Thanking EVERYBODY EVER for the runner-up QSQ given to The Cause. Honestly. It was amazing. Both Marty and I thank you! (I'm sure Remus would as well, but I can't claim ownership of him). I would put the banner up but for some reason it's not working (stupid HTML).

Home Improvement by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 62]

Summary: When Ron Weasley is promoted to a rather high rank in the Auror business, his mother congratulates him by informing him that it's high time he found a place of his own.



Ron may be quite good at his job as an Auror, but he now faces the most difficult challenge of all...



Ridiculously short one-shot that I wrote for some challenge about a year ago and never submitted. It's also my first one-shot that's not about Voldemort and the Death Eaters! Gasp!

=D

I loved it. "Horses can't read books ..." *facepalm* It was very sweet (not in a vomitting way) and very funny. Although if Harry's scarred for life by Martha Stewart, I'm scarred for life by the thought of Ron with a ponytail ... o.0

Congratulations, once again, on a very funny fic! Poor old Ron really did come across a little dense ... but completely believable!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you sooo much! (I\'m a massive fan of your stories, so I did a little fangirl squee when I saw this.) I had to give Ron a ponytail to comply to the canon of my future-gen story where he has one...

Aw, this was a really nice story, with a fabulous ending. The grammar needed some work, there didn't appear to be many question marks when there really should have been, but it was a lovely concept, and Harry hugging Teddy in the rain was a very touching scene. I think the writing needs a little more care, mostly stuff that could be fixed with some proof-reading, but overall it was really nice. So thanks!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review. I know I missed a few grammer things, and I proof-read it twice, and then some one actually did beta it for me, but I\'m sure some things were still missed. Glad you liked the ending, it seems a lot of people did.

Aw! *Bang* I just love little James. Not that he's all that little, but still. It's a great fic! I love how cliched and funny Gemma's fics are, but it's okay that they're cliched, because that's the whole point, and then how in reality it just never works out ... it's so adorable!

*Hugs James*

So cute!

Author's Response: Haha, I absolutely adore James too! He\'s my favourite Marauder of all time :D I\'m trying to work out as non-cliched an ending as possible so it won\'t be like Gemma\'s fics, but because I\'m going through a phase, it\'s going to be pretty tough. Thanks for the review! (:

Can't wait until they get together for real!

Author's Response: Oh, yes, James has very, very bad luck in this story... (rubs hands gleefully) but as almost all fairytales go, this one\'ll have a happily ever after. Thanks for the review! (:

Ooooh, Phia, this is nice! I like it! Have you ever read Two Caravans by Marina Lewycka? Because the first part, with the thoughts of the wolf, is very similar to some parts of that, written from the dog's perspective.

It was a really great start! I always have an overwhelming desire to adopt child!Remus, but if I adopted every fictional kid that I wanted to, I'd be overun with small children! Better to just keep them in the land of fiction, I think ... anyway, I'm going to read the next chapter. Nice fic so far!

Author's Response: No, I haven\'t read that, is it good? I guess it\'s just a standard thing, making animals\' thoughts all disjointed and simple. Probably not giving them as much credit as they deserve, but it works well with stories! And, I KNOW! It was so funny, after writing this, I started feeling really really sorry for Remus, and wishing that I could write myself into the story in order to comfort him! I had imaginary conversations with him and anything! Anyway, thanks Amy for your review!

Love a Duck! by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 120]

Summary: Love a duck! Will he stop at nothing? Voldemort is rapidly taking over, and his Death Eaters are killing Muggle-borns every day. The good news? A mysterious man, known only as The Phoenix, is rescuing people in the nick of time all over England.

Meanwhile, newlywed writer Lily Potter has troubles of her own. For one, her marriage is not turning out to be as great as she'd thought... for another, she's been blackmailed by an old "friend" into turning spy and discovering the Phoenix's true identity.

Thrills, spills, laughs, gasps, song lyrics, and good old swashbucklin' intrigue.

Inspired by Baroness Emmuska Orczy's excellent novel, "The Scarlet Pimpernel," and Frank Wildhorn and Nan Knighton's AMAZING musical by the same name.

But if you're not familiar with either, the story's just all the more suspenseful! All song lyrics used in this story are based on those by Wildhorn and Knighton

SCHMERGO! You made your way into Marauder Era! THIS IS SO COOL! I, LIKE, LIVE HERE!

