Hahahahaha sounds like someone we know...
This was an excellent story! Such good characters and interwoven plot for so few chapters; I loved it. Nothing felt cliche, everything was so original -- and so well written!
Author's Response: Oh thank you!! :) This is a very lovely review. ~ Natalie
My foist review for this chapter somehow died, so here's another. (The math, Rosmerta knew, was somewhat screwed, yet it sounded impressive.)
Have you told Timmy this?
As soon as she’d hugged her cousin, she’d declared, “You need a wine taster”, and in spite of Rosmerta’s insistence that her wine collection was fine and she didn’t need to take the trouble, she’d proceeded towards the cellar and launched into a wine-tasting spree. Listen to your cousin, Rosmerta. She speaketh with verimisilitude ... twas ever thus!
Plot thickening. Golderoy is ghastly. This, despite being HILARIOUS, is also intriguing .....
Reads on ....
Author's Response: Golderoy. Gilderoy/Goldilocks. OIC.
OH OH OHHHHHH - She wrote a book that might- possibly- one- day- maybe- when- she- stops- getting- distracted- by- everything- else- in- her- life- not- to- mention- the- spag- bol .... get finished (eeep indeed)
Ahhh, this has been a fabulous birthday morning. I have adored reading this and giggling at all the little jokes, sighing over the sadness and truths, grrr'ing at the evility of Lockjhart and Skeeter, cheering Teddy, whooping with Dean (or joy) over Calendora as she vanquished them.
Above all I love that you wrote this for me. You know me so very well ... :D
Thank you. I fear these reviews are poor recompense. Verily, I have turnethed into Crollalanza. Twas ever thus.
Carole Crollalanza, Careoledora, Crogella, Crololol CARMERTA!!!!!!~ ♥♥♥
PS: You is some of aweeeeeeee and not at all ghastly.
Author's Response: YAYAYAY! All I wanted to do for your birthday was make you laugh! :D I do know you very well. I stalk you... I'm so happy you liked this. Continue Crolling!
no one makes Spag Bol better than me.” - Too right, byotch!
OHHHHH, and Yayayayayaya. and OOOOOH again.
I forgot to say in the last review that I thought she was going to turn out to be Tonks' older sister and that she'd had to Modify her family's memories to protect them. So - ha ha - that goes to show how wrong I was and how fabulously you surprised me. I keep using the word fabulous.
Side note - I need lessons from you in keepingmy chapters short, snappy and yet still packed with information. FAB
I'm nearly at the end - NOOOOOOOO
Author's Response: I really must find a way to come to London and have your Spag Bol!! Thrilled you enjoyed this so far :)
Kappas, Not Muses Yes.
Oh ... I'm sad now for the broken love between Tonks and Calendora. I mean this, now, it's all very sad and I feel all wistful.
Rosmerta is a good cousin. That Calendora needs to be sober enough to take on Dick - SOBER UP, WOMAN!
I love the way you've brought Victoire into this, and the plot is really starting to bubble away. There's so much I'm giggling over, and yet it's tearing at me too.
(Hasn't Teddy realised that she's a Beacon of Light ....?)
Carole (yes I have a name!)
Author's Response: Actually, I had completely forgotten about Victoire! The story just kept changing shape like a Metamorphmagus! I'm glad I remembered her, though, because I like the ship Teddy/Victoire and I was glad to give them some innocent moments together.
The place was an utter mess. Clothes hung all over the sofa in the corner. There was a sock dangling from the top of the cupboard, which was ajar, a pair of dark denim jeans peeked out. Books were strewn on the carpet, and on the bed. The study desk, on the other hand, was cluttered with an assortment of photo-frames. You are stalking me ... EEEEP!
I am actually weeping here. Real real tears of utter joy (OH! My middle name) and just ... oh wow ... this is so incredibly funny and Bloody Hell I ahve a lot of nicknames ... I mean Calendora does - hahahah.
I am reallly, really intrigued about what she wanted to tell him. Her relief when he talked about Sirius was very telling.
Taking breath and ploughing on ..... (still giggling far to much to read and review properly - heheheheheh
Author's Response: You do have a lot of nicknames, woman! I missed out CON! TARNATION!
I can't believe I haven't mentioned the chapter titles yet - hahahahahah.
Oh ... and then a really sad part for Teddy. :( . This is why you're so brilliant (or brillinat, I should say). Even when you're writing a very funny story full of in-jokes, you slip some fabulous characterisation, a backstory, and also a cracking good plot.
I LOVE THIS!!!!
Author's Response: Yes, I put a lot of thought into the chapter titles... And thank you for the compliment!
There is so much to love here. First off, beyond all the giggling, I love the plot. Gildeory and now Rita - hahahahah - FANTABULOUS! I fear for the Trio and the wondrous Calendora Dean Beacon (I am concentrating hard on EVERY reference, btw - heh heh.)
Okay, so I died at Greco Golompierre, started to revive but then he ate snails, so I died again. Then just as I became almost Inferi, that Jones person turned up declaring she loved Fish burgers - hahahahahhahahah - She gets everywhere (THANK MERLIN FOR HER UBIQUITY!)
Is the story about Snepe's Squib daughter really a fabrication? I'm disappointed. You got my hopes up then dashed them to the ground - sigh - .
,br> Grass's irishisms are hilarious - mwahahahahahha and McLaggen's obsession my the teacher's breasts - hahahahahah. This Crollega Dawson - she sounds amazing, too. Okay, I am dying. There's so much here for me to comment on, but I have to read on!!!!!!
Croll ... um .... Is that my name, now?
Author's Response: Alas! Ms Snape remains a figment of our imagination. As for Grass, he's a sweet lad, really.
Thank Merlin you obliterated the smut! the only possible ship is Snapehart ...
Giggling a lot. You know me far too well.
Reading on .....
Author's Response: Well, I must like you a lot to save you from such a dire fate...
Wait wait wait - was that Tonks?? Oh my!
I feel like I should let Carole have the first review, but I'm going to go ahead anyway.
Great job writing in that perfect Lockhart style. I have absolutely no idea what this has to do with Teddy, but it looks fun. Almost makes me want to dig up .... never mind. ;)
Good start! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: Hahaha! YAY! Thanks for clicking on this ;) I hope you'll enjoy the rest--or you enjoyed the rest, if you've finished reading :)
