That was so good.
That was.. wow...really...wow..
I ... wow. That was REALLY good!
On to the favorites list!!!
Beautifully written from Fenrir's POV. I was immediately drawn in by the mystery of his mission. Awesome descriptions enabled me to easily visualize the story as it unfolded. You wrote Fenrir wonderfully, Fenn. I loved the experiences Fenrir had as he entered the different rooms at the MoM. Kudos for am amazing story!
Author's Response: Lacey! *glomps* Thanks so much for your lovely review. And I'm so glad you liked it!!! You're wonderful! *huggles*
This was wonderful. I loved the twist about Regulus. But mostly, I loved being in Fenrir's mind. Your Fenrir is a very fascinating and complex character, and his struggles here are marvelous. I love how, in the end, even after all the fondness of his renewed aquaintance with Regulus, the fascination of the locket and his master causes him to cast the spell.
This is truly a first class effort, and you definitely deserve the win.
Author's Response: Vorona! *tackles*

CONGRATS ON WINNING THE GAUNTLET! I knew you had it in you!
Author's Response: *squees* Thanks so much Schmerg! *hugs* And the same goes to you--you're amazing! Thank you so much. =]]]]] *belated bounces*
Fenrir, Fenrir. This is incredible. It takes guts to give a first person narrative of someone who does truly wrong and horrible things without romanticizing it or softening it. Heck, I certainly can't do that with Voldemort! I always end up sticking morals in my story.
Yours was a shock, and I like the way you used the prompts to form a storyline that really makes sense within the Potterverse. I had no idea that 'Black' meant the younger brother-- I was thinking Sirius-- and that was a surprise, as was the fact that he was an Animagus. The room where the dementors were bred was also an interesting touch. I wished I'd seen more of Fenrir's parents, though. It would be interesting.
You use description very well-- I've always been a big fan of your writing style. I only have one, very mild, critique of this piece: you used the word 'quarry' rather a lot. But I'm guessing that was intentional.
Oh, and I think there's a typo where you left in some of your beta's comments. When Fenrir first sees Regulus, it says: Suddenly, though, realisation dawns on him – "I can see [cut 'it'] in his eyes that he understands."
Really fantastic Gauntlet submission. It's always a treat to read your Fenrir fic and be reminded that there are other werewolves than the sympathetic, tame little puppy that is Remus Lupin! (I love Remus, but variety is the spice of fanfiction.)
Author's Response: *huggles* Oh Schmergy love, thank you. <333 Your fabulous review certainly made my day [even if I've taken ages to respond. =P] Anyways, thanks so much! And *headdesk* about the beta's comment. *rolls eyes* Thanks for pointing that out!
Anyways, thanks so much for your lovely review! It truly makes my day and means a lot!
