Review #1, by marauderfan An Exploration and Analysis of the Development and Root Cause of Attraction Between Two Teenage Subjects

1st September 2016:
Gift Tag!

Em, this is gold. I might even say that it's Au. (Not AU.)

I think this has got to be the most original James/Lily piece I've ever seen. I've read parody Jily, fluffy ones, sad ones, but never a scientific article explaining how Lily went from hate to love. I love how well thought out everything is - clearly a lot of research went into this study.

I did notice however that it was missing an abstract. :P Perhaps that will aid in its submission to the journal of your choice.

Bahahahaha all these references are hilarious too. I mean, the rest of the fic takes itself seriously, or at least pretends to, but the references are just like LOLOLOLOL. Absolutely Completely Legitimate and Ethical and Undoubtedly Trustworthy Journal of Psychology, -- Oh this is my favorite scientific journal! The Not Freud one made me laugh too but I don't think I can copy and paste it here due to a couple of the words :P Also the fact that the section of James' diary used in this study is like 1700 pages haha

P.S. I would also like to inform S. Black that he has been fined 50 galleons for manipulating and potentially falsifying data in such a groundbreaking study.

Awesome story, Em :D

Author's Response: Kristin,

I see what you have done there and assure you that I am laughing hysterically.

That you regard this study to be original will really help me with getting my case study on the Absolutely Completely Legitimate and Ethical and Undoubtedly Trustworthy Journal of Psychology. Thanks for that.

I am not aware of abstracts within case studies, but, if it helps, being a freelance researcher, I think of myself as a very casual sort of researcher. I do take my work very seriously, however: casual, albeit serious.

Ah, yes, the references. All completely legitimate, I assure you. You laugh, I presume, because of the relief you experience about this study being a genuine one? No? I mean statistically, that was a better guess than if I had presumed you were laughing because you thought the references were jokes.

James's diary was a lengthy read, yes. I should mention that I only used one out of the numerous volumes I read through.

S. Black has been notified and is overcome with so much smugness that it must be physically painful.

I thank you greatly for your feedback.

Regards,

Hi! Here for the gift tag! (sorry it took so long!)

OMG this is hilarious! I love how scientific this is, and how in depth everything is! The fact that you annotated everything just makes the whole Case Study seem that much more realistic (I mean, it is a Case Study for all intents and purposes, it's just a fic here right now :P).

I also loved how you examined every aspect of their relationship, from the fact that they essentially grew up together to the fact that they would present the same values and personality traits. It lent itself to the scientific view and also was really cool to think about!

The references! OMG they are amazing! I loved how you had those little misspellings of Potter, especially since you had those asterisks saying that the Sirius had probably gotten his hand on the Case Study. It was really cute to see! And the fact that is acknowledges James's ego! They're probably my favourite part of the entire Case Study!

This was really cool and absolutely completely different than anything I've ever seen! I'm so glad I read this, because it's awesome!

Lo :)

Author's Response: Lo,

As you may know, there are consequences to improper--or lack of--annotating and citing. The Absolutely Completely Legitimate and Ethical and Undoubtedly Trustworthy Journal of Psychology are feverent about acknowledging the work of other researchers. Citing also, I believe, gives my work more credibility. You know, to show that I've actually done the research. . . ;)

James ego--well, yes, I have to account for potential biases. All part of being a responsible researcher.

Thank you for your feedback.

Kindest regards,

I see you around so much (MAURICE MOSS, ANYBODY?!) but I don't think I've ever read anything from you! *hides* Well, this story looked like an interesting place to start (my ears are getting hot).

This was absolutely hilarious. What an original, unique idea. I was scrolling eagerly between the text and the references, laughing my socks off all the while. Who knew relationships could be studied like so?

This is hilarious. You're hilarious. I'll have to stop by soon and check out more of your absolutely brilliant work.

I rate you A+ for this study. Well done, you.

♥ Bianca

Author's Response: Bianca,

Maurice Moss is a genius as was his creation. I can only hope to one day be approximately a third of him at a 5% significance level. I assure you, the hilarity of this paper is unintentional. If my methods are laughable, I seek critique for improvement. Your perception of the originality of this paper flatters me. It seems I have, indeed, hit, as they say, a gold mine with teenage hormones and their social manifestations from a psychological perspective.

It is a curious phenomenon that you have described, perhaps one that should be delved into further: the sporadic self-doffing of socks upon abundant laughter of the wearer of the socks. Curious, indeed!

I am glad, at least, that my paper was laughter-inducing--laughter is the best medicine afterall, as they claim, although that's scientifically dubious and not exactly my field of study--if not thought-provoking, serious discussion-inspiring as was my primary goal. I am honoured for this paper to have been called brilliant, though. . . so that's a plus.

