this story is absolutely fabulous. there is just the right balance between history and plot, and I like how true the characters are despite the fact that they are in a completely foreign setting. I'm still curious about just how Charlie gets away with his underground business--does he tweak the financial records that Bill has? I was confused during that part. Why don't Charlie's neighbors notice anything? How wealthy is Charlie if he can afford to buy new slaves all the time?
All in all, this is an extremely clever story, and I can't wait for the next installment.
Author's Response: Oh, I just noticed I had a review I hadn't answered *feels happy*
so to your questions. Charlie is quite wealthy, and he is most of all a good businessman. He does enough business to be able to afford this. His neighbours don't notice because they think he kills his slaves and would never suspect him of anything of the sorts. Bill does tweak the finansial records so that they show reasonable results for his shippings even when those shippings are consisting of slaves rather than sellable goods. That's balanced out by reducing the profit on shippings that are all cotton as well, so that the end result is consistant with what he actually has. I hoped that helped.
This story is still super good! Still not rushed at all, which I like a lot, and I love the plot so far. Although I do miss the magic and Hogwarts, I am glad there is a creative and fun twist to the story. I like how it's in the 1800s. Great job again!
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm so happy you like the story.
hey nice chapter and very iformative too, the boston law n the description of the tub. i had no idea...
Author's Response: Thanks :D I'm far too much of a history geek not to include small tidbits like that. *grin*
i am really enjoying this story it is a great twist
Author's Response: Thanks. :D I'm glad you like it.
Wow there were a lot of surprises in this chapter! I had no idea some of those things were coming! Good writing (of course) and still keeping it slow. I'm still finding it hard to find any constructive criticism, so I'll keep reading to see if I find any at all. Great job and keep it up!! ~HStarRunner23
Author's Response: Thanks. I'm so glad you like the story so much. I just hope you like the rest of it as well :)
hey it's such a wonderful story, the way its progressing. and you have put together everything in such a magical way, it's not like just a romance story but has the right amount of descriptions and intrigue and all that. plz update soon.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and I've added the next chapter so we'll see how long Mugglenet takes.
You are a truly gifted writer. I was (not so) patiently waiting for this chapter and it was definitely worth the wait. Hoping to see Charlie in the next one!
Author's Response: Thank you. I was actually not so patiently waiting to be allowed to add this chapter, so I'm glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully next chapter won't be so long.
Another great chapter. i really enjoy how you are slowly introducing Hermione to Charlie's world. Absolutly brilliant!! 10/10 for sure
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
Great Chapter! I have an idea of what's to come and am so excited. Hope to see the next chapter soon.
Author's Response: I'll try my best updating fast I promise.
Oh my gosh! This was a great chapter, and it really left you hanging at the end. I'm excited to see what's coming! I'm trying to find some constructive criticism for you, but I can't think of anything! You're a great writer, and I'm definitely watching this story for the next chapter! ~HStarRunner23
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you like the story so much. And that you think that I'm a great writer of course *blush* :D
Still a good story! Nice job on keeping it slow. It doesn't feel rushed at all, which is usually something I notice in peoples' writing. Good job on it!!! Keep up the awesome work and please keep me posted! ~HStarRunner23
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm glad you think it's good. And I'll keep posting, don't worry :)
I think this is a super story! I can't wait to see what else you have in store! It's really great and you should keep up the good work! ~HStarRunner23
Author's Response: Thanks :D
This story is great, I can't wait to see how it unfolds...please keep writing!
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you think so :D
I love this story, I like that it is in the Civil War time and that it is American. I also like how you changed how the characters how, please write more.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy the story. As for writing more, I am presently working on writing the tenth and final chapter of this, so the next one is already submitted.
Hmm, this is something interesting and refreshing, with a completely altered background to the normal Harry Potter world. It's a bit weird seeing Charlie Weasley acting so...different and Hermione suddenly a "lady" with a sharp tongue. Are you going to include any reference to the wizarding world in this fic? If not, then...you better do. This is an HP fanfic site, after all. As for your writing, I think it is very good and precise. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoy it, and I hope you'll keep reading it.
Hey this story rocks. I like the total new disposition on how it occured. Civil war, Americanized, and a new perspective on Charlie. Bravo!-Sauce
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm so glad you like it. Next chapter is on its way :D
