Hi there! I actually submitted a review earlier but I registered for Pottermore at the same time and somehow it crashed? Anyway, sorry about that...

Basically, wow. I absolutely loved this. Its so short and powerful and I think the style and tone are all wonderfully simple and resonate with the reality of what that battle must have been like for the students. I don't know if you had specific characters in mind (I at least imagined Greyback as the attacker) but I saw so many different scenes in my mind as I read through this and I think the universal element to its anonymity is really chilling. I can visualize anyone and everyone in this scene and I think its lovely.

I loved how you said they were "playing at being adults" because seventeen is a lot younger than I used to think it was...most of them were just students and had never even imagined such a real sort of terror. I think you captured this very well and if you look past the passionate canon characters I think there is a lot of general fear and chaos in the battle. Its very moving to imagine the memories they must have from this day.

Anyway, thank you for posting about this. Its beautiful!

Author's Response: The characters are OCs, a Ravenclaw couple named Mark and Julia (who is narrating, remembering having to watch Mark die). Greyback was the attacker, but it was being dragged across splintered wood that killed him, not being mauled by a werewolf.

Thank you so much for being willing to leave such a sweet and lovely review for me! :3
