Hey Apho!!

Here to review your entry for the first task. :) I think the neatest thing about this task is that while the great majority of our house's fics feature Cho battling a dragon, they are all so, so different. I find that fascinating!! I think you did a phenominal job with this bit of writing. You wove the prompts very naturally into the narrative -- at points I think I forgot that I was looking for them. :) I don't think I knew that the dragon chasing her was a Horntail until you mentioned it a bit into their cat and mouse game, and I was thrown for a moment since it wasn't listed amongst the resident dragons of the reserve, but you did /such/ a good job with the sheer action of the scene that it hardly mattered. Really, it was very well written. I do wonder if this was a real scene or if it was in Cho's head -- if it is real, I wonder why Cedric's wand is in the center of a dragon reserve and not stowed away at his parents house with his things. Very, very intriguing. I also am curious what her other two 'tasks' will be.

Gah. Such a lovely one-shot. W.W.W.W.W!!

Author's Response: Hey there, thanks for stopping by!

Yeah, I love how so many people have taken a similar basic plot (Cho versus dragon) and then turned each one into something completely different. It's pretty amazing.

Thanks! I found it pretty hard to fit all the prompts in - I kinda just flung them in anywhere I could, lol, so I'm glad you think they fit in all right! I know, I wanted to mention types of dragon - I kept forgetting if it was four or five needed to get the prompt - so I just made it a Horntail in the end. Plus, it made the action a bit more interesting, what with the spiked tail and all.

When I wrote it originally, I was thinking of it as a real scene and that she had his wand - the backstory I'd thought of was that his parents had allowed her to take it as a memory kinda thing... I dunno, you could take it either way I suppose... weird, since I didn't intend to write it that way, lol.

Thanks so much! And congrats again (although it's very, very late now) on winning!
