Review:DumbledoresArmyOfOne says:
oh. well. I'm not quite sure what i'm going to write, but i KNOW that I have to leave a review.
This was... glorious.
i've read this poem several times, and I think i get it more and more after each read. But you, you seem to get it inside and out.
Caradoc and Rosmerta? Who would have thought that such a strange pairing could be this perfect?
I love what you say about caradoc: about the anonymity that seems to come from fame. And about Rosmerta, who is invisible because everyone sees her.
There is so much insight and beautiful writing in this, it actually took my breath away for a moment. At first, the dialogue surprised me: it seemed a bit out of place, but after re-reading, it actually flows beautifully with the rest of the story.
There's not much else I can say, and nothing I can critique,
so thank you for writing this beautiful story!

Author's Response: Oh my goodness! This review caught me really off gaurd (in a good way of course). It thrills me to goodness that you have read this more than once, and even more that you took the time to read the poem. I knew going into this little story that I wanted to use Rosmerta... my choice of Caradoc was based largely on a fic I read a long time ago called Ripples by Margravine in which she placed Caradoc in Slytherin. A slytherin member of the OotP was just what this story called for. :P I do think I know what you mean, the dialogue is a bit jolting from the rhythm of the piece, but I'm glad you think it works! I still have mixed feelings about it. There are three more chapters of this story left to go that will explore other passages of the poem that I hope to get around to posting someday. :P

Thank you so much for this lovely review!
