Chapter: Drama Dolorosa

Surreal, but a missing moment no question, I can just imagine Hermione recalling this with smug satisfaction every time she heard Umbridges name mentioned.

Chapter: Drama Dolorosa

I didn't expect to read what I did when clicking on the link to your story, dear.

It was a highly entertaining and amusing read -- only proving that you are a talented author. Kudos to you for writing a lovely one shot such as this.

I really like the various interactions between Dolores and the students/teachers. You're quite creative and keep your readers reading.


Severus Snape was enjoying his free day in his sanctum. No ignorant students, no melting of cauldrons, and certainly no Neville Longbottom or Harry Potter.


I laughed out loud on this one. The humorous ways you let the readers get acquainted with the characters you've portrayed is certainly well set-up.

Your description also lets us see the situations the characters get themselves into and it goes without saying your imagery provided clear, mental pictures.
Bravo!

The only concrit I have for you is to not make the situations too far-fetched, such as the one with Dolores bathing while the students scrutinize her. Conversely, those are the situations that provide the backbone to your stories and make them more creative. What I'd really like to see is you telling us how Umbridge happened to be bathing and the such.

Overall, I'm very happy I have read this story, as it is a rare treat! And thank you, for making the wonderful banner and avvie for me.

*hugs*

Very interesting. The idea was very original, and well written.

You had a nice amount of description. I could picture it, but there wasn't so much it was boring.

I think Snape and Hermione were just a little out of character when they were talking. Why was Hermione so upset over losing house points? I know she wouldn't be happy about it, but she seemed just a bit too upset over it. And I doubt Snape would give her ten points, even if she did deserve them. Snape doesn't like Hermione, and has never given her any points before.

I also think you need an AU warning. This is just way too far from canon to even be a "what if?" sort of thing.

The last paragraph was a bit strange. I don't think it really worked all that well. It seemed out of place, and not really necessary.

I loved the idea for this fic! It's so original, not a clich in sight. Almost all of your fics are that way, and that's what makes you one of my favorite authors. I don't see very many fics that are as well written and original as yours. Once again, great job!


Author's Response: Thank you for the review, midnight_me! I really appreciate it. I guess the fact that I'm a HG/SS shipper shines through everything I write. I will try to avoid that in the future. And I will put an AU warning on the thing. Thanks again? I love concrit reviews!

Lol...Nice way to make a fool out of Umbrige...old hag....

You were able to put a very good mental picture in my head, and i can tell that you put a lot of hard work into describing everything.... I thake it that the very end of hermione's memory was were the new memory took over?

usally i don't like it when you change POV's in the middles of a chapter, but the way you did it it just flowed, so good job...

if there was still a rating i would give you a 10/10

Author's Response: Thanks for the lovely review, I'm glad you liked the story. *blushes from the compliments* Thank you, my dear, you just made my day!

Chapter: Drama Dolorosa

This was a lovely little fic. I chuckled quite a lot. Umbridge is so much fun to torture.




Favorite moment: Harry, Ron, and Ginny on the brooms after Umbridge renigged on her deal. I just loved the characterization there.




Constructive Comment:




Snape seemed unusualy kind to Granger in my opinion. :)




Overall: Lovely job! It was a fun read :)

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! And I agree, Umbridge is fun to torture. Ah, and about Snape and Hermione... Well, okay, I admit it, it was on purpose. But Snape had a moment there, because he was really annoyed with Dolores and he was kind because Hermione found the means to torture Dolores and she did it by brewing a potion! lol Thanks again!
