Hi Harriet

I was snooping around your Author's page looking for something to reviews for the 'claw's epic snowball fight when this story caught my attention. Next Gen is without a doubt my all time favourite era, and Dominique has always been one of my favourite characters.

I like how the approach you have taken to her character is somewhat different to how most people have grown accustomed to writing her. She isn't a vain, self-obsessive fairy princess or a supporting character to the main protagonist; she seems a lot more serious and in some cases violent. It's nice to see a little change in your characterization of her, it makes her much more interesting and original.

I also really admire your use of description in this piece of writing; it was almost like poetry at some points. Usually I'd be offering constructive critisism right now, but I can't seem to find any flaws in your work.

A truly superb chapter!


Author's Response: Hey Katie! :)

Aaah! I love NextGen too! It's so good that we have so much lee way with the characters. I love taking personality/appearance traits from Ron, Hermione, Draco and the rest and putting them into new characters. IT's awesome. And Dominique is awesome too! I've always wanted to write something about her! :D

I'm really glad that you like Dom's character. The thing I was most scared about when writing this was whether people would find her a Mary Sue (my ultimate worst fear apart being eaten by the Kraken). I really wanted her to have some flaws and to be a bit more mature (you have to be when your boyfriend in murdered and you might be in love with his brother who might be his murderer).

Aah, description. The ultimate bane of my existence. Do I write too much/too little? Too much about nothing at all? I am super happy that you think I've got the balance just write... and poetry? :wub: Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!
