Author's Response: Thank you very much. I probably sound genuine, because Lauren is modelled on a very good friend of mine. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!

really reallly cool! I can't wait. don't answer this if you don't want to, but what made you move to america?

Author's Response: I got married to a truly gorgeous American, who didn't really want to live in England. Now I am an American citizen, and I really love America. My children were born here, and I have tons of really fantastic friends. I am glad you like this story so far, and I am really pleased you are still reading it.

that was good! i'm so glad that luaren plays cello, because i play cello too!!!!! im glad that i can understand the muiscall terms, and i pity th people who can't. anyways, i want to find out if ben is a death eater.

Author's Response: I love the cello. I just took it up, and I am teaching myself the Suzuki method. I just got to book 4 - if that means anything to you! I haven't had any lessons though, so my technique is probably terrible, but I enjoy it tremendously. I think you have a chapter to go before you find out definitely about Ben! I am glad you are enjoying the story so much. What is your favourite piece on the cello?

are you british? you seem really familiar with london.

there is something creepy about ben. I don't trust him. and how did lauren know what ravenclaw looked like? and why does she look like her? I think this story is going to get creepy.

Author's Response: Actually, I am American - just got my citizenship - but I used to be British. As to the story getting creepy, you will have to wait and see. Thank you so much for reviewing!

this horcrux book kind of reminds me of the book of the dead in Sabriel by Garth Nix, just because of Lauren's reaction to it. that is really creative, with the horcrux in an instrument. that must be absolute hell to find and destroy though--I mean, how do you find the instrument, let alone reconstruct it if it was destroyed, and then play the song? and I just thought--does it just have to be the same song, or does it have to be exactly the same, like if whoever planted the horcrux made a mistake? does whoever is trying to evict the horcrux also have to make the same mistake?

I'm guessing the Royal acadamy is a music school, possibly comparable to something like julliard...?

I have a friend who's studying to be a professional musician, and she hardly ever stops practicing. i don't know if she'd take breaks to read, even for her best friend. I'm her best friend. I guess not all musicians are like that.

The bit about black socks reminds me of my school band. we always have that problem. are you a musician? you sound very familiar with the inner workings of putting together a concert.

Author's Response: I wondered about hat, and I did address it at one point, but then might have edited it out. After all, a ring can also be destroyed, and so can a locket. So could Nagini, come to that - if, of course Nagini is actualy a Horcrux. Perhaps things with Horcruxes in them are preserved from destruction in some way. So I stopped worrying too much about it. There are a few really good music colleges in England - the Royal Academy, the Royal College, the Royal Northern, the Guildhall and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. The London College of Music used to be good, but it ran out of money and was incorporated into Thames Valley University in Ealing. I used to play in an orchestra (viola) at college but I am trying the cello now, as my two children play violin and my husband plays viola (not professionally!). I have family members who are musicians though, so I am used to sitting around in draughty churches and dashing out to the nearest store to buy black socks! A lot of musicians practice all the time - it must be hard for you sometimes! However, maybe she would change her mind if she was helping you to overcome an evil overlord who wanted to destroy her! You will have to read the story to find out how Lauren does.

Chapter: Chapter 1: A Date with Ben

A lovely first chapter. Sorry this isn't going to be long as my first review. I enjoyed it emmensly but for some reason the Harry/OC possibilty rings sour with me. Perhaps I'm just a fan for characters to suffer. I think a little more information on how they integrated a muggle into their friendship would help, but I like the concept and the writing has a nice ring. I particularily liked the line about splitting yourself up into Dvorak. I personally would have one of my horacruxes be Schubert's Vocal Winterlese. Look foreward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Hi! Don't worry about the Harry O/C possibility. Ain't going to happen. On the other hand, I think if Harry is as good looking as the books imply, that she would notice. And I think there will be quite enough suffering for you as it goes on! But you have to get through the happy clappy part first. I did write another story to go with this one, and then decided to write more about the character, but I can't work out how to put them together as a series. Just dense, I suppose, everyone else manages it. If you want to read it, it is called "How I found My Best Friend Was a Witch." Did you mean Schubert's Winterreise? If so, what a wonderful choice. I used to sing it - before I had kids, and lost all my breath control, (even though my voice is more suited to French songs). I adore Schubert. If I had to do Horcruxes, they would probably all be musical, because I wouldn't be able to decide what to choose!
