Wow... This was truly beautiful... It is wonderful how you amended this tribute to the HP world. The balance between the fictional and what really happened was very well written.
I also like how you started with Harry and Ginny having fun in the Muggle world after the war, how everything appears perfect and than the sudden twist --- the reception of the bad news. Harry's feelings are also very in-character, especially him feeling guilty for surviving so many times when so many others have died.

I like the closing saying that Belby/Rob had in the end done "what was right, rather than what was easy". It is very fitting and very moving. This is an extremely powerful piece of work, well done!

It is such a wonderful gesture on your part to write such a thing. I seriously admire you for it.

Author's Response: Thanks Rosie, what a touching review!

I felt very strongly about this incident and I decided I wanted to write some sort of tribute but I didn't have a clue as to what, to begin with. I guess I wanted to mix the fiction with what really happen but in a way that didn't mean I wasn't trivialising the real story at all.

In the end, I went for Harry because I tend to identify a bit with him and I find it relatively easy to put myself in his shoes. I also thought that, since the series is based on him, he should have "his say" on this.

I'm really glad that you thought that the mixture or reality and fiction was good. I was nervous about this because, as I said, I did not want to trivialise the situation, but in fact to raise awareness.

I'm glad you thought Harry was in character. I can actually see him and Ginny delving into the Muggle world for a quiet evening. He's just too famous in the magical one. Also, he was raised as a Muggle and I guess, he would come to realise that he shouldn't sit on the fence about Muggle issues either, yeah, that's how I thought Harry would think. I'm glad that the survivor's guilt came through as well. I also thought that he feels a bit guilty too about having all that money and basically about having a good time, but I think he is entitled to have some fun really.

I thought since Harry didn't know Marcus particularly well his reaction would be a bit like that of the general public, only a bit stronger because he actually did know him.

I just felt like I had to write something and I'm just so impressed with all the support I have had.

Thanks so much babe!
