Review #1, by love_is_magic_All the truth about Jimmy Portman: The Hogwarts' Express

5th November 2016:
Oh my gosh! This was so interesting!

I was intrigued by the characters at first, then - when we met Ron - as I noticed this was an AU, I was very curious what story you were hoping to tell. But as soon as the part with Neville came up, I was hooked! How interesting!!!

I'm curious, are we to assume that since Jimmy is from America that he doesn't know about Neville and Voldemort? I guess I'll just have to keep reading to find out!

Also, I assume Harry will be in here somewhere as just a normal student with his parents alive and whatnot. I really am very curious to keep reading! You've definitely hooked me in!

Just so you know, I think you've got a typo in the last sentence in the paragraph that begins "Jimmy spent the first half hour of the trip alone...".

Well done! I can't wait to see where this goes :D

Author's Response: Hello! :)
Thank you for stopping by!

Ah, I'm so glad you found this interesting. Happy you are enjoying the characters so far. As for the story is going... well, you'll find out as you read on, I suppose... ;)

Jimmy does know about Neville and Voldemort, but it isn't as big of a deal for him as it is for English children.

As for Harry... who knows? :P Once again, just read on and you'll find out. ;)

Oh, I'm quite sure there are a few typos here and there. One day I'll make a huge edit of this. ;)

Thank you so much for the lovely review. Really hope I'll see you back again!

Much love,

Well, you definitely can write a Marauder story.

Author's Response: This. This is all I needed to hear.

Thank you so much!! ♥

Review #3, by love_is_magic_slowly: and then all at once

13th November 2014:
Okay, first of all... aw!
Now that that's out of my system :) I LOVE the way you made her walk to the alter a symbol for the journey of falling in love. That was such a great touch, and you placed the realization of that symbol at an ideal time for the reader; right at the end.
I also love the way you built up the anticipation of her not being able to see him, and the clarity that comes when she finally does.
Overall, this was great! Thanks for blessing the archives with this great read!

Review #4, by love_is_magic_Snakes & Ladders: i. preconception

31st October 2014:
Hey there!
Sorry for the super last minute review for the October review swap, but I am finally here!! (Yayyy!!!)
Also, I can already tell I am going to love this story. I don't know how it's escaped my notice thus far... but I'm fairly certain I will be hooked from here on out. That being said... LET'S DO THIS!

Okay, so this was a really good set up so far! You've given some really good background and have seamlessly introduced the characters. I know that may be an obvious thing, but it's difficult to do sometimes, and you've just done a good job!

Oh my gosh!! Ordering a salad for her?! What a jerk! Yeah, it just got worse. Haha I can't wait to see where it goes from here.

Just a quick typo correction, in the paragraph starting with 'I couldn't help but sigh in relief', I'm not sure what you meant by 'he was only a little than me'. Just pointing that out for a possible future edit :) -- (Also, a little way down, I think you meant Slytherins instead of 'Slytherin took Herbology with you Ravenclaws').

Oooo is Albus going to be the love interest?!

Wow! Well that did escalate quickly!

I did really like this chapter, I can't wait to read on and I can tell it's gonna be pretty great! Good job :D


Author's Response: Ah, hi! No worries :p I'm glad you enjoyed! Thanks so much for all your kind words! And oops, you are completely right about those typos ;) my bad! It's supposed to say "he was only a little taller than me" - how on earth could I have forgotten that key word?!
Albus is most definitely the love interest ;) eventually...
Thanks so much for reading and reviewing :)

Review #5, by love_is_magic_Devlin Potter: Riddle and Rescue: The Informant

6th October 2014:
Duh Duh Duh!!! What a cliff-hanger!

Wow, okay! So you did a really good job of catching my attention right away. The relationship between Devlin and Harry seemed fairly clear, but I clung on in the beginning to be sure he was Harry's son, then couldn't stop reading from there.

I'm very interested in the way you chose to write this story, so far from conventional canon. It adds a unique element and I can't wait to see where you go with it.

Also, this is certainly a different side of Harry, now isn't it? I suppose it makes sense in a way, though. It's not like we haven't seen him dark before (ahem ahem.. OotP), and I think that if anything would bring out that side of him, it would be the disappearance and supposed death of his son.

