Review #1, by dianap00 A Dying Sanity

30th January 2009:
I love it too much already. It is a sincere and complete relief that you have a James/Lily dynamic is not only believable, but sort of exactly what I have always agreed with - I never liked the idea of desperate!James and hateful!Lily. She is incredibly reasonable and the way she describes James seems pretty fair.

"James?" I gaped. "As in James Potter? Why in Merlin's name would I want to date James Potter? Why would he want to date me? What exactly do you think friendship means?"
Her reaction to the silly sixth years is too funny. I really love this line in particular. I think it may have hooked me good.

I'm willing to wait, but please, do continue...

Author's Response: Aw, thank you. :) I find it really difficult to characterize James and Lily, and it means a lot that you like how I've done it. I just don't think that a smart girl like Lily would dislike James for no reason. I'm absolutely thrilled that you like where this story is going. I don't know when I'll update, but I'll definitely try to do so soon. ^_^

Review #3, by Groundswell A Dying Sanity

22nd December 2008:
What a great first chapter! I really like it. You have found a very good line between dialogue and description which I find close to perfect! I loved the - I don't know, what was it? A prologue? Well, I loved it! It was so sweet, and definitely made me want more!
I like the whole scene in the library, even though I do not see someone interupting when others are talking. Gossip people would keep quiet till they'd heard something very juicy.
A really fantastic first chapter, I really loved it!
Oh, and I just realised as I made this a favourite of mine, that it's the third of your stories I've done so with. Haha.

Author's Response: Thanks, Groundswell! :D Close to perfect? That makes me extremely happy. I'm always a little unsure about the line between dialogue and description, and therefore it's great that you think it was good. ^_^ Yeah, you're probably right about the interrupting part. The girl who did interrupt wasn't the gossip queen, though, she was just a little stupid. :P Thank you for this wonderful review. In fact, thank you for all of your wonderful reviews! :) It means the world to me that you read and review my stories.

Review #4, by MidwinterMasque A Dying Sanity

16th December 2008:
Hey hey,
this sounds great, I'm really looking forward to reading more chapters!
Lily sounds very awesome, and believable. I like the elements of hypocrisy and vanity that you introduced; it really rounded out the blurb thingo.
SO! Any time you want to update, you know... Any time.

Author's Response: Thanks! :D I'm glad Lily sounds believable, as that's what I think is most important when writing a character. Hypocricy and vanity are indeed vital elements to the story, and it's great that you like it. You just made me really happy! I don't know when I'll be able to udpate, as I'm trying to finish chapter seven of Echoes of light, but it'll hopefully be soon. Again, thank you for the great review! :)

Author's Response: Aw, thanks! :) Don't worry, I'm still writing Echoes of Light, which I'm thrilled that you like so much, by the way. Chapter seven is a little harder to write than I originally thought, but I'll try to have it up by the end of 2008. :)

9th December 2008:
this is a great first chapter! i love the cliffhanger ending - cant wait to see where that takes the story! i particularly liked the conversations between Lilyand Nellie - very true to life and amusing :]]

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm so thrilled that you like it. A cliffhanger's an author's best friend. ^_^ I'm glad you like Lily and Nellie's conversation, as I had a lot of fun writing it. Oh, and congrats on the first review. :)
