Review #1, by moonymayhemBringing Back Moony: Bringing Back Moony

18th August 2010:
Great job! I really enjoyed this! You did a great job of making this story really ABOUT something; it wasn't just a silly one-shot for a challenge, it actually incorporated topics relavent to the book, and I totally felt as if I could place it somewhere into actual story canon. I liked your characterizations of Remus and Sirius, too. They felt realistic and true to the books, while still delving a little bit more into their personal lives/thoughts (maybe just Remus's thoughts) than we get to see in the books. Really well done :) Thanks so much for participating in my challenge!

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm glad that you enjoyed the story. :D This was probably the most challenging challenge I've gone for, so thank you for making such a great idea. :D --Jenna

Review #2, by moonymayhemAlmost Oblivious: Dreams

18th August 2010:
Ooooh so intriguing! I really liked this (but I may be a little biased because I'm mildly obsessed with Bellatrix...). Your descriptions were fantastic--I love the way you wrote out the whole intro; that's definitely what goes on in Bellatrix's crazy, mad, lunatic, psychopath mind. You brought us into her thoughts extremely well. Great job! And thanks so much for participating in my challenge!!

Author's Response: Thanks for this review :) It's the first one I gotten... guess I didn't do all that well because no one seems to want to comment. Anyway, Bellatrix obsessions? Never heard of that one! You must be truly unique! Glad you think I brought you into her mind very well. I was worried about this, because I'm not used to writing evil people. This challenge was definitely a challenge for me, but I had so much fun with it! ~writergirl8

Review #3, by moonymayhemKnock on Wood: Knock on Wood

18th August 2010:
Aw, Oliver :P How cute! You did a nice job of creating a sort of parallel/symoblism-type thing with the quaffle and the goal, and their relationship. Subtle; good job! It did feel like a dream, with the slowly growing boos toward the end, and you did a good job of making Quidditch an allegory for Wood's life--as it probably would be, as I'm sure all the guy thinks about is Quidditch. Nicely done, and thanks so much for participating in my challenge :)

Author's Response: thanks a lot for the great challenge. :)
I'm glad you liked the symbolism!

Review #4, by moonymayhemDreamer: Dreamer

18th August 2010:
I love how Scorpius is this weird flutist in this story! Sometimes it can get a bit old to continously see him as this studly guy, so I like that you created a unique character. You incorporated the fairy tales very well, and added nice little bits to all of them (the evil witch Celestina Warbeck...hahahaha). And you make a good point at the beginning--who wouldn't fall asleep in Histoy of Magic?! Nicely done :) Thanks so much for participating in my challenge!

Author's Response: Hello there! Ha ha, thanks. I like making characters rather unique or different from the norm, but I might have let my imagination get the best of me this time. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, though, so I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Hehe. Thanks. I know I certainly would have fallen asleep in History of Magic. I'm certainly pleased that you enjoyed this so thoroughly.

Review #5, by moonymayhemThe Dream and the Werewolf: The Dream and the Werewolf

18th August 2010:
Very cute! The story felt very dream-like at the beginning, with her repeating the tripping movement and the changing of her hair. And the end was really sweet. I think you could've expanded a bit more on it, because you created an interesting premise. Also, remember that Tonks's name has an S at the end; it's not Tonk :P

Well done! Thanks for participating in my challenge :D

Review #6, by moonymayhemStill Delicate: Arrogance

11th August 2010:
Gaaah worst cliffhanger ever!! By worst I of course mean best, but because it's the best, it's really the worst for us readers. ...If that makes any sense. But great chapter nonetheless. I'm so glad you're back! I'm sorry to hear that so much has come up in your life recently, but I'm glad to see that things have cleared up enough that you're able to write again. Fabulous job, can't wait for the next update :)

Review #7, by moonymayhemRed Snow Falling: Prologue

6th July 2010:
Yikes! She's preggers! My thoughts kept changing as I read first I totally thought it was going to be one of those stories where the girl's just like longing obnoxiously after the boy the entire time, and believe me when I say I was very happy to discover it wasn't. Then I kept thinking to myself that I wish that you'd shown us the details of James and Veronica's growing relationship. But THEN they did the deed and of course...she's pregs! Aaaahhh I can't wait to see where it goes. I'm definitely looking forward to the next update :) Nicely done!!

Author's Response: OMG, I am so sorry I haven't replied to this yet! I actually replied ages ago, but something must have failed when I submitted it, because here your review is sitting on the unanswered page! So, very very sorry again, I haven't been leaving you hanging on purpose!!

