Review #1, by EnigmaticEyes16Truth, Dare or Drink!: Truth, Dare or Drink!

30th July 2016:
Hi Alexis! Nix here for the Slytherin Review Tag! When I saw this title browsing through your stories, I thought for sure I must have read and reviewed it already but I surprisingly had not, so I just had to remedy that!

I loved this story! Even though I thought it was kind of rude of Harry and Ron to just write off Hermione after all the times she saved their butts, that was a low blow really. But I understand that Ron had to be removed from the picture somehow. And I could totally see him going for one of Fleur's cousins, since he obviously couldn't have Fleur, and Gabrielle was much too young. Plus, I've always loved me some Fred and George so I am definitely not complaining here for a lack of Ron. I was however kind of saddened that the story ended without Hermione finding a horcrux located at Hogwarts, since you start the story saying that she's determined to find it.

But I did enjoy reading about Hermione letting go of all her burdens for a day and having fun with the twins from the snowball fight to the game played in front of the fireplace. Speaking of the game, I loved the banter back and forth between the twins and Hermione and the kissing scenes. Sadly though, this story ended much too soon. I would have loved to see it continue with this new line of concoctions but of course that would never have been allowed on this site. I apologize for being such Weasley twins/Hermione trash.

But all in all this was a great little story and I'm so happy I read it. I must also say I thought you wrote Fred and George very well with the consistent finishing of sentences and saying things at the same time. It was a such a fun story to read!

Review #2, by EnigmaticEyes16(Who) Needs Horcruxes?: Legend

25th July 2016:
Hi, Karen! Sorry, I'm super late but I'm finally here for the Slytherin Hot Seat! And I can't believe I haven't read this sooner, since it involves Doctor Who. But I'm here now!

Anyway, I love how you set this up with the intro! The Dark Lord needs to protect himself if Harry and his friends know about the horcruxes, and I think it's very curious that he would come across such an old piece of parchment that mentions enough about the Doctor to become interested in him. Of course, owning the Elder Wand, if there is something more powerful than that, he would gladly have it, and do whatever it takes to make that happen. And even more so, the idea of regenerating must interest him even more, with him wanting to live forever and all. I'm very curious to see what will happen once the Doctor and Voldemort finally meet.

The intro to Clara and the Doctor is quite hilarious. I love the idea of the Doctor trying to solve a rubik's cube upside down. Though I found it odd he'd be perusing the internet and come across such an article. I also found it weird and out of character for him to call Clara "my dear". Especially if this is the 11th Doctor, which is sounds like it is, but I'm not sure. And I really didn't like how he used wibbly-wobbly and timey-whimey so much, that also seemed a bit a out of character, the way he used it. But other than that I thought Clara and the Doctor were pretty spot on. I think it's also super interesting that you kept JKR's work as a piece of fiction, so they are actually in the book, and become part of the story. Although this legend they need to find out, sounds like the legend is them, since Voldemort found a parchment mentioning the legend of the Doctor... so that will be even more interesting. Can't wait to see what happens in the next chapter once they leave the safety of the TARDIS!

Great first chapter, Karen!

Review #3, by EnigmaticEyes16Crush: Crush

22nd May 2016:
Hi Gabbie! I saw your status and thought I'd come check this out, as I always have a soft spot for the twins! This story starts off so cute! I think it's interesting that your Fred is so closed off from having feelings for other people. And the conversation with George where he accuses him of treating girls like toys, when in fact Fred is the one who wishes they wouldn't treat him like a toy. It's very intriguing, I'd like to see where this feeling is coming from. Did someone perhaps ever treat him like a toy?

Although, it was so sweet seeing him have a little hope at the love letter. And actually develop feelings for someone. I wanted so badly for the letter to be for him, but sadly it was not meant to be. And poor George, following around Angelina because he's in love with her but unable to tell her so even though she clearly loves him back. That must terrible every day to be so close to something you want without being able to have it. But of course, they do eventually get together because we do see them in the A Force of Wills timeline.

And speaking of A Force of Wills, I loved the little insert with Astoria. I thought it was so cool of Alicia to help out the young Slytherin girl after seeing Malfoy and his friends bully her numerous times. I really need to get back to that story when I get a chance.

This group of Gryffindors is so interesting though! Katie loves Oliver and is best friends with Lee. Angelina and George are always together but haven't gotten together yet. And Alicia is in love with Lee but he doesn't notice her. Fred wasn't in love with anyone until he got a little bit of hope. I wonder who Lee is interested though, if he's interested in anyone. Hmm...

I really enjoyed this one-shot! Although I did notice a couple inconsistencies: one, in the beginning and later on you mention the note was found in Potions textbook, but inbetween that, you mention Fred found it in a Transfiguration notebook. And then when they are hiding in the closet together, you repeat the same sentence twice "He was starting to get nervous."

