Chapter: Nagini's Lullaby

Hello!

I don't venture into the Poetry category very much, only when someone recommends a poem. But, I made an exception for a title that really looked interesting. I love your choice of a title for this fic, because it really is an oxymoron, thinking of one horrible creature having a lullaby at night. I think that your summary could have used more work, but it was a start.

Nagini is such a wonderful creature, but you used what we don't know about her to create story. I loved your references to her being "secluded", because she really is amongst her masters Death Eaters. I do have one question to ask you, though. Do you think that Nagini is the Dark Lord's love? the thing he likes most? I would have liked to see more insight into what she thought that her master, Voldemort, thought of her. It was mostly just her thoughts of him.

The only other thing that I can find to critique is that the rhyming looked very forced. It looked like ever single outward rhyme you held up a thesaraus to, and copied whatever fancy words you could find. There is nothing wrong with doing this, it just seems very obvious. Would you really talk like this? if not, then find a replacement word.

Overall, a very good job! Keep on writing, and don't be offended by my nitpicky-ness!

I enjoyed this poem. Even though it's complicated at first once you get the hang of it it's brilliant

A very creative poem, and an unusual one, i.e. that of Nagini's perspective. Keep up your poetry skills - I hope we'll see more from you!
