Review #1, by Rrit Too Much

27th December 2013:
I think that, YES!, you should continue.It's great to see how Bella would have ended up under different circumstances and honestly Jeremy's just adorable. I would love to see some more from Bella's side. We meet Jeremy's brother and I would love to see the contrast of one of her relatives.

Review #2, by marauderfan Situations

Review swap!

When I read the summary I just had to click on this story, it's so original and exciting! Bellatrix is such a fascinating and evil character and I just love the idea of a story from her POV.

I think you write her very well! I like the way you described her constant dismissal of Jeremy, why she just thinks he is worthless. She seems like a younger version of her crazy self we know from the books - I think her single-minded attention on how much she hates him is pretty indicative of her future self and tendency to obsess over things (like Voldemort.)

Bahaha I like Slughorn's determination to pair up the students to encourage unity among the houses. That does sound like something he might have done.

Ha, Jeremy had a crush on Bellatrix? What kind of person has a crush on Bellatrix? :p Ok, maybe she was different as a teenager. Though seeing her behaviour here, I don't think she was that different! Jeremy's a little strange I guess :p

That must be the most awkward/difficult situation ever, to find themselves years in the future and married. I can only wonder how they will ever work together to sort it out! Well, Jeremy doesn't seem opposed to working together. But I think it will take a lot for Bellatrix to go along with it - she's not someone who likes to be told how to do things.

What a great start to this fic! It's a clever idea and I like what you've done with it so far. Great work!

Author's Response: Hi!

I am so glad the summary interested you, it was my baby for...a long time before it finally met my approval.

Ah, thank you!! I was terrified to write her, feeling that I would badly butcher her character, so I am glad you think she seems like a younger version of her canon self! That means alot to me. (although, reading over the last chapter or two I have posted, I am wondering if she is at all believable).

I am pleased that you think so. Hehe gotta love Slughorn...

Ha, he is very strange, yes :P

Yeaahh. Hehe, no, he doesn't. The weirdness coming out in him.

Thank you so much!! I am so glad you enjoyed it!!

Review #4, by Ginnypotter87 Situations

15th October 2012:
I'll admit the reason I read this story was because the banner had Adam Young on it (SQUEAL) but I actually read this and it's a cute idea. I love stories like this, they're adorable. I'm just going to keep reading and fangirl over Adam (I LOVE HIM.) and read with a huge, creepy smile on my face.

Sorry, I'm a bit off track. It would be awkward if that wasn't Adam Young, but hey, we can't see each other.

I liked this chapter very much but Bellatrix seems a bit less evil. (and creepy.) I suppose that's because they're this story AU? Sorry, didn't pay much attention to the details.

And, woah. I never imagined people would have crushed on Bellatrix. It feels strange.

Overall, cute plot and you must keep writing. I'll review when I can!


Author's Response: Oh my gosh that's so awesome! Now I am so glad I picked Adam Young to play Jeremy :) You are epic!

And yes, the story is very AU, and Bellatrix does tend to be less evil and creepy, but I will have her end up that way by the time it is time for her to be that way, and yes, you are right about it being because she is younger :)

Thanks so so so much!!! And I will definitely keep writing, this story is my baby right now LOL :) Have a lovely day and thank you for the awesome review!

Interesting idea. And for never having written Bellatrix before- very good job!

She's a hard character to write, and I think you pulled it off nicely. Can't wait to read more. :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I've been so busy lately, but I just finshed chapter two and three is being written, so...hpe you like them equally, and I'm glad you think I got her right :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am so glad you enjoyed it.

I have to get like three or four challenge oneshots published by their deadlines, but after that, I will try to have a few chapters ready to join the queue whenever they can.
