Reviews For Prisoners
It is terrible that Hermione lost her parents but it was perfect to see that she could live beyond them. I loved how Severus showed her (as he also showed himself) that what was important about her parents would always be with her.
Author's Response: Hi etherian! I want to thank you for this review especially - for it is more than a review. Let me explain: It's so strange to me hearing you say how good it was to see that Hermione could live beyond her parents. I had to do a lot of imagining for this story at the time, as both my parents were living when I wrote this. Having just lost my mother this September to cancer (she wasn't yet 50), I feel like I wrote a strange letter to my future self. So this review of yours is a beautiful flag waving to me as a reminder of love's perserverance, a message I needed reminding of. For in you saying that it was perfect to see that what was important about Hermione's parents will always be with her, you have told me exactly what I need to hear - that those we love leave a lasting mark on us. Such a strange world this is, isn't it? Again, thanks so much for your kind words. Excuse the soppiness, but I really think you were meant to cross my path by leaving this review - the timing is impeccable. Best of wishes, Whitetail.
Author's Response: Thanks so much etherian! I am so glad you found Prisoners beautiful!
Author's Response: Oh my - wow! While I may have no idea how much you adore prisoners, you have no idea what your words mean to me. I'm actually speechless at the moment! So a simple thank you is all I can think to say and I sure hope you can reach a level of writing that gives you happiness and a sense of accomplishment! Cheers, Whitetail
Oh, and I'm also an Anne of Green Gables fan. :)
Author's Response: Hi bootstring! Thanks so much for the review! I am delighted that you enjoyed Harry's second chance at childhood, as well as Dumbledore's gift to Severus for his service. It is great to hear your thoughts on the outcome of the story, as well as hear that you share my taste in books ;) Thanks for reviewing, Whitetail.
""Twinkle Twinkle ... little star," a child's voice sang ponderously nearby, the words soft and almost too quiet to be heard.
Severus knew that voice. Oh, how he knew that voice."
I can't tell you how much this quote from your story resonates with me. Especially Severus' reaction. I can see this scene play out so easily in my head and it is so heartbreaking.
Thank you so much for sharing you story with us! I'm going to be reading it over and over again in the future.
Author's Response: Hi aurorpotter! I am so glad you enjoyed that particular section of Prisoners. It just make me jump for joy when people can point out what sections they feel make the story. Feedback like that is very helpful! I am so glad the quote resonates with you. I love nothing more than to hear from readers that something from a story resonates with them, because my overall goal as a writer is to forge connection. You are most welcome, and thank you very much for the review. It means an awful lot to get reviews on a story that has been finished. It shows that it is still appreciated! Cheers, Whitetail.
Thank you so much for reviewing! It is always a treat to get a new review for a finished story. I am so glad you liked it. :)
Excuse me a moment while I try to put together a coherent thought... OMG!
I just... How could... I don't even know where to START with this. It just... WOW. That's the least rambling way I can thing to put it, anyhow.
This tale has been such a delightful read. The way you portrayed all the hurts and frustrations faced by the various characters and their individual recoveries felt very real. Your depiction of the characters felt very true - even for those who appeared only briefly. And the smorgasbord of cleverly turned phrases you utilized throughout!!! O!M!G!!
Needless to say, I love this story. It drew me in from the very start and I have been hard pressed to get anything else accomplished for the duration. Had I not spent the entire night and way beyond my proper bed time reading to the end, I could probably give a more insightful (and concise) review, but alas, I was so totally ensnared by your wordsmithery that I failed to even notice how late it has come.
Now, I'm truly rambling, so I shall conclude with this: HOLY CRAP, WHAT A FANTASTIC STORY YOU'VE WRITTEN! THANKS FOR SHARING!!
Author's Response: Like, OMG Dream Painter - thanks for the awesome, long review! I myself am having trouble expressing how pleased I am to hear your words, haha! You are most welcome for the story. It is excellent to hear you liked it so much. I consider it a job well done if it interferes with sleep! Cough cough ... yeah, sorry about that ... but I suspect the sleep depirvation may have been worth it. Just going out on a limb here ... ;) Also, I love rambling reviews! Wordsmithery - squee, so awesome sounding! :) Cheers!
