    Latest chapter was vaguely depressing but looks like Lily will stop moping around now.

    The author outright admits in the ch1 closing note that's she's never seen or read Naruto and all her knowledge of the show comes from fanfiction.

    Generally I would stop reading such a story on principle, yet... why does it have to be so much fun to read? :rolleyes:

    That dip into the Naruto-verse was fun. Looking forward to when Lily gets killed and then just gets better.

    I'd give this fic 4/5. Great concept and very engaging at the start. Past about chapter 30 it starts to drag a bit, which is a common issue with longer fanfics (especially humor).

    Finally an update, with chapter 37:


    I really enjoyed her approach at Quidditch, though the author bends the rules a bit. I also liked Lily's musing about the Hermione-Problem. In a way, this half-year old sidefic expands the chapter and Lily's thoughts: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11499939/1/Merrily-We-Roll-Along

    Oh - and we learn how far the author is following canon:

    The Chamber of Secret is opened.

    Always a good laugh, but with enough plot to make it highly interesting.

    As my first vote on the site, I must give this a 5/5. Why? Because it meets my requirements for the 4/5, namely that "I genuinely enjoy reading this", and that the story has a tone to it, one that clearly identifies the story. The absurdity and surrealism of the story is what holds it all together, and I love the story for that.
