Review:evil little devil says:
I just have to say that I absolutely love the fact that you threw in a mention of Grimm, and that it's a story about the characters of Black Sands - though it's left me dying to find out what happens. Moody is a character who isn't often explored, so it's fascinating to read about him and his background. The whole thing is gorgeously written, of course, but I have to say that the ending is my favourite. It's so heartbreaking, and such a perfect finish.

Author's Response: All of my stories are connecting together in my head, which shouldn't be happening - I must be getting lazy. :P Or maybe it's just my way of re-writing the Potterverse (that rather sounds better). But I'm glad that you like how the three stories are connected - this one rather bridges the two novels (the letter is actually from seventh year - dated sometime in January in the This Longing timeline - whereas the memories start from 1925, two years after Black Sands will end). I've actually imagined a whole sequel to Black Sands, though it's silly of me, but it gives me something to do before falling asleep at night. ;) It was interesting to stretch that story into this one, twisting Helen and Alex from adventurers into parents.

Anyway, I'm wonderfully pleased that you enjoyed this story, especially the ending. I wasn't sure if breaking to Moody's point of view by the end would disturb the narrative flow, but I wasn't sure how else to end outside of returning to the letter. Instead of continuing the adolescent Moody's voice, however, I vied for something a little different. ;)

Thank you very much for reading and reviewing! It means a lot to hear from you. ^_^
