Wow, that was great BL! It seemed like such a realistic story about what it's like when a muggleborn is accepted to Hogwarts. It was sweet and lightly funny, and I just loved it! One thing is that the actual viewing of the story is a bit spaced out. I think what happened was that you tried to edit something, and for some reason whenever you do that it adds a bunch of breaks in the paragraphs. At least, that's what happens to me. Anyway, awesome job!
Author's Response: Jules, thank you! Yes, I'm aware of the spacing problem; others are experiencing it, and the problem has been reported. I'm sure the wonderful mods will find a solution. :)
I enjoyed your exploration of the feelings of parents and other relatives on learning a child is so very different. JKR's characters have focused so much on the worst Muggles that we forget others would be very unlikely to react as negatively as they did to Harry, yet would be just as unlikely to consider it as wonderful as we fans believe we would. I also have to admire your story-telling skills--you drew me right into the story, introduced me to the characters without drawing attention to the fact you were doing it, and kept it all moving. Very well done!