Yet somehow I managed to miss this. *Shifty eyes* I've, um ... been busy. =D

Love it so far. The accent was hilarious, spot on for his character. My money is already on James for the Pheonix. *prays that it's James*

Great opening chapter! I'm away to the next one!

Author's Response: Yay! Thanks so much! I\'m glad you like this, because your Marauder stories are awesome! I have too much fun writing accents and dialects. As for your theory, well... you shall see!

Now, I'm in love with James, but I can still see where Lily is coming from. Yet ... it WAS hilarious. Oh, James, you make me laugh every time ...

And so do you, Schmerg! So far, this fic is awesome. Just the right amount of nuttiness mixed with tension (a little, anyway) and mystery.

Now if you'll excuse me ... *runs at James madly and hugs the death out of him*

Author's Response: Thanks! I love James as well, but... yeah... he\'s kind of an idiot in this. I\'m really glad you like it. I love mixing nuttiness with an adventure-type story... it keeps things from getting too serious!

Oooooh, I love this fic! I really, REALLY want the Pheonix to be James. It would definitely explain why he's acting ... um ... more unusual, lately. Right? Cos he's trying to stop people thinking he's capable of anything as heroic as the Pheonix? Right? *clutches at straws*

Still. That would be be so coo.

LOVE THE FIC SO FAR! EEEEEEE! Lily and James are so original and wonderful! Yay!

And, as ever, you remain an expert on the Voldemort front. *Bows*

Author's Response: Thanks! *Zips lips as to Phoenix\'s identity*

And I\'m very, very happy that you said my Lily and James were original. I stayed away from this category for so long because the portrayals of these characters are always so similar.

I love writing about Voldemort. I had to include him because I\'ve stopped writing Voldemort humour fics-- everyone does it now, and it\'s not as fun anymore... but since this story has a lot of humour in it, I wanted to put Voldershmookins in there.

I have Lily's writer's conscience. =D And Snapes dot obsession ...

Author's Response: Ah. I just thought you were being gangsta when you said \'coo.\' Yes, dots are my friends... aaaagh, I just did some right there! I overuse those, parentheses, run-on sentences, and CAPS LOCK, and I\'ve somehow managed to make fun of all of those in my fics. *Shrug*

Wow. That's amazing! A really original story. The writing seemed a little clumsy at times, with occasional mistakes (Gryffindor Towel instead of Tower, and when she is listing her sons, she says Ablus James, which I presume means "Albus James", only spelt wrong) but the story and mystery that is incorporated really carries it through! Honestly, I think it's an amazing idea.

As for making it a chaptered fic ... it's a good idea, but I kind of like it how it is, I think it's nice this length - it kind of gives it a rushed, impatient feel, which works with the story, because I would imagine you would get pretty impatient living the same life over and over again ... so it works the way it is, I think.

Congratulations on a really original and interesting fic, anyway!

Author's Response: Thanks for the detailed review, I am really glad you enjoyed it!

Oh, that was so lovely, Schmergo!

Uh ... I'd pick out favourite bits, but I've forgotton a lot of them. It was lovely, but looooong. Okay ... "in your underwear drawer" was fabulous! So was "The Chosen One's Chosen Store" and the other one that was said, but which I forgot.

And the idea about the ear was really ingenious. Very clever, and I loved it. Fred was wonderful all the way through, he really was. Two Elder Wands up!

Author's Response: Thank you so much!!! Your characterization of Fred and George is my favourite that I\'ve seen in fanfiction, so this review really made me happy.

My friend and I now like to say the \'in your underwear drawer\' thing, but we have to make sure we don\'t say it around other people or else they\'d get some mighty strange ideas.

Awww, you quoted my story in complimenting it! ^_^ Thanks!

Summary: This is book two in the "Potter's Pentagon" trilogy. Read "Potter's Pentagon: The Five" first, myesss? Cool.

WARNING: This story contains French people, an internal monologue about a blue orange, adolescent facial hair, good old-fashioned snogging, superstitious truck drivers, a portrait who calls everyone "Mavis," a zoo break-in, some very strange clothes, romantic conflict galore, and Ron Weasley's caffeine addiction. And worst of all, Professor Zabini!

Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard Tournament, and when one of the members of Potter's Pentagon is selected to represent the school, much excitement ensues. Simultaneously, elections are being held for Minister of Magic, and things are getting busy at the Ministry.

Not to mention the fact that Jordan's made a new Muggle friend without informing her of the itty-bitty fact that he's magical, Haley has found an enchanted diary of dubious origin, Ted's met a werewolf from Beauxbatons, and Emma... well, Emma's not having a good year.

And what exactly is Ivy up to, anyway?

Everyone has secrets. But in the end, the truth will have to come out.

Whee! This is moving pretty fast. First Task already over with? Wow. If I were you, and this were a movie, not a fic, I would have put in a montage. Something like this ... *cue rock music in the background*

(Remember for each shot, it holds for about five seconds, and is usually slowly zooming in on the person, or slowly zooming out, or slowly panning the scene, in a very montage way.) Open with Emma tying her hair up to get ready for training. Cut to Haley writing in the diary. Cut to Ivy studying. Cut to Jordan on the computer typing an email (close up on the words “Dear Georgi” as they are typed in). Cut to Ted talking to whatserface, the werewolf girl. Cut to Tyrone checking his hair in the mirror. Cut to Emma hexing a punchbag. Cut to Ivy turning a page in a book. Cut to Haley tapping her chin with her pen, then writing some more. Cut to Jordan typing furiously, and panning the email again, with words like “jealous” and “wish it was me” jumping out. Cut to the other champions doing some training. Cut to Ron blathering on, while Harry stares at a headline about Apple, and is clearly not listening. Cut to Tyrone pointing to himself with both fingers in the mirror and grinning. Cut to Ivy rubbing her eyes. Cut to Ted and weregirl (okay, I forgot her name, sorry. I know it began with A ...) saying goodbye and going in opposite directions. Cut to Emma really laying into the punchbag. Cut to Jordan typing the words “From Jordan”. Cut to Haley shutting the diary and stowing it away. Cut to Ted finding Ivy asleep, and covering her with a blanket. Cut to Emma hitting the punchbag so hard it goes flying. Cut to Jordan pushing “send”. Cut to Harry and Ron leaving the office, Ron knocking back another cup of coffee as Harry shakes his head. As the music hits that final drawn out note on the electric guitar, Jordan would look back at the room with the computer, and then wave his wand and turn out the light just as it finishes.

Yeah, I know. It's not a movie. But still, if it was, and there was a montage, that is SO how it would go.

Anyway. About the actual chapter. I really liked it, because I love how you never know exactly what's going on, and you sort of see things as the characters do. Like when Ivy saw Ted and the girl whose name I forgot - who knew they were friends now? Did Ted realise what she was feeling, or brush it off? What exactly is going on with Ivy anyway? And why wasn't there more Jordan in this chapter? Okay, I was kidding with that last one. It was a good chapter without overdosing on Jordan. It means I'll enjoy it even more when we get to see his thoughts next time!

I want to be friends with all five of the "Pentagon".

Until next time! =D

~Amy

Author's Response: Ahhh, it has to move fast because my story is only thirteen chapters long! I LOVE your montage idea. The parts about Tyrone made me laugh so hard. He WOULD do that.

The weregirl is named Arden. You\'re not the first to mess up her name, so maybe she\'s just not that memorable.

There SHOULD have been more Jordan... but then, there will be more Jordan in later chapters, so it kind of evens out. And you can only take so much Jordan at once! (He wasn\'t in the first one much, if you remember.)

That competition is so cool! I would totally do it if I wasn't so stressed about exams (I'm, uh ... on a break right now).

Ahem. Now. Can I begin with: Eeee! Ted was so cute in the zoo! *Jumps on Ted*. Also, hello, Jordan! "It's a disgusie" trying to sound dignified was hilarious. I love Jordan. He's so adorable. Even though he's good at absolutely everything, except looking stupid.

But I also REALLY loved Ted this chapter. It made me want to ignore my exams (one down ... sixteen to go) and visit the zoo, then just go crazy and run a lot.

Your dream made me laugh! I have dreams like that a lot, where people I know and stuff I've written, and TV I've watched all gets mixed up into one big bizarre party. Although I don't think I've ever made out with my characters, since they're more like my children, and I really don't want to go down that road ...

