Wonderful fic! Seamus is one of my favorite characters and I think that you did him justice!
Ooh, CA, I really enjoyed this. Hasn't this class been so much fun? It's turned this bit of time that is so much a mystery into a big question mark for me, and is becoming one of my favorite things to read.
Nice use of the required elements. You wove them in seamlessly; I never would have known they were part of the assignment.
I like your Nott here. He is kind of an enigma of a Slytherin, and I like that you continued that ambiguity here. He is one of the torturers and doesn't seem to mind it, and yet, he doesn't rat out Seamus when he clearlly knows what is going on there. Well played.
I like the idea of Neville and Seamus becoming better friends, and Seamus being thankful for it, and yet not for the reason it happened. There must be a lot of that going on during this year... people missing, and therefore others draw closer without them.
Really nice one-shot. I've enjoyed reading all your drabbles in class and chatting in the discussions, CA. Nice writing. :)
Wow, this story was so intriguing! I love how fast-paced it moved, especially during the rescue scene. The beginning was lovely, too -- the easy banter between the D.A. members made me smile. I love Seamus's idea to spray paint. Great job with that!
I think probably the sweetest part of this was the "romance" (for lack of a better word) between Ellie and Stewart. Your two OCs were wonderfully done, and their relationship made them seem all the more innocent and worth protecting.
I also like what you did with Nott, taking a very mysterious Slytherin and turning him into someone who is neither likable nor dislikable. I admire him for not telling the Carrows about Seamus's paint, but I like that you've also made him snide and sneering, not someone who appears to be easy to get along with.
I really enjoyed this story! Great job :)
this story was so fantastic!! the pairing(s) were absolutely believable and touching, and i loved reading this. excellent fluff that doesn't cross over into cheesy
Haha. This was really funny, how Padma thought of the distraction. It was amazingly written and I liked the urgency of it and everything. Nice job!
