Review:Rumpelstiltskin says:
Would you believe that I was kidnapped by an army of Acromantulas who prevented me from reviewing for so long? I escaped, though. I wont get into the details because they're irrelevant, given I'm a cunning Slytherin. True story.

You never cease to amaze me with the endless amounts of beautiful imagery. "The story lingers at the edges of storybooks, in the whispering softness of the first snow, in the eyes of the storm bringers who tread the cracks between love and hate." Honestly, how do you read something like that and not get pleasant chills? I could go on forever with all of the lovely lines in this, but I wont; there isn't enough room in the review box.

The elegant descriptions aside, the story itself is very interesting. I tend to love on Founders era stories because of all of the historical background information. The sheer amount of that information in here is remarkable compelling! I love it! That includes, but is not limited to, the idea of the Black Plague.

Also, the voice of the narration reminds me of an old-time-y storyteller. It reminds me of my mother telling me bedtime stories when I was young, so I'm really just loving all over this.

Since there are no wizarding schools, young witches and wizards were taught by their parents, thus Muggle-born witches and wizards don't receive proper education. That's definitely an interesting, realistic concept that I hadn't previously considered.

Then, there's the concept of the Muggles forming attacks on witches and wizards. Gah! This story just has so much...so many wonderful ideas! This. Is. Absolutely. Brilliant!

Author's Response: Hi! :) What, I think that's a perfectly good excuse (though a little frightening). I'm just glad you're here at all! :D

Wow, thank you! I'm glad you got pleasant chills, that's just what I was hoping for. I'm happy to hear you liked the language and images here, I really wanted to bring the time and the town to life.

I love Founders too, and being a bit of a history nerd wanted to include many details and facts. I'm glad you found it interesting and detailed.

Ah, I've had a few reviewers say that! While other stories I'd written before this were mostly in first person, I wanted to explore a new kind of storytelling and voice. I'm glad you liked it! :D

I'm glad you found it reasonable! I have a lot of doubts and ideas about how reliable Hogwarts education would have been through the years, and thought it would make a lot of sense that either Muggleborns would not be educated at all, or often would just hide their magic from everyone for fear of being persecuted.

Yes! I figured that the attacks would be a good addition to tie Hamlin's fate into the HP universe and show how tense things would have been at the time! :)

Thank you so much for the brilliant review, it was so great to hear your thoughts! :D I'm so thrilled you like the story so far! :)
