Tim, You're right. I was laughing, smiling, and enjoying the ride all the way through. (you sure didn't give us any time to stop and think!) But I get to your author notes ... and you're right. It's WAFF (warm and fuzzy fluff) which makes a good short story, but ...

However, what was particularly fun was having the whole thing from Hermione's point of view -- an older/calmer Hermione also.

I know you like to do larger-than-life heroic Harry, but I also think he was just a bit too powerful here. He needs a credible foe somewhere!

I thought Susan was a redhead also... Hmm, not sure what I base that on, it might be fanon.

The start of the story had a bit of a gem in it, though... where Hermione goes to Tracy, secure that she's got things all figured out... but then Tracy goes all Slytherin, and Hermione realizes that she may have just lost control of the situation. It can be fun, as well as humbling, to show a bright person coming to the realization that she isn't the only smart person in the world.

Thanks for sharing, it's a fun enjoyable read.

Amusing. Mind if I steal a few lines? Especially the whole 'Spells-in-made-up-language' thingy XD Wouldn't believe how stupid 'Denglish' sounds.

Anyway: True, it is too perfect. But still amusing. You got any of these rabbit fluff-balls left? I could use some inspiration for insanity.

Actually, Jeconis, I'm sorry, but I have to (respectfully) disagree with your analysis.

A lot of Authors tend to forget that while telling stories with a point is important, stories started as a way to entertain and give hope and dreams to people stuck around campfires with little to look forward to.

There's a reason why stories like 'Cinderella' or 'Tarzan' are classics.

Sometimes, it's nice to see someone say 'Stop. The madness ends here' and go about fixing it. It puts a smile on the face of the reader watching the hero do everything they've always wished.

The story made me laugh, smile, grin and cheer...
...Who care's if it's over the top. If there was a Harry Potter, why wouldn't he do it?

It was fun, with good points (speech to Queen owned). And that alone makes it a worthwhile story.

Sometimes people people forget stories are for fun too.

I'm glad you remembered

In spite of what some people would have you believe, there is actually a market for this sort of writing. It is not necessary for every story to have a rising action, a conflict, a climax, and a denoument for it to be an enjoyable read.

I, for one, quite enjoyed both Hope and Princess, and have no objections whatsoever to seeing more of the same, as much as you care to write.

Howard, the Grum

Dear Tim
I ,for one, wish you weren't abandoning this fic. I found it very funny, and enjoyed it very much.

It was very entertaining. Thank you. CD

the next time I find myself in teh UK (and I used to get there two or three times a year), I'm going to track you down and .... play you the recordings of my laughter at this piece. It was bloody brilliant! I do wish that you'd given us a wedding ceremony (why is it that you never do?) and a bit of the "happily ever after" (none of that either).... but oh, my .... what a great job of characterization, action and humor all tied into one.

Enjoyable fluff and happiness :)

Excellent story. I love reading your work, because you write so well. I know you hate people asking this, so I will ask this once and that's it. You've mentioned several longer stories (Gabrielle-Harry fairytale story, Harry-Lavender story, etc.), and I was wondering how the betaing was going and when we'd see them posted? Anyway, keep up the exquisite work and well done.

It's purest wish-fulfillment, escapist drivel.

That opener would usually be seen as a condemnation, but it just so happens that I *like* escapist drivel, it's one of the reasons I read fanfic in the first place. It's kinda like having a literary sweet-tooth.

I agree that it's not really worth continuing, so the euthanasia was entirely justified. But it was a heck of a lot of fun to read. Must've been a heck of a lot of fun to write, too.

Anytime you want to write more like this, I'll happily read them all.

I understand why you put a stop to it. However the sad fact is your rejects are better then more then half the fics out there. Thanks for this bit of fun.

Irritatingly perfect or not, this was a very fun read. I loved the humor... and the angry moments with the queen. I thank you very much for writing it.

Hey! There's nothing wrong with a little fluff once in a while, but yes, I can see why you staked this piece.

It was still an excellent read, though, for all it was missing, and I agree with others -- it should have ended with the wedding, and maybe with Tracey and Susan giving Hermione a little payback...

MadMax666 posted a comment on Wednesday 17th October 2007 3:06pm for Princess

Okay, so they're a bit too perfect...

Still, it is a fun story to read. And frankly, I prefer your version of how Harry defeated Voldemort, to the near-endless camping trip of Deathly Hallows. "So...the Order has rounded up and destroyed all the Horcruxes? Time to go and kill Tom Riddle!

Who knows...maybe one day you'll come back to this, throw in a bit of action, gratuitous sex, and violence, and drag it out of the abandoned column...

Hmmm. You're quite right in the lack of conflict/perfect characters criticism, but I must say its a wonderful little oneshot. Farcical and entertaining, with just enough surreal moments to keep interest without moving into the realms of the annoyingly unbelievable. A nice fic, but, as you said, probably best euthanized as is before it becomes too drawn out. I look forward to whatever you come out with next, be it oneshot, fic, random drabble, or some freakish hybrid of several of those.

Well yes I can see that is was a little 2 dimensional it was still a fun read that brought a smile to my face.

Lady_Hope posted a comment on Wednesday 17th October 2007 2:10pm for Princess

pretty good. some of it had me rolling my eyes in exasperation but i seem to find myself unable to really critisize your work! ;)

i realize that it probably wouldnt have gone far but i wish youd write the wedding at least. that would have been great!!!!

Daniel Hensley posted a comment on Wednesday 17th October 2007 1:49pm for Princess

LOL, I loved this story. There were parts that I was laughing so hard I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

Yes everyone is too perfect,
Yes it is sugary fluff,
but it still begs the question
What's wrong with a perfect sugary fluff occasionally?

I understand why you killed it but next time could you kill it after the Queen shows up unannounced at Hogwarts. I want to see the Headmistress's face!

*smacks Tim around the head for a bit*

I'm not going to try and change you mind about this, but I have to tell you that I've been grinning since shortly after the beginning. I was a little confused at first, with the POV and your disclaimer, but once that was settled, I was sucked into this bit of crack-fic.

Yes, I say "crack-fic", because reading this was like being on drugs.

*looks around*

*bites lip* when you get loopy from cold meds...yeah.

Anyway, LOVED IT. I really laughed out loud, had a grin on my face through most of it (Dobby's tale and Harry reaming the Queen out being the only times I wasn't smiling), and kept thinking "OMG, what's next?!"

Thanks for posting this, even if you don't think it's up to par with your other stories. I love the insanity that comes out of your brain, and I wish we could see more of it. No matter how unrealistic a story might be, it's always a fun read when I know you were really into writing it.
