This fic touched me powerfully. It didn't make me happy - in fact, it upset me pretty considerably - but it touched me nonetheless. Powerful writing, and I thank you for it.

I was going to reserve judgement on this work until the very end, but once I got to the part about Professor Carter explaining Sioux shape-shifting and THEN the part about the conservative states, I had to say something. This is without a doubt one of the finest pieces of fanfic I've ever read. It exists in the universe it came from with near-perfect accuracy, but-miraculously-has its own voice, and like the best of fan contributions it elevates rather than detracts from its source material. If you have not published something for purchase yet-an original work of your own, I mean-you surely should. Cleverness and inventiveness are one thing; a truly great author knows how to augment and innovate, as you have done. Much like Shakespeare culling "Hamlet" and "Titus" from other popular material, I see no reason why your work couldn't have a tremendous following of its own. Please write something new, and soon. I am inspired by this, and I'm sure others are and will be, too.

I just discovered your fic list from a recommendation from Reddit, and I just want to say I squealed when I read that one of Salem Institutes were in Roanoke, Virginia. I'm from that area and went to college in the 'Noke. It probably doesn't mean a lot, but it made me happy to see my home state represented in a fanfiction.
I'm a total nerd, I know. But I love this story and I'm glad I discovered it.

Holy crap, your killing me. I love your writing, and one can tell your an educator/teacher. I have to look up a big word ever couple of sections just to understand. I'm told this is good though, considering, it means the reader is reading within a challenging level. Not so challenging that its bothersome, but enough so they they are learning. Anyway loved it, on to the next. (Even though your killin me.. I ought to be writing my college application to transfer to a University.. but I'm so sucked in... Your stories have eaten me, like all good stories/books do.)

This story introduced me to the world of reading (good) fan fictions. You were my first star of a fan fiction writer, and thus in a way a part of my life I won't forget. Multiple times your chapters left me hungry for another, postponing the time I caught sleep. And I loved it. 5 first chapters of pure misery almost turned me away from this magnificent story, but luckily I stayed resiliant. Thanks for the journey. - SnowAngel

Sometimes I forget that Ginny is still a student. She just seems so mature.
