Author's Response: Thank you, MWG! It did take me a while to think of those! GhV
This is a fabuluous story! Your characterization is superb, although it was difficult at times to keep up with the switching viewpoints and timelines.
Author's Response: Dear Linnetjo, Thank you for taking the trouble to review. Most readers had trouble with the timeline - either you have to pay very close attention to the chapter headings, or else rearrange your reading to read them out of order. But I am so glad you found it worthwhile to persevere. A sequel is on the way. Regards, GhV
this is so good, i love the way u went from past to present, it was very nicely done, and i cannot wait for the next chapters so please do continue, contact me if u want at firstname.lastname@example.org or just wen u have finished your next chapter if u would be so kind, keep up the good work
Author's Response: Dear Nefertari, I am so glad you like my story! I have finished it, so it will be posted as soon as the Admins can clear it. In fact I have finished two sequels as well, and I am currently working on the fourth section. Thanks for your input, GhV
Great tie-in with what happened and realistic human responses.
Author's Response: Dear Sarah, Thanks for reviewing. I find The Prank very unpleasant, as it brings out the worst in so many people. I hope JKR will tell us more about it later. I'm glad you found it realistic despite my distaste. Regards, GhV
Fabulous detail and great suspense. Keep it up!
Author's Response: Dear Alex, Thanks for reviewing. This is the first time anyone has commented on the "suspense" - isn't it amazing what you can write into a story without realising what you're doing? Hope you keep reading, GhV
I keep meaning to come in and leave a reveiw, but I never make it as I get sneak peeks of the story as a beta. This chapter was wonderful in setting up the isolation Remus would feel, and the distance the others would give him when they think he might be the traitor. Knowing the truth makes this chapter even harder to read.
Overall, this has been a great way to depict the first war with Voldemort. I like the use of the Ariadne to give us the perspective of a student and through her the perspective of the average witch or wizard that is not in the Order. I look forward to seeing how the rest of it is depicted.
Author's Response: Dear phoenix, thanks for taking the trouble to boost the review count, despite having already commented at length on the story. It's not good that Remus was suspected, but that's just a taste of how bad it was for Sirius when he was finally blamed. Unfortunately, that's a theme that I won't be able to work into this story, which ends in 1982. And, yes, we meet plenty of "average" people through Ariadne ... some more average than others. Thanks for your support, GhV
