Hey Ravenclaw333. Alopex here for a Snowball Fight! :P

Aw, I could just feel Arabella's disappointment! It felt very realistic the way she sat there and kept trying to convince herself that the owl was lost, or that some had to go back before being sent out again, or whatever other excuses she came up with. We humans really do that, trying to convince ourselves of something even after we figure out the truth.

How disheartening it must be to hear about all these fabulous magical things all your life, only to be crushed by the realization (at the tender age of eleven!) that you will never be a part of it. You can only watch from the side. I cannot begin to comprehend her disappointment.

The last two lines are well-crafted, in my opinion. They bring the emotion of the piece home.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review :) The disappointment was at the forefront of my mind when I first thought about Squibs--exactly how you said, that they'd be watching on the sidelines, in the wizarding world but not part of it, and I had to write about it. I'm glad I pulled it off; it's not something people think about much and I wanted to do it justice.
