Next chapter, please.
Fantastic, Hal! I loved every line of your story. I'll definitely start reading again when you post chapters. I especially love your description in the beginning of Mishamash, and the story is so intriguing. I love it! :)
Hal! I love it! I was waiting for you to put this up, and it's glorious. I really really adore how you fabricated your wizarding New York. It reminds me of the way people would write novels about kids in the city back in the day. You know what I mean? You're rivaling JKR there, I think. Hah! Scorpius and Rose's backstory is very intriguing - I would like to know more. I really like Libby's characterization. Actually I just really like everything so far. Keep writing! (=
This is a really good start... I'll definitely be back and lurking!
I love the interaction between Libby and her friends and Libby and her father.
I like how you make Scorpius talk about his past to Libby, and that he doesn't talk about it much.
I ADORE this! Ahh! I've told you so many times how much I love this idea and I assure you, the execution is even better! I love that this story is completely American. Unlike some others-school stories I have read, this one is truly original. American wizards have their own culture, which makes such perfect sense. PLUS, I love the reference to the play. Perfect perfect perfect!
I also LOVED the interaction between Libby and her father. YES. It was perfect!I don't know how much more I could gush about this chapter without being redundant and killing the exclamation point more, but I just adore it! Yay! Good job!
I really like this story! And I loved the name you have chosen for your charecter. Libra, as you know is a sign of the Horoscope. Very educated in mind....I hope she is sucessful at her new school.
I love the fact, that this takes place in America...The absence of the Harry Potter charecters, in a story like this, makes it a fun story to read as this one is an original piece and you were influenced by Ms Rowling's writings.
I cannot wait for the next chapter!
Best of luck with it and the rest of this wonderful tale.
Great beginning! But what is quodpot? And what's up with the Weasleys?(Am I right in thinking Rose is Rose Weasley?)
Yeah, it's up. I had so much fun helping you iron things out, I can't wait to read the rest of the story. I love the start and you have done a great job setting up your characters, I already feel sorry for Libra. I also like the way you have set up Scorpius, similar yet not exactly like his dad. I set this as a favorite so I can watch for the next chapter.
Well, I am of course a sucker for a well-written American wizarding school fic. ;) I look forward to seeing what the Salem Witches' Institute is like. I love your description of the Village.
I was initially a little skeptical about Scorpius/Rose, just because it's been so done to death in fanfiction, but I don't mind any ship as long as it's done well, and I don't expect Libby's parents will be the focus of the story anyway. It's unfortunate that even some 40+ years into the future, it seems wizarding society hasn't progressed very far.
One typo: "Quodpot" is mispelled.
An intriguing beginning. You have set the stage and characters and drawn me in, so I'll have to see what follows with Libra at Salem Institute. Now if I add the nineteen years later plus say ten until Scorpius and Rose marry and then twelve for Libra's age, I get a setting in the year 2039 or beyond. I wonder if wizarding magic advances like technology does and what new things they may have in thirty years.
