I really enjoyed this beginning!

I think it's an interesting idea to set a story during OotP, with all the drama and controversy surrounding Harry and Dumbledore is at it's height, and you started that off really well here with the anxious parent, and then the prefects meeting. Is Amelia really neutral about it all? Or will we have to wait and see!

Your main character seems very three dimensional- I think it's a really original idea to make her a Slytherin- it gives her much more depth. Plus, it's nice to see a Slytherin who isn't inherently evil!

I was impressed at the beginning with the way you managed to convey a lot of information about your character very subtly. Only halfway through the chapter, I knew a lot about your character without having it explained step-by-step.

I also liked Amelia's descriptions of the new prefects- it made me smile, especially the parts about Ron and Hermione!

Great first chapter- I really enjoyed reading it!

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! I think OotP is a fascinating book - it's always been my favourite and there's so much tension and uncertainty in it. I'm sick of seeing Slytherin characters as inherently evil, especially during the Hogwarts era, and I really don't buy that they were all like that. I really love just being able to slip detail about a character into the story without having to write a few tedious introduction paragraphs. Although I get the sneaking suspicion that after six chapters I still haven't described what she looks like...whoops.
I'm glad you enjoyed it, thank you for reviewing (and for all the other reviews I see sitting above this one - you rock!)
