Two reviewers on "restrictedsection.org." One was an H/Hr shipper who thought it would be the best H/Hr smut ever if it didn't have all this moaning about Ron. (Oh, yeah, and he felt I'd anatomically misplaced the hymen. It's been almost thirty years since I've met one, so for all I know, they're right. {Feel free to check and let me kno-- Ouch! Stop! Kidding! Don't hurt me!})

The other was an R/Hr shipper who thought there was no way Harry would betray his friend that way, and Ron got over it too fast.

Honestly, I'm cool with it. They were both very thoughtful reviews from folks who had clearly read the story and thought about it. As Spider Robinson says, "Some people like Pistacchio Ripple!" That's why there's more than one kind of fic.

Firstly: I'm going to ignore that hymen comment, I think! :D

Well, those two are ok I guess - at least the second person tried to be constructive! As for the first, well...it's like you say: if it were Ron and Hermione, it wouldn't be a story. Same goes for HHr shippers. Why on earth would they want to read it if it were HHr? There'd be no plot! *is puzzled*
Ah well, at least they bothered to review, I spose...

I was just worried that you got flamers, or dressed-up flamers. Which are rather amusing to read when I'm skimming through reviews of a fic, yes (what can you do but laugh at them, really?) but they get me really annoyed when I'm in a less tolerable mood. I mean, really, why bother reviewing at all if you're not going to say anything good or give the author anything useful about it? Grr... Ok, I'm done with the rant now...:D

I just don't feel like I have time to waste on being offended by people not liking my stories. I think you hit the nail on the head with the H/Hr guy -- why do I think everyone who gives me a bad review is a guy? -- but it's all good. At least he got some fairly hot H/Hr sex out of the experience!

And the ones who just flame? Them, I really don't care about.

i want you to picture molly with a large skillet, coming to whop you one in the back of the head, mister! i can't beLIEVE you justsaid that!!!!

(and i am a little confused about how you invisage the placement myself, as i mentioned to you previously.... but then maybe they are many and varied as most bodily parts are)

So I suppose asking for pictures would have been out of line, huh?

And, er, my recollection, dim though it be after twenty-seven or so years, was as a barrier partway in. sort of. I plead slightly different evolutionary patterns in the Potterverse! Yeah, that's the ticket!

And, hell, I thought you were saying that it wasn't that severe being broken, not that it was anatomically misplaced! Crap, I could have fixed it back then!
