Wow. You are such a good writer. What an excellent ending to the story. I feel a bit drained after reading it! It was so sad, touching, inspiring, and cathartic all at the same time. The scene with Reid was great. You managed to bring a bit of humor and lightness to the chapter without trivializing anything or being ridiculous. The scene with Arthur was also good and very emotional. The end, of course, was a bit of a relief and conclusion, but still obviously sad.

One of the things I enjoy most about your Unsinkableverse is that all these people have remained friends for so many years. It makes them feel like my old friends too, since I've gotten to witness their journey. It's wonderful that Hattie still has her old friends around her, and they are still so close. That's something special.

I also loved the symbolism with the cherry tree. I did something similar with a plant in one of my stories. It's an obvious and easy choice, and it's been done so many times by so many writers, but it still works, you know?

This was a great story topped off by a great chapter. I can't believe I didn't read this sooner!

Author's Response: Aw thank you so much *blushes* It is a pretty sad story, but life presses on despite the sadness so I tried to show that. The son dies, but the family has to figure out how to go on without him. I really liked writing about Harry from the perspective of a witch/wizard who doesn't know him, because he's such a famous person but they don't really understand him at all, you know? But she knows that Arthur does know Harry quite well, so.

I love a bit of humor. I'm glad it could bring things up without trivializing the rest of the story, thank you.

I think some would be closer than others - I can see Molly and Hattie having tea together at least once a week for the rest of their lives, and Petula and Dunstan live down the road from each other, Hattie and Reid of course remain very close - but they'd all keep in touch. They had a close bond, especially the girls.

The tree is an obvious choice, but it works so well that it's hard to resist adding the theme in.

Thank you so much for reviewing! I'm so pleased that you liked this story :)
