Review #1, by krazyboutharryginny To London, With Love

19th March 2015:
Omg! I really hope you update this again at some point, because I love it so much. It is so, so beautifully written. It's very poetic and prose-y, which, I will admit, is my favourite sort of story. :D
I grew fonder and fonder of Padma with every sentence. She's very, very nicely done. She's a character who's so often overlooked in fandom. Some people choose to write about her, but make her very similar to Parvati. I adore how different you made them.
Great chapter!

Author's Response: I really don't know whether I'll update this again to be honest :( Frankly, I've lost the thread of inspiration I had for it and I can't remember how to find it again.

Padma is overlooked and I do adore her and Parvati. Thank you for your kind words :)

Review #2, by krazyboutharryginny The Brink

19th March 2015:
Oh my gosh, I LOVE this! It doesn't seem scattered at all. The flow of the story actually works very well, as it's meant to be Padma recalling her life. Often recollections ARE scattered, so any scattered-ness (??) worked!
The descriptions of Padma's early life in India are so, so beautiful. They have a haunting sort of vibe to them, but not in a scary way. They just felt sort of ethereal? It was really, really cool.
I'm assuming Padma goes back to India in the next chapter? I hope so!

Review #3, by nightingale14 To London, With Love

17th November 2012:
I just HAD to read this; it's probably the Indian in me :D
I was born in India, and my family immigrated to the US. I was only there for about 8-months to a year before moving to Dubai, but we go back there every few years, and I don't know...There's just something about the place.
Yes, some of the streets are dirty. There's poverty. But there's magic. The monuments hold magic, and still stand regally. Even the lowest beggar will welcome you to his home and share what little he has. You won't find kinder people. Every thing about it adds to its charm.
I must ask; are you Indian yourself? If you aren't, then this is probably the best description I've seen of India from a non-Indian person (and people who aren't Indian either!). If you are, then yay :)
I love the delicate writing style, and how you're taking a character not often seen or mentioned in the books. It's so unique and insanely well-written.
And if I'm being honest, it's exactly how I felt after moving to the US.
Please update more of this soon please! I absolutely cannot wait to read more of it.

Review #4, by potter_nerd The Brink

2nd June 2012:
''Muggles were still there, but an odd spark, a woman never growing old, soft, bodiless voices whispering in the wind…I thought perhaps India had seen it before. India was never surprised, merely politely curious.''
You write beautifully. I don't have any other words to describe it.
I haven't read any stories on either of the Patil twins before, so I can't compare, but I have to say that you really nailed Padma's character.
Are you an Indian by any chance? Because your descriptions were perfect. And it's not scattered at all.

Wow. I've never read a story focusing on Padma (or either of the twins) but I'm so intrigued and excited to continue reading this.

Great start.

Recenseo 2012.

Review #7, by dirtydeedsdonedirtcheap The Brink

4th May 2012:
I actually really didn't think it was scattered. I thought this was a great first chapter. It caught my attention. Padma is someone I have never read about before and I love how you have woven India into the story so far, even though it's mere thoughts about it and distant memories. You paint a beautiful picture.

Author's Response: Awesome, thank you! Writing about magical India was certainly a stretch of my imagination, but I'm really happy that you liked it! Thank you for reading :)
