Hi again, my dear!
Wow, Tor got some great gifts for her birthday! She's a spoiled little Slytherin princess, isn't she? Haha but I do love the descriptions of the presents that she got. I liked the mention of Theo's wand kit, and the fact that he wants to be a professional wandmaker; you're so skilled at adding real depth to these characters that aren't often seen in canon, and are shown from Harry's biased view.
Terry's gift was definitely the most creative and the best! He's a true Ravenclaw, giving her books and thinking of a way that they could communicate even when they're not together - it'll be useful over the holidays! The books that he gave her will hopefully help her become more open minded, when she sees how wonderful Muggles can be by producing some brilliant works. I know I keep mentioning the fact of her opening her mind and becoming less prejudiced, but I really want her to reject the pureblood mantra. At the same time, though, I worry that Terry's going to die, because I can't imagine Tor ending up with Malfoy if Terry was still alive...
That prank! I think you must have fun planning these. The prank that they pulled on Griz was completely overshadowed by this one, and I like the idea that there is another side to the bookish way that Ravenclaws are normally portrayed, pranking the Slytherins. I loved this prank so much, and it really made me laugh. I wonder if you're foreshadowing a bit, with Tor cuddling up to Draco? I think my favourite part was probably the Draco that was preening in the mirror. I'd have loved to see the real Draco's reaction to so many copies of him in the common room!
Author's Response: Hello, my awesome friend and reviewer who I have been sadly neglecting! :( I love all your reviews, and this was of course no exception!
Tor really is a little spoiled brat, haha, but I love her anyway and I'm also jealous of all her presents. I'm glad you liked the little details about Theo, I feel that I'd been neglecting him in recent chapters since Tor is so focused on Terry now. I'm also so happy you think the characters have depth! :)
I would have loved Terry's gift myself, which is why I thought it would be great for Tor to receive. He is such a Ravenclaw, and of course she loves that about him as well. I definitely agree, I want Tor to look beyond the pureblood sphere and art and literature are often vehicles to learning and broadening the mind. As for what will happen, well, we'll find out... eventually...
Haha, I do love planning these, and I'm glad you enjoyed this one. There's something so useful about Polyjuice potion, and so many possibilities for mischief! I'm glad you liked the little twist on the Ravenclaws, and interesting prediction about the foreshadowing! Haha, I wish I could have written it as well, I'm sure there would have been hell to pay! I imagined he'd be too busy panicking for his life in the RoR to notice anything much, however! :P
Thank you for another wonderful review dear! I'm slowly working through your amazing reviews whenever I get a chance, but receiving them really means so much to me! :)
