Review #1, by Live Life Large Chapter Two

30th April 2012:
Wow. Just those 2 chapter were the epitome of hilarious! Amelia seems to have the worst luck; one second she's being forced to work as a live in cleaner for the summer, and the next she is dueling Lord Voldemort. How smooth. I'd love to find out more about what Voldemort was doing in the town. Alas, maybe next chapter (hint hint wink wink nudge nudge). Hopefully Amelia isn't forced to do culty things or anything(; Keep it up! Until next chapter, be sure to...

Hahaha, this is amazing! "They are in a cult!" hahaha, sure thing :D
You are very good at describing Amelia's situation, because honestly, I like her reactions a lot more than those where the main character just accepts everything right away :D Oh, and were Maradeurs in this kind of situation before? I'd love to find out a bit about that too :D

Apparently youve got a knack for coming up with interesting stories...

Author's Response: Thanks so much! Sorry this reply is so late :/ I want to be able to be more regular with updating, so I've decided I'm going to write ahead before I keep posting the chapters. I'll definitely continue though. Thank you so much for reviewing :) x

Review #6, by Pen2Paper Chapter One

1st January 2012:
Hey :)
Pen2Paper here with your review finally! I know its been an incredibly long wait but I barely get free time these days. Anyway so sorry for the delay. Moving on to the review part.

I have to say I haven't read many humour fics but this was definitely a memorable one! I really enjoyed reading it and I'm certain scores of people will too :)

Your main character is delightfully entertaining. As you explained 'the facts' as a list I wasnt sure if I was going to like her but when you said it's all in the details and continued to describe I quickly became fond her. Amelia is very likable with her charming resentfulness for her scheming Stepmother and her sarcasm. She strikes me as bit of a tom boy (I've always liked tom boy protagonists :) ) and she definitely does keep the readers interested :) Well done creating her and I hope you continue to develop her character.

Your plot so far is still in the early stages of development. It's got a good foundation having established the main character and her confrontation with Voldemort! HILARIOUS! Kudos to you!
I do hope you build on that base structure nicely.

Pace and flow, nothing odd, you seem to have done well with that. I especially like how you started giving us a small peek into 'Life as Amelia' The stepmother too is a wonderful piece of work. Every story needs a villain who we can easily dislike. She's going to add a lot of flavour to this story if you decide to keep her. :P

Two tiny details :
1. Spacing in the last segment was a little off... You had a lot of stand alone sentences. If you can try and even that out I'm sure that'll be great.

2. "all in black with his skin (was) so ashen it almost looked green. He was holding a wand up in the air and laughing manically"

^ 'was' is unnecessary in the above sentence.

Overall, you have a well written, well constructed, very entertaining chapter here. I especially enjoyed her thoughts of being called up as a volunteer since I sort of share the same fears! Lol. I am also curious as to who pushed her aside and why he/she was there.
I look forward to more. You've done well with this chapter, keep up the good work :)



Author's Response: Thank you so so so much for your review!! And don't worry at all about the wait, you wrote such a lovely and long review :)

I'm glad you think Amelia is likeable :) I might edit the 'facts' list, but I'm not sure yet... And yes, she is definitely not a girly girl haha. The stepmother will stay in the story, I'm glad you think she makes a good villian. She's kind of stereotypical but I'm working on making her believable :)

And I'll go back and edit the 'was' part, thanks for pointing that out. And I'll try to fix the spacing, I feel like sometimes people skip over longer paragraphs so I guess I over did it on the stand alone sentances :/

Thanks again for taking the time to review! It means a lot :)

Review #10, by Cecelia Chapter Two

11th December 2011:
What a lovely chapter! It ended far too soon for me, I must say, but it was really well written. There was quite a lot of dialogue, but it flowed really well. I think I'll really like how you write the boys.

I really like how you write Amelia.

I can't wait for the next chapter!


Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm kind of worried about the flow, I feel like a lot of the time it feels rushed so thanks a lot for saying it flowed well, it means a lot. And I'm glad you like Amelia.

Thanks for reviewing, hopefully the next chapter will be up before the queue closes but (...very very early) merry christmas anway!

Review #11, by Cassius Alcinder Chapter One

8th December 2011:
It's me from the forums with your review!

So I think you're off toa really good start so far. As far as characterization, Amelia seems like an interesting and relatable main character and you've protrayed her pretty well. Her relationship with her stepmother was also well handled and totally believeable.

Overall you've done a good job of incorporating a humerous tone into the story that will be greatly amusing to read. The duel with Voldemort at the end was hilarious.

If I may make a suggestion, I thought the opening of the chapter felt a little bit abrupt since it pretty much just started in the middle of a conversation and we didn't really know who the people were until the second section.

Overall it's a good start to the story

Author's Response: Hi :) Thanks for leaving such a nice review and so quickly. I completely understand what you're saying about the beginning, and I plan to edit it soon, so hopefully it won't be as abrupt or confusing :D

I'm glad you thought the characterisation was good, I do get kind of worried about how consistent it is :/ so that means a lot.

Thanks so much!!

Oh, I loved it! I can't wait to find out what happens next :D

You have an excellent writing style, really, I mean, it kept my attention and kept me wanting to read more. And Amelia's cynicism was great. Spot on. A lot of the things she said had me laughing. I particularly loved this line:

'I'm about as good at cleaning as I am at flying.

Which is not very, in case you were wondering.'

So, great job. I cant wait to read more, looking forward to an update :D


Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing and for all the lovely comments! I'm glad you liked it haha. Pace is an issue for me so it means a lot that you said it kept your attention.

I'll definately be updating soon, hope you keep reading :) x
