Hi Gabbie! I'm here with your review, and can I just say I love your banner it's great!
The first line was great, as you know I don't entirely like Benjamin, but I guess hearing what he has to go through everyday, and all that prejudice directed at him musn't be an easy thing to go through at all. So I guess this helping me to sort of sympathise with him!
This line though did make me lose my sympathy for him and made me worry greatly about his mental state!
“I'm her pet and she's my master.” Benjamin retorted smartly and the girls gawped up at him and he sent the companion a sly glance. She frowned, “got an issue with Weasley?”
Benjamin is just so strange really, I don't know whether it's because he has issues about him being adopted, or whether it's because he's a Malfoy, or he's just plain weird, but it would be interesting to explore the reasons behind his actions!
I can now see why Benjamin doesn't descriminate against her as much, due to her not resembling the Weasley traits much. And this is followed through by his relatively postive comments about her parents.
Ben's thoughts were suprinsgly not that strange which was a pleasant surprise, and it was interesting to get his persepctive on everything, as it made me more able to understand him, and get a better feel for what he's going through.
I think it was a great addition to the Abandon story, as I loved reading stories like this, as it allows you to explore a new perspective, which you never imagined before:)
I will read the lastest chapter of Abandon soon, so look out for that! Kiana :)
Author's Response: Hello!
Hey, there lovely. Thanks for stopping by with this review and liking my banner! I'd had something more complicated in mind for it but it turned out very nice despite that. :3
The artists at TDA are awesome!
I don't think anyone can say that they really 'like' Benjamin, especially at this point but I'm glad that you were able to sympathize with him on some level. He's a hard character to write because he's so complex and all of the hate he gets from others because of his last name really defines him on some things.
Bwhahaha! That line isn't meant for you to worry about his mental state, though you sould sometimes. Benjamin is very sarcastic and the line about her being his master and he his pet is just a taste of that. And, I'll admit it, he's weird. He's very, very weird.
I think as I continue writing Abandon, I'll go through alot of what his issues are and hopefully you'll be able to understand him better. Added with the flashbacks in Abandon and you might actually gain to like him just a little, though I doubt it. HAHHHA. He's a hard character to actually love, though some of my reviewers actually adore him for some reason.
Its that long black braid and that smile, I think. ;)
Benjamin has known Roxanne for a long time and even if she looked like her cousins, he woudl probably still like her. She's actually nice to him and he says something like that, which explains why he can't stop seeing her. He's the sort that isn't offered much genuine kindness. ;D
And he honestly does like her parents, you'll see in Abandon if you read the latest chapter, he's got a crush on her mum.
Ben's thoughts aren't really as weird as they COULD be but they are a little out there. I'm glad that you were able to understand him better. :D
For now. MWhahhahhahaa.
I love doing companion one-shots for my stories and I think you should check out the others on here! :D Please? Hahahha.
Hope to see you soon and thanks for the review lovely! :)
