Snape laughs! Who knew? This chapter was laugh out loud funny. Great stuff.
I've gotta say the thought of anyone washing Snape's back makes me throw up in my mouth a little.
Author's Response: Thank you for sending me a review! :) I don't think that it is anti-canon for Snape to laugh at one of the Golden Trio, particularly in such a ridiculous situation as the karaoke scene. I'm really glad that you found this chapter so funny - that's exactly what I was going for. I hope that you like the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
This is hysterical! The picture you painted is perfect. Snape being put out because of having to sleep on the floor of the canyon. The hokey cowboy songs. Ron singing at the top of his voice. Hermione getting all Hermione on him for singing the wrong lyrics and then...dun, dun, dun a rattle snake. OMG. Would Parseltongue work on rattlers or did that ability leave him with Voldy? Nice job. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Author's Response: I'm happy to hear that you are enjoying the story so much! :) I really loved writing this chapter. Thank you for the review and I hope that you enjoy the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Author's Response: Thank you! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I read the "Accidental Godmother" and I'm pretty sure I didn't review, so now I'm reading "Accidental Tour Guide", I figured that I ought to review already.
I think that your stories are very well written, especially the romantic situations, which are not too risqué or too prudish. They are just right. You fit humor very well in your stories. I laughed everytime people called Severus Harry's father.
One thing I have questions about is the Ron/Hermione. My OTP is Romione, so I was glad to see them together, but the whole proposal thing happened really fast. I honestly think it could have been eased in. However, Ron's not really the type to take it slow, so I sort of get where that came from.
Overall I really like your stories and I can't wait to see more! :-)
Author's Response: Hello! I'm thrilled to hear from you for the first time! :) Thank you for your many kind compliments. I am very glad to hear that you find my writing, particularly the romantic scenes, "just right." I have always worried about those scenes, so I am very happy to hear that you find them to have the perfect balance. After the seriousness of The Accidental Godmother, I decided to go all-out and get as much humor into this story as possible. I've had a great time doing so! :) About the Ron/Hermione proposal, I can see your point about it happening rather quickly, but at the same time, I wanted to introduce it, since the upcoming sequels will all be set later on, when Harry & Ginny and Ron & Hermione are married. Thank you for sending me your thoughts - I really appreciate it! I hope to hear from you again! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
You totally keep topping your last chapters!! This was fantastic!! I nearly fell in the floor laughing at Randy and Ronnie!!! Great job!!!
Author's Response: After reading your sweet review, I am grinning ear to ear! :) As to the Ronnie/Randy scene, I laughed my head off while writing it, so I'm glad to hear that other people laughed as much as me! THANK YOU for all your support and enthusiasm! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Somewhat amazed that a Potter story can be enjoyed with so little magic involved.
I like all the lyrical references, and you have a great sense of humor. Its also interesting seeing Snape battling his two personas while the trio is able to simply enjoy life, when they're not fighting bikers or each other in jail.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the complimentary review! :) I'm very happy to hear that you are enjoying the story even though there isn't much magic being utilized. I am having a blast writing about the zany adventures that the traveling companions are experiencing and I truly hope that you enjoy the next chapter. Thanks for sending me your thoughts! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I DIED when I read about Ron singing that song and the events after! You are such an amazing writer! I wish I had your talent so I could get my stories on here. :'(
Author's Response: Thank you for your generous compliments! :) I, too, laughed aloud while writing the scene when Ron sang karaoke; I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who found that tremendously amusing. Have confidence in yourself and in your writing - everybody has to start somewhere and I think that you would do just fine as an author! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Wow, the whole karaoke part was hilarious! I completely lost it and laughed so hard I nearly fell off my chair. I was really glad to see Hermione and Ron get engaged, although I didn't see it coming. You're right, I think Ron would be the jealous type. ( look at what happened with Krum in the fourth book!) anyway, that was an amazing chapter. Thanks for updating this, it made my day.
