Ok. I'm not sure if you noticed or not, but I posted a review from the Ravenclaw collaboration account... Not my brightest moment, by any means. But anyway, here it is again:

Oh my god, I saw that comment on the forums and laughed out loud... But you've totally cemented it. You somehow managed to make "apprentice cheesemaker" sound both serious and risky at the same time. *shakes head in confusion*

What grounded it was Teddy's curiosity about his father, definitely. Without that, it would have seemed like a weak idea at best. But with that, you made it into a relatable thing. I got a glimpse of the Teddy you see. I liked him, too.

My favorite part was actually where he mused about bringing something he'd made to Christmas. In a world where it feels like everyone works at a desk, where few people have a refined craft like they used to, it was a good tidbit to add. Made me kind of glad I'm a writer, because I certainly have something to show for my work/wasted time.

Overall, quiet enjoyable. And, serious as it was, I couldn't stop laughing... at myself. For falling for this apprentice cheesemaker story. :P Great job.

Author's Response: Hi Sarah!

You know, I did see that review, and I wondered if it was from Alopex because I knew she had the password for the collab account. :)

Anyway, I'm so pleased you enjoyed this. It was a bit of a bizarre idea, which was probably why Alo hadn't been able to make anything of it, but she generously allowed me to use it and I just went with the flow. It had occurred to me before that Teddy would probably wonder about his dad so the Greta Catchlove thing really tied that in very well.

And yes, I too think that the making-something-you-can-hold-in-your-hands is appealing in a world where, as you say, everyone seems to have a desk job. So it would help Teddy feel like he'd achieved something when he goes to visit the over-achievers that probably dominate the Potter/Weasley clan. I'm very glad you appreciated that because I thought it was well worth a mention. :)

Thanks again, Mel
