The end of an era. I feel weird that there are not going to be more "Dear Dumby" chapters. You must be happy that you have now more time to dedicate to other fics and other projects.
The beginning of the chapter was great, it started with a bang and it hooks the readr instantly. That line was fenomenal "I always wanted to be a dentist" I'm still laughing about it.
Te next part was also funny the one with Ron and Hermione. He's like your thousend of childrens. I've always thought that they had an interesting dynamic and you get it quite well (of course, it's your OTp after all). I did catch a mistake though "remember you’re stupid," it should be "your stupid" instead if "you're" I make the same mistake all the time,
“No, no. Alright then, how about pinkie swear?” That was hilarious. There is something about Lucius and Voldy doing a pinky swear that it's just too funny. And the gardening club was also funny.
Yay!!! Finally Ron and Hermione hooked up, I wasn't expecting anything else. I loved their reaction when Harry caught them. Total denial, it was funny and very well written. Reharsing a play and mouth to muth breathing lol. I could really see that happening in the books.
My favorite line of the chapter was probably "how closely their children resembled sea slugs, both in brains and appearance" It was very funny, I had to stop reading and laugh out loud for a couple of seconds before continuing the story.
The ending was very cool, how Voldemort looked for someone to listen to him. Someone should tell him about therapists and how great they are. That way he wouldn't have to bother Bob. *chuckes*
I know you thanked a lot of people, but I have to thank you for writing this. Seriously, It was wonderful to read your work and you've given me a few good laughs. I'm sure "Dear Dumby" will become a classic between fanfic readers.
Author's Response: Once again, thank you for your wonderful review! *huggles Harald* Aw, I hope it will be the end of an era. I feel weird knowing there won't be any more Dear Dumby chapters too! I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad - a bit of both, really. I'm sad that there won't be any more letters, advice, or chapters at all, but then I am happy to break free of it, and like you said, focus on other projects. So I'm not sure.
Thanks - I must admit, that line was among one of my favourites too, so I'm glad it's spreading the laughter! I'm absolutely thrilled that you liked the humour and dynamics with Ron and Hermione, for as you stated, they are my OTP and I love (writing) them dearly, so it means a lot to me that you liked it. Thanks for catching that mistake - I'll go correct it now! I did feel sorry for Lucius on that one - things had gotten bad enough without Voldemort "hoping to die" - pinkie swear really was the only option!
I know - Ron/Hermione all the way!! (I didn't expect anything else either - but then I wrote it...) That scene has to be one of the most fun for me to write - even when they're together, they'll never be completely rid of the denial!
It's funny that you say that's your favourite line of the chapter, as it was actually a last minute add in when I was going over the chapter before sending it to my beta! The ending I felt would be a good way to end it - as Voldemort wouldn't be able to get over the trauma just like that - that wouldn't be realistic! *gigglesnort*
*huggles* Aw, thank you, Harald - I am so, so pleased that you've enjoyed it, and thank you so much for your wonderful reviews, they really make my day. And I can safely say that it was absolutely no problem at all writing this - I've had such a good time - I can't wait for my next humour fic! *cough* Ahem - I mean, next...er...bloomer...kit? *giggles* Wow, I really hope that it does become a classic - but only time will tell, eh? Thanks again for your lovely review! *huggles* *wipes away tear* *stops using asterisks* *giggles!*
LOL!! Great story!! Bit wacky, but enjoyable. Voldemort is definately just misunderstood... :D
Author's Response: Thank you!
Author's Response: *bows/curtseys* Thank you, thank you, thank you very much!
First, sadness at the end. Then, massive chucklings and snortings at the vast humor installed within this chappie. Massive kudos!!!! (Pst! YOu could do like me and do a sequel.....;D ).
Author's Response: Thanks!! I know - mixed emotions overload!! But I'm really glad that you enjoyed it! Hmm...a sequel? Well...
Once again, I am bored, and do not feel like getting up from this chair out of laziness. Also, a certain fictional series is bugging me... The Larry Motter Series.. See, it's about this kid wizard who has to take on the Evil Lord Bunny, and... Anyway, I won't waste my time with the whole story. But the seventh book won't come out until 2007! It's a huge bother. How will I wait?
Larry Motter Fan
Author's Response: Dear Larry Motter Fan,
Wow, the Larry Motter series sounds good! The Evil Lord Bunny... Gosh, what a terror! What is his party trick - giving out sweets to little children? Or is it stealing their sweets? Maybe he got his metaphors mixed up... What will you do until 2007? Why, read more stories, of course! Either that or free-style water ski-ing...
lmao!!! definitely a nice ending. i'm hpboy13, btw (long story). how come all my favorite stories r coming to an end? r u sure there wont be a sequel (Dear McG or something)?
