Review #1, by Elf_ears13 

31st July 2007:
I love this - the dialog sounds so perfectly conniving and evil yet innocent in an infuriating way, Fudge is excellent as a pushover who thinks he's in control, Umbridge is deluded to the extent that I almost, almost feel sorry for her and Percy's predicament just makes me want to shake some sense into him. I was definitely amused by Fudge's view of Shacklebolt, especially considering how the following three years eventually pan out for him.

Review #3, by Bittersweet Ending

I am amazed by this story. I love seeing this 'missing moment' of how Umbridge was picked, and although not making her seem particularly nice, seeing how she maneuvered not only Fudge, but the majority of the governors easily. I loved Percy's way of titling her, and his stuttering over his words, as well as the lack of trust Fudge puts in him.

No one makes me as angry as this evil witch does! You wrote her perfectly - and had me fuming. I loved how you also included Percy and Fudge...am I noticing a pattern? Excellent work! 10/10! ~ andy x x x

Author's Response: Andy, my feelings for Umbridge are mutual, and her manipulative tendancies drive me up a wall and I'd really love to do nothing more then curse her from here to the moon and back. I really don't like writing her any where neare as much as I do writing Moody, and it was a real learning experience writing this story for the staff because of that. I kept having to resist the urge to drop a hippogrifff on her or send her out to play with the centaurs again.

The reason I did my best to incorperate Percy and Fudge into the story is that I see them as being very similar to Dolores, in that they are both very ambitious people - though Fudge seems desperate to keep his power while Percy just wants power. The three of them together feed off each other and use each other to get what they desire, and without Percy and Fudge, I think the story would have been lacking that extra deminsion.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed this story as much as my other ones. Thank you so much for all of your reviews that you've given my stories! - Jenn
