Review #1, by anythingcouldhappen All It Took Was A Manticore

6th March 2014:
Hi! Reviewing this for Blackout Bingo :)

I love reading stories where Godric and Salazar are friends :) They really complement each other very well. While Godric's got the bravery to spur Salazar on to do tasks--like fighting a manticore--Salazar's got the cunning and street smarts to keep Godric from rushing in blind and getting himself killed.

Your take on the relationship was especially interesting. To have Salazar as the apprentice to a dark wizard could give some basis for his later actions of building the chamber. I think that's what I liked best about this. You give basis for both the friendship that Salazar and Godric must have had to build a school together, while still giving some background and motivation for Salazar to be a darker character later in life.

Everything was well-written and well paced, and your grammar and everything was great. No grating mistakes or anything. There was one misspelling: "terrorise". You could fix that in your next edit :)

Great job! I'm glad I got the chance to read and review this!

Review #2, by Cannons All It Took Was A Manticore

Hi, I'm reviewing this for Blackout Bingo!

Can I firstly say how impressive your writing is. I clicked on not expecting much but you blew me away. The descriptions were really detailed and you really thought about what era they are in with lines like this - 'Which was how the two of them came to be crouching in the bushes next to a hill about three leagues from the village.' - and them using the sun etc.

I really like how you made them meet, with Salazar being the apprentice of a Dark wizard. You've shown Godric showing compassion to him by sparing him, and how he was determined to kill the mamticore as it was killing innocent people.

I really enjoyed this and you are very talented!
