And all the people say,
"You can't wake up, this is not a dream,
You're part of a machine, you are not a human being,
With your face all made up, living on a screen,
Low on self esteem, so you run on gasoline."

Using inspiration from the song Gasoline by Halsey to give new layers and motivations to Colin was brilliant. I really felt his angst.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I had never listened to her songs before writing this story and when I did, I became a fan. Thank you for reviewing. : )

Different, but to be quite honest I did not like it and it was unfair to the creevey's from the book. Sorry.

Author's Response: That's quite alright. There's no need to be sorry. I can't expect everyone to be gushing over my stories, can I?

This is a great piece - it reads almost like prose poetry, particularly the beginning. Your Colin Creevey is a character of a completely different intensity to the one we see in the books, but your build up makes the final actions believable. I particularly like the idea that, as a Muggleborn, he would use Muggle weaponry in the Wizarding war; I think the lack of connection between the two worlds is something that bugs many fans sometimes! This story was a wonderful read and I hope we'll be seeing more of your writing here again soon!

Author's Response: Oh my lord, thank you so, so, SO much for calling it great. I always have a headcanon that Colin's ever joyous facade didn't let anyone ever see his true nature of a broken and bullied boy. Hermione couldn't have been the only tormented muggle-born. There was bound to be someone else. Colin with his obsession with Harry was most likely an easy (and deceptively harmless) target. All this led him to do something dramatic in the final battle, hence the Muggle weaponry. I am really glad that you liked the idea. Once again, thank you so much. I am really flattered.

I have read and reviewed a lot of fanfic. I liked this because I thought it was a creative idea and was well written. I'm not really sure people thought he was mad but this is your interpretation and that's what counts. I also think it worked because it was short. Any longer and you would've lost my interest. But, that's me--I always have preferred more dialogue. This was an excellent first story. I'll be interested to see if you write more and whether it takes the same form.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and taking an interest in my writing. I really appreciate it. I portrayed people around him perceiving him as 'mad' because of his obsession with Harry. It is something unusual (and irksome) for them. Thank you so much for calling this an excellent first story. You have heightened my writing spirits tremendously. Now I am bound to post more.
