Hello there(:

This is a great story you have here. I really like when people explore characters that aren't as developed and Moody is definitely one of those characters. I thought it was great the way you portrayed his life and his background. It was like an explanatory story for the Moody we know from the books; it let us visualize how he became to be who he is.

The last lines are really powerful. "She had lived by it. His father had died by it. And so shall he." Incredible stuff there. They really resonate, which is great because since they're at the end, it makes the story all the more memorable.

Good work!

Author's Response: Thank you very much! :D Moody's a character who hangs around in the background of my stories, and I finally decided that, for this challenge, it was time to let him loose in my imagination. There are so many fascinating aspects to his character, so many questions, that I've always been drawn to him, and I've often wondered how he got his scars and why he went mad - there's a lot to explore with him.

I'm really pleased that you liked how I portrayed his background and early life. This story got out of control on me at times, making me wonder just who I was actually writing about. XD The last scene, though, is meant to be Moody leaving his house for the last time, not long before his death. Even though it meant for a sudden switch in POV, I liked the idea of finishing things with Moody looking back on his parents. I can't remember where those exact words came from, but it means a lot to hear that they make the story memorable. That's the best compliment of all. ^_^
