Wow. Very deep! This is a great insight into Hermione's character - it shows not just as a bookworm (which she is not) but as someone who is strong and brave, just as her House says she is, though no one wants to believe it. (I've read too many fics where Hermione was just there to tell Ron and Harry what to do and then scream and run away...annoying, that...)

Great repetition, too, even in the part that wasn't poetry. And the small stanza at the bottom was wonderful. It is one of my favorite parts of this fic.
Some things are too true to be good.
Other things are too good to be true.
But few things are good enough for truth.


That is just so eloquent and breathtaking...and the truth. :-)

Wonderful job, I think I read somewhere that this was your first fic...it's brilliant, wow...

oOoOoOoOoO... made me shiver, that one did. and laugh and almost cry and wonder why I don't read more poetry when there's amazing things like this out there. absolutely brilliant. XoXo, Juli. *yes, we have the same name, although mine isn't short for Juliet...yet another reason why you rock so much!*

Author's Response: *smiles* Thanks... Poetry is a great genre, if well written, I think... xD

Hey! Hey, you wrote this!


I could have sworn I already reviewed. But thankfully I didn't because obviously I would have been wrong, huh?

...

Anyway, I couldn't resist checking out your bio. This is a really beautiful story - the poetry makes the whole thing flow so naturally, I don't even know how to describe it. Like... on the one hand, I could see everything happening, but on the other hand, with the constant, meaningful references to 'them', I found myself also imagining what had come before, which made the whole thing so much more tragic.


It was made even more valuable by realistic it was; Hermione obviously has these overpowering emotions, but at the same time you can see that she'll be alright. You've written her strength, especially, with an amazing flair, so not only does the situation and emotions get communicated, but her character comes through as well.


So yeah, overall I think this is a particularly lovely piece. Just brilliant.



Author's Response: Well, for not knowing how to describe it, I must say, you did a most spectacular job of it! I must thankyou, and eat my reviewer's choclolate, and then go to bed... 1:35 AM is not a sane hour, I tell you. Although that's always when my creative juices start flowing, and then I stay up till 3 writing - and I have to go to church tomorrow!
I need a time turner. That way, I could write, and then, I could go back in time and sleep in the guest bed, or something. Sounds good to me. Anyhow - thanks for the wonderful review!

Oh my.

Amazing. I love the way you show Hermione's thoughts and feelings.. kind of reminds me of me :)

The way you show the graveyard without really describing it.. that takes skill. I love how we don't really know who the poem's about until the end.

Excellent. Just.. keep writing, for this site's sake.

Author's Response: Thank you... That certainly puts things in a different light!

Wow, This was really.... great. Full of imagery (sp?) and really honest... full of real emotion, not the over-exaggerated emotion some authors pile into their stories. This was really good, please keep writing! It would be great to see how a multi-chapter fic turned out by you.

Author's Response: Thank you! I currently have a multi-chapter fic in progress - The first chapter is waiting to be verified.

This is really good. The first poetry fic I have read. I might have to read more.

Wow. This had so much truth embedded in the piece, it was like it was braided with imagery and meaning... Lovely job. Brought tears to my eyes.

Author's Response: Sentiment is always a good thing. I'm not a "tissue reader", so to speak, so I always like to know if my writing inspires such. :) Thanks!

Chapter: Amori

Wow. I'm speechless.

It felt so real, so... I don't know. Wonderful, realistic, Hermione-ish, beautiful, canon, excellent, emotional. Simply great. I especially loved that it was written on some kind of verse, with repititions but small variations in them, not only the poem part, but the in-between as well. It was just beautiful, it made me all soft inside.

This piece is just screaming talent; now I'll have to go check if you have any other stories posted. Just know that this was absolutely astoundingly good, so well-written, definately one of my favorites. The only thing I was thinking was that maybe it belongs in the poetry category... And I would've loved it to be a bit longer... Anyway. Like honey for the soul, or something like that. Splendid. 10/10

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! It's my first work here, so I'm thrilled for a nice review. I didn't put it in the poetry category because it wasn't supposed to be a poem when I started it... I guess it did end up as one, though. Thank you for the suggestions! They're greatly appreciated.
