I seriously cannot string together a perfect sentence right now. It had taken me several tries to sort out what I am feeling before actually writing this. I first followed this story all those months ago simply because it featured Hufflepuffs, which I don't see much of it here in this site to read. Then it turned out to be one of the best story I'd ever read. It was original. It had Albus. It had humour. And of course it had June Bernard who I came to adore throughout the duration of the story. Thank you for this marvelous read, I hope that sequel comes quite soon for me to read. Report Review
I have been with this story since, I think, half-way through or around when it was in it's first ten chapters and have been in love with it since whenever I started to follow. It had gotten me very curious since reading the prologue. Your story is one of those that had interest and something to keep reading for. It had made me laugh and happy and simply in love with how you wrote James Potter. He's swimmingly one of the best written James Potter's I've read in all the years I've been reading Jily fanfiction. So yes on top of all we know about him you gave him depth. This story also made me cry several times that I knew with that amount of tear-inducing chapters that I'd be so attached to this story. Seriously, if a story makes me cry or emotionally feeling many feelings that I don't really know why I am then it's a story worth reading.
I wish I could go on but I don't want to bore you with repeating myself of how much this story is a BRILLIANT AND WONDERFUL MASTERPIECE. Yes. I think I'll go now before I start going on and fill this space with capitalized words that would most likely scare you...
THANK YOU FOR THE MARVELOUS READ! xD
-PattyAuthor's Response: Oh goodness you're so sweet! Thank you so much! I cannot even begin to explain how much all of the support my readers have given me means to me. I'm so glad you like my James too. I didn't want him to just be the lovesick boy pining after Lily, he's a PERSON and I wanted to give him a little more depth. I'm glad you liked the story, thanks SO MUCH for reading :) Report Review
You've really done justice to everything Kiwi. I love this story because I can totally feel what Adelaide is feeling about homesickness. New Zealand is home and home is where the heart is as it says in the first chapter's title. This story made laugh and realize how Kiwi I am when it come to telling people about New Zealand. And you what, I'm proud to be a Kiwi. ;)Author's Response: Oh yeah. I wrote those homesicky chapters while I was feeling homesick, so I hope they were relatable for that reason :P And you've just repeated everything I've been realising over the last few weeks - NZ is home and I'm so proud to be a Kiwi and to have been able to share that with readers :) Thanks for the reviews!

Love it as always! Can't wait to read on who is going to be selected.
Keep up the great story!Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'll try and update as soon as I can :) Report Review
Again, I like it very much. It's interesting and fun to see more of Corinne and her world. It's always great to know who the character is before jumping into the deep and heavy plots of what Corinne is about to endure. I love their friendship, Corinne's and Dom's, it's like mine although not so much hyperness for me.
Keep it up! I hope to see another chapter soon!
-PattyAuthor's Response: thanks for reviewing it made me smile :)
It's good to know you like Cor and Dom because my main goal was to make them believable.
Next chappie should be up sometime next week!

I love it. I do. It's awesome. It's funny. It's so kiwi. xD Haha. But man, I didn't expect the exchange students to be Rose and Scorpius and them both being Ravenclaw. But I like it. It's something else different from all I've read of the next gen.
Anywho, I'm still excited for another chapter, so do keep updating! =]
-PattyAuthor's Response: Thank you! I was aiming for the Kiwiness :P I've never read any Next Gen with either of them in Ravenclaw so I figured I'd do something a bit different. Thanks for the review, next chappie should be up in a week or two :) Report Review
Yikes. Just yikes... I'm actually scared of what might happen next, but also craving to read it, too. Aggy's dilemma is one full of complication that I cannot even comprehend where you're taking this character to. She's still a mystery to me as Potter is.
-Patty Report Review
I think it's great. But yes I agree, it's not the most original idea. Apart from that, though, I like it. I'd really love to read the rest of this story. I'd like to see how Corinne will cope when she sees James and Fred. I'd also would like to see their reactions on Corinne when they've realized who she is.
-PattyAuthor's Response: Thanks so much for the review!
I'm trying to make the story as original as I can, with this idea in place, so hopefully I'll succeed in that. :)
next chapter should be up next week I'm thinking!

I really like the idea of this story. It's intriguing especially how it's New Zealand. I live in New Zealand, by the way and I've got to say I'm quite excited on how this story will turn out.
-PattyAuthor's Response: Thank you! I've never come across another story set in NZ, I had to write one :P Report Review
Aww... That was so sweet. So sweet, in fact, that this was probably the best interpretation of how Teddy and Victoire got together. =]Author's Response: Oh wow. Thank you! That's very sweet of you to say. I'm glad that you enjoyed it! ^.^ --Jenna Report Review
I've always found Hugo a very minor character. He's not usually in other next gen stories I've read. Even though I'm not sure what to think of this story of Hugo, I'd say this was pretty realistic, as though Hugo was truly headed on losing his freedom. Anywho, on a brighter note, I still love your writing. It's so convincing. x]Author's Response: Totally agree. He doesn't get as much time as say James or Albus. I honestly think it's the hair. No one wants to write red-head boys. Lol.
Thank you so much for reviewing! --Jenna Report Review
That was the sweetest and most heart swooning ending I have ever read. Best Story Ever!
-PattyAuthor's Response: Thank you! You're so sweet. ^^ --Jenna Report Review
He lies to get out of his Quidditch career! That is one heck of a father! Haha. Out of the whole chappie, I loved how James couldn't get what was on the picture frame. Funny moment that is.
-PattyAuthor's Response: Aww, I'm glad that you liked it. Thank you so much for leaving a review! --Jenna Report Review
That was... so romantic and yet... so sad in the end. Oh, I hope James would be alright. Maybe, he will be, somehow. I do wish Lily had realized it wasn't Davey she had danced with. *sigh*
I really can't wait for the next!
-PattyAuthor's Response: Oh, well you know it all works out in the end. Lol. James/Lily being canon and all. :)
Who knows...Lily may surprise you.
Thank you so much for the review! --Jenna Report Review
I love it! It's so original and interesting and fantastic that I'm excited for the next chapter already! Obviously, I cannot wait for the next one now.
-PattyAuthor's Response: Thank you so much! I hope that you enjoy the rest as well. :D --Jenna Report Review
Oh my... That was bloody
That was probably the best snogging scene I've read in a long while. Your story is fantastic by the way, and I would never skip a chapter. No, I wouldn't. You write so bloody good even though I saw a few mistakes in the writing, but those doesn't effect how brilliant you have written the whole damn story. I totally cannot wait for the next chapter. And I am so, so happy Aidan's back!

