*claps* well done!!! I'm such a huge HP fan and it felt like a little continuation of the books for me. You may not have stuck completely to the characters exactly like they are in the books, but I really enjoyed reading your story!! I'm planning on studying English in college I'd like to say, and I know the hard work that goes into writing a story!! I laughed so hard at the Luna thinking Snape was a vampire part!! :D v funny!! I wasn't very taken with Harry daring Hermione to kiss Ron; however I liked the notes they sent b/w them the next day (Hermione not accepting apology until Ron said "You're very pretty" - funny! Although she is smart too so maybe you should have included that in the note - think about how she lets them borrow her notes/hw in the books, if they compliment her study skills! I think you should have said that, I know Ron doesn't just value Hermione because she's simply "pretty". You know?:D) Anyway, overall, I really enjoyed it!! ;-) well done, please keep updating! Thanks:D xx
Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write to me! I'm glad you felt the story, even if my characterization isn't always perfect! I studied some English Literature in college, and I know you'll enjoy it. There's so many subjects to choose from! I was never, ever bored. I'm glad you liked the bit about passing notes. Ron does know how smart Hermione is, and could easily have complimented her on it, but instead he went to what he thinks is the most appreciated compliment a girl can hear: "You're very pretty". Lucky for him, it put a smile on Hermione's face. She's *always* hearing about how smart and bookish she is, so I thought she deserved some new praise for a change. Plus, it's the start of some Ron/Hermione flirting.... ;)
Don't house elves refer to themselves in the third person?
