ooooh oddest dang pairings i've ever read, but i'm hooked! i love that hermione is with krum!!!! i completely ship them. but neville and padma? i'm glad you gave neville a bit of happiness there, very cool.
suggestion: write more! you're intro (chapter 1) was a bit awkward though. but once i started into chap 2, it was all good. i like that ron and malfoy still have goes at each other.
keep it up!

Noo!! I despise cliffhangers. Just don't take years, 'cause it's an awesome story, and I'll strangle someone if it doesn't get finished. :D I'm still not sure about Ginny being that awful, and I'm hoping Ginny isn't the kidnapper. But the story still rocks.

I love the Viktor/Hermione interactions. The Harry/Susan interactions are good--Patrick was right when he said they seem to go together like bacon and eggs, peanut butter and jelly perhaps. Interesting dynamic with Ron and Draco, too. I just may check out your next chapter!

Well Seren, I'm not too much of a fan of Viktor/Hermione, but you're excellent at dialogue- I'd drag out examples, but I'd say that'd be a waste of time. You wrote it, and you should know what I'm telling you. You also seem to design most of your stories- not just this one- to where the stories fit your characters, and not designing your characters for the stories. I absolutely love it when that comes across.

I especially liked the Harry and Susan scene; they bounce off each other's character and go like bacon 'n eggs. Because they simply were designed that way. Excellent! I have to say, I enjoyed the Harry/Susan much more than anything else, especially going on with life normally. Quite an interesting tactic!

To end this short review, I enjoyed it. Simply put.

Chapter: Prologue

I have to admit, I only opened up this fic and decided to give it a go because a) youíre writing is generally of a high standard, and I needed something to cheer me up, and b) there was mention of Ron/Draco. Of course, I did begin reading this in the middle of maths class, so perhaps the inherent boredom of precalc comes into it as well. At any rate, I opened it, and I have to say I am glad I did, whatever the reason.

I laughed out loud at your paragraph about how Harry was a special boy. And I greatly appreciate the humour, because itís said in the way you would report something to someone who didnít know who Harry Potter wasÖand I just really like it, for some reason. *shrugs* I also rather like With one swish of a pink umbrella and a psychologically scarred cousin behind him, young Harry Potter started off on the adventure of a lifetime., because it just about sums up how Harry did get to Hogwarts. And, of course, itís hilarious.

Goodness, the list of things they learned at Hogwarts is quite a laugh. I can see Ron starting it out as a joke, and Harry suddenly deciding that itís actually very serious business and true. Not sure if that was what you were thinking, but the idea of Harry, Ron, and Hermione coming up with that list is almost as funny as the list itself. Quite a good talent you have there, making what you havenít actually said, but merely implied, funny! ^__^

Och, this is turning into a gushing review. Iím sorry, but I really do like it. Itís funny, well written, and told in a semi-serious tone as opposed to a lot of the humour fictions out there that make the writer sound like he or she is on crack. All in all, a wonderful introduction to which Iím sure will be a hilarious story!

I made no complaints. I am ashamed of myself. Funnily enough, whenever I review anything of yours I donít complain. *ponders this thought*

Dun dun dun! Very evil cliffhanger there. It calls for evil cliffhanger music. I like how you set up everyone's life so believably.

Chapter: Prologue

Very snappy opener. You wanted it to bring people up to speed quickly and you achieved exactly that. As a prologue it ticks all the boxes. We now know just what we need to know and can launch straight into the story. I loved the humour, very dry, just how I like it. And the condensed version of Harry's life at Hogwart's is a mini masterpiece. I also liked the seven rules he learned, my favourite being the first! Definately something fishy going on.

I found only one quibble with the flow and that was in this sentence...

fire-haired boy named Ron, who, despite being rather thick at times and was in occasional need of anger management, was generally kind and loyal,

I would take out the first was because it's making the sentence scan badly.

Enjoyed the punchiness of the prologue and am looking forwarding to seeing Ron and Draco coping with their orphans and generally carping at each other. I also liked the way you introduced the idea of darkness post-Voldemort, without overplaying it; Ron's drinking and Hermione's wound were understated but there.

So, bring on the princess...
