|Review:||Secret Santa 2013! says:|
Hello! Ho ho ho and all that jazz, Iím your Secret Santa this year!
This one-shot, from the word go seems very good. Iíve never read something from the point of view of a girl who didnít get the guy, and who didnít, I donít knew, find a replacement or something and itís just new and different and Iím excited to read it!
The poor girl, sheís just, a mix of emotions and just confusion and hate and love and annoyance and everything in between that anyoneís ever felt when theyíve liked someone that hasnít liked them back and I just feel terrible for her, but at the same time, itís a bit like, she needs to move on. I know sheís infatuated by Sirius and this and that but really, at the end it says that she wrote this after Sirius had died, meaning it had been how long since sheíd even seen him? Twenty?
But at the end, thatís a small bit heart-breaking. Thanking him for letting her love him even though he didnít even know and just itís, yeah. The poor girl. She seems a little obsessive, but still, the poor thing.
Iíll see you in the next story! Bye!
Author's Response: Santa! :-D Does this review mean that I'm on your nice list? *knee slap* :-p
Yay! I love hearing that a story of mine is sort of immediately well received right from the top! Woot! And I'm really glad that this was a unique story for you! Back when I wrote it, I too had only ever read stories where the main couple ends up together happily too, which is exactly why I chose to sort of flip the switch for this story!
Ah, I know, I feel so bad for writing her in such a sad state! Poor thing. But you're exactly right: She's going through every contradicting emotion possible, but is finally taking her moment to let go so that she can (hopefully) move on. It's a rather pathetic situation she's been keeping herself in, but I think the fact of the matter is that some people in the world truly are unable to let go of certain things, and for Marian, letting go of Sirius - regardless of how much time has passed and how little interest he ever showed her - feels impossible.
Hahaha Obsessive is kind of the perfect word, yeah. It's funny to have this balance of feeling bad for her and also feeling like she's sort of pathetic. She's a poor little thing indeed. *pets*
Anyway, thank you so much for the great review, Santa! Also, since I have yet to find out who you are, the riddle-hunting, secret-busting stalker in me has been trying to crack the code before you unveil yourself, so I wanted to take a guess at who you might be! After a little creeping and comparing, I'm going to say that you are... Siriusly89? *ponders more* ^.^
