That was funny! XD The end where Sirius has his moment of genius was unexPected but my favorite part !Author's Response: Haha, thank you! Report Review
Hihi, that's really a fun story.
I loved the banter between Sirius and James. It really well written and all.
You wrote them really like the teenage boys they are, which it really good.
Poor James though, now he has to figure out what to do with his new found love. I't like to read that...
It's great how you made Lily a little less harsh to James, sometime I think people only like to write about them fighting or kissing. The encounter you wrote was more natural. That was fun to read. I'm writing a James/Lily story right now and this helped a bit in my research for their characters.
Thanks for the great read!
MayaAuthor's Response: Hi! Thank you so much, I'm glad you liked it :)
It really bothers me when people write Lily/James as Lily absolutely hating James until one day she just decides to like him. It doesn't make any sense. I'm glad you thought this seemed natural. Thanks for reviewing!

Everything about this is perfect! ♥
James and Lily's relationship was balanced so well. The banter (or is that flirtation?) between the two of them at the very beginning was really awesome! I seriously went back to that scene maybe three or four times before reading on. I just loved it.
Also, I thought you wrote the Marauder's friendship really well, James and Sirius's in particular. Gah, I just love everything about this. You're an amazing writer, you seriously are.

I really think you're a brilliant writer!
James and Lily are one of my favourite pairings to read about and even though I don't normally like short stories, I thought this was great. The flirting at the beginning is so cute and I think you write James and Sirius perfectly; it's pretty much exactly how I imagine their relationship to be.
Basically, I love this story!Author's Response: Yay! Thank you :) I seem to have some sort of addiction to writing James and Lily one-shots. They're my favorite HP pairing and I just love them! This time, though, I thought I'd switch it up a bit and try my hand at writing Sirius. I'm glad you liked it so much! Thanks for reviewing! Report Review
I feel like a review for this is long overdue.
I've decided to stop questioning it. Clearly, greter forces are at work here. These forces that stipulate that the sun will rise in the east. January will be a cold month in the Northern Hemisphere. Laura will write the best Jily fics. Ever.
The transition between James conversation with Lily and then Sirius was smooth and realistic. And I love the Jily bantering/flirting. Why, oh why, do they have to be so fluffy. Your writing about their relationship is an elixir to my inner fangirl.
For some reason, I pictured Sirius as Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. Just something to do with my wonky imagination. As for his and James friendship, very well and realistically depicted. You did proper justicce to my BrOTP. And no James, the 'Sirius' jokes never get old. Deal with it.
Eagerly waiting for a Choices update.
PS. Since 2am. is generally time for people to be catching zzzs, except for me, fuzzy-headed owl that I am, I mistakenly said in my response that Eva McLaggen is a Muggleborn, when her father is a cannon character. Clearly, late nights do not work as well for me as some other people *coughjustonemoreficcough*. In any case, her mother's a Muggle. That, i'm sure of.
PPS. Where are my manners? Honestly, I lose all my decency and eloquence come the witching hour. For your thanks for the drawing I made you: oh honestly, don't mention it. It was the least I could do to showcase my immense love for James&Faith. :)Author's Response: Hi love!
Well, gosh, thank you ever so much! What can I say, I have a total and complete obsession with Jily. Therefore, I will continue to write them forever and ever and ever.
I really had a lot of fun writing James and Sirius together. Seriously, everything to do with the Marauders just breaks my heart, but I have to write it. I'm glad you thought I wrote them well :3
I think the reason I (as you say) write Jily well is because I just READ so much of it. Usually when I'm supposed to be writing my own stories, I'm actually reading hundreds of thousands of Jily fics.
Speaking of my own writing, the next chapter of Choices is in queue! It'll be up in a few days.
P.S. Ah, okay. Noted :)
P.P.S. I REALLY DO LOVE IT THOUGH!!! AHHH! Report Review
