Brilliant, I loved it. There's so much we don't know about Charlie, he's a background character in the books really so i love to see what people make of him. Oh and the charm Cordi invented for protecting falling products is great.

Ooh! I love this! Charlie's characterisation is amazing, and I can practically see him jumping onto a broom and catching the snitch at any time! Well, he did catch quite a snitch, if he has Cordi...

“Hey Cordi,” Charlie whispered softly.

“Yes?” Cordi asked, halfway to the stairs leading to their shared quarters.

“Soon,” Charlie promised.


So sweet! You just feel like crushing Charlie in a big, humungus hug!!

I really loved this!

Chapter: Dragon Tamer

I Love this series! I already read the Boy Who Lived, and it was just as good. Fortunetly for you (unfortunetly for me, as this review might be a bit spammy) I can find no fault with your discription of Cordi -it has just the right words so you can see her in your minds eye. The only thing is that she might seem a little Mary-Sue at first. She's beautiful, and smart, and funny, and just to good to be true. But I still Love her! I will have to read the rest of the series to see if she stays that way.

Author's Response: Thank you!

It was my intention for Cordi to come off as a bit Mary-Sue in the beginning, as when you first meet someone you tend to look at them through rose-colored glasses. Remember, the first part of the series is how Charlie viewed Cordi when he first met her, and to him, she's perfect.

Given a chance, in the later stories, I'm hoping that her insecurities and flaws will be a little more evident, allowing you to love her even more because she's not perfect. And, even though she's not, Charlie still loves her.

I do hope you read the rest of the series, as I have grown rather fond of the pairing and I can't wait to write the last story. Also, Cordi is my first attempt at writing an OC, so I need all the feedback I can get.

Thank you again!!

Haha, I laughed out loud when Charlie walked into the display case. Very amusing! I'm not sure I could tolerate a store full of pink, though. Stores like Hollister and A&F scare the crap out of me because of they're so dark and loud. If Charlie's so in love with Cordi, why hasn't he asked her to marry him? What's he waiting for?

Author's Response: Ahhhh. This is a one shot glimpse of their life, the first part in a series of 5 or 6 stories. I haven't had a chance to put the next one in yet. Sadly, you will have to wait through at least two more stories before they get hitched. :) Thanks, A.

Author's Response: Thank you! This is one in a series of five or six stories I have planned, maybe more. I have four written and ready to go into the queue. I am working on the next two right now. As soon as the queue is back up and running, I'll start submitting them!

Like the rest of your stories/chapters you have done a brilliant job. I cant say how much i love to read you writing, your characters great, the story lines even better! Cant wait to read the rest of the chapters of this story aswell as the final chapter of HPTBWL and hopfully a sequal ;)

Author's Response: All of these stories are little one shots, that fall in TBWL's universe. I thought that they needed to fleshed out a bit in order to understand some of the more minor characters. I'm so glad you like them!

I don't want to offend you, but I just have to say this: Cordi sounds so much like a Mary Sue that I nearly gagged. Seriously. She needs at least one flaw--like a nose that's too long, or really shaggy eyebrows, or less perfect hair. Or a personality flaw; for instance, she gets mad really easy and yells at people for no apparent reason. For believable characters, you have to include flaws. And Cordi is too perfect to be believable.
Again, I hope this doesn't offend you. She has potential, if only you don't make her so horribly perfect. I'd say rewrite her character with at least some sort of flaw, and she'd be a lot better.

Author's Response: I have to giggle at this, not in an effort to offend you, but because that's exactly what Beth said when she rejected the story for the first time. I'm not offended in the slightest. I'll tell you exactly wat I told her. This is a series about Charlie and Cordi. She is meant to come off as a Mary Sue in this first bit in order to show the difference between how Charlie perceives her when they first meet and how he truly finds her to be as they get to know each other and fall in love.

Just to set the record straight, Cordi has many flaws. She is incredibly clumsy. She cannot ask for or acccept help, and she is stubborn about it to a fault. While she is beautiful, she only sees her beauty as a hinderance. She refuses to believe that people see her as anything more than just a pretty face. She is intelligent, but also dedicated and hardworking, all of which is lost when people see how pretty she is. Her family has given her a certain role to fill, which is not even close to what she wants for herself, so she is torn between fulfilling her role as the "proper witch" and being the person she truly wants to be.

I am hoping that, if you continue to read the short stories in the series, you will see Cordi grow and her flaws will be exposed as Charlie comes to terms with who she really is.

After all, when you first meet someone, don't you try to put your best foot forward? It is only through getting to know the person that you see who they really are.

This first part is told from Charlie's point of view, with Charlie's thoughts and feelings. The second part is told from Cordi's point of view and might be more believable for you.

Stick around, you might like where this goes. :)

Absolutely wonderful! I liked seeing that side of Charlie; clumsy, awkward, head of heels in love. Cordi suits him well. I like how it ends, the promise of soon! Looking forward to the rest! Fabulous job!!!!!!!!
