And so James, Remus, Sirius, Peter, Lily. all enter into the Order and in one way or another, give their lives to the war. Blah. You are on a mission - you want to send me into a big sloppy ball of angsty tears, right? I think this was the perfect way to show just how the Order formed, and I am *so* jealous at your portrayal of Dumbledore. He's absolutely perfect. Completely. Do you know how hard that man is to write?! Obviously not considering it sounds like he was chatting over your shoulder while you did this.

This entire first chapter of the collection revolving around the Phoenix, around what that bird means and stands for, was very creative and extremely powerful. You've taken some that is hardly ever thought about, that I've never seen depicted (the forming of the Order from Dumbledore's twinkling blue to McGonagall's righteous heart) and turned it into a moving and haunting piece. We know what happens, we know how everything ends and we know what these people give for the Order.

And now thanks to you, I know how it started. This was beautifully done, your writing has seriously been the highlight of my day.

The line about the pin feeling heaving, feeling heavy like the weight of the world and her students lives. That single line just twisted my heart, is brought my directly to the reminder of Into the Darkest of the Grave - because she really is one of the very few to survive the first wizarding world. And I bet that kills her every day.

Truly beautiful piece.

Great job! ♥

Author's Response: Bahaha, well, yes, that is my ultimate goal. The angst of the Marauder era is unavoidable! It just draws me in. ;)

Gah, Dumbledore scares me! To this day, I think this is probably the only good portrayal I've ever written of him and it took a long time for me to really wrap my head around how I wanted him to come across. I'm really happy it worked for you. :)

Besides the trouble with Dumbledore, this whole chapter practically wrote itself. The idea surrounding the phoenix literally just popped into my head one day and was like, "The phoenix is such a perfect description of the Order itself."

Your reviews are the highlight of my day, so thank you! You are far too kind ('m doing a little internal squee).

I'm glad you made the connection between Into the Darkness of the Grave and this fic since they really do correlate with one another. :)

Thank you so much, again. You are a rockstar. I owe you for your sweet reviews.
