OH MY GOD! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
I'm jumping up and down on my swivel chair doing a victory dance right now. This had better not be one of Laura's daydreams! OR ELSE! Ugh! I can't believe I have to wait for the next chapter to find out what happens. That's just cruel! Everyone has been waiting for this for SO long. SO LONG. And now. . .
More waiting. You know, I may just go and check for rotting fruit and veg right now. It sounds like a fair suggestion to me. 10/10Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks for reviewing again! :D
Wow, I inspired a victory dance? I am floored. That's amazing. And I think I can allay your fears and say that it's NOT a daydream. Whether anything comes of it, of course, is a closely guarded secret, but it's not a daydream.
And yes, I admit, I enjoy inflicting cliffies on you. They're just so much fun! (For authors, at least.) And enough other people have thrown rotting vegetation at me so you can safely assume me covered.
Oh, poor silly Laura. She shoots herself in the foot every single time and she doesn't even know it! Very frustrating to watch.Author's Response: Hi again! Thanks for the review! :D
Yes, very frustrating. To be honest I'm a little surprised that no one has strangled me yet. However I do promise that she'll wake up eventually. Just not saying when.
cheers, Mel Report Review
Awesome. I'd totally missed the connection between Bertram Aubrey and the detention Harry reads about in book numero 6 until I read your authors note. Its almost unbelievable how much attention you pay to detail!
And I loved the ending. Haha. "I'd just spent the best part of an hour and a half holding hands with Sirius Black."
Classic.Author's Response: Thanks Ugly_Duckling!
Well, Laura is often quite oblivious to things, but I couldn't make her so clueless as to not notice that, now, could I? I mean, an hour and a half? It'd be hard not to notice. At least, I think it would be.
And yes, Bertram. You may have noticed that I pulled out every bit of canon from that era that I could find and included it somehow, and this was how the Bertram Aubrey thing worked for me. I'm glad you appreciate my efforts though! *beams*
Thanks again, Mel Report Review
I have little sympathy for Lucius but I still find the whole idea utterly harrowing and I feel so bad for Draco and Narcissa.
Public execution is barbaric and you've really done alot to capture that.Author's Response: Yes, I do have a hard time sympathizing with him, but he cared for his family, I think, and they cared for him, so I really wanted to show that. And I completely agree about public execution, but I think the wizarding world is a bit showy (but then again, we can be, too).
Thanks for the lovely review. :) Report Review
Beautiful. Parts of it were like poetry.Author's Response: Thanks so much! :D Report Review
What?! You mean that's IT? *screams at the computer manically*
But it was so good! I really loved it and was planning to put it on my favourites this very moment :( I thought it would be so cool to see it pop up on my page every time its updated and now I find its "THE END".
. . .
CURSES! . . . . . .I think I may go and sob uncontrollably into the sofa.
So touching, especially the end. I loved seeing Sirius' transformation from a shy scared supposed-to-be-Slytherin, to the confident Marauder and Gryffindor we all know and love.
I'm well bummed out now. 10/10 for the whole story! xAuthor's Response: Thank you so, so much! I'm sorry there's not more but it was really just supposed to be a snippet, a sort of prelude to my fics set later on. If you liked it, read The Spreading Of Evil - that's in Sirius and James' sixth year. :-) Report Review
Painfully short! I really liked it though, don't get me wrong. I loved the ending- although I don't know if my interpretation is the correct one. Everyone is out of the way playing quidditch while Hermione had alone time with Harry doing 'homework'.
Which is why Friday is her day :)
Ha. Poor Ginny.Author's Response: actually, the next day is the quidditch game harry missed because of the detention with snape- the game that ended with ginny catching the snitch and then falling victorious into harry's arms. so poor hermione, really. glad you enjoyed it :) Report Review
Another good chapter. I really like this story :)Author's Response: Thanks! I'll update soon. :-) Report Review
Almost painfully too short! I'm itching for the next chapter, utterly frustrated. I've favourited this- and I hope therefore that the next update will follow through quickly.Author's Response: Hah! It's just the prologue, the normal chapters are much longer. I hope you like them too! Report Review
Umm, not to be a total know it all, but James is pureblood isn't he?
Anyway, great story so far!Author's Response: Thanks Ugly_Duckling :-) As far as I understand it, being a pureblood just means your parents are a witch and wizard (as explained in Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets). Harry's considered pureblood even though his mother is Muggle born, he's never called a Mudblood but she is. How pureblood you are is a different thing. At least that's how I interpreted it, I could be wrong. Report Review
Jeez. Drama much Sophie?
I really like it :), nice little quote from Jumper I see. Hmmm, I see a 10/10 so far. Hurry up and update! UPDATE!
xAuthor's Response: Bah.
Yes what a good song :)
Well, after years of watching teen dramas I think its safe to say I know what i'm writing ;)

Oh my god Soph. This is actually really good.

