Reviews For Parent-Teacher Conference
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! Ohhh, I think you are the only person who expected it, so congrats to you! In the first draft, Harry was worse and I made him a bit more like Sirius, but then I read through and decided that it wasn't very in character for Harry and that Remus would have been the counter-balance to Sirius and kept Harry on the straight and narrow. Good ol' Remus!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! If I thought I had the skill to pull off the Sev-tells-Harry scene then I would continue; but I don't think I have. I really appreciate the review, and yep, if I ever did continue you'd need the tissues ready!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad you liked the twist! I wasn't sure whether people would think it looked like an afterthought. In the plan I did explain a bit about Sirius and the Dursleys but then when I came to write it I realised that part just didn't fit and so I took it out. Thanks again!
My criticism would be that I think you need a beta, as there are some typos here and there and you have some date discrepancies as well that take away from what is otherwise an awesome fic. As for the dates, when the letter from Snape comes home to Sirius, it says the meeting is in April, but then everyone is suddenly talking about Harry coming home for Christmas in a few weeks. Really, that's an easy fix though.
Your Sirius is quite good and sassy. My favorite part was "behave" and then "badly" lol. Very nice. I really enjoyed this fic.
Thanks so much for the review! I was a bit worried about the end because of how quickly the mood changed (and because I'm a bit of a sappy happily-ever-after sort of person) and whether it fitted but everyone seems to have liked it! *sighs in relief*
Thanks for the con crit too, I really ought to get myself a beta; I'm just so darn impatient! When I've written something I just hate waiting for it to go through the beta-ering process. I fixed as many typos as I could find (I expect I missed some though) and I fixed the dates! In the plan, it was always taking place just before Christmas so I have no idea what was going through my head when I typed April!
I'm glad you liked my portrayal of Sirius; he's my favourite character! Well, him and Remus.
This list could just keep on growing!
Thanks so much for the review! I thought that part might take a few people by surprise, I do like to add little twists though. I was slightly worried that it wouldn't work but everyone seems to have reacted well to it.
Well, I really enjoyed writing it so lots of thanks to you for writing the challenge!
But otherwise, lovely! I really liked it, I thought it sweet. I loved the relationship between Sirius and Remus and Harry, and you really kept the characters (Sirius in particular) in character. Also, the twist was good, didn't see it coming. I really should by now, the amount of times it happens on this site, yet every time I'm surprised. O_o
Thanks so much for the review and for correcting my mistakes! Harry is now on his way to 'Transfiguration' and stops by at Hagrid's Hut on the way to speak to him, and the homework is now marked in percentages. Hopefully, that's everything fixed. Thanks so much for pointing that out.
I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I'm a bit of a sap for Remus-Sirius-Harry bonding but also Severus-Harry father-son, so I thought I'd add a bit of both but add the little twist that Harry doesn't know about it!
It has to be so hard for Severus with the situation, and I can see why he's wanting more of Harry. He knows there has to be talent there somewhere.
Thanks so much for the review! I would quite like to continue too, but I just always worry that I will ruin something if I try and drag too much out of it. I also have a LOT of WIPs over at FF.net which need finishing off so I really ought to concentrate on those.
A sequel might be possible though.
