Here, she is fierce and snarky and doesn't need NO man to make her interesting. I have no better words than that. Feb 07, Adi rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this, since I read a few other chapters out of order—shame on me , but I remember thinking the socks scene was cute. Get A Copy. James is less arrogant and more nervous-wreck, Peter is sweet and a little air-headed, Remus is bookish and self-conscious, Sirius is brash and impulsive, and Lily is fierce and a little wicked. Fifty-seven dung-bombs, one great operative mission, and five documented pranks.
And, dang, I am glad that I did. I think Remus was the narrator more often than anybody else, and I really liked him, but James, Sirius and even Peter were all fun. I don't know how closely they resemble the characters in the actual books, but just as far as this work goes, they were great.
The authors had fleshed them out fantastically and gave them their own voices really well. There was one scene view spoiler [where they were telling ghost stories in the shrieking shack hide spoiler ] that was entirely dialogue between the four of them and no extra words clarifying who was saying what, yet I always felt like I could tell who was who and I'm always impressed by authors who can do that. There was a myriad of literary allusions especially the section with Remus' dreams, which killed me I was laughing so hard which were really wonderful.
Although there is one point where Sirius says "May the force be with you" even though it took place in '76 and Stars Wars came out in ' Just in general, the writing was fantastic, making me laugh so much, usually, but also strong emotions in there. The plot, for most of the book was not important, it was just around to keep the angsting and mischiefing in order. But then view spoiler [it suddenly took a rather abrupt turn towards the not fun and kinda continued on for the rest.
I mean, I suppose that's where the backstory provided by the actual series picks up, but as far as this being it's own story it just seemed to end with so many things hanging and unsettled. Which I, selfishly don't like, thus the rating. They - at least in this - are fantastic.
I love them so much. Especially Remus.
The them part of it took forever and a day to come to a head, but even before it was explicit, the two of them were adorable together and I loved them. Don't read this unless you Because you will do all of the above, and so much more. I started reading SBP when it was still on Livejournal, when we made xpx userpics of our favourite quotes and there were many , Don't read this unless you I started reading SBP when it was still on Livejournal, when we made xpx userpics of our favourite quotes and there were many , and before there was an audiobook SBP.
I have only just finished it. I didn't want it to end, you see. I remember when the updates were months and month apart. I remember when the final updates were posted and there was a collective gasp and denial.
I then prompted proceeded to ignore it for months Because it's over now, and there will never be more Shoebox to read. It will not be there, lurking like mistletoe, waiting to wrap around me and hold me hostage. But that's okay. I'm over the Book Crisis now, and the world spins on. It was all worth it, in the end. With the foreshadowing and all. And it ended perfectly, and tragically, and sympathetically. View 1 comment.

Honestly this is more canon to me than any of the crap JKR has added to the universe after the fact and is pretty much the sole reason why I NEVER want her to write a Marauders-era book - because it can never hold a candle to this.
If I tried to sit here quoting and talking about all the g I know what you're thinking - "fanfiction isn't a real book! If I tried to sit here quoting and talking about all the great bits in this I would be here all day, but I just want to say that I love every single person's characterization in this.
Poor Remus hide spoiler ] Also if you don't want to read it because it's unfinished, I would honestly still recommend it. There are 26 chapters and chapter 24 is actually a pretty good 'stopping point' as far as it being a complete story [with them leaving Hogwarts] at that point. There are still some cute moments in the last two chapters but if you just wanted a story that feels 'complete' then the last two chapters definitely don't fit that well.
Jun 25, Midu Hadi rated it really liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It was like having the HP days back for sometime; it was bittersweet because I knew how things would end.
It was also perfect because that is exactly how the Marauders would have behaved. Peter with his insecurities and hero-worship, Remus with his attempts at keeping the rest in line while Sirius who just bowled everyone over with his personality and charm.
Then there was James, as spoiled as Snape said he'd be and pathetically after Lily. The fanfic just reemphasized the fact that McGonagall r It was like having the HP days back for sometime; it was bittersweet because I knew how things would end.
The fanfic just reemphasized the fact that McGonagall rocks and made me like Dumbledore a bit more after all the idiotic things he started doing in the last HP books.
I absolutely loved two things: I never once missed Harry and the gang Lupin and Sirius go together unbelievably well! Thank you authors for this piece. Sep 14, Inga rated it it was amazing. Ugh, my feelings. Jun 18, Laura rated it it was amazing. Really enjoyed this fanfic! General spoilers, nothing too specific. I thought the collection of letters were hilarious, and a great way to have the characters be together while being actually apart and also a great way to demonstrate their past relationship and current connection to each other.
Plus, I think it was fabulous to show how Sirius and Remus were on paper versus how they were when together in person. Yes, this is certainly a slow build, as stated the des Really enjoyed this fanfic!