Back to the story. I knew Apple wasn't evil! Well, maybe he is a little bit. Although he sounds more delusional than evil. Anyway, I knew he couldn't be TOTALLY evil, because he has such good dress sense (I'm not a shallow freak, I'm not a shallow freak, I'm not a shallow - what? Oh, sorry. I was just trying to convince myself of something. Excuse me. I'm not a shallow freak ...).

Hopefully it will turn out that he's not evil at all, he's just confused. How could someone with the name Tancred Apple be evil? Thank goodness I was right. I don't know WHAT would have happened if I turned out to be wrong, and people with good dress sense COULD be evil. My shallow freak principles would be jeopardised forever ...

Also, "horsing around"? *Dies laughing*

=D

(I'm not a shallow freak, I'm not a shallow freak, I'm not a shallow freak ...)

Author's Response: SEVENTEEN EXAMS? Dude... I have seven classes. This is RE-DONK. I am having these funny ideas of you skipping around glomping Ted and Jordan and attacking the characters... which is truly adorable. As for Apple, you\'ll see.. but I think the funniest part of my dream was me snogging Tyrone\'s face off. Because it was EXTREMELY enjoyable in the dream, but in real life, Tyrone is definitely NOT my type. I don\'t go for pretty boys, I don\'t really like jocks, and I prefer scrawny lanky dudes to buff sporty dudes... and I love my smarty nerd guys. Maybe I was busy writing Pride and Prejuiced Plums... if I was in Emma\'s mindset when I fell asleep, that may have explained the Tyrone loving.

\r\nP.S. I actually AM a shallow freak, but I\'m proud of that. It\'s why I never write deep stories!

The "schmell dem shlurpees burnin'" story IS the coolest thing ever. Interesting stuff like that never happens around here. Although possibly even funnier than that was "We're rehearsing a play" (Monsters inc. reference?). That made me laugh so much, especially imagining the look on Ron's face. And I totally wasn't expecting Giorgi to have made most of that stuff up. That was pretty cool. Well, not that she was making it up. That you'd written it so that it was as much of a shock to us as it was to Jordan (speaking of Jordan ... JORDAN!). Or, at least, it was a shock to me, I can't really speak for everyone else. But I generally believe whatever anyone tells me anyway. So maybe it's not that amazing. But I was impressed. =)

I don't know why you didn't like this chapter. I thought it was pretty fun. Although when they kept stopping to talk about their feelings, it was kind of like, "GO! Stop it! Apologise later! Run!" but I guess it made it a better storyline because they didn't quite make it, and Haley had to take over. Which was also pretty cool, by the way.

One of my favourite lines was also Jordan (JORDAN!)'s: "I tend to be." It was so Jordan and adorable.

So, anyway, back to more Chemistry revision for me ... *head hits desk*. If I didn't have all this work to do, I would totally enter your art challenge. *Sigh*.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I always like getting reviews from you... yep, the \'rehearsing a play\' was totally a Monsters,Inc reference. I\'m just that kind of person... can\'t come up with anything original. ^_^ Yeah, see, I hate this chapter because it\'s like, you start up the lawnmower, you start mowing grass and... the motor dies. And it comes back on, and it dies again. The action keeps stopping for the weirdest things. But I couldn\'t figure out how to fit these plot points in any other ways. I HATE CHEMISTRY. IT IS MY WORST CLASS AND MY LEAST-FAVOURITE. And until this year, I was Li\'l Miss Science Whiz. What kind of science is it, anyway? It\'s just math in disguise. And I am bad at math... but weirdly, I\'m better at math than chemistry.

"He was dressed in a tailored pinstriped suit and a white shirt with several buttons undone, no tie, and what looked suspiciously like red Converse high-tops."
Well, he has my vote! ;D Okay, that was a joke, I would never vote for someone with the last name Apple.

Uh ... reading that first part of the review, I realised that I came off really, REALLY shallow. I'm not actually that shallow. Let's try again, this time without coming across a shallow airhead.

Ahem ... I love Jordan! (Oh, darn, it didn't work). He's my favourite! The idea of him switching things around to make Hogwarts into a Muggle school is just ingenious, and I can't wait to read more about the things he says ... I can kind of see how Potions and Chemistry would fit, as well as Maths and Arithmancy, but the other subjects are all pretty unique. Hmm ... Charms is supposed to be creative, so I guess that could be like Art ...

