I alphabatize my socks... you could probably deduce the nature of my entire life from that statement... but here you go anyway.
(...Since finishing HBP I feel the need to vent - excessively. Ok, so here it goes...
1. Everybody seemed OOC (Dumbledore especially)
2. JKR seems to have gotten every bit of everything from CoS (my least favorite of the HP series)
3. Nothing was subtle.
4. It was a time warp, and if I'm not mistaken, they skipped Halloween. (As we all know, there is usually some sort of drastic plot event on Halloween, then we enter a time warp again, and go to the Christmas Holidays)
5. All the analyzing that us H/Hr shippers has been totally disregarded, along with the fact that Ginny gave up on Harry. (I'm still comparing HPB books together to make sure mine's not different from everybody elses)
6. Hermione has shown absolutely no affection for Ron, why is she starting now?
7. The writing style is completely different. (I've heard it was co-written)
8. All the information was handed to us on a silver platter. We did not have to figure anything out for ourselves.
9. There was a shift in the characters social lives. They go from being unsure of the opposite gender, to snogging in public.
10. About a gajillion and three new characters were introduced at once. There was no background information provided after.
11. Background characters were suddenly part of the plot, there were no subtle hints, or anything that suggested that they were involved at all until Dumbledore *sniff* realized it.
12. The trio did not seem united. Ron was snogging Lavender half the time. Hermione was trying to get Ron to notice her (very un-Hermione-ish in my opinion) and Harry spent most of his time with Dumbledore. What happened to the wonder trio? They didnt have to solve anything together, they were handed information by the very OOC Dumbledore...
... I just have to say this: (and I know I'll sound like some know-it-all, but I dont care at this point!) I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH SNAPE!!! I KNEW HE WAS REALLY EVIL!!! I WAS NOT SHOCKED AT ALL WHEN HE STARTED WORKING FOR MOLDY-WART AND HIS STUPID CRONIES!!! I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT!!!
... Ok, I'm done with that... sorry...
... How 'bout the things I like about HBP? Ok, here it goes, not sure you care, but anyway...
2. T (Troll)
3. Lupin and Tonks... it was so cute...
4. Fleur wasn't a Phlegm ball after all...
5. Sarcastic Harry "There's no need to call me sir, Professor." I almost died reading that...)
IM A DEVOTED/DELUSIONAL H/Hr SHIPPER, AND IT IS NOWHERE IN MY FUTURE PLANS TO RELINQUISH THAT HONORABLE TITLE. so there...
...My favorite Book(s) are PoA or GoF or OotP. My favorite movie (which I watch every weekend at least once) is the PoA movie.
... According to 'Which ****** are you?' I am most suited for Fred/George Weasley. I am most like Harry Potter. I'm Mrs. Fred Weasly, or Mrs. Sirius Black... disturbing, huh?
...Cool phrases I find amusing:
-On the other hand, I have different fingers.
-Radioactive cats have 18 half-lives
-Some people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them.
-The Schizophrenic: An unauthorized autobiography
-If God had intended man to smoke, he would have set them on fire.
-Gravity is a myth, the Earth sucks.
-I believe in getting in hot water, it keeps me clean.
-Few women admit their age, few men act it.
-I dont suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
-I almost had a psychic boyfriend, but he left me before we met.
-What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
-Hookt on Fonix werkd four mee!
-You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.
-Remember, you're unique, just like everybody else.
-All generalizations are false.
-I took an IQ test, and the results came out negative...
-I used to have an open mind, but my brains kept falling out.
-Dont let your mind wander, its much to small to be out alone!...
...I AM A PROUD MEMBER OF THE VIRGIN LIPS CLUB... I have not swapped saliva with anybody in my life (wull except that one time that my cousin kissed me, but we were four, and i was asleep at the time, so it doesnt really count)... And I have absolutely no intention of doing so in the near future... nor tonsil hockey...
That was sad... but it was interesting to see it from both sides. Is it another pov in the third chapter, or going on?
funny funny stuff... to bad they didnt like Ron during "Naked Time" that would have been hilarious. I love potter puppet pals almost as much as fanfiction. Keep writing !!!
I loved this chapter. I cant wait to see what you do with this story. I hope that the rest of the chapters will be out soon!
