Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
I chose this story because I was intrigued by the concept of telling a story in three different versions. I'm glad I chose it! I'm looking forward to seeing the other two chapters and finding out what this scene is like from different points of view.

Marianna, oh my goodness. She is like six Hermiones crammed into one brain. Working out the math of how much notes she would have the opportunity to read while walking to class, and calculating every aspect of her day just so, really amused me. I think that my schedule would probably drive Marianna nuts (there's no order to it at all). I enjoyed her near-manic OCD tendencies to micromanage everything, even coaxing one of her friends into following into her sleep patterns. And when she said that when you were nice to the Ravenclaw dormitory knocker, it actually gave you trickier riddles (which she seemed to look forward to!) I just sat there thinking that there is no way I could ever be in Ravenclaw. My whole high school career was about how to get out of doing difficult things and procrastinating everything until the last moment. To read about a character so opposite was actually kind of fun.

Losing it over fried eggs. I cannot imagine. But from her point of view, I can see how this ruined everything. Marianna thinks not just of the here and now, but how her entire day is going to operate, and if a wrench is thrown into one part of it, the rest gets messed up, too. So eggs on her book is practically a reason for tears. It's unfortunate that Flitwick heard her. I couldn't believe he gave her a detention for that, since it seems that kids at Hogwarts are forever doing bad things and all they get are a few deducted points, but I suppose that Flitwick must expect more from students in his House and is therefore more strict with them. Poor Marianna is probably going to lament all of the things she could have been doing while she serves her detention.

Great first chapter!

Author's Response: Hello there! I'm sorry I haven't responded before this... I've just been really busy.

Haha- that's a nice analogy! Marianna certainly is a more intense version of Hermione. I'm glad that you enjoyed her odd tendencies- they were certainly fun and interesting to write. She's the extreme version of a good student- I just had to take some of my tendencies and multiply them in intensity by approximately a hundred. :D

Yes, the Ravenclaw knocker is one of her joys and would probably be the death of me. I'm just no good with riddles (I get really frustrated with them and the only time it seems that I can figure them out is when I knew the answer already).

I'm glad that Marianna's reaction worked within the context of her personality. I'm sure it would have seemed rather insane, otherwise. Yes, Flitwick has a stricter policy for his Ravenclaw students- they are supposed to be the reasonable and intelligent ones, after all.

Thanks so much for the great review! I really enjoyed reading it!
