From the FF.net review file... Posted in its entirety, because it is a big greasy blob of loveliness. Name Censored to protect the, ah... well.
"I deeply appologize for this review, but I have to explain.
Several nights ago, I had a nightmare that I was writing a story called "The phantom of the dungeons" with snape as the phantom, dumbledore as christine. Upon waking in a cold sweat at seven and realizing I was going to miss the bus if I didn't hurry up, I told my sister about my dream. And I was absolutely revolted at the idea of a snape/dumbledore. So revolted that I promised her that if I ever saw one, I'd read it, review it, and then curl up and die(not literally of course).
So I read your story. In all honesty your writing is excellent: There
are few gramatical errors, you have good phrasing, and a vocabulary that allows for rich descriptions and just a good piece of work.
However, The plot appauls me. Snape, and Dumbledore? I am sorry, but
that is revolting.
Please, though, keep writing, you have all of the mechanical functions
down (I am especially pleased at the lack of chatspeak), I will read
any other non Snape/Dumbledore work you have written and most likely
you'll get good reviews if you have a good plot (from me, at least).
Please do not be angry at my review, since you really are such a
talented writer. I wouldn't mind if you'd read and review my story (I'm *Censored*, the story is *Censored*--slight HermioneRemus slash but of course it's time travel!), because I do mean it when I say you are exceptionally talented."
I'm going through and answering a bunch of Fourth Year reviews. For those not in the know, it's at Skyehawke now, and there's been a bit of tweaking (mostly at the end) that makes me happier. It will eventually go up here, when I get off my butt and post it. Until then, it can be found with the rest of My Skyehawke Stories.
(And no, I haven't forgotten Soft Place. I will not forget Soft Place, I swear. Give me time!)
