"I'm no Ravenclaw, but I finally learnt to take no for an answer." When James stops asking Lily out, she tells him that's not Quidditch!
the teen did what came naturally. He chased. The corners of his mouth curled up at the parallel between a redhead and a red Quaffle.
Perfect!!! Just abs perfect!!!
I was never a fan of James/Lily fics... But this one shot was ubber awesome!!!
Obviously, I loved all the Quidditch-ish remarks. And their addorable flirting with Chasing techniques!!! Hehehehe!!!!
Great story!!! :)
I was never a huge James/Lily fan because I thought it was so sad how they died...and then Jo kills off my one true pairing. Oh, the irony!
Thank you so much for reading the story! You made my night sparkly. :)
Summary: The Dursleys have left Privet Drive and are in hiding with Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle. Hestia and Mr. Dursley are constantly fighting, Petunia is avoiding the wizards at all costs, and Dedalus is trying to make them all the best of friends. Meanwhile, Dudley discovers he has an interest in Harry's world, but his parents are less than pleased when they find out.
Owh!! That Chap End Note was not calming!!! Evil evil evil writer!! By evil I mean evilly gifted writer!!
I really enjoyed this chapter, especially Duddley's quick thinking and little bits and pieces of help!! Good boy Duddy!!! ^_^
It was nice to see Lockhart again, too! The poor fellow. At least he was able to give some help to the good guys! ^_^
The only thing I did not like as much... was the death eater accepting a candy in the middle of a fight, from a suspicious looking boy... C'mon even Death Eaters aren't supposed to be THAT thick!!!! Just an observation about the guy's idiocy! (although it's slightly fitting, if we consider that Voldy accepts guys like Crabbe and Goyle into his service)
Anyhow... loved it!! I can't wait for the reactions of everyone to the youngsters interference!! Way to go guys!!! ^_^
If it turns out Dudders is a Wizard, I'm having a cow. And loving your story!!! ^_^
Summary: Callie and Lia, a Gryffindor and a Slytherin. A lady and a tomboy. Two opposite souls. Two sisters. Separated at birth by circumstances they are determined to discover... and undo. Yes, after being reunited, the siblings plan to reunite their parents as well. Let’s see them accomplish House Unity, too!
“It’s our rule not to dredge up past things, remember?”This rule is about to be broken.
~Inspired by a worldwide beloved film.
You are bloody kidding me!!!! I was reading it assuming it did not involve my fave (never-in-a-million-years-possible)pairing!!!!
Just becuse I loved the Parent Trap... And it turns out Mum and Dad are Herms and Draco!?!?!?!?!
It usually takes me at least up to the third chapter to get hook up with a fic. From the moment Dad started fussing over suitors, I loved it! So that'd be like, fifth paragraph!!! Kuddos writer!!!
The way you portrayed this Callie... She's soo addorably Slytherin!! I mean Slyhterin, but charming and (potentially) good!!
Since I simply can't wait to devour the remaining posted chapters, I beg your pardon for not dwelling on a more consistent review. Honestly, can't wait!!!! ^_^
Author's Response: I can't believe I haven't noticed this squee-inducing review before. I'm so cackling-pleased I surprised you, Ceci dearest! Mwahahaha! :D
Thalia is a PLATE full!!! Honestly!! I LOVE it when you see a nice healthy mixture of Gryffering or Slythindor... ;)
She's just such a tomboyish minx!!!! ^_^
I loved the Quaffle detail about Uncles Ron and Harry. And the fact that she lives within such a close distance from the Burrow... Oh! And how Hermione keeps daydreaming about Draco!!!
BTW, it was pretty obvious in the last chapter who the mother was... At least for a Dramione fan!!
Gone devour another chapter!!!
I'm so very puzzled to learn who will end up in Gryffindor and who in Slyherin. I suspect they have potential for any house. Though Callie seems hell bent on taking the Green...
And so very curious about the reason for the fall out. I mean, if they hocked up, why did they fight? (meaning Mum and Dad)
Loving it even more!!!! ^_^
I do, I do, I do!! I'll read it till the end!!!
Great writing!! Your Malfoy-ish dialogs kill me!!!
“And all idiotic principles about blood were completely banished from my mind when I fell in love with a certain half-blood wench eleven years ago.”
Honestly!!! Brilliant!!!! ^_^
I love the relationship between Lucius and Callie!!! They're soo sweet!!! And he plays golf!!! Trust it to Lucius to like a snob sport!!
I'd like to see some more Narcissa, too. The little I've read is too good, not to make me beg for more!!! ^_^
This is going to be soo good!!!
