I get a kind of savage pleasure from seeing Lockhart sweaty and exhausted. He does so much the easy way, I am glad I get to see him at least suffering a bit as he does what work he does do.
“Gilderoy Lockhart hated similes.” Perfect line is perfect. It is comedically particular, but also very effective in transitioning into the meat of the story.
Omg, this is hilarious. Honestly I can’t blame the witch for using a lot of similes - he asked for description and she was being thorough! I find it amusing that Lockhart doesn’t just hate similes in writing, but speech as well. The part where he shakes off a simile he almost used is hilarious.
Yess, Lockhart is a frequent flincher. Suffer from your mistakes! (I actually have a lot more sympathy for Lockhart once he winds up in St Mungos, but for the sake of this review I’m just gonna be cruel)
Ooh, interesting use of obliviate on the rabbit.
Wow. He seriously doesn’t think he’s doing anything wrong? Wow.
Okay, his musing on the significance of memory does make me feel a bit bad for his future self. Not that he doesn’t have it coming.
I wonder which story he gets from this warlock! Poor guy, he doesn’t deserve this.
