Hello! I'm here from the House Cup!

Ohh this was so sad! There was something very sparse about the narration which made it feel as if we were just getting a tiny glimpse into a character's life. It was slightlly frustrating at points, knowing so little about the situation, but it did create and interesting effect.

I was very intrigued by the beginning, and impressed at how well you managed to describe the whole scene in really not many words at all. I think that Azkaban's a really interesting- if unpleasant- part of the magical world, and I always enjoy fics that explore that a bit...

I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting an OC as the main character- I think that using one kind of added to sparse feeling I was talking about. By the end of this, I did feel very sorry for her though- putting her in Azkaban seems so injust.

The scene with her father? boyfriend? was really gripping but also horrible (in a good way!) I felt so sorry for Georgia, putting on such a cold exterior, with such a difficult life underneath. I also liked how you never actually spelled out why she whether she was abused, or what exactly, leaving it to the reader to work out for themselves.

And the ending seem so blank and hopeless- just perfect for Azkaban. The way that everybody ignored her comment about being seasick really brought home the bleakness of it all, and the last line was great- so beautifully described, but so hopeless... :(

I really enjoyed reading this!

Author's Response: Hello!

I did try to make the narration quite... mysterious, so I'm glad that came across, but I wasn't intending any frustration so I'll maybe try to revise it!
I used an OC as the main character because that's what I was given for the challenge (along with the banner, I had the character of Georgia).
It was her father, in the story, and I'm glad it was horrible in a good way :P I tried to make the guilt as ambiguous as possible by not really explaining Georgia's background.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!
