Chapter: Upward Bound

I jumped into this story in the middle and fell in love with it, so now I'm going to have to read the whole thing! Fantastic so far!

Chapter: Dragons and Other Impossible Tasks

Well, this appears to be the last chapter on the site for now and it's such a shame as it has left me with a lot of loose ends. Did Moody realise Rinna hadn't a Dark Mark and cease defending her from Karkaroff because of this? What did Snape see in her mind? How will the short holiday break go at her house? Where's Hagrid been lately, tending to the screwts? I liked Hermione's conversation with Rinna, perhaps she'll be less frosty towards her from now on. It was also good how Hermione noticed all that stuff about Krum without realising she noticed it, it'll probably catch her off guard later. Okay, I'll leave it here, Until Chapter 22 then...

Chapter: Hexed, Vexed and Perplexed

I'm so glad you decided to show a different side to Krum. I wonder if he maybe gets on with adults better than other students because of his fame. Rinna's way of getting rid of Karkaroff was so funny, and he deserved to be brought down a peg or two. As did Draco Malfoy, a bit deluded wasn't he? I bet he felt like a little boy when Rinna ruffled his hair. The Lily flashback was great too, shows that she wasn't all sweetness and light, you'd think she'd understand that Rinna wasn't keeping her secrets from Lily but someone elses, but I suppose thats easy to see when you're on the outside watching. I suppose it's sobering to know that not everything can be solved with a quick flick of a wand, some things need working at like friendship and steeling fake dragon eggs. Shame Rinna wasn't a Fairy Godmother, but that wouldn't make for interesting reading now would it? Happily ever after never does. Having said that, I wouldn't mind a Fairy Godmother.

Chapter: Halloween

It was excellent the way Rinna was put into the discussion about Harry's name coming out of the Goblet as an observer, we got to see the situation from a completely different point of view. Just makes me wonder, if I were another student, how I could fail to notice Harry's bewilderment. Guess grown-ups are different that way. Sneaky thing to do, recruiting Remus and Sirius so she wasn't breaking any rules too. Wonder what she felt about Moody that was strange, hopefully we'll find out later? I liked the toasts to James and Lily, we should all do that for departed loved ones. Somehow I keep forgetting that it was Hallowe'en when Harry's parents died, odd that. Can't wait to read the next chapter, think I'm getting a bit addicted to this story. I used to read for hours, getting through a book in three nights, not sensible when I had homework. Diversionary tactics, maybe I'd've made a good Quidditch strategist.

Chapter: Misbehavin'

I'm not going to say it again because the keys on my heyboard that spell out 'best chapter yet' are waring out. The staff meeting was hilarious, almost made me want to be a teacher, almost...don't think i could cope with the actual teaching part. I loved how Trelawney was included too, a lot of fun can be had with her character, pity it's usually at her expence. Glad Madam Hooch got a few lines too, we never seem to see much of her in the HP books. You mentioned a while ago about Alan Rickman, well I think he's one of the best cast in the movie and far scarier than even Voldemort. I think Snape is an excellent Character altogether because you never know how to take him. Mass detention, ingenious! never been done before. Hope to see more pranks too. The end to the chapter was very tastefully written i think, my favourite part being when Sirius enjoyed just the simple contact with another during the massage. I nearly forgot to breathe at the very end when he was afraid he'd imagined it all, what a terrifying thought.

Chapter: Lions and Snakes

Again, best chapter yet, will you ever get sick of hearing that? I love the marauderesque quality to it. Like with JKR, every time I read a passing mention of the marauders i have to smile. I can't believe how Dumbledore knows everything and yet just leaves situations to play out as if he didn't. I think he's... oh there isn't a word, he's just DUMBLEDORE. I'm now wondering what the tingle in Rinna's hand was, perhaps holding Harry's wand did it? Parsel mouth too, well it'll be something Harry and she have in common won't it? I love the quick spell invention too, any new charms or hexes really interest me. Rinna's talk with Hermione was good too, maybe she was speaking from experience, you know, she feels like she failed to act as Hermione did, perhaps thats why she was a Slytherin and not in another house. People keepp saying that Harry looks for trouble, well I'm not so sure, He seems to find himself in trouble because he can't leave a situation that needs righting. People who don't stand up for themselves get trampled so he retaliates and then the situation esculates, perhaps thats his mother coming through. His father on the other hand seemingly caused alot of trouble with pranks and picking on Snape just because he existed. Oh, and Neville producing a bunch of daisies, a not so bad Slytherin girl and Malfoy's referring to Hermione as a 'bushy haired bint' were all really nice touches.

Chapter: Hogwarts (part 2)

I'm glad someone offered Harry a word of comfort after Moody's lesson, however small. Funny how Rinna and Remus had the same idea but missed one another. I thought that was hilarious, don't think I'd appreciate being surprised in the shower much though. It reminded me of Friends when they kept trying to pay each other back for seeing each other accidentally, don't know why, the situation is completely different. It's always surprised me how people can just come through the fireplace, I mean what if you didn't want visitors, or what if someone caught Sirius. Perhaps there's a Do Not Disturb spell.

