Very hot, funny and sweet. You really captured them here in a great way. I love the attitude you gave Lily about deciding to just wait and see if she was pregnant. Amazing.

Thanks so much! :)

I tend to be a bit nervous addressing Lily's pregnancy. I mean, she's so young, and they're at war. I can't imagine being happy about being pregnant at such a time. But I'm not Lily.

So glad you liked this!

*g* One of my beta readers told me that "hot" isn't really something a British man would say, but we didn't have the heart to James's verses.

Thanks! :)

That was hot and wonderful- can never get too much Lily/James smut. and I like the substance- and that it was sort of a mistake- but not- of Lily getting pregnant. Very cute.

Oh, YAY. This was hot and sweet and adorable...and the poetry was priceless. :)

(Also? The "I don't like to write, I like to have written"? Best quote ever. Where did you get it? I saw it in a Steven Deitz play but he might have been quoting too...)

I got the icon from skellorg (I think she posted it at obsessiveicons). I don't know who first said it, but I love it.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the fic! Thank you so much! :)

Oh, fabulous. Hot, and sweet, and...guh. So wonderful.

I love their dynamic, the way you write them.

And also? James's "poetry"? *shakes head* Oh, the dear boy. It was great...in an awful sort of way. Heh.

You know, I've always wondered why James and Lily had a child in the middle of the war, barely out of school -- this answers that well and is hot to boot.

"All these demands," James said when she lifted her hand. "Lick me. Stop composing poetry—"

Heee. Excellent.

Thanks so much!

I used to wonder that same thing - which is one of the reasons I haven't written much J/L, despite the fact that I like the ship. It's hard to reason out. Why not wait? What were they thinking?

I'm so glad you liked this. :)

That was perfect.

And I have an unusual love for James' poetry, right there.

This was amazing. Really, really. My english is not good enough to qualify how much I liked your fanfic.

I loved James, Lily, the sex part, the romance part, and the way these two aspects were put together perfectly.

Loved it. Fully ♥
