Wow! A nice story ou've got here, Gina!
Dumbledore versus Grindelwald was quick and fast-paced. The suicide was reall dramatic - in fact, I'd almost forgotten about the warning before I came to that part! Interesting allusions to Hitler, by the way.
The light-hearted parts with Nicolas Flamel were amusing. I have this 'serious' vision of Flamel in my head; your jovial version was a bit of a surprise for me. The transition was a little fast-paced, but still good.
Good luck in the challenge!
Author's Response: Hi Mini! Thanks so much for reading this story, and for the lovely review! I don't know why I pictured Flamel as more jovial and lighthearted, I guess that is just how he introduced himself. I also wanted to contrast him with Grindelwald. I could see why the transition between the two seems rushed. I definetely wanted to change tone, but could probably work on smoother transitions in the future. I enjoyed working on the two sides of this story, however. Thanks again for the review and good luck yourself! ~Gina :)
i like this a lot - give sme a thought that possibly nicholas flamel (if not already dead) might make an apperance to help with the war in book 7... maybe. well goot story - plot, connecting it all good good and i read a love lost and have it as a favorites; ur a talented author in my opinion - email@example.com
Author's Response: Thanks for my first review on this story! I'm glad you enjoyed reading about Nicholas Flamel. Unfortunetly, I believe that JKR has said that Flamel did die after Dumbledore destroyed the Philospher's Stone at the end of Book One. Chances are he won't be around to help Harry in Book Seven, although it could certainly happen in fanfiction! I am also happy you read Portrait of a Love Lost as I am particularly proud of that story. Thanks again for reading them and leaving a review! ~Gina :)
