Review:SiriuslyPeeved says:
I love Celtic music and was familiar with the story of the song-- I played it while I was reading, and found the story doubly powerful! The setting and details are wonderful. I especially liked your aside that Wizard photographs could not freeze time and capture the expressions in the way Molly wanted: it's rare in a fanfic to see Muggle technology compared favorably in such a way.

The romance was very nicely done, subtle and realistic, drawing in her initial misgivings about him (I laughed at the "smelly/unwashed" bit) and moving on to capture the everyday feeling of their relationship.

The way you transformed the song's central event to fit in the Muggle world was heartbreaking -- I won't leave a spoiler review just in case someone stumbles on this first and hasn't heard the song -- but you did a beautiful job changing it just enough to make it fit. I loved how you described the policeman, how he looked like a rat but sounded royal. Little details like that are what make this story so compelling.

Author's Response: Hello SiriuslyPeeved!
Thank you so much! Yes, I am a huge fan of Celtic music myself (obviously, hehe). I always found this song strangely haunting and when I was listening to it one day, I thought it would be interesting to pair it with the HP character, Molly Weasley II. Originally, although, Molly's fate was quite different (less tragic), but then again, I can never resist writing angst.

And I'm so glad you enjoyed my take on wizard photography vs. its muggle counterpart. For some reason, I thought someone interested in the art of photography would prefer still frames to moving pictures.

Again, thank you for everything! Your kind review really meant so much to me. Take care and be well!

Best,
celticbard
