The sword of Gryffindor? Seriously? How on Earth do you even start going about writing a story from the viewpoint of a sword?!

Well, however you do that, you did it well. I love how dispassionate and objective this story is - there's no hope (other than for a clean down) and no taking sides. There is only the values that the sword has been said to possess, and the instinct to be used in fighting evil, which fits with everything we know about swords and Gryffindor in general.

A shockingly unique yet strangely enjoyable one shot!

Wow! Yet another brilliant piece both in plot and the overall writing of the piece. I must say, I really loved this piece, and it seemed to be another perfect choice to perceive one of the major events in the battle from. It's interesting that as an object is able to determine the difference between good and evil, the evil that lies within Nagini and the good that we see in Neville and his strength as he wields the sword to perform the final deed.

It's interesting in many senses that we are able to see so much through the perspective of a sword and in a way that we gain quite a lot about it's fine history too! Overall this was yet another brilliant piece that was an absolute pleasure to read!

This melds exceptionally well with "Pride." Nicely done. And this was a wonderfully turned phrase: "fire of the Hat has found its way into this young man's resolve." Applause worthy.

I never would've thought of the Sword's perspective, either. Very creative. And, I really liked: "All I hope now is that this boy thinks to clean me off before using me again."

Another nice story about an inanimate object. I love the sword's comment, "this boy must indeed be a true Gryffindor".
One tiny niggle, the sword being "swiped" through the air made me stop. It's not a swordy word. I shouldn't complain, but sliced or cut might have been better.
(Okay my criticism is of your choice of one word!) (-:

This is great, Mel! I really like the way that you can take what should in all reality be an inanimate object and then create a perspective using them that's unique and interesting. You did it with the Elder Wand and I now see that you've also done it with the Sword of Gryffindor. I really enjoyed reading this(:

Wow! This was so very interesting!

From the perspective of a sword - that is definitely something new and original! At first this was about Harry, it took me awhile to realise that it was Neville. I like how you portrayed Neville as someone a determined fighter, and a true Gryffindor. Overall I thought this was really well written, and I really enjoyed it. Basically, just the whole perspective from a sword thing fascinated me, and I think you did a great job.

I loved your last lines as well. "Evil has been averted. My work is done." Great ending words!
