Review #1, by Elysium Of Sprites and Goblins

12th July 2010:
This was delightful. You're such an eloquent writer, Ayesha and it still comes through in your word selection, the diction and the descriptions within each of your stories. This is no different. I loved the clever use of capitalisation in this story, because although it was essentially read from the perspective of her father, it still created this very childlike view of things. "He was Favourite." and other similar snippets were a perfect example of this.

One thing that struck me when reading this, is the in-between nature of Hermione's existence (and indeed all other Muggleborns), she is a freak according to muggles at her party and yet she will grow up to be considered a lesser being by wizarding society. It's a sad, but unfortunately very real facet of human nature.

I love drabbles and vignettes, there honestly aren't enough of them around. They just have this wonderful ability to transport the reader, but also to capture the profound impact one moment can have in a way that a standard one-shot cannot.

I know it has taken me a while to read this, but I really enjoyed it and am now going to actively badger you to write that update you've been talking about.
