A good chapter. I translated online "La Tęte Du Porc" and got "Her Tte Any Hog" which makes no sense. What did you have it as? I think I spotted a typo in "oesophagus" as well, unless it's a body part I'm unaware of, which is completely reasonable to guess. If i didn't say in another review, I like your portrayal of Aberforth, especially as you can be even more accurate after hearing him in the book. 10/10

Author's Response: La Tęte Du Porc is bad pidgeon French for "The Hog's Head." It's not supposed to be grammatically correct, 'cause Aberforth can't speak French, either!
Mmm... I don't know if 'oesophagus' is a real word.. but British English tends to put the letter 'o' in front of every 'e' word, like 'oestrogen' and 'diarrhoea,' so I figured I might as well stick and 'o' in front of it.
Aberforth is one of my favourite characters to write. I started writing this story after DH, and I don't think I would have even thought about putting Aberforth into the story if it weren't for that book. He's so awesome in DH...

Even though it's not a humor fic, this chapter cracked me up into a million pieces!

Author's Response: Thanks! I did seriously consider putting it in the humour category... but then I decided to stick it here, because Marauder stories are expected to be funny anyway, and this story is too different from The Dark Lord's Blog for me to put it in humour.

Wait- why does nobuddy trust Lily? i dont get that... i just might be dumb, of course ^_^... i love how james has the attention span of a fish- its hilarious! i wish Lily would tell him whats wrong... and i think he's the Phoenix... or your just making it seem like that so everyone gets the wrong impression... or it really is him and you just want everyone to get all confused... anyways, cant wait for next chappie!

Author's Response: No one trusts Lily because they know it's because of her that Mary MacDonald died, though they're not about to confront her with that. And she doesn't know they know, so she hasn't told them that Snape tricked her.
As for James... you shalll seeee!

Author's Response: Incidentally, when I write James in this story, I imagine Van (dimwitted teenaged husband) from the TV show "Reba."

Great fic! I love your characterization. Poor Lily.

Author's Response: Thanks! I do feel sorry for Lily.

I liked it. Two things: Ogg. Who is he? Is it referencing the gamekeeper in Molly Weasley's Hogwarts career? Or something out of The Scarlet Pimpernel?
Two: The name Balthazar. Where did you get it? There's a great series with a character named Balthazar. It's calledThe Death Gate Cycle. I highly reccomend it. 10/10

Author's Response: Well, Ogg is a random last name I picked, but it's also a Discworld reference... because the next chapter has a song called "A Wizard's Staff Has A Knob On The End" from Discworld, and it's sung by a character named Mrs. Ogg. And in this story, James sings it at the Oggs' party... myesss...
I got the name Balthazar from a short film by Neil Cicierega (Potter Puppet Pals guy) and Ryan Murphy called "Balthazar the Elephant," which I find terribly hilarious, though James's whole speech about 'cool names' came from Smosh.

HAHA!!!!! heh, i had an idea that this whole James-is-nuts is just a side plot and really has nothing to do with the story, and the reason James is nuts will be, like, the last thing in the story. but this chapter proved me wrong. it gave me chills to read about his icy glare. i think james suspects lily, like everyone else. i was like "no lily, dont do that! it eeeevvvvvvviiiiiiilllllllll!!!!!!!!!!" when she made her plan. GO REMUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! id better stop rambling now. Love a duck!

Author's Response: Thank you! Remus is teh awesome, yesss? As for your theory... well, you shall see! (I feel bad for Lils, though.)

This is such a fantastic fic! I haven't read "the Scarlet Pimpernel" in such a long time, and haven't seen the movie in longer. Now I don't know whether I want to go check out the Scarlet Pimpernel book or reread all the HP books again.

Is "Love a Duck" the Phoenix-version of "Sync Me"?

Author's Response: Fwahahaha, thank you! "Love a duck" is indeed the equivalent of Sink Me/Odd's Fish/Odd's my life/Lud love me/take your pick. (Don't you love Blakeney-isms?)

i didnt like this at first, but now i do! i think james& sirius r abit OOC, but i dunno... cant wait for chap.4 !!!

