14th August 2011:
I loved how she was just so pumped full of revenge and anger and was ready to take down the death eaters no matter what happened to her. It's amazing what revenge can do to adrenaline and you wrote her anger extremely well, I felt like I was feeling her anger along with her. And when she met him at the end the fact that she waited until he turned around just showed that she wasn't going to do it in a cowardly way.
Amazing one shot.

Go Hannah! Loved this. I adored her determination and resolve to avenge her mother's death, despite people openly thinking that she couldn't do it because, as you put it so nicely, "Hufflepuffs don't kill." Well, maybe not usually, but you can't assume that to always be the case, can you? I loved the bit where Travers thought Hannah was her mother because they looked and sounded similar, and her doing the deed so dispassionately was excellent. No regrets, no looking back. Her job was done. Excellent work!

cheers, Mel

Woo! Go Hannah Abbott! You know, I had never actually considered that Hannah would have wanted to fight in the war so bad because her Mum had been killed by one of them. Had we known in canon who her Mum's murderer was? I don't think we did, but I like that you've made it so that she knew anyways. Revenge, especially in the kind of setting, is very sweet. This setting makes it seem all that more forgiveable, too. Because that's usually the grey area there--killing as revenge, right or wrong? But I believe Hannah. This was right.

All those thoughts of what Travers had cost her by killing her mother made her sympathize with her even more. I'm not sure how neccessary it was to mention that stereotype thing so much, though. I do agree that people make hufflepuffs into these super-friendly but braindead type of people, but I'm not sure that they would go so far as to say that they wouldn't be able to kill anyone. Hufflepuffs are also loyal to, aren't they? Loyalty could lead to wanting revenge... Anyways. I think that having Susan think Hannah wasn't serious would have been the right amount of that kind of attitude. Not that it made anything worse, I just don't think it was really NEEDED, you know?

Cheers to Hannah for winning! And thank you for writing and posting this! It was good to see someone going after for revenge and having them come out no worse for the wear. Good job!

Great story! It was well written! I've never thought about Hannah Abbott's mother, but I have thought about the grief she must've felt. I've never thought about revenge though. It seems appropriate that she manages to kill Travers, and I like Hannah's determination. Including the stereotype Hufflepuff made the story more interesting! Loved this! Really well written and an enjoyable read!
