Author's Response: Indeed. LOL! XD
Well, yeah I did stomach it. I'm glad you put the pairs in there, then I would never have read this! (And I'm pretty sure you wish I didn't but whatever =P). But it's really interesting and I'm sorry.
Author's Response: O.0 Sorry for? Glad you read it and stomached it! Brave, brave soul. I don't read pairings I don't care for at all.
Ron and Luna. Harry and Pansy. Draco and Hermione.
If you would excuse me for a moment. I'm afraid I have to die from joy and then resurrect myself (using my mad Slytherin cunning).
I'm going to bewitch the editor of the Daily Prophet to run this in tomorrow's issue. (Should I use the Imperius curse or Confund him?)

Author's Response: Thanks!
Hello, Ebil One! =D
This was definitely... an unusual fic on so many levels. It's humourous, and had me guessing till the very end. I had multiple scenarios in my head - Ron/Hermione, which I dismissed immediately from my mind, Ron/Draco, and Ron/OC, - none of which involved Luna Lovegood. I've never read a Ron/Luna fic before, actually. It's rare enough to see Luna in fanfiction, and rarer to see her in something even remotely resembling a romantic scenario! So yes, I was so surprised when the 'Secret Admirer' was revealed.
I liked the way the story developed, first with Draco's jealousy and misinterpretation, and then Ron's misunderstanding, and finally, Draco and Ron openly fighting it out over something which is a result of a gross misunderstanding as well. I only realised the reason it was a Humour genre fic then; that was humourous at a meta level and it appealed to me greatly.
The climax was definitely Harry/Pansy making its way into the picture. It amused me no end when I saw the brawl and its after effects, and I liked how you chose to simply end it there.
I must also commend you on the characterisation - Draco's ever dry commentry was replicated to a tee, although the brawl - in the Great Hall, too - seemed a little ridiculous and out of character. I mean, I see Draco as a kind of guy who would get into fights/take revenge when the teachers cannot see him doing the deed, not as one who would wear his heart on his sleeve and fight in the middle of the Great Hall.
Luna's letter was so Luna-esque, too. To-the-point and straight-forward. Oh, I love that girl for her nature. I did find the gift-giving a little strange, but 'strange' is Luna's middle name.
I did feel, however, that the story could have been made to flow a little better, instead of the shifting of scenes and point of views so abruptly. It jarred a little at points, and lacked that polishing which could have made this fic a really great one. I enjoyed it for the humour and the meta connection, though.
Author's Response: LOL Yes, Draco was a bit OOC, but I was definitely going for a crack!fic type of humor story. Thanks for the lovely review. I don't usually write stories with so many alternating POVs but I just went with it and this ws the result. Glad you enjoyed it. =]
BRILLIANT. Loved the end, I mised the bit about who Harry was pared with and I laughed so hard when I was don gaping at the end.
Author's Response: Glad you found it brilliant!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ... okay, you've possibly ruined the only AU I had in my mind (which was a Ron/Luna type thing) but this has just made me LOL rather a lot.
I loved the play on the blond/blonde and despite the fact that this was humour, they were all pretty much IC. You do have Draco down to a tee.
Merlin, that was good. Can we expect some more Pansy/Harry. I'm fairly sure that would be the kind of smut I'd enjoy ...
Thank you for making me laugh. ~Carole~
Author's Response: LOL -- I ruined your AU?! Not to be a show off or anything, but I specialize in Draco. XD I wrote some Harry/Pansy here: http://fanfiction.mugglenet.com/viewstory.php?sid=86236&warning=3
In case you're interested =] I'm glad I was able to make you laugh. My job here is fini.
If there is one fanfic writer who could convince me to move over to the non-canon side of the universe, it would be you, Ritta. From Green Tinted Hufflepuff, which, incidentally, was the first fic with an AU setting which I thoroughly enjoyed, to this, I might just be converted.
I think what I loved most about this was that you didn't really destroy the characters either for the sake of humour, or for the sake of non-canon romance. I feel that, too often, fanfic authors gloss over characterisation to make a pairing happen, or to make something funny. This fic proves that you don't have to sacrifice the characters for the sake of either theme.
Really, really enjoyed it. You had me giggling in office.
Author's Response: LOL -- I am flattered that I'd be able to convert you! XD Thanks for your lovely review! I love writing humor, but as you said, I don't think their character should be destroyed in the process, and I'm glad their personalities still are there =] If anything, I'm thrilled I was able to make you laugh. XD
No!! Don't take my Review the wrong way! I love the story, it's just the pairings are kinda ick ugh gag me. I already said that in the last review.
No offense :Wouldv'e been an awesome story:
See? But really, harry and pansy? that's the one i really wouldn't wanna picture...
you see, I like sticking with the main story, you know like, Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Neville/Luna, Draco/Pansy, you know, the ones tht make sense. but I really do love your story!!
Author's Response: I'm not a canon shipper and I rarely write canon ships. To be fair, I always state the pairings in the summary so no one has to read stories with pairings they cannot stomach.
That is one crazy, unusual story. Quite well-written, I might add.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
No offense (would've been an amazing story, if not for the pairings) but ICK, UGH, GAG ME!!!
Author's Response: It goes without saying, I suppose, that if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all, yes?
Weird! Mad! I love IT! Very Good! Fun read!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed my quirky story. =]
LOL! Unseemingly relationships, but quite fun to read about!! Well writen and very funny!!!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading =] I had fun writing these odd relationships. =]

Author's Response: XD I'm glad you found it cute. That's exactly what I was going for.
