Review #1, by darkkid The Yule Ball

Slytherin House Cup 2015

So I've only ever read one other Ernie fiction and he wasn't very nice it is so this was very refreshing to read!

I love the nerves everyone is feeling about the Yule Ball. It's a once in a lifetime event, I'd be curious is they weren't frightened just a little bit! I really like this! And I like the innocence of the whole story overall!

And I like the comments about Harry - he was absolutely hopeless! I love when stories that the trio attended at least mention them and you did!

So great! Love this one!


Author's Response: Actually, I don't think I've ever read an Ernie fic! I only picked him because he seemed to be the only person pompous enough to say something like the quote I had to work with :P

Thanks for the lovely review! Glad you liked it! :)

Review #2, by PhoenixPulse The Yule Ball

Oh, you just got to love Ernie and his dorky little self! Do'oh. I feel like running over and pinching his cheeks! Ickle Ernie and Eloise, you wrote them perfect for each other. :)

You did a great job portraying him as the pompous twerp we all love him for. So good job on that.

I really liked this piece. Very light-hearted and not too drawn out. I think it was great!

Author's Response: ehehehehehe hey thar

I'm glad you liked it! I really loved writing Ernie as a pompous twerp! :p

Glad you liked it, Pearl! :D

Thanks for the review! ♥

p.s. I'm going to read and review your new one-shot (another Barty one!!!) as soon as I do my homework. So that might be a few days. :p

Review #3, by Siriusly89 The Yule Ball

8th May 2013:
Hi! Siriusly89 here, reviewing (as you may have guessed!)

Thank you so much for entering my challenge!

The beginning was rather sweet, you know, Justin asking Ernie’s permission to take Hannah to the Yule Ball and whatnot. Eloise wouldn’t happen to be Eloise Midgeon would it? Gah! Yay if it is! I love when really minor, minor characters get included into things, it makes me so irrationally happy!

Oh! Your use of the quote was just wonderful! It was so weel thought out, and it flowed nicely with the rest of the piece. You really did your homework, as you chose a person who speaks quite, well pompously, and a bit old-fashioned in the books, and the quote just fit him perfectly! I’m not sure how much sense that made, but I loved it anyway, that much you can be sure of!

Eloise’s response, “That’s nice”. That one line, ah, it has me rollin around the place laughing. So funny.

“You look ravishing”- such an Ernie-ish thing to say. He’s just so darn entertaining, I’m going to go on a hunt for more pieces with him in them (or perhaps you could write more Ernie fun? *hint hint*) I’m joking of course, but I’m not saying I wouldn’t love it if you did ;)

The comments on the dancing, especially Harry, because lets face it, he was a bit hopeless. Nope, scratch that, very hopeless. The boys decision not to say how pretty Hermione looked was a good one in my eyes!

Ah, the ending was just so innocent! This one shot was just so sweet and fluffy! I’m sitting here just ‘awhing’ at my laptop like a loon, but I don’t care.

A brilliant piece!

Author's Response: Hello!

Thanks for making that challenge! I really like all of your challenges, haha! We have the same taste! :p

Eloise is Eloise Midgeon, yes. :) I think they'd just be adorable together! :D

Oh, I know. If someone has put minor characters in their fic I just get so happy! I don't know, I just like that they've been included. :p

At first when I saw that quote, I tried writing a Founders era but that just ended horrendously. I don't think I'll ever be able to write those types of fics! So I was thinking about dropping out but I really liked my quote and then Ernie popped in my head, so I'm glad you liked the use of it! :D

I literally sat there for about five minutes trying to work out how she'd respond. :p

Ernie is entertaining. I loved writing him! I think I may write some more of him, and if/when I do, I'll make sure to let you know. ;)

Harry was an awful dancer, and I felt like everyone would have had a bit of a giggle about it. :p Boys can lack common sense at times, but Ernie and Justin were pretty clever about that type of stuff, in my opinion. ;)

I'm so glad you liked it! You're so sweet to me! ♥

Thanks for the AMAZING review! :D
