For the House Cup 2014 Review
I just read the companion piece to this, so I know this'll be good! :)
"less than gryffindor's golden boy" I love that phrasing!
Lily seems more observant than James does, but I guess she doesn't know the back-story. I think it's interesting how Lily surpresses the butterflies. (It's very Lily!)
Yes! I love how she puts it to an end. Awesome story! :)

Hey!

Ah, this was such a lovely fic to read! I just finished reading Kayla's version of this story, and I really loved how well the two stories connected! I'm really impressed by how well the scenarios match, particularly with the dialogue (which is written really well by the way) - I felt like everything just flowed so well and smoothly. It was so interesting reading about the moment from Lily's perspective, and I felt like you really did her justice in her characterisation. I found it really realistic that Lily would be so aware of all of James' habits and really know him and read him so well. I also loved how Lily was so considerate - going to the Three Broomsticks despite it not really being her cup of tea, and also not teasing James after the spilt drink. All in all, I really enjoyed reading this, and I think you did a lovely job writing it! :)

Author's Response: Hi Charlotte! Thanks so much for the review! I'm so sorry it took so long for me to respond to it. But I appreciate your kind words so much! I had never really written anything like this before, and definitely not for a writing duo challenge. So it was a really fun experience. Kayla and I compared notes on the dialogue so it would match :) And I'm so glad you liked Lily! I thought she would be a really observant person, and it was obvious from the books that she really cared about James. I wanted to bring those qualities together in a fluffy way, and I'm really happy you enjoyed the result :) Thanks again!

Hi Maggie! :)

Aw, this was just so adorable! You write fluff really well. :) One of the things I really liked about this story was Lily's clear adoration of James. It's constantly there - when she's looking at him, when she's thinking about him - even when he's doing something silly she can't help but think that he's adorable. I especially liked the line where she admits he's a fox! Also, Lily is so clever, noticing that there is something up with the butterbeer and seeing Remus' arm. You did a good job of putting her in canon with how perceptive she is.

James being so awkward and nervous here was so funny as well. I really liked the cameo with the snitch, and how he honestly just seemed so miserable and nervous! The Marauders getting involved in one another's love lives and spying seemed so approapriate, in fact they felt very canon as well, especially with Sirius cat-calling when Lily and James kissed.

The ending to this was so adorable, and I liked how Lily asked him if he really thought she'd say no! :P She knows him so well, and you really got that fun feeling of love across.

This was a wonderful read, well done! :D
