Author: dancinggoldfishChallenge: #12 - While patrolling the school, Head Boy James and Head Girl Lily wind up being locked in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom all night long with an uncooperative Myrtle.Title: One Long NightSummary: James and Lily are stuck with each other due to a series of mistakes while they're patrolling. Lily's within an inch of killing James, James is finding himself rethinking his attraction to the redhead, but somehow, they survive it, and maybe even become friends?Warning: Language, graphic threatsWord Count: 4189Rating: Teen/MatureNotes: Written a bit hastily, but looked over thoroughly. Sorry about the delay in getting it in!
This was excellent, especially the ending. Everyone would be betting over Lily and James getting together. Keep up the wonderful work, and if you ever need a beta, let me know.
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it so much - and you might want to be careful about that beta offer, you might just find yourself being taken up on that ;p
I wouldn't mind whatsoever. I'd love to be able to read the chapters before everyone else - and plus, grammar errors really bother me. Don't know why, they just do.
How lovely! Anything specific that you prefer - ships, time periods, fandoms, characters, genres, ratings...?
Well, any rating is okay with me. I generally read James/Lily, Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny, and Remus/Tonks stories, but if you have something else you want me to beta, just ask. I think that's about it... if you have something that you're not sure of, just email me asking. firstname.lastname@example.orgI look forward to reading your stories!
Oh, quite fabulous! I'll definitely keep you in mind the next time I need a beta ;pI don't have anything new written just yet, but I do have a ton of stuff posted over at brightest_light that I urge you to check out :D
I'll make sure to do so! Thanks for keeping me in mind.
Lovely! Actually, if you'd be willing, would you like to beta this before I put it up on brightest_light?
I just want to make sure - you want me to beta THIS story? If you say yes, I'd love to.
Yes, THIS story. It wasn't beta-ed because I finished it late, and I would like to get it beta-ed (because I've already caught a couple of my mistakes).Love the icon, by the way :D
Okay, I've beta'd the story - you did a really nice job, I didn't find too many errors. How would you like me to get the edited copy to you?'Also, thanks for the comment about the icon - it's one of my favorites.
Whoa, good thing I check my inbox ;p Um, why don't you email it to me? My email is email@example.com.It is a very lovely icon :D
Okay, I emailed you the beta'd version of the story. I hope everything's okay and that I didn't miss anything. If you have any questions or need me to beta something else, just email me. Also, if you want to chat, I'd like that too!
I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but what I really loved was the brief appearances of Sirius and Remus. I thought the whole thing was very well written, but for some reason the other tw Marauders, particularly Remus, struck me.Good work!
Now why on earth would I take that the wrong way? I always love to hear that the other Maruaders were well done, and striking, especially since I don't feel entirely comfortable with their characters yet and are still working them out :DI'm glad you liked it!
Brilliant. I loved it!
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it so much :D
I really loved this. I love one-shots, as I don't have to (impatiently) wait for chapters and such. ^^ Lovely work. LilyxJames owns. As do you.It was... realistic. Most aren't. That's why I love it so.Keep it up!
Thank you! *blushes* Wow, thank you! I worked hard to make it realistic and such, so I'm glad to know it was appreciated. And if you like Lily/James (as you obviously do ;p), I have some more posted over at brightest_light. There is at least one other one shot, plus a chapter fic.Thank you! :D
Consider them read. =)
beautifuly written. i loved it, it was safe and not over the top yet interesting and juicy ! :D I simply loved it.
I think I'm a little bit late, but still... Even after years I think this is beautiful. People suddenly started hating on James after Deathly Hallow's conclusion, but I still think he's one of the best characters of Harry Potter, and he wasn't really portrayed on the books! And you did it perfectly. Congrats!
