That was quite fun to read.
Even thought I must admit I never read anything of Mrs. Meyer...
I liked seeing the Marauders misbehaving like in the old days once again.
Sirius' ending statement was very amusing!!
Author's Response: Thank you. It was fun to write as I can't often get away with total cliches in normal fics. Sirius is such a player. Carole xxx
WOW!! Pretty cool and interesting. She unleashed the seven capital sins on Hogwarts!! Hope everything keeps as interesting as it started!!! Awesome!!
Pride, uh? That's what's gotten into dear old Potter?
I smell Greed creeping up Ron... or maybe Glutonry? Lust reaching our darling Ginny or may be Cho? Avaritiousness... perhaps the twins? And do we get to see more of Ebony? Did she come clean and say what happened? Maybe the sollution is in the mystery Latin booklet!! Soooo curious!!!
Teddy called Aunt Muriel a nasty old cow. Rose sees her as a carrion crow.
I will!! Lovely poem! It's very much in character with Murriel!! Kuddos!
Author's Response: Thank you! Rose is feeling a little bitter about Muriel, but even when you're down, black humor surfaces. :)
I'm hoping this one will get you warm and fuzzy!!
That one shot was bloody lovely!!! I literally addored it!! And the overall idea of Astoria and Herms becoming friends and having playdates from Scorpious and Rose on the sly!!! Hehehe!!
Ron would have a cow... Draco might have a complete ranch!!
I do hope things became easier for dear old Herms later... Poor girl!
Author's Response: Ron would have a cow... Draco might have a complete ranch!! LOL. That has to be the best comment I've read all year (okay, I know it's only May but still funny.) Thank you for the review; it's definately made me giggle.
Alright... I still intend to see where this is going, but I must say, I did not think the way you portrayed Prof. Sprout was too keen. The dirt was Ok, but I suspect she'd be more on queue as to how a muggle would dress up, either that or Hogwarts would just send in a muggle-born teacher in order to be able to understand the situation more clearly. I imagine Hagrid was sent in Harry's case because of all the protection around the 'Chosen One'.
I also feel you cut the chap a bit abruptly... I suspect Dandelion would have quite a bit of questions for Granpa Dudley then and he would have to explain a lot of things he doesn't know about or understand.... She's 11, she's naturally curious!!
I'm left with a million questions unsanswered myself!! I want to learn more, much more about her and her reaction to this!! Its a big thing being told you're a witch!! Keep the good work!!
Author's Response: I wasn't too sure of my characterization of Sprout, either, but my beta thought she was okay. I was more concerned with Sprout's behavior and speech, though - I was afraid that she came across too much like McGonagall. As for the clothes, it seems like almost every (non-Muggle-born) witch and wizard seems to have trouble with Muggle dress. For example, at the Quidditch World Cup, what stood out about Barty Crouch Sr. was the fact that he actually managed to look like a Muggle businessman, which indicates that he pulled off quite the feat for someone in the magical community. Still, I guess we each come away from the HP books with our own impressions. You may very well be correct in criticizing my description of Sprout's style of dress. Don't worry. Dandelion's frustration about being kept in the dark somewhat will come out over the next couple of chapters.
I think it's a fairly interesting plot so far. I suppose Dandelion wil grow into a lovable character.. I'm intrigued about Ella, it'd be interesting to find out more about her life and how she grew up!!
Please, update soon! ;)
Author's Response: I'm glad you're enjoying the story. I'm planning on submitting Chapter 1 to the queue today. Unfortunately, there isn't much about Ella until Chapter 2. Hang in there!
No idea of what yo uasked for... but I'm highly interested in how on Earth you are planing to pair up a post-CoS Ginny with Tom Riddle. Especially after witnessing him murdering Harry Love-of-her-life Potter!! This should be fun!!! *grins*
I like your writing stile and the fact you've chosen to tell the story from Gin's PoV, in the first person.
Keep it up!!
Wait... I don't get it... Albus died???
Why is James taking to his son in the past tense???
Author's Response: I guess the last drabble wasn't very clear, alas. Yes, James is talking to his son about Uncle Albus in the past tense, which means he is no longer around. It's something I'm working on in another story that creeped into this one. We fanfic writers like to think we are all clever sometimes by linkiing up our stories, lol. Thanks for reading, I hope that makes it more clear! ~Gina :)
MMm... I realise my review was a bit short, and un-review-ish.
Allow me to start by stating the obvious, I lked the story. I found it rather enjoyable and interesting. I really liked the little warm pieces of everyday life you portrayed in it.
I found the pre-Quidditch squirmish between brothers particularly enjoyable - specially how you made James much like his grandfather and how most of the Potter-Weasley clan cheered for Albus even if he was not in Gryffindor!
My curiosity was peaked by the females on Al's litle friend group, since the accent is put in Al and Marcus... Quite a surprise, btw. I must have overlooked the warnings, oopsie. But I think it was very well-handled, sweet and subtle.
