I LOVE the way that you wrote this. When I first thought of the beginnings of a love potion, I thought that it would have something to do with how she REALLY loved someone but they didn't love her back, or something along those lines. I think it's interesting how you made her insecurity about herself and her desire to have a "beautiful romance" the reason why she came up with the love potion in the first place.

Also, the added touch that she's a werewolf was rather interesting because it really spoke to me WHY she was so undesirable, so to speak. Of course, we do konw that werewolves aren't monsters and they aren't horrible and all of these negative connotations that comes with being a werewolf, but of course these stereotypes would take ages to be erased, and the fact that you wrote that she IS a werewolf really was quite an added touch that I enjoyed.

Overall, I love the way you wrote this one-shot and I just love everything about it. Great job!

Author's Response: Yeah, I felt like it would be an unexpected twist for Lavender to be drinking the love potion in order to help her really learn to love herself. I thought of it almost like a drug; she has to have the potion in order to feel comfortable with herself, in order to get through these moments. I don't know if a love potion could actually be used for that purpose, but I liked the sick sort of poetry about it.

Well, she's kind of a werewolf. She doesn't transform, but she has lingering, desultory symptoms of lycanthropy, sort of like Bill and his newfound affection for rare steaks. She's still on record from her time in St. Mungo's, though, so she has officially become a pariah, even if she really poses no threat to others. I meant for the experience to kind of capitalize on the sense of unhappiness she had already experienced in not getting anyone to love her.

Thanks for your kind review (and favorite)!
