Loved it! So glad Peter finally realised his faults. I'm sure that somewhere there must be a mistake to do with going into one's future but I won't bother looking for one 'cause this story was just too good!
It's obvious that you've put a lot of thought into this, and came up with an ingenious plot.
10/10! 5*s! Whatever, this was brilliant!

That was wonderful! I love how you brought it all together in the end, and showed Wormtail in his sorrow and all. It was a great way to show the four marauders in their prime! Way to go!

I'm not sure there's anything I could say that could truly add to the magnitude of your story, but the most chilling aspect is the end, when you wrote about Peter and his feelings. It is this clear thought that strikes a deep chord.

[quote]"I wouldn't make him do anything bad."

"Can I trust you on that?" said James with a knowing smirk.

"Look, it wouldn't be that lacy-"
Oh my God, that line alone was worth logging on for! (Of course, the whole story was, but that line.... ROFL!)

I really like this story. Lots of humor and lots of yanks at the heartstrings, and both thuroughly believable. Good job!

Oh, wow. Wow.


This is an amazing fic. Your characters are all in-character, there's no absurd twisting of fate to push the plot, they seem real, they seem whole.

And it's wonderfully done. You're amazing. Thank you for writing this xD

All I have to say is well done! This was an excellent story and I am glad I stumbled upon it. I love your writing and will be on the lookout for more should you choose to write more.

On the technical side: a) the diaglogue was excellent and flowed well; b) the banter between the marauders was a good as any i have imagined; c) i love the ending with wormtail finally realizing the gravity of his sins. Excellent work!

I loved your story! It was great and so very realistic. Not like a lot of stories where they all try desperately to change it. I don't think they would do that. The only thing is do you realize they went back in October in the first chapter and November in the later ones?

It was a nice story but it could have been better. It's hard to think that Sirius, knowing he wouldn't be the one to betray James would ask for Petter to do 'his' job.

Sorry for double-ing, but I felt awful reading were it said "There's a reason its called an Unforgivable Curse, Padfoot," said Remus. "We don't want you spending the rest of your life in Azkaban." That was just-I can't describe it. It was wonderfully written, and had a fantastic plot. The beginning was funny, the middle was funny-sad, and the end was heart breaking. I'll never ever forget this one. I liked how there was no shipper-stuff here, I hate that stuff.

Reviewid: 125489Chapter: 4
Wonderful story! It had a nice plot, flowed well and was very well-thought out. However, the only thing was that it's slightly unrealistic in the world of Harry Potter. For some reason, I can't see something like that happening...but if it did, this is exactly how it would turn out. Great work! =)

Reviewer: BeatriceDate: 2005-06-23
Reviewid: 124916Chapter: 4
Amazing. That's all I can say...that story was so, so good. I can't image how you even came up with that! And your writing was absolutely wonderful, too. There was only one hole that I found: If Sirius knew that he wouldn't be the ones to betray James and Lily, then why didn't he agree to be their Secret-Keeper? Just a thought...but anyway, I really loved it, and I was completely riveted from the start. There were parts, like when the Marauders found out their fates, that my heart was beating like crazy. It was wonderful. Thank you for writing this fantastic story!

This is the most I've ever cried whilst reading a fanfic. I have tears streaming down my face just writing this review. No one could have had a better idea nor could have written it better.

I read chapter 4 while listening to Coldplay's Green Eyes and it killed me...

What surprisingly touched me so much, aside from Harry and James' embrace and the letters from Remus and Sirius, was Peter's he could have DONE such a thing. I know this is just a story, but it feels so real.

And these tears are real.

although i have a ten-page essay due in exactly three days, of which i have written zero pages, i'm glad that i've spent the past hour or so reading this story. it was hugely entertaining and it does get quite emotional towards the end. you must've put a lot of thought into planning out where the plot goes and all that, and i congratulate you on something so very complicated and yet so very real. this was niffled on some forum, and i'm glad to have found it. thanks for such a great experience.

I really am, quite honestly, speechless right now. And no, I'm not just saying this, but this is the most breathtakingling beautiful story I have ever come across in all my five years of fanfic reading. This is truly one in a million.

