I loved this, it sort of gives you a peak at the locked room while compounding the mystery around it. I always thought that room would have a bigger part to play in the HP books, but perhaps it's purpose was to remain a secret. Great fic!
Author's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed this story. I had a blast writing it. It has led to Declan showing up in tons of my stories, but usually as a supporting character. :) I plan on adding more about Faylinn at some point, I just need time to write about her. Thanks for the review. :) Cyns
THIS IS AWSOME! Faylinn has the exact same last name as me!!!!! (what a cincidence) I'm putting this story in my list of fav stories!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! LOL Ackerman was my Aunt's first married name. It just seemed to fit Faylinn too. I'm sure we haven't seen the last of her. I have grown fond of her. She does make a cameo in my story for the August Challenge (I forget the name right now) Declan is in Transfiguring Viewpoints. I foresee many more stories about both of them! :) Thanks again for reviewing.
Hi! Wow, this was such an original story! I love what you did with the locked room of love. Having it choose the people who come work there was a wonderful idea, and the rhymes on the door were fantastic! Did you write those yourself? You also did a great job of introducing your main character, Faylinn. There is obviously a lot of backstory there and you worked it in really well. Declan Hurst also seems like a fun, intriguing character. Are you planning to write more with either of them? I think it would be lovely. You did a really nice job with this story. Good luck in the HHWP! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: Faylinn came to me while I was wondering about that room. I think that I'll be adding more to this story as I figure out what is actually inside it. The first thing that I actually wrote in this story was the first poem. The rest of the story evolved around it. I'm really honored that you enjoyed the poems. The second one was hard to write, but I figured I couldn't have it be a poem the first time and just words the second time. I would also like to explore more about Declan. I would think that working in the locked room would have a profound effect on some, and he has worked there for years. Keep your eyes open, I'm sure more will be forthcoming about these characters. I have really taken a liking to them. :)
Expanding the Harry Potter world a bit further! New fun characters and ideas! Love it!! ;)
Author's Response: I had fun with Faylinn. I'm glad that you liked it!! :)
