Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
Do you keep Dumbledore stowed in your back pocket? Or in your head, somewhere? It seems like it. I swear I could hear his voice narrating this. At the very least, there's a definite aged feel to the narrative - like someone Dumbledore's age, near the end of HBP, was telling it. How you did it, I don't know, but it's an amazing feat.

It's weird, but in a pretty way. :P The language is brilliant, extremely poetic so that it reads more like a poem than a story. This is only emphasized by the repetitive lines at the end - very lyrical.

My favourite line of all, though, was this: For you gave me lift, and I gave you gravity, and so we merely hung, suspended, unable to walk nor fly. *explodes with happiness* I love the image of it and how perfectly it suits Dumbledore and Grindelwald.

I bow to your skill. While I adore your abilities with humour and light stories, your more dramatic ones are equally amazing. :D

Author's Response: Gah, you reviewed this story too?? Thanks so much!

It makes me so happy to hear that I succeeded in really making this story stay true to Dumbledore's voice. He is a particularly difficult character to write, in my opinion. I decided that, if I was going to write him, it was going to have to be lyrical and philosophical and artsy - no run-of-the-mill narratives for him! I don't think that's how his mind works.

That line is one of my favorites, too. ^_^

Thank you again, Susan! I really appreciate it, and I'm highly flattered, hearing this praise from you, of all people!
