Hi! I'm here for TGS Review Challenge #1 :)

I was a little floored by this! I love how smoothly and casually you turned the corner from your discussion of Lavender's girlish clinginess to her loss of the baby in the girls' lavatory. I was so caught up in how perfect that one-word characterization of Lavender is, what with her clinging and grasping of life's small trinkets, that I was really shocked to see the dark turn. I really liked it, though - way to turn a character that fans often joke about into a dark, complex young woman.

I liked your use of the scars, too - it's not just a problem of vanity, but truly something that has changed Lavender's life and stolen more than her girlish appearance from her. My favorite part was probably the ending, though. As much as she annoyed me in canon, I'm happy to see this version of Lavender pick herself up and become the Gryffindor the Hat always knew she could be.

Wonderful work! I'm happy I stopped by! :)

Author's Response: Eep, thank you so so much :3 I created my headcanon Lavender as I wrote this, and I loved exploring what might have been in her mind and how she handled the war.

I really wanted to be able to cheer for Lavender, because she wasn't much of a character to cheer for in the books, and that's what ended up happening when I wrote it. I was worried the ending would be too abrupt, and I'm glad it's fitting!

♥ thank you!
