This was totally awesome!!!! I was literally laughing out loud many, many times during this story. Of course I didn't realize right away what was wrong with him. This story is awesome, I'm going to recommend a couple of my friends read it!

LoL, I love this story. It's so funny and believable. Good work!

Reviewid: 100962Chapter: 1 WAY TO GO! That was hysterical. I swear, I won't be able to stop laughing for the rest of the day. I'm just sitting here giggling. I loved it! It fits so perfectly. Oh, *dear*, just imagine poor Moody as that teenager, his wand in his back pocket, tripping, and then..... *laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs* I'll never be able to read Moody's scenes in canon again without exploding into sniggers.

This is AWESOME. I'm laughing hysterically right now (Note: do not laugh while eating crackers. That hurt.) I love the ending line, and the references to Moody's DADA prof.
I say again. This is awesome.

Aw, poor Al! *stifling laughter* And THAT'S why he always wears a huge, billowy cloak!

[“If you’re that good an Auror, you should be able to avoid hexes,” said Poppy acerbically.] Spoken like the true, no nonsence woman Poppy is.

Terriffic missing moment! Very funny and it's the little touches that make this believable, like Moody grumbling about getting advice from a man with a flowerpot attached to his head. A wonderfully fun read.

What a fun piece to read. You made me smile. I can just picture the cantankerous Alastor Moody as a rebellious teen pulling a stupid stunt like putting his wand where it shouldn’t be and growing up to rue the day he stuck it there.

I like how you portrayed Poppy. She’s very believable and has the gift of good rapport with young people.

Hilarious. Although in my mind I see Moody as being much older than Madam Pomfrey, b/c he was recalled from retirement, and that to me means he's at least 70 or more. Whereas Poppy, I see her as 40-ish or so. But no matter, I did think Moody must have lost a buttock doing smthg stupid, and your take on a teenage Alastor is really quite funny.

Great idea - but did flared jeans exist in the early sixties?

Reviewer: YolandaDate: 2003-09-15

This was so clever and funny. I can just hear mothers all over wizardom telling their children not to stick their wands in their pockets!! I like the idea of Moody being surly and tough-acting as a boy, and that his mother is just as tough as he is. As the mother of a boy, I can tell you from experience that you have to be as tough as they are. I'm still laughing. Thanks!

I can't decide what made me laugh the most. It's a toss up between "Not everybody wants to be an Auror!" or young Al complaining about his paranoid DADA teacher "ranting about being vigilant." Very, very funny stuff!

Just a minor quibble from somebody who's nearly old enough to remember. I think the early 60's were a bit too soon for flared jeans - that was more a stovepipe pants type of era. Flares made their ghastly appearance around 1966ish. But, maybe young Al's so cool, that he's ahead of the fashion. :)

I've been trying to figure out what makes this story so snort-your-tea-all-over-your-keyboard funny, since we've got an injured child, an anxious mum, and a baffled doctor here. Maybe it's that the title harks back to one of the funniest lines in OotP. Maybe it's the deftness with which you've drawn the characters--the young nurse and the embarrassed boy whose future careers we know...Mrs. Moody's spot-on mix of worry and fury...and the impossibility of holding on to your dignity when you are a teenage boy with a hovering mother and half a behind. Or maybe it was young Alastor's discovery that there was something cool about a missing buttock after all. Whatever it is, "Better Wizards than You" is a treat I'm glad to see at the Quill.

Merlin, that was amazing. I loved the humor- missing buttock, haha!!! Great use of the quote from OotP, this is hilarious! I love how you placed Poppy in the story as well, and I do love your characteristics of Al and Poppy when they were teens. Write more, and congrats on being accepted at the Sugar Quill! ^_^

Great story! I really enjoyed the characters. I also liked how you had him learning his "Constant Vigilance" stuff from his DADA teacher.

Very enjoyable.

Dear WiccaRowan,
Great first story... my beta hasn't gotten back to me yet. Very ingenious. I love it. Poppy's cool.

Poppy’s gaze travelled down the young man’s back, following the line of the sheets to the point where there was a shocking, unexpected dip.

OH MY GOSH SO FUNNY! Shocking dip eh? One little thing... I don't really think boys would be wearing jeans with flares, however if it's the 60's you never know... Have fun at the Quill!!!
