"...They arenít sharing you among themselves are they?"...lol, what a horrid person.

"Iíve never known anyone like him before with whom I could carry on an entire conversation without speaking a single word." I like this detail about Lupin and his facial expressions.

14th May 2008:
I hope Charlie's doing well, after all, burns and scars don't really sound all that great. I'm really glad that Kerri's getting along with Remus so well. He really doesn't deserve his place there, I'm glad to know that -unless you don't go canon- he will have a place at Hogwarts in two years time.
I am very sure she'll do absolutely great on her own. Though I do fear for Fenrir and Goyle a bit. Poor thing. She really does seem like the perfect target of sexual harrasment, you know. They need to throw Fenrir a bone. I hope she does well with being patient and such.

Author's Response: I'm going to stick with canon as much as I possibly can. The only non canon things will hopefully be some of Kerri's relationships (Snape having a sister, Voldemort two offspring, and Remus being her love interest). I'm even planning to keep most of the deaths at the end even though some of them are really going to hurt when that time comes.

So yes --- Remus will be teaching at Hogwarts in the third year. Kerri and Hagrid will be dividing Care of Magical Creatures students between them. He'll take Gryffindor and Slytherin and she'll take Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. What's going to be interesting at that time is that Snape will be furious about what's going on with Kerri and Remus and they'll all be stuck there at Hogwarts together.

You mention Goyle, who as I told Jessi the other day, has made me very proud. Nearly all of my reviewers told me that they absolutely hate him and also wrote in to cheer at the part where Kerri gets back at him. But between now and then, yes, she'll have a pretty hard time with him.

At this stage, Fenrir is just a pain. He's not as crazy yet as he will be by the sixth year when he attacks Bill Weasley. That means I have the fun of watching him go downhill. In this story he's just a complete jerk, but I have more plans for him in the sequel.

Review #4, by JLHufflepuff 

13th May 2008:
Wow! More lovely Remus for me to love on... I'm still in awe of how he keeps his head, and I feel just like Kerri does - that he totally doesn't deserve to be working where he does and putting up with crap and living in urine-smelling places... I thought it was so sweet that she side-along-apparated him home and "acknowledged his humanity." *squee and awww* I am seriously loving this even though it's not canon based. I've been sooo over that but just forgot to mention! :)

Also, Kerri is really starting to remind me of my best friend in college. Independent and working to support herself, kind of a harder type shell that protects a lot of sensitivity and caring, and issues that she wanted to hide... It makes me want to keep reading her story fo' shizzle.

ALSO, I love the way you introduced Gustav Goyle. I've found that making fun of OC Goyles is one of the most fun literary endeavors I've ever undertaken. I love the way Fenrir called him 'Fat-A' and Kerri thought mean insults about him.. HILARIOUS!

Author's Response: "I am seriously loving this even though it's not canon based." Coming from you I consider this a great compliment.

Remus is just a sweet guy, isn't he? The world needs more Remuses.

People really seem to hate Gustav Goyle in this story -- which I love because it shows that I've done a good job with him. When the time came for Kerri to get back at him I couldn't believe the number of reviewers who wrote looking forward to it and then cheering after it happened. When you have that many people comment on something, you know you've really landed it. Hopefully you too will also come to passionately despise Goyle....but I'm interested to see what everyone thinks about Lockhart who I'm getting ready to reintroduce again fairly soon. He's the one that I like making fun of.

Thanks for the review.

Review #5, by Bella_Portia 

9th March 2008:
Very good chapter -- held me reading when I was supposed to be working. Great picture of Goyle. You paint a realistic jerk boss. (Fenrir is Joe Pesci in Goodfellas, no? Useful but too dangerous and too nutty.) A lot of your elements are terribly intriguing, especially your (projected) use of Quirrell -- I'm really looking forward to seeing where that is going. Your description of him as being a member of the band, a beautiful singing voice, humanizes a character who is never too well dealt with. (And, considering he will bring her back in contact with dear old dad -- how interesting!)
Really liked the way you described the work environment.

Author's Response: The place where Kerri is working was strongly inspired by a place where I used to work. I've had my share of horrible bosses which accounts for my 'realistic' presentation of a 'jerk boss.'

Fenrir here is not as crazy as he his when we meet him in the sixth book. Kerri doesn't like him, but she doesn't really respect his capabilities yet either. She hasn't seen him at his worst, which I'm probably going to save for the second year.

Quirrell...he becomes more important as the story progresses. I wanted to humanize him a bit. I don't think people usualy spare him a second thought, and we know so little about him from canon that it's surprising that more fan fiction writers haven't jumped on it. Yes, he will bring her uncomfortably close to her father....later on there will be a pretty creepy scene where she's talking to Quirrell and later realizes that she wasn't really talking to Quirrell at all.

Thank you so much for your kind complements. If I've distracted you from work then I must be doing a good job.

Again lovely chapter. I just love Remus and Kerri in this story and their conversation, or how they manage to communicate just by body language. Now, Gargantua is funny, although not for them, obviously. Now, the Quirrell, who is he exactly, you have made me wonder...

The only thing I found a bit confusing is when Remus' mate invites him for a beer. I thought it had been Kerri. He appears to enter into the scene too suddenly. I do things like that without realising all the time too. I think all you need is to say that he entered the room and to qualify his speech just on that ocassion by saying something like, Basil said.

You keep me interested all the time, well done.

Author's Response: Quirrel is important to the story. He's Kerri's old friend and eventually he does respond to her and she watches as he goes downhill.

Hmm...I'll have to go back and check that. Thanks for pointing it out.

And thanks for the review.

Review #7, by Richter Vans 

2nd February 2008:
Wow, just when I started to get bored the story gives a big upheld of excitement, XD, It was impressive the Crowdie room, XD, I could picture everything very good!! Fenrir was a relieve in that moment, And I would have him on my side for the time being. XD.

And the stuff about Quirrel. Ingenious. You give a completely perspective on why did Quirrel went bad, and I would love to see you write a one-shot about it.

Quirrel might have discovered that Kerri was Voldemorts daughter and went to look for him, In a strange sick way to prove his love to her, XD. Just a theory. :P...

Author's Response: You should see the part I'm writing right now. Kerri has gone back to Hogwarts to visit with Quirrel and is totally creeped out by him.

I think Quirrel's main thing is that he's been good all his life, helped out other people, and been under appreciated for it. If he helps Voldemort return to power, he can be the part of something huge and no one will dare to pick at him anymore. He's just sick of being good and quiet, and taken for granted.

He does genuinely like Kerri though, and eventually he starts trying to recruit her.

And you were getting bored? Which part bored you? I'm not offended -- I appreciate the criticism. It would be helpful to know which part you thought was boring.