I absolutely adore the touch about the lilies, lets just say that certain tears were certainly brought to my eyes.

Well, I loved this! It's so different from other things I've read on here and I can't wait to see where it goes! You've certainly caught my attention :)

Review #6, by love_is_magic_Sacrifice: Of Beginnings, Aurors, and Torn Photographs

1st October 2014:
Hey there! I'm here for our swap!

First of all, you're a great writer. The narration here was very well done, though the names of those kids sure will be difficult to distinguish :P Speaking of which, I love what you've done with the characters. They feel very real and are super relatable.

As is the set up of this story. The situation these kids are in draws a lot of sympathy, and is relatable to the lives of too many in the Muggle world.

Over all, I love what you've done so far and I can't wait to see where you take this!

Author's Response: Hi, Christy!

Thanks for the review and kind words :). I know the kids were a bit too much to juggle in the first chapter, but they become much more easier to differentiate as the story continues.

Thanks so much!

Review #7, by love_is_magic_Event Three - Saving Teddy: Saving Teddy

1st October 2014:
That one was quite cute, as well! I loved when you had Ron tell the spider that he 'will not tapdance!'

Of course it would be a spider that Ron needs to save Rose from :P it was quite nice seeing him as a father, though. Most fics cover their pregnancy stages, or a distant view of their parenthood from the next-gen perspective.

I really liked this! Good job :D

Review #8, by love_is_magic_Event Three - The Plans We Make: The Plans We Make

1st October 2014:
I was going to begin this review in a somewhat mature and logical way... But 'awww' is seriously all I can get my brain to form into words after that last line. Seriously. A-dor-able.

Anyways, aside from succeeding in breaking my heart into ail lion tiny little pieces, this one-shot was really well written. You did a great job with writing Harry's thoughts and the dialogue was quite well done as well.

I loved the great references to first year when they're thinking about how things aren't always planned. That was a really nice touch.

I'm not sure what else to say besides GREAT JOB! I loved this piece and can't wait reading the rest of what looks like a series.
Christy x

Author's Response: Hey!!! I was so happy when you made a reappearance, and then when I saw these reviews it made me smile!!

This was actually originally the first chapter of a novella that wasn't going anywhere, and so I used it for this.

It isn't a series, exactly, but they were all written for the House Cup.

Thanks so much, love!

Review #9, by love_is_magic_Here, There & Everywhere: Here, There and Everywhere

30th September 2014:

Just... wow.

This was such a beautiful one-shot for Hermione and Ron. It was so well written; flowing gracefully in a way and simply making sense.

You found a way to make a Ron/Hermione so new and unique. By focusing on July along, you found an angle that nobody has explored before, and you did it SO WELL!

I loved it! Way to go!

Author's Response: Hi Christy!! :D

Wow, thank you! This review was so very sweet and really made my day, so thank you! ♥

I'm so glad you liked the portrayal of Ron and Hermione and how it felt unique. I was quite nervous about writing canon characters, especially ones as well developed as these two, and usually avoid them, so knowing you thought I did a good job with them means a lot.

Thanks so much!! :)

Review #10, by love_is_magic_Shades of Red: Auburn

6th June 2014:
Hey there!

Wow, so this title of this chapter really caught my attention from the beginning. Ginny meeting Aragog; I honestly don't know what to expect from a story with this title... but I guess that's what actually reading the story is for, right? Right. HERE WE GO!

Hmmm, see! This is the unexpectedness I am talking about! I totally thought this was gonna be set during CoS. I mean, 'Harry and Ginny's cottage', being the first words of this story, clearly indicate that this story is set post-Hogwarts, when Aragog isn't even alive. I will now again emphasize the fact that I have no idea what to expect. Is this an AU? Once again, I must remind myself to just keep reading so all my questions may be answered.

Okay, so I can already tell that this is really well written. Also, I should really stop being so in awe of this every time I read one of your stories, but I honestly can't help it, so I guess I'll just keep telling you. You're awesome, I can already tell this story's awesome, you write amazingly (I'm jealous), keep up the good work!

Unless I'm mixing up my stories, the mention of Angelina's ended career due to injury was a nice tie-in with the shared universe of your stories; I love it!

