Review #26, by PookhaEvent 3: At Night's End: The sun sings lullabies.

7th January 2016:
This may have been written quickly, but it is beautiful. The descriptions of the colors give it a real, evocative feeling of what you are describing.

Ollivander had a hard time in the dungeon, and Luna's presence made all the difference. I like the added touch that she reminds him of his daughter.

It's good to see someone showing him making a wand, and describing it instead of just 'black-boxing' it.

Great that Sunflowers come up when he tests the wand. Luna's like a sunflower herself, always positive and unshakable in what she believes, loyal as a Hufflepuff, brave as a Gryffindor, intelligent as a Ravenclaw.

BvB review.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for stopping by! You are too kind!

Ollivander as a character is also very fascinating, and I found the relationship he had with Luna while they were at Malfoy Manor really interesting. If I was going to be tortured and kept in a dungeon for more than a year, I would love Luna to be my only company!

I find wand lore so interesting as well - literally being able to harness magic and put it into a wand, which then everyone uses to perform magic. THE BASICS of magic, essentially! Difficult to think about, obv.

And you're spot on with your description of Luna!

Thanks for reviewing!

Review #27, by PookhaHarry Potter and the Final Year: Chapter 4: Lightsthefire

6th January 2016:
Whew! that was a very long chapter, but very well done. I must admit that I don't have a strong head-canon of goblin lifestyle, so it was interesting to read a take on it.

I really like Stampofiron and her no-nonsense method and I actually like the cursing from her. She feels like a real person, as do all the other goblins in your story.

Harry is portrayed absolutely accurately, with astonishment, curiosity and an intelligence that often gets under-rated by many writers. He's not stupid, and is in fact fairly gifted (not Hermione gifted, but gifted). He sees more in people than any of his friends (Except Luna who notices everything, even if she mis-understands it).

This was a great chapter, and I particularly enjoyed that Goblin Made is the anti-Horcrux. I'm writing a story about a necromancer boy going to Hogwarts, and he's able to put small bits of peoples souls back into the zombies he can raise, so I understand about using bits of souls in different ways.

A great read so far, and so far I've been remembering to read more!

Author's Response: Hey there, what a great review, and totally unexpected too. I knew you were enjoying my story as of the first chapter, but I'm glad that you stuck around to read more.

It was a very long chapter, but there was no good place to split it up. I can remember talking to my beta at the time about this very issue. There was no logical place to split it so a long chapter it stayed.

I didn't really have any really strong head-cannon of goblin lifestyle either, not before I started reading this story. I came from it from this angle because of hints from the books. The banking staff seemed to be predominantly male, that was one thing. Secondly the wizarding world always seemed to be a bit behind the muggle one. I jumped off from these two elements and extrapolated them out. Living underground and caught between two great cultures might force the goblins along certain lines. What you have been reading is an exploration of all of that.

I really like Stampofiron too. She was a happy accident that the writing gods bestowed upon me. I wanted a tough boss of the kitchens, no nonsense and practical with it: after all of that she just wrote herself.

In my stories, I have tried to keep the swearing at a minimum. I have not excised it completely because I don't have to write for small children as JKR had to. But what I have tried to do is to only use it where appropriate or where it fits to do so. If she is a hard, no-nonsense sort of goblin, who has had to fight her way to the top and to make her way in a probably patriarchal society, then she very well might swear as a matter of course.

Thank you for that. I really wanted the goblins to be people. One of the things I particularly hate in sci-fi and fantasy is when an author makes a whole race stupid. We are diverse as a species, even within one society/country/city there are a wide variety of temperaments and abilities. I don't want to do less for any non-human characters I write.

Thank you as well. I really have been trying to make my Harry live up to what I understood his abilities and potential to be. As to his giftedness, it is funny that you should mention that. I have a particular head-cannon that is going to be coming up in a later chapter about that very subject. Stay tuned.

