Review #1, by Cirque Du Freak 

4th June 2013:
POOR ARCHIE BUT THAT WAS HILARIOUS AND I AM NOT SORRY. He's so stressy in this chapter even Hugo noticed, aw. (': I just found that great that you pointed that out, and yeah I think Hugo noticing that there's something wrong is a pretty new low as far as Archie's life goes. But that's alright, he got cookies out of it and a reputation for being a cross-dressing Squib, but we'll glance over that.

I SEE SO MANY CLUES NOW THAT I'VE READ THE END OVER THIS PIPS. I never noticed before as much and now I can see it - hindsight is a horrible thing, especially when you miss really obvious rubbish.

Also Lily really annoys me - she's like a fly you want to swat but keeps moving out the way and still coming at your face for not reason.

Totally shipping that Tabby/Johnny. Tanny? Jabby? Tohny? Jobby? Prefer Tanny.

Haha I loved the plan about Archie giving up magic for a month, if I was a witch I donít think I would be able to do that. Poor old Neville too, I do feel bad for him as heís such a forlorn character who always ends up in mishaps.

Ooh I just remembered something; I donít think you ever mentioned which house Archie was in. Iím going to go with Slytherin as he has not so nice thoughts about the students at times or Ravenclaw because he seems quite smart.

This part really cracked me up ĎďNo, but well... thatís your last warning. I hope you learn from it.Ē

ďSure,Ē Kevin said, dropping his potato peeler onto the desk and folding his arms, ďlike a Ravenclaw on a Sunday.Ē Considering Iím a Claw and my revision tends to peak by Thursday, I would say that was fairly true :P

Poor Archie that class really didnít seem to go well at all. Though itís more amusing on my behalf, if they were sitting there getting on with their work it would be nowhere near as fun to read :P

So they get to experience a food tech lesson then? Mine were nowhere near as eventful as thereís was, but then again, I actually knew how to use the muggle cooking things which probably made a big difference. I was feeling all proud of Archie finally cracking down on the discipline front, then for him to realise that he didnít have wand with him was sad.

Aw poor Archie needing comfort food, at least he won award and that should cheer him up :í) Another great chapter :D

Hello Helen :) I always feel bad for not reviewing, so yeah... here I am. Muggle Studies always puts a smile on my face, and makes me laugh quietly to myself like a nutter... One of my favourite bits was this: '"What would happen if you put your hand in a toaster?" // "I donít know, Lockhart, why donít you just try it?" Archibald snapped' It sounds like something either my parents or our head of DT would say :P I think it's even funnier just how clueless they are as to muggle things, like you have to wonder where their common sense kicks in :P Archie is just so funny in that sarcastic way of his, I just csn't help but love him, and secretly wish he was my teacher :P And the end line of 'Sometimes, even cross-dressing-squib-teachers needed to comfort eat.' was perfect! Keep writing this :)

Author's Response: Hi Julia!

Don't worry about not reviewing! I always used to be terrible about it myself and I'm just honoured that you're here now. I think that has to be one of my favourite lines (although I am a little intrigued) and ack... I love their utter cluelessness! It makes for such ffun :D

This is definately one of my favourite stories ever! You write this brilliantly and I love love love it!
I love Archibald so much, and I love all of his students, I feel so sorry for him sometimes but it's so funny to read about his struggles as a Muggle Studies teacher.
I love the bet he has going on though and how he said Silencio without a wand, causing the students to ask if he was a squib. Hilarious! I wonder how long that will go on for?
Brilliant chapter! :D

Author's Response: oh, I reckon the squib questioning continued on for a SIGNIFICANT amount of time. I feel like I need to re-mention it soon for that extra affect. Thanks for the heads up on that one!

And yes, i do feel sorry for him... but he loves it really. In a world weary 'why do I doo this' sort of way. He loves it :D

HEEELENN. Now jogging back to January from wherever I last left off. Archie is a looper.
Poor squibs; can't even win musically.

Ohoho and in corner, we have Michael Corner, high roller. Do note, there is banzai and bonsai, and I think you mean the former unless he's shouting about a tree. But you know me; I love bonsais. And omg Neville you are as precious as ever. All of them, really, because gawd it's like they never left Hogwarts. But then boys don't ever grow up until the age of 36.

by the look of the serious sexual tension conveyed through that pat on the arm, young love was still blooming snorting haaa Archie you bitter ol' coot.

I had to look up Roderigo because I never read Othello, and I felt the references whizzing over my head. AND YES ARCHIE/KEVIN BROMANCE PLZ I feel a bit of the bitter ol' cootness deep in Kevin's back chat. He'll be yelling at kids to get off his lawn (desk?) in no time.

When I really think about it, Archie is a rather terrible professor. Can't keep his students under control, assigns homework that doesn't get done, wants to kill them in deep fat fryers... I feel like I should have noticed this earlier, but I was too busy adoring him.

HOUSE ELVES. Ahh, I love House Elves; they're so precious. Theyíve been given strict instructions not to do all the work for you, so it would be nice if you didnít cause a House Elf order-confusion breakdown in the next hour. Looove.

Yes Archie, keep all the students away from the fire. Just candles - no, not even candles.

concerning both on the level that student thought he was on the edge of a mental break down, and the fact that Hugo genuinely diverted enough attention away from the teenage norms Ė sex and food Ė to consider the mental state of his Muggle Studies Professor I THINK THIS IS SWEET in you know, a disturbing sort of way I suppose, but IT IS. It's like teacher-student bonding over breakdowns.

Oh my god that scene. WHAT HAVE YOU COOKED UP MICHAEL CORNER AND CO. Dettie and her partner in crime, Winky, switched over to major clean up mode almost instantaneously See, they are so adorable. I can see this utter chaos and them, also in chaos but futilely trying to clean up said other chaos and then taking the time to think of Archie and hand him a cookie.

And oh how he needs that cookie.

Oh my god, Helen. You know what I just realised? Archibald is me. I am Archibald.

This is exactly my teaching style. I'm so sarcastic with my pupils it's unreal, except that they don't answer back because sarcasm is lost on French kids. Just... I was just reading this and relating to everything he felt. Damn, is this good or bad? Good for you, because now I can say with assurance that this is realistic! But bad that I'm like a grumpy man who's just been dumped. Wow.

Anyway, this was hilarious as usual. The pupils are a delight to read about, though I'm sure not to teach. Lots of funny lines, and I love that he was bet not to use magic and yet that's caused him no end of troubles with his pupils. And then there's the elf that thinks he's a woman...

I loved it. Sorry it's been so long. Merry Christmas!

The last line was the best, it made me burst out laughing. Well done! I loved the newest chapter, can't wait for the next!
