Review of chapter "Apples and Worms" from AllenPitt
Review:
Any chance that Trelawney is related to Drusilla, however distantly? It would make a lot of sense in a weird sort of way... I'm now trying to picture Dru as a guest lecturer...
One more incident and I will expect a Draco/Luna romance...
I'm really curious now on what anti-Dementor spell a certain portrait is trying to teach Luna. Trying to think if there's anything comparable to a Dementor in the Buffy-verse. Only thing I can think of is that thing Connor fought (soul-sucker) once.
Comments from author:
It's possible they are related, of course. But by quite a few degrees seperation then. Dru as a guest lecturer would play with her dollies and snack on the pupils.

Just one? Heh. Well, you may hope for one, certainly. As for the spell, actually there are three, and we will get to them. As soon as Luna thinks she knows enough Feline.

Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Apples and Worms" from war
Review:
Snape doesn't take affection very well does he? With Luna being nice to Draco I wonder how that will affect his future choices in regards to the Death Eaters?

Good story looking forward to your next chapter.
Comments from author:
Snape can't afford to take certain affection well. And he has difficulty with it as well. Draco will be changed, even if only from sheer bewilderment.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Apples and Worms" from WolfWriter
Review:
I'm no purist; I love this little ditty.

Holy CRAP! Sybil put out her own eyes so she wouldn't have visions! That's.......really disturbing, and makes an even more disturbing amount of sense as to why she drinks so much. The poor thing.

Glad they got the Frunnelworm out of Malfoy. How long has he had it?
Comments from author:
Thank you, I actually expect very few purists read fanfic. ;-) I wanted to show how true Visions might affect a person. I must admit I feel very sorry for her, and I did it to her.

Malfoy had the Frunnelworm since the first Care lesson, so quite a bit. But it was caught soon enough that it left no permanent damage.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Mother to the power of two" from etienneofthewestwind
Review:
To CrystalBlaze:

In the Cannon Christmas you referred to, the twins dragged Percy away from *opening the rest of his Christmas presents*, not studying, to have breakfast. True, he didn't want to wear the jumper, but Ron wasn't thrilled with his either. Percy, in cannon, was the one who noticed *something* was wrong with Ginny in CoS and dragged her to the hospital wing for pepper-up. He also raced into the lake in GoF to make sure Ron hadn't been hurt in the second task, dignity of his substitute judging be damned. Even the letter he wrote Ron in OotP was an attempt to help, if rooted in mistaken beliefs.

You made an interesting point about the Weasleys having obsessive traits, and thinking on it, you are right. Personally, I always thought their shared flaw was stubbornness. This includes Molly Weasley. She may love her children, but has been at times overbearing and unreasonable in her desire to see as many of her children follow their father into the Ministry. And if you read the end of GoF carefully, you'll see that Percy's opinions on why Arthur's Ministry career has been lackluster come straight from her. Well, except for the part where Percy thought Arthur should cap his enthusiasm in front of Fudge and his ilk so he could rise to a position where he could do more good.

Whatever happened off-page that summer, both sides of the Weasley factions were nasty to each other. And while Percy did apologize for being wrong about Harry and Dumbledore, I don't recall anyone apologizing for being wrong about Percy's promotion. Granted, not speaking to his family for years while keeping the "spy position", is a shoot his own foot method of proving his father wrong about the position, even though it worked.

Well obsession and stubbornness can be a bad combo.

EDIT: Percy's method of proving Fudge did not just want a spy: that is it worked for the reader. With a family tending toward monomania and stubbornness, maybe it did squat for the Weasleys...
Comments from author:
Percy loves his family, trust me on this, loves them very much. And like many Weasley's he could do without the sweater, yes. ;-) 'The Percy problem' will be dealt with quite extensively, actually.

Thanks for reviewing and your opinions.

Review of chapter "Mother to the power of two" from etienneofthewestwind
Review:
WTF is up with Percy here? Yes, he's pompous at this stage, but in the books he's been shown to care for his family, and was in fact closest to Molly. His break with the family only came after he was told he was incompetent and so stupid he would spy on his family and not even know it.

