Okay, I was hoping I could just leave a review in any chapter, but it looks like I had to go and find one I hadn't reviewed! I wanted to answer some of the bits you replied with.

No, I'm actually not an English teacher. I'm a professional writer. When I get stuck on a story I'm being paid to write, I come on sites like this one to sort of recharge by working on something just for fun - and to read other writers' works to maybe shift my perspective on a current "Bill-Paying Work". I know how rotten it is for some jerk to read something you've thrown yourself into and sneer at it. The term "constructive criticism" has the word "constructive" in it for a reason. Sometimes people forget that.

I actually taught martial arts for awhile (a short while) about eleven years ago (Oh, GOD! Am I really that old now??? *shakes self*) so that's what made me think of it.

I'm with you on rather having Harry die than Tonks and Lupin. Not that I dislike Harry, but. *glances at top five list again* Yeah. J.K. was NOT nice to me. As a writer, I understand the potence of having Harry's godson mirror him in that way - never knowing his parents and all - but as a reader? Heh...

I threw my book across the room and refused to pick it back up for a few hours. I mean, really, she could have at LEAST told us HOW they died!

*grins like an idiot* Yay for cake!

Author's Response: I am a writer too, mostly columns and essays and short fictions in magazines and online. (While I am paid to write, it is far from my main source of income.) I am thrilled to meet someone who's been there! I just finished writing my first novel, and now I'm rewriting until I am happy with it (argh perfectionism!), and then I'll have to hire an agent. (I write fantasy/hist romance. What's your genre?) I have learned a lot from HPFF, mainly not to fear my writer's voice, but also how to immerse myself in a scene and then write what I 'see'. There is so much more I'd love to talk to you about! My hotmail is on my author page, after the Michener quote, so feel free to email me. If you're half as into cake and writing and Remus Lupin as I am, then we're soulmates already! :) Thanks again for your support hon!
