Review #2, by Lizzie Born of Griffins

20th August 2009:
Love the story, mate! It showed how savage the wyverns were coming towards them and how she wanted to give her son a chance by praying, although I don't understand why she prayed to the wind and not to some sort of God or Merlin. You had the intensity right on and I simply love her pray about Godric. Fantastic one-shot. :D

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! I've been wanting to write something like this for a while ever since I started reading medieval fantasy and I guess writing founders was just what the doctor ordered. About the Wind, you have to understand that most of this is metaphoric, and will make sense when Laurels finally is put up. I swear! Till then, thanks so much again!

Wow, this is really good! I love the clipped makes a build - up of tension that it just insanely well done.

Author's Response: Heyo evanlyn! Thanks for reviewing!

Hahaha, I love the clipped sentence style. It breaks things down to the bare actions. Makes the pace go faster and makes your heart beat to their rhythm. Thank you Michael Crichton for that :) Glad you liked it!

Again, thanks for the review!

Review #4, by Lyn Midnight Born of Griffins

That's beautifully written! The mythical atmosphere aids the tragedy and also a new beginning for the boy. And it's amazing how you manage that song/poem-like pace all the time -- it's a pleasure to read. I'll go and read ' a murder of ravens' now. Before that, though, a typo:

"The came with blades sharp as a piercing cry for mercy, but none was given." -- THEY.

I haven't followed the other stories for a while, but I think I'll check them out soon. It's amazing how much you've written already! Keep writing!! :)

Author's Response: Hey Lyn! Glad to see you back in my neck of the woods :) I've missed your reviews!

I am glad you liked the style! Frankly there is a reason for the poetic atmosphere of it. Mainly to distinct it from the styles of Laurels when it comes out, but also, the style actually means something once Laurels comes out and everything is put to perspective. I only have one more prequel to post before Laurels (the Slytherin fic) and hopefully you will like them as well!

Thank you for pointing out the typo. Silly me. Fixed it!

I love your reviews very much and I hope I see more of them in the future :) Thank you so much! It was awesome to hear from you!
