Chapter: A Long Night

In most fiction we have the liberty of b&w characters, with clear-cut heroes and villains. You've told a great little story by adding some depth to someone most of us reviled without considering how he became who and what he was in COS. Thanks for the great read!

Author's Response:

That's the true beauty of the universe that JKR has built for us - the gift of hope in every character (except ol' Moldy Voldy). No one is just that big a git to the point that that there is not a redeeming quality. Lockhart, for all of his many, many, many personality flaws, was never really a villain so much as a misguided character. All of us have good in us, no matter how hard some may hide it. I simply delved into what I saw as his soul and tried to bring some of it out; I knew it was there, and I also knew that he, as a character, deserved to have his story told.

Thank you so much for the review; they're like candy, chocolate, and a variety of other pleasant things for us authors. I'm so glad you liked it. :-)

Take care,

~Jess

Chapter: My Day with Gilderoy

I liked this story. You made Lockhart's character believable, that it might be possible for him to experience love. Perhaps Elijah will discover his career in writing.

Author's Response:

I've been toying with the idea of taking the story of Elijah further, perhaps as a character in conjunction with my other stories. I wanted Lockhart to seem less like the pompous ass that we saw in CoS and more like the man that I made him. There was never any mention as to why he stopped adventuring to pursue a teaching career, so I make one. :D

Thanks for reading,

~Jess
