Review #2, by Singularity I'm Still Pretty.

21st August 2010:
This was a very interesting and very truthful one shot. When something major happens to a person and causes them to change, I think it is human nature to look into a mirror and see if that change is evident to other people. Usually it’s not, and that’s disappointing.

I enjoyed the characterization. Lucy reminded me a lot of Percy back in PoA when he tried to cheer Harry up about not being able to go to Hogsmeade, but only succeeds in making him feel worse.

There’s one line that stood out to me as being a little awkwardly worded: “Lucy was not even stupid enough to stand around an angry Dominique for one extra second…” Maybe you could rephrase the beginning to something like “Even Lucy was not stupid enough…” that just seems like it would flow better to me, but just my opinion.

I did find it a bit hypocritical for Rose to think so negatively of Dominique’s insult of Lucy, since she had been thinking such negative comments herself, but I’m sure that happens a lot.

Overall, I enjoyed this story. The angst wasn’t overwhelming and it seemed realistically done.


Author's Response: I've always worded things a little weirdly. I try to edit that out each time I revise a piece, because my first time publishing something always includes a little bit of those whoopsies.

And Rose is perfectly okay with thinking insults, because no one can read her mind, but perfect Rose would never verbally insult someone. I meant for the hypocrisy to exist there.

thank you so much! (:

This was written beautifully! I really love how you wrote Dominique, so powerfull - thats how I imagine her to be also, having a mother like Fleur.

Also loved how you described the single tear - found that lovely.

Review #5, by me_thehplvr I'm Still Pretty.

11th July 2010:
It was very somber, but very enlightening. How many people do we look at everyday and see a gorgeous smile and believe that everything is fine? I'm pretty sure I see at least one person each day doing exactly what Rose is doing.

Next time, I'm going to try to be like Dom and let these people know that emotion is alright, and perfectly normal.

It was beautiful!

Author's Response: Thank you so much. :) I really, really, really loved this piece. I'm not usually one for angst and whatnot, but it just felt right.