Chapter: Hogwarts (part 1)

I thought that was a good place to end the chapter actually, but I guess it's down to personal taste. I thought there would be some good dialogue between Rinna and Snape, XLNT! Dumbledore always manages to be there at the right time doesn't he? Fred and George were so authentic, I just love them. It shocked me when Snape swore, never think of teachers as ordinary, but having said that I've never heard a private conversation involving teachers, they probably swear like troupers normally while all the time berating students for the same thing. I'm afraid I can be very 2D when judging people, I once saw a TV presenter, who on his own show seemed genuinely polite and nice, being interviewed and he turned out to be the most beastly man. Also, the amazing bouncing ferret, this reminded me of the letter from Molly to Rinna in a previous chapter, shame Moody hadn't read that letter and Malfoy wasn't being dangled just out of Beaky's reach.

Chapter: Quidditch, Correspondence & Conversations

I was really interested in the Narcissa/Rinna friendship. I've wondered before now if Rinna had been in Slytherin, her sneaky Quidditch tactics, her befriending anyone 'no matter their House' etc, but I wasn't sure if Sirius would date a Slytherin. My only suggestion is that her friendship with Lily and connection with the Weasley's making her an apparent blood traitor also quelled her Slytherin status. The deleted section was hilarious, but it made me think, bad things happen alot in this and I'm sure in the Wizarding world, but we never see the irony in the fact that at the same time there are good, or in this case silly things going on

Chapter: Opportunities

Chapter 13 was so full, where to start. It made me feel teary eyed when Harry wanted to be close to a Motherly figure like Mrs Weasley but couldn't, I gave a sad smile when Sirius likened Harry to James and the trio to the Marauders and co. I laughed out loud at Dumbledore's mischievous nature then felt enlightened by his deep wisdom. And finally I really felt for Remus, self sacrifice wins out again, poor bloke. The best chapter yet. I think having a new character like Rinna emphasises the others who we know so well and sometimes take for granted. Keep writing.
P.S. You sure you aren't JKR in disguise, or did you just study the characters really hard?

Chapter: Second Chances

The flashback was brilliant, makes me wish I'd gone to a school like that, although I'd probably still have been as unnoticed. Tonk's is such an extraordinary character, she's like two people in one, almost as if her brain has 10 PHD's but her body somehow got trapped in that awkward kiddy dropping smashing spilling always tripping over your own feet phase. I wish I had a friend like her, she's so wise and honest.

Chapter: Coping

I'm glad Rinna got angry rather than cracking and ending up in St Mungo's as they expected. I was a bit confused when Sirius started making all those sarcastic comments because he'd been so upset after their encounter, but I'm beginning to wonder whether he know's Rinna so well that he realises when she gets so riled she's just getting it out of her system and will soon see reason. Perhaps thats why Hermione joked about it too, being as perseptive as she is. I was just wondering something from previous chapters, Rinna's shrinking charm, is that a speciality of hers as she does it quite often. It would be great if I could do that, carrying shopping home would be alot easier. The Order training to apparate to your own personal escape point was brilliant too, like the message patronus was a mark of the Order, wonder what else they would've done?

Chapter: Aftermath

I think my favourite part of this chapter is Tonks being so perseptive and I hope to see more of her as I read on. The Quidditch game took precedence over birthday presents, a really nice touch, proves that being together and enjoying yourself is more important than STUFF(for want of a better word). I'm glad to see Remus is reverting to character, being the fatherly marauder again. Don't know how helpful my reviews are, but you did ask for more of them.

Chapter: Romantic Intuition

I must admit that I was much more comfortable with Rinna and Sirius than Rinna and Remus. Hope they do get back together. Was the pendant matching the engagement ring a coincidence? Maybe Dumbledore will offer Rinna the DADA teaching post, although that won't be much use against Voldemort, there might be some interesting conversations between her and Snape. thanks again...

Chapter: The Best Laid Plans...

I enjoyed the Dunny and Dorrie Friendship, but did you know that Dunny was an Australian toilet? Maybe you did. When Rinna and Remus are alone again, I got a bit embarrassed, Hopefully I'll get over it, I think it's because JK made him out to be the sensible bookish marauder.

Chapter: Disclosures and Intemperance

The first part of the chapter was quite light-hearted,the football, sibling manipulation and another revelation to set their cogs wirring. Remus and Rinna's encounter was so well written that I felt as though I was intruding on their privacy. Hope Sirius doesn't find out or he might fly off the handle without knowing all the facts. I never thought of Sirius as the settling down type, but all JK tells us is how he was at 15 and how he was after Azkaban. Think I've read too many fan fics of him going through women like Joey from Friends. I'll have to approach each fan fic with a fresh perspective I guess. Anyway, sorry for getting off track, thanks for the words.

Chapter: Explanations and Broomsticks

I've been trying to think of some constructive criticism so my review is helpful, but I'm afraid I failed miserably. I loved this chapter, from the closeness of Rinna and Remus and her recognising a similar quality in Harry Ron and Hermione's friendship, to the way flying the silver dart made her feel free for a fleeting moment. Does the green tinge to the broom have anything to do with Slytherin? I think Harry should remember that just because green was assigned to Slytherin house, it is also the colour of nature, and of his own eyes too. My only problem is, I can't read this fast enough, Rinna is so guarded too, I'd love to know more about her. Wonder why she needed protecting by the Weasley's?

Chapter: Retrospection

I really love the idea of the album with captions and stories. The parts where Rinna struggles with her nature and detachment are very absorbing, I think because alot of people are like that. I once read a quote of Christopher Pierce Cranch's, something about man by man is never seen, and sadly it's true. Can't wait to click NEXT.
