Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
Julia, this was so sad! I knew it would be, of course, because it was about Colin, but the way you wrote it just made everything all the more poignant - the tense you used, the simplicity of the style, the straightforwardness. And I must say that your photography know-how was impressive and helped the story absorb me while I was reading. The trunk collecting dust and the way his belongings had just been jumbled carelessly inside of it, and the more recent pictures of Hogwarts that brought Dennis renewed pain just gave me so many feels. I feel so awful for poor Dennis. I think the very worst bit for me was the part mentioning donating Dennis's cauldron and things and that they were only keeping the robes to use as hand-me-downs, but Dennis would never wear them. I can't imagine I would want to, either. At the end of the story, I got the feeling that Colin will go on living through Dennis - that he'll never truly be gone. This reflects on what you said earlier about how the dead don't always stay that way in the magical world, so in this respect you perfectly captured the sort of strange magic in death that Potterverse has.

Very touching, somber one-shot.



Author's Response: soroh! ah, it was a bit of a purge of feels to write - I basically typed it all in one go then peeked from between my fingertips as I posted it (I didn't even proofread...I just knew that, if I did, it would never find its way to my author's page as per). so it's been a bit overwhelming to read the responses this has got and, eee, your response is making me a bit giddy. in the books, colin and dennis seemed very much alike so, er, yeah~. um I'm not sure I can formulate a coherent response to this but thank you so much for leaving this beautiful, beautiful review ♥ ♥ ♥
