This was very funny! Light-hearted and sweet. Even from the small bit written of the muggle Prime Minister in HBP, you managed to make him sound very canon.

I loved Annabel's character. Very brat-like and selfish, which is perfect for the Prime Ministers daughter.

It was written in a different style to most fics, and I really liked it. The short sentences and the way you made it sound as if you were telling it out loud was great.

Excellent work!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for this wonderful review! I can't believe I only just found it - over 6 months late! Shows how much I visit this account, lol.rnAnyway, I'm glad you like the characters! Yes, it's a different style to anything else I've ever done, too, so I'm glad it worked.rnThanks HEAPS again! :D :D

Quite amusing. It was good for a few chuckles, and I'm glad that this story is on an awesome site like MNFF!

Good job in maintaining the casual humour. Your language and tone didn't sound serious, which, I feel, is perfect for this kind of story.

I like the characterisation of the Muggle PM and his little niece. The Prime Minister sounded just like he does in canon, and you've shown his pompous and flamboyant side in only a few amusing sentences. As for Annabel, she sounds like a cute six-year-old: funny and realistic at the same time.

The last scene was an unusual, yet entertaining portrayal. I laughed out loud when Teacup bit her. Overall, this is a really cute fic, I loved it!

However, I did notice some formatting errors, which made it a little tough to read. Otherwise, I didn't find any technical errors - it's good to read meticulously edited fics.


Author's Response: Hi, Mini! I got a MUCH better response for this on MNFF than, which is cool. I've never written anything like this before, but I had fun trying out a different writing style rather than copying JKR's writing style like I've been doing in my other fic. Yeah, this definitely wasn't serious! It was a random idea that popped into my head ages ago just when I was falling asleep. I thought, 'hmm, that could be fun to write!' and then zonked out. But I remembered it in the morning, luckily. The PM reminds me of a character in a book I read when I was little, where you sort of get the impression he's not hugely intelligent and takes childish pleasure in a lot of things most mature adults wouldn't even notice. It's been annoying me because I can't remember which book is was! Might've been a Roald Dahl... that's going to bug me even more now :) Annabel sounds cute? Whoops. That wasn't meant to happen! She was supposed to sound like a spoilt brat. Oh well. As long as you like her! I think the Teacup-biting-her-and-getting-thrown-across-the-room-thing was really similar to when Scabbers bit Goyle and was thrown into the window on the Hogwarts Express. I only realised that a while after I posted. Probably it was lurking in my subconscious somewhere. Formatting errors? Oh dear. I'm not quite used to MMFF yet. Is there any way of editing stuff after you've posted? And yeah ... meticulously edited is right. I take a lot more care on this site than, seeing as it's so irritating when you send it to moderators and it isn't accepted. Thanks for such a detailed review! That really made me very happy, and seeing as I've been feeling slightly blue all today it was JUST what I needed!

Author's Response: I know, I swear if the Muggles knew what wizards did to cute furry animals they would be met with an tidal wave of disapproval from animal rights activists all over the world...
