I love this!! This is such a cute piece. I never actually put much thought into the Prefect selection process myself so this was very interesting for me to read. My absolute favorite part of this was Dumbledore's magic log book! That is so ingenious!! And being the huge fan of Snape's that I am I love how he showed concern for Greengrass by not putting her as a Prefect to prevent her from being a target to Voldemort! It shows the side of Snape that we were not permitted to see in the books. All-in-all a very well-written, well thought out piece. I loved it! Great job! Report Review
Hi! As a thank you for being such a great Santa this year, here's a review for you in return. =) I enjoyed each one of your presents very much.
I like to write scenes the I feel are missing from HP books as well. It's comforting to know, that even now when there are no more HP books to wait for, one can always read a fanfic like this and feel the magic all over again.
I haven't ever really thought about how prefects were chosen, so this was quite interesting take on it. I agree that most likely the opinions of the heads of each house would be the most important factor, since they know their students much more personally than the headmaster could know.
You portrayed each of the teachers very well. Minerva and Severus were very much like their canon counterparts, and it was interesting to see how carefully Pomona had thought about each one of her candidates before coming to the Dumbledore's office. I liked the reasoning of why Anthony Goldstein was chosen, because I always root for underdogs. Only the reasoning behind Ron becoming a prefect wasn't quite as convincing as with other choices. I have always hoped that his own personal traits and merits without Harry would be enough to choose him. Probably bit like with Ernie and Hannah, he would be the social one, when Hermione is more the intellectual leader of them two. They complement each other in that sense. But that's just my two cents. =)
I love the idea that Dumbledore died with the certainty that Harry and his friends would somehow overthrow Voldemort once and for all.
Your flow was natural and even though this wasn't the shortest of the one-shots, I still could have read more. There were misspelled words here and there (e.g. The plum witch -> plump?, Digory -> Diggory ), so it could use a round of beta reading. But if was a lovely story, and I loved to read it.

Wow, this is a really good piece of writting. I enjoyed every word of it.
I really liked how you gave the insight on the reasons why these students became Prefects. It shows a great attention to detail on your part, in regards to the series in general, seeing as you were able to give very accurate descriptions of the characters, even those that are secondary for the story (like the Hufflepuff Prefects, for example).
Originally, I clicked on this story to read about the choice of the Slytherin Prefects and your spin on the reasons why Malfoy and Parkinson got the badge really surprised me. It was a clear, objective reason and one that has never crossed my mind until now, but the more I think about it the more sense it makes.
As for the Gryffindor choice, it was indeed a very smart move on McGonagall's part to push for Ron, seeing as he is the one that is always overshadowed, not just by Harry, but by his more succesfull and outgoing siblings.
A very nice touch that I really liked in this was the appearance of the future occupations of those chosen. It really gives the whole story a sense of foreshadowing that only the Potter series can offer you.
Finally, your description of Dumbledore as a man that feels war is coming and makes all of the preparations necessary in every way he can is really touching. And the details of this fall perfectly into canon. Dumbledore gains an understanding of Draco and plans the events on top of the Astronomy tower, same goes for Ron and he includes him in his will and automatically in his master plan to see this ending from beyond the grave.
Tehnically speaking the writting flows perfectly, the mood is set from the first paragraph and it switches in accordance with the person standing in front of the Headmaster and the grammar is very polished and appropriate.
Great story, keep up the good work!
P.S. Since my last review on your Killian story I've watched the movie and now I'm even more excited to read what happens next! =)
P.P.S. I think this is the longest review I've left. Ever. But you deserve every word of it!
RalAuthor's Response: Hi and thank you so much for this amazing review! I'm really touched that I received your longest review yet!!
It was fun to come up with reasons as to why those particular students were chosen for being prefects. It did ask for a bit of research but not too much, I have to admit that there wasn't that much info on most characters!!
The Slytherins part was so much fun to write and I'm glad you picked up on everything I tried to pass on there. I definitly intended for Snape to give some informations about Draco's family life and the situation he was facing now that Voldemort had come back.