Author's Response: Oh, good, I'm glad you like it now! James and Sirius are OOC because... well... *giggles* there's actually a reason for it, but I don't want to give away the plot. I'll just say for now that they don't trust Lily.

that shaving cream song....best song ever. *here is an award for miss. impaler, for comming up with the best song ever about shaving cream*

Author's Response: Hmmm... thank you... but I didn't make up the song, I'm afraid. It's a Boy Scout song. This is what I get for having a Boy Scout brother.

*shakes head*

It's not in my Bulk Folder. Maybe you typed the address wrong? If yo ulost it, just PM me and I'll resend my address.

NOTSPAM: This was such an original idea for a fic!

- Katie

Author's Response: Hmmmm... *strokes chin* I'll try to send it again in a few minutes from my own email address and see what happens.

Name: harrypotterfangirl21 (Signed) · Date: 11/02/07 5:43 · For: Chapter 4: In Which Lily Gets, If Possible, Even More Irritated
Um, no, you didn't send this one to me, I'm afraid.

Of course I'll still beta it! I'm not *that* evil, you know.

NOT SPAM: Love this fic! Can't wait for Chapter 4!

- Katie

Author's Response: Are you sure?? I sent one about a week ago with the subject line "I'm sending this from my dad's email address" because mine wasn't working. Maybe your compooter blocked it as spam?

Name: harrypotterfangirl21 (Signed) · Date: 11/01/07 23:32 · For: Chapter 4: In Which Lily Gets, If Possible, Even More Irritated
I hate to submit a review on an unvalidated chapter, but...

You know, if you didn't want me to beta this anymore, you could have just said so. It wouldn't have hurt my pride (and feelings) as much.

- Katie

Author's Response: I'm sorry! I forgot whether or not I sent it to you! (Did I?) I was just thinking, "Oh, Long Distance Extendable Ears and Lord Voldemort the Musical are accepted... might as well submit something new now that the queue is cleared. Ooh, I'm done with the next chapter of Love a Duck, might as well submit that."

If the chapter is accepted, can you still beta it so I can edit it and make my chapter better?

would that be an african swallow or european swallow...or 2 carrying it together...hmmmm

ah, a "billowing cloak of darkness" I think I need one...i've always been jealous of snape's and how he gets to stalk around being all menacing and billowy ...on to chapter 2!

Author's Response: Hahahaha, you've caught my reference! I hope you like Chapter 2.

hehe i like the way that guy whose name starts with an E *blushes* talks!

Author's Response: Erasmus? Weird name, yes. Sometimes I have to think hard to remember it, and I invented him! It's insanely fun to make up his dialogue, though. Oh, and thank you for all of your reviews! They were much appreciated!

Name: James Jameson (Signed) · Date: 10/27/07 20:47 · For: Chapter 2: In Which No One's Actually French Or Happy
OMG! the shaving cream song is my all time favourite! just like Magalinahagalinaoopatakawakatakaoakanoakapoaka! (that's actually a song! its quite funny actuallly!)

PS: French translation from someone who DOES speak french... *La Tete du Porc a l'engrais* with all the accents.

Author's Response: Hooray for actual real French! *Blushes* And I can't believe you actually know the Shaving Cream Song! The song with the ridiculously long name sounds familiar... I probably heard it somewhere... *strokes chin*

haha! keep at it! this sounds interesante!

Author's Response: I definitely will! Thanks!

Oooh, poor Lily! But I hope she doesn't betray the Phoenix. I'm sure she'll think of something to do without losing any lives. I also hope her marriage works out...

Author's Response: Yeah, I feel really sorry for Lily. I'm not sure what I'd do in her place.

Cool. I meant cool, not ... uh ... "Coo." That would have been VERY strange. =D *Note to self ... PROOF READ MORE!*

I have Lily's writer's conscience. =D And Snapes dot obsession ...

Author's Response: Ah. I just thought you were being gangsta when you said 'coo.' Yes, dots are my friends... aaaagh, I just did some right there! I overuse those, parentheses, run-on sentences, and CAPS LOCK, and I've somehow managed to make fun of all of those in my fics. *Shrug*
