Review #1, by melian Maid Morwena

11th August 2011:
This was really lovely, and I think you absolutely nailed the prompt. THis was exactly the type of story that JKR wrote for Beedle the Bard, complete with the moralistic ending. There was a bit of Aesop in here as well as some Rudyard Kipling - a fable along the lines of "how the leopard got its spots", or, in this case, "how the Cornish pixies became ugly". Yeah, I know, I worded that badly, but you know what I mean. Actually, I'm going to remember this as exactly why the Cornish Pixies look like they do, that's how much I think it fits the fables. Excellent job!!

Author's Response: I feel bad for not answering sooner; I've seen it and it provided much-needed encouragement during a crazy month :)
I've tried thinking up a 'lesson' and include something from the wizarding world, and this is what I came up with. It's good to know it worked out :)
Thanks for the lovely review!

Review #2, by Owlpost68 Maid Morwena

wow, at first I couldn't really see how it could be a tale of beedle's, but the ending changed it all :) I never thought that the cornish pixies may have been beautiful before they turned blue and weird looking. I absolutely love it! very worthy of a tale of beedle's. I think my favorite character was Jowan. I personally think he could have done better than Morwena, but then there wouldn't be a story :) I thought the story taught a great lesson to not be vain or arrogant lol it might have changed a lot in James Potter's personality wouldn't it?
Great job!

Author's Response: Feels good to know it worked for you! Thanks so much for this review :)

Review #3, by Mintleaf Maid Morwena

What beautiful description! I really like that you ended on a moral/lesson, an essential touch! I was going to say him 'lying with broken limbs and neck' was a bit gory for a children's story, but then I thought back to how unpleasant the Tale of Three Brothers was haha! Also, I'm not sure if you've noticed but through the beginning of the story you've called Morwena by three different names, Morwena, Morvena and Morvenna! Anyway, this was charming! :)

Author's Response: Hello! Thank you so much for your feedback on this, as this was something I hadn't tried before. I appreciate your pointer, I changed the spelling of the name, but I thought I got them all; apparently not. I think an edit is in order ;)
