|Reviews for 20 Random Facts About Seamus C P Finnigan|
| Alyce chapter 1 . 6/6/2009
The Dean revelation explains Seamus' last scene in Dumbledore's Army so clearly. It does seem to fit with the Seamus you created to have him say the exact wrong thing when it matters the most and then want nothing more deperately than to fix it. It makes it desperately sad that he couldnt which basically encapsulates the aftermath of war perfectly in my opinion.

The last one made me cry...
Really cool. I love Seamus.

I'm not quite done with Sluagh yet, but I'm nearly sure that Seamus is my favourite character of yours. He's so heartbreakingly imperfect and tragically flawed but so, so ironically *real* that it hurts.
The chapter in Sluagh in which Neville used Polyjuice and posed as Dean made me hurt. Poor, poor, poor Seamus.

I'm not sure which of these is sadder. The last one or the fact that Seamus learned to use a gun at 13. I like them both either way.

I skimmed through this again a few minutes ago and I wanted to mention that I have never seen Slytherins as selfish as much as self-preservative and self-centric.
Admittedly I have a strong bias towards them, but somehow I never pegged them as "selfish". Is that your personal/DAYD canon or your own assessment of Rowling's canon?

6. Made me cry, it describes someone I love so perfectly. I'm not sure how you did it, lol.
The last bit was absolutely heartbreaking. Well, all of it was. This is a great one: I knew I'd love it, from the way Seamus was written in DAYD.

This was awesome - I can't pick out my favourite ones! Just, great job. You gave Seamus a really deep personality, and chose things that other people might not, so well done. ]

I thought you were doing these biographies on DA members who were deceased, but Seamus is still alive. I think. Actually I'm not sure. I'm going to have to re-read the last couple of chapters of Sluagh before I comment on them I think.
#20 follows from that Seamus/Nevillie scene in Sluagh, although I think the idea that Seamus apologised to a dead Dean at Hogwarts is new.
A fan letter to Moody! Heh. Nice tie-in to the obsessed Seamus of Sluagh.
Re #5 - all Slytherins are selfish - oh, naughty, how politically incorrect of you! 'Jo' will be most displeased, you obviously haven't been keeping up to date with her post-publication interview corrections! :-)

"although everyone else thought of him as a fragile wisp of a boy, Seamus never seemed to grasp the concept himself. The Healers at St. Mungos and the Doctors at Casualty in Belfast City Hospital all knew him by sight, whether it was for double walking pneumonia or extricating part of a fence from his leg."
HAHAHA that sounds like Seamus.
It was awesome that he was so stubborn he didn't get sick for a long time.
"Not to mention that when he was hyped up on that much sugar, not a soul in Gryffindor Tower could understand a word that raced out of his mouth."
*giggles I'd believe it
"He doesn't just rage easily, he also laughs, loves, dreams, and worst of all hurts easily"
Aw, I love thinking that of Seamus
" He's an excellent dancer."
Aw again, just too cute
"but it was enough to get him by when he got every written answer spot-on perfect."
Nice! Sounds like he studied extra hard for that test. Doesn't surprise me that Transfiguration wasn't his best subject.
"but with the Carrows and Snape in charge, McGonagall wasn't about to fail a D.A. officer from her own house. He was grateful for her little defiance, though, as it saved his pride, if not his homework."
"He can't swim."
Aw, poor Seamus
"Even as an adult more than capable of ordering take-away or casting a spell, he still prefers to get out the knives and talk, whether or not anyone's there to listen. Somehow it feels like his mother always is."
aw! That's so cute!
I keep saying 'aww' I know, but I just love how well you get into Seamus' mind, and just how complex that boy is.
"Moody said he was no one to look up to, that constant vigilance was a necessity, but that you couldn't shelter others from the rain without it soaking you to the bones, and that you could never fight a thing without knowing it, and that knowing it meant becoming it in part. It took nearly ten years for him to understand the letter. By that time, he wished he never had."
What a sobering thought. Ah Moody, always putting a damper on things.
"He only has one real regret.
He wishes he hadn't called Dean a fucking queer."
:( Poor Dean

I'm having a real hard time reconciling this Seamus and Seamus from Slaugh. But lovely as usual, and I always enjoy reading your wonderful works. There hasn't been a one shot that I haven't enjoyed.

'nor does it get him anywhere except Not Down.' and 'Seamus would give his life to spare someone else a moment's pain without hesitation, and when the Hat saw that, it announced him as a Gryffindor with ringing confidence that completely belied all the previous muttering.' My two favourite parts, except the very last two, which were so sad that they deserve to be judged on their own. They were just heartbreaking, and I'm lost for words at how touching they were.
