Review #1, by Elf_ears13 

1st August 2007:
I love the way you made constant references to his house and the way it shaped him, because with Ravenclaw I think it's tricky - they're the quick-witted ones, but not necessarily the smartest, and I think that would be a hard blow to deal with (well, I know so - I deal with it). They have all the expectations to be good in all their classes, so when Hermione outdoes everyone else ... well, I'm just glad you incorporated that into the story. His brother and Michael really made him come alive as his own character, because I think comparing oneself to others is very human. I like that this wasn't too generic, that it couldn't fit other characters quite the same. I especially loved the part when he decided that he wouldn't be happy with Ginny anyway - no matter how much I like Ernie/Hannah, I do sort of like the idea of him with someone, being content not based on how much she furthered his appearance or even if she was with him. His little moments with Harry were great, and showed a lot of his character; I loved that even though he wanted to, he didn't say anything to him.

The first paragraph especially summed up what was so great about this: Terry is very much a filler character in the HP books, but in this story, you truly captured him and made him much more. Love the ending reflection. Kudos to you!

Author's Response: You've put such a smile on my face! I'm so amazed at the standard of every single fic in this collection that it's flattering to hear you giving me similar praise. I too actually prefer Terry; he seems like such a nice guy but for some reason he's never really explored in canon. I'm really glad that everyone seems to relate to him, because he is just the normal, background person that we've all been at some point. Thanks for reviewing and I'm really pleased you liked it so much!

As I get further along this collection of stories, I find myself using and reusing all the same adjectives: beautiful, stunning, heart-warming, heart-wrenching, wonderful, fantastic, excellent. You fic was every one of these. For some reason, though I have no idea why, I have always, when reading the books, preferred Terry Boot to Michael Corner. Your fic has finally given me reasons, you produces a wonderful, sympathetic character that is so easy to understand and relate to. Very well done. 10/10. ~ andy x x

Review #5, by Noblevyne 

14th October 2006:
Ooohh, very meta, a background character with a background personality. Very Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Great descriptions of a boy who is so casually forgettable noticing all those around him. He's so...okay, never angry, never overflowing with joy, he just drifts along so calmly, accepting of his place and I really, really liked that - because it seperates him, which is ironic, really. His standing up at the end of the story was a very powerful moment and wrapped everything up so well.

Author's Response: What an awesome review. :-) It's nice to get a different perspective on things - I never really thought about how his 'casual forgettability' (love that, by the way) makes him unique, but it's true! There's so many big characters in HP that it's refreshing to write about someone like Terry. I'm really glad you liked the end, because it was really difficult! Anyway, thanks for reviewing and I'm pleased you enjoyed it!

Review #6, by PropMaster_staff 

13th October 2006:
Oh man, could I ever RELATE to your Terry! I, too, have been a very unremarkable person, always content to sit on the sidelines. You've shown us that a person can be quite content in this station in life, and doesn't have to feel like he's selling himself short. We don't all have to be firebrands. Yet when things get very serious, when real strength is needed, he doesn't hesitate to step forward and be counted amoung the brave. How marvelous! Thank you for this quality piece.

Author's Response:

You know, one of my favourite things to hear in a review is that someone can relate to the characters. Terry is such a refreshingly normal person, isn't he? I admit I didn't really want to write him because he was so normal, but in the end it was just nice to try and show that he's as special as anyone else in the HP series. I'm really pleased you could relate to him and that you enjoyed it, and thank you so much for faithfully reviewing everything!
