Renny, I really liked this and thought you did an excellent job playing this off in relation to Northanger Abbey by turning it into a parody of it. Your heroine, Catherine, is very much like your average teenager and I love how you write her as Jane Austen would any of her characters. The whole chapter felt very much like it came out of a Jane Austen novel, while at the same time it had a modern air to it, too, so kudos there.

Over all, it feels very original and I'm looking forward to reading how you write Remus Lupin once he steps into the story as the hero. Excellent conversion and keep up the excellent writing; I'm also happy to hear that this has stretched you to your limits by forcing you to write stories that focus on other characters and that Severus does not make an appearance. So far I think you're conquering this challenge pretty hardily. Keep up the fabulous work and I'm looking forward to reading more later. :)

Author's Response: Thanks, Leslie! I really thought this was such an amazing idea for a challenge, so it was impossible for me to pass up. It was totally worth sacrificing my "relaxing" time while my toddler is napping to do it. I'm really glad you're liking it so far, and that you think I did an ok job of Austen-izing the Harry Potter things (or did I Potter-ize the Austen things?).

Remus might seem a bit too much like Henry Tilney in what I've written so far, but I don't think it's much of a stretch to think he would be trying to move on from his grief four years after his friends died. Things will definitely get a bit more serious once Remus sees Catherine on his doorstep at home and realizes his harmless flirting of earlier has crossed into new territory. I'm really looking forward to writing the actual "Southanger" Abbey part, but of course it will take forever to get there just like in Austen's book! :)

And yes, Severus will not make an appearance AT ALL! There will be one tiny, aside mention of him as a joke (he's just too Gothic himself not to use that for added humor), but that's it. Thanks so much for creating such a cool challenge and for the review! ~Renny
