This is so good :) I like the the last part with Dumbledores portrait hanging on the wall!

Review #2, by Elf_ears13 

1st August 2007:
This reminded me a lot of classic short stories - Jorge Luis Borges, probably because that's the most recent I've read - and I loved the tone you took with this. It sounded like a reminiscent old man telling one of his favorite stories about his youth, even if it didn't take place when Flitwick was very young. Ms McMillan was certainly entertaining, and all of the dialog again reminded me of a published short story. I thought you pulled the clues together well; I knew that China-or-Japan thing would come in later! This was a pleasure to read.

Good Lord, the Mirror of Knowledge! Oh, sorry, I mean Egdelwonk. Egg-del-wonk! My God! 10/10

What a poignant last line there, Loony! It really stabbed you….with the contrast to the rest of the story and brought out the idea that even though there would eventually be success there would also be plenty of casualties along the way. :o( Just how many stories have you contributed to this collection? With every one that I read by you, it just gets better. If your last one (Quirrel methinks) was excellent, there really are no words to describe this one. Is the island of Strand actually real? What a cool idea…naming an island beach! :D If you invented the legend in this story, you did a truly excellent job, and if you didn’t, well then you used the idea to write a fantastic story. This one is definitely on of my favourites! Good ole’ Flitwick. Very well done and an obvious 10/10. :D Lieb Dich!

Author's Response: No, I didn't invent it; Strand was real, and so was the storm that ripped it apart. Parts of this island are still existent (and a wonderful place to spend your holidays, I can assure you of that!). I can't tell you if my stories are getting better simply because you're not reading them in the order I wrote them. :P But of course I'm happy you loved them all! *huggle* I've had the idea for that story for some time... I just wasn't sure if I could write it. I think it started with a discussion on HPFF about the title of book 7... *blinks* And you should have seen the alternative ending I wrote! It was a lot too angsty for the story... So actually what you read was even a weaker version. Anyways, thank you so very much for your lovely review! Ich mag dich auch! ^_^

Very interesting. The quest aspect of this fic is excellent and the OCs and history are all used very well, draeing the reader into the story and giving great atmosphere. The Mirror of Egdelwonk was a great plot device and your use of it to foreshadow things at the end was excellent.

Author's Response: Thank you very much, Noblevyne! I'm happy you're enjoying your present so much. Thanks a lot for stopping by and leaving such an encouraging review! *huggles* ~Loony
