Hi, here for the Ravenclaw Review Battle!
Wow. Wow oh wow oh wow. This was beautiful, marvelous, extraordinary... Words cannot describe this masterpiece! Oh wow!
First off, I'd like to say that this is a great interpretation of Barty Crouch Jr. I've never read one so amazing as this! Normally, I don't see one quite as in depth and full or love about Barty. I find him a cold character, normally, quite like how you wrote Reg. But the way you wrote Barty, with so much care and love and hurt! And in three days! Wow.
Reg was cold and dark in this story. I LOVE writing regulus, and I normally tend to write him more loving because of the idea that he was like Sirius. But the way you wrote him, afraid and denying Barty. Wow! I just love the way you wrote both of them!
The plot was amazing. You explained everything to us, just enough, to find this one shot filling and enjoyable. Honestly, I'm flabbergasted at the beauty!
Author's Response: Hi there - thanks so much for stopping by! :)
This was something really out of my comfort zone, since I'm not used to romance or really fond of it, so I'm so so glad you liked it! Thank you so so much for the wonderful compliments! :) :)
Thank you! I haven't seen him written very often, tbh, so for me it was kinda a fresh slate to work with, you know - and I used a lot of the way I wrote him in House of Cards, too, to base it, so that's sort of how he came about, really. But yeah, he's surprisingly emotive!
Gah, me too! :) Oddly enough, this is pretty much how I tend to write Regulus, haha - the antithesis of Sirius, in way. Strange, that! But I'm so happy you liked him - and yeah, he's scared and unsure and not strong or brave enough to really go after what he wants because it's 'abnormal' and all that... pretty sad.
Thank you so so much for this review - honestly, it just made my day when I got it and I still read it over because just... wow. I can't believe it! Thank you so much! :) :)
