I really liked the story, it's definitely not the sort of thing I'd usually read and I found it very pleasant.
When I read the first chapter and worked out which partnership the book would be based on, I do admit to making a whooping noise and being generally very excited.
I like the reality you've given all the characters, Lily's almost fear of relationships which could have been expanded on slightly as well as the journey she takes as a character parallel and intertwined to her relationship with Matt in becoming an investigator.
You really do show a wonderful character arc in this story in which the characters do change and grow as the relationship progresses and it was wonderful to read about.
... I do get the feeling that your AP series may go beyond 7 books... as with him always at work and doing stuff, dark and interesting stuff must be going on as well as his relationship with the fiancee which also proves interesting... maybe there will be a time jump?
Overall a solid piece of work that had me very interested and looking forward to updates. Report Review
BEST STORY EVER!
I loved this story and I look forward to reading the next Albus novel because I loved all of them and I will be so excited when you post it.
All of your stories that I have reviewed on I gave a 10/10 because you writing is amazing.
I'm 13 and I am still working on my writing skills and I hope to get better. Thank you for writing such amazing stories and I hope you keep writing forever and ever and ever and ever!! Report Review
This is a great story and was a very enjoyable read. I would love to know what ends up happening to Matt and Lily but this story ends well with them just being in love and enjoying being around each other. I liked how Matt's story played out and am glad he trusted Lily enough to eventually tell her what was going on. And you did a great job handling the many different characters (cousins/parents/children). I didn't feel like I was lost or overwhelmed by all the different people. You kept the focus on Lily and Matt but still had lots of other characters involved. Great story. Can't wait to read more from you! Report Review
Wow last chapter! I really enjoyed this story; although there hasn't being one story you have written so far which I haven't enjoyed. As some other people have already written a sequel one day will be amazing. I am really curious to how Lily's first cases go. Anyway loved this story Report Review
Wah wah wah wah wah it's over! No!
This is really good and I've loved the whole thing. I really really really really really... want Matt and Lily to get married though. (That is a sequel hint.)
THIS IS AWEWOME 1,000,000/10

Lovely epilogue, I am really going to miss this story. Report Review
Yay! A fifth Albus novel. Excellent epilogue... A Lily and Matt wedding would be great! Report Review
Sequel please! Love these characters! Report Review
I find Sir Thumbs cute, even though he's grumpy. ^.^ Also, first kiss! Yay!!! Kind of awkward though.. Why did you break away, Matt? :( Report Review
Yay! Second chapter! I'm kind of leaving these reviews as a bookmark for myself, so don't mind them. Anyways, I see Lily is starting to notice Matt! ;) Off to the next chapter! Report Review
Cool chapter! Really interesting so far! I plan to keep reading! :) Report Review
Very cute ending. I'm very sad to see it go, it was really fun! Plus, now I'm like, what kind of cases is she going to get with her cousin?? Will they find a cure/better potion to help his lycanthropy? I do really like the way you ended it with that even with the unknown future, it'll be less scary together.
Congrats on a great story!
Woot, first review on last chappie :) Report Review
Wow I love this story :D Matt and Lily are adorable together. Are you finishing it now? Hope you write a sequel one day. What are you going to start writing next?Author's Response: I'm so glad you like it! I think Matt and Lily are adorable together, too. I have finished writing it, but I don't see a sequel in the future for this one. Sorry! I'm currently working on my 5th Albus novel, so that's next. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Hm... I know I left a review but for some reason, it did not go through. Anyway, I read this last week and I am saddened that this is going to end. Do you think you could do a sequel maybe? It is a very interesting next generation with OC characters story. And of course, I am also looking forward to your Albus series. I think you are the only author writing an entire Albus series.Author's Response: Weird! I guess the Internet ate it. I don't think I'm going to do a sequel for this one. Sorry! I've always seen it as a stand alone fic and have no ideas for any sort of sequel. But I'll be posting other stuff. There are a few other authors who are working on Albus series', but I think mine is probably the longest at this point. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
I can't wait until Thursday then!
This is my first (or second?) review on this story. It's really good! I like Lily and have been rooting for them since the beginning. I read some of your other stories about Albus and his friends and those are great, too. I think this is like your 106th review on this story. So that's cool! Anyway, I'm off to read Blue Moon, see you.
FlippAuthor's Response: Thursday is here! I'll be posting the epilogue shortly. I'm really glad you like the fic, as well as my other stories! Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Awww, this one is so sweet :D The fact that he's thinking of kids is a good sign, he must Really love her. I mean if there's any chance she could accidentally get pregnant, he'd want her to know what she's in for.
I didn't think about how they wouldn't live as long as regular wizards.. hmm. It probably would be that much harder to deal with in old age.
Wait wait wait... You're ending the story now?? or is it continuing in Blue Moon??
There's so much more the story can do! I hope you're just continuing it there!
