Review #1, by peppersweet Colin Creevey

1st January 2014:
Hey! Here for the 12 days of reviewing challenge. I have a real soft spot for Colin Creevey as a character, so this obviously broke my heart into teensy wee pieces. I hate that he had to die in the final battleÖ!

This chapter was really moving, especially with all the repeated mentions of Dennis and the winking eyes. What are the winking eyes? I guess Iíll have to read on to find out, hehe - at first I imagined Colin had charmed photographs of himself to wink at Dennis as a way of signalling whether he was alive or not. Which is silly, but itís what my mind jumped to!

One of my favourite bits was where the stairs formed a whirlpool of sorts and swallowed up the Death Eaters. Very imaginative, and something I can see the castle doing during the final battle. I also really liked how your writing because increasingly fragmented as the fic went on and you used more dashes to break up sentences, showing Colinís growing anxiety and the intensifying action. And the last line was absolutely heartbreaking.

Really lovely chapter - Iíll definitely be back to check out the rest when Iím not so hungover and tired (happy new year, by the way!). Thank you for posting this! ♥

Author's Response: Oh, that idea of the winking eyes is really beautiful too! I guess in this first chapter I was sort of going for that sense of not quite knowing what the winking eyes are, and leaving that up to imagination. Obviously my answer is going to be given in the next two chapters :)

I'm so glad you liked the writing of the battle... I always find actions scenes pretty challenging so I'm glad I did this one well.

Thanks so much for the lovely review! And a happy new year to you too!

Positively brilliant. Simply astounding! I love it. It's a wonderful tribute to Colin Creevey the understated hero. Photography has never been my strong point but candid film has always fascinated me. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I definitely feel like Colin was rather glossed over after CoS, but with the way his character was established, I feel like he would have gone so much further on his own even when he wasn't so much a part of Harry's story anymore. Glad you liked it (:

WOW!!! This is the first fanfiction I have ever read that has actually brought me close to tears! The whole idea of Collin actually knowing is really creepy, but it also makes alot of sense! I can't wait for the last part of the series!! Can't praise you enough! Keep writing!!!

Author's Response: Whoa, thank you so much!! I'm really glad you like this and are sticking with it! I'll have part three up over the weekend, thanks again (:

Wow! This is absolutely amazing, I sincerely hope you continue with this story! You've captured Colin so perfectly and given him a wonderful personality that was never really explored in the books. I love how brave he is, and you described the battle so vividly I almost felt like I was there!

Fantastic story with a brilliant ending. . . I can't wait for more!!!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I have the second and third part written already, they are just undergoing some last edits, but they should be up within a few days. I'm really glad you liked this bit; I hope you stick around for parts 2 and 3! Thanks again :D