The Gryffindors, well, I'm so pleased you like it! I always thought that there was a reason why Ron had been chosen, a reason deeper than what Dumbledore told Harry at the end of OtP. And Dumbledore being just a man, I do think that he had a clear favorite and that, at that point, he had not really noticed Ron's importance. Dumbledore is a man that acts alone and he probably saw the same for Harry and failed to notice the importance of his friends, something that McGonagall would have picked up on.
The book of the future really just wrote itself. I almost erased it before posting this story and I'm glad I kept it because it really does add to the story. Keeping things optimistic and giving Dumbledore just a little information as to how things might turn out.
I'm really, really touched by your review and you have no idea how happy it made me. Thanks so much!
As for Scott Pilgrim, isn't it a great movie!! The next (and last) chapter is in the work right now :) Report Review
Heya! Perelandra here with your review!! :D
Alright so this is a moment I would never thought about reading. The choosing of a Prefect! I'm excited to see where this is going to go! :D
The first thing I liked about the first paragraph is Dumbledore not knowing some of the students. Some paint him as a know-it-all so its refreshing to see Dumbledore not knowing some of his students but willing to learn more about them.
On the first part, where Dumbledore is talking to Sprout and he inquires about the choices for her female choices you used the word 'Feminine' which usually is used to describe something that is female. Like a dress, or make up...its something that belongs to the female sex. If you were to change the word to 'Female' it would work and sound much better.
I LOVE the book!! Seriously, it was a great idea! The whole Sergent and Officer titles made me think of an old fic I read DA and the Year of Darkness. So for that alone you get bonus brownie points! Hahaha!
I have come to a decision already, not that it was very difficult considering the idiots that this group holds, --I chocked on my drink! That line was hilarious!! That is something Snape would say!
Snape's entire section was an interesting read. I like how he's telling Dumbledore secrets without outright saying that he's spying for Dumbledore. While Sprout's character you can play a bit when it comes to personality, Snape felt true to canon. His dialogue was, while funny, cruel towards the students. The book revealing nothing of Pansy's future is interesting. Does she die? Does she come a housewife? *curious*
*le gasp* nothing on the Padma? Did you kill her off in this story? *stunned*
I LOVE the reasoning as to why McGonagall chose Ron instead of Harry!! And its so true!
I squealed when Dumbledore read that they were going to be DA Founders and receive the awards. Speaking of Dumbledore, I would like to throw out that his characterization felt very spot on! What his thoughts were...his actions...everything about it felt like the Dumbledore I read in the books.
It made the perfect ending to this story!
Overall, this was a great story! I'm adding it to my faves!!
Thanks for the lovely read!

This was absolutely amazing :) two thumbs up kind of awesome! I love your portrayal of all the Heads of Houses especially!Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review, I'm glad you liked it! Report Review
Oh, wow, I loved the idea of this - it is a very good idea, and I'm extremely glad you decided to write about it. It's interesting to see what the Heads of Houses thought should be Prefect, and I liked the telling-the-future-and-past book, it was a nice touch, and you pulled off the difficult character of Dumbledore very well, so job well done, as not much people are able to do that.Author's Response: Thank you so munch for this sweet review! I'm glad you liked this story and found it original.
It was a very nice way to explore those adult characters more as well as the students because in the books, we only see them through the eyes of one of their peer which is a biased perception. Dumbledore was horrible to write!! But I'm pleased of how it turned out in the end!
Thanks again for this review, I appreciate it a lot! Report Review
Wow! Just wow! Every story I read from you is better than the previous and that's saying a lot because I loved the first one already so much! It's just wow!
The originality of this story! It's just amazing! I always just thought that the headmaster/headmistress chose the prefects and that's it but your idea makes so much more sense! I mean of course, the Heads of Houses would know their students a lot better that Dumbledore, so of course they would give their insight on the subject! Really well done! I've never read anything quite like this!
Loved all the characters. You did a great job keeping everybody canon!
The scene with Sprout was probably my favourite. The way you've portrayed her was very good. I'd imagine her having trouble choosing one student over the other and would need help in making the decision. I also enjoyed her thoughts about the Hufflepuff students, they fit really well to everyone's persona!