(ps. I know what you mean about Luna)

It is sort of, to my mind at least, much like an 'anti-horcrux'. One of the things that always keeps coming back to me is that statement of Arthur Weasley's when he admonished his children to never trust anything that could think and you couldn't see where it kept it's brains. That and a bit of logic was what got me on the path of what 'goblin-made' items must really be. I don't think it's too far from the books either. To my mind if there are things that JKR has established in her books - like the ability to transfer portions of your soul into items, or the transdimensional nature of extension charms - then it is free for us who are expanding her world to take them and run with them.

Take for instance your idea about the necromancer. That is quite an interesting idea that could very well fit in with what JKR has already established - horcruxes, inferi and the like. I wish you well with it.

I am very glad you have been reading on. Thanks for the very positive and lovely review.

Review #28, by PookhaHere With You: Here With You

6th January 2016:
So, I really like Hugo's characterization here. He feels like a 17-year old, unsure boy (and being male, I would know). The relationship between him and Emma is well-defined in just one chapter, you know they'll be besties forever.

It was interesting to watch her reaction to setting him up on a date. I think she deliberately named people he would refuse until she named Finn, so he wouldn't have a good excuse to say no. She knew Finn liked him and subtly manipulated it.

It's good to see how far LGTBQ fic has come in just the few years since I joined. So many fewer people saying no to writing and reviewing slash and other types of the fic.

You handled the angsty teen dating scene very well and chose to do so in a respectful manner. Very well written technically with no errors that I noticed.

Author's Response: Hello!
I'm so glad you enjoyed this! Since I'm female, writing from a guy's POV has always seemed quite daunting to me, so hearing from you that it felt realistic is so reassuring!
Emma and Hugo will definitely be best friends forever. They've just been there for each other through so much that they can't imagine their lives without each other.
I honestly hadn't thought about Emma naming people she knew he'd turn down, but it makes total sense! I think she'd try and sneakily set him up with Finn. That subtle manipulation is very Slytherin, I think.
I'm glad you thought the date was handled well, and that it wasn't too angsty! Haha. I don't think Finn could be angsty if he tried.
Thank you so much for the lovely review!

Review #29, by PookhaThrough My Sister's Eyes: Through My Sister's Eyes

6th January 2016:
I really like when authors set themselves the challenge of writing a 12+ story, because it can be difficult with the forum rules to do so. I especially like that you set out to do a 12+ story that wasn't just fluff.

Great job characterizing the girls, especially Padma. She has a distinct voice from either of her sisters.

You also do a great job with explaining that the children already understand what happened, even though the adults are hiding it. The leak from Ravi that their Aunt Padma dies makes sense as Ravi's at that in-between age between child and adult.

A great job keeping it real. Your story reads real because it has the touches that give it that feel of something that actually happened.

Author's Response: Hello!
I'd never written Padma before this, so I'm glad you liked her! I really enjoy writing both children and minor characters, so this was a nice chance to do a bit of both.
I think kids see and understand a lot more than we give them credit for. They have such an honest, wonderful view of the world, and I really wanted to try and show that here. Padma understands what's going on, but can view it in a way that helps the rest of her family get through a difficult time.
I'm glad you thought it was realistic, as well.
Thank you for the review!

Review #30, by PookhaBlood Moon: Blood Moon

6th January 2016:
Well, that was terrifying, in a good way. You do a great job building the fear through the chase, getting a sense of urgency going and then keeping the pressure on.

Fenrir here is appropriately animalistic and dangerous, and is shown as someone to be feared.

Your description is masterful, and it is clear and full without being overwhelming in it's descriptiveness (I hope that made sense, lol).

I also like that you imply a lot about other things that Fenrir might be doing to his victims without explicitly stating what they are, letting the reader picture it for themselves.

A great, atmospheric read.

BvB review.

Author's Response: Hi Pookha!

Thank you! That was my main concern in this - action is not my strong point so I'm glad you feel that this was good and I built the fear up well!

He genuinely scares me so I knew I had to portray that here so I am really glad he comes across this way. I think everyone would be scared to be confronted by him so I wanted to get that across that he is a terrifying monster.

Thank you! I do try and work on my descriptions so I really happy you enjoyed them and it wasn't too much!

Well I always get this underlying feeling about Greyback - he really gives me the chills for obvious reasons and it's not stretch to think he could be doing worse things than killing his 'prey'.

thank you so much for the wonderful review!