I can see you have a lot of faith in me oh wondrous writer.
I have a feeling i spelt wondrous wrong...

My eyes are burning with tears.Author's Response: Aw. *hands Duckling a tissue*
I hope they're the good kind of sad tears, like when you watch Titannic and the Notebook.
Thank you very much for reading!

Good god is that it?
ANA! That was so frustratingly short! I can't believe you made me wait for this for so long only to give me a tiny snippet of a chapter :(
Mind you, that snippet was bloody fantastic writing, as per usual. I kind of hate you for it.
Dear me, this cycle is going to start all over again. *sigh*
Its snowing. I just thought I'd mention this fact because in my town this is the equivilent of a small phenomenom. In my town it never ever snows.
So yeah. Wow. SNOW. I am amazed. Its so pretty. And oh so cold.
Update soon bitch :P 10/10 xXxXxX Report Review
Oh Darling Remy!
Of course its tragic for Haley, but worse, so much worse for Remus. Emma makes me laugh with her matchmaking ways and really, James sulking over the cancelled match like a little boy! So CUTE!
And god, could Sirius and Kirsty misunderstand each other any more thoroughly? I hate that Debbie Swain, stupid TART.
TART I SAY!
. . .
Yeah. I'm in a weird mood. I feel kind of aggressive. Grrr, its what comes of nursing a broken heart.
10/10 as always dearest. I don't think you need a beta, this was absolutely fabulous without one
x Report Review
Oh my god.
You really do take the cake at creating misunderstandings between the love interests of your stories.
This will make for lots of awkward feeling and aplogies in the next few chapters- always fun to read! :)
Poor Sirius. I loved that bit at the end, where you describe his fear of being nothing other than a face. . .brilliantly done Ana.
And I loved the personification of the ceiling too. Absolutely fabulous.
I could not breathe for laughing. Rather hysterically.
Its like your writing a funnier, more original and sophisticated kind of Bridget Jones.
10/10 dearest- hope you had a fantastic Christmas. . . Report Review
Why do you not create longer fabulous updates?
I mean, its just NOT LONG ENOUGH. It needs to kind of stretch on forever. . .Y'know?
I have literally lost my mind. 17 yesterday babes, learning to drive in a few weeks. Eek.
I am not the sort of person who should be allowed in the drivers seat. Bit like Janelle really.
Loved it. Bless Regulus, made me laugh when you said about him wiping his mouth and stuff. Poor Nell. My heart crumples for her.
SIRIUS IS A BIG FAT LIAR!
But I guess he does at least know her well enough by know- what with the whole Eli Yanover thing. Bless the ankle God.
Anyways, got to be off. Have a lovely Christmas babes
xAuthor's Response: Whoo Happy BIRTHDAY! hahaha, we get our liscense when we turn 16 here. crazy huh? Anyway dear god, you are the road? should we alert the traficking people? haha. Congratulations!! Sexy Seventeen. I'm giving you a huge hug right now fyi. And do not worry I have definitely created a much longer update so hold on tight dear. AND happy holidays! I hope santa, jesus, whatever, get you whatever you want! These are rocky economic times however. ahahaha. But thanks so much for your lovely review and I miss youuu!
Very very funny :)
I wish it had carried on though! I didn't want it to end!Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D Report Review
Glad that got sorted. Loved the whole sticks up bum coming out and hitting shindig (am in a hurry- trying to write a ten page english lit essay which is due tomorrow but keep sneaking onto this site to check updates. . .)
God I love Regulus's pov; bless his little cotton socks.
Very very funny. Hate rushing through reviews, but like I said. . . Bugger that you took so long to update- expecting sooner updates now or ELSE
10/10 as always
x Report Review
What?! Is this an update I see? I think I'm seeing things.
Christ woman, where the flipping heck have you been? (yeah I remember the whole gallomping off to Cambridge bit. . .did you have a nice time?)
I loved this chapter; I pretty much felt James' enthusiasm. YAY! No more moping or lovesickness! I loved Kirsty's 'perfect man' requirements- I'm still laughing when I think about it. And poor Sirius; she really does under-estimate him :(
Gah. Emma is so figety regarding matchmaking. I can totally relate to that. But I think it is most definately James who made me laugh the most this chapter- and it was a nice touch making Peter have the idea. I love that you haven't made him into a weak, snivelling horrible lit person like every other author on this site has- I mean he must have started out half way decent to be a Gryffindor mustn't he?
*sigh* And now your going to take forever to update again aren't you? Growl. Not happy about that. I hope you had a great summer my friend, because you have neglected me and this story painfully.
I expect you to make it up to me- and get Sirius and Kirsty together SOON.
OR ELSE :P
adios dios (what does dios actually mean?)
x x x
oh yeah almost forgot. 10/10
As alwaysAuthor's Response: I know, I know, I'm terrible for leaving you in such a lurch! I will come back properly soon I promise, when I sort myself out lol. I had a great time thank you very much! A very busy summer to say the least lol.
Glad you enjoyed the chapter after such a long wait, it's good to know that I didn't disappoint after such a long absence.
Yeah, bless our dear Jamesie! I empathise with him too. Hehe, glad you found the 'perfect man' requirements funny, it was fun to write.
Strangely enough, I'm actually beginning to enjoy writing Peter, something I never thought would happen eek! How the hell am I gonna have the heart to turn him evil now :(?
I'll try my best to not make you wait too long for the update. Chapter 17 is actually written now. It's just 18 I have to get a move on with.
Can't make any promises on the Kirsty and Sirius front though :P!
Thank you very much, I've missed your reviews, I have to say!

