SO CUTE!!!! The wittiness and character in their dialogue is absolute perfection. Cute and fluffy, but with admirable originality that L/J fics lack. Write more!!! ;)

You are superb. I'll leave it at that.

This is probably the most superb L/J oneshot I've ever read so far. It's nothing short of brilliant - you captured Lily and James' blooming relationship so perfectly, and it didn't even have to end up with the two of them actually snogging. At first I was rather doubtful whether the concept of a James learning how to dance and a Lily coming to his rescue would actually work, but apparently you are one miracle-worker, and I congratulate you for it. I love the way your characters interacted with such a level of sincerity not often present in other fics, and without having to compromise the wit and humor of the situation. Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of work that made me smile, giggle, and laugh outright. :)

Ah, this was great fun. You've captured James rather well as a teenage dork with a girl but an unending well of hope. I like your Lily too as a girl who is finally willing to see some of the good things about Potter as well as his attractiveness.

Awwwwwwwwh, I like ittt.
I was super excited to see an update from you, Bee, but I was kinda dissapointed when I figured out that it wasn't for Commentarius. Update that story soon, will yah?

For years, really years, i've been searching for a reasonably believable J/L fanfiction and now I've found it (and it's just one-shot). Seriously, this was the BEST J/L story i've read so far. The way you wrote both of them talking to each other was exactly what I always wanted and imagined them to be like but was never capable of writing myself. It was smart, funny and easygoing and not at all cliché.
You started with them already being friends (or at least flirting) going to being that something more that we always wonder how did it really happened. This James was not a prat and this Lily was intelligent and sweet and the Lily Evans i've met. In my humble opinion I have the pleasure of congratulating you for this amazing writing.

I loved this fic! Your portrayal of Lily and James is very good, and it really fits the image of them that I have in my mind. It was funny, cute and interesting...I'd like to know how it turns out. Poor James, how Lily makes him suffer! Thanks for sharing this fic!

Really cute one shot, fantastic chemistry, and Lily is really a complex character from James' perspective; I can understand more where his fascination comes from when it's his PoV rather than hers. However underline that it's a one shot - Commentarius please!!

"I'm in the middle of something, Evans," he drawled, relieved to find his voice calm and jaunty once more. "Can you come back to try to seduce me later? Rain check, all right?" - i love the witty banter they torture each other with. it's so natural between them. i loved it.
for some reason... whenever i just happen to check on this site for any good updates, you've updated. not that i'm complaining... it's actually kind of cool. i love your style and you're stories. they make me laugh. :)
i really loved this one - one of my favorites. james was so cute learning to dance... this thoughts on lily were awesome and the tension was enough to give me somersaults.
anyway.... i really loved it.
keep writing - i always enjoy your work.

That was absolutely brilliant! My goodness, I loved it to death! Great story, great writing, great technique:D This was beyond fun. I adore the plot and how they each flirt, it really fits both personalities of how I imagine the two. You don't make James overly annoying to the point of having no likeable personality and same with Lily, she wasn't the stuck up, completely stubborn mean person but also very likeable. Absolutely wonderful. You are a very talented writer! I love the rest of your stories as well

You write James and Lily better than anyone. Um, ever.

That was sooo good! I didn't even know it was you that wrote it until after I was done. lol Now I'm going to read it again!

Aww, that was so cute! And the great thing is, my boyfriend and I are taking ballroom dance classes together this summer, and since I have a little bit of experience, I'm betting it'll end up being a little bit like this...or at least I hope so! Keep up the excellent work, Bee, and I can't wait to see chapter 19!

Ooh, that was delicious! I think it was probably my favourite of your one-shots, really, despite the fact that there's no climactic resolution (read: kiss) at the end. I rather liked that you left it just a little bit open, and their exchanges (as always) were so very, very Lily and James. Much as I love Commentarius, these James' PoV pieces are tremendous (mostly because I adore your James). You write both of the characters so well. One line that absolutely struck me was: "She didn't object. He tried not to hope." It seems to encapsulate the growing change in their relationship so well; the uncertainty, the hope. Wonderful, wonderful job as always, Bee!

Awww, well wasn't that just the cutest thing. It's interesting to read your L/J fanfiction that isn't in Lily's POV. Great job!

It's so nice to see James' point of view. And I love Lily here! Flirtatious, cool, so different from Commentarius Lily, although I do love both of them.
Aww, why are there so little men like James left in the world?
Written by DOJ on chapter #1.(April 20th 2009, 1am)
This was just what I needed as a study break (really, when are research papers going to learn to write themselves?). I always love your work and this was no exception. It was great to see something from James' point of view - to see him resigned, frustrated, and hopeful but not as obsessive and pathetic as he's often written. And it was great to see a transition piece - one that didn't end with them admitting their undying love for one another and snogging in the hallway. I like seeing them slowly redefining their relationship =)
All in all, nice work!

This was WONDERFUL!
i loved how it was unique in every way and i loved all the sexual tension, and the ending was really clever.
i think i've read this before.
was it on fanfiction possibly?
keep up the excellent work. i love it!
