Review #1, by flavia pulchraRomeo and Juliet: Wherefore art thou, Romeo?

27th December 2010:
I haven't read anything so funny in a long long time. You have managed to capture and twist this over-used style so well that I recognised it from the first sentence. A shimmering example of the effervescent wit on this site, and a point well proven that there is a boundary of how much soppy love/hate we can take.

Author's Response: Ah, thankyou muchly! It was so over the top that though I enjoyed writing it I wasn't sure how it would be received!

There are so many decent writers on this site, and I think ff doesn't get the recognition it deserves because of all the other writers who are just lazy or not really concerned with writing so much as living vicariously through their protagonists :S [/soap box]

Thankyou so much for the lovely review! Glad you enjoyed!

i love the dramatic-ness with which you write! its great

Author's Response: Thank you!! I'll have the next chapter out one of these days!

Review #5, by flavia pulchraComplicated Hexagon: Slytherins and Decisions

6th September 2009:
im so confused!

why would she pick james and sirius over ron
she is HERMIONE and therefore always wants to the right, most sensible thing
she knows that her time has to happen for everything to be fixed and surely dumbledore is cleverer than to just want the best things for the wizarding world if it means that history (in the future) has to be rewritten!

Review #7, by flavia pulchraComplicated Hexagon: The Time Turner Draught

5th September 2009:
this is really good but im sure you know that what with all the awards etc

it sounds so much more mature than most other stories here and has a fantastically new idea which in most other cases would be ridiculous and silly but you have twisted it into an interesting plot which is completely plausible (relatively speaking obviously)
i look forward to reading on!

Review #8, by flavia pulchraThe Art Of Match-Making: “Mistletoe, Mistletoe, Put On A Smile. Watch For The Knargals, You Might Be Under There For Awhile."

5th September 2009:
i like the idea but the story is a bit dull and slow-moving
and its lavEnder not lavander

Author's Response: Um..thank you for the feedback and I know. I just like it better that way.

Review #10, by flavia pulchraLoving: Rose and Scorpius.: Halloween Hell

23rd August 2009:
still absolutely loving it
a couple of things though:
i dont think slughorn would say "hey" to stop an arguement
nor ron say "sweetie", he'd say rosie though according to the epilogue
seriously the best story ive read so far, balanced, in the right style and the characters are so well rounded
i have fallen in love with your scorpius

Author's Response: Thanks so much!! I admit, I didn't think over the minor characters too much. I know in the books Slughorn is a bit passive, but maybe now he's headmaster (in my story) he's a bit more authoritive?? I completly agree about Ron sounds a bit weird. Maybe the conversation was awkwered for him, and thats why he said it. Hmm. But thanks so much for your reviews, you're so awesome!!

Review #14, by flavia pulchraForbidden In The Forest: The Clearing

7th August 2009:
Sorry I couldnt reply to your review properly the thing wouldnt let me, so im writing a thank you review instead. i can see you like stories short and sweet as well. this is lovely and I hope you write more because this is the kind of writing there should be more of. a snapshot of the lives of characters that we dont know much about. it's also nice to hear from people on this website who arent american for once (im english).
I would beta you just to read more of your stuff! It's great, soulful and love the banners sally sparrow on them. X

Author's Response: Yes, gotta love Sally Sparrow as Rose. I always specifically request carey mulligan, i think she looks normal but kind of beautiful, great for Rose :)
Yes sometimes it seems everyone is american lol, thanks for your reviews very much!!

Review #16, by flavia pulchraThe Unknown Years: Decisions

14th July 2009:
mon dieu! zut alors! merde! sacre bleu!
good actual story but could you at least try to keep what the characters say English rather than American!!!
no-one wears ball gowns to school dances (or says such in that context), we wear miniskirts or denim skirts and 'tank tops' for heavens sake!
and you certainly wouldnt wear a ball gown to meet the Queen.
please research further in future
but good general story line
im going to keep reading at any rate

Author's Response: well every school dance i went to we wore very nice ball gowns... so maybe you wear mini-skirts but that's not my experience, and also... if you don"t wear a ball gown to meet the Queen what are you going to wear?

Review #20, by flavia pulchraNever enough: Ain't it heavy

21st June 2009:
you should try poetry
you'd be good
this was too but very poetic
maybe a little too much so

Author's Response: Thanks. I agree that this is a mixture of poetry and prose, but I thought they mixed well. I'll try some pure poetry next. Thanks for your encouragement and for leaving a review after reading.

ok i am really angry because you can't say 'write so good' because good is an adjective and 'write' has to be described by an adverb eg well!

Review #25, by flavia pulchraThe Essay: The Essay

31st May 2009:
its good
i practically am hermione so coming from me you should be pleased
i think maybe you could cut down all of the times that she/I am crying and angry with ron
if she/I love(s) him then she wouldnt do that too him
and ron would be too scared to say much
but really good otherwise

Author's Response: Thanks, 'Hermione!' ; ) Really? I don't know, I liked that. I mean, look at how much she breaks down in the sixth book! She's always crying and getting angry with Ron! : ) hahahah thanks for the opinion though and I'll think about reworking some of it. I think what I wanted to put across was the reason why she was like this with Ron is because she loves him, and when people fight they love eachother! Love is complicated! loll
Thanks again
