    It makes me laugh, and more importunately, it leaves me wanting more. Total 5/5 from me.

    I love the characterizations and the humor. 4/5 Right now, but could easily be a 5 once its finished.

    This has my full attention.

    4.5/5 Unique, creative, fun to read, it flows well without dragging on in any particular spot. The characters are natural and realistic and for once I can fucking stand Ron without him being wildly altered from canon.

    A teen comedy film set in Hogwarts. Not my cup of tea.

    No. Teen comedies are usually much dumber, filled with more sex, and lack any emotional breadth or depth. Teen comedy films are also usually filled with what I like to term as "stupidity humor". Where the laughs and amusement come from the characters being absolutely retarded and/or needlessly cruel.

    Since this isn't nearly so vapid or shallow as all that, your assessment is, in one word...

    Wrong.

    This story is not abandoned and will be completed in the next few months (though I'd like to get it done by Christmas, we'll see). Someone kindly label it WIP. Chapter 10 was also posted today for anyone who hasn't read it in WbA.

    Just to note, I read through this story on FF, and yeah, the changes you mentioned making in the WbA thread, Don, before posting it bump this story up a notch or so. I still think it's lost a bit of it's charm from the earlier chapters, but there's enough to keep me going until it's all over.

    The ABANDONED tag probably no longer applies, no?

    Story is still not abandoned. (Hey mods, what's a wigger got a'do to change the words in the SQUARE in the thread title.) Chapter Twelve posted on FF.net and 1/3 of Chapter Thirteen is in the WbA.

    Protip: Fleur/Harry have sex. Very nice.

    Huh, just spotted this today and read through all twelve chapters at once. Any idea on whether there's going to be an update schedule set in place or if it will just written on the go, whenever you have the time and inspiration?

    Because I'm kind of curious about the confrontation that's going to happen.

    Oh and I absolutely detest Hermione in this fic, I felt like pointing this out. Strangely enough, I find myself liking Ron the best.

    All twelve at once? Nice. It won't be long. A little over 1/3 of it is done. I will have to slow down a bit to get my Anthology project done but I don't expect more than... two weeks? As far as a schedule... naw, I don't think I will :)

    EDIT: Thanks, mods.

    I remember coming across this fic some months back but after reading the first chapter my interest declined. I was looking for funny and came across this again and chose to give it amother chance. After reading the first couple of chapters I was hooked. This story made me laugh and more importantly kept me interested at a time when I had started losing interest in fanfiction. Overall I found this story to be great but found it weird that story continued after the Yule Ball. After having spent many chapters on the night of the Yule Ball I found the sudden change in pace weird. But to the authors credit I continued reading and remained interested in the story and would continue to read it. I feel this story has a lot of potential and can't wait for more.

    I liked the characters and found Harry to be funny and loved Dumbledore. I'd give it a 4/5 with potential for more.
