Review #1, by knicoles 

26th July 2013:
“Hold out Kerri.” said Basil “Don’t give it up for anything less than a corner office up front.”

I also want to mention that I'm liking the journal entries, especially since they are the body of the story, but I am especially liking all the letters, too. This is surprising since I thought they'd be distracting, but they mesh well with the story arc and they clue you into the goings-on of the characters in general but also to the overall HP time frame, too. I especially like Snape's letters :)

I love the part when Kerri is telling Severus her views on Potions. I've been trying to tell people that it would be easy if you just follow the instructions for years!

Author's Response: It seems like it would be like following a recipe. Just pay attention. (This means you, Harry!!)

Thank you very much for putting previews of the next chapter at the end of each chapter. It's really nice for when I have to stop reading.

Author's Response: Really? Some people actually complained that it was distracting. I did eventually quit doing it because I no longer write far enough ahead that I have completed scenes to preview. I wish that I did.

Aw, yes. Guys can be pervy little breadsticks. They just have to make some comments regularly or they wouldn't be the same. Poor ickle Remus, he shouldn't be in so much pain, he deserves way better! It, indeed, isn't fair how the Ministry treats them, they're people too, well, living creatures and stuff. Urgh, Goyle, I don't like him. Makes me shudder. Some guys need to be taught manners. I feel sorry for her, I probably wouldn't have had the patience to keep cool and such. I kind of like the idea of werewolf cubs. I read that someone said werewolf cubs didn't exist in the books, but not long ago I read that JKR mentioned it and I can't help but picture cute little wolfies. Let Remus and Kerrie have little wolfies. I have a bad feeling that Goyle might go worse.

Author's Response: It's going to take me forever to answer all of these --- not that I'm complaining! At this rate I'll have 200 reviews in no time.

Let's see....Goyle, everyone hates him. I'm very proud of him. I couldn't believe the number of people who wrote reviews telling me they couldn't wait for Kerri to get revenge.

As for "little wolfies", I do plan for two of their children to inherit that from Remus, but that won't be for a very lo-o-o-ong time.

Review #5, by Bella_Portia 

12th March 2008:
This chapter actually made me cheat. I began reading it on a lunch break, realized I wouldn't have time to finish before an appointment, so I skipped ahead to see what Snape's reaction was to Kerri's letter. Obviously, I found your letters quite engrossing.
I thought you painted a vivid picture of Remus approaching his time. Again, and as in so many places, I was impressed with how much thought went into it.
The one part that threw me a bit was the "Gargantua" sequence. Overall, I thought it was very well written.

However, there were a few places I found a little confusing. As where Kerri wrote, "Just because they might have an illness or a little troll blood in them, doesn’t mean they should have to suffer harassment and abuse." I thought Remus was the one with the illness and Gargantua was the one with the Troll blood, so it seemed odd that she was treating them as equivalent.

And, where she said, "I wonder if Severus has said anything in my favor to the Goyles? No matter what he says, they always had the appearance of being pretty close knit. I’d like to think that might be the reason for the sudden attention I received…it’s better than the alternative. " (Memo to Goyles: when you sexually harass your employees, be sure not to pass over Kerri. You might hurt her feelings.)
Okay, kidding.
Which I would not do had I not enjoyed the chapter a lot.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. Your reviews are so encouraging. I went for MONTHS before I got a single review on this story, and then all of a sudden they started shooting up. (Due largely to Morgana, of course).

Now, for the part that confused you. Kerri is referring to the workers in the warehouse, which are a colorful lot. There are werwolves, vampires, hags, and half trolls working for the Goyles. (The Goyles themselves don't necessarily have troll blood --- that's just a rumor that Snape kindly decided to repeat). Maybe I should have phrased it more clearly.

Again -- thank you so much for your complements. They're helpful as well as encouraging and I always look forward to them.

I'm dying to find out Sevvy's response to Kerri's letter. I bet he gets annoyed whether he wishes to show it or not and poor Kerri, first getting harassed by Lockhart and now by Goyle, good God! I think your characterisation of Remus is really, really good by the way.

I'll try to read the next one in a bit. I'm nearly getting there...

Author's Response: Poor Snape...he's in such an uncomfortable position. He's trying so hard to be nice.

I absolutely love Remus --- I was a complete wreck at the end of DH. That's when I knew I absolutely had to go ahead and write this thing.

And yes, you've nearly caught up with me. I just submitted a new chapter last night but you know how long it takes sometimes for them to go through. (That chapter was a fun one too)

Thanks for reviewing.

Review #7, by Richter Vans 

2nd February 2008:
OK, in this last part of the chapter, you started to write about what’s she wrote in her diary one day, but then started to explain what happen the next day without change the date. Careful, this sort of writing is tricky.

The rest is just fine.

Richter Vans.

Author's Response: Thanks for catching it. Keeping track of dates is a real pain sometimes.
