Review #1, by Pretense Of Perfection Post-War-Problems - Event 3

12th July 2014:
Aww, I love the fact that Dobby is still alive. I think it's adorable how Harry asked him for help in getting an engagement, and could plausibly happen in canon, in an AU where Dobby didn't die, of course. I love how well you wrote Dobby's characterization, it's scarily accurate. I can totally see him showing up with a bunch of hats on his head, wearing flip-flops, and one sock. And then offering to get Harry some for christmas. I literally laughed out loud at the part. And Harry's expression? It was priceless. I love how Harry trusts Dobby with something so important in hsi life, and then goes on to tell Dobby that he is a true friend. It was a perfectly, light and fluffy piece, it really hit me. I so wish Dobby had lived so something like this could've happened, and I can totally see Dobby doing this for Harry. I loved this, it was wonderfull written.

Hi there!

Aw, this was a really cute story! In the books and films, Dobby's death is one of the ones that always gets to me every single time and has me crying like a baby, so it was actually quite nice to see the different version when Dobby clearly hadn't died - I was actually really happy to see him here and the way that you wrote Harry and Dobby together - that's quite a difference for me, because I love canon.

I really loved the way that you wrote the friendship between Dobby and Harry together here in this piece. It was so cute that Dobby was still wearing outrageous things like sandals - details like that helped to make this story really interesting and believable. But I think my favourite thing was the fact that Harry was asking Dobby for a favour when it came to one of the most important things in his life, asking Ginny to marry him, and of course Dobby would help him. It was just really cute and I enjoyed reading it a lot!

Howdy!

Somehow I KNEW when I read the summary that this is the favor Harry was going to ask Dobby, and so I was willing to overlook the fact the story bucks canon in such a huge way because Harry/Ginny and because I love Dobby.

I think writing Dobby is always a big challenge because he's difficult to balance. I've never written him personally, but from canon it's clear that he's so enthusiastic and inquisitive, but also can be very wise. While his dialogue and mannerisms are often humorous to us because of how his kind behave, he still has important things to say and valuable ideas and knowledge and I think it's always important to strike that balance. Here, I think he came off a bit too skewed toward the quirky side (but that's just me).

The thing I think you got down really well was the awkward moments Harry encountered throughout. Try as we might to make excuses for him, Harry can be quite an awkward guy, with his running his hand through his hair and his "err's". You got that stuff down nicely and you made the mission he had in mind one that would rightly make any man nervous, let alone him.

Overall, I think this story was a great idea and you did a pretty good job executing it! Thanks for sharing!

For the House Cup 2014 Review
Yay- Dobby! I could totally see him wearing er, trying to wear multiple pairs of socks with flip flops. I wonder who gave them to him?
Ooh, he's engagement planning! Aw, I wish Dobby had survived in the books.
I'm not sure which would be scarier; going to see Mr. Weasley or Mrs. Weasley. Neither of them will be terrible to Harry of course, but I'm sure it's nerve-wracking.

Hello! Here for review tag =)

I liked the idea of this little piece, with Harry asking Dobby to buy an engagement ring. It was sweet, especially since I love the thought of Dobby being alive after the war and helping Harry out like a good friend. The way you wrote the dialogues was also witty, especially with Dobby being his old self and wearing too many hats and weird shoes xP

I understand this was written for the house cup so it must have been in a hurry, but now I think you can come back to this and polish it a bit =) There are some grammar and punctuation errors that can be fixed (comma and speech tags placement, sentence phrasing). It could also do well with some more description of Harry's inner thoughts and the surroundings around him to add colour to the story.

Otherwise, this was a good piece and I liked it.

Cheers,
AD
