Hi again. This chapter was a thoroughly enjoyable read! Great chapter title - it's so Lockhart. I love the style of your writing, so full of vivid description. It just immerses the reader in the setting. I could just feel myself walking in the forest along with these characters, with all my sense. Great humor too, both subtle and obvious - just like your riddles. I enjoyed the bowtruckle scene - I used the same combination of bowtruckles, wood lice and fairy eggs in one of my own short story scenes, so I loved reading a similar scene by another author just for some fun comparison. And I loved your scene with Flitwick catching fairies - so imaginative and well-written with a fairy tale sort of charm. In fact, I really like your characterization of Flitwick. He's a character we didn't get to know terribly well in the books, and I think he's so interesting. It's a shame Rowling didn't explore him a bit more. I also enjoyed your explanations of the lore at the chapter's end as well. In a word, I'd describe this story as just charming - just like the story title. I'll be on the lookout for more of this story. It's going on my 'currently reading' list.

Author's Response: Hello!

Thanks again - I am really glad that you found the chapter funny. I love your comments about the descriptive aspects of my writing. Although, I think I am now running out of synonyms for 'trees', 'forest' ... etc! Hehe!

I would love to read your story with the bowtruckles! It would be fab if you could send me a link to it! To be honest, I just liked the idea of Lockhart being pelted with wet, muddy insects!

The fairy scene was quite difficult to write - I wanted them to dance, but apart from that I wasn't sure how it would play out. I was listening to the soundtrack from David Bowie's 'The Labyrinth' and I just imagined the fairies dancing to the song 'As the World Falls Down' - to me it just gives the impression of swirling stars.

I am glad you liked my characterisation of Flitwick; it is rather fun to write for him because we don't know that much about him (I think it gives me a little more leeway with regard to canon).

As you can probably tell from my riddles, I really enjoy researching things; the fairy lore was rather fun and I learnt quite a lot in the process!

Thank you ever so much for your equally charming comments. It was really lovely to read your review - It is really exiting to be on your 'currently reading' list!
