Reviews For Unexpected Gifts
Sorry , couldn't resist... Just read FangsFawn's classic 'In Care Of'
on ffnet. Superb. Wept happily.
Please take up this cat- theme again some time, if you'd like to. I would gladly read it - adore animal-SS or HP.
Ps. Val´ance = courage, bravery.
Valance = bed curtain or fabric
over a window to
screen the curtain fittings.

Best wishes to you and yours for a
and please stay safe in these terrible
Thank you so much for writing.
Thanks for reviewing! I wanted to write more, but then ran out of time.
I think I knew it was valance, but writing at 3am will mess with your mind. Thanks for pointing it out!
For example, lines like this:
Potter flinched. "Magic isn't real, sir."
Severus arched an eyebrow. "I do believe you were a cat when you arrived."
Muah ha! Love ya Snape. We need more versions like this. It's like the character has come alive. I could see Snape and Harry getting along splendidly. You should consider doing sequels.
I was a little confused when I first read it - I did not pick up that this was preHogwarts at first and that Harry was eight or nine. If you ever decide to go back and edit I think that could be clearer.
I really liked how the beginning and end repeated themselves. Lovely story to read. I enjoyed it. Thank you for writing and posting your mess!
Just FYI, I edited your formatting for you so that it is easier to read. :)
Author's Response: I wanted to write more cat!Harry, but I ran out of time so had to rush. :( the holidays and life made it difficult to find time.
And Petunia is "charming" as ever.
The only thing I didn't like was Snape's misogynist insults. I know he's not likely to be better behaved than Molly Weasley, but ... I don't know, it makes me a bit uncomfortable.
