I have read only two chapters of this and I am already hooked.Your writing technique is flawless and vocabulary large, The plot-line is nothing but interesting filling me with anticipation and keeping me on the edge of my seat this is truly remarkable in every way. Don't stop writing you could be huge maybe even as big as queen rowling herself.

Author's Response: Thank you very much! It's great to hear that you're already enjoying the story and want to continue - I hope that the rest of the story lives up to your expectations. Wow! I'd love to be as famous a writer as JKR one day - I've got my fingers crossed for it! :D

There is one particular line I simply adore in this, "Fulvia entered the room like a ship coming into port" - it's such a wonderful description!

This is shaping into such a lovely, charming story! You've set it up so well, and I find myself wanting to keep reading till I find out what happened to her Father! Whether/when he comes back to find her!

Great work :)

Author's Response: Wow, thank you very much! It's great to hear that the story is shaping up well so far. I rather enjoyed writing Fulvia and her sister (too much, actually, they're so wonderfully hateful). Mort will return eventually, so keep looking for him. ;)

I wasn't sure about this story when I began the first chapter, but I was surprised at how quickly you drew me in with your characters and plot. After only two chapters, I'm already concerned about will happen to Emma, Grimm, and Mort. The way you write, it is clear that you care about your characters and spent a good deal of time creating them, and to me, solid, characters that one can relate to are the foundation of any great story. That's all for now... I'm going to get back to reading!

Author's Response: That's wonderful news to hear! I do think a lot about characters, certainly more so than I do about plot (which tends to get me into trouble), and creating characters that are realistic and sympathetic is very important to me, both as a writer and as a reader coming to a story with such characters. Thank you very much! :)

There are very few OC stories that I like, but this one is especially interesting. I can't wait to finish it.

I also enjoyed this chapter very much. I particularly liked the crazy Goldwyn sisters. Also, I think you do a wonderful job of naming your characters. (Love the solicitor named Cicero -- how appropriate!)

Author's Response: Haha, they were hilarious to write, those two old witches. Very batty, indeed. ;-) Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Wow, I'd hate to have Emma's aunts, they seem almost as evil as Petunia. *shudders*

I don't quite understand Grimm's character and I can't help but wonder if he will turn out to be good or bad. I have a gut feeling that he's "good." I hope he can figure out the tracking spell, he seems so smart, or maybe Dumbledore. I don't care so long as Mort doesn't find her, of course, I think he will because almost all authors are slightly sadistic. ;)

I can't wait to read about how Emma is like.

Author's Response: Sadistic? Me? =O But of course! It's interesting that you're not sure about Grimm just yet - it adds another layer of mystery, I guess, and he does sound rather curmudgeon-like, haha. Thanks very much for reviewing! ^_^

It's incredible how you can easily introduce a new character and make him seem so real, i think you've got a real talent in writing.
The descriptions were great, the pictured perfectly the scene and Grimm thoughts, generally i skip them or read them quickly, but I really appreciated them here, they were accurated and well written.
Emma seems a very clever girl, I like her.
See you in the next one

Author's Response: Thank you! It really means a lot to hear you say that - I love Grimm very much, so having him fit in well to canon is excellent. ^_^

Grimm seems like a really nice character! I started to like Lyra too so I'm sorry she died :(
It seems like you are going for Roman names this time if I'm not wrong. Nero, Tiberius, Diana, Fulvia, Cloeia and Lyra all seem roman (not sure about the three last though). I like your name things a lot!
But, well I meant to say too that this too was a great chapter!

Author's Response: Yes, they're all Roman names because I'm an utter nerd for that time period. =D Thanks so much for reviewing!

Review #14, by Rebekka 

29th July 2007:
I completely and utterly love this story. I'm just so in love with your characters. Emma is such a strange little girl and I bet she's going to be a Ravenclaw. ^_^ And Grimm, oh he reminds me of Snape and yet again, he's entirely different. You gave him such a nasty inner world... and still, he fell for the girl. Just wonderful. ^_^ I adored all the descriptions here. This was one of those: Her haughty and snobbish outlook on life had sickened Grimm the moment he first met her while she was still a young girl. I just loved the way you showed how icky Fulvia was (and what a name; it's disgusting on its own, marvelous). And the mistreatment of poor Emilia... broke my heart.