Review #31, by PookhaA Few Minutes More: A Few Minutes More

6th January 2016:
They say write what you know and it sounds like you know about dealing with toddlers. I've always, always, always thought that Ginny got short shrift in the books, so it's good to see a Ginny-centric story where she's just not a crazy red-headed maniac as she is often stereotyped.

I really like the way she deals with the children individually and how she goes in angry, but when she sees them playing nicely together, she calms right down.

I also really like that each of the kids has their own individual personality.

Very well written from a technical perspective, too.

Author's Response: Hello there!

I agree with you about Ginny - I think J.K. couldn't done a bit more, but the books were really about Harry and good vs. evil. Haha - yeah, I have kids - and they were mainly the inspiration for this story.

Thanks so much!

Review #32, by PookhaHow can I walk away?: How can I walk away?

5th January 2016:
So I don't normally read Dramione, but I'm glad I read this one. It avoids all the tropes and cliches by removing them entirely. It's a great way to show the ship without context.

You do a great job showing how they want to hide, but also want to be out in the light. The disappearing footsteps were a great choice of description.

I also like how Draco is showing more bravery here than he would have in his past. He wants to bring them to light, and he wants to show the world how it is now.

A great read for mood and tone.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review and I'm happy to have written a Dramione that you kind of like. I do ship them and think they match each other but there has to be a major shift of Draco to bring them together. But here, I did skillfully dart around the specifics :) He's a changed along and walked a hard road to bring him to this point. He's sacrificed a lot in his life but he wont sacrifice Hermione. Thanks for stopping by.

Review #33, by PookhaParachute: Frequent Visits to St. Mungo's

4th January 2016:
BvB review.

I don't think the conversation was too short. You really didn't need to fill in that space with the whole dragged out thing, so summing up was fine. It is okay to tell once in a while instead of showing and sometimes it's right when it's a long tedious conversation (like Lily's wheedling probably was here).

I like the feel of Lily not wanting to follow in the family's footsteps. She wants to do her own thing and be her own person.

You do very well at connecting the reader to Lily's feelings and we understand just how tired of feeling worried for her family she is. She's not just tired of going there, but she's also tired of worrying.

My favorite part is how you make us care about the characters.

Review #34, by PookhaHarry Potter and the Final Year: Prologue

1st January 2016:
This was brilliant. I love 8th year type fics and have been thinking of writing one myself. I thought that Harry was perfectly in character and so were the Malfoys. I've pictured that trial going pretty much the same way, so confirmation of head canon is always nice.

This says a lot of not only Harry's character, but Draco's. Draco is not a nice person, but he's also not a murderer or really a Death Eater. He's a scared, prejudiced teenager who's come under the spell (ha-ha) of bad people and didn't realize until too late just how evil they were.

I completely agree that Narcissa would have avoided Azkaban and Lucius would have spent some time there. I've always vacillated on Draco, leaning toward how you depicted it here.

Great characterization and good dialogue. Keeping it in character the whole way through makes it easy to read and makes it seem real. Going to favourite this and try to remember to read more.

Author's Response: Well hi there, I just wrote you a review for the latest BvB, so here I am answering your review in kind.

Thanks so much for the praise. The story had been rattling around in my head for ages before I committed it to paper, actually long before I'd even read one single Harry Potter fan-fiction. As such it is full of my head cannons and what-I-think-should-happen-next's.

To have my head cannon match that of someone else is wonderful to me. This chapter was a necessary evil, in so much that it had to happen sometime. The stuff that happens in the next chapter and beyond is what was going through my mind for all those years, not the trial of Draco. But once I realised that it had to happen, the only logical place for it to occur was right at the beginning of the story.

It is really gratifying to me to read that you think that my characterisation of Harry and the Malfoy's was a match for the books - I really did try to keep them in the spirit of what JKR was doing with them. The stuck up upper-class mother and the spoilt petulant child of the earlier books dissapear in the light of the greater evil of Voldemort. They are much changed by the end of the seventh book and I tried to extrapolate that out.

