I just wanted to say thank you for your fic! I have these horrid little monsters that my mom calls children staying at my house with us right now and your fic provided a perfect escape from them! ( I hid in the backyard with my dog and read for about an hour ) Anyhoo, thanks for saving my sanity! Keep on keepin' on!


Author's Response: Oh, you're absolutely welcome! Gah..! I know how you feel about little kids running around the place! My cousins just moved to Dubai, and they're over a lot, so they're all over lol...!

This sounds promising. I'm supprised I'd not found your story earlier!


Author's Response: Thank you. I hope it lives up to your expectations; sometimes it turns out to be rather different than some anticipate. Here's to hoping it's the story you've been searching for, eh? *grins*

I have just now finished reading your story. It was bloody briliant! I was wondering how you would tie everything together, and I did not expect that very last part at all. I started reading this a while a go but had to drop it for a few weeks because of final exams. I started up on chapter twenty today and couldn't make myself put it down! You are an amazing author, and I love your writing style! Thanks for a look into another realm of the characters that we all know and love! I can't wait to see more from you.

All the best,

Author's Response: Thank you!!! :~) It's wonderful to hear - well, read - such lovely reviews; definitely good for the writer's ego. lol I'm happy you found time and motivation to come back to the story, and that it hopefully met your expectations. If you're interested in Regulus' story, my current project The Voice of All the Gods is posted up through Chapter 9. Thanks again for such an encouraging and personal review. You made my day. :D Cheers! kat

Oh my gosh! That was probably one of the sweetest Draco Hermione moments I have read Ina while! This fic was amazing. The perfect length along with the balance of their different relationships ( work friends etc. ) made this a great read. Thanks for writing!


Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang by SK witch
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 8]


The smell was powerful, so magnificently intense…so very, very alluring.

There was a war going on. Fear was prevalent everywhere and these species were free to roam the city of London. Free to breed…free to feed on whoever they desired. It’s one thing to get afraid when being attacked, but the fear goes to a whole new level when you can’t see your attacker…

Follow the lives of two Muggles running through the narrow alleyways of London, when they’re suddenly confronted by one of the most feared creatures in the Wizarding world.

Oh my word! That was amazing! I was completely shocked! A demeantor?!? Wow... I really don't know how to describe this. Well, I loved how you showed both points of view. I don't think I have ever viewed them as creatures of thought. I just took them for mostly instinct. That was a pretty amazing idea for a one shot. I honestly was shocked and amazed when I finished reading this. I absolutely loved it!!!!!!!

How's that for a rambling review? Hahaha!
