I can't believe you have a Molly/Arthur and I hadn't reviewed it. I was sure I had, I know I read it back when you posted it cause I remember talking about it with you, but I looked through and don't see my name on the reviews so winning, I can review it now ;)

I like that you portrayed neurological disorders as uncurable by magic. I think it fits with canon, where they can try to make magical brain injuries better but can't just instantly fix them. And while I hate hate hate my darling Arthur having Alzheimer's, you certainly did a fantastic job writing about it. My grandfather had Alzheimer's for the last few years of his life, so I have seen it up close and personal.

Of course Arthur would want to take the Muggle meds. That's so him. But it's so sad to see him fading away, and Molly there with him suffering because he's gone but not gone. And the moments of lucidity will come less and less often (I feel like that's grammatically inexact, but you get me) until he's completely gone. And now I want to cry thinking about it. Poor Molly, she's just not able to keep up with this at her age, she needs help. Taking away his wand seems like a good idea, even if it is a hard thing for him.

Also I love the way Ron refers to Scorpius XD Made me laugh.

Ron's right that they shouldn't be home alone, it's too much for Molly to deal with. And ack, when Arthur describes Molly's pregnancy with Ron and says they're hoping for a girl. Awkward. Poor Ron.

If I can offer something here: his thin, wane smile It should be "wan", not "wane". :)

I'm never surprised to see a staffer write wonderfully. We get the best of the crop (and then shove them in the queue to read things that burn out their eyes, but that's beside the point). So I'm not surprised at how good this is. It's so very sad and poignant. *sigh* I wish there was a way to make Arthur better. But that would wreck the emotional point of the story. Yeah. Very well done!

Author's Response: I thought you had read it too!

The fact that neurological disorders can't be cured is like my own personal little canon that I created for myself. To me, it makes sense. It was heartbreaking for me to do that to Arthur, but it's realistic and it's really something that a lot of people don't write about, but something a lot of people can identify with.

I still get really sad when I read it. I suck. :P

Thanks so much for stopping by to read this, though, I really truly appreciate it very much!
