I love this story. I really enjoy Augusta's voice - I enjoy how down to earth she is. I also love the wiffy daffy way James is and how affectionately Augusta speaks about him. Their friendship is well written. I'm looking forward to seeing how their pretend relationship works out ^_^

This has been a really fun read so far! :) I love Augusta's voice and can't wait to see what shenanigans she and puppy-eyes James get up to in the coming chapters.

Author's Response: Oh yay, I'm glad you've enjoyed! Augusta's voice is the highlight of the story for me tbh. The shenanigans aren't bad either, I can say that much. Thanks for reviewing and I hope you continue to enjoy!

Author's Response: Hehehe isn't everyone?

Review #12, by GingeredTea I. God's Practical Joke

21st December 2013:
I'm spreading some Holiday Cheer and asked for some brilliant not-as-appreciated-as-they-should-be stories. Violet Gryfindor put your name up for grabs. So, here I am. And let me say, although this is not normally my "type" of story, this is a very good story and Violet Gryfindor made a good choice. :)

I really liked your beginning - choosing to start the story from a slight distance voiced through someone we don't know. It was an appealing entrance.

This made me burst out laughing: /Let me assure you, though, that Iím not the kind of witch that worships the ground he walks on or tries to fish his used tissues out of the rubbish bin to hug before bedtime instead of stuffed animals or, barring that, emotionally unavailable parents./

I love this narrator and the humor you have used. Great job.

This was wonderfully put together and I am so glad Violet Gryfindor recommended you. I hope this unexpected review spread a little more cheer on your holidays. :)

Happy Holidays!
Review what you Read!


Author's Response: Ahh sorry for the response delay; it's been a busy few weeks for me, but this truly did brighten my day. I have to thank Susan for recommending me, but of course, thank you for reviewing at all! Truly a little bit of holiday cheer :)

I'm glad you liked that beginning! I love the idea of starting a story off with a distance that implies third person POV but is all of a sudden revealed to be first person, so that's what I was going for. And hehe that's one of my favorite pseudo-run-on sentences, which is saying something, because Augusta has a lot of those. I love her for it and I'm glad you do too.

Again, thank you so much for this little gem of a review :)

This is utterly hilarious! I love it! I love the line "I just realized that I would sell my soul for food"!

Author's Response: Hehe thank you! I feel like lots of people would sell their souls for the right food at the right time. (Like right now, I think I would kill for gelato). Thanks again for the review, and hope you continue to enjoy!

Haha oh I LOVED her dorm mates interactions. So hilarious! Ha loved the Legilimancy/Occlumency so I'm glad you got mixed up and included it :P
Really loving this story!

Author's Response: Yaay, glad you liked it! And hehe writing in that scene is probably the best decision I've made in this fic ever. Thanks for the review and I hope you continue to enjoy.

Review #15, by Didi IV. Pie Pressure

8th December 2013:
"It sounds like Legless-ly" This chapter was hilarious!

And James seems adorable. I feel like Augusta over-exaggerates his cluelessness.

I love your characters! And their ridiculous fangirling!

Amazing as always!

Author's Response: Teehee thank you! And it's interesting you mention that. Augusta is definitely not a strictly reliable narrator, but her POV and how she acts according to that POV that moves the story forward. That doesn't mean James /isn't/ clueless, because he clearly is, but he's not hopeless. Maybe. Anyway, thank you so much for the review! Hope you continue to enjoy.

