Review:MargaretLane says:
This is a very small thing, but I'm wondering how common time outs were in the UK in the 1990s. They come across as a bit of a modern thing to me. I would more have expected children in the early '90s to get a scolding or a smack or be sent to their rooms.

Yikes, my immediate thought when there was a mention of a prisoner and her father, was could Sirius Black BE her father?

I think you've really captured Sir Cadogen's craziness here. It must be really irritating having him guarding the portrait hole. But then Ravenclaws have to wait until they figure out the riddle or somebody else does, so I guess she's not doing TOO badly.

Extra credit sounds kind of American for a British boarding school.

I was expecting Lupin to notice her sketches when she'd been drawing in class and then he started talking to her afterwards.

Poor Remus. He's trying to hide his lycanthropy, worrying about whether or not he should let Dumbledore know about Sirius being an Animagus and probably dealing with the constant reminders that his old friend is, he thinks, a killer and also now dealing with Sally-Anne's problems.

Author's Response: Hm, maybe they weren't called time outs per say, but getting sent to one's room could be the same as getting a time out. I don't really know.

The Sirius Black connection . . . ooh . . . that will be confirmed or denied in Chapter 11. :)

Oh, I spent a lot of time learning about Sir Cadogan from the books and Pottermore (more time than I would have liked actually). He really was quite insane. I would still rather face Ravenclaw's riddle though, but that's just me.

I actually got the idea for extra credit from Hermione's Charms exam back in PS. She told the others that she got a 112% on her exam, meaning Flitwick gave out extra credit. I don't think all teachers would have accepted Sally-Anne's extra credit, but some like Flitwick might see it as some sign that the material has been learned.

I have to say, Remus Lupin is my favorite HP character. Because of that, I tend to put him through a tough time in every one of my stories. He's trying to do his best given his own problems, and now I'm throwing Sally-Anne's problems at him too (not to mention that he's going to be helping Harry out eventually).

Thank you again for taking time to review between chapters! And I'm sorry again for how long it's taking me to respond!
