Aww this is so nice that the owls were set free so they wouldn't get hurt and killed by the death eaters. I never once thought about the owls when I read about and thought about the battles, you're a genius for thinking it!
My favourite part was when the owls all crowded around the window to look out at the 'excitement' haha I just had a fabulous image of hundreds of owls trying to see out of a window and shoving each other hehe. Such a fantastic and original idea! And you wrote it so wonderfully!

Review #3, by Capella Black

Is there any viewpoint you can't make work? If there was going to be, I'd have thought it was that of an owl. I would have been wrong.

Writing from an animal's point of view is always difficult, as it's very easy to anthropomorphise them, and make them more aware, or more emotionally involved, than they really would be. You completely keep away from that, and instead manage to convey a completely objective point of view without any human attachments or biases.

And yet, there is still compassion and sweetness in this story, brought by the - correctly - unnamed man and woman who set the owls free. It's lovely to contrast the simple detached minds of the owls from the compassionate and loving actions of the humans - neither seem wrong, and it just makes the human actions seem even more touching.

No con criticism to make here, it's just good stuff all the way.

Yet another really original POV for this collab, this time the school owls. What an inspired choice! I like how you mentioned the differences between this year and the previous ones, where they are utilised less and have no contact with their owners, and their impressions of the battle itself were fantastic. Then, the two who set them free - I have no idea who they are (and it doesn't really matter) but the very fact that they thought to do that is lovely. A really well-written and well-thought out piece. Well done!

cheers, Mel

Awwh, this is sad, yet beautiful. I haven't yet read one about the owls, and I loved this to bits. I've never thought about the plights of the owls, and I loved where you went with this. The perspective was great, and I loved how you portrayed the owls. It was so interesting to read their "thoughts", and the end paragraph was definitely so happy and beautiful :)
A really well written story that i really enjoyed reading! :)

Well. That's definitely original to write about the owls of Hogwarts! I would have never thought of this in a million years. It was written well and I didn't notice any big errors or anything with it. Not much action, but it was a nice read nonetheless. All in all I think you did a good job, especially regarding creativity.
