Wow, I really did like this fic! It was a very interesting plot idea, and you managed to pull it off very well.
I'll admit that in the middle of the story, I was doubtful--love doesn't come that easy. So it was a pleasant surprise to see that you agreed with me, and showed this through Red's unfaithful actions.
I find it very intriguing that you chose the names "Ron" and "Lavender for your characters. Could it perhaps symbolize Ron Weasley and Lavender Brown's relationship--that Ron was just using Lavender to get his way? Interesting but clever choice!
Also, I love how you worked in the Wizard Card just at the very end; instead of showing her invent a potion, you instead chose to showcase the event(s) that lead her to pursue her dream. It was very well done and rather empowering too; her decision to become a Potioneer may have partly been for revenge, but it was something she had to prove to both Red andherself.
Like I said, this was a very well-written fic and I enjoyed it immensely. I'm amazed that this is your first story on Muggle Net Fan Fiction, and I can't wait to read more from you. Great job.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! While the names weren't complete coicidences I really didn't think of the paralell until it was pointed out to me by someone else and I love that it works that way.
The choice to show the Wizard Card at the end seemed the natural thing to do. I figured it isn't the event that makes the interesting story it's what leads to it.
I'm very glad you liked it and yes I love to write but this is my first fanfiction here on any site really unless you count FF.net ages ago. But I've just sumbitted the prologue to a chapter fic so that's coming up! Also, may I say I loved your review also, yay for long reviews!
