As I read this, I wasn't sure where you were going with this, but the ending was hilarious. The best bit was about McGonagall's secret life of crime. I can so imagine Hermione doing this.

Awesome!! Loved it.

Author's Response: Yeah, this is pretty old now. Probably one of my least favourite in fact, but I'm glad you liked it anyway. Yay!

Author's Response: Well, it was never supposed to be hilarious, and I'm glad you enjoyed it anyway. Thanks for reviewing! At least someone thinks the mad stuff in my head isn't a bad thing ...

Oh I love your writing, this was hilarious, not least because it's all so true. I think the best line however was Identify what “type” the teachers all are. Professor McGonagall looks shifty, read up on whether she has a secret life of crime.

Author's Response: Well, who knows? It could be true. Umm ... Probably not, though. =D Thanks very much for reviewing!

When I was reading this I was thinking that this was almost a perfect guide to middle/high school. but then I saw your little note at the end of the story. you forgot something though. Never, ever, EVER, try to prove you are smarter than somebody else. I've seen people try to do this and it just doesn't work.
Great story though. I'm not sure why u like this one the least.
-may the muffins be with u.

Author's Response: I don't know, I just tend to forget about it I guess. And you can always try to prove you're smarter than somebody else if you ARE smarter than somebody else, but it won't win you many friends. And you're right. Often it just doesn't work. Yay for the muffins!

i just checked and saw that i did indeed already write a review but nm, i think your story deserves more than one review! also, i wanted to add that i think it is great how you give author responses to your reviews. not that many people do that.
I also wanted to ask you something. I have tried to get this story through and it has not been exepted. it is a humor fic and as you have written so many great fan fics, i was wondering if you had any tips on how to improve and maybe get the fic through on mugglenet fa fiction. any advise would be appreciated.
again, great story^^

Author's Response: It's okay, I always make a point of replying to every review, because I like when authors reply to mine. I wouldn't be able to give much advice on humour unless I saw the story itself, and even then I don't know how qualified I am. May I suggest a beta from the forums? If not, I can look over it for you if you want, but I can't guarentee my advice would be enough to get it through. Still, if you want to, contact me through my author page and send the fic. I'm perfectly happy to check it out for you!

(i have read this story quite a few times and its hilarious but im not sure if i left a review so just in case ill leave one now^^)
I didnt like that sotry, i LOVED it. it was really great and i loved the way lily viewed hogwarts and all the fifferent "groups" of people. and i just adore the way she believes she is one of "the best people to be". and also, i really admire your knoledge of the harry potter books, the senario with the snoring, where lily suggested not to use pink earphones was a stroke of brillience and really clever. and i LOVED your "how to sleep with your eyes open" day dream tips. i think i might even use some of them in some of my lessons as they can get a liiiitle boring (a lot actualy but...) But my absolute favorite part was the end with hermiones to do list. "rename mr tiddles. do not loose him"
was just so funny. it almost made me fall of my chair with laughter and that last sentence was great. it was a great ending to a great story and it really made me smile^^
congrats to ynother brilliant story!!!!!!!!!

Author's Response: Wow, thanks! I'm really glad you like it so much, because to be honest, this is one of my least favourites ... but I'm so happy that's just me being cynical. A lot of the "groups" and daydreams and things I took straight from the original thing I wrote about my middle school (though now I'm at my upper school, I'm much happier, and can barely remember what it is about my old school I hated so much anyway). Then I just modified it to suit Hogwarts. Thanks a lot for the review, anyway! It made ME smile, so thanks for returning the favour!

“To Do List:

Research Lily Evans. Still alive? How old is this guide?

Identify who I can trust out of all the Dorm mates. Look for one of the friendly people, and offer to lend them a quill every now and again, until they are a friend.

Learn to set up a sound barrier. A girl is already snoring.

Make sure no one in the Dorm is a kleptomaniac. Make sure that I’M not a kleptomaniac.

Rename Mr Tiddles. Do not lose him.

Identify what “type” the teachers all are. Professor McGonagall looks shifty, read up on whether she has a secret life of crime.

Make a homework planner.

Practise pushing without force. Sounds crafty.

Never trust anyone who call themselves “The Marauders”.


Brilliantly written! you explain perfectly how Hermione came to be who she is! and her to do list is entertaining! 100000/10!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! You know, I don't even like this that much anymore, I often forget all about it ... but I'm glad someone still seems to have enjoyed it! =D

love the conection at the end.
professor McGonagall life of crime.that made me smile....its just so absurd. In all i liked it you addapted it from you own school? I must try the pushing without force thing.

Author's Response: I did adapt it from my own school, quite heavily ... ESPECIALLY the pushing without force, which I became a master of, if I say so myself, and I don't think I was ever last on the bus because of it ... so it proved very useful! Definitely try it sometime! (But remember - deny EVERYTHING).

I am so adding this to my favorites. I could read this a thousand times and I wouldnt get bored. I laughed so hard i almost fell of my chair. My brother thought I'd gone completely mad. lol.
I wonder what harry would have done if he had seen the shrine in the girls dormitry. And also, what would hermione have done if she had found out that it was harrys mother.
Great story

Author's Response: =D Good questions indeed ... I'm really glad you're enjoying it! Happy New Year!

funny :)

Lily seems to be unpopular, though, from her tone towards dorm mates not liking her, etc. JKR said in an interview that Lily was quite popular, like Ginny...just something to consider :)

REALLY good job...i laughed out loud!

Author's Response: Well, yeah, though I wrote this before I officially heard that. I wanted her to sound cynical, so I made her very mistrustful and stuff, for the humour. It's not supposed to be agreat characterisation, just a bit of fun. Thanks for reviewing, anyway!
