Reviews for The Pureblood Pretense
Failing Mentality chapter 1 . 1/25/2012
I really liked the Lioness Quartet, but even though Alanna was known as Alan to others, she never forgot to think of herself as Alanna. Did you decide to make her think of herself as Rigel to cement her posturing? Otherwise I would find it odd that she would even throw away her identity within the confines of her own mind.

Omg FINALLY someone who knows how to write a house elf! I get so sick of reading bad grammared house elfs, as opposed to bad-tense house elfs. It's not that hard... So thank you for actually writing a believable house elf!

I liked the idea with the tracing thingy of the textbook, I have to say it was quite ingenious.

And I really do like how you construct the slytherins and make them quite unique with their politics and methods of order and how situations are largely based on how they behave and react as a slytherin and a pure blood.

Also, please don't respond to reviews at the top of the story etc. well, it really depends how you do it. Lots of reviews aren't worth replying to, and those that are it's easier just to private message them. It might be different if you only replied to one or two or three reviews, but as a reader, some authors reply to like every single review in the chapter, and it takes up half the chapter and half the replying aren't even necessary. Dedications at top are alright, coz it really shows the reviewer as well that their reviewing is appreciated. Hmm did any of that make sense? Haha

Still love your story!

Great story!
SeveralSunlitDays7 chapter 9 . 1/14/2012
Yay another chapter! I get so excited!

I forgot to say before, I love your characterisation of Fred and George! Even though you write them your own way, they still sound and act ridiculously on par to Jo Rowling's characterisation of them, and I think that's hard to do for a lot of people, even though they're simple enough characters.

And also, do you reckon Pomfrey would be able to tell Rigel is a girl, even if she is only fixing a broken arm? Or is Rigel just being paranoid... that would make sense actually.

And ohhh I want to find out who trip-jinxed her. Hehehe I'm so glad theres been so many updates, I'm really enjoying this story.

Thank you for updating so quickly- the same night! It's interesting to know Rigel has a new enemy. Or maybe not so new, I don't know. But this chapter was fantastic (of course) and I enjoy the bits about Potions. Harry of course never liked Potions, so we never heard very much about that topic, especially compared to DADA.
SeveralSunlitDays7 chapter 8 . 1/14/2012
Oh my god an update an update lots of updates *does a little happy dance*

I really do enjoy this, because it's so totally AU that it's alright, if you know what I mean? There are some types of OC or OOC that are annoying because they try to stick to cannonish or are so far away from any similarity that it's painful, but I think you've successfully created a happy medium between the two.

When will snape discover rigel is a she? Will it be like Myles and only have suspicions for years until he's finally told at the end? Or will he find out sooner... And when will pansy and Draco find out? For some reason I feel like pansy would find out first, but it's not like there will be a 'that time of month' drama that will reveal the lie.

Not that you have to tell me or anything, I'm just speculating :)

Coz I love love love this fic and I like where it's going, and I like that it's unique to both stories it's based off, which leaves lots of room for guesswork.

I love your story so, so much.

I love the characterization you've given to characters like Pansy and Draco, who never really had a chance to be portrayed in a positive light in the books. (Well, Draco, in a way, but still.) I especially love Snape in the most recent chapter.

I love the plot. I am a huge Tamora Pierce fan, and I love your crossover-ish plot, with Rigel/Harriet and Archie taking the place of Alanna and Thom.

It's just. Amazing. Yay. Please update soon!
kichi chapter 5 . 12/11/2011
I love the whole Jelly-brains instead of jelly-legs, Ron would make that fluke. I can only imagine how it would be if my brains we're temporarily turned to jelly. And how she saved Neville, I kind of like how she sees magic. Like not being able to do a spell unless she needs to. Ah, well, I must be off and o think next time I'll log in.
kichi chapter 4 . 12/10/2011
Kyuuu? This chapter has made me wonder, what shall be the pairings? If any. Oh and. I love the bird nest thing, ahaha! I can picture it, he's so cute in my head. Dearest Coco is so cute. I should probably stop before I start a paragraph about how cute Coco is.
STILL way too lazy chapter 3 . 12/7/2011
Ooh! Now I can't wait for the next chapter, you can expect that I'll be following this story. It's actually rather interesting, your fem!harry is very un-marysue-ish... definitely not a word, ahaha! Yes, I hope you continue because the potential of this becoming amazing seems likely.

still too lazy chapter 2 . 12/7/2011
Hnn, is Draco watching because of mother dearest? Or is he suspicious. Oh, and I like how you portray Pansy. I think she is too under appreciated. The slight inputs about Blaine have made me quite happy as well. He 's one if my favorite characters. All in all, very good chapter. Keep it up.

too lazy to log in chapter 1 . 12/7/2011
Dohoho, this seems to be the starting of a rather good fem!harry story. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't excited. Recent fem!harry stories get me excited. Chi-yaaaah~ I hope you continue with this.

Oh. My. God. This is actually brilliant. I love Alanna the Lioness, and I love Harry Potter even more, and throwing them together makes this even more better. I don't usually read female!Harry stories, but this is obviously entirely different and entirely AU.

I'm curious as to where it's going, coz if it's based off Lioness plot wise and romantically, but then obviously needs the Hogwarts and story elements... I don't think that sentence actually made sense.. Ah well. I'm super curious and it's already drawn me in and I can't wait to see what happens.

From what you've said, it's a rewrite, and though I haven't seen the original, I'm glad, coz this is BRILLIANT. Harriet is obviously a different person, and female, but she still retains characteristics of Harry.

And I love that the Sorting Hat knew.

I'm also curious as to how you'll set it out, will you go the entire first year, or will you skip certain years or periods to get them actually old enough to have romantic interests?

Seriously, I'm loving it.
