Gina, this is beautiful! Great job!
I would guess Tonks/Remus as who it started as, and Harry/Ginny in the end. Funny how this sometimes change on us, huh?
Author's Response: Hi Cyns! Hope you and baby are well. :) It is strange how sometimes our writing will take on it's own life. I wasn't actually thinking about Remus and Tonks, but I could see why you might think so. Gads, that would be desperately sad! I don't think I've ever considered one of *them* not surviving, you know? And I've killed a lot of characters! ;) I actually started out writing about Ron and Hermione, because I wrote a story where Ron did not survive, and thought this challenge would be a fun chance to write a poem to go with it. But it was obviously Harry and Ginny by the end. Thank you so much for reading it and for leaving such a nice review!! Take care! ~Gina :)
Your poem is very well written and flows so smoothly. There isn't an awkward phrase anywhere! Congrats to you on second place. You are so very talented. :)
Author's Response: Hi Tia! Thanks so much for reading this poem, and for the lovely review. I don't know about the lack of awkward phrases, I'm always aware of at least one in my poems that just won't cooperate, but I am so glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the congrats, and right back at you for placing as well! ~Gina :)
This is an amazingly well written rondeau. *loves* My only nitpick would be that the refrain is the first four syllables of the first line, not the first to.
But otherwise, this was very well done. It was eloquent and very well thought out. It just seemed so...elegant. :p Great job. My favorite part would have to be 'He could not fight the veil's last song.' It just seems so...poetic. Good luck in the challenge!
Author's Response: Hi Kate! Thanks so much for reading this and leaving such a nice review! Thank you for pointing out my goof with the refrain. *facepalm* And another big thank you for "consulting" on it!! I'm leaving it as it is, two syllables short, because I like it better than some of the alternatives we discussed. I will be sure to read the guidelines closer next time! Thanks so much for your lovely review, and good luck to you as well! ~Gina :)
Great poem! Would this be relating to Harry and Ginny's relationship broken, or as you say it, lost to the final war with Voldemort?
Author's Response: Yes, that's it! But I started out with another couple in mind. I have, however, already killed Harry once so the poem morphed into his story instead. Funny how those things happen! Thanks so much for reading this, I really appreciate the review!! ~Gina :)
That was good!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it, and I really appreciate your reading it and leaving a review!! ~Gina :)
is it harry and ginny???
Author's Response: That's what I was thinking by the end! It didn't start out that way, though. ;) Thanks for reading my poem and leaving a note! I appreciate it! ~Gina :)
