The Perfect Rain by MayItBe [Mid Teens]
[Reviews - 5]

We all know what happens to James and Lily in the end, but what about the beginning? Starting in the end of their seventh year, up until that fateful Halloween night. Follow James and Lily, along with the rest of the marauder’s battling N.E.W.T.’s, jobs, tests, and He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Some mild swearing, and there will be a very mild scene of a sexual nature later on.

Very nice, I enjoyed this as well and I'm very interested to see what will happen next.  Please disregard my note about the italics in my last review as you seem to have that worked out in this chapter.

Keep writing...

Hello.  I enjoyed your first chapter.  However, I thought it was a little on the short side. You do seem to write well though.  Your second chapter, which seems to be waiting for validation, appears to be quite a bit longer so hopefully it is a sign of things to come.

While I have never read any HG/RL before, this seems to be as good a place as any to start and I am looking forward to seeing what direction you take the story.

Thanks for sharing with us, and keep writing.... 



Author's Response: This was the shortest chapter of the seven I have written, the shortest after that is around 2600, the longest over 5000. I'm delighted to be your first HG/RL, and whilst I know its not everyones cup of tea, I'm hoping to at least take people on a convincing journey. I hope you keep reading and enjoy it :)

Michelle Matthews has been the brunt of tormenting and teasing from the Marauders...except by Remus. But what happens when the teasing and tormenting go TOO far?

Very nicely done.  Your writing is very crisp and clean, plus your descriptions are vivid without being overly flowery.  I truly enjoyed it.

Just one small thing that I noticed.  It looks like you may have misplaced an HTML code in the following:

“Would you mind if Severus joined us?” Michelle whispered to Remus leaning forward slightly. Remus looked a little startled and shocked that she had asked that, but he shook his head nonetheless. “Severus,” Michelle called. “Come and sit here with us.”S

The 'S' is followed by 'everus' at the beginning of the next paragraph. 

While I admit that I don't really read marauder era fic's, the story name caught my attention(for obvious reasons).  I'm glad it did too as I really enjoyed this and look forward to more.

Thanks for sharing...

Pansy's reality is one of war and chosen imprisonment at Malfoy Mansion. However, at night she allows herself to steal a moment of peace, a moment of pleasure, a moment of freedom, fantasy and love. Pansy/Ginny femslash erotica.

Very nicely done.  Your descriptions were clear and vivid, without being overly flowerly. I found the ending to be especially poignant.  Thanks for sharing.

Wow. That was very REAL, and most impressive.  If you can do something as impressive as this with a minor character like Mrs. Figg, I'd love to see what you can do with the main ones.

Keep writing, and thanks for sharing



Author's Response: Thanks:)

Very nice.  I am very interested to see where this is going.  I thought that Molly paying a caterer (once, let alone twice) was a bit OOC for her.  For one thing, the Weasley's aren't exactly rich, and I just can't imagine Molly giving up control of her kitchen.  Also, it may just be me, but I usually like my chaptered stories a little longer than this, as it gives me more time to immerse myself in the chapter.  On the whole though, very nicely done and I'm looking forward to more.

Thanks for sharing and keep writing... 




Chapter 1: Peace and Chaos
Ron's Gauntlet by Oppungo [All Ages]

When Ron receives a strange owl instructing him to take part in a mysterious maze, promising him treasure, excitement and glory he can't resist but to find out more. What could be better than having his name go down in the history books? Only not having his death recorded alongside it...

Hi.  I enjoyed this quite a bit.  Between you and me, I have a bit of a soft spot for Ron when he isn't written like a jerk.  Its been a while since my last Ron fix so thanks for that.  The only part that I found a bit...off was the ending.  It just sort of ended, without any real resolution (where did this maze come from, who sent the note, how did the 3 of them get out of there).  Beyond that it was very nice.

Thanks for sharing and keep writing



Author's Response:

Thank you! I know - Ron's one of my favourite characters, but he isn't always portrayed very well. I've got several other stories up which I'd love for you to take a look at if you have the time. Well, this whole thing was a challenge on MNFF, where we were sent prompts - only I didn't finish mine in time, and so I had to end it without the last prompt, so to speak. Basically all that happened was what was said in the end - that Harry and Hermione followed Ron into the maze, took a wrong turning, but managed to find him by going the other way, and took him up to the Hospital Wing. They don't know who the letter came from - they're still investigating ;-) Thanks for reviewing!
