Wow, this was incredible. I rarely read songfics, the most I've found had very chesy songs in them. This one was great. I even opened it up on youtube and had it playing while I was reading this, and it even strengthened the experience. The song interlaced with the story perfectly. The overall feel of it really tugged at my heart. Families can be so destructive to each other. Astoria was the typical victim here...bearing way too much on her shouders for the loyalty she felt toward her father. It was agonizing to read, as it always is with these cases. The imagery you provided, however, made the reading so much more bearabe, because even though it was sad, it was kind of fascinating at the same time. The symbolism of the storm that went with the story, especially appearing at the end really moved me.

I loved, by the way, the connection with Draco, such an unexpected one at that. It was refreshing to have him as a character and not deal with HIS darkness and demons for once. having him as a side character and seeing him through Astoria's eyes added a really nice touch.

You have a lovely way with words in your one-shots, and you're a master at setting up the setting...I loved the image of the storm, and the meadow and Draco trying to protect her. This was simply a very interesting read, touching upon a very sensitive issue with great care. Great job.

Author's Response: I am so happy you listened to the song while you read it, I did the same while I wrote it and I feel like her incredible voice just brings a lot to the experience.

Ahhh that's exactly what I wanted to do - make a very dark topic easier to handle and less brutal with imagery. It makes me really happy that it helped to keep a smooth feeling to this piece, because it was really important for me to focus on things other than what he was actually doing to her.

That's exactly the reason I used Draco, i wanted him to be the savior.

Thank you so much for this awesome review, it just made my day ♥
