Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
Oh wow, this is beautiful! The fact that you were able to work so much style into a story with these prompts written in a short period of time is fabulous, if not downright astounding. Making Cho into a metaphorical dragon is a creative twist on the prompt that I didn't expect, though I feel that I should have. Using it in the way you have gives Cho's character a lot more depth than most authors, even JKR herself, ever did - you're able to explore her emotions about the events of GoF in addition to filling in the details about her quirks of personality and appearance. The descriptions are amazing throughout this, and I love how you were able to slip in the other prompts surreptitiously within these descriptions - it demonstrates great skill and ease that positively makes me green with envy.

Amazing work with this story! It reminds me that I really need to get reading more of your work because if it's like this, or even better, then I'm going to be addicted to your stories in no time! :D

Author's Response: I think I should start this review by saying thank you! I really admire your writing and so am thrilled to goodness that you enjoyed this one shot. :)

I really have no idea where the idea for this story came from -- I initially intended to write a Cho/Charlie fic... and then somehow I end up with a stylistic cho-as-a-dragon story. I love reading in reviews whether readers took her transformation metaphorically or literally!! Truthfully which way I see it depends on the day and my mood. I really tried to bring some fullness to Cho's character in this story since we know so little of her in canon.

Thank you so, so much for this review!! If you ever do read some other pieces of my writing, I look forward to seeing what you think.
