Review #1, by ScorpiusRose17 Mint and Wormwood

13th January 2016:
Hi Kaitlin!!

I am here with another review for you!!

Wow this was creepy!

I really thought that this was a great One-shot and I liked getting to see how Fenrir became well... Fenrir. He isn't the type of person that can settle for being mocked or laughed at by others and you showed that progression well. I will say, I was totally rooting for him to find the cure, but alas it just wasn't meant to be.

Again, you did a fabulous job with the characters and the descriptions. Especially when he was in the hospital and the room he was in... reminded me a lot of what a room in an asylum would look like. Poor Dillys. :(

Keep up the superb writing!!


Author's Response: Hey Jenn,

Is it weird that I'm glad it was creepy?

I really enjoy exploring the idea of how evil villains became evil. I think there was definitely a prideful, chip on the shoulder, angry guy who is bitter with the world. I think the potion malfunction just sort of pushes him over the edge.

I always enjoy the description and it always makes me happy when someone points it out!

Thank you so much for the lovely review!

Hey!!! Sorry about the wait for this review, but I finally have time to do this! Yay! :D

Ooooh is Ferris concocting the wolfsbane potion, or one like it?

Ferris' gut is right, I wouldn't trust Rita either, I hope that she doesn't do anything bad. Eurgh, she's laughing at poor Ferris, what a meanie!

Oh no! That potion has had a bad effect - and I am loving it! It's adding so much to the story, and I'm wondering just how much control he's going to have. Uh-oh! That's not a lot :S And he's got her trapped in a padded sound proof room! He's going to destroy her! This is terrifying!

AHHH! I love this so much! and you used the prompt so well! I love that you chose Fenrir! I feel like this needs to be my new headcanon hahaha This was brilliant! Just wow!!!

Author's Response: Hey Tammi!

No worries on the wait. I understand that real life happens.

In my head, Ferris is trying to make an actual cure for lycanthropy more than just a treatment.

Rita is the worst and yet I love including her in my stories.

I had so much fun playing with the mad scientist prompt that you gave me and I really wanted to stay far away from Snape or more well known potioneers.

Oh! A new headcannon. That's a huge compliment.

Thank you so much for this review and for such a fun challenge!

Review #4, by Gabriella Hunter Mint and Wormwood

This is Gabbie from the forums here with your review and it's so nice to be back reading your work. It's been too long and now I'm going to fangirl and make a big mess out of this review. :D

Oooh, I heard a lot about this challenge and I had wanted to participate but real life got in the way and I never got around to it. I love challenges like this because you get to really branch out with characters that you most likely would never think of in this way. I know that a lot of people probably already have it in their minds that Greyback was a terrible person from the beginning.

I like here that you show him just being an enthusiastic guy trying to get his name out there. He comes off as a bit egotistical and maybe a bit like a mad scientist but I loved it. I've never seen him written this way and I'm actually feeling sorry for him because he never asked for this to happen.

There are so many neat things here that you used, I'm not good with potions or anything like that when I'm writing (I skip over the details because forget that noise) so I liked all the information you put into this. I could picture everything so clearly and my mind was racing as I tried to figure out what would happen. For some reason, I thought Ferris was going to be the one to CURE lycanthropy and ironically get bitten and horde the cure away after becoming a werewolf but I like this so much better!

It totally has this Bruce Banner vibe to it that's impossible not to like. What's horrifying about this is that Ferris accepted his evil like that creepy bear thing from Brave and totally ate his friend! Now, on some level I can understand what he was talking about. Feeling like an experiment and so on but man, what an ending! Gave me chills reading how calm he was about the whole thing, which just proves how great this was!

Great job!

Much love,

Hello there, I'm here from the review swap. I chose this one because it looked like it could use some love.

I would have never guessed what the purpose of the potion was if it hadn't been alluded to when Ferris went to bed. A potion to cure someone of their "werewolfism" is a very interesting concept.

I love how you incorporated Rita into this. It's always pleasant to see her crop up in stories.

Oh no, the potion worsened his condition! Poor Ferris.

WAIT WHAT? Ferris is now Fenrir... Oh wow, so I clicked this without reading the summary and I completely had no idea that that was coming. What a nice surprise!

This was a very cool take on how Fenrir became Fenrir. The writing served the story, allowing a nice flow, and there was this 1950s-mad-scientist-horror-movie tone that, reading your author's note, might have been what you were going for, so good job! :)

A particuraly chilling line: It had been hard trying to concentrate on what his colleague had been saying due to an overwhelming desire to rip the flesh from her bones. But the whole ending was chilling.

Some CC: Rita says "My reader’s need to know..." and I think you may have wanted "readers" instead of "reader's".

Dillys says, "I’d say that you’re ability to comprehend..." and I think you may have wanted "your ability".

Also, even though I completely missed it for some reason, I would like to point this line out:

“Begging your pardon, Dillys, but you never were known for your potions skills,” Fenrir said with a haughty laugh. I think you might want to change "Fenrir" to "Ferris", for continuity purposes.

This was a really nice read.
