I like your choice in subject matter using the diadem along with Helena. I also appreciate the ending of how she sees the Bloody Baron and seems to forgive him. Her internal dialog is good as well.

Review #3, by Capella Black 

20th August 2010:
Ooh, nice concept! I love how conflicted the Grey Lady is in this - her guilt, her hopelessness, and eventually her realisation of hope.

The execution is also brilliant too. I love the paragraph about being Rowena's daugther; each part takes the concept a little further, just as each comment would have made Helena a little more bitter, a little more hurt. Really gets the point across well. The paragraph of her hopes is equally poetic - the repetition driving through the strength of her pain and guilt.

The contrast at the end, between her being stuck on her old emotions, while the Bloody Baron finally did something to change his, was a clever twist, giving the whole story a sense of purpose and closure, while leaving the reader asking "what next?"

This was a really interesting perspective from the Grey Lady, I thought. I totally get the jealousy of her mother, because no one wants to be defined as being the whatever of someone else; you want to be known for yourself. Perhaps that was why she stole the diadem, really - it's touched on here and you've made me give more thought to a matter that I just dismissed beforehand.

I really liked the bit at the end with the Baron with some fire in his eyes, too. I wonder if he was able to contribute to the battle, and if so, how. Really thought-provoking. Well done!

cheers, Mel

Your characterization of Helena here is rather different from what I've seen of her in other final battle fics, and I like the change. She's much more...haughty and with attitude here, and she gives off a very regal and ancient air. If there were no mentions of who she was or her being a ghost, I think I could still come to the conclusion that she was one, her "voice" is that ghostly. Her musings in the beginning about her mother and how she "had to have" the diadem were very good and spot-on, character-wise, from what I can tell, and I liked it very much. I especially loved the first paragraph about Rowena liking to "taunt" things. (And I have to say that I laughed at the line about the knickers. :D)

I really liked this! It was well-written, in character and all in all a very enjoyable read. :-)

Wow. This was a great portrayal of Helena Ravenclaw. I liked the sequence of emotions and feelings that she went through until she finally decided at the end that perhaps forgiveness was indeed in the cards. I think that was really neat. And her anger about her actions in stealing the diadem and such was very realistic and compelling. Good job.

Wow. This is wonderfully written, and was a very interesting read.

Everything flows together really well, and I like how you gave me a different perspective on Helena. The beginning, with the little history on Rowena Ravenclaw was so interesting, well written. And I liked the ending, how Helena is finally somewhat free. And how her guilt dies.
Great story!
