Chapter: A Birthday Joke

This was amazing. :) (I started laughing so hard my sister asked me if I had asthma) Both Harry and Hermione were very well done and in character. I feel like if you didn't know this was about them, you could still figure it out by reading their responses to each other. The fact that there was only dialogue was really what made the story so good, because all of the information you got about the surroundings, etc. was directly from the characters. The part about Kreacher was great, and you tied up the end very nicely. The entire thing was just very, very hilarious. :) ~Olivia!

Author's Response: Thanks so much :) I'm glad people are still reading this fic and enjoying it!

Julia! Good job on this, writing a story with only dialogue must be hard..! I'm glad you chose Harry and Hermione, they are my absolute favourite pair in dialogue (if Ron's involved, he always irritates me...) They are so on the same level with each other, which makes their bickering quick and witty. It was very fun to read :)
I am quite sure there's a row to much, though, that Harry and Hermione change place in dialogue :O Right around “But does he suspect anything?” “No, Harry. This is Ron we’re talking about…” “Right.” If you continue reading you'll notice the rows don't match up... :(
Anyway, good job! You made me laugh :)


Author's Response: Oh Jen/Xen! You're right, there was change but I have fixed it now by merging the two sentences together. I absolutely adore conversations between Harry and Hermione. I'm a Harmony shipper but even in canon compliant situations like this they're just so fun to work with. Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad it made you laugh! I had a lot of giggle-fits writing it. Julia/Xulia XD

Was the challenge to write only dialogue? I enjoyed the banter (and the thought of Viktor Krum panties), but I missed all the things a scene usually has: description, thoughts, and action.

It's just a suggestion, but if you changed "Sorry," to "Sorry, Harry" it would cue the reader and he or she wouldn't have to skim down to paragraph eight to discover who Hermione is having the conversation with (like I did).

Author's Response: Yeah, the challenge was to write a dialogue-only fic which was quite hard. It's strange having to incorporate setting etc. into dialogue. I'm glad you enjoyed the banter :) I guess the reason I did not let on who Hermione was talking to right away is because it could either be Ron or Harry but oh well. Thanks for the review and your suggestions!

Very clever idea. I can picture these two in that shed plotting Ron's surprise very clearly. I especially liked the parts where they were reminiscing over life at Hogwarts and I was giggling over Hermione being 'forced' into McLaggans arms - hee hee.

I do think there were one or two places where Hermione's characterisation slipped. For instance, I don't think she'd use the word 'bloke' - it's a bit too slangy for Hermione (but then I've always seen her as being rather posh)

I love the last line - Victor Krum embossed panties indeed. Hermione, what are you thinking?!

Well done. ~Carole~

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I love writing Harry/Hermione interactions, this was inspired by the conversation in HBP when Harry and Hermione are outside the Great Hall having a wee argument/banter about the fact Harry pretended to spike Ron's drink with Felix and Hermione confunded McLaggen during Quidditch try-outs. I can see what you mean about Hermione, though, not saying 'bloke' and that you picture her as posh. I always pictured her as down-to-earth but bookish rather than posh, but that's the beauty of Jo's world and her characters, we each have our own slightly different view of them. As for the last line, I could not resist putting that in. My own cheeky indulgence :) But thanks for reviewing, I'm glad I amused you.

OMG soooo funny! The characters interacted really well together, and that last line, priceless!

Author's Response: I'm glad you found it funny! I didn't even intend on writing this, I just sat down and the idea came to me in some strange epiphany! Thanks for the review :)
