I read this one-shot ages ago and I can't believe I forgot to review! I'll do so now :D

This is such a refreshing piece, I don't think many people write about Lockhart. I love how you've incorporated all the canonical aspects (from Lockhart's love of lilac, his unhealthy obsession with his hair, his tendency to take credit for things he hasn't done), it's all very plausible!

What a nice touch, adding that he's friends with Bertha Jorkins. From what we know of both characters, they sound ideally suited to be friends!

Poor James! "Lily of the Valley" haha! Like father like son, it seems as though both Potter boys have the grudge against Gilderoy!

I love the last paragraph: "I bet that in a couple of years, once I'm famous and wildly successful in my career of saving people from distress and making their hair look beautiful, if I tell someone I was Head Boy at Hogwarts they'll believe me. Maybe they'd even believe that I saved people from Acromantulas and met hags on holiday." What a brilliant use of foreshadowing :)

This was such a lovely insight into the obnoxiousness of Lockhart's character. Thank you for all the laughs marauderfan :D 10/10

Author's Response: Thank you :) And I appreciate you saying it's "refreshing" - it's nice to hear that.

I thought Bertha seemed like a natural friend for Lockhart as well. (And Gladys Gudgeon, the girl who likes him in this story, is also a canon character who wrote fan mail to Lockhart in CoS. I thought she'd have always been an admirer, lol.)

Thanks for your review!
