|Reviews for MIT: Hampstead Heath Corpse|
| NoTagBacks chapter 1 . 1/30
It's fun to go back and re-read the MIT stories, to see little things that didn't seem important, but that show up in later-written stories. For instance, Stan Cresswell showing up as an experienced Auror in MIT: Entente Cordial, and Bobbie's meeting with Harry, Ron, and Hermione in Friends and Foes. Plus I had forgotten Lavender's statement that no one would ever see her in her cage, although Mark Moon becomes the only one who does. Even though the story Moon was completed earlier than MIT: Hampstead Heath Corpse, this only made the connection in my head because I just re-read Moon (and Moons and Brown) last week.
How do you keep track of all those details? They certainly make your stories richer.

Jack Templar a jerk, Lavender Brown have some dignity

I really like the turn at the end.
Brown, Bones and Beadle was as entertaining as ever. The new characters was perfectly described and had a genuine and fully believable personality.

Oh my god what an asshole he turned out to be. Poor lavender. Cool fic.

This is so interesting! I love the details about the new characters and the intricacy of the plot. I'm really curious how Bobbie got assigned (does she have a Muggle-born sibling? How does she know about the wizarding world?) and how Harry set up this team in general. (I know, I'm reading it out of order, but I saw that the first MIT story was still in progress, and I'm impatient ;) Think of me as pretending I've been following you since the beginning. Not to mention the writer in me is curious as to how the story works without the backstory, and how the backstory works after the fact.)

What an ass... I'm glad I found the story where Lavender DOES find someone who treats her with respect or this story would have made me too mad!
You do spin great tales, I've enjoyed going through all yoru stories even though I haven't commented on every one of them.

Another good onshot

Nice story and case. A shame Jack turned out to be a dick.

Okay, I'm absolutely crushed to see 'complete' as the story status - this is one of the most original stories I've ever read on this site, and I was so, so keen for it to be lengthy! Haha.
The only quibble I have is that the end was rather sudden, and Jack's reaction (actually, that's not quite right, it was more of an over-reaction) was a little unexpected which did disappoint me since there was to be no resolution (the story being a one shot and all). I really wanted him to be like 'whatevs you're still gorgeous' because I do like Lavender and in this she was spectacularly envisioned.
Anyway, that said, this was fabulously well written, well characterised, and fantastically and realistically merged the magical into the muggle world.
I can only hope that one day you'll randomly decide to make it into a WIP.
Thanks for a brilliant read. :)

Good fic. I greatly enjoyed it - until the last couple of paragraphs.
Jack's reaction to Lavender's scars make me dislike and dispise him, whereas until them I had found him both real and engaging. Even though the scarring horrified Jack, even the most basic and minimal element of good manners should have made him attempt to hide that fact. That he did not know why she may have been crying made him into a moron, and that he is so fixated on appearances makes him shallow.
I have not read any others of your fics with Jack as a character so perhaps he is intended to be a very flawed character and as such, a complex and interesting person. So, I shall reserve my opinion of him until I've read more. LOL (Off to look for more fics with him in them right now.)
Well, in a minute anyway, meanwhile I'd like to say that it is a great pleasure to read HP fanfics written in good British English and with virtually no errors of grammar. Also your fics are original and free of cliches; I admire the fertility of your imagination and your gift for story telling.
(Now I really am off to find more fics.0

Decent tale. Lots of open-ended questions about the "universe", but if this story fits with others maybe they answer some of the questions. I'll have to take a look at more of your work.
Kind of a downer, but totally realistic, right at the end.
| PeterJAC chapter 1 . 6/2/2011
Great one-shot. Would love to see more from this universe.
| Darth Marrs chapter 1 . 6/2/2011
Excellent one-shot there.
