This has been, and probably will be for a long time to come, my favourite story.
It's been a wild ride. I've loved every moment.
Thank you, thank you for everything, Mary McDonald.

Review #4, by dracos_hotterThe Art of Breathing.: Burn out.

22nd January 2011:
I don't think I'll stop crying for a while. Somewhere, in the back of my mind, I truly believed Mary would make a miraculous recovery. But I'm kind of glad she didn't -- it would have spoiled such a brilliant, original story to see a cliche at the end.

I love this story, I love Mary McDonald, I love you.

And yes, I am reading the sequel when it comes out!

I await the final chapter with baited breath

Author's Response: Thanks so very much Dracos hotter! Next chapter and the sequel is on it's way towards you :)

Review #5, by dracos_hotterOutnumbered: Outnumbered

23rd December 2010:
Hello there! It's bamboomei from the forums :) Sorry I'm so late, but I was sure I reviewed already :/ Stupid brain!

Things to work on:
-Ron battled giant spiders and Death Eaters. Perhaps make him a bit stronger in the face of Hermione's iron fist?
-Eesh, not every moment spent with a kid is that bad! It's a tad OOC :)

Things I like:
- It was witty :) You handled the genre really well!

-I can completely picture Hermione making a schedule :D Brilliant characterization of her!


Author's Response: o.o Riiight.

I don't really see where Hermione had an "iron fist". She was a bit bosy and weird, but she's always like that. Wasn't as though she was being cruel or demeaning. And he's her husband, he isn't going to be rude or harsh to her. As for the kids, come to my house next time I watch my relatives kids and my own. :)

Review #6, by dracos_hotterDon't Choke: Don't Choke

23rd December 2010:
Hi there! It's bamboomei from the forums, here to review your submission :) You can then edit it, if you like, and resubmit.

Things I think you need to work on are as follow:
- The tense change at the start. Perhaps it would be better to keep it all in the present tense?
-Some more background on Hayley, to make her less of a 2D character

Things I think you got spot on:
-The situation. You built it up with suspense and brilliantly so!
-The obvious flaws of Lucy. She was a flawed character and I love that :)


Author's Response: Thank you! I have edited my story, and shall put it up for validation as soon as the queue opens up. I fixed up my tense issues. I find present tense to be a bit challenging, but I found it even more challenging to write a dark horror in past tense - it lacks that in the moment thing.

And I am so happy with how I wrote Lucy. Never even considered her as a character until your challenge. Flawed characters are the best because they are more realistic. Everyone is flawed, especially me. And that is what makes us individuals.

But yes, I will definitely have this edited by the deadline :-) Unless it keeps getting rejected...

Review #7, by dracos_hotterInk: Ink

23rd December 2010:
Hello there! It's bamboomei from the forums, here to review :)

The things I think you need to work on are breathing spaces! Read the piece out loud (it helps me every time) and don't be afraid to split your paragraphs up into shorter lumps -- a stand-alone line is fine! It helps suspense and readability :)

The things I think you got right were genre and wit. Bravo! It was funny, and I liked that he was addressing the reader directly :)


Author's Response: Thanks, if I change it will you take another look before the deadline... if not that's O.k. it all adds up to experience right?!

When you gave me the ship, him talking to the audience was an idea that kind of jumped out at me and I had to write it...

Glad you enjoyed it though, I will take a look at breaking down the chunks! Thanks xxx

Review #8, by dracos_hotterThe End of the Beginning: The End of the Beginning

20th December 2010:
OHAI! It's bamboomei from the forums -- I set this task and I'm here to critique :D

Tense changes -- a bit of 'was' to 'is' won't hurt anyone, but it hinders the flow of the story. If I notice it, trust me, other people will too :)

"This is what we've been fearing for ever since the school was finished." This is a difficult sentence. 'This is what we've feared' and/or 'since the school opened' might work better?

"Instead, Godric pockets his wand and my eyes widen." That is a brilliant bit of suspense!

A brilliant response :)

Author's Response: Hello :)

Well, the tense changes are there because the story itself is told in present tense, but there are some flashback sort of things... in which she thinks back to what used to be, to things in the past. So naturally, the tense changes :P But anyway, I'll look it over again to see if there were any past tenses that should be present and the other way around.

I'll take another look at that as well. Thanks for pointing it out.
And I'm glad you liked that sentence :) Thank you!

Thank you for your review!

Review #12, by dracos_hotterChoices and Chances: The Interview

17th September 2010:
This is a wonderful story, and I'm following it avidly from this point on =)


Author's Response: Thank you! Good to see a new fan! But what is it you like about the story? Is it because it is different from other Draco / Hermione romances? That it could happen in canon? That I try to stay true to character? I am curious and would dearly live to know!

Love Pepper

Review #17, by dracos_hotterThe Art of Breathing.: Humiliation.

26th August 2010:
You make me cry and laugh. Yes, I actually cried when Mary was talking about CInderella and all that... it was just so sad =(

And then it all went lovely, and "Because he is not here and you are a mess." Is now the best line in this story =D


Author's Response: I'm going to sit here and be smug about you crying for a few seconds.

Okay I'm done. Thank you so much! I love reviews like this - it makes me feel special :)

Review #20, by dracos_hotterScorpius Malfoy's Guide to Relationships: What To Do When You Suspect Your Nemesis of Foul Play

21st August 2010:
Scorpius is not being paranoid -- but if he wants to get ahead here, he could tell Rose about his stalker.

Then I would laugh, because his stalker is funny =D


Author's Response: I guess we'll just have to wait and see what he'll choose to do soon ;) But my laptop is down so it may be a little while. Thanks for taking the time to read and review!

Ahhh. Me likey Scorpius. He's so lovely =)

But... I don't like James so much. It's always James, isn't it, the irritating one who messes everything up... Oh dear =S


Author's Response: Naah, James isn't irritating, haha. I think he's a bit too protective. I think Lucas is the one who's messing everything up XD
