I am fun. I am loving. I am me.
(P.S. Writing is my life!)
Remember, my name is all lowercase :D. I knew this one should make it, it was really funny and it was something Hermione would never do, but really would do. I see you didn't use the last little paragraph ;). That's fine. Great chapter, don't know if you plan on continueing it, but I'll be glad to do the others if you want.
Author's Response: Hi ginnypotter19! Thank-you. Yes, I wanted to remain as true to my original words as possible and just fix the grammatical and spelling errors, so I left out the bit you wrote up and I\'m sure that\'s why I capitalized your name as a \"proper noun.\" I\'ll change it to all lower case for you now =) I think it\'s kind of funny so many people point out that Hermione would never do this, and yet I never read such a comment on one of the S/H fics ... now which is more likely, really? Hermione loosing it in class, or having a fling with the potions master? *grin*
This story is by far THE BEST one-shot I have ever read. Possibly even the best story, too.
Why it is the best one-shot, however, is because all in one chapter you caught the comedy in the story, keeping Fred and George very alive (figuratively speaking of course) by keeping their characters very true and believable. You also made it very sad by letting us see what Fred had to endure watching over the years of his life and not growing up, making us realize what was really a result of Fred's death. I for one have finally been able to cope with his death now that this story has been posted.
I cried so much during this story *which I blame you for my swollen eye now ;) j.k j.k) and laughed at the same time. I love Fred to peices, though that may be George's job... Anyway, you captured the characters, the story, and even the characters you simply made up beautifully!
You totally and completely deserve any awards this story may ever recieve and in any contest it is ever entered in!
Author's Response: Oh my gosh! Thank you so, very, very miuch! I\'m really glad you liked the characterization because I was nervous about tackling such awesome characters as Fred and George. And I was very touched that you said this story helped you cope with Fred\'s death.... I wrote it to help me cope.
I did enter this story in a contest, but unfortunately it didn\'t win or place. Ah well! You can always nominate it for next year\'s Quicksilver Quills, wink-wink! ^_^
Just so you know it has been well over a year, almost two, since I last left a review, I'm sure anyway. And I still have not forgotten about this story(:. When I get in a truly weird moment where I want to read some fanfiction, this is the first story I come to, and the first story I'll suggest to the nearest Harry Potter fan next to me to read. It's still truly my favorite story! (:
Author's Response: Oh my gosh, thank you so much! I really don't read fanfiction or ever write much of it anymore, but I think this is my favorite story I've done. This really means a lot to me.
Wow, that was a very interesting read! I have always loved the story of Peter Pettigrew and have even tried writing a few stories about him myself, but I love how you have his life secrets in one 'man-journal' entry. I loved the end when he goes 'screw this. Tomorrow, Man-Journal, you're going in the fire'. That sounds so much like him! Throughout his whole life with the marauders you'd think that the way he is explained and treated he must have just said screw it a long time ago because of how much of an outcast he made himself.
I loved the little comment you made about his mother. She must have been drinking when she bought him the journal. It is sort of like a background check that we have also learned about his mother, and not just Peter and his secrets. So I'm presuming that she likes to drink? lol.
Other than that I really loved it and I'm off to read more of your stories!
Congratulations on getting it published! I knew it was a good story, and now everyone else can see, too :)
Author's Response: Thank you for my first ever reviewe. :D
