Like many others, I'm a fan of humor stories that could actually happen in the Potterverse. I just don't like the ones that are needlessly random and feature everyone being horribly OOC for no reason. This was quite well written, and I loved it.
*explodes into uncontrollable laughing fits*
You are beyond brilliant. Oh, how I love the Weasleys....
LMAO. Cheerful toy spiders > Ron. I loved this.
XDXD Fred and George = funtimes.
And I've always wondered about that. You can't have dozens of wizards walking through a wall in the middle of a crowded train station without SOMEONE noticing. i guess they just all think they're hallucinating.
YES, YES, OH GOD YES. This is FANTASTIC. It's completely and utterly hilarious, without being needlessly random or out of character. You, sir or madam, win the universe for this fic.
L. O. L.
I usually hate fourth-wall-breaking fics, but this one was just so well done, I couldn't help but love it. Kudos to you. The shipping wars will never die!
That was... just... whoa.
Are you sure you weren't under the influence of Frivolous Flurp when you wrote that? Because... seriously. That? Was a trip.
I commend you for writing the wackiest HP fanfic I've ever read. I quite liked it.
Hee. That was fairly clever. I'm surprised it doesn't have more reviews.
It's Seventh Year, and the new Headmaster has decreed that students must take some sort of course to fulfill the new Art Requirement. Our favourite characters have decided to take Drama. What kind of hilarity will ensue when the night of the first dress rehearsal arrives? Expect Hagrid as a Tree, Ron as Godric Gryffindor and Malfoy as the Amazing "Dancing" Ferret.
Ron/Luna, Prof. Pat/Hermione, Blaise/Himself
XD XD and also XD
This story is love. It's sweet, hilarious, perfectly true to canon (at least, as we knew it at the time) and without any of the needless randomness that characterizes many humour fics. Also:
"James said as the boys headed past a portrait of Princess Winnifred the Moat Swimmer"
YES! Once Upon a Mattress reference: I was totally in that play. I was the King. :-)
Delightfully random. Not much more to be said, really.
Author's Response: Why thank you!
I blame a dead crup, Sirius, Bellatrix and some escaped fairies. Wipe that smirk off your face, I'm being serious here... really!
Oooh, I love these sort of butterfly effect stories. Change one thing, change everything. It's strange how the smallest action can have the hugest consequences when time is added, and you've demonstrated that wonderfully here.
I do like this story. Teddy seems like he could be a very interesting character to play around with in fic. The spelling and grammar here are sound so far as I know, and I like where you're going with the story. My only criticism is that Teddy seems to act a bit older than the 11-year-old we know him to be in this fic. He seems almost too mature. Just my two cents.
LOL. Nicely done. I loved Molly's verse, and yes, the Weasleys are quite simply the best fictional family ever. One thing: it's 'fearsome' not 'fiercesome.' Unless you did that on purpose. Other than that, great job.
Author's Response: Oops--fixed fearsome. Kudos for catching that (yeah, it wasn\'t on purpose...) and thanks for the review!
Wow. WOW that was beautiful. Really, well and truly beautiful. Most grief fics I've seen feature heavy crying, sobbing, hugging, and angst by the bucketloads. But while that is all fine and good, this rings truer for me. For grief really is all about the little things: the tiny, seemingly insignificant habits and quirks which one doesn't really notice until they are gone. In a world of mournful wailing, your beautiful picture of quiet sadness and remembrance stands above the rest. There's really nothing I can criticize about this.
Author's Response: Wow. What a nicely put review. Thanks very much, I really appreciate it. Grief really is about the little things. The bigger picture is bearable if you think about it. It\'s the little things that get us.
"and he wilted and sunk his face into his opposable digits."
You had me at this place. I like the sporadic capitalisation: it seems appropriate for George to sort of give proper names to his thoughts like that. It's not really clear if the Resurrection Stone incident is a dream or a memory, but that might be intentional. The story is heartbreakingly hilarious. Long live Fred!
Author's Response: The italicized part was a dream. Or a vision, whatever you want to call it. Thank you!
For Rose Weasley, her impressions of her own “love” were shattered when she found out something she shouldn't have, something that made her wish for revenge ... something that made her unable to take it.
It's fairly well written, but unless I'm misreading (which I don't think I am, but very well could be) it sounds like Rose loves Albus.
Which is somewhat awkward, considering they're cousins.
Oh well. Still fairly well written, if potentially a tad confusing (you're right, you DO need to read it carefully).
Author's Response: Thank you for your well-thought out, critical review, Steven. =) I really appreciate that you took the time to do this. *smiles*
And you\'re not misreading, actually. Rose does indeed love her cousin: \"... and you started eying him even though he was your best friend and your cousin.\"
So, yes, I suppose it could be termed \"incest,\" but for the fact that this is unrequited love. Like Rose says, you can\'t help whom you love. It just happens. And if you happen to love your cousin--1st, 2nd, it doesn\'t even matter--then so be it. You are simply physically and emotionally attracted to that other person.
And this was meant to be vague, so I\'m glad you found that to be true. Again, thanks so much.
Well, I typed up a fairly long review for this lovely little tale before Mugglenet decided that five minutes was FAR too long for me to exist without doing anything and logged me off without even so much as a "Morkhan, may I?"
So, in summary.
Story = funny. In the 'Sweet Mother of Magpie, I need oxygen to live! Stop making me laugh!" sort of way.
Characterization = Perfection. Like Scarlett Johanson, only I don't want to do unspeakable things to this story in my bedchamber.
YES, I DO!!!
My fic aspirations = ruined. You absolute son of a Nargle whore. I'm never going to be able to write my George-fic now. There's no way I'll be able to measure up to this.
In even shorter summary: gg
Author's Response: Ewww, I hate it when MNFF does that. Thank you, though! Hahahahaha, this review made me giggle like WHOA. Unspeakable things. I definitely say go ahead with the George story if you\'re that insanely hilarious... PLEASE!
And how did you know my dad was a Nargle? 0_0
