That's so sad! Poor Eloise. It was an interesting poem. (Interesting good).
"Each time one disappears,
Five more take its place."
Just out of curiousity, did you get the idea for that line from the Hydra in the myth Hercules?
This really potrayed what Eloise was going through. I myself have never had acne *thanks parents for not giving that gene to me* But I have friends who have it and I can really picture myself with it and I know that it cannot be fun. Anyway good job and keep writing.
Author's Response: You are a lucky person and a envy you. Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: I mean, "I envy you". ARGH.
That was really funny, though I feel for for Eloise.... mildly. The way you portrayed her thoughts was really accurate.... did you read her mind? ;)
Oh, by the way, I looked at some of your responses to my other reviews and I have responses to your responses:
Oh, shucks! I' m flattered to be one of your favorite reviewers! *grins because life finally has meaning*
My penname: I was actually referring to my obsessiveness for anything related to the Potterverse, but I am also a mild H/L shipper. Jo really had me going in OotP, and I'd be happy with either H/G or H/L.
Sorry for slightly spammy review. Nice work!
Author's Response: *sigh* I still don't see the humour, but this has little to do with my readers and more to do with my poetic skills, or lack thereof, I'm sure. No, I did not read Eloise's mind. I did read some teen magzines, though! You are indeed one of, if not my absoulute, favorite reviewer. Because you have left lovely reviews of everything I've ever posted here. MAJOR brownie points, that gets you. I wish I could say the same about H/G and H/L, but at the moment I'm torn between denial and hitting Jo with a frying pan, so... Thanks for the slightly spammy review!
I'm sorry....I didn't mean to offend you in anyway. I is actually my fault for not getting the clear message. I really liked it though!
Author's Response: Andrew. I get it! I'm not at all offended, and I'm glad you liked the poem.
Author's Response: Also, if you have anything else to say, please contact me through my author's page, not a review.
Oh, sorry...I didn't know you didn't want it to be funny....I still loved it though!!
Author's Response: Erm, it's okay... let me go read it again and see exactaly what you might have mistaken for humour,
Author's Response: Well, I did. Still seems pretty depressing to me.
Oh no, what curse was it? Recently I've recently found myself fascinated with minor characters. Acne is a horrible thing *glances at reflection*. Imagine what would happen if Harry suddenly got acne... Sadly I can really relate to Eloise. I'm going through that exact same stage at the moment. I'm perfectly aware of it but I can't stop it. I call it self-loathing. What house is Eloise in? I don't remember.
Author's Response: I don't know what curse it was, just that she used it to try and get rid of the spots. Not AK! minor characters are fun, but acne's not. I have it too. You shouldn't worry about a few little spots! In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter. I can tell you're a really nice person, and that's what's important. I think Eloise is either a missing Gryff girl or a Hufflepuff. The picture of a pimpled Harry has brightened my day! :D
HAHA!! Loved it!! GREAT poem! You are on of my favorite authors on Mugglenet!!
Author's Response: Haha? Well... it's not supposed to be funny... But glad you enjoyed it. You really like my writing that much? *swoons* THANK YOU!
A real picture of poor self esteem. I loved it
Author's Response: Eloise- picture of the modern world, where girls are pressured to be "perfect." Glad you liked it!
Wow. I felt so sorry for her. Good job! ♥
Author's Response: Thanks!
Author's Response: I was just re-reading my reviews, and the thought "Kerichi gave MY poem a heart!" came to me, so... yeah.
