I love how you humanize both girls in this story. A lot of authors are very one-sided, and show only the good side of the character they prefer; this story is a more realistic scope of how people truly are.

Very insightful. Parvati said some nasty things in anger, but at least she realised that and apologised. A case of two girls who are deeply troubled, finding support with each other. Keep writing

I like it ^_^ Good look inside Parvati's head, and very original.

Possibly a few too many American-isms for 1997 England, though. I'm not sure 'totally' or 'lame' were common phrases.

Either way, it works well and it was well-written in general. Really liked it.

Sorry for not getting to this sooner. Never gpt the time. Parvati's voice is certainluy unique. You managed to make her sound so... girlish, I suppose. Nice chapter, even if Parvati wasn't too nice! But then, Ginny is hardly the queen of nicety either, is she?

Keep it on!

Oh my goodness, that was great. When Pavarti said that to Ginny my Lord my jaw literally dropped, like oh no she did NOT. Fantastic job :]

This is awesome! I'd love to know more about Dean/Parvati's life together. Do they have kids? If so, how old are they?

And right when you thought I'd never review...

I'm back! :) Life has been crazy busy, but I've been looking forward to reviewing this for quite awhile. I don't break promises, and remember, I said I'd read any Harry Potter story of yours. I'm not exaggerating when I say I'm a huge fan of your writing, and I can't just use the same template with every review because they're all fantastic in their own unique way. (Don't get me wrong - if you ever wrote something that sucked, I would tell you, but I just don't see that happening, to be honest. XD)

I'm actually glad that this wasn't a chapter of Moments, because it goes better with the Padma Patil story. I really like how you delved into Parvati here - her personality went well with how you've described her in the Padma story, and yet she was so much herself; I feel like I know what "herself" is because of your fantastic writing.

Among many other things, I liked: "Especially seeing that my Dean was actually happy with this silly, little girl, because she wasn’t that little and silly anymore." This is universal. Jealousy is like a disease, and hating with no conviction is a huge part of that. It's really annoying to be put in your place when you realize there's no reason to hate her, and yet you still do. Yes.

I also loved how Parvati felt when Ginny dumped Dean. It shows she really loved him, because even though she'd gotten what she wanted, he wasn't happy - therefore, she wasn't either. It's beautiful and, again, universal.

I could rant on and on, and I have ;) but I'm going to wrap this up here. I'll say "Keep up the amazing work" even though I really don't need to, because you always do.

Wow, this was a pretty cool story! Sorry, I'm so out-of-sorts I can't think of the proper description.

This is absolutely great! I mean, sad and a bit heartbreaking too, of course, but Parvati's attitude just comes through so clearly here and gives it a certain amount of sarcastic levity that is just perfect.

I love the way you've highlighted the relationship between these two girls-nothing I've ever really given that much thought to, personally... But given Parvati's side of things, you can see how this animosity would develop.

You also get at her personality, as well as her and Lavender's dynamic and girly attitude in a really logical way. I like that they knew they were being a bit silly, that she knows she has to be the bubbly optimistic one to survive. That contrast between her 6th and 7th year misery is also quite insightful.

And that conversation at the end is perfect. I'm glad you didn't let them make up or demure to a sense of understanding-to rise in anger and say things you don't mean is just as natural (especially for these two). But that moment of laughter... really hits at the heart of their melancholy in a very honest way.

Lovely, lovely job!

This was interesting. I don't often read fic about Parvati and it was an interesting take on her. Your writing style is great.

However, I didn't find myself feeling for Parvati at all - in fact, I felt rather annoyed with her. Especially during her final conversation with Ginny - when she was saying stuff about Ginny moving fast between, hurting and using guys, desreving crap and hooking up with Harry one second later etc. I guess I'm just a bigger Ginny fan I thought; it all reminded me too much of the arguments a lot of Ginny haters use anout how she's a slut and what not and I was just like oh Parvati, I thought you had more sense than that, you catty petty girl and wll I hate that stuff and find it to be complete BS so I just didn't feel for Parvati.

So all in all, liked the writing but the story left me feeling angry at Parvati which I don't think was the intention.

This was wonderful! Parvati's thoughts that were almost stream of consciousness were so fun to read. You made the tension between her and Ginny seem completely logical, and I loved the conversation between them at the end. But my favorite part was a bit where Parvati was talking about Lavender and Ron, and she said they got him the necklace as a test to see how much he loved Lavender - that's such a sad and gorgeous thought, I really liked that. The whole story was just lovely, though.