Author's Response: It's nice to hear from you again, MagicMandy! :) I'm very pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed the karaoke scene because I also laughed aloud during that part. I hadn't originally planned to have Ron propose to Hermione in this story, but as I was writing, it just seemed like it would fit in well. Thank you for the review and all the wonderful compliments! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Well worth waiting for!!!!!
You have a fantastic imagination, and your words have a way of making the reader see what you are imagining.
The scenes in the cells, are a continuation of the way their interactions with each other keep changing.
I'm looking forward to the next chapters & any sequels you will write about the group.
Author's Response: I'm so glad to hear that you thought this chapter was worth the long wait! :) Thank you for all of your sweet compliments. I really appreciate you telling me how much you are enjoying the story. Also, you are the only one to comment on how Snape's relationships with Harry, Ron, and Hermione (and vice versa) are changing - how very observant of you! I am personally enjoying the repartee between the slowly relaxing professor and the kids, whose unfavorable opinion of Snape has been gradually altered after becoming enlightened as to his true motives and beliefs. I hope that you enjoy the next chapter and thanks again for being such a loyal reader and reviewer! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
That was a wonderful chapter. Can't believe they actually got arrested. Keep the wonderful chapters coming.
Author's Response: Hello again! :) I had so much fun writing the scene when our favorite travelers got arrested and I'm thrilled to hear that you enjoyed reading about it. Can't wait to hear what you think about the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I'm loving it, just like I loved the prequel!!!
Ah, evil cliffhanger you've left us on!!
Please update soon. Congratulations on your fantastic work!
Author's Response: I'm so excited to hear from you again, Bastet! :) I'm glad that you are liking this sequel as much as you liked the original story. The next chapter is coming very soon and I hope that you like it! Thank you for the sweet review and the wonderful support! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Great job! I could just imagine all of this happening in my head as I read. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: I'm thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the chapter, stormygirl! :) Thanks for reading and reviewing. I hope that you like the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Hilarious! You just keep coming out with great chapters - keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks, starkllr! I'm so happy to see that you are still reading and enjoying the story. :) I hope that you like the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Omg I loved it. It was awesome...I can't wait for the next sequels:)
Author's Response: Thank you very much for such a complimentary review! :) I really appreciate you taking the time to tell me your thoughts! I hope that you enjoy the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Have been checking daily for this update and I can say it was well worth the wait (and your efforts)!
Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time each day to check for the new chapter. I really appreciate your kind support! :) Hope you like the next chapter! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
O.o...I MUST know what happens!!!! I can't wait till chapter 6 is up!!!!
Author's Response: Chapter 6 should be approved by the moderators and posted very soon. Thanks for sending me a review and I can't wait to hear if you enjoyed the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh no!! Results of beating up the bikers?!
Author's Response: Nope. All will be explained in the next chapter. Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I hate cliffhangers! Good way to keep the suspense going, though!
Author's Response: Sorry about the abrupt ending, but it was the perfect place to stop. Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
AHHH cliffhanger's are not nice. That was a great chapter. You always are able to give such great detail in your chapters. Keep them coming. To bad you didn't send them also to LA or even Las Vegas. That would have been funny seeing the golden trio in Vegas with Snape trying to control them. Oh well, can't wait to see how they get out of this current mess.
Author's Response: Thank you for your continued support! :) I hope that you enjoy the next chapter - it will explain everything about their arrest. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Another great chapter. I love how you are developing the characters & their relationships with each other.
Poor Severus. The more the kids get used to being around him, the more unsure of himself he gets. And as to children, twins run in Celie's family, don't they?
What a great cliffhanger. I hope the next chapter comes as fast as this one did. Can hardly wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: Thank you for another complimentary review! :) I am so happy to hear how you are enjoying the characters' interactions with each other - I take a lot of time trying to figure out how Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Snape would act toward one another. Your analysis of Snape is exactly right; he isn't at all comfortable with being seen as anyone other than the distant professor figure from the kids' past. And your comment about twins running in Celie's family is VERY perceptive, but you won't know for sure until we finish this story and the next sequel (which is very short). The next chapter should be posted shortly and I can't wait to hear your thoughts about it! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
