Jo from eHPF here, I thought I would check out your Bella/Voldy one shot to see your take on the ship.

I loved the imagery of this piece, particularly the beginning, it really set the scene. Your writing is quite powerful.

I think you characterised Bella well, though she almost seemed too innocent when standing before Voldemort, but then again love can make you feel that way.

I wasn't too sure about your characterisation of Voldemort at first, he seemed a bit out of character with the 'almost' apology and the way he showed emotion towards Bella, but I liked the way you made him suddenly snap out of it and go cold towards her as he realised he was showing weakness.

It was definitely interesting reading someone else's take on the ship and I think you wrote this piece well.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you stopped by! I'm definitely planning on reading your story as well. Hopefully this weekend. (:

For some reason, I pictured Bella as being softer when she was around Voldemort, almost tender, whereas she is maniacal and whatnot when she is apart from him. Unrequited love can really break a person down, so I see that as adding to the many other outside influences that have driven her mad over the years.

I really struggled with how I wanted Voldemort to react; I'm still not entirely satisfied with it, but I'm glad you liked his sudden realization of the weakness he was showing, and his return to the cold person we all know him as.

Thanks so much for the review! I really appreciate it. (:
