Hello! I'm here for the Sixth of the Twelve Days of Reviewing. :)

Ah, this is exciting! I've never read anything about the Titanic before on HPFF, and I'm really interested to see how you'll work this into the HP universe.

I love the relationship you've establised between Jared and Nate, they're so obviously friends with each other, although perhaps Nate might treat Jared a little better than Jared treates him because Nate is adopted, but nevertheless they are best friends and I think that came across really well in here.

I liked that little touch you added at the end where Jared wonders what the girls will be like because it just showed us the subtle differences in the pair and helped to characterise Jared that little bit extra.

I also really enjoyed how they viewed the Titanic as such a grand adventure, some irony there considering what happens to them in the end. And how they treated Jared's younger brother and said that sven was too young for adventures! No age is too young for adventures, not really. No age is too old for adventures either.

I found it really interesting that this deals with the Nott family. I thought the Notts were meant to be purebloods, but here they are preparing for one of their kind to take a trip on a muggle-built ship that will have muggles in it. Maybe his goes to how at peace the two worlds were before Voldemort came along.

I absoluely love the fact that you didin't tell us the name of the ship until the end, it kept a bit of the susense going even though we know what's going to happen. And then you pulled the same trick on us at the end with that remark about wishing to turn back the clock and the beginnings of worst nightmares, and if I didn't know the fate of the Titanic I would be desperate to know what you were talking about. As it is, I'm very interested in learning about what's going to happen to Jared that makes Nate so remorseful.

I really enjoyed this first chapter, you did a great job conveying a lot in so few words. Amazing work!

Author's Response: Hello!

They are definitely best friends, always have been. Nate has always been a little... clingier, I guess you could say, because he's not a real Nott, he doesn't want to lose what he has. But Jared treats him as he would a brother, doesn't fear the same things because he won't leave Nate. :)

Titanic was probably seen as a grand adventure to everyone, what with all the press and being called unsinkable, so I think Nate and Jared would definitely think the same things... until the end happens. No age is too young or too old for adventures, unless you're an older brother who doesn't want his little brother interfering. :D

The Notts are Pureblood, but they are also old money and used to having the best. Titanic would have been considered among the best, something that not many others in their circle would have. And it was before Voldemort, so it was a little more acceptable because it showed money.

It's good that I get to keep the suspense going, even though we essentially know how everything will end. Ah, does something happen to Jared or does it happen to Nate? ;)

Thank you so much for leaving a review!

Sam.
