The poem was beautiful. Being a fan of fire imagery myself, I thought it was entirely captivating. YOu made slytherin rather a bastard (am I allowed to say that?) didn't you? The characterization of the female deprived Fawkes was spectacular! Especially his references to the unnamed female as "he" initially. Lovely!

Curious story. I half expected something typical of a sleeping beauty nature but no and the unexpected is a great thing in stories. I'm not so convinced however that the "evil magician" would stick around and whats his motive? Besides that I enjoyed it which is odd because I don't read a lot of hp fanfics .Thanks for an enjoyable read and reading my little rant.

Wow, this was a really unique, interesting story. I loved your descriptions of his thoughts of Woman, and also of the first female he ever saw. The bits in bold form a beautiful poem; I don't really understand it, but I adore it :].

i'm not positive i followed, but it was still a fantastic story. truly fantastic.

Waw, I'm impressed. One of my courses includes analysis of short stories, and this was an interesting one. For some reason, it somehow reminded me of Narcisis (Narcisse in French... I'm not sure of his English name), and of the, erm, 'papyrus' Egyptian legend. The theme is rather similar... Destroyed by love, and re-born in a different shape...
I love the symbolism of the fire, too ; it gives a whole new dimension to the story, that I'd eagerly try to analyse if I were not supposed to be writing a paper for University right now *dejected look*. But even when reading it, well, as an inactive reader, this fic seems wonderful. It is really more a tale than anything else. Deserves many, many congratulations )

a story about Fawkes...nice
| Wormtail 6/19/01 . chapter 1
Quite funny the way you portrayed Godric, I love it when people turn the supposed heros into normal people. I like how you made it into Fawkes's birth and that it makes him and the Mirror of Erised connected. Perenelle fits in here too... I know how it feels to have something come out completely wrong but you shouldn't bash your work so much, it either makes people want to hate it or give you loads of "praise" (akak: meaningless drivel)that says the same thing over and over. So show some spirit for your work!

| Silver Storm Dragon 4/7/01 . chapter 1
That was wonderful. I love the pov. Wow.
| Jess 4/7/01 . chapter 1
Cool. I like how you've just used Harry Potter etc as a background for the story to take place in.

Ohhh Very nice fairy tale!
I have always wondered if a pheonix suffers with each death, or if it is more of a joyous explosion and release- or maybe a little of both. This story gives more to think on...

By Merlin-that was *great*! Yes, living and burning is much more of a blessing than living yet not living. Beautiful!
| Laurel M. Valerian 9/22/00 . chapter 1
I think it was pretty, explaining Fawkes's history. Well written, but could use a bit more plot. All in all, a nice story with angst.
| koko 9/14/00 . chapter 1
all you saying that fawfes was really a cursed prince? and because he died for love he became a pheonix?
| Shing 8/11/00 . chapter 1
