Bio:
I have read (slash) fanfiction for nearly three years and generally and had generally stuck to the Drarry ship, but I am slowly expanding my horizons.

I probably won't review too much. It's difficult for me to review on stories I really love (especially if they're long and multi-chaptered). It all depends. Fics on the TQP, because of their quality control efforts, will also tend to be better and have less faults to mention. (I do review positively, but when I'm blindly in love with a piece, I'm speechless.)

If someone asked me to Beta I would be thrilled. I could spell-check, do basic grammar fixes, repair awkward sentence structure (despite the run-ons I use in this bio), and mention plot holes or OOC-ness (of their own characterizations, not in comparison to the books). But I don' writes gud, so any super-great writers would probably want someone else.

Cute story! Harry's cluelessness was great to watch and Ron's thoughts about him were sweet.

This seems great, and Ron and Harry were very cute.
Although this is a sad note, this reminds me of how two advocates of gay marriage who eventually got married divorced (or broke up? I hardly remember). : The problems were unrelated to the marriage and campaign, though. It's just sad.

I misinterpreted the summary and thought this was going to be much more depressing than it was. I'm really glad for that. I suppose my brain ignored syntax rules and logic, leading me to think that Seamus was dead and only Dean could hear his voice, or he was missing (most likely kidnapped and tortured) and held a mental connection to Dean. Yeah. Brains rule.

This was a sweet story. I always love when people talk about usually-annoying traits, like being a chatter-box, in a loving way.

I'll be looking through your other stories for a sequel! This one has a slightly bitter ending, although that last line instills hope.

I'm not sure if I'm rating it objectively or not, that perhaps I'm giving it a six because of the bitter feeling left over and not because the story/plot/etc was bad. Reading through this was painful because of Ron's situation (and perhaps the way he forms his thoughts).

I'm not sure if this fully expresses my feelings on the piece or not. I know I'm not being objective, though.

This is really cool. I especially like fics where Ron has a special ability since he's usually portrayed as "the average man." The fact that this may become a DracoRon romance is intriguing, considering the coldness Draco feels for, without further investigation, everyone.

I'm definitely reading on.

Date: 03/30/2013 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3

And the plot thickens! I'm convinced so far that Ron is for real, although perhaps he is a bit insane. Harry's behavior so far makes him appear just as insane as he claims Ron is.

Gosh, I glanced a bit at the other reviews, for chapters ahead and I'm really unsure about what's happening next! (I looked away quick enough to not know what's going on, but perhaps have a hint).

I've seen this sort of plot before, but you wrote it well.

Hermione's second to last line was hilarious. You would get a 10 just for that.

Huh. This fic is leaving me sort of dumbstruck. I'm not sure how to feel about it. I assumed that polyamourous relationships would have more drama. I dunno.

Reviewer: Esh10 Signed starstarstar
Date: 04/03/2013 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4: Private Talks

Um. That worked? And that quickly? There's going to have to be some angst somewhere... and hopefully not just Ginny-caused. I'm not sure where this is going. I wasn't expecting this at all. xD
6- because I didn't hate it, but am left confused and thinking how weird the situation is. Also, dialogue and descriptions are clinical and lack a natural flow at times.

Date: 04/03/2013 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3: Erotic Dreams

Oh, gosh. I generally don't like these types of romance situations. The few I've read (that have sad endings, or bittersweet ones) leave me emotionally off. (What is Sirius hoping for? I hope nothing like the dream.) But this fic seems to be too interesting to pass up. Especially since Sirius will be a very dynamic character.

10 because I really liked it and it's well-written. Your characters are witty. (My reviews are bad.)

When Draco is about to say "Goodbye" in Russian, it would be better transliterated like "Da svi-" or "Da svee-."

Everything HarryRon was sweet. But it really was cruel how Ron sort of 'left her at the alter.' I think she only slapped him because she thought he and Harry had been going behind her back. It makes me hope that perhaps there was some HermioneGinny action, to even the score and so Hermione wasn't rendered all alone.
