I'm 17, and I wish I was a story-book character.
I read because it makes me happy, and I write because it makes me even happier.
That is all!
I don’t usually review, but I have to say that I love your story!
It had caught my eye a couple of times, though I thought – ‘Nah, not my thing’. But I’m so glad that I stopped the other day and thought that I’d give ol’ Voldy a chance. I love that you can give depth and a whole other angle to a character about which everyone initially thinks – ‘HATE HIM!’, :D.
You write the whole thing very believably, interestingly and really well. Your characterisation is great too! I can be reading something about Tom and think – ‘That is SO Voldemort-y!” and yet I don’t hate him for it, which is new and strange for me! Haha.
I also like the little things that you add in there. Like, the whole ‘Biting the dust’ as being inspiration for the ‘Death-eaters’ thing. I love little details like that.
It was a hefty job, catching up with the chapters, but I’m there now and good for you because I loved them :)! The latest chapter was great, though the ending was unbearable – so update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review and for giving a slightly different story a chance. I'm trying to keep him as much in character as possible, and I'm chuffed you noticed the little details! Please keep R&R ing :-)
Boo for writers block! I hope it will let you write more soon! But, yay for odd Pairings! :) - i get bored when everyone writes about the obvious ones!
Author's Response: Yeah, there is nothing like an odd pairing! Well, chapter two is written and betad so I just need to submit it to the archives. I have two other fics in the queue at the moment, though, so there could be a bit of a wait :)
Oh how I love this story! :)
I was drinking a lovely cup of tea and saw that you'd updated 'Deal or No Deal' and almost fell off of my spinny-chair in excitement!
I love how this story is so different, but you still manage to keep it close and familiar with the detail, like Audrey and Victoire. I keep thinking - 'did this actually happen?', it so easily could have. The idea of George/Hermione becomes less obscure the more I read because you write so believeably. I like how you interchanged Hermione with Ron in working alongside George at WWW - is good!
I love it, but I don't know if I can hold out long for another chapter, so upsdate soon!
Author's Response: Thanks, Katie! I hope you didn't spill your tea! I'm glad you like the little details, I want to keep it as believable as possible despite the fact that it's got an Epilogue? What Epilogue? warning. I hope you can hold out a wee bit longer since I haven't finished the next chapter and still need to get it off to my beta! Uni etc. is very busy at the moment unfortunately. Thanks for the review!!!
I really love this strange, little story! Whenever I stumble across really odd pairings, i'm always up for reading them - and this one looks really, REALLY good so far! Please keep writing, I can't wait to see where this is going!
Author's Response: I love odd pairings too, which is what drew me to writing this fic. I had a sudden craving for George/Hermione one day, discovered there weren't many and thought I better write one myself! I'm glad you think it's good so far, hopefully I'll have another chapter up soon, fortunately I'm coming out of a bad bit of writers block :) Thanks for the lovely review!
