Simply marvelous, once i started reading I couldn't hold back. Keep writing, because you're bloody brilliant at it. Thank you for this story.

Chloe clapped her heads together? Sounds painful...
To be honest, I agree with Peeves. The Sorting Hat's song had great content, and was fairly rhythmic also. Going back to Chloe a minute, Teddy should count himself lucky - not everyone gets someone so eager to cling to them...and I'm sure Chloe has plenty of opportunities, considering how the boys 'made room for her...' I may be over-analysing though...

Now, what's interesting here is how uncertain these four seem to be about their houses in comparison to the others on the train, despite how influenced we've seen them be in their houses' way of thinking. But then again, for all we know, there could be a lot of uncertainties they have that they're just not showing.
What I really like about this scene is how you're already setting up the traits of the houses they're destined for - it makes sense for Dewey to be the one to promote the pact, considering the Hufflepuff-like qualities of loyalty and companionship. You can also see a contrast to him with Kai, who's an expert at making snide, witty remarks but at the risk of Violet's irritation growing. Teddy also shows courage in some form in attempting to intiate conversation and build bridges with Violet, talking about their families, and to a lesser extent, her shoes. And Violet's dry sarcasm is perfect! Hogwarts houses are, I think, a fascinating subject for a fic, and I'm glad you haven't particularly trumpeted or demonized any house in particular, noting both their negative and positive qualities. Good work!

OK, I think I'll start off by saying I started reading this fic quite a while back, but unfortunately never managed to finish it. This time I'm determined to do so though! Along with reviewing as best I can.
The way you introduced the four protagonists probably couldn't have been better. You reveal the most important background aspects of them without revealing everything so we're eager to see more of them, and firmly set out their differences in how they feel they should measure up to certain influences in their life, with the notable exception of Violet who seems prominently less enthusiastic than the other three.
To be honest, I don't know how well my analysis holds sway, as I haven't read all of this yet, nor do I really know your intentions when writing. All I can say is that it was very well written, the set-up for a plot I already know to be fantastic, and I shall be now going onto the next chapter!

PLEASE WRITE MORE! I just read all of it it in a row, I couldnt put my laptop down!

Well written, but uninspiring plot. It feels more like "The Famous Five" than "Harry Potter". All the adults are over-the-top stupid, and a bunch of 11-year-old kids save the day again. I find myself skipping large parts of the text.

That's all I have to say.

Hopefully Teddy's following years at Hogwarts won't be so bloody as his first.
I loved Teddy's Flitwick ploy, and the Slipfang fight was pretty well done, too. Very Potterish.

In many ways, Teddy is a lot like Harry: loves his godfather, but not necessarily going to listen to everything he hears.

Well, Neville was pretty brutal. I understand he's miffed at Teddy, and miffed at this whole situation for having to oversee students' expulsions, but he still cut to the quick.
I also notice teachers have been much more apt to take away points than they were in Harry's day. It could be that they've been encouraged to be a little more forceful, but it still strikes me as odd.
I do like how Dewey's friendly little idea has turned into basically a new DA. Always works better on paper, doesn't it?
| Kradeiz chapter 13 . 1/16
That's pretty heavy. I'm curious how this is going to turn about, and I'm glad you had Llewellyn stick to her guns because it would have been too convenient and, yes, preferential treatment if she'd let Teddy off the hook.
| Kradeiz chapter 12 . 1/16
I'd totally forgotten about the Marauder's Map, should come in handy, though I know full well the culprit won't be revealed until the final term.
I like the decisions you have the teachers make in this story, they make sense both for the situations and for their characters.
| Kradeiz chapter 11 . 1/16
Of course, just when things are starting to look up...
Maybe the holidays will be better.

Nevilles speech was fantastic, as were Slughorns, Llewellyns and the Hats. Im really curious to see how this turns out.
When I read one of JKs notes that after the War, house relations with Slytherin improved, I was skeptical, but if something like this was canon, I could definitely believe it.
| Kradeiz chapter 9 . 1/15
Well done, Teddy. Horrible to go through, but probably the only thing that wouldve worked.
Slughorns bit was nice, too. Hes not a bad guy, just rather self-serving.
Now the only question is whos stealing wands?
