Dumbledore's Army

Wow! I guess this is Pre-OotP, since Mrs. Figgs seems to be a witch, rather than a squib. Somehow, I'd never thought of the possibility that Mrs. Figg might have lost close family to Voldemort and be bitter about it. Intense!

Okay this is hmmm good. I mean you're a good writer but you didn't write Fig well. Fig respects Dumbledore and she's not the type to intimidate him. Come on Fig? It's not likely. It's possible but not probable. I mean I see where you're coming from but like I said it's possible but not probable. Also Arabella is a squib. It's said in the books and what's in the books is all the facts. If Arabella could use magic even if it wasn't with a wand she would have gladly have helped Harry out when the dementors attacked. I mean the characters and the facts really need work I'm not lying, but you really have talent in writing.

Yes, dear, this story was written before Book 5 was published I'm sure there are hundreds of Mrs. Figg stories that are now obsolete. I suppose it's now considered "alternate universe", but I'm thinking on how to work the Mrs. Figg that I've invented into my next story, and still remain canon....I've got an idea....

I just thought I'd let you know, in "The Order of the Phoenix'" Mrs. Figg states "I'm a Squib, as Mundungus well knows...."

I have to say, I like Mrs Figg this way. She reminds me a good deal of my mother- especially with the lemonbalm. <sniff> My mom really likes lemonbalm...
<sniff> Maybe I should check up and see how she's doing...

Very good ideas. Loved the idea that certain types of ancient magic that can't be detected... good stuff. Mrs. Figg will undoubtedly appear in the next book, and I echo the sentiments of the review which talks about her response to Sirius etc. Can't wait... please write more before it comes out and gets all AU...

Interesting past of Mrs. Figg. I like this story a lot as well as your other one. It's very good and seems like a perfect background, as another reviewer said, for her. She seems like one of those people who lost a loved one or more to Voldemort and is now taking care of Harry, as he did too. Keep writing.

I just love how this story just sounds...TRUE. A perfectly logical "past" for Mrs. Figg.

Wow. What a prequel. Pity Dumbledore did not know how horrid the Dursleys are at this stage. Better to have given Harry to Mrs Figg. Full stop.

Interesting...I like the set up, the way she's not doing it out of gratitude, or a past friendship with the potters as is often used as a reason. I also like the fact that Dumbledore is such a compelling, powerful person. He only has to ask and people do. That often seems to be lost behind the chocolate frogs in fanfic. Very enjoyable!

I wonder how Mrs. Figg will react to the TRUTH about Sirius Black? And if she's part of "The Old Crowd" along with Remus, that would make for one helluva Mrs. Figg story.

This is my odd way of requesting more about Mrs. Figg. I like your portrait of her.

Hurray, another great Mrs. Figg story! I love how you've interwoven what happened to her with what we know of post-Voldemort wizard events. The part about her rift with her daughter really wrenched my heart :(

I also loved the descriptions of the plants. My favorite detail, though, is the one about Mrs. Figg's daughter (and Arabella herself?) being Slytherins, yet not in league with Voldemort. Very, very cool!

First of all, I like the way you tie elements of canon to her. It's interesting that she thinks that Sirius killed her son-in-law and grandson. I also like the fact that she's a Slytherin and not evil. The ultimate strength is to have denied Voldemort and still be alive. You have a lot going on in a short story!

Finally, this seems very insignificant unless you need reading glasses, but I'm happy you use a big font! :)

This is an interesting idea, especially making Mrs. Figg a Slytherin - nicely done!

The Sugar Quill was created by Zsenya and Arabella. For questions, please send us an Owl!
