Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
It was the last line that did it for me, encapsulating the three chapters I read to a T. It was a perfect way to end the chapter, and I'm surprised that more people haven't reviewed this chapter, even just to comment on that final line. Muggle Studies is fun... if you enjoy such things as these students get up to. Poor Archibald!

This story makes for an excellent comedy - I can definitely picture it being some sort of wizard sitcom (it could work over the Wizarding Wireless Network). Writing it in this style as a short story collection rather than a continuous story makes it a refreshing read - I haven't read a fanfic collection in a while, and this format does have a very different feel to it. I can't completely describe it because, while there aren't cliffhangers or an overarching plot stringing the chapters together, there's still something in this that pulls readers along to see what happens next.

The authors names... major laughs there. Even James Herriot is an author (rather than just a character - the books are biographical *nerdishness*), and as a literature nut, I caught all of the references. My god, the wizards have chosen the craziest names for their kids, but it's a very different crazy from those ridiculous names all the Mary Sues get. :P I appreciated Archibald's jokes toward his students, especially poor Lawrence. XD

Excellent work on this story! I still have to catch up on your McGonagall one, but I'm glad that I was able to read a different kind of story from you - this isn't one I normally would have read, so those review exchanges definitely come in handy sometimes. :D

Author's Response: Hey there Violet Gryfindor! I've just had this horrible moment when I realised that I still owe you reviews and am now metaphorically hitting myself over the head with something heavy and metaphorical.

YES! This should definitely be a sitcom. Ohmygosh, I'm totally imagining it now and I would really really really love to watch it, ahha. I'd never written a short story collection before and I guess I thought it would be easier to write given I have quite a lot of WIPS on the go.. and I've really enjoyed it.

Yes! I know James Herriot is also the author (who doesn't love All Creatures Great and Small?) and I'll probably insert that in my authors not at some point. Not really sure why I didn't throw it out tere in the first place. Ahha, I really loved writing about the wizardings kids names - so much fun to write about, ahah.

Thank you for such a lovely review and am so sorry about your reviews! They will be with you VERY SOON I SWEAR! :)
