Im all for it. said Augustus. Id love to be able to kick dementor ass. Do dementors have asses? They must, but somehow its hard to imagine.
Haha, this'd be the type of inane question to float through my mind. Again, love the band mate scenes.

Oh, letter fight with Snape! He's like one of those kids that about tell you everything, but when you're on the edge of your seat they go "but I can't tell you, it's a secret" and you're ready to tear your hair out, hehe. It's funny how reading more Snapes that I have more of an image of him as a teenager, hehe.
I'm curious, I have a feeling something's going to happen at that party. Maybe for the better. Yes, Lockhart is gone! Finally, she can have some peace on that front. Pssht, the whimp really. How the furk could he have blamed Tonks for it, when she said Kerri's friends are werewolves, that doesn't mean she is, urgh. Hmm, I like the idea of having them teach the band, things might come from it, good things. That way REmus and her spend more time together too, eeh! Lovely, they're such a funny bunch.

Author's Response: Well, Snape is torn between his knowledge that Kerri could be very helpful to him and the promise he made to Dumbledore. Dumbledore trusted him and took him in when no one else would have and he doesn't want to betray that.

Yes...the party is one of the more entertaining scenes although it's brief because Kerri leaves out of fear of being arrested. Hey -- Tonks knows how to throw a party.

Review #4, by Bella_Portia 

19th March 2008:
The letters between Severus and Kerri were extremely interesting. They really illuminated the mystery surrounding Quirrell. The mildly heated letter from Kerri, and the letter with the clues (which seemed to have an affectionate undertone, albeit a cerebral type of affection), suggested that these two were fortunate to have one another.

I loved the baby dragon.

Good old Lockhart. You did a great job recreating the impression of a Lockhart book. Of course, he's a pretty good writer (although, more likely he has a competent ghostwriter). The detail about the hair potion showed you really know your Guilderoy. And, in that same section overall, the dialogue with Remus was terrific; I admire how natural your dialogue is.

Kerri is going to have her hands full.

Author's Response: I'm pleased that you like my letters between Snape and Kerri because I know that you tend to appreciate the darker characters. Yes, Kerri and Snape are warming to one another. They care about each other, even admire each other's various talents. They are lucky to have one other, because as she often points out, they are 'uniquely equipped to understand each other,' because of the common problem they share. Unfortunately, the relationship between them is still new and a bit shaky. It wouldn't take much for them to fight and stop speaking to each other again. (Which will happen temporarily toward the end of the story. An immensely fun scene to write because they go bursting into Dumbledore's office, arguing all the way).

Gilderoy is such an idiot and so fun to play with. Later when he publishes "Wanders With Werewolves" there's a description of some passages from that book and Kerri about laughs herself sick. I had a lot of fun coming up with them. Wait till you see the garish flowers he sends too. It was a challenge to come up with a different one each time.

A long time ago in my first year English class, I had a teacher compliment me on my dialougue ability. Maybe it's because I usually have them more or less thought out before I even start writing. In that part -- particularly the part where Kerri and Remus are talking about Lockhart's book -- I wanted to bring out Remus's sense of humor. I wanted to show a touch of the old Marauder in him.

Thanks for reviewing.

Review #5, by morgana67 

26th February 2008:
I loved the letters between Kerri and Snape. You asked me before what I think of your characterisation of Snape. Well, I think he was very much in character when he told Kerri about how she may, like others suspect that he only wanted Quirell in trouble to get his job. He mistrusts people, he doesn't think people see the best in him, so yes, I think that's very him. Also when he says how he is privy to certain information. The way in which he says it, I think, is with a hint of superiority, which is very like him as well.

The only thing that could be debatable is whether he would open his heart to her enough to tell her that he never received a kind word from anyone of something of that ilk. Maybe he is disclosing his inner-self a little too much but then again, he never had a sister in canon, so we can never be completely sure.

I think the Quirell sub-plot is completely relevant, not a filler at all. In fact that's where I expect the most action to come from. Slughorn well, what a slimeball, as usual!

I like Kerri's ideas in terms of teaching the werewolves, very much like he DA.

I can understand Kerri not wanting to admit that her former friend may have gone to the dark side. I have a similar situation in the chapter I have just written and I think denial, at least at first, has to be the way forward.

Nice chapter and I look forward to the next one.

Author's Response: Thank you, that helps a lot.

Yes, now that you mention it, Kerri and her new students are kind of like Harry and the DA. Like those with the DA, these lessons will really begin to pay off in a few years.

I feel more confident about the rest of it now. I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time and not everyone is going to 'get' exactly what I'm trying to convey. One other person has complimented me on Snape's letters too. They're some of the most fun parts to write sometimes because every now and then his commentary on the other teachers and things can be viciously witty.

The Quirell thing I worried about a little bit because I thought that it might seem sort of tacked on. At least for a while there, there were only brief mentions of him in passing. Later on at Christmas she actually goes to visit him and again over Easter. There are also some flashbacks and things so there will be quite a bit more of him later. I had fun with those parts too because he's another of those characters that you don't learn anything about really in canon, so he's pretty much open for us fans to play with as much as we want.

Thanks a lot, Morgana !
