Review #1, by MargaretLane Tantrum

17th March 2015:
I've decided to review a story or two of yours, mostly because there are a few that sound really awesome, and also because you're so fantastic about reviewing everybody else.

LOVE the introductory paragraphs. They sound so authentic for a child's voice and I can TOTALLY imagine Fred and George trying to trying a younger sibling up as an apprentice, so to speak.

And I'm not sure they did such a bad job. Ginny seems like she's capable of a few pranks in canon.

"Tantrums" shouldn't have an apostrophe before the "s" as it's not a possessive.

Youngest kids can get away with so much if they get upset. Everybody thinks the older ones MUST have been mean to them, and if the older ones try complaining about the younger ones being mean, they just get, "ah, she didn't know any better," or "sure, what could she do?" or "did you do something to her first?"

And poor Ron. The older kids won't let him play with them, so he's stuck with his baby sister.

I love the idea of Ginny being protective of him. It seems in character for her.

You've a couple of paragraphs with no spaces between them in the middle.

The comment about Molly having superpowers amused me. Mummy-powers.

*laughs at Molly sending Fred and George to Arthur* He's not HALF as scary as she is.

I love the way you write the children and how well you capture their voices.

For the HPFF Fundraiser.

For the House Cup 2014 Review
I love how having a little sister wasn't quite what they expected.
"It wasn't our fault that toys were flimsy and breakable these days" great line! as well as "there was no need to tell on us.
I like how we see hints of their future in merchandising inventions. Cool Story!
--Freda

Author's Response: Haha, it isn't what they expected at all, they're so used to dealing with boys that having a sister around is a lot for them to get used too.

Haha thosee boys are funny! :D

Thank you so much!

Review #3, by Akussa Tantrum

Hi, I'm here for the balckout bingo round 3!

This was just so, so cute and funny! First off, I love how you got this narrative from the person of George Weasley, horrible little 6 years old! Seriously, I think you really capture the "innocence" and just the naivety of childhhod in this pice. It was very well written.

The ideas of the boys (theaching her to make Ron mad was just hilarious) as to exactly why do we have sisters and their use was brilliant. And Ginny, already the firecracker she was in adolescence! You did a great job making the children themselves as we knew them in the books, keeping their personalities intact but with the added touch of pure happinss and joy of childhood.

Great job with the descriptive also, it was like seeing the owrld through a child's eye. Not too adult in their view of the world, not too much details because kids don't care for that. Just an overall, feel good little story, great job!

Author's Response: Hey!! :D

Hehe thank you :D oh yes, George and Fred weren't very friendly or nice 6 year olds. They were quite mean. :P

Haha Thank you so very much for your review! :D And for your very kind words. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get their characterisation right, so I'm glad to hear that I did. :D

Review #4, by TheHeirOfSlytherin Tantrum

For Blackout Bingo.

Hey, Tammi!

A story in little George's PoV. I love little twin stories, they're so adorably mischievous and this was so cool. Ginny is evil, I stand by this assessment fully. She is an evil, evil little monster with nasty tricks up her sleeve, like tantrums. Ah, they are the worst! (I should know, if any of my family had read this story they'd be swearing that you've written a story about me when I was a brat, I mean kid. :P)

I loved the end so much, the lie about it being Ron who did it. I can totally imagine the twins saying that and it was brilliant how Arthur seemed to believe them. Although, saying that he has two boys who are very well behaved was stretching it a bit. Oh, just wait till they're older. :P

I really enjoyed reading this!

Sam.

Author's Response: Hey, Sam! :D

I love stories of Fred and George when they're younger, so I had so much fun writing this one. I can imagine them as being uncontrollable.

I agree with you, she is totally evil and has many nasty tricks up her sleeve and she can get away with everything because she's the only girl in a family full of boys. Haha :O Maybe subconciously I was writing about you?!

I'm so glad that you liked that part, poor Ron will always get blamed by the twins. Arthur is just in a state of denial about it all though.

Thank you so much Sam! :D

Blackout battle~

Hiya Tammi, let me start out by saying the summary made me absolutely giggle. I'm excited to read this story!

"Such as dolls, and flowers and Ron." Ahahah, I loved this line!

I loved all the little references here, like "being as bad as Percy" and "eyes in the back of her head." I don't think I've stopped giggling since reading this story.

Oh Ginny, you are a little trouble maker, aren't you?

Anyway, I absolutely loved this story!

Liz

Author's Response: Hahaha I'm glad that the summary caught your eye. :P

Oh how I love that line too! :D

Awww I'm glad that you noticed those lines. :D I thought that they would be perfect things for the twins to say.

She is a big trouble maker!

Thank you so much for the review, I'm really glad that you loved this story. :D

Haha, I love it. It was funny when you said that Ginny liked girly stuff like dolls and Ron! That made me laugh. I so wanted to read more.

HEG

Author's Response: Haha, I'm so glad! Yep, the twins think that Ron is pretty girly. :P I'm temtped to start a story from all the kids POVs when they're younger? Maybe one day.