Quick correction: In the line starting with "That's sweet", I think you meant to say "jealous of (a or his) 168 hour workweek". Also, another one: in the line starting with "to be Ginny." I think you meant to say "You and Ron are (not and) rising in the Auror office".

I love what you did with the quick little miscommunication. As sad as it also is, it was sweet to see Harry's frantic reaction when he thought Ginny wanted a divorce.

Upon reaching the end of this story, I am now just haunted with figuring out the title (a very, very good type of haunted). Is it the equivalent of Ginny being forced to face her greatest fear - choosing between her family and Quidditch - as Aragog was for Ron? Interesting... I have no final answer at the moment, but have no doubt that this will be picking away at the back of my mind for quite some time...

Anyways, I really did love this story. In fact, Im seriously considering favouriting it! Thanks so much for adding this to the HPFF world and I can't wait to read more!


Author's Response: Hey, thanks so much for reviewing!!

The reason for the summary... the story was inspired by the song Meeting Aragog from the CoS soundtrack. All of the chapters of this will be a one-shot about each of the Weasley children inspired by a song from the movies.

You're so nice!!! I love your reviews!!

With what happened to Angelina... not all of my stories take place in the same universe, but that's headcanon for me that I included. There will be other things in this story that might not jive with my other stories.

The next chapters (Ron's. It's inspired by A Window to the Past) should be up sometime next week. Hopefully. It'll be in the queue by a week from tomorrow. I can commit to that.

Thank you so much for such a nice review!! It means a lot to me!

Review #11, by love_is_magic_When Skies Are Grey: You Are My Sunshine

2nd June 2014:
Okay, wow. So that was really well written and just amazingly developed altogether. It has just the right balance and buildup; giving the reader time to fall in love with the characters, then slowly burning that happiness to the ground :P

I just have a few typo corrections (sorry, I feel like I always do this to you...):

In the paragraph starting with 'In the winter', you wrote 'You sparkling dress robes of deep purple that hung perfectly off of your narrow frame' and I think you meant to make that 'your' or 'you wore'.

You also said 'you'd became something of a school celebrity' and I think you meant 'become'.

Last one, I promise! You said, 'every time to try to kill yourself' and I think you meant 'you' instead of 'to'.

Anyways, I don't know how, but the slow twist of the plot honestly still shocked and surprised me. Literally, as I was reading, I wrote "Oh gosh... I should have seen this coming. The whole intro was about the pain of having someone you love contemplate suicide. That was the intro, and I still didn't see this coming." Yeah, I should have anticipated it... but it definitely got to me :,(

I'm really not sure what else to say, other than to emphasize once again how much I loved this one-shot. I honestly think it's far outside anything I've ever read before and I really want to know what ends up happening (Though I expect Katie does end up killing herself... sadly... and little though I want her to)... on that happy note... Great job! I loved it :D


Author's Response: Hello! Thanks for reviewing. Your reviews are always the sweetest. Seeing them (and rereading them) always puts a smile on my face.

Don't ever feel shy about pointing out typos! I make them a lot and usually don't see them no matter how often I look over something

Awww, I'm sorry that you didn't see it coming :(

Don't be so sure that Katie ends up killing herself! I left it ambiguous intentionally, but I'd personally like to think that, especially after the war, she improves.

Thanks for such an amazing review, I'm so glad that you liked it.

Review #12, by love_is_magic_Spectacular Now: Spectacular Now

22nd May 2014:
Gosh, okay, so I already love this!

I obviously haven't experiences the awesome/painful experience that is parenthood yet, but I can imagine you captured it pretty spot on here. I love how you draw it into Mr & Mrs Weasley (... Or I guess Molly and Arthur... Since there seem to be several Weasley marriages lately...) and how Fred can now totally relate and understand on a new level.

Quick typo, in the line that starts with 'she's beautiful' (adorable, by the way), I think you meant to say 'more than one mystery stain' instead of 'stains'. But disregarding that, this scene is just perfect. I love the way you capture both the struggles and simple beauty of everything, it's a great touch.

