Review:Renfair says:
I seem to be inadvertently reading a lot of Moody stories lately, but that's cool cause he's such a great character!

"his skills, his instinct too valuable to give up too easily" --That must be so hard for any veteran fighter when they see young people going into battle in their place. They know they have more experience, more skill, and less chance of getting themselves killed doing something stupid, but if they *are* killed, all of that knowledge and experience is gone in an instant.

"(her anger frightens him more than the prospect of fighting, of the war)." --Hehehe, I would agree!

Wow, this chapter was kind of uncanny for me personally, because in my own story I have Molly talking about what it was like during the first war when she wasn't able to join up because she was pregnant with the twins and had three other little terrors--I mean boys--running around (can you tell I have one myself??) Hmm, I wonder if you'll have her join up yourself or if she waited until the second war. I've been kind of torn between the idea that mothers of young children should be excluded because yes, sacrifices need to be made but there also needed to be SOME people whose sole job was raising the next generation and the idea that there isn't anything more fierce in the world than a mother protecting her babies. So... it's really such a tough choice for women like Molly and Lily especially in this time period.

These little snippets into each character's thoughts and emotions are great!

Author's Response: I love reading Moody stories! If you haven't already, academica has a really good one. :)

I really wanted to get the point across that Moody was such a valuable asset to the Order. He may have seemed super paranoid in the second war, but I imagine seeing what he did, watching all those kids die must have been so hard. His skills were so important too and while I'm not sure if Dumbledore really could have kept Moody from going out there and battling Death Eaters, it worked better this way for my fic.

Heh, Molly Weasley's infamous temper. I would be scared too.

You'll have to read to find out what I have Molly choose, but it was definitely a difficult decision because while she does have young children at home, I can't imagine Molly really sitting back while everyone else fights for her safety too. There were a lot of pros and cons for each decision, let me tell you.

I'm glad you're enjoying this fic. Thanks for the reviews - I was definitely very pleasantly surprised.
