Edward,

I came to check up on your author's page and saw this tale. I'm really glad that I did.

I've only read a few tales that deal with the end of Harry's life, in old age. But none of them could ever compare to this.

The memory lapses were such a wrenching twist in this tale. In part, it seemed better for Harry not to remember that he had outlived so many of the people in his life. While, on the other hand, it was so painful to see our hero laid low by old age.

It was exceedingly emotional when Harry began to relive Ginny's death. Excellent writing, that.

Who wants to live forever? Seeing a tale like this bring the true ramifications of such a desire into such stark relief is quite gripping. It seems such a horrible fate, until one realizes that, as you so aptly characterized harry, the ability to finally outlive his burdensome fame and to be surrounded by such a huge family must have been a great comfort.

Excellent touch that, in the end, his friends and family came for him; and Sirius as the Grim. Perfect. Especially creative how they knew Harry died when only Giselle could hear him.

A superb and original tale.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you were the first to review this story. it was such a hard story for me to write. as you know from my other stories, I usually have harry in great physical shape and ready to face everything that comes to him. my super Harry complex was hard to overcome. I decided to write this one to try to get away from that for a while. it didn't end up nearly as dark as i had first intended, but the storyline changed slightly in my mind when I was writing it. I was well into it when i realized that the story was centered on Harry, but the real subjects of the story were the family members around Harry and how they related to him. For some of them the way they felt about him went through a profound transformation. I'm really happy that you liked it. i have to say thank you to the Story Seekers Podcast for featuring you as an author on the podcast. That brought me to read and love your stories and enabled me to have a great author like you review my stories. By the way, i left a review on the one story on you page that i had not rad until few days ago. i went back later to check for your reply about it and found that the review wasn't there at all. i guess i timed out when i was writing it or something. I will get back over there and leave you another one. Until then, Happy reading.
