Review #1, by Lululuna Part 1

20th February 2014:
Hello! :)

Oh, poor Lavender! I did feel that she got the short end of the stick with Ron, even though Harry never portrayed her too sympathetically in the books. You did a great job of bringing her to life here and having me like her. :) Immediately I was cringing a little at how she wore a dress the same colour as the bridesmaids, that is just awful!

And then of course, Romilda has to charge in and make poor Lavender feel even worse! Haha, I like how Lavender can hold her own, however. I like seeing her brave, Gryffindor side come out along with her sass.

You wrote Ron really perfectly here, I was giggling throughout his cameo. Of course he would eat the cake destined for Hermione, and be completely oblivious about Lavender being flirtatious! He was the perfect mix of oblivious Ron and smitten-with-Hermione Ron. And of course, Lavender has to embarrass herself!

Ah, right when the dark haired man was mentioned I was trying to guess who he might be, but of course it's Krum! I should have known from the giggling girls. :P It actually fits so well that Krum and Lavender would bond over their rejection and have something in common. It's also very like Ginny to want everyone to feel comfortable.

You made me really like Krum here! How he's a little rough around the edges, and the backstory about coming from a poor family and his love for his mother. His comment about her name being like a flower made me smile. That was really great and he really felt in character. But then he had to make his comment about makeup... sigh. Oh, boys are so silly sometimes, and this was one of those moments where his bluntness is a bad thing.

Poor Lavender, but I really like the inclusion of her scar and how conscious she is of being marked by Greyback. :( It's so sad and unfair.

I really enjoyed this, and can't wait to see where the story is going! :) Off to read your partner's story now, you did a wonderful job!

Author's Response: Hi Lululuna! (had to doublecheck to see if I had the correct number of lu's in your penname - I like it!)

I'm so glad you liked how I portrayed Lavender! I wanted her to be strong on her own and a little more mature since the war, especially after the attack from Fenrir Greyback. Poor her.

But that didn't stop me and Penny from making her feel so uncomfortable through the party, hehe.

Of course it's Krum :D wheee. That handsome man, or at least he was in the movies.
And you've observed so well! Penny and I thought it'd be a great way to bond, that they've both been rejected but they're still attending the wedding to kind of proof that they're fine with it - even though they aren't.

I'm so happy you enjoyed reading this and since you did, you'll like Penny's Part 2 even more!

Thank you so much for reviewing!

Review #2, by Singularity Part 1

19th February 2014:
I love the idea behind this story! Very creative :)

The bit with Romilda was hilarious (though how she landed an invitation is beyond me).

I liked some of the little details that you put in, like the unfortunate coincidence that Lavender's dress was so similar to the bridesmaid dresses. What a nightmare!

I also liked the interaction with Ron, and how completely oblivious he was to her flirting. Also his completed nonchalance when he told her about the food on her face. She kind of deserved that, though...flirting with the groom like that.

My favorite part was Ginny's line “Anyway, I have to go. I’ve been told that there’s a girl in here that claims to be a cousin of ours and a bridesmaid – I need to find her and throw her out."


I thought the little scene in the bathroom with Lavender trying to cover up one of her scars was a good tie back to canon, and also fit in well with the beginning (kind of a reminder to people of what had happened at the battle and such).

I've read your partner's story, too, and thought you guys did a really good job of tying them together. They really seemed like two halves of the same story, so awesome job there.

Author's Response: Hi Singularity! :D

Thank you! It was Penny's idea with Lavender and Krum, she was so creative! I wouldn't have come up with that pair at all :D

I am so glad you liked the little details! I thought it'd be funny with the dresses, I mean, poor Lavender for being at her ex-boyfriends wedding and then find out she's chosen almost the same dress as the bridesmaids' :D Total nightmare!

Ugh, you make me so relieved that you could see her flirting! That was exactly what I was going for but I wanted it to be in a less obvious way. Yes, shame on her for doing that to a groom!

Thank you so much! I think Penny will be so pleased to hear that as well. We worked so hard for this hehe.

So happy you liked our story and thank you so much for reviewing!
