Review #1, by Freda_and_Georgina Hatred of Hogwarts' House Elves Holiday Decorations

11th July 2014:
Ah, those kind of couples. The kind that really don't want to get together but at the same time kind of want to get together. Those are the kind that just make me smile to myself and think "just you wait, it'll happen." It's interesting how you managed to semi-introduce the different cousin's personalities by simply saying what James would do with them. Overall, nice story; I can't think of much to write because it's nice.
2014 House Cup Review

Author's Response: Firstly, thank-you for the review, it's much appreciated. It's also nice to know my writing is actually being read by somebody.

Secondly, thank-you for being so nice about it, I wasn't too sure about them and don't know if I want to go back to James and Frankie - I wasn't sure if I even wanted them to get together?

The cousins, where to start... I wanted them to be devious little things who have inherited a disregard for rules and have been raised in Weasley Wizard Wheezes store cupboards. I needed Molly to have some of Percy in her, a bit stuffy at times, but I think she'll be very sharp, very witty. Dominique, she needed to have a temper and also to be slightly sadistic. In my opinion, Victoire will always be the golden girl and Dominique will have too much of her mother's charm and her uncle's mischief for her own good. The others I think are fairly good comparisons to their parents/other family members, but with their own twists.

Thank you for reviewing once again, I feel like I've rambled... Anyway, thanks.

Review #2, by adluvshp Hatred of Hogwarts' House Elves Holiday Decorations

6th March 2014:
Blackout battle!

This was a cute little piece. I enjoyed your portrayal of James very much.
The idea of house-elves planting mistletoe and putting the "charm" on it was hilarious and it was adorable how James got stuck under it.
I was highly amused by the parts where James is thinking what he could be doing instead of being stuck. It made me chuckle.
I also enjoyed Frankie's characterisation. It was very different from how we've seen Neville and I liked that.
The kiss scene had just the right amount of hormones and post-kiss-awkwardness in it haha.
The dialogue was over all quirky and fun to read, and the story idea pretty cute.
The best part of this was the ending. It wasn't cliche at all (thank merlin) that they'd suddenly want to go out or something - things went back to normal (sort of, at least for the time being) and nothing happened too fast, and that was good.
All in all, I enjoyed this as it made for a fun and refreshing read.

Good job!

Author's Response: Thanks!

This is my first go at writing from the boy's point of view, well, main story wise anyway, and I was terrified I'd get it too one sided or completely unrealistic, so, thank-you again for the review, means a lot.
