I really like your writing style! I wish I could visit Kurrawong. It's really cool that you could come up with a different school in so much detail. :)

Chapter: Kurrawong Academy

This was really interesting to read and if you do write more set at Kurrawong then I will definitely read it. Very well done. I've always wondered about Oceanic magical schools (I'm from New Zealand) and have thought about writing a fic set in New Zealand as well. It makes a change from all the fics out there set in the States! I love how the school seemed much more laidback than Hogwarts which is how I would imagine an Australian or New Zealand school to be. Thanks for a great read.

Author's Response: Thanks, Julia! Oceanic schools have always fascinated me, too, and this was the perfect opportunity to write one. I'm Australian, so it made sense for me to set it there, but New Zealand would be a fabulous place to set one, too. All the mountains to hide in ... there's endless possibilites. I'm glad you liked it! :D

This was marvelously interesting! I like the idea very much, I wonder what kinds of mysteries could be hidden away at this little Australian school. I will definitely read more if you write about it.

Author's Response: Thank you! The school needs a bit of developing, but I think I definitely will start a fic based around it.

Hey Jenny!

I really enjoyed reading this. Kurrawong promises to be an interesting school, although it does lack Slytherin tendencies. :D And I do wish Dumbledore had been a bit more chatty - his wisecracking self - although, he may be quieter because he's in the presence of...well, is stranger the right word for it?

Totally unhelpful review, but I loved it.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, Natalie! I know the school lacks Slytherin types - originally I had four houses but didn't want them to be a copy of the Hogwarts houses. I figure the Slytherins would either go into Grattai or Kaputar, depending on the individual. And I know what you mean about Dumbledore - I think his reserved personality in this story is partly because of his fascination with the school and he's thinking deeply about it, but it's partly because I'm rubbish at writing him, really. >.> I'm so pleased you liked it, dear. :) Thanks again!
