Sorry that I've gotten to this so late for the review swap but I'm finally here now.

I've got mixed feelings about Florence because she seems exactly like the type of person I'd probably hang around but at the same time it seems like she thinks the worst of people. Like with Lily for example, Lily might've sat with the three girls on the train to Hogwarts because she couldn't find her friend but at least she was nice and took an interest in everyone's life.

Mary seems like the really quiet and ordinary type. She doesn't attract attention to herself and she doesn't feel the need to talk for no reason. I also feel a little bit bad for her because the Slytherins seems to pick on her. I think it has something to do with her being muggleborn but I'm not sure.

I really enjoyed this first chapter and the main reason for that is because of how ordinary it is. I'm so used to seeing September 1st being full of excited best friends that tackle their friends to the ground in hugs and such in fanfiction. This was a nice change from that. It showed that September 1st was just another ordinary day, slightly crowded and full of magical folks but normal nonetheless.

The summary makes the story sound very interesting however so I'm quite excited to see what happens next.

Author's Response: Hey, no worries at all!

I'm used to people having mixed feelings with Florence and that's entirely the point. She's a great character to write. I love it, but there is an aspect of her that I just don't like. Sometimes she can be quite funny and I'd probably enjoy her sarcasm, but there is definitely a darkness underneath that makes her quite destructive. Thinking the worst of Lily for one thing, i'm not saying Lily is the greatest character in this story, because she isn't, but Florence will always, if given the chance, think the worst of someone.

I've never really connected to the overdramatic entrances of September 1st. I like the ordinary things in life which is why i think i have a tendency to focus so much on them in my stories. I think that most of life for most people is quite ordinary. You have some you may be a bit overdramatic about seeing friends, but I can't remember ever actually ever seeing someone tackle someone to the ground for joy of seeing a person. But anyway, thank you so much for your review and your comments! I really appreciate it!
