Review #1, by couldyoureallyknow Chapter Four

15th January 2018:
I like how Nellie fully ran into Scorpius and Rose and didn't even think that they could be a possibility as a couple. Well, hopefully she'll figure it out soon!

I'm so excited to see an update to our tale! I know you mentioned this was was more bridge-like but I do enjoy the implications of where we're headed. The continued building of suspicion with Scorpious, Nellie's knowing of how to persuade Al, and even the small interaction of James and Nellie in detention all of it building to some shenanigans ahead! I like how you write your characters, by that I mean their personalities are fully displayed in their reactions and given confirmation through Nellie's thoughts.

I love this story! Please keep updating!

Hi! I really like how Nellie is so sneaky with Scorpius and Albus and that she knows exactly what to say to sort of sway their opinions. I also love how close all of the friends seem to be and how you show it in unique ways every time! So PLEASE update, because I need more of this James-Nellie stuff in my life!!

I have no idea how you've made your characters so well developed so quickly into the story. I absolutely LOVE Flynn - he's so sassy and rude but full of himself. And the way you've written James is so intriguing!

I can't BELIEVE how well you write these characters already! Nellie is so intriguing to me, as is her relationship with her family. She only sees her grandmother twice a year, wouldn't call her father for help, and doesn't like to think about her mother? SO intriguing!!

Nellie's meddling is so entertaining, I don't know whether to laugh or feel sorry for the girl.

James' bluntness and attitude are absolutely hilarious. I totally understand as to why Nellie always feels so frustrated with him but their interactions are hilarious.

Amazing chapter and please do update soon!

Author's Response: I am so glad you find James funny! He only gets wittier and Nellie only gets more frustrated. The next chapter is on its way! Thank you so much for reviewing!!

James. Is. Hilarious. Can't wait for those two to figure out they like each other. It's going go be delightful.

Author's Response: I am SO glad you think so! This next chapter he's not very amusing, but the one after that will certainly satisfy that! Thank you so much for reviewing and please review next chapter as well!

Review #9, by EllieStrange Chapter One

I think this was a great first chapter! I really enjoy your characterization and I can't wait to meet the other characters. I thought the Netflix reference was really done ("never heard of him") and the struggle over the book as well. The funniest fics are the ones who natural scenes like that! I am looking forward to continuing this!

Author's Response: I am so glad you liked those parts! I have the most fun writing the dialogue (as you may be able to tell) so this story should be full of lots of hidden jokes like that! Thank you for reviewing and I hope to hear from you again soon!

Review #10, by MarieBlack Chapter Three

17th December 2017:
Alright. I'm sucked in. Typically I avoid the next gen pieces because they often don't have a strong underlying story outside of the romance department, but MY this has some depth to it. Specifically I like that Burke's family has some mystery to it, it's not all entirely laid out for the reader. The characters around her have back stories and lives and underlying plots to them as well, it's intriguing.

As I said, I'm hooked! I love where this story is headed and how it started, it's incredible writing.

Hope you are able to write again soon!

Author's Response: I'm glad you've picked up on the Burke family mystery, because as the story builds that plot line becomes the main center of the story! I am so glad you like it, and the newest update is now up! Thanks again for your review and I hope you tell me what you think again soon!

Review #15, by Mai Chapter Three

22nd November 2017:
Hey, came back to chapter 3 and once again it was great! Honestly loved everything about it, from the group's little tradition in the beginning to the - kind of - fight between nellie and james.
I actually can't wait to see how the two of them will become a /thing/. (I mean I'm guessing they will be a thing cause it's james/oc but who knows? hahaha).
Also, I LOVE how you're building the characters and their personalities, I'm interested in literally every single one of them???Ņ? (milo's got be a favorite though!)
Anyways, another great chapter! Hoping to read more soon ;)

Author's Response: WOW you are the sweetest! I am so excited that you enjoy it! I love that Milo is your favorite, though - he's probably the most fun character to write! Thank you so much for reviewing and I hope to hear from you again soon!

