Aw, I'm not sure why you don't like this! I think it had a graceful and meaningful simplicity about it.

I loved the way that you briefly summarized their initial meeting and each of their years at Hogwarts. You captured Lavender's silliness and carefree spirit beautifully, especially in their earlier years. I also thought that you did a great job at adding depth to little moments in the series - Parvati developing a crush on Harry when he plays "hero," both agreeing who of the trio they would kiss/marry/kill, skipping the third task, accidentally pulling an all-nighter... this was a really lovely picture of their time of innocence.

But you also did an amazing job at showing the harder times - Lavender's first breakup, the fear instilled by the Carrows, and ultimately the excitement of finally acting on the repressive regime. It really made their friendship come alive to me in short, small bursts, and I loved it.

This was more than okay. Way, way more than okay.

House Cup 2014 Review - Ravenclaw

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I'm so glad that you liked it, Branwen. ♥

I was actually pretty nervous about using this style of jumping around and using only one snippet from each year to tell their story - I wasn't sure whether it would work so I'm so glad that you think it did!

Oh, you know, I think that before Seventh Year everything must have been really calm and pleasant for the rest of Hogwarts - the worst that would happen to them might be nasty rumours and articles in the Daily Prophet, so I think that the Carrows must have actually been a really terrible wakeup call. I'm so glad that you think I managed to show that contrast well!

Thank you so much for an amazing review, Branwen. ♥

(Also, go Ravenclaw!)
