That is a really amazing poem.It's good that they defeated voldemort, but it's a pity hogwarts was reduced to a destroyed battlefield.


Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it so much! It is sad hogwarts was destroyed, but I suppose that's just how I always imagined it.

I like the sound and layout of that poem, but I don't really understand it.

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked the way the poem was set up- but what, exactly, was it you didn't understand? If you're looking for meaning in the poem... it's about how something horrible, like death and destruction, could still give rise to something beautiful like a flower, or a pheonix rising from it's ashes. Thanks for the review anyway!

I'm not normally one for poetry, but your summary seemed interesting, so I decided to try it. I'm very glad that I did.

I really like how you are able to describe what happened to who, without mentioning names.

Your descriptions of the places really give the entire thing a dark feeling that perfectly matches the situation. When thinking about the setting of Hogwarts, most of the time it is hard to picture the grounds being in a terrible state such as the one you described, but thanks to your writing I was able to picture it.

The flower at the end is certainly something interesting. It wouldn't be expected that anything good could come in such destruction, but the flower shows hope in the horrible situation.

I really enjoyed it, my only question would be the purpose of the hat. I'm curious as to who it belonged to.

The poem was lovely.

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the poem! The hat in question belonged to Professor Sprout- I'm not sure if it's mentioned in the books, but I always imagined Professor Sprout as wearing a patched hat with dirt on it. Anyways, I'm glad you decided to give poetry a try. I don't usually read it either, but some of the stuff on the site are real gems. Thanks so, so much for a review that made me feel happy inside after a rough day! Maybe you should join SPEW?

Chapter: Aftermath

Aww! This potion is very emotional, and rightly so. Sometimes it's difficult to communicate the emotion without having characters throwing histerics or at least having overly dramatic thought patterns, which just does not seem like post-war Hermione. But this was done just right - well done. I like the flower too. Whether it was intentional or not, purple is just so... Dumbledore. Which rocks. And links in especially well with the books... like his now-famous quote in CoS. Very nice ^^.

Author's Response: thanks! I'm assuming you meant poem, not potion, although I can whip up a mean fruit punch if you'd like to stay and join the party. I got the flower idea from a picture I saw once of purple flowers growing out of a boulder, and it just seemed to fit. It is rather Dumbledorish, isn't it? Thanks so much for the great review!