Your second paragraph I agree with totally. Draco may never be nice. I remember reading that JKR thought that, despite all of the fan fiction that she'd heard of to the contrary, Harry and Draco would never be friends. I don't necessarily agree with that, but I think that it would be hard for them to become bosom buddies too.

We shall see what the community service of Draco's brings. I have started to write the chapter and it occurs sometime around chapter 10 or 12 or so. It will certainly be a learning experience for the young man, that it will.

So thanks again for the praise and the review, it was a very welcome thing to see and to read. Please keep reading and I hope you like what I am attempting to do.

Review #35, by PookhaAnthony Goldstein's Chanukah: Anthony Goldstein's Chanukah

14th December 2015:
I quite enjoyed reading this. It's good to see the holidays from a different perspective. I must admit that I never thought about Chanukah happening during Hogwarts term, but this year it's 12/6-12/14 so it makes sense. It would be hard to be at Hogwarts during such a holiday, but Anthony handled it well here.

Thank you so much for this glimpse at his holiday. I like that the other students were accepting of his beliefs, too and celebrated with him (at least by wondering what his presents were).

Review #36, by PookhaA Happy Holiday Indeed: Happy Christmas

Super sweet and any story featuring Dobby will be faved if good, and this one is GOOD. I like the way DD visits and spends time with Dobby. He knows that Dobby is very much feeling the same way as he does and they can both enjoy each other's company.

Terrific characterization of Dobby and DD.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you feel that way! I've always thought holidays would be very difficult for Dumbledore so I wanted to express that. Thank you so much for the lovely review! :D

Extremely well-written, especially for a first fanfic. Kudos for writing a minor character, too. I quite enjoyed Argus's characterization and the way he's worried about what his family thinks, but also the way that he wants to fit in.

The Shakespeare theme will help to tie it all together and it will be interesting to see more. I'm going to favorite this.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for this, I hope I don't disappoint!

Review #38, by PookhaThe Cornish Pixie Clock: The Cornish Pixie Clock

11th December 2015:
I love this story. I'm always up for some fluff with Luna and I like Luna/Rolf quite a bit. Rolf knows that Luna's going to want something unique (like him!)

I really like the gift that he gave her with the clock and the wood-working that he had to do to fix it. I find myself liking your Rolf quite a bit.

Keep writing fluff, the world has enough angst! (Ah, write angst, too).

I really see the love that they have for each other come through in your writing.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review!
Luna/Rolf is a ship I need more canon info on. They have to be a near perfect take on the cute 'quirky' couple.
I'm glad you liked my version of Rolf and his relationship with Luna. Rolf is, for lack of better words, my precious little nugget.
(Actually, the world doesn't have enough angst.)

This is beautiful. So very Luna and Harry. The language is simple and evocative, and it shines through with power and grace. We can FEEL, FEEL, FEEL, the love and the simple truth of the pairing through your writing.

I admit that I was searching for a great Harry/Luna story to get me back into feeling this ship like I used to and this one was it.

Your use of language is clear and colorful. I like the way that some of the story read like poetry. Thank you for a beautiful and sad story.

Review #40, by PookhaHurricane Luna: They Meet in a Tree

19th January 2015:
So I'll start with your headcanon for Rolf; T.J. Thyne. He's not my first choice (I picture Rolf as very large and Viking-looking, more like Zakk Wylde), but I love the choice and I can see the Rolf in your story looking like this. Great faceclaim for Rolf.

As someone who writes Luna a lot myself, I think you got her characterization right on the money. So many people make her too strange or not strange enough and then she's flat or not understandable or relatable. You got her spot-on.

Her eagerness to help and learn often exceeds her skill, but she learns quickly and she's willing to listen to people, but if they don't agree with her worldview, she will think about it then dismiss it if it's not correct to her. You capture that well here with her stubbonness about the birds.

I really liked Luna watching him for days in the trees before announcing her prescence. I've already read the other chapters and hope to review them soon.

Author's Response: Hey there!

Haha - So, SO many people comment on TJ! Thanks for the compliment about Luna - I can't wait to read some of your work with her in it!

