Review:Elysium says:
That was without doubt the most harrowing, horrifying thing I have ever read – which I suppose is also a reflection on how well written it was… even though it took me three attempts to get through the first part (a crippling fear of spiders will do that to a person – even if the aforementioned spider is being ripped to shreds.

In any case, it was very well written, very much in keeping with the aim of the challenge and I should congratulate you on your ability to get into the mind of Antonin – though it does not surprise me.

I particularly liked the conclusion which was especially strong – and it resonated powerfully I think – well certainly it did for me.

In terms of writing technique, coherency and purpose this was of a standard to which I have become accustomed to seeing from you… even if I was traumatised afterwards.

Great Work

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: Haha, should I put a warning on this that says 'not for those with arachnophobia?' Actually, writing a story about killing a spider is a very effective way of dealing with said terrifying fear of spiders...I think I'm speaking from exprience when I say that :P

Yes, sadly I am very proficient at the ability to enter the heads of twisted, deranged serial killer Death Eaters. Perhaps I should find out the number of that shrink D suggested...

The conclusion was written as an after thought; when I got to the end of the main story, I just felt that it needed another scene to really finish off the story in more of a powerful matter.

Thanks for reviewing and I can't wait to see the results of the comp...
