Hi! Happy Birthday! This was a lovely story, one of the best I've read about Jemina yet. I feel like I know so much more about her now. I hadn't realized her story was set in the future, that is really neat. I had been wondering about James too - so is he a grandson, great-grandson? You did a great job showing Jemina's uncertainty about her career choice, and then getting her to realizing she wanted to be an Unspeakable. Nice job, I'll be sure to read more of her stories! Have a wonderful day! ~Gina :)
Good story. I'm really enjoying Jemina! I love the interaction with James Potter, too! Poor Jemina... hasn't spoken to her mother for that long? Jemina did seem a bit... perfect though. I mean, only Os... not even Hermione is that good... That's just me, though. I really enjoyed the ending especially! The Head of House is a great character!
Author's Response: I enjoyed witing him! He was such a fun character! And I wanted her to have someone. Kinda like sirius and Dumbledore for harry. Only Lenity isn't murdered. The reaso Jemina is perfect is because she's a brilliant girl. If you read the Truth About Daddy you'll see that it's in the genes. I wanted her to be elite, like her father.
Oooh Miki, what a wonderful story! It all flowed very well, and I loved the modern feel of it - obviously it takes place in the future, and the names like Lenity and Raleigh were very nicely chosen.
Jemina Doyle is a very real character, with her family problem, but a normal teenager otherwise. Her desicion to follow in her father's footsteps was very touching - it shows how much she loved her father.
My favourite character in this story was Lenity. He's a kind, good old man, and I hope he helps Jemina on the way to being an Unspeakable later on. (Is your entry for the HHWP based on Jemina?)
When I first read 'James Potter', I thought it was Harry's father! That was stupiid of me, but maybe the name is a little cliche? Well, maybe not too much. I think Jemina and James are a perfect match.
Well done on writing a lovely story!
Author's Response: Do you want to know a secret? When selecting names I type in a nonsense word and see what spellcheck tries to fix it with. Maybe James was a little cliche, but I figure it's okay all the same. To clear up he's the grandson of Harry Potter. Thatnk's for the great review!
