Review #1, by envinyata Fufu at the Dementorsí Eating Disorder Clinic

7th April 2009:
I hope you're still reading reviews since this was posted a long time ago! I'm really glad I read it - this is such a fun, humorous story. It would be wonderful if you decided to update.

I thought it would be interesting to read because I have an eating disorder and I work with/advocate for women who have eating disorders as well, so to me this is a really important topic. When I first saw the description, I thought it would be impossible to pull off being sensitive about the subject matter and being humorous, but somehow you managed it. I absolutely love the "going to live with the Weasleys" storyline, and Ginny and Luna and "inner peace" like it's actually a physical state one can reach and stay at! The way you wrote it made the idea come off really well instead of just silly and unbelievable. How you portrayed Fufu actually made me feel like I was her, or like I could understand what she was going through, even down to Ginny and Luna trying to get her to wear colors. And I know from extensive personal experience about the idiocy of any kind of medical staff, especially in eating disorder clinics, so I tripped out at the part with Miss Susie Sunshine.

The things I didn't really care for were the overwhelming emphasis on the y/ie joke...it just seemed too repetitive after awhile. There are a lot of other ways you could have made Susie (excuse me, Sunnie!) annoying that would probably have come off more effectively. Your writing is also technically really good - I only found one really irritating grammar mistake (near the end when dementors is pluralized as "dementor's," which is the possessive form).

Thanks for such a well-written, lovely, humorous story about a very sensitive topic!

Author's Response: Thank you for such a well-thought-out review! I'm glad you thought I handled the subject with some level of maturity; I didn't want to be offensive while still being humorous. Yeah, the y/ie thing does drag on a bit, now that I look over it. Thanks again, and I hope you can check out some of my more serious and -- in my opinion -- superior stories. ^_^
