It feels good to be back, even though it's been less than a day! First of all, I just wanted to thank you for re-requesting and for responding to my last set of reviews- your replies really made me laugh.

I feel like I spend most of my time while reading your story just laughing at the things Ellie says. I really like how you've made her sort of a mixture of serious and funny, I think it really adds to the story. It takes that edge off. I liked the part about the restricted section- especially how Ellie manipulated the situation to fit her needs. Are you sure she's not secretly a Slytherin?

As usual, loved the interaction between Regulus and Ellie. I love how he's so calm and collected, and Ellie...well, isn't. As you put it, he really has his stuff (damn the 12+ rule) together. Albus is wonderful, of course. I'm really looking forward to see more interaction between the two of them- I just find it so hilarious. (And yeah, Ellie your comebacks probably do need a bit of work) Regulus' little interjections were brilliant, by the way. And the Sexual Tension Saga- I think I laughed for a good five minutes at that.

The fact that Ellie is being, reasonably, truthful makes me laugh. The part of the 'boyfriend' standing right next to Albus and him not believing it, though truthfully Regulus is there, was awesome. If I were Ellie, I'd just be chuckling to myself like all the time. The little references you make are wonderful, especially because they're things that most people know. You're not making references to some obscure wizarding book that was mentioned like once in the book series, but things like Pride and Prejudice. I think the fact that we know about that book makes Ellie's reference funnier and more realistic.

I love the voice you've given Ellie. I honestly think it's wonderful and I don't think there's a better narrator for your story. You've written her so well!

Author's Response: I'm happy to make people laugh in any small way I can. It's so nice of you to laugh even at my bad jokes.

It is absolutely fantastic if you're laughing at Ellie - or more specifically, at what she says. She walks that line between comedy and drama so well, and I'm glad that it shows. And the secret Slytherin thing? - FUTURE PLOT POINT SO I CAN'T GIVE SPOILERS.

Regulus is actually such a lovely foil for Ellie at the moment. He's the only one even nearly sassy (and dead) enough to go head to head with her at the moment. I'm glad you like Albus - because he's absolutely terrible when it comes to writing him. Never have I had so much trouble with a character as I am having with him.

The thing they say about truth being stranger than fiction really is so true for Ellie. The bloke lives in a world full of magic and dragons, and he just can't believe that someone can see different kinds of dead people. I love that aspect about human nature. As to Ellie's references - she lives a lot of her life in the Muggle world, and that shows, often to her detriment.

Thanks so much for this review! I appreciate your appreciation for Ellie!
