Review #1, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Tea Time

21st June 2015:
This was another adorable chapter!

Petunia really made me roll my eyes - she's so jealous, and treats Lily so poorly because of it! :(

And James is SO annoying, but it's actually kind of cute how annoying he is, and it's obvious that he likes Lily a lot.

I loved the funny little moments with Lily's parents, like James not knowing who Dickens was, and Mr. and Mrs. Evans not knowing about Quidditch.

And I can definitely see how Lily would start to laugh and James' antics and realize that she likes him.

Another wonderful chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks again!

We tried to show Petunia as jealous rather than just outright hating her sister.

Yes, those were fun to come up with.

It's slow but steady progress. He needs to not take it too far and she needs to be a little less stubborn.

Thanks for another great review!

Awww! This is so cute! I mean, I feel awful for Lily because of what Severus said to her, but I really love seeing how she and James could possibly begin to finally become something more than friends!

I also really like that you've included that Lily struggles with Transfiguration. For some reason, in my mind I always pictured her as sort of like Hermione - good at everything - so I think it's very realistic to make her NOT perfect, it makes her a much more likeable character.

Great job! Can't wait to read the next chapter!

Author's Response: We can't imagine the level of betrayal she felt after that. With that sort of experience, I would think she'd be open to anyone but Severus.

Olivander and Slughorn's comments about Lily gave us clues as to what she would be good at (Charms and Potions), plus her personally defying Voldemort three times and surviving makes us believe she was good at Defense Against the Dark Arts. What's left for her to be bad at? Transfiguration. (it also fit with James)

We'll see you there!

Okay, review #2! This one was for Ludus, yes? I keep getting confused! I hope it is for Ludus otherwise I'm getting it all muddled up haha :))

OMG, the beginning with Petunia and Lily was hilarious. Petunia's reactions were just perfect generally in this chapter, you could sense the jealousness of the fact Lily is magic and she isn't. Poor Petunia!

James and Lily's interactions were funny too, especially the ending! OMG, Jily is like my OTP and the amount of Jily-ness in this chapter was too much! It literally had me squealing like a pig from happiness and mush. Such a good entry for Ludus too, you could feel the playfulness between James and Lily and also between Lily and Petunia which works for this type of love perfectly!

Really enjoyed reading this chapter and I might go and read the first one now!

Good luck!

Author's Response: Yes, it's Ludus. :) {I keep almost typing Lumos, because that's obviously the closest REAL word. ;) }

Heehee some of the dialogue still makes me smile! :) I'm really glad you liked it and James/Lily so much!

That's so exciting that you liked it enough to read the other chapter! :D Just a note, since it's in the middle of OWLS it's a bit more on the Drama side and a bit less on the Humor side.

We had a blast writing this chapter. Thanks for the lovely review!

Great writing style. Longer!

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! We're glad you enjoyed it. Unfortunately, we don't currently have any plans for more Marauder stories, but we may look into it in the future. We do however have other stories ready or almost ready to be posted.

Have a good day, no one! ;)

Review #5, by wonderstruck OWLs

4th February 2014:
This was an excellent read! I love stories of James/Lily that aren't too outrageous and go along with canon. I think you did a lovely job of capturing the personalities of the characters. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you very much!

I agree, just earlier that day it was still apparent that Lily hated James with all her guts- I think that's an expression. Loathing that deep just doesn't go away overnight.

We're very glad you enjoyed reading it!
