Review #3, by mirrorwing74 Interrogated

4th June 2016:
Just curious you responded to a review at the end of July 2015 saying additional chapters would be up shortly so my question is what is your idea of shortly? 11 months isn't exactly my idea of it. Also friendly reminder it has been almost 2 years since your last update.

Author's Response: Thanks for pointing out how slack I am. Shortly pertains to whenever my muse sees fit to let me work on this. I'm doing an edit/overhaul on it too, so the new chapters won't be ready until after that =)

Review #4, by Leebees85 The Plot Thickens

13th November 2015:
Okay I'm finally getting around to writing a review. I came a little late into this story and have read everything in the past couple of days and I must say bravo! This is the best story I've read on here, I never thought much about the potters, Remus, Sirius or snape. Since we found out about how they were at Hogwarts in the books I just went with that and never questioned it, but I'm so glad you wrote about it.

As for hopes in the story, I want Hermione to stay in the past because her leaving would be #1 kind of awkward for future Sirius, and #2 The way it's described they seem destined for each other. I do wonder how it will work though in the future, if Hermione saves everyone then she wouldn't have fought with Harry in the future and know all the defensive spells and everything, but it'll work out either way.

Please please keep writing, and post ASAP.

Oh and could you let Hermione beat up Lucius again, that was one of my favorite parts.

Author's Response: We'll see how it goes with Lucius. He's insidious enough that he may make further appearances. =) I'm pleased you're enjoying the story.

Review #6, by Alice M. The Plot Thickens

30th July 2015:
I love your stories, I really do, and it's nice that you have such a vivid imagination that you can write so many different ones. I just wish you would finish some of them instead of always starting new ones. Like this one for example: it's a beautiful story and I would love to know what happens next...

Author's Response: I'v been working on additional chapters for this story. They should be up shortly. It will be finished eventually, however I have been blocked on this story for several months now and have only just managed to break-through the blockage.

Perhaps if you prefer stories that are finished, you should add a 'complete' filter to your story search from now on.

Review #7, by Chloe The Plot Thickens

17th July 2015:
Can you just change the status to abandoned and stop the anticipation to be done with it, your causing us pain do you not realise

Author's Response: Actually Chloe I can't 'just change the status to abandoned'. This story will be updated eventually. When I have the time and the chapters to post. However, until then it remains a WIP.
If you have such a problem with incomplete stories that are still being written, try adding the 'complete' filter to your story searches in future.

Review #10, by LittleMissAutumn Of Quidditch and Werewolves

22nd April 2015:
I had to come back and review this chapter because it was one of my favorites! Lupin and Hermione sharing a steamy make-out session just exploded all of my inner fan girl feels and I was so giddy. This chapter, as your entire story, was very well done.

To reply back to your response on my other review since there isn't a reply button there, I'm really happy to know that my review helped you bring your mojo back! :) Hermione's going to try and find a girl for Snape to fancy but I just thought that it'd be amusing to see that plan backfire onto him having affections for her. He needs to learn though that you need to have friends and not just those that you deserve romantically, as he did for Lily, so it would help show some character development.

I hope you have a pleasant rest of your day/evening! :)


Author's Response: Thanks so much. You're seriously the coolest. I'm going to try and get a new chapter written tonight. We'll see how I go =)

Review #11, by LittleMissAutumn The Plot Thickens

22nd April 2015:
Oh goodness I just spent my entire day reading this story but it was well worth it. I love how Hermione and Sirius' relationship grew and how they're finally together although the war is starting! I understand writer's block completely as I am currently guilty of it but hopefully this review sparks some inspiration!

I think Severus finding someone new to focus his attention on is a a good idea but as I too have become as Sevione shipper then I think it would be interesting if he started to set his sights on our dear Hermione since she's tried to help him. I know it won't work out and it will draw Sirius absolutely bonkers but I think it'd be interesting! I think just knowing that he has a friend should help him, even if nothing romantic comes out of it but that's just my opinion.

Update soon please! :)

Author's Response: You're a genius! Why did I not think of this myself! You've awoken the plunnies for this story! Argh! I could hug you! *sends virtual hugs*

Totally got a new plan for this fic! Woohoo!

Seriously, I've never been so happy to receive a review before! YAY!

Review #13, by noturavggurl The Plot Thickens

16th April 2015:
In response to your requests for help with this plot, here are my suggestions: Keep Hermione and Sirius together, please, please, please! Yes, you've opened a path with Severus, but perhaps you could have Albus find Severus a potions mentor out of country, Severus could go away and fall in love with a beautiful blonde Swedish witch? or something? And while Severus is away, he could invent Wolfsbane? Anyhoo, I'm hoping you have an update on this story soon! I like that Hermione was able to "tame" Remus' wolf side, and I LOVE Hermione and Sirius together.