Great job hun :)Author's Response: He does really love her. He's thinking of kids, but he's not sure if he wants any at this point. Lily, of course, does not. But that could change.
I've always imagined turning into a wolf and back again once a month would take its toll on one's body and would definitely be harder in old age. I am ending it after the epilogue, which is next. Blue Moon is just a companion one-shot. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Woah that's a lot.
I have 30 cousins! So my family is bigger than the Weasleys! And those cousins are all my first cousins, I don't even know how many second cousins I have.
Ok then whatever
I really like this story. They kissed augh!
Matt is cute. Well he sounds cute. And Lily. She's just awesome. The end bye.Author's Response: Indeed it is! I only have four first cousins, so my family is drastically smaller than the Weasleys. But I do have numerous second cousins. Wow, your family is huge!
I'm glad you like the story so far! Matt is cute. I always imagined him as growing up to be very cute. Not smoking hot, and kind of short and scrawny, but cute. I'm glad you like my Lily! Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Aw I loved this chapter, all warm and fuzzy and happy. I liked how much it seemed to sum up Lucy's growth throughout the story. It had a sense of closure to it, you can feel things finishing up, and yet there's this real hope for the future too, Lily's finally found a prospective career and not just a temporary job, she's seriously thinking about things like marriage and kids and she's committed to her relationship with Matt.
I really liked the point about lycanthropy taking a physical toll on werewolves in the long term. I'd never given it much thought before, but it seems logical albeit very sad for them.
I'm so sad this story is nearly finished, I've been enjoying it so much :) Fabulous work!Author's Response: Yep, it's very fluffy and happy! But that's the overall tone of this fic, despite the bit of angst thrown in. Lily definitely grew a lot in this fic, far more than I imagined when I first started writing it.
Both Lily and Matt definitely have hope for the future now. The two of them were both stuck in a rut in terms of relationships and jobs, but now they can both move on, together. And just the fact that Lily is thinking of marriage and isn't totally turned off to the idea is amazing!
The physical toll lycanthropy takes on a person is rarely mentioned in FF, but I think JKR alluded to it a lot throughout the HP series. Never in detail since the fics were from Harry's POV and not Remus's, but she laid the groundwork. I just expanded it. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Everything's out, what a relief. I'm so glad that everything worked out for the better. I really do like Matt and Lily together and they deserve to be happy. Also, I really just wanted to reach through the computer and give Matt a hug when Lily first confronted him about his lycanthropy because of how anxious he got. Poor guy, he's been through too much bad for one person. But I really liked how Lily handled it and kept herself together; she really is maturing more now that she's been dating Matt. Matt is definitely the best thing to happen to Lily, and vice versa. Great chapter! (:Author's Response: Yep! It took a while, but they finally talked it through. The two of them work so well together. Lily definitely did not make a good choice as to when to confront Matt, but she's still Lily (and therefore impulsive) even though she has changed.
Matt really has been through so much, so it's great that he found Lily. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Aw! This is just so sweet. I want to laugh and cry at the same time. Lily is like Ron. Ron in JKR's world is kind of oblivious but if you really read in between the lines of the books, Ron is very much in tune. Excellent characterisation of Lily. I look forward to the one shot. I thought that Amy would have offered the potion to the bloke who bit Matt...Author's Response: Aw, I'm glad you liked it! Lily is a lot like Ron in many ways. Funny how genetics work! I'm really happy you like Lily's characterization. Amy would've offered the potion to the bloke who bit Matt, but she would've had to track him down again and that would've been difficult. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Finally he knew she knows!Author's Response: Yes, he does! Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
can't wait for this one to be finished.. also, going slightly postal waiting for the next Albus and crew book. it's not up yet... pick a name d#mn you!! :o)
oh, the word "alter" should be "Altar".Author's Response: No, it won't be up until I finish this, which won't be for another few weeks. Sadly I can't just make a title magically appear, so you'll have to wait. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Poor James :( He's the single man out. I just want to give him a hug. And Lily is doing the right thing letting the lycanthropy discovery air out until the next full moon to be more sure for now. I'm not looking forward to what's coming as I'm sure it won't be pretty... can we just skip over that to the happy part where there are no secrets are holding them back? But great buildup leading up to it as I can sense the tension rising for Lily in this chapter over the whole dilemma. Great chapter (:Author's Response: He is. :( But he'll get there eventually. Lily is definitely doing the right thing. She wants to be sure, and it can't hurt to have a few weeks to think on it. Aww, nope, can't skip over the next part! But it might not be as bad as you're expecting. ;) Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Yay! An Albus novel coming up! Great news! As for this chapter, it really got me out of a rot. I felt so low until I read this. Thank you.Author's Response: Indeed! I'm excited about posting it. I'm glad you liked the chapter! Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
One question cause I got a little confused, Teddy knows about Matt or not?Author's Response: Teddy does know about Matt. He found out in Albus's first or second year. Can't remember which at the moment! Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
