|Welcome back, Luv! Your sense of humor was sorely missed by this member of the Angst Brigade. Only you could take a life and death struggle with a Death Eater and make it funny. A Howler from her mother, that sounds like something my mother would do. I'm sure there will be fallout from this. Mayhem and fingersnacks -- definately a job for the Wheasley twins. |
Author's Response: Lol. How did I manage to pick up the Angst Brigade? (Great name, btw). Hmm... what kind of fallout are you thinking of? More soon, I promise.

|'But you got better?' Was that an intentional reference to the witch scene in Holy Grail? Whether or not, I laughed. Of course, I laughed all the way through the chapter, as usual. This chapter, in particular, played out so much like a movie that I could just see it: the dropping monocle, the Howler going off in the middle of a battle. It's too bad no one will ever film a fan-fic.
Thanks for the plug for AMA! And I'm very glad you're back. Reading this story helps keep me from sinking too far into the gloom and doom. I think my readers have noticed the effect of your absence!
Author's Response: Excellent catch, Ms. Brown! Five points to (insert name of your house here).
Surprisingly enough my next chapter might be more of a black-humor type. (Most of it waas plotted and written during the grim days earlier this month.) It'll be interesting to see what people make of it. I'm half-tempted to send it over to you to hear your response to it before I put it out for general consumption. Hmmm...

|What a refreshing combination: an Auror fight interspersed with a mother scolding-by-Howler! I've never seen anything like it before :-).
I liked this - but you will give us more Snape next chapter, won't you? ;-P|
Author's Response: LOTS of Snape next chapter. Sometimes several at the same time. I'll leave you to figure that one out. ;)

|Another great chapter, it was very amusing to read about everyone's reaction about Snape marrying Tonks. and Avery making that remark to Tonks while fighting was priceless.|
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed, Greyfalcon! I thought that remark was a little canned, but I just couldn't resist...

|Hooray, an update! You made my morning. I knew that owl wasn't coming back owl-shaped. Looking forward to Snape's plans for the libations and Gred & Forge's finger snacks!|
Author's Response: Why thankya! Any chance I could could convince you to change your name to "Parrotbait?" How did you come up with that name, anway? It's really great.

|Ooooh... I love it... It gives me tingles all over. XD|
Author's Response: No, I think the tingles might be from hyperventilation... Remember to keep breathing at a regular pace, please!

|This is a truely funny chapter, between the blue parrot/owl and the duel with Avery, I was rolling onn the floor laughing. I'm squeamish about SS/HG but I love SS/OC. I was sqeamish aboout SS/Student stories but Verity as changed my mind about that.|
Author's Response: And the award for first Occlumency response goes to Ms. Trickie Woo! Glad you like the chapter. That was about my tenth rewrite before I felt it was good enough to send out.
I was afraid of SS/HG for a while there, too. Some authors have made it work, however. Lately I've been getting a lot of people telling me that they were afraid of SS/NT, but in my own way I'm attempting to make that pairing seem more natural. At this point, I'll settle for so unnatural it's funny, though...
