Hello, Leonore. I'm reviewing your entry for my challenge. I'll only be reviewing the first chapter, but so far I really, really like this story. You show a lot of promise as a writer, (I've read some of your other works as well), and I like that you chose Dennis Creevey to write about. I've not read many... well, any, fics with him as a main character or even a secondary character. I think you did an excellent job characterizing him, and his father as well. I look forward to the other chapters.
Thanks again for the challenge entry. May 31st is the deadline, so you'll find out the results then! :)

Author's Response: Thanks! It was a great challenge. I like writing about minor characters, and Dennis is an interesting one.

Review #2, by navyfail Denial

Hi! I'm here from the Blue v. Bronze battle.

First off, I've never actually read a story about the Creevys... is that sad? I'm glad this is my first one. I love how little things of the past are mentioned like how Dennis and his brother and dad planted flowers in his mother's grave, and how Dennis used to love playing doctor as a kid. The memories are a nice touch. His relationship with his dad is really genuine. They only have each other and they are so strong about it.

I love his dad... after the death of his wife and son, he didn't just give up on life but kept continuing it. I admire that.

The end of this chapter is so sad: "I told him magic could heal him. Now I have to watch him die? " This is going to be so hard for him and if I were him I would have said the same thing. And mentioning the saying good-bye thing was so awww.

Overall, great first chapter! I love the little details like how he works a night shift and the addition of Cho Chang. I'm really glad I had the pleasure of reading this!

Author's Response: Hi!

I actually put the final chapter of this into the queue today, so it's at the top of my mind.

I decide on stories in two ways. Sometimes I start with the character and choose the plot. Sometimes I have the plot and choose a character to fit. This was the second kind - I wanted a hogwarts-era or later muggleborn. And once again, Mrs Rowling has created someone who fits my plot perfectly!

I don't think there are many stories about the Creevys - especially not Dennis. I don't remember seeing any, anyway.

So glad you liked it! Little details are a 'Claw thing, I think (although other people like them too, it's our kind of research and thinking through everything). And you spotted Cho's (kind of obvious) cameo!

Thank you!
