Oh my goodness, I absolutely loved this story. It almost brought me to tears. The way you wrote the conversations between the Marauders was so well done. I definitely felt a calmness/peace about them. The ending was a very nice touch, working it right in to the part where they come out of the stone. All in all, a beautiful story. (Favorited.)
Sabrina :)Author's Response: Haha, sorry for nearly bringing you to tears! Yeah, I always imagine them coming to terms with the whole deal about dying in the moment they die, which bring that peace and calm to them - that was very important to me. Thanks for the review! :) Report Review
This is spectacular.
I like the idea of them all being together in death, it's coldly comforting.
:)Author's Response: It gives a little bit of satisfaction, yes. Thank you very much for reviewing! Report Review
Ok, that was supposed to be MarauderS. Sorrry. And being curious... Who's Barbra? And who was Tonks waiting for?
(: Smiles! :)Author's Response: Barbra is just a person. No one important to the story, just a friend Lily would be waiting for. Tonks... I don't know, a friend I guess :P Report Review
Yay! My three favorite Marauder reunited at last! I like this.
' Prongs smiled. “We did have one and a half year to raise him properly,” he joked. '
Lol, but they were super good parents, see.
' “Snape killed him.”
“I knew it,” grumbled Padfoot. “I knew that slimy little-”
“Padfoot,” Prongs said. “There’s no anger in the Elevator.” '
It's amusing to me to have James say that to Sirius.
' “If we’re going to heaven it’s gonna be a long way.”
“Do you think we belong in hell?” Padfoot asked.
Prongs shook his head. “No. We’re good on the inside.”
Moony nodded. “We’ve never been able to fool anyone.”
“I nearly did,” Padfoot said with a slight air of humour. '
That's funny. They're actually awesome on the inside! And outside, as far as I'm concerned.
' “Hey, no sarcasm in the Elevator,” Prongs said. “The Elevator is a happy place.”
Moony nodded, eyes on Padfoot who laughed soundlessly. He smiled too. Prongs shook his head.
“You guys are incredible. Will you even stop fighting over small things?”
“Probably never,” Moony said.
“I agree,” Padfoot muttered. “What should we spend the rest of eternity doing? Knitting?”
Prongs sighed. “I’m not saying I want you to stop, but I was asking if you ever will,” he smiled. “I don’t want you to change.”
“We won’t.” Moony looked into the ceiling. '
It amuses me the way James tells them that there is no anger/sarcasm in the elevator, the elevator is a happy place. :)
' “Hey,” Padfoot suddenly muttered. “I’ve gotten my tooth back.”
Prongs looked at him. “The one you lost in fourth year?”
“The very same,” Padfoot said with a smile. “Wow, it’s incredible. Why didn’t I notice before?”
“You’ve probably been busy being dead,” Moony said.
“Yeah, probably.” '
Haha! Isn't that sweet! He got his tooth back! Wonder how he lost it... 'Busy being dead'... Made my smile.
' “I can’t wait to see Lily.”
“I can’t wait to see where we’re going.”
“I can’t wait till Dora gets here.” '
So that's their values! :) Or should that be 'those are'?
' “Hurry up,” she said and grabbed Prongs’ hand. “Harry’s calling us.”
Prongs followed, but Lily stopped as she saw Padfoot and Moony weren’t following. She placed one of her hands on her hip, looking at them.
“What are you waiting for?” she asked. “Harry’s calling you too!” '
Like that. It works in the Harry-Resurrection Stone bit nicely, and that I like. Also, we have a bit of Lily fieryness (is that a word even?) I guess you could call it, and that I like as well.
I'm sitting here holding my nephew. His name is Rishon and he's like ten days old and he's absolutely adorable :) That has nothing to do with reviewing the story, but I wanted to say it.
So basically, great story. There were some other quotes I liked but... Oh, and the suits were a nice touch. Lily's cream coloured dress... Bet she was gorgeous :)
Brilliant, as usual :)Author's Response: The Elevator is the last thing before the final stop; it's light, it's a good place, therefore; no negative feelings in there.
