Review #1, by PaulaTheProkaryote Troublemakers

6th March 2016:
For HPFFs Review-a-Thon

Personally, I think having a motherly friend is a great thing to have. Im definitely that person in my group though so I might be slightly biased. Somebody has to rope in the wild ones.

Tongue twisters? Thats a new one for detentions. I like that he sent Sirius a message to come save him because no doubt hed drop everything and come to the rescue! They are just asking for more trouble though.

James and Sirius together are such a hilarious, but annoying pair. I actually feel quite a bit of sympathy for all of the Hogwarts professors now. Would it even be worth giving them detentions if you had to supervise them for a few hours?

They do have a perfectly viable point though. Why in the world would anyone sift thistles? My only explanation is that they became another one of those craft phases like canning jars in house decor or cotton branches in wreaths or driftwood as fireplace mantels. Mr. Theophiles Thistle probably was just trying to cash in on the profit with his abundance of thistles.

I digressed greatly, but Im not deleting it because I think it was insightful.

I cant stop laughing at perhaps he was struck by a different mood

Only those two would put so much theatrics into getting out a detention. Poor bewildered old Professor Ginger.

I loved the storyline and I dont even know how in the world you came up with this. Unicorns? Pianos? Tongue twisters? Ball gowns? It was too much in such a good way. Overall, you did an absolutely excellent job writing this cute little fic!

Author's Response: Hey Paula!
Thank you so much for this sweet review.

I totally agree with you about motherly friends. I love them.
Haha I love that thought you had about the worth of detention with them. I guess that's why they have separate detentions. I know I certainly wouldn't want to have detention with the two of them together.

I love your thoughts on the purpose of sifting thistles. Part of the reason I put that in there was because I was also confused. And if I was confused I would hope teenage boys would also be confused.

To be quite honest with you I'm not sure where this whole idea came from either. The plunny just hopped into my head and I went for it.

Thank you again,

Oh my gosh, this is so funny. I have no idea how you came up with such a ludicrous idea, but I love it!

James and Sirius, singing and dancing in detention with canes and glitter and unicorns! What a pair! They are quite creative in their troublemaking aren't they? I can just imagine this elderly Professor Ginger just absolutely baffled by what's going on in front of her! haha!

Definitely a very talented pair too. The talking patronus thing is difficult I hear. And transfiguring a desk into a unicorn! Wow, if I could do that I would never stop. Unicorns everywhere! Unicorns for all!

Thanks for sharing this fun story!

Author's Response: Hey Stefani!
Thank you so much for this review! I'm not exactly sure how I thought this up either, but it hopped into my head and I went for it. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it. :)

They definitely are talented. It was actually brought to my attention, however, that the talking patronus most likely wasn't created yet. I've changed it now to something that seems more likely.

Thanks again for such a lovely review!

Review #3, by alicia and anne Troublemakers

YAY! I love a good story about the marauders! They bring me joy :D

And James has to write lines :D I wonder what tomfoolery he done to deserve this punishment?

Awww I really like Professor Ginger, she seems really awesome and the kind of teacher that everyone needs, and that seems like the best way to serve detention.

Oh god those tongue twisters are so hard! I'm glad that I'm not the one saying those out loud, it was hard enough doing it in my head.

Hahah I love that Sirius has a annoy-the-teacher-with-questions-that-don't-really-have-a-point thing. I can totally imagine him being that kind of person, and I love that it was to get James out of detention haha.


I just love the mental images I have now of them singing and dancing. :D

This was so hilarious and very well written :D I've enjoyed it so much

Author's Response: Hi Tammi!
Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm very glad that you liked it. I actually based Professor Ginger off a teacher like that. :P I purposely found hard tongue twisters to make the unintended punishment even worse. I'm glad that you found them hard. Yay! I'm glad you liked the singing part! I struggled writing that bit, I wasn't sure how to show the image in my mind. It means a lot that you liked it.

Thank you so much!

Review #4, by Beeezie Troublemakers

Hey, Panda! I'm here for BvB!

I loved this premise so much. Those are the best commercials, and they fit troublemakers like James and Sirius so well. And, while this may have been less intentional, I also liked the normalcy of this detention compared with Harry's detentions writing lines, which was quite a bit more sinister than this.

Of course, the tongue twisters are their own form of torture. Poor James - I can't believe she kept him at it for an hour! He's much more patient (and much better at tongue twisters) than I would be in his situation.

And then, of course, came the musical. If anyone would do something that absurd, of course it would be James and Sirius. Poor Professor Ginger - keeping someone at tongue twisters for an hour is cruel, but I'm not sure that even tongue twisters warrant a ball grown and confetti. :P

My only quibble is that I'm not totally sure that James would have been able to cast a talking Patronus while he and Sirius were still in school; I thought Dumbledore had invented that? The two way mirrors would have made more sense to me. Then again, the musical was so amazingly implausible that it doesn't even really matter, haha.

Overall, though, this was hilarious - I loved it. Amazing job.

Author's Response: Hey there Branwen!
Thank you for this fabulous review!

I really enjoyed making James do all of those tongue twisters. I can imagine him being patient about it but inside furiously boiling away. And Professor Ginger was just having too much fun!

I didn't even think about the talking Patronus happening after this. You are definitely right, the mirrors would make a lot more sense. I'll have to go back and change that when I have time. Thank you so much for pointing that out!

Review #5, by carry on with your knitting Troublemakers

13th January 2016:

It's katie here from the forums! (carry on with your knitting) I'm just working my way through the challenge entries!

This was such a fun and creative piece to read, I loved it! I watch the original before reading this, and it just fits their characters perfectly, so really well done with that!
I thought the way you included an actual musical number was brilliantly cheese and fitted brilliantly for this story challenge!

Also the bit at the end when they walk away bickering is just so James and Sirius!

I lovely entry! Very well done!

Katie :)

Author's Response: Hello Katie!
Thank you for this sweet review! I'm really pleased that you thought it worked with the musical. I had a lot of fun writing it and your challenge was a fabulous idea. I can't wait to see what other people did with their musicals.

Thanks again,
