Hi! I'm here for the BvB review battle!

This story is absolutely lovely!

I love the way that you chose to write the story. Everything from the description you use to the voice you wrote it in is just wonderful and it all flows really nicely. I've never read a story about Slughorn, so my only real exposure to him is that brief little bit we get at the end of the HP series. I like the light you've shed on him here. The way you highlight his fascination with the "next best" student is flattering to him, and makes the reader want to prove themselves to him. He's seen it all, if he thinks you're good enough to be in his Slug Club, then you can do anything, right?

I also really love how you explained the students that went bad. It was cute, in a way. It showed that him keeping the pictures did work as a tool for remembering, and his throwing them away was very symbolic, I think. I also love how you threw in the award he bought for himself. Another great symbol of the fact that while everything was ruined, there was that one thing, that had remained a constant and reminded him that there was always a bright side, for lack of a better way of putting it.

This story was brilliant!

Author's Response: Hey Sarah, thanks for stopping by!

I think Slughorn is really interesting and he was fun, albeit challenging, to explore. I like how you feel like my take endears you to him and makes you, as the reader, want to impress him. I think what you said is exactly how he meant for Slug Club to function. Oh, and I'm happy to hear that the story flowed well, too :)

Throwing away the memories of those who failed him was definitely very symbolic of his disappointment in those students. I really wanted to end on a happy note despite the dark theme, so I'm glad that worked well.

Thank you for this lovely review!
