Review #1, by CandiFlossCourage of a Badger: Prolouge

2nd March 2014:
Ahh! You posted a story! I'm so glad, because now I can finally repay the favor and hopefully leave you reviews as lovely as the ones you leave me. And honetly girl, I don't know why it took you so long to upload a story, because damn, girl, you can write!
First off, I love that you're writing this story from Lucy's point of view. It's unusual, and that in itself gives the story an edge. And then there's the homosexuality issue, which adds a whole other twist on your writing. I actually really appreciate that you didn't go with any of the next-gen cliches; that makes your story really stand out positively.
Your writing style is great, too. It's clear, easy to read, and really helps the reader get into Lucy's head. I like that you didn't go overboard with fluff, and that each of your words served a purpose.
Obviously, I really enjoyed this first chapter and I think your story has tremendous potential. Keep writing, please!

Author's Response: Ahh - thank you! It's so lovely getting a review from you because I admire your writing so highly. You really are extremely sweet.
I'm glad that you like Lucy's point of view! I didn't want to write a really cliched Next Gen and Lucy, since we know so little about her, seemed extremely interesting to me. Growing up with such famous relatives would have given her a lot of emotional issues and self-confidence problems, and that was something I really wanted to explore.
So again, THANK YOU! It's so nice getting critique from you and I hope to have the next chapter up soon, though since my laptop broke last week it may be longer than I want it to be. Thank you!

Review #2, by CandiFlossmystify.: mystify.

9th February 2014:
It's really rare for me to literally squee when I read a story, and the fact that your writing merited that squee is a compliment unto itself.
First off, I love your characterisation. Dramione is my OTP, but it's such a tricky pairing to pull off - most of the time, the relationship seems stilted and unrealistic. Yours, though, was gradual, plausible, and evolved so sweetly that I couldn't help but smile. :)
Also, that little touch at the end? Connecting the initial burgeoning of sentiment to the ultimate state of love lends a beautifully cohesive feel to the story, and I think it finished off the tale wonderfully.
Finally, above everything else, I absolutely adore your writing. Stylistic narrating can be amazing when it's done well, as yours certainly was. The lyrical prose perfectly complemented the sweetness of the story.
Obviously, I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Keep it up!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! I am so touched by this review. Honestly, I've been sitting at my computer for about 10 minutes just trying to think about what I want to say - thank you just doesn't seem like enough. It's so wonderful to hear that the characterisation and interactions were believable (it is very tricky to pull off, especially in a one-shot). After much thought, the intellectual attraction was the only thing I could actually picture as 'realistic', so thank you for letting me know it was plausible! :)
And above all, thank you so, so, so much for those kind words about my writing. It really means a lot to hear that. I'm so happy you enjoyed the read :)
