Jessi! This is so inspirational and darling! I love the Quidditch talk - Wizenscout, the big wands, hit like a ton of bludgers - when combined, I really felt like I was looking into Hooch's memories. Her tone was just right, and I love how this explains why she'd be happy to, as some might say, take a step down in her career; when this is all taken into mind, of course she'd want to teach the basics of flying. *huggles* You're amazing.

Aww, how sweet! I love how you wrote Hooch, and how she captained her team. The description on the match was brilliant too and I love how you wrote her last speech. Brilliant, Jessi!

You know, I stared at this page for about ten minutes, then took a break before I started to read again! That’s how distracted I got by the song lyrics! Hehe! However, as I got into the story, I could hear the song playing quietly behind everything she said. I don’t really like songfics much, but this song fitted perfectly with you story. You really put across the message that life is more about enjoying yourself than it is about necessarily succeeding. Freedom rocks, doesn’t it? Very well done here, Jessi - you did really good! :o) 10/01! ~ andy x x

Author's Response: Andy, trust me, I don't blame you. I know songfics are hard for a lot of people to get into. I tend to write them often, but I realize that there is a flow interruption in most of them, that really clash horribly with the story. This one was my exception... I'm really thrilled to hear that you could actually hear the song behind the words -- 'twas my goal! I'm very happy you got the freedom message that was entwined in the fic. I really wanted to set a point (especially to Jay) that even though most of us here on HPFF are aspiring authors, we're here for the love of writing and we stay because of the quality of people. Like life - exactly what Hooch's life has shown us in this fic. :) Thank you so much for the great review, dear!! *hug*

How beautiful! The lyrics of the song fit the mood perfectly and I think you managed to define a part of Madam Hooch's soul in your writing. I found myself longing to have a chance to fly beside her and live the feeeling that she discribed to her team. To be free - to feel the wind rushing around me. Oh what a glorious feeling it would be to touch the clouds! - Jenn

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Jenn! I'm so glad you liked the lyrics that were scattered throughout this fic. You know, when I first took up Rolanda, I had such issues with keeping my mind off of this song and made a joke to the girls that I would use R. Kelly's song for it, just for the cheesy factor...and it's amazing how powerful that song played in my ears asa I was writing about her. It broke me from the monotony of writing a Quidditch fic and really pushed me into writing something more meaningful and, as you have told me, moving. I'm really happy that it had that effect on you. Thank you so much for the review!
