Holy Harry Potter, indeed! XD sorry that I'm replying here in a review, but I'm not exactly sure how else to contact you! Again, your poem was obviously amazing. Deserving of MY praise? Oh please! You're your own worst critic my dear. Of course, quite understandable. I wouldn't mind chatting once every other month. XD You too, dear! Happy Holidays! (:
I adored the limerick at the beginning!
And the way you described the urge and attraction Death Eaters felt to join Voldemort and why...very, very beautiful in a dark and emotional sort of way! I can't believe reading these poems that you could EVER enjoy the pathetic one I posted, but yet you used it for a poetry class! it is because of you I have decided to dedicate myself to mugglenet once more, and am hoping to get at least a little poem in, before I go into my first fanfiction story! (:
Author's Response: OMYGOSH secret shadows! long time no talk, i was so surprised to find a "review received" notice in my inbox. thank you so much for your input, and don't be so harsh on yourself your poem was *amazing*. lol every time i read over my poems i like them less and less... so i don't think they're so deserving all your praise, but i appreciate it nonetheless. i'll be sure to check up on your works every once in a while, but the real world is constantly preoccupying me with busy-ness, so i only every get on mugglenet like once every other month. have wonderful holidays, hopefully we'll talk again sometime soon!
WOW! Siriusly. Just wow. *speechless*
Author's Response: Siriusly . . . hehe. Thanks!
Wow, this was so amazing. I don't know how many times I can tell you this but you are a terrific poet! This was my favorite part:
Their thoughts became foggy with greed
And now they laugh when others bleed,
It was so powerful, and true and saddening. Continue to write such beautiful poems pretty please! And thanks for the advise on my poem, you were so right! -Haylee
Author's Response: Thanks for the kind review. I'm glad you enjoy my poems- and I plan on writing many many more! Also, I read your poem and the new ending is fantastic! Glad I could help. ^^
*envies* Now how can i even try to write a Rondeau when I know you are doing one and when I have seen this amazingness? There's no way I could write a Rondeu half as good! *envies* *envies*
This is a really great poem. I think you did a wonderful job with it, lack of turn and all. It really flows well (maybe due to the type of poem it is, but STILL) and just makes a lot of sense. And, as you said, it's dark. I love it. *is awed* I really can't find anything to critique.
Author's Response: Thanks for the nice review. I decided to try writing Rondeaus for the challenge and found that I really like writing them. (By the way, my other Rondeaus aren't as good as this but I couldn't submit it to the challenge b/c of the lack of turn.) I'm glad it makes sense! ^_~ I'm sure your Rondeau for the challenge will be amazing, I'm eager to see what other come up with!
Fabulous Rondeau! You really captured the mood very well. Great explanation of the DE's thinking. Well done. :) ~GG
Author's Response: Thank you. ^^ I really wanted to capture the thoughts and fears of both the ones trapped under Voldy's lead and those who followed him willingly.
Wow. that was great..again. I kinda feel sorry for the Death Eaters after reading this.=Sammy
Author's Response: Thanks! Don't feel too sorry though, they're still evil.
