I'm not a fan of this movement, but what you've written really goes perfectly with it!!

AHHA! I WAS RIGHT ABOUT THE HAT. WOOT. WOOT. WOOT. (does a little dance because it's about celebrating the little victories).

The very end of the song is almost a sort of celebration, and that's sort of what this is. I love that the Hat is so proud of what he is (I guess I've assigned it a gender). I also really love that he was the speaker! It makes such perfect sense!!

So, some general notes about all of them:

I think you did a really good job at showing the traits of each person without it being super obvious and cheesy and cookie-cutter.

Your writing style is really fun to read, and you're very good at the flow and pacing.

I think that you captured the mood of the entire song extremely well. You should be very proud of this.

I thought I'd make this longer... but I honestly don't know what else to say. So I'll leave you with another thanks for entering my challenge. Results should be up tonight!

Author's Response: I can only hope that your feelings about this movement didn't also transfer over to your feelings about my writing. :)


Yes, I thought of the Hat as a "he," too! (Darn A Very Potter Sequel for making me think that way!) But as I was writing these characters, I thought that the second person PoV would lend itself nicely to an inside voice narrating everything. And since it corresponded so nicely to the five movements of the song, I went for it!

Funny story: The woodwind faculty at my school play together in a fantabulous woodwind quintet, and I've come to see each of them as a Founder: clarinet professor=Slytherin; flute professor=Ravenclaw; horn professor=Gryffindor; bassoon professor=Hufflepuff; and oboe professor=the Sorting Hat. And it totally works, too, because the genders all match up (except that the oboe professor is female). So there's a tangent for you! But they were sort of an inspiration for this story, hahaha. :)

Thank you! I didn't want to give each of them the same exact story because that would be BORING. I had a lot of fun coming up with their backgrounds!

Awww, that's sooo nice! I worry a lot about how my writing flows, because it seems random sometimes. :)

Yes, I am quite proud! Thank you so much for challenging us with this challenge! I had immense amounts of fun writing the story, and I hope that you do an Instrumental Song Challenge 2.0 one day! :D

Ah, when you wrote this, you had just reviewed four other chapters. That's enough to exhaust a person! Thanks for being so wonderfully dedicated in writing all of these thoughtful comments! :D
