I liked this fic you wrote for your class – it was less technical than the previous one but I found the plot incredibly interesting and it was definitely the strongest part of the fic. The idea of the orb and what could have happened if people had been sorted in to different houses is very interesting and the kind of thing which has sparked many AU plots. I did wonder where Harry was though as I didn’t see him mentioned unless I was being dozy.
There were moments when I was a little confused because at the beginning especially it was not always clear where Ginny was getting her instructions from. When you eventually mentioned the book, I did realise who/what was instructing her but I could have done with it a bit sooner.
Again the technical side of potion-making and the things you had learned in class came across really well and I was very impressed.
I was trying to be subtle, but my Beta mentioned that, too. Anyway thanks for the great review!
Very different and captivating story. It got a little confusing when you kept mentioning the "book" helping her. I figured out that it was Tom's diary, but the way it was referenced was a bit confusing. I'll have to look and see what other stories you've written as this one was so great! : )
Author's Response: Great and confusing? Thanks. (I'm reworking it, stay tuned!)
