Chapter: Witch Hunt

You don't see many historical fics around like this, and it was really well-written. It's an interesting concept, and you pulled it off excellently. I liked Widow, she was a great example of what witch-hunters were probably looking for back then.
I laughed when I saw the name Potter. You really love them, don't you?

Author's Response: Aw, thanks! It's not often I get reviews for this one, so double thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! I didn't really pick the Potters because their descendant would be James (although, now you mention it ...) I mostly picked them because I know they're an old wizarding family which is mostly pureblood, as far as we know. They just seemed the obvious choice, really. But in answer to your question ... I guess I do. =D

Tee hee indeed! I absolutely adore this! Oh, I LOVE Widow Thompson! *laughs* Oswald Ibbot... ha... honestly, what a crazy name! Wonderful humor! The vicar is great, too... "Actually, I don't believe we've met." Hehe... The characters are all fanstastic! Bravo, bravissimo! I'm SO adding this to my favorites! *chuckle*

Author's Response: Yay! I'm really glad you liked it, thank you so much! *hugs* I can't actually remember how I thought of the name Oswald Ibbot, it must have been one of those really random moments ... Thanks for reviewing this fic!

Chapter: Witch Hunt

Absolutely wonderful. It has been a long time since I was in a history class, but I hear a lot now from my sons. The witch-hunts were amazingly easy to enact. It all had to do with the education of the people and the trust they had in the church.
I had never wanted anything more than to go back in time and burn the hunters, as I did when I learned about it in school.
You did a great job on the mentality of the hunter, but the speech was a little off. If I remember correctly the speech of the times was more formal.
Other than that one criticism, I think you really did a good job.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad. As I've said, the extent of my research was basically those one or two history classes, so I was mostly guessing with the speech. Still, I did my best, and I'm glad you enjoyed it despite that fault ... Thanks so much for the review!

THAT WAS BRILLIANT. Are you quite sure you're as young as you claim?? Sorry, not to be ageist, but DAMN that's some good writing. All your fics are wonderfully well-written - and funny - and totally in character for the canon characters - and completely engaging. I'm a fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you. I'm definitely fifteen, I swear. And about nine months. I guess I've just had a lot of practise! Thanks so much, I'm glad you're a fan of my writing! And also that you chose this one to review, since it's the neediest ... Thanks very much, that really made my night!

Chapter: Witch Hunt

Thanks! This was a fun read, but also a litttle scary and suspenseful. I like how you got the potters and the widow and the vicar together to talk things over. It added to the feeling of bewilderment and panic with each fof them trying to think of a way to stop Stopkins. Also, I like the part where Marjorie bridled at Stopkins' anti-woman comments.

I think you hit the tone of the time very well too. Marjorie sounded, I thought, like a goodwife of that age.

Author's Response: Thanks very much for reviewing this! I don't often get many for this fic, so I appreciate you taking the time. I'm glad you thought I'd captured the tone, because I was a little worried about doing a historical fic, so thank you very much!

Chapter: Witch Hunt

Hilarious, I loved this story, especially Widow Thompson.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked her! She's a good old cantankeroud widow, it was fun to fight. Thanks for your review.

Author's Response: My word, I just noticed the hideousness of that middle sentence. It's supposed to say: "She's a good old cantankerouS widow, it was fun to WRITE." Excuse my awful typo problem.

Chapter: Witch Hunt

Wow! This is really good! You sure know a lot about the Witch Hunt, becuase I read a book on Salem Witch trials, and you said some of the things did.

I love how you made the Characters. One's happy, ones Accusatory (Sp?). One's a little on the nervous side, and all in between. Nice!

“You are the Devil’s servants!” Stopkins rasped, as he choked. “Get your witch hands of me!” He swung his hand, which collided with Richard’s head, who fell and let him go in surprise at this sudden unexpected move.

Don't you mean "Get your witch's hands off me"? You said 'of'.

Overall, nice story!

Author's Response: Thanks for pointing that out, you were perfectly right - it's all done and corrected now. And if I got a lot of the history stuff right, that's a credit to my wonderful history teacher, she's great. Microsoft Word says you spelt accusatory right, so congratulations on that count. Thanks so much for reviewing this, I'm glad you liked it!

Great fic by the way! Mwahaha take that, Matthew Stopkins! Not so cocky now, aren't you?

Author's Response: Exactly, my friend. Exactly. Hooray, history buddies!

Chapter: Witch Hunt

It was so realistic! Well, I don't mean history wise. With history I haven't a clue... But the way you had Marjorie panic and Obliviate him, that was real emotion. These Potter's wouldn't by any chance be related to our dear Harry, would they?

I really loved Widow, it would be really cool if you wrote an off-shoot just about her. Actually an off-shoot about all of the main characters in this would be interesting. I'm sort of shocked you managed to make a story about witch trials funny. Well it wasn’t in your face funny, but it was… Witty.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you found it realistic (and about the history thing, like I said, it's as accurate as I could manage with my slightly limited knowledge). An off-shoot would be cool. Maybe I'll give it a go one day, but for now I have way too many ideas cooking on my back burner. I'm also glad you found this witty, it's nice to know I can pull that off. Of course, we must remember that innocent people really did die ... *shudder*
