RRT!

I keep on seeing you post a new chapters, and Iíve been meaning to read it as I love the founders era, so now I have an excuse!

Iíve never seen the Mirror of Erised appear in fan fiction before, which seems odd considering what a cool object it is, so I thought it was great that you included it here. I found it really interesting to see how much this objects affected so many people so much. Though it shows what you desire, it makes people desire it a lot as well.

I liked that the narrator was ambiguous through this first chapter, and it was a nice surprise to find it was the Bloody Baron, as Iíve never read much about him. I thought it was interesting that he saw Helena in the mirror, as given both of the deaths I wasnít entirely sure how much they really loved one another. I thought it was a nice twist, as it showed how much love and desire can get conflicted, resulting in death.

I thought this was a great start to the story, as itís really intriguing as it started in the Hogwarts era, and Iím guessing it goes back to the Founders era. Iím off to read chapter 2, as this has caught my attention!

Author's Response: Hey Kiana!

I'm so glad you love Founders era, because it really is cool once you get into it :)

Yeah, I thought the Mirror would be particularly tragic for someone with so many regrets who fell so far away from the life he planned for himself. You're right about the reciprocal relationship there, with the Mirror holding someone's desires and causing them to desire it in a way.

I love writing the Baron, at times more than Helena. I've worked hard to make him more pitiable in this story, though he and Helena definitely have their flaws. It was also important to me to explore the complexities of their relationship, since there is a definite possibility that they had once been in love.

Thanks so much for your kind review :)
