I really enjoyed this. You captured the feel of the centaurs brilliantly and I really felt like this was Bane's voice speaking to me. (It was Bane, right? I think he's the one Hagrid chastised on his way back to the castle with Harry in his arms.) I particularly liked the idea of siding with one futile, brief existance for another futile, brief existance - it really delved into the centaurs' psyche and your word choice was superb. Then, when they decided to join in the battle, again it was so well put - the sounds of the arrows in the air and the thundering of their hooves. For such a short piece you really put a lot into this and I'm deeply impressed. Great job!

Bane's perspective. How truly original. You've captured his voice here excellently. I thought this was exceedingly well written. Great work!

I've been wondering when I was going to come across a Firenze story! I liked it. I think it was well written. Descriptive and detailed but not overly so. It had a simplistic feel to it which I could really appreciate. I think you caught the essence of the centaurs well. It was definitely an interesting thing to read since centaurs aren't such a common topic to write about. Good job.

Wow! This is so well written! The perspective was very interesting. I loved the referral to the stars, and to Firenze, to the bearded-man (Hagrid right?), and to Harry. You related it to things that we know, so it was interesting to see this centaur's take on the things. It's great that the centaurs decided to act after all, but sad that Firenze lay injured...

Well written story! Enjoyed reading it!

I normally zone out while reading about stars. I don't know how you did it, but you really kept my interest in this. And I really took in every word about all the planets and stars - and that is definitely a credit to you as a writer, considering how I normally barely pay any attention to this stuff!

The voice in this really came true. You used slightly old-fashioned language in this and that is how centaurs speak. It was very poetic and used a lot of metaphors and the tone was just... Wow. It was really something. Centaurs are really hard to write and you definitely did a good job of this.

You didn't name the centaur and I think that was a clever idea as it made me focus more on the centaur's thoughts in a strange way... I don't know, it just really made me really focus on what the centaur was thinking rather than worrying about their character. And it was really well done!

From that first sentence, I knew that this was going to be a centaur story. Nice one.
