This chapter is amazing! I absolutely love it!

Like I always crow, you have a knack with characterizations. I thought everyone was very canonical, even your OC's. Which is a refreshing change from some OC's which I feel are sometimes thrown in for the author's entertainment and not much else. Your Unsinkable characters feel as if they were simply characters that didn't have their stories told yet belong in the Potterverse as much as the Thomas', Tonks', Creevey's, etc.

I couldn't help but give a grudging smile when Hattie said that they probably thought Fleur was a princess. Though, I can imagine they would. She is beautiful and pixie/faerie-like, after all.

I also like how Beatrice flinched when the Cattermole boy mentioned boy's toys. I think it punctuated the family's grief yet it wasn't too over the top, at the same time.

I think that's one thing that I admire about your stories, too. You don't seem to be trying too hard, and yet your work is absolutely splendid!

The emotions in this piece were so gripping and realistic, it made me sad and happy all at once. I feel like your descriptions not only give your pieces a touch of realism but depth, as well.

I can only hope that things get better for Hattie and Edwin.

This was truly a delight to read!


Author's Response: The Fleur thing, I think when presented with Bill and Fleur as a couple, they must seem straight out of a fairy tale. Bill and his scarred-up face, very tall man, and the super-beautiful part-veela Fleur. Very Beauty and the Beast.

I'm glad it didn't go too over the top, I wanted them to be more focused on the Cattermoles here than on their own grief. And I wanted to illustrate that Hattie isn't the only one still in pain - Beatrice has lost her big brother.

The Cattermole children are all named in canon (Maisie, Ellie, and Alfred) but it didn't really fit in to put that into the story. It seemed forced. So yeah, those are their names.

I love writing characters. I actually love characters more than plot sometimes. Maybe most of the time ;) But then, I like plots that are very internal and character-driven. Anyway, fitting the Unsinkable characters into canon has been in my head all along. All their kids were carefully plotted to not get in the way of canon. Did you notice the mention of Addie's friend? ;) Hattie's kids are all Hufflepuffs like their dad, except Addie, who is a Gryffindor.

Thank you so much for the review! I'm really glad you liked it. I'm not used to your new username yet ;)
