Review #1, by The HPFT Ghost A Wild Pursuit

15th September 2016:
Hello! This was an interesting little story! Very intriguing! I would never think to write a story from the perspective of a snitch. It is interesting how you told the story from the thoughts of an inanimate object.

I also like how you picked a specific match, I like how you didn't just do a random match but the one where Ginny filled in for Harry. I thought that was an exceptionally ingenious idea! It is a match we didn't see and you gave it new and interesting life. Seriously Bravo! Good work! Thank you for an enjoyable read! Now I must be off to haunt other stories.


Author's Response: Hi,
Thanks for the very kind review! I had an incredible amount of fun writing this story and the two that go with it in the series (Doing the Bludger Bounce and Qualms of a Quaffle), I also wrote on based on the thoughts of the Sorting Hat.

I never considered the response that this story might receive and have been very happy with the reviews that it has received. It was written for the Dobbys and I have high hopes.

Please check out my other stories and let me know what you think.

Great idea I loved it from the snitches point of view

Author's Response: Thanks for the very kind review. I have posted a second story that is written from the point of view of a Bludger and there is a third recounting the trials of a Quaffle that is awaiting posting.

Please read them once they are validated and let me know what you think. I enjoy reading reviews and meeting other members.

Hello EvilOtter :) Hope your well, I was strolling through the recently added section and thought your summary sounded clever and popped in to check it out!

“But I have not won the struggle” lol! Poor little Snitch! Is it a thing? I have never known it was a thing, how funny, and I guess awful since it’s “captured” every game. Wonder if one ever gets away. Oh, and you answer that, boundaries. Right. Lame :P

I like how you use a bunch of older language to portray the snitch’s thoughts, like breathe and kin, because it's likely older and uses language similar to its creator and has been around for a long time. I wonder if he comes up with strategies. I thought it was cute that he was like, oh woe is me, why do I even bother. The ‘Until next time’ ending was funny to as it’s almost like it’s a war/struggle every time haha. Cute and creative one-shot.

Author's Response: Hey Ellie,

It always made me wonder what they think (if they think) during a game. Since they try actively to avoid capture I assume they have some sort of intelligence.

Thanks for the very kind review I enjoy them because it gives me an insight into what my readers like.

I was trying to get it ready for the Dobby noms, but maybe next year.

Thanks again,
Evil Otter