I'm glad you mentioned that this isn't one of those stories where the girl pines after some guy only to discover he's liked her all along. I'm actually looking to do the complete opposite with this story - to chronicle to decline of a love affair rather than the rise of one. Thats why the events in this chapter seem rushed - why you don't get to see the details of their relationship growing. This is just setting things up for the story itself. Veronica's pregnancy will of course play a huge role in the story, but as for where all this is going, I'm keeping mum!

Thanks for the lovely review! I'm afraird there aren't going to be updates any time soon, but I hope when I'm able to continue on with it you will still be around to read it!

Review #8, by moonymayhemFleur de Lys: TÍte-ŗ-tÍte

5th July 2010:
I'm really interested to see where this goes. I can't say much yet, but you've said that you haven't quite gotten into the plot yet. I like that you've used the shoes as a bit of a motif. Perhaps when Bill becomes more of a figure in her life, she won't need the companionship of her shoes anymore? ^^ Nicely done. I really wish I had more to say, but all I can really do is encourage you to update soon! I can't wait till you get further invested into the plot. Will there be any Voldy? Or will it just be purely about their relationship/getting to know you/etc?

Great work!

Author's Response: Aw, thank you, I'm glad that you are. Yeah, in the next chapters, I'll be introducing new characters and there will be more of Bill. Yeah, I just picture Fleur as someone who loves shoes. Haha, well, I don't think she'll ever stop buying expensive shoes, even if she has a man in her life. It's okay, I'm just glad that you liked this. Hmm.. I don't think so because I wrote this as a light-hearted fic and if I added him into the mix it'd be kind of heavy. But, yes, the story will be how I picture Fleur and Bill ended up together.

Thank you for reading and reviewing! :)

Review #9, by moonymayhemLucy and Lysander's Bucket List: Thirteen Hours

2nd July 2010:
That was so adorable. I absolutely loved it. I love the image of Lucy and Lysander both thinking that they didn't live up to their crazy families, and then going and doing this. I loved their way of being remembered--it wasn't something obnoxious and in-your-face, it was quiet, and very fitting to their characters, and a great visual.

The story was so sweet, and also such a great concept for a one-shot. It was cute, but it had meaning, too. It was incredibly sweet but actually meant something with regard to the characters, and was a really poignant, albeit brief, look into their lives. Wonderful work! Can I say it again? I loved it :)

Author's Response: Thanks! This is by far the pleasant-est thing I've written recently and I'm glad its not just meaningless fluff. I was worried I was overdoing the cheese√ʬĬ¶.haha.

Review #10, by moonymayhemA Tale of Felix Felicis: Of Potions, First Years and Dungbombs

29th June 2010:
I couldn't say it better myself--brilliant! Great work. I like your nonchalant, laid-back characterisation of the two marauder's we've met thus far. (They're far less annoying than how most people write them ^^). A few favourite lines.

"You are a blasphemy against your namesake."
"A star?"
"No, you twat, seriousness."
--I laughed out loud at that one. Actually. I can't get enough of the Sirius-serious jokes, I think I have some sort of problem.

He's a doll, Padfoot is.

Quite a doll. Can't wait to continue this. Lovely intro into the boys' lives. I don't read a lot of marauder stuff because it tends to just depress the heck out of me, but I have a feeling this may not do that, so I figure I'll give it a shot. Well done!

Oh--and the squid rides!!! Bahahaha. Why hasn't anyone thought of that before? Absolutely brilliant. Such a fantastic image. I want a squid ride :P

Review #11, by moonymayhemImpossibly Charming: Impossibly Charming

29th June 2010:
Oh gosh! I really liked Rose's borderline insanity. Much more realistic than many of the Rose's out there. You make a great point, inheriting Hermione's value of schoolwork above life and Ron's insane temper cannot equal a normal, level-headed individual! Hahaha. Well done :) I'm also wondering...who's the guy you've got in your banner? :P

Author's Response: Thank you so much!! Hahaha, wow, if my Rose is semi-realistic, what must the other Roses be like? But yeah, there's no way that poor child turned out normal. Genetics simply won't allow for it. The guy in the banner is Ed Speelers (from 'Eragon'). I think he makes a pretty good Scorpius.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review!!

Review #12, by moonymayhemSparkle: Sparkle

29th June 2010:
Wow, that was really nice :) I liked how you grappled with James/Lily vs. Sirius/Lily. Too often people just sort of throw in some torrid affair between Sirius and Lily, but we all know Sirius wouldn't do that to his best friend! You realistically expressed his contradicting feelings for Lily and James, and in the end he made the right (and realistic) decision. And the hello isn't a goodbye, it's a hello to their new lives ;) Very sweet, very well done, great job!

