Chapter: Sorting Hat's Song

Brilliant! I am awful at poetry, so I envy you for writing this. But don't worry, it's in a good way.

Chapter: Sorting Hat's Song

Firstly I have to commend you for managing to write this entirely in rhyme and with a good rhythm, which flowed really well and reminded me of the Sorting Hat song in PS. It had a sing-song sort of feel to it, almost like an extended limerick, which worked really effectively.

I enjoyed the message as well, and I thought you did a great job of explaining the past of the four founders in verse, although perhaps you might have mentioned the names of the houses?

I like the idea about "the choice is in you", but I'm not sure the Sorting Hat would actually say that... this is hard to explain, but I think the fact that Harry even thought to say what he wanted showed something unique in him... sorry, I can't really explain it, but I suppose times have changed and the hat might say this.

It can’t be decided by color, house, wars. - I really liked this line, I think it really summed up the whole message of the poem.

Great job, I really enjoyed reading this!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I've actually never written much poetry before, so I'm glad you thought it worked. I think with not mentioning the house names, I was trying to stress that it really doesn't matter, and the division is more superficial than everyone makes it. As I said in the summary, this was written to be in a next generation story, of which a main theme is: the war is over, this continued prejudice and division is ridiculous. So, I rather pictured that the Sorting Hat is getting quite fed up with all this fighting between houses. I also feel like more kids need to hear that, "It's our choices that make us who we are, far more than our abilities," because that's always been a really powerful quote for me. Thanks again for reviewing, it truly means a lot to me! -Claire

This was delightful. I have been anxiously awaiting the Fanfic site to start working again so I'd have some new stories to read, and this one did not let me down. I look forward to the fic you wrote this one for.

Author's Response: Thank you!! You have no idea how much this inspired me to get to work writing!