EDIT: That's an interesting response. I guess I'll wait and see what your take on Percy is.
Comments from author:
Percy is being Percy, but not quite the Percy we know, but also not quite the Percy you think either. Bear with me.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Mother to the power of two" from Eureka
Review:
LOL Vid! Glad to see that Molly and Jean were able to get Dumbles to back off and down! Twas very funny to see that Molly knows how to fly and is better than expected. Also very happy that Xeno got there for Luna.
Comments from author:
Molly Weasley is formidable when protecting her children. It made no sense to me that would only occur in combat, at the Battle of Hogwarts. I never imagined Arthur to be much of a broom flyer, but quite a few of their children were more than accomplished, hence Molly the Chaser.

Xeno would travel from and to the ends of the Earth for Luna.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Mother to the power of two" from LordSchmodder
Review:
So, Molly's actually a very decent broom-pilot? Very nice idea.
Thanks for sharing!
Comments from author:
Yup, I liked the notion that Molly is the one they inherited their broomskills from.

Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Mother to the power of two" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
In answer to etienne;

Percy has always tried to be dedicated to his studies and duties over all else. I recall the Twins had to drag him off and force the Weasely jumper onto him Christmas break in canon. Basically, he only got NASTY about it when his family told him he was going to be used by the Ministry.

The bottom line is that Weasely men are, to a man, obsessive on their passions beyond the point of reason. Arthur's life in the Office of Improper Use of Muggle Items, Percy's career fixation and feelings of disgrace at the superficial shabbiness of his family, Bill and Charlie's individual obsessions with their careers (Charlie Weasely is as obsessed with dragons as Hagrid, and that takes WORK), the Twins' pranking madness, Ginny's lock onto the BWL to the point it took the Chamber fiasco to make her start seeing Harry as Harry, and even Ron's fanaticism towards chess and the Cannons (another underdog as he feels himself to be), it all fits.
Comments from author:
Hmmm, now you mention it, all Weasley's do seem to suffer slightly from some sort of monomania. Must be all the inbreeding.

Thanks for reviewing.

Review:
Nicely done. Penelope's parting shot was a lovely way to end things.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Penelope rather likes Molly. And she is the first girl any Weasley boy has brought home...

Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Mother to the power of two" from Wormbait
Review:
Ahh Percy, it doesn't matter what's going on around him, he can still be relied on to be a total prat.

Really enjoying seeing Albus being bullied by all the women-folk, you'd think by his age he'd know better. :)

Well done and thanks for sharing, I look forward to more.
Comments from author:
Percy does have appearances against him, yes. Dumbledore hasn't met a woman quite like Molly in long, long time.

Thanks, and thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Mother to the power of two" from EllandrahSylver
Review:
*snerk* Miss Penelope has her work cut out for her if she thinks she's going to effectively manage to remove Percy's swollen head from his arse. Best of luck to her.


The rest is wonderful. I do think it's always fun to see Dumbledore taken down a peg or two, and you know, I can just see Molly being the reason five of her children actually played on the Gryffindor Quidditch team... looking after her absent-minded husband, and shopping for seven children. *laughs*

That the kids are actually getting proper nurturing from their parents after being traumatised by the Dementors is also very good to see.

Looking forward to whatever you come up with next.
Comments from author:
Ah, but if not she, who else?

I always thought Molly was a bit too one dimensional, but I have that problem with a lot of JKR's characters.

The fact they didn't in canon was the hardly first thing that put me off. Any sane parent would have removed their children after the incident with the Troll in the bathroom...

Thanks for reviewing.

Review:
Poor clueless, pompous, putzy Percy.

He needs a good kick in the tush from his mother, cuz let's face it, Arthur doesn't have what it takes.
Comments from author:
Yes, Percy. Heir to the Duchy of Northumberland...

We shall see, won't we?

Thanks for reviewing.
