Okay, I simply have to leave a review for this story! Like NikkiSue said, she recommended it to us Slyths and I simply LOVED it.
I wouldn't have picked it up normally, had she not recommended it, but I'm so glad I did. It is such an amazing story, and it portrays the family relations so well. Also, that scottish accent was the best haha
Anyway, cheers, and congratulations on such a nice story!
Author's Response: Thanks. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Glad you thought the accent worked; that's always a gamble, especially for those of us who aren't of the Scottish persuasion, LOL!
So, I was the mod who approved your story here and I must come clean. First and foremost, had I not been in the queue moderating the stories which had been sitting for a while, I NEVER would have picked this one to just sit and read. Rarely do I willingly pick up something going that far back; I think I have read maybe two stories centering around Minerva. Ever. Regardless, I paroosed through your little one-shot here and as the reviewer above me said, "I was smiling." It was so much fun to see the interaction within such a loving family, all within just one chapter, and you closed it up so nicely in the end. You did an amazing job and I have it bookmarked and I am also recommending it to my Slyths. (I'm their HoH here on the boards)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It's really lovely when someone for whom a story wouldn't ordinarily be "quite their cup of tea" reads it and enjoys it. I've had some of my best reading experiences when I venture outside my "normal" circle of preferences. Thanks for modding!
I love the Scottish words and language you used! You have a real knack of capturing how people speak! :) it's amazing that some children pick up magic so quickly...
Author's Response: Thanks! It was a bit of a stretch, given that the closest I've ever been to Scotland is Paris, LOL! Yes, I see Minerva McGonagall as a powerful witch with an even more powerful set of opinions.
This brought a smile to my lips!!! Well done!
Author's Response: Many thanks. It was fun to write something light for a change!
