Review #1, by magic29 For Those Who Died They Live: For Those Who Live They Died

12th June 2007:
I really liked it, it was very creative and unique, starting it off with crookshanks and I loved the ending with Trelawney & Firenze, on the whole I just like the originality of it all. Now that's what I call a job well done :D
Cheers,
Magic

Author's Response: Why thank you very much. I was lucky to think of Trelawny and Firenze to end it off otherwise it would never have been entered at all!
I'm very glad that you liked it, it was my first ever competition entry.

Review #2, by AndrinaBlack For Those Who Died They Live: For Those Who Live They Died

30th May 2007:
I love this story! It's a kind of feel good story. I was also happy to see some stories in this cathegory which were not only about the battle and lots of people dieing.

I especially liked the beginning of the story where it is kind of from Crookshank's point of view. I also like all the small details you have put in this, like the giant squid having a look at the party. The end bit is nice in the way that you get to tell about what is happening and has happened to everyone. I also like it that the seers notice that they can get along too.
A really enjoyable story!

Author's Response: Thanks alot, Crookshanks was originally going to go through the whole thing and almost witness everything as he went along as I told the story, but that was not flexible in what I wanted to portray and then I came up with the idea of the seers at the end, which was lucky, if I hadn't thought of that in time this story would be in the rubbish bin with numerous others!
I'm really glad that you liked it, although I wouldn't say that Firenze and Trelawny were quite getting along, my theory is that Trelawny only ended up there because she was drunk and they didn't want her at the party!
Glad that it was enjoyable, I read through some of the others before writing this and thought, but it is supposed to say what happens to everyone when they leave Hogwarts! So I took that view on it and wrote about the characters that I can see in my minds eye.
Thanks a lot for reviewing, it is to undergo some serious editing eventually, to bring it all up to scratch as I am not completely happy with it yet!

Review #3, by ggaabby For Those Who Died They Live: For Those Who Live They Died

Great job! Too bad you didn't win. :(

Author's Response: Thank you vrey much. I didn't deserve to win, this I am not happy with myself yet, it needs some major improvements in the middle and a lot of the authors on there are so much more talented. I did it for some fun and to see if I could get any votes against such opponents, to get sixth place in my category I think it was I was really happy about, look out for moer at the next one!
Thanks for the review, I hope you enjoyed it.

Review #4, by ElissandrAnne For Those Who Died They Live: For Those Who Live They Died

29th May 2007:
I loved your story when I read it for the first time during the Writer's Duel - yeah, I read all the stories, so I could vote in each category! I still love it now. And I promised to myself I would review when I had the opportunity. So here I am!

It's a "happy ending" story with a healthy dose of humor. It's good to see I'm not the only one who thinks Harry will live. hehe Harry dying and/or being a Horcrux... it's so cliché now! lol. The second part is very original. You did a good job. Top mark. ;)

Author's Response: Thank you very much ElissandreAnne. I honestly don't know about Harry, I could just picture the celebrations and he was in it, the only characters I honestly could not picture there are Remus, Hagrid and Ginny. Conincidentally prominent characters revolving around Harry. Hagrid the protector, Remus almost the father figure and Ginny his love. I can't see the trio dying though, I just think that united they are almost invincible, I can't see one without the others, I think we are going to get nothing or everything with those guys!
I'm glad you liked the ending, you cannot imagine how bad it was if I carried on the way I was going, the middle bit I am still not happy with so I quickly changed it about four hours before my time was up. Writers block at really the wrong moment there!
Thanks for reviewing.