Also, the closet scene! That was so cute between them. Again, I really wanted Alicia to want him back and I feel very sad now knowing that she didn't. I thought it was sweet though that he asked her to come to him if she ever changed her mind about Lee. Of course, it's not always that easy, and she may never see him that way, but I thought it was a very bittersweet note to end on.

Anyway, wonderful story! Hopefully I will be able to be back soon and read and review some other things!

Review #4, by EnigmaticEyes16At Least Once : I Had To Do It

21st May 2016:
Hey Meg! I'm here for our swap! Browsing through your stories, I'd thought for sure I'd reviewed this one but it seems I haven't so, I figured I'd check this one out for now. There's so many on your page I want to read!

I personally adore Dramione so I'm already excited about this, but I love how you open it up. I love that Draco both hates Hermione and is attracted to her at the same time. And this attraction installs more hate because she's obviously something he can't have. Of course, his father would probably blow a gasket if he ever learned Draco had feelings for a muggle-born, especially Hermione. But it also makes sense that he would find her attractive because of her brilliance, and kindness, and strong-willed-ness...

It's also interesting that this would take place during the time Hermione is dealing with her unrequited love for Ron because he's busy with Lavender. I'm not surprised Draco considers her pain a comfort, but it's for a different reason than I'd originally thought. At first, I thought maybe he'd enjoyed her suffering because she's the one making him suffer, but no. Of course, he's also suffering because the task Voldemort has given him.

Of course, he's so used to insulting her that he'd automatically do so once he realized he'd been caught staring. But ack! He stops her from leaving! And then teases her and follows her out! I am surprised she's decided to indulge him though and hear him out.

I love how he toys with her and goes back in forth. Wanting to just end the conversation but at the same time, not wanting to let her leave without knowing that she deserves better. I also love that in the classroom he just goes against his inhibitions and just goes for it, goes right up to her and then kisses her. And she kissed him back! Of course, she may have only done it out of anger for Weasley but still.

I especially loved the ending. How he says he had to do it at least once and she softens for a moment and merely tells him to never do it again. And then they go back to name calling as usual. But I especially like how it began and ended with a slap, and that now that he'd gotten what he wanted, he reprimands himself in way, like a parent would, saying "That's enough now." I thought it was a really great way to end the story.

As a whole, I very much enjoyed this and I'm glad I finally read it! Thanks so much for doing this swap with me! I am definitely going to have to come back though because there are some other stories on your page I really want to read when I get a chance!

Review #5, by EnigmaticEyes16Not Normal: {Chapter the First}

13th May 2016:
Hello 800! I'm here again for the Slytherin Hot Seat! I can't believe I hadn't started reading this yet! Main characters able to see ghosts is totally up my alley, and I'm very curious as to what the Founders could expect a single girl to do to save the Wizarding World.

Anyway, first thing's first, I love how you've introduced Ellie, with her just blurting out that she can see dead people. And that she's not crazy. And how you immediately go into a flashback of how this all started. And I like how she just instantly accepted meeting her dead great grandmother, but she is five so like she says, she really hasn't grasped the concept of death yet.

And it's very sad that her and Chris have lost their mother, and partly their father since he seems so very head up in the clouds and forgetful. I do wonder if he actually remembered the cake or not, since there has yet to actually be cake.

Albus on the other hand is quite interesting. It seems very much like he's half taunting Ellie and half flirting with her, but she's clearly oblivious to that. I wonder what he was going to say though before Chris burst in with his broomstick and interrupted. I certainly can't wait to see more of Albus, he seems like a very intriguing character, and very different from how I've seen him portrayed anywhere else. Actually he seems more like I'd imagine his brother James, but that's just my opinion. I'm perfectly happy to continue reading about a very attractive and mischievous Albus Potter.

Rose also seems interesting. But we never got to find out what color the cute shop guy's hair was. Was it actually purple? Madame Cassandra? Is it weird that this psychic has the same name as Trelawney's ancestor? And sounds very much like Trelawney herself? Hmm... and what could her predictions mean? Well, I guess we know what they mean, but we don't really know yet what Ellie is in store for.

And she can sense when there's cake? That's amazing. But did she sense it when she was in the house earlier and they were asking their father about the cake? Why wasn't this mentioned then?

So many questions! Anyway, I love this story and Ellie, I think she's quite amusing to read and I'm very curious to see where this is going, so don't worry, I will be back to read on!

Great first chapter!

Author's Response: Spoiler alert: the Founders always expect too much of people. Ellie is in for a wild ride this year!

Even for a five-year-old, Ellie is a little strange. But it's part of who she is that she just accepts this as fact. She is supposed to be a little zany and awkward.

There's more on Ellie and Chris' family life to come. It's true that they've sort of lost their father as well, and that has repercussions on them both.

