Ive read all your stories on this site. Theyre wonderful. Always when Ive given up on fanfiction I find something just perfect that gets me started again. These were exactly that. Now Ill have to see if youve written something elsewhere or if you recommend something. Thank you for your writings, and kepp writing. You have a talent which I seldom see in the fanfic world.

I'd never be able to think of pumpkins again, seriously.

This made my day, thank you. :)

"it simply never occurs to him how out of character it would be for his mother to expend so many tears of pity on his being made, literally, to eat his vegetables. "

 

Ahh, and then the legume bit.  Learned some new facts there, actually!  Oh my, how sitcom-worthy this is!  I could never imagine one being able to create the "unspoken misunderstood understanding" in writing, but, by Jove, I think you've done it!        I abso-ruddy-lutely LOVE this series, and would pay by the millions (of of course) to have it continue!  Well done, Old Bean!

Thank you, thank you! As for the legumes, I think the interviewer may have been taking advantage of Anthony's pedantic Ravenclaw reflexes and winding him up a bit, what do you think? :-)

Nice little add-on to your finished series. I greatly enjoyed this and am a little jealous of your ability to come up with genius Weasley exploits. I certainly am not that creative! Very funny.

Oh, this is awesome. Please, please -- are we getting more Anthony interviews? This is awesome, even the argument about the fruit vs. vegetable.

Great job with this, and the Flourish and Blotts Hour. They're both funny and well written. However, they're also both making me insanely curious about the whole siege. It sounds like you've got the outlines for a great story. Are we actually going to get to read it? Please?

Thanks very much! Yes, there's a seventh-year story awaiting, after we've all had time to digest HBP. Glad you enjoyed these pieces!

Technically, are they vegetables? Arent they legumes?
-I loved how they'd get sidetracked.

Ron isnt at all certain that Mollys going to be held back by that sort of niggling literalism
-Made me laugh.  I can just see Molly reading through the plagues, trying to determine which would be most appropriate.

this Manischewitz of pumpkins
-I can feel my teeth rotting just thinking about it.  Nice touch.

Hope you continue on with these F&B interviews.

Thanks very much! The 'interview' was originally an epilogue to a standard third-person fic, but it's a fun format and the response has been so generous I do think I'll play with it some more.

Umm, this felt too much like a recycling of the humor in the last chapter of the Transcript story. The set-up was the same - miscommunication between Molly and Ron. Except the first story was short, to the point and, well, first. :-) And this one felt contrived all along, especially Anthony's talk of probability theory at the end. Honestly, weighing two bad situations against each other is too much of an everyday occurence to warrant such pompous language. Anthony may be a bit of a show-off, but you have to know when to show off, or else you appear stupid. And you had us convinced that on the contrary, he's smart.

I don't know whether my review would still be negative, had I been unaware of your other story. But in this context, I think this story is forced and over-written. I also think that you have exceptional potential (as illustrated by the first story), and just need to come up with some fresh ideas.

Fair points, thanks for the feedback!  I do see what you're saying about Anthony.  Please think of this story, if you will, as taking place in an alternate universe where schtick is the only law, while the 'real' Anthony resides in the first story.
