Review #1, by ANightingaleInAGoldenCage Part 1

Here for CTF!

I lvoe this story! From Albus trying to make small talk and the shy main character makes it work all so well. The descriptions that flow between the sentences which is basically mostly telling what is going on are just enough to keep the story going, but not too less anyway to not grasp a handle on how she is as a character and how it all seems to work.
It makes perfect sense that they both could be sorted in the other's Houses and I love the fact that they manage to get some clarity of some sort about what the other is feeling and helping the other through with it as it is, even if its little and they don't talk too much about it.
And besides, ice cream is the best way to solve problems. I honestly thoguht theyd be getting it in the kitchens, but the fact that they'd be going to Hogsmeade out of the days is a really nice touch too, because I feel like that emphatises their similarities more and why they could easily be in the House of the other.
That being said, this entire story just works in its simplicity, while it isn't too simple as it is when it comes to thoguht out points and background stuff. Very well done!

28th April 2017:
Hello lovely! Iím here for CTF!

SO I knew I'd love this because I'm obsessed with Albus Potter/OC and most importantly, I love the shy nerdy girls that aren't in ravenclaw. Like the more shy, the better. And here's Annabelle in her Gobstones Club being a total dork AND an athletic seeker. Win-win. Dream come true!

I know so many people like that. UM excuse me, I'm trying to be shy. It's sweet of him to check in on Lily too. He's an angel baby. And her trying (and kinda failing) with the conversation is adorable.

NO! NOT HARRY! My poor babe. Although that's what happens when you have a job like that. Also her brandishing her wand is 10/10 cute.

So they both have the dad being auror thing in common. I wonder if Harry knew her dad. Itís nice that they can both bond over their low key existential crises over their parents mortality and I canít imagine how difficult it would be for Albus facing the fact that given Harryís past I think a lot of people would believe that Harry was literally immortal. I mean he died and came back at the end of Deathly Hallows and he was hit by the killing curse as a kid. I think it would take a lot to finish off the old man.

That is a sad story. And who doesn't need ice cream.

Slow thumb circles will be enough for me to count it as true love, regardless of what you decide to title this story.

CUTE CUTE CUTE

Review #3, by Chazzie Part 1

2nd March 2014:
Hey there!
This is actually rather adorable, especially as they seem to belong in opposite houses. The fact that Claudia is so socially awkward seems to make the story a lot more realistic, and Albus is therefor a lot more easy to connect to. In some fanfics he can be a little bit horrible to people, which just seems wrong for me. But anyway, it was lovely!
Chazzie (Review 1/10 for the Slytherin/Gryffindor Blackout)

PS I love the title!

Author's Response: Hi Chazzie!

Aw well, I like to think it's adorable as well! And yes, the houses thing does come up since their half and half sort of. And yes, Claudia isn't the best in social situations, is she? Ooh, I love Albus, so I'm glad you liked him.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, although I can't take credit for the title - the banner inspired me, title and all!

Lo:)

Review #5, by MrsKatieGrint Part 1

Hey there!

So, no shame, I was totally creeping on your page, and stumbled upon this story. First, I love Rick Riordan, so I've definitely been checking up on that challenge, to see all the great stories!

I think you did superb with your OC, she's so cute.
Might I add, I love the fact that Albus is in Ravenclaw! This was such a nice twist to your story, that I positively adored!
Anywho, I think also that its really great you didn't make Albus the cliche womanizer, I think it was cute how sweet he was to Claudia. Seriously adorable, in fact.

I can't wait to see where their ice cream adventure takes them next, because seriously, this story was adorable in everyway.(:

Cheers! Katie(:

Author's Response: Hi!

And absolutely no shame! That's how I found a lot of my favourite stories ;)

And you totally should check out the other stories! I bet they're all fantastic (not that I've had time to read them all... NaNo *she growls*)

And yay! I'm so glad you like Claudia! And yay again for Ravenclaw Albus! I just always pictured him as a Ravenclaw in this context because of how it ends, but I'm glad I twisted! ;)

And cliche womanizer? I always saw James as the womanizer and Albus more laid-back, kind of like Ginny (James is popular with the opposite gender) and Harry (I think he's kissed two girls in his life?).

