Review #1, by Helga Hufflepuff The Three Broomsticks

8th March 2015:
Hello dear!

What a fun story! It was entertaining to see James as the target of the Marauder pranks, although I find it hard to believe that they were running out of ideas after only 2-3 tricks. Maybe they only had 2-3 tricks they were willing to pull on their friend.

I really loved how Lily wanted to get to the bottom of whatever was bothering James; it really shows she actually cares about him.

Sweet story!


Author's Response: *fans self* Wow, this is such an honor! It's like I'm meeting the queen right now! Thank you for coming by to leave me a review, and I'm so glad you enjoyed :)

Review #2, by Harry James Potter The Three Broomsticks

24th January 2015:
Hello, Maggie. I read Kayla's half of this story yesterday and as weird as it is for me that this website exists, I really liked reading about my parents when they were younger. I ventured on to the forums and she said that my review made her day, but also that there was another side to this story so here I am.

It's nice to read about my mum's feelings towards my dad, and that they weren't always angry ones. And that my dad had another side to him, rather than always being an arrogant prat.

I don't get this website or why there's so many stories about me and Draco bloody Malfoy fancying each other, but this is most definitely one of the better ones. So, er- thanks.

Also, Ron's been bugging me to ask everyone on here if they know where he can find the Ron Weasley FanFiction page? He's really annoyed that he can't find it.

Author's Response: Hi, thank you so much for coming by! I have to say it is an honor to get a review from the Boy Who Lived himself ;) I've never written any Jily before now, but it was fun and Kayla was a great partner!

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! :)

Author's Response: Hi! Ugh, I am the worst for leaving this review unanswered for so long. But thank you so much for stopping by! It's great to hear from a fellow Puff, especially since this story was written for a Hufflepuff common room event. Kayla was such a fun partner to work with, and I'm glad you enjoyed her piece as well! I'd never written Marauders and I'm a Snily shipper, so I asked her to really challenge my comfort zone when she came up with the era and pairing :) I'm glad you enjoyed Lily's perspective, and I hope that I did her justice! Thanks again for your time and your kind words!

Review #4, by maskedmuggle The Three Broomsticks

17th April 2014:

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!

Review #6, by Lululuna The Three Broomsticks

8th March 2014:
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

Gry/Sly Blackout - 2/7

Author's Response: Hi, Jenna! Ugh, it's been months and I'm so sorry! But I do want to give this lovely review the response it deserves :)

This story was so much fun to write! Kayla was a great partner, and she and I worked really well together to get the ideas flowing. I couldn't have done it without her, and I hope you enjoyed her take on this as well!

I'm glad you thought the fluff worked, because I never write it. Marauder fluff is more Kayla's scene, I think, which is why I wanted to try it :) And I'm sort of a Snily shipper, so it was a challenge for me to write Lily being so smitten with James. But it's canon! It makes sense! Haha, I just had to grit my teeth and do it, and in the end the pairing did feel right. I feel like we don't know a whole lot about Lily in canon, but she did seem very observant and clever, and I tried to get that across. I'm glad those qualities came through for you!

Oh, James. He was surprisingly fun to write. I hope he turned out as precious and awkward as I imagined him. And since the other Marauders didn't really get much face time, I tried to make the most of their mannerisms and little lines of dialogue. It was a challenge to make each of them seem true to canon when I only had a few words to flesh them out.

I'm so glad you stopped by to read this! Writing it was a fun experience, and I absolutely loved working with Kayla. Thanks again, Jenna! You're wonderful :)