OH MY GOSH! Do you want to make me cry? 'When he laughs, it's like I'm hearing my brother again'. *cries for days* But really, though, I'm slowly becoming more and more amazed at the little touches you added in here. The conversation with Angelina's mum and George's reflection on them are just a continuation of the crazy awesomeness this story is just gushing with. I really can't describe it and put it into words... but lemme just try to tell you how awesome it is so I can stop gushing from here on out... IT'S PRETTY DANG AWESOME! Okay, I will try to move on now...

Ahhh FRED!! What an awesome twist :D

Hmmm I love what you did with the whole ghost aspect. The mechanics of all that is left blatantly open by JK and you did a great job of taking your creative liberties with it, then explaining your take :D

Well, that was great. And I soo mean that. You made this so realistic and added in so many great touches, I am super impressed by this one-shot!

Well done!


Author's Response: Hello!!

I haven't experienced having children, either... and even more, haven't ever had twins.

Thanks for pointing that out! I'll go fix that!

Awww, I'm not trying to make you cry! A little sad, maybe... but not to sad. You're so sweet!

Fred! Yes! The line that I had to include was the bit about the figure under the tree, so I immediately thought Fred.

Thanks so much for such a lovely review!!

Review #13, by love_is_magic_My Girl: My Girl

22nd May 2014:
Hiya! Just stopping by to leave one of my very belated challenge prizes! (sorry...)

Wow, okay! This was a very different writing style, but I loved it. It really spoke to the seriousness with which Ron was approaching the situation... especially as it is Ron who was saying all of this and the tone so juxtaposed what we normally see from him.

I also really felt like this came from the heart and was therefore reached a sincere level in the reader.

I love the way you connected Rose to Hermione. I'm sure that for Ron - who I have always imagined to be very protective of his children - the realisation that Scorpius' situation is the same as Ron's was with Hermione would be helpful for him in getting through the letting-go stages.

Anyways, I'm not really sure what else to say other than well done! This was such a different take and I think it turned out well for you :D


Author's Response: Hey! It's okay! I don't mind waiting.

The writing style came mostly from not being able to use "the". I ended up liking writing a more matured Ron, though.

I can imagine Hermione and Rose being on the same side of an argument, and then Ron and Scorpius joining forces with Hugo and still probably losing.

Thanks for such a nice review!

Review #14, by love_is_magic_The End of an Era: The Prank

9th May 2014:
Hiya there!!! Yes, it has taken me ages to get around to this, but thanks for your amazing patience as I've been away from home. You're basically the greatest. Ever.

Okay, so now for this awesome story!

Really quick correction; In the paragraph that starts with 'They climbed out of bed...', I think you meant the next line to read 'They each brought their wands to it...'. I am sure everyone reading this knows what you mean, but I thought I'd point it out just in case you ever did an edit (:

I don't know why, but I love that you had them say they'd need to have Dean design some packaging. I think it's just my nerdy respect for you knowing/remembering his artistic talents from JK's books.

Another quick correction for [the -> they] after Fred and George totally lie to poor ole Lee about their devious plans.

HA! I know you warned me about Lee's rhyming predicament before, but I'm glad I've had enough distance from that to forget before I read this. Brilliant!

Ginny! I've missed her. I really have.
Another correction, sorry! It's in the paragraph that starts with 'With that command, the room went dark...'. I think you meant to say, 'This would be the last time...'. Okay, moving on to much more important things.

I love the dynamic you gave Lee's relationship with the twins. You never see much of that in the books, so I love what you've done with it here. Obviously - with these events particularly - Lee would be having a hard time. I'm glad you added that in here and didn't just skim over that bit.

I also love the way that you give McGonagall the unique ability to tell Fred and George apart. That was some awesome character development and really added to the story.

I also can't help but admire how much you keep in line with the books. Having her mention being busy with career advice was a great touch.

Ah! The Marauders! I always find it crazy that Harry never gave Fred and George the full back story. So it's great to see the way George is just soaking it all in here.

Another correction. '... if they he hasn't connected the dots...' -> '... if he hasn't connected the dots...'

Blimey, London. They have got a long way to fly. I never thought about that before.

Well... this was just awesome. You've done a terrific job and added such a unique perspective to this scene! I love what you've done with the characters and how you've tied everything in. Great job!!!

