Hey, this is well done.
It was wonderfully descriptive, and I enjoy those stories where you can see within someone's mind, and really be able to fill their shoes.
This story is a great example of, in the words of Atticus Finch, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-until you climb into his skin and walk around in it"(Lee 30).
Although there were a few nitpicky plot inconsistencies (such as that Hepzibah Smith was poisoned not murdered in a bloody fashion), and that Voldemort never seemed to me like the romantic type, I enjoyed your details and anecdotes that mark careful reading and amazing perception.
Author's Response: I do appreciate you taking the time to review my story, and I am sorry it took me so long to reply back. Thank you for reading, and I do appreciate the concrit, and that you liked the story overall. :-) It makes me very happy to know that.
This is very well done; you should be proud of yourself. I have just read through all of it and I hope you update soon.
Cassie, this is amazing. I'm afraid I can't write reviews at the length that you do, but I'll make the most out of this short one. I'm really not much of a person for romance fics, but this one is an exception. It's written at an angle where one can go just about anywhere, so congratulations on finding a good direction to go in. The ending of the story carried kind of a feel of rising after a fall, that Andromeda was able to come out of an abusive relationship and find a healthy and loving one.
Once again, remarkable job! ~Twitchy
Author's Response: Oh, thank you for this lovely review! I'm really glad this story could be an exception for you :) Don't worry about the length of a review; I write yours for my monthly requirement for SPEW (Society for the Promotion of Evaluations for Writers) on the forums, so that's why mine are so long and in-depth! Again, I'm glad you liked it and thank you for your kind review! - Cassie
This is brilliantly written; it portrays Tonks and Bellatrix better than a lot of the other versions I've read. I rarely get emotionally involved in stories, but this one I found myself connected to. I felt Tonks's pain as she heard about Remus's death and though about how poor Teddy would have no parents to grow up with. This was a great piece where you do not need a ton of physical action to give the reader go through an emotional roller coaster as they read.
Author's Response: Oh wow, thank you very much. I'm really glad you liked it – it was my first time writing both of those characters (Bellatrix and Tonks), and also my first story in a darker genre, so I was rather nervous about it. I'm especially really happy that it made you feel with the characters, as this is exactly what I wanted to achieve.
Thank you so so much for leaving a review! (by the way, great taste in bands/movies/shows ;D )
This is a unique take on young Tom's emotions and mind; it is flowing and believeable. The last paragraph is particularly moving.
However, the grammar and spelling errors were very distracting; I suggest you revise.
