This was really interesting. I've never read anything like it. I liked the idea that it was Slytherin who suggested using Muggle ways to fix the problem, although it doesn't really fit his character. ;) I also loved the last stanza. This was really good. :D

Hi!
I read this during the QSQ nominations and I don't know why I didn't leave a review then - sorry! But I loved it! I think it's a wonderful poem, light and fun. I thought your take on the prompt was really unique, and totally worked. The repetition of "muddy mud puddle" was clever and fun and kept the poem bouncing along nicely. Congrats on your nomination, and good luck with future poems! ~Gina :)

Author's Response: Aww - well, thanks. I was so surprised when this little thing was nominated for the QsQ's alongside the amazingly meaningful, deeply moving poems that were also nominees - it flatters me to this day. And (getting back to a subject that is not completely ME) I'm really glad you enjoyed it - thank you for taking the time to review!

Author's Response: .. Why yes, you certainly may. Just - uh - don't tell anyone. I don't know - maybe there were weird weather patterns over the past thousand years?

That's really cute... you have some very original ideas. I have no idea where you would get the inspiration to write a poem about the origins of the Black Lake, of all things...

Author's Response: HA, lol. I know exactly what you mean, and am now wondering myself. I wanted to enter the challenge though, and try out my poetry-legs... and prove that it didn't have to be all that serious. I tend to do that a lot.

Hello! I believe I reviewed this before, but I just read it again, and loved it again, so I thought I'd tell you again. This is a lovely and wonderful poem (the words good and great are so over used, but they also apply). I liked the repetition. Excellent writing.

Author's Response: Wow - thank you so much for taking the time, again. I'm glad it's worth another review ^^ <3

*claps* this is so good! So witty, and I like how you thought of this from the quote given. Fantastic rhyming aswell!
"Though that puddle, that muddy mud puddle,
Started as something so small,
So insignificant in the scheme of things,
It had a great destiny after all."
Perfection!!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you consider it witty more than... dumb, I guess. When I first got the idea I was battling between the two ^^. Again, many thanks for your happy review!

I was smiling all the way through this lovely poem. My favorite line was when Rowena said “And I think that is illegal.” That made me laugh. In one or two points, I think it would have sounded better with an extra syllable, but that is just me. Good job!

Very nice, light-hearted poem. The flow of the rhymes works very well.

There is one thing though. Apart from them knowing about modern engineering, I doubt that Salazar Slytherin would resort to using Muggle machines; let alone praising them.



Author's Response:

^^ Yeah... yeah, I actually noticed that just a little while ago - after a million proof-reads that didn't ever occur to me. My genius is of a hidden variety.

HOWEVER, from now on, when in relation to this poem, I choose to believe that Slytherin had no blood biases, but believed in blood-type segregation for purely moral and political reasons, not because he was judgemental or of puritan beliefs.

Thank you for your review - I'm glad my... umm... unusual interpretation of Salazar isn't totally fatal for the poem.

wow! I really enjoyed the alliteration and the flow of the words- 'muddy mud puddle' made me smile every time I read it. Great job!

Author's Response: I'm glad the flow turned out - and that the first lines didn't get too repetative - this was a concern. Thanks heaps for reviewing!
P.S. I love your username!

Very good job :-)
This has a good rhythm and structure, it's clearly written...
I like it :D

Author's Response: I was going to make a terrible pun linking your usage of the word 'clear' with my repeated 'muddy mud puddle' line, but, for the sanity of all will not. Thank you for your review, and I am glad you liked it. Ever so!
