Hi! Maia from review tag here :D

So, my first thought about this is 'wow'. This was a really interesting view of Myrtle, somehow darker than the (admittedly few) fics I've read about her before. I really like your writing style. You said in your AN that you don't usually write in this style but I think you should! Your descriptions were lovely, but without being overpowering. You didn't get caught up in too much flowery description but used just enough to be really powerful. So kudos there! I also really like how you characterised Myrtle and brought us inside her head to see things from her point of view, and you gave us a really different view of her from what we got in the books, and it really gave me a lot of empathy for her.

My only real CC is that I noticed a few spelling/grammar errors, which kind of pull me out of a story when I spot them. There weren't tons though, and I am kinda nitpicky about stuff like that so it probably doesn't bother other people :P

All in all, well done! I thought this was an amazing look into Myrtle's very dark world, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Author's Response: Hi Maia :) I really like your name.

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! that is high praise, in deed! I must admit that I haven't read too much about Myrtle myself. But when I entered the challenge and got the quote, I sort of felt that she would fit. In fact, I couldn't think of any body else after I got the idea.

I'm glad you liked the style :) I'v started using it more and I think its more up my alley now. I'm glad you liked the descriptions and felt that I've handled it well :) it's nice to hear that to doesn't come across as being way too much.

I'm glad you liked the characterization too. I know we don't get to see much of this.

Haha, don't worry. I am too! I'm a grammar Nazi who makes typos when she's excited that she's FINALLY posted again on the archives. *hides*

Thanks again for this lovely review :) I'm glad you liked it!
