|And now *this* is the story which delighted me. Ironically, I think I didn't end up leaving that review because I was stuck for what to say about it, there was so much I did like. So, in no particular order, I'll say...|
I love the comraderie of the four mates in the opening, their alternate humor, seriousness, and ease. These bits, especially:
Repeat ad nauseam
"You waited six and a half years before she'd even talk to you, and now you can't wait thirteen more days?"
"Tonight? Now?" James asked in a panicky voice. "Get stuffed! No way. I'm not going tonight. I-I'm not ready."
And later on, I love the fun that gets poked at Vernon, James's whispered side conversations with Lily... The gaff about a woman's touch just kills me... And then of course, there's that wonderful proposal which manages to be funny and romantic and sweet all at once. The dialog is wonderful throughout.
Thanks for the fun L/J story! There are so few truly good ones.

|*Squees* This was so, so wonderfully romantic. I haven't read any J/L-focused fics before (that I remember at the moment), and now I might have to seek some out soon. :-) I love James's cocky sense of humor. (Honestly, referring to your future father-in-law as an "old codger" right there in front of his wife and with him in the next room. What brazen cheekiness, even if he's claiming to just be repeating what Mr. Evans told him.) That made it even funnier to see the distracted, anxious state he was in at the beginning of this fic. His friends' reaction to said state perfectly reminded us how unlike James this nervousness was. |
I had to stifle an urge to hate Peter because of what he'd do in the future, but this is before he turned to the Dark Side (quick reference to Luke watching Star Wars Episode IV tonight ). Seeing the Marauders together like this makes one realize anew how awful and unforgivable it was for Peter to sell the Potters out to Voldemort. THEY WERE HIS FRIENDS! THEY WOULD NEVER HAVE TURNED ON HIM, DAMNIT! (Sorry had to get that out.)
Anyway, the way you write them, he and Lily complement each other so well, and I can also see them just adoring Ginny as the perfect match for Harry. (I can picture some wonderful blended family gatherings at the Burrow, too. They would have gotten a kick out of all that good-natured chaos, especially if they saw Fred & George in action.) I enjoyed that you had Mr. and Mrs. Evans approving of James (and seeming to greatly prefer him over Petunia's choice for a mate).
It was great that you ended the story with Remus telling Harry this story. The Pensieve was also an excellent touch, and the icing on the cake was Harry taking the ring and heading to the Burrow. But, honestly, only Harry would worry about what he needed to remember to make a good impression on Ginny's parents. He could show up there drunk and disheveled, and they'd still welcome him with open arms.
Did anyone end up writing either of the other two options from this challenge?
Fantastic job, as always, Julie! Your work sets a high standard for writing.

|Wow, this is fantastic!!!|
I love how you portrayed James and Lily, and the other characters were excellent, too (Vernon - lol!). I love the idea of Remus and Harry having this conversation... unfortunatley, it wasn't to be. *Sob, sob*
Thank you for writing!

|Wow - I loved this. I almost never read James/Lily fics, but I was looking for something to read and since I like everything else you have written I thought I'd give it is try. Absolutely lovely. I enjoyed every minute, but the best part was the ending. I love to think that Remus and Sirius were able to pass on some good stories to Harry about his parents. And the way Harry pocketed the ring and took off was priceless. Now I need to go read the sequel!|

|This was very well done. Thank you so much for writing it. I love the end when Harry takes the ring and tells Remus what he had said to James and that Harry was applying it to himself. Couldn't have surprised Remus more. I look forward to the next chapter. And later to Ginny's reaction. p|

I love how suportive Mr. Evens was.
The way Harry went staight off to prose to Ginny was sweet too.

|Oh, thanks so much for the review. Mr Evans is very loosely based on my own father. |

|There are stories in the world that you read, and then forget about. Some are boring. Some make you cry. And some just make you squeal. |
This made me cry, squeal, laugh, and scream. I loved it! Thank you for writing this, it's perfect! Exactly how I pictured everyone. This is amazing, great job!