Oh! And I'm as sure as hell puzzled as to why and how Albus died!!
Author's Response: Thank you for the second review! I really appreciate your comments. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for the compliment on Albus and Marcum - I'm still unsure about that scene and appreciate knowing someone found it sweet and subtle. As for the end - again, it's something else I'm working on so it might be a little while before you have your answers, sorry. But thanks again for reading this story and leaving a review!! ~Gina :)
Da da da dum, snap! snap!
A poem inspired by the Addams Family theme song.
Oh!! Oh!! Just remembered! We HAVE to know what transpired between Rose and Scorps' parents during his tete-a-tete with his grandpa!!
Quite funny. Liked the song. Hey!!! It should go on the Meremuggles script!! How can I nominate it for that!!??
I'll have to figure out how to weave that into the next chapter. ;)
I don't know. Is there a thread in the Beta forums? Thank you for wanting to nominate it!
Hey!! GREAT one shot!!
I was just as readable and enjoyable and cannon compilant that you might have snuck it out of JKR's scrapbook!! You didn't, did you??
Abs lovely! Hehehe... Lily was rambling for a bit there, totally exhasperated by the situation. I REALLY liked it!! Awesome piece of work.
Author's Response: No, I did not steal it out of JKR's scrapbook...but I'm flattered that you would suggest it. :P (If I had access to JKR's scrapbook I think I would die of awesome. Just think how much info...-drools-).
Awh!!! It was such a bittersweet tale!! I'm so sorry for Audrey!!
I liked it very much and I hope you keep posting one shots like this!!!!!!!! Kuddos for a really cool chap!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I was interested in Audrey as soon as JKR revealed who Percy married... I wondered who in their right mind would fall in love with him, and this just seemed to fit! :)
Loved it!! The kids, you portrayed their misbehaving soo sweetly!!
I addored it!!!!! I expect you'll be posting something about James, maybe how he was bored out of his head during said ceremony???
Great story!! I thought you had a really good idea, having them seeing Wicked. And Ron loosing the bet and all was very enjoyable!! Did they go see Nemo??
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Yes I will be writing about James at some point though I haven't written it yet. They did see Nemo... I thought Dominique would enjoy that especially since the fish are almost as clueless about muggles as wizards are, so the kids could definetely sympathize.
Plan A: Convince Father to respect Scorpius' decisions.
Plan B: Risk scrambling Lucius' brain with a Memory Charm.
I am ubber thrilled of the way you portray Astoria like Draco's support. The suggestion Draco needed a shot of firewhiskey before thinking of facing the Weasley is soo funny!!
Like OLS, I love your fics!!!
Keep the awesome work!!!
You're a gem!!
In the books with Pansy stroking his hair and ego, :D, and Myrtle oozing sympathy, his mum sending packets of sweets, Draco's shown to be a man who needs feminine love and support, so I'm glad he has Astoria to lend him the right kind of strength and not be a true Lady Macbeth! :)
Thank you for being so sweet!
hehehe... kind of farfetched... I mean Draco was scheeming Dumbledore's death by then. Don't fancy him accepting Hermione's invitation to dinner. But it was a pleasant lovely read nevertheless.
It put a smile on my face the ending with them bickering like children that don't accept they are infatuated with each other. Addorable!!
Author's Response: I suppose you're right. But, in my defense, trying to kill Dumbledore is hard work. Draco could use a little distraction every now and then, hmm? =P I'm glad you liked the fic though. Thank you for reviewing!
Luna Potter is definetily something you have to explain... I mean, give some explanation on how a Mr. Potter got over Ginny. I remember the warning about how you changed ships around to fit your liking... and of course, Ginny wouldn't have been plotting with Narcissa to fix Draco with her brother's girlfriend... but, it doesn't feel right to have Harry and Luna without an explanation... at least as sentence on how Ginny married her Quidditch trainer...
Aside from that...I liked it very much!
How Draco (quite wisely) assumes Aurors are plain dumb, and Narcissa's change of heart, as well as Lucius stubbornness... and Hermione plotting for payback... I like where this is going very much!!! Great work!
Author's Response: I understand your impatience for answers, but I'm not going to just explain everything right up front; that's not how I write. Various bits and pieces of Harry and Luna's history, including what happened with Ginny, will be filled in as the story progresses. Ginny hasn't just disappeared and will actually show up around chapter 5. Just be patient and you'll get the answers you want. And, until then, pressuring me for answers won't get them any sooner. I write at my own pace to keep true to my vision for the plot. I'm glad you're enjoying the rest of it. Draco's opinion of Aurors was very much my opinion of them from the books -- that there were only a couple of smart ones. I thought that out of all of the Malfoys, Narcissa would be the easiest to change her views of Muggles and Lucius the most difficult (plus, he's not yet had his Muggle year). I hope you continue reading and remember, with patience, you will get the answer to the Luna-Harry-Ginny thing.
