I really loved this story! The emotion was great, and it was immaculately planned. I could feel the way Spinner wanted to be a customer! Keep up the good writing!

This is just fabulous. You've given Spinner a wonderful personality, unlike any I've seen in fanfic before. Very well done.

Wonderful. You have no idea how much it does my heart good to see Ron like this. So many people sell him short, but this is such a RON thing to do!

And I felt like I had so much in common with Spinner! She was perfect. I know the magic of a dress in the window, only I'm too cheap to actually spend the money!

I enjoyed your deep insights. A thoughtful, lovely piece.

Just when I think there is no point reading fan fiction anymore, because all the writers with any talent have lost interest and moved on to other things, a well executed story like this pops up.

Well executed because 1) It is free of offenses against the elements of good style and 2) it has psychological depth. JK Rowling never went into the reasons why Doby wanted clothing or payment for his services. These were just among the things that marked him as an oddball among his kind. You, VB, have magnificently tied those two things together. As a keen observer of the wizards she serves, Spinner has noticed there is a power relationship inherent in financial transactions that supercedes even the strongest magic, wants a share of that power, and understands that buying fine robes with her own money gives her an enduring marker of that power. Of the exercise of that power rather. More important, she also understands it's a power that needs to be conserved.

Again, well done!
