    Summary: After the war, Neville and Harry meet up to mock people and get drunk. It's a good life. Post-DH oneshot crackfic.

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4389875/1/Gossip_Queens

    Yes, I realize that Harry is with Ginny in this fic. But other than a quick mention of her she plays no role at all.

    What we have is Neville and Harry mocking their students/Aurors. It packs in a great laugh to word ratio. Hopefully you'll enjoy.

    4/5 for me.

    Ok, so this was a decent way to pass three minutes. And the ending was funny as hell. Not to mention the metaphor-simile thing. Yeah ok, I mostly liked it all.

    3.5/5

    It was alright. It was mildly funny, until the end of course.

    Anyway, I'll give it a 4/5, just for the ending.

    This oneshot is made of greatness and cookies. I need to go out and do that sometime.

    Goddamnit, brings back painful memories too. Grammar ain't that difficult... *cries a bit*

    I thought the title was terrible but I absolutely loved the one-shot. I guess it naturally appealed to my inner grammar whore. It was funny, totally unexpected, short and to the point, anything but pretentious; a perfect way to spend a couple of minutes. Favourited.

    5/5

    I thought it was rather boring myself. Didn't even smile once. 2/5

    LOL. This was beautiful. I bet Tinn got wet.

    This was very pleasant. I just imagined this happening in canon. Not a lot of humor comes DLP way that isn't perverse in someway so it's nice to read some simple comedy.

    Put it in the library. 5/5.

    Well spent 5 minutes.

    I gave it a 4/5. A good story, effective at what it was attempting to do, but not the sort of transcendence I require to elicit my 5/5 click. My love of grammar excellence was tempered by a dislike of drunk-speech, which was too heavy in this piece.

    Still, definitely library-able.

    It was brilliant, like a quiet day fishing by a pond. With maggots.

    5/5 for me. I haven't laughed so hard in weeks.

    It made me chuckle. 4/5 for me. I liked the little announcement at the end.

    "And at the end of the evening they teepee Malfoy Manor."

    Short and sweet. It's not a 5 star work, but it's library worthy. 4 stars.

    It made me laugh, and after the past two days I've had, that's a good accomplishment. Short, sweet, and totally worth it.

    4.5/5
