Ha! Maybe Dumbledore was actually keeping the strawberries in full view of Phineas :p
Anyway I loved this fic. Very clever idea. Being a bibliophile, Hermione cpukd certainly do that. Very well written ;)

This is really, really cute.

Yes! Love it and one would hope to have a whole library of self reading books if you were a painting for hundreds of years no wonder the portraits in the headmasters office are always portrayed as sleeping, They're bored to death

Aw, how sweet.
| Kodachi chapter 1 . 7/12/2012
I think this is an almost inevitable outcome, considering Hermione's bibliophilia. Sooner or later she would end up reading to those who can't.

I liked it. This was oddly . . . sweet. The fact that you could keep them in character was amazing. The idea was original and the story was well-written. Thank you so much for writing this beautiful piece.

This is a really interesting story - I love your characterization of Phineas, as he's really not featured much in the books. Bravo.

Very cute. Thanks for posting it.
| NectarAndAmbrosia chapter 1 . 8/29/2009
Your skill amazes me lol.
I mean, you can really write.
It's really awesomely sweet. Makes me wonder if Hermione taking down Phineas's portrait with them on the quest had some kind of backstory lol. So heartwarming haha. And very much everyone in character too.

Lovely! I liked this a lot, but then I have a soft spot for Phineas. :-) He just doesn't make enough appearances for me! Nice way to show what ghosts would miss, and I liked also that the development of magic since Phineas died was given some thought.

Oh my. This was brilliant. Very ingenious. I absolutely loved it.
| Lily Knotwise chapter 1 . 9/9/2006
Well writen, and different.
I liked it.
| Loki Mischeif-Maker chapter 1 . 7/2/2006
Heh - clever little story here, and once again I love the ending. You've captured both Phineas and Hermione's personalities perfectly in this fic, and once again the last line left me chuckling under my breath.
And once again the internal Grammar Nazi is silent. Kudos to you!
So, another good fic!

What an excellent idea! I hadn't thought before of what it must be like to be a portrait and incapable of reading the books that they can still see out there in the real world. And I suppose only an extremely obsessive and well-read artist would be able to place a readable book in a picture and they probably wouldn't bother. And it's quite brilliant of Hermione to figure out that way to bribe a portraite. And I'll bet she gets an interesting perspective on what she's reading by having some of his observations. A great idea all round.
