-BookDinosaur- here for the Ravenclaw Review Battle!

I really liked this one-shot. I haven't read many stories about Quirrel, but I think you managed to pull it off, although I can safely say I didn't even begin to suspect it was Quirrell until you told us. Whoops?

Speaking of Quirrell, I think you characterised him really well, and I love how arrogant he is, especially towards the end, where he says that he's 'master of his own destiny' I found it really ironic and quie amusing.

The words that you had to stick into the story were really well done, I think you managed to incorporate them really well. It really helped me to see all the imagery and description in my mind.

The conversation with the barmaid was really well done, I loved how she was so stubborn but then underneath it all, she was in so much pain.

Anyway, all in all, a really great one-shot I really enjoyed reading/

Author's Response: Thank you for your review!!

The whole reason that I picked Quirrel was because he is a rather different character, and he hasn't often been explored, from what I can tell. It's totally okay that you didn't realize it was him until he was revealed--in a way, I meant for that to happen, though it began as a rather happy accident. :)

Thank you for all of your lovely comments about Quirrel. I found it ironic as well when I wrote that line, because we all know what happened to him. I'm glad that you thought the words were incorporated well, because some of them presented me with quite the challenge! The barmaid, though I did not name her, has a history all of her own, and I am so glad that you saw her pain from the past through the conversation. :)

Thanks so much!!
