Sadness! I felt like I was going to cry because your story was so beautifully written that I could feel every but of Severus's depression and hurt, to be rejected like that! Why couldn't she just marry Snape? Why? Why? Okay, maybe that's going a little too far, but I love the idea you conjure up! It was written, again, very nicely, and everything flowed in harmony. It's going on my favorites!!! Yay!
Author's Response: I know it\'s so sad. :/ Thanks so much for the wonderful review. I\'m very glad you like it! =) GG
This was very, very good. It's funny that your stories make me think so much. Everybody has this idea that Regulus and Sirius always hated each other, and you portray a story where Sirius was worried about him. I liked how you casually slipped Bella in. Regulus is another one of my favorite characters so this fic is definetly going on my favorites... and it's well written! I don't know if I had Andromeda with blonde hair in my mind. I've always imagined her with red hair. You know, Bella has black, Narcissa has blonde, and Andromeda has red. But it doesn't matter really, it's just the way I thought. Good job! Loved it!
Author's Response: Hello again! :) I\'m glad my stories make you think. That\'s means I\'m doing something right, which is always a good thing. :)
I can\'t imagine that Sirius and Regulus always hated each other, I don\'t even know if I believe that I ever hated each other. They are brothers after all. And I think we both have a tendency to slip Bella into stories if at all possible. ;)
And surprisingly, you are the second person to comment on Andromeda\'s hair. I\'m pretty sure the Potter books never tell us what color it is, but I personally have always thought of it as blonde, like Narcissa\'s. That\'s just me. I like to think that Bella as the only one with different hair, no idea why.
Anyway, I\'m glad you enjoyed my story, and thank you so much for reviewing!
Awww! That made me cry! Again, you give a beautiful portrayl of Malfoy family emotion!!! Yay for you! This was a very well written fic. It did you justice. Your writing ability is pheonomonal (Im hopeless without a spell-check). Great job. I look forward to more fics in the future!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I absolutly love your reviews! And I am so glad that you like my stories. I have been writing since I was a young child, but I too, rely heavily on spell check. I also have some grammatical problems that I am slowly mastering. Beneath the Shell was rejected about six times just for comma errors! But I have improved in the short time since that was written.
Thank you again for the review. They always mean so much.
I love Merope fics, firstly, because they're so original. True, there has been a huge upsurge of them lately, but each one is unique. This one was no exception. You portrayed Merope as someone who was quite lost by herself because she really felt like she served no purpose in this world due to the fact that she was nothing but a slave all those years.
I am Merope Gaunt. My age has been lost over time. I have never celebrated a birthday. My father is Marvolo Gaunt. My brother, Morfin. I was nothing more than a slave to them. The only reason they didnít kill me was so that they could have me hold Salazar Slytherinís golden locket. But they are gone. I loved how you slipped in the locket because that's obviously an important item, and it was sort of a bad omen for Merope, like a reminder of her past with the Gaunts. I thought your ability to send messages from ordinary sentences was very well done! You really captured an aura of Merope's situation. She had what she wanted, but she had nothing to do with it, so she sits in her house in boredom. The last line, Tomorrow I will try was one of those lovely, well thought out endings that stay etched in the reader's memory and then they have something to think about the rest of the day. I love those endings and your certainly topped the list! Very well done story. The only thing I would change would be the sentence structure; you have to join up some of your sentences so they're not so choppy. Other than that, perfect! Well done, and keep writing; don't give up!!
Author's Response: thanx for the review, AND the advice, I need them both to continue down the path of... um, i dunno, I just like having to respond to all my readers, i luv u all!!!
Yes, this usually isn't the sort of story I read, but you did a fine job. I know you must struggle getting reviews because there aren't many very people who give them anymore (I am not being bitter!) so I decided your story deserved one. The last line tied things up very nicely. Your paragraphs were fluent, so it wasn't rocky! Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Yes, I suppose there is a certain exposing one\'s self when giving a review. I actually enjoy it, but that\'s just me. Ahaha - I\'m so happy you liked the story!
Very original concept that Harry had a sister. I truly love originality! I'v told many authors this, but it's true. I will refuse to read a story/poem that is not original. The second verse was my favorite, it just flowed so smoothly, as far as rhyming went. I also liked how she called him Harry James instead of Harry. I don't know why, but you hardly ever hear Harry James in poetry, and again, I love originality. I wonder, where did you get the idea for this? Was it just something that popped into your mind, or did you have to sit down and think for a while? I have two poems up, and I could never ryhme like you did.Of course, my fic, Sorrows More Peaceful, is my pride and joy, because of its originality, but still, my poems could be a lot better if I had a mind like yours! Sheesh! I should get tutoring from you! Great job!
