All I want to say here is: Go buy my book, Just as True, on lulu.com. http://stores.lulu.com/store.php?fAcctID=57067257
Oh, God, you're funny! I especially liked James resisting the urge to cuddle the squirrel.
Please keep this going.
Author's Response: I agree! God is certainly funny. Maybe Bailey and I got a little humor from Him? More chapters are to come.
WTF? I think I missed something.
Author's Response: It's possible. Snape told Sirius to sing to McGonagall or else he would reveal Sirius' secret. Sirius comes up with the idea of fooling Snape into believing he isn't afraid of squirrels (and then could not be blackmailed). Snape doesn't believe it. So, Sirius still has to sing to McGonagall.
Excellent! Not only a reasonable and well-thought-out betrayal, but a decent explanation for the fear of squirrels to be reasonable. Keep going!
Author's Response: Thank you! It mean a lot when a reader approves. :) I hope you enjoy the last chapter.
Hmm... I agree with Snape about the grammatical errors, but wouldn't it be easier for him to use this knowledge for black-mail purposes? (No pun intended.)
Author's Response: Snape gets his fair share of blackmail opportunity later on. Thanks for your suggestion!
Hmm... not quite as good as ones past (though still excellent!) I did like Sirius trying to explain untrue blackmail. It made no sense.
Author's Response: :) In my opinion, Sirius was crazy before he ever went to Azkaban. (But that's just me.) Thank you for reviewing!
Wow... that was very unproductive, wasn't it?
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! Yes, the Marauders are a bit slow at getting things done, but as the urgency to find a solution picks up, they will work harder to save Sirius from complete humiliation.
That was fascinating. I hope the next one is less embarrassing... but of course it won't be.
Author's Response: No, Sirius will never see mercy... at least not yet. Thanks for reading. :)
Hmm... interesting story. I'm not sure protagonist is the right word... anti-hero might be more appropriate. The last line was amusing.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! The use of the word 'protagonist' was intended actually. XD
Wow... powerful story. I haven't read the other two, but this one easily stands alone. My only criticism is that this made me more depressed than your last e-mail.
Author's Response: I guess I should have put a tearjerker warning on it. If you read the other two, each stands alone, but to go in order, read Love Beyond Forever first. Thank you for your review. Terri
Interesting concept. I've worked with similar themes before, but never to this extreme. I like the way you used Peter's viewpoint for the second chapter, since he's one of the characters we hear the least from. Keep it coming!
An excellent satire on Americans trying to sound British! All too often I notice misused words and phrases throughout stories, and this story was rather amusing. Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you :)
Excellent analysis of our Peter, and of Sirius and Remus. I love it when Moony's such a stick-in-the-mud!
Ah, how we act around different people. I think this is one of the best stories I've read all week!
LOVE IT! Your characterization of both Dumbledore and Lockhart was spot on! Of course Dumbledore would ask about the robes.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Lockhart has quickly become one of my favorites, if only for his incredible ineptness.
It's sweet, with just the right mixture of mystery and anxiety, joy and worry. I love the ending.
I enjoyed this story immensely, particularly the way Sirius told the story to Remus. It was just like a conversation in the way they both spoke and how random it got.
Author's Response: I teach kindergarten, so I have a lot of these kinds of 'backwards' conversations trying to figure out who has done what to whom. (Is it a bad thing that I'm comparing Sirius to a kindergartner?) Thanks for reading and letting me know you liked this!
I love this story. How has it gotten no reviews? I think you portrayed Percy's regret and guilt excellently. You make him seem human and less of a prat than we see in the books. Great job! Don't stop writing!
PoA era: Severus Snape takes a thoughtful stroll down Diagon Alley at the start of the Christmas holidays, but it soon turns into a quite a harrowing ordeal for our favourite Potions Master... UK English. Contains some dark humour. You have been warned!
Characters: Severus Snape, Fred Weasley, George Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Molly Weasley, Percy Weasley and (very) minor OC's.
Trust me, your Snape is perfect. I love how you got every angle of his personality into the story. My only issue is that Snape didn't know that James and Sirius were Animagi at Christmas of PoA. Although the references were funny, I do not believe they fit in canon. Other than that, it was perfect.
Oops. Technical slip on my part that I really should have caught. That'll irritate me forever now. Oh, well. Can't change it now without stuffing up a good part of the story (unless I pretend he learned about it somehow from Dumbledore in the course of their quirky friendship).
Still, I'm delighted that apart from that wee error, you enjoyed it as a whole. Portraying Snape was tricky, but still quite a lot of fun - especially when I wrote the scene with the Weasley's.
Thanks for R & R-ing, m'dear,
Kara's Aunty ;)
One formidable Longbottom grandmother and two mischievous Weasley twins teach Rita Skeeter a very public lesson...
UK English, canon ish , humour.
YES! It's about time that Rita got her due! I love all your stories, please keep writing them!
Rita is a ghastly b/witch, isn't she? And who better to deliver her come-uppance than Augusta, Fred and George!
I'm very happy you like all the fics so far. When I started writing, it was mainly more serious fics and I never thought I could pull off humour, but (fortunately), it doesn't seem to be going down too bad. No worries, I'll keep writing - it's so much fun!
Thanks for R & R-ing,
Good twist at the end... I also want tickets to hear Voldy sing "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." This is probably one of the funniest stories I've read this year.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked the chapter. I have been inexcusably late on this story, but I do intend to continue it. Thanks for revewing!
