Oh... This one was good! I like this part:
Ambitious Slytherin against brave Gryffindor
Gentle Hufflepuff versus Ravenclaw of wit
Words of anger flew between them
Daggers and spells. The unkind and physical fist.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm quite fond of that bit myself!
Very good. :)
Author's Response: Thank you!
I loved it. I found it in the Ravenclaw commenroom. I really like it. My favourite part was the one about Dumbledore. 19/10. Good Job! And what you said about it being more of a challlenge to write HP poetry. I think your right. What I do is take a poem i already wrote, and change it so it is HP related. That makes it easier. Wonderful Poem! HermyRox12
Author's Response: Glad to hear you liked it! I've changed one or two poems to make them fit fics of mine (one which is not yet posted. At all. I hate posting stories before they're completed and eight chapters in, this one is giving me an awful lot of trouble). Thanks for reading and reviewing!
I like it. A epic narrative about Hogwarts from past to present. Sadly itís true that houses divide people. I like the ending about the hatís job being done. Itís unique.
Love the fact that you did not find the need to capitalize end start of a new line. (Most poets do that) Ė your choosing not to do so gives it a more narrative feel.
Good poem. A style uniquely your own. :)
Author's Response: Oh. I suppose I have to allow your innocence on the Hamsterpants line then, now? Urgh. I'm glad you liked the poem; I find HP poetry much--harder is the wrong word, but I'm sure you get it--harder to write than poetry off the top of my head for the simple reason that, instead of writing off your own emotions, you're writing off of someone else's. And a fictional character at that. I generally don't capitalize at the beginning of sentences because when I wrote, I usually am narrating. [My free verse poetry would make my teachers cringe ;)]
Great poem. :) Good luck with the contest.
Author's Response: ooh! Yay! Ravenclaw support! Thanks so much!
Well, I'd made a mistake in reviewing your poem last time. I don't seriously think it deserves an 11. IT DESERVES A TWELVE! PLLLLLEAAAAAAAAASSSSEEE update soon and write such beautiful poems.
Author's Response: ;) You made me laugh. Poetry in the HP world is a bit more difficult that one's OWN poetry because you're writing something more personal than prose from another point of view. I will try though. (I do have other fics, you know. Check out 'Another Side of the Story' a WIP about first year through the eyes of Ron.)
THIS IS EXCELLENT! It IS BY FAR, the BEST poem I've read on this site. The rhyming is mind blowing and you have beautifully presented so much about hagwarts history in a SINGLE poem. It;s hard to rate it out of 10. Well, if I had to, I'd give it an 11. -Marvolo P.S- I'M SERIOUS ABOT THE 11/10!
Author's Response: Wow. Honestly, was not expecting a reaction like that at all. Wasn't expecting one at all. Glad you enjoyed it so much. Now I might actually be prompted to write another...
