Review #1, by DossyVilja Namesakes

30th January 2017:
Hi dova113, I wasn't sure if I should leave a review (it's not that I find the story bad - in fact it is quite good, as also pointed our by previous reviews - but not my personal favourite). But then I saw that you were not native English, and I said wow! I wouldn't tell that - I know you don't want everyone telling you about your English skills, but the story, so I will say that I liked the idea of Albus meeting the portrait of Dumbledore and Snape (but with the Cruished Child out, I think it's best to leave this as a one-shot). I didn't quite undrstand at the beginning why there was blood on the floor - it was hard for me to imagine that scene, but other than that everything was perfectly understandable. If you have a moment can you maybe comment on why you decided to depict ASP as a Gryffindor? (I know there is an alternative timeline in CC canon when Albus is not in Slytherin, but Gryffindor - I'm just wondering if you choose this timeline on purpose and if it has any meaning.)

that was so good! but, what was snape looking for? please make a sequel! thanks!

Author's Response: Thanks:) I have some ideas for the first year and sequels, but simply no time to put them on paper:) But I won't say never:)
To answer your question, Snape was looking in Al's face for signs of Lily, Al's paternal grandmother, as Al's friendship with Scorpius reminded Snape of his own friendship with Lily.

I really liked this! I didn't notice any spelling mistakes, but 'm American so I can't help you with those words. This was a really good story, I love the types of stories where Al meets both of them.

This is absolutely charming! And quite well written; I had no inkling that English was not your primary language. Loved it.

And I like to think that Al got to chat them up again, too. And maybe Snape wouldn't be quite so sour with him...

ps. I love that you used the word "scarper." It's one of my favorite britishisms.

For English not being your first or second language, I applaud you. It find this so cute and it was written well! I didn't see any errors, of course being American, my UK-English isn't that great. But really good job. I like it.

I loved this so much!!! Albus was definitely my favourite child of Harry and Ginny's, even if we only caught him for a few pages. :)

21st January 2011:
I really liked your story. I loved how you kept Snape and Dumbledore in character.
And I don't know if it's different to usual but I really liked the layout. It was very clear to read.
And I can't help you with non-UK words as I'm Australian but I didn't notice any spelling errors or grammatical ones. But then again, I'm not the worlds best speller at all but it seemed okay to me.
And yeah, I really loved the plot. Good work

I really enjoyed your story and thought it was a very original concept. I never would have guessed that English wasn't your native language because it was written well with no obvious mistakes.

I like it, the long spaces are a bit distracting though. The characterizations are good and very believable. I wish it was longer. ;)
