Review #1, by Septyrikon Relief

26th April 2010:
Honestly, I had never thought about this... But it makes sense that even someone so involved with Voldemort would be in his position only out of fear. I mean, not all of those who disagree with his "convictions" would have the guts to openly oppose him, so this was very interesting.

Plus, you don't get much of an inside view on the doings of the death eaters, that was a nice addition :)

Author's Response: Thanks darlin!
It wasn't something I had really thought about either untill I joined the challenge ;) But as I rolled the idea around in my head I came to the conclusion that if all the Death Eaters were really loyal to the Dark Lord, they woulnd't have disbanded so quickly after his first downfall. Also we know that Voldemort controled most of him followers through frear, so it would only make since that he, and those who really were loyal to him, would recruit through fear as well. ;)
As always thanks for the R&R

this was really good. i could feel his pain and had a better understanding of what he probably did go through during his hogwarts years and later on in life. it was written wonderfully and very descriptive.


Author's Response: Thank you so much. I think the point I was shooting for in this story is that not all Death Eaters are evil, some are simply victims of circumstance and weak constitutions ;)
Thanks for your R&R!
Much Love

Hi, it's me again! :)

Wow, man. That was really intense. And it was a great account of a death eater! I seriously love death eater stories, especially ones about the lesser known death eaters, because they are rarely talked about and their reason for joining the dark lord is hardly ever discussed. You did an awesome job! I totally forgot this guy even existed until now, lol.

The only thing that kind of confused me, but over the course of the story you made it work, was the part when Antonin sees Tom Riddle. Totally correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking that Tom Riddle would have been in school years before Lucius Malfoy. Like I said though, you made it work, and by the story, I was way less preocupied by my obsessive history disorder (haha) and into your story. :)

I have honestly never read about Antonin Dolohov before, and this was a great example. I'm glad this is the first fic I've read with him in it, and you did a great job!


PS: I loved your response to my review on your other story, and I feel the same way! Your version of Ginny is what should be used in all Draco/Ginny stories. It would make them more interesting. :P

Author's Response: LOL, I'm glad you went back tot he request and saw the comment about the timeline error being intentional... I really need to go back and put an A/N in the actual story because I've had quite a few comments on that.

Anyway.. thank you for another wonderful review :) Like you I really didn't remember who this guy was untill his name was given to me for the challenge, then I had to go look him up... lol.

I'm glad you enjoyed my reasoning on why he became a Death Eater... I don't think I've read any other stories that are just about why they joined, but in my mind I see Voldie having more followers out of fear than the actual urge to do evil...

Once again, glad you enjoyed it and thanks for reviewing!

very lovely.

i thought that you did an amazing job with this story. besides the major timeline issue (which really was not an issue at all considering the fact that it was solely intentional) everything seemed to be accurate and well written. your word choice was amazing and the flow was definitely complimenting to what was being written. nice job. i would say more but only a general request was asked of and therefore i will not work to repeat similar points. keep on writing.

Author's Response: thank you so much.. i'm so glad you enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun writng this, mostly because it's so differnt from my usual storeis.
I look forward to more of your reviews :)

Hey Moondanser83!

Thanks so much for entering my challenge.

I absolutely loved reading this fanfic. It was really well-written. I'm going to have a tough time deciding on the winner.

Your beginning was awesome. Dolohov's family not being in Slytherin, and mentioning his great-grandfather to be an outcast and in Slytherin, made his regret seem more believable. He hadnt been raised with all the pureblood rubbish...

Dolohov could not have been in school with Voldemort. Lucius Malfoy was in fifth year when James and Lily came to school and at their time Voldemort was already gaining power. This is something huge and I really cant overlook it. This will cost you points. :(

Other than that, the story was a wonderful read. The end was my favorite. It really must be a relief to be freed from a life as horrible as Dolohov.


Author's Response: LOL.. so glad you liked it :)
Yeah, I know the timeline was a little messed up, but I took a bit of creative (AU) license to make it fit my story line ;)
regardless I had a great time writing this piece, and I'm glad you had as much fun reading it as I did writing it!

Good luck picking a winner! LOL
I'm sure there are a lot of wonderful entries!

Review #6, by never_too_old Relief

I truly liked this story. Your depiction of a minor character is really good. I love when people write about the different characters in this story. It just allows us to see the different sides of the story. The only thing wrong is the timeline, which you probably are already aware. They wouldn't have been in school the same time as Riddle, although you wrote it well enough to believe they could. :) Great story.

Author's Response: hehe.. i know.. and honestly it killed me to do it but it fit my story there's the joy of
I'm so glad you liked it!

Much Love

Aww that was another sweet story Thea. You will make me a cry-baby with all your stories ... also Is there some compliment that i haven't said before, oh yeah you are one amazing writer lol I just lurve your works ... this is just amazing as usual!!

I loved the way you expressed Antonin Dolohov's feelings ... trust me i didn't know so many things like he had distracted the Trio in that bar ... i mean did he really do that? if not i sure believed it after reading this lol Psst nother secret i actually didn't know anything about this death eater i mean for Merlin's sake i thought his name was Antonio Dolohov till now o_0

This was really good, i love you and your work just brilliant there were little spelling mistakes but no harm no foul :D My favorite line was "Branding us like barn animals so that everyone would know who we belonged to," it was so sad and so true ...

I will give 10/10 good luck with your other stories and happy writing!! Cant wait to read more of your stories *huggles*

Lots and lots of love

Author's Response: LOL.. yeah! Another wonderful review from Aime! :) hehe.. so yeah, this was written for limelight's challenge and the Deatheater was assigned not thats the part I think was the So to answer your question yes Dolohov was one of the two Deatheaters waiting for the trio at the cafe when they ran from Bill and Fleur's wedding. I'm so glad you enjoyed this one because it's really different from most of my other stories. Also I think it goes along the lines that most of the people who served Voldy didn't really want to be Oh and yeah, that was probably my favorite line too ;)

Can't wait to see what you think of my other stories!

Much Love & Huggles!
