Review #1, by StepUpx_Gryffindor Gambit

13th May 2009:
OH MY CRACKEN. That was so great! It should have been a short story ;D you SO could have pulled it off! I really enjoyed this. The chess part was brilliant.

"Checkmate."

Oh, friggin. I want Scorpius haha :3

Author's Response: Haha. I have no idea what a cracken is, but I'll take it! I really toyed with the idea of going full on short story (you know, beginning-middle-end sort of thing); however, I wanted to try starting in the middle and letting the blanks be filled in along the way.

Anyway, glad you enjoyed it! And that the chess bits were believable enough, since I was basically bluffing my way through that.

Mm, Scorpius. If you know where they're selling 'em, I'll take one or two myself! :D Thanks for the lovely comments!

Very nice. It was sweet and a typical teenaged misunderstanding. And so true about how people can get the wrong end of the stick and then the rumour gets spread around. Very good for your fist next gen. story :)

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, teenagers do misunderstand, don't they? (I remember those days... hee) Glad you enjoyed my attempt! And I really appreciate the comments.

Review #3, by Jellyman Gambit

Aww, that was sweet :) Very cute, the plot was well thought out and your characterisations were excellent. I like your title name - at first I was like Gambit? Like X-men Gambit? But then you had that whole chess bit and that made it clear there were no x-men lol. That was excellent, by the way, the chess - it sort of mirrored what was going on, very clever! Anyway, excellent one-shot! Well done :D

Author's Response: Haha, I read a story titled "Gambit" a few years back and thought the same thing! I forget what fandom it was in but it wasn't X-Men and still I was like, "?!?!?!" So I know what you mean.

I really tried to bluff my way through the chess bits. I thought it had potential, especially with Ron being skilled-- why not his daughter, you know? Glad the plot and characters were to your liking. =)

Thanks for all the kind words!
