I'm currently cooking, so I have no time to read your wonderful fic again :D But you already know how much I love it and that it's the most awesome crack EVER. *hugs*
Are you making me brownies?????

You have been effusive in your love, and it was the best support and encouragement ever. Thank you, love, for everything!

(and MOAR hugs)
I don't know if it's just me, but I can't seem to submit my votes no matter how many times I try.
There does seem to be some problem. We are working on it. Apologies for this.
Wow! This was really unique. I really liked it! :)
Thank you! I've never gone with something non-angsty before, but I'm glad I did...pure silliness is a lot more fun than I would have imagined. :D I'm glad you liked it!
Fantastic idea, putting them in a circus! I loved this, really did. Off to re-read it now, as I'm sure I missed some what with being too busy sniggering... Flexible!Draco, my new favourite thing. Thanks for that, lovely!
I live to make you happy...I really do. *hugs till you make me stop*

I honestly thought of you when I was writing how flexible they were; I don't know why. Also when Charlie was sewing on sequins. See the effect you have on me?

I'm so happy you like it! I snorted most of the time I was writing it and kept annoyingly pinging Anne with bits of dialogue :P Love you!
Charlie and Lucius forevah! <3 I need to write them their own fic...with rhinestones and maybe a mechanical bull.

I'm really glad you liked it! Thanks!
Oh man! I knew I liked this idea from the start but to see this as a finished product= AWESOME!

Right on! I totally love how you embraced a bit of Scooby Doo here. Yay! Nice work of the prompt!
Thank you!! *g* I know what a whacked idea it seemed to be (and is) but all of you on AU were so supportive that it really encouraged me to write it.

Harry and Velma are glasses-challenged...I feel it really brings them together :D
I love this! I imagine shaggy and scooby near the end running off for molly's cooking!!
*laughs* Me too! Molly would love them and want to fatten them both up with some good ol' home cooking!

Thank you so much!
I do love me some circus fic! Lovely to see how you put all the canon characters in this; I laughed at some of your characters' names, and Harry being shot out of a cannon was priceless. The plot was adorable, with Ginny leaving a 'trail' of clues, and that last scene where Harry explains it all was so Agatha Christie. Just a great fic that I really enjoyed reading more than once! Go TEAM AU!
Whoooo! We rawk!!!

I couldn't have pulled this off without you! *huge hugs* I remember getting the idea, laughing at it and discarding it, but then, whenever I had an odd moment, things came to me. And pretty soon I was writing dialogue on sticky notes at work, then giggling over it before falling asleep, so I knew it had to be written.

I tried not to demonize Ginny...heck, *I* love Harry! I understand her feelings and love for circus food. She's my girl.

Thanks hon!!!!!
This was great and so funny! Harry Potter and madcap comedy and horny carny folk!
Thank you so much! I had a great time writing it, envisioning the Goatee'd Lady, Filch and his numerical challenges, and Charlie in his NWS outfit. :D


Win, win, win, win. I have never ever encountered a cross between some sort of crazed enid blyton and harry potter. Amazing, nuff said!
*grins hugely* Thank you! I've never written total crack before but it was a lot of fun to envision. I'm very glad you liked it!

re: The Magical Mystery Tour

What a fascinating AU premise! I loved the many details, right down to the Super Glue. You cast the canon/fanon characters wonderfully in their suitable AU roles. The Marvelous Malfoys were just perfect :-). I will admit that even for a crack-fic I found the mystery plot a tad preditable: I would have wished it had not been Ginny, after all, when all evidence was so obviously pointing towards her. But this is minor quibbling - great job at a brilliant AU setting.

Re: The Magical Mystery Tour

The mystery was totally predictable, I admit; I had planned something huge and mysterious, but I wound up really reaching for plausible plot points. Although, Voldemort as an evil clown prince would have been fun. :D

Thank you so much for your comments! I'm glad you found the characters suited to their roles and liked the Malfoys. I wish I could have worked in Lucius in drag, but maybe next time!
That was a fun and silly light-hearted mystery! Very cute! ;)
Thanks hon! I had a good time writing it, and envisioning the silliness. I'm usually the angsty, weeping sort but this was a fun change of pace for me. I'm glad you liked it!

The Magical Mystery Tour

I enjoyed the narrative voice a lot - almost like a circus announcement. You managed to transfer the characters so wonderfully into this universe.

Thank you for such a funny read!

Re: The Magical Mystery Tour

Thank you so much! I rarely write anything funny, or overtly funny, rather, so I'm glad you liked it. The idea came and stuck and wouldn't let go. :)
I had to read this in several parts because I was afraid it would be over too soon. I laughed so hard that I had tears in my eyes. A really unique fic with so many funny things and great cliches that quoting would be impossible.

When I was finished I read your user profile and laughed again. If even half of the description is true I would love to meet you some day. We could do some serious people watching and commenting... ;)
*I* had to re-read my user profile to see if half of it was true! :D It actually is true, scarily enough, and I love new friends, so...*bats lashes* I hate people in general, but love watching them. And mocking. And then rinsing and repeating. *nods*

I'm really glad you laughed and enjoyed the story! I giggled while writing it, while others in my immediate vicinity watched in fear and trepidation. Apparently my laughter is evil. Who knew?

I had a lot of fun writing this, cause I'm usually all about teh angst , but it was one of those ideas that get in your head and refuse to leave. (I think it's because my brain provides snacks to visitors...)

I babble, but thank you so much for reading and reviewing this! Comments like this make my day!
So very cracktastic and amusing. I loved Ginny getting fat and Charlie's antics. Great job!
Thank you! I'm really glad now that I went for crack, cause it was so much fun to write!

I sympathize with both Ginny's need for frosting and her need for Harry, though. And I have a bad feeling that I barely escaped fat camp myself. :P

I'm really glad you like it!
