Review #1, by Felpata Lupin RABID

14th December 2015:
Hi, Renee!
I'm here with your late Hot Seat review! :)

You have so many amazing stories up... It was so hard to choose... Then I saw this was about Remus and, well, you know me... How could I resist?

Did I already tell you that your writing is beautiful? I think I did... A couple of times... This was no exception!
Your style is so poetic, your description so vivid, your word choosing so perfect. I could hear the wind whistle, I could see the darkness of the forest, I could feel Remus' pain and Bellatrix excitement. It was all so great!

I don't really know what to say more, except that this was brilliant. Just like all your work! :)

Happy belated Hot Seat and many hugs!!!
With love,

Author's Response: Hi lovely!

Yes, this is about Remus, although he isn't exactly himself in this piece, is he? But I am glad you read it anyway and I hope you enjoyed it!

Awww... Chiara! That is TOO KIND of you to say!!! Beautiful and brilliant? Oh my... I don't know what I did to deserve such kind words, but you are SO sweet! *hug*

Thank you thank you for this lovely hot seat review!

lots of love,

Review #2, by The Basilisk RABID

12th October 2015:
Helllo there dearie!

You’ve been bite by the reviewing Basilisk, hisss hisss. I love rancid things and scary yellow eyes. This story seems right up my chamber of horror and hellish deeds mwahah

‘sweet, feral scent of the forest’ -I don’t think you need a comma here

Ah yess my master’s most devoted. She’s a wicked one. She would care not for creatures like me; she thinks she’s above us in every way. You captured her essence well in such an effortless way. My Lord would be proud. Equally proud that she’s serving his cause thusly, but I am so torn. How dare she seek to harm another creature like me! We are majestic beautiful things and should be respected as such, hmm.

You do well mixing these two worlds together. Your writing makes my scales ripple. I feel the emotions and the horrifying aspects of a transformation, though unknown to me outside of shedding. Your description is very poignant and sharp here. Alas! What short and spooky prose, I wonder what happened next between the pair? Would I defeat this creature of the night? I do not know...just kidding, of course I would hahaha!

Best Hisses,
The Basilisk

Author's Response: AAAH! A BASILISK!!

Oh, wait... this basilisk is actually rather sweet. Can I keep you as a pet? (You have to promise not to turn me to stone!)

Well, either way, thank you for reading my story, and then reviewing! It must be a challenge to review when you don't have limbs! You've definitely gone the extra mile!

Seriously,thank you Basilisk for your review! I loved it!

Best hisses back!

Review #3, by Dirigible_Plums RABID

22nd September 2015:

It's Plums here for your requested review and may I just say that I am blown away. I wasn't sure what to expect since you generated such an unusual combination (which I suppose is the point of the challenge), but I am pleasantly surprised.

I honestly think you have nothing to worry about. It's a very strong piece of writing and I have a feeling that you'll write this genre well. I particularly enjoyed the paragraph where Remus finally transforms into a werewolf. My only criticism with it is that I'd suggest putting "kill" on a new line for a more dramatic delivery. Consider doing the same with the "attack" at the end too.

I think that's my major criticism for this: the paragraphs. You've styled it so that each paragraph switches from Remus to Bella, but I feel like the change is a little jarring. Breaking them up where appropriate will easily rectify that without having to add loads more.

I really enjoyed reading this and I wish you good look with the challenge. Hope this helps :)

Plums xo

Author's Response: Hi Plums!

It's funny how the brain works. I picked this combo and thought, oh that's pretty straight forward. My concern was the execution of the idea.

I considered putting both "kill" and "Attack" on new lines. I'll have to think about it. Thanks for letting me know that you'd be in favor of that.

Thank you so much for this very kind review!
xoxo Renee

Review #4, by alicia and anne RABID

21st September 2015:
Hey! I am finally here! Sorry about the wait for this :P

Ooooh I am loving the descriptions that you've used, they've powerfully painted the scene and made it so easy for me to imagine that I'm there. I'm very on edge and very intrigued about what's about to come. :D

Seriously though, those descriptions... breathtaking! Can you teach me your ways? I am begging you! I am in love with them. So very in love.

I love that you've alternated between Bellatrix and Remus, and you've done such a brilliant job at writing horror, you definitely have a talent for this, and I would love to read more horror from you. You've done such a superb job!

Author's Response: Tammi, your reviews always make me laugh! :D

Thank you for your kind words about the descriptions! As it turns out, I kind of can "teach you my ways" - for the first four stanzas, I didn't use the verb "to be" at all. I made myself use other verbs. I thought it was a really fun challenge for a piece with a lot of description. :)

Although, I don't think you need me to teach you my ways! Will you teach me your ways?!?

I don't know to feel about the thought that I may "have a talent" for writing horror, since it's not a genre I've considered very much. But it was so, so nice of you to say that in regards to this piece! :hug:

Thanks again!
xoxo Renee

Review #5, by Shadowkat RABID

21st September 2015:
I think it's amazing. The imagery is chilling.

"Above the pines, the moon leaks a rancid light like something decayed, or a corpse’s yellowed eye."

From the first line it gave me chills. Amazing job! *favorites*

Author's Response: Hi!

I am so happy that you favorited this story!!! I have to admit, it was pretty fun to write all that nasty description! (I'm not creepy... I swear! :shifty: )

But, really, I am so happy you enjoyed it and that it gave you chills, since it is meant to be chilling. THANK YOU so very much for your review!
