I LOVE THIS STORY
there isn't many Lysander fics out there, it's so great to see one :3
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER O AWESOME ONE Report Review
Hi! It's harrypotterfan :)
I really like the start of this story. I think it's going to be more unique then most Next Gen fics that are on this site. I like the characterizations the most. They seem better then most also.
The only thing I would say is the spacing. I have troubles with that too so maybe you have the same problems?Author's Response: Hi :) Thank you! A lot of people have trouble with spacing, but when I click on my story it seems fine to me. :/ Report Review
Hey there! Ac has finally returned with your requested reviewed. Admitedly there has been an unfortunate time lapse of, oh, two months. But thats another story... involving NaNo and exams, school and a lot of boring things like UCAS.
I'd forgotten how much I loved this story. It is, of course, completely mental. But I appreciate that. And its not mental in the usual 'oh I'm such an insane OC, I'm going to fall over the floor now' but Lysander is genuinely and wonderfully very VERY strange.
I love the whole hat thing. I love that Mea is pronounced 'meh' (that made me laugh for about five minutes because my sister always says 'meh' and the fact that Lysander commented on the vowels and such really was a beautiful moment).
I wouldn't say this story has any particuarly DEPTH but its so fresh and great as it that I don't think it needs to be padded out by any angst or one not. Its really good, written in a very clean and engaging way (by clean I mean theres no bad-wording where you trip up over things, sentences that take two months to read - like this sentence - not clean as in a lack of dirty things. But that too).
I'd love to see Lysander and work out how exactly he manages to exist. Is Locran pretty normal or...? Anyway, I loved it. Sorry for the long wait!

And hello once again! This'll be the final review for the day, but if you'd like, I'll drop by again and finish up reviewing this story! ;)
First of all, thank you for the metaphorical chocolate. Greatly appreciated. Second of all, thank you for the Starkid references. Also greatly appreciated. And thirdly, thank you for the laughs - guess what? They were also appreciated!
Your Lysander's awesome. Honestly. He made me laugh! I loved his ridiculous craziness. (ahem, evilness) He's very different from most characters, which I liked.
The way you chose to tell this story is very direct, which is an interesting approach. I like how Lysander is directly talking to the reader: I think it suits him. Also, the little comments he makes are priceless.
"Before you ask, I don't give a Dobby's sock about blood status". OMG. Can I use that phrase all the time now? Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
It was filled with lots of these little one liners that just made you chuckle. It was a great set up and I'd honestly love to read more of this! :)
Now it's put me in the spirit... I suppose I could leave you just one little clue as to what my identity is. ;)
(and who am I? I'll never tell. You know you love me... xoxo Gossip Girl)
jk. I'm not Gossip Girl. (actually... I don't even watch that show...) But here's your little clue: I'm not bronze.
Puzzle over that ;P Until next time...
love, your Secret Santa ♥ Report Review
Hats, yay! And I like Mea. She's cute... You have good characterisation too. Lysander, even while being one of the strangest characters I've ever read about, still seems fairly realistic, so good job on that.

Still laughing. XD The AVPM/S references are a hoot.
My only thing was I thought the last transition was a bit off, but it doesn't really matter that much. It's probably just me, anways...
Veyr good story. :) Report Review
This story is great! I'm laughing so hard... :) Love it.
~Merry Christmas from Slytherin house!~ Report Review
Whoops. Forgot to review this earlier. I love this chapter (3 it makes me laugh so much :D And we both have very great hats. Muhhahhaa. Can they be used for evil deeds? Smothering people, perhaps... Hmm... Tilda's downstairs...muhaha. That was oonly a little laugh, though. I don't want to draw attention to myself... Bwuff. Sorry, rambling a little, now.
Love this story, not even joking.
Hatty/Childy x xAuthor's Response: You should be very sorry you didn't review earlier, Miss Emily. AND OF COURSE WE CAN SMOTHER PEOPLE WITH OUR HATS! =D
Of course you're not joking - I would kill you if you didn't. =P Report Review
Hahahaha! I love your evilness! I haven't reviewed this story in forever so I decided that I would pop back and keep a fellow evil genius company! And may I say, I am adoring the evil schemes, and the evil hat!
Anyway, aside from the evilness, I would now like to know what the tunnel mentioned in chapter 2 is getting up to in it's spare time! It seems to have disappeared entirely from this chapter and I am anxious to know where it has got to! The other thing I would like to point out is the room of requirement. It appears that suddenly, everyone knows about it!
Tata for now, and well done on an ingenious story. Update soon!

