Reviews For The Summer We Went Mental
Author's Response: Oh wow, Kiromenanz, thank you for this review. Your words touched *my* heart. I'm so pleased you found this story enjoyable, as I needed it to be realistic for those who have seen mental health difficulties first hand either in their own lives or in those of friends. I'm so glad you have found it inspiring. It was so terribly difficult for me to write! And yes, my novel is still going albeit very slowly. It's been a difficult year so I'm not at the point I wanted to be. Your words are encouraging! So thank you!!
"That was the worst example of guardianship I have ever seen," Dumbledore said sharply, picking up his newspaper.
"Well, Petunia's always been -" began Snape.
To Harry's amazement, Dumbledore hit Snape over the back of the head with the paper. "By you, you overgrown teenager."
"Boots on the table, really?" Dumbledore continued, exasperated. "You had best grow up before next summer. Harry needs a proper example."
it's absolutely beautiful xD
I also really loved Daisy and Stephen. They were perfect!
Author's Response: Thank you etherian! I am so stoked you liked the original characters. They are so hard to get people to like so I am glad you mentioned them. Cheers, Whitetail
I am immediately drawn in! What is going on with Harry and Snape? They seem to be getting along so how did that come about? What was in the Prophet? Why are they late getting to Hogwarts? Why are they taking the train instead of apparation or floo?
This first chapter makes me WANT to click the Next button, as it is supposed to! It's not filled with tons of backstory or head musing. The characters are doing something interesting and I want to find out more. I hardly ever see a compelling first chapter in fanfiction (which is too bad). Great job! Can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Wow, what a compliment. I'm really very flattered to hear the start is so compelling. I had no idea how to begin this one to be completely honest, so I am glad it is effective. Cheers, Whitetail
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
It's a very difficult and tricky thing, to live with depression and guilt and the aftermath of surviving abuse. Nevertheless, i feel that you handled the subject rather well without trivializing or romanticizing it at all. Bravo.
And again - another brilliant story. Best of luck with your original work - I've not doubt it will be great!
Author's Response: Wow, thanks Dream Painter! It's awesome to hear you are happy with the handling of the subject. It was a really hard story to get my head around, and after a while I had so many other stories I wanted to move on to, and writing grew harder. To know you've found it to your liking is really great to hear. Thanks so much for the luck - and my work is going quite well, so you know. :) Cheers, and hope you're having a good year, Whitetail.
Author's Response: I had. SO. MUCH. FUN. with this. Fantastic to know you had a lot of fun too! Haha, I loved writing this part. Thanks for sharing the laughs, Dream Painter!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you're happy with the outcome. This was an uber hard chapter to handle, so it's lovely to hear your opinions. Cheers!
I must ask, however: did you ever get your soul back after it got eaten?
Author's Response: My soul did return in time, thankfully. It took many cups of tea, and a lot of cookies, but it returned. ;)