Or maybe not. Good luck, is all I can say! I'm intrigued about this Lee fellow, as well. How can he talk through the diary if it isn't a Horcrux? I thought the reason Tom could talk through it was because it had a part of his soul in it? Oh well, maybe that's all part of the mystery.

Can't wait to find out who's the champion. Hugs to Jordan! Not that he'd want them ...

Author's Response: Yay, I always love your reviews. Hahaha, the comment about Apple made me laugh. True, true. Tancred Apple is possibly the most ludicrous name I can think of besides Mark \"Sparky\" Von Boopaloopalstein.

Jordan is fun to write about because the thing is... you know how dorky boys are often really into fantasy/sci-fi? Well, Jordan is a dorky boy who lives in a fantasy world, and he\'s really into the Muggle world. Go figure.

As for Lee, well, that\'s a mystery!

Hehehe, astute there, with your \'not that he\'d want them\' comment.

Aaaaahhhh!!!!!

That was me exploding. JORDAN! JORDANJORDANJORDAN! He was so authoritative and adorable! And even though I don'tget the last line about the pigtails yet, I still found it really funny.

Seriously, this is the best chapter yet. Probably because it has Jordan at his most adorable. I just want to run at him and squeal. Is that weird?

I can't wait for Pride and Pre-juiced Plums (Funny name!). I got an email about a week ago telling me it had been put up (probably when you submitted it) but it wasn't there. But I'm already excited. I hope there's Jordan.

Speaking of whom ... JORDAN! Eeee! So sweet and full of authority with his little plan of action. Oh, and I share Haley's thing about team names. I always have to have a team name that is interesting, such as Team Sparkle.

Great chapter! My favourite so far! I seriously can't wait for the next one, it will be brilliant. Oh and one last thing ...

“He’ll read anything you shove in front of him.”

I think we're soulmates.

=D

Author's Response: I love my Jordan.... and I\'m very glad that you do. The thing about pigtails was, when Emma did the task earlier, someone commented that she always wore pigtails when she was being tough. You know what, I was hoping some people besides me would like Jordan. Pride and Pre-juiced Plums actually has three chapters up right now... There is very little Jordan in it, though, because it would involve HUGE spoilers for the third book.

Date: 02/20/08 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1: In Which Jordan Spends Most of the Chapter Being Surprised

I wasn't being sarcastic when I was lamenting about Apple and his taste in clothes (SO GOOD). Because pinstripes are basically ... well, prefect. And I wear Converse religiously, and have done for, like, four years. And, as someone already mentioned, he sounded a lot like David Tennant's Doctor from Doctor Who (who pretty much = adorable) so I liked him for that as well. But I imagine by the time the queues have reopened and the chapter is up, my broken heart will be pieced back together with the cellotape of time, so it will be okay.

And I'm not being sarcastic either. This is just how I talk a lot of the time (or rather, how I write, because I don't have enough time to think about it when I'm talking, so if I try and talk how I do on paper, it comes out a garbled mess and I get funny looks).

Anyway. I'll just have to go back to fangirling Jordan. Because, you know ... JORDAN!!

I understand about hating Quidditch / trying to avoid writing about it. Suddenly Jordan winning in the first ten seconds makes a lot more sense. And I LOVE the crazy psychotic team captain Jordan. ACTUAL LOVE. It's so cute! In a sweet, little child having a tantrum kind of way , not in a romantically cute way. I want to pat him on the head or something. But then I want to pat a lot of people on the head.

Well, anyway, thanks for updating! I don't normally review the same chapter twice, but I didn't want my heartache to be misinterpreted as sarcasm (though I can see where you're coming from with the sarcasm, because reading my review back, I do sound a little odd. But I AM odd, and I form these kind of "SQUEE! I love this person based on their fashion sense / name / deed they've done / insert other random crazy reason here alone!" It often leads to heartbreak, but it's true. My friend gets sick of me because I have "married" just about everyone in our History textbook because they were misunderstood, and several fictional characters and people off TV, too).

I'm not sure where I'm going with this. So I'll stop now.

YAY Jordan!

Author's Response: Well, of course I gave Apple the kind of clothes that I find attractive! ^_^ And I\'ve worn black converses religiously since sixth grade (the left one says LLAMA and the right one says DUCK), have gone through thre different pairs but all the same size because I\'ve had size 4 and a half feet ever since 4th grade.

