Hey there! Here I am with your review! :) Sorry it has taken a while.
Alright, so I laughed pretty much throughout this whole piece. It was a quick, adorable little read, and I really liked it. The characters were all given a sense of balance and description. The rumors of Caseopia had me laughing throughout.
I also really liked how the brothers were in different Houses. It was easier to see their differences that way, and yet just how oddly similar they are. Though, I would love to know why such a bully like Cas made it into Gryffindor ;). I know they can't all be Slytherins, but yeah haha.
As for romance, it was really funny seeing the close to romantic scenes crumble into bullying, BUT, wouldn't suggesting that Cas has a crush on him add a bit of romance to it? Rather he believes in it or not? I could be wrong, and I don't completely know the rules of your challenge, but that just sort of stuck out to me.
Otherwise, you have excellent word usage, a great comedic style, very descriptive, and I enjoyed it very much. You did a wonderful job, and feel free to re-request! :)
Author's Response: Thank you for laughing at my silliness!! :)
I'm glad you found the story enjoyable, as I often think I can be a bit of a bore sometimes, with pacing of the story and whatnot. And thank you for saying that my characters have balance!! Believe it or not (and this makes me a terrible person for admitting it!), I didn't really plan out these characters before I wrote them. I just let them make themselves known to me as I wrote, which is risky at best and perilous always.
The rumors of Cassiopeia had me laughing as I was writing them--I'm glad that you laughed as well, and I enjoy the nickname you gave her, though she probably wouldn't like it. I put her into Gryffindor on a whim, just to see how she would turn out. It is my belief that not all Slytherins are bad, just as not all Gryffindors are good. I wanted her in Gryffindor to explore just how ugly boldness can be when taken to an extreme. She is brash and rude, all of the worst elements of the house of the brave. The romantic aspect that seemed to be present was only intended to be ironic--I think of her as a person who will stop at nothing to be a champion, even if it means chewing up the competition and spitting him out. As far as I know, she has no love for anyone, but I can definitely see how it could come across as such. Thank you for leading me to muse about all of this, though it might be much more than you wanted in response. :)
You are a wonder-fabulous reviewer, and I will definitely be rerequesting soon for the next chapter. Thank you so much!!
