*hugs Miki tight* This is wonderful!
It really makes you think, bringing prejudice and racism together into the Potterverse. Things like this have happened to me, me being the Duncan. And reading this made tears prick my eyes. It just makes you so sad, thinking that if this stuff can make it into the Potterverse, through a brilliant woman's mind and into an imaginary world, it sort of gives you this feeling that it's not going away.
I'm really glad you wrote about this, because I loved reading this! Very, very good job! I have so much more to say, so little words to describe.
This is amazingly good. I love reading this different perspective of Dean Thomas's life (he's always been an interesting character to me), and the theme of the story made tears spring to my eyes. Incredible.
that was really powerful...i don't think people think that something like that could erally affect a person but it can and im glad that you confronted that problem. =]
That was really excellent - I love how you wove "muggle" issues into a magic situation, and so skillfully... It really was very, very good. Nice work, and I hope this affects the right people.
Wonderful and poingant. I think though, that the rating should be reduced so that more middle school kids will be allowed to read it. Often, they are the ones who need to learn from stories like this, so that they will think about the issues and mature from experiencing the story, instead fo from hurting someone carelessly and cruelly with a word.You don't use any profanity at all, and your sensitvity about "that word" is very kind and sweet and appropriate.
This is incredible. I'm sometimes subject to a form of racism and you've shown it beautifully. Well done!
