Wow that was touching... Your symbolism was extravagant and your sentence fluency was on the dot. You may not have recognized it but the part about Ginny seemed very like Anne Frank. (Anne was described as knowing what would happen to her before she left the annex) I loved it!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I appreciate your kind words. I have read the diary of Anne Frank, but I have never thought of it like that. Interesting. Thanks again. I'm flattered.;)

 

The Song of the Trees by Tinn Tam
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 276]

Summary: Damaged by the war, Harry flees everything that used to be familiar to him and instead roams the night, haunted by unsolvable questions -- what truly killed Voldemort? And what lurks in the Forbidden Forest, where the trees seem alive?

As his investigation progresses, everything Harry has learnt is called into question as he discovers the most jealously kept secret of the Wizarding civilisation.

Okay, this is probably one of the most original fics I have come across in my three years here on the site. And that is truly saying something. I find myself asking why the best works tend to be incomplete. I will be waiting in the wings for the next chapter. My heart practically broke when I saw I had reached the end of my reading.

 

Snowdrops at Dawn by joanna

I liked your story quite a lot. The beggining was a tad contradictory, but I suppose it was nessecary to the overall feeling you were trying to bring to your story. Another small flaw was the slightly confusing timeline after Dumbledore's enterance to your story. Otherwise the story was very well put together and the thought of Severus trying to redeem himself is quite touching. We all know he won't turn out as bad as he is in the end anyway. I also like you're idea of a chess set being the final Horcrux. I can just see them shattering the pieces. Overal, wonderful job dear.

 

Conceit & Contempt by callmehermione
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 17]

Summary: Draco is drawn to Ginny by an outstanding characteristic. She won't talk to him; his past behaviour is too much for her to accept all at once. She has two accusations. Draco has an explanation for each. What will Ginny decide? Dedicated to the Pride & Prejudice and D/G lovers.

I've never read Pride and Prejudice, but from the look of things, it's well worth reading.

About the fanfiction, it was a little short and pretty fast paced. It was good, and I'm willing to bet that it would've made better sense if I'd read pride and prejudice...

Great job!

Author's Response: I agree. The fast-paced part was hard to avoid if I wanted to fit all of the parts I did into the story. Thanks for reviewing!

 
Reviewer: Emily_the_Poet Signed
Date: 07/14/06 Title: Chapter 1: Explanation

Which it did. Just so you know, I picked up Pride and Prejudice just because of this fic (which makes infinitely more sense now) and it is quickly becoming a favourite.

Author's Response: Aaaaaah, that\'s so exciting! It\'s well worth reading, despite the wordiness at times. I\'m infinitely glad you were inspired!

That was interesting.. Almost funny in a way. No OOC and yet you still managed to give Ms. Norris a personality beffitting her. The only thing I have to say about er character is she didn't retaliate when Crookshanks insulted her. Crookshanks was his lazy self and yet still had the sarcastic wit befitting a half-kneezle(sp?) half cat.

Very witty, I particularly enjoyed the part where they were blatantly ignoring snape, and yet didn't get in even more trouble.

Good Job!

Author's Response: Thank you! I decided not to make Mrs. Norris that insulted about Crookshanks, simply because she was so confused, and she much have been used to it by now. Thank you so mcuh for a lovely review!

 

Fawkes' Rebirth by Trishelle

Very clever use of wrd play. I saw alliteration as well as good imagery and dialouge. The adjectives were placed grandly. You didn't wander, you stuck to your theme. The length of your passages (for lack of a better word) was rather different, but it worked in this case. I enjoyed reading it.

Wow... THat was touching... It was wonderful.

But... (isn't there always a but?) but I think you overdid the portrayal of Ginny. She doesn't seem the kind of person to cry for so long to me... It's just how I see it. If it had been any other person but Ginny I could see it. But I cant see it with her.

I liked your details however. Your style of writing is excellent, and I enjoy reading your fics.

Author's Response: Yes, I agree. I think that Ginny would get over her grief sooner than that. I wrote this quite a while ago. Thanks for the amazing review!

I dream of Hermione Granger by evanescence17
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 17]

Summary: I've seen her all this time at Hogwarts. People misjudge her as an arrogant, bossy and a know-it-all. But I know better. She's helped me out of several tight situations, sometimes at the cost of her own embarrassment. But she's the only person who treats me as her friend. She does not feel humiliated in my company as others do. She is my first crush and my last hope...

'Hermione deserves better than some lampoon like Ron' I may not know what lampoon means, but I absolutely love it phrased in such a way... (No offense to Hr/R shippers)

Anywys, the structure was good, your point of veiw didn't falter. The story flowed well, had a distinct timeline, and was fluffy, without even using Hermione,

I'm glad that neville was such an enjoyable character in your story as he's normally such a duffer.

Author's Response: lampoon actually means a clown... haha ... thanks for liking it.

This was a very interesting perspective on Cedric's demise. It put Harry in a good light as much as it made Cedric the fallen hero.

You did a wonderful description of his final moments. Yu always expect a valiant effort, but in your case it wasn't quite that. You did a wonderful Job.



Author's Response: Aww... thanks... (I wanna say \'Miki\'?)

Awww... That was wonderful.

I liked Hedwig's ability to communicate like a human and still do normal owl things, like hunt for food. You incorporated it quite nicely.

I also like the story itself. It was a nice fluffy tale, and very similar to things we all face.

Great Job!

Author's Response: Double review, lol! :P

Very good job. You used good imagery and had a good sense of rhyme sceme. The first bit was a little iffy but otherwise it made a good picture of the twins. I particularly liked the quatrain:

They hopped on their brooms,
Making ready to leave.
Behind them they shouted,
“Give her hell from us, Peeves!”

Author's Response: Thanks, Emily! You might be able to tell poetry really isn\'t my strong point but I\'m really glad you liked it. :) ~GG

This is a very interesting way to describe his reasons for putting his basalisk into the shool. I find it quite like something that could have been written by Slytherin.

It has a few gramatical errors, but is otherwise intact.

I really enjoyed it. Great Job.

Author's Response: Thanks. Glad you liked it.

I enjoyed this very much, though I've never heard of someone being 'orange from excitement'. It was interesting to see his changes as colors rather than actual change, to go from light radiant colors to darker ones. Very well done.

Author's Response: Orange with excitement is a term that isn\'t used as often as blue from sadness, but still is used occasionally. I\'m glad you liked the change in colours, as that\'s how I chose the different phrases I would write about. Thank you for the encouraging review!

I think you're fic would've been fine without the song thrown in, could be for length could be you wanted to, I don't know. I really felt for Natus, the poor thing growing up alone and without his mother. It made me sympathetic towards those in similar positions. The letter format is not unheard of, but it is rather rare as it's the first I've read. I enjoyed this fic and hope you write more in the future.

Author's Response: Yeah, but the songs one of my faves, so... Yup, he\'s a poor kid, who just wants his mum back, even if she has become a mass murderer, just because she\'s his mum. Don\'t you worry, I\'ll be writing more... about Natus, too. thanks for the review! loral

Author's Response:

I was intending to leave this as a one-shot, as Senan originally came about for my other fic, but I think now that I might update. I\'ll have to wait and see if I\'m inspired!
