You are a RAVENCLAW!
Hogwarts Sorting Hat: Based on Myers-Briggs Personality Typing
brought to you by Quizilla
Just found your story and read the whole thing at once. Great job--you are quite talented! My heart stopped when Malfoy stepped in just now. Please finish the next one so it can start beating again! (I know you have to wait for approval...)
I just happened on this and think it is brilliant. I love the way you have Snape playing the double agent, even at such an early stage in the game. I am constantly wondering when he got in and out of it. Very good.
Really hilarious. I echo the other sentiment--a match made in hell. Quite different, I like that you did it from a house elf perspective.
Oh dear, I submitted the review for this most recent chapter under the previous chapter--forgive me, hope you're not too confused!
I agree with MoonyPadfootProngs. Keep 'em long. I like the way you shifted between times/eras. It is consistent with the diary theme--it's not random at all.
Author's Response: Oh, you all are the sweetest souls =). I'm too flattered, yes, I'm more partial to the longer chaps myself. But I feel rather wearied now, I mean... I sit there and Sirius tells me what to write and then when I finish and feel like I've just accomplished the world, all he does is gives me a little pat on the head... grr, guys are so exasperating. Heck, maybe he's slow to show his affection with me, tee hee hee.
This is so great, my heart is pounding! I am dying to read more. I can't quite tell if Remus got to her before Sirius knocked him out--was the blood "at his feet" Elise's or Remus' (from Padfoot's attack)?? Don't know how strictly you stick to canon, supposedly he never bit anyone. Not that I care, I like it to go off in other directions! Just trying to figure it out!! Well done, my dear, update soon, so my heart can slow down!! Love your Sirius, especially his hair!!
Author's Response: So nice to hear from a superior, hee hee, ever so nice =).
I just love the way you write young Mr. Black. I thought it was brilliant the way you described his internal conflict about his attraction to Elise and how to act on it, then his reality call and the spell he cast on her. It was in line with how I see him, sort of dark, and good to look back on his family. Very clever spell, even though it wasn't very kind. Clever too, to work yourself in! And no more calling me a superior--it makes me feel old, besides you show more talent in your content and style than I could ever hope to!
Great chapter--II love it that Peter figured out how to get in the other dorm and almost died!! Little rat! I too adore the lightening bolt thing, glad to see Lily is coming around. Also love to see that Sirius is getting a dose of reality--he is my fave, next to Snape (ala EllieK/Orlaith). Good to see they both are attracted to strong, stubborn women. Still love the diary concept!
Great story, just read all 10 posted thus far. Love the longer chapters you tend to write. You are very talented for one so young! Am looking forward to more. I hope all three get to have a chance at romance, though your take on James & Lily is very good. Like it that Moony gets to have fun too!
Author's Response: Ooh, so nice to have a superior read my work... thanx *giggles*.
Loz--that was hilarious! You write a humor fic very well and to see poor old Mundungus pull one over on Severus was really great! You should write another for the Snape's retaliation!
Great job--the characters are right on, and I like how Harry is a little morose and dark. Fits very well with where I think he would be after the OofP. Such great work. Keep writing, I look forward to more!
Great update. Love the story so far. I have so much sympathy for Snape, seems like other do as well. Excellent job!
I love the way you portrayed Remus' turning--it was painful and just what I would imagine, especially his dread and reluctance of it. And I too, was relieved that Isabelle noticed the full moon. Excellent chapter. Best new word (for me): transmogrify (had to look it up).
Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review, as per usual! I giggled at your \'best new word\' quip.
Again, your reviews are so very appreciated! I don\'t know how many times I can say that without it sounding redundant.
The thing I like about your Remus is that he is not the perfect guy. Too often, he is portrayed as overly gentlemanly, calm, and chaste. But the way you write him, he feels real and imperfect. More like a (grown-up) Marauder should be. He is a convincing werewolf in your story: aggressive, murderous, and untamable. Note that I am not justifying bashing about your date, but it was what one might expect! The gruesomeness of the “morning after” was particularly good, the blood and gashes. I take it her brother was/is afflicted too? That would explain her knowledge about the Curse. I wasn’t quite sure why she was fingering his cuts—at first I thought she might be trying to heal them. I guess it was morbid curiosity on her part. She is a little shaky right now. It was quite telling that Isabella went straight to his house after taking care of herself following the World Cup disaster. I am glad they finally hooked up! Best new word: coruscating. I hope your schedule allows you to update soon!
Author's Response: Patryk is a whole 'nother story all together. We'll be learning more about him. And Isabelle's morbid curiosity was, I guess you could say, a sample of her lack of common sense.
Hmm... My schedule is interesting over these next couple weeks. I have college registration, advanced placement testing, prom, and graduation in the next couple weeks. Though, I can say that I will be with chapter nine much quicker than eight. I'll be updating (I hope) once a week (or every other week) when summer vacation rolls around, though.
I think you capture the lonely feeling I always assume Remus has because of his curse, like being a bar, just wanting some company. I wonder if Isabelle will help him out, being an alchemist and such?
Author's Response: Hmm, will she? Isabelle might help him out of some things, but others remain more permanent and there\'s little she can do.
Thanks for taking the time to review! It\'s very much appreciated!
Love the title of the chapter. I like how your Remus is darker and not quite so "prefect" as some others'. Sleeplessness can be torturous for some, but can inspire and ignite others, I think the latter applies to your characters. Am wondering about the references to an iceberg and the drinking water like an alcoholic....
Author's Response: I was skeptical of the title at first, I do admit, but I\'m happy that I stuck with it, ultimately. I\'m glad that Remus does come off as darker, because he\'s always been like that in my mind and I hoped that he would come off as so in my writing. Not that he\'s an angsty character, of course, but he has his troubles.
Thanks for the lovely review!
Great chapter--I like it that he unnerved her slightly.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review!
Again, I like the insight into Remus--imagining what it would be like to hunt for a job when one is a werewolf, very cool. Very neat way to end the chapter too, with his shocked realization!
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! I\'m glad you enjoyed it.
He is a Marauder--of course he is flirtatious! She is a very interesting character, indeed.
Author's Response: You\'re just on a roll! Thank you for taking the time to review! It\'s so very much appreciated!
I am dying to know who that man in the photo was. I am thinking maybe she has a relative afflicted with the curse, or old friend... Richard is a fluffy little playmate for sure, and I am so glad she asked Remus to the games, but my, it seemed hard for her to do. Is she just with Richard for physical reasons, or because it is easy, or because she is scared to look for something deeper? Is that why she is "unchained"? And how did she get into his kitchen? Are they doing something you aren't letting onto? Delightful chapter.
Author's Response: You will find out soon enough, hun! As for Richard, their relationship looks simple and easy, but it\'s complicated in some ways. There are many reasons as to what makes her unchained when she\'s without him and I hope that my writing helps you see how in later chapters.
Thank you for your kind words and wonderful review!
