Hey, it's Sam here, reviewing your entry for my Supernatural Creature challenge. :)
Vampires are seriously misunderstood creatures. I sound like Hagrid and I don't care, I like to think that we'd agree with each other. I'm very disappointed in the Potter/Weasley family (I hope Hagrid would agree with me on this, too). I would have liked to have thought that after everything, including a war in which Muggleborns were persecuted, they would be a little more tolerable. Willing to understand and help her, even if it took a while to get used to. *tuts at them all, especially Harry, Ron and Hermione*
I'm glad she has Hugo and I hope he's just the start, that the rest of her family will eventually come around. Kinda hoping she doesn't forgive her parents quickly, though, not after the dinner... but that's the Slytherin in me. :P
I liked the friends they met in the pub, even if they scared her near the end; they just normal people and it's sad that they have be normal in dark corners of Knockturn Alley. Luck doesn't seem so bad, like Rose at the end, I don't think he's really worth it, but I don't think he's completely evil and I hope he wasn't part of the war with Voldemort.
I really enjoyed this story, it was very exciting to read, though a little sad in places.
Thank you for entering my challenge.
Author's Response: Hiya! This was such a great challenge and I really enjoyed writing for it, thank you so much for running it :D
'Vampires are misunderstood' was definitely a theme with this story, haha. I'm proud to sound like Hagrid while sending this message! I do think Hugo would be the tipping point and that the rest of the family would eventually come around, starting with Hermione, but I think it'll be a rocky journey. I have a feeling Rose would forgive them quite easily, too, though if I were in her situation I'm sure I'd be a lot more stubborn ;)
I'm glad you liked her friends. I was kind of trying to show that it's not the end of the world if she has to leave her old life behind because she does have this new group to slot into - but at the same time, she's not completely like them because she doesn't drink from humans, so it's kind of like she doesn't have anywhere to fit in anymore. She's just that little bit different from both of these two groups of people that are the different aspects of her life, which is sad because it means there's nowhere she really belongs.
I'm glad you liked this story :) Thank you so much for running this challenge, and for this lovely review!
