I've just finished reading your story and decided to leave my review to the end.
Your story is amazing! You have the same rhythm in your writing as Jo and I feel like I could easily being reading something she wrote.
I love your take on Oliver Wood. It's how I imagined him to be beyond the books. Hermione is written entirely in character and you gave her something extra, too. I want to say 'vulnerability', but I'm not sure that's what I'm looking for.
All the characters we know and love are portrayed beautifully (I prefer your Percy to canon Percy. He seems a lot more balanced) and your original characters seem like canon.
All in all, great job! I can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It\'s aways so cool to hear that new people are finding this story, and instead of being daunted by it already being thirteen chapters long, try it anyway.
Thank you for the comments on my original characters (and Percy - I like him much better this way too, and after the events of DH, he may not be too far from canon!Percy anymore either *g*) Writing OC\'s is intimidating - at least to me, so I really appreciated this support :-)
What an intelligent, well-written story. "Well-done" is an understatement. I almost forgot I was reading fanfic for a second. :-) I can't wait to read whichever story you write next.
Lovely! Can't wait to read more!
