Hey...this is a nice story. It's nice enough that I'm reading it post-HBP even though this is clearly a pre-HBP story. ice to see that scene from 'Kuch naa kaho' in a R/Hr way and "Slyly" was a perfect parody of "piny" or whatever her name was in the movie.
Author's Response: Why thank you! :) I am really glad that this adaptation of the film has been taken well by the readers. I hope I will recevie some more good responses in the future from you.
Wow..I loved this one shot...because it put two random characters (who don't have anything to do with each other) in a random but exciting place and yet it managed to be enjoyable and mysterious. I especially loved the characterizations...of Blaise and Hermione and the common enemy Mclaggen. I loved he snarky comebacks from both Blaise and Hermione and Blaise's musings and remembrances. The humor wasn't cheesy but clever.
Hermione's Stunner at the end was fantastic...I wish I had been there at that moment. Love rulebreaking!Hermione.
Author's Response: Thank you for the compliment about the humor in this fic. It was my first HP fic, and I wasn\'t sure if the chance I took with the odd pairing would work.
Ha ha...the last line really had done me in..
“Oh my gosh,” Hermione gasped as she came out from the changing room, a look of recognition came over her. Ginny nodded. “It must be...temporary insanity!”
I can understand Ginny's ire here! I liked stalker!Ron esp as he was calling out to her and she probably thought she was insane. Lol. Hoping to read more.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed it! Yes - poor Ginny, attempting to talk sense into Hermione - not an easy task! I actually think that Ron\'s shoutings (and I don\'t really think he\'s too much of a stalker - or too good at it!) might have helped him with Hermione, as she\'s thinking about him - or she thinks she is, anyway! Or maybe she was already... More will come soon, thanks for reviewing!
Really good. Well...I do feel sorry for Lavender because of the situation she was in. Whatever the Ron/Lav relationship was(we all know it was just snogging) he was still her boyfriend and more annoyed at Ron after reading this story than at Hermione. Can you expect her not to smirk when the Ron/Lav break up happened? Coming back to Lav, well I felt bad for her in this love triangle but overall...she's pretty much shallow and an air-head so I don't like her character.
Author's Response: I hated Lavender in HBP but I was annoyed with Ron just like you. He should have just asked Hermione out if he wanted her so badly instead of using Lavender. Despite how much I dislike her character, I think any girl, airhead or not, deserves a guy that genuinely wants her, and not just use her as a tool to get another girl jealous.
Hey really good. It was simple and sweet without being overtly fluffy. I was expecting a Hermione/Krum pairing honestly. Esp. the eyebrow thing and the fact that she ignores him except to send him dark looks. I thought it might even be Lily/Snape or Lily/James.
What a surprise, it turned out to be Ron/Hermione...the one pairing which most people wouldn't be expecting!
Very sneaky to put it in the OC pairing list though.
Ha ha....nice parody! Oh did I mention that I absolutely *adore* Mary Sue? How Harry dump her??? How mean!
I'm missing Ron in this story though...no one for Ron...please write up some Won-won/Lav-lav too! That would be way hilarious!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I know, it\'s awful of him, isn\'t it? But she\'ll find a way to make things better pretty soon... :D Ron should be coming up soon! I\'m not sure about Lav-lav though... that was too ridiculous in the books to be effectively. :D Thanks again for the review!
Aww....this is one one shot that I like a lot. I was always a bit annoyed with JKR that Hermione's parents were ever mentioned and I always wondered how they would feel about Hermione always rushing off o the Weasleys every vacation. You have filled the gaps in wonderfully and I feel sad for Mrs.Granger. The song's lyrics were perfect..especially the last para....that was a haunting reminder of the inevitable war and Horcrux hunt.
Author's Response: Thank you! I was reading the bit of OOTP where Hermione dithes her parents for Chirstmas and listening to this song at the same time, and it suddenly all made sense ;D We just have to hope that Mres. Granger doesn\'t end up losing hr daughter...
Aww...that was so sweet. I loved Hermione...all the awkwardness and also Remus's, "I thought I had distracted you!" was funny. I absolutely loved the Hermione-Remus interaction...I wish there was some Tonks-Hermione interaction as well. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks! I really didn\'t think of Hermione talking to Tonks as well. Probably because she\'d just be all angsty and say \"go away, you don\'t know how I feel\"... and Hermione would wonder \"is this what my parents feel like?\"
2010: Ahaa, God, I just took another look at this story and, uh...the only defense I have is that I was a lot younger when I wrote it. Whew.
A nice idea...however I feel like punching Ron. He just dipped further down in my list of favorites.
I'm xurious who Hermione will hook up with(if she does at all) if not Krum. I hope Ron gets tortured almost as much as Hermione is being now. Ha ha
Author's Response: heh heh heh. that\'s all I\'m saying ;-)
Aww....love love love Hermione in this chapter!!!
'Ginny you have plants which sing love ballads'
Benji seems nice, not too bright(although that's only acc. to Hermione)...
I would like to see everyone's reaction to Muggle Ben esp Arthur..it willbe hilarious!
Oh..and then there's Ron ofcourse...want to see jealous!Ron!
Hey good take on the H/Grelationship..I'm not a hard-core H/G shipper[that would be R/Hr for me] but I do like them together. I think that Ginny is in character here but I would ave loved to see her go out and be in the battle...coz that's Ginny for you..she would hate to be left behind. The parallel with Romilda Vane was interesting.
Author's Response: People who like H/G keep reading this... that is so weird. I will occaisonally read the pairing too, but I firmly believe Harry/Luna is the better ship. Stupid teenage boy Harry in HBP... *grumbles* Anywho, if I had had Ginny go off and fight, this story wouldn\'t work because a) Harry and Ginny would get back togrther in about 5 minutes and b) Romilda wouldn\'t be there. So Mrs. Weasley made Ginny stay home (she\'s still sixteen) and that\'s part of the reason she\'s so angsty. Thank you for the review!
Oh wow....this is so intriguing! I'm hooked from this chapter itself..please update sooner.
I wonder who the figure on the ground is.
Author's Response: Hey! I\'m glad you enjoyed the first little taste of my story... hehehe... will I ever reveal who the figure on the ground is? We will see... :p Haha, I love creating tension. Anyway, thanks for reviewing! I\'m glad you liked it! <3
Hey nice chapter. I liked the Harry-Hermione interaction in this chapter. I like the focus on their relationship. However I am missing Ron in this too. Even though you might not include him in this story in person, I would love to have a mention of him as the fic will be unrealistic without that.
Author's Response: I totally agree, about Ron not being there. Up to a few days ago, I had thought that I would work in an explanation in later chapters, but it really made more sense to explain things earlier in the story, so I edited \"Misunderstandings\" - the second chapter - with an explanation. Please, tell me how you like it!
Once again you amaze me with your Mystic!Hermione. I loved the descripton of the dream as well as the whole mysterious tone of the story. I liked the part about Ravenclaw's wand and I'm curious about the two Hermiones.
Great job...do continue soon!
Author's Response: Mystic!Hermione... perhaps I should start a new genre - I\'m enjoying her, too! :D And I\'m working hard on the next chapter, so don\'t worry! <3 Thanks again for reviewing!
