Ariel - this was absolutely wonderful!

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get to it, Im just grateful for the aforementioned nagging, because this was really great. Aside from the very original subject matter,I have never read a Rita Skeeter fic before. Your characterisation was perfection. You really did get into her head - who would have thought that Maddie, lover of fluff and bunnies would have conjured up such a story and have related entirely so well with the devious Miss Skeeter.

I had to laugh when reading the opening line of the article, you captured the J.Kness so well.

writes Rita Skeeter, an attractive, twenty-something journalist who, after just a few short years in the industry, is already renowned across the wizarding world for her hard hitting stories that prove that everyone has a skeleton or two locked in their closets.

Such modesty! I loved it. I also felt that in your capturing her youthfor want of a better word, you have shown why she is the way she is later in canon. Her thoughts in regards to two wrongs not making a right, but one wrong needing to be punished was a strong undercurrent within the story.

Your writing and turn of expression show extraordinary clarity and strength, as I have come to expect from you.

Truly, my dear you do not write nearly often enough. Thank you.

Note: Now in terms of the results of the challenge, I had intended to notify everyone today but unfortunately have just run into a little blip along the way one of the entrants. As such I cannot post the results just now (it will likely be a few more days in which case I shall PM you all) but I did feel it was time to post all of the reviews. The reason for the delay is that I wanted to post all reviews at the same time for fairness really… that and a pinch of procrastination.

Author's Response: I loff you Bambi. Seriously. *blushes insanely*

Pfft, no worries about the delay hun. I wouldn't have been one to complain about it anyway, seeing as I was a late submission. xD After writing this I actually searched the site and found that there is a shockingly sparse number of Rita Skeeter fics out there. Methinks I should therefore maybe take it upon myself to write some more about her... xD

*squee* I'm so glad you liked her characterization. It was so totally out of my realm. I know, there were no fluffy rainbows and sunshiny happiness, which is really an enormous feat in itself... (and just for the record, whilst I may love the bunnies, they most certainly don't love me back after I've shaken the plots out of them :P).

*grins* I managed to subconsiously develop an undercurrent? Oh my English teacher would be so very proud. And yes, I probably should try and write more often, but I've resigned to the fact that 90% of the time I'm just too damn lazy. I think you might just have to keep coming up with more brilliant challenges to motivate me. xD

And I'm the one that should be thanking you for this wonderful review, not the other way around! *huggleglomps* You put so much thought and detail into them that it always makes my day. Glad you liked it, and great challenge, Kylie. :D
