Review #1, by Lululuna Electric

18th November 2013:
This was such a lovely piece! :) It was so eloquently written and I loved the circular pattern of the story. It really emulates a universal story of growing out of innocence and into adulthood and finding footing within that world of adulthood. I actually found it really relatable as I've known people who have been extremely sheltered and then sort of go through a cycle like Lily did which was really interesting to read about.

I liked the ties in with canon here, like Albus having green eyes and her cousins being witches and Grandad Arthur and her family being full of heroes, and also the image of the "empty pensieve," it was a great addition. I also found the imagery and language of winter very beautiful, what with Father Christmas and that incredible image of Lily standing on Westminster bridge which I could really see so strongly.

This line: they hoard her gullibility like a precious jewel. was so powerful and really stuck with me through the whole piece. The whole story is a really beautiful work of art and I think bears a crucial message about family, relationships and growing up, and I'm really glad I stumbled across it. :)

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much!

This is really different from your normal writing, but not all that bad either. It's...different, you have a talent though. That's for sure. I liked that but where Lily lied because she wanted something different, but she realized that home wasn't that bad a place after all. It was quite a nice twist.

On another note.

Get on the forums for crying out loud!

Of course Dr. Who is the bees knees I reference to it in almost every one of my chapters!

Author's Response: Hey!

You know, I did register an account on the forums the other day, but for some reason the account isn't working. It hasn't activated properly, and I can't message anyone about it because when I try it just comes up with a board message...

Maybe I'll just make a new account, that may be easier.

Anyway, thanks for this review (:

Review #4, by Maddie Electric

3rd October 2011:
That was amazing! It really was :D The imagery you created and the metaphors were all spectacular. I especially loved the varied use of vocabulary in particular. My favourite section (which was hard to choose 'cause i pretty much adored the entire thing) was probably the paragraph you put in the summary purely because I think it just describes in such a different, exciting way.

I really think the pace and the style in which you wrote this really matched Lily's character- always on the go, wide-eyed and curious. She was just growing up and learning about the world around her and your writing managed to reflect that wondrous tone, yet still keep a bit of that realistic streak through it with sentences like "She was always wrong".

I adored Albus in this! Even though he was only a fleeting character, he was definitely significant. As a brother I thought he was just so sweet. This line: "Albus just said I love you" was lovely :) I suppose it had to be Albus who inevitably saved her from herself and ended up bringing her home, even it was done indirectly, haha.

So yeah, all in all I really loved the whole piece, it was something different and fresh to what I've read before and I think you did an incredible job with it! Like I said before, amazing imagery! That was my most favourite aspect of it all :) Oh, and I couldn't have chosen a better title for this myself! It really was "electric" 8)