Author's Response: Wow. I\'ve never gotten such a positive review for any of my writing! Thanks! Rhyming isn\'t my cup of tea, so I\'m glad you liked the flow. In reality, I have an obsession with middle names, and I think that \'Harry James\' has a wonderful ring to it. The idea just popped into my head while I was watching Spongebob Squarepants, believe it or not. Thanks again for the great review ^.^
Oh, I lovved this! It's going on my favorites. The last line was my favorite. It's one of those lines that you say over and over to yourself in your head, and even though you already know the meaning, you still are trying to understand what it said. "She walked And then she fell." That was soo ultimately beautiful!! You've done what every poet want to do, you've got me trying to memorize the poem even! Great job!
Author's Response: Oh! What an amazing compliment! Memorizing poems is something I usually only do with really good ones, so thanks a lot! What a confidence booster.
This was ONCE AGAIN uttely amazing! I loved how you made Andromeda question why Mudbloods were inferior and I loved adorable, little Narcissa. It makes perfect sense that at one time the three Black sisters had this bond and that they loved Bella dearly, as she was their big sister and role model. Very well written and about our favorite Death Eater too!! Yay for Bellatrix!! Yay for good writing! Yay for champagne which I'm not allowed to drink!! Great job!!!
Author's Response: Hello again! Thank you so much for always reviewing. It really means a lot.
I kind of figured that Andromeda would question her familiy\'s beliefs the most from the very start, so I tried to show that. And little Narcissa was a lot of fun to write. I picture her as the cutest little girl, very very girly.
I believe that the Black sisters have always, and will always have a certain bond. Even after everything that has happened, they are still sisters. And somewhere beneath all of their pretending and roleplaying, I believe that bond is still there.
Thank you again for being a very wonderful reviewer. And I saw your special thank-you on your authors page. That was very sweet. I love your writing very much!
Ahhh! See, that's the kind of thing that makes me cry. It was beautiful as usual, and about our favorite Death Eater!!! You really like Bellatrix/Lucius don't you? Well, you have your opinions and I have mine... viva la difference. This was amazing and once again, going on my favorites!
Author's Response: Wow! I actually wondered how you would respond to this. I know that you are a huge fan of Bella/Rodolphus, and this story clearly doesn\'t support that.
Anyway, yes, I am completely obsessed with Bella/Lucius. I couldn\'t imagine writing them in love with anyone else. I just fell in love with the pairing.
So, thank you for reviewing again. And I\'m really glad that you enjoyed it, despite our different ships of choice.
Yay! lovely fic!! Totally awesome! And now, I TOTALLY HEART JAMES!!
Author's Response: Wow, thanks! I love James as well!
OOOHhh, lovely, lovely! It's going on my favorites. I'm beggining to like Andromeda more and more because of your writing, and this fic makes me wonder what would have happened if she had chosen to remain with her sisters, or if her sisters had followed her path in life. It's very interesting. Again, great job, you've written another one of my favorite!
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you liked it. I actually grow to like Andromeda more and more as I write her too. She\'s kind of a mysterious character. Thanks again for reviewing.

Chapter One - Destroyer of Pretty Girls
Oh, I loved this sooo much! I emailed you my problem and I hope you will put it as one of your later chapters, I look forward to reading your response! You are definetly a talented write, MM. I really enjoyed this and I found myself laughing out loud at some parts! Thanks for a great read!
oooh! exclellent. i liked how the story was told from the death eaters point of view. The father was making Muggles the enemy instead of the Death Eaters. Adn he tried to even justify the genocide against them. Very well written too like all your works and very, very imaginative! Bravo
Author's Response: Hey, as always, thank you for the review! I\'m glad you enjoyed. I always assumed the Death Eaters must have some justification for killing other people. Most people can\'t just kill for the fun of it.
Well, I'm here, sorry it took so long to review, I was just caght up in Sorrows More Peaceful, gettting chapter eleven in queue. I like your work on Myrtle, no one really spends too much time wondering about her, and especially not writing about her. Olive Hornby must have felt the worst, I imagine, but in this poem, it was Hagrid who did. I'd think he'd feel worse for himself, a also for Myrtle, but not as much... because, hey, he just got expelled. I think Olive would feel very very guilty. I would. Other than that, i could see nothing wrong with this. Good job!
Author's Response: thanks! (I\'ll have to check out Sorrows More Peacful, by the way- if you\'ve been putting so much time into it it must be good.) And I\'d never actually thought about Hagrid before this, but I had only olive\'s and tom\'s and I was like okay, I really need another poem in here to balance out the hatred. Who else would be affected? And hagrid just sort of hit me. Because really, he had just lost his dad recently and now he was losing everything else. I might write a one-shot about him, actually. Thanks for the review!
Oooh, bravo!! I love it! Bella's fun to write, isn't she? So is Andromeda. And you write both sisters very well. I love how you introduced the bracelet first and then revealed Bella! Nice twist! I was sure the metal object was just a metal object until you said it was connected to a hand. This is going on my favorites!!!
