THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!You just saved me about a week of writing! I was just sitting at my desk, hopelessly trying to make two words rhyme when it came to me; The Nutty Imp! Besides, it was perfect for my story!
Thank you SO much for writing these and letting other authors use them!

Author's Response: Glad I could help.

Even though you said I didn't need to tell you, I thought I would anyway. I think i'll use Sorting Hat Song 2 in my story "A Different Road." Thanks for letting me use it because I wouldn't be able to come up with one as good as yours. ~Sara

Author's Response: Anytime. Thanks for telling me :)

This one's my favourite, even though I liked them all. I thought it might interest you to know that I'm going to be able to worm this song into my ff, although it will be about CHapter 120. (lol). And I might have to, ahem borrowanother of your songs. You see, my idea is... -puts protective shield around idea so it can hear all the slating it will get- is in the Marauders Era, seventh year, and Lily, her friend, an OC and the Marauder's are all sat there talking about the sorting hat songs, and then Lily stands up and recites the song they received when they got there, and then someone suggests they make up a song, (which totally won't be this one -shifty eyes), and then at the end of the chapter there's the start of a plot bunny. -hurries off to borrow another sorting hat song-

By the way, can I just say how nice I think it is of you to write these and let other, less skilled people, (namely, me) borrow them.

Author's Response: Glad you liked it :) *lol* I know this particular one is a bit out of place compared to all the serious songs, but I just couldn't help myself. ^_^ I do doubt that anyone would use this parody, but it's good for a few laughs after reading through all those serious ones. Fell free to grab as many as needed.... 120 chapters @_@ obviously you're exagerating *lol*

Author's Response: Good Luck! :)

i really like this one. i haven't read the others yet, but i will. and i maight take you up on your offer to use one of your sorting hat songs. this one would be great for my story (A Different Road) since you wrote about Slytherin first. adn in my story Harry is put into Slytherin. 10/10! ~Sara

Author's Response: Interesting You know there's a thread in the MNFF forum from someone looking for that sort of story.

^_^ Great to hear that you like the song. I'd be honoured that you use it. Good Luck!

arrgghhh it's all weird! How do you make it so there are actual spaces between lines and not all one big heap? It looks and sounds weird there, but you really have to read it in context with the story. Anyway, you're the master of sorting hat songs so I just thought I'd ask your opinion. Thanx

Author's Response: ^_^ Sorting Hat song is just about rhyming and I think you've got it down ... On the latter parts I can discern the rhymes ... the earlier there could be rhymes but it's harder for me to discern because it's clumped up ... but I think it's a good Sorting Hat like song ... the only thing wrong is the OOCness due to Slytherin preferences but you did say that it's possessed thus perfectly explains this action. :)

Hi again! I'm writing a story, and have found that I do need a song. I would take one of yours, but in my story, the hat is sort of... posessed. Here it is, I don't know if it's quite right though, there are some things that I just don't think a posessed hat would say. It starts off normal, but then the evil starts to show. Welcome students, new and old, I am the sorting hat, I'm here to find where you belong… heres the first sign somethings wrong. You foul and filthy rats then it's normal again, Of the four houses I will find The one to be your home. I'll look into your head-beware, Do not roam alone Those who travel by themselves Will find that they shan't see Their mother's eyes or father's smile Again… they'll just see me Of course, dear students, don't despair I will still sort you out, That way I'll know just where your final Ends will come about So which house will I choose for you? You'll have to wait and see There's four, I hear, but one's the best That one delivered me. I do not talk of Hufflepuff, Where weaklings hide in shame, The ones no other house will take Are Hufflepuff's to claim. Nor do I speak of Ravenclaw, Where the brainy people go, They may be smart but when danger strikes Those Ravenclaws won't show. I am not meaning Gryffindor, Where they are 'brave' and 'strong' These foolish ones will save their friends But shan't survive for long. Yes, I speak of Slytherin Where wit and cunning reign This house takes no more than the best Pure-blood values remain So those who think that they are sharp Will head for Ravenclaw The ones who feel they're 'brave' and 'bold' I'll send to Gryffindor. The pure-blood line with cunning too Will honour Slytherin Then Hufflepuff can take the rest, For no one else wants them. But all beware that I will come Wherever you may be And offer you the privilege Of joining in with me. Should you refuse then I must say You will regret your wish, For if you aren't with me then you'll Be sleeping with the fish what do you think?

Author's Response: Given that you explained that it's possessed that'll explain it's preference to Slytherin for the Sorting Hat is always impartial and treat all houses equally.

