Chapter: House Elves

Hey! It's an acrostic like my poems! It spells HOUSE ELVES! Very cool!

Author's Response: Yup! Though I certainly have't written as many acrostics as you have *eyes widen at amount* Thanks for reviewing, and good job figuring it out! -Laila, who feels special to have poem called 'very cool'

Great work. The pattern of the first letter in each verse spells "HOUSE ELVES"!!

Captured the essence of the elves' existence.

Author's Response: Hmm, I have a strange feeling I've seen this propped up somewhere.... Deja vu!

*wanders in, slightly embarrassed* Heh. THIS poem...>.> (Meaning the one I totally misread your acrosticness.)

Reviewing now.

I love this poem, Laila. It's simple and short and sweet, to the point, and it really explains the way house elves feel and are mistreated. (But don't they LIKE what they do? Well, some don't - Dobby, for example, and there's others, I'm sure.)

Seeing and doing it all, yet staying pure,

That's my favorite line, by the way. I was just wondering - how do they stay pure? Any reasons?

Otherwise, though, this is a very...moving poem. (Couldn't find the words. *rolls eyes at herself*.) I love the way you portray the house elves.

Author's Response: Heheh, don't worry about it. Most people didn't even realize it (I never notice things like this anyways). Well, to answer your liking work question, some don't naturally like it (Dobby), but I have a nagging suspicion that most of them have some conscience; I mean, if you're smuggling Dark items and you know it, wouldn't you feel a tad bit guilty? There are still those house elves who have no shame or don't understand (Kreacher for the shame, or lack thereof). Glad you liked the line, by the way. They stay pure because they don't really have a choice, do they? I mean, Kreacher is an exception, but I'm sure not all house elves are modeled after him. Besides, I don't think they would be doing Dark activities if they were free. Can you see Hokey killing someone??? Thanks for the encouragement. I was so lucky to have you as a beta! *huggles*

Pattern.....pattern.... is the pattern the fact that its an acrostic? Good job on this! You did a good job of detailing the life of a poor, mistreated house elf. Some of my fave lines were:

Seeing and doing it all, yet staying pure,
Even though inside, they feel tainted.


and of course... the last line. ^^


Author's Response: Yeah, you would read the words 'HOUSE ELVES' if you read the first letter in each line. *grins* Nice job figuring it out. *squees* So happy you liked it! Thanks sooo much for reviewing!

Well, I'm not really sure about the pattern relating to the subjectm but it was still a great poem. Good Job Again.

Author's Response: *grins* Yay! I'm happy when my readers are happy, even if I can be confuzzling. The pattern in that if you read the first letter of each line, it reads 'HOUSE ELVES'. (Cliche, but effective). Glad you liked!

I know what you mean about reviews.

Anyway, please explain said pattern* is a little slow.=Sammy

Great job by the way

Author's Response: Yeah, they feel awesome (unless they're useless one-word reviews with no meaning whatsoever). Heheh, everyone wants to know. If you read the first letter of each line, it says 'HOUSE ELVES'. Kind of cliche, but I've always wanted to write a poem like that ;D . I really loved your poem-sequel, To Lily, With Love. I also liked An Unwanted Gift. You are such a talented writer! Anyways, thanks for reviewing! *hugs*
