Review #1, by The Basilisk A Study of Love

29th March 2015:
Hello little Ravenclaw, it is I, the Basilisk.

This was beautiful. I'm appalled you call it "meagre excuse of a fic" because really it's very good. You've captured raw emotion very well here and I could feel the pain of Molly while reading thisss. The descriptions flow wonderfully and the imagery isss perfect. What I loved about thisss was the writing style - the broken fragments worked really well with the theme.

The over all theme and plot wasss nicely conceptualised and executed. I think you did a very good job of telling your story so well in such a short fic. Definitely makesss for a powerful, deep and touching read. I'm glad I slithered out of my Chamber to read this. You've stirred feelings in me that I, being a giant snake, would not normally feel. Good on you =)

Hiss Hiss,
The Basilisk

Author's Response: Thank you so much!

Wow . . . just, wow. That's all I can say.

This was brilliant, I'm finding it hard to express my feelings for this but it was brilliant and I loved it and just . . . wow.

There aren't many stories written about Molly the second and even less ones that are sad and depressing so this was something new for me. I admire your ability to write such raw emotions. I think you've captured heartbreak perfectly.

I'm pretty sure anyone who has lost someone that they're close to or that they loved has felt this or at the very least something close to this.

I've never been one of those people who have enjoyed angst or anything depressing but you've really made it work. And that's a big thing for me because anyone who can make me enjoy a piece of writing that is sad and will make me sad has a gift.

At first I was confused because I didn't understand whose point of view this was, whether it was Molly's or Rhy's but then I finally figured out that you were switching between them.

Were the numbers point of view breaks or did they actually have a deeper meaning than that because that's the one thing that I've been wondering throughout this entire thing.

But anyway, this was really well done and I'm so glad that I got the chance to read this.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you mentioned that you could get the raw emotions. I wanted it to be very raw. The numbers before each section indicated the timeline. If you put them in order the story becomes linear as right now it isn't. Thank you for this lovely review and I'm leaving yours tonight!

Hello Char! Nice to meet you :) I really liked that this story was in second person and how the fragments are broken up but still numbered so your brain can make sense of it. This was very well written and enjoyable!

Author's Response: Hi LLG! Thanks so much for coming to take a look at this story! I'm glad that you were able to make sense of the non-linear format :)

Hi Char, I am here for the review swap!

What made me want to read this story out of all your other stories is probably because the title. "A Study of Love," sounds very interesting and thoughtful. It seems like this is in second person since the audience is addressed by 'you' and 'your.' Then at the same time you switch to let us see both of their feelings and thoughts which is nice.

This story flows well. The description is very thorough. The emotions you portrayed in this one-shot is wow. It is like your mirrored their pain onto the readers so we could feel it.

Another thing I liked is that we slowly found out how they feel in love and who they were. I knew who Molly was in the beginning but I didn't know Rhys. As I kept reading I found out that he was a curse breaker, that used to be her friend before he was her lover, and then he was her husband.

Amazingly written.

Author's Response: Hey Sama :)

It's lovely seeing you around...EVERYWHERE! :D

This story seemed to want to be told in second person so I'm glad that it worked for you and that you liked it and were able to learn about the people, though it was short.

This story was written in a moment of literary desperation as I hadn't written anything in awhile!

Review #5, by True Author A Study of Love

9th May 2013:
Hi! Here from the review tag 3.0! =]

I've never read 2nd person PoV before so I decided to read and review this one. And the main thing is, you aren't using the 2nd person PoV because you like to write it, you're using it because it suits the plot. The pov makes it even better. =]

I was a bit confused at the beginning and thought that you're talking about Molly the original, but I went back to your summary and it made things clear. I liked your plot idea. The grammar looks good and the flow is nice too. =]

Good job!

Author's Response: Yay! You gave my little piddly story some love! I'm glad you thought that the 2nd person POV was fitting. It's always a little nerve-wracking to post such a story as it isn't often done but I'm glad you liked it.

Yay for flow too! I deliberately made it more jerky than normal, just because I wanted to so I'm glad it worked. Glad you also became un-confuzzled about which Molly I was talking about :P

I can't say this was your best story but it was definitely worth reading. It was so sweet yet so almost unbearably sad. I have to ask, why didn't you just use Arthur's name? After all that would have made more sense and you could always make it so he gets a new job after their marriage starts to fall apart. Well, either way I liked it.

Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing. This wasn't Molly the original, but Molly the daughter of Percy who we don't know who she ends up with except in fanfics :)

Thanks for reading and reviewing

Review #7, by hannnahgracr A Study of Love

Hey it's hannnahgracr with your requested review.

I really enjoyed this one shot, the 2nd person POV makes it particularly interesting. As does the fact it isn't linear, that is something I really enjoyed actually. I didn't think it was hard to follow hopefully other people feel the same way. I really loved the simply plot line and the whole one shot overall. It was a perfect length and I love the elements that make it unique. You should definitely try another one shot like this.

Sorry I couldn't find any criticisms but I hope you found this review slightly helpful :-)

Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad it was relatively easy to follow and came off okay. It was different for me to write as well as writing while coming off off a very long writer's block so I appreciate the kind words!