Albus' is definitely flirting! Except his idea of flirting is that of a ten-year-old :P I think in light of that, Ellie can be forgiven for missing that cue. Haha, I'm glad you're happy to continue to read a mischievous and attractive Albus Potter! I'm happy to continue writing him!

It is weird that Madam Cassandra shares the name of a famous prophetess O.o OR IS IT?! O.O What COULD her predictions mean, indeed...

Ellie's cake sense shall make more appearances, I promise. It's a pretty amazing talent, to be honest. I'd rather be able to sense cake than see dead people.

Thanks for the lovely review, Nix. I'm very happy that you're enjoying the story so far :D

Review #6, by EnigmaticEyes16Remember Me Not: ~*~

6th May 2016:
Hi, I'm here for the Slytherin Hot Seat!

800, this story was so precious! And really sad. And I'm surprised I am just reading it now. I adore Fred and the fact that he only wants to see his family happy and to see them remember him alive and happy as well. Of course he doesn't want them to remember his as dead because that makes him sad, and that's just so unlike Fred.

I loved each individual bit for each sibling. I loved that Bill stayed up late and taught his little brother who caught him sneaking out a bunch of new things instead of leaving him to snog a girl. I loved that Fred would listen to Charlie forever about dragons, and that he sent Fred letters every one when he left. And Percy! I loved the bit about Percy making a joke and Fred laughing. I love that Fred was so proud of Percy for coming back and for achieving the greatness he worked for. By the time I got to George I wanted to cry. Poor George has to go on without his twin, his best friend, his other half and that is the saddest bit of all. Ron's bit also made me want to cry. I love that Ron grew up always feeling like the odd one out, the unloved one, but in fact Fred loved him the most and Fred knew he was the bravest and strongest of all of them. And little Ginny! I wouldn't say she defeated the Dark Lord, considering she was unconscious. But she did survive and came back to them and that definitely counts for something. She did grow up to be a strong, and fierce woman and I'm sure Fred knows he had something to do with that.

All in all I thought this was the sweetest and saddest story ever. But still happy. Because in the end his family was happy, even though they'd always miss him, and that made him happy.

Great one-shot, 800!


Author's Response: Hey, Nix! Thanks for dropping by!

Thanks so much for the wonderful review! This story was meant to be both sad and happy at the same time, so I'm pleased that you found it to be so.

Review #7, by EnigmaticEyes16Evolution: Another Run-In

4th May 2016:
Nix here again for the Sitewide Hot Seat!

Oh, James and Lily have their first encounter! And James isn't being his usual smug self! That's a good start. Maybe Sirius did him a favor pushing him into Lily, even if he doesn't know it.

I wonder what Lily is thinking during that very awkward silence between them. And what she thinks of James being nice to her. I'm very curious to continue reading this story to see how it all plays out even though this will be last Hot Seat review.

All in all, I think you have a great story going here! Great job!


Author's Response: Howdy Nix!'s only taken me 10 months to arrive, but here I am - and thank you for this kind review.

While I go through edits of this story, this is one bit I'm fairly confident will be left absolutely the same because I love each of their roles in it. Sirius as mischievous antagonist in the James/Lily dynamic, James trying hard to be good and to defuse the situation afterward, and Lily initially thinking the worst of him.

Lily's thoughts on the way to class I think could best be summed up in this way: (1) James Potter was actually not a prat and (2) WAS he actually not a prat or is there another shoe left to drop? She definitely still doesn't trust him much yet, but finds she has nothing to bark at him about and James wants to keep the peace, so on they wander :P

Thanks for reviewing!

Review #8, by EnigmaticEyes16Evolution: Hogwarts Bound

3rd May 2016:
Hello! I am back again for the Sitewide Hot Seat!

Yay! We're finally on our way back to Hogsmeade! I was super excited to finally meet Lily's friends. Although it sounds like Petunia is a right brat, keeping her sister from going to France with her friends. I wonder though what happened when Lily delivered her letter Severus? Seems she's cut her ties with him though if she's already worrying about finding a new potions partner. I wonder who it will be? Better yet, I wonder if it will be James?

And now we have James and the other Marauders! I like how James completely zones out on Sirius' speech because Lily caught his eye. But at the same time I'm not exactly sure he's doing the best job of following his father's advice. But I suppose, when you're a sixteen year old male, maturity takes time. At least it's his long-term goal, right? And no one said he couldn't date other girls while he works to earn Lily's approval. And Remus wants to be more sociable and also get a date or two! That's so cute! And Peter wants to come up with and execute his own prank all by himself!? I'm very curious to see how that turns out!

All in all, I thought this was a great chapter and that the characters are really developing. I can't wait to see what happens once they arrive at Hogwarts!


