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
I just love this story. Getting the characters away from Hogwarts and the plot of the official books is so much fun. What a great idea to take them to the Southwest! Looking forward to the next installment!
Author's Response: Thank you! :) I truly appreciate all of your kind compliments! I am so glad to hear that you think all my hard work is paying off! About halfway through writing The Accidental Godmother, the idea of having our favorite fivesome go on a road trip for the first sequel came to me. I thought that it would help all the characters see each other in a different light and would help pave the way for the later sequels. (Besides that, I knew that it would provide a lot of opportunities for humor!) I really hope that you enjoy the next chapter. Thanks again for being such a loyal reader and reviewer! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
You keep topping yourself with each new chapter!!!! Fantastic!!!
Author's Response: What sweet compliments! :) Thank you! If you think that this was a good chapter, wait until you read the next one (particularly the very end)! :) I can't wait to hear your thoughts about it. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Wonderful. You packed so much into this chapter--humor, Snape's worry about being disrespected, Harry's discretion about his wand use on the snake, Celie's worries about Snape...
I eagerly await further adventures with this group.
Author's Response: Hello again! :) I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the chapter. When I was planning this story out, I didn't plan on writing such long chapters, but once I get started writing I find it hard to stop! Thank you for sending me another kind review and I hope that you enjoy the next chapter. :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
That was another great chapter. The Grand Canyon is an amazing place that I have seen in person. You convaided the whole experanice very well. My worst fear is 'RATTLESNAKES'. So promise me no more rattlers in the rest of this story. Any other snake is exceptable.
Much love and keep on writing this great story.
Author's Response: I'm so happy that you were pleased with the latest chapter! :) Yes, the Grand Canyon is a stunningly beautiful place to visit - I'm glad to hear that you have been there and that I was able to capture its essence within the chapter. I promise you that there will be no more snakes of any kind in this story! I, too, have a tremendous fear of snakes, so I won't be mentioning them any more. Thanks for always sending me an encouraging review! :) I appreciate you taking the time to tell me your thoughts! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Ugggg!! This is the first time I've had to wait for a chapter (all the rest had been previously written) and it will drive me CRAZY!! Anyway, awesome chapter! :D
Author's Response: The next chapter should be posted soon. I hope that you find it worth the wait! :) Thanks for letting me know that you enjoyed the chapter! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I really like this story! Thumbs up!
Author's Response: Thank you! I hope that you like the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I look forward to a Harry Potter story that is filled with laughs and happiness opposed to the usual darker demeanor or the story
Author's Response: Hello again! I'm glad to see that you decided to check out this story, too! :) After writing about the drama in The Accidental Godmother, I was really looking forward to writing a lighter story with a good bit of humor in it. I'm really having a fantastic time writing it and I hope that you enjoy it! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
That was great!!! Fantastic!
Author's Response: Thank you for the sweet review! I can't wait to hear what you think about the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Nice chapter. I liked the part about Harry, Ron, and Snape taking on the bikers. At first, I wondered why Hermione couldn't just use magic to get rid of them, but then I remembered the 'no magic' rule. I also liked Snape's thoughts on the shootout act. I can just see him standing there, criticizing everyone else's idiocy.
Author's Response: Hello again! I'm thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the chapter! :) I, too, particularly liked the scene where Snape, Harry, and Ron got into a brawl with the bikers. I had a really fun time writing that part of the chapter. There's more to come and I hope to hear from you again! Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
That was another great chapter. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.
Author's Response: Thank you for your kind review! :) I look forward to hearing from you after each chapter has been posted. Hope that you enjoy the upcoming chapter! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
i love your series! the way you write about Snape is different. people usually make him feel all soft and stuff, but you keep him in his stubborn ways. (even if he can be romantic and sweet at times) i hope theres more to come ! (:
Author's Response: Hello! I'm so excited to hear that you are enjoying the series! :) I am also glad to hear that you approve of the way that I am writing Snape's character; my aim has always been to present the HP characters to be as true to the books as possible (while putting my own creative spin on the existing canon). There are a couple of more chapters to go in this story before the next sequel. Thank you for the review and I hope to hear from you again! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Absolutely hilarouis! I really enjoyed this - keep it up!
Author's Response: It's nice to hear back from you, starkllr! :) I'm glad that you are enjoying the sequel - there will be about four or five more chapters in this story before the next sequel. I'm also happy to hear that my attempts at humor are paying off. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I'm having a really bad day and this story is REALLY cheering me up. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: I'm so happy to hear that my story is cheering you up! :) Thanks for being a loyal reader and reviewer and I hope that all of your days in the future are terrific! Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Great story! I am enjoying Snape's reaction to some of the situations he has encountered. I always knew he could accept whatever was thrown at him and Celie is a wonderful ally and defender of her beloved husband. Being an Elvis fan from way back(I am 59, after all, and a real Potter Fan) I thoroughly enjoyed Snape's brush with "The King". Very funny and truly enjoyable. Can't wait to see what else our poor Professor will have to endure.
Author's Response: Hello! Thank you for sending me a review! :) I appreciate you taking the time to let me know your opinion of the story. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the chapter, particularly the part where Snape meets the Elvis impersonator. I had such a great time writing this chapter and I am so happy that someone else found it worth the effort. There will be many more humorous situations that poor ol' Snape will have to "endure" (what a perfect way for you to describe it!) in the upcoming chapters. Happy Reading! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
That was another great chapte can't wait to see what you come up with next.
Author's Response: I'm so glad to hear from you again! :) Thank you for the review and I can't wait to hear your thoughts about the next chapter. Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
"I just met your king" BAHAHAHA!!!! Love it and I loved the part where the boys all agreed on the mustang!! Awesome job!!
Author's Response: Hello again! Thank you for letting me know that you are still enjoying my writing! :) Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I loved it!! Can't wait for more!!!
Author's Response: The next chapter should be up very soon - I have most of the story already written, so it's merely a matter of getting the chapters approved by the moderators. Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
It's REALLY good Ruby. I can't wait to see what will become of our favorite Godmother and most saracstic Potions professer! If you don't keep writing this I will die, and we don't want that to happen, so, please keep writing!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful compliments! :) I'm thrilled to see that you are so excited about the story! Don't worry - I have almost finished the entire sequel and there is no way that I will ever abandon this (or any other) story! Thanks for the review and I hope to hear from you again! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I just finished reading the Accidental Godmother and I really felt the need to see what happens next. I see a lot of potential in this chapter, and it's pretty entertaining. I like seeing Ron in the Muggle world. I also liked seeing the Durselys. I always imagined that if Harry ever saw his aunt and uncle again, he would pretend not to know
them. But where was Dudley? Also, you said this was 'the first sequel'. How many are you planning on?
Author's Response: Hello again! I'm glad to see that you dropped by to read the sequel! :) I also enjoyed Ron's observations about the Muggle world. Dudley wasn't with Vernon and Petunia during this chapter; I felt that it would be better to not have him with his parents at the airport, since Harry and Dudley parted in a more agreeable manner than Harry parted with his aunt and uncle. And now, to answer your question about the "first" sequel - I have at least four more sequels planned to continue the "Accidental" series. Thank you for sending me a review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
