Hi! Siriusly89 here from the ĎTo Kill A Mockingbirdí Quote Challenge,
Before we begin, just want to say thank you so much for entering!
The first, well Ďsectioní I suppose is really intriguing! The girl seems to be in two minds on whether she actually wants to look at the photographs or not, and itís sort of indecisive and you got that across really well!
Ha, I love it! The nosy eleven year old! I love it! I would have reacted the same way the girl did, for some reason the boy strikes me as one of those loud, boisterous people who have a tendency to break things. Ah! Itís Hugo Weasley, that explains a lot now doesnít it!
Anslee and Hugo are right messers arenít they? That memory made me smile, but it also made me a little apprehensive about whatís to follow, because this one-shot doesnít strike me as one thatís going to end with Hugo bursting into the room, interrupting her trip down memory lane so they can both skip off into the sunset!
That. Has. To. Be. The. Cutest. Way. To. Ask. Someone. Out. EVER. Hugo is such a little cutie pie, but I know that youíre just setting me up for disappointment, as the tone of Anslee during the Ďpresentí sections isnít exactly cheerful, is it? I hope nothing too bad happens, please?
The scene in the library was just more Hugo-ish adorableness, wasnít it? It was.
No, no this isnít fair! Hugo canít have died! I could have dealt with him and Anslee splitting up, or something to that effect, but not him dying! This just isnít fair! You sprung this out of nowhere. Iím rather sad now.
I thought your use of the quote was very well done, and I thoroughly enjoyed this one-shot! Well, it was enjoyable as it could be, but it was really well written, and to be honest, pretty darn close to perfect, and I just love when you read pieces like that, donít you? So thank you, thank you very much
Author's Response: Hello Sarahjane!
Anslee definitely has mixed emotions about looking at the pictures, and for good reason too! They basically dredge up all the memories she wants to forget.
I love eleven-year-old Hugo, he's just so in-your-face - classic Weasley though, isn't he? And the next scene was fun to write as well. I also loved using that sense of foreboding, just to remind the reader that this won't end up all hunky-dory. (on another note, did I really just use that phrase?)
Hugo's a cutie pie - I just loved writing about him... which really made it sadder because I knew what was going to happen to him. I apologise for making you sad, but then again, that was kinda the point, so I don't feel all that bad. ;)
"Pretty darn close to perfect" just made my day. Thanks so much for this amazing review!
