Hello! I'm Danielle. I'm also a proud Ravenclaw and SBBC-ling (and newbie SPEW-er).
Also, almost all of my fics were written pre-DH so please check the date...I swear that I wasn't just ignoring canon :)
By the way, from the summary, this kind of sounds like a good book I read, called Speak.
Author's Response: I\'ve never read that, but I\'ve heard of it.
By the way, I would read Speak if I were you. I bet you could get inspiration for your story from it, and it's really good.
Author's Response: I will if I get the chance : )
This is the first bit of poetry I've read from you, and I have to say: Nice!!! Love it so much! Almost as much as the actual fic...scratch that, AS much as the actual fic. Your word choice is wonderful, and I love the rhythm to it. My only critique is that a few lines don't seem to quite pertain to what the narrator is saying...ah well, still really brilliant.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it. And the thought of it being AS good as the story means one of two things... a crappy story or a good poem... I\'ll take the second choice. :D
Read DracoGurlForever's review and would like to add that Avalon eats meets in front on the couch a lot. I guess I should have suggested you put that Georgia! Sorry!
Gah. MEALS. Sorry, I can't type.
Here I go again...
You must be so sick of me!
*screams* OMG YES!
Author's Response: Hehe
WOOT WOOT! I'm so proud!
Author's Response: You should be, you brilliant beta!
I don't believe I've left a review for this before, hmm...sorry about that. Anyway, I just love it, highly entertaining! Very clever too!
By the way, I caught that line about the wine--its from The Princess Bride, isn't it?
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Yep, the line\'s from the Princess Bride. I love that movie!
An intriguing beginning! I love time-travel fics because I think the ability to explore so many different possibilities is fascinating. I'm excited to see the full details of the battle and how it all ended. I love your clear, concise style by the way. It's not frilly, if you know what I mean :-) It actually reminds me of the books!
Author's Response: HI Danielle! I'm so glad you came to read this story! I know it's AU now but it's still one of those stories that is close to my heart so I'll be interested to hear what you think of the rest of it. I'm glad you enjoyed the beginning. I think time travel is pretty fascinating as well, but I will tell you think story was TOUGH to write and keep straight. I had to write it to the end to make sure it fit with the beginning before I started posting. Thanks for the review!! ~Gina :)
Again, this is very captivating. Exited to see where it goes next!
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you continue to enjoy it! Thanks for another review, it makes me so happy to know someone is reading this story after so long! ~Gina :)
Great chapter. I love the way you write action--very simply, but it still packs an emotional punch.
Author's Response: Thank you! This action was tough because of the two timelines. I clearly remember how difficult it was, lol. I'm so glad you are enjoying it and hope you like the rest! Thanks for reading, I really appreciate the reviews! ~Gina :)
*major squee* I'm so happy for you Kay!
Author's Response: Thanks to you too! Thanks for the review!
HI CHRISSY! *waves* I just read this, and I think it's adorable! Well written, and clever! I really enjoyed how your characterization of Arthur, well done!
Author's Response: Hi! I\'m glad you liked it. Thank you so much for the wonderful compliments!
Oh! Adorable! Completely and utterly adorable! lol, I'm reading your strange reviews in the Odd Reviews thread on the forum, so now I'm definately going to make sure I put something concrit in here :-)
First of all, I loved the rhyme and the rhythm! It sounds like a wonderful, silly song!
My only two critiques:
Author's Response: Hee, thanks. I guess you\'ll continue with your critiques in the next review, right?
ACK! I don't know what happened! Anyway, my review continued...
My two critiques:
I’m not the type who clubs
The innocent to death and then
I think the way you broke this bit into two sounds a bit strange here...
Instead of bragging in pubs
Being the self-proclaimed Queen of Nitpicking that I am, it bugs me a bit how just a few lines before you used "bragging in pubs".
And because I always like to end reviews on a good note...
I really loved it, and its going on my favorites!
PS: But I do have to agree, how could anyone think less candy is more fun?! Which is a bit of an odd coincidence really, seeing as how a friend of mine has said that to me before...but I don't think she would leave a review like that! Or would she? Oh no...*goes off to berate friend for leaving review with no concrit*
Author's Response: Yeah, I was having trouble figuring out how to word that. Basically, I wanted him to say, \"Hey, I don\'t go around killing defenceless people and then later go to the pub and brag about it. No, I go around killing defenceless people and writing heartfelt poetry about it!\" That\'s good advice, though. As for the bit about candy... I had to include that because just that morning, my dad was talking about the same thing!
Kathleen! Ninth time is always the charm!
Author's Response: Obviamente! You were so right! Thank you for all of your help: from 9 drafts to 8 rejection letters, encouragement to letting me know when something doesn\'t work, you\'ve been so amazing! I <3 Danielle
KATE! is wonderful!
Author's Response: DANIELLE! thanks so much!
Oh Suzie! It's absolutely beautiful! I swear, I'm tearing up...
Author's Response: Thank you! :) I\'m so glad you liked it, and thank you SO MUCH for betaing! I couldn\'t have done it without you!! *huggles and hands over bouquet* :p ~Suzie