HAHAHA! I seriously thought her name was pronounced 'Meee-ah.' Mea is quite clever, I think she's the real evil genius in this story. Lysander is just adorable, I love his thoughts. Excellent job, I'm looking forward to reading more. Update whenever you can!Author's Response: Thank you! =D I am going update soon... When I stop procrastinating =P Report Review
Lysander is truly one of a kind. I think the best part was the notice on the board, he seems like the type that would watch Wizards of Waverly place, he's such an adorable evil genius. Loving this! :DAuthor's Response: THANK YOU! =D (and he really is adorable, isn't he? ^^) Report Review
This was great! I kept giggling throughout, I love Lysander and his 'evil' mind. Oooo, he's so evil, I'm scared! Hahaha. It was a cute beginning and I can't wait to read the next chapter which I will do...right now!Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it! =D Report Review
I am sort of jealous of Lysander's hat. Like, REALLY jealous. If you ever come close, at any time in the fairly-near future, to developing such a hat, I demand to know at once. I'll be the first person on the order list.
I hope you're working on another chapter of this story soon, because I'm a bit sad that I've reached the last one! Lysander is, as always, a nice sort of nutball -- part evil genius, of course, and part comedian. It's a fun mix to read, because plain and simple, I never know quite what's going to pop out of his mouth next. And in case you were curious, yes, I definitely caught the 'totally awesome' reference! (And if it was unintentional, so much the better.)
Oh, Amy, you crazy child. Good story! And now I'm running out of things of yours to review... Hmm. Fix this quandary of mine. :) Report Review
Hey! Back to read the second chapter of this story, and oh my gosh, the Starkid references. ♥ I've been a huge fan of the musicals for nearly three years, they are fantastic, and now finally seeing them incorporated into fan fiction is just... tremendulent, if I can use the words from my favorite comedy television show (and props to you if you can name the show!). Rocketships and royal hippogriffs and Wizards of Waverly Place... I have much appreciation. But sorry for the rambles. :)
Lysander, what can I say -- he's completely one of a kind as you've written him! I've never seen a story like this and I don't think anyone else, after reading this, could possibly attempt it, because it's just so /you/. I can tell you have so much fun writing this story, and that makes it more enjoyable for the reader as well. :D You actually write rather well, too, with very few grammatical errors. And I am a Death Eater-type persona when it comes to grammar, so I am singing mental hallelujah choruses now at seeing your knowledge of the basic English structure. :D Well done!
And so concludes a second very humorous and well-written chapter -- your story is so fun, Goldemort! I'll be searching for an excuse to read chapter 3 before long, I feel. :3 Excellent job! Report Review
This was great! Lysander made me laugh with his trail of thought, and the way you slotted sayings in (eg. legilimens / Dobby's socks) were just brilliant! I will be reading the rest of the soon!
Well done! (sorry for such a bad review, I can't think of anything bad to say!Author's Response: Thanks! (and it's fine - it's great you couldn't think of anything bad to say! =D) Report Review
YAY FOR HATS!
Is it just me or does every (every as in two, this story and mine) have a super awesome magical hat in it??
I love hats. Even more so when they are magical. I don't love Mea though:
She's a hufflepuff.
I know this isn't as long as the other ones:
THERE WAS NO MORE ICE-CREAM! *cries*
But Lysander is amazingly EVIL! :D

I'm all sad for my favorite evil genius!!
But *hiss* I HATE HUFFLEPUFFS!!
Sorry for that little outbursts, but hufflepuffs are... too... NICE!
Okay, I don't like puffs *hisses* however.
I LOVE LYSANDER.
And you made me laugh again! :D
Great story!! Love it!!!
*goes to eat more ice-cream, then reads chapter 3*

