I love it!

|OMG, I laughed myself silly at this chapter. Great use of the twins, I don't think they're exploited nearly enough. If I tried to tell you my favorite parts I'd be reciting almost your whole chapter back to you. Brilliant work!|
Author's Response: Definately keeping you!

|I take it that you are another 'Bridget Jones' fan judging by your reference to a Tarts & Vicars party. I see Tonks, of course, as Bridget, Snape as Bridget's dad, and Percy as Bernard, in full Papal regalia.
I would bet that Snape is the only human being who can pointedly ignore some as well as a cat can.|
Author's Response: Honestly, I hadn't put that much thought into it, but I'm glad that it caught your imagination. As for 'Bridget Jones,' I have to confess that I've only seen the movie.

|The great difference between this parody and the originals I have painfully stumbled across is that *this* is infinitely better-written and infinitely more enjoyable. Marvellous how you keep the characters IC. You Tonks is masterful, and Snape... Ah well, he's Snape. ;-)|
Author's Response: Why thankya! I try my best to keep the motley crew in character and make sure it's a fun ride. Glad you're enjoying it.

|great! that ending was so Snape-like:) only wish the chapters were longer, I enjoy your story veeery much...thank you:)|
Author's Response: I'm glad you like the story. I suppose I could make the chapters longer, but then the wait would be longer as well. There's also the small problem that I naturally tend to write 2-2.5k word chapters, and pretty much always have. How about I try to update as often as possible? It evens out in the long run ;)

|Great snarky dialogue between Snape and Tonks! And I like how you structured this chapter, beginning with him taking away her wand as the revelation begins, and ending with him giving back her wand after she knows. I've always wondered, though, what spawned this whole "marriage challenge" thing that you are parodying so well. When I first started reading HP fanfic about a year ago, or so, that struck me as about the weirdest plot bunny out there.|
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! The Marriage Law Challenge, as far as I know, was spawned over at the WIKTT mailing list(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/whenikissedtheteacher/) . It soon became enormously popular, mostly because it provided a barely plausible excuse for throwing together two characters who otherwise wouldn't touch each other with a ten-foot pole while still piling on the angst.

|Snape shows great foresight in taking her wand. I can definitely understand why men would want to bind with their wives. It's a barbaric custom (unless I can find someone to bind to me, then being worshiped keeps them happy... I would make that sacrifice for them). Actually, the binding sounds more like the turn in the house elves of the Stepford Wife variety.|
Author's Response: Snape's instinct for self-preservation is impeccible--especially when faced with a trigger-happy auror. As for the binding, it's been mentioned in a few of the MLC fics I've stumbled across, and I did need an excuse for her not to marry Percy, didn't I?
Author's Response: Also--could you SEE Tonks as a Stepford wife--or Snape dealing with one? Oh my. I'll leave that plot bunny for you to adopt if you will.

|only the second time i've laughed till tears reading a fic.|
Author's Response: And this review made my day. How about a deal--I'll keep writing if you keep laughing?

|I am enjoying this story very much. I have always liked the idea of a Severus/ Tonks interaction, mainly because they are so much polar opposites-- in houses, in personality, and also the fact that she is an auror. Keep up the good work.|
Author's Response: Thank you :) You know, I don't even know how this premise came to me, but I do remember thinking that Snape and Tonks would be near-perfect foils, and that somehow it would lead to the ridiculously sublime, or sublimely ridiculous, I'm not sure which. But anyway, thanks very much for the review!