Snape! He was so good! Exactly like I imagine he would be. His thoughts about his students were very accurate as well and I liked how he went straight to business, not bothering to make up compliments about the students who didn't make his cut.
And Flitwick! I really liked the thought that Dumbledore managed to change his mind about the choices. I think Filius respected Albus very much and would definitely take his advice into consideration and almost certainly follow it. Nice thinking!
Also McGonagall's scene was fabulous! Funny how it went the other way around than with Flitwick and McGonagall ended up convincing Dumbledore about her choices. Loved her reasoning btw - although I would have wanted to see even a little mention about other Gryffies than just the trio, at least the boys since Hermione was quite obvious choice after all.
The book was such a clever idea also. The thought about the empty spots after their names gives me the chills!
Anyways, another great story you have here. Where do you get your ideas? I'm really enjoying the originality of your work!
~EleniaAuthor's Response: Again with the blush worthy reviews! You are so kind Elenia, I really appreciate what you are doing; makes me very happy and moer confident with my writting as well.
It was never really discussed how Prefects were chosen and I think the Head of House would have their words to say because no matter how great the Headmaster is, there is no way he (or she) can know every students' potential and abileties.
Writting the professors though, that was something else! Sprout has got to be my favorite as well; I can just imagine her having a close bond with every single one of her student and not being able to chose between them because she sees the good in all of them.
Snape was fun as well because, well, who doesn't like being nasty at times, right??
McGonagall's scene was harder to write though because I wasn't sure how people would react to her intervention in chosing Ron rather than Harry. But it's the way I see it anyway; I think that, no matter how great Dumbledore was, he was partial to Harry and he would skip over the other students at times to see more of Harry.
McGonagall is a bit like Snape in that sense where she won't bother talking about the students that didn't make the cut. She had her mind set when she walked in and did not waste any energy trying to seel the other boys.
Where do I get my ideas? Honestly, I have no clue :) Most of the times, I question myself about a little thing and try to find answers. When I don't find the answers, I decide to write my own perspective. Now the questions, you may ask where they come from, well, that is the main question I've always had! I've always been very curious about the trivial things in life; those little details that aren't important to others are essential to me.
Thanks again for your kind words, you have no idea what it means to me, especially now in this bigger than ever writter's block; gives me confidence that the imagination will come back eventually . Report Review
March Gryff Review:
I have always wondered how the perfects were picked each year. I had always assumed that it was completely up to the headmaster/head mistress, but I liked how you added the input of the head of houses. I especially liked the insight each of the head of houses had for the students in their houses. Surprising enough I enjoyed Snape's insights on his house the most.
There were two grammar mistakes that I felt I should mention: In the first paragraph there was a small typo so typed "autority" when it should have been "Authority". The other typo was at the beginning of McGonagal's entrance you typed "chait hes collegue" when it probably should be "chair her college".
Other than that the story was a success in my opinion. Great job.Author's Response: Thanks so much for this lovely review!
I know everyone has their idea of how Prefects are chosen and when I went looking for a story about that, I found none!
Personally, I think that the headmaster has a lot to do and that chosing prefects would fall under the Heads' responsability. They have a lot less pupils to look over and, therefore a lot more time to get to know each and everyone of them whereas the headmaster has the entire school to look over. Some students would most likely fall through the cracks and not get their chance because of that.
Snape hun? He was fun to write; being blunt and bitter is definitly interesting! But he does have a deeper insight in this; bit of forshadowing Voldemort's plans and the need to protect some students.
Thank you very much for pointing out the mistakes, I'll get to them immediatly!
I'm glad you enjoyed and apologize for the delay in my response, like got the best of me... Thanks again! Report Review
This was a nice insight into a day in the life of Dumbledore. It was very thoughtful of the reason behind each prefect that was going to be elected to each position. I loved that Dumbledore still challeges his staff to be better and provide better insight in to the people they nominate.