Author's Response: Huzzah "Train to Hogwarts" chapter!

Petunia's pretty messed up, absolutely, which we'll see more of later, but yes the Lily and Severus friendship has been terminated and the fallout from that will continue to be seen in glimpses (more from Snape's perspective until edits) going forward.

Haha, ogling witches probably isn't the best way to follow his father's advice is it? But he is a red-blooded wizard of 16-ish and so I felt that there was an element of that that was GOING to happen...and I wanted to make clear that his summer-long interest is actually coupled with physical attraction too. I'm glad you liked the other guys' goals - we'll see how you like each of them going forward.

Thanks again!

Review #9, by EnigmaticEyes16Evolution: Words of Wisdom

3rd May 2016:
Nix again! Here for the Sitewide Hot Seat!

This was an interesting chapter! I loved seeing the interaction between James and his father! I love that his father had such an interesting tidbit of information to get him started on the right path.

Lily must have really gotten under his skin if he felt the need to go to his father for advice. I like that he was able to have this sort of conversation with his father. It's clear that the Potters might be a very understanding, forward-thinking kind of couple and I'm very intrigued to know more about them!

And maybe it will work and maybe it won't, but I'm curious to see how James progresses into a more mature adult after receiving this information.

Another wonderful chapter!

Author's Response: Haha Francis (AKA Fleamont...UGH) was to feature so much more prominently (and still will after edits), but I'm glad you liked him here as well as the dynamic. It's written a lot that James was spoiled and I wanted to preserve that post-canon tidbit because I do believe it's probably true, but I also wanted to cultivate a much more different dynamic in association with the spoiling than we see with Lucius and Draco for example as for James to have become the way he became, his parents had to spoil him a bit with permissiveness, but be loving and interested in HIM enough as their son to develop a special connection. Plus, I feel like they had to be more progressive for James to go the way he did - maybe that's not true, but it's the way I've always seen it.

Re: James's progression, while I'm not as dissatisfied with it as Lily's early-middle representation, I am actually somewhat dissatisfied with it because I think it comes a bit too easily for him. The two may go somewhat hand-in-hand, but in flipping the perception of James Potter, I think Lily got a little overly negatived in that portion, while James didn't enjoy enough struggle (but again, that's what edits are for, right?).

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review #10, by EnigmaticEyes16Evolution: The End of the Line

3rd May 2016:
Hello again! I am here again for the Sitewide Hot Seat!

I'm super excited for the switching of POVs, I think it's a great touch to this story. Lily's POV was also very interesting to read. Of course, she hasn't spent the summer worrying about James Potter, she's spent it worrying about Severus, and what she should say to him, and, of course, what kind of person he's coming.

It's understandable that even after so many years of being such close friends, Lily and Severus are not the same kids they used to be. Severus especially has grown darker and darker, absorbing himself in books on Dark Magic and becoming friends with Slytherins who share the same interest.

I think him calling Lily a mudblood was simply the second shoe finally dropping for Lily. If their friendship isn't enough to keep him from directing that hate on his best friend, then how can they be friends in the end?

I wonder how Severus will respond when she delivers it to him. I'm very curious to see what happens next. Especially now that they are about to return to Hogwarts soon.

Great chapter!

Author's Response: of the few chapters where I like the early Lily I wrote :P

I would roll on with a more detailed response, but you've pretty well hit the nail on the head as far as my thoughts about the the Snape and Lily dynamic and the real reason their friendship went terminal from that point.

Thanks again for the R&R!

Review #11, by EnigmaticEyes16Evolution: Ain't No Sunshine

3rd May 2016:
Hi! I'm here to give some last minute reviews for the Sitewide Hot Seat! I think I've read some of your other stories before, but this one caught my eye, which is surprising because I don't often read Jilys, but I'm curious to see your interpretation of them.

I really enjoyed this first chapter. I very intrigued to know what exactly went on in May after the incident we see in Snape's Worst Memory. But clearly it was not a win for either boy...

I also like how he's not obsessed with Lily like most people's headcanon of him. He's clearly a bit fond of her maybe, but he's not falling over himself because of her. I also really enjoyed the added touch about how he AND Sirius like to ask Lily out (but as a joke) constantly in order to annoy her.

I think your headcanon of Lily is also interesting. She seems a bit like Hermione as she's constantly got her nose in a book, and is always spending time in the library or common room studying. Plus, she seems to be quite the stickler for the rules.

It's already becoming very clear that these two are opposites but a spark's already ignited as James can't seem to keep Lily off his mind. I'm very curious to see how this plays out, and I'm glad you plan on taking your time with it, instead of rushing these two very different people together too quickly.

I'm also very curious about why James was asking Tinka about what his dad does in his study. That seemed very out of place in this particular chapter but I'm sure we'll soon find out more as we are introduced to James' parents in the story.

