Review:Beeezie says:
Poor Marietta. I know we're kind of supposed to agree with Hermione and Harry in the books, but the hex always felt a bit cruel to me. She suffered so much for that one moment of weakness when she was 16 and didn't really understand what was going on or what was at stake.

And you portrayed her predicament perfectly. I loved the idea that she'd never been especially focused on appearance before, but now she was - I can see how suffering something so disfiguring could do that to a person, because now it's not possible for her to just be herself - everyone will be too distracted by her face to take her on her own merits. I can only imagine how much worse that would have gotten when she realized that she was wrong and saw her friends die... you really covered that entire dynamic beautifully.

But I liked that this ended on a bright note. I'm sure Marietta will have setbacks, but I did feel like she had a breakthrough. It was a really positive ending to a sad story.

Author's Response: Hi Branwen!

I'm glad you're also able to see the hex in a different light. To be honest, before writing this story I'd never thought about the consequences of the hex on Marietta herself and writing this actually opened up to me how much Marietta probably would have suffered. I'm really pleased to her you liked my portrayal of Marietta's situation in my story here.

I always love happy endings so I almost always can never resist ending it on a good note. I'm glad you seem to like the same :) Thank you for reading. I really appreciate the lovely review you've left!
