Team Blue for the win ;D I've never read much about Lavender, but I've always wanted to, so it almost seemed fate to see this here ;)

Right from the beginning I could tell this was about her and Ron with the Beauty and the Beast analogy, and it's rather fitting that you used, as it explains her and Hermione's opposing positions so well.

My sympathy for Lavender grew even more when you referred to how she used the make up to cover her up, and you could tell she had a lot of deep lying issues. It was further enforced by her almost wishing that she was dead. It was so tragic to see that death would be preferable to her.

Then the ending was brilliant. I think the part about her 'dribbling lips' was perfect, I don't what it was about it, but it carried so much power.

I'm so used to writing in third POV, but I really enjoyed reading this in first and I hope I get to see more of it :D It was a really great one-shot though, and it makes me think about her in a different way.

Author's Response: Hello Kiana :)

I'm happy you picked up on the brief reference to Ron. It's funny for me to think about things from Lavender's perspective; it's like she and Hermione switched places, one going from being an ugly duckling to a powerful, beautiful, confident woman, and one slowly fading away and becoming less than human.

Lavender trying to cover herself up is a major theme here, as you mentioned, with the potion and the make-up and whatever else. Her comment about Greyback was meant to show that she'd rather be a full werewolf just to know who she is, rather than having to exist in limbo the way she does in this state. It is sad to think that she's become so desperate.

I'm happy to hear you liked that last line! I felt like it was the perfect way to wrap this up, to hint that Lavender's perception of herself while under the influence of the potion is not really real.

Thanks for your sweet review :D