Thanks again - I'd love to hear what you think about how this story develops!

Review #41, by PookhaFeel Alive: Feel Alive

14th January 2015:
Ron/Hermione is one of those relationships that either love or hate it seems. I really like the canon pairing and understand where they come from.

Ron does make her FEEL, that's why they're such a good pairing. The sisterly love that Hermione feels for Harry is so different from what she feels for Ron. It's so much deeper for her. Yes, he's not as smart as she is and yes, he's inconsiderate; but, he does love her as she is and that counts for a lot.

My headcanon has their marriage solid as a rock, with these little things never threatening it or causing more friction than exasperation, and that seems to be what you have here.

A great little insight into Hermione's feelings for Ron.

I loved it.

Review #42, by PookhaStating My Independence: Stating my Independence

12th January 2015:
While this goes against my headcanon and JKR canon, I quite enjoyed the AUness of it. This is what fanfic is about; finding the 'what ifs' and using them to make an interesting story.

This is a good character study of Draco and it shows the side of him that is willing to change, the side that wouldn't betray Harry to the Snatchers at Malfoy Manor in DH. This is the sort of Draco where we can see humanity.

I really liked the way he steeled himself to leave his mother especially. I truly can see this Draco having a hard time cutting the maternal bonds (but not the paternal ones).

A very nice character study.

Author's Response: Thank you. I wanted to explore Draco a little more with this story and hopefully justify his actions and show him making a change. I feel it was his fathers control which dictated much of his decisions. Without him ruling his life, I believe he'd be a different person...still driven, cunning and devious, but not quite so ready to follow a murderer.

Review #43, by PookhaRiddikulus: Riddikulus

7th January 2015:
I really enjoyed this story. Minerva's Boggart being the dead from the Battle makes so much sense to me. The biggest thing that I enjoyed here is that Winky is shown being redeemed and active at Hogwarts instead of moping about in misery.

I will say that she should have known it was lying for sure when Fred accused her. She had to know that Fred wouldn't have thought she hated them. Boggarts are great at really pulling the emotional strings.

Very nicely written.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for this review! Miverva is definitely intimidating to write, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Review #44, by PookhaBroken: i. a broken lavender

5th January 2015:
I really enjoyed finding this story. It's good to see someone giving Lavender her chance. I'm currently writing a Dudley/Lavender story that has some similar themes (Lavender with PTSD), so it was good to see someone with like thoughts.

You handled the self-harm and other sensitive subjects with aplomb and care. I really liked the tender relationship between Lav and Parvati.

So many students at Hogwarts have to have PTSD, but it's a subject that often gets ignored.

Really well written and evocative.

Author's Response: Hello, thank you so much for the read and review! I'm definitely not the first to give Lavender the attention she deserves but she's so underwritten and it's such a shame because I think she's an incredibly interesting character.

I'd garner a guess at saying the majority of students suffered from some level of PTSD after the war but you're right, in general quite an ignored fact.

Thanks so much for the feedback. Also, I feel I'll be checking your Lav/Dudley story very soon - I can't wait! :D

Review #46, by PookhaTwo Earthly Kingdoms: To Anger a God

3rd January 2015:
Orpheus in the underworld with Snape as Orpheus and Voldy-baby as Hades. An interesting take on Snape's tale and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

The lyrical style is almost like proesie, some of the best of Baudelaire, like 'Les fleurs du mal.' It evokes a mood, which is as important to this story as the plot. Beautiful and moving.

Author's Response: Hey there - thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Yeah, I just loved the idea of Snape fitting into that role - it's an incredibly tragic role, which fits his character, even if not completely, and it meant there was a lot of space for other characters to fit into it too. I'm so glad you liked it - I know Greek Mythology isn't exactly everyone's cup of tea :P

Wow, thank you so much! I've read enough Baudelaire to know what that means, so thank you so so much! :) I really enjoying writing this, making all the connections and the links (even if it was pretty hard), so I'm so happy some of that came through :)

Thank you so much for the lovely review - it was such a great surprise! :)

Review #47, by PookhaA Deception: To Deceive

3rd January 2015:
Well, this is quality writing. Beautifully evocative and subtle. It gives the proper feeling of Andromeda, haughty and proud, but still unsure of herself at the same time.

