I don't think I should've read this so early in the morning.

You are amazing. You do justice to the emotions that must surround a woman who has lost so much in a war in more ways than one. Even without being a mother, im sure anyone can relate to what it must feel like to lose a child, let alone four.

Sometimes, because of her sometimes stiff demeanor, one can forget that Minerva is the Head of Gryffindor house and thus the embodiment of what it means to be a Gryffindor. But you lay it out so clearly here. The sadness, the grief that grips her throughout this, even in losing Sirius, whom she thinks is mad and lost.

And then that last basically wrung my heart out. This was just gorgeous prose and full of emotion. I'm so glad I caught this.


Author's Response: YOU are amazing. I'm blushing! I think writing emotions has always come easily to me, if my reviewers haven't lied to me, at least. So I'm glad that the emotions still come across well in this fic.

Minerva is often portrayed as this stern, no-nonsense teacher. I can see parts of that in her character, yes, but you can't watch your students grow up and not feel some attachment to them, you can't not feel a sense of loss when they're gone. She's human, after all. And poor Sirius - his absence hurts just as much as the rest of him. Yes, he's still alive, but he's done something that seems unforgivable.

That last line kills everyone! Thank TenthWeasley for telling me to just leave it as is - good choice on her part.

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. I love seeing reviews from you and this was no exception. Your praise of my work is going to give me the biggest ego ever.
