Clever. You have a definite flair for writing humor. If you write this well at 13, I think it is safe to say that we can be expecting great things from you.

Author's Response: This is actually the first time someone has actually constructively complimented me... *rushes off to get the review framed*


Of Rats and Drainpipes by Loki MM
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 16]

Summary: It all started when the Slytherin Quidditch captain threw a curse at Peter, who transformed and hid. In the sink of the third-floor boys bathroom. And got stuck. It's up to the other three Marauders to get him out. COMPLETE

A wormtail story: the forgotten Marauder. A very well-developed and well-written one shot featuring an overlooked character. Nicely done.

Author's Response: Yes! Peter was a Marauder! He does need to stop getting looked over. Thanks for the flattering review (and the correction email), btw. Cheers!

I'm glad to see this posted here. Adults need something to read, too. This site could do with some more Snape stories. I like your poetry and your OC, Ellie. Keep posting!

Author's Response: Why thank you so much, Vocalion! I am glad that there are other Snape lovers out there. JKR is magnificent and I do so enjoy playing with her toys. Thank you for taking the time to read and review my first fanfiction story. I do hope you will stay tuned!

Cheers, EllieK


Who's Messing With My Head? by Mellowdrama
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 24]

Summary: Something's eating at Harry on Privet Drive. Dudley seems to have achieved the impossible, while our insecure teenage hero begins having the weirdest dreams about two girls he only thinks of as friends... or does he? A zany satire of shipping with a little fluff mixed in.

It seems as though Harry will have his work cut out for him trying to understand the complications of the adolescent female mind. "Uncle Vernon grinned like a complacent rhinoceros" -- nice simile. It creates a very visual image.

Author's Response: I think the grinning rhinoceros came from either Disney's Robin Hood animated film or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... I'm not sure which.

Reviewer: Vocalion Signed
Date: 11/21/04 Title: Chapter 1: The Bathroom

An interesting, well-written beginning. Dudley becoming a ladies' man: frightening. I like the way you picked up the story right where Book 5 stopped. Will the reason for Harry's unusual dream be explained, or did he inhale too much of Dudley's foul cologne and become woozy?

Author's Response: Perhaps I've been a little too subtle in Chapter 1, but there definitely IS a reason for what's going on in Harry's head. Thanks for reading!

Introductory chapters can sometimes be slow. Don't worry about it. You've set the groundwork for an interesting story. I'll review the rest as soon as I get the chance. Don't let your marauders be too mean to Snivellus -- he's my special boy! Thanks for reviewing my story. (The last chapter is posted now, which is actually the funny one.)

Author's Response: Thank you ever so much for posting, don't worry, old Snivelly gets off a bit litley...well, just a bit ;)

I don't mind Sibyll or Bertha being in their year. Speculation in fan fiction is allowed and doesn't detract from the story. Very enjoyable.

I liked this chapter. It was lighthearted and amusing. The character of Professor Duhalmie was well-written, and a nice addition.

I'm a sucker for light verse. It is fast becoming a lost art. It was creative, humorous, and it scanned. Very nice job.


Summary: The final battle against the Dark Lord has come. Harry is just about to take revenge on Peter Pettigrew, when suddenly Dumbledore reminds him of the big plan - the magnificent plan! ::all Harry Potter conspiracy theories ever compromised in one hilarious story!::

I'm delighted to find this posted here. You write a drunken Harry quite convincingly. I hope that Squidbait will soon be following. Welcome, Grainne!

Author's Response: Thank you, Vocalion! (and we'll see about the latter). You make me wonder, though, can anyone truly be in character when they are "rat-arsed"? Hmmm....


Squidbait Returns by Grainne
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 226]

Summary: This is the tale of what happens when a war-weary Auror returns to Hogwarts only to find that one last battle the form of Potions master Severus Snape. A romance with healthy doses of humor, angst, and Quidditch!

Author's Response: And you are the very gracious Queen of Reviewers. Thank you!

Well done! The star rating for this is too low. It is deserving of a higher rating, so I hope this review will help a bit. Your rhymes were tight, and I can tell that you put a great deal of time and thought into this. There were some places in which the meter was off, but that would be quite easy to correct. Overall, it scans quite well.

Reviewer: Vocalion Signed
Date: 01/15/05 Title: Chapter 1: The Prophecy Complete

I have returned because your star rating is still not high enough. Here is one suggestion I will make for your summary: Change "A poetry version of one of the possible outcomes of the Final Battle" to "A poetic interpretation of one possible outcome of the Final Battle".

Author's Response: Thanks for the suggestions. I think some of the rhymes seem off because when I say it myself I know what needs to be squished or expanded for it to flow. That doesn't work so much over the internet. Lol. Your summary does sound better; the other one was sort of an 'Oh crap, I have to put in a summary, don't I?'

The opening premise you have established is interesting. Perhaps you could have explained more specifically the type of danger facing Snape if he remains at Hogwarts. You're off to a good start. Did you intend for the initials of your OC to be the acronym SAP? In a comedy, I wouldn't question this, but in a romance, the name seems to stick out and draw attention to itself. I can tell you have good ideas, but this needs to be beta-read. If you would like to e-mail me, I would be happy to give you some suggestions to help you polish your story.

Author's Response: I'm very new at this... If you'd like to be my beta that would be helpful... The name is important. Each part choosen for a reason. Selene means moon (different from the sun or normal things, mysterious), Agalia is another name for Aphrodite, Prudence means wisdom. As for Severus the war has ended and he is a spy.. many death eaters blame him for the downfall. Should I include a flashback to the end of the war in the first chapter?...I know it's painfully short. Thank you for the review... first one I've had... thanks for the help!

Just passing through to welcome you to Mugglenet! This is one of my favorite young Snape stories. All of your work reads like canon. Better, actually, as it delves into the psychological motivations behind the choices Snape has made. Thank you for filling in all those delicious missing moments from Snape's past, which is what JK should be doing instead of focusing on Harry.

Author's Response: I'm in two minds about what JKR should and shouldn't do with Snape's story ... One reason why you won't find me writing about Harry is because she tells us *too much* about him, which leaves no space for my imagination... So the only thing I'd ask of JKR as that she keeps teasing us with Snape fragments, and leave us fanficcers to do the rest ;-). Thanks, Vocalion! -S.


Summary: Near the end of sixth year, an overdue confrontation between Pansy Parkinson and Draco Malfoy leads to an emotionally charged evening, that neither will forget. This story depicts a missing scene from HBP and includes a humorous cameo of our favourite Potions Master. (Complete - 3 Chapters)

Testing...testing...hope this goes through. You certainly put your heart and soul into this and it shows. When you're passionate about the project, it makes all the difference. Very nice work! I'll review here, as the likelihood of my registering at Frilly Pink Robes or Pureblood is extremely low. :-D

Author's Response: Oh, come on, Vocalion! You know you want to register there! Not everything is at Occlumency! Not every great lover is a greasy haired, big nosed git! LOL! (Oops, I meant to say Slytherin Potions God.) You're right, I am passionate about this trilogy and, as you know, I've spent countless hours working on it. Part II will have four chapters, and the first three are almost ready to post. Thanks for reading and reviewing, my friend!
