Review of chapter "Witch Hunt" from Jazzibear
I should say at the outset that I hugely enjoy everything of yours that I have read. I enjoy rereading the stories as much as or more than I did on my first reading. The characters are all well drawn, the dialogue is all believable (it passes the reading-aloud test with ease), the writing is suffused with gentle humour: in fact, what’s not to like?
I spotted something for the first time in Witch Hunt today that intrigues me: Minister Dent likes his staff to keep a towel in their desks, and that rang a bell. Does the minister perhaps have a problem with Thursdays? His given name is never Arthur, is it?
I am dismayed at how slow on the uptake I am, but I dare say that I’m not going to change now.
I do long for updates. I want to know what is happening in the Elysian Fields Guest House, and what is going on in Buffy’s library, and the doings of Portal Lady, and, and …
But I also want the excellence of the writing to remain undiluted – so there we are.
Edit: I have just come upon your note about the non-relationship between Minister Dent and the famous Arthur Dent. I should stop trying to be clever: it’s obviously beyond me.

Review of chapter "Witch Hunt" from TwoBlackDragons
For some reason there's a space between the end of a lot of your sentences and question marks, like the example below. It happened in Girl in a Bar as well.
"Why 'in theory' ?" asked a curious Hermione, dodging a signpost.

Review of chapter "On Becoming Wandless" from robertlisle
I've really enjoyed this series. This is a nice transition to the rest of the series, getting Ginny to Cleveland that is.

Review of chapter "On Becoming Wandless" from IntoOblivion
It was really interesting to see more of the wizarding worlds connection with muggle magic organisations and getting to see the development of Ginnys powers. The trip to the Burrow was a really nice touch, the family felt just right and I look forward to reading more of you writing them.
One potential correction:
"Yes, but it's nothing new. But I'm sure you can manage it." He looked at her hopefully.
the second 'but' here seemed a bit superfluous to me.

Review of chapter "And if I say yes?" from faithfan
"We don't allow phones or computers but you can bring an owl with you. We don't have our own. We would like you to be ready by the middle of February so --- you can spend a few weeks with Miss Rosenberg before we need her."-----
Apart from ginny training with the coven, did she spend any time in england with willow? that part of the story is missing.
Comments from author:
(Assuming you haven't gotten there by now) Ginny spends time with Willow in the following stories when she's in Cleveland. Willow really makes only minor appearances in this part of the series. She's off doing other things.

Review of chapter "On Becoming Wandless" from DonSample
I was somewhat surprised to find this story on jrabbit's "Most under-reviewed stories" list, so I thought I would help to rectify that.
Like the rest of this series, this is a very nice character piece, giving us a nice glimpse at Ginny's life, and how the Wizarding world interacts with the Muggle. I may be 'borrowing' a few of your concepts of how the Wizarding world works for my "Best Laid Schemes" if I continue it.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the comments (and 'borrow' whatever concepts you want :-)).
This story, and the companion piece covering Buffy's activities at the same time seem to have both missed the 'review boat' - no idea why though I'm assuming it fit into the series in a way that no one felt compelled to say anything about it. But I know it is being read since I don't get any questions of the 'How did Ginny end up in Cleveland?' sort from readers of later stories.
