Yay! jamessssssss. This is fun and you encapsualted James so brilliantly, both before and during the match. I love his determination to carry on regardless, and not even the Bludger can stop him.
JAMES POTTER BELONGS TO NATALIE
will that do? ~Carole~ (12)
Author's Response: Yes, that will do just fine, Croll. Hehehehe. Unless Gina sees it and chases us. eep! I don't know why I don't write more James. :( Thanks thanks thanks!!
Firstly, I thought your James was great - ridiculously stubborn and never one to let a team down. It was an interesting choice to not even mention Lily... I liked seeing James in his own right without his obsession with her. The other Marauders were good too, and a little bit of Quidditch always adds something to a story. Good job! :)
Author's Response: That was a personal challenge – writing a James-fic devoid of Lily. I wanted to see how it’d do, but – haha! Not sure if it was a success. ; ) That said, this fic is still special to me. Not one of my best or anything, but I wanted to tell a good James Potter story. Thanks for reading and reviewing! ~Natalie
^^ Very well writen.
Author's Response: Thanks! Your review was a pleasant surprise.
Haha yayy! What a great one-shot - I love everything about it...the way Gryffindor wins, the way you kept all the Marauders in character...I especially also love your characterization of James - he's exactly as stubborn as I thought he would be! Nice job, and I'm sorry you have a cold *although, if it inspired you to write this, I'm less sorry, haha*
Author's Response: HEHE!
Of course you'd like how the Gryffs won. :P. Thank you for saying I kept the Marauders IC, because I feel like there's that line between keeping them IC, and making them Cliche, and I'm glad to hear I didn't cross it. I had that cold . :( It was terrible.
[hugs and love]
Yay! There is another story!
I really love this story. I love the characterization and the Quidditch. They are both very good. All of the Marauders are great.
This was so much fun to read. This one shot wasn't very long, but I felt like I was reading a longer story, which is good. This is a really good James story. : )
Author's Response: Hey, 'sa!
YAY! It got validated. I really needed to write James WITHOUT Lily in the vicinity. And thanks for saying I got the Marauders right, coz I'm never too sure about those guys. Plus, this fic helped me get over the fear of writing Quidditch.
Thanks for the review!
