This is the first MWPP era fic I have EVER enjoyed. And that's really saying something. Thank you so much- you actually made this pairing interesting for me. I've always been bored by it. Thank you!!!

Sweet. Good use of the imagery and not-sugaryness of it all.
Very nice characterisation of both of them, especially Lily's thoughts on James. (The specific ones). And the trap that everyone fancies Padfoot. :-)

Oh, and I forgot to say something. I've taken up criticism classes and creative writing classes and all that. I've been in literary workshops and had been nagged by award-winning writers, and I just have to say that I couldn't find anything bad in your fic, considering I'm a creative writing major. You are good, and I wish I had half your talent. This fic's the best I've read, so far. I'll print it and keep this in my drawer, because I just lovelovelooove this. Keep on writing! :)

Just three words: I LOVE IT. I love the way the author related the title with the setting, and with the plot. Falliiiiiiing.

.. and it makes me so loooove sick. *sigh*

Wow... that's all I have to say... you are an excellent writer. I wish I had half of your talent. Wonderfully characterized and perfectly fits to canon.

Now that was a good story. It's very...true. Instead of a kiss-filled asking out, then a confession of undying love, you brought the story right down to Earth. Most like the ways it would and should go. I give you major points on this story. Congratulations

i'm SO obsessed with this fic-seriously, it's not even funny. it's the best L/J fic I've read EVER, and this is, like, the zillionth time I'm reading it. it's an awesome fic, and i hope you'll keep writing-especially about lilly and james-i love reading about them.

Omigosh this story is my favorite fanfic EVER!!! When are you going to write something else? I keep checking, but alas....

Reviewer: MelodieDate: 2004-02-20
Reviewid: 71554Chapter: 1
I loved how caring and tender and sweet James's feelings for Lily are portrayed. The first few paragraphs about snow falling was a bit dragging... I skipped over it. Something that bothered me--
"obviously unintelligent but rather pretty Ravenclaw."
Shouldn't a Ravenclaw be intelligent?

ohhhh, this is soo sweet. Beautifully writen. I love it, what else can I say? I love Lily and James fanfics, and this is definitely a very good one. Even though it doesn't involve never ending chapters, it is still lovely. ^_^ I hope you continue your writing, because you definitely have a telent for it.

This was great. It's now a favorite Lily/James story of mine. Their interaction was really good. I loved the inclusion of the nargles!

Wow! this is really nice!!! I especially like it because you used our knowledge of Lily and James, and showed us the transition between their fifth year, and seventh!!!

Your writing is also REALLY good!!!

Luv, me

Reviewer: JessDate: 2003-12-31
Reviewid: 65329Chapter: 1
This is easily the best L/J story I have ever read. Your characters are well developed and consistent with what we know to be true in canon, and the dialogue is realistic and seems to flow naturally. Nicely done.

What a fantastic story! It's just so how I imgained the two of them to be, and to watch Lily gradually thawing out is just wonderful. the last piece back in the common room was especially good.
Also, beautiful ending.

Why oh why is real life never like fanfic??

Oooooh...I love it!! Your descriptions are so good!! They are almost poetry, some of them. This fits in very well with canon, and I love James and Lily, very IC. Excellent job, how bout a sequel?? PLEASE????!!!!

Reviewid: 61892Chapter: 1
Awwww so cute. Seriously, I'm melting here. Finally a post-ootp L/J that I actually seem to like! This was a very good story and I love the way you handled Lily's emotions and James' changings. I liked the fact that it was all slow, and not rushing into snoggings and stuff already.
Write more!!!

Wow! Fantastic, soooooo sweet! Funny too... wow just brilliant simply brilliant.

Reviewer: AlkariDate: 2003-12-04
Reviewid: 61807Chapter: 1
Excellent! Very enjoyable and believable portrayal of James and Lily, and you kept just enough of James the Prat to make the repartee really sparkle.

"It was a terribly invasive move, she thought dimly, to rest his head against hers. Odd that she didn't seem to mind at all. Perhaps standing like this, and the whole journey which lead up to this moment, was nothing but a fanciful hallucination brought on by mince pies, Santa and carols. Or perhaps, she reflected, the commander was a greater strategist that she could ever have imagined, and it was time for the enemy to graciously wave the white flag to end this little skirmish.

