I've spent the past day reading this whole story. I have to admit that I was a bit sceptical at first, however your portrayals of Hermione and Dumbledore are so incredible. Once I started, I couldn't stop. You have a way with words. I was frustrated in the middle when Albus wouldn't tell anyone what actually happened with the American Ambassador. I have ideas, but I'm sure that will come up later. As well as the mysterious Monsieur le Conte... after the discussion with Hermione and Ginny as well as the one between Albus and Alastor, I am curious about him as well. I am certainly going to keep up with this story. Keep up the great work!

Author's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I'm really happy you like the story - and yes, I know, the pairing looks a bit "strange" on the first sight. That was probably what have make me go into it: It's difficult to write and therefore a challenge. ;-)
I hope you'll like how the story with my mysterious French man will develop. ;-)

Wow, excellent chapter. You've moved the plot along brilliantly. I'm not sure if this is appropriate or not to do in a review for you, but I wanted to point out two places where you missed a letter. Near the beginning, you have forbad. There should be an e at the end. Also, Hermione has a scape on her leg. Missing an r there. And one other little thing, you say "on his legs" and I think you're meaning to say "to his feet." I suspect the litteral German translation is what you're writing. Other than that, this chapter is beautiful. I'm as curious as Hermione about Yves! On to the next chapter.

Author's Response: It's certainly appropriate to point out little mistakes in a review - it helps me to improve my stories and therefore it's greatly appreciated. Thanks for it!
And yes, sometimes I "think" in German and translate certain idioms in English. It's a bad habit and I'm working on it.

Ack! What a cliffhanger! Just what was Albus doing? Whose long blond hair was that on his robes? You must get the next chapter up quickly or else I'll burst from curiosity! Excellent job again, m'dear.

Author's Response: Thanks for your review! The next chapter is already on its way - my beta-reader is almost through with it and so I think it will be up next week.

Ooooooh. You know, I had a thought that is who Yves might be. This chapter was so enthralling. It kept me reading and reading. I had to hear the whole story, which you finally and thankfully provided. :) It's nice to know everything. I hope Hermione will forgive Albus for being a stubborn Slytherin. I do so love this story!

I really enjoyed reading this and certainly can't wait for more chapters. Your portrayal of Neville is really great. You show his reluctance, his fears, that he really is good at something. Your descriptions are really well written. It reads much how I would guess Neville would think. Excellent job.

retired featured story Neville Longbottom goes Christmas shopping to find just the right gift for someone very special.

Oh my gosh... that was just beautiful. It seems you and I share a common element when writing Neville. I hopefully will have my stories up here soon. This story is so wonderful. You capture Neville's sadness, yet constant yearning for his parents, brilliantly. Your use of descriptions are fantastic. I love the descriptions of the blanket for Frank, and then the ones of the music box. I could see everything. I love Neville and I adore this story. Wonderful, brilliant, beautiful job!

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm happy that you enjoyed the piece. Neville is one of my favorite characters. :)

I wondered if it made me conceited to imagine that it may have been my death he was planning on avenging…and what James would say if he knew that I wondered about such things at all.

I must say that this is beautiful. I love the fact that you wrote it from Lily's point of view. It's more personal that way, especially with the subject. The way you describe things that have happened from Lily's perspective feels right. It reads exactly how I would expect Lily to react. Lovely.

I must admit that I burst out laughing as I read this. I'm talking out loud, where everyone could hear. Ah, this is HILARIOUS! It's so... incredibly silly that it's wonderful. I have this huge grin on my face now. I will never think of those items in the same way ever again. *runs off laughing maniacally*

Bloody brilliant, if I do say so. You make it so believable that it could happen. I must admit that I was a bit wary at first, but their conversation convinced me that it was the right thing. Absolutely stunning job.

This is a very different approach to "the end". Admittedly it's a bit disjointed, but you work it well. You include everyone, which is nice. And it's well written. Nice job.

Author's Response: Thank you!

I still love this story so incredibly much. I'm glad I posted the Greg story. :) This story has everything. You have Luna's aloofness and Greg's... well, Greg-ness. *LOL* This story is brilliant and I really, really love it.

Author's Response: Thanks, Vickie! I'm glad it hasn't lost it's appeal, lol... =)

OMG, that is HILARIOUS! I just love it. I'm still laughing. I mean, really, what self-respecting Gryffindor WOULD be seen in Hufflepuff colours? Brilliant. I love silly little one-shots like this. Excellent job!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review!! We absolutely loved coming up with that drabble and are happy that someone else shares our sense of humour! Cheers

Oh my... what a lovely, yet short chapter. So nice to come here and actually see a new chapter to something I love. I'm not sure I like the new move. Too much going on at once here. I'm afraid I'm going to miss the story. :( I'll keep checking, though.

I love the interactions between the characters. Everyone is just perfect. I like how you're adding the other story in. It's going to be really interesting!

Good luck with the job search. I hope you find something for your field.
