i do love this story and can't wait for the next chapter to be posted
Author's Response: I'm so excited to hear that you are enjoying the story! :) The next chapter should be validated any day now. Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Thank you for another nice chapter. I rather liked it, though Dumbledore was very cruel to her. I wonder what is Snape going to do on the Hogsmeade weekend. Must be really hard being a spy. Looking forward to reading more. :)
Author's Response: You are welcome. I'm glad to see that you are still reading! :) I agree with your comment about Dumbledore- I see him as the kind of person who says and does whatever he thinks is necessary for the "greater good." Even though I loved his eccentric, grandfatherly character in the earlier books, I now think of him as the calculating mastermind that became evident in OotP and HBP. Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
If Snape was feeling really snarky, he could tell Lucius it was his idea to put Draco in Muggle Studdies.
Author's Response: That's an interesting idea. Perhaps Snape will do just that. Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I just came across this story, and I'm really enjoying it.
I love the way we see Hogwarts from an adult Muggle perspective.
Great work - looking forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: I'm glad that you are enjoying the story so far! :) When I was planning this story out, I thought it would be interesting for an "outsider" to come to Hogwarts. Thanks for reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Well, looks like we know what Celie thinks about Umbridge don't we? Though it seems she's found a kindred spirit in Snape though.
Author's Response: Yep, it's now proven that Umbridge is annoying to everyone, including to Muggles. How perceptive of you to realize that Celie has "found a kindred spirit in Snape." :) You will just have to wait and see how that plays out in future chapters... Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I find it pretty interesting to see Lucius soooo outraged about her teaching... He's planning to bloody kidnap her and he has the nerve to whine she calls his son on first name basis? The prick... That is just so Lucius!! LOL!!
I can't wait to see what else she cooks up for her students.
Oh! And that testy caustic remark to the Toad... Lovely!! ^.^
Author's Response: Yeah, Lucius is a pretty arrogant guy, but that's what makes him so much fun to have around! I, too, was proud of Celie for telling ol' Delores off like that. Thanks for still reading! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I am loving this story so far. Keep up the good work and keep posting! I think its ridiculous that malfoy is having a whine over Draco having to do his muggle studies work. What do you expect when he is attending a muggle studies class. Pompous man!
Author's Response: Hi! I'm so happy to hear that you are enjoying the story! :) Don't worry, I will be sure to keep posting chapters! I agree with you about Lucius being a pompous man. He's a pretty fun character to write because he is so rotten. :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Well, I am enjoying reading it as much as you are enjoying writing it! Can't wait for more! Keep it up!!
Author's Response: Thanks for the real compliment! :) I'm glad to know that you are still enjoying the story. More is on the way... Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I really like this story. It must be very hard for Celie to teach in a totally foreign and strange place, at least she is teaching the things she is best at. I guess Snape's life gets harder from now on, trying to protect her. :) I hope you update soon. :)
Author's Response: Hi! I'm glad that you are liking the story. I agree with you that Celie must be having a hard time adjusting to teaching in such an unusual school. Trust me, Snape's life definitely gets harder from now on! :) The next chapter has already been submitted for verification, so it should be up real soon. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Next chapter please!!! :)
Author's Response: The next chapter is coming right up! Thanks for reading! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Interesting to see how things are coming out... Very much!! Good chap and make sure to keep 'em coming!
Author's Response: I'm so excited to see that you are still reading and enjoying the story. Thanks for the encouragement and for being such a loyal reader! Don't worry, I will be sure to keep posting chapters. :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
LOVE IT! That was hilarious where Dumbledore was telling Snape how cute Celie was!! I'm still laughing! you're doing a great job! Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: I'm thrilled that you are still reading and enjoying the story! I had a lot of fun writing that particular scene that you mentioned: I could just see Dumbledore's twinkling eyes while he was egging Snape on. Thanks for being such a loyal reader! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I love it! Especially the exchange between Snape and Black, but really? Is that the only reason he made her Harry's godmother or is there another reason he's going to disclose after Snape is gone?
