Review:Emily says:
I really love this story! In general, I think fan fics are really lame, but I just wanted more stories about Hogwarts, and your's has exceeded my every expectation. The writing style is your own, but it is reminiscent of J. K. Rowling's and stays true to the world of Harry Potter. This is definately more romantic (which I like) and also deals with the issue of suicide very respectfully and gracefully. My only qualm is that you swear a lot. This isn't just me being a prude, I think it detracts from the quality of the writing, and I know you're better than that. Rowling didn't need to drop the F-bomb to make her writing more powerful and neither do you. Keep up the great work! :)

Author's Response: Hi there. Thank you very much -- I don't think my writing could ever live up to J K Rowling's so I'm flattered you thought so. And it was romantic? Thank you.

I must say that I disagree with you on two of your points. Firstly, fanfiction being lame -- well, you can see why I would dispute this. I can't help but wonder why you would be on a fan fiction site if you think this.

Secondly, I didn't include the f-bombs to beef up my writing or anything. I can't help but add that if you are a prude, and you saw the warning on my story that there is strong language used, as well as countless warnings in my author's notes, then really, should you be reading it, if you're going to complain about it? Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad you liked it, and you can't have liked it without reading it, but I do think that the swearing does nothing to the quality of my writing. JKR couldn't possibly drop an f-bomb when she knew nine-year-olds were reading her books. By rating this Mature, I can drop f-bombs as I please, and I'm afraid I'll continue to do so in this story and in my other stories too. Swearing is something that happens in RL -- you'll just have to accept this, or not read any further, because I must warn you, strong language will be used in the remaining chapters of this story.

Thank you for reviewing.
