Hi! And Happy Birthday from the Gryffie Birthday Reviews!

I absolutely LOVE Greek mythology, so obviously I love this too! I love the fact that the wizardry was woven into the story so effortlessly and cleanly, it made it really believable and, well I just LOVE it :D

Review #2, by Secret Santa~ Pandora's Box

20th December 2011:
Woah, this story was awesome too! I really like what you've done with it! You explained the legend really well and it was really detailed; I knew exactly what was going on, so now I don't have to ask any questions here!
One spelling mistake that I caught: you said "Legimens" instead of "Leglimens" Just put that L in there and you'll be fine ;)
I absolutely love love LOVE that you included the unforgivable curses in Pandora's Box. That is a brilliant idea, and I really am quite jealous of it! I never would have thought of that! Also, is the elder wand released with the box? "a wand that clung to certain people and wafted in the air"? I'm not sure what that was... or maybe I'm just being silly :P
Anyways, this is a really good, unique and historically accurate story and I really enjoyed it :3
Happy holidays! Xxx

Author's Response: WOW, I'm so glad you like it so much! And you don't need to be jealous because I'm sure your stories are awesome too :).

This is a really good take on the story of Pandora's box! I really enjoyed it and I never really thought that the God's were just wizards, but it works. The way it was written was almost like a bed time story, which is awesome. There are a couple of things to improve on, in my opinion, and these things are the flow of the story and also one little typo.

So, first, the flow. I found it a little difficult to follow at times, so maybe you could explain certain things in a different way? For example there are a few sentences where you say something like "Bob grinned at himself in the mirror, and picked up the hairbrush that Bob had bought"... (Obviously, that wasn't from your story, it was just an example, LOL :D ) Which just sounds a little awkward. I hope that made sense, lol. Although, this is just my personal opinion, and, to be honest, I'm not great with flow, so take my opinion with a pinch of salt, haha.

Oh, yeah. There was one typo at the start of the story: "only mortals where men" where should have been were. Apart from this there were no spelling or grammar mishaps. :)

Good story. It was really interesting, and I liked the ending, with the idea of giving people magical abilities in this way. Well done!

Author's Response: Awww, thank you so much for the wonderful review! It was so awesome! Yeah, I do need to work on the flow, and a typo, oops!
Thanks again for the review, it made my day!

Review #4, by Strings Pandora's Box

Hey :)

It's really like a magical legend. Or, how magic fits into ancient cultures. I read once a theory claiming that the Greek Gods were just very powerful witches and wizards who took over things. Could do wandless magic and had a philosopher's stone... Until the muggles suspected too much :)

It's great how you looked at this challenge from your own POV. It matters only to a very limited level what I meant when I posted the challenge - it's important where you took it to.

"Zeus was unhappy." I'm always amazed at how gods in old stories are surprised when their plans won't work. I mean, why put in the box things you don't want out? Maybe when you're too powerful for too long it affects you in unexpected ways.

This was interesting.

Thanks for participating in my challenge!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! It was great fun to write actually, I liked writing about Pandora the most. The only thing with this is some of the names are so darn long you spell them wrong every time lol!

Yeah, I decided to stick to the legend but add a magical twist and I thought the gods being magical was the only way to do it logically. I really think your challenge is a good idea and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did!

Good luck on judging,
Emma xx
