I've been meaning to read this and when I saw your name in the Review Tag, I had to quickly jump in here before I started my homework. :)

I really enjoyed this. It was excellently written and you have a solid character that is very easy to relate to. I think anyone would be upset with a best friend suddenly disappearing because of a boy, especially since it seems they've been friends for ages, and it certainly threw off Marianna's studying techniques.

I love how you made the library so disorganized and how difficult it was to find the books she needed to pass her class - and I certainly felt frustrated for her because of that, and her roommate stealing her book (whether or not she actually did is still debatable, of course). Madam Pince's warning about how to take care of a book and Marianna's obvious reverence for things of knowledge can make me certainly understand how upset she is when that Hufflepuff spilled eggs on the pages. I'd be angry too!

I also really liked how the eagle knocker gave trickier riddles if you were nice to it - it again shows us how much Marianna enjoys challenges - though apparently not exams that she's ill-prepared for, it seems.

I really enjoyed this and I'll try to get around to reading the remaining chapters as a reward for finishing my homework tonight. Nicely done. :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing; I loved reading your review and it's put a huge smile on my face! I'm so glad that you liked the story- I certainly had a lot of fun writing it!

I'm glad that you think Marianna is easy to relate to- she was a lot of fun to write, partly, I think, because her reactions are similiar to what mine would be in these situations, only more exaggerated. It was quite interesting to get into her head and figure out what would make her annoyed.

I actually thought of the eagle knocker-riddle detail after I was finished writing the majority of her part. I was originally going to write it as "If you were nice to the knocker, it would give you easier riddles" but that's not very Ravenclaw-y, now is it?

I look forward to your future reviews and thanks once again for reviewing!
