Review:Rumpelstiltskin says:
First of all, I think this is a delightfully refreshing idea for a story. I don't recall having read a McGonagall-centered story before. Furthermore, with having the story set during her youth...well, I found that to be brilliant. I'm definitely intrigued by this notion.

As far as characterization is concerned, I think you've done a wonderful job. McGonagall has this bit of quirky attitude to her, which is I can make small correlations to her "older" cannon. I found myself chuckling at her reactions and thoughts, so I really think you've done a fantastic job with her. Then there's Grimm. What a fabulously crass character. He mildly reminds me of a Malfoy, with his own sassy flair (though I doubt he would appreciate me calling him sassy). Obviously, the two conflict and he absolutely treads on McGonagall's nerves, so I'm anticipating how these two contrasting characters will interact throughout the story. On a similar note, although they seem to contrast, they both have an attitude about them which, I'm certain, will provide me with an abundance of entertainment.

I can't believe that she slapped him...that was brilliant! I'm pretty sure that was the point where I laughed the most. Just, awesome. I'm entirely on McGonagall's team now (I'll be her fangirl for the story).

This is very well-written, only adding to it's entertainment quality. Furthermore, the way you've ended this (with MgGonagall's uncertainties and lingering questions), was a fantastic way to pique curiosity (specifically my own).

Fantastic job, I can't wait to read more!


Author's Response: You haven't read a Minvera story before? :O Wow! I've been immersed in reading and writing them for so long that I can't imagine what it must be like reading one for the first time. Her character offers many possibilities for stories, and I definitely recommend reading more about her!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and review this story! It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed this first chapter, and especially Minerva's characterization.

You've caught on to a significant aspect of Grimm and Minerva's relationship - that no matter how opposite they appear to be, they do share a number of qualities. There's a certain nameless something - a kind of aura or worldview - that they have in common, and it brings them together as much as their opposition repels them. It makes them fascinating and absolutely frustrating at the same time.

Thank you again!
