Ok, ok, now I know what you're probably thinking... I am aware that I still owe you those other 3 reviews yet, and I promise you that I AM working on those! I have just been crazy busy lately, and in retrospect, I probly should've been reading one of those other stories right now... But when I saw that I had a shot at being the 1st person to review this new chapter of 'Snips -n- Snails' for you, I couldn't help myself, lol!! I just LOOOVVVE this story SO MUCH and the suspense was killing me, so I just had to read it before the rest, lol! ...Well anyhow, I think we've heard enough of my making up excuses for right now, lets get back to what I am really here for: your review! By the way, it's like after 8:00 in the morning here right now, and I have been up ALL night long, so I'm sorry if I am rambling too much, haha!!) ^_^'
As always, your attention to detail and use of description was amazing straight from the opening paragraph, and all the way through to the end! How do you do it? I found your characterizations of everyone to be spot-on too, and the chapter itself has really good timing, (if that even makes sense). Like, everything was paced well, and nothing seems to be happening too fast... I also loved that you included Neville as the Herbology teacher, and I really liked your new Transfiguration teacher as well.
It's great to see that Teddy is making new friends from other houses as well, but I really can't wait for Victoire to start Hogwarts too so that Teddy doesn't have to be away from her anymore! In a way, Teddy's new friends kinda remind me of the Marauders, lol! (Braden=Peter, Alastor=Remus, Bradley=Sirius, which would make Teddy kind of like the James of the group, lol! But Emma reminds me of both Lily & Hermione.) *shrugs* I don't know if that was intentional on your part or not, but I for one thought that it was a very cool parallel between the 2 different generations, so nicely done!! I wish I could write like you, I really do, lol! *sigh*
AGH! A cliff-hanger ending!?! Oh geeze, now I am really wondering where you will choose to go with this story next, lol! At this point, I can really see it going just about anywhere, which is a good thing! You really do like to keep us guessing, don't you? Hehehe, please give us an update soon!! Oh, and I promise to get to your other reviews just as soon as possible my dear! Thank you for being so patient with me!! I love you and I am in love with your writing! Keep up the magnificent work Malissa!! =)
