Review:Remus a.k.a Perelandra says:
Hey it's Perelandra from the forums!

Figured since I didn't have anything else to read to just go ahead and read yours, specially since it's just a one-shot. I'm really not a big fan of Krum/Hermione...I like them as characters but not as a couple. However, this was definitely an enjoyable read because we get to see a chapter in Krum's life that we never really got to see after the 4th book.

Your detail is amazing as your narrative making your story have a nice flow. Hermione's letter sounds...very Hermione so I'm happy that you got to portray her personality through a letter. Whether Hermione was into Krum in this story or not was something I couldn't tell...And I like that. Krum's personality also shines in this chapter...for me he's such a hard character to write so kudos to you!

I didn't see anything wrong with grammar or spelling either making your story even more enjoyable! Something about spelling words wrong just really makes a story so unreadable.

Anyway great one-shot!!

Author's Response: Hey! It was super sweet of you to come by -- again, I apologize about the mix-up in your thread. As a former review offerer, I used to get really worked up about people skipping my queue/not reading my rules, and I'm usually really good about making sure everything is okay before posting, so I'm not sure what happened with that. It's really cool of you to come by and review this anyway :)

I'm glad you were able to enjoy this even without being a fan of the ship. I suppose if you wanted to, you could just look at this like them being close friends or, as I sort of intended it to seem, like Hermione just represented all the good in the world for Krum, the contrast to Karkaroff and his ideas.

I'm glad the ambiguity of the story worked for you; one theme I tried to convey was the idea that Krum was willing to defend Hermione whether or not she returned his affections. I'm also pleased to see that I portrayed Hermione well, because I like her as a character and I don't write her a whole lot. I'm perhaps most happy to see that I got Krum right. He was a bit of a challenge, since he came across as a little two-dimensional in canon, but I think there's more to explore under that surface.

I agree -- I hate it when stories are riddled with spelling and grammar mistakes, so it's great to know that my proofreading paid off :)

Thanks again for your very kind review!

Amanda
