I've read quite a lot of post-Hogwarts, pre-Next Gen, young adult trio sort of stories (what can I say, being a validator means you see a broad range of stuff on the site), but not as many side character centered stories in this era.

I'm so glad you pointed out the unflattering nature of school uniforms. It's so true, and so rarely addressed in fanfic. You'd think they were all on the Victoria's Secret runway the way some stories talk about clothes. And I like the name you picked for your OC, it fits well with the rest of Harry's class at school. Sounds very British to me. I feel Edie's pain on old lady names, as my middle name is for my grandmother and is a total old lady name and I've always hated it. Of course, Edie's namesake sounds far cooler than my grandmother ever was.

I never thought of Witch Weekly as intended for teenage girls rather than older ladies. Since Mrs. Weasley reads it, I've always pictured it as sort of Good Housekeeping and sort of Star - part unreliable gossip and part articles on losing weight and 10 ways to cook a pork chop kind of things. It would be less repellent as a teen beat kind of magazine, I suppose. lol

Your writing is excellent. Practiced and adult, and by that I mean you don't write like you're young and inexperienced with the written word, and that is a very good thing. Polished, you know? Your grammar is great, flow is good, vocabulary, all that. Looks great :)

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks so much for the review. I did indeed take some liberties with Witch Weekly--namely that it is no longer a weekly publication--but I wanted to keep as many things canon as I could, with so many OCs and locations I've included that aren't in the Potterverse.

I haven't quite decided if I want to address that within my story, or if I just want readers to kind of overlook it and assume that bit is slightly AU.

Thank you so much for the review!
