You had me at "Doctor Who". I love that show! But wait, if they're dead and chilling up in the clouds, shouldn't they already know everything? Including the answer to the first question ever asked? Doctor, who? That's another rant for another review. Let's talk about your story, shall we?

I loved this chapter! We got to see Ellie do her thing, talking to ghosts. And what a ghost! Regulus Black! I really liked how you presente him, with his devil-may-care behaviour and general wit and sarcasm. And of course, Ellie replied in the same note. This story reminds me a bit of that tv show "Ghost Whisperer", but with the difference that while the main character on the show was very serious about her ghost buddies, Ellie is laid-back and fun about it.

This line And he was cute. And dead, but who really cared about such trivial things? was simply perfect, since it showed me that she was still a teenage girl and she still had teenage interests, such as boys. His warnings were creepy and frightening, but the character's reaction to them made this a very fun chapter to read.

I love how Ginny took on the role of the twins' mother after their own mother died. It reminds me so much of how Molly was with Harry and in my mind Ginny is very similar to her mother.

Things are slowly moving forward with the plot and I like that you're taking your time, not rushing into anything. The plot so far seems thought out, the characters are well developed and the general mood of this story is light and fun! I'm looking forward to reading more!

Author's Response: AAAHHH!!! Another DW fan! Yayayayayayay! But that's the point Regulus was trying to make. Death just ain't all it's cracked up to be - at least for him.

Yeah, Ellie does her thing. And yes, Ellie's gift is influenced by my rather unhealthy obsession with that show a few years back, but I really wanted to make her different from the main character of that show. Ellie's seventeen, still trying to figure things out, and her gift complicates the situation a whole lot, so she doesn't take it as well as she pretends to. Her complete noobness becomes more obvious later on.

Regulus' warnings are supposed to be sort of ominous (also why I chose him, because I think he has the potential to do ominous well) but Regulus himself is supposed to seem unthreatening, so I thought humour might help with that!

To me, Ginny grows up to be a lot like her mother, in many aspects of her life - adopting her kids' best friends being one of them.

I'm so scared about not rushing that I sometimes wonder if I'm dragging my feet a little too much! But hopefully things turn out okay!

Thank you for the lovely review!
