This was a hilarious story, I started to imagine afterwards what it would be like for me if Sao done just randomly ran up to me, grabbed me by the arm and told that I was now a hostage and to become part of the traditional 'Bring a muggle to school day'. I love the way Fred and George don't even really question it, just follow Melina and grab a muggle. But I have to say my favourite part was when they couldn't see the castle and there was a momentary panic in all of them and then they finally start questioning the validity of 'Bring a muggle to school day'. So is there such thing, I'm guessing not since mcgonagal goes skitz when they turn up, but why would Melina make it up? I would have liked to find out I'd she was tricked or something into believing that this was a real tradition or if she had just made it up as a prank that went wrong or something. But I do like Melina and her impulsive nature:P

Your writing, again, is flawless. I loved the little interactions between the muggles and the wizards and the comments that were made by the 'hostages'. I think you ends the story quite cleverly with the muggle managing to cause mayhem for the Wizards and not the other way round. Poor Minnie, she probably isn't best pleased with whats just occurred. I really like the way you tell a story, it's got a lovely organic process and this story was especially original. I really enjoyed it and I hope you write more humour because personally, I believe it's a strength of yours.

Lots of love,


Author's Response: Aww, you write awesome reviews. I can't even imagine what I'd do if someone actually grabbed me and apparated and told me all this stuff I didn't understand.

This was so much fun to write. Although in the beginning I really didn't think it was that funny nor did I know what sort of response I would get.

I love the bits with the muggles too, and not being able to see the castle. I had so much fun writing it, but I knew I had to take into consideration everything I knew about Hogwarts and the Wizarding World's protective charms so that I wouldn't get yelled out from some serious by-the-book devotee, but all in all I think it worked out really well. I was going to have them drag the muggles into the castle, but the thought of McGonagall finding them first was so much more tempting.

Just to be clear, I don't think there is actually a 'Bring a Muggle to School' Day considering all their wizard statute of secrecy and all. But did Melina just make it up? Did someone else tell her about it? I don't know. I too like Melina though, I'd like to write another one-shot of her. Actually I've started one, but it's not so much about pranking as this is.

Haha, the muggles do cause more mayhem for the wizards than the other way around. That is true. The trio is clearly in trouble at the end and the muggles will have to be obliviated and sent home.

And, again, I'm so happy you like my writing and thought the story was original. I had a lot of fun writing it. I didn't put as much planning into it as other stories, I just sort of let this one flow. I would like to write more humor, but everything always turns into angst for some reason.

Thanks so much for the amazing review!
