Loooved it!! b29; I've always thought Harry/Katie would be a cute couple - and I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thinks so!! I thought it was a very cute story - you definitely should write more of this couple. I'd definitely read it :)

What a great story! I have not read many OC fanfics but this one was quite enjoyable.

I think my favorurite part about the way you wrote this was the way that you brought the reader into Katie's thoughts and saw her inner turmoil. It was plain to see that she liked Harry but it was SO amusing to "listen" to her talk herself out of those feelings!

[B][I]She blames it long hours at work making her hallucinate, pretending that hallucinations include daydreams, night dreams, afternoon dreams... she's getting off track again, yes she is. Think about different things. Like this beautiful plate they're serving her dinner on. It's lovely and black and shiny. Like Harry's hair.

Oh, bother.[/B][/I]

This was one of my favorite parts. We've all been there and you describe her thoughts running away with her perfectly!

I do have one minor correction though I have not read the other reviews so I am not sure if it's alreeady been brought up:

[I]She blames it long hours at work making her hallucinate[/I]

Should it be "blames it ON long hours?"

I hope my tags are working, otherwise this post will be a mess.

Thanks for writing such a pleasant story.

I’m very impressed, once again, with this story. I remember reading A Seed From the Ground and being so impressed with your grasp of language, word choice, and sheer skill at writing. Those thoughts were definitely brought back while I was reading this.

I quite liked the self-denial that Katie has going on throughout her little, internal monologue. It was very fun for me to read. Although we don’t really see much of Katie in the books, this seemed to capture what I had imagined of her personality. She is, obviously, a girl, but with a touch of the tom-boy attitude and a desire not to lose control of herself. The part where she reflects on what she would have told Wood (heh, that rhymed!) and the resignation part really emphasized the fact that Katie isn’t some Cho-ish Mary-Sue, who sits around mooning over guys. Katie’s tougher and a little more independent and I liked that quite a bit.

It’s also difficult (for me, at least) to resist anything with Fred and George acting like their impish selves. The love potion that’s not quite a love potion was a really nice touch – I think that it’s definitely something that they would have developed and perhaps marketed in their “Wonder Witch” section. Or perhaps kept under lock and key in the back. I’ve yet to make up my mind.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this – great job!

It was water. Or at least some form of!

That was a great story. It was written in a very amusing tone (to the reader, not to poor Katie) and was a light and fluffy fic.

Now it may be just me but I think you could have elongated it even for a one shot. Perhaps a little back story about what happened to Ginny during the war or why Harry's single at the moment.

Other then that, great fic. I've never seen this paring before. *solutes you on a job well done*=Sammy

I rather liked this story with Harry/Katie Bell. I haven't read that many fics in which Harry is paired with anyone other than Ginny, Hermione, or Luna that really get my attention. However, I like how you have Katie struggling with the decision to pursue Harry at all. It's a good inner struggle in which she keeps seeing him as a small child, and it's obvious that she's torn.

I particularly thought this line was great: He's Harry, little Harry the Seeker who was small and stubby and cute in the same way your stuffed animal is cute. Cuddle it, maybe, but certainly not something you ponder having long petting sessions with.

Very well-written.
I also thought that the input of the Twins was great! Lol. How devious! They should really have been in Slytherin.

Great job.

That was a very creative plot line. I haven’t seem much Harry/Katie around here, and I must say that I really liked the way you wrote it.

I was very impressed at how you kept the characters in character at all times, which I think is very hard to do with Harry. I was also impressed that you wrote in the present tense, and that you wrote WELL in present tense, as I think that present tense is very hard to pull off.

I loved how you wrote Katie’s thoughts at the beginning. I felt that she really saw Harry for Harry, and not as the hero who saved the Wizarding world. If these characters were real, this would definitely be an important aspect of their relationship, which helped make the scene all the more realistic.

He's Harry, little Harry the Seeker who was small and stubby and cute in the same way your stuffed animal is cute.

I really liked how this description was written. It shows another aspect that makes Harry and Katie’s relationship seem extremely real. It also reminded me a bit of how Harry kept trying to convince himself that his feelings for Ginny were brotherly in the beginning of HBP.

All in all, I’m very impressed at how well you wrote this ship. Well done!

I have more to add! To my other review...

‘Boy Who Lived. Or Lives. Or Defeated. Whatever it is at the moment, but she's not really thinking about that sort of thing.’

I liked this bit. It really shows the how the whole news hype about Harry doesn’t affect her, and that she likes him for who he is. Someone like that is always nice to have, and Harry needs someone like that. It also shows the whole fickleness of the newspapers, that run whatever it is they think their readers will like.

I also love the whole ‘spiked water thing. It would be something the twins would do, and I often wonder myself in the real world if there’s something in the water when everyone starts to act all odd and funny. XD

Also, at the end, I like how it all ties in nicely with the title, and the entire story. ^^ And that it really was the twins. If only we had something like that in the real world. :P

I always found Harry/Katie a bit odd and out there, but I do like this. It's cute. :)

I like how you describe Katie's reactions, and the spilling water on herself. It's so simple, yet it makes it seem all the more real and plausible.

All the characters seem very in character, and you've written this in present tense. I applaud you. Writing in all present tense can be quite a challenge at times. :)

Also, at the end, I like how it all ties in nicely with the title, and the entire story.