Author's Response: Hey,
Thanks so much for reviewing this for me I'm glad you enjoying the story. =)

I love your story so much. Its my favorite Hermione/Sirius fic out there! Its killing me, that you don't update... don't do this to me. don't do this to us.. I am sorry if I am asking too much of you, but I can't rest without reading the rest of this beautiful, touching and amazing story. This was my first fanfiction, and I have already read it twice waiting for the update. I just love it... I'm sure I told you that already. Please continue writing and making hpff the best website to visit.

Phoenix Warrior.

Author's Response: Hey,

There is an update on the way very soon actually. I hope you'll enjoy it. Should be up in a week or two.

I really am liking this. Are you still working on it? If so, when are you expecting to add more chapters?
Also, how many chapters do you think this story will have?
Thanks and keep it up!

Author's Response: Hello,

I am still working on it. I'm hoping to have it finished before the end of the year, but I can't promise they'll be out at specific times. I hit a block with this one, so hopefully I can unplug it and get it finished =)

Review #20, by Jackie The Plot Thickens

8th December 2014:
100% in love with this story. I think plot wise don't make Snape fall in love with Hermione, just make them really good friends and introduce a new character for him to fall in love with.

Author's Response: That was my plan, I'm just not sure where to pull a character from that will love Snape, and that will actually distract him from his obsession with Lily... Thanks so much for reviewing. I will try to update this story soon =) Happy Christmas!

Hey ,
Pls update soon and all that( I figured you'd be getting bored from all the comments you're getting about updating soon and how your story is fantastic -I'm not saying it's not fantastic- I'm trying to be a supportive reader here )
Lia Petrova
P.S : Are u on quotev ?

Author's Response: Hi Lia,

Thank you for the support I'm working on a new story at the moment called the Accursed Twenty-Eight (don't bother looking I haven't uploaded any of it yet) And so everything else of mine is pretty much on hiatus. I want to try and get this one finished by the end of the year or preferrably the end of November.

I promise I will update Embracing the Madness eventually. Apologies for the delays. =)


P.S. I don't know what quotev is... I'm on HPFF and Fanfiction dot net. =)

Review #23, by casual_chaos Oldest Friends

10th November 2014:
Hey Ellie!

I've seen you post in the 'Review the Person Above' thread so I thought I'd stop by your story again. I need to take a break from trying to be all constructive and critical so I'll just review this one as I go, hope you don't mind!

Okay, I love the beginning of this chapter, particularly the mention of how certain information wouldn't be printed in school books in the seventies. And the details about the wands were really interesting!

Ah, the return of Crookshanks! I always loved that cat. I'm really glad Hermione found him and bought him. I'm not sure as to why the cat would react in a way it did when Hermione touched him. Cats are not really trusty with people (if it were a dog, I would completely understand) and Crookshanks couldn't possibly remember Hermione because... physics. :D But if that's how you wanted it to be, that's okay, it's your story after all! :)

''Albus smiled at her. Mostly to hide his shock that she knew the names of boys she had never met in this life.''

This seems strange because the story has been from Hermione's POV until now so she couldn't really know the real reason for his smile.

Hahah, I think I'd die of mortification if my headmaster offered to buy me undergarments. Ah, how uncomfortable, that whole scene, I love it. :D

''Can I try them on?'' Hermione asked when she had five pairs of pants some in different colours, some different styles, a skirt, a dress and twelve blouses and a jacket and three jumpers and two pair of flannel pyjamas.

Aaaand, three hours later, Hermione finally leaves the shop. Hahah, I just pictured her trying out this huge bunch of clothes and can't stop chuckling.

The part about the candles and how it reminded her of her mother is really sweet. :)

Baaah, the part about the castle responding to the wishes of its inhabitants is just wonderful!

And Sirius seems quite nice. Sarcastic but not rude, that's always a good thing in my books!

But I don't think James would ever be so mean to the girl he was supposed to like. I don't know, this might be just me but it seemed forced and a bit OOC. I hope Lily and Hermione will eventually grow to like each other, because unnecessary girl hate makes me sad.

All in all, I liked this chapter. The dialogue was great and I thought you handled her trying to blend into the seventies really well. There were some typos/mistakes (you capitalized Mum and Dad when you shouldn't have) but they didn't take away from the story. I'm interested in the rest so when I finally post in my review thread, you can request for the third chapter, if you want! I hope the next review will be a bit more constructive. :P


Author's Response: Hey Andy,

Thanks so much for getting to this. I love getting reviews!