Anyways. YOU'RE THE OFFICIAL WINNER!!! YAYYY!!! *throws confetti*

Seriously, great job! I loved reading it, I'm just sorry it took me so long to give you some feedback! You've been awesome and so patient with me :D I can't wait to give you your review prizes! Luckily, it looks like you've been busy while I've been away! I have plenty to catch up on and I honestly can't wait to read more of your awesome stories! I was genuinely concerned that there wouldn't be enough things I hadn't already reviewed!


Okay bye!!


Also, sorry for the rather stream-of-consciousness review o.O

Author's Response: Hey!! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get around to responding to this...

Thanks for the corrections! One of these days, I'll get around to editing this... one of these days... eventually...

Oh man. Until just now I forgot about the rhyming thing. That took FOREVER, man!

I love Lee! I really think that as awesome as the twins are, Lee was always a huge part of their shenanigans and they were probably very close to him. He probably always did struggle with feeling like he was just no quite in the circle.

Thanks so much for such an amazing review! And Yay! Confetti!!!

You're a doll.

Review #15, by love_is_magic_A Midwinter’s Proposal: A Midwinter’s Proposal

13th March 2014:
Hey there!!

This was SUCH a sweet one-shot. I love Ron and Hermione and you truly did a great job with them :D

As for your A/N questions, I liked Ron's speech. The only thing I would suggest is maybe a little more lead-in in the beginning. We all know their history, but some more of Ron's thoughts or flash-backs would have made this a little more realistic and less rushed. Honestly though, I'm really searching for any CC to give you. It was absolutely amazing :D I loved it!


Author's Response: Hi! Sorry for the delay in responding...

Thank you very much! That is a very good suggestion of adding a little more of their history from Ron's viewpoint and I will consider how to include it into the story.

Thank you very much for reading and reviewing!

Review #16, by love_is_magic_Impossible: Impossible

7th March 2014:
Hello! I just couldn't get enough of your writing, so I came back for more!

Again, I find myself wondering how it is that you've only written two one-shots. This was absolutely amazing! Do you write somewhere else? Honestly, you have some great talent and I can tell you really put effort into what you're writing. It's great.

As much as James and Lily will forever be together in my head, I still love feeling bad for Snape. He really does have such a tragic life, whatever questionable choices he made within it. You did such a good job of capturing the progression of their relationship and the emotions he was undoubtedly experiencing through it all. It was heartbreaking but wonderful at the same time.

I sincerely hope you write more sometime. This story is going in my favourites :D I really am glad that the Blackout Battle has caused me to discover your writing, you've got talent! Great job!


Gryffindor vs. Slytherin Blackout Battle 15/15

Author's Response: Hello again!
I'm glad you like my writing! I don't really write anywhere else though. I do like James, but he seem quite - arrogant sometimes? I don't know, but Sev seems a little more insecure, which makes my heart melt for him.
Yay, I'm so happy! Thank you for your lovely reviews Christy!

Review #17, by love_is_magic_Obliviate: Decisions

7th March 2014:
Hello! So immediately, even from your AP, this story drew me in. I was always interested in poor Hermione having to obvliviate her own parents, so I was eager to see your take on it.

Needless to say, I was not disappointed. You did an amazing job. If I hadn't seen your AP, I would never have guessed this was your first story. It was really well done and your use of description, dialogue and plot was great.

I love the idea of the Grangers having another daugher. That would certainly add to the complexity of the situation and definitely added to this story.

I also love the insight you provide into Hermione's past. The bits about her childhood. It's interesting that we never see that side of her in JK's books.

Overall, you did a great job. I can't wait to read your other one-shot!


Gryffindor vs. Slytherin Blackout Battle 14/15

Author's Response: Hi Christy!
Nice to meet you, and I'm glad you liked it! Huh, I didn't think my dialogue was very good, so thank you indeed! I do like Kenzie, I think she is a little contrast to Hermione who is so quiet most of the time. Thank you for the praise, and for reviewing. Am I allowed to wish the lions luck? Hmm. You did win the first round... Oh well, good luck!

Review #18, by love_is_magic_Noble: Noble

7th March 2014:
Hello! I just thought I would stop by to leave a quick review for this amazing fic, especially since it was written for the Blackout Battle!

