Hey there! Seems like it's been forever since I've seen you around the forums and such! Probably because I just started coming back recently lol. Anyway, I decided to come creep on your author's page and this story caught my eye!

I actually haven't read very many Minerva stories but the idea of Tom/Minerva/Alastor love triangle was incredibly tempting. I just had to read it. I think it's a really interesting and unique set up. So far you seem to have Minerva very much in character and I like the way you've portrayed a more youthful Alastor. That's definitely very intriguing. I've never really thought about what he would have been like as a younger man. I like what you've done with him because you've portrayed him a bit softer than he is when we know him in the books, which truly makes all kinds of sense because you know, he hasn't 'been there, done that' yet in life. It seems reasonable that he would have been just like this when he was at Hogwarts, because you can still see the shades of the Moody we all know from the books, but it's definitely a characterization that makes sense for a younger version of him.

Also, you get a million points for using a Frank Sinatra song as the title inspiration. I love Sinatra. So much. Makes me wish I had been alive during his day. Sigh.

Anyway, I'm really excited to see where you go with this story! I hope you update soon! (:


Author's Response: Erica! We haven't spoken in what seems like forever! I am so glad you came to check out my author's page and that this story caught your eye. I'm glad the ship tempted you to read this as it tempted me to write it haha. I'm glad that you think my portrayal of the younger Minerva is in character, I see a tad of myself in her but then I want to show what JK saw in her. I think he had to be a bit softer because as this story goes on he'll learn that you have to be tough to survive.

I had to use Frank Sinatra because he's my favourite singer from that era and this is one of my favourite songs.

I'll try to update as soon as possible!!

Thank you and I hope we get to talk over at the forums soon,