Review #16, by Rumbleroar goes roar III. Frisson Instead of Fusion

17th October 2013:
Poppy seems like such a interesting character! I love her already. I especially love reading about your characters interactions. You really pull me into the story. Cannot wait to read more :)

Author's Response: Augusta obviously is my baby, but Poppy is such a doll and they really work well bouncing off one another. I'm so glad you liked them interacting because dialogue is my favorite part of writing anything, and this cast of dummies is one of my favorite casts ever and the dialogue so far is kind of a blast. I will update kind of soon (comparatively speaking?) but never fear, I am here~ Thanks so much for a lovely review :)

I love your writing! It just flows so naturally and smoothly and I can feel the personality of your characters peeping through. Really good job I can't wait to read more! :)

Author's Response: Aww, thank you so much! I try to do my best to do justice to these characters I really do love. Even when they misbehave, cough cough. Thank you for reviewing and I hope you continue to enjoy :)

Review #19, by Poisoned Lily II. Love Story for the Ages

31st August 2013:
*squeals* You updated! (I don't normally do that, but seeing your story literally made me do that. Out loud. My cat's looking at me like I'm a complete weirdo, which I may well be.)
This is really, really good, and I cant wait to see what happens in the next chapter. I loved all the little bits about the talent show, as they really gave me an idea about the characters and Hogwarts. And a lobotomy? And falling in love with a mermaid? Hahaha!
Update soon? Please? :D

Author's Response: HI CAT! Sorry, I get distracted by cats -- buuut yes I did, and I squealed (mentally -- I'm a quiet person) to see such an enthusiastic review. I love creating different versions of Hogwarts through my fics and this heightened, crazy, James-worshipping one is one of my favorites to do. There's no limit to how far shenanigans will go! Talent shows, lobotomies, mermaid love -- that sounds like a tagline on its own. Thanks so much again for the review! Updates (for now anyway) are not far away, I promise :)

Review #20, by TearsIMustConceal I. God's Practical Joke

31st August 2013:
It is so refreshing to see James in a different light! Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the usual portrayal of him and I am guilty of writing him in that way but wow, it's good to see him a bit differently. I love the element of him being clueless about girls and oblivious to their. And his affectionate side is endearing, the song about his dead dog? It makes me want to hug him.

I loved the opening so much, you're writing is absolutely amazing! It flows perfectly and the conversational element really works. And Augusta, what can I say? I absolutely love her, she has the perfect combination of sarcasm and wit and does it in a way that isn't horrible. She's intriguing and already loveable and I really can't wait to read more of what she has to say about James and life in general.

I can't wait to read the next chapter which I am definitely doing after this!

Author's Response: Haha, I don't blame you at all! We all have our weak spots for hot guys being hot and/or arrogant and/or perfectly aggravating and/or perfect. I've written my fair share of them in the past too ;) But yes, it's always fun to do something different with a character's fanon image and derpy James is no exception. He's such a sweetie but so, so dumb. (And hot. Never discount the hot).

Ahh thanks so much! I'm glad it all works. My first-person, as I'm sure lots of first-person in fanfic is, tends towards the conversational and snarky and kind of dumb, so I'm glad it works for the story and for Augusta. Who in every respect is my baby, so I'm very happy to hear she isn't horrible! Let's just say she thinks rather highly of her intuition and her observational skills, and she's right as much as she is wrong. Shenanigans!

Thanks so much for such a great review and I hope you continue to enjoy~

Review #21, by Violet Gryfindor II. Love Story for the Ages

27th August 2013:
Well, it looks like James is more on top of things that Augusta gives him credit for, haha. She's definitely in for it if the rumour mill gets a hold of her, and I can just imagine the capers that will ensue as a result. There needs to be a rule about stories being too much fun to read because now my face hurts from ginning so widely the whole time I read this chapter. It's way too much fun to hear Augusta digging herself into the biggest verbal messes possible. I love how she keeps talking about how hopeless James is when she's often just as bad as he is. The whole lobotomy speech... I can't even think about it without laughing. Brilliantly done, Gubby!

This is one of the rare stories that needs to be written in first person for it to work so well. Much of it relies on Augusta's own brand of insanity, and you make the first person voice highly effective too, such as at the end, when Augusta's mortification sets in. I enjoy her digressions - which are all of just the right length, revealing fantastic things about both James, herself, and the world of Hogwarts at the time (I especially liked the talent show with the image of the cello spitting fireworks - perfect perfection right there). The style is just fantastic, both easy to read and engaging, with many, many laugh-out-loud moments.