Great first chapter! I'll be checking out the next one soon!


Author's Response: Howdy Nix! Sorry for taking so long, but here I am.

I am really glad when I hear from people who appreciate the different take on James's feelings about Lily. Generally the feedback has been good here, but I've gotten plenty of flak for how it's played out from some corners because of some of JKR's interview comments about that - nevertheless, I press on undeterred in my belief that James Potter was not completely sappy in love with Lily Evans because I remain steadfast in believing that James Potter, contrary to popular belief, wasn't all that bothered with dating before he was a bit older than many others become more deeply invested in it. Though you'll see he has a certain reputation, you'll also see some controversy about that behind the scenes and I hope you'll be interested to find out the TRUTH about JP1.

As far as Lily herself goes...I'll be honest and say that whatever others remark, I'm really not satisfied with her treatment or development after the first several chapters until much later in the story. The early parts got too James-centric in some regards and I think that weakened some of the development of her character that I intended to do - it's something I hope to come back to because while I do believe what you've taken from her is true about her (especially the stickler for the rules bit), I think the former winds up a bit overdone as does the emphasis on the Lily and James dynamic despite the slow burn.

That question to Tinka is, I promise, not a throwaway line :P Though it doesn't all get developed as well as I'd like either at this point, it is (sort of) a delayed segue.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Review #12, by EnigmaticEyes16A Tale of Three Children: Muggle-Born

28th April 2016:
Hey, Nix here for the Hot Seat!

I thought I'd check this one out because the summary made me very curious. I love the idea of writing about muggles witnessing magic and not knowing how to process it. Especially when they can't write it off as a figment of their imagination. Also, the part where he says he's not crazy and his mother had him checked as a kid immediately reminded me of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory and I adore Sheldon, so I really wanted see what this story was about.

Okay, so this is even more interesting than I thought it was going to be! It sounds like Joey just might be a wizard himself, but was probably raised by muggle pairs and so has had no previous teachings about magic and wizards. I mean if he can keep his cereal bowl floating in midair so it doesn't fall off the table...

Although, I'm pretty sure, wizard or muggle, the Knight bus is probably going as too fast of a speed for anyone to really notice, as long as it's moving. And it's probably got charms to keep muggles from seeing it when it's not moving...

But now he's 12 and still hasn't received a letter. That's very strange. Oh, wait here's Hagrid! However, I'm a little surprised Hagrid is the one coming to this kid's house to inform him of Hogwarts. It seems not the best choice to have a half-giant in a muggle neighborhood. I would suspect a headmaster/headmistress or deputy headmaster/headmistress would be the best option. Harry was a different case of course, because Hagrid I think personally requested to fetch him and was also fetching him from a tiny island in the middle of the sea.

I kind of love Joey's parents' reactions though when Hagrid magically lifts him down the staircase. And the classic You're a wizard! All in all I thought this was a very enjoyable chapter and I can't wait to read what you come up with in the next chapters!

Review #13, by EnigmaticEyes16Thief: Scones And Jam

26th April 2016:
Hey Kaitlin! I was very curious when I saw this was about Romilda Vane so I thought I would check it out!

I was actually very pleasantly surprised by this! I've never really read about Romilda outside of the HP books, so I don't have anything more than the little canon info we know to go off of, but I really enjoyed how you were able to put her in a better light and give her some redeeming qualities. I think you did a wonderful job bringing out the good-doer yet reckless Gryffindor in her. And it's realistic because I'm sure living through the year with the Carrows was life-changing for everyone attending Hogwarts. I really hope her plan worked out and all the starving kids were able to get food. And I also hope that Romilda doessn't come out it too bad off, although the Cruciatus Curse has got to be pretty rough.

Anyway, great story! And congrats again on completing your 100 Challenge entries! You are amazing!

Review #14, by EnigmaticEyes16Like a Multiverse on Fire: Crush

22nd April 2016:
I love reading Millie, she's hilarious. I'm also very excited about this new and famous crush! But at the same time I'm just over here, flailing my arms around at the screen like "But what about Sirius!?"

I'm very curious to meet this Rafe Scamander though when the time comes. I wonder how him and Millie will meet... And I'm even more curious as to how Sirius will react when he finds out Millie has a crush on someone else... Oh boy...

I also love how James is trying to help Sirius with Millie. I mean he does have a point. Millie's only ever technically turned him down because of circumstances. So, really he does have a chance. And she finds him attractive, but of course, he doesn't really know that. I would like to see him woo her though and show her that he's a real person under all the pretense.

I also love how perfect Millie and Sirius are for each other, both never really knowing how to open up to people, especially the opposite sex it seems. I mean, Sirius is a playboy but he doesn't seem too willing to open up to women if the Marissa fiasco says anything. And Millie just doesn't know how to talk to people in general. Except for Lily.

