Review #1, by nott theodore Dancing.

10th July 2014:
Hello there!

This was a very different piece to a lot of the stories I've read which are this short, but nevertheless I think you did a great job of telling a powerful story in a short amount of words. I liked your choice of James II and an OC, Nora, in this story, and the way that you chose to write something different with them.

The title, dancing, worked well for this - the short sections were like tentative steps towards and away from each other at times and I could picture it as a sort of dance. I felt sorry for Nora here in this story, as she seemed to struggle to speak about her emotions, but I liked reading about the two of them together a lot. I think you built up a small picture of their relationship well in the short amount of words you used here, and especially in the short sections. There was some really lovely description in this as well!

Author's Response: Hi!

I'm so glad you enjoyed the more obscure aspect of the relationship that I chose to expose, I thought it made for a more interesting read than only writing about the stereotypical lovey-dovey stuff.

Thank you so much for your lovely review; I'm over the moon that you liked this, it is one of my more unique pieces. x

Review #2, by Aarthi Dancing.

Wow. Powerful. I'm not quite sure I fully understand it, but I'm quite sure I don't want to. I doubt you, as the author, fully understand this story yourself, and I think there's something so beautiful and comforting in that. So well writen. Absolutely loved it - probably my favorite story on this site. I love you as a writer, and everything that your style encompasses (from the quirky like Hogwarts: Mental Institution, to the suspenseful & intense like Breathe Slow). I hope you still check these, I've noticed you haven't posted anything new in a while. Well, anyways, I'm a huge fan of your work since a few days ago when I found you on the random story function. Your work is always so broad - it doesn't have to be a HP story, yet somehow it is. Well now I'm just rambling. What I'm trying to say is that I apreciate your work so much, and I really hope you keep writing. Never give up! Never stop dancing~

Author's Response: Oh wow, thank you so much!
I do regularly come on the site, but I don't always sign in. I'm so glad I decided to! I've been thinking about posting something new for a while now; I have so many beginnings of stories but I don't know which to continue.
Everything you said means an incredible amount to me, you don't even understand the extent of the joy I feel reading your review.
Thank you.

Review #3, by BeaJerry Dancing.

4th March 2012:
You know what this reminds me of? Two things. First, the story Clash- James' ex was called Nora and she was a self-harming muggle? But the other thing, is this spin-off mini series of the Hunger Games, about Finnick and Annie. I don't know if you've seen it, or even READ the Hunger Games, but it's just like the final scene! Ahh anyway, rambling a bit there ;p this was really good, I really liked how you described her feelings in such an abstract way... I want to read more omg.
10/10 ;3 xo

Author's Response: Oh of course I've read both, they are both absolutely wonderful and I'm honoured you would say that this reminds you of the two!

I thought this might be too obscure for some, but I'm so glad you like it! Thank you xo

Hey there
I love the line, 'Dreams were not dreams'. That is very true. I like that this is something very different and that when I did get to the end I can see why the name Dancing. I feel that you at some points put more emotions behind the way they came out than others. But this is the kind of story that once you are almost at the end you can see the flow and how it has done it the whole time. You feel that its a bit choppy but then you get it and I love this. Good story but sad thoughts that they are based around.

Author's Response: Hey!
I was going for a sort of different approach, so that's wonderful that you picked up on that! Yeah I see where you get that from, but then Nora's a kind of ... emotional mute if you will. She's not too open, and then there's some bursts of them. She's a little off-kilter ha ha.
Thank you so much! xo

I am sorry, I didnt exactly get what you are trying to say.. :(

Author's Response: Don't apologize! I understand perfectly where you're coming from. I don't think I was trying to say anything, just experimenting and trying flow-writing and such. Not my most eloquent piece, but you know. Oh well :)