Touching and sweet. Especially the last chapter. I read it listening to Charlotte Church's "All Love Can Be" and I was nearing tears. That song sums up the entire story that you so masterfully wrote. I really wish I could think of something more witty and clever to say, but I can only leave you with the knowledge that you have truly touched a place in my heart that only very few have ever reached. Thank you.

it requires a great skill of writing to be able to have a story stick into someone's head even after they have finished reading it. what's more is if not only the story sticks, but also the emotion behind it. i'm still touched and affected by your story and it's definitely in my favorite fanficion list. ^__^

Wow. That was the one of the best pieces of Fanfiction I have ever read. Usually I wouldn't read this kind of story, because it's not that realistic, but you wrote that so well. You made me laugh, you made me cry, I'm just totally amazed. Thank you for this story.

Reviewer: ErinDate: 2005-03-27
Reviewid: 117840Chapter: 4 A few years back, fanfiction was my home on the internet, but I slowly lost faith in the idiocy that most of fanfiction is. And probably 3 years now, I haven't read any fanfiction...well, actually, I would try to read fanfiction, but after a few paragraphs, I would immediatley start convulsing at the wretchedness. This story, though...your amazing. I actually cried. A lot. The whole marauder story is always so sad. They had so much going for them, and then it all ended. And you captured that sense of tension and foreboding so well. And you always got the marauders so perfectly. I've always wanted to just hang out with them, and now I feel like I have.

Thanks and Bravo.

... well. It takes an awful lot to make me cry and for the most part it's been only Disney and real-life that have succeeded... before this story, that is. I'm wiping the tears from my cheek as I type this right now. And you know what? This story makes a lot of sense and I can actually picture it happening which I suppose is excellent for you since it means you're true to canon (for the most part). One last thing - I also very, very rarely read a fanfic twice but this one... I'm definately going to come back to this one. It was just too good. Sad, but good.

(P.S. write some more!)

*bawling eyes out over Peter* ENDING! SO SAD! WAAAAAH!

*calms down somewhat*

Now that I've got that out of my system... *sigh* I absolutely love reading good MWPP fanfiction, and this most absotively posilutely qualifies. I have quite literally FOREVER been imagining what would happen if the two generations were to meet- lo, my answer, and it could not have been presented more wonderfully! Everybody was in character, the humor and drama were perfectly balanced, and- and- Jesus, I can't see how anyone could possibly write like that! It's a gift, I tell you! And you've used it wisely!

But seriously- words cannot describe the sheer, giddy, exhilerating joy I got out of reading this fanfiction. And I want to thank you right now for portraying Peter EXACTLY the way he should be. Half of the reason that I love you madly at this moment in time is because you've shown him as a very real, very human-like, and very loyal character, which is how I think he should be. I'm speaking, of course, about fifteen-year-old Peter, but I loved his adult counterpart too- how, at the very end, he finally realizes what he's done- and he feels ashamed of himself for it. My SINCEREST congratulations for writing such a powerful scene! (It brought me to tears! Literally! I'm not just saying that! Tears in my eyes!) *cough*

I LOVE THIS FIC. And yes, as you might have gathered, I could ramble on all night about how much I adore it, and in the morning I'll look back and think, 'How could I say such corny stuff'- but it's true, every single gosh darned word of it, and I feel like leaping through my computer screen and hugging you to death, if such a thing could be humanly feasible. You have officially MADE MY DAY. And the next day. And the next day. And the day after that. And the day after that. And, quite possibly, the day following that one. And, even though I've been considering killing myself for not being able to find that Tolkein quote, I'm sure the thought of your amazing writing will sustain me.

And now comes time for me to apologize for making you read such a ludocrisly (sp?) long review. Deepest apologies if I have wasted your valuable time... as I no doubt have.

Reviewer: MireyaDate: 2004-12-13
Reviewid: 107686Chapter: 4
Hey! I really enjoyed reading this story. It started out as a lighthearted romp between our beloved Marauders, but slowly evolved into being serious and thought-provoking. The transition was not too swift or forced, and I think it showed us why we really love reading MWPP fics, since they are a mixture of the humor of their past and the - er - angst of their future? Hmm. Anyway, the characters were also portrayed very realistically, especially since Peter was not shown as really stupid or treacherous from the start. I think my only problem with the story was that the time-twist wouldn't have worked very well - it seems that once James knew he was going to be betrayed, even if he tried not to, he would subconsciously distance himself from the other three. But otherwise it was a lovely story. Thank you!