Also, will there be Quidditch anytime soon? You say James and Millie are both on the team. I'd love to see some of this incorporated in the story!

Also, I like Frank. I'm glad the male barista finally has a name. And I love how he's completely eavesdropping and putting in his own two cents on Millie and Lily's conversation while they're hiding behind the counter.

Another wonderful chapter! Thanks so much for updating!


Author's Response: What about Sirius, indeed! But he's a big boy, I'm sure he'll be alright. More importantly though: DRAMA!

Drama, drama, drama! That's all I can say when those three lives collide.

You are very clearly Team Sirius. (I am also Team Sirius what am I saying?) James is a cutie, who just wants to see his friend happy.

Millie and Sirius are quite similar - but is it in all the wrong ways? Perhaps, perhaps...

I'm still on the fence with Quidditch. I've mentioned it a couple of times, now, but I'm not certain whether or not I want to write a Quidditch scene.

Frank is great. I also like Frank. May he cameo once more.

Thanks for the lovely review, Nix :)

Review #15, by EnigmaticEyes16Less Than: Less Than

21st April 2016:
Meg, this is such a powerfully poignant story. I truly felt for Hannah throughout reading this, from suspecting, to knowing, to fearing losing the one she loves. I especially love that Neville was able to quell most of her fears, and that her inability to have children didn't change the fact that he loves her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. This was a very bittersweet and well-written read. I can't possibly know what you're going through at the moment, but thank you so much for sharing it through this story.


Author's Response: Thanks Nix *hugs*

I thought of Hannah immediately when I planned this. I don't remember hearing anything about them having children, so I started to think that maybe she was like me and possibly couldn't. And I can't see Neville being the type to leave her over it. He's way too loyal, almost to a fault. (Like when I confronted Voldemort).

I'm glad that Hannah's emotions came through, because her thoughts were all over the place. I was worried that this might have been too scattered. I'm happy it wasn't.

It was really therapeutic writing this, and I'm hoping that others who are in a similar situation will feel the same way after reading it.

Thank you so much for reading and the lovely review. I really means a lot! ♥

Love and hugs,

AH! James and Lily made out! I'm so excited! I'm very curious to see how this will progress. And how Sirius will continue to try for Millie's acceptance.

Also, I'm glad James was able to gather all the different colored cups. Although it's kind of hilarious that he chose to wear them as a necklace. Also, this story is so very funny! I love all the little jokes and sarcasm! It's all very well done.

Thanks for posting another chapter! I can't wait to read more! I do hope you post again soon.


Author's Response: I am also excited that James and Lily made out! So is Millie! And Sirius, probably. Basically everyone is excited that they made out except Lily Evans.

I am amazed at how James' personal quest for all the multi-coloured cups has meant so much to everyone. Both James and I are honoured and humbled by the support.

Thanks so much for the wonderful review, Nix :)

Review #17, by EnigmaticEyes16Like a Multiverse on Fire: Cups

21st April 2016:
Hi! I am here for the Slytherin Review Tag!

800! i'm so glad you're posting more chapters! Sirius and Millie are so cute! As always. I am squeeing hardcore right now and I don't know why! But this chapter makes me so happy!

I'm very curious about what happened with Marissa. It is starting to sound like maybe what happened wasn't completely made up but Sirius clearly cares more about Millie might think of him from what happened than about what Marissa thinks.

And I love how there are different colored cups for each party! I wonder if James will succeed in finding all of the different colors. I thought it was hilarious how he went off on his own like that since his friends wouldn't follow him.

I'm also just as happy as Sirius maybe that Lily was able to drag Millie out to the party. If only she was a little more willing to really participate in the fun. I can't wait to read the next chapter! Will be checking that out immediately!

Great chapter! Thanks again for posting!


Author's Response: Sirius and Millie are indeed so cute - I think it's the reason why I can't leave them alone.

Sirius is a right drama queen. But of course he cares about what Millie thinks of him and his actions - crushes can be horrible that way.

James is crazy. Only time will tell if he is indeed, successful on his quest.

Drinking alcohol from a bathtub is dangerous! But yes, Millie has some growing to do in the socialisation department. Or not. Who knows.

Thanks so much for the review, Nix :)

Review #18, by EnigmaticEyes16Leaving You There was the Most Honest Thing Ive Ever Done: The Bathroom

15th April 2016:
Hi! I am here for the Hot Seat! This is an interesting story! I wish there was more about Rose's relationship with both Scorpius and Lupin. I wish I knew more about why she decided she didn't love Scoprius and would rather be with Teddy.