Gone for my next fix, I mean, chapter!!!
Looooove the rhyme!!! AND the fact that said chapter is already posted!!!
Soooo, you'll excuse me if this review is merely.... BRILLIANT!!!
Kidding!! It was too lovely not to leave a coment!! The hair changing was a good one! I'd like to see (and I suspect I'll) Callie's POV on that almost-run in. I hinted that the girls will have a bit of parental rubbing-in at first. Like that stunt Lia pulled after seeing Callie with Draco?
And SUCH a lovely exchange between Lia and her Uncles!! If they pull the twin swapping stunt like in the Parent Trap... it's going to be hillarious!!
Oh, and Lia knows!!!! Darn!! Maybe Draco will get Callie to be listed under a false surname? That way the climax will be post-poned a bit!!
Alright, I'll admit there are several things more worth comenting!! I'm apollogizing for not doing so... Hope you'l find it in your heart to forgive me, but I HAVE to read next chapter... NOW!!!
Loving every word!!!
I loooooooooooooooove the new notes!!!!!!!
It's lovely to hear it from the girls, as if she'd just written it down on her secret diary!!! Loooovely!!!!
And know we know, why Hermione's photos don't show in the papers. Perhaps a part of the agreement?
I like the explanation... the fact that Lia grew up hearing all about Draco Malfoy anecdotes!!
Question... where they ever married? Even for a short time?
And Draco let her go more than once? Do you mean the cannon escape from the manor, or something of your own invention? This story is JUST soo perfect!!!!
Oh! BTW, thanks for keeping our lovely twins, alive!! Are Tonks and Remus still around too?? That'd make this just about better than the original series!!!
^_^ Lucilla, I addore your fic!!! *sigh*
Author's Response: And I adore you! Your reviews for EVERY chapter make me laugh and giddy and excited to update just to see what you'll say this time. Thank you again and again, Ceci!
Oh my oh my oh my!! Sooooo close yet soo far away!!!
This is so good it's addictive!!!
I think it's a tad unfair that Callie doesn't know who her Mum is, while Lia knows her Dad's (infamous) name!!
The thing with the hats was interesting. I almost pictured the Malfoy party going all secret-agent-like... Funny!
And Herms remembering the pink hat she made for Lia.. I bet she did two hats, didn't she?
Oh! I looooved that scene at Pansy's with Lucius sulking and the whole hole staring business!!
Fave quote: "Pansy laughed. Thea giggled. Narcissa smiled. Callie grinned, albeit bewildered. Draco breathed a sigh of relief and scowled at his father, who only smirked at him." LOL!!
Like it. Love it. Adore it. I repeat, it's addictive!!
Again, my apollogies, off to more reading. Hey! Not my fault if there are a lot of chappies posted up there!!
Author's Response: Kaiserin. It's been a long time since a reader has made me laugh and giggle and squee. Thank you for you for your enthusiasm and for taking the time to pause in between chapters to review. Thank you! Read on and please continue to tell me what you think! :)
This chapter was absolutely brilliant!!! I addored it!!
Bet I sound a bit monotonous right?
Anyhow... I had a feeling Lia would end up in Slytherin and Callie in Gryffindor. My only doubt was caused by Callie's words earlier about wanting to give Slytherin back its old glory... But then, Lia is the one with the blatant taste for rule bending, I can tell.
They made their second friend... Kia and Lizzy/Nelly. And they got swapped, too. I smell a quartet of lovely skunky first-years in the mix!! And the smell is as good as that of s'mores!! (BTW, I couldn't wait for you to tell us, I googled s'mores up!!) Yummy!!!
The Head Girl sound nasty... and conceited!! Not liking her...
The letters were a GREAT touch. The same lines and the ranting Lia did on their encounter!!
And she knows they're sisters... what will she do? Will she tell her? I bet Mum and Dad figured it out from the data on the letters they've met each other? I mean, what are the odds, Herms, same middle name, eleven-years-old... She's a sharp girl. She'll hypervent!! Poor Herms!!!
I really shouldn't know (need to sleep) but I'l read just one more....
As usual, GREAT chap!! My fav so far!!! ^_^
That wasa tad short.... But filled qith data...
Draco was a bit obvious on his partiality towards Maura Granger, wasn't he?
I REALLY want the girls to meet!!
And, obviously, I'm of to read one more chap, before bed! If I'm sleepy tomorrow at work, I'll blame it on your great writing!! Tut-tut, shame on you... LOL!!!
Impeccable. Refresh my memory, have I ever used it to describe any of your chaps? They all are great, but I do try to find new adjetives to keep it fresh.