Reviewer: AzaeliaDate: 2004-11-28
Reviewid: 106248Chapter: 4
Excellent work: Funny, painful, and impossible to stop reading. Although this was written in 2002, I was surprised how well it fits with everything we currently know about the HP universe. Loved the Hitchhiker refrences, and I have been driving myself crazy trying to find your Tolkien quote. (stops self before getting too off topic)

Anyway, I loved your characterizations: even the minor ones, like Neville, who was mentioned maybe twice, were right on target.
My favorite part of all was when James and Harry were saying good-bye. It was heart-wrenching, amazing writing. Also loved the very end with Peter. Just that part made me realize how well thought-out this story was: all effects of the time-travel were analyzed.
I loved the banter between the Marauders: It was not strained humor, but very genuine and true to natural speech.

I wish you'd write more, not of this story, just more in general; though that may not happen since this was written a long time ago. Just wish you would is all.

Great job, beautiful, painful, excellent work!

(Cries) That was the saddest story I've ever read, and just as Harry was reading the letter from his dad the Beach boys 'God only knows' came on, the perfect song methinks for such a scene, (If you don't know the song watch 'love actually', it's the song at the very end, when their all in the airport, and plus it's a really good film lol.)

Just one little thing tho, at the beginning it's in october and it ends in november, although ur probably sick and tired of being told that. Really good story, your're a really talented writer! :)

OMG. OMG, OMG, OMG. I sound like an eleven-year-old fangirl, but that's all I can say. OMG OMG OMG. I love this fic-- I can't believe it only took me 20 minutes to read. Amazing, powerful, downright side. The line that got me however: "There's a reason its called an Unforgivable Curse, Padfoot," said Remus. "We don't want you spending the rest of your life in Azkaban."

Beautiful. Heart-wrenching.

Thank you. It was a fantastic piece of fic. My hands were sweating in Chapter 2, I mean, what is going to happen?!?! I loved it. There's so much to it, the dynamic between the Marauders is great and the reactions are so real. I cried a lot, sometimes that's how I know if I like some fics, how they make ME react. And your story certainly made me react, I laughed and cried and was at the edge of my seat at some parts. Really, GREAT JOB.

Wow. that was an amazing story!!! I was cracking up with laughter in the middle, even without explicit knowledge of all the different pranks!! and that last bit was really powerfull. you've really captured the characters complete persona. sometimes in fanfics Harry is obviously not himself... but in this... it was amazing. your portrayal of all the marauders was pretty flawless as well. and the letters of the older mauraders after they've grown and matured were spot on as well. keep writing!!!! If you ever need someone to read your stuff and comment, send me a story and I promise to be completly honest. or I could just read them!!!!!!! I dont write many fanfics, becuase I'm not confident in my abilities to protray the characters as beautifully as you have.

Wow is just about all I can say!

This was fabulous! I've read a number of Mauraders time traveling fics, but this one outstripped the others by a million miles. You've characterized the Mauraders perfectly, they're playful and are fond of pulling pranks, but they also can see the serious side of things. James's personality mirrors Harry's appropriatly- not too much, but enough so that it's clear that they are related. The end bit with Peter was great, I'm glad he realized his mistakes.

Your writing was wonderful throughout the fic- nicely descriptive and perfectly narrarated.
Great job with this fic- it's one of the better ones I've read in a while!

Reviewid: 94692Chapter: 4
Really, *really* well done. The entire concept of your story is ingenious, and I actually cried when James and Harry share their first and only embrace. The letters that Harry receives, especially the one from James, were bittersweet and heart-wrenching in their sincerity. Sirius' devotion to his best friend and comment that Harry literally saved his life was wonderfully poignant. Harry, Ron, and Hermione were all kept wonderfully in character, although (to nitpick) I thought teenaqe Remus wasn't. His comments just struck me as very out-of-character things to say, although that is just my opinion. Sirius and James, however, were absolutely brilliantly done and so very, very canon. In short, I love this fic and its emotional depth is truly haunting.

God, that was good. Even the horrible tasting pickle I bit into while reading this didn't put a damper on how wonderful this entire thing was. And I especially loved the ending, as I often feel sorry for Peter and I was glad that you didn't put him into a horrible light, that you showed he had some remorse for what he did. Anywho, I'm off to read some more random fanfiction. Cheers! -Cheesy

This idea was superb, and your writing- excellent. If you ever go back to this story, and write how maybe things did change and Harry still got his father, that would be interesting too. For the moment, this was a heart wrentching, tear jerking story that will bring my to sobs every time I read it. Well done!!

