For once, I actually recognize the actors in a banner. I don't remember their names (Ioan something or other, and the lady had a name beginning with an R), but they played two of the main roles in the movie "Amazing Grace," didn't they?
Anyway, on to your story. This is the third SC3 piece I've read with an OC ghost, so I suppose I can't say how unique and interesting anymore. Although it was. I very much liked the way you had an anonymous student encounter Henrietta, and then had the Bloody Baron, of all people (ghosts?), recount the story! I enjoyed that device. Also, the story itself was quite moving and sad and emotional. I don't really like Henrietta much, but I definitely feel sorry for her.Author's Response: I don't really recall any of the actors 'cept Ioan :P but yes, they are from Amazing Grace. I'm glad that you found my story unique and interesting! I really wanted it to be the Bloody Baron that told the student - why? I have no idea. I thought, eh, why not? Originally, I was going to use Nearly-Headless Nick but my head told me it would be much more ironic to use the Baron.
I agree that Henrietta is to be pitied more than liked :) Thanks so much for the lovely review! :D Report Review
Wow, that was chilling. And your writing was incredible. You wrote Henrietta's proper family very nicely. I felt you captured the way people spoke a century or more ago amazingly. It was a great story.
I thought that student who wanted to know of Henrietta's life had no reason to want that information so desperately, so maybe you could've explained why she just HAD to know. Also, it was a little unrealistic that the Bloody Baron, so moody, to submit to a student.
Otherwise, great. The story flowed well, I saw everything clearly. The writing overall was incredible. Nice work!Author's Response: Thanks for the review! :) I was going to have Nick explain it to her (which I think she asked out of curiosity, really) but I kinda wanted to play with the Baron. I'm sure he's intimidating, but it doesn't particularly say somewhere that he wouldn't submit to a student. :D Report Review
That was very well-written. I hadn't really ever wondered about the Hogwarts ghosts but I guess there's a story behind each of them.Author's Response: Thank you so much! Each one of us has a story, even ghosts! ^^ Thanks for the review. Report Review
Very nice story! I think you could have done a little more with their courtship in order for the impact of his betrayal to really hit the readers, but your writing style is very elegant. I enjoyed reading it! :)Author's Response: I agree so much. My word was being funky and recorded my number of words weird, so I thought I had over eleven thousand words when I really had just over two-thousand. It was already too late when I submitted it and queue was being funny..ah, well. :D Thanks for your review :) Report Review
