Hello! Dirtydeedsdonedirtcheap here with your requested review. I'm SO sorry for taking forever but real life has been a pain. I did get the responses to your reviews, thanks for responding for one and for enjoying the reviews! I'm so glad I could help and I hope I help again with this one-shot. Lets get reviewing!

I'll be doing a running review by the way!

Wow, I have to say I'm only on the second paragraph and I'm already deeply interested by this. The repetition makes the story almost poetic in a way. Nice job. The descriptions are also extremely well written. I can get a sense of who the 'red-haired curse breaker is' without you actually mentioning his name. My heart aches for the way Dominique is regarded.

But wait before I continue I have to say, you wanted to know if it was awkward reading from the point of view of the portrait and it isn't at all. In fact if you wrote from Dom's point of view or anyone else's I wouldn't have been as convinced by the story.

It's actually moving, the portraits thoughts. My favorite line so far is: I know all emotions shared, all feelings, all signals, everything.

Because I have never put all that much thought into the life of a portrait. In reality they do realize everything, they should know all the traits of humans because they were human at one point and because their life and their job is to really watch their surroundings.

Wow, you just keep throwing curveball after curveball at me. Honestly I can't even get through one paragraph without being amazed. The imagery! The imagery is so wonderful. I'm astonished, I can see Dom and her determination climbing over relics of another time. Another time. Just those two words create this clear image of the vault in my head. I am imagining this scene in my room, I feel like I'm in the story.

Calling her ordinary is painful to read, my heart lurches in my chest wanting to reach out and hug poor Dom.


Just wow.
I don't even know what to say and to be completely honest I have tears in my eyes and I don't understand why.

I really don't understand why.

That...that was one of the best one-shots I have ever read. Honestly my favorite one shot is titled 'Inglorious' and now 'The Mirror's Reflection' is tied with it. I just can't believe it. Well, I can but I can't...does that make any sense?

You have molded everything so perfectly in this one-shot. It is poetic. It is dark, it is depressing and extremely heart-wrenching. I have no criticisms whatsoever. Nothing. To criticize this would be a terrible thing to do.

How did you come up with this?

I can't even form coherent sentences. I'm sorry my review is all over the place but it was just wonderful. The way you really traveled through her mind was extremely believable. It was as if you examined every nook in her brain and pulled out all these things that Dom was too afraid or too ashamed/didn't understand and pieced it together one by one to create this image that this little girl would soon become. I'm not even angry that she would be the end to the Wizarding World. Or that she would love to watch her family cower at her feet. That's not what it's about for me.

Thank you so much for requesting.

Author's Response: Wow.
How am I meant to respond to that! :O
Thank you so much for this amazing review! I'm so happy that you've enjoyed it and thank you for making it a favourite story! It was just one of those things where you start to type... then suddenly you've written 6 pages! Haha!

Thanks so much
Keira :)
