OK, I've decided to take a look at this to find out a little about Thackeray.

*grins at his criticism of John Locke*

I like your introduction of the new class. It makes sense after everything that has happened.

LOVE the way Roxanne is good at the practical aspects of Transfiguration but not so much at the theory behind it. I like it when writers give that bit of depth to what students are good or bad at, rather than just choosing subjects which they are good or bad at.

*laughs at Dominique breaking two wands* Sounds like she's pretty careless.

*also laughs at his society only having about three members*

I also like the part about her reading slowly. I wonder is she dyslexic or something or just not traditionally academic. Difficulty reading at her age usually indicates some kind of difficulty though, so I'm guessing there's something up.

*laughs at Filch feeding the posters to his cat* That sounds like him.

"Nobody loses against Dumbledore"? Considering she's talking about it not being worth taking the fight on, I would have thought it would make more sense if she said "nobody wins against Dumbledore."

Author's Response: Hello! :)

I'm glad you were curious about Thackeray, and it's quite interesting to see your reactions to this story after having read Go Softly first.

Haha, I'm glad you liked the criticism of Locke - this is partly me trying to get the word out. We talked about Locke in one of my classes this year.

I'm pleased you thought it made sense! I imagined that the wizarding world would keep up a bit with the Muggle world in terms of social justice and human rights, or that students like Thackeray would begin to be more interested.

In my mind, Roxy is dyslexic and much more comfortable with visual and oral learning than reading and writing. I'm glad you liked that aspect of her character, and how it gives a reason for her to do less well in some classes.

The society really isn't very popular! I'm glad you liked the mention of Filch as well - he's a favourite mini-nemesis of the students of mine.

Good point about the sentence about losing against Dumbledore - I'll go and fix that now. :)

Thank you for the lovely review! :)
