Awwwwwwwww....to both the chapter and the thanks :) Glad you could join us! I'm still grinning -- over the chapter, that is. That was so sweet, and Rowen is such a gentleman.
Nice insight about McGonagall's character. I've always wondered if she were an ex-Auror, or at least an ex Ministry official. Also, I agree with you -- I think the politics would have turned her right off. She is so level-headed and even handed. Her sense of justice would be outraged at the political shennanigans.
Author's Response: I see you put me on the recommended list! Thank you so much!
Awww, poor Sophie! She is so sweetly insecure. Her cooking exploits remind me of my rare attempts to cook -- I can completely sympathise! She's braver than I am in that respect.
Author's Response: I actually wrote the first draft of this while doing my Shabbos cooking. My challah became her French bread, and the tears from my onions gained magical powers. It was a great creative exercise.
I assume this takes place during their winter holiday? Very cute, I really loved the line about not knowing what "scratch" was, LOL! Interesting insights from Rowen on Muggles. I'm really beginning to like him. And ice skating -- can't get much more romantic than that!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for keeping up with the story and telling me you're doing it!
Yay! Glad to see you here *waves!* Welcome to Wizardtales, and as I said, this story is great. Look forward to seeing more :)
Author's Response: Oh, believe me, there will be more. I'm hoping to catch up to the same place the story's holding on my livejournal and then post every Monday just like there. I do hope people will come and read!
I really enjoyed the insight into young Tom's thought, and Rowena's quill (I am going to assume that that's the quill the Professor owns o.O) is a truly brilliant idea. Excellent job :D
Author's Response: Thank you so much for saying so! Sorry I didn't write back until now, but I've only just discovered this function.