I LOVE EVIL PSYCHOPATHS! :D
Stupid Rose choosing the nice, happy, merry little elf over the master of pure evil!!
This. Is. Great. Awesome. Amazing. Fantastic.
You actually made me burst out laughing. Which is a rare thing. In most funny fics I smile and laugh interiorly. Only a few "chosen ones" actually, litteraly, make me laugh out loud.
You are one of the chosen ones.
And I think I had too much Ice-Cream.
(I don't care)
Sorry for taking so long to review, I couldn't go on the computer yesterday so...
I did it today. I bet my review is just as constructive as yours on my fic.
I LOVE LYSANDER!
I LOVE EVIL!
I LOVE THINGS THAT AREN,T DIARIES BUT REALLY MUCH RESSEMBLE DIARIES!
My only critism: This should be longer. :P

OMG! Im having a laughing fit. I LOVE HIM! The way you made Lysander seem is amazing, he's so superior and almost posh xD Im loving the whole way you have wrote the story and just so you know I think chocolate deserves its own sentence in every story!
Also loved the Pigfarts part... AVPM/S FTW!
Just about to read chapter 2! Report Review
another review... in like half an hour, I read too quickly these days, I feel like I've missed half of it, but in this fic it doesn't seem to matter (did that sound fairly mean?).. I ADORED IT again. Meh, or Hmpf... xD And the things Mea calls Lysander, I wonder what she thinks of it, and why the hell she buys him presents... x)
My biggest worry? That is going to turn into loads of rambles that won't reach the end as planned / or as thought of, but that you're going to be running in circles unable to reach it.
I don't mean it's bad, but I'd keep loads of structure in it.
Trick or treat!

Yes, I'm so cool I've gone to the next chapter and don't you hate breaking pc's.. Uurgh, had my share of them ^^
Anyway, that has nothing to do with the story, which was as always awesome (as always, I've read one chapter). I want to know all about Lys' evil plans.
One, thing, you should maybe include Lorcan a bit more - after all, he stays Lys brother and I don't think they have such a distant bond... after all, they fall a bit out because their cousins are all older.
Blah, I'm such a nagger. This was pure evil awesomeness! And I'm moving to Chapter 3 ^^
Trick or treat?

Amy, honestly, get me up! I fell of the bloody sofa - again! I keep falling of the sofa with you. Lysander is such a lovely guy - cough, cough? And his evil mind is sometimes so confusing that I just skip sentences. Wait, I shouldn't have said that... he's a bloody genius! Which is why it's so confusing that I read everything 5 times and keep laughing! TATAAAH, better?
I wonder why he isn't a Slytherin though... and I totally understand his problem with Rose, poor him. I would've picked him, who wouldn't want a lovely, evil (contradiction much?) boyfriend that has nothing to do but make up evil plans and hurt his bones by hating Scorpius!
Okay, what more can I say to get this a bit longer? Not much in fact! Ö How bad is that! I'll stop here, and just say you're awesome and tomorrow I'll read the rest!
Trick or treat,

Ahh Mea is such a sweet character ( and of course she is totally awesome, she is a hufflepuff :P) Also can i just say that that hat is possibly the most amazing and awesome hat I have ever heard of!! :D
Interesting that Lysander doesn't want to celebrate birthdays. The thing that really really made me laugh was when he said she had to call him O Evil One etc. :D
Hope I have helped!
oh and 10/10 because Mea is so sweet and Lysander made me laugh more than ever.
p.s Reading this has really cheered me up :) Report Review
Hello again, really love the title and also the use of examples. I like the way the guide book tells the tale of what Lysander gets upto. One spelling error which is really unimportant but there you are (sutdent-student) nothing important just a typo. I am interested to learn about the Mea character and I love Lysander's obsession to find out 'what a Hufflepuff is.' I also like the length, short but long enough if you see what I mean.
Also it ended on a nice note: 'Oh what a hard life it is for an evil genius' that made me laugh, well it all did!
10/10 for pure evil genious-ity

Hi, Lizzfizz here with your review!
It's a great first chapter, very first chapter-ish it's very introductory and it made me laugh. Lysander has a very clear voice, slightly insane but very funny. I can't find any spelling/grammar mistakes but I wasn't concentrating on that. I like the idea of it not being a diary but more of a guide book written from Lysander's point of view, which is one of the things I like about it, it's not just another sarcastic diary (although I do love them)
ten out of ten! :)
