. :)

"When she saw him entering she immediately" -I suggest a comma after entering, so that the reader pauses and doesnt get confused.

"But now you’ve old me that I’ve hurt you." old should be told.

This was a very sweet and loving song-fic. Thanks for requesting a review!

Author's Response: thanks so much!
your suggestions were great...just what i needed since it is my first fic. = ]
