Hehehe! Enjoyable like incredibly few one shots are!! You are ge.ni.al!
That's Spanish for genious! ;)
Author's Response: *grins* Thank you so much, dear.
Funny and sweet!! Shows that Sissy also had a life of her own and didn't think much of Malfoy first. Great!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! :)
Interesting word now I know it!
Author's Response: LOL, I'm glad I was able to teach you a new word -- Cissy knows it very well now too. ;D Thanks for reviewing!
Very cute. Everyone was perfectly in-character, and I love the word :D. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! :D
I love how the characters are portrayed... I think this is probably exactly what they were like during the Marauder era. =)
And that's a really fun word to say, lol.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Yeah, it is a fun word, huh? :D
Author's Response: Yay! Thanks! :D
That was really kind of cute and funny. I think you hit the character of snape quite on. I think Narcissa is that much of an airhead though. Oh well. Good job. I still like it.
Author's Response: :D I'm glad you liked this. Thanks for the nice review!
Anna, this is positively adorable! Where do you come up with these things? It’s so rarely that we see any of these characters in a light piece and you have managed to include them as though they truly belong there. Not once did I see even a hint of OCCness, which is usually present in these types of stories when using these types of characters. As always, you have handled your story and the characters marvelously.
“I don’t know, but I wasn’t about to let him get away with saying it,” she told me firmly. “I know this much: that kid is a blood-traitor, a nasty piece of work, and a moron. In addition to that, his expression was so vile I just knew he wasn’t paying you a compliment.”
I loved this! It’s exactly what I would picture Bella to be like while she was at school. As you know, I think she’s a much softer side, but she would never show it in public and Hogwarts. I loved the way she attacked the kid, without having the faintest idea what he had said. She is always impulsive and reckless. This was perfect Bella. :D
But I was a young lady Black. I was quite above doing work myself.
I think it should be: But I was a young, Black lady.
Other than that I adored this. You have managed to sum up a good portion of Narcissa’s character in two short lines. She thinks herself far superior because of her name and heritage, and she is not about to let anyone forget that. Very well done.
“It would be interesting to know whether they were calling the potion a foolish and scatterbrained gossiper, or Slughorn.”
Again, perfect characterization. This sounds exactly like Snape. Right away, he knew that Narcissa was lying to him; however, he chose to let her dig herself in deeper, smirking all the while. This is just what the Snape we know and love would do.
And by the way, this piece was hilarious. I think this is the first time I have read your attempt at humor. You are very good with it. I found myself laughing out loud more than once while reading this. Very impressive, indeed.
Keep writing, Anna, because you truly have a gift.
Author's Response: Wow, what a lovely and detailed review -- it's nearly as long as the story itself! :D Thank you so much for all of your comments, Elle, and I'm glad you liked the plot and characterizations and such. And the humor, because I wasn't sure it came through until all this feedback! :) Anyway, thanks again!!
I loved that you wrote this in Narcissa's POV. It gives me and the readers some great insight to her feelings during the whole fic. It's amazing how you wrote her to be so high minded yet so stupid at the same time.
You did an amazing job of keeping Snape in character. I loved how you had him stare her down, as if he were using Legilimens to read her thoughts. Then, it was a truly a Snapish reaction when he caught her in the lie. Very well done.
I also loved how you ended the story too. It just goes to show that Narcissa would rather save face in front of her friends instead of letting others continue to make a fool out her.
It was enjoyable to read.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review. I had a lot of fun with this story, with both Narcissa and Severus. :D
I adore the random-ness of this story. It seems like such an 'out there' topic to write a one-shot on, but you tied it together wonderfully. This was an interesting glance into how Severus and Narcissa interacted with everyone in Slytherin.
My favorite part of this story was in the beginning, while Bellatrix defended Narcissa, even though she didn't know what she was defending Narcissa from. I thought it was a good piece of insight of their relationship.
Also, I enjoyed your characterisation of Severus. I've always found him a difficult character to right, but you portrayed him perfectly in the situation. I marveled at his stoic-like attitude, despite Narcissa's various efforts to gain the definition.
Overall, wonderful one-shot!
Author's Response: :D I got the idea for this story from a challenge on another site, which was to *randomly* pick a word from one of dictionary.com's past 'word of the day's. This word popped up, and a random bunny was born. ;)
I'm glad you liked Narcissa and Bellatrix's *brief* interaction, and Severus' portrayal. I love writing about Sevy. :D Thanks for the nice review!
Hah! It's just so fun to mess around with Narcissa, isn't it? Good job.
Author's Response: Heehee, yes, I did like messing around with Narcissa in this story. Thanks for the nice review! :D
He, he - put her in her place Severus! Dumb, blonde, gossiping scatterbrain....
Loved it - great work!
Author's Response: Teehee, yes, he certainly did. Thanks so much! :)
That was really random (in a good way). I love the ending.
Author's Response: *giggles* Yes, it was random. Glad you liked it, thanks for the review. :D