Author's Response: Thank You!!!
Oh that was a wonderful story! You are a wonderful writer, and i love your story. thank you so much for keeping it clean (if you know what i mean) sometimes authors ruin good stories with uneccesary stuff. i love your story and look forward to futute chapters!
Author's Response: Thanks! I can assure you this much that I absolutely won't ruin it with *useless* stuff. Keep reading and reviewing. ;)
“That arrogant…arrogant…ARG! That toerag is Head Boy! HEAD BOY! How did he make HEAD BOY! What is Dumbledore on? I mean, he struts around, pranking, pranking, PRANKING, and then Dumbledore says, ‘Gee, this kid really is an irresponsible bad influence, prankster, and all around jerk. Yes! He’d make a fine Head Boy!’”
Awww... I love your story- ALOT! I read the 1st chapter and immediatly got addicted! I've just now finished... And I do believe that I love you two blokes also... If you really are blokes, that is... You are, arent you? Well, ho hum pigs bum. Update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! And actually, we're both girls, we just called ourself Messrs to confuse people!
i like this story alot, usually J/L fics have james finally winning her over by 'showing another side' to lily, but i like that she saw him being sweet to a little kid
Even when you rumple your hair.
I hate that I’ve come to expect,
That life without you I can’t bear.
(Inspired by Kat's poem in 10 Things I Hate About You )

Your writing is great, i hope to look forward to more. sadness that this was only a one chapter story.

waiting for chapter 2 to come out was so worth it!! i checked everyday and just about started dancing around when i saw chapter 2 was out. i LOVED IT!!!! cant wait (although i will have to) for chapter 3!!
EURGH!!! I've been waiting FOREVER for chappie 4, and it was good, until the cliffhanger of death and dispair! *Sigh* Ah well, cant wait for chapter five!
That was funny. I love the Ron/Luna pairing, and Ron's genius. very funny and fitting end to the story!
WHOO HOOO! I dont feel lost anymore! *does the happy dance* thanks for updating so many chapters so quickly! This story is very well written and always exciting! Nice twist with the whole 'Filch/Umbridge' thing. I GET IT!!! Or maybe i just got a decent amount of sleep last night... Ah well, excellent story and keep updating!
Author's Response: I'm beginning to feel sorry for Lucius Malfoy. On second thought, no I don't.
One question: WHY DO YOU GET ALL THE MAD SKILLS?!?!?!?!? Ok, I'm done throwing a tantrum... *sigh* Very good chapter, and as usual, your writing is excellent and creative.
OK, so anybody who feels confused, raise your hand. *raises hand and looks around* Blast- anyway. Thanks for updating so quickly. Er, is Hermione acting mental for a reason? And how is Harry so um... oblivious. I mean, come on! "Gee thanks for hoisting the buttload of pain i should be feeling onto yourself, by the way, wanna go race brooms?" or Ron's weird rant about chastity belts and whatever else. I dunno, maybe I'm just psycho... And about the whole 'Mirror of Erised' thing, ya, that would be awesome if Harry grew up to be Minister of Magic w/ twelve kids. Thats alot of kids... I have six other siblings so- Dang it, I'm birdwalking again. Ah well, excellent chapter(s)
Author's Response: Hi Waddiwasi chik The premise of this story is that Hermione loves Harry and that Hermione gets what Hermione wants. This is rather unfortunate because Harry’s a lot of trouble. Voldemort is back. People believe Harry now. He’s a hero. Lots of girls are flirting with him. It’s driving Hermione crazy. Harry loves Hermione but she’s been acting a bit crazy. Both of these kids are under a lot of stress. The students of Hogwarts are ready to divide into camps and attack each other. Iron discipline is turning the place into a pressure cooker. A murderer is stalking the halls. The paper is full of scary news. Magical marriage? They haven’t even gone out on a date. It’s all happening too fast to process. Quidditch and flying are Harry’s escape from a depressing reality. He’s trying to help Hermione relax but he’s not very good at it.
Was is Dumbledore who put Hermione in "detention"? I dont know, it just doesnt seem like somthing that Dumblebore would do... It's so mean and sad...
Author's Response: Yes, as it stand it's very harsh. But at this point in the story Harry doesn't have all of the facts yet.
