Hello! Remember that person you were emailing on YouTube? The one who said that she read 'Forgettable Me', but not 'Lying Josephine' for fear that she would love it and that it wouldn't be updated in another eighty years? Probably not, but any way, this is she! *people cheer and clap, angsty guy in the back shouts "Who cares?"*
I was reading someone's favs page and saw this and was just like 'Ooh, I remember that author. I'm a gonna go read it.' So I did, and I loved it! Poor Suzy Boone! Ha. See what I did there? See what I... No? Okay.
I loved it because I hate when people go 'Kay, Gryffies are the good guys: brave, friendly, got their hearts in the right place, if occasionally a bit thick or conceited. Claws are the boring nerds. Puffs are dim and far too nice. You never get anywhere being nice. Slytherins, those Snakes, oh, they- they are just pure evil.
'Okay! I have a super original idea! I'll right a fanfic where the Gryffindors are the good guys who sweep in to save the otherwise insignificant and unremarkable masses of Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs from the evil Slytherins! I am just brilliant.'
I remember I was scrolling thru the Next Gen stories and I came across one that had a summary that went something like this: This person is mean, rude, and is never nice to anyone. She is really awful and you should stay away from her if you value your life. Biggest surprise? She's a Gryffindor.
I'm not even gonna explain why that annoyed me.
On to the part where I actually talk about the story. I thought it was really great that Susan stood up the teacher and the Klyde guy. His girlfriend is pooey. So Susan completed the challenge without hurting the dragon, which I think would be important to do if she wants to go into a field that involves helping (emphasis on the help) dragons, not killing them. She definitely showed them all that Hufflepuffs are not people to mess with.
All in all, I loved it and I am favouriting it and PLEASE WRITE MORE. Please?
THE MOST AMAZING-EST (I hate double superlatives) PERSONAGE IN DA WHOLE WIDE WORLD (except for JKR. No one is as amazing as J. K. Rowling.)
Author's Response: Hello, there! I do in fact remember you! How could I possibly forget? You were so kind in your messages! :-D
It's so amazing to hear that you found this story through someone's favorite's list, and just as awesome that you actually remembered who I was! Very cool. And this review is just wonderful!
I am so on your side about the way many people categorize the Houses - Gryffies are good, Snakes are bad, and who cares about the other houses! And Hufflepuff especially gets left behind because 'at least Ravenclaw's are smart!' It's frustrating, but very comforting to see that we share the same view!
Yay, Susan! I think she was definitely feeling like she needed to prove herself, and facing a dragon may seem a little extreme, but hey, she proved her worth! hehehe It saddens me that Hufflepuffs always seem to need to prove themselves, but it does make for some great underdog characters and moments! I really loved writing an empowered Puff! And thank you so much for the favorite! And, you'll be happy to know that I have a brand new story in the queue as we speak, as well as plans to update Lying Josephine!
So basically, thank you so much for taking the time to leave me this wonderful review! You ARE amazing-est! ;)
