Nice job! I'm glad I found this story. It's very well-written. Your characterization of McGonagall was brilliant. Poor Ron :( And he was really going to do it, too. I also like Ginny's character so far. Glad she's back with Harry ;) I'm looking forward to chapter 2! Amanda

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review! So far I've gotten mixed responses about how I dealt with McGonagall. Some say she's slightly unrealistic (I can't say I didn't expect this...), and some say she's true to character (... but this is what I TRIED to do!). Either way, I'm excited that you're excited.

Author's Response: Haha.. I just checked out your website. [I was born at St. Peters in New Brunswick, too...]

I like it! You really did a good job with McGonagall - I could practially HEAR Maggie Smith in my head as I read along. As for the story, its very well written. Looking forward to reading the rest of it!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! Because it was slightly uncharacteristic of her to approve of a Sadie Hawkins dance, I tried to play up her other characteristics (i.e. very intelligent with just a touch of snottiness) to stay as close to canon as possible. More to come shortly!

Great story! I love the idea of a Sadie Hawkin's Dance. Also, I loved your description of Ron. I can totally see him in teddy bear P.J.'s. The only thing I'd suggest is to make McGonagall more canon. She seems a little unrealistic. But overall, really good!!!

Author's Response: You know, you're right. And I definitely took that into consideration. My rationale is this, though: I had to have something that wasn't the standard ball, AND McGonagall had to be the one to approve of it now that Dumbledore is gone. I tried to lessen the unrealistic-ness of it as much as possible, but we won't be seeing too much of her in future chapters anyway. I really appreciate your input, though. It's great to know that people are REALLY reading.

That was WONDERFUL! I am DYING to know what Ginny is up to! I especially loved Ron with his teddy P.J.s! Ha! Update soon please! *10/10*

Author's Response: You can't believe how encouraging it is to receive such compliments. And really, can't you just imagine Hermione saying "teddies" in the same obnoxious way that she told Ron he had dirt on his nose?! Thanks for the review!

I'm impressed. Nicely done; you even pulled off the set up of the ball without resorting to the word "masquerade" or other such cliches. I like it--please update soon, I want to find out what happens!

Author's Response: Thank you! I really appreciate your saying that because I was trying to do something that hasn't yet been done. I actually didn't want to do a ball at all, but my idea for a date auction was rejected. C'est la vie...

Fantastic! I thought the start seemed to skim over things alot, like it wasn't important what thehad accomplished, but the rest was brilliant. I was thrilled when it looked like Ron and Hermione would be going together, and when Ginny suggested the Sadie Hawkins dance I literally jumped up and yelled at her "No! No no no! Don't say that!". So now I'm angry at my favourite character, and it's all your fault. Just kidding! This should be interesting, I only hope Hermione gets up the courage to ask Ron! Though I suspect she will lol. 10/10

Author's Response: As for the beginning, I simply had to cut all that stuff out. I didn't want the chapter to be too long or have too much of the sad stuff. And I don't think you should be angry with Ginny - she's the reason the plot line exists! I'm a huge Ginny fan myself, and I think she's clever in a way that's much different from Hermione but a whole lot more fun. Basically, she knows how to spice things up, if you know what I mean...

I actually also really liked this story - although the whole "Hermione wears makeup now" thing always bothers me .. but that's just because I'm a canon freak. Anyways, I'm really excited to see the next chapter! Great work!

Author's Response: Thanks for being one of the first to respond! It's funny because I've just left a review for your fic as well. And I do get what you mean about the makeup, so I tried to downplay it a little. But I admit that I do enjoy a little face-painting now and then so I had to add it in.

Brilliant beginning! I liked how you offered an explaination for why the trio was back at Hogwarts, whereas many new fics I've read jump to school without referring to the events of HBP. I also thought the talkboard was a good idea, and thought Ginny's suggestion was an interesting twist. I look forward to seeing where you take the rest of the story!

Author's Response: Thanks also for being one of the first to review! I had initially wanted the story to be centered on a date auction - which I thought would have been absolutely hysterical - but the reviewing moderator said that was unrealistic and rejected it. I was confused since there are stories out there about Ron and Hermione groping each other to oblivion or taking their clothes off that don't seem at all realistic to me, but oh well! I'm glad you enjoyed this version.