So I thought this was an amazing idea. The memory with the Gaunts, in my opinion, is one of the most haunting in the Harry Potter series. It is clear that the characters of the Gaunts are just so deep and complex, it's crazy to think that JK tackled them in only that one scene. I also think that makes the need for fics focused around them even greater and you did an amazing job with this one!

It was just truly written so so well. You have an amazing grasp of description and, though it is admittedly a dark place, you really take the reader into Morfin's world. You offer a new insight into his character and it was very well done. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this!


Gryffindor vs. Slytherin Blackout Battle 10/15

Author's Response: Hello! :)

I'm pleased you liked it! I agree - the Gaunts are fascinating, and I've had them pop up in some of my other stories as well. It was so disappointing when that scene was excluded from the movies. I'd love to read more fics about them if they're out there, and I'm so pleased you liked how I portrayed them.

I'm pleased you liked the description and looking into Morfin's world, even if it is a rather bleak one. I'm so glad you liked it, and really appreciate all the wonderful comments.

Thank you so much for the lovely review! :D

Review #19, by love_is_magic_Making Memories: The People Who Live In The World

7th March 2014:
Wow! Let me just start by saying I can't believe you wrote and uploaded this entirely on your phone! That's crazy and I never would have guessed it by how well this is written!

Unfortunately, I have no clue what will happen to the girl, though I obviously want her to wake up! Honestly, I think there's a chance she will make some miraculous recovery and Victorie will adopt her... though maybe that's wishful thinking!

Another quick correction (though now that I know this was written on your phone, I can understand its existence even more):'Within the next hour Victoire had Emmaline bathed, dried, in bed, and asleep' This sentence reads a tad weird, I'm fairly certain you meant to write it another way (: Just thought I would point that out!

Oooh so I have a random prediction that I'm sure is false. Is something fishy going on with Paris?? Victorie questions why Van would have gotten in. That sounds to me like there's something else going on here! I guess I'll just have to wait for an update!


Gryffindor vs. Slytherin Blackout Battle 9/15

Author's Response: I do this a lot, actually! XD It is just the first time I've done it with this story. :) now I've done it with my fifth chapter, and it's getting worrisome because I keep catching mistakes! XD

Haha "and Victoire will adopt her." XD I don't know why, but this made me laugh so much! Haha Though, I can't give anything away, so I'll just leave you to see what happens. :)

Hmmm, I don't think it's weird. Well, what I mean is I don't think I meant it any other way. Maybe a comma placement after 'Within the next hour' ? Or else I'm so used to the phrase I'm not catching on haha. :) That's very possible!

Haha I've not been asked that, but I can assure you nothing like that is in the plans. Not now at least. Victoire is just feeling the anxiety of all these things being piled on her, that she definitely feels like a hard worker. Van being such a 'slacker' just has her a little miffed. She's just nitpicking the small details though. Van is great! :)

Thanks for the reviews and for all the concerns! I love that you've become so engaged with the story and what's happening/going to happen! It makes me super happy! I hope to see you stick around! :D

Review #20, by love_is_magic_Making Memories: The Ending of the Book

7th March 2014:
Wow! So I love the idea of a question at the end of the story! I might borrow that one! Well, yes, actually! I did think she was pregnant, but as soon as she mentioned being sick, I chalked it up to my media brainwashing that nausea=pregnancy. However, now that you ask the question... it makes me think she is pregnant!

Also, you addressed the concern of these chapters being boring. NO! Just... just no! I understand the fear, but I wouldn't say they are boring at all! It's normal for a story to take a while to get started, and I am very well entertained!

I really can't wait to see what this stuffing crumbs in the spaces between the floorboards thing is about! Honestly, when she walked into the room and heard her daughter speaking in what she perceived to be a not-so-innocent way, I was totally creeped out!

I can't wait to see where this is going! Great job, so far!


Gryffindor vs. Slytherin Blackout Battle 8/15

Author's Response: Haha, go ahead :). Insure I've stolen it from someone, too. :) Hm. Preggers of not? That is that question. ;)

Yay! It's not boring! :D I get a little worried if you can't tell ;)

Haha, the stuffing comes with a chapter two updates from my recent entry! :D (Not the next, but the next!) I'm glad this is appropriately concerning xD. Emmaline is strange, yet so friggin' adorable! :D

Thank you, again, for such a lovely review and such nice compliments! :D I'm glad you're entertained and love the story as much as I do. :) I hope you'll stick around to see how it all goes down! :)

7th March 2014:
Hello! Back yet again!

