Ah, I loved seeing Hermione in action today, it was brilliant! I thought you captured what she would be like at work perfectly with her great comebacks and how she was thinking of how much she had changed the Magical Creatures lives. The comment about Remus made me all warm and fuzzy and I wished he could have seen her do all what she did.
I loved her colleagues Ė they were such easy people to hate it was a lot of fun for me. I loved the backstory to Eric and I wish I could have seen it happen because he doesnít seem like the type to take rejection easily. Then there was Mr Thornhillís stupid comment but this was an amazing comeback Ė Ď'Mr Thornhill,' Hermione said sharply, colour rising in her cheeks. 'Would you like me to list the ways in which that comment is misogynistic, archaic and inappropriate, or would you like to puzzle it out for yourself? Either option might take all day." Ď where you channelling your thoughts towards Darkwin Duck onto him?
Another thing I liked was the wizarding alternatives to ante-natal care as it made me smile a lot to see the mixture of magic and Muggle. Then Hermioneís thoughts about them were so sweet! Of course she would follow them all!
Aw, Ron heís just so ♥ ♥ The cutest thing was how he gave Crookshanks the treats secretly :P I loved his thoughts about the Prophet as it was nice to see what the others were up to, again, the mention of Scorpius is making me hopeful of Scorose spin-off of this :P
Aw hormonal Hermione made me want to cry as she was just so sweet and helpless and yeah. Hmm, I wonder what Ronís up to. Iím pretty certain I know what I just donít want to say in case I curse it. An awesome chapter!
Author's Response: Kiana! A thousand zillion bajillion apologies for abandoning my reviews for so long... I do read and appreciate all of them, I've just been having some struggles with writing, and my 'online' life recently. I'm making a tentative return now though!
You know, it was quite daunting, sitting down to write Hermione in action! She's a force to be reckoned with, and so clever... I was worried I wouldn't quite do her justice! But I was really mean and made her have a bad day at work so that I could keep up with her ;) Aw yeah, Remus. He didn't *really* have to die, did he??
Ooh, Eric Thornhill! I think we've all met him, or components of him, at some point. Slimy, icky ick. And hahah! I may well have channelled some of my old DD rage thataway!!
Oh, Hermione. Bless her. You're quite right, she would of course try and take evry single possible piece of information that's out there!
That thing between Ron and Crookshanks is based on my dad and our old dog. He would always moan and say the dog wasn't manly enough to be seen with, but then I'd see him secretly give the doggy treats and hugs when he thought he was alone! Heehee.
Ohh, you're making me think Scorosey thoughts too! I don't know if it's going to fit in to this story yet; I'll have to see how it goes. I *am* working on a dark Scorose right now though!
Aw, hormonal Hermione. I have a horrible feeling that I'm writing my own future pregnancies... I'm emotional enough anyway!
So, what *is* Ronnie up to?! I'm near to posting the next chapter, so maybe you'll see if you're right.
