Review:George Whitman says:
Hey Branwen! I've been enjoying chatting with you about footy and I thought I'd check out some of your fanfic work. This story caught my eye because I do enjoy humor more than anything.

The self aware narrative that is prevalent in your comedy comes across well because it is honest and cuts to the chase. The topical approach of cliches in Harry Potter fan fiction is spot on and delivers amusement to the reader effectively. The strength in the piece is the reader's forced acknowledgement that not only do they recognize these cliches but they are guilty of having sought out these cliches well enough to know them, whether for amusement or guilty pleasure.

I personally enjoyed the name Partridge as it reminds me of the campy yet talented David Cassidy and his Partridge Family. I also didn't recognize that Apolline was canon until you mentioned it in the notes, though I did recognize the name as something unusual and Rowling like. I love Fleur (major crush) so I appreciate the connection even if this is just a parody. Well done!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! :) There are just so many ridiculous cliches that I couldn't resist poking fun at them, especially since, since as you pointed out, most readers have at some point or another sought out certain cliches. (Even I have. I'll admit it.) I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Thank you so much for the review! :)
