So you've left me some really awe-inspiring jaw-dropping reviews in the past and I do not forget! Saw your story and penname sitting right on top of the Recently Added and plunged in and I think this is one of the funniest beginnings I've read in a goodly long time. I thought you were going to focus on James Sirius Potter's demigodlikeness and enchanting looks and suaveness, but you did something better, and showed what a bit of an idiot he actually is. The confused personalityless lump with the panty dropper acoustic guitar whom all the girls scream and fawn over in the loo...you've got everything perfectly ridiculous and ridiculously perfectly oh-my-god. Apologies for incoherence; this story has decimated my ability to speak properly.

I'll admit, when I read the smorgasbord metaphor along with its allergy bit, all the array of girls which James is afraid of going near, I honestly thought of STDs. :P Sorry, don't know what this says about me. Except that I'm clearly an idiot. And bahaha! James singing that Song for Someone Special turns out to be Sparky the Spaniel who washes up on the shore. And the LYRICS. Once upon a time it was you and me / But now it's just me and the deep blue sea. SNERKXZ

But moving on, Augusta's voice is just an absolute scream and full of wit and snark and whatever it is, I'm so glad you excavated this out of whatever folder and posted this up! I know you've been around for a long time and you hardly read fic anymore, but honestly this was just brilliant, and I do hope you'll continue to post more chapters!

Loving this so far! ♡ ♡ ♡ And I can't wait to see God's practical Joke in action!

Author's Response: Ahh okay, I totally did not expect you to review this and I feel so so so bad that this is the first fic of mine you've read. I have this thing where I automatically think the darker fics are better, and so I am mildly horrified that you did read it, but much more humbled and glad that you enjoyed it!

Heh, I suppose it would be tempting to indeed focus on James Sirius Potter's demigodlikeness and how fabulous and mysterious a wizard he is. Because he is all of those things. I love 'confused personalityless lump' -- that's totally it. Not that I think he's particularly personality-less; I think he just happens to fit in the generic Attractive-Sweet Male OC form you see so much, and there's more to him than that. The idiocy, the lameness. (It took me a long time to figure out how to say 'JAMES IS DERPY' without using the word derpy). "Perfectly ridiculous" is what I was aiming for, but "ridiculously perfectly oh-my-god" is a big deal so thank youuu! Incoherence is my middle name.

You know, now every time I read the smorgasbord metaphor, I think of STDs now too! So clearly you're not an idiot. And thank you thank you thank you to all of the things that follow, especially regarding Augusta's voice! Which is the reason I salvaged this at all. I will do my best to update, and hopefully you continue to enjoy. Thank you again so very much! :)
