Chapter: Peeves

Again I've read this before but it was nice to remember where Peeves came from. I think this is an excellent explanation and it makes so much sense, after all, Professor McGonagall must have regained some of her mischievous nature over the years and taking examples from OOTP she was overheard telling Peeves the correct way to detatch a light fitting and she also expressed her regret at not being able to join Peeves in chasing Umbridge from the school. Sorry for the less than flowing review, in summary this fic was excellent.

What a fascinating suggestion as to where Peeves originated. And Minerva turning Umbridge into a toad was reminiscent of Hagrid trying to turn Dudley into a pig, but a lot more hilarious. An excellent fic!

This is an excellent little one-shot! First let me say, yay for the femmeslash, that seems to be the loneliest little category on Mugglenet. Second...this was nice! This is a very unusual story line, but fits in with canon perfectly! I can just see Minerva as a little hellraiser in her youth! :)
P.S. Loved the title. :)

Incredibly random story line, but you worked it (trying to use cool phrase failure) :D

Aw. This fic is cute without really being out and out fluff! An amazing achievement, I must say! I really liked Minerva's characterization, though I thought it was actually rather sad that Peeves took all of the mischief out of her - well, not all of it... :D. Anyway, I really enjoyed your writing, as always, and I thought this pairing - and your OC - was really sweet.

Author's Response: Thanks! Glad to see this fic getting a chuckle from someone, and that you found it to have a comfy level of fluff!

Poltergeists are indeed traditionally manifestations of the repressed energies of teenaged girls, so whose was he?

Really? And I thought you just made it up... I never knew. Then there's even more to this story than I thought. I retract my previous statement.

Author's Response: *giggle* I wondered about Peeves right away, and then figured he made sense for a boarding school. When Minerva started telling him which way the chandelier unscrewed (and how does she know, anyway?) and loaning him her walking stick, though, suddenly I had all sorts of amusing ideas about Peeves. The question was just where they fit in the grand scheme of things. Thanks again!

I don't.... know.... what I can say, except maybe...


Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. So cute! I loved this fic, it was alltogether too cute! Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but it's far cuter than anything I thought you could possibly produce, lol.

There, done joking. I loved the idea with the Poltergeist. Not a theory I would have used myself as to the creation of one of those buggers, but very amusing, and it served its purpose in this story.

I could definitely go with the idea of Minerva being into girls. That would actually explain very well why she never got married or had kids. I never considered it before, though... Then again, femmeslash was never really my genre (though I'm working on a Narcissa/Lily fic for Jenna :P), and I'm far more likely to make up unusual maleslash pairs. Funny, that... I guess I'm straighter than I thought.

Anyway, like I said, loved the story, and the ending was super-cute. I feel all fluffy inside now! :) Never stop writing!


Author's Response: Femmeslash doesn't seem to be much of anyone's genre on MNFF -- it's sadly empty in here. I'm not sure why this wanted to be cute, exactly, but it demanded to be. Simone herself, I think, is cute, in her own tough little way. As for Minerva, it just seemed to fit, somehow. I'm glad this gave you a good read! This was one I wasn't all that sure about.

I really like this, even the little things like the referenct to appolyn pringle are great little touches to the story. congrats :)

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed reading this little historical snippet. Pringle is a sadly neglected character, I think.

Ho! That's rich. Now we know who put the wand up Minerva's, err, robe. Adding Leadbottom's gram was a nice touch.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I'd been wondering about Minerva and Augusta's past ever since the Charms discussion, and where Peeves had come from for longer than that.

Chapter: Peeves

Very interesting.
I don't think I'll be able to re-read OotP without smiling when Peeves gets hints then uses Minerva's cane. I loved the retell of the toad, it explained alot of the rivalry in later years. I wonder what the reaction of a certain other Slytherin would have been when they first met, not to mention the other Griffindors. You did a great job writing a young Minerva.

Author's Response: Thanks! Peeves started making me smile right after I read OotP and came up with this little theory. The trick was making words to go around it. The toad needs to make some more appearences, doesn't she?

Chapter: Peeves

Wow. I never thought of Peeves as being Minevra's. Maybe he should rejion with his owner and give the students a laugh. Well, with Dumbledore gone something might happen and the world would be destroyed or something :).

Author's Response: Scary thought. I think he's probably way too happy being free, and she's probably pretty happy with being rid of him, relatively speaking. A rejoining might take quite a lot of pushing and shoving by some outside forces. The mind boggles. Thanks for reviewing!

Chapter: Peeves

How cute to bring a fresh breath of French to Hogwarts again. I love your appreciation for "little cabbages," mon petit chou. And it seems so natural for a French person to be open to new ideas.

Your attention to detail in setting and characters sets your stories apart from others, as always. You're so creative! Where did you get the idea for Peeves, so imaginative and dazzling and satisfying!

Author's Response: Thanks! The idea for Peeves actually came first, when I noted the "It unscrews the other way" and the walking stick. Poltergeists are indeed traditionally manifestations of the repressed energies of teenaged girls, so whose was he? Minerva's talent for spotting trouble suggested that at some point she might have been very good at causing it. And then this nice new character popped in to tell me about it.
