You had me at the first line!

Honestly, that first sentence and the rest of that first paragraph had me in stitches and I was immediately hooked. I knew when I was reading a one shot about Lockhart that I was in for some laughs but this completely exceeded expectations and I'm so glad I came across it!

I don't think you could have portrayed Lockhart any better than you have, he is absolutely perfect here. I can't see me ever reading another Lockhart story and it being as good as this. You've got his character down so well. I want to hug him, to be one of his followers but at the same time I want to hex him and his perfect hair! I love that you have expanded him; the hair potions, the discovery of his favourite colour, it's nice to see a depth to the shallow, self absorbed character we see in Chamber of Secrets. His ridiculousness is such a key factor and you've really nailed that in this. Just mentioning the fact that he spent his time admiring his reflection with his lilac hat on whilst he was in potions is so simple but genius!

You're writing is amazing, it flows perfectly and it just makes me want to read on and on. This is truly an amazing one-shot, probably one of the best I have ever read and I am so glad that this was recommended on the forums!

Author's Response: sknd;jnhjkhs THANKS! This was such a nice surprise review! ♥

I'm so glad you thought the portrayal of Lockhart was perfect - you are too nice! When I read the books I was always struck by how infuriating Lockhart was, in a really hilarious way. And translating that into his POV means that he doesn't pick up on a lot of things, like others' perceptions of him.. which was pretty fun to write. I'm not really sure he has much depth - he's still quite shallow and self absorbed! But you're right, he certainly doesn't see himself that way! ;)

I'm thrilled that you liked the story so much! Your review was such a pleasure to read. Thank you!!