That's all the rambling I can manage for the moment. Needless to say I'm loving this story and hope that you're able to write more of it soon. Your writing is, as always, the best of the best.

Author's Response: You know how I love my occasionally unreliable narrators hehe. I love undermining them because mine, at least, tend to be very put-together but secretly aren't at all. And teehee I can promise that many, many capers will ensue (I can't use that phrase without thinking of Gina's Capers, so thanks for that, Gina). I'm so so so happy I can make you happy with this story, Susan! It makes me happy to write too -- and reread, actually, which is a huge deal. That lobotomy speech was a coup, I must admit. I was so afraid it would be too over the top but I'm glad it worked.

Yes, I agree; I think Augusta in anything but first-person wouldn't work nearly as well. Her brand of insanity depends on her assumptions of others' respective brands of insanity, and we'll see it when we meet more people, but she has a lot of assumptions, and she's wrong as many times as she's right. I was nervous about all the digressions too, because there weren't nearly as many in the first draft a year ago. I just love thinking up new things crazy fangirls do in pursuit of their One True Love.

That's plenty of rambling, and it didn't even feel like rambling because everything you say sounds like an eloquent, amazing critique. I'm so so happy you're enjoying it! I have a few chapters prewritten but I don't want to post them all at once because then I'll run out very soon, but rest assured, an update is on the books for the next few weeks! Thank you, thank you, thank you for being an angel!

Review #22, by handknittedsweaters I. God's Practical Joke

21st August 2013:
I always like reading about beautiful people, so James is checking that off the list, and I do like a James who isn't so savvy and good with the girls. Augusta seems like she'll be a pretty awesome character! I like that she had the backbone to tell James she liked him even as a wee fourteen-year-old. Also, your writing style/ this character's voice is so witty and entertaining :) Excited to see what will transpire!

Author's Response: Who doesn't like reading about attractive people? James is a derpy hottie, I think, so hopefully he's fun to read about (he's certainly fun to write). Augusta is really the reason I resurrected the fic in the first place. That voice stuck with me ever since I first wrote this last year. She wouldn't say she had backbone -- more likely she'd use that as evidence of her own idiocy. I'm glad you see that in her, though; there has to be some Gryffindor qualities in her personality. Thanks so much for reviewing and I hope you continue to enjoy!

Haha this is really good! I like how original this story beginning is, at least I haven't read a first chapter quite like this before. Please update soon!

Review #25, by soliloquy I. God's Practical Joke

21st July 2013:

You are a Goddess, but of course, you know that by now.

I love James and his guitar playing and Augusta and this story. And the shiny banner.

This is a wonderful first chapter that introduces us to James in a way that's frankly, original. I love the little bits of meta -- I would tell you a cute story about how that happened, but that's played out and annoying, so no.

THE BEST. I'm looking forward to good quips by Augusta because you write wonderfully witty replies (wow, that alliteration. HAHA) and I'm really looking forward to her observations because you definitely have some awesome, astute meta-observations about real life and fiction and popularity and humans and food.

I love you & this story & I can't wait to squee to you about it later and I'm sorry this doesn't make more sense but I love this. (which i can repeat a couple more hundred times if you'd like)

I'M SO GLAD YOU DECIDED TO POST. AH. -squeals and rolls around on the floor and the bed in a blanket burrito-

♥ ♥ ♥ lots of love!!

Author's Response: TANYA! I'm sorry I didn't give you advance notice! This was a spur of the moment deal. I'm not 100% sure it's up to snuff, but I do love it so much, and I love you more. Hehe I do love my meta lines, and being ~original~. If only I was as good at being quippy irl as Augusta is, I think I'd be set.

This review made me so happy, girlie :) I'm so happy to have you as a reader and friend and I can't wait to see what you think! Thank you for stopping by as always!
