Reviews for Eton Boy
Forever Siriusly Sirius chapter 1 . 7/16/2013
I'm doing justinernie for Quidditch League and saw this was one lf the very fics for them and I thought I'd read it.
I really liked the recurring theme that Justin was going to go to Eton, I love that he had this whole internal struggle about his upbringing versus how good it feels. I love the themes of wrong, sick, disturbed ect and how he doesn't understand how it's so right.
I loved this!

Ooh, I really liked the writing style of this. :)

This from someone who doesn't get lustful attraction? Pssh. I think you get it well enough, darling.

Because this is lovely. And Ernie all upset about being a proper Eton boy. O my. I love that reference I totally forgot that he was down for Eton. Lovely observation and I love second person also. So you know.
And I love me some Puffs!
:D

I. Am. Back. And I don't even know where to start with you, seeing as you've written about a half million stories since I was last on, which means that I should begin at the beginning and travel on until I reach the end - then stop. Brownie points if you get the quote without Google. I should just stop to say HAPPY CHRISTMAS! and HAPPY BOXING DAY! (And I got a laptop, so all the AP classes in the world shouldn't stop me from reading and writing any more than they already have.) Onto the review, shall we?:

(Attitudes expressed here that I don't believe in). - I gotta say, this made me smile for a moment. The true work of a writer starts when they write attitudes that they don't truly believe in. And you've been doing that for quite some time now, hm?

The whole idea of this piece was flawlessly executed. The idea of /wrong/ and /bad/ and /dirty/ the relationship was. It all flowed with just how he (which he?) was in conflict with himself and with his previous conviction. Yet he goes on with his own gut, and what he thinks is /good/ and even though it's not the way he was raised, it just means that he's becoming his own person, as well as becoming an Eton boy, and I mean, college is a time when all that comes to light, isn't it? His referral to being a /good/ boy versus being a /right/ boy all works to define how confused he is about his feelings and/or his sexuality. It truly is something that many people struggle with, and the idea slips in there that he is torn between being who he wants and who he thinks he should be. I also enjoyed how the Catholicism was slipped in. It tickles my fancy when religion is applied to wizards.

Immense kudos for a job well done with a pairing hardly heard of and a word count that's really low. I'd say that this was a good story to jump back into the game with.

Dear Merlin, woman, you know me so well. This is perfection! I adore Justin's thoughts about Eton and good boys and religion (though let's not get into religion here because I can feel a rant brewing in my innards) and it's just so right, isn't it? I love the fact that he blames Hogwarts, this whole new world that he has been shoved into, because it seems like such a /human/ reaction. God, I love this pairing. (All blame lies with Samuela.) And just ARGH BOY LOVE ANGST EEEEP! Thank you so much for this darling. {3 (weird heart; stupid FFN eating less than signs!)

This gave me shivers. So expressive for something so simple. Bravo!

This was good, sad, but still really good. :)

Brilliant. I actually just drew these two the other day (along with Hannah Abbott)
Someone who commented on it thought Justin was staring at Hannah, but i think we both know what was really going on ;)
MissingMommy chapter 1 . 12/23/2012
I'll be honest. I had to look up Eton. I couldn't even use context clues to figure it out. (Thank Merlin for dictionary dot com, just saying.)

I liked this. Though, I'm still confused on who was the "narrator". I'm thinking it's Justin, since Ernie is a Pureblood, therefore I wouldn't think Pureblood's are catholics, but I could be wrong. Most of the time, I am in these situations.

But despite my lack of knowledge of "Eton", I still really liked this. I think you captured the whole confusion on homosexual relations in catholics. They know it's wrong, but it feels right, and they don't know why it's wrong in the first place. You showed that really well here.

And the fact that narrator knows it's wrong but wants it too much to stop is quite lovely.

My favorite line was: "you can't understand where something that makes you feel more right than you have in forever could be so wrong." - I just loved it, so much.

Overall, this was lovely. :D
