Well I've never been a fan of preppy little Harry so it will come as no surprise to you that I liked this witty send up... full of pimples and sex and hormones, altogether more realistic I think!

'Hormonie' great name (though perhaps in danger of irritating the feminist mob) but she does get her own back with her put downs... i.e. 'grotesque little man'

The words 'snog' and 'thunderpants' made eloquent cameos ;-)

If this is 'Part I', which suggests you're writing more, then I admire you as I think I would find it challenging to write at length about people 'getting stoned' ;-)

Great ideas! Write on, Nikki ;-)


NB why a snake? Also didn't get the 'parcel tongue' bit (?)

Hi Mikesparks,

HeHeHe, very funny, I really enjoyed this. Some of the lines were great. I particularly liked 'HORMONIE.' I'll always think of this name now, every time I see one of the films.

I have often wondered if the guy who plays Ron in the films is either: a) an extraordinarily bad actor, or b) fond of a quick toke before the cameras start rolling. Now, maybe, I have the answer.

Looking forward to part 2!

Hi Mike, I like it, a well done take on HP and his chums. I've not read the book or seen the film, so don't know how closely your mocking it, but I enjoyed it anyway.

All the best,

I do happen to like the HP books and films but can really appreciate this send up. I thought the script was funny (especially HORMONIE that made me laugh out loud) and am also looking forward to reading Part Two.