Wow. That is a very rushed engagement and wedding! Why was Scorpius in such a hurry to get married? I don't see why he couldn't wait. It was also a bit confusing because you use the term "ex" to describe both Teddy and Scorpius, I had to reread that section to figure out what was going on. I was also a little confused because you say Teddy is with someone else, but then he's not, he's broken up with Rose's cousin and I wasn't really sure what was happening.

But this was a nicely written little one-shot! Great job on this!

Hi! I am here for the Slytherin Review Tag!

I am very intrigued by this chapter! The dream Eve had is very curious and I'm very anxious to know why she's having this dream and what it has to do with her being Slytherin royalty, and why she won't tell her brother about it...

I'm also very curious about Eve herself and how she seems to be in charge of the Slytherins. And I'm interested in how Sirius is constantly keeping an eye on her. I'm very curious to learn more about the two of them and their past in the upcoming chapters! I'm also very excited to see who wins the duel in the next chapter and what will happen afterward.

I also wonder how the Slytherins planned to use the poor little first year to get liquor from the Hog's Head.

This is a very interesting story so far! I do hope you update again soon so we can find out what happens next!


Author's Response: Oh yay, hello!

I've really enjoyed thinking about little moments in Eve and Sirius's past, and I've got a few scenes already half written out, so you will be finding out eventually! Just hoping I can slip them in without making it too clunky, haha.

Thank you for your lovely words, I'm really excited to get the next chapter in the queue now, I'm just getting it checked over by a beta at the moment! :)

Review #20, by EnigmaticEyes16Blaise Zabini and the Trouble with Theodore Nott: Blaise Zabini and the Rude Awakening

3rd April 2016:
YAY FOR BLAISE AND THEO!!! *Hugs them tightly and never lets them go* I adore them. Even when they're fighting. This was a hilarious chapter, Tammi, with Blaise stalking Harry and talking to Pansy and them acting all couple-like, only to attract all the Slytherins to come join them until Theo finally came along.

I like how Pansy's in total command of the boys when she gets angry. She's clearly the smartest one of the bunch. And the thing with Lavender stalking Theo was hilarious! Hahaha! Although, I'm wondering just what Harry overheard from eavesdropping on the Slytherins' conversation and what he gathered from it...

And Theodore just tackled Blaise in front of everyone in the Great Hall! I'm sensing detentions for sure. And more glares from Harry.

I hope you update again soon, I can't wait to see what happens next!


Author's Response: They are loving their hugs! :D

Thank you so much! There are so many stalkers in this story!

Pansy is the boss! haha :D

Thank you so much !!!

Review #21, by EnigmaticEyes16White Poppies: White Poppies

14th March 2016:
Hello again, Ellie! I'm here again for another Hot Seat review!

I had to read through this story a couple times to grasp what was being said (probably because I'm tired) but this was a really intriguing read!

I'm very interested in the way Helena describes being a ghost, like a murky prison, and in another prison at that because she's always viewed Hogwarts as a prison, a place where she grew up yet has constantly been overlooked and overshadowed by her mother. And as a ghost she's bound to this place she's hated so much, forever trapped and unable to entertain herself without the help of the living it seems.

Of course, it would make sense that when a charming young boy came along who was finally interested in her and not her mother, because she is the only one left who could know where the diadem is, that she would be more than willing to befriend him and tell him her secrets that she's been keeping for centuries.

The ending is a little strange though... she says she doesn't care about the future, but she did help in playing a role in saving it, by helping Harry defeat Voldemort by telling him where to find the diadem. The most confusing bit though is where she says "This is who I am now, who I was foreseen to be." Was she foreseen to be a ghost? Did someone know that she would become this prisoner in her own home? It's a very curious thing to say.

But all in all this was a great little one-shot and I really enjoyed the extra insight into Helena's mind.


Author's Response: Hi again, and thanks again!

Yup - it's a grey sad place for Helena. I think I meant this piece to be written before she helped Harry? Idk tho, it's so old, I'm not sure what I was trying to sort out. I just think her character is so interesting! And I wanted to explore this side of the afterlife. Hmm I always imagined Rowena/Helena to be seers of some sort, so I think there's where I got that last line from? Again, I have no idea ;)

Thanks for the review, I think you grasped the piece perfectly btw, hope you got some sleep haha

Review #22, by EnigmaticEyes16gaslights: gaslights

14th March 2016:
Hey Ellie! This is such an interesting one-shot! I've never been a huge fan of Lavender, and I'm still not to be honest, but I liked how you took the idea of gaslighting, of belittling someone because you don't see the same way as someone else might and turning it into a story. I also really enjoyed all the rhyming! It was very fun to read and easy to follow, even if I don't really see Lavender rhyming this much, but it's something different which is nice. The rhyming gave the story a very nice sing-song kind of flow.

It is very sad that Lavender gets pushed by the wayside because Ron is too afraid to actually talk to her again about their relationship and instead just cuts her off basically. Of course, he doesn't even really know what happened or why they're suddenly not together anymore, he's just glad to finally be rid of her.

