Chapter: The March

Hey Lia! I am so glad you finally got this up onto the archives. It blew me away when I first read it and you really did ace the challenge. You caught Tennyson's style so well and yet put it into a Harry Potter context. I love it. The tone, the flow, your use of repitition... it mirrors the original and yet it is unique in its own right. Well done!

Author's Response: Yay! Thank you so much for the support, Julia. You're the reason why I got this posted on the archives in the first place. So thank you. ^_^ I'm glad that I was able to emulate Tennyson while being unique. And thank you so much for your lovely comments, they make me feel all warm inside, and proud. ^_^ ~Lia

That's awesome! I love it! I particularly love the repeating line 'The weary and the brave.' It's just so fitting, particularly by the last great stanza. I just read the original and thought you did a great job paralleling the Tennyson poem. Working in the required words must have been tough. 'Flitwick'd' kind of jumped out at me, mostly because I thought the poem was about the battles outside Hogwarts. Not sure how you could have used that one differently, though. You picked a perfect poem for the Potterverse and married the topic to it wonderfully. Lovely job! ~Gina :)

Author's Response: Aww, thank you, Gina. *blushes* It was hard working in some of the words, and my 'Flitwick'd' as a verb was such a cheat. Hehe. I figured that Flitwick's wandstroke and technique was so popular that it was utilised outside of Hogwarts. Lol. But, you're spot on that this poem is about the battles (or the war) outside of Hogwarts. ^^ Thanks so much for the lovely review. *hugs* ~Lia