Is there a rhyming pattern? I'm not sure I can discern it -- for some parts I see it ... other I don't --- if you can't find the right rhymes I suggest www.rhymer.com ; As for those spaces:

[br] for single spaces
[p] for double spaces
replace the "[" and "]" with "<" and ">" respectively and thus your spaces

Oh and MNFF has a forum for writer's advice :) It's a great way to get advice from plenty of writers in a timely manner. I'm usually late in answering this review thread thus it's more reliable to get advice in the forum ^_^

This song is so gorgeous! I like the way the four houses stand up to Voldemort, and I think it's well written and clever. A couple of the rhymes didn't rhyme though, but other than that, great work! I hope theres more! Please!

Author's Response: *lol* thanks I'll go see if I can fix that ... that's what I get for rushing to be the first to submit in that drabble contest.

This one is definitely my favourite! Very very cute anf funny and happy! I love happy. Clever thinking, I think these first years need to know what they really are in for, and this song delivers! 10/10

Author's Response: Brutal honestly is not necessarily good *lol*

I love this one :) It's my favourite so far. Keep adding more! I don't thin I'll be needing any for my fics, but I love to read them anyway!

Author's Response: Thanks. ^_^

:):):):):) Very clever! I just wanted to thank you for reviewing my story!!! I came to R&R yours, and you had so many! I thought this looked interesting though, and it is! Well done =)

Author's Response: *L* I entered too many of those MNFF forum challenges. Thus no rhyme reason or trend on those stories that I write. :)

You're really clever, it'd take me ages to write a song that ryhmed, and it wouldn't be as good as yours! If i ever need a song, I know where to come!

Author's Response: Thanks ^_^ I'd recommend # 5 *evil grin*

Name: ginny_babe92 (Anonymous) · Date: 02/13/06 0:54 · For: Sorting Hat Song 1
This is really clever. Great Idea; Sorting hat songs would be fun to play around with! Does it take you all year to write them, like it does the sorting hat? lol very interesting!

Author's Response: *lol* I do like to play around with rhymes. fortunately it doesn't take me that long ^_^

Great song again, but I see that the Sorting Hat has lost a bit of his belligerence from the last sorting song. Maybe he had a talking to from Mrs. Sorting Hat?

I respect your Sorting Hat song writing skills very much because I've tried to write one but I can't seem to pull it off, and you say you wrote this one in 30 minutes? Very admirable.

Author's Response: I agree, he was much more fun in the last song *lol* Unfortunately Dumbledore learned that he ought not store his whiskey near that sneaky hat.

*grin* I claim the title 'Fastest rhymer' in the forum *lol*

Great poem. I loved it especially the last two stanzas. It was a good way to end. I'd never noticed it before because you put it with your other ones. Anyways I don't really have much to criticise, so...=)...keep writing sorting songs...=)

Author's Response: Thanks Mithril :) Thought that it ought to be here along with the others that I previously wrote - so as not to clutter my Author's page too much *lol* there's too much fics in there already :)

GREAT POEM! Keep writing, these are wonderful! you can also review my poem, OUT OF THIN AIR, in the first page of the poetry section.

Author's Response: ^_^

What a lovely fun idea! Thanks for sharing them! Where would I be sorted?

Author's Response: Hamstergeist! You're alive again!

Hmm.. let's see...

Thou art steadfast enough to keep returning.
Thou art brave to post in the forum knowing that Maeve's coming.
Thou art not very wise to attempt this.
Cunning entail thee hide to let thy killer believe, thou hath rested in peace.

It would take great daring for thee to thread on SPEW territory.
In GRYFFINDOR thou will be happy!

Brilliant. "Or perhaps in Hufflepuff; those slow, delusional students" - that was the best part (Not that I'm against Hufflepuff). To sum up: Brilliant.

Author's Response: *checks behind to see if there's any rabid badgers*

Thanks. Great to hear that you enjoyed that one best ... the one about Slytherin in prison was getting too much limelight. The Puffs fully deserve a bit of recognition. *evil smile*

*checks behind again*

Kidding! (Those badgers can be dangerous.)

It's the best one! I really, really liked it! Do you remember me? I have tie same username on harrypotterfanfiction.com and I just wanted you to know that I'm using this song in a fic of mine, on one forum. I didn't know where to credit, so I'll just link here, OK? Do you remember that you added this to the song: The strategist and the soldier They were the best of friends Their foundation was shook asunder And thus the friendship ends Judge not an apple by the tree Look onto the apple for what it is Abandon old bitterness and be free New allies should not be dismissed Well, I am finally using it and I just wanted to say how great it is! Well done!

Author's Response: Thanks LilyEvans79! Of course I remember you. So glad to here you're using it :)
