I'm finally here with your requested review ^^

First of all, I must say that I can't stand U2 so I didn't recognize the song until I read your Author's Note. That being said, I didn't really get at first how the lyrics were connected to the story but later on I realized how it might have inspired you :)

I suppose it's not good to follow too closely on the lyrics, but just use them to inspire you and that's exactly what you did. So I think that you don't have to worry about getting of course ;)

Anyhow - the descriptions. You could have described the Menagerie and Eeylops more - the different animals in the Menagerie, the sounds etc etc and how many different owls there were in Eeylops' but the story was more about Rolf than anything else so it's not that big of a deal.

All in all, I quite liked this because I'm a fan of stories about less known canon characters and getting a fresh view on them :D, you did a good job with it.

Author's Response: Haha, well I love U2, so there. :P And don't worry about recognizing the song, it's the last or second to last song on their newest album, not at all something most people would know.

Good to know that even someone who doesn't like U2 didn't mind the lyrics, or even the fact they didn't follow the story too closely. I was just wondering because some people despise songfics, and if I have on up I want to know it's worth it. As for the descriptions, it's fine that you thought I didn't have enough. I want to know, because then I can add more, or make them more original, or whatever. Probably both. Anyway, thanks for the review! I love minor characters as main characters too.
