-BookDinosaur- here with your requested review!

This was a really nice one-shot, pleasant and easy to read.

I love how you did indeed bust the cliche by portraying them as merely friends, not mortal enemies or Romeo and Juliet-esque lovers.

I think the best part of the story was the description-you didn't give paragraphs and paragraphs about what everything looked like, but I could see the house and the clearing very clearly in my mind. The tiny details you threw in for example, the 'cobblestone path lined with roses', really made the whole thing come to life in my mind.

Just one thing that didn't make sense to me-you said he 'received a letter in June detailing his exam marks from the previous term'. Shouldn't that be 'previous year'? From what I remember, Harry never got a letter for each term, although that may have changed during next gen time. Sorry if it feels like I'm nitpicking, I'm obsessed with keeping things canon is all. ;)

Overall, this was a really good one-shot and I really enjoyed reading it.

Author's Response: Hello, and thank you for stopping by :)

I'm pleased to hear that you felt like the story wasn't cliche (exactly the point!) and enjoyed the description. I meant for the piece to have a sort of light, airy, pseudo-elegant feel to it.

You're right about the term thing. I had always assumed 'term' and 'year' were synonymous in Britain, but a quick Google search told me I was wrong. So thank you for pointing that out so I could go correct it!

Thanks for your fabulous review :)
