Review:Alopex says:
Well, first off, I have to say I am not a fan of the second person . . . I find it very difficult to read, so I'm glad this little drabble wasn't any longer! You had a very intersting prompt, by the way. I really like the way you approached it. I'm not sure I would have thought to have a character looking IN through a window instead of OUT through a window.

I knew from the chapter image who the character in this story would be, but you kept it nice and mysterious until the end. I thought the end was very poignant and moving. I felt so sad! The entire story had a melancholy air to it, despite the playing children, but the ending was a real slammer.

Author's Response: Writing this piece in second person was an extra challenge to myself, because it is definitely not a POV I usually attempt. So thanks for reading it anyway, even though you're not a fan of that POV, and I promise none of the other chapters are in second person.

It's funny actually, because I think everyone who wrote a drabble for the challenge that week talked about looking in a window rather than out (although there were only four of us left that week).

I debated about using Draco on the chapter image actually, but I'm glad it still felt a bit of a mystery anyway. I'm glad you liked the ending and that I was able to get across that feeling of melancholy. Thanks so much for reviewing.
