|Reviews for All It Took Was A Manticore|
| Weaver Blyx chapter 1 . 12/20/2015
‘All It Took was a Manticore’ is a charming character study. The adventure, while engaging, is the necessary means to a psychological resolution between the two main characters Gryffindor and Slytherin. The point of this story is not at all the manticore, but rather the unlikely friendship or potential antagonism between two unlikely individuals.
This is not the first time I have read ‘Manticore’ and I don’t expect it to be the last. Izzyaro’s grasp of Rowling’s wizarding world goes beyond what Rowling herself has imagined to the author’s own unique understanding of both the characters and environment. I don’t say that it’s an unfaithful representation, but that in many ways this story, and its sequels and prequels, add depth to Rowling’s fantasy landscape that is missing from the original series.
This review is a review not merely for the author but for future readers, if future readers bother reading these reviews. This is a highly recommended read.

PLEASE PM me because I cannot for the life of Snape understand what the "founders read" is. It sounds really interesting, but I can't find it anywhere! It's super important! I reeally want to read it. It sin't in your profile, but there's no link, and it doesn't show when I google it.

It is absolutely unbelievable that you have such an astounding ability to channel both characters EQUALLY which is so rare. a lot of writers I know tend to concentrate to much on one character and though I do wish I knew more about gryffindor's past i love how you treat them both equally like a friend trying to give a fair side of both stories in different views. you are amazing.
p.s you dont have to answer my reviews. ). i just feel the need to voice them thats all

I love it. ;)

All these episodes of Godric and Salazar are so fun to read. :D Is the manticore a real magical creature, or is it something you made up? If it is made up, your imagination is amazing.
I thought the plot was interesting. I really liked how in the end, you emphasized their friendship by Salazar not having to say anything to Godric about his fear of fire; they just understood. It was a sweet touch, and believe me when I say that I really liked that.
This was a perfect mix of suspenseful adventure and sweet friendship, and I loved it. :)

Oh, this is funny! Usually, I avoid HP fanfics like the plague (they tend to be really, REALLY stupid...) but this is very good. It's the first I've seen about the founders (again, I haven't been looking, just happened to hit the wrong button and spotted this) - and those two are hilarious together!
Is that original meeting part of a fic, by any chance? Because I bet that would be epic. Anyway, I must now go and see what other stories you've got on the site, because I can never find enough good reading.

I really like this! The interaction between Godric and Salazar is totally believable and it's a great explanation for how they became friends.

This was so awesome. I loved this. I found your Founders Read series and I loved it. So I looked at some of more of your stuff and found this. I look forward to reading more in this series.

A manticore. They became friends over a manticore. Seriously.
That's so like them it's almost funny. Okay, forget the "almost". You had me practically in stitches simply over the idea! :D
I loved the oneshot just as much as I love all your stories about the Founders (which is a lot). I blame you for the fact that I can't read other Founders stories than yours anymore, because I always think 'Salazar wouldn't act like that!', 'Godric doesn't look like that!', 'Hey, there's a lot more to Rowena than books!' or 'Don't underestimate Helga's stubborness!'. You get the picture.
On another note, you had too few choices for the poll in my opinion. I'm interested in reading at least four stories on the list you've got on your profile (though I think only three of them were included in the poll). In case you wanted to know (if not, ignore this part), they were "Writings from the Past", "The Awakening of Salazar Slytherin", "Help Will Always Be Given" (especially that one) and "Heir of Slytherin".
Salazar-Harry oriented much? ;)
Anyway, I look forward to an update on your Reading the Books story, but in the meantime, this will do (definitely!). I love everything you write about the Founders! :D

This was quite good, not to mention it gives a rough age estimate to the characters. But anyways it was a great read, nice to see one of their adventures
