Review:Rumpelstiltskin says:
I definitely love the image of Minerva reading in her chair. The contrast between the mood of the last chapter and this chapter was astounding. When Saide was outside in the pouring rain, cold and hungry, Minverva was curled up in a chair, warm and content. I really love that contrast, it's spectacularly brilliant!

I also really liked the concept of the international Floo System, and she charges the extra Floo to Minverva -- that made me laugh!

Oh, and Ophelia is a fantastic character. My goodness, I don't think I've read such an eccentric character since, well, I can't think of a proper comparison! The turning Sadie into a chicken thing certainly does explain why the world around her was getting larger in the first chapter. Also, what a fitting friend for McGonagall. She's certainly different than Minerva, and both of their animagi forms are cat...which alludes to their personalities.

I think you've also introduced the level of importance that Sadie actually has nicely. Obviously, a reader without extra information wouldn't know who Jenny or Charlie were, so they're still kind of in that dark about why this character is important, but we know that she is important because of the reactions to the news! Excellent job there!

I also loved the way that you continuously reiterated that Sadie wasn't responding, to, well, anybody, though it isn't revealed why. Without coming right out and saying things, it allows for mystery AND intrigue! I think it's fantastic.

Anyway, I'm happy to see Sadie leaving NYC for some place where she will be taken care of!

I'll definitely be back tomorrow for more!


Author's Response: See, I'm blushing again. Your compliments are just too nice. I honestly hadn't meant to set up that comparison, but it wound up there just the same. It's crazy how sometimes you do things in your own writing that you don't even realize until someone else points them out to you.

I had a lot of fun with Ophelia. It almost makes me wish I could include her more in this story. I'm so glad you liked her eccentricities, and felt she was a good contrast to Minerva.

Hopefully I didn't make Sadie TOO important. I have no plans for her to come in and take Harry's place in saving the day. But yes, she does have a rather important history and place in the wizarding world.

Yes, Sadie is off to England and to people who care for her. Though a tiny little part of her is probably sad to leave NYC. It wasn't a nice place for her, but it was important.

Thanks again! These reviews are so much fun.
