You've done it again. I can always expect just the right balance of puns with descriptive language, a flowing plotline and great characterizations. I could actually feel Harry blushing at the wolf's advances. The hot tub was a perfect prop as well. I was introduced to Japanese ofuros when I was first over there, but you Scandinavians are the true masters of that art. The entire setting was perfect for what each wanted to accomplish, and the soundtrack that ran through my head while reading added to the effect. One minor point that I missed before; Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee is generally regarded as the home of the blues, while New Orleans' Bourbon Street is the home to jazz. I have no idea why Salt Lake City has a basketball team called The Jazz. Anyway, this is another excellent effort. Thank you for a great read! Eric

I LOVE the title! The biggest music clue in the story. Papa's got a brand now bag.

Very nice, although not having all the insights into the musical references made it somewhat more opaque than I would have liked.

Ah, Torak, I'm so jealous. :P Not only is it funnier, more original and more creative than what I had in mind, you actually managed to get it in...grrr.

It was really nice to see what else Harry had inherited from his family. Many people give him as a residence, Grimmauld Place, which is fine by me, but I think it's nice for him to be somewhere that he could maybe find a bit more peace and familiarity from things that may be left with the the old homestead, such as photos of his extended family. The Magilectric engine for the Knight Train was very clever. I laughed reading about Creevey Duplex with its whopping three rooms. Soul Mansion was a very appropriate name for the homestead. And, unfortunately, I too have seen ice cubes in a hot tub when mine became unplugged during a storm and we went to get in and well .... ahhhhh!!! And no magic to warm it back up again either like Harry and Ginny would have. thanks for your stories!

OK, I love the magilectric motors and the fold-up railway. Why can't I have one like that? Environmentally it must be a Really Good Thing! Non-diegetic tones appearing in a fan fic is unexpected - but I wouldn't put it past you to have used the technique (is that the word I want?) frequently without telling us.

I've seen Death and the Death of Rats appear in HP fanfics, but this is the first HP story where I've seen The Luggage or at least a close relative make an appearance. However, what was truly remarkable and likely unique about this story was that it used "diegetic".
