Again I really liked the idea and the opening of the story. It's kind of really midnight-dark, but that's okay as Bellatrix just is really dark herself and you did verx well describing her desperation, sulkiness and trapidation. In fact I REALLY like your story up to where Bellatrix is saying "A wand seemed meaningless" What did you have to bring the story so quickley to an end after that? A really unique and touching image nevertheless. Actually, I wanted to review all your other stories as well, as I really apreciate the way you put up with my first one, but if you don't wanna hear any more negative reviews I should maybe stop? However, it isn't said yet that I'm going to dislike your other stories, so I'm definatly going to read them. PS: If my first ever fic (Godric Gryffindor's Last Fight) will hopefully pass the review, you'll be able to pay me back.
Author's Response: I am surprised for all the reviews that just showed up online; I've been out of the house all morning!
I thank you for taking time to read and review my stories.
I actually enjoy reading your reviews; you give me another viewpoint on my stories. I have no problem reading reviews of people who aren't fond of my swriting, as long as they aren't flaming. You weren't; you were far from flaming. You should be proud of yourself that you're honest enough with writers that you are able to give them your true opinion. I respect that. In real life I am VERY honest; lots of people don't enjoy that. I am always considered a bit blunt, but I just can't see myself being fake with others. I can't see why people wouldn't enjoy reading the reviews of people who care enough to review even if they didn't like the story very much. I am glad that you are sharing your opinion, and I do hope that your fiction gets accepted, because I can;t wait to give an honest (whether the story is good or bad) review to you.
Cheers! I actually enjoy reading your reviews! And you shouldn't be so hard on your reviewing; you should simply state your thoughts on the piece. Thank you for reviewing.
Author's Response: Oh, and how could you consider your review on Bellatrix to be negative? I thought it rather sweet. Thanks again for reviewing; I really enjoy reading the thoughts of others and knowing that they've seen my stories.
Author's Response: And I like that you're German; I have been facinated with that country for at least a year. You seem to have nice English, though - any trouble with writing your story?
Definately very dark!! As with the Marauders fics, I haven't really read many like this. You definately have a flair for details! I'm glad McGonnagall was able to talk Bellatrix out of doing herself further harm. Very Good!
Author's Response: I am in the middle of two other one-shots like this; I somehow enjoy writing these types of stories. Thanks for all the compliments!
I like it! The part with her and McGonagall is really touching and the last line especially is really good. I think Bella's an interesting character; I wrote a fic about her too. The one thing this leaves me wondering of course is what WERE her problems? Also, given the content you probably want to raise the rating a little and include a SI warning.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I really think Bellatrix is interesting as a character; I hope J.K. adds a bit of background information. As for her problems, I think I might write a few more one-shots to give an idea. The content rating was PG-13 but somehow that got changed. Argh! I'll change it now. Thanks fore reviewing.
