Review #1, by MeeshsWand Honesty

6th August 2015:
I like to read a bit before jumping in with criticism - good or bad. I like this story. It's keeping my interest and I want to read more. Keep it up!

Author's Response: Hello!

I do the same thing! That's fair enough!

Oooh, I'm glad I've got your interest. I shall try!

I know where this stories going, it's just not easy to get there. Do you know what I mean? I'm getting there. Stick with me?

Thanks for the review!

Review #2, by Freda_and_Georgina They Fell

I know I reviewed the third chapter before this one, but that's kind of what I do, figured the two chapters I did get reviewed would not have that many in the long run. Moving on to this chapter: I love it! I really like how you have the characters and the situations are so realistic. You know, as real as a Seer in Hogwarts can get.

Love the plot line, characters, and conversations of this.

Happy Review Hot Seat Day!!!

James, man up! haha Hope is more of a Gryffindor than James is, I can't believe he didn't even have the guts to break up with a girl properly and had his friend break up with her for him. Omg.

Wow that vision she saw was pretty cryptic and mysterious. But even more mysterious than that is the letter she got afterwards! That's what is really making me wonder because it makes me think that someone is controlling her visions or something, I mean why else would they send and equally cryptic owl? And how are they going to use that information? So much to think about after this chapter!

If you don't mind a bit of CC, it might help to note at the beginning of the chapter that it's jumped forward a few years? I started this chapter thinking they were still in first year and then was confused. :p

But that's only a minor thing. This was a great chapter and I love how you're building up this mystery around her vision. Great work :D

Author's Response: Hey Kristin!

Thank you! I'm so behind on my reviews, *bows head in shame*, I will get them done though. Promise!

I know, Hope puts up with a lot being friends with this wimp (I love him though)!

I've decided that being a Seer isn't as useful as it may seem. You get creepy messages and are expected to do something with them! That's not entirely fair, but that's the way it is. There is a lot to think about! This was my aim (Yay! So glad it worked out!)!

I don't mind at all and that is really helpful! Heading down to fix it now!

Thank you so much! I've loved having you here in my reviews!

Review #4, by Freda_and_Georgina No, I'm good

10th January 2015:
You can't imagine how happy it makes me that James calls her H. I call my little sister by her first initial and everyone thinks it's weird. This chapter is so nice, tangible, and interesting.

Keep the chapters coming!

Author's Response: Hey Georgina!

Aww! I'm so glad that's made you happy! That's made me feel really good! I love calling people my their initals. I just think H works best!

Thank you so much! Love hearing your views!

Review #5, by Diogenissa Newly Enrolled Ravenclaw

2nd January 2015:
Heyllooo Emz! Happy Belated Hufflepuff Hotseat Day! (sorry this is SO late--RL has been hectic :( ).

On with the show!


I love how you open this with the way of presenting the general ideas behind seers, as well as how Hope points out that no matter what a seer tells you, in reality it is WE that are in control of our destiny (with the obvious exceptions of those things out of our hands). It is a strong reminder of how one must take personal responsibility. Cool cool cool!

I also like how she later explains what happens to her as a Seer, as well as the description of the couple of dreams she had, now how many people can say they in a way met Shakespeare?! (I know I'm jumping a bit but I wanted to keep the Seer topic altogether).

Ahh I love how she describes James and needless to say, my opinion is not very high of him initially. In fact, taking into account what Hope says of him in general, my first impressions were still 'no no no no' *lol* This guy is just a bit too much! However, listening to her back up her thoughts on him as a genuinely nice person was a good way to give the reader an overall sense of him both the good and the not-so-good.

Blake is quite interesting--despite being a 'bad boy', he seems so different than his partner in crime, as well as more laid-back (and willing to stick with one girl for longer than a week!). I like his calm demeanor and appears to be more stable in a way (that's the only way I could think of describing my initial impression).

I must admit to being slightly annoyed when those two made a federal announcement in front of everyone (I can just picture Professor McGonagall's reaction). However, it -did- get their point across and ensured to Hope that she could trust them and it was nice to see that she finally took that leap of faith. That was another thing they had in common aside from their friendship, if anything it made that first foundation that much stronger.

Overall a lovely story darlin'! Hope is a great OC who felt very real and very human: everything from her fears and anxieties to her wanting of friends. You have a nice talent for description and visuals which were rather colorful, especially that dream with the fish! And the several morals presented here from the one of personal responsibility to the one with true friends was really awesome and dare say probably what I loved most.

Good job and thank you for a great first chapter! :)

Happy Review Hot Seat Day!!

This immediately caught my attention as I see it was written for an Iliad challenge and I loved the Iliad. And it's about Seers! How awesome.

I like your explanation of how Seers' powers work in the beginning. How it's not exactly the future, it's just snippets and often it's more confusing than not because you don't know if it's a warning or inevitable. The idea of seeing the future is just so interesting. I like how you drew attention to it.

It also seems quite reasonable that Hope would conceal the fact that she's a Seer from everyone except her best friends and her parents- I imagine that would get tiring if people came up to her all the time to ask "what's in store for my future?" or "will I end up marrying James Potter?" haha. Better to keep that info on the down low :p

It sounds scary, to have these flashes of Seeing and the fainting in class! And what odd, cryptic dreams. I wonder what they all mean.

Aw! James and Blake's display of friendship for Hope was cute. Yes, it's silly, but I would expect no less from them as they're eleven :p And the way the two of them finish each other's sentences - they're basically destined to be friends forever haha. I'm glad Hope told them her secret as it would be hard to keep something like that from your best friends.

Great job! :)

Author's Response: Why thank you marauderfan! Thank you very much! :P

I literally love ancient literature and Seer's, well, I think they're just really interesting!

I knew I wanted to write about a Seer, but who they actually see into the future was something I really had to think about! That was the result!

Exactly, she does not want to be bombarded with stupid questions! I imagine Seers, if they're taken seriously, to be taken advantage of as well- but Hope is smart enough not to be affected by this!

Well, if you want to know you'll have to keep reading! :P

I was worried it would seem a bit far-fetched that James and Blake would do that. Saying that though, I have no doubt in James' confidence, I can really see him doing that! I love the finishing each others sentence thing, most of my stories have that in, I create friends for life that way!

Thank you so much for all your lovely compliments! It means a lot!

*Big Hugs*

Author's Response: Hey Georgie!
Thank you so much :)
I'm really glad you're enjoying it!!!
I'll update asap, I have to update one story, then another, then this one. (I've got a few too many WIPs going on at once- so if it's a long time just hang in there, I will finish the story sooner rather than later!)
No, thank you so much for a fabby review!! :)
