Well. -blinkblink- That was interesting. I love musicals, though, so....
Being the red blooded bloke that I am it all got a little embarassing when I started laughing outloud at Moulin Rouge references, but hey, thats excellent writing for you.
'MERLIN: I am here to save the day' might well have to be my new msn username, I think you might have a catch phrase on your hands...
...but please do me a favour, if (when!!) you write a follow up sneak 'Like a virgin' in there somewhere. If you do I shall be eternally in your debt and shall send you doughnuts by post (possibly).
Enjoyed it a lot 8/10
OMG!!!! that is ssoooooo amazing!!!! You used all my favourite musicals, especially Moulin Rouge and the Lion King. Seriously, as soon as i saw the Be Prepared bit i was screaming!!! (im kind of obsessed with the Lion King, i saw the stage production 3 times and im seeing it again in July!!!) and Luna/anyone, especially Ron, is a fantastic ship to write so kudos to you for that :D hmm... now im going to have the Spectacular Spectacular song stuck in my haed all day... "so exciting!"....
DRAMA GEEKS UNITE! Would you like to know how absolutly wonderful this is? It's SO good that until I got to Slytherin singing 'Be Prepared', I thought you had written the songs yourself. Which means that a) I need to see more musicals and b) you're an absolutely fabulous writer who should definetely write part two! 10/10
Wow, Haley! You really are someone with many talents! Not only are you an amazing banner maker, but you are also an amazing writer. This was such a hilarious one-shot and I loved it! The more I read the more I laughed, especially Hagrid being a tree. Too funny. My brother was just asking me what I was laughing at and I had to tell him that he wouldn't understand (he isn't a HP fan) and now he is looking at me like I am a freak, but it is all worth it! Great job!
This was just HILARIOUS! It's three in the morning here, so I had to stuff my fist in my mouth to stop myself from laughing. When I first looked at the title, I was like '?', but now - this review is hard to write because I'm concentrating on not waking up my parents.....I shouldn't be here in the first place *giggles* Anyway...I absolutely loved the 'Hagrid was a tree' part, and Lavender's love for 'Won-Won' didn't die away either ;-) What else? Oh yes, Harry as Merlin was great too! Not to mention "We could feed him to the Crumple Horned Snorkack?" Very funny. It truly was a great musical!
I love musicals! Yay!
I loved it! =) I'm trying to figure out where The Lion King fits into it, though. I love Disney movies. Haha. It's kinda sad. My parents keep telling me I'm too old for Disney... But my friends like it too. =)
Anyways. Yeah. I loved this! Malfoy was hilarious. Awesomeness all around. 100/10!
I knew when I first read the title of your story, I had to read it, since I love musicals! It has got to be one of the best stories I've read in a while, and it will be going on my favorites list as soon as I'm done with this review! When Harry comes out to save Ron, I could not stop laughing! Who knew somebody repeating something could be so funny? Please keep writing! Suggestion: Maybe you could write about the preformance. That would be great. 10/10 weasley_wanna_be
OMG! *laughingwaytoomuch* this was SO great. still laughing...
I'm Still laughing I love the ending and how hagrids a tree but why do you have to make fun of draco like that I know its funny and he is a cute ferret but i love him so i give you a 9
As someone who is involved in community theatre, I can tell you that I would've definately casted Draco has Salazaar. xDD But, honestly, this is brilliant. 10!! I love the Lion King. It made me laugh out loud. :3 I also like how the "script" is bolded. <33 Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Hee, normally I would have casted Draco as well! But I think this fic called for a little change up. Hehehe and I'm so glad you liked the story--it was sure fun! Thank you for all your wonderful compliments :)
Ok, this is good. I love theatre and I've always thougt if they did a Hogwarts musical it would be really really funny. It was perfect! Just curious, did you take the "it will run for fifty years" thing from the Producers? Cuz that was in one of the songs (The Producers is one of my fave musicals of all time) Anyway, I really liked the song lyrics and thought it was really good.