Review #4, by Roisin An Exploration and Analysis of the Development and Root Cause of Attraction Between Two Teenage Subjects

29th March 2016:
Dear Ms. Proclamations,

The British Journal of Wizarding Anthropology is pleased to inform you that your paper, An Exploration and Analysis of the Development and Root Cause of Attraction Between Two Teenage Subjects, has passed peer review and is accepted for publication. It is the position of the BJWA that your analysis is a valuable addition into the state of the research of the James Potter and Lily Evans pairing. "Two Teenage Subjects" provides a persuasive, data driven argument against, and inquiry of, the hitherto prevailing "Potter's Charm" theory. On the larger scale, this analysis provides a touchstone into the study of Teenage Fanfic Characters generally.

Reviewer Notes:
-Application of Misattribution and Cognitive Dissonance Theory to subjects, Potter and Evans, proves a compelling avenue for discussion. I believe your analysis will open up a new line of study into this pairing.
-Your references are really important.

The BJWA thanks you for your submission, and for adding to the wealth of knowledge regarding Romantic Marauder Pairings. Please accept our highest congratulations.

Sincerely,
Dr. N. Caff, PhD
Managing Editor
BJWA Peer Review Program

Author's Response: Dr. Caff,

Allow me a moment of unprofessionalism. . .

Review #5, by Dojh167 An Exploration and Analysis of the Development and Root Cause of Attraction Between Two Teenage Subjects

6th March 2016:
For the HPFF Review-A-Thon

Haha, this is such a wonderful, original idea!

You handled the tone of this story perfectly. There is just such a wonderful combination of pompous self-importance, plus the ludicrous nature of the subject matter. You balanced these so wonderfully, giving it the tone of someone who is doing an amazing job of keeping a straight face.

And the REFERENCES! Pure gold.

If it hadn't been one of the references, I would have guessed that this was somehow Sirius' wedding speech to the Potters. Though I suppose I wouldn't put it past Sirius to extensively credit himself in said speech.

Gotta respect Freud for laying it all out in the title ;)

I think Constance and Nottea's "Straightforward" is a bit too much for me...

Uh... James... You need to work on better lines than whatever you're going for with that speckled thing... Oh WAIT you can't because you're DEAD. Just goes to show. The night is speckled...

I am not sure I totally agree with everything stated here, but it is so formally put and published, that who am to argue?

Sam.

Author's Response: Sam,

I thank you for this review; they serve to strengthen the significance of this case study and I appreciate it very much. Indeed, I did strike, as they say, 'a gold mine' when it came to my sources. It is a wonder I was able to access them and they proved to be invaluable throughout the case. I am not excessively well acquainted with Mr. Black, although, I agree--he is likely to accept, or rather, take, credit.

Indeed, N. O. Freud, is passionate about the psychologist who shares his/her last name. . . in the negative sense. Constance and Nottea's paper was reflective of their title--that was, as they say, 'a blast.'

It is not known to me whether or not Mr. Potter improved upon his 'lines,' but an interview at this point would be downright impossible given his dead-ish-ness--that's the technical term.

Fear not to argue with words formally put and words published for even 'experts' are prone to ignorance.

Sincerely,
P. Proclamations

Review #6, by HermyLuna2 An Exploration and Analysis of the Development and Root Cause of Attraction Between Two Teenage Subjects

10th February 2016:
Good publication, very good references, but personally I would also recommend replicating the study with control subjects for both Evans and Potter, to further explore the effect of Evans's glasses remark and Potter's 'charms'.
Nonetheless this publication gives a really useful insight in the interiguing phenomen and sheds new light on the question of Haddaway*

* Haddaway, What is love? 1993

Author's Response: Feedback is very much appreciated. The recommendation, however, proves of little value: replicating the study with controls is both unethical--as defined by the national research ethics board (it is unethical to experiment on humans to that degree because of potential subject distress); not within the scope of this study--it is, after all, a case study rather than an experiment; and impossible--subjects are known to be deceased and, therefore, unfit to participate in further studies. In any case, subjects may be susceptible to contamination having been the centre of this study; the particular risks have yet to be more concretely defined. Further analysis of each subject as it pertains to 'dates' with other subjects by mentioned within the study is, once more, beyond the scope of this study as it looks specifically at the Potter-Evans dynamic; anything further would have been too broad.

Indeed, though this study may imply love, it does not explore very much of it; rather, it focuses on attraction. Granted, attraction is known to precede love—romantic and companionate. To touch upon it briefly: arguably, the two most predominant qualities of a relationship involving love is self-disclosure and equity, which I do believe may have occurred in the Potter-Evans dynamic as it progressed in the time period beyond this study.

Certainly, however, the suggestions could be utilised to further understand the forces at play here in another study

What is love, indeed? Does this study answer that? Not particularly. Although, from a biological perspective, studies have shown that it may be linked to oxytocin. Once again, this feedback is appreciated.