Yes, this is certainly a slow build, as stated the description I read before I started, but I liked that because it really gave an impression of how their friendship was and what was going on in both of their lives--it was a scope of this time, for both of them, and we as the reader got to experience a lot of prelude before Act 1, which was wonderful for me! This fanfic also made me see why people love the Marauders so much.
I always thought they were cool and of course I'd read anything JKR would write, but I wasn't desperate for their adventures or to find out more about them, not really.
But this was just a taste of all the alluded-to exploits and a sample of how they were together and of their unique personalities. Loved it, want more! That being said, the author s?
He was the least discussed character and was the butt of the joke and often said stupid things. Yes, there were moments where he was part of the gang and had not-terrible lines, but I don't recall even a single instance of him being portrayed well: I know there wasn't a whole lot of cannon to base his actions and character on, but this book was like a trio with a random hanger-on who was only allowed in because he was in the cannon.
Finally, the actual physical relationship between Sirius and Remus was also fantastic, as it felt so real! That conversation about making out despite being sick, and snot and all that, SO PERFECT and true to what would be happening during this secret, new and exciting teenage relationship!
I thought the author did a great job of putting in just enough to be tantalizing and titillating, but also to have it be cute and romantic and not too explicit.
Aug 18, Josephine biblioseph rated it really liked it. But I think it's best to go in knowing that this story ends abruptly: I'm sorry to link off-site, I know how annoying that is, believe me. But I'm not yet comfortable knowing that all my reviews are backed up to the Amazon Cloud Server. Hopefully I'll get over it soon.
Aug 24, Lena Barsky rated it it was amazing Shelves: The be-all end-all of Harry Potter fanworks. Almost nothing has had an impact on collective memory and fan interpretation the way this work has. Brilliant and beautiful.
Dec 18, V. Larkin Anderson rated it it was amazing. The story is told mainly through Remus and Sirius' perspectives, and the overarching plot of the story is a romantic one between Remus and Sirius, but the story also does a great job of fleshing The Shoebox Project is a novel-length marauder-era Harry Potter fanfic co-written and illustrated by LadyJaida and Dorkorific.
The story is told mainly through Remus and Sirius' perspectives, and the overarching plot of the story is a romantic one between Remus and Sirius, but the story also does a great job of fleshing out the friendship between the marauders, the character of Peter Pettigrew, the relationship between Lily Evans and James Potter, and the effect of Voldemort's rise to power on the lives of students at Hogwarts and recent graduates from Hogwarts.
The story is alternately told through conventional third-person narrative, letters between Sirius and Remus and sometimes James over the summer, notes passed in class, and photographs and items that have supposedly been collected in the shoebox that the fic is named after. I absolutely love this fic, and can say without equivocation that it is by far the most well-written fanfiction that I have ever read. The characterization of the marauders is masterfully done, and the references to the original books are both subtle and heart-wrenching.
On top of that, this story made me cry, especially at view spoiler [James' and Sirius' reactions to the death of James' parents, who were also Sirius' adopted parents after his own parents disowned him.
Lily and James Potter's relationship is wonderfully realized in this story in a way that makes me care about them more than that the original books ever did. The scene in the bathroom not what you're thinking is especially adorable. Sirius and Remus are a wonderful mismatched pairing going through puberty and the self-realization that they have a thing for each other in a time where it would still have been stigmatized. Peter is pitiful and understandable in a way that lets you hate him even as you feel pity for him.
Plus, Lily Evans has tea with Professor McGonagall every Wednesday, which is a small detail that brings me immeasurable joy. The story is occasionally silly, especially in the first third. Sirius' spelling and punctuation are atrocious, but that's obviously on purpose.
There are, however, other errors in the text that are not on purpose; never enough to detract from the experience of the story, but enough to remind you that what you're reading is, in fact, fanfiction. If you're as enchanted as I was, you'll barely notice. The Shoebox Project will always be Harry Potter canon for me. I absolutely adore it.
Originally published on my website. Jul 22, Crystal Chill rated it it was amazing. I have no words to explain the brillance of this fic. Actually, I do. In my mind, this is canon. This is real and it happened and not even J. Rowling can tell me otherwise.
He is very childish, but also smart, and a great leader. His obsession with Lily is partially unsettling and insanely cute. I could go on and on about James here, but I rather just say he is definitely my favourite character. And Remus! His characterization is beautifully well-written. He's so young and insecure and awkward; somehow I can see myself in him.
He is painfully oblivious, which, I don't know about you, I think is absolutely relatable. On my second and third reads, I wanted to scream at all the things I'd missed. Also, a Surprise.

Unsurprisingly, the quality of the original recordings varied pretty widely and some of the chapters don't seem to have been edited. I further edited some chapters to eliminate obvious errors. Some of the original recordings had such high levels of static and background music in one case that I rerecorded sections.
