Review:Yolanda Yaxley the Yuletide Yak says:
This was completely brilliant! I am already so drawn in by the characterisation and plot to come (despite knowing Hamlet, the AN intrigued me as to where you will take this).

I like how the differences between Cygnus and Sirius are already so obvious. From the first scene, their attitudes to the powerless or weaker species set aside 'good' and 'bad' teams, and the quarrel over goblins' rights reminded me of one of Sirius' canon quotes: 'If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.'

I really enjoy the setting of this story, too - playing for a kingdom from inside a castle, as the decadence and power games fit very naturally with the purebloods we know, and who seem to be right at home with the prospect of becoming king one day. It was nice to see the snippets of Sirius being told to do the princely thing, though, as it reinforces the image of him as an innocent(ish) child, and seems to mark the beginning of his journey into tortured man.

and aaah! All the mtaphors and thoughts we saw running through Cygnus' mind in Scene3 were so brilliantly enticing, and it gave us amazing sight into his mind, which I just loved. I'm very glad I can read more soon!
