Hi! Tasha here for the Magical Menagerie and also for RvG January - Team Red!
Truth time. I kind of remember this story from back in the HPFF days, because your summary is so striking. However, I just clicked on chapter one and I don't remember any of it, so I've no idea if I ever even got around to reading it. So going into this with fresh eyes.
First thing - I LOVE the name Dollie! I feel a little sorry for her that she thinks she's no one compared to her friends and she sent her prefect badge back because she doesn't feel good enough AND because she was worried she'd make a fool of herself in front of Remus. How awful. And I wanted to give her a hug when "her heart sank" when he talked to her. That's so unusual - and refreshing - for a character to feel like that when the guy they fancy talks to them. There's usually a lot of giggling.
Also, if the Marauders really are full of hot air and ego, Dollie dismissing Sirius's help is brilliant. High five for Dollie! Also, although she doesn't rate herself at all, she's really sassy. I love a great sassy character so I'm looking forward to learning more about her when I stop by the rest of this story!
Great start, I'm already hooked! xx
Eek! I am so anxious right now!
It's always darkest just before the dawn, hehe.
I am thoroughly enjoying this. Dollie’s personality is so perfectly thought out. I am very excited to read more!
So pleased you are enjoying this! Many more chapters are on the way, just awaiting validation.
