Congratulations for finishing another fine story. I am always glad to hear from you so whenever time and inclination permit I would love to read some more. Thanks for writing. W.

I really liked how consistent Remus was, and the concept of embracing their wolf to learn voluntary turning really resonated with me. I may very well have to Yoink that (with credit, of course).

My only confusion is with Daisy, whose character seemed to be rather unpredictable in her mannerisms before somehow settling down rather drastically in what seemed like a very short time. Perhaps I just misunderstood the timeline.

Overall this was quite a lot of fun, with a very nice finish to leave a content smile at the finish (?).

Thanks for sharing your time and talent, it's really nice to read something new from you!

Daisy is my Liza Doolittle character - when she first appears she's a smart but uneducated (illiterate) teen who was raised by wolves.  She has a good ear, so she learns how to talk to fit in, but she still uses words by ear - so it's fairy moans rather than pheremones, semester rather than trimester.  There's all sorts of gaps here, because I'm trying to write a short piece, not a 300k word monster.

As always, I greatly enjoyed this story. On paper the outline probably wouldn't sound half as good as the story actually is, but your characters, and the depth of motivations, settings, and your writing style in general make it an absolute pleasure. Thank you for taking the time to write and publish it - I only wish it were longer!

Kokopelli replied:

If I were getting paid for this, it would be longer, and more detailed.  This is a hobby that fits into the crevices in my life when I have time.  Thanks for reading.

I really enjoyed this story. I liked the strong Remus. I liked the wolves, especially Maud and Daisy. This was a lot of fun to read, even though I had to re-read last chapter to get it straight (tricksy writer!). I think this was a good ending spot, but on the other hand I would enjoy more. Thanks a lot for posting!

A nice ending... I think I am most interested in how Daisy transforms from a heavily accented speaker to the gracefully lady of the last few paragraphs. And my mat says she would only be 30 at that point.

I really like your Alice a lot. Very strong.

But that sorting is where you lost me. I am a strong believer in choice when it comes to sorting and you have Harry sorted over his objections!?!?

Hmm, no Snape? I may need to search back through the chapters to see if I missed something there.

Daisy is my Liza Doolittle - she's an illiterate hillbilly when she first appears, but she wants to fit in, so she does so by ear (and learns to read).  She's still using words by ear - fairy moans for pheremones, semester for trimester.

I like Alice too, but I've always like to write strong female characters.

As to the sorting, Harry wasn't as desparate in this storting it was more  "Hufflepuff, but I wanted to stay with Neville!"  The Hat was sorting for the benefit of Hogwarts, which needed the BWL to reinforce Hufflepuff, the neglected house.

Very nice round-up and ending. That last scene with Daisy and Hermione was priceless and I daresay Neville and Harry may already have their future ladies picked out (I get the impression that Daisy generally gets her way - it's been called a "whim of iron" in other circles).

This was a most enjoyable story and I very much appreciate that you continue to write most enjoyable fan fiction.

Kokopelli replied:


That scene is a bonus - and not part of the original arc, but I can see Daisy looking into the social development of her favorite nephews.  Can you imagine the cool factor of having a somewhat crazy aunt who's a werewolf who wrestles Dementors and walks away victorious?

Would have loved to see what happens after 4th year but I see why you had to finish as you did. BUT, If you change your mind, How will 5th-7th year go?

Kokopelli replied:

Not going there - the story is done.

What a delightful tale. Thanks for sharing it with us! I've always appreciated your turns of phrase, unique settings, and idealized character behavior; it's all very slick and sublime. Again, thank you.

Thanks for your kind words.
