Peals before swine!!!
Hermione Charms teacher!!! Soo fitting...
Now, don't you tell me, Janus will be fired too. That'd be just soo perfect!!
So, let me guess? The agreement says she can't "see" Callie, but there's nothing about teaching her, right? PERFECTO!!!!!
Poor Professor Flitwik... :( He's one of my very faves, you know... I'm soo saw she had to go...
Will Hermione get a suitor anytime soon? Someone our lovely soon-to-be dynamic duo will have to dispose of????? Maybe this Julius guy? Or perhaps we'll have a cameo of Viktor?
^_^ Spellbound by this bewitching piece of creative writing!!! XOXO
I think Callie and Lia are the perfect mix!!
^_^ The plot thickens... The Hermione Granger Fund... Interesting. Wonder who's the mastermind behind that one!
And Draco and Pansy! That scene between them was awesome!!! Pansy acting all annoyed but still going with the flow...
Can't picture Draco in a cottage either, BTW!
Uhm... the "frictions" are amusing actually!! Kia and Nelly don't seem to get along, I wonder if there's a chance that'll change or they're doomed to continue with the trademark Gryffindor-Slytherin archrivalry.. tun tun tun tun... Only time will tell.
I'm more concerned about Lia's determination of telling her "half" sister about her alledgedly unholy conception... *shudders* That's bound to get violent....
I've alrealy used brilliant too many times. So this time I'll go with ripping!!! The chapter, I mean!!! Kuddos!
That wasa tad short.... But filled qith data...
Draco was a bit obvious on his partiality towards Maura Granger, wasn't he?
I REALLY want the girls to meet!!
And, obviously, I'm of to read one more chap, before bed! If I'm sleepy tomorrow at work, I'll blame it on your great writing!! Tut-tut, shame on you... LOL!!!
This chapter was absolutely brilliant!!! I addored it!!
Bet I sound a bit monotonous right?
Anyhow... I had a feeling Lia would end up in Slytherin and Callie in Gryffindor. My only doubt was caused by Callie's words earlier about wanting to give Slytherin back its old glory... But then, Lia is the one with the blatant taste for rule bending, I can tell.
They made their second friend... Kia and Lizzy/Nelly. And they got swapped, too. I smell a quartet of lovely skunky first-years in the mix!! And the smell is as good as that of s'mores!! (BTW, I couldn't wait for you to tell us, I googled s'mores up!!) Yummy!!!
The Head Girl sound nasty... and conceited!! Not liking her...
The letters were a GREAT touch. The same lines and the ranting Lia did on their encounter!!
And she knows they're sisters... what will she do? Will she tell her? I bet Mum and Dad figured it out from the data on the letters they've met each other? I mean, what are the odds, Herms, same middle name, eleven-years-old... She's a sharp girl. She'll hypervent!! Poor Herms!!!
I really shouldn't know (need to sleep) but I'l read just one more....
As usual, GREAT chap!! My fav so far!!! ^_^
Oh my oh my oh my!! Sooooo close yet soo far away!!!
This is so good it's addictive!!!
I think it's a tad unfair that Callie doesn't know who her Mum is, while Lia knows her Dad's (infamous) name!!
The thing with the hats was interesting. I almost pictured the Malfoy party going all secret-agent-like... Funny!
And Herms remembering the pink hat she made for Lia.. I bet she did two hats, didn't she?
Oh! I looooved that scene at Pansy's with Lucius sulking and the whole hole staring business!!
Fave quote: "Pansy laughed. Thea giggled. Narcissa smiled. Callie grinned, albeit bewildered. Draco breathed a sigh of relief and scowled at his father, who only smirked at him." LOL!!
Like it. Love it. Adore it. I repeat, it's addictive!!
Again, my apollogies, off to more reading. Hey! Not my fault if there are a lot of chappies posted up there!!
Author's Response: Kaiserin. It's been a long time since a reader has made me laugh and giggle and squee. Thank you for you for your enthusiasm and for taking the time to pause in between chapters to review. Thank you! Read on and please continue to tell me what you think! :)
I loooooooooooooooove the new notes!!!!!!!
It's lovely to hear it from the girls, as if she'd just written it down on her secret diary!!! Loooovely!!!!
And know we know, why Hermione's photos don't show in the papers. Perhaps a part of the agreement?
I like the explanation... the fact that Lia grew up hearing all about Draco Malfoy anecdotes!!
Question... where they ever married? Even for a short time?
And Draco let her go more than once? Do you mean the cannon escape from the manor, or something of your own invention? This story is JUST soo perfect!!!!
Oh! BTW, thanks for keeping our lovely twins, alive!! Are Tonks and Remus still around too?? That'd make this just about better than the original series!!!
^_^ Lucilla, I addore your fic!!! *sigh*
Author's Response: And I adore you! Your reviews for EVERY chapter make me laugh and giddy and excited to update just to see what you'll say this time. Thank you again and again, Ceci!
Looooove the rhyme!!! AND the fact that said chapter is already posted!!!
Soooo, you'll excuse me if this review is merely.... BRILLIANT!!!