Dumbledore's elation over his staff's ability to think critically for there students was good to read. Sometimes when I read the books I think Dumbledore was slightly cold towards the end but it makes me happy to read that the was not.
McGonagall's plight for Ron was great. It makes me believe that she played a vital role in the destruction of Voldemort but her simple action of believing in Ron. Which is exactly what he need to have the courage to help Harry when he truly needed it.
I loved the future-telling record book and the realization of what it meant. I wish he knew what DA stood for. He might be a little bit proud.
I can't wait to read more.
Megthechef43Author's Response: Hi and thank you so much for this kind review!
I think Dumbledore trusts his head of house fully and knows that they are in a better position to make a decision. They have a lot less pupil to look over and therefore, more time to observe and guide each one of them.
I'm glad you liked my little push for Ron! I always imagined McGonagall was the one that rooted for him for this position; she always seemed like someone that, no matter how cold she might seem at times.
The book was a way to show some hope for the future, no matter how dark Dumbledore was seeing things at that time. I'm glad you liked it, thanks again for the review and sorry about the delay in my response! Report Review
Words cannot describe how much I loved this! It's perfect. I loved that each of the Heads of House were very canon- Sprout was my favourite one, and I really liked Snape as well; 'Well, Bulstrode should be expelled'.
And I am very pleased you made McGonagall the one who put Ron forwards! I was surprised that he was made Prefect, but your McGonagall is perfectly right- he is Harry's rock.
I really liked the touches with the Book as well, showing their future too :D
Awesome! :DAuthor's Response: Oh wow, thank you so much for this nice review, I cannot tell you how happy (giddy might be more appropriate) this makes me!
Some of the Heads (Flitwick...) were harder than others but some others, Sprout for example, were so much fun to write! Snape was fun as well; it's nice to have to opportunity to be bitter.
I'm glad you like my take on how Ron became a prefect. I always thought McGonagall had something to do about that; she always seemed to know more about her students than what she let on (that comment about Neviile and what his Gran thought of him always touched me a lot). Ron needed someone to fight for him in that sense and I can definitly imagine she was the one to do it at that moment.
The book was a strange thing that wrote itself before I even realized it. It does give a nice touch of hope to this story. Thanks again and sorry for the late answer! Report Review
The chapter is well written but their is a spelling mistake.
In the paragraph where you had mentioned the Triwizard Tournament, you had spelled incorrectly first. You had written 'fist' there.
Otherwise, it is my favourite story.Author's Response: Thank you so much for this nice review, I'm really glad you liked it and that you took the time to let me know!!

I really enjoyed reading this story. It was original and interesting and the characterization was believable.
I noticed just a few mistakes, like in the 3rd paragraph you put 'plum' instead of 'plump' witch and other little things like that, but overall it was very well written and kept my interest. :)Author's Response: Thank youso much, glad you found this interesting and, most of all, original; it's quite hard to achieve that here sometimes!!!

Ho Ho Ho! I'm Back :D
Oh! I love this one aswell! Another story that I'll have to make a favourite after Christmas (if I do it now, then you'll know who I am.. and that's a secret ;) )
This was such a good idea! The meeting to decide who should be prefect, just a fantastic idea. I love that when Albus writes the Prefects names in the book, their future careers or positions comes up aswell! And it's so sad when no career comes up after their names :(
I found your characterisation brilliant, however I've always imagined Albus to be a little wiser, as in, more in tune with his students. It was brilliant, don't get me wrong, but I just feel that Albus would of known Ron a little more? Very minor point!
Also, whilst nit-picking, in the first paragraph you write 'autority' instead or 'authority'. That was all I coud see though.
Really brilliant, you'll hear from me soon :D
Secret SantaAuthor's Response: Hello Santa!!!
You are so kind, you're making me blush with excitement when I read your reviews!
This story was hard to write when it comes to the characterization of the teachers but the story in itself, the choices and the book parts, those parts practically wrote themselves.
