This is really cool! I never thought of how the Fat Lady was created, but you've created such a deep back story for her that I never could have imagined.

I absolutely loved the start that detailed how she was made, and the different details in her painting. Those made it seem as if the painting truly was coming to life - as it was.

Also, the sweet nature of the Fat Lady painting in contrast to the real one was quite striking. Of course, a painting usually has a subject, but I never thought of the Fat Lady as being the portrait of an actual woman - especially one such as the true Fat Lady. They are very different, but I feel as if the portrait is the nicer and sweeter of the two.

I also loved Jeremiah and how he seems utterly infatuated with the Fat Lady portrait. It seems very believable seeing as he has spent years watching his 'person' being in love with the 'person' Fat Lady, and he probably fell in love with 'person' Fat Lady, so to see him fawn over the real own was quite sweet.

I also loved your attention to detail of the era. In that time I'm pretty sure a large body demonstrated quite a large sum of money to your name, so that was very nice to see.

I absolutely loved the description in this piece and I think this is definitely one of the most original and surprising pieces I've ever had the pleasure to read on this site. You've done a wonderful job with your characters and I think that you will be able to make this story so much more than anything I've ever read.

This was a beautiful and amazing piece! You executed it perfectly, so great job!

Author's Response: Hello! :)

I'm glad you liked it! I had a lot of fun imagining what it might be like to be created as a portrait and how that experience could be described.

Ah, I wanted to make the portrait and real life counterpart have their distinct personalities. I enjoyed coming up with the original Fat Lady as well and how obnoxious she was. I read, I think on Pottermore, that portraits could act like their subjects if they were instructed to, but that they weren't necessarily copies of them so that was fun to explore.

Jeremiah! :) He was one of my favourite parts of writing this story. I'm glad you liked their relationship, I felt that he was waiting for her for a long time and plus they turned out to be quite compatible.

Thanks! :) I like writing in historical periods so I'm glad you found it realistic.

Aw, that's so lovely to hear! I'm really pleased you found it original and surprising, that's just what I hoped for. I really loved writing this story so it's just fantastic to have people respond to it positively.

Thanks for the wonderful review! :D
