I know they mention Athelas in LOTR, Fellow of the Ring. It is the plant that Stryder thinks will slow the poison Frodo got when stabbed by the Witch King of Angmar on Weathertop.

Author's Response: Yupyup!

I liked this little vittle. Too bad it was a one shot, this story has the potential to get a lot of people laughing and talking about what the owls "really" do when we don't see them in the story.

Author's Response: Well, today is a lucky one because the holidays started!!! (im in AussieLand) So I'm gonna be starting on a sequel tomorrow. Its gonna be about P+H's love being discoverd and what happens after ;)
I'm glad i got this review today...

Author's Response: Yes!! Congratulations, you are the first to get it =D

When the black breath blows
and death's shadow grows
and all lights pass,
come athelas! come athelas!
Life to the dying
In the King's hand lying!

Oh my gosh!!!!


I first discovered the link to this in a "Fanon Ships" thread over in the beta boards, and boy am I glad I did!


This is absolutely hilarious! I'm a huge fan of weird/cute fics (heck, I have a Luna/House Elf fic!) and this one just has to take the cake. It's insanely adorable, and just... *squee*


Okay, I'm done now. =) Great job... Any chance of a sequel?

PS-I know what "twitterpated" is. xD

Author's Response: OMG!!! there is a link in the forums???? I had no idea! *equally squee* I have to check that out Now. omg.

k, getting over that, I'm so glad that you like it! I'm planning a sequel/prequel/havent decided yetsometime in the next few months, so keep you eyes open for that..

Oh, and i am going to have to check you fic out - Luna/House Elf? Tha is awesome :D

Very cute! I'm a sucker for forbidden love (my OTP is Draco/Ginny). I love how Hedwig teases Pig and how you portray their relationship as so much more mature than the "frenzied" students on Valentine's Day. I also just love the image of Hedwig sneaking around Harry's room with the Invisibility Cloak. Actually, it just occured to me that Pig and Hedwig in your story are very similar to Ron and Hermione in fanon. Maybe that's why I feel like there should be a little bit more backstory. For instance, (if I remember correctly) it seems like Hedwig and Pig meeting is very similar to Ron and Hermione meeting (Hedwig/Hermione is very uptight and proper and Ron/Pig is messy and chaotic). I think that a lot of this could be fixed by making it a little bit more obvious when this is taking place. (Is this in Harry's seventh year? Do Hedwig and Pig get together before Ron and Hermione or Harry and Ginny?) I'd really like to see what kinds of details that you come up, since you're obviously creative. I hope that you can answer my questions, even if you don't change the story. Thanks!

Author's Response: Gah!!! You struck upon my secret weapon!! Pig and Hedwig are (at least) partially based on R+H *grins*

RE: back story, i have alot of stuff inmy mind that may or may not ever make it in to a fanfic, but heres the basics - P+H meet at the end of PoA, hate each other immediately. Meet up again begining of GoF, gradually fall in love (the details are non existant at the moment). They realise that their owners (Ron an Harry) would probably react unusually if they found out about their affair and therefore decide to keep it a secret. This fic is set possibly around 7th year, Ron and Hermione are together (obviously), Harry and Ginny aren't, because of the events at the end of HBP. I dont know why Harry is at school, i have a feeling that the whole thing is a little AU...

Yeah, i've just decided that its AU. heh.. Sorry about my musing, im really tired :) Feel free to ask more questions, i'm always ready to try to answer them :D


Author's Response: ok, now i realise why nobody gets the password thing... I didn't include it when originally copy and pasting, GAH!

Dont worry peeps, its all fixed now, please go and check the new bit out (its kinda my favourite part)

What Password? lol love it. it is relly cute and sweeet.

Author's Response: lol, maybe i should make the password thing clearer... The password i mentioned is the word Athelas which Harry says to open up the Fat Lady's portrait at the beginning of the last part.

Thanks for the review!!!

Certainly one of the most interesting and unique pairings I've encounted in a long time! Writers come up with all sorts of pairings, but everyone always forgets our feathered friends.
I loved the brief characterization of Harry from Hedwig's perspective, and the description of Filch's nose.
The only criticism I have is that I wanted a bit more characterization of Mrs. Norris--she doesn't seem as fleshed out as everyone else.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and hope to see many more examples of your writing in the future.
Sincerely,
Doctor Phoenix of Ravenclaw, Knight of the Turnip Table

Author's Response: Thankyou!!! I'm so glad that veryone likes my ship - i was a little worried that some might not accept my fav feathered ship...

Anyway, RE: Mrs Norris, yeah, i know, my bad... I really don't like her and she was the hardest to write, (as hard as a 1000 word shortfic can get...) I was going to go over and rewrite, but i really couldn't stand her so i got lazy and.. uh.. didn't. *cough*

Sorry to Mrs Norris fans.... :(

Oh, how fun. Great Reading

You captured the insecurities and fears felt by so many as they face their love and the ramifications that love has for others.

It is a wonderful use of personificaion and on just the right day of the year.

The the image of them under the invisibility cloak is inspired.

