Review #1, by ValWitch21 Cursebreaking in Barcelona

16th July 2013:
I'm here to hit two ravens with one stone, reviewing for Ravenclaw and treating myself to some of your lovely writing.

What I love the most about this is how balanced ylur characters are. Johanna happens to be one of my favourites out of all your OCs, and seeing her cameo here made me really happy. HPFF needs female OCs as relatable as she is, in all her spunk and big-mouthing.

This one-shot made me want to jump on a plane to Barcelona and go waving a stick about park Guell, but sadly that isn't possible. I'll just close my eyes and base myself on your story to pretend I am!

(CLAW POWER! And again thank you for being here to oull us through the HC ♥ )

Author's Response: Aww, I'm glad you like Johanna so much! She's one of my favorite OCs to write about - she's so funny and sarcastic. I really do just love her, so I'm always happy to hear that other people like her, too. :)

Thank you so much for all your lovely, amazing reviews!

Hello!

This was a really good one-shot! I absolutely love all your work and this is no different!

I love your Teddy and I love your OC Johanna! She's in a few other stories, if I remember rightly, and each time she's just a wonderful character!

The way you write action is so wonderful! I loved seeing Teddy and Johanna go cursebreaking! The fire and water was an excellent touch, and I was on the edge of my seat, hoping they'd be okay!

So yeah, I absolutely loved this one-shot! It was written amazingly and the characters are just perfect! Thanks for sharing it! :D

10/10

Author's Response: She is in a few other stories! It makes me really happy that you've read (and remember!) enough of my stories to remember her, especially since she's a character I love to work with. Once I finish up some of my WIPs a longer story about her is definitely on the agenda. :)

Thank you so much for your lovely review!

Review #3, by ATLpaintingflowers Cursebreaking in Barcelona

12th July 2013:
Okay first off I would like to say I have no words. This was amazing. Usually when I review something, I review while I'm reading it, but this was honestly so good that I read it all in one go. I loved Jo's character, she was really quite funny and witty. I also wonder who the Weasley, Teddy was with was. I loved Teddy's career choice it was really original and uncommon, because most fanfictions have him as a Auror or professor or something of the sort. Your grammar and sentence structure was flawless, and this story flowed really well.
10/10

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it so much, and I'm really touched that you were interested enough to read it despite it being one of the longer fics submitted for the Cup. :)

Thank you!

Review #4, by CambAngst Cursebreaking in Barcelona

Hi, Beeezie!

This was really well-developed and it's obvious that you put a lot of thought into it. Not at all the type of story one expects to see in a challenge like this where time is of the essence.

Your Teddy immediately reminded me of the way you write him in your other stories. He's brave, but not reckless. He's smart, organized and put together. He's obviously hopelessly smitten with Victoire, to the point where she can take him right out of his routine. He seemed to work rather well with your original character. Each of them was able to lead or follow, as the particularly of the situation dictated.

The situation in the hidden Catalan treasure room was cleverly put together. It didn't feel overly obvious what the solution to the problem was, nor was it easy or without risk for Teddy and Johanna to retrieve the treasure. It was very realistic for the type of danger that witches and wizards seem to confront in the Harry Potter universe once they're adults.

Overall, your story was very well-developed. It didn't feel rushed the way that a lot of challenge entries do. The characters and the plot were fleshed out very well, giving it a lot of depth. You seemed to take your time to fill in the little details that make a story vivid and rich.

I couldn't find a single thing wrong with your writing. Very nice job!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for this review! I'm really glad you liked it, and grateful you took the time to review this much longer piece. :)

I'm glad Teddy reminded you of the Teddys in my other stories, because they should ideally all fit together - I don't like recreating the characters each time, so I mostly keep my fics in the same head canon universe. I'm always happy to hear that it works!

Thank you so, so much. I'm glad you liked this story so much and thought that it worked well and that the pace was solid, and I'm so sorry it's taken me way too long to respond.

Review #5, by charlottetrips Cursebreaking in Barcelona

11th July 2013:
Wow that was like so adventurous! Literally, at some points my heart was pounding. Like when Jo hadn't gotten out of the tunnel yet and even though I was like Beeezie's not going to kill her off so quick, I must confess that I had a smidgen (SMIDGEN) of doubt about it. Just a little bit. I kept having the "sensitive topic, etc." warning in my head.

Love that Jo is so fiery. This really read like a buddy cop story where the two of them were friends, platonic, and nothing other than the adventure and friendship between them. I actually appreciate stories like this.

I was impressed with the depth that you went into in the Curse-breaking business. It's something that I wanted explored more as well so I'd be interested in seeing more of this (if you've got some on your page, I might be taking a gander at it). Teddy seems competent and so does Jo and I like that about these two. :)

In addition to getting my heart racing with adventuresomeness (I know, not a word. I have a tendency to do that in reviews.), you also made me laugh, which I love doing.

"It feels a lot like being an Auror, except you get gold at the end rather than dark wizards."
Such a tongue-in-cheek line. I really really like Johanna. I hope you have her in other stories!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it!

Jo is definitely in other stories - she's in a couple of my Teddy/Victoire stories, and she writes Scorpius a really entertaining letter in 'Curiosity Is Not a Sin.' At some point when I finish up some of my other WIPs, I'm planning to write a short story centered around her. Also probably some one-shots here and there, because she's just so much fun. Ditto something about the Cursebreaking - I don't have anything else about it yet, but I'm thinking during my break I'll probably get a lot of writing done. :P

Thank you so much for your review! I'm glad you liked this so much!
