Howdy! Now that I've finished mine I'm trying to review the other entries in the challenge ahead of the deadline so I don't get backed up on reading everyone's stories. I figured I'd start with yours since I have always enjoyed your stories so far. This one proved to be no different!

I thought your handling of Lockhart was very well done. You stepped outside a literal approach to the challenge and used it really well to develop who he became leading up to the end.

It was also very interesting to see how despite his condition, in many ways he was still the same Gilderoy Lockhart. That made me almost...ALMOST...feel for him when the fans dried up on him and particularly when his last fan died.

I thought you also did an excellent job of showing the range of his behaviors on different days and how it changed over time. The touches about constantly re-reading his own work, clinging to the pieces of fanmail (especially his name), and his conflict about all of it were powerful.

Good luck!

Author's Response: Hey there! It's very nice of you to go around and read the other challenge entries. I wish I had enough time to do the same :)

I'm pleased to hear that you liked Lockhart's characterization and found a hint of pity where it was difficult to feel any before based on just his canon storyline. I definitely tried to emphasize the parts of him that we all remember while also showing that there could be more depth to him.

The details are always the best part for me in writing and I'm so happy you enjoyed them. Thanks again for this lovely review!
