|Reviews for Five Things Ariana Dumbledore Never Got To Say|

This is a beautiful, delicately crafted fic. I really like your characterization of Ariana - she reminds me a bit of River Tam, from 'Firefly,' vulnerability and childlike innocence mingled with anger, ready to lash out. I also appreciate the characterizations, too, that you've given to her brothers, which fit in so well with what we know of them in canon. And the sweet moment with Gellert... aw...
You made a very strong choice, in framing the story around Ariana's hindrances, the things she couldn't say, share, or understand. I think it does well towards illuminating the hindrances in her life, which caused her and those around her so much grief.

Sweet story. It's interesting how you began it with 'hate' and end it with 'love'

I liked the rhythm of the story. It had good balance of details and action and was fast paced enough to be entertaining. I didn't have a strong urge to skip paragraphs which is a very good sign. I enjoyed the perspective, even if seeing things through Ariana's eyes makes it hard to discern the motives of Al, Able and Gellert.

Interesting. I never really remembered Ariana and forgot what happened to her (thank you Lexicon for having every little thing about Harry Potter), but I must say it was a really good story.
Um, just pointing out your numbers, I think you meant (iv) for the fourth one and (v) for the fifth. You put (i) for the fourth and (iv) for the fifth. Am I making sense? Just pointing that out.
Overall, interesting story (gawd, I said interesting three times)...

Awe, this is absolutely precious!
I truly enjoyed it.
I would have liked to see her personality battle between sanity and insanity, but what you did was very good and I felt all warm inside. Kudos!
Have fun and Get crazy!

Aww! I LOVED it! The beginning was so sad, but SO great! the first one was really beautiful, and I'm glad that by the end she says she loves Al. And 2 was SO sad! 4 was really sweet, as was 5. Aww...three was so family-ish! Great job!

'I love you, Al. I love you, Abe.'
Aww, this is so awesome! I'm jsut a little disappointed that she speaks so... oddly? I thought it was only her magic that was disabled?

after reading that thing on your profile saying how you try to review every fic you read, i felt strangely guilty... so here goes. i hope you don't mind negative critisism terribly- i just critisized another one of your fics, so i hope i'm not crushing you, or anything. I think Ariana came off as a little too airy and dumb, here. that's just my opinion, though. but i thought the part where she goes to see her mother's grave was very nice- it was simple and sad yet very beautiful. i thought that it was very well written.

I really liked this story. It's so sweet and, I actually think that those characters could have behaved this way.
