Review #1, by Rumpelstiltskin 

15th September 2017:
Hello again! :)

I adore how Gilderoy's penchant for lying and exaggeration pops right out at the reader right from the beginning. His gasconading tale of his first accidental magical happening in combination with his mother's response of throwing him a lavish party (with a real dragon, to boot) made me laugh. The characterization is just too perfect in this.

And he would have a ton of autobiographies, too :p. I also love the continued characterization through the scene where he decided if he wasn't particularly talented at something, then it wasn't worth his time as well as his response to not being paid attention to.

As a standalone chapter, I really enjoyed this depiction of Gilderoy, and I thought you did an excellent job as far as characterization went. As a companion to the first piece, I thought it was a nice follow-up, keeping the theme of 'to glory' throughout. I especially liked that you achieved this with two very different characters in very different ways.

Looking forward to reading the final piece in this!

Review #2, by Your Secret Valentine 

28th February 2017:
Hello, my dears!
Here with one last little present for you! (But I'll be back anyway once Secret Valentine is over)

I loved this! Gilderoy's stories are always so... interesting? Funny? Surreal? Allora of that together, probably.

I loved the little episode of his childhood. Such a smart child, indeed... I also loved how everyone was just plainly ignoring him, and how he kept making excuses about it... he is just so full of himself and so convinced of being extraordinary. You really captured his personality perfectly.

One last thing I really loved was the eagle'se riddle. It's awesome that you managed to think such a clever one, and so poignant for Gilderoy's character, too.

To cut it short, this was another great work by you. Wonderful job, my love!
See you soon!
Your Secret Valentine

Author's Response: Thank you so much, not-so-secret Valentine ;) ♥

Review #3, by Ron 4 Hermione 

9th January 2017:
Hey there, so I thought I’d finish off this story and leave a little holiday cheer! :D

Aha, oh dear, well I suppose it’s nice to know that Gilderoy’s, is arrogance the right word?, came from somewhere and he wasn’t just born like that. I like how you show his writing skills coming through at a young age, even if they were discouraged.

I like the contrast you’ve created, between Gilderoy thinking he’s amazing and adored and the reality with no one paying him any extra attention and life going on as normal. Wow, his reaction to things like the students moving away and the gobstones team is actually rather sad. Despite what he thinks it must be quite lonely.

I love the way you’ve wrote Gilderoy here, especially his reaction and thoughts on the various situation. Looking forward to seeing how you portray Percy Weasley!

Shaza :)
