Chapter: Fluff

Hi, Jenny,

This is Vicki of Slytherin House. I don’t know how I missed this poem when you posted it; I guess it’s so slender that it just slipped past me.

It’s a cute little poem, with a careful syllable-and-rhyme scheme that I didn’t notice in my first reading of it. :p You must have had fun in writing a poem with so few words, but with meter and rhyme. I did one like that once, but not on a HP theme.

Because of the uncertainty, the tentativeness of the words, I would say that it is the guy speaking, not the girl. The mild swearing (damn; Merlin! used as an expletive) also sounds more like what a guy would say. And traditionally it is the guy who is expected to make the first move. But, as you say, it could be any of a number of pairings; only the words Knuts and Merlin tie this poem to the Potterverse and not to the world at large.

It sounds like a very young pair, perhaps 13 years old. Lots of readers could recall a similar situation in their own lives when they were in their early teens. Frustrating it must have felt at the time, but now we can laugh about it.

Thanks for writing. It was fun to read.

Author's Response: Funny you should say 13--I took the idea for this poem, and a phrase or two, from something I wrote at the age of 12. It certainly is humorous now...if only the speaker of the poem (who, to me, feel closest to Ron or Hermione, but really could well be any one of own younger selves) knew how adorable they were! It's a fun poem, and it was definitely fun to write--took me a while to get the meter pattern all consistent, though! Anyway, thanks for reviewing, and glad you like it.

Chapter: Fluff

*snickers* Nice summary, Jenny. Just popping in to say that I still love this poem, even if it is fluff. And my favorite part is still that first stanza were you interrupt the lines with "if knuts were wishes!" Teehee!
