Chapter: he is cedric.

Wow! I really enjoyed it.
Was the capitalization like this done on purpose? And what for? It kind of made me feel like Cedric wasn't perfect in that regard.
Poor Cedric... Hope he is happy wherever he may be.

Author's Response: Taaaa--I'm glad you liked it. The capitalisation was done on purpose, but mostly because I like poems written that way and really had nothing to do with Cedric, hehe. Cedric is one of my favourite characters, actually, and I feel like he doesn't get enough love. (Like this poem...hehehe) Thanks for the review. Lily :)

Oh, that was cool! I really liked it! I thought you built up to the end wonderfully, and the parts in parenthesis in the middle were such a great contrast to the lines on the side. This poem was really unique and easy to read. Lovely job and congrats on the challenge! ~Gina :)

Author's Response:

Please pretend that I responded to this before six months had passed, Ginaaaaa.

I'm glad you liked it...I do as well, haha. I'm smiling at your comments about how it was easy to read, unique, all that. :) I wasn't sure about the bits in parentheses, but they seem to have made this poem a winner, so I'm glad about that. Thanks for teh review--if you leave more I'll be sure to respond to them quicker.

Chapter: he is cedric.

I loved this poem when I read it, Lily. It's so very Cedric, from the perception of Harry, and yet we know the real boy which you've conveyed in very few words.

The repitition of 'so' in the stanza's is very clever. I could hear a very definite voice speaking this as I read.

Cedric is one of my favourite people from the books to write about, and I think you captured him very well.

Great poem. ~Carole~

Author's Response:

I'm still so proud of myself when you like something that I've written, especially since your poems for the Sharp Challenge were incredibly beautiful.

When I wrote this poem, I wanted to do a few things. I wanted to (a) write another entry because Natalie told me to go for it, (b) use more imagery, and (c) convey Cedric in a different light. I'm glad I succeeded in all three.

I like Cedric rather a lot as well, and I don't think we get to see enough of him/his character. *sigh*

Hugs for the review :)

Lily, there is a reason this took third in the challenge. It is pure beauty. The imagery is so perfect, and he's so perfect on the outside . . . yet no one knows what's really going on on the inside. (If that makes any sense)

I also loved how the bits in the parentheses worked. It gave it a slightly darker feel, and I loved that. :) (You know me)

Overall, just beautiful. Beautiful imagery, beautiful last stanza, beautiful poem. I'm extremely jealous.

Have fun in D.C.!

Author's Response:

Oh my, thank you so much for this fab review *squishes*. I'm glad you liked the bits in the parentheses, because that was something I was really unsure about.

For this poem, I really tried to concentrate on imagery. At this point, I had only written my Petunia Dursley poem, in which I tried to concentrate on the actual style of Iain Sharp's poem. I wanted to convey a bigger message in this poem, so I'm glad you liked it.

I did have fun in D.C.....and with my hot viola, yo. Thanks for the review!
