Hello, review tag! :)

This is very different from your work I've read, but I really enjoyed it! I've never seen Phineas Nigellus in a story before, especially not in his portrait form. He's such a hilarious and interesting character, and I think you captured his snarky and self-important essence very nicely. The formal tone matched the way the old-fashioned Headmaster would probably speak and think, so the form and style complemented the story very well.

I like the short time frame of the story, and how you managed to say a lot in a short one-shot. The brevity of the story mirrors in a way the constraints and limits of Phineas' life as a portrait. I enjoyed listening to his complaining, and it actually made sense considering what kind of a person he was.

I also enjoyed the backstories of Phineas' acquaintances! Peeves as his former assistant? Too funny! I never would have predicted that, but it made sense in a strange way that Phineas' incessant demands would have driven poor Peeves wonky. The relationships he has with the other headmaster portraits, like his tentative friendship with Edgy, was very detailed and created a full picture of his existence - so to speak. :P

Anyway, good job with this, as you can tell I really enjoyed it! :)

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for reading and reviewing again =)

I am glad you enjoyed this, it is something different from what I usually write as well! I am pleased that you think I captured Phineas' personality well, and you liked the form and style of the story over all.

Yeah I think if it had been longer it would have become slightly boring so I tried to do as much as I could in these few words. Ah I like the comparison you've made between the brevity of the story and Phineas' life. Glad it all made sense!

Haha I decided on the Peeves thing as a whim so happy to know you enjoyed it. And it is quite fun to think that Peeves became wonky thanks to Phineas' ordering around. I am also glad you liked the relationships I showed between others.

Thanks a ton!
