Oh dear, hysterical! One thing I find interesting is the fact that "The Simple Joys of Maidenhood" (with which I successfully auditioned for a play) was originally sung in a musical starring RICHARD HARRIS, who is none other than the original ALBUS DUMBLEDORE! And that was a run-on sentence! I've also used "Be Prepared" in a spoof, sung by Voldy-kins, o'course! I've been in sixteen musicals, and up until now, the one I've most wanted to be in was "The Phantom of the Opera." But NOW it's this one! I want to be Helga Hufflepuff! *Loves Ron* *Is a Hufflepuff* *Likes fluffy yellow dresses* *Is hyper* *Uses too many asterisks*
Author's Response: Oh! I didn't even think about the Camelot associations! Nice one ;) You know, I suddenly really want to be in this musical too... We should be in it together! Hee, thanks for reviewing.
I loved this! I've been waiting for time to read this. I've started it like three times, then got kicked off. This is so good. I really liked it. You should definatly write more chapters. OR ELSE! 10/10 HermyRox12
Author's Response: Yay! I'm glad you finally got around to reading the whole thing--hope it was worth it!
lol i can just imagine hagrid as a tree and waving to harry! and prof. pat "a fine speciman of a man". i knew hermy would love a teacher!! and the moulin rouge song!! the lion king i didnt catch it... you meant by he cartoon or the broadway one?? lol please right more chpters!! it would be better if it wasnt a one shot!!
Author's Response: It was the Broadway version :) Though I don't believe they're much different. I may make a Pt. 2 to this, we'll see. Thanks for reviewing!
Hal, I not only thank you, but I give you fanboy squees with fanboy love and fanboy jumps. Yes, I loved this much more than words can count. It was hysterical. I am actually in it! That was one of my favourite parts, most definately: Professor Pat/Hermione. I enjoyed it so much, and I think I've read it over 30 times now. It's just that good. I cannot get enough. You even threw in some Ron/Luna! I ADORE you for that. *huggles and squees and jumps and rolls on floor in contemporary fanboy-ish like ways* I should nitpick, but I am going to turn a blind eye (yes, deaf ear, but I am limited with the circumstances) to any mistakes. It was enjoyable.
Okay, I believe the fanboy fest is over now, only a few more "squees" thrown randomly in the review, and I should be done. "SQUEEEE!" Going foward, you included Lavender for me! I loved the "He had it comin'" part; it seemed to be one of the best parts of the whole one-shot. I thanketh thee! She was entirely in character too. And, I'll forgive you for the "Won-Won". ;) Just look at her massive ball gown, shining yellow! Brilliance my dear. I wish I could have seen her use that dagger... maybe get Ron put in the hospital wing for a few days... >.>
Hagrid. As a tree. HYSTERICAL. I loved seeing Hagrid as a tree, and especially the reference that he could not play a tumbleweed. "SQUEEE!" Harry, jealous of Hagrid... of course Harry would want to play the protector, the one who could save them... and Ron in the spotlight. So cute, I loved the songs you chose as well. They fit so well! Even the dancing ferret was funny. I especially liked Blaise/Himself. You should write more on that little ship... *whistle* *is kidding*
Hermione, in love with Professor Pat. The icing on the cake, I do believe. Just like with Lockhart, she's trying to convince Harry and Ron to try and like the class. I loved how well you kept everyone in character, even with their little, erm, OOCness lines. "One fine speciman of a man". *GIGGLESQUEE* Hilarious as well. Have I mentioned how much I loved you? I don't think I have. *SQUEEEEE* Was that a good enough bit? ;) I think it was, anyway. But, you never know...
I enjoyed this SO MUCH. I thank you 1000 times over. And I am still squee-ing every time I read it. *huggles*
Author's Response: *shakes head* I'm still amazed you love it as much as you do. I mean it's not exactly... great literature... *sidelong glance* But I did have fun writing it, and I had fun writing it FOR YOU. I couldn't possibly leave out Ron/Luna and Lavender. And it was just too tempting to pair you up with Hermione. Besides, I knew if I included all these silly little things, you wouldn't be able to tell how strange the whole thing actually is.
*huggles Pat* Thank you so much love.
Loved it, so funny!
Author's Response: Hehe thanks!
To quote Homer Simpson: "I love the theatre." It seems a shame that this is only a one-shot; you couldv'e had disasters on opening night and had Harry, er, Merlin, punch out the Duke!
Author's Response: Hee! Great idea :) I may add on a Pt. 2 eventually... Thank you for the review!
that was...SPECTACULAR, SPECTACULAR! haha! loved the moulin rouge references! 10/10
Author's Response: Hehehehe yes me too! And thank you dear :)
Hahaha that was really funny! I caught The Lion King and Chicago references on my own, but I missed the other two. That was really cute to fit in actual musical songs. At the beginning I thought you were ripping them off, haha but you gave credit to them and it was a nice touch to put them in. Anyway, this was a really funny fic and I really enjoyed it! Good job! 10!
Author's Response: Yay! Thank you! I had fun finding the right songs. At one point, I was going to change up the words and such, but 1) I was too lazy, and 2) they seemed to work just fine on their own. Thanks for reviewing and I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
That was funny! I don't know why Lavender got to be Helga because she's supposed to be a Gryffindor, but it pulled the "plot" along quite nicely!
I have just one nitpick: "you're run of the mill Merlin" should be, I'm pretty sure, "your run of the mill Merlin." Oh, and bespeckled? I'm not sure I agree with that description. perhaps bespectacled . . . ?
Ah, I wish all Humor fics could be like this one. You've actually got quite a talent. Not that I ever doubted you for a second, of course.
*giggles* Professor Pat. *giggles* "one fine specimen of a man," eh?
Great job with the challenge and all (what can I say, I peeked in SPEW one day), it was a great masterpiece and Malfoy's last line was pretty good too. *rolls eyes* Okay, I'm done. Have a nice day! *D*
Author's Response: *grins* I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I've never written humour before, so I am astounded at the fact you think it's actually a good humour fic! *beams with pride* Oo and thanks for the nitpick... I'll get around to that eventually. As for Lavender, I just wanted a way for her to enter the story--and can't you just picture her in a big yellow ballgown holding a knife? ehehe
