Simon had the look of a pureblood, but that sort of phrase was normally only heard from the mouths of muggleborns, or academics. Ah! I like that little detail you added in, 'cause I always love magic-blood details. It's such a big division in wizarding culture so I like when there's subtle differences in stuff like dialogue.
Omgah ahaha, THE QUILL. "Never understands that I like to have a go at the bureaucracy sometimes.” Deffo love magic 8D
OMG HIS LAST NAME IS BURKE XD AHAHA HOW DID I MISREAD THAT. You must've thought I was so silly. Heh, Elena, when is cafeteria food ever good? You'd think with magic, they'd learn to master cooking spells by now or something. Snerk, Twiddling, what a name. Someone should tell Twiddling that rudely calling others rude is rude -nods-
Wizards and their extraneous e's, lolol. It seems Elena's been getting more comfortable around the Ministry then? She's been a little bit passive, though understandably, but I'd love to see more of her helping them out, to keep things on the situation at hand and make Elena seem a little more useful. Hee, Simon and cor hate reading. Such aurors. I can imagine Harry and Ron complaining of that too when they gets up there 8D
Author's Response: Hi!
I'm glad you liked that bit :) I feel like magical blood heritage (or whatever you call it) is often so hyped up. I thought it would be interesting to see the perspective of someone like Elena, who it doesn't really matter to all that much. She is neither a victim of discrimination because she is not pure blood, nor is she the one discriminating against non pure bloods.
Haha, yes, Simon's last name is Burke. I never said it out right, so it's fine that you missed it. And really, Elena has too high expectations for cafeteria food. You would think food would taste better, but I feel like that it takes time even to use magic to make food. So faster food = cheaper = grosser. Haha, yes, if only.
Haha, so funny story. Some of those book names are canon, but when I was looking up book titles, I realized that there really are tons of extra letters thrown on to words. It's a bit funny actually, cause that sort of spelling with extra letters to make things seem like magic isn't normally JKR's style, haha. Anyhow. Yes, Elena will be more useful. Or she'll try to be. Right now, she's a bit afraid to get in the way, and Corinne especially isn't exactly encouraging her to step up to the challenge xD Also, I know, haha. Really, I feel like Aurors are not ones for book learning. That would be a great scene--Harry and Ron making some comments about how they aren't in school anymore. But, books -can- be helpful, and so they have to read. :D
Thanks for the review! And thanks for putting up with my disjointed review replies xD
