I just discovered this and . . . .WOW! I loved it. It was something about knowing that they all have the capability to kill someone and knowing the reasons for it. None of them really felt remorse and seemed proud in a way. I just found it really interesting and easy to read. Knowing that love can drive people over the edge. This is now one of my favorites! :) Report Review
Ha! I just saw this story linked somewhere on the forums and decided to take a look. It's awesome! As someone said before me, it's a bit morbid - but so is Chicago, isn't it, and we love it ;) On the other hand, it's so entertaining and well-written that I just LOVE it (and seriously, who doesn't like a bit of humorously written revenge on the male kind). I'm putting it in my favourites. Thanks for writing such an original piece :))
KaileenaAuthor's Response: Whoah. You and I have like, almost identical names. xD Hi. I'm Kalina. NAME TWINS OMG. But yeah. Thank you! I'm glad you liked it ... and yes, morbid it is. I do love darker stories, though. And this one was intended to be a bit satirical, so hopefully that came through!

I played Cell Block Tango first before I started reading to get me in the zone and I gotta say excellent chapter. You made Pansy funny and I liked her lol. I didn't think that was possible.Author's Response: Cell Block Tango is -such- a good song. I'm so glad you liked Pansy! She's my favorite HP character. Thanks for reviewing! :) Report Review

Dumb Hermione and Stupid Harry.I loved how she broke up when he was ice! You are a very good writerAuthor's Response: Thank you! Report Review
I loved it! I like how she is ok with killing him and she is not regretting it! She is tough!Author's Response: Haha, yes, Pansy is one tough cookie. xD Thanks for the review! Report Review
I kind of like how convinced Hermione is that she is not a slut. It keeps her in character in her usual self-satisfied know-it-all way. More or less.
It is hard to think that Hermione would go back to Krum, her first boyfriend from age 14, with a brain of fluff. But if all she was looking for was adventure, then maybe so. You would think that Ron would have at least have some adventure with him, what with being an Auror and all, but obviously not enough.
I don't think I really get as much of a grasp of why/how they fell out of love as the others. As practically HP's OTP feel that they need a little more explanation for cheating and murder to be believable.
Ron's jealousy was exactly what would be expected him and was pretty in line with what we've seen of him in the books.
I also love her line to Rita at the end. The other girls have been too focused on their story to acknowledge who they are telling it to, which seems like a stretch for Hermione who always hated her. But the indifferent disgust fits pretty well.
I of course have reservations about things being OOC, because this entire story is just so different. But I can't help loving it anyway! Report Review
Is it wrong that I actually felt sorry for Ginny when talking about her relationship? Maybe a little. But just cause you did such a fabulous job writing it!
Wow. It's one thing to say that Harry's been sleeping around. But with half the Hogwarts class? Quite something. Hermione's approach did seem very forward and unHermioneish, but I suppose it does work to show us how far these woman have fallen and ease us into Hermione's chapter.
Your mention of a telegram was a bit strange. Do wizards use telegrams? This could easily have been replaced with something more magical to keep it grounded in the Potterverse.
Ginny's ugh reaction to their outfits was a nice touch and also very Ginny.
My favorite aspect of this story is how well you weave all of their stories together. The references to Hermione and Krum in the first too chapters and to Pansy's trial in this one help really tie it all together and makes it a lot more interesting. To have woman murderesses is one thing. But six woman murderesses so closely tied to each other? Now that's interesting! Report Review
Normally I wouldn't be drawn to something so short, but this looks really interesting. I like how you've broken up the chapters while still keeping them very brief. And, as a theatre person, this is a must read for me!
I love the voice you used for Pansy. It was totally her, and I look forward to seeing how you differentiate between the narrative styles of the other woman. It is clear to see that you've really got a hand for characterization.
I also like how you've given a bit of a different turn to it (making it snapping instead of popping). I'm again excited to see what you do with the others.
I'm glad that you didn't make this into a conventional songfic. The way that you've worked in lines and references to the song works really well and makes the whole thing flow excellently.
At first the offhand way that Pansy said that she had reformed seemed kind of off, but it worked with how she went on being her, like you showed with the mention of her exchange with Hermione.
I normally don't like that people often add swearing just for the sake of swearing, but yours really did add to the story and make it come alive by showing just what sort of person Pansy is. Putting that comment about Krum, which I can only assume is foreshadowing, was quite good as well.
Pansy isn't often given more characterization beyond just being a bit of a foul prig, but I loved how the last paragraph made her something more, crazy and sort of Bellatrix-esque. And that she didn't try to cover her tracks by hiding the body and just threw him out the window? So perfect! Report Review
"Apart from that book of yours. What was it called? Doesn't matter." -- LOVED that line.
This short was very entertaining. A fast an easy read, with great grammer and sentence structure. Thank you so much for sharing. Now, I am off to see what else you have to offer as well as add this to my favorites list. --JennaAuthor's Response: Haha, thank you! I'm so glad you liked it - and thank you for favoriting! Really means a lot. :) XOXO, K. Report Review
I like the little bit in French at the end, but I'm wondering why you didn't give the translation for it. I am fairly sure (from my French classes some six years ago) that it means "Revenge is a dish best served cold." So right she is. --JennaAuthor's Response: Yes, it does mean revenge is a dish best served cold, but as Fleur does not speak very good English, I gave a literal translation of the phrase in the text itself. Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
Okay, I really need to see Chicago now. LOL
Do we find out who killed him? Short review. Need to read on!! --JennaAuthor's Response: You definitely should see Chicago! Who killed who, do you mean? Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
Love that last line she spat at Rita. Very Hermione. :D
I'm a little speechless. I just really REALLY like this little story. I don't usually read stuff with such short chapters, but the short and blunt manner of them actually make it better than if they were drawn out full story type. --JennaAuthor's Response: Thank you so much! It was written in three and a half days, so no time for long chapters. But I'm glad you found it worked! Thanks for reviewing!
XOXO, K. Report Review
:D This was great too! I always hated the idea of the little Harry/Ginny fairytale. Leave it to her to come up with a very poetic way of doing him in. Brilliant. *rushes on to next chapter*Author's Response: Hahaha! This was actualy (in my opinion) my weakest chapter, so it's great to hear that you liked it. Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
