I thought something really bad was happening at Hogwarts at first. Brilliant story all in all, I love the way you described the characters without giving away their names and the ending was perfect :D
10/10 (and a definite fave)Author's Response: Thank-you so much. I'm really glad you liked it and it's a favourite! :D Report Review
That was good. At the beginning, I thought something really terrible was happening so it came as a shock when it turned out to be Peeves. Anyways, I liked how you wrote it. Very eerie and mysterious :)Author's Response: Thank-you so much. I'm glad you thought it came across as being eerie and mysterious. :) Report Review
Wow, that was a wickedly awesome story! Left you hanging until the very end. Very good!Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it. Report Review
The first two occurances, with Pansy and Cho, had me thinking that something really sinister was going on. However, the last two did seem more Peeves-like. Certainly he is annoying, mean, and nasty, but he never struck me as an especially evil, sinister being. Those first two "jokes" were very scary and not totally in character of him, the way I picture him.
I did find some of the sentences to be on the flowery side with some (to me) awkward phrasing, but I do enjoy your vocabulary. The overall story had a very spooky, eerie, Halloweenish air. I thought it was very descriptive. I am particularly interested in the way that you featured some of the least sympathetic characters from the books. Argus Filch, of course, was an excellent choice of a character, since he is always after Peeves.Author's Response: Peeves is definitely more of a jokester, but I wanted to have him being a bit more 'devilish' in the spirit of Halloween for this fic. I suppose the more 'evil' pranks were probably a little OOC for Peeves, but I guess that's the fun of wrting fanfiction, we can play with the characters to our liking.
It has been mentioned before that I was a little too wordy in some parts of this fic. For me on a personal level as a writer, I wrote this fic as a way of developing my descriptive writing skills, and hence some parts did come off a bit too wordy. I'm glad you liked my description for the most part though.
I did enjoy writing some of the minor characters, especially Filch, as they are characters not often explored in fanfic.
Thanks for reviewing. Report Review
Here, as promised, the review.
I like your story! The changing of POVs went really smoothly. I never read it in this style. Really original. :D I thought all the characters disappeared or that something really bad happened to them, but Peeves just played his pranks on them. LOL
I'll definitely read your other stories too. :D You're a great writer! :DAuthor's Response: Thank-you so much for reviewing this again! I was devastated when I lost my reviews in the site crash (as were all authors), and I really appreciate you taking the time to review again. :)
I'm so glad you liked this story, it was the first time I ever attempted a horror. I wanted to use some of the minor characters in this story, yet let the reader assume who the characters were through the descriptions. I also thought it would be an interesting twist having all the mayhem caused by Peeves in the end, as I tend to think he would love the opportunity to play pranks at Halloween.
Thanks for the compliment! I hope if you do read any of my other stories that you enjoy them as much as this one. :) Report Review
It was okay. I really enjoy hearing about others than Harry. I wish the 2 boys would have gotten from the pumpkins.Author's Response: Thank-you for reviewing. I thought it would be interesting to write something from the trio era that focused on minor characters rather than the trio. Report Review
I like it...
It's quite spooky and I wasn't sure what the conclusion was going to be but you carried it off with a funny twist at the end.
Keep writing!Author's Response: Thank-you so much for your review. I'm glad you liked my little twist at the end and I am pleased you liked the fic as a whole. I will definitely keep writing. :) Report Review
I wasn't sure whether to laugh or be afraid of your story.
I loved the poem-type-thingy that was on the blackboard:
There was a young girl named Cho,
It’s a pity she has to go,
She cannot escape,
Her horrible fate,
And no one will ever know!
If was so cool. Did you write it yourself?
~Sal1705Author's Response: Thank-you so much for your review. Yes I did write that poem myself (I love writing poetry) I'm so glad you liked it. Report Review
I'm excited! More! =)Author's Response: Thanks! I'm actually going to be starting another horror story soon involving the Marauders. :) Report Review

AHAHAHAHA! :PAuthor's Response: Thank-you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it! ;) Report Review
Brilliant, I knew it had to be a ghost, but I was wondering which one, of cause it was peeves, the only poltergeist in the series mentioned ^_^Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing, yes of course it was Peeves, causing mischief and mayhem as usual :D I'm glad you liked it. Report Review
Wow. That's pretty good. And it made me laugh, it was all peeves !Author's Response: Thank-you so much! I'm so glad you liked that it was Peeves and that it made you laugh. :) Report Review
That is a brilliant and thrilling short story i love how at first you did not mention peeves at first but i love the whole way you set out the story it was brilliant.Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I am so glad you liked the way I set it out and how I left Peeves until the end. It was definitely fun to write. Report Review
A very endearing story! A very fun look at the happenings at Hogwarts from Mr. Filch's perspective.Author's Response: I thought it would be interesting writing something from Filch's perspective, so I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for reviewing. Report Review
Woah, for a moment I actually wondered what was doing all of that stuff! I know it's months ago that this story was written but still...I was actually freaked out with that thing with Cho (even though I don't like her) you should write more scary stories on here or something that one was awesome even if I was really creeped out!Author's Response: Thank-you so much for reading and reviewing. Although this was written as a Halloween fic, it's great that people are still reading nearly six months on. Considering this was my first ever attempt at writing something scary, I am pleased you liked it so much that you think I should write more! I'm actually working on an original creepy fic at the moment to post at Fiction Central. Report Review
That was really well written! You really had me scared then! But once you found out it was Peeves, everything was much better. Fantastic story! Great job!