Now, I found these. I'm sure you want to fix them. :D Here they are:

It has come to our attention that your direction cousin, Lyra Goldwyn I think you mean something like "direct cousin". I'm not sure, but this sounds very strange to me. :) Her husband had died long before in the war against Grindlewald, but her three children, all daughters, were the only things that kept Lyra from remarriage. It should be "Grindelwald" and I think the last part should be "remarrying". It seems as though Lyra made extra provisions in her will that did not show up until recently,” he said, his voice harder than her had meant it to be. Should be "his voice harder than he had..." obviously trying to think of a way to get it down without harming either herself to anything else. I don't actually know what you mean with this sentence. I was thinking along the line of: "without harming either herself or anyone else" but I'm not sure. :) Emilia pursed her lips and tapped her foot, as though she were making an important decision. Sounds better with "she was". :)

Anyway, this is quickly becoming my favorite story... and it's all about OCs at the moment. How can you do that to me? I think you're an enchanting writer. You make me believe everything that you write. That's just so very wonderful. And now to the next one (I should be writing, but you caught my attention, you evil woman you!). ^_^

Author's Response: Good bet, Johanna, and great review! =D It's wonderful to know that you like my characters - it really means a lot since they feel like a part of me, sometimes. Fulvia was the name of a terrible Roman noblewoman, so it was perfect for Emma's "evil" aunt. I love taking names from Roman history or from other stories I've read - it's rather lazy though, I know. :P

I've fixed all the mistakes you've pointed out, thank you. Guess I really should read over these things, but it's terrible since I've edited these first chapters a few times, yet keep missing these mistakes! *sigh*

Anyways, thank you so much for reviewing, and for enjoying the story, Johanna! It means so much to read your comments. ^_^

Review #15, by Bibbs 

13th July 2007:
LOL somebody is a little behind on review responses, eh? You don't have to respond to mine if you don't want to. =D

Anyway, I really love Tiberius! I loved him from the second I read that he was happy that there were no students in the school. Haha, he sounds like a grumpy sort that has a heart of gold. I loved the "for once he would be able to get work done with no interruptions" and then as soon as its said, the owl taps on the window. It made me grin.

Well, surprisingly, I found myself actually a little disappointed that Lyra had died. But I really enjoyed the whole part about the family history. So like purebloods, and its always so interesting how they end up ruining their own bloodline in the end because they refuse to branch out a little. Lyra's determination to change things, mixed with the fact that she cared about Emma, really makes me like her.

So, even more than that, I enjoyed it when Tiberius went to pick Emma up. The whole thing was somewhat humorous and at the same time it was somewhat sad. I dislived Fulvia right away, as you probably meant to happen, with her horrible perfume and clashing house. Cloeia was hilarious, which probably makes me look cruel haha. God! I'm sorry!! I dont know what is wrong with me that I'm so mean! I just had to smile that the poor woman was upset that she would be left alone with Fulvia!

Now Emma seems somewhat odd. She seems obviously intelligent, and definitely a little mistreated. Just the way she didn't really talk to Grimm at all until she learned what he was there for struck me as odd. I suppose usually when I see stories similar to this, where there is a mistreated person that is rescued, they aren't so... thoughtful. Though she did immediately become more excited when she learned she'd be leaving! Tiberius cracked me up throughout the entire visit with his thoughts and actions.

I especially liked when he thought about the look on McGonagall's face.

I really enjoyed the descriptions in this chapter, particularly in the beginning when you were describing the classroom. It sort of gave an impression of what Tiberius is like before you ever even started to say anything about him. Anyway it created perfect imagery in my mind. :)

LOL I still think Tiberius is great. I love grumpy people.

10/10 :)

Author's Response: Tiberius is like the perfect OC - not Gary Stu, but not too off-beat either. He's himself, and stubbornly so. =P I'm hoping that he's the "original character" who got me nominated for that Dobby. He certainly deserves it (while Emma, who can be a bit of a weird one, isn't so great). Even I'm cruel to her, which shows how well the story will go for her in the end. ;-)

Anyways, I'm really elated that you like Grimm. I love him to bits, which is why I even wrote a one-shot about him. He's hilarious and sarcastic - perhaps a bit of House ended up in him, who knows? It's also great that you like the descriptions - I try to make them interesting so that they make the world come alive. JKR does it really well, which is why I only say that I "try" at it, haha. Thank you very much for the review, and it certainly deserved a much better response than this silly one. =P

Review #16, by ElissandrAnne 

6th July 2007:
The first time I read about Grimm was in Ghost of You. And it was obvious you knew your character very well - yes, I do think there is a difference between a well thought of original character who is as much a part of a well thought of story as this story is a part him/her and an OC simply "born" from an OC form.

Grimm is intriguing, and Emma is too. I did like the way you portrayed them. And your descriptions. Good job!

Author's Response: Oooh! I'm so glad that you like Grimm! He's definitely my favourite OC of my little collection, and maybe that's why he turned out so well-formed - I put effort into making him real. Thank you very much for the review, Anne! ^_^
