…wow. I was intrigued to read this when I read the summary and authors note. I’d never thought about why Fawkes wouldn’t have been there to save Dumbledore on the night of his death. This is a really good interpretation – and pretty realistic too. I love the way that Fawkes interprets the actions and thoughts of ‘mortals’, yet he seems to have so much respect for Dumbledore. I really like the end of this story when the pace picks up and we can almost feel Fawkes’ urgency and slight panic as he realises why he has been sent to the Department of Mysteries, and then hurries back. Somehow I’m drawing parallels with Dumbledore in book 1 here, where he is sent to the MOM only to realise on getting there that he must hurry back and save Harry.

Good luck! This is a fantastic story!

Author's Response: Thanks! go forth and pimp! Maybe our fellow slyths can come and leave enough reviews to sway theGauntlet judges. :)

*Note-- I meant to say, how does this not have MANY reviews. There is quite a difference between 'many' and 'any...'

Author's Response: That's ok, you also called it a "goo story" at some point... *splortch, shlerp*

OH WOW. If you don't place in this, I may have to impale the mods. I can't even begin to leave a useful review. This is... very, very goo, mind-bogglingly so. You've captured so much wisdom and yet so much... well... birdness, and I'm beginning to feel suspicious that you actually are Fawkes and not a human writer.

Very tight writing, extremely descriptive without being too verbose. (Guess who's verbose here? *points to self and waves enthusiastically*)

I find it interesting that Fawkes doesn't consider himself a bird. I've never thought of it that way before.

The idea that he influenced Da Vinci was fantastic. I wonder how much he influenced Dumbledore's own personality? They seem to have quite a bit in common in some ways, and yet are total opposites in others.

How does this not have any reviews. This is quite literally brilliant, and when I say that, I mean it.


Feeling very untalented,

Author's Response: Aww. *blushes* Don't tell anybody about my fundamental phoenicity. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to make these keys work with my feathers. I'm glad you liked it--go forth and pimp, maybe I'll get some more reviews that way!

Impressive and powerful - I cannot get those words out of my mind when I read this piece. There's so many details that I love - the description of how words have no truth struck with the force of a lightning bolt to my mind. I admit to being a fan of the written word and the power they can create, but your writing has left me realizing how insignificant words can be.

You have fabulous descriptions woven throughout the piece, creating such wonderful imagery. Fawkes is a beautiful character and this is a great way to show it.

Author's Response: Thanks! I was trying for something cool and interesting, just because I love Fawkesie so much and he seems so ancient and wise. Glad it worked for you!

Oh My God! This was so good. Even though you did not get through all theprompts this is superb. It would have been interesting to see you get through the rest of them. Your writing style is superb and the story flowed so well.

Books are mortals' only hope of finding either Truth or immortality

That is so true.

Author's Response: Glad you're liking it!

I thought your story was very well written, especially since it was from Fawkes point of view! I really loved how you tied the prompts to the ending of HBP at the end---that was....*thinks for word* lovely! You have a knack for putting words together....good luck!

Author's Response: Thanks!

I love this part:

I begin to appreciate the concept of swear words.

You have a way with words! Great story. The orginality of this puts you ahead of the pack!.

Author's Response: *snerk* Well, it would be nice to win some house points--let's hope the judges think like you!

That was truly original! I loved reading this from Fawkes POV. You did a great job with the prompts you were able to get through and converting them to work with a magical creature! Good luck with the challenge! :) Cyns

Oooh, what an unique take on the Gauntlet prompts. I'm very impressed that you managed to do this through a Fawkes' PoV, and I really liked how you fit it into HBP. Lovely job, good luck in the challenge!

Author's Response: Thanks!

**Squee!** That was beautiful! And so sad at the end when he see's Dumbledore! **tears up**

It must have been so hard to do it from Fawkes POV, you done so well!!

Good luck with the Gauntlet!