Good god woman.
She's being seduced by ankles? Shy and awkward ankles? I think you are getting more and more bonkers---it was very funny. And your right; it is ABOMINABLY short! But I forgive you once again because it was hilariously entertaining. Which is good because I've just been horrifically ill and am still suffering from the dregs of it.
"I have a salivary gland disorder and because of that I don’t produce enough saliva, so really the probability of my elbow soaking in my own drool is evidently false"
Ummm, thats something I would always think to say. Like if someone wrongly accused me of farting in class or something horrible, it would actually cross my mind to say I have a condition which meant I could not. Ever. Therefore I could not have done it.
The difference between me and Janelle however, is that I would never be insane enough to actually voice that aloud, let alone in a crowded classroom.
Oh dear, reading it through is bringing tears of laughter to my eyes. You always manage to cheer me up. Thank you!
But now I must love you and leave you until your next update (unless of course you finally review some of my stories? please? Pretty please with a cherry on top?)
love love love from the crazy oneAuthor's Response: I don't know about you, but I've definitely looked at a guys' ankles and thought, wow, not even going to lie, probably not as turned on by them as Janelle is, but on few occcasions I find it quite attractive. You call me bonkers, I think ,yes, spot on. Also I am terribly sorry about how short it was, I meant to write more but it was getting late and I thought an update short, or long, would be better. And what is this about being sick? Gosh, hope you feel better, I've recently contracted the flu from my best friend so I feel your pain, unfortunately. Get better yeah? I'm cyberly giving you flowers and a get well card but am naturally patting my back for making you feel little better. Laughter is the best medicine blah blah blah innit? haha. Anyway love, get better, and I WILL REVIEW YOUR STORIES!!! Actually I'll be off and doing that right now.
love love love love from the equally crazy one Report Review
Just to let you know I actually read this a couple of days ago---but I did not have time to review! I KNOW! Its shameful but thats the consequences of GCSE exams and 24 hour revision (ack. What a waste of time.) And I have a very limited amount of time to review now (I hate exams).
BUT 10/10 as usual my friend. YOu fail to disappoint and always make me laugh with your witty engaging writing and I just generally love this story and I love you.
I'm also slightly hungover so yeah. If this seems like i'm not maknig sense its probably because i'm not making sense, and i just realized that i never make sense anyway when I'm mostly sober so this should be crystal clear.
Arg. Just confused myself. Too shattered to type. But I KNEW I'd heard that Northy song SOMEWHERE!
I LOVE A KNIGHTS TALE! RIP Heath Ledger! *bursts into erratic bouts of sobbing*
Oh god. SO much flirtation. And fun and insaneyness. I miss the days of never knowing what the guy you like thinks about you. :(
I've got to go now. I think I might be sick. And thats probably too much information. oh well.
BLOODY WELL UPDATE SOON. (Feel free to laugh at my state of mind in this review. God knows I will).
xAuthor's Response: Don't worry about it, I know what you mean, I have about 10 exams in the next two weeks, so i'm furiously revising too! Hope yours go okay though, I'm sure they will! Hehe, I think I like u when ur hungover u profess ur undying love for me and the story - thankyou! It's always nice to hear thatur loved, and incidentally I love you and ur reviews *is pretty sure she's not hungover*.
I'm curious how u manage 2 be hungover when ur supposed to be revising *stern look* not that I can say much as I sit here doing bugger all - have been out in the sun all morn revising hist though :P.
Hehe glad you liked the song, and I agree RIP Heath :'(.
Hehe gotta love the flirtation! I should be updating in around 2-3 weeks as both me and my betas are busy with exams, I can assure u that it's written though, I've started chapter 16 actually *dances*.

I agree with the fact that evil always seems to be one dimensional. So well done with this. I think you summed up Bellatrix perfectly in the first chapter; loving a man, who could not, would not love, who was "barely a man at all".
Amazing. I'd give you a perfect ten just for that! Report Review