Author's Response: Actually, it's from the Moulin Rouge song 'Spectacular Spectacular' :) Glad you liked it. Thanks for reading!
You know, you should really make this longer. I know a one-shot that's now on the 6th chapter! Why don't you try to beat that? This is too funny to be a one-shot!
Author's Response: 6th chapter! Oh dear! My main fic is barely past that point... but I may do a Pt. 2, how's that??
Hiya Hal! Ella here! Well, usually I try to leave...er...cerative critisism behind me when I review, but you are a bit unfortunate, I'm afraid. I can't think of ANYTHING that you could change in this to make it any better! I am a HUGE drama geek, and am familiar with all the plays listed here! (I've actually seen them on stage! And I was even in the chorus of Camelot!) Anyway, great work! 10 most definately!
Author's Response: ANYTHING? Oh dear... I must be a very unfortunate girl indeed ;) I'm a huge drama geek too... It makes me so happy to see that there are so many of us on here. Thank you for coming to review me, dear. It makes me happy :)
ha I don't get it but it's completely hysterical and I'm laughing my head off anyway....Chicago is the best musical ever...and I'm sure Harry made a very good Merlin. you should write more stuff like this...hahahahahha lol 2million out of 10... that's all I'm going to say....
Author's Response: Eh, what's to get!? Not only is it a humour fic, but it's also a musical... and we know that neither of those are supposed to make perfect sense 100% of the time. I'm so glad you had fun reading, thanks for the review!
Sorry. I'll stop rolling on the floor laughing my arse off now. Wait...I CAN'T!! (Giggling) Okay. I'm okay. He had it coming? Malfoy the amazing ferret? Warthog's backside? (uncontrolable laughter can be heard) Sorry. I'll just go put this in my favorites now...
Author's Response: *rubs hands together* Excellent! No but really, thank you. I had fun with this!
FANTASTIC! I loved all the songs!
Author's Response: Yay!! Thanks!
Haley, I have to say that that was hysterical. Our dear “Professor Pat” recommended it to me, and it was a jolly good read! : ) Every part of had me chuckling or even laughing outright. What a good piece to wrap up my night! The intro was very nice; I liked how you didn’t introduce names right away. While it was easy to guess [Ron, Harry, Hermione, Luna] it kept the beginning from being really redundant. Just thought I’d interject that.
Ron as Godric Gryffindor. Oh my, when I read “The red head was attired head-to-toe in luminous red and gold fabric. It was a very puffy outfit, and gave the impression that Ron was quite rotund, when in fact, the effect was attributed to the enormous sleeves.” the imagery popped into my head and wouldn’t go away. I can imagine the sleeves overtaking him and Harry and Hermione trying not to laugh in the mirror.
“Why don't I get to be Salazar Slytherin?” whined a boy with very very very very blonde hair, and a very very very very very whiny voice. [skip] “And also, I look much better with my shirt off. Hate to break it to you, Malfoy, but you're really pale and flabby.”
LOL! Blaise/Himself! That cracked me up. I was wondering what you were going to do with that. And very very very nice description of Malfoy. It was so easy to guess who that was, because only he’s like that. Haha.
“MERLIN: I am here to save the day!” over and over again was one of those lines that just made you giggle every time Harry said that. I can imagine that look on his face perfectly. I also loved Hagrid as a tree! I can’t believe he was almost a tumbleweed. Hehe.
The last part was best, though. Lavender, Won-Won and the random Chicago song! I love that movie, and you used it in just the right place. It was a great way to wrap this up. Yes, I know this is mostly a fluff review, but I couldn’t resist telling you how much I adored this. You should so much more humor; I would be a loyal fangirl! [Not that I already am...] Keep on writing humor, even if it’s random things like Blaise/Himself. :D
Author's Response: Yayyyyyyy! You know how much your praise means to me! *huggles Phline* I still can't believe how much of a hit this thing was... Maybe I just might write more, we'll see ;)
I love it! You have to write more! Please!
Author's Response: Thanks, Quincy! I may get around to more, we'll see!