Appearances are just as important to her as reality and she knows it. Her ability to see within herself really rounds out her personality and adds to her relationship with Ted.

At first, I thought she was too cold, but I began to understand her better as you went on with the story. It's good to see Bella as someone who was a sister, and not just as a mad Death Eater. It's something that people often forget to do with Bella; which is to give her life.

It's also interesting how her tale parallels Sirius's a bit with running away to escape. Always good to see the minor characters get some love.

Author's Response: Hey there! Thank you so much for dropping by! :)

Gah, thank you so much! I'm so glad you like it - it was something I wrote on a complete whim, so I was nervous about posting it and how it would go down... so thank you so much! :)

I really wanted to bring out the more pureblood side of her, and explore the idea that maybe it wasn't just for love, or something 'good' that she ran away. I loved turning round the more typical presentation of her, by making her colder towards Ted, and making her more friendly with her family, more fond of them than normal.

Yeah, I liked making a kind of connection to Sirius running away, since I always liked seeing them as similar things, and having similar ideals behind it. I do love minor characters! :P

Thank you so much for the lovely review! It was so great to get! :)

No language errors that I noticed, and I'm fairly strict that way. It's so nice to come back to HPFF and find quality fanfic still lives.

This is one of the best stories I've read in a while and it's so nice to see someone trying to stay canon while telling a missing moments story. Looking forward to reading more of your work.

Review #49, by PookhaAshes of Dust: The Constant Vigil

18th February 2011:
This is beautiful. I love your style in this piece. You capture their emotions wonderfully, especially Helen's. They have a very real and complicated family dynamic and it directly gives the reader a view of what made Alastor what he is.

I can see the line from here to Mad-Eye. His monomania and paranoia are very well drawn out by you. I wish I could write in this style; you are beautifully evocative in your ability to be poignant without being cloying or over-the-top.

A very rare 10/10 from me.

Author's Response: This review has left me speechless - it's absolutely fantastic to hear that you think so highly of this story. When writing it, I was uncertain about the simplicity of Helen's memories and emotions - it's very everyday, which I don't usually deal with, so I really stripped away metaphor and description to find something surprisingly moving. It's not my usual style, either, I think I'm trying to say in a feeble way, but I am very pleased to hear that you liked it.

For once, I'd wanted to write a growing up story that didn't include grand tragedy or sweeping drama, but that was fairly normal (for the wizarding world, of course). I'm glad you could see the themes of paranoia and watchfulness slowly emerging in the young Alastor, especially inspired by his mother's warnings. His childhood and adolescence set him on the road to becoming Mad-Eye - the war with Voldemort ends up being the figurative straw that broke the camel's back for him.

Thank you very much for reading and reviewing this story. I really appreciate hearing any opinion from you, and that your opinion on this story was so favourable only makes it better. ^_^

Review #50, by PookhaFighting Is Perfection: Fighting is What we Do

26th June 2010:
Well, first of all, I want to say that I have a quite different view of Ron and Hermione. But, that's what I love about fanfic, I can find a piece written from another view and find things to enjoy about it.

What I love about this piece is the dialogue driven story. The dialogue really makes this story shine. Ginny's character was minor in the story, but the way she speaks makes her character come alive.

Ron's and Hermione's characterisations through the dialogue were very good, too. I can totally hear Ron speaking his lines and Hermione's responses to them.

Some people might tell you that there's a lack of description in this story, but I would urge you not to listen to them. It's rare to find a story that leaves the descriptions up to the reader so the reader can picture the scenes. What I mean is, if you add too much description to this story, the wonderful dialogue would take a back-seat.

Author's Response: I am really intrigued about how you view Ron and Hermione. I felt that the dialogue would be most important and in the forefront with Ron and Hermione. I'm not exactly sure why, I just felt it had to be that way.

I am very glad you liked the characterizations. I mostly write Next-Gen because I am deathly afraid of writing a character we all know and love and not being able to do them justice.

Thank you for your kind review!