And I know, how sweet is he? I wanted to make them this completely adorable couple, so I'm glad I succeeded!

And yay for adorableness, and, although I won't be going into detail on the ice cream fiasco, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with where I take them next. ;)

Thanks so much!
Lo:)

Review #6, by AlexFan Part 1

10th November 2013:
*pterodactyl screeching* Oh my goodness that was so good! I know I should probably be more professional about this because it's a review on an entry but I don't care because I'm just in love with this!

I love your characters and their personalities so far. Claudia and Albus are total opposites as people yet I can see them being together because it makes sense and it would probably work. That's something that's difficult to achieve because sometimes I don't even know how two people can be together in some fanfictions.

I love how sweet Claudia is and how nice Albus is and friendly. And my fondness for him only grew when he suggested ice cream because ice-cream is the solution to all problems!

Now to get down to your use of the quote. The way that you used the quote was exactly the way that I had pictured it being used. And I look forward to see how well Claudia takes that rule as the story goes on. You can really tell that the advice that her mum gave her is really stuck on her head by the way that Claudia almost cautious in her interaction with Albus.

Oh, and on a side note about the banner, I love that banner so much, I was trying to come up with a story to go with it but nothing was coming. But the plot that you've come up with is so great and just yeah, I really like your banner.

Okay, I'll go now.
(PS I will be adding this to my favourites and reviewing future chapters).

Author's Response: Ohmigosh yay for pterodactyl screeching!
I'm just going to come out and say it, I wanted to on your story, but I had to remain 'professional' because it had been a requested review. It took me about four tries to finally get it professionalistic, but now I wish I hadn't. In short, screeching at yours too because it's so good!

Okay, so, yay! You liked it! And yay you think they'll be good together. *Flail* And yes, ice cream really is the solution to all problems!!!

And yay! I'm glad you pictured the quote use as I used it! Good to see that we're on the same wavelength. And yay for the banner! It was actually a UFG over at TDA, and I loved it so much I just had to have it, but I couldn't come up with a story. Then I was mulling over it and then I got the quote from your challenge and BAM! *Magic ensued* But in all seriousness, all banner creds go to the wonderful inspector. @ TDA. *Amazing* artist right there!

And no! You're leaving? *Sad face* :(
But yay, you'll be back and FAVOURITING???

*Flail followed by faint*

Ohmigosh, mini heart attack there! Thank you so so so so so so so so so much for this and I'm glad you liked it and it lived up to your challenge expectations!

Lo :)

P.S. *Velociraptor screeching*

Review #7, by Albus Potter's Woman Part 1

27th October 2013:
Yay I love Al/OCs because Albie is my favourite Next Gen character to walk the earth. HOWEVER your bit of foreshadowing in the title sets me a tiny bit on edge. HOWEVER I am curious to where this story is going & like how you've created your characters so far. I even like semi-Ravenclaw semi-Gryffindor Al even though Slytherin Al tops it for me so kudos to you. I think you just need a gorgeous banner & you're set :D
~Albus Potter's Woman
(sorry if I sound like a tiny bit of a nutter with my HOWEVERs, I am in a weird mood. Looking forward to an update!)

Author's Response: Yay! I'm glad you like Albus/OCs!!!

HOWEVER [and now I'm a nutter too, so it's okay! :)] you should also look at the summary. "Dear Annabelle..." Think about who that could be. *Little author hint that kind of tells you what to look for*

And yay! You like semi-Ravenclaw semi-Gryffindor Al! And you like Slytherin Al? That's super cool! I don't really have a preference for what house Al is in. Do you mind telling me why that particular house for Albus interest you? :)

And as for a gorgeous banner, I'm working on it! (An Up For Grabs banner actually prompted this fic, so hopefully I can get that soon)

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!

Lo :)

P.S. I'm sorry, but until Nov is over (I'm participating in NaNo) no more updates :(
