Author's Response: Thank you very much. I had fun writing it. ~Carole~
It sucked. Thats really inappropriate! >:(
Author's Response: I don' know what you mean by 'inappropriate'. Do you mean that Harry whilst under the influence of a magic drug kisses Romilda - he can't help it, much as Ron can't help running after Romilda when he accidentally eats the chocolates in HBP. Was JKR 'inappropriate when she wrote that? Do you mean that Draco getting seduced by Millicent in 'inappropriate'? Do you mean that Seamus working in a pub is inappropriate? Do you have a problem with alcohol? Do you have a problem with 'sexual situations'? If that's the case then please please please don't click on stories that have that warning. It is clearly 'inappropriate' for you to read them because the concept disgusts you.
Word of warning. Your reviews are neither useful nor intelligent. Saying a story sucked will only help if you explain why. It's also rather rude and a sure way to get your account deleted. Fortunately, I'm an older and experienced fanfiction author who really doesn't give a rats' about trolls, but some authors on this site get upset. Think before you type. If you really hate a story, it's probably best not to review, unless you have real critique and not just the ability to string five words together - oooh, and make a little face - how cute!
It sucked. Thats really inappropriate! >:(
Author's Response: What a concise critic you are.
WHAT WAS THE BLOODY POINT OF THAT?! IT WAS SO ZECHAD INNAPROPRIATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Oh, for Zechad's sake! Can't you see the zechad point? *sigh* I really should see the bright side to this. The fact that someone like you can actually read means that your government literacy programme is obviously working.
Small tip: If you want to be taken seriously when reviewing, it's a good idea to use English rather than slang and to cut out the exclamation marks. They're the sign of a six-year-old trying to make a really significant point. And caps lock - that's considered rather rude in cyber circles.
If you have any 'real issues' with this story which is clearly marked as HUMOUR and has the appropriate warnings, then feel free to review again. I am willing to talk you through any problems you have with comprehension.
...HAHAHA!!! THAT WOULD BE HILARIOUS!!! You should write a sequel about the rest and what Draco's reaction to everythin will be...HAHAHAHA!!!!!
Author's Response: Poor Draco. I'd love to see his face in the morning ... ~Carole~
funny story, one problem though. you say at the beggining that the perfume bottle smashes and then at the end you say that romilda puts the stopper in it? just thought you ought to know.
but it was good anyway. :)
Author's Response: OOH, thanks for that! That's what happens when you expand a story two years after first writing it. I shall alter now! Glad you liked it though. ~Carole~
u did it again.....
totally made me laugh .......though poor draco
i am a complete fan
Author's Response: Thank you very much. This was a bit silly, but I liked writing it. ~Carole~
great! very funny and the perfect length.
Author's Response: Thank you. Just a bit of fun for Valentines Day. ~Carole~
Nice work, made me chuckle. I was sad that Harry technically cheated on Ginny though, even though it wasn't his fault
Author's Response: He didn't do much more than kiss Romilda, and I think he'd probably end up telling her. He's such a celeb that it's bound to happen - poor Harry. Thanks for reading ~Carole~
LOL! poor Darco.
Author's Response: Yes, he;ll get a shock in the morning. Thanks for reading. ~Carole~
This story is brilliant! Funny and definitely not what I normally read, though I really enjoyed it. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you. It was just a bit of fun, so pleased it went down well. ~Carole~
That story was a nice light laugh on Malfoy. The one place that gave me pause, though, was at the deus ex machina save by Seamus. I would have thought Seamus would do something more white collar in a post-Hogwarts career or, if not, he would been tending bar in Ireland rather than London.
Can you please, please, please post more on Apparently Asleep?! It's one of my two all time favorite stories on MNFF, and it's been so long since there's been an update. I'm dying to know when and how Remus will finally get together, since you scrubbed the Reconnaissance version. Please write more on it!
Author's Response: OOOh, I have a chapter with a beta at the moment, so I'm just waiting or her corrections, and then I'll post. Not sure how satisfying you'll find it though. Mmm, I had to scrap the Reconnaissance version because they'd had a kiss long before Order days. Sorry for the wait, but I have other fics and an OF to update.
Glad you liked this story. Um, I always think of Seamus as an action man. I think tending bar is an option, but white collar stuck behind a desk would bore him senseless. He liked being outdoors and blowing things up. The bar tending was under-cover, by the way, this wasn't his career. ~Carole~
Ah, Carole, this was a fun romp. I think Romilda is well-suited for this... you've convinced me Lavender is too smart for this. And I loved your Seamus, too.
Laughing about poor Draco. I hope he's sober enough to know what's going on when he wakes up in the morning. LOL.
Author's Response: Should I save Draco, or should I have a very ugly, very blonde kid attebding Hogwarts in 12 years time?
Heh heh heh
Thank you for the review. ~Carole~
Hahahaha! This was brilliant. It really made me laugh. The thought of Draco getting it on with Bulstrode...*shudder* I'm glad you decided to post it, Carole! ~Natalie
Author's Response: hee hee. Well, it was a bit of a big rewrite. The original girl was Lavender, and Millicent was only featured by name. Poor Draco *snort*. Should I save him? ~Carole~
Oh this definitely brightened my afternoon, Carole. I love that you partially redeemed Romilda with the way she cares about her job, even though it's entirely unglamorous and how she tries not to take advantage of Harry, but in the end there's still a bit of the girl who spiked Harry's chocolates in her.
Seamus was a brilliant, blunt and matter-of-fact foil, and the ending very nearly had me snorting tea over my keyboard! Poor Draco.
Author's Response: Who wouldn't turn down 'The Boy Who Lived'? Thank you for the review, Hannah. This was a bit of a last minute fic once I'd trawled through my drabbles and found one I could adapt for V day. I'm wondering if I should rescue Draco ... no perhaps not. Thanks again ~Carole~
Ha, that's cute! Great idea with the charmed perfume, and especially in using Romilda. She got her Harry after all. I was glad Seamus came in and stopped it, though...but then happy to see Harry let Draco get his Valentine, lol. I think you worked out the end just right, the last line was brilliant. Happy Valentine's Day!
Author's Response: Do you think I should save Draco? Hmm, not sure. Glad you enjoyed the story even though it was pretty silly. I had to save Harry from Romilda or my canon card would have been revoked indefinitely. Thank you for the review; I do appreciate it ~Carole~
Very silly, very very silly! That's the way I like it!! Hehehehe! Poor Draco though! I don't think it is fair. But it was incredibly funny! ^^,
It was hillarious to include Romilda being herself in the story. And I was pretty grateful to see dear old Seamus jumping in Just In Time!
Great Funny Valentine story!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. Yes, it was very silly, and I really had to have Harry saved from Romilda's clutches. In a way, I'm hoping they save Draco as well,although a Bulstrode/Malfoy child could be fun. Glad you enjoyed the story ~Carole~
I know you are too much of a Canon Chic to let him knock her up and spend the rest of his life with her, but it would be so much fun to watch....
Good on Seamus for at least reporting it, and...I can't blame Harry, I have to say...
Author's Response: Draco knock Millicent up ... or Harry knocking Romilda up. heh heh, that could make for a very interesting Platform nine and three-quarters in 12 years time. Thank you, Thea. A bit of Valentime's fun resurrected from a drabble written over 2 years ago. The original girl was Lavender ... but I like her too much now. ~Carole~
