Review:The Last Marauder says:
Hi there, I'm here from the review tag.

I will say that initially I wanted to read and review your Ginny story, but then I saw that it already had so many reads and reviews (well done by the way) and there was just something about this story that intrigued me, so I went with it instead and I'm so glad I did.

I loved your little introduction, it was pitch perfect. It grabbed my attention and drew me in. I loved the idea of setting up the comparison between humans and snow flakes - the idea that each is different and unique, because I just thought it set up the whole tone of the story very well.

I thought you captured the relationship between the sisters really well. It's complex, even at this young age. You create a sense of the older sibling finding the younger one slightly annoying (or her skipping slightly annoying) and you also have jealousy in there - how Lily gets all the attention from everyone. That's a thing with older siblings, they tend to get jealous of the younger ones, because they were there first and now suddenly there is a new intruder who claims the parents' attention that used to belong to the older child, you know? But behind all that you made it plain and clear that Petunia did love Lily - you got that across without a shadow of a doubt!

I'm really interested to see where you go with this - have you another chapter coming soon?? I did always think it was a bit mad how much Petunia hated her sister in the books - then we got some sort of explanation in Deathly Hallows, but I still think there is more to the story.

I've got a great idea in this fic - definitely take it and run with it because I can't wait to see what you will have happen next! :-)

Author's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for the wonderful review! :)

I'm glad you liked the intro-I was afraid it would sound too weird or wouldn't make sense, haha.

I'm also very happy that you thought Lily and Petunia's relationship was captured well. This prologue was just to show that they never really hated each other that much back then. Because there was always a reason as to why they broke apart-Lily was magical and Petunia wasn't.

I was mad at Petunia for a while as well, but you're right, there is definitely more to their story. ;)

Again, thanks for the amazing review, it made my day! :D
