Review:Penelope Inkwell says:
UGH! Rowena is the worst! I love how, for a moment, you had her complement Helena, and I was like, "Wait! Was that...did she just say a nice thing?" And then she immediately turns around and ruins it. No wonder Helena has such low self-worth, poor thing. Her mother just tears her down at every opportunity. It's like she's so in love with her own wisdom that she doesn't want to take the risk that her daughter might learn to think for herself, might learn to challenge her, or might prove herself just as clever or more so than her mother.

I'm highly suspicious of the baron. I mean, it's all well and good that supposedly he thinks women can learn and be intellectual equals, but does he really? And there are these "rumors" that are worrying. Not to mention the fact that we totally know he's a murderer, so that's a bit of a character spoiler right there :/

I wonder if she really will marry him, or if she'll run before then.

Girls conceal, boys reveal. On and on and on, I can list examples of my separate life from the other half. Which is why it makes no sense. Why keep us apart? Why keep us separate? I cannot live with someone if I do not know their habits.
--this was quite sensible of Helena. I can see why she's a Ravenclaw. Separating boys and girls never made much sense to me, either, and I think she explains the concept perfectly, as well as the restrictions on women that are not placed on men. The conceal and reveal line was very quick and clever. She's smarter than she knows.

Pull, stretch, smile, her commands from years back still have their effect on me.
--this was a good line!

I no longer do a lots of things because of you.
--it seems like maybe this should be "I no longer do a lot of things..."

Good work! And congratulations again on your Dobby nomination!


Author's Response: I know she really does suck as a mum as she's just so cruel and unforgiving and all Helena needs is a hug and not constant criticism. Boo to Rowena even though it pains me to say that as a Claw but I think when people are too focused on intelligence, it can lead to a focus on a perfection hence why she keeps on badgering Helena.

Be suspicious! I shan't say why but given that he does end up killing Rowena should be a big enough indicator that he isn't all what he seems!

I know, it never made much sense and even though gender segregation is nowhere near as prominent as it was then it still makes me question why they are so keen to define the differences between them and point them out rather than embrace and integrate them.

Thanks for pointing out the CC and this review, it was so useful and lovely! ♥