Author's Response: I'm really glad you noticed the tension. All too often, I read a Sirius/Lily where, like you said, it's just some unthinking, passionate hookup or something, you know? And I felt that didn't do justice to the characters at all because Sirius is so much deeper than that. Thank you for commenting on that because I worked really hard on that aspect of the story.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review, dear. It means alot. And I'm very happy you enjoyed it :)

Review #13, by moonymayhemPrince: Prince

28th June 2010:
That was so sweet! I really think you should consider expanding this into a longer story, as it's quite a clever idea, and I like the AU you've created. I'm considering writing a Draco/Astoria fic or one-shot, so I've been reading quite a few, and I think this one was done particularly well. I really like this Victorian setting a lot! Well done :)

Author's Response: A longer story? Well I never really thought about was kind of just a random inspiration that hit me. I'll consider it though, thanks for the suggestion.

You should definitely write one! They're really fun because you get to explore a different side of Draco, or at least how he found that different side, you know? I hope mine has helped you with your prep to write your own :)

I'm glad to hear you liked the story - thank you for reading and reviewing. Every review means a lot!

Review #14, by moonymayhemFlavor of the Month: In Which Love is Confessed, Snape Has the Giggles, Fights Break Out, and Percy Eavesdrops

23rd June 2010:
That was certainly a dramatic chapter! Haha. I loved that Kenna called Riley a "personal alarm clock". Such a funny image :D I must admit, Marcus's confession was a But you're right, it'll certainly make the Quidditch match very interesting. I can't wait to see what happens. Must continue! Great work x)

Author's Response: Haha, it was, wasn't it? Heh, I'm glad you liked that bit. It IS disturbing. If something like that happened to me, I would react exactly like Ollie did. However, I know that if it happened to anyone else, I'd be laughing like a loon. Plus, the potential for more drama is irresistible! I'm quite glad you liked it, and thanks for your review!

Review #15, by moonymayhemVanilla Spice: Veil

22nd June 2010:
Oh god! Ooohhh goddd. Well, I certainly saw none of that coming. At all. And a lot happened in this chapter, so well done in terms of not writing filler-ness and giving us lots to look forward to! But...Freddie! How evil. How cruel. I can't wait to see his explanation. Though I can't blame him, with all the flirting Mollie does wtih James... This is a really random review that probably makes no sense but I'm just so shocked! My jaw actually dropped hahaha. Poor Mollie. I also like that you've added in Rebecca's engagement, weddings always add a bit of drama! And this New Year's certainly isn't over yet... Can't wait to see what happens next! This chapter was definitely worth the wait ;)

Review #16, by moonymayhemConventional Wisdom: Three Months Later

22nd June 2010:
Oh thank goodness the dreadful Sophie is gone forever! But I do wish you'd explained a little how the two ended up together in those three months. ...Sequel, perhaps? Hint, hint ;) And I'm not going to lie, as much as we all dislike Sophie, it's hard not to feel bad for someone in her shoes, if her husband-to-be ran away and ditched her for his baby mama... But of course it had to happen!

All in all, really well done. This story is really great and I hope you're really proud of it and happy with the way it turned out. It was very sweet and I really enjoyed following it. It was a great read. Fantastically well done and I look forward to seeing what else you might come up with in the near future!

Review #17, by moonymayhemConventional Wisdom: Sweating Bullets

22nd June 2010:
Eeee!! I don't even know what to write. Honestly. First, I was so happy that Mara was finally having something nice happen to her--though I wish we'd gotten to see more, at the very least we knew her date with Patrick was more than pleasant. But this moment with James...and the James and Jack moment...oh I want to cry now! Haha. But this means that you've succeeded in your efforts to evoke a reaction from your readers--or at the very least, me. But I can't imagine that I'm the only one! Also I must admit that I'm quite enjoying the serious lack of Sophie that we've been experiencing lately...she was getting quite on my nerves :P Well done!

Review #18, by moonymayhemConventional Wisdom: Toeing The Line

21st June 2010:
Yikes, toeing the line they certainly were! Nice work! I love your descriptions. I feel like I really have a great sense of everyone's tones--and what their tone says about their emotions--because you're so descriptive with everything that happens. Great chapter, as usual! I can't wait to keep reading...

Review #19, by moonymayhemLetters to Mum: Letters to Mum

17th June 2010:
That was quite possibly one of the saddest things I've ever read. But it was practically perfect. You really captured Fred's voice in that last letter, and did such a good job balancing humour with seriousness in such a Fred-like way. Well done! I also really liked the premise, and found it a very original way to address Molly's closure over her son's death. I'm partaking in the One Sentence Challenge as well, and I had a lot of trouble working my entry out. You did a great job! I really enjoyed it.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the lovely review, if I find some time soon I will take a look at yours as well!

