James is wildly out-of-character, barely acting interested in Lily in some parts. In fact, James in this story is more how I would have imagined Sirius acting.
And of course Sirius is a shallow ladies man! The length of this fic is equal to several Harry Potter books combined without ever reaching a climax.

Not all sixteen-year-olds are in long term committed relationships, but in this fic, it seems odd if someone is single.
Alice has been with Frank since she was 14 in this story, aaaaand he cheats on her and she takes him back.