20th November 2017:
This is off to a great start! How often do you plan on updating? I've read many good fanfics that suddenly become abandoned, so I'm afraid to get too attached to your story.

Author's Response: I have most of the story written out for around the first 20 chapters (I know, overkill) so hopefully I will publish about once every couple of weeks or so! Thank you for reading - I hope you do get attached!

Review #19, by daylight Chapter Two

7th November 2017:
This is so good! Honestly, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how good this is.

Your characters are insanely well-developed, like, impossibly so for just two chapters, and I adore their dynamic. You've managed to totally respect the universe JK Rowling created, and also managed to populate it with enough of your own original characters, and the two seem to meld seamlessly. SO impressive, I'm obsessed, clearly.

I also really appreciate Nellie's relationship with everyone - it's clear each dynamic is developed in its own way, just like real friendships, and I'm also really pleased that Nellie is sometimes teased or makes mistakes - so often writers end up writing their OCs as this perfect creature, but the way you've written her is so realistic! Everyone is witty and amazing, very Ravenclaw - it can be hard to capture the balance between being a normal teenager and a 'nerdy' Ravenclaw, sometimes people go too far in one direction, but you've balanced it so well!!

Anyway, gushing over, well done, can't wait to read more!!

Author's Response: Oh, my God. THANK YOU for such a kind review!! I've worked hard on developing my characters and establishing a dynamic early, and I'm so happy you've noticed it and liked it. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this, and I really hope you give me more commentary for upcoming chapters!!

Review #20, by BBHP Chapter Two

5th November 2017:
I'm okay with another James Potter romance, especially since yours is set up so nicely. I like your descriptions of your characters, and how you showed the little differences between James and Albus. It had me thinking back to how the Weasley boys were described and comparing them. Cornelia seems funny and witty, especially with her frequent Shakespeare quotes, and I like her friendship with Albus and Scorpius and that whole dynamic.

I love the little details like Slughorn asking James if his mother ever told him how she got into the club. Things like that that directly link back to the original characters make me so happy! I'm so looking forward to reading more.

Author's Response: Thank you so much!! I'm glad you like the hidden details, there will be a lot more of them coming! Thank you so much for reviewing, I really appreciate it!

Review #21, by Lizzie Chapter Two

4th November 2017:
This is a really good start, but since Iím a stickler for canon I canít help to point out that if Al is in his sixth year than James should have already left Hogwarts since heís two years above him. But I donít think you write what year Al was in, it was just the fact of him being a prefect for another year that got me. Also, since Iím a staunch James Potter supporter I canít say Iím a fan of how fanon makes him into a bad boy and manages to put him down by making him shorter than his little brother. Like, if heís going to be rude, arrogant and obnoxious, at least give him something good, like not having his much nicer two years younger brother taller than him... personal pet peeve lol, so Iím just ignoring that you wrote it and going to appreciate that at least you didnít make James a red head hehee

Nellie is an intriguing character, quick to feel slighted but itís clear she really cares about her friends. Canít wait to learn more about her!

Author's Response: Hi, thanks for reviewing! With the short thing, I only made James a smidge shorter. However, if you remember from the books Al looks exactly like Harry, who is rather tall and lanky (maybe 6' 2"). I wanted to make James slightly shorter (maybe 6' 1") and more muscularly defined to balance that out, since he is more traditionally attractive than Al. Hope this helps, thanks again for reviewing!

Review #22, by NH Stadler Chapter One

1st November 2017:
Hi there! So I've read this first chapter two days ago but didn't have time to leave a review... and it bugged me that I didn't, because it really deserves more reviews.

I really loved the setting of the chapter and your descriptions made the scene come to live very nicely. Cornelia is a likeable protagonist and I rooted for her from the very beginning. I do have a soft spot for reluctant pureblood characters with complicated family backgrounds so I was instantly hooked :).

Congratualtions on a great first chapter! I will definitely come back for the next one :) Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for the kind review!! It certainly gives me all the encouragement I need to keep writing. Thank you so much for reviewing!