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really pleased you enjoyed it - the ending especially. To answer your question (albeit evasively), no, I'm not sure that there won't be a sequel...!
So...er...I guess the whole ‘I hate you and never want to see you again’ was a euphemism?
BRAVA! BRAVA! BRAVISSIMO! This is sheer brilliance, and the ending is even better than I could have expected. Too bad this is the end. :( I liked the shippy fluff... it was really cute. And Voldemort is funny, as always.
Author's Response: Thank you!! (I must say, I liked that line as well!) I'm so pleased that the ending exceeded your expectations! Even if it is sad for it to be over... It was fun whilst it lasted! Thanks for reviewing!
i love it too bad it is over (frowns)
Author's Response: I know, I know - but all good things have to come to an end.
Hahahah! You're really funny!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you think so!
I'm sorry it took me so long to review. I was certain I reviewed earlier, but I can't find my review in this chapter. I guess I'll re-write my letter.
I have horrible news. One of the best humor fanfictions has just ended. Luckily, by monkey/brother is trained enough to change the clocks at school so I was able to nominate this for the QSQ Awards. I hope this story does well in the awards.
I'm going to miss looking forward to the chapters, but I will look through them often for advise when I need it. Tell the author thanks for sharing the wonderful story with the readers of the world.
Author's Response: Dear Loves_Dear_Dumby,
Your reviews are always lovely, whenever they come! Oh no! I am so sorry for your loss of the humour stories ending. Your monkey/brother sounds very cool to be able to do that, but I feel it is my duty as a headteacher to dissuade him from doing it again (or alternatively to make sure he doesn't get caught!). However, the author would like it known that she thinks it's brilliant, and would like to be able to do that herself. The author (being on the forums as well) is absolutely thrilled that you nominated this story for the QSQ awards, and is very proud and thankful indeed.
The author (and myself!) will miss the chapters - and the story! - as well, but are very glad they are still here for reference when you need them!
The author wishes to thank you for reading it, for reviewing it, and for enjoying it - that above all makes her extremely happy. Love, Dumby
great story...ron and hermione are together! hoorah. okay, um great story, write more stories!
Author's Response: Hoorah indeed! Well, how could it be any other way?! Never fear - more stories will soon appear! But not poems, you'll be glad to hear!
OMG this so rocks! I love it!
Author's Response: Thanks!!
Wow. Amazing grand finale. I
Author's Response: Thank you - even though some of your review got cut off, I'm glad that you enjoyed it!
Ha ha. very funny!!
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Even though it's the last chappie it's the best. An excellent story!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Kiara, that was awesome! I know why they didn't like Voldy! He was a psycho dude who hung bunnies... and took little kids to caves... and was just an all around weirdo! Like that guy I saw on the street corner last week... Until I found out that was my uncle Joe.
That sure went off with a bang! Anyway, I gotta go. In the words of Christopher Paolini, "May your swords stay sharp!" -completes nerdy statement-
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I see your point about Voldy - but I'll leave it to you to explain that to him! ...Good luck with your Uncle Joe too... (*Lol*) Thanks for reviewing - my sword will be at my hilt for a long time, that's for sure!
Aww, it's over! That was the bestest chappie EVER! ...even if it was the last one. *tear* Ah well, Voldie really needs a psychiatrist...or one of those couches psychiatrists have.
You've done a great thing for me...and thats making me laugh! *tear* I'll never forget you or this story!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so pleased you enjoyed this chapter, as I had a great time writing it (it's one of my favourites, actually!) I agree with you about Voldemort's need for a psychiatrist or a sofa - but I'm not sure which one would be more reluctant! Aw, I'm so glad that I made you laugh - and I'm glad that you won't forget me or the story - I won't either! Thanks for reviewing!
Ha Ha. Verrrrrrrrrrrrry funny! *sarcasticly* I wonder why no one likes Voldemort!
Author's Response: *Lol* So does he! Glad you liked it, thanks for reviewing!
Haha! LOVED the story! Too bad it's over though...
Author's Response: I know, I know. But all things have to come to an end! Glad you enjoyed it though!
Ohh!!! I absolutely loved the ending. The only bad thing I could find wrong was when you used the wrong word. Otherwise, I absolutely loved it! Can't wait to read your other stories!
Author's Response: Thank you! I will look over and see if I can find the wrong word and correct it, thanks for the heads up! I must say, I quite liked the ending, so I'm glad you did too! Thanks for reviewing, and I hope you enjoy my other fics as well!
