Review #1, by Elf_ears13 

31st July 2007:
I like the character you gave to Merrythought - she's proud, jealous and generally very human. The duel at the beginning reminded me of the greater duel she was facing - age - and I liked the progression from the easy-to-beat to being beaten. The cameos of canon characters were well placed, and I liked being able to compare and contrast her to them; adding Dorcas was particularly clever, since she tends to be seen as younger in fanfiction, but I've always thought of her as older.

Aww, that was sad, but in a way it was sweet too. You captured the moment really well, and I love how her friends scolded Dorcas when she raised her hand. That felt real. ^_^ Great job! 10/10

I would so love to read much more of Merrythought. You have captured a lovely lady that I would like to know more of. Perhaps you will do this some day.

This story gave so much thought and texture to the character that I am truly sad we didn't see more of her before. I am serious...I would love to get to know the person you have created in more detail. You make me want to know how she achieved her dueling skills...why she feels old before her time. Well, I guess your story has done a superb job of making me want more. Perhaps, that was your intent...to tell us so very much with so few words that you have us enchanted and wanting more.

If so, you have done a superlative job!

Author's Response: I'm a bit overwhlemed by the requests to do a more in depth story about Merrythought's life and more then flattered at the same time. This was one of the hardest one-shots I've ever had to write and the fact that all of the reviews have been so positive and wonderful has made it more then worth the tears and frustration that went into creating the story.

I'll definately give a considerable amount of thought into working with Merrythought again after this. Not that I really need another project...

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your review! - Jenn

I loved this story so much! Galatea's character is so intriguing - it really makes me want to know a lot more about her previous years at Hogwarts and her whole life story! Can you write a chaptered fic about this??? :P Marvelous work, Jenn! 10/10

Author's Response: I'm thrilled beyond words that you enjoyed my story that much Jessi! I hadn't really considered writing a more in-depth story about Merrythought's life, but the idea has merrit. Thank you so much for the review! - Jenn

How horribly sad! The duelling sad was fantastic - there are not many stories I have read on fan fiction that encapsulate action for teaching purposes so well! You did a great job here - I have tears in my eyes and I am not sure if they are sad or happy! Very well done! 10/10! ~ andy x x

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review - I am always thrilled when I read reviews where a reader has been moved by something I have written. And, to know that I managed to pull off a difficult scene - one I struggled with during the writing - means more to me then words can descibe. I am honored that you enjoyed my story as much as you did! - Jenn
