One of the best written one-shots (or fanfics in general) I've found on this site. It didn't really strike me as belonging to the Harry Potter realm, but not all stories need to be saturated with magical terms and spells. I think you did a good job at trying to get inside Helen's mind (unless you were basing a different character off of Helen) and figure out what she would have been thinking while in Troy with Paris. I think you ended it at just the right moment as well and that it was good that you didn't try to stretch the ending out more. It seems very natural and realistic.

Overall, very good job. You should be very proud of yourself for writing something that melds beauty, confusion, and desire so well. (Plus, mythology is a personal interest of mine and I rather enjoyed reading "The Iliad"). :)

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I think you should do more reading if I could ever match up to the legends that are on HPFF, but it's awfully flattering of you to say that. I agree that this isn't exactly Harry Potter fanfic per se, but the thought process, to me, is what counts, and I always approached the story with the idea that these were canon characters. I wasn't writing exactly about Helen and Paris, merely relating the characters here to the mythological ones, but I'm glad you liked it. And I'm also happy that you mentioned the ending; I never know when I'm ending something and have to keep writing until I've hit the right line.

Sadly, I've never read The Iliad, but intend to. I did like this piece, but after this, I'm much more partial to it. Thank you very much for this lovely review! :)
