Review:Riddle Wood Lupin says:
Oh, this was lovely. Minerva stories are rather rare, and this was just a great insight into a would-be past. I think you pulled off her character well, you can really sense the pent-up passion and regrets and struggle over her emotions. She's got that elegance that she has in the books, but she's still bordering on adolesence, and that's a great way to portray a character. Caught in the middle (which, it seems to me, Minerva tends to be). I particularly enjoy the bit about her being a Quidditch player, seems so increadibly plausible to me.

I love Dumbledore's modesty about Gryffindor's having a better chance at winning the cup with her as the head. Such a Dumbledore thing to do. My only nitpick about Dumbledore is him referring to Grimm as Professor Grimm. Dumbledore has a habit of calling his staff by their first names, so I think it entirely plausible that he may call him Professor Grimm the first time he address him, but after that I imagine he would call him Tiberius. Or maybe there's some background that I'm not previously aware of (having not read your other story, which I should probably do, come to think...).

Grimm's a great character, from this little glimpse I've seen. I must admit I'm extremely curious about where he went and such now...I'm extremely happy that he gave back the ring. I can see Minerva wearing an engagement ring around her neck for ages and no one knowing...ha. They're both so intelligent, though, in speech and thoughts and realizations, they click. ;) The bits where they touched one another were written beautifully, you could see the passion so clearly.

Anyway, I'll stop boring you with my rambling. I enjoyed it very much, thanks for the great read! :)

Author's Response: I've fixed that bit about what Dumbledore calls Grimm - thank you for pointing that out, I forgot that aspect of Dumbledore's character. It's not a nitpick at all - I really appreciate that you pointed it out to me. =)

Thank you so very much for this excellent review! It's great to hear that Minerva and Grimm turned out well as characters and that their relationship was believable. ^_^
