Chapter: The Naiad Pond

Interesting. Well-written--and I plan to read more. We don't often hear about American magical folk. I'm left wondering about the bracelet--did it have some magical properties? Any reading I've done about American witches and wizards has them doing wandless magic so I wonder if this will be the same. Are Alex's parents muggles? I can't wait to find out:D Great chapter.

Chapter: The Registrar's Office

I was right! I actually suspected Journey throughout the novel, however, i was 100% sure. I first suspected him back in the chapter with the invisible bridge when Charlie acted strangely, causing her to go last crossing the bridge. Journey was the one that got Charlie back in the cage but Alex said he did it by not looking at the bird, but at a point by the bird.

anyways, great chapter. I'm now going to finsh!

Chapter: The Raven

OK, so I guess I am merely technologically challenged, but I cannot seem to locate the Black Lake thread to nominate this fic to be read on Audiofiction. If someone else would do so, that would be great.... :)

Author's Response: Thanks for thinking of nominating my story! The nomination thread is here. I believe you have to be registered and Sorted in the forum in order to see it, but I could be wrong.

Chapter: The Raven

Brilliant! After I read Hogwarts Houses Divided I just had to read more of your writing and I loved this one. The American wizarding society you created is as complex as British wizarding society, and I love how different America and Charmbridge are from England and Hogwarts. Another thing I really liked here is how not everything's black and white--I get the feeling these "Dark" wizards aren't nearly as black as they're painted.
And the characters are very interesting; Alex's exploits made me want to shake her, but she is a very lovable character for all her faults. And I love her friends--especially Constance and Forbearance.
And by the way, one thing I had to add: the name Goblin Market made me laugh...very clever reference there.

Great story, I liked that you created a lot of new and interesting characters, but still are in the HP world.

Chapter: The Raven

I'm so looking forward to starting Alexandra's next school year. I am first and foremost a reader. I always want more to every book I read. I hope at some point you will also be able to add to "Hogwars Houses Divided". Thank you for all the hard work you put into your stories that makes me, and I hope everyone, want to read on, and on, and on.

Chapter: Governor-General Hucksteen

I do believe I'm going to like this girl. Not being able to figure out in the beginning where her attitude was coming from and why, I couldn't make up my mind. You have done such a tremendous job of developing your plot, characters and the way the story flows. As with Teddy Lupin's story, I'd like to see this as a seven year school story and be published for everyone to read, not just those who have found MNFF.

Chapter: Broken Circle

This is such an excellent story. I'm certainly hoping we will get to know some of Abraham Thorn's history in future books.

I do believe I was correct about the fairy tales and I was wondering who was going to end up the villian, but must admit I didn't think it was Mr Journey. I thought he might be the one who helped her on her journey to find her father.

Does Ms Grimm perhaps tell fairy tales to cover up the truth?

Chapter: The Registrar's Scroll

I'm sure I don't agree with Ms Grimm's assessment, arguments or conclusions as to what has been happening to and around Alex. There's something decidedly fishy about that woman. There seems to be a correlation between the way you name some characters and the way JKR named some of hers. I like it.

Chapter: Remedial Magic

Very well detailed and thought out. I have wondered what an American magic school would look like since we have no castles. I guess I was imagining something like a monastery, but this is definitely more interesting.