Review #20, by moonymayhemWinner Takes All: Why Should I Complain?

4th June 2010:
"If any Violets or Irises come along, Iíll be sure to warn them."

Heehee ^^ And what a git! Scorpius, that is. And Lily. They're all gits together. At least she's got Al on her side. And everyone else, actually. So it'll just be a matter of time I suppose ;) Great work!

Author's Response: There's definitely an imbalance between those for and against the match. XD Scorpius and Lily are so conceited that they can't see anything beyond themselves.

Thanks very much for reading and reviewing! ^_^

This story is in my favourites but I realised I've never reviewed it! What's wrong with me. I love the way you've weaved in the flashbacks so seamlessly. And I love Rose's inner dillemma. She's so's so sweet! :)

Author's Response: Thanks for coming to review! It means just as much to see this story favourited. :D It's fantastic that you're enjoying the story!

Review #22, by moonymayhemPirates of Gryffindor Tower: A Cake Must Be Baked

4th June 2010:
I'm going to be honest, I wasn't quite sure what was going on throughout that entire story, but it was hilarious nonetheless. I especially liked Molly's strange, drunken inner monologue. It felt quite realistic ;) Anyways, great work. I've gone on a bit of a reviewing spree across several of your fics, I hope you're okay with that... I'm loving your one-shots!

Author's Response: Oh well, if we're doing honesty I wasn't quite sure what was going on either! Just one of those things where I write what amuses me and tend to get a bit carried away :P Good to know you liked it though!
Of COURSE I'm okay with you reviewing everything, if only everyone had that same attitude, me included I suppose -hides-

Thanks for another amazing reviewing!

Review #23, by moonymayhemMonday, Monday: Stand By Me

3rd June 2010:
Eep, I fear I haven't checked this story in quite some time. So sorry! I love the way Louis talks, though, it gets me every time. His little half sentences...too funny. Anyways, great work, as usual. Maybe we can get a little more of sad/mopey Louis in the next chapter? That would be lovely. I like his mood swings. Some favourite quotes:

"Like Dom could talk about being a narcissist anyway. Bitch."

"Certain familial elements (i.e. Maman) decided, when young, that would be a useful life skill to have when not young. "

I also quite liked imagining him checking his watch in a "debonair" style, hahaha. Also, I'm sure you've been asked this a dozen times, but I fear I must ask again: who's the bloke you're using for Louis in the banner?

Graet work! Update soon! :D

Author's Response: Eep as well! That's way too much fun to write. Don't be ridiculous you silly, I haven't updated this in quite some time!
Ooh sad/mopey Louis could be fun. I'm not nearly as comfortable writing it to be sure, but would mean some truly epic mood swings which can't really go wrong with!

Bahahaha that second line IS good. Man, I'm way too funny :P

As for debonair style, it's all in the wrist - just a little flick, defs give it a whirl.
As for the young gentleman on the banner (I'd say it would be almost a dozen, although not quite,) his name is Dimitri Vankerkoven. I think. Spelling is something like that anyway.

SHALL DO MY BEST! Have given up on promising anything though :P

Review #24, by moonymayhemFlavor of the Month: In Which Kenna is Cornered and Percy Makes Another Bet

3rd June 2010:
Moaning Myrtle was perfect! I loved Kenna's inner monologue about worrying about Oliver ravishing her. I loved Kenna's entire inner monologue, to be honest. Her characterisation is great. She's so hilarious, as is the dynamic between her and Oliver. And the dynamic between everyone and everyone, honestly. Great work! Can't wait to keep reading.

Author's Response: Haha, thank you! Any time I write about Oliver ravishing, I enjoy myself immensely, and I'm glad you did, too! Thanks for all of the compliments and for taking the time to review!

Review #25, by moonymayhemFlavor of the Month: In Which Oliver Narrates, Kenna Rants, and New Rules are Instated

1st June 2010:
I loved loved loved loved Ollie's commentary. So funny. I hope there's more to come. He's slightly more neurotic than Kenna. His side of the story is an interesting explains quite a bit to see the way he thinks ;) Anyways, great chapter again. I'm really enjoying this story! Can't wait to read more xD

Author's Response: Really? Thanks so much! The sequel *plugs shamelessly* is written from his POV (with a few bits of Kenna input down the line), so if you want more, I'd suggest heading over there. :)

And he's only neurotic because Kenna makes him that way. He WAS normal.and then he met her. :P But really, I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much, and I hope you like the rest of the chapters just as well. Thanks a lot for reviewing!