Author's Response: It's nice to hear from you again! I hope you're not disappointed, but, as described in the chapter, there is only one reason why Celie was made Harry's Godmother. While I think Sirius does have a basically good heart, I have always thought that he was very impulsive and lacking in self-control, which (in this case) has led to a problem with some serious implications for everyone involved. I felt that this was a believable action for Sirius to make. (Sneak Peek- more to come between Sirius and Celie in later chapters!) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Thank you for continuing with the story. The situation seems to be exactly like on Sirius would create. Looking forward to the rest of the story. I have it listed by title, author, and updates as breadcrumbs to lead me back.
Author's Response: Hello! I'm thrilled that you are enjoying the story. I'm glad that you think Sirius's reaction to seeing Celie seems genuine because I am trying to make this story as authentic to the real books as possible. To me, the best compliment a writer can receive is to hear that a reader wants to KEEP reading their work. Thank you! More chapters are coming! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Enjoying it very much! Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Hello again, nevilleherosnape! Thanks for continuing to read my story! I'm glad to hear that you are still enjoying it! Chapter 5 has already been submitted and should be up any day now! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Realllyyy good so far! Im very curious!
Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review! I'm glad that you are liking the story. I hope that it exceeds your expectations! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
oh, this is getting better and better :)
Can't wait to know more about how and why Sirius put that spell on Cecilia!
Author's Response: Hello again, Wandering Wand! I'm so glad to hear that you are still liking the story! You will find out more about Sirius's motives in Chapter 5, which has already been submitted. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Nice chapter. I feel sorry for Celie a little. It must be terribly confusing to be a muggle in Hogwarts.
You write very well and I am really looking forward to reading more. :)
Author's Response: Thanks for writing a review! I'm glad that you are enjoying the story. I agree with you: I imagine it would be extremely confusing to be a Muggle in Hogwarts. (But I'd still like to try it!) :) I hope you enjoy Chapter 5! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Hey there!! I find myself liking this story more and more!!
The serious/Sirious game of words with Celia was quite funny! I liked it, especially the way Albus used it to pull Snape's leg at the end! ^_^ LOL!
I find it a little slow moving, but I guess each and every chapter can't be action packed, right? I wonder exactly how they're going to get the teacher to stay in the school and what it's going to be with her.
I liked her impressions of Dumbledore... And how she first wanted to hospitalize him and then started to like him.
I enjoyed this chapter very much, Cecilia's thoughts especially!! She's got a sharp mind!
The only thing that' s bit fishy is the explanation of why she got to be Harry's godmother... the compulsion spell Sirius put on her, somehow got her to become Harry's godmother. I'd have believed that the fact she brought back Harry's wand (vital and connected to each wizard) the wand "choose" her. You know, like a wand gets to choose a wizard, might get to choose a wizard's godmother/father, if he or she was willing. And Celia was, since she brought the wand!!
Just an idea... Outside that, I simply love the direction the story is headed. I have a feeling she's going to be thorn in Snape's side for quite a while... And I like it!! I do love Snape, but he certainly needs an attitude adjustment!! I wonder what other wonders you have in store for Celia!!! Hope the updates keep coming!!!
Author's Response: Hello again, Kaiserin! Thank you for such a complimentary review! :) I'm tickled pink that you are enjoying the story so much! I know the beginning is a little slow, but the action is coming very soon. I'm trying to set the stage, so everything makes sense. Don't worry- I'm an action junkie and there will be plenty of it!!! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds P.S. Never fear...the updates will keep coming!
I love it! This is great! Good job! Looking forward to a promised long read!!! :)
Author's Response: Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad that you are enjoying my story so far. This will definitely be a long story- it will cover from the beginning of Order of the Phoenix until after the conclusion of Deathly Hallows. Chapter 4 should be up any day now! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
