Hmmm... so are you making this some sort of a love triange? She can't decide between Snape and George? Just a random thought. It now makes sense why he's there, though! :-)
It's good that you mentioned she was in Hufflepuff because I was starting to wonder what house she was in. She seems very Ravenclawish, but I am starting to notice a version of Hufflepuffs that are Huffleraves or Ravenhuffs or something. We are a special breed.
Anyway, this is great! I really like the way you just put all the potion ingredients together and made them sound authentic! :-)Author's Response: I am making a love triangle. LoL Mainly because I can't decide between George and Snape.
Yeah, I combined some aspects of other houses when I created Bella. I don't think that anyone is purely a Gryffindor, Slytherin, etc. So with her industriousness as her main feature making her a Hufflepuff, I added a bit of other house traits into the mix to make her better rounded. Report Review
Hehe.. this chapter is cute. I like the voice of your character in the story. I like it that she is snappish and kind of MacGonagall-like! :-) It will make for some thoroughly interesting interactions with George! I think it's cute that he came barging in and yelling, saying that he apologized. Their first encounters are very cute-yet-awkward.
I have several questions. First, are you involved in making candles or just interested in it? Second, is Snape seriously coming to help out with this situation? How did George and/or Fred get him to come? Totally whack! :-)Author's Response: To answer your questions, I am a candle maker. In fact I'm currently working on a Harry Potter scent series. Like a lavender scented candle that's called Lavender Brown, a lily scented one called Lily Evans, and each has a little card that tells the character's history.
How George and Fred got Snape to help out will come out later in the story, but I can tell you now. They didn't. LoL They contacted Dumbledore, and he sent Snape.
Glad you're enjoying my story! Report Review
I like the further development in this story... It's nice to see that Skeeter's daughter isn't a carbon copy of her. She seems to actually be interested in the truth.
Bella seems to be an interesting character so far... I like that she is willing to tell her story, and you're holding me in suspense...
Well, if it's not too personal, I'm wondering if you yourself are an army brat? I'm friends with several former Air Force brats, so I'm interested.. :-)Author's Response: I am not actually an army brat. I took that aspect from one of my best friends from High School. Report Review
This is definitely a good set-up for the story to come. It's creative to have Skeeter's daughter also writing... Did she just assume her mother's last name to get all the credit, or did Skeeter have an illigitimate child? Oh, the gossip we could start about her...Author's Response: To answer your question, Rita did have an illegitimate child. It doesn't really play into the story, though I wrote a character summary for Arielle.
Rita Skeeter had an affair with a married man. For once her investigative skills failed her, and she was unaware that he was married. She found out that she was pregnant days before she found out that he was married. She never told a soul who the father of her child was, too ashamed that she been tricked.
Her daughter, was ashamed of the muckraking her mother had been involved in, and vowed to gain the respect of the wizarding community through her work. Report Review
I do believe this story is turning into something quite unlike what I have commonly read in Harry Potter FanFiction.
An interesting method of narrative, a different setting, independent characters, pieces of a delightfully unique and so far, entertaining read.
I eagerly await the next obscure reference filled chapter.
