I'd really love to see an update to this.
I really, really, REALLY want to know why Lily doesn't like Hermione - all she's doing is making me want to rip her red hair out - by the roots - and then feed it to her....

this is a great story, and i felt that the handover between authors was fairly seamless (something that is very hard to do). i don't like what you're doing to lily here, though. i'm really hoping that there's some kind of hex or curse on her, because slapping your child is a big deal. the fact that he was abused previously makes it an even bigger deal. i think it would be appropriate for her to talk seriously with hermione and even for her to talk to harry about her concerns. i think it would even be appropriate for them to argue about it. i don't like where you're taking the character, though.

I wasn't going to comment on this chapter, but I feel that I must. Most people (fan fiction writers) have always thought/written that Lily was a much better woman than you've portrayed in this chapter. I, however, tend to agree that Petunia and Harry were exhibiting an Evans trait. Harry's angst driven year (OOTP) proved he had a temper and we know that Petunia had one, although I liked to think that was partly Vernon's fault. Lily has been shown through Snape's pensieve memories to have a temper, but against her own son, that soon, might be a bit of a stretch. I can see the fine line of a mother's jealousy over a girl about to replace his mother, so I say, well written and spot on.

I'm surprised I haven't read this excellent piece before. It has a few elements of another story I've read in that James and Lily survived and were told Harry had died, but I really like this version. Very few spelling errors, so that's always a plus and it's well written and logical. The only item I could find fault with was Remus curling up with Harry as a werewolf. That shouldn't work, even with wolfsbane according to canon. A minor point though, so not really a criticism.

Great story, lots of angst. It's great to see a story were Lily isn't all goodness and light but a normal person with petty faults. Is this story going to continue? Like to see Harry having other girls chasing him such as some Slytherins.

So, any word on updates for this one? I am greatly enjoying it, as this is not a plot I've seen elsewhere, and for one I can't wait to see more.

It's a shame that you've gotten no further with this story. I began reading it today and would not walk away from the computer until I was done. It's quite engaging and I would love to see more on it.
I've been reading quite a few of your stories in the last few days as my guy has introduced me to you and I agree with his assessment that you are a fantastic read. I hope to read more.

I am so hooked on this story, I have not checked on when you posted or updated after you took over the story, I hope that you have plans to complete it. It is having more depth for the individuals with a wider range of emotions. Keep the posting coming.

I've just finished reading all of 'Wishful Thinking', and I must say that it's one of the more original fanfiction plots that I've seen in quite some time. I do hope that, at some point, the muse will climb on your back and encourage you to write more in this most interesting story. Particular kudos on dealing with the issue of the 'ghosts' during the brother wand incident in the graveyard at the end of the TriWiz--the 'ghost of a ghost' explanation works as well as anything. Also, to have Harry realize that his parents aren't saints shows remarkable maturity on his part. One suggestion: Harry may need to remind his parents (especially Lilly) that he is a Family Head in his own right, and has his own rank and responsibilities (not to mention fortune). Oh, that would be an UGLY scene...but you've shown that you can do well at writing ugly scenes, and they do drive the story forward most forcefully.
I truly enjoyed the story thus far and, once again, hope to be seeing more of it in future.

Just got caught up on this story and I've really enjoyed it so far. I don't know if you have any plans to continue it, but if you don't, I don't suppose you'd be willing to let me know what's up with people losing their minds around Harry? Too many people for it not to be a pattern of some kind.

Are you going to finish this story? It's to good to just leave it unfinished.

I enjoyed this a lot. The plot is very interesting and I am very curious about what is driving Lily in the last few chapters. The slow build up towards a relationship instead of just jumping into bed is great and much more believable. Thank you for sharing.

I can't wait to find out what is wrong with Lily, But I also wanted to ask a question. A while back you had a story posted where Harry's parents didn't die and Harry was in multiple relationships first with Ginny and Hermione and later on with Cho and Angelina, and eventually with Bellatrix after she was forced to rape him during the tri-wizard tournament, and was pregnant with his child. And the last chapter that I remember is Harry being whipped by Umbridge and filch. And I wanted to know if you will ever repost that story?

Just breezed through this story again - I hope you come back to it sometime soon. I'd dearly love to see what converted Lily to a shade of Petunia. I'm betting on maternal jealousy myself - she's just gotten Harry back and doesn't want to share him with a girlfriend so soon, but we shall see what we see.

did you abandon wishful thinking ?
because I really like this story and i hope to read the next chapter sometimes.
I really want to know the way it will continue between harry and lilly!
I hope that harry will stick to the way he treat hermione and that we may see more of the other couples like R/L, G/N and maybe Susan with somebody.
and Tonks and remus. I hope to see more of Remus in the next chapters because I like the father figure he is and I think that he may not let lilly act the way she is when he knows maybe Lily can get pregnant and stop bothering Harry and Remus can become is father of hearth ??
Or James can find a cure for the sterelity of the werewolf and tonks can have kids and their blood will cure Remus because they have the lycantrophy in their blood but since they are metamorphs they can counteract the curse and cure Remus
And maybe while hermione's parents are back and between hermione and lilly it is not good, they may ask Harry to go with their daughrt to beauxbaton to not be teach by her. and harry will choose Hermione, but because all their friends are in hogwarts and lilly is pregnant, James decides to leave hogwarts and let harry stay there.
I'll stop that here because I think you have already the story plan and it will make you laught;
good luck for next chapter
