Very good! I enjoyed this chapter immensely and I'm looking forward to the next one! (I liked the bit about the doornail/dormouse). :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I like the doornail/dormouse joke too. I've not written a humour story before, and I found coming up with jokes wasn't easy, but that one seemed almost ready made (more thanks to Mr Dickens and Ms Rowling than me, really).
Nice to see you writing again - I have missed your work loads! Anyway, nicely done with this - loved the interaction between Flitwick and Snape.
Author's Response: I'm sorry I've been away so long. Ihope to be back more regularly from now on. I made sure I'd written most of this before submitting (I've written 4 of 5 chapters), so it won't be left hanging (although I'll probably run out of time to get them all in before Christmas). Glad you liked Flitwick - Snape doesn't have a nephew of course, so I needed a replacement character. A colleague seemed obvious, and I always thought Flitwick was the nicest of the Hogwarts faculty.
Hi, I just read your story, and I thought it was wondrful! I love the Dickens Christmas Carol, I watch it every Christmas season, so I was intrigued by this tale of Snape, being visited by 3 ghosts.
I thought the part with Moaning Myrtle;s ghost was cute, well, for Snape it was'nt cute, but I can't wait to read the next chapter!
Thanks for a great story! :0)
Author's Response: I love A Christmas Carol as well, it's such a simple but brilliant story. Myrtle was an obvious choice to replace Marley: I partly wrote this story just so I could start with "Myrtle was dead, to begin with"!
Oh, yeah! I get to be the first person to review this story!
I am very excited to see this story develop. I have seen so many different adaptations of different stories, but I don't think I have ever seen the one you have attempted. It is so unbelievably clever, I can't believe no one has ever done it before.
I am a bit nervous to see Snape break out into a manic Christmas cheer, though, but I am sure you will carry it out beautifully.
Author's Response: I'm surprised myself no one (that I've found) has done this before (I did check before starting). All the ghosts in it do make it an obvious idea, I think. Rest assured that Snape will not go completely manically happy by the end, although it'll need some work. The last chapter is the only one I haven't written yet, so I'm interested myself to see how it'll turn out!
