Review:Elysium says:
Thank you so much for your patience – things have been a little crazy.

Firstly I wanted to say that I thought you handled Ginny’s grief very well, it’s a powerful emotion and can often be quite misrepresented. This was not the case in this piece. You also had some wonderful attention to detail and strong descriptions which is really what I was looking for within the challenge.

Just one thing I would suggest that you be weary of is your tensing, which skipped from present to past on a few occasions and made the story a little harder to track. The only reason I say this is because the quality of writing here is high and it would be a let down for such a small thing to come in the way.

In any case well done. Really wonderful work.

Cheers Kylie

P.S It doesn’t matter that it’s short. Often they can be the most effective stories.

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: Thanks so much for the very kind (and helpful) review! I'm really happy that you thought Ginny's grief was written well. She's not really my favorite character, so I'm glad I got the necessary emotions through, since I've never written her before.

Thanks for the tip on the uses of tenses. That's usually my weakness when I write so now I'll make sure to keep an eye out for easy mistakes like that.

I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for issueing a great challenge, it was very fin to write :)
