No, no! I didn't mean it was bad - I just know you can write better. You write brilliant summaries!

I so can't believe you're American. Amazing. I mean, if you weren't British, you'd have to be some nationality other than American. You have boosted my expectations of American writers. Thank you. I am rather prejudiced against them, you see. I wish I wasn't, because I do know some Americans, and they are very nice people. Very friendly - welcoming-ish.

What's wrong with Wales? I am learning to speak Welsh, thank you very much, and I like their culture and Celtic heritage. I think that you're friend really should re-consider his ideas about them, the same way I constantly have to re-consider my ideas about Americans.

May I suggest Faded Roses by a friend of mine (who is also American)? It may take a while to come on, but I would like to advise you to read it. She is another who has boosted my expectations of American writers. She is a brilliant author.

Thanks for your advice about looking in Help. *bangs fist into head* I did not think of that.

I can not wait much longer for Ch6 to come out. I think i may explode if it doesn't come within the next 6 weeks.

ah gina, I can not tell you my name.

Author's Response: Hullo again! Just a quick note to let you know that I will be sending Chapter 6 to the MNFF que tonight, so look for it soon! But, I will be posting it into my LJ and the link is in my stats, so if you don't want to wait, it should be on there tonight. Um...I dunno what's wrong with the Welsh, I've nothing against them...my friend Andrew does :op He's a stuck up Londoner, tho...*giggles* Nah, he's coolio. Later -g (PS - I will answer all the other comments soon, just didn't have time this morning!)

Very Good. Very Good. I am so happy that you have taken my advice on the summary. Can I give you some more? I really love this new summary, because it's short and still draws you in. I have had difficulty understanding the last bit of padfootnflawks' review, but I agree - if I guessed correctly what was said - most people would prefer, non-avid readers anyway, a shorter summary. However - i know, i'm like that - I think the second paragraph could have been more enticing, although, if you prefer to keep it that way, it's fine - no, great, i just think it could be better.

do you know how to change you're username? If not, do you know where I can find out? I have a better one on another site - I like it more - and would prefer to use it here, rather than uk_rulz. The uk does rule though! I hope you agree with me. The way you write, you must be a briton, or someone of another nationality who can write british slang etc very well!

can you give me an estimation of when you will finish the 6th? Just an estimation, I don't mind if you go over, I'd just like to know so I don't keep going near to a heart attack everytime I check my e-mail. (I have you on favourites). Is there any way we can get you a prize here or nominate you for something or anything? That would be nice.

Thanks for replying. Yet again!

Fantastic FanFic!

Author's Response: You know, that buggering summary bugs me! I canít get into writing something good for it because right now Iím not motivated/inspired to write it. UghÖIíll have to work on itÖIím terrible at ďsummariesĒ. Regarding the usernames, I donít know how to change it, no, but perhaps itís in the Help menuÖlame advice I know, but thatís all I got. I bet you could use another email address, and create a new account, but Iím sure thatís not what you want to do. And nope, Iím not British, although I have a lot of friends I talk to from over there (which my friend Andrew would argue that he is not BRITISH but ENGLISH, because if you call him British, your associating him with the Welsh, and thatís just not on!) *giggles* I am (unfortunately) a pure blooded American. *sigh* Estimation Date: I sent CHAPTER 6 to my beta just this morning. But I will warn you, I give her all the time she needs to go thru it (for the grammar is horrid) and she is a busy, busy bee herself (in her candle scented office space) so it could be a few weeks before we see it. But that gives you an idea, right! Yay! Iím sooooooooo happy with Chapter 6 tooÖI love how it ended!!! Chat soon! -gina

*gasp* you changer your summery!! I love both of them....The reason i read your story is cuzz i say the long summery...i know that kinda weird, but i hope that most people arent like me so that they see ur new and improved summory!!! Also can you recamend stroys to be on featered?? cause i deffently will recamend yours!!

Author's Response: Hullo again! I think the summary still needs some work but I just can't get motivated to change it! Ugh! Hehe, I'll get to it someday tho. Umm, I don't know if you can recommend fics to be featured, but if you can that'd be ace! Thanks again for checking back! Chapter 6 is off to my wonderful-est beta today. =)

Thank you for replying! You don't know (or do you?) how it feels to review something and then see the author write back!!

I don't know if this is extreme, but you are one of my hero's now. I mean I wouldn't go overly screamy over you (okay, maybe I would), but sometimes I feel the same about you and your fanfic as JKR and her story. Do not go wild and over-the-top.

Also, I do wish you'd hurry up. My exams are this week Thursday to sometime next week, so you'd better have Ch6 ready by then. Or Else!!!!

Sorry for being so impatient.

Oh yeah. Check my previous reviews. YOUR SUMMARY IS TOO LONG. Very good and exciting, as I say, but really, if I hadn't been reading your fanfic since before you wrote it, I would have skipped over the mass of writing. Good for a small newspaper review, but not for a summary inviting people to read your ever so wonderful fanfic.

Remember, if you ever decide to become an author. Put it up somewhere around here. I will be checking.

Author's Response: Oh stop! :op I love responding to the comments and I do to each one. If someone is going to take the time to compliment my story then I'm going to be polite and give my thanks...my mummy taught me right. *nods* Well I'm working on Chappy 6 at the moment (since I'm at lunch) and you will be happy to know that I finally took your advice and slimmed down the Summary...go check it out when you have time and tell me what you think....Tootles =oD

Wow. Wow-wow. Wow wow wow wow wow.
I love your story! It was great! I like the way you get Slughorn to meet Sirius; I hope he helps him! I also like how you get Sirius closer to Remus because usually, in other fanfics, they treat him almost like an outsider (same with Peter) instead of part of the group, with James and Sirius on top of everyone in a "we're so great we don't need you lot" kind of way. James is a bit obnoxious and bossy and know-it-all-ish though. Do you really think he'd be like that?

