Yay, Merry Christmas teh! I wanted to join in the festive cheer too!

Ah, this chapter was really fantastic and I canít wait to read on as you really grabbed my attention here. I loved the floo network conversation between them all with the gossip, it really had me laughing because it was just what you would expect from them all and I wish it could have carried on for longer.

I loved the mention of Reg, it was really great though it was sad to see he was being down-trodden again and by someone junior of him. And ew for the mention of Umbridge, itís horrible to see that her influence is still around. As this paragraph seems to be for random things, I really loved this chosen time period as so much is happening and itís really great to view it from a different perspective.

The meeting with Cho was really great and there was so much tension and mixed emotion between them all. I liked how you focused on the Muggle aspect of Cho with her wearing Muggle clothes and having a Muggle job because it was a great nod to canon with her marrying a Muggle man. I liked her worn down and almost nervous air because of the war which was natural with Cedric and all. Though her putdowns to Marietta when confronted her about being the sneak was great!

Even though I felt a bit mean, Iím almost glad that Marietta got treated like that by her former friend because even if she was given the potion, her manner still isnít a nice one and she doesnít warm to me in anyway.

A fabulous start to the story teh, and I will be back soon!

Author's Response: Kiana! ♥ Happy New Year to you!!

And aah, thank you so much for your brilliant reviews on this story!! The first chaptered thing I've completed in like a decade or something. I wanted to write about the events of the wizarding world during DH through a different perspective, and to show how things were in the Ministry, so I chose Marietta because she's a really interesting character to explore. Especially since she's such an unlikable character in the books. :P

Am glad you like the Floo transcript rubbish; I did want to show how pointless and stupid some jobs are. Also, I did a course in uni analysing people's conversational transcripts, which nearly drove me insane with the sheer boredom of it.

Ahahaha, Reg! When I was writing this I thought it was pretty funny to have someone younger and newer than him treat him like rubbish...sorry, Reg...I couldn't resist... :P And I'm glad you like the meeting with Cho. As you probably know, now that you've read the whole fic, Cho doesn't reappear again in the story, though this meeting does have some impact on Marietta, hence she tries several times to repair their friendship. Cho is definitely a bit harsh toward Marietta, though I do think that the latter deserves it. (Sidenote: I actually have like...lots of Cho plunnies...which I might get down to writing sometime this year...)

Thanks for your lovely review, Kiana! ♥

teh
