Hilarious chapter, I loved how the prank at the lake turned into them all pushing each other into the lake. It's a good reminder that they're all still kids.
I felt bad for James and his boggart being exposed to the whole school, that by itself is close to his own fear.
The past 2 chapters have been great! I'm really excited to see where this is going.
Author's Response: Glad you like it! Stay tuned for more.
The boggart had me fooled. Good technique.
Author's Response: Oh! That makes me so happy! Thanks!
You must think that I've forgotten about this story! For some reason, my email didn't alert me for chapters 13 and 14, but it did for 15 for some reason. But I was happy because I had two additional chapters that I'd never read before plus ch. 15. I'm rambling.
Anyway, I'm so excited, Sirius is jealous about that Jonathon thing! It amazes me that Angelina remains oblivious (other then that passage about the uneasy silence and how she doesn't know how to respond when he's "sweet on her"). Can't wait to see how that plays out :P
Author's Response: Glad to hear you’re still reading! I hope you continue to enjoy. There’s more Angelina and Black to come. Stay tuned.
Glad you were able to update. Looking forward to more.
Author's Response: So happy to hear you like it. And the next chapter has been approved!
clever twist. I thought it seemed odd that Rudolphus didn't 'know' she had a Muggleborn friend, but didn't suspect this.
Author's Response: Well thank you! Hope you continue with the story, there are more twists to come.
That is a brilliant story, congratulations!
I love the relationships between all the characters, FuFu is very believable and sweet.
Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Hopefully the next chapter will be out soon. It all depends on how busy my poor, sweet beta is.
"Ravenclaw was down 0-5," should be 0-50. :)
Author's Response: Yes, it most certainly should! Thanks for the tip.
yh I'm just spectulating because you made a subtle point about him not touching the necklace. Just my random guess!
eurgh totally random but you have to see Mamma Mia! The soundtrack CD is great! lmao.
...I need to stop with the alcopops. :D:D
money money money always sunny in a rich mans world!
Author's Response: It was a great thought, and definitely an interesting concept for the future. Sorry I didn’t reply sooner, but I didn’t want to spoil it.
portkey? from black or potter! :P
Author's Response: Huh? What portkey? The necklace?
I just discovered this story today and I really like it! It was a little bit confusing in the earlier chapters only because you still have Emma called "Rain" in a few places, but other than that this story is very original and wonderful! Angelina is a very likeable character and I look forward to reading more about her. I always thought that Sirius liked her and the jewelry as a Christmas gift proves it! (Unless it's cursed or something, but I doubt it!). Keep up the great writing!
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you keep with it. And I appreciate the tip about the name confusion; I’ll try to look through and catch them.
Yay, another update! There haven't been any updates for the other stories in my favorites, so I can't really tell if it's just your story. I'm so glad Emma and Angelina are friends now. And all that info on her natural Occlumency, it was interesting! That was a nice twist on her being related to the Malfoys.
Author's Response: So glad you like.
It really seems like you're developing this story well with each chapter. It doesn't seem rushed and it doesn't drag either. Loved the small details you include that show that Angelina's views are changing (her resentment at the use of the word "mudblood".) She's becoming more and more likable as the story progresses.
I'm also very happy to see that you're finally getting more reviews. You deserve them; you've got a great story here!
Author's Response: You’re making me blush! Thanks.
Although I haven't gotten around to putting this story on my favorites (just discovered the story yesterday), I too have noticed that I don't get reminders when stories are updated. And sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get a new story in my favorites. But once it's in I do check in on them.
Keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to reading more.
Author's Response: Thanks for telling me about the update situation. Hope you will continue reading. Chapter 12 is in the queue (watch now that I said that it will get rejected).
Baking sheets. LOL
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed!
I am enjoying this story. Angelina's prejudices are well stated and challenged appropriately.
Author's Response: I try.
I like the story about the alchemist plant. Interesting magic.
One thing that you neglected to put in previous chapters (imo of course) is Angelina's parent's reaction or even the fact that they don't respond to her being in Ravenclaw. Granted earlier on, there was an indication that Rudolphus ignored her. It just seems odd that she doesn't think about her brothers or wonder what her parents are thinking.
Author's Response: This is a good point. The reason for their lack of presence is that Angelina has lived in France with her mother most of her life (I mention this in the first chapter and elude to it a few times but it appears from what you are saying I should develop this a bit more strongly). Thus her father and brothers are always more towards the back of her mind (as in would they approve if they heard, not that their there watching). Also, she is quit a bit younger than them, and tends to do her own things. Her mother, as previously revealed, is dead. However, as we will discover future on, the main relationships Angelina has had is with the house-elves that have had to take care of her. She wants to make her family proud and approve of her, but their rather cold and withholding and feel they have better things (and more important things) to deal with. I hope this explanation help, and I’ll try to keep the possible confusion in mind in the future and be more explicit. Thanks so much for all your lovely feedback!
One small note. You refer to the blond girl as Emma and later on all of a sudden her name is Rain. "but Rain continued, oblivious. If she has a nickname, she should have told Angelina when she introduced herself.
Author's Response: Sorry. “Rain” was Emma’s original name. I changed it, but must not have caught that one. Thanks!
Two spelling mistakes. perdiction--prediction. and wear should be where as in where you belong.
I like how she takes to the quill to write out her reasons to get into the Slytherin house.
Author's Response: Thanks for pointing those out! I really appreciate it.
This is the most original piece I've read about the Marauders on the first train ride to Hogwarts. Angelina is a well defined character. Her story should be interesting
Author's Response: So glad you like it! Hope you continue.
