Hey there, you requested a review from me on the forums quite awhile back and now I'm finally getting round to clearing out my queue. Sorry about the long wait.

This was such a beautiful little gem of a story. Again, its complete orginal which was just fab and Frank's tone was just really pompous and hillarious. A couple of comments really made me smile ("I hate french cephalopods," for one) and I don't think anyone could have read this without finding it funny.

Your authors note just added to it - I bet you're a hillarious person. It just seemed to drip with wit (and oh, that rhymes!) and I loved everything about it.

I liked the fact that the whole thing was Dumbledore's fault, but it was very strange to have him being called 'Al.' At first I thought you meant the next gen Al before my brain caught up with me and I reminded myself that wouldn't make any sense whatsover, but it was pretty hard for me to associate Al with Dumbledore. Still, I loved the connection you made there, all the comments about pearls and the stuff about his therapist (I hope he developes abandonment issues). Oh, you're so very funny.

I didn't spot any mistakes either. It all seemed to flow nicely. It was very... clean and easy to read.

You said you were wondering if there was too much backstory? Most definately not, I loved it. Short story/short story collection? Now, I'm not so sure about that. Whilst I thought it was a fab one-shot I'm not alltogether sure what else you could do with it. It would either be wonderful or a bit a flop. If you like you could always PM me on the forums and tell me what you were thinking of so I can give you a more insightful opinon :)

Thanks for requesting and sorry for such a long wait.

Author's Response: Hi AC!!! It's fine! thanks for taking the time to do this!

I'm actually really not hilarious in person, but I have odd notions of the world and it comes out in my writing sometimes :D I understand the confusion with 'Al' and I could change the first instance of 'Al' to Albus, I don't know if that would help much. With the story collection: I had a reviewer who really wanted to see the story expanded into Dumbledore finding out what he did and more about Frank and undersea life. I personally agree with you and think it's complete the way it is, adding to it would feel like destroying what's already there. I just wanted to get another opinion on that! Thank you so much! I really appreciated this review ^_^