That was an amazing story. I love the way you wrote the marauders and captured their playfullness and innocence. The letters at the end were a perfect end, emotional but not overly so.
I hope you write something else later on.
I wish you all the best in the future

Brilliant story!! Laughed myself silly in some parts. Lovely use of HP knowledge of characters. Almost cried when they have to say goodbye. Thanks for a most enjoyable and entertaining reading experience.

This is the only fanfic that has ever made me cry.
The behavior of the marauders was excellent; very entertaining. I'm a sucker for any marauder fics. And now it's 11:30pm, and I have finals tomorrow, but it was worth it because this story was so good! Very funny when the mood was light, but very touching and sad when the mood was more emotional. That part where Sirius wants to know if it will be him who betrays James was very touching, and especially so the letters that Harry gets at the end.
wah I need a tissue

Yaz: Excellent story. You got me into fan fics.Please make another story. I might make a picture to match a chapter.

Marg: I thought it was great! You should make another one! We love Harry Potter so much that we use the Marauders names. I am Prongs. Yaz is Padfoot, and Vik is Mooney. We went by our personalities. We are like the characters.

Vik: All I have to say is that the story Some Things are Better Left Unknown is the GREATEST!! HP Story. It is just as good as JK Rowling's books. After I read the story I wished it would be true. The story was realistic to the book and JK Rowling's style. Great Job!!

Me again. I laughed. I cried. Mostly I cried. It was the best I've ever read. Usually only Rowling could make me cry. I'm still trying to hold back the tears. You should think about making this your profession. you remind me of my cousin. I bow to you and hope you keep up the mischief!

cool story. Very sad I got tearful. Mainly because of the story I concoctioned that goes with it...if I were to write this. But none the less great tragedy. I like how James took he's fate and how sirius acted like I suspected he would. And how he and Harry embraced. The whole while I hated Peter for being there. I wish harry would have told them it was him. Maybe james would still be alive.

That's one of the weirdest mental images I ever had when reading a story. Very well resolved, although I don't like the idea of modifying time travel.

I was thinking, "Quidditch captain? Huh?" and, "If I'd written this, I'd make it 6th year. Just so everyone except Remus discovers they've come to a sticky end." Yeah, mean, but it'd be uber-dramatic. And then I realised this is from 2002.

That was spectacular, simply amazing, i don't think i've read a good marauder fic like that in ages, especially not a time-travel one. Most of the ones i read tend to become inconsistant and boring, but you managed to not only to sustain interest extremely well, but make this one of the most enjoayble reads i've had.
Very consistant and easy to read, the plot was well thought out, characters seemed perfect to me and your writing skills polished everything off fantastically to make this so wonderful.
Loved the 'Somebody Else's Problem Charm' too: 'Life the Universe and Everything' if i'm not mistaken (if not that then one of the books in the Hitchiker series) I think that fit in excellently, it made the story even more interesting and unique. (Loved the Vulcan comment too ... it was Vulcans you were talking about right? The 'ear' prank? ^^;)
Anyway, thank you so much for this truly fantastic read, i thoroughly enjoyed it.

I would just like to say that this is an amazing piece of work. As I type, I call feel the wetness of the tears I cried while reading it. You are so talented. I hope you continue to write, maybe even your own book someday, which is my dream. Thanks for writing something so beautiful, it really touched me.

Woah. and I mean WOAH! I'm only going to say this once: this was a great piece of work. Ok, maybe I'll say it again, this was a ... :) Seriously, I was very impressed by how well thought out the layout and details were...VERY detailed, in some ways. Like, you didn't describe the charm that sent them forward in the extreme(which would probably have been boring and a waste of space), but you described emotions and scenes quite vividly. A room with dusty chairs. Snapes blonde hair(LOL!), fruit salad and green eyes, ummm what were a few of my other faves? Anyway, I can't take too much time for this, so I guess I'll just have to say it again:this was a great piece of work! Are there any sequels? Prequels? Similar stories? I would love to read them...

...most of it. I don't think Peter's character at the end fit with what we saw in PoA.

But. Otherwise. Excellent.

My favorite part of this fanfic was that last section, the one that shows Wormtail as something different than a coward, something not quite malicious...human. He was very human and very vulnerable. The words were just right to make me feel sorry for him, and considering that's only happened once done some good writing.
