hey hun
here to review!

i really liked this! its very tender and has this innocence to it. i think, had you have chosen aberforth to narrate this story it would not have worked. with ariana, there is a sense of wonder and detachment, of knowing and learning and of being alone but not being lonely.

character wise, i think both are done wonderfully. as minor characters in canon, all we know is the tragic history, and you used that and took it further to give them some flesh, so to speak. i can easily imagine aberforth grieving for so long, and can imagine beyond this, where grief turns to subtle anger, mistrust and resentment, like we see in DH.

the dialogue was realistic - it was not overly dramatic, but it didn't need to be for this situation. well done!

sorry if this review is...not what you wanted, lol. i can't think of anything else to say other than this was lovely. really original and thought-provoking!

Author's Response: oh my gosh, what a lovely review! I'd really hoped to include that innocence, because after all, Ariana was very young when she died so she wouldnt have had time to mature. She would have to learn things in a completely different way to everyone else. I found it so interesting thinking about how to write this. And minor characters are love! I'm so glad you thought Aberforth was okay, I did worry that he wouldn't gel with the Aberforth we know in DH. But a lifetime is a long time, I suppose.

thank you so much for the wonderful review!!
