This is a very well written story. The essence of Gilderoy Lockhart was captured wonderfully by you! The details in this story are amazing. They really make it come alive and the details allow a picture to form in my head. With the amount of details you put in, I can get a visual in my head which is amazing.

Of course, this is a unique story as always. You tend to write a lot of unique stories and I absolutely love it. I love how Lockhart keeps a journal. It's nice to see how he's seeing things from a different point of view. In this story, how Lockhart is feeling is very important and by having it written through his journal, you got his feelings out greatly.

The change in his character is fantastic. It really feels like the canon Lockhart. Although he lost his memory, Lockhart, the one we know from Chamber of Secrets still shines through. I think that it's very important to allow us to see that he's still the same because I truly believe that Gilderoy Lockhart had a very unique personality which needs to be shown.

At the end, when Lockhart comes to a realization, I think it's a very big point. The small steps leading up to it were great. It's nice for him to finally understand and realize what he did. We don't see that side of him in the Harry Potter books. We only see the haughty, proud and oblivious Gilderoy Lockhart so it's very nice to be able to get a different view on him.

My favourite part in the story was when he was moved to the Janus Thickney ward and at the end, he asks if he was an inspiration. I think the way that Linda was all excited was very cute. We know that he doesn't get any visitors so to have someone who really likes him portrayed in the story adds a bit of colour to the story.

You had an amazing plot, the story was amazingly written and everything flowed. There were no choppy blocks which is a very nice surprise because they tend to happen with journal-like stories. I am very happy with this story and it was a pleasure to read and review! I am so happy to be able to get my thoughts out on this story because it truly was a fanastic one! Great job writing it!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review! I'm so glad you thought I captured him well- he has such a bubbly personality that isn't consistent with the way I usually write. I'm so glad you liked the details as well- I tried to create an image in your head without disrupting the flow of the story.

The journal came about as a natural way to showcase his thoughts. I don't usually write in first-person and this felt very natural.

I'm so happy that you liked the progress Lockhart made. I wanted him to develop while still staying true to himself, you know? It was kind of difficult, because the point of my story was him seeing that he's not great, even though he thinks he is. I'm glad you liked the different view of him.

I'm glad you liked Linda- I had such fun giving her a bubbly personality to provide some contrast (and criticism) from Lockhart. It's nice to see it worked out well.

Thanks so much for the huge compliment. I'm so glad you thought the story was great as a whole and that you enjoyed reading it.

Thanks so much once again for taking the time to write such a wonderful review!
