| faerieMagic07 chapter 1 . 2/7
Just an input if it's not already known. I heard somewhere that the story of Hansel and Gretel was a result of famine so bad that parents would contemplate eating their children. Or other people eating other people's children. I am not defending the mother but only explaining that it was really a morbid time and people were pressured to think of fast solutions.
"My king, my neighbor lied to me."
"She said, 'bring your child so that we might cook him, and tomorrow, I will bring mine.' but the next day, after we cooked my child, she hid her child."
- I read this from the bible, and the commentary on it also suggested famine warping the judgement and crashing the morale of the parents to the extreme.

These are great! Just one thing, I would put the brackets in the title as well, as that makes it a load easier to read. Also, can you combine these with Muggle Fairy Tales are Mad!?

Very ve-e-ery great
Just a note: it is not 'faired' but 'fared'

Another fun story! I am really enjoying reading these. My favorite line is below - funny that he DID do just later on in the books :) Nice way to work it in.
"Well done, little white bird!" Ron said approvingly. "We could do with one of those around here. Hey, Harry, if you ever happen to see a white animal moving through the forest that wants you to follow it, be sure to do it, right?"
"I'll try to remember that if that unlikely event should ever occur, Ron," Harry said, laughing at the idea, though quietly he started to wonder whether the bird in the story didn't sound a bit like a patronus.

Ooh. Good stuff.

I love these stories, but I do wish you could combine them all into your story "Muggle Fairy Tales are Mad!" I'm sure it would be so much easier if you could do that! Thank you very much.

Never mind that last review on your Jack and the Beanstalk. This story is listed as a HP fic, not a crossover so I didn't see it at first... This is super!

Hansel and Gretal has always been my least favorite fairy tale as a child.
This was a great story, though! Ron and Harry's interuptions were in-character, along with Hermione's exasperation. I have a question though - [In the original cast of the Hansel and Gretel opera, the witch was played by a performer named- Hermine Finck] Is that true?

Every time I read one of these, I picture Hermione sitting in an armchair and Ron and Harry sitting on the floor by her feet while she tells them a story... I know that's not what's actually happening in the fic, but it's pretty funny.

"Hey, Harry, if you ever happen to see a white animal moving through the forest that wants you to follow it, be sure to do it, right?"
"Still, I can't help thinking of Mum and Dad. I never really thought about how, well, you know, with so many of us, and how they always never have quite enough money… it could be a lot worse."
*sniffle* That bit just struck me as quite sweet for some reason.

Ron lost his appetite for a type of food? Nothing like Hansel and Gretel to do that to a person. Great job.

That's interesting, about the actor's name - I didn't even know there was an opera. But Ron's family was never really pressed for food - as long as they had some, they could make more and unlike Hermione, Mrs. Weasley could actually turn that food into something edible. Being poor in the wizarding world isn't (or at least shouldn't've been) all that big of a deal. Magic should be able to help a lot, and you can't run out of it.
Loved the story!

I can only marvel at the perfection of this story, really. You hit so many points so perfectly, it's just a masterpiece.

Lots of love
