Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
In addition to the "aww" I said aloud once I'd finished reading this, I was thinking "wow, this is so Neville. This is who he is." He was never jealous of the others, was never looking for fame or glory, the most he ever sought was revenge for his parents - his very humility makes him an incredibly complex, nay, real, character, and you capture this aspect of him perfectly.

Everything here, the narrative voice - so easy and relaxed - the message behind his words, and the happiness that he finds at the end, turned out wonderfully. Thank you for reminding readers that heroism is often not about grand deeds and violent acts, but about being human. :)

Author's Response: Thanks very much for the review of this. I was actually worried that Neville's voice here didn't sound right, so hearing from you that it's okay makes me feel better.

I agree that Neville would feel strange being portrayed as a hero and would always be a bit deprecating of what he did. I've struggled writing him for another piece and I'm glad this came out better.

And yes, true heroism is about helping others and being true to your morals, so I wanted to show that.

Your opinion means a lot to me, so I feel validated now. :)