With Crookshanks I was kind of going for the idea that even though Crooks doesn't know her, he is sort of destined to be her familiar and so is tolerant of her. My cat is a bit like that. The minute I picked him the first time he started purring and rubbing his head on my chin =)

And I totally agree about James seeming a little OOC. I wanted to make him a little less cliche. In all the other James/Lily stories I've read he's so impossibly in love with Lily that all he does is pant after her and I didn't want that, though after this chapter we learn that he's still desperately in love with her don't worry.

I will definitely be re-requesting for the next chapter! Thanks again!

Review #24, by casual_chaos Starting Anew

7th November 2014:
Hey Ellie!

I hope you don't mind me switching to first name but I always find it strange calling people by their account name, no matter how cool it is (and yours is so awesome). I noticed you've joined the Hufflepuff House so I wish you a warm welcome to the best house there is! I was really glad to see you join us! :)

Also, I'm sorry it took me so long to review! Real life has kept me away from hpff for a while. But I'm here now, yay!

Okay, to start off, I have to warn you that Hermione is one of my favourite characters in HP and out of great fear of having her badly written, I avoid reading fics about her (hence my 'no Dramione' rule). Because of this, I will probably comment if she happens to be acting OOC. I have nothing against characters being OOC but she seems to be my pet-peeve. I just wanted to establish this so you know what to expect. :) So far, I like what you've done with her!

I have never read a time travel story with Hermione going back to the Marauders era. I think this is a popular trope in fanfiction (is it?) so I'm really curious about how it will turn out. I like the concept of your story so far. The first chapter was a good introduction of the main characters (though I assume more of them will show up eventually) and to the plot, which is engaging and leaves the reader curious about the rest. As for the structure of this first chapter, I have a suggestion. I think it would be very effective if the chapter started with Hermione already being in the Marauders era, as in just regaining consciousness and finding two boys staring down at her. She could then simply recall the events that had led to her state of being; that way you could say everything you already said but the beginning would have a more dramatic effect. :) The remainder of the chapter was nicely done, the flow was consistent and the length was just enough for us to get the feel of where the story would be going.

I found it very fitting for Hermione to test a spell in order to improve the quality of her essay. I also liked the fact that she immediately thought she saw Harry, instead of James. Also, your description of the differences between older and younger versions of Sirius were really good and I was happy you mentioned it, it was a very important detail. Though I have a bit of concrit regarding Sirius' looks. It feels like he may be 'too good-looking', if you know what I mean? There's nothing wrong with people being well built or pretty but having it mentioned too many times turns them into some sort of unnatural creatures. I think it's really important to remember that your goal is to write about real people, because you want real people (i.e. the readers) to connect with your characters. I was glad you didn't do this with Hermione and I believe that toning down Sirius' looks just a little might make him a more convincing character. I can't say much about your characterization of the rest of the Marauders because they haven't appeared much here. I like Sirius already but it's hard to say anything about James, Remus and Peter. I'm really interested in how you'll portray James, though.

I must say I liked your Dumbledore! I like everything that involves Dumbledore in any way, though I'm terrified of writing him. :D But I think you did a good job with him, regarding his way of speaking and his good-naturedness. And the idea of him being Hermione's godfather was my favourite part! It would be so cool to have Dumbledore as a godfather, I'm kinda jealous of her. Though she did find herself in a tough situation, being stuck in the past with no way of returning. I'm actually really curious about how you'll decide to end this. The summary says she will fall in love with Sirius so it will probably be hard for her to go back to the present, when he's no longer alive. But her best friends are in the present, as well as her entire life... Like I said, I'm really curious about this! :)

All in all, I think it was a good first chapter; it left the reader interested in the plot and your portrayals of the main characters were detailed enough for us to have a good feel of their personalities. I hope this was helpful and thank you for requesting!


Author's Response: Thank Andy!

I know what you mean about over-exaggerating the looks of a character. I wanted to really point out the difference though between the Sirius she had known (after him spending so long in Azkaban, ravaged by grief and loss) in comparison to when he is young and carefree. JK also describes all the Black's as being impossibly handsome as well, so I wanted to really capture that.

I really like your idea for switching the chapter up a bit too and making the events leading to her current situation a flashback. I do find when I read it that it's a little flat at the beginning. I'll definite;y give re-writing it a shot =)

I'm glad you liked Dumbledore too, I'm also terrified of writing him because he's so hard to get right. I couldn't resist making him her 'godfather' for this story, simply because it would be so cool to have him! Not to mention his curious nature would want to make sure she stayed close (since I've made time-travel not possible in their time yet) where he could keep an eye on her.

To be honest, I can't decide how I want it all to go. I know that if I was hurled back through time and made friends and fell in love, I would be reluctant to leave.

Anyway, thank you so much for this review, and the welcome to the Puffs =) I'll see what I can do about switching up the order a little and probably be back for a re-request on the next chapters =)
