Hey there- CalypsoJenna from the forums here with your requested review!

Well I do enjoy a good parody from time to time :P You mange to fit a lot of cliches into this chapter, all wonderfully recognisable and amusing. The parody-ness was consistent all the way through, but there still seemed to be a convincing plot to it all!

Peony herself is hilarious, and seems to fit so many Mary-Sue stereotypes. Caviar encrusted bacon was one of the highlights of this chapter for me, as well her array of finches...
The amazing thing is that (while I'm not sure I would love to know her) she remains likable as a character, something very impressive considering the type of story this is!

I think it's interesting that you've decided to set such a fluffy, ironic story in such a dangerous, scary part of Hogwarts history- I'd be curious to be how that will play out.

I really enjoyed her argument with Pansy as well- their animosity felt real, but also laughable, and I did giggle at Pansy's exposť over her underwear!
"The Slytherin rules stated very specifically that everyone in their house must maintain (and exploit, whenever possible) unresolved family issues" was pretty much my favourite quote of the whole chapter!

And poor Squiggles! I'm already loving the idea of Peony trying to take on a murder investigation! I thought this was a great first chapter of a very amusing story!

Author's Response: Hi, and thanks so much for coming by to review!

I'm glad you found the tone to be consistent through the chapter. Whether I can maintain it through the entire story remains to be seen. The one thing I didn't want to do with this story is rehash old plot lines, hence the chosen time period and the smash-up of stereo-types.

Pansy was a great opportunity to showcase Peony's fluffy side. They are fun to write together, just to see the sparks fly. Thanks again for letting me know what you think of my silly story!
