Hi! Reviewing this for Blackout Bingo!

This was really well written! I'm so impressed that you managed to write this so quickly for Bingo! All your descriptions are stellar, and I loved the beginning and ending. They're nicely tied together and they also fit very well with the rest of the story. Your sentences are just so well-crafted. They create a very vivid picture--one that is so clear and interesting to see.

"He thinks of the stories his father used to tell him--of grand houses with the Gaunt coat of arms across the archways, of wizards who could cower as they passed."

This was a really nice bit. It made me think about what the Gaunts must have been at some point. It makes you wonder how they got to their lowness! I think this was a nice and unique choice for the challenge. Its not often we get much insight into the Gaunts!

I was a little confused at Morfin's sorting. How is the young men staring down the table connected to Morfin's sorting? Maybe I'm just missing something?

Author's Response: Hello! :)

I'm so pleased you liked this, and I can fun whipping it up! The descriptions were quite fun to write, and I'm glad you liked how I tied them together as well. It's really great feedback to hear the scenes felt vivid, I really appreciate that!

Yes! I imagined the Gaunts losing their fortune and blaming everybody but themselves for it. It was quite interesting delving into Morfin's head, and although he's not very relatable I liked bringing him to life for a little.

Ah, I can explain! Morfin was upset that nobody in Slytherin was caring about his sorting and admiring him. Instead, the boys were checking out the girls and were far more interested in beauty and love than in Morfin and his "greatness." Kind of like Merope and how she loved Tom Sr., and how Morfin couldn't understand that because he's incapable of really figuring out admiration and love. Does that make more sense? I'll definitely go back and make that scene a little clearer when I get the chance, thank you for mentioning it! :)

Thank you so much for the lovely review! :D
