Review #51, by daydream_it_to_life Chapter Two: Holdovers

8th May 2009:
Ah, so this is the William Beckett who they didn't want to send for precisely the reason he is encouraging Kate to do; meeting important people and becoming distracted. Sigh. Beckett, you just let Kate do her thing, and don't try and sidetrack her! But of course that's impossible. =] What's a story without a bit of drama? Well anyways, I love how you're describing the desert and dig sites. I've never been to any place such as Egypt, but even so, I can see these places in my mind's eye perfectly! ^.^ Bainbridge is a perv. What else can I say? XD

I'm loving this story. It's very unique, and I can't wait until the next chapter. Update soon!

Author's Response: Thanks for another review! I'm glad your still enjoying the story. I've never been to Egypt either but I've always wanted to and it's a lot of fun to write about. And yes, Beckett will be around to cause some drama. He's not to be trusted ;)

I'm already working on the next chapter so I hope to have it up soon. Thanks for the R and R!

Review #52, by RemusGal Chapter One: Money

1st May 2009:
Another great chapter. I love your descriptions of the camp, and the way you jump right into the action, with Henry's mysterious note. Of course I have no idea how the prologue and this chapter will eventually mesh, but your writing is really fresh and makes me want to read more. The clash between the intellectual pursuit of archeology and the desire of muggles and wizards to use the land for more lucrative purposes is really an interesting theme, and gives your fic some weight.

Author's Response: I *hope* over time the connection to the prologue becomes clear and important. At this point, if my very flexible outline develops close to planned, my guess is for around chapter 5, when Charlie returns. I'm really glad the story feels "weighty" and not just wordy. Thanks so much for the continued encouragement. Hope to have the next chapter up pretty soon!

Wow. You have a fantastic writing style! It's so descriptive, I can see these places in my mind, it's absolutely brilliant. I cannot WAIT for more. =) Please update soon!

Clicking the favorite button,

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm flattered you favorited it. I'm glad the descriptions are coming off well. I'm always afraid I'm giving too much or not enough. Thanks for taking the time to read and review. It means a lot.

Review #54, by siriusly_wishing Prologue: Fire

27th April 2009:
Well, this certainly has me curious! I love Charlie and stories about him, and yours is very well written so far - thank goodness you have an excellent grasp of spelling and grammar, and your style is a pleasure to read. I can't wait to see where this goes, but I'm terrible at keeping track of updated stories so sorry if it takes me a while to find new chapters! I'd love to see more soon. *hint hint* :D

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing! I'm a bit of a Charlie nut myself. He'll disappear for awhile but be back with a bang (and to stay) by chapter 5. I'm hoping to have the next chapter up by the end of the week (it's a long one, at least for me!). Thanks again so much for reading and reviewing :)

Review #55, by RemusGal Prologue: Fire

15th April 2009:
This really grabbed my interest - cool setting, nice balance of dialogue and description, and a mystery. It seemed like the hooded men want to capture the wizards, but maybe you just haven't gotten that far yet. I can't wait to see where you take the story.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reading. The motives of the attack will be revealed throughout the story. Already half done with chapter 1; hope you'll take a look when it's up. Thanks again for the R&R :)