But not the war, she mentally added with a small smirk. The war wasn't over yet. And, she was quite sure, Hogsmeade would make an excellent battleground."

Wonderful imagery here, and sets the tone for the future relationship.


Reviewer: DonDate: 2003-12-04
Reviewid: 61806Chapter: 1
Wonderful! A very plausible trip from rancor to affection! I like the implied planning that James uses to prove he is not unworthy. And I like listening to Lily's thoughts as she sounds out her own emotions. Very well done.

Reviewer: FaelaernDate: 2003-12-04
Reviewid: 61803Chapter: 1
Oooh. I've always liked a good Lily/James, and there are so few of those that fit post-OotP canon. I'm glad you wrote this, it was masterfully done and a wonderful read.

So. Good. I'm dumbfounded.
After a moment to regain coherency, that was very poetic.
So. Good.

That was REALLY good. I'm waiting for you to be upgraded to Professor's Bookshelf. Keep turning out work like this, and it won't be long!!

Reviewer: atroposDate: 2003-12-04
Reviewid: 61781Chapter: 1
That's a lovely job of portraying James and Lily's relationship at its turning point. I've seen a lot of discussion about how they could have gone from the couple we saw in Snape's worst memories to being Harry's parents, and this is a nice take on how it might have been. I liked your James - he's very three dimensional. And you've carefully illustrated how he has changed since their fifth year and Lily's reactions to those changes. I look forward to reading more of your work.

By far the best Lily James fic I've ever read! This was lovely and the dialogue was so believable and in was just wonderful! This was a perfect read for a cold winter night like this one. ^_^ Please write more, you are obviously an awesome writer and I would love to read more from you.

Keep it up!

Oh well done. A longish, drawn-out conversation is so rare in fan fiction. Most people want to rush to the "good stuff" as quickly as possible. Thanks for making the build up so believable and therefore making the payoff work as much as it did.

Reviewer: Fluffy_RoseDate: 2003-12-03

A lovely winter's tale to read on a rainy winter's evening - well done!


Reviewer: ScarlettDate: 2003-12-03
Reviewid: 61730Chapter: 1
This was wonderful! Your dialogue was priceless and rang of JKR. I could feel all of the emotions running through them, especially James's uncertainty and Lily's realization of her feelings for him. Well done.

Reviewer: gingerSnapDate: 2003-12-03

Really pulled at my heartstrings this one! I love the fact that James can be romantic & soppy but still cheeky at the same time. Lovely.

Reviewer: Seer CassandraDate: 2003-12-03
Reviewid: 61685Chapter: 1
Sheer brilliance! I loved it! Very IC, at least to how i pictured Lily and James. Is Jame's scar the result of his fight with Snape from the memory in the pensieve? Very good tie in to cannon there. The snowflake begining was a great way to begin the fic, and I loved how you tied that "theme" in throughout the rest of it. Amazing writing! Write more fics! I'll be looking for your name in the new postings!

Reviewer: RonniekinsDate: 2003-12-03
Reviewid: 61668Chapter: 1
Ha! It's up! *applauds for you*

I read this for the second time and I still loved it. James.... and Lily.... they were perfect. And I loved the conversation between them.

And the snowflakes metaphor! Can't forget that!

When will we be seeing your other fic up here? Congrats on getting on SQ!

I really enjoyed this story. I think a lot have people have trouble with James/Lily fics (myself included) and their characterization, but I think you've done the best job I've seen. Great work!

Reviewer: shannonDate: 2003-12-03
Reviewid: 61651Chapter: 1
beautiful. I love James/Lily and this was a superb story of what might've happened seventh year, supporting canon perfectly and characterization.

I read in the forums in a discussion about writing romance that the best kinds at the kinds that make you giggle. This is definately one of the best kinds. I love the ending.

I hope you write more soon.

I love it so far! I think you captured a young Lily excellently, and James was great. The writing flows well and the tone is nicely kept throughout and fitting for the piece. It captured me and kept me engaged. Wonderful, thanks so much for this! I can't wait to read more. 8-)
