Review #1, by Elf_ears13 

31st July 2007:
How clever! I always wished there was something more to know about Binns' life, but I suppose his death turned out to be more interesting. I really loved how you kept the parchment secret, and that even Lautter wasn't able to figure it out. The tone was convincing as a reminiscent old man, and I felt so sorry for him when he had to choose which door - I think that said a lot about his character, that he was willing to go back to help Dumbledore and everyone else. The last line really sounds like he's resigned to his fate, but it's still sad; I think I've gained a new respect for the most boring teacher. =)

Wow, that was brilliant!I love how you took Binns’ seemingly boring character and turned him into the man(or the ghost) behind Dumbledore’s success with Grindewald. I got the History of Magic position for the rest of everybody’s life Lol, I like how you changed the phrase ‘the rest of my life’, seeing he’s not alive anymore. =P Great work!

2nd February 2007:
I usually refuse to review if there is something major in a story I read that I do not like. I just read the one about Tom Riddle, and while I loved the writing and the way it flowed, I hated that Tom had anything to do with Myrtle heading to the bathroom. I felt she wasn't important enough for him to take his time with, and that their meeting in that bathroom was completely by accident. But since I did love the writing, I had to review, so I just left out the part I didn't like. Then I felt like the review was fake.
(Circling the airport of the point, allow me to land the plane). The reason I mentioned all of that is because I don't want this review to seem fake, but I really wanted to comment on what I did like about it.
First of all, I think the bit about the paper was much too vague, and needed explaining better. How did he know it was there? What did it say?
However, I expected the one on Binns to be boring, and it wasn't, despite that. I like the idea of there being more to his death than most know. I can really see how Dippet might have been one less prone to take action, since he was so stupid in respect to his opinion of Tom Riddle. Maybe stupid is a strong word, if so, I apologize.
Over all, despite the part I didn't like, I still really enjoyed this, and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't one bit boring. Since his death had hidden meaning, you would expect him to have a death day party, since he does in fact know he is dead in this fic. Well done, and I gave it 9/10. I hope this wasn't offensive.

Review #5, by Jessi_Rose

Dobby, I absolutely LOVED this story of Binns! He's a character that has an ever elusive background with so many different possibilities and you definitely picked a good one and made it completely and utterly fabulous. I am so in love with Binns right now (go figure, heh, a ghost..)! I love how you brought Grindewald into it and made Binns into the role of a Gryffindor (almost, right?) He's brave enough to stand up against a coworker. :)

Author's Response: Hey, Jessi! I'm so glad you liked it. I think this was one of my most creative stories to date, which might be something bad if you make it that way. =) I guess you being in love with Binns now, Sirius is open...**runs off to find the greatest Black!**

Thanks for the review!

A very interesting take on how Binns became a ghost - plausable in some ways too, because there are so many secrets in the wizarding world that we don't even have a hint of. I thought it was well written and that it flowed smoothly from the present to past and back! Great Job! - Jenn

Author's Response: Thanks, Jenn! I'm glad you enjoyed it that much and I really did try hard on this one. Thanks, also, for contributing in this project. It wouldn't have been this great without your help!

This story is stunning, Dobby. Truly beautiful. Sometimes short reviews are the most meaningful - I hope that this is one of them. 10/10 ~ Andy x x

Author's Response: It sure is, Andy! And thanks for it!