I wish you wouldn't have school and work and stuff so you can just let us have the next chapter presto! I have exams soon so i don't know whether I'll be able to check up on my favourite fanfic.

Keep It Up!!!!

P.S. Hope to see more of the House of Black.

Author's Response: First of all, THANK YOU! I love these kinds of reviews that ask 'why I wrote something that way' or 'why do you think that'! OK, so the reason I made the convo between Sirius and Remus is because (perhaps) James and Sirius do become the top of everything in the future, but this is the very beginning and the school is new to all of them. Personally, I feel that James & Sirius are both such STRONG personalities that they wouldn't suddenly "meet on the train" and be best buds. I think in any relationship there are low points that make the high points better. Blah, I'm rambling!!! Third, I think James (being an only child) and just from what we've read in OoTP when he's hexing Snape, that he has his moments of obnoxiousness, Sirius does too. And, being eleven I think he'd be even more so. I think you will find you'll like James more throughout the story...*taps chin* perhaps in the next chapter already *wink*. And yes, more House of Black next chappy...for it is CHRISTMAS after all!!! =oD

Author's Response: Oh, and I kinda went off on a tangent there about the Sirius/Remus convo...sorry! But I think at the very beginning all the boys are just trying to fit in, and they do all become very close friends, but each one in their own seperate ways. I think Remus would have been a bit of a comfort to Sirius, in his 'all knowing' Remus ways of thinking but not in an arrogant sort of way....Ugh...does that make any sense? So yes, at first they are all mates and eventually I think James & Sirius do pair off as "best mates". =o)

These are lovely. Do continue.

Author's Response: Thank you! New readers make my heart soar! *smiles brightly* Chapter 6 is about 50% complete although the outline is complete. Summer keeps me busier than I like but look for it soon! =oD

this story's so good!! i love how sirius is learning all about the world, and how you describe everything so perfectkly. i can't wait until the next chapter!!

Author's Response: *Squeeeeeees* Wow, what a review! Describe things so "perfectly"...*smiles* Why thank you! I'm so happy to write something people can relate to and picture the way I see it. *grins again*

Sorry for not reviewing sooner. I thought I already reviewed for this chappie. I only realized I didn't review when I was checking on my reviews to see if anyone wrote back. I'm soooo sorry. PLEASE FORGIVE ME?! *Looks at you big puppy dog eyes and pouted lip* PLEASE? You can virtually slap me if you want.

Author's Response: Forgiven *pets you* - Kim: If you read this you are a terrible influence! I am now petting complete strangers I met on the interenet!!!! <---- Poop. More exclamation points.

Name: aintcrazy4you (Signed) · Date: 06/03/06 17:22 · For: Chapter Five - October 1971
Great chappie! Your a great writer! I actually FELT the awkwardness when reading the Remus and Sirius scene. Feel so bad for Sirius. Well, I was going to use more exclamation marks but I don't want to make Remus mad so NO MORE EXCLAMATION MARKS!!! Wait! I just use some! *Giggles uncontroable* Sorry Remus! *Giggles* You can slap me your a person who doesn't like giggling.

Author's Response: Are you kidding?!?!? *giggles* Ooops, look what happened!!! *snickers* Oh man!!! *snorts* Crap, look at that!!! *cackles* I can't stop! :op - I am glad you felt the awkwardness because I wanted Sirius to feel like a complete heel...this means I succeeded. *nods*

okay i know that your proubly getting anoyed that i keep reviewing but i was wondering when the next chappie is going to be and how long this story is going to be (I hope it is 12030384 cappies). I know that you just sent in a chappie but i just love this story so much...


Author's Response: Well, Chapter 6 is only about 50% done at the moment. BUT, the outline is completely done, just filling in the gaps. The problem is it's SUMMER and I'm busier than I like to be in the summer. =o( No fair, I like to be a lazy sod and write.

Author's Response: Hello you! Yes, well it will be a bit before Reggiepoo starts school but there will be plenty Sirius/Regulus interaction in Chapter 6. It is Christmas you know! :op

Hey, just started reading and I'm really enjoying it! Regulus is really cute, and the relationship between the Marauders is very interesting. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you! New readers makes my tummy do flops! Yeah! *giggles* Regulus is just to cute he makes my heart ache *pets him*. Yes, I'm high on caffeine right now so this response means nil...pfft. Oh well. Thank you so much for reading tho! Makes my face smile!

Awesome, awesome, awesome...I loved the Mauraders' prank! And I really thought that the little conversation between Sirius and Remus at the end was great. Keep it coming!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for commenting! I'm glad you liked the Sirius/Remus convo. I think it worked out alright, I needed to get Moony in there a bit! Thanks for reading!!!

Any word on when Chapter Five is coming out? Because I am absolutely, positively DYING without it!

Author's Response: Please don't die! I would hate for that to happen! Think of your family, think of your friends, think of me losing a reader! :op Well, Chapter 5 has been to my beta for a few weeks, but that is not uncommon. She is a very busy chico and I don't like to rush her because I lover her to bits (and she's inside my head which is very handy). So, all I can say is soon, I promise. I am diligently working on Chapter 6 too, so I shall be shipping that off when I get 5 back. Thanks for checking back! I love getting comments! Yay comments! =oD