I just thought you were being sarcastic because most people were like, \"I HATE APPLE\" all along, and then \"I KNEW HE WAS EVIL!\"

One of the things that I love about Jordan is that he hates being loveable in any possible form. ^_^ *Ruffles his hair*

Oh gosh... historical figures... let\'s just say I\'m a promiment member of a French Revolution website and did a big old project on Robespierre because he was misunderstood. I\'M A ROYALIST AND I STILL ADMIRE HIM. That man is kind of adorable, besides, and is one of the only people who ever lived who was shorter than me. (I exaggerate... I\'m five foot two and a half, and I guess there are people who are shorter than me... just not guys.)

For some reason I feel like sobbing. Only in a good way. I'm such a sucker for believing in yourself and conquering the world (uh, metaphorically) cliches at the moment. Even the song 'Defying Gravity' from Wicked makes me want to cry. In a good way. So all this finding yourself and growing up and sticking together has really got to me. In a good way.

Gosh, it's going to be really hard to pick favourite and least favourite OCs. Well, okay, Jordan for the favourite. But I also love Haley and Ted (TED! Why did I never notice how adorable he was until the last two chapters? It was the zoo that did it) and Vladislav and Giorgi and Apple, even though he was a bit wackadoo. I'm trying really hard to think of a least favourite OC but I can't. Except for Marina, but she's been banned. I even like Arden, because she reminds me of me three or four years ago (until I finally started making some really good friends at my school, and stopped being so annoying and shy to the point of stupidity. My past self REALLY annoys me. Luckily, now I'm more like Ivy crossed with a slightly toned down Haley). Um ... ooh, I know! My least favourites are those two guys with the weird names beginning with S who rigged the tournament for Apple. Yeah. I hate those guys. Yeesh. What were you thinking? =D

Also ... LEE IS LILY! I TOTALLY DIDN'T GUESS THAT! I read the theory in a review, but I didn't really hold much by it. I thought it was Lee Jordan (Hey, Lee Jordan's last name is Jordan! I never realised until now!). But it makes much more sense for it to be Lily, especially if James or someone had shown her the trick with the map, and she decided to do the same with a diary. I loved the way she was like "Why is everyone asking me that nowadays?" I love Lily. Especially when she's a little bit kooky. Which is why I wrote so many fics about her being kooky.

Although I don't know why you had to include that bit about Hagrid dying. Yeesh. Way to bum everyone out. Unless that was mentioned before now, and I just forgot. Whatever. Poor Hagrid.

Meanwhile, what past could Ron possibly have that could land him in serious trouble? That he once bought a book with tips on how to attract the opposite sex, then gave it to Harry for a birthday present and swore that it taught him all he knew?

Oh, wait. When you put it like that, you can kind of see why he'd want to keep it quiet. =D

Anyway, to conclude, I loved the chapter, I loved the book as a whole, and I love the series. I love Jordan, and also now Ted, although Jordan will always be my special favourite for old time's sake. Not that I didn't love Ted before, but ... the zoo thing means that I love him even more now. I'm also dreading someone dying in the next book. That's going to majorly suck. Are you sure you can't change it at the last moment? Please? No? Fine. Be that way.

Thanks for keeping me entertained! Still muddling through these exams ... so it's especially fun to take a break and read this every now and then.

Author's Response: Awww, thank you! I\'m the cheesiest person in the world, so I love sticking in all of these cliches! (And, yes, \"Defying Gravity\" does make me cry, too. Even when I\'m singing it. Though that might just be because of my terrifying voice! Also, the soundtracks to Tarzan and Brother Bear make me cry. DARN YOU, PHIL COLLINS!)

\r\nYour OC preferences seem to be extreeemely similar to mine. Jordan first, closely followed by Ted and Haley. I think my personal least favourite is Ivy, but then, I\'m so different from her that I have a bit of trouble relating to her. I\'m actually really pleased that you didn\'t guess who Lee was... I was worried that absolutely everyone would. And I really adore your kooky Lily (not enough people write her kooky!), so I just thought I\'d mention that.