Okay, so this was just more of the greatness that was the first chapter. You mentioned in you A/N that you love this story... it shows! It shows in the love that you have poured into the characters. There was yet even more amazing characterisation going on here, and it was absolutely terrific! I love the way you're writing Teddy's character! He's so sweet and selfless, I can't help but adore him. Speaking of adoring your characters, could Emmaline be any cuter?! That little monkey is just too much for my poor heart!

Again, you've done a terrific job with the description. The pace of this story is so well set up, I feel like I really am a part of everything that's going on, and that's not to be understated!

Review #22, by love_is_magic_Making Memories: Some Personal Lives Can Do With A Little Bothering

7th March 2014:
Darn it! I knew the mail meant there was gonna be a cliff-hanger! At least you have plenty of chapters up, though! Muhahahahaha! Anyways, I'm back for moreee! What can I say, I couldn't help myself!

I love the title of this chapter by the way! It's hilarious, really sets the mood for the story, and generally kicks things off to a great start :D

You do a great job of characterisation here. Going into a Next-Gen, you never know what to expect from the characters, which I suppose is a large part of the beauty of this genre. However, it can be a bit scary and you really did do such a great job not only of introducing the characters, but introducing the story and their lives. First chapters have the danger of becoming boring, just because of all the set-up etc., but this one was honestly terrific! I laughed so hard at Victorie and Louise's conversation! It really was well done! I can't wait to read on!

Author's Response: Hey, the important thing is you started with Just One Memory! :D It's not important to do so, but this story is just sort of a continuation, or a follow up in should say, on Teddy. Just to show that he's done OK ;). So I'm thrilled you've come over to this story!

I hope you stick around for those more ;) I just posted chapter five!

I'm glad you like the titles. I haven't come up with original titles in a while, and I wanted them to sort of capture the essence of the chapters themselves, so I'm glad it worked and you liked it. :)

I love this generation so much, and I must say, this is my proudest Next-Gen :). I usually try doing them with these huge setups and introductions to everyone, but I think this went over smoothly, without having to go into great lengths of saying who is who. :) Again, such a wonderful compliment! :) I'm glad it wasn't boring! :D

I'm glad you laughed! When the scene first popped into my head, I laughed a lot, too! :D It sort of inspired the story in a way. I wanted the conversation, and I was wondering why Louis would need to watch Victoire's daughter, and of course the challenge I had, so everything led to this! :) I'm glad you liked it! :D

Thanks again for the read and review! And, as a double bonus, you get cookies just for coming over to this story in the first place! :D Thank you! :D

Review #23, by love_is_magic_Just One Memory: Just One Memory

7th March 2014:

This looks like such a great story, I'm just gonna jump right in!

I love the connection between Harry and Teddy, neither of them knowing their parents and having to rely on what others tell them. That is such a heartbreaking but somehow consoling fact, that I'm so glad you pointed out.

One thing I noticed, though, was that you refer to Harry as Uncle Harry, when in fact Harry wouldn't be Teddy's Uncle... That's just a picky detail, though. I just thought I would let you know (:

I love the bit about Andromeda being able to see Tonks and Lupin in Teddy, looking past his ability to change appearance so willingly. That was a great touch.

Another random correction, and this one is super small, I'm not even sure why I'm mentioning it, but when Andromeda is talking about Teddy's birth she says 'Weasley's' and I don't think there's a need for the apostrophe. Again, SUPER small correction, but I thought I'd point it out if you ever did an edit (:

I love the sneaky mention of Harry and Ginny's adorable-ness! Exchanging sweet, loving looks and whatnot... are you trying to murder me with adorable?!

Ooooh, a hankerchief with A.B., eh? How mysterious! Hopefully I figure out what that means by the end of this story!

Another quick correction! Sorry, but I feel like, now I've started, there's no stopping... Here, you wrote 'happiest event any of had witnessed in a long time'. I think you mean any of them, or something along those lines.

