Remus' thoughts on Nymphadora Tonks. A series of 100-word drabbles, which, when taken together, tell a complete story. Warning: Mentions of character death.
These were very well done; the imagry is intense and the flow exceptional. I like how the emotional and visual imagry were interwoven. For the rest of my review, take a gander at the front page of the archive :)
Thanks so much for the kind words! I have to admit that I'm a bit floored by the response to this piece (I'm quite thrilled by the response, mind, but floored, none-the-less).
Written for the One-Hour Challenge, this short story follows Samwise Gamgee as he says farewell to Frodo at the Grey Havens.
Very well done. The style and the characterizations were a perfect fit with Tolkien, and the background and emotional coloring were quite effective. The splicing with Tolkien's text was very well done.
Squee! You used the 's' word - 'style'! Thank you so much for that particular compliment, as I worked very hard on that. I must say, having read some of the new LOTR fics coming into the archive, that mine seems a bit stodgy by comparison. I think as I read more, though, I'll get a better idea of how to blend my own style with Tolkien's. Thank you so much for reading this story and for leaving such a great review! ~Gina :)
A sixth-year fic begun pre-HBP, this fic begins where Order of the Phoenix left off. As Harry lies in his bed in Privet Drive, guilt-ridden and devastated, Voldemort finds an "easy in" to the young wizard's mind. How will Harry withstand the attacks, and as his role in the war becomes clearer and more vital, will he rely on the strength of his friends as he seeks a way to vanquish the Dark Lord forever?
I'm glad :)
Thanks, cts! I'm having fun with it!
Yeah, Ginny's kind of being forced to deal with her feelings in a rather quicker manner than usual, now that Harry's being put through the wringer right in front of her.
:) That's the point!
I despise fics that cast Ron as the idiot. He's not, and it's not within character to cast him that way.
I was definitely trying to build characters here, but I'm not sure if I knew, at the time I was writing this, exactly what the backstory was going to be. I know now, of course, but I didn't then. It's an interesting thing, authorship.
