When I first read COS i thought Lockhart was quite comical, but in truth he's a very dangerous man, and to answer his question, Yes he is guilty no matter how few people remember!
*groans* I have no imagination! I can't even begin to fathom why someone was killed because of him! I like stories with good solid endings. Other than that, I liked how it was written. And the plot behind it. Please continue to write more fics!
Author's Response: Alright, you have me convinced. I will write a short fic about who died and why. Thank you for the review!
good story! i liked it, and that was a good way to show why lockhart did what he did. now i want to know who died and why!
Author's Response: Thank you for your review! Maybe I'll write that story for you over Christmas. I think it'd be fun!
I liked it, though the paragraphs being set apart made it difficult to read.
Despite Gilderoy being a little out of character, I enjoyed it!
Author's Response: I'm sorry about the formatting! From here on, I add in the html to format my stories so that they can be submitted to the site, but are also readable. Despite Gilderoy being a little out of character I disagree with you on this note. In CoS, when he was about to modify Harry and Ron's memories, he seemed just as nasty as he did in this fic. I took points of Lockhart's character from the books and wrote drabbles for each. This first was that he seemed to always want to be associated with all that is respected, adored and loved. That would not include Slytherin. And I could imagine that despite becoming immensly egotistical in adulthood, he would have been like most first years - insecure, and just wanting to go home. Hogwarts, I'd imagine, would be a frightful place to be if you'd lived at home for eleven years, don't have older siblings attending the school, and feel ridiculously insignificant thanks to your size and age. The second was that Lockhart, in wanting to seem superior, brave and good, stole other people's stories and wrote them as his own. I would imagine that any teenager in his position, and with his disposition would react to his Professor's punishment as Lockhart did. The last was just his final descent - the first time he'd ever modified someone's memory in order to keep his reputation clean. So, there you go. Thank you for the review! I'm amazed that you deemed it an eight out of ten! Thank you so much!
