Chapter: Chapter 1

Loved it! This is the first review I've ever written. I just discovered HP last summer ... read the series in a month. Been addicted to anything HP ever since. I've been reading fanfiction, sort of keeping the characters alive. And I finally decided to start writing my own. I've one chapter written and a few in progress. I haven't been able to submit yet because I find myself writing my story from the end to the beginning. Never a fan of Draco, he somehow became my favorite character to write. I came up with a penname the other day when I started getting more serious about fanfiction. And then I noticed another "Thestral" out there. I figured I'd check out your work to see what the other Thestral was writing about. Low and behold: Draco. Rowling gives us glimpses of his "tortured soul" and I find myself craving more. Your poem expresses in a few short words what I've been trying to get across as I write my prose. Thank you for the wonderful picture you created with your poetry. Keep an eye out for my fanfic! I'd love to know what my fellow Thestral (and Draco fan) thinks.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad that you discovered HP because a life without Harry Potter seems rather empty. And I will certainly look out for your work! I can't wait until you start posting! Don't you love awesome coincidences like this? ~ the other Thestral

That was really, really deep! I love anything about souls, and I liked the repetition. When JKR wrote that killing rips the soul apart, I thought it was really true. Because, really, at the end of the day, if you die, what's left is your soul, and if that's torn apart.. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now. Just want to say, though, that your poem really touched my heart :D

Author's Response: I love the rambling because I completely agree with you! Your soul is your tie to the world and if it remains untainted, then I guess that means you're a positive force. I'm really glad that my poem meant something to you! Getting reviews like yours keeps me writting. Thank you so much, ~Thestral

I liked it. I found it a little repetitive though having "the eyes of a tortured soul" at the end of almost every stanza. I liked how your rhyme scheme change from stanza to stanza - it gave the poem an uncertain feel which fitted. I also loved the line "He sits, then he stands" - really summed up the restlessness/confusion etc. So great poem!

Author's Response: Thank you! I used the repetitiveness as a way to tie it all together, but I'm glad to hear your opinion. Thanks again and I'm glad you like it! ~Thestral
