Hello! I saw your status post and I never see stories about Sybill Trelawney so I had to stop by! :)

I liked this, it was cool how you gave Trelawney a bit of a back story and how she ended up where she did. I don't recall if Trelawney in Ravenclaw is canon but it fits so well, I could definitelg see her being the kind of aloof student who spends her time drawing or else looking at astrological drawings in a corner surrounded by books!

The part about her Nanny was really sweet, and then sad at the end :( But I like that it motivated her to go back to her childhood dream and the kind of innocence of before the war, and maybe loosen up on the Divination a little haha. I hope she did end up getting a purple house! :)

Author's Response: Hello!
I looked around for everything we know about Trelawney's backstory, and it's not much, so I really got to have fun with this. I was never going to put anywhere other than Ravenclaw. Since she spends so much time alone up in her tower as an adult, I wanted her to be the same way growing up, and being an only child with parents who aren't incredibly involved in her life followed by spending all her time up in her dormitory fit that.
I wanted to make sure I showed how hard her Nanny's passing was on Sybill because it would give her a reason to start drinking and become to cooky professor we know from JKR. I'm so glad you saw that relationship come through!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review!
Cassie :)