Poor Lavender, she's really does get the short stick on this one. To think she was meant to find her true love only to find out their was no real love between them at all when she thought there was is super harsh. Hopefully, she wasn't wrong though and she will soon find her true love. But then you mention how now she sees the grim in her cup... and I wonder if you are implying that she'll die before she ever meets her true love...

Anyway, great little one-shot! It was truly a pleasure to read!


Author's Response: Hiya Nix!

Thank you for the Hot Seat lovin' :)

I share your feelings on lavlav. no worries. but she's the perfectly naive, silly scorned lover woman for this gaslights theme I crafted on a whim here.

I'm not sure what the grim implied - could be metaphor for her views on love, I could have used it for rhyming purposes haha, sorry I wish I had a better answer!

thanks again for reviewing - see you in the Pit darling

Review #23, by EnigmaticEyes16cardinal rules [& systematically breaking them]: one.

6th March 2016:
Hey elisabeth! This is for the HPFF Review-A-Thon.

I thought this was a great intro to the story so far. I'm very curious to see where you take it. I like how this chapter pretty clearly sums up the reality of flat hunting and how much of a struggle it can be to find something in your budget range.

I'm also very curious to know more about what has happened between Harry and Ginny. I know this is meant to be a Ginny/Luna but I'd really like to know more about why it was necessary for Harry and Ginny to break up. And I'm very curious to see how Ginny and Luna's relationship will develop, especially once they are living together.

I think this is a great beginning to your story and I can't wait to read more!

Review #24, by EnigmaticEyes16Count the Ways: Chapter 1

23rd February 2016:
Oh my God, Tammi! This is so amazing! I wish there was more! I loved how Sirius treats Harry and the AU-ness of it all with James and Lily being alive and Sirius and Remus not knowing each other before this meeting. I loved all of Sirius' reactions to Remus and how he reads James and Lily's mail (again! meaning not the first time, lol) to intercept Remus' letters to them so he can visit Remus himself. And I loved how Sirius just went and blurted it out, asking Remus to dinner and how Remus responded to Sirius very unintended pun with the perfect answer! Personally, I would love to see a version of this story from Remus' POV but this is still wonderfully brilliant on it's own and I loved reading every word of it!

Great job!

Author's Response: Nix!!!

I'm so glad that you like this! :D

I really want to write more AU marauders as parent's/uncles/godfathers so maybe I will write more of this? And a Remus POV chapter?
Oh that Sirius! he's such a handful at times isn't he? I don't know how James and Lily put up with him haha Remus is going to have his hands full most of the time

Thank you so much!

Review #25, by EnigmaticEyes16I Know You Care: I Know It's Always Been There

22nd February 2016:
Hola! I am here for the Slytherin Review Tag! And I must say... wow. I know this is one of your older stories (but there's not a lot on your page that I haven't read) and there are some tiny bits where this story could use a beta or maybe just another read through... but this story is so strong and so powerful!

It wasn't the easiest following the constantly shifting timeline, but I loved this so much! It was so sweet to see a little Hermione and Draco getting along, and even trying to be friends after Draco avoided her and told her he wasn't allowed to be friends with her because she was muggle-born. I would have loved to have seen so much more of this! Like where Hermione slaps Draco, I would have loved to have seen that scene from this Hermione's perspective, having to slap someone she cares about so much and who has been so sweet to her in secret, but who also hurts her every time they're in public.

And I loved the scene where he'd sit on her bed in the Hospital Wing and keep her company while she was still in cat form from the Polyjuice potion gone wrong! That was so adorable! And she's all cheeky and cryptic because he blames Harry and Ron for what happened to her and knows nothing about them brewing polyjuice potion to spy on him, or that it was all her idea really to use polyjuice potion in the first place.

I also loved the bit about the Yule Ball. I would have loved it if you'd gone into more detail about that since that is the first time they speak after she hits him and it's been a whole year since then. But it was so sweet that he was there for her when Ron was being a complete jerk. Although I have to wonder, if she went out to the grounds with Draco, then where the heck did Viktor go for the rest of the night? Did he just enjoy the rest of the dance without her?

I also love that in the main scene you keep returning to throughout, that Draco protected her from the bricks falling, risking himself in the process, although I'm glad his wounds weren't life threatening. Although what surprises me the most about this story is the end. To have waited for her for almost a year until she returned, and to be there in that moment they finally reunite... it's all so perfect. I love it but it seems a little unrealistic that when she kisses him the whole crowd cheers and wolf whistles... I mean, this Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy we're talking about... I expected more shocked gasps and confusion from the crowd. But at the same time, this was so cute and enjoyable to read and I loved every bit of it.

This is a great story, Avi!
