I'm impressed. You are very good at imitating Snicket's writing style. Update soon.
This was such a good chapter! I'm impressed with this parody. It was clear you put a lot of thought into this. :)
As you and me well know, being proud of something means that you take pride in the thing that you are proud of. I chuckled when I read this. I've read a couple of Lemony Snicket's books and you've captured his tone perfectly. :) As you probably know, Cheerios is a breakfast cereal that is shaped ias a circle and can hurt very much if thrown at someone. Another chucklicious line. I don't think I've ever been hurt by a Cheerio though... Does that mean I'm just lucky? *prepares to duck when Cheerios are around* Side-view mirrors should actually be called “mirrors that show you what is behind you” because that is what they do. Once again, I'm laughing. I'm thinking, What a great name for the mirrors on the side of the car! The cat remained stationary. The word “stationary” here means “ignoring Mr. Dursley and staying on the corner of Privet Drive.” Laughing, laughing, laughing. This has been a great parody. I think Semony Lnicket should parody *ahem* other chapters as well.They were the Dursley’s, and wanted nothing to do with anything unusual. Here, I don't think you need the apostrophe. It would just be plural. Same for later usage of apostrophes, lol. (I happen to like typing the word, apostrophes. Weird, I know.) Is this particular case, it is a person that the Dursley’s did not want to be involved with. I think you intended to write "in" instead of "is."
This is a great chapter. I quite liked it and I thought you did a great job of incorporating Lemony Snicket's voice into it. I hope you'll continue to do something similar since you clearly have a knack for it. You also have very few errors, which is nice because it makes it easy to read what you have written.I laughed a lot while reading this. It also helps that Steve Martin was singing "King Tut" while I read this. Funny song really. Funny chapter as well. Good job. :)
Author's Response: Few errors?? WOOT! That's weird...anyway, thanks for the great review! It really made my day. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm trying to rewrite another chapter in the CoS, but they are extremely time-consuming and I have to be very careful about putting things in the right place and keeping canon info straight. And....I'll work on those apostraphes (sp?). ;) Thanks. :)
This was so good! I loved the way you used Lemony Snicket's narrative (if thats how it's spelled) with the Harry Potter stories! I loved that bit about the motercycle and how tall it is... LOL! 10/10! If you have spare time, please R&R my story The Expulsion (under Ron/Hermione). This story was excellent and I am looking forward to later chapters! Yay!
This was so excellent. I love how you blend the two author's writing styles together. I love both authors. As I read, it seemed like I was reading the first book all over again, but then there were the bits Snickets would add in his stories. I cannot begin to explain how much I enjoyed this. The only nitpicky thing I was rather bored with was the definition of words. There were beginning to get annoying. Other than that, I loved everything else, and I hope you continue with this and update soon!
Author's Response: Oh no! Another "update soon" person! If you look down, it says I'm a slow writer, which I am, so you might have to wait longer for teh next chapter than you would with otehr authors. As for the definition thing, I wasn't really sure how many to put in. At times I threw them in to look more like his style when it seemed I was drifting away from it. I'll work on that. Thanks for the review! :)
Really amazing story, mixing Rowling and Snicket was a brilliant idea, it came out as something truly unique!...its nice to see that there are other people on this site obsessive about both series (btw, anone know when the next book in 'Unfortunate Events' comes out...there IS going to be a next book, isn't there?? ::has minor emotional breakdown::)...how far are you planning to take this story?...are you planning on rewriting every chapter of every book?...if you could, answer in an authors note or an authors responce...well, update soon! ~Nicole
Author's Response: I was planning to rewrite every chapter, but then I decided that would be a pain in the butt. So I'm skipping some parts, like "The Vanishing Glass" chapter. And like I stated below, I'm the slowest writer ever...*can hear the sharpening of spears of the angry mob*
Ohhhh! That was brilliant! That was very good. I love how you changed the writting style... I never realized how much time Lemony Snicket wastes explaining the meaning of different word and word phrases... Great job here. I didn't catch any grammar mistakes, but then again, I don't really have a good eye for things like that. Keep that up! I want to see your next chapter soon! 9/10
Author's Response: *sobs* An angry mob is going to come after me wanting an update. I'm the slowest writer ever. No, really, I am. Thanks for the review, though.
im confused was this supposed 2 be like the first book but diferrent? and Lemony snicket doent he write a seires of unfortunate events? w/e 4get it im always like this. *~*Bubblez*~*or*~*Jenni*~* p.s. great story!!!!
I must stand and applaud you for this. It was truly enjoyable, the hardest I've laughed while reading fan-fiction. I am a new Lemony Snicket fan, and I think you have his style of both writing and humor down pat. It was truly enjoyable, and I hope you go a very long way with it, because I am looking very much forward to reading this the whole way through - a phrase which here means "if I knew where you lived, I would be outside tapping your bedroom window at this very moment to make sure you were planning on updating quite soon". On a negative note, you had a lot of mistakes. Mispellings, missed words, added words, etc; I could read it fine, at least, but it did distract from the reading. ::sigh:: I would have been ready to give you a perfect 10 otherwise; but I'll hand you a nine. Keep up the great work, and keep an eye out for your errors.
Author's Response: You should have seen it before. ;) I had someone else read through it and correct a lot of spelling and grammer errors, so it was worse. I guess that's what I get for typing this up at 1:00 in the morning...;)
^-^ I'm impressed. You mimicked Lemony Snicket's style very well. For some reason, my favorite line is, "...and like most men who are big and beefy, Vernon had no neck." No clue why, though...
OMG this is really good! You are now on my favorite authors list because you are a wonderful writer and your stories ROCK! I found a couple of typos but other than that it's good. You have the writing style of Lemony Snicket down very well. Good job! I look forward to the next chapters. :)
