Review #1, by lovethepotters The Scent of His Scarf

19th June 2013:
This is such a lovely one-shot! I'd never really given much thought to how deep Cho and Cedric's relationship could be but I guess you've changed my perspective of that now! It's a shame that it was all cut so tragically short with Cedric's death :(

I think it's quite obvious how much thought you've put behind their relationship. You're right in some respects - I didn't understand why JKR made Cho such a bad person in HP5 either. She seemed like such a lovely girl in HP4, you couldn't blame Harry for liking her. Charming, popular, talented, what else could most people want? And then in HP5 she becomes this sad, depressed moping mess.

I have to say, I don't think that Cho is as really as bad as Harry depicts her in HP5. We know that Harry is generally not in the right frame of mind in this book either since he's constantly angry all the time. I think he might have overexaggerated some of Cho's reactions to things.

Enough of my rambling, congrats again on this lovely one-shot! Keep writing, you're great at it :D

Author's Response: lovethepotters,

First of all, thank you so much for reading and taking the time to review. I love it when I get feedback from readers on my works, so thank you!

I feel happy that I was able to somewhat change your perspective on the couple. I like to write about characters that aren't exactly shoved aside, but just don't get as much attention as the usual characters.

But it was a tragic relationship wasn't it?

And I understand your opinions on terms about Harry's mindset. He did have a rather short fuse throughout the book. His exaggeration of things does makes sense.

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!

Review #2, by MagykNargle The Scent of His Scarf

27th May 2013:
You told me in your reply to my last review that you're a 'simple' writer. That was so inaccurate that I just HAD to bring it up. This writing is AMAZING, and so incredibly deep. I didn't think much about Cho besides that I don't like the actress that plays her. This gave me a new perspective.
I did see a few typos, but nothing major. ^^
You are TOO awesome at writing one-shots, just saying.
Great job,

Author's Response: MagykNargle,

I'm honestly flattered by your comment, and I'm not sure how to quite respond to something so kind. So in the simplest of terms, let me just say thank you for your support--for reading and reviewing my works.

As for Cho, I wasn't very pleased with her casting either. Don't get me wrong, Katie Leung is pretty, but she didn't capture the image of Cho that I've always envisioned.
On the plus side, I'm pleased that I've managed to grant you a new perspective of her character.

Typos! I'll edit them one day eventually. It's rather hard to catch grammar/spelling mistakes without Word Processor. I'm using Note Pad as of right now, and it's a pain frustrating from time to time. I'm no beta, so a lot of things usually find their way under my radar.

Overall, I just want to say thank you! You have no clue how much I appreciate this. Thank you for your support! :D
