I'm sorry I took so long, but I honestly stared at this line for five minutes, laughing my head off: "This is the story of how I became marvellous. That's a joke. I was always marvellous."

There is nothing in that entire thing that isn't completely 100% Gilderoy Lockhart.

This was an amazing one-shot. I loved reading through Lockhart's POV, especially considering he does such silly things! I cannot express how amazing you made him, so I'm going to take this opportunity and write down only some of the best quotes. Some because if I did all it would be about half the story...

"I'll create peace and cooperation between all magical folk just through mutual appreciation of my hair-care potions."

"I must have been distracted by the sensational face smiling back at me from the side of my cauldron."

"I haven't *actually* saved any first-years from an Acromantula, but I know there are some Acromantulas living in the Forbidden Forest and I know some first-years have gone into the forest, so it sounds quite believable."

That last one really connected me to Lockhart. It's like when I'm trying to reason to my teacher about why I didn't do the homework...

Basically, you wrote Lockhart *AMAZINGLY* well. So well in fact, that he might just come to life and take credit for all your fics!

JUST KIDDING!

or am I? Mwahahahahaha!

I'm sorry...

And then at the end, when he says that maybe people might believe he met hags on holiday I was like 'Oh snap! Canon reference!' This was just unbelievable! Also, the title fits magnificently!

Anyways, this is one of the best humor things I've seen. I don't know if it's because of the coffee or because it's late, or because you're just that funny, but I was stopping to laugh almost every two paragraphs!

Amazing job! Simply marvelous!
Lo :D

Author's Response: Hi there! Haha, this review just made my day. Actually I'm quite glad you ended up reading this one from all the way near the end my AP, as it's one of my favourites that I've written, such a ridiculous fic.

I'm so happy to hear you thought it seemed like an accurate portrayal of Lockhart! I can't imagine him *not* doing silly things, and he's pretty oblivious to people's reactions so that just lends itself to absurd situations.

Heheh. Well, if I log in one day and find out my username has been changed to "GilderoyLockhartfan" I'll know why. :p

I'm so glad you liked this story - it certainly was a lot of fun to write :D Your review was hilarious, too. Thanks so much!