Your perception of Albus intrigued me. It's not how I wanted him to come off but I will re-read things just to be sure. The way I perceived it, he knew his students very well and had an idea of who to chose but he wanted to let the teachers make their minds. When it comes to Ron and Harry though, I always thought that Albus was like a lot of people, blinded by his love for Harry so that he didn't see Ron next to him. Not because he wasn't wise or was mean, just because he had Harry on a pedestal too high.
I will look for that error and change it as soon as the queue re-opens, thanks for pointing it out!
Thanks again for such a kind review, I really appreciated it! Report Review
This was a really good story :) I liked how each of the professors made their choices, and the reasons for which the people were chosen. I liked how the book showed what the future would hold for the kids- that was a nice addition, and orginal. Dumbledore was charcterized wonderfully in this story, so great job, as it's very difficult to get him just right. I liked McGonagall's determination and reasons why Ron waas prefect instead of Harry. Her argument made sense and fit in with what Dumbledore told Harry in the book. I liked Sprout too- how she was sure of her choices, yet unsure of exactly who at the same time. All the characters were in character, which is always nice to read.
Merry Christmas! (Or Happy Holidays :D)Author's Response: SANTA!
I must thank you so very much for sating that you think I did a good job with the characterization! It was very hard to write those teachers; much harder then I would have imagined before I started!!
The book idea simply wrote itself. I have no idea where it came from and I almost cut it out of the story at first, I'm glad I did though!
Merry Christmas to you as well and a very happy new year! Report Review
Well this was a nice and unique piece. I really liked your plot, the idea of prefect selection had always intrigued me so, and I liked the way you portrayed it :) It was a nicely woven piece, and I think the Heads of Houses meeting with Dumbledore to arrive on the decisions was quite believable and interesting. I also liked the reasonings the heads gave to the headmaster; it was nice to see how much they paid attention to their students. The idea of the magical book which shows the prefects' future was a wonderful touch too, and I liked how Dumbledore speculated on them.
The characterization of Minerva and Pomona was quite nicely done. Snape and Flitwick felt a little strange to me, the way they conversed with Dumbledore, but maybe that was just me. Dumbledore's character was also nicely carved.
Over all, this made a nice read with the characterizations, plot and flow written well.
Merry Christmas from the Slytherin House!Author's Response: Thanks so much and merry christmas to the Slytherin house (or happy new year considering the delay...)
I was always curious as well as to how they chose the prefects so I decided to write my vision, I'm glad you didn't find it too crazy!!
I have to agree with you on the characterization, particularily on Flitwick; somehow, I can't seem to grasp this character. I will try again later, and try and give him a bit more substance!
Thanks again for your kind words, I appreciate it a lot! Report Review
Oh wow! This was an excellent read. I thought there would be fighting and it would be tough decisions because I figured that they would all be in a room together and we know how snarky Snape can be. This was a better idea than mine! Haha. I really like how they chose the Prefects, there was so much thought behind it and I've never thought about why or how they chose them. Oh! And I loved Severus's part out of all of them because he was just very snappy, very Snape like! You really got his character spot on and Dumbledore's as well.
I thought the book was a wonderful addition. Especially that he could see what was going to be their path later in life. It's like a reassurance for him that some of his 'favorites' (I use the term loosely) are going to really make something of themselves.Author's Response: Thank you so much for this review, made me blush when I read those kind words!
That would have been a good idea as well, to have them all together and fight for the decisions...
You know, when I started that story, I had no idea how much thought went behind the decisions either... and then I found myself trying to explain every choice and make it believable; I was the first one surprised!
The book idea wrote itself. I almost cut it out because I wasn't sure it would work but in the end, it does help prove that the choices were the right ones after all.
Thanks for this review! Report Review
I'm gaping at the screen right now. You know why? Because this piece was simply terrific! :D Seriously, I'm starting to love your one-shots. So unique, yet so fantastic!
Every characterisation was jaw-droppingly accurate. I've never seen anyone characterise every canon character so wonderfully! :)
Also, I never thought selecting prefects was such a difficult job. I like the idea that the Professors didn't choose certain students for their own safety- to prevent them from being targetted. :)
And that Ron twist was wonderful. I never imagined /McGonagall/ choosing him. In a way, it was very much canon, and characteristic of her. :)
Loved it. This was brilliant in its simplicity. :)Author's Response: Thank you so much for this nice review and I apologize for the delay in my response.
