Review #1, by katwithlove Hermione and Ronald

11th June 2015:
Hi! I'm here for the HC 2015 Amazing Race Challenge, for Gryffindor!

This was really unique, I don't think i've ever read a story that featured that hat as a real main speaker through it.

I really enjoyed both characters, but i'll go over Hermione's first.

I think you really nailed her character when you had her talk to the hat about how she had already read all of the books about the different houses. She already had her mind set on it and I think that's a big thing because you have to ask to be in Gryffindor it seems. She had her mind set and even though she could have been in Ravenclaw she was asking specifically to be in Gryffindor.

It was also really cool how you had the hat argue with them and was sort of feeling it out on where they should actually be placed.

Then when you got to Ron it was really funny.

"Another one? How many Weasleys can there be? I mean honestly, Bill.Charlie.Percy.Fred.George.Have I left any out?"

It is by far my favourite line out of all of them and it's so simple as to naming the characters, but to actually hear the disbelief in his voice. Ron's increasing frustration with the hat was amusing and I can definitely see that with the Weasley temper he would definitely get a rise out of Ron.

It was such a sweet and short little one-shot and I love that you focused on the other two of the golden trio, especially with something so simple when they were younger. I hardly see any young Hermione and Ron stories.

I'd personally love to see more of the characters having their time being sorted written out.

Heylo Abhorsen! (By the way, I love the name - I read the books and thought them awesome!)
I love how Hermione got in the hat's face about her placement - very rebel of her ~grins~. You did a good job of using that to foreshadow her future rule-breaking streak.
A remeniscent hat - very dangerous, methinks. I love how impatient Ron was. All in all, very well written. Cheers!

Author's Response: Haha! I love those books too. I think they've become more popular in recent years.

Ooh! Foreshadowing. My favorite, and I'm happy that came across.

Thanks for the review!

Review #4, by The Arethusa Got Lucky Hermione and Ronald

27th June 2010:
Highly amusing. I like how Hermione had to browbeat the hat to get her way. I also like the personality you gave the Hat. I am a little confused about Ron not having a bad mind, but that's probly just a difference in perceptions of his character.

If it's not too much trouble, would you mind writing the story the Hat was about to tell Ron? It sounds like it would be extremely funny.

Author's Response: Haha! This was really fun to write, way back when I did. Can you believe this was one of my first stories? I can.

I actually do think that Ron has a pretty good head on his shoulders. How else could he be so good at chess at age eleven?

I might just do that. I've actually been thinking about it for years.

Thanks for the review.

Review #5, by moonbaby11 Hermione and Ronald

21st June 2010:
That was cute. I loved all the comments that the Sorting Hat made, and how it has an adittude. Ron yelling 'SORT ME' is quite like him, and Hemrione quoting the books is quite like her to, though I don't know if I could see her asking to be put in Gryffindor. 9/10!

Author's Response: Yes, I may have to re-evaluate what she says to the Sorting Hat. Thank you very much for the review.

Great one-shot! I decided to check out your author's page after you left that review, and I was surprised to find that you had already written about the sorting hat! This is really funny and cute! I love it. :)

Author's Response: Haha! I thought the same thing when I first saw your story. Thanks for looking me up and thanks for the review.

Review #7, by ParaSiempre Hermione and Ronald

13th February 2010:
This was good. A nice story to read when there's nothing else to do. It's funny to know what the Sorting Hat would've said to Hermione and Ron. Of course, Hermione had to bring up all the stuff she's read. Very in character and Ron was too. He gets a little rude lol. I thought it was hilarious when the Sorting Hat started explaining about the tavern and mistletoe. You know... you could even write a story about that too. Anyways, nice job.

Author's Response: Yeah, I only ever intended this to be read as a sort of boredom quencher. I'm glad you liked the bit about the Sorting Hat's stories and also that you thought they were in character. I just might do that. Thank you!

Review #9, by Snape Obsessed Hermione and Ronald

25th August 2007:
Goodness... -looks at people 'rolling on the floor with laughter'- I didn't think it was THAT funny... Vaguely amusing, though. ^^ From what we can tell from canon books, the sorting hat is spot on. Though, it may just be me, but I thought it was just a bit boring... I mean, I was hoping to find some unique insights to what may or may not have went on in Ron and Hermione's sorting, but instead, I just found myself thinking, 'yeee-up. That's basically what the hat most likely said to them. wow'. I was sort of hoping for some new ideas, you know? Ah, well, it's nice anyway =) You know, I once considered doing a fic like this, but I don't like Ron and Hermione enough to write them correctly. D= Ah, well. nice job.


Author's Response: Yeah, it is a little boring, I suppose. *shrug* I guess I wrote it for a cheap thrill, and mainly because the plot bunny had chomped down on my ankle and wouldn't let go.

Thank you for commenting, though. Much appreciated.

Review #13, by jamespotter4eva Hermione and Ronald

7th August 2007:
The true genious of this story lies within its truthfullness. The Sorting Hat's demented process creates such a perfect image of the character being sorted. The Sorting Hat is written with hilarity beyond reason-He seems to love scaring children.
This is an instant classic for me.
I award it 10/10, and make it a favorite.

Author's Response: Wow, thanks! I really did enjoy prying that out of my brain. I'm glad you liked it too

Actually...that was quite entertaining? Yes, Hermione would've been like that, wouldn't she? >D And that little tidbit you threw in during Ron's Sorting about the Founders...heheh...nice homage, right there. It was a nice oneshot to read because it brings me back to the days when Harry Potter was such a simple, simple plot and wasn't all going to hell...oh, and those were the days when Hermione and Ron were such annoying kids! Heheh...YOSH!!

Author's Response: Was it entertaining? I'm happy that you like it simple. Sometimes, simple can be a very good thing. Thank you!

Review #23, by RonaldBilius Hermione and Ronald

7th January 2007:
That was very interesting. However, I believe right away the sorting hat sorts Ron? If I'm wrong correct me. Overall, I like it though.

Author's Response: I'm glad. Though I didn't check in the 1st book for that, because I lost my copy....I don't envision that this exchange would take much longer than a couple of seconds....Thank you!
