|Review:||The Last Marauder says:|
Oh wow! I loved EVERYTHING about this! The very idea itself is brilliant, so simple, yet brilliant! I loved how Molly grieved as though Harry were her own son. I loved how Ron saw Harry the man, his best-mate, his brother, not Harry the hero. Hagrid's piece gave me chills, really did, had goosebumps while I read it! McGonagall's bit was also really moving, just perfect! I think you had her spot on! Draco's piece was the most interesting of all really, I really liked the Draco you portrayed! I liked how while he hates Harry, he realises that he didn't deserve to die.
What I really liked though, is that while you show several people's grief for Harry, it didn't get repetitive. Each person's grief is their own, I like how you personalised it. It is very easy, in a fic like this, to end up getting very repetitive, but you haven't fallen into this hole, which is brilliant!
I love the refrain: This Ends Today. It's a great end to each chapter and it links each little piece together brilliantly!
I think all your characterisation is spot on, I can't fault it! I will just tell yah that Ron's piece is my favourite, I just think it's both beautifully written and very moving!
Anyway this fic is great and I can't wait to read some more of your stuff!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad that you enjoyed it. When I first wrote this, I worried a lot that the sections were too similar and it would feel repetitive, so I'm glad it didn't seem that way to you.
I'm also really glad that you liked Ron's section. I adore writing Ron and am working on a short story/collection about him and Harry at the moment. I would say that it is one of my favorite sections, but I think that looking through my other comment responses, I've probably said that about most of the sections by now. Oh well, I do love Ron's section, because I love Harry and Ron's relationship. It's real. In life, we often don't have people who are always there and never let us down. No, we fight over stupid things, we stop talking and avoid each other, then we get over it, apologize, and make up. That's kind of how friendships work, to varying extents :)
Sorry, I'm a rambler :P Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!
