Chapter: Apologies...and Patrick

Whoa, what a cliffie to leave us with. I'm loving this story, it's very nice to read more about the Hufflepuffs and as we don't know much about them there's a great opportunity for developing their characters. Eloise sounds like a really nice person, I'm glad she's got some good friends. James seems nice, can't wait to see what happens there. Oh and in HBP don't the Weasley twins have a guaranteed ten second pimple vanisher for sale in their shop, wouldn't that help Eloise? Perhaps someone could give her some for her birthday. The bedroom of requirement sounded wonderful, wish i was there right now. Anyway, please update again soon.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you! As you probably noticed, it's been quite some time since I last updated, so it's nice to see a shiny new review! I'm really glad you like my story so far...I think the bedroom of requirement is probably one of my favorite 'places' in my story. :) And I'll consider the Weasleys--I haven't decided which of two plotlines I'm going to go with. Anyway, I don't quite know when I'll be able to update, but hopefully it will be soon! I've been very busy with summer stuff. :) Thanks again for the review!

Chapter: Moving Up

You've kept Snape very true to his character in this chapter.
Some of his comments are quite funny like the one below.

"Time's up! Put your potion in a vial if it is... possible to do so," Snape sneered at a short Hufflepuff who was staring at his cauldron in dismay-- his potion had vanished when he added the last ingredient.

Author's Response: Thanks so much...I really love Snape as a character, and I did my best--I'm glad you liked it!

Author's Response: The similarity wasn't intentional, but now that you mention it.... Yeah, he is kind of like James Potter!

mature reaction from Marietta. Interesting dream.

Author's Response: Thank you, thank you! The dream... well, I can't say anything about the dream.

Chapter: Hangman and Gossip

The rumors and accusations do sound appropriately juvenile and yet serious enough to upset Marietta.

Author's Response: Why thank you! That was just what I was going for.

Chapter: You Need to Know

too much mystery about James Knight. Is he older or younger since he most likely isn't the same age?

Regarding Moody "The incantation for the Cruciatus Curse is Crucio, and I'm not telling you this so you can try it out on your enemies. Every one of you could point your wands at me and say 'Avada Kedavra' and I wouldn't get so much as a scratch- " I think you should have said and "say Crucio and I wouldn't feel a pinprick" because at that point Moody is talking about the Cruciatus Curse not the killing Curse. It would still convey the idea that using the Unforgivables require incredible power.

When you move on to the Imperious Curse should note that Moody ignores the spiders and practices directly on each student. Or do the Imperious Curse first on the students and have only two spiders. (If Moody has three spiders then he should also do the Imperious on the third spider before doing on the students)

When talking about the Avada Kedavra you should make a new paragraph.

Author's Response: James is a year older than Eloise. About your second comment--oops. I feel very silly. I have no idea why I wrote that. I must have been exhausted at the time. Thanks for the review!

Chapter: Moving Up

I like how you put the canon events in as something to talk about.

I like Snape snide explanation as to why he deducted two points from Hufflepuff.

The end of the chapter is interesting where Eloise notes that someone other than Marietta talks to her as a normal person. I would assume this has happened before but this is the first time she has noticed it.

Author's Response: Well, my thinking is that people have talked to Eloise before, but never as a friend--only to ask a question or something like that.Thanks for the review!

Chapter: Bubotuber Pus

I'm doing a reread of this story. I already read up to chap 8. I think either in this chapter or the last, you should have stated what year Eloise was in. Later on it becomes obvious that this is the fourth year of both Eloise and Harry.

The other thing is that you are not following canon. I am nitpicking but allow me to explain. The Herbology class with the Gryffindors was on the first day of school and yet you had the Hogsmeade weekend being the following Saturday. Usually those weekends don't happen until October. But later on in a future chapter you make reference to the fact that they had never had a class with Prof Moody. The point I'm making isn't that you have to follow canon, (I don't have a problem with Hogsmeade being in Sept) but that this story in the first chapter needed to have a better sense of time. Maybe just a couple of sentences reflecting that this was the start of Eloise's fourth year and that maybe things would be different with Ron and the other roommates who continually hurt her.

Although I can accept Ron being a git, I don't think Prof Sprout would actually say something against one her students like that. Maybe what you should have done was have Sprout send Eloise to go to another greenhouse to get something for her (because she was finished with extracting the bobertuber pus alot faster than the other students). When she came back she overheard Sprout's comments through closed doors and Ron's comments happened after she came back.

Author's Response: True, true... You make very good points. I will try to edit my story when I have time to have it make more sense. Thanks for the constructive criticism!
