Review:nott theodore says:
You managed to do something with this story that I was sure wasn't possible; convince me that Fenrir Greyback wasn't a total monster.

I wasn't really sure what to expect with this story but I really did enjoy it. Your characterisation of Fenrir is very effective and you seem to get inside his head in a way I haven't seen before. I liked the development of the story from beginning to end; initially I thought that Fenrir was a monster and was accepting it, yet at the end you managed to provide an explanation for his actions.

Somehow, I ended up feeling sorry for him! Of course it doesn't excuse what he did in his lifetime, especially since he knew what he was doing, but you've definitely suggested a plausible reason behind it which helps me to understand why he might have attacked so many people. You really made his character come to life with this chapter, and he seemed multi-dimensional, rather than an evil monster.

That last line "Fear was a foreign emotion to Fenrir, but in that moment, he knew it well." is brilliant and very poignant - it seems like a fitting end for him.

Author's Response: This entire review had me smiling to myself, because you got out of it exactly what I wanted you to: that the Death Eaters aren't what they seem on the surface.

I'm trying to think of an intelligent reply, considering this was such a well thought-out review, but I'm too busy being really happy.

I'm glad you like that last line; it did seem like a good ending for him. And you even felt sympathy for him! That makes me quite happy, considering that's what I was trying to evoke, while still keeping present the reminder that he did some horrible things too.

Thanks so much for this review! :)