Kidding!! It was too lovely not to leave a coment!! The hair changing was a good one! I'd like to see (and I suspect I'll) Callie's POV on that almost-run in. I hinted that the girls will have a bit of parental rubbing-in at first. Like that stunt Lia pulled after seeing Callie with Draco?
And SUCH a lovely exchange between Lia and her Uncles!! If they pull the twin swapping stunt like in the Parent Trap... it's going to be hillarious!!
Oh, and Lia knows!!!! Darn!! Maybe Draco will get Callie to be listed under a false surname? That way the climax will be post-poned a bit!!
Alright, I'll admit there are several things more worth comenting!! I'm apollogizing for not doing so... Hope you'l find it in your heart to forgive me, but I HAVE to read next chapter... NOW!!!
Loving every word!!!
I do, I do, I do!! I'll read it till the end!!!
Great writing!! Your Malfoy-ish dialogs kill me!!!
“And all idiotic principles about blood were completely banished from my mind when I fell in love with a certain half-blood wench eleven years ago.”
Honestly!!! Brilliant!!!! ^_^
I love the relationship between Lucius and Callie!!! They're soo sweet!!! And he plays golf!!! Trust it to Lucius to like a snob sport!!
I'd like to see some more Narcissa, too. The little I've read is too good, not to make me beg for more!!! ^_^
This is going to be soo good!!!
Gone for my next fix, I mean, chapter!!!
Thalia is a PLATE full!!! Honestly!! I LOVE it when you see a nice healthy mixture of Gryffering or Slythindor... ;)
She's just such a tomboyish minx!!!! ^_^
I loved the Quaffle detail about Uncles Ron and Harry. And the fact that she lives within such a close distance from the Burrow... Oh! And how Hermione keeps daydreaming about Draco!!!
BTW, it was pretty obvious in the last chapter who the mother was... At least for a Dramione fan!!
Gone devour another chapter!!!
I'm so very puzzled to learn who will end up in Gryffindor and who in Slyherin. I suspect they have potential for any house. Though Callie seems hell bent on taking the Green...
And so very curious about the reason for the fall out. I mean, if they hocked up, why did they fight? (meaning Mum and Dad)
Loving it even more!!!! ^_^
You are bloody kidding me!!!! I was reading it assuming it did not involve my fave (never-in-a-million-years-possible)pairing!!!!
Just becuse I loved the Parent Trap... And it turns out Mum and Dad are Herms and Draco!?!?!?!?!
It usually takes me at least up to the third chapter to get hook up with a fic. From the moment Dad started fussing over suitors, I loved it! So that'd be like, fifth paragraph!!! Kuddos writer!!!
The way you portrayed this Callie... She's soo addorably Slytherin!! I mean Slyhterin, but charming and (potentially) good!!
Since I simply can't wait to devour the remaining posted chapters, I beg your pardon for not dwelling on a more consistent review. Honestly, can't wait!!!! ^_^
Author's Response: I can't believe I haven't noticed this squee-inducing review before. I'm so cackling-pleased I surprised you, Ceci dearest! Mwahahaha! :D
I KNEW IT WAS DRACO!! Hahaha as I was reading the beginning i was like to myself, "This sounds like Draco!" and when it said "Draco Malfoy cursed inwardly" I was like "BOO YAH!!"
This is so much like the movie parent trap! If it is... Draco and hermoine are getting back together
Haha I KNEW it !!! =D
This is my review to post this story on the Recommended Stories thread.
I might be a bit partial to this story because I made a trailer for it, but every time I read, I hear the song I used playing in my head. It is just a really soft, acustic guitar piece, and it just makes me feel so relaxed.
Oh! And...the story's good too...I guess.
I kid, of course. It is a wonderful story and you should take some time in your day to read it.
Oh, that was brilliant! Update again soon!
ohhh crap! wow. that was amazing. i mean im jumping with joy over here! i give you plenty hugs for this update because im just soo ecstatic! things are finally revealed and ahhh! im so giddy! holy wow i hope the next one is soon because explanations are well needed for the twins! :)
more more more!
Author's Response: *hugs back and jumps with you* This is my fave chapter! Of all my fan fics, heehee. Probably has to do with the big reveal. :D I haven't gotten to a climax like this in TSB.
Well, this has taken quite an interesting turn! I can't wait to read the next chapter. Incidentally, that quote in the last chapter, "pearls before swine" is actually quite a bit older than you mentioned. It comes from the Bible, though not with the same implication.
Author's Response: Oh, yes, how could I forget about the Bible? It's ol' Miss Parker that came to mind when I used the quote. Thanks for reading!
oh wow...nearly headless nick so silly. and great way to reveal secrets cryptically. yay for updating...i thought you abandoned this story but i guess not.wonder when the reveal comes out. :)
awww im sooo glad. everything working out great despite the fights.
i like dorothy parker's the cure for boredom is curiosity. there is no cure for curiosity,
anywho, amazing as usual.
really anxious with whats gonna happen with teh family,
Lovely story, can't wait for the next update.
