Review:Bryarly says:
How does she know she's going to be a werewolf?

I know that in all the legends its sort of a given, you get bitten by one, you are one, stands to reason.

But she's just been told magic is real (still no real reaction other than; I see it, so it must be), and that she's been bitten by a werewolf (and I'm still lacking in some reaction over the other three turning into animals as well)

So why would she just jump to the conclusion that everything she knew as a story would also be true, it stands to reason that if magic turns out to be real, surely you ought to question everything else you've been holding as folk-loric-legend/true.

I mean, from what I see and how she internalises everything I like Holly a lot, but there's not really a lot to like. I need character development; so far all I've got is a shockingly clear head, no shockingly incapacitating amounts of pain after a werewolf attack and a tendency to flare up at the slightest antagonism. The last I'll accept could just be a reaction to the current situation she's in, but compared to her lack of reaction at most of the other, slightly more pressing situations, I'm not really sure.

Still, I'm not quitting on it, this has a lot of potential.

8/10

Author's Response: Holly saw the animal, got bit by the animal, found out it was a werewolf along with the existence of magic. It was quite the load to be dumped upon her, but it fits with the legends and such.
She never did see the other three turning to their animagus forms so that question never occurred.
Holly's questions are mostly answered as she works her way through Remus' bookshelves.
You seem a great philosopher Bryarly. I like the thought of more skepticism on Holly's behalf.
Thanks!!