I feel so touched by what you said, I hardly know what to say other than a huge thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the plot and especially the characterization because that was the hardest part.
I didn't think it was that hard either, choosing the prefects... But as I was writting, all these questions came up as to why this one and not that one and I really got a sense of how important these decisions were.
I always thought Dumbledore was blinded by his affection for Harry, not in a bad way or anything, simply, he wouldn't have seen Ron next to Harry. I thought the best person to see it would be the Head of House and I'm glad you think it works.
Thanks again for those kind words, you really made my day! Report Review
Here for review tag!
This was a really, really terrific piece. I loved the way you depicted each House differently - I believed that Sprout would have the most trouble disappointing a student and would see more of them as worthy, and that Snape would walk in already knowing who he wanted to choose. Dumbledore convincing Flitwick to name Goldstein and McGonagall convincing Dumbledore to name Ron was also really interesting, and I liked the idea that it was McGonagall who stuck up for Ron. My only comment there was that I would have like to see a bit more conversation about Neville in particular, and also Seamus and Dean. Overall, though, it was really well done, and I definitely felt creeped out by the idea that some of them had nothing else next to their names.
Great idea, and great execution! :)Author's Response: Thank you so much for this nice review! I'm really glad you enjoyed and thought that the characters were, well, in-character!
I did think about talking about Neville but chose against it because it was too early in the story. What I mean is, Neville had not started showing his persona at this point. He began showing determination and hard work when he joined the DA and that was in fifth year. I thought that, based on the information we had by the end of the fourth book, McGonagall would not have considered Neville for the selection.
Thanks again, this made my day (even if the answer comes a bit late) ! Report Review
Okay seeing I never read a story of this kind before I decided to check this out. Interesting idea actually to write about he selection of the Perfects. So kudos for you on originality. I also liked this especially the idea of Sprout knowing her students very good. In your story you said that Theodore Nott was a follower but actually heís a solitary boy who has never felt compelled to join "gangs," such as the one headed by Draco. I looked it even up for you. My suggestion is to leave it like that itís hardly a big issue or you can change it. So that the reason he didnít get it is because heís such a loner and thatís why you canít imagine him in a position of authority

This was an original idea that I had never read of before. I loved how McGonagall was so passionate about her students, especially how she vouched for Ron. Reasons that were well-thought.

This was lovely. I really enjoyed reading this because it was something different that I have never read/or came across in the site so it was such an interesting idea. I think you have a lovely writing style that is fluid and engaging too. The flow was perfect.

I loved it when they were discussing about Ron because I have serious love for that boy. This was such a good read!
- SexyDoorFrames - GryffindorAuthor's Response: Thank you so much and, really sorry about the late response, I'm ashamed...
I'm glad you liked this little one-shot, the teachers were so hard to write, you have no idea! We don't see that much of them in the books (I'm talking about Sprout and Flitwick) and surely not enough to imagine how they might think or act behind closed doors and away from the students!
As for Ron, he is definitly a favorite of mine as well, I could not not use this opportunity to give him a little boost. I think it would be a believable thing to imagine he got the badge thanks to McGonnagal's support.

i like this! its really fun an iteresting seeing how the professors view their students decide based on their qualities who should be prefects. Funny, i always viewed Dumbledore the one on saying why Ron instead of Harry, but this works as she would know them better and dumbledore has a preference for our favorite potter. But i likey!
-miss :DAuthor's Response: Thank you so much!
I'm glad you enjoyed it because it's one of my favorite story too!
For myself, I always saw Dumbledore as a bit biaised toward Harry and therefore, missing out on Ron. Also, I think McGonagall knew her students pretty well (for example, the comment she gives Neville when he wants to chose his NEWTs classes) and so, I though she might be the one to have picked up on Ron's importance to Harry.
Anyhow, thank you very much once again for your review, it is much appreciated! Report Review
