So I saw your name in tag, and I figured it would be the perfect chance to continue reviewing Resistance. But I saw this on your author page and couldn't resist! You did such a wonderful job with this; it's so well-written, as I've come to expect from you :)

I love the way you begin this story, showing us the feast from Tom's point of view. The other students looking for his approval, him admiring Walburga for her strength of will...it all seemed appropriately Voldy, and I loved it. His narration is very chilling.

I think you have a real gift for tailoring your language to fit your narrator, no matter who it is. I've noticed that you write from all different types of POVs; good, evil, timid, bold. And they all sound so distinctive. That's such a wonderful skill to have, and it's been such a treat to discover it. I can definitely learn a lot from your stories as I keep writing.

Of course, the Hat was a Horcrux! When the memory started I figured it might be. The memory itself is very well-written, but I liked the description of Tom's Legilimency even more. The image of him worming his way into the Hat's mind was chilling.

The only thing I wish I'd seen was a mention of Helga and Rowena. Surely they had a part in the blood purity issue at Hogwarts, and I would have been very interested to see how they reacted to the controversy. I think even a sentence about them would add to this piece.

Oh my goodness, you wrote a Sorting Hat song! It's wonderful, I loved it! I'm always so impressed with authors who can do that, because rhyming is completely beyond me :P

I'm so glad I read this! You did a great job with it. Keep up the awesome work!

Author's Response: Hello! :) Well I'm glad you ventured over to this story, and that you enjoyed it!

Ah, I'm pleased you liked Riddle and his strange detachment, I really wanted to get him right. I'm so glad you found him chilling and could see his sense of superiority! :)

Thank you so much for what you said about the language fitting the voice! :) Knowing that each voice sounds unique and distinct is just amazing praise, and it really means a lot to me!

I'm glad you liked the memory, and the description of the Legilimency! It's a very abstract concept so I wasn't sure how to write it, but knowing you liked it makes me feel a little more confident about it! :)

That's an excellent point about Helga and Rowena, how could I possibly leave them out?! When I edit this I'll definitely add in a few thoughts on their roles. :)

Thank you so much for this brilliant review! :D
