I thought this poem weird when i first read it, but after contemplating each line it sort of fits. Very attention grabbing, I won't forget it in a hurry.
Author's Response: I haven't been on Mugglenet in ages, so this is the first time I'm reading this review, but it really made my day, so thank you. :)
OMG dude! That was really just...awesome. So short and simple, but at the same time so powerful. I really don't know what to say, no suggestions or crit from me! It flowed really well and you managed to tell the entire story of that night without being overly verbose or angsty or messing up Draco's characterization. I also really like that you used the word "mentor"... Draco must have looked up to Dumbledore and that just make his "task" that much more difficult. *hugs* I'll shut up now, but thanks for a great read!
Author's Response: Hey Mithril! *huggles* Thanks so much for the review! *gives you a plate of cookies* This really made my day. :) Hopefully I'll be back to the Forums soon and we'll chat some more. :)
Wow. It's short but it's powerful - I like it! You've chosen the words really well, and the rhyming is great.
I especially like the ideas of tainted skies and silenced cries. The later refers to death, right? Or of Harry being silenced on the tower? And the tainted skies seems to me to be like the Dark Mark disrupting the usual beauty of stars.
It's lovely how thought provoking this poem is. Well done! *huggles*
Author's Response: *huggles* Thanks for both reviews! *hands over cookies*
Yup, tainted skies was referring to the Dark Mark, and silenced cries was Dumbledore silencing Harry.
Siriusly, reading this just made the rest of my week. :D
*giggles* Sammie, your A/N was longer than your poem!
However, I loved the poem. It was so short and it still managed to convey a lot of emotion. I think it was really well done.
I will be waiting in the CR for my cyber cookie. :p
Author's Response: Hehe, thanks Elle! What can I say, it needed to be 100 words. *shrugs* I'll be there in a minute to give you your cookie. :)
This is soo funny!! Well, not funny in a bad, twisted, psychotic way because something so depressing would be so funny, but I think you know what I mean. ^__^ I love it!!! It's great. And the Author's Note is hilarious as well. GREAT job!!! Sometimes, short and sweet is perfect, and it says a lot in just four lines. Wonderful!!! Simply wonderful!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Don't worry, I know what you mean. ;)
Author's Response: Eeek! I'm so sorry about my broken promise about cookies. :O *gasps* I completely forgot about it! Lol, here ya go! *gives Bows and Batons a cookie*
I like it. It's sad, but it fits well. Nine words of brilliance. Good job.
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
Author's Response: Oh no! I forgot that I promised to give out cookies! Well, better late than never, so here it is... *gives Osolis Mantis a cookie*
