Review #1, by lilypotterfan123 Don't Prank A Prankster

10th May 2011:
Wow it seemed to me that you might only be good at angst and things like that because of how heavy your writing usually is. This was good though, a great light and humorous fic that got me smiling. I liked the characterisation of James and his father they combination of the two worked really well!

Author's Response: Hey!

Light writing definitely isn't my strong suit - I'm much more used to heavy emotions, as you said. I'm glad you enjoyed this fic, though, especially the characterisation - it makes me feel like I've accomplished what I was setting out to do.

Thank you very much for your lovely review! It truly does mean a lot. :) xo

Awwh this is sweet! I love the characterization of James' Father. He is often written as a decrepit, super serious, old man! I like this characterization A LOT more.

"James gasped, any expression of excitement removed from his face; he knew that spell. He knew the consequences and they were disastrous." - This is a particularly great sentence!

Cute story :)

Author's Response: I apologise completely for taking so long to reply to this - I've taken a little break from fanfiction, but I'm back now.

I've honestly never read any other stories about James and his dad - I guess I probably should, haha! XD I'm glad you liked the characterisation, though. Writing about parents isn't easy.

Light writing isn't my strong point, so I'm glad you enjoyed this story. Thank you very much for your kind review. :) xo

I loved this as it has been a long time since I have read any fluff.

I think you've done a great job at this and I'll be surprised if you don't win the Survival Tips challenge. I had a go at it but I couldn't find any inspiration :)

So, good luck!

Author's Response: Hey!

Thanks for stopping by! :D I am so glad that you enjoyed this; the fluffy aspect is something that I found difficult to write, because I am so used and comfortable to delving into emotions. Keeping this light was hard! I'm glad you think it worked though!

Win? Wow, I wish! I'm sure the challenge will have so many good entries, but it was a pleasure to take part in it. My tip was extremely fun to write about. :)

Thanks again for stopping by! Have a great weekend and good luck with your entry!

Review #4, by Canadian_Hogwarts Don't Prank A Prankster

14th March 2011:
That's right James! Don't prank the pranking master! Hehehehe. I hope James' mum made him clean up all the water afterwards... it'd give him more time to think up a new prank!
As a character, the eight year old James was exactly what I would expect, and as for his parents... wow! I never really thought about them before, but I really liked how you made his dad a prankster as well! It makes sense to me that it would be a genetic trait! If this is really your first attempt at humour, all I can say is that it was a grandiose success! Good job!

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to review, it means a lot. :D

I definitely see James' mum making him clean it up, as well as telling his father to act his age, not his shoe size! James will continue his pranking in the future and (hopefully!) get better at it. Even the best have to start somewhere. XD

I am glad you liked James' character, because I found him quite difficult to write. The only real inspiration I have is my younger brothers and they are more annoying than cheeky. I always just assumed that James would've learned some pranks from watching his dad, or family member. I think children are mischievous anyway, but adding his Dad into it was quite fun for me.

Yep, first attempt at humour, I'm afraid. It's such a difficult genre; I'm used to sticking to my dark mystery. I am glad you think it worked, though.

Thanks for stopping by again! Have a great week.

Review #5, by Emerald_Lights Don't Prank A Prankster

I'm glad I accidentally stubbled upon this fic. And I think it did succeed in falling into the 'light humour' category and I really enjoyed reading it. Great fic!

Author's Response: Hey!

I'm glad you accidentally stumbled upon this fic, too. :) I am so glad you think it succeeded in the light humour category; it's completely different for me and I had a hard time writing it. I am just not funny, I guess!

I am glad you enjoyed this fic and thank you for the lovely review.

Have a great weekend!

Review #6, by maskedmuggle Don't Prank A Prankster

10th March 2011:
Hi! ;)

Lovely story yet again! It isn't as deep as your other two fics, so you did succeed at the light humour fic you were going for! It's definitely an interesting plot - I would've expected James to succeed, so it made a nice change to see him fail, but still make him smile :)

The Don't Prank a Prankster idea was great. And your writing is great, as I've told you :P An enjoyable story! :)

Author's Response: Hey!

Thank you so much, you're like the best person ever. I definitely agree with the deepness, it's totally out of my league. I was so tempted to add some angst and have James get mowed down by a hippogriff, just because light is NOT my thing.

Ooh, thanks about the idea, but I totally can't take complete credit for that - it was given to me in the Survival Tips challenge, so all credit goes to the maker. :)

Thanks so much for your lovely review, love! You're way too kind to me.
