Nice, fresh, relaxing tale. I enjoyed your description of the Founding Four. I have always thought at them as older, so your idea has the charming seduction of youth. My only note: perhaps you could have given a more exhaustive description of Lord Hogwarts and of his reasons. I visualized him like a Dumbledore of the ancient times, but as everything starts from him, we should know better who he is. Anyway, good job and sorry for my bad English, I wish I could write as well as you do. Best regards from Italy. Mariaemilia
Author's Response: Grazie, Mariaemilia. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Perhaps one day I will expand and give a bit more background on Lord Hogwarts and the Founding Four. It was originally written for a competition, so that's why it's a bit brief. Thanks so much for the wonderful and long review. I appreciate it so much!
Reader's Response: Glad you understood my review! I'm going to read your other stories in the next days, if I survive work. When I find a promising author, I try to read all of her production. So, you may find new reviews here and there.
Er, could I ask you if you are still available as a betareader?
I have seen your name in the beta list in the Forum, that's why I ask. I'm trying to improve my written English and writing stories is a fun , relaxing way to do it. I've already another friend author that helps me sometimes, but she is very busy now, so I was looking for another friendly hand. I don't think I will post anything anyway, I really don't know if my knowledge could allow me, but it would be nice to try. Thank you in any case! Mariaemilia
What a wonderful tale - a nice point of view to see the founders grow up, as real people, instead of just the archetypes of their houses. Thanks!
Author's Response: Thank you, FJDS. That was exactly my point. I wanted to show that they weren't just what they've been stereotyped as being, that they were real people. I appreciate your review so much!