Strangely, your quotes are some of my favourite too. Especially the last one. I don't know why, but somehow it made sense to me to have them reunite just as Harry needed them the most.
Haha, everybody loves little children :D me too!

great story I loved it.Author's Response: Thank you! Report Review
I actually loved this.
I chanced upon it whilst browsing for something to read inbetween essay writing...and this popped up!
I am so glad it did. I absolutely loved it.
I was one of those stories that was happy sad...if that makes any sense. They've all suffered so much, but they're back together again, and I find that idea very beautiful.
I really enjoyed it =] and I want to thank you for making my day a little brighter with the reading of this.
I was reading it whilst listening to 'Sad Romance' by JessicaYeh on Youtube. It really encapsulated the feeling of this fic...and might have made me shed a tear or two...*shifty eyes*
Anyway- great writing =]
~xAuthor's Response: Yes, it is very light reading, I'm glad you found it so!
I completely get you, and it was the idea of it too. They're dead after a hard life, but after all they're together.
Ohh! I might go listen to that song. Thanks for the review! Report Review
luved it! such a creative idea. luved "Some women just talk and talk without breathing. It’s inconceivable really." lollAuthor's Response: Well, that phrase is too true :P Thanks for the review! Report Review
I love this! oh my gosh I couldn't believe how much I loved reading this! I love the ending most of all, with Lily and the last few lines. You got the Marauders so perfectly; they're just how I imagined them together again. awesome!Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it, especially the ending seeing I had two which I couldn't decide between. Well, I always imagined them to be very okay with them dying, and expecting to see each other again. That's why they didn't hug and yell etc.
Thansk for the review! Report Review
That is actually really sad. I kinda wish they didn't have to die. Knowing that none of them got to raise their children or live happy longs lives of marriage, is awful. The idea of James climbing onto an elevator without Lily, or Remus with Nimphdora is crazy though. They were all such good people and for what? To die young? To leave their loved ones unprepared? And then Wormtail lives the longest, because he betrayed them all and himself. There is truly no justice in the world.Author's Response: It's actually some of that I felt when writing this. Both James and Remus were so unlucky. But I do believe that in magical world, there is something after the life. Well, friends before loved ones, that's the way I see it. That's why Lily had already gone, and Tonks had to wait. It is sad though. I smiled when Wormtail died - he deserved to die.

Aww, this was so cute and sad. But very original at the same time (I didn't see the Grey's episode, so...). It was interesting to think of James waiting in an elevator for years, just waiting. Good job. =)Author's Response: Thanks! Well, it's not a special episode of Grey's Anatomy, just the thought of the elevator I think could do it. Well, I've always learned friends before loved ones, which is why Lily wasn't there. Thanks for the review! Report Review
Harry and GinnyAuthor's Response: Thanks a lot! :D Report Review
Hello there, my dear! Wonderful story!
This was really unique and surprising. I was really intrigued on your take of this. This was brilliant and actually sad.
The end of the Marauders.
It was wonderful way to end the story with Harry and all that.
I loved it! Loved it, loved it!
10/10Author's Response: Thanks a lot for that great review! When using such amazing words, you always make me smile. I'm glad you like the end, seeing I was in doubt about two ways, and I did something I usually never do, letting my beta decide.
Thanks for the review! Report Review
Ok I have to be honest, this wasn't my favorite story of yours.
It was a little confusing and a bit weird. I liked parts of it like when the three guys were talking in the elevator they made like funny remarks which were good but overall I would have to say it isn't your best. It just doesn't seem like anything really happens in it.
But I still love your James and Lily stories so I would love it if you kept writing them!!Author's Response: Thanks for that very well thought review.
I'm sad you dont't find it one of my best, seeing it's one of those I love the most. I guess it's one of those stories you either love or hate (in lack of better, less expressive words :P).
The whole point of this wasn't really to make anything happen, but reunite the Marauders, because their parting makes me so sad. But I see your point.
Thanks again for the review! Report Review
