Oh for the love of god, I just realized that I accidentally put some of my comments for this chapter in my review of the last chapter, lol! Oops!! I just read 2 chapters back-to-back and so I got mixed up. So everything I said about Ron in my last review SHOULD HAVE been stated here, lol!! Oops!! ^_^;
I guess I'll take so me time here then to say a few more things about the last chapter, since I already talked about this chapter back there, haha!! One thing I wanted to point out was how Aaron kind of reminded me a little of Draco, the way he was always teasing her like that. Stupid git. Oh well, I suppose there has always got to be one of those kids in every school, no matter where you go, lol!
The transition between her 1st year and 6th year was also very nice and smooth. I thought that you did a really nice job with that and it doesn't feel anywhere near as rushed now!! Great work, and kudos to your Beta as well! Beta Readers make the word a far better place, as far as I am concerned, lol! I know that I would certainly be lost without either one of mine, haha!! ;)
But anyways, moving onto the correct chapter now. from what I can remember, this chapter seems to be pretty much the same as it was before for the most part. I was glad to see that you did make an author's note about the language thing at the beginning of the chapter. It was a whole lot less distracting that way, haha!!
I also find it really cool to be reading about Hogwarts from the perspective if someone who has no idea what all of it is about yet. I mean, she doesn't even know who Harry is yet, lol! This is why I love HPFF so much, you know? Because thru reading & writing, we can rediscover Hogwarts and the world of HP thru our own characters, and in our own way!
And even tho I already know all of the faces and all of the places, I absolutely love being inside of Jayde's head here and watching as she makes the same discoveries that we made thru Harry over 10 years ago when SS came out!! So thanks for writing such a fabulous story, my dear, and for coming up with such a marvelous character like Jayde Newsome!! She really is the best, and I cannot wait to learn more about her character as she grows and learns to control her new-found powers, haha!! =)
Author's Response: Haha, again, the mix-up's totally okay! I'm glad the transition between her school years was much smoother, and I totally agree that Betas make the world a better place!!
And yes, Aaron IS a bit like Draco, and I'm glad you caught on to that; that'll be a major factor in events that take place later on!! *winks* And yes, there's always someone like that everywhere you go; at least, in my experience anyway.
And thank you for pointing out that the way I had the Author's notes was distracting! I'm so glad you did, so that I could go back and change those things while I was changing everything else!
And I totally agree, it's amazing to re-discover Hogwarts through the eyes of another character. Some stories I've read stick strictly with the originals, but still add in another character we didn't know about and give you a whole new view of what happened in the series; it's amazing!
Awww, thanks for saying my character's marvelous!! I promise, there's more about her and her powers in the coming chapters!!
Thanks SO MUCH, Deana! *hugs*