Author's Response: Everytime I try to respond to you the computer logs me out!
Okay, let\'s try again. I absolutly love writing Bella. It\'s funny that Sirius was my favorite character and now it has changed to her. But I just love her now!
The bracelet took me a little while to think of. I needed something that would get Andromeda\'s attention so she would find Bella. I thought of something shiny, cause I had been writing about it being a sunny day. And then the bracelet popped into my head. I tried to wait as late in the chapter as possible to announce her presence. I wanted to get as much of the back story out as possible first.
This story is my new baby. I spend countless hours on it daily. I already have the first seven chapters written. I\'m going to edit chapter seven in a few minutes. I\'m really excited about this story and your review just made my day. Thanks so much!:D:D:D
Oooh, again it hits me: Bella's blind... I know this was already established but reallly... its so sad. And I'm so glad Andy found her! What would have happened if Bellatrix had wandered out there alone? Rodolphus finding her, Aurors finding her? *Shudders* Again, lovely chapter. Your writing ability has shown perfectly. I love how you give so much personality to your characters. it feels like your there with them, not just reading about them. amazing chappie, and im off to read the rest!!!
Author's Response: *huggles Bella* I hate to say it, but Bella doesn\'t make out any better because Andromeda found her. She really isn\'t have a good time of it at all.
Anyway, thanks so much for all the lovely compliments. *huggles*
Ahhh! No no no no no no no no no no no no no no! I believe that sums it up. But really, how sad. SHE KILLED HER SISTER AND DIDN"T EVEN MEAN TO AND NOW SHE HAS TO LIVE WITH TONKS"S HATE AND SHE MIGHT BE GOING TO AZKABAN!!! NO! Sorry about the caps lock, but im feeling rather emotional about this all. Again, I loved your character portrayl. I can't believe Im saying this, but your fic makes me hate my darling Rodolphus. Damn that stupid phsyco! And its just devastating that Andromeda died! Why oh why??? But, anyways, really really really good heart-wrenching writing. Bravo. *sobs*
Author's Response: *hands tissue* Sorry, dear. I didn\'t think you would much like the end of this. What happened to Bella is unfair, and it just gets worse and worse for her.
Anyway, thanks for the review and the lovely compliments. P.S. I don\'t mind the caps lock. :D
Oh my god, how exceptionally depressing! Well, at least all three sister will sort of be united again. But what a horrible thought!. I loved how you wrote Bella's emotions. It was startling how well you can portray her. I love all the memories you came with for her as well. I love the idea of Narcissa taming a unicorn. It seems so Narcissaish. Great job, and what a wonderful fic!!!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the compliments. I personally loved the unicorn idea. It really made me think of Narcissa as well. Of the three sisters, she is most clearly the girly one.
Anyway, thanks so much for reading and I\'m you enjoyed it, even if it was depressing. :D
Firstly, I really liked the chapter title for this one. My, Ted's not very thoughtful of his sister-in-law, is he? But I guess that's understandable when you think of what she's done. I can't wait to read more, there's so much that I can sense will happen. I really want Bella to apologize to her family, and I want to see what happens. Great chapter!!
Author's Response: Chapter title, huh? I wasn\'t so sure about it. I\'m usually not. So glad you liked it.:D
Yes, Ted was a jerk to poor Bella. But Tonks was the one who slapped her. Of course, their anger is justified, but it would be kinder of them to wait til she\'s capable of standing under her own power before they rip her to shreds. But more than anything, they\'re both worried about what her presense will do to Andromeda.
Bella apologize to her family? Well, I suppose she does apologize, but I doubt it\'s what you have in mind. *grins mysteriously*
Thanks so much for the review, and I\'m glad that you\'re enjoying my story. :D
I'm sorry I don't have time to review each one of the chapters, but I would like to revie all the chapters as a whole. I'm sorry this took me so long, I've been tied up. But anyway, your vie wof Rodolphus is very different fomr mine. He's just so cruel, especially in this story. Poor Bella blind.... that's really a shame. This is a wonderful story all the same though. I love Andy and Ted is wonderful too. You have such a flair for characters. And the Muggle-born Healer was a touch of inspiration!
Author's Response: Hehe. Rodolphus. Yep, we sure think of him very differently. And if you think he\'s cruel now. There\'s more to come. I think he probably is at his nastiest in this story. At least, the nastiest that I have written him, yet.
I\'m glad you liked Elizabeth. I was trying to think of something that would really upset Bella, show that she is still the same person and her views haven\'t changed, show how helpless she is feeling, and at the same time I wanted it to be something that was meant to help her. Elizabeth was born!
Thank you so much for all of your compliments. I absolutly love your reviews.:)
