Wow! Great job! It was funny, yet sad, yet romantic....brilliant! You wrote it wonderfully, and it's an imaginative explanation for Dumbledore's crooked nose. Good Job!
Author's Response: Thanks! Wow, it's really heartening to get reviews so soon!
Poor Dumbledore! This was superbly written - the plot line was very clever. One little thing I did have, though, was that Brooke is a very modern, American name and we're talking about before the second world war here. Also, I'm not sure how common "bastard" was used as a vicious insult.
Other than that, fantastic job, good luck with the challenge!
Author's Response: My beta said the same thing about the name...I guess I had gotten so attached to it I couldn't get rid of it...although I'm starting to hate it now. Too late to change it, though. Anyway, thank you so much for your compliments!
