Hello wonderful, talented girl!
For your first slash fic I thought this was just so beautifully subtle, which really suited the way it was being told through Theodore's emotions - the focus was on their relationship, friendship/love as two people rather than two men, if that makes sense. It wasn't like the focus of the story was the fact that they were gay, just more that they were so close and understood each other which was really lovely and I hope gives you the edge in your competition. ;) Like, there was an allusion to the difficulties of their friendship as seen by other people, but that could just have been the slytherin/hufflepuff divide, depending on how you read it. It just seemed fitting because that wasn't what mattered to Theo so it wasn't the center of the story.
I love the structure of the snapshots of their friendship - the way you wrote the moments really worked because they weren't over detailed or over explained but like fleeting moments but you still got the sense of their relationship ♥
I love theodore nott as well, he's always been a bit mysterious which is great for creating possibilities and I like this one, as sad as it is!
But yeah just overall, so beautiful and the moments of their lives structure works so well in telling the story of their relationship whilst also giving it this nostalgic, personal, reflective feel.
GO ERICA and go me for actually writing a review no entirely in capslock. you must be preti special. xxx

Author's Response: Yay Helena! This review makes me so happy, because this is all exactly what I intended with this story. I didn't want to directly point out and shove it in everyone's faces that this is a slash fic. Because I think that cheapens it a little bit. I mean, if it were like Theo/Pansy or something, there would be no need for that, so I really wanted to get across that there was no need for that in this fic either, just because it's slash. I wanted their relationship to develop like any other would. And I guess in my head, they were a bit secretive with their relationship, but it had a lot more to do with the Hufflepuff/Slytherin divide you mentioned, rather than with the fact that they were gay. Which I think makes more sense, I guess. I mean people probably weren't fully accepting of them as friends because of the house divide, so they wouldn't really be out in the open about the true nature of their relationship.

Snapshot writing has become a serious vice of mine. I love writing one-shots like that. Because it's sort of like getting all the big information from what could be a novel and putting it in a short fic. I mean, I could have written a novel about them and used all of these little snapshots in it. But I like this format. It's fun.

Thank you so much for reviewing, Helena. You know your reviews totally make my life worth living and stuff. :D LURVE YOU.
