Iíve been meaning to come back to this ever since I originally swapped with you, itís only now that Iíve had time to so hi again :D

Ah this line Ďa killer who stalked the fallen women of the London slums sensationalized headlines, leaving a trail of slashed corpses.í If this is a nod towards the Jack the Ripper, I love you because the story about him has always fascinated me :D I loved all the other references to what was going on in that period too because they were so much fun!

I really enjoyed the perspective this story brought with the fake world within the painting contrasting nicely with the real world as it made me look at the story in a different light and that was a ton of fun to do! I think I felt that the most when the Fat Lady went to Violetís house and was without her husband, I actually really felt for her then because as painting she evidently still had feelings but the restricted mobility and the effect on those feelings was something I had never really thought about before, so thanks for including that as it was just so interesting to read!

I think my favourite part of this chapter was when she moved to Hogwarts because it was just so much fun seeing the humorous element with Dippet and Merrythought because usually when theyíre featured it takes on a darker element with Riddle obviously being the focus of those stories, but this was such a nice change. Ok, I know I keep on saying that, but it really was, Iíve just never read anything like this before and itís so much fun to read!

Sorry that this review is rather short and garbled but I really want to get to the next chapter before going to bed!

Author's Response: Hi Kiana! :) Thanks so much for coming back, it's really lovely to hear your thoughts on this story. :D

It is Jack the Ripper, I'm so happy you noticed it! :) I'm simultaneously interested and terrified by his story so couldn't resist putting it in here. I was thinking of writing a story focusing on that and him being magical, and I imagine it would have been a large issue at the time.

I'm glad you liked the contrasts between the portraits and the real world as well. it was a lot of fun to write and imagine how things would be different. She did have feelings here, it was so sad to write, and I'm glad you liked it. I found the idea of having no control over her situation just really tragic.

I'm glad you liked the professors as well - they were quite fun to write in how rather corrupt they were. :P I'm really glad you liked it and found it unique, I had such a good time writing this and I really appreciate getting positive feedback on it.

Thanks so much for the lovely review, dear! ♥
