Review #3, by MissesWeasley123 Only the Beginning

28th August 2013:
Hello!

Poppy Pomfrey. I love minor characters. You just wrote this so beautifully.. Gah, I'll actually write something relevant now. Or at least try...

I absolutely adored the way you began this. With Harry and Poppy. Dear me, it sounds so weird to call her Poppy. Anyways, the duo have always had a special connection - Harry ends up in the wing far too often. I never expected this beginning so it totally sucked me into the story. Well done on that!

I love the flashback. I think it'll be fun to get to know her more as the story goes along, though I have a shrewd idea as to why the full moon makes her so restless.

This Garrett man seems so handsome and dreamy... I bet he is. Again, something tells me he won't be that way forever. *sigh* Why must you do these cruel things to your characters!

Ah, well. I can't wait to continue reading and am totally hoping nothing bad happens.. though my all around pessimistic mind tells me different. As for CC, I think you missed a quotation mark in the beginning, so you could fix that when you have them time. Otherwise it was perfect!

Author's Response: Thanks dear! I'm glad you liked the beginning flashback (I liked writing that bit and it seemed perfect for an opening). Minor characters are absolutely my favorites to write (most of my fics are of minor characters or lesser used characters). I'm glad I was able to suck you into this fic. Garrett is definitely one dreamy man (at least he is in my head haha). And what makes you think he won't be that way forever? ;) I'm sure you caught on to the hint in the chapter ;) I missed a quote mark? Thanks for telling me so I can fix that! And thank you for reviewing! I appreciate it!

Review #4, by marauderfan Here to Work

Hello! found this in the recently added and I have to say it was that lovely banner that drew me in, as I'm a huge fan of Downton Abbey, lol. Anyway, onto the actual review. This is such a great idea for a story. I love minor characters and it's wonderful to see a back story for Madam Pomfrey - who, although she has minimal mention in the books, is pretty important (because seriously, how many times did Harry get a Quidditch injury?!) I'm really intrigued by the werewolf plot and I love how you've tied it in with the second world war - I'm assuming Grindelwald will come into the story as well, since he was around the same time. So, minor character and a neat historical setting makes for a really great story! I'm enjoying this so much! Can't wait for the next chapter.

Author's Response: aw thank you! I am thrilled you liked the banner - i am an avid fan of Downton Abbey too, and Sybill actually inspired me to write about Madame Pomfrey. I love minor characters, they are my absolute favorite to write about. Werewolves bring an interesting quality to the story and I'm hoping to include Grindelwald at some point in this fic, I just need to find an appropriate way to tie him in. I am thrilled you are enjoying the story! Thank you so much for reading! I really appreciate your review :)

Review #6, by Violet Gryfindor Only the Beginning

14th July 2013:
This is a lovely story so far, Sarah! It's fantastic to see someone writing about Poppy's history and of course a period piece like this is always a treat to find. It was the banner that caught my eye when I was scrolling through the recently added list - it's absolutely gorgeous! - but then I saw your name and knew I had to take a look. :D

It doesn't sound as though you've never written in third-person before. The narrative flows nicely and has a strong narrative voice to it, offering snippets of Poppy's thoughts while also allowing readers to see her from a distance. For instance, when you make reference to the werewolf, but then add that Poppy was too occupied with her own thoughts to really pay attention - that was an excellent little moment to include. It's just enough foreshadowing to pique the reader's curiosity, and it also reveals a bit about Poppy's personality, especially her youthful excitement. You also reveal her naivety in this way and it's really effective. One of the challenges of 3rd versus 1st person is that one can fall into doing too much "telling" as opposed to "showing", and you overcome that hurdle in a way that looks effortless.

I'm excited to hear more about Poppy's history and also to see more of magical England in the 1940s. There are a lot going on with the war and the bombings - Poppy will certainly have her hands full at the hospital, with a lot more than paper cuts and stomach aches too! It's wonderful to read something of yours, Sarah, and I hope that you continue writing this story - I'll have my eye out for an update! ^_^

Author's Response: Thank you Susan! I about died of a heart attack seeing a review from you! ^_^ I'm so honored because you are such a wonderful writer. Ah yes, the banner is one I made actually. I don't often make graphics anymore so it was fun to do one. You have got me blushing hysterically, Susan!

Well I'm glad it doesn't sound like I've never written in 3rd person before because I was worried it would sound awful. I haven't written a good story in 3rd person in a very long time so this was a challenge.

I'm thrilled you like the story so far. This is probably one of my better recent ones that I've written. I hope Poppy doesn't become too cliche or annoying later on. and thank you for the tip, I'll keep that in mind when I'm writing.

I love writing about lesser known characters that we don't often hear about. I guess that gives me more creative freedom when I write. The 1940s are my favorite era, and I am very fond of Downton Abbey so that was also a little inspiration. I will definitely keep writing! Thank you for your lovely review, Susan! It's definitely given me the push to crank out another chapter. :)

great start for this fic Bee! if you have never written in 3rd person, I have to say that I'm very impressed because you are an expert! I don't usually read fics like this but I can't wait to read more!^_^

10/10

Author's Response: aw thanks hon! I am glad you like it so far! I was worried it'd be cliche... and writing in 3rd person is hard but I think it suits the story. let me know if you catch any "I's" in it later on lol thanks for reading!
