Hey there!

Let me start off by saying that it was so so hard for me to choose which story to start reading from your Author's Page. When I first opened it and started reading through all of your summaries I was shocked to find that I loved so many of the themes you wrote about. It was almost too hard to pick one!

On to the actual review. I have to admit this is a fabulous idea. Every time someone writes something Pre/Post-Hogwarts or just during the period of the First War I feel like offering them eternal candies! I feel like a two years old. I loved the ominous feeling of this first piece. It's the perfect beginning to introduce us to the events that will shake all the Wizarding world and not only. Even if we didn't know, in part, what was about to happen I think you would have managed perfectly well on your own to convey the dark clouds of war that were starting to form: McGonagall's concern that the Houses were starting to divide and experience internal conflict was one of the major signs.

There's always something blood pumping about preparations for war. This short entry is just the introduction to it. I hope to see more of it!

The characters. A very accurate depiction of Dumbledore and McGonagall you pulled of here. I take my hat off in front of you for trying and succeeding. Especially Dumbledore. He is one of THE most, if not the most, difficult character to write for me. There is always something about him that eludes my writing. Even if I would have used other words (that goes down to personal style to be honest), you captured his essence in a stunning manner. Kudos to that.

All I can say is, I cannot wait to explore more of this Short Story Collection because I have a feeling it's going to be a great ride!

Author's Response: Hi Debra!

Aw, thank you. It always makes me so happy to hear that my summaries are so interesting.

I love the idea of First War fics and this was just begging me to be written. I definitely wanted to give the prologue a darker feel because of the atmosphere of the war and what I was writing about.

I hope you get a chance to read more of this. I think you'll enjoy it.

Dumbledore and McGonagall are notoriously difficult to write, I think. To this day I don't think I could ever write Dumbledore again, haha. McGonagall is getting easier the more I write her. But thank you for your compliments.

Also, thank you for your review. It was really lovely. :)
