Summary: It's Harry Potter's first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. But his little sister, Kata Potter, still has a year to go. She's still in Little Whinging. And nothing is the same. Her brother is gone, her friends have changed, and she's been told to trust no one. All Kata has left is an assignment from her teacher: find and catalog the twenty things that make her world go 'round. Maybe Kata's too young for the magic, but she's going to have her own adventures... adventures that will take her from Little Whinging to London, a police station, the back of a train, a stage with a bright light... and maybe even to Hogwarts itself.

Twenty Things is a story about finding yourself, your friends, your secrets, and your past, and hacking it all into some sort of future.

Hi Eva!

I just wanted to tell you that I think you're doing a fantastic job with this story. Kata's character is so well-rounded; like a true person. She is very human, and I think that is the basis of any good writing. So, keep up the good work! I also love her name- mostly because my name is Katha and when I was growing up everyone called me Kata :). Did you mention you made a Facebook for her, because I couldn't find it.
Anyway, cheers, really looking forward to the next bit, Don't be too long!

Author's Response: Hi, Katha! So great to hear from you, I love any and all feedback and I ALWAYS love hearing good things about Kata. The next chapter is definitely in the works, but it's very long and complicated, because I need to begin tying up loose ends... meh. Anyway, yeah, Kata has a Facebook-- I'm pretty sure she's registered as Katarine Potter. I have plans to use to Facebook for my plot-related things if I continue with the rest of the Kata "books", but for now it's just cute. Thanks again, and I'm working as fast as I can! -Eva

Haven't finished reading the fic yet, but having you mention Wagner, and specifics, made me so happy! Was it Rienzi you had in mind? And if you're holding the same as Dumbledore's views- try listening to the Tristan Overture with Barenboim conducting the Met. Will convert anyone! :) Can't wait to finish reading it, and have to say that I read a lot of your one-shots because they, for lack of better words, fit the 'short story' form so well and really give body to the characters. Cheers!

Author's Response: YES! Oh, I'm so excited! Yes, yes, it was the Rienzi Overture. I do find it a bit lighter than some of Wagner's other works, but no, I don't agree with Dumbledore. I'd give anything to see The Ring at the Met next spring! But given that Dumbledore's Chocolate Card says he enjoys chamber music, I can't see him enjoying a lot of Wagner's music. It's just too big to be as intimate as his preferred smaller ensembles. Are you familiar with the other two pieces at all? Thank you so much for reading this story, that little one in the review box was very sad, lol! I'm glad you enjoyed it and so many of my other stories. Thank you so much, you've made my night!! ~Gina :)

Finished it! Can I just say, so interesting you have them commentating on things of their time, like nietszche's übermensch, Strauss and Wagner! Grindelwald using nietszche to support his views, as well as the concert programming.... That's just really well thought out, it must have been fascinating to figure out how each character would react on approaching these things for the first time. Great job! And don't worry about missing the met's ring cycle this season- lepage's new production, with the 'machine', is really, really awful. The old production was so much better! This one is incredibly static- which really doesn't help considering götterdämmerung is like 5 hrs- I looked over at one point and most of the audience was asleep! It doesn't help that they pulled in Luisi to conduct rather than Levine, the whole thing was rather sad- the ny times just about said as much! Now that I've filled up your review box...sorry. :/ but it makes me happy to find another classical musician/ music lover! If you want to private mail me it's under this sn; I'm also in ravenclaw :) cheers!

Author's Response: A belated thank you for the second review! I did send you a PM but I don't know if you got it. I'm watching the Lepage production on PBS now and must say - I quite like it. I could see its faults, but there is too much that I enjoy to write it off. I am loving Bryn Terfel more than anything and think some of the set pieces with the machine just make for a spectacular visual. But that's nothing to do with the story - thanks again for coming back, hope you got my message, feel free to poke me about classical music anytime! ~Gina :)
