Cool! Please deconstruct over-done, childish, 2-D, clownlike movie "Bellatrix" next!  

Author's Response: Aw man, Bellatrix is not on my list right now... but I'll give it some thought. I see what you mean though. I'm thinking of the look she has after Voldemort tells her she can't kill Harry in DH. Hmmmm. ;) Thanks for reading!

Brilliant. Ron's sheepish admission about "saving it for Seven" made me laugh out loud. Congratulations on the QSQ!

Author's Response: Aw, thanks so much! I still kind of can't believe it. :) I'm thrilled you laughed out loud at this--yay!

Brilliant! This is hilarious-I can't stop smiling while reading it. I think you've done the characterization well. And it's a wonderful way to point out the differences between the books & movies with humor and without sounding overdone or whiny. Great job!

Author's Response: IThanks a lot. Though I must admit I've done my share of whining on the matter as well. More chapters coming eventually. Thanks for taking the time to review. :)

I loved this one :P Chapter 3, Hermione version. Babe Magnet's funny too. This is an interesting perspective :D I wonder how the Director is still alive, Voldy would have avada kedavra-d him a long time ago for being so horrible :P

Author's Response: Haha... I do have respect for Yates, especially after DH. But that will not stop me tearing into him for a few more chapters... mwahahahaha! :) Thanks for the review!

This one halarious!

I like the part where Hermione is mad at Ron and the Director and then she randomly points to some guy and says: And that man too. I just broke down into laughter when I read it!

I also liked the part where they hear the loud bangs coming from Hermiones dressing room and she's throwing stuff around!

Author's Response: Knowing it made you laugh out loud is the best! Thanks so much for the review--I really appreciate it!

So when's the next chapter coming out?? How many will there be altogether??

Luvv, DaMaggs

Author's Response: Hmmm... there will be two more from HBP and I don't know how many from DH. I think DH was the most well done of them all, but there's still a bit there for me to play with. Hehe. Glad you like it!

"Why the bloody hell am I wearing this thing to breakfast?"

Ron! You are so right! Yet another reason movie 6 was a failure. I. LOVE. THIS. STORY.

Luvv, DaMaggs

Author's Response: Yay, I'm glad you're enjoying it!

Chapter: Jazz Hands

This. Is. Hysterical!! Please please please write more of these! It's a super-original idea and the characters are brilliantly done, some humour fics really screw up the characters but you kept them canon (of course tip-toeing around the fact that 50% of them are dead...)
Please write a Remus/Tonks one in HBP, the fact that they left all that out just made me SO mad, I would LOVE to see that made fun of! Maybe Tonks being grouchy about her horrendous mullet hairdo and gothic-ballerina-thing outfit... you know. Either that or Voldemort and Harry running around the castle and jumping off the side of the cliff thing, that was just painful to watch! The other scenes you selected I heartily approve of, you pretty much grabbed three of the ones that bugged me the most and made them hysterically funny!
Bravo, bravo, great job! Encore!

Author's Response: I'm sortring through my stats tonight, and cannot believe I somehow missed responding to this lovely review! Please forgive me -- I'm usually better about that. Thanks so much for your comments. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I've had so much fun sorting through everyone's requests to cover their pet peeves. Not sure if you've seen chapter four yet, but I did tackle a few more Remus/Tonks issued in that one... should have mentioned her clothes, though! Oh well, there are a couple more chapters to come, so I may toss it in. :)

Thanks again for the lovely review. So sorry it took me so long to get around to responding! :)

Lori. Put down everything else you are doing and write another chapter of this right now. As one of the judges for Humour, I think I have the right to say that THIS. IS. AMAZING. And maybe go and gush about how awesome it is everywhere. And it has been almost a YEAR since you updated. That is too long.
Hehe.

Author's Response: LOL! Your review has made my morning. Yay--thank you so much, and that much MORE since you were on the judging panel. I give you my word that I have been working on the next chapter of this, so it truly shouldn't be too much longer. I was thrilled to see this story had won, so thank you again SO much. I'm so glad you all enjoyed it. We all need a way to work through our movie frustrations, don't we? ;)

I love the idea for this story! It's really funny and all the characters seem canon, this seems like what would happen if they were forced to play themselves to the movie scripts. Good stuff!

Author's Response: I'm glad you thought it was funny and that the characters seemed right. Thanks for the review!

Chapter: Saving It for Seven

Just have a go on the scene Snape *shiver* hugging *shake* Lily. If you don't, I will. That would be hilarious. I could not believe that scene my self. I almost cried for him and all my desire to cry dissipated at the moment I see that scene - I want to laugh!

Author's Response: I would LOVE to include that. But I'll have to see... the trickiest bit in this fic is tip-toe-ing around the fact that some of these people should be dead while I have them acting in films. :O That will be an issue in DH even more, particularly with regard to Snape. But I do agree that it was insane to have him in their house--what a violation! Thanks for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you liked this.

Chapter: Saving It for Seven

I've just read the whole thing, and think it's brilliant! Although I can't help but wonder why you've decided to skip the earlier films? I'm sure Hermione would have something to say about her gorgeous pink dress in GoF... ;)

Author's Response: Well, the original prompt was for a scene in OOTP, and after I wrote it, HBP was out and I was raging about this and that... so I just started where I was. I'm glad I didn't go any further, though, as I would be writing this until the day I die. I've got two more scenes for HBP as it is, before I can move on to DH. Whew! But I do include references to the past... in fact, a ref to GOF is coming in the next chapter. Thanks so much for the review--I'm glad you enjoyed the story!

Chapter: Jazz Hands

I keep thinking about this because it's a bone of contention with a lot of people. Have you thought of doing the characters POV of when the actors were cast? I think there's some material to work with there. Anywho, looking forward to your take on DH. You gotta do the misplaced kiss and Voldy getting blown into confetti. Oy!

Author's Response: Hmmm... I think that would be tricky, because in my little version of things here... there are no actors. Does that make sense? It's only the book characters having to relive this for film. And honestly, it only works if you don't think about it too hard. ;) DH is ripe with inspiration, but I must finish two more chapters regarding HBP first. Hopefully before too long, I will be able to get back to this. Thanks again for reading and taking the time to review. I appreciate it.
