Chapter: Chapter 17, Mass Murder at the Ministry

nice chapter. it's wow. the Death Eaters song is a nice touch, but i would have loved to hear a bit more of it. i really don't know how you could improve it, really. it was done real nicely. maybe umm, okay, i really don't know how to improve it. umm, maybe a bit more action and saying the action. how beams of lights were everywhere and near impossible to not get hit by them or something.

So, get the sequel up quickly! :D

~Lindsay!

Author's Response: Thanks for the advice! :D

Chapter: Chapter 17, Mass Murder at the Ministry

There was a flash of blinding green light, which blocked out everything else. Harry heard the awful rushing noise and the dull thunk of a body hitting the floor. He heard Ginny scream, and when the light cleared he could see why. Moody had been murdered from behind, and a large gang of Death Eaters where all grinning evilly at them.

I reviewed! i claim it! sorry, i'm doing a scavenger hunt thing.

Author's Response: ... okay, cool! What scavenger hunt is this? ~Evie

Great way to end a great story! I loved how you avoided a clichéd ending. It wasn’t depressing, nor was it ridiculously happy; you found just the right balance.

AHHH Cairns!! I was there two months ago and I loved it!!! It might be a little too touristy of a place to live, though (but I’m not pretending to be an expert in anything Australian). I’m looking forward to the sequel!!!

Author's Response: Glad you liked it! I don't pretend to be an expert on Australia either! :o ~Evie

haha..i forgive you about the hole in the Ozone layer. Sorry, my review did come off kinda harsh. I dont know really know how to describe Cairns, but it is most definatly not a favourable place to visit in Australia (for Australians) I suppose because it is very far away from anything, and if you really want to experience the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays is much more favourable.
(funnily enough, my dad is in Cairns right now on a business trip - he's been complaining about it for weeks, he hates Cairns...)

Kath and Kim is a deranged TV show about a mum and daughter combo. They live in the australian suburbs (i cant remember which state...i *think* in NSW) and are incredibly foul mouthed. Most Aussies love it, only because it means we can poke fun at ourselves. But at the same time most Australians do pray that overseas people dont think we all act like that!

And yeah, i am so happy your not going to portray us "Hollywood" style. And yeah, even though i am a HUGE fan of the Simpsons, i dont really enjoy the episode in which they go to Australia and meet a kid called Tobias and cant find a cup of coffee. (as a matter of fact, Adelaide is famous for having some of the best coffee in the world) And it also makes me angry the way Americans portray english people aswell. I have lots of English friends and i can tell you, you dont sound a thing like the americans make you out to!

Im also really glad your going to try and do some research into the Australian culture. Its pretty frustrating when overseas writers base something in Australia, and then because they dont actually know anything about us the whole story is plotted around the Sydney Harbour Bridge, "That White Building" (The Opera House) and barbeques. (i cannot remember the last time i had a barbeque...so i have no idea why they assume we all like them)

Anyway, im sorry about your aunt...but i hope you do enjoy your next trip here. You really must go to the Gold Coast next time, unfortunatly, its another "over done" tourist area but the theme parks are just...to die for. They really are something else. Of course, i have never been to any other theme parks....so im sure the ones in the UK are much better.

HAHA...I have never, ever come across an Aussie who is "at one with nature" and lives in the bush. Mind you, if you have only ever been to Queensland, it can be a little deceptive and make you *think* everyone does live in the bush. Its very...trees in Queensland. Especially Brisbane. But i promise you, tucked in those trees are suburbs and gigantic shopping malls and trains. (my sister lived in Brisbane for about 2 years)
Other states are a little less...bush...in Australia. Adelaide is small, but sunny. Our CBD is made of beautiful historic buildings and we have the biggest cinema in the southern hemisphere. And a very good shopping district called Rundle Mall. Its also quite flat and we have far too many snobby schools.

Melbourne is my favourite city in Australia, only because there is no other place like it. Its older looking and can be a little busy. But the CBD is just brilliant. Its set on the Yarra River and its called Australia's Fashion Capitol. So....when you do come back to Australia, make sure you try and visit Melbourne at else. (and by the way...Melbourne is pronounced "Melbun" not "Mel-Born" as Tom Cruise demonstrated in Rain Man)

So yeah, if you havve any questions, just ask me, and i will be happy to let you know the answer!

And thats a great idea about having the school underground...just make sure its not under Alice Springs, because underneath Alice Springs is in fact, a huge water spring that supplys the town with water. I dont think there would be much room for a school. Though i still think the Blue Mountains would be a great place for a magic school. Only because the area...(this sounds really corny...) looks magical. As the name suggests, it appears blue, in varying shades depending on the time of day. And the temp never (usually) exceeds 32 degrees celcius.

Good Luck!

Love Sarah

Whoot! sob! nice ending, but you had to move them to Australia? it's so far away from everyone else! but at least there's a sequel! Let's see, Lilian's and Jamie's second year and Sirius' first, pretty exciting, huh? and they would be well known there too, right, or would they be treated as, "Oh, your dad fought in the war? good for you." ?

