Enjoyable, but I was expecting an answer as to why gnomes are out and about.

Author's Response: Haha. I guess I did sort of leave everyone hanging on that little bit of information. I think that gnomes, like most magical creatures, are attracted to magical areas--they have a sense about it. Therefore, I think it's pretty easy to assume that gnomes would reside in the garden of the Snapes because they are instinctually drawn to the magic of the house and its inhabitants--just like at the Burrow. As to why they are roaming the neighborhood of Spinner's End... well, I imagine gnomes to be bold little creatures and they've just grown brave and decided to venture out of the confines of one particular garden. Muggles, I imagine, would do a double take if they happened to see one, but by the time they looked back, the gnome would be gone and then the Muggle would simply think they were overtired or imaged what they had seen. I hope that's a pretty good explanation? It was all very clear in my head when I was writing this story. ; ) Thanks so much for your review!

The issue of lying and trust is one that must be addressed with every child. I like how you've handled it with these characters. Well done!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review! Yes, I think every kid inevitably falls into a lie or two, and I'm glad that you liked my characterizations here. I love getting your reviews! Thanks again!

I think Zoe is my favourite female character.

Author's Response: Aww, thank you! I'm really glad you like her! I've tried to make her as believable as possible and have a bit of Severus' personality in her. It isn't always easy, but I do my best. Thanks so much for your review.

You're off to a fine start except for that first sentence of the 3rd paragraph. Using "as much as" twice felt awkward at best...

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review! And thanks for pointing out the "as much as" mistake. I'm so embarrassed. It's like I don't know English at all. I guess that's what I get for doing my final revise/review at 3am... haha. Anyway, I'll fix it when I submit the new chapter. Have a great day!
