Please tell me there is more to this one. It doesn’t seem quite finished.
Millicent Bulstrode, can’t say as I ever liked her character, but this makes her more human and likable. I know the angst of trying to fit in and belong to a cool group is very important to a lot of kids, and when you are in a situation where you can do something about it, most would do whatever it took. I really liked her attacks of conscience and the repetitive but changing comments about how thick she is.
You are doing these very well, and I have to repeat, please don’t stop writing them. You are way too good at it to stop. See you at another in a minute.
Author's Response: Thanks -- it stopped there with an ending sort of left open because it was written post-HBP, and I saw no reason to go further and predict things that probably wouldn't happen. :) We never saw her in DH, so whether she could be shown as doing anything is unclear.
Ugh! I had written you the LOVLIEST review, but then my stupid computer got messed up and it didn't post. So now I have to make a whole new one up, since the last one was pretty long and I don't remember it all.
You're really good at writing one-shots, aren't you? And this one was beautifully written. I loved how you really got into the character, so we sympatized. And it was cool to see 5th and 6th years from a Slytherin-who-doesn't-fit-in's point of view. Loved it. ;)
Author's Response: Thank you! I never really planned to write about Millicent, it just sort of happened that way. I'm guessing she might be on the fringes of Slytherin society, as it were.
Really, really good story! This sounds exactly like the real thoughts of a confused, unpopular girl. wonderful job. you portrayed the character perfectly!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm not sure why I did it that way -- it just started off like that and seemed to fit.
She reminds me of myself Millie does. Cool oneshot.
Author's Response: Thank you very much!