And you don't make it easy. There are only so many synonims for 'perfect', you know?
But I am in pain to know WHAT was that made all hell break loose on our favourite couple... the wait, oh, the wait!
The reason, my realm for the reason!
Alrighty, very random attempt at a review over. Keep the great chaps coming, even the unexpected ones! LOL!
Author's Response: LOL, thanks, Ceci! There's an online thesaurus for your synonym needs! Hehe. Thanks so mucho. I can only hope to deliver good enough chapters. I'm so glad you like them and even think them perfect! ;)
I think Callie and Lia are the perfect mix!!
^_^ The plot thickens... The Hermione Granger Fund... Interesting. Wonder who's the mastermind behind that one!
And Draco and Pansy! That scene between them was awesome!!! Pansy acting all annoyed but still going with the flow...
Can't picture Draco in a cottage either, BTW!
Uhm... the "frictions" are amusing actually!! Kia and Nelly don't seem to get along, I wonder if there's a chance that'll change or they're doomed to continue with the trademark Gryffindor-Slytherin archrivalry.. tun tun tun tun... Only time will tell.
I'm more concerned about Lia's determination of telling her "half" sister about her alledgedly unholy conception... *shudders* That's bound to get violent....
I've alrealy used brilliant too many times. So this time I'll go with ripping!!! The chapter, I mean!!! Kuddos!
Peals before swine!!!
Hermione Charms teacher!!! Soo fitting...
Now, don't you tell me, Janus will be fired too. That'd be just soo perfect!!
So, let me guess? The agreement says she can't "see" Callie, but there's nothing about teaching her, right? PERFECTO!!!!!
Poor Professor Flitwik... :( He's one of my very faves, you know... I'm soo saw she had to go...
Will Hermione get a suitor anytime soon? Someone our lovely soon-to-be dynamic duo will have to dispose of????? Maybe this Julius guy? Or perhaps we'll have a cameo of Viktor?
^_^ Spellbound by this bewitching piece of creative writing!!! XOXO
POR LAS BARBAS MULTICOLORES DE MERLIN!!!!
This chapter was SOOO SOOO SOOO incredibly... I don't even have words!!!!! I mean!!! I feel like screaming and tap dancing and jumping up and down giggling like mad!!!!
Minerva's words of welcome made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! ^.^ That was just about the most perfect welcoming speech that could be written for PROFESSOR Granger!! (won't get tired of that, ever!)
The allergy thingy, was lovely as well. I mean Lia fussing over Callie like that...
And Madame Prince's antics. Priceless!!!
And Nick!!! Sir Nick!! Trust it to a ghost to be unrelated to the matters of the living around him and unwillingly unveil SUCH a secret.
BTW, I LOOOOOOOOOOVED the fact that you made him assume Callie being Ron's daughter!! Another priceless moment!!!
I can't wait to see Callie's reaction to that. Her response... Does she believe it? How does she react to her mother being there, then? Will she tell Lia? What will SHE say?
Gods!!!!! You're TOO good to be true writer!! I'm telling you!! Amo tu fic!!! Positively besoted with it!! Muack!
Author's Response: I love the ALL-CAPS in this review. Especially that part in Spanish. :)) And oh, the multiple exclamation points!!! Must have really done good with the chapter! Thanks again, Kaiserin! :))
Why oh Why do you do this!?!?! You seem determined to make me insomniac with your writing! I can't possibly NOT go on reading now...
Minerva's "ehem".... just the WAY you wrote that chapter. The back and forth of POV's.... It was impeccable!!!! *sigh*
I'm terribly sorry, but I simply CAN'T wait for more!!!
Author's Response: I'm sorry! But I'm really not. It says something about the success of each chapter if the reader keeps saying, just one more, just one more. LOL. :)) Thanks, Kaiserin!
I'm a-okey with updatesbeing a tad late... if it means the story keeps stretching and stretching! Lovely!!!
I adore seeing this flashbacks of how and why the love-birds became love-birds! LOL!
Pierra and Pietro seem intriguing! I like the idea of someone non magical giving Bellatrx the chills!
Author's Response: Ceci is back! Thanks, dearest! Glad you took note of the flashbacks. Yes of course, the love of the lovebirds has to be revealed, right, right? :D Pierra and Pietro... yesh!
All I have to say is BUSTED!!! Hehehehe!!
Hehehehe!! Vengeance! Goody girls!!
Loved the Bloob!! Hehehehe!! Uncles Gred and Forge rock and roll. I wish I had a couple of those of my own! LOL!
Author's Response: I love the Blob, too. Geez, I want one. :D Thanks as ever, Ceci!
