Actually, I caught the topic on the HPFF forums where you were asking for help on the title. While I floundered there (and couldn't help, sorry, although I really like the title that you ended up going with - it's beautiful and poetic), the idea of this ship sounded intriguing so I ended up stalking down your author's page and... voila.

And I'm really glad that I did! This fic was everything that I hoped it to be, and more. Your beautiful descriptions, linking the personified weather to Minerva's feelings, your use of imagery to create such a muted atmosphere, your use of second person to explore McGonagall's thoughts just that degree sharper... and those last lines. Just, wow. I love how you didn't over-describe the relationship, or sicken it with sentimentality, but rather left hints of it for us readers to catch. I think that you've really made this pairing seem plausible, while leaving both characters IC. A beautiful read, thank you. ^_^

Author's Response: I was floored to hear that you've been watching for this fic ever since I posted about it - the reaction to this new ship has been surprisingly positive. I didn't think I'd get such a good response to it!

I like how you phrased the bit about second person making it possible to explore Minerva's thoughts a degree sharper. I've been sort of intrigued by second person, even while being a bit wary of it at the same time, and I figured this was a good time to explore that style. It almost seems more genuine to me than first person, and in this case, also slightly more accusatory - so it fit what I was trying to do perfectly.

Both characters IC, and a plausible pairing at that? XD I couldn't ask for better praise!

I really appreciate your review, and I'm glad you enjoyed reading this!
