Review #1, by cherry_pop94 i. Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare

19th May 2015:
Wow. Just wow. I'm reading this on mobile and I hate reviewing on mobile, so its just another testament to your skill that I've felt the need to review this.

I was a little hesitant to read something that had no dialogue, but I'm so glad I did read this. Your words are absolutely beautiful. My mouth was open the entire time reading this. I was just so astounded by your skill. The Shakespeare quote also fits just so seemlessly into your writing. I'd never guess that you didn't write it had I not already known.

Your comparison of Moody to various Greek gods is quite interesting. I definitely would have never thought to do it, but here it makes complete sense. You really get the sense that this woman truly loves him with all her heart and soul. I like how she doesn't say that she sees him as handsome, but rather she doesn't care how he looks. It goes perfectly with sonnet as well. I do think sonnet 130 is one of the most truly romantic things Shakespeare wrote and its influence here is perfect.

I have nothing but praise for this story and have already added it to my favourites. I get the feeling that I will be returning to read this again and again.

Thanks for sharing!


Author's Response: I'm not in the habit of writing things with no dialogue, so I'm glad that you enjoyed this piece.

Not sure if you noticed, but I left the gender of his lover up for debate. I personally thought of it as a man, but a woman suits the purpose just as well.

Favorite!? Thank you! Wow!

This review was really lovely, thank you so much!

Review #2, by The Summer Snake i. Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare

16th May 2015:
Greetings from The Summer Snake! I have recently slithered out of hibernation and discovered this amazing place with such amazing stories, so I want to read and review as many as I can before I go back into hibernation!

Wow, this was very well-written. I loved how you wrote this about Alastor Moody from his lover's point of view. It is a very unique take. Your description of him was just perfect. You really have your way with words.

The emotions got across wonderfully and the whole Beauty and the Beast comparison was my favourite bit. Your narrative flowed so smoothly and I honestly couldn't find any flaw in this. Here, have some summer cheer for your amazing writing: *showers confetti and flowers*

I don't know what else to say except that I loved reading this. You did a great job with it. Keep writing such good stuff! I loved i and it gave this snake-y cold blooded heart of mine so many feels. Good work!

Now, I'm off to explore more of this wonderful sun! See ya!

With love,
The Summer Snake

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad that you liked it!

Review #3, by Fuzzy Duck i. Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare

6th April 2015:

Hello! I'm a baby duck, and I was just born yesterday. My mama said I'm the smallest duckie in her brood, so she lets me stay inside and read stories while my siblings swim on the pond.

This was such a good story! I wuv Shakespeare already, even though I haven't read much of him yet. The quote from the sonnet fits perfectly with Alastor Moody and his lover. He doesn't seem like the kind of person to be in wuv, but I think it's sweet. The lover appreciates him for what's on the inside, and that's what should count. Tying in Beauty and the Beast was wonderful, too. That's my favorite fairy tale so far!

I guess I've got to waddle away now, but I enjoyed reading your story!

Author's Response: Awh, you're so sweet! Thank you so much!