I love it! I love the story! Teddy's story was 'aw' worthy and I loved reading every single sentence and word. It was so cute with Teddy and Victoire on sofa, it's nice that Teddy has a friend like her during a time of need. I was a little humoured by the overreactions of the adults towards the assumed 'disappearance' of Teddy. But it was nice to know that he had a family (including his Gran) that looked after him and cared and worried too.
I'd really like to see more of this story. I hope you update soon!
-PattyAuthor's Response: Thank you, nice to know you liked it! It's actually a collection with an one-shot for each of the next-gen kids, with possible spin-offs later on ... I hope I can update regularly :) Report Review
This is an amazing piece of writing. I love every inch of your story and it has captivated me. I really do want to see this story continue and see where it goes. Although, your story is worth the wait for another fascinating chapter.
-PattyAuthor's Response: Um...wow. Seriously. Thank you so much. I'm going to try my best to finish this, but real life has been sorta hectic. And nursing school killed my muse. T_T
I'll try and come up with a new chapter soon!

This was beautiful. I'm completely speechless and teary eyed. Too beautiful to say anything else. How you wrote Petunia, her emotions towards Lily, was perfectly written. Lovely, just lovely.
-PattyAuthor's Response: Wow, thank you! That means so much to me. I'm so happy I was able to invoke emotions, as a writer in you, as a reader. Thanks for the wonderful review! Report Review
That's so sad. How could he leave her like that? I bet he found someone else. Stupid Ravenclaw. He should have been happy with Roxanne, I mean a family is more meaningful than some random someone else. *frowns*
Anyway, I liked reading the chapter even though it made me sad. Can't wait for the next one!
-PattyAuthor's Response: Aww, actually it wasn't someone else. It was just himself. He wasn't a tied down kinda guy. Some aren't. It isn't pleasant. :(
Thank you so much for reviewing. :D --Jenna Report Review
I thought I'd never get to read this kind of story because of my picky self, but look I did read it in exactly 3 days. And I'm glad I did!
This story was very intriguing to read and I have since fallen in love with the story on the first few chapters. I really do love your characters, especially the main, Dom. She's kind of like me in way... Lorcan is simply a cutie. Holden, by the way and no offense, reminds of a car (you know that's ran down and broken or a racing car on a track...) and more likely a surname not a first name. Fred and James are thoroughly the sweetest as well as most irritating cousins ever from the way Dom describes them. Penelope is simply the best ever, she could easily be my best friend. Lily is the awesomest twelve year old, wish I was that awesome when I was her age. Dom's Roommates are complete arses although Honor Jones is way beyond that. I felt like, if I was there in Fred's party, I'd have strangled the girl before the truth serum incident. Every other character I haven't mentioned are brilliant (Although with the way Fleur acted, I wouldn't say she's brilliant...).
Every single thing in this story was well put together, I could never ask for it to be told any other way. It flowed, it gave meaning and it delivered. This last chapter was a wonderful ending and it was well executed. I can't even erase the smile of my face when Dom finally stood up to her mother and that she finally chose Lorcan.
So, all in all, excellent piece of novel fan fiction!
-Patty.Author's Response: Wow, I really love long reviews! :) I'm really glad you liked the story. (Usually whenever I see long passages like this I start to worry, "Oh, no, they didn't like the story!" Thankfully, that isn't the case!)
Thank you so much. :) Report Review
I like it. I do. I will definitely follow this story of yours. I'm quite curious of what you will write about all the next generation kids.Author's Response: Thank you so much. :D Chapter 2 is in queue now. I hope that you enjoy it as well and thank you for reviewing! --Jenna Report Review
This one-shot was lovely read. It's a nice little insight on Ron and Hermione's babysitting and their teamwork on keeping the kids in control. I really like the way you wrote the characters and how destructive the kids went. Although, they're a little helpful with a bribe or two. x]
-PattyAuthor's Response: Thanks :D Kids are always worse when you pack them together and hand them to someone without experience. They can smell fear. Lol. Thank you again for reviewing! --Jenna Report Review
How come I've never read this before? It's so sweet, and yet so sad... I have never read such a one-shot before. It's so beautifully written and I mean it.

You story is very intriguing and curious. I love they you write the four characters. They're very real. I haven't got much to say now, but I will soon enough. I can't for another chapter. =]