Awww Teddy finally got his memory, and an adorable one, at that! I love the way you ended it, and just the entire story, for that matter! Well done, you really do have a talent for writing!


P.S. Totally didn't figure out what A.B. stood for, though I really feel like I should know... It'll probably come to me in the middle of the night or something ridiculous, like that!

Gryffindor vs. Slytherin Blackout Battle 5/15

Author's Response: Haha well thanks for jumping in! :D I hope you enjoy the ride!

In glad you liked the connection. In reality, they're the reason I wanted to write it. To show another side of Harry in a way, but through Teddy, and in a very Teddy way! :)

I know he's not really his uncle. It's more of one of those things where you're really close to an older figure that isn't related to you, so you call them Aunt or Uncle. Like, I'm my godson's "Aunt", but I'm in no way related to him. I don't know if that's just something we folks do around here, but that's what I meant by it ;). Sorry for any confusion!

They are adorable aren't they? I love them as a couple and just want more people to like them! :) I'm glad you do!

Oops, small typo! Thanks for pointing it out ;). I'll fix it when I go through my editing spree here soon. :)

I'm so glad you liked it! :D That makes me so happy! And that comment! I'm blushing :3. Thank you so much! :D. And thank you for the review! It's so lovely, and helpful! :D

I'll ease your mind on the A.B thing. It stands for her initials, Andromeda Black. Something old she's had for a while and keeps as an old keepsake, even with her changed last name ;).

Thank you for reading/reviewing!

Review #24, by love_is_magic_A Halloween Visit: A Halloween Visit

7th March 2014:
Wow, so scrolling through your AP, I was torn between so many of the stories, but when I saw this one... let's just say I clicked on it immediately.

So here we go :D Wow, I love that he's coming back on Halloween - the day his parents died - that was a nice touch… though incredibly sad at the same time. Again, here's another heartbreakingly amazing touch; burying the Marauders (with the obvious exception of Peter) together! My heart is already in pieces, I can't imagine the state it will be in by the end of this chapter!

I love his little speech about proposing to Ginny. I think it's great that you had him tell them first and you're right, those probably would be Ron's possible reactions (:

That bit about Teddy was so smart. I never thought about how a toddler's metamorphology would affect his life in the Muggle world! That was a nice touch!

I also love his comment about wanting to get home before Ginny gets home and thinks he's done a runner (: So great! If you can't tell, I'm just a sucker for Ginny and Harry, so any mention of their adorableness is fine by me :P

Overall, such a great one-shot! I thoroughly enjoyed it!


Gryffindor vs. Slytherin Blackout Battle 3/15

Author's Response: Hello! Thanks so much for choosing to read this. It is one of my more recent pieces and I am more anxious about it because it features Harry.

I always felt like Halloween was a very important day for the Potters so it only seemed fitting for Harry to go back on this day. I am pleased you also liked the idea of the marauders being buried together. *hugs* Hope your heart gets better soon xP

It's nice to know that you liked the little 'speech' about the proposal to Ginny, and also the bit about Teddy. I love writing such little details and it makes me happy when they're noticed.

"So great?" Haha thank you so much, I am so flattered you liked the whole Harry/Ginny dynamic I presented here especially since I'm not much of a harry/ginny fan and it took me some time to write this xP

Thank you!

Review #25, by love_is_magic_A Flakey Tragedy: A Flakey Tragedy

7th March 2014:
So, after your amazing Neville fic, I just NEEDED to read more of your stuff (: but also needed a bit of a pick-me-up from the sadness that is the Battle of Hogwarts. Hence, I'm here! Hopefully I'm not jumping the gun in figuring that a food-themed story should be lighter... but I guess we'll see!!

Wow, so again I can't believe how amazing your use of description is. It is just SO AMAZING. I honestly want to start taking notes so I can use it in my own writing! I know you mention in your A/N that this is your second one-shot and you think it shows... Please, let me reassure you... it doesn't! This is great :D

Hahaha so, random note, but this sort of reminds me of a Drapple! In no way other than in its connection to food, though (:

Haha I love the 'Twenty points to Gryffindor at the end' :D

I came into this story with much excitement and I was not disappointed :D This was so great and I am more sure now - if that were even possible - that you are an amazing author!

Twenty points to Slytherin!!!
Christy :D