Author's Response: Thank you so much!! *smiles*

Iím sorry it took so long, and thank you for your poignant reviews, cough. >.>.

No reaction Missing a period, dearie :D.

Iím smirking, Kali. I love how mischievous Hedwig is in this Ė itís kinda amazing, actually. I love how humanized she is when she freezes when Filch finds her. In addition, the thoughts are very typical of one Australian author, Iíve noticed. Even if the Saga wasnít accepted, this is gold. By the way, I think you should work on the Saga a little. I think it could be accepted in the near future.

Hee, I found another example that made me bust my gut: Ugh, she shuddered. The Human nose is a disgusting place... Kali. Youíre hilarious. I donít think ĎHumaní should be capitalised, though.

Suddenly the grey owl jumped forward and started preening Hedwig's feathers affectionately.

Pigwidgeon! Hedwig exclaimed, we can't, not here, not yet!

Kali, you seriously have me in stitches all the way through this. Again, I love the human personality youíve given Hedwig. Moreover, itís so cute Ė her personality, that is. I heart the verbs & other words that youíve used to describe her, and the way she perceives things. The word affectionate here is a great choice, itís like Pig is totally sucking up to her, and she wears the pants in the relationship. I can see her being slightly scandalised here :D.

What is there that I could say other than youíd have me rolling around on the ground laughing, were I not bogged down with a cold and the dust on my floor would aggravate my nose? Honestly, this line is a killer - They all think they are one flap from getting into your feathers. If there wasnít actually a romantic essence to this piece, aka Saga, I would definitely recommend this goes in the Humor category because itís so hilarious. Iíd suggest perhaps moving it there for the time being until word of mouth travels. I think youíd get a lot more reads & reviews that way, personally. Sometimes the thought of an odd romantic pairing throws people off. Weíll see, my sweet.

Oh. And I just realised I forgot to comment on this sentence. You expect, after writing such a story, for this review to be full of crack, donít you my fellow Miss Universe follower? Aside from that, hee, that line. Itís a crack up. This whole story is. I think I could quote pretty much every second line, and say afterwards that I thought it was great. But, I donít want to do that because I think that the whole story deserves a great big bolded HEE for your efforts. This brightened my bad day with the cold and all, so thank you for the persistent poking, dearie. Congratulations on such a successful story.




Author's Response: poignant? hehehe.... not rude and demanding? aww, Steph, you're so nice to me!!! *huggles*

Thanks for the Humour Section tip, I think i'll go with it, at least for a few months coz i guess "Other Pairings" is kinda a less-browsed-through section =p

LOL Miss Universe... is that how we first started talking, like a year ago? Seriously, you sent me an email on my birthday last year and it is my 18th on Monday, so WooT for an awesome year of fanfic friendship ^_^

Thankyou for the bolded HEE =D MAYBE, if there is a chapter of MI up soon, I MIGHT give you a Murgie's GOLD award... MAYBE *grins and giggles* I'm glad Rendezvous brightened your day (hope you are better soon) coz you review brightened my day!!

aww.. big fun mega happy times...

I loved this story. Your descriptions and turns of phrases are just so owlish that it astounds me!!! I particularly liked the "one flap away from getting into your feathers," and Hegwig's horrified reaction to the clandestine preening. You did really well with translating issues in human romances to owl culture, and I think you really showed a dynamic perspective that will encourage others to try and look at the books and HP world from eyes of other characters. :D Great job!

One thing I think you could fix is Hedwig's dialogue and personality. In canon, she utterly hates Pig. She won't share her cage with him, she thinks he's a bad owl, etc. I think she needs a little more bite to her - she can't be so soft and loving...

Or at least, you need to show the transition. "At first, she thought he was...but then, such and such happened, and she thinks he's lovely." You know what I mean?

I also would love to see some actual flirting from these school owls? I want to see what an owl pickup line is like! :p

If you ever want to expand this short little story a bit, you have a ton of direction you can go, and a lot of free room to create.

Nice job with the story!

Author's Response: Wow, what an awesme review!! With the Hedwid hating Pig thing, what i originally planned is that she had to pretend to hate him, to keep their secret, but i guess that doesn't come across very well. I'm writting a sequel/prequel (haven't decided yet) and i'll try to work that in to make it more obvious; thanks for pointing that out =D

Great story and very original. I have always thought Hedwig was underappreciated. Glad Pig pays attention to her. Can't wait to see more from you.

I think you've doen a good job of fleshing out their characters, and I have to laugh - hiding under Harry's cloak! I especially liked the part where Hedwig flew crazily around the room because she'd seen Pig doing that, right as he was thinking of doing it himself...

A very nice story indeed...

Author's Response: Thanks for reading :) Yeah, i had a lot of fun writing that part *grins*

"Suddenly the grey owl jumped forward and started preening Hedwig's feathers affectionately.

Pigwidgeon! Hedwig exclaimed, we can't, not here, not yet!"

That passage right there made the whole story! LOL! Too cute! Those two, who'd have thought? Good Job!
