Whoa! Poor Fleur... I think she is more than a pretty face to Bill, at least. But tht is exactly what Ron saw, and Roger Davies, and all the others... How disgusting, isn't it? But your poem was just the opposite! It wasn't just a pretty face!
Author's Response: That's the exact elemt I was trying to capture; while her beauty is something for her to be proud of, it is also a bit of a moot point for her, because like you said, all Ron and Rogerever saw was that pretty face; little did they know, there is so much more to her. She's a very dynamic character, I think, and I just really wanted to capture that.
Fleur Delacour - fleur de la cour - flower of the court - and you have a poem worthy of her! Nicely done!
Author's Response: Thank you!
To be honest, when I first saw this entered in the challenge, I was seriously debating not even bothering posting. :)
It's amazing, Envy. I love how you described what J.K. characterized her for much of the books: the pretty face. I think it's very real, and you described her perfectly.All the things are beautiful, but not necessarily substantial.
I'm speechless. (And I can't believe no one else reviewed!) Can't wait to see more poetry from you!
Author's Response: Wow... wow... wow! Goodness! Ellie, you have made my day! I'm very humbled, and I can't stop smiling! I never expected such an amazing response. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Your words have won me over :)
