I really enjoyed this fic. I think it would be even better if you could continue it with a different goddess/Muse per chapter. Maybe once the challenge is over?
In many ways, I find myself identifying with Hermione, and I am a classics major and study mythology. I think it's great that you've taken this link between them and written about it.
I loved the part at the very beginning in the library the best. It seems like the sort of thing I would do, and I think you characterized Hermione very well. Overall, great fic!
Happy Holidays from the Order of Ravenclaw House Elves!
Ooooh this captured my attention most. I'd like to know what happens next. as the last part says “Who knows…”. 8D
Author's Response: Haha - Thanks! I'm glad you liked it.
Aww...only a one-shot? This could have so much more. But I loved it anyways. It was different and origional. Great Job as always!
Author's Response: Thanks! This was actually for the New Years Challenge, I think, and so it was a one-shot. I'm glad you liked it, though! Thanks again! (*needs to find a new word resembling thanks*)
You've really showed us the depth of Hermione's intelligence through her love of reading in this story. From her strict habit of reading a book from beginning to end and her reading out loud so she can better understand the text, you've really shown how she became the insufferable know-it-all we all love.
I also found it sweet that the only person that Hermione can relate too is a Goddess! Despite having friends and people of her age, the only person that she can talk to on her level is a Roman Goddess - a Muse. Again, it just shows how intelligent Hermione is.
And then I love the thought process of Polyhymnia. I love the irony in their first meeting when Poly thought that Hermione wasn't smart at all since she didn't touch her picture. I found myself laughing that.
But overall, this story is nice and well written. It brings home the message of how powerful learning can be.
Author's Response: Yay! I love reviews! Thanks for the amazing review, and thanks for being the first review!
