Today is the day I resumed reading fanfictions. And I really wanted to read your work. I have been urging myself to do so for some time now but uni work has prevented me from doing it earlier.

As the rest of your stories, this was a pleasure to my still developing artistic senses to read. You successfully captured Moody's essence in this little one shot. One of the phrases that reinforces my thought is "This time, they had Harry Potter, an unprecedented weapon that would help the Order avenge all they had lost in the initial conflict". I know Moody appreciated and respected Harry for the bravery with which he withstood everything that his difficult life threw at him, but this little phrase here just screams Moody. And the particular words would be "Harry Potter - the weapon". As a trained war fighter I guess he considered everyone and everything a weapon for achieving victory. And who is to blame him? After all he has seen, I guess the greater good mattered more.

I liked how the whole story revolved around his life motto. He kept true to it even in his last moments. I can't find a better word to describe him than: brave. I can't imagine how hard it must be to know you are going to die, feel the numbness creeping in, and still have the immense power to not break.

Wonderful piece! As always :)

Author's Response: I'm so honored that you wanted to stop by, and I'm sorry that this response took so long!

I'm very pleased that you saw little pieces of Moody's character in this story. You're right in that years of being a soldier have hardened him quite a bit, and that the greater good is more important to him than any one life, even his own.

There are many ways to imagine Gryffindor bravery, and I thought Moody made for a good example of one extreme version of courage. It's certainly a quality I wish I had more of.

Thanks very much for such a sweet review! :)
