Review:Rumpelstiltskin says:
I should have been here ages ago and I'm terribly sorry!

I don't think I've mentioned it before, but I absolutely love how you've written Umbridge. I think that her eerie personality really shone through in this chapter, particularly. Her creepy smile, her reaction to hearing something that she didn't want to (freezing), and the pattern of her speech while telling Ettie that she was not, in fact, asking her to stand in for her mother were all very fitting. Umbridge, naturally, is one of those characters that I just love to hate; I think you did her characterization great justice.

Then, of course, the ensuing chaos in the wake of the Cattermole trial, from a different perspective, was absolutely brilliant. I have to say, I didn't see an alliance with Reg coming.

I especially enjoyed the ending. It wrapped things up pleasantly and portrayed an "and then life continued to happen, despite all the events that transpired" message.

Ah, this was brilliant! I'm so sorry this wasn't a fantastic review (apparently I'm in a bit of a reviewing slump) and I'm even more sorry that it has taken me so long to get here!

Author's Response: Hey there, Rumpel! ♥

Wow, thank you SO MUCH for this brilliant review! Thank you for sticking with this story to the end. And don't even worry about anything; I'm just so glad that you came back to read the final chapter! ♥

Thanks for your comments on Umbridge! She's a minor character in this story, but I still wanted her to stand out, and I was a bit worried that I was a bit worried about depicting such a memorably despicable character, whether I would get her right or now.

I'm glad you enjoyed seeing the Cattermole chaos from Marietta's perspective; I really enjoyed writing that part!

As for the ending, some things do get wrapped up (Reg and Mary and family escape, for example), but other things are left as they are, and life does continue, yes indeed. I'm glad you liked this ending! I was worried it would be a bit of a downer for some, but I wasn't really going for something huge and dramatic.

Thank you for this brilliant review, Rumpel! And thanks for supporting this little story of mine ♥ ♥ Your review's absolutely made my week!