\r\nAs for Hagrid, I mentioned a couple times throughout the first and second books that he\'d died, but the real reason why I killed him was that I was a hundred percent sure that JK Rowling would kill him in the seventh book. I killed off all of the characters that I thought were going to die, not necessarily who I wanted to die. (For example, Lucius Malfoy. I loved that jerk. But I thought he\'d die for sure.)\r\n

Well, there wasn't QUITE enough Jordan (who's a fangirl? Not me, that's for sure) but I still loved it. The Harry Potter books being real was really cool, and it was awesome how Harry was like "Yeah, one time ALL the kids had them ..."

I'm not sure about this Arden character. I can't dislike her, exactly, because in truth, she's a bit like me in some ways. It doesn't seem like it on the internet and stuff, but I'm actually kind of a shy person. Or, I used to be, I'm a lot more confident now though. But still, I don't dislike her. I'm hoping for a really cheesy, finding yourself storyline with her, when she slowly becomes more fun and confident through spending time with, uh, "Theo" and his friends.

In regards to Haley, I don't actually want her to stop calling people things like "Tedward", because it's so fun and entertaining, and who DOESN'T love people like that? Apart from whatserface, the mean Slytherin girl. Charybdis. How do you pronounce that, by the way?

Okay, well, to wrap things up (because I've NEVER written ANYTHING that rambles, especially not this review ...) I thought it was a fun chapter, and I'm really looking forward to when the story picks up, now that we have all these beginings.

Author's Response: There will definitely be more Jordan later in the story! Though not next chapter, I\'m afraid... next chapter is very Emma-full.

There is a bit of a cheesy storyline with Arden, but she\'s also a bit of a... red herring. You\'ll see what I mean by that later, but let\'s just say Ivy gets the wrong idea about her.

The mods are discussing whether I\'m allowed to keep the part about the Harry Potter books being real. That\'s such a part of this world that it doesn\'t make sense to me to not mention it in a future-gen story! But it may have to be edited out if the mods don\'t like it.

Haley will still be the same re-donkulous Haley as ever. But she will also have more... I\'m trying to find the right word... awesome moments? And she learns how to use her hyperness and adorableness to trick people, which is always fun. Because the thing is, Haley is smart. She just doesn\'t always act like it.

Charybdis\'s name is pronounced car-IB-diss, I think. It\'s from \"The Odyssey,\" that old Greek myth. Scylla and Charybdis were monsters, a whirlpool and a many-headed beast, I believe. You shall see more of Charybdis, little jerk-face that she is.

WHAT? NOOO!!!

I loved Apple! I was fooled! Tricked by those darned pinstripe suits. Hoodwinked by those dratted Converse trainers! This is terrible! Such a betrayal! How can someone with such perfect taste be apparently evil? SUCH PERFECT TASTE!

Anyway. I don't know why I didn't review the last few chapters, because I don't even remember reading them ... I just had to do a serious catch up. Let's see ... what happened ...

1) Ted and Ivy. SQUEEE! So adorable! Love it!
2) Jordan (JORDAN! EEE!!!) winning the Quidditch game in ten seconds. Uh ... that was ... anti-climatic. I wouldn't want to be one of the Beaters in that team, if all the training was for nothing. But still, it was Jordan, so ... EEEE!!!! LOVE!!!! HUGS!
3) Emma winning on moral grounds. Unexpected. And kind of hard to follow. But that's because I'm not in a particularly intelligent mood today.
4) Ivy being an animagus. Awesome.

Hooray! Confetti! Looking forward to the next one. Sorry it took me so long!

Author's Response: Helllooooo! Were you being sarcastic or serious about Apple? Because it sounded like sarcasm, but if you were serious, I\'m sorry.... at least there are still plenty of other lovely people in this story to fangirl!

I agree about the Jordan game... I hate Quidditch, I really do. I had to write it somehow... so I did that. Especially since I wanted ol\' Jor-jums to get a self-esteem boost. However, I do feel bad for Beaters like Tyrone and Chasers like Emma, \'cos they didn\'t do anything. >:( I feel like any sport where one player matters so much is unfair anyway.

I think the Emma part was hard to follow. I wanted to get it over with so we could leap into the \"Crazed Stop-Apple Mission Of Insanity\" of the next couple chapters.

Thanks for reading, and I\'m so glad you liked the Ted/Ivy! This was the first story I ever wrote with romance, so I was a bit insecure. (I did it about two years ago...)
