Hello again, gingersnape from the forums here as requested!
Once again, this left me breathless (though thankfully not as breathless as Freddy... poor dear!) because the writing is just so good, not to mention the story itself is really something else.
Plot: So far, so good. It's still a bit early for me to say much about it, with the exception of saying that I'm fascinated by it and also in awe for how well pulled together this is.
Characters: Same thing as in the previous review, excerpt his time I will sadly have smaller comments than last time. :(
Freddy: I still like her as much as I did last time, and I can feel that element of being able to relate to her growing, but also the sympathy and awe growing as well.
Remus: I really liked him, and I want to go read Consumed even more now, as I really want to know more of the back story. Anyway, I really liked how he's shown so far and am interested to see more of him.
Healer Crane: Again, creepy. I'm not sure whether he's got an ulterior motive or just likes Freddy a little to much, but I do like how he's slowly showing more of how nice he is and it's getting even more strange.
Overall, it was pretty amazing. Again. I'm stumped on CC, and spelling/grammar and pacing/flow are superb, so I don't even know if I should make a section for them.
I can't wait for more of this story,
Author's Response: Hello again gingersnape!
Thank you so much for another wonderful review! I'm so glad to hear that you are still enjoying this fic. Your feedback really means the world to me. I really appreciate all your in-depth comments, especially on my areas of concern. ^_^
I'm really happy that you still find Freddy relatable. My greatest challenge with this fic so far has been keeping readers interested in her story. Because she is so sick, it's rather hard for me to move her around or have her physically engaged in typical, everyday activities. As I mentioned before, this fic is all about internal conflict as opposed to external action and drama, which I know some readers can find trifling.
Ah, Remus! I'm so pleased to hear that you liked his appearance. He has to be my favorite HP character. I've always loved him. He and Freddy do have quite a back-story in Consumed, as you might have picked up on, and to be honest, it's not an entirely pleasant one.
Yes, Crane is a weird guy and he definitely does have an ulterior motive. However, I'm afraid I can't say anymore, I wouldn't want to spoil the plot for you. ;)
Once more, thanks a million for the great reviews! I really, really love them. Take care and be well!