Love your story! get the next one up ASAP! oh, and on the story's profile, it says that this story isn't completed. are you going to add the sequel to this story, like have chapter 26 chapter one for the sequel or was that just a mistake? i like the added on version and say that on the story profile.... well, okay! Nice story! don't leave this for long periods of time!

....Red is reading, shh!....

Author's Response: You'll see... you'll see... Yeah, that was a mistake - I'll go fix that after I've responded. :) I'll try and get it up quickly, but I haven't even begun writing it yet - I'm still planning. It's more difficult now that DH is out. ~Evie

Chapter: Chapter 25, New Life

Why Cairns and Townsville? I live in Adelaide (south australia) and i have visited pretty much every major town in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales and i have to say, that out of all those places, Cairns was the worst and most dodgy. I can kinda understand from the characters point of view in trying to "hide" but they would probably be more suited going to WA or South Australia, not only because its prettier, but because its less of a tourist destination.

hmm...yeah for some reason, Cairns is a huge tourist destination. I suppose about 25 years ago it was very pretty, but these days everyone who lives here in Australia just views it as abit of a hole, and not a great place to go if you want to hide.

Erm...sorry, i just dont like that part of Australia. Tourists have destroyed the area. But in sure Harry and Ginny have found a lovely place to stay.

So were are you thinking of placing the Australian magical school? In Quidditch Through The Ages it states that Australia is one of the best countries to play Quidditch in because they can hide the pitches in the desert. Would you place the school in the desert? I think it would be abit too hot there...during summer the temp out there can exceed 55 degrees celcius.

I think somewhere in the Blue Mountains would be perfect (they are in NSW) The area is huge, and highly protected. Perhaps the wizards would put anti muggle charms around it in a Hogwarts esque fashion?

Or even in the Flinders Ranges (South Australia) Or somewhere along the Murray River (the border of Victoria)

Or maybe because Australia is so big you could have two Wizard Schools. One on the Western side and one of the Eastern side?

Oh...and please PLEASE do not portray us Aussies with a horrible Kath n Kim, Steve Irwin or other such "Occa, Australian Accents" which we are portrayed with in Hollywood (and yes, i am aware that Kath n Kim and Steve Irwin are Australia, but they are actors who "put it on" to appeal to American and English audiences). Trust me, a majority of Australians DO NOT sound like this. I even asked an American friend of mine what we sound like to her and she said we hardly even resemble to style of accent to which we are portrayed in Hollywood. She said we have a tiny "twang". But depending on where you live in Australia, also depends on the type of accent you will have. Queensland Australians are probably the closest to what is portrayed in "Hollywood", but even then, its barely similar. South Australians are much more English sounding and Victorians have the most flair and slang.

Im sorry if it seems like im bossing you around...im just letting you know more about real Australia, and not the type that is shown to tourists so your story can be as close to the truth as possible.

Anyway, good luck with your story. If you have any questions about Australia, you can ask me in your Authors response and i will reply with a review.

Love Sarah



Author's Response: **coughsplutterdie** Cairns dodgy!?! I resent that!! Well... I suppose I did go there as a tourist. Two years ago, my family and I went on holiday. We flew to Brisbane, spent a week there, and then spent ten days driving up the coast of Queensland (yes, I know, ten days - not much time, eh? We were in a camper van with NO air conditioning!) stopping off a Townsville, Fraser Island (It was beautiful, I loved it to bits) and then ending at Cairns. We spent another week there and then flew back to Brisbane. I know, there's a hole in the ozone layer with my name on it. :o When we got back, we decided to immagrate to Australia, which resulted in quite a few more trips, althought they were less sight-seeing/tourist type trips. Unfortunately, the aunt we had out there very suddenly and tragically died, and so we could not get past the immagration rules. :( However, I have completely fallen in love with Australia, and we plan to go back Christmass 2008. Don't worry, I know what Australians sound like, and I won't percive them all as Steve Irwin (may his soul rest in peace) or Kath n Kim (I don't know who they are) and there is NO WAY I will make out like all Australians are "at one with nature" and live out in the bush. Although I am not Australian, and have never been in Australia for more than five weeks, I do know quite a bit, and I'm prepared to research more. So far I've been able to cope with writing things that I am not overly familar with (Torn, anyone?) and I hope that I'll be able to write the sequel well. :) Slightly off topic, I understand what you say about the Hollywood version of accents. A lot of Americans seem to think that in England, everyone speaks like the queen or speaks in that dodgy cockney accent that the chimney sweeper in Mary Poppins speaks in. I partly blame The Simpsons. :p Thank you for your offer - I will bear that in mind and in the future I may send the odd email via your profile asking questions. :) ~Evie

Author's Response: EDIT: Sorry, I'll just respond to the questions in there that I missed! :o Sorry about the massive paragraph above as well; I did try to break it up, but the system's a bit funny sometimes. I am unsure about the location of the Wizarding school at the moment - like I said, the sequel is only in the planning stages. But, I think the desert is a relatively likely option, but I'll have to find a way around the temprature. I was thinking underground, but I'm not sure. ~Evie
