Aww, I really enjoyed this!

It's a cool take on the prompt - I can totally see a professional athlete who's been battling serious injuries losing the support of many of the fans for that alone, let alone taking a swing at another player. And I thought that Oliver's agent was right on the money - yeah, little gestures and photo ops really can help win fans over. They're very fickle.

And I loved how the photographer, who's clearly used to this sort of thing, knew it. I appreciated how you didn't just rehash the Rita Skeeter trope - the reporter certainly resembled her in some ways, but she wasn't a driving force in the story or a major part of the dialogue.

Also - I love your prose. It flows so nicely, and you really manage to get Oliver's personality across through your word choice and the way you phrase things.

Nicely done.

House Cup 2014 Review - Ravenclaw

Author's Response: Thanks for your review! :D

Unfortunately, fan approval is the way stardom works. A PR campaign to save face seemed like a good option for elevating the fallen star of Oliver Wood. He's been through a rough patch and he needs to get back on track.

The photographer actually turned out to be a lot more likable than I originally intended for him to be. I started out thinking that I would make a copy of Rita's photographer, but then he ran away from me and got a sense of empathy... Silly characters. :D The reporter is DEFINITELY a Rita Skeeter-esque character. I'd like to think that Rita gained a following of young, intrepid girls who wanted to make their own names in journalism, and so it became a sort of cult... Whoopsie. :P

Thank you so much! I'm always so afraid that my prose is choppy or doesn't make a lot of sense, so that means a lot to me! :)

Thanks so much for your wonderful review!
