I'm sorry Sarah but I cannot. I have lost the ability to can.

I honestly meant to give you a deep and insightful review for every chapter but instead I've just left you this trail of snipped incoherent squees and for that I am sorry, but also not sorry - today I was busy but I could not stop reading this for the life of me. So I flew through the chapters. At 29, I realised I had to catch a train in ten minutes and decided just to speed on without reviewing - I reached the end, nearly cried, then spent a happy few minutes flying around the flat collecting my belongings and just about caught the train in the nick of time. And whilst I feel bad for not being able to sit down and think about each chapter one at a time, I'm glad I marathoned it and then had those moments to sit on the train and THINK.

I was so emotionally invested in this and I still am - I felt so much for them all, and that's unusual for a story with such a large cast and so many central characters. (but we both know how I feel about Colin). Favourite chapter by far was definitely when Colin and Orla found Witching. I mean, I was an emotional wreck from the moment the last round took place, but that chapter got to me especially - I was so, so happy he saw it to the end, even if he didn't win. And Fred winning, and Fred switching with George - I'm so happy that happened too, and that Eileen was discovered in Witching, and that they all trickled over, and that Orla's photograph became the one that Severus cherished - for me, that's the most potent image of that fic. I think it all started to click into place from there.

So it's really hard to express what I'm trying to say here, haha! This was an amazing story; one of the best I've ever read since I got into fan fiction (I mean that seriously). Thank you so, so much for writing it and basically I love this and you to pieces ♥

Author's Response: I LOVED your trail of incoherent squees. You jotted down the things that stood out to you the most, and therefore those things now stand out the most to me, too. It's hard to tell which bits I did all right and which ones were boring when I put in so many details and everything's this monster ksdjfsdkfj word thing. That doesn't make sense. Not backspacing because you're unlikely to ever read this because I'm sure you've lost all hope I'd ever respond.

Okay at this point I just want to talk about pancakes.

CAN I JUST SAY HOW HAPPY I AM THAT YOU FINISHED BEFORE YOUR TRAIN RIDE SO THAT YOU COULD THINK ABOUT IT ON THE TRAIN. That's so weird. Someone thinking about something I've written, like really THINKING about it. Possibly best compliment ever.

There were so many loose ends to tie up. I couldn't get around to all of them just because it would be unrealistic to have EVERY little thing sealed up with a bow. Like Rowena's love square or whatever she's got going on. Her issues with Godric and Salazar just about span eons, so to have that completely resolved within a two-month time frame is pretty much impossible. So that's one of the story lines I envisage keeps continuing as always long after the story's finished. I think she just likes being unhappy. She lurves the drama llamas. But everything else - Witching and Eileen and Fred going back and Colin living and Colin being able to go there with Orla - I just could not picture writing this super long novel and having it end on such a horrible note as Colin snuffing it.

Saying that this is one of the best fanfics you've yet read absolutely makes my year, coming from such a brilliant author. I admire you so much and ksdjfkdjf (hug) ♥ you are just the bees knees, okay. ♥ ♥ Thank you so much for reading this story.
