Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
Excellent chapter! You covered a lot of ground here, all the way from the train station to the classes, then the Quidditch, and finally that cliffhanger! Minerva definitely is very busy at school - no wonder she gets so bored at her parents' new home in Scotland, though Hogwarts can't really be that different in terms of weather or landscape. But the place has more meaning for her and feels more like home, and you really show that well here.

I loved the classroom scenes (always a soft spot for those, and you did them particularly well - very canon), but I especially loved when she was flying. You made it feel so airy and filled with endless movement - I could picture it all vividly. It was perfect to include Dumbledore like you did, a mirror of what will happen to Harry years later. It's not a surprise that Minerva will be the first girl to make her way onto the Gryffindor team, though it's more shocking when I think of how the Slytherins still don't have girl players in Harry's time, years later. I'm looking forward to seeing her putting Peakes in his place, though the character I'm more interested in learning more about is Walter.

Ahhh! There's so much going on now! I'm definitely hooked and hope to read on as soon as I can. There's so much more I could mention, but then I think I'd be commenting on every part of this chapter, so I'll just end off by saying that this is a fantastic Minerva story and I hope that you keep updating it! :D

Author's Response: Originally this chapter was taken over by the shennanigans of September 1st, but I didn't like it because it was boring and they almost got cut competely, but I'm glad I left those bits in.

I love writing classroom scenes too. I swear in some fics no one ever seems to go to class, ahha. I couldn't resist drawing the parallels between Dumbledore seeing Minerva flying and Minerva seeing Harry flying, as in my head Minerva always had quite a close relationship with Dumbledore even when she was just a student.

Eee! I'm so glad you're enjoying it. That's such a compliment! I haven't updated for awhile due to lack of inspriation (hence why I put this one down for the fic exchange) and I think you reviews have definately reawkwaned my muse for this story. Thank you! :)
