Roots. I'm feeling very shorted right now. I didn't even realize this was the last chapter and now! Gah! It's over!

I really enjoyed that you went through and let us hear Albus explaining it all, but I also kind of feel like you rushed it a bit. You usually do so much detail, every move your characters make that pertain to them, and I love it. So I was surprised when you didn't have them going to Dumbledore's office to discuss this, or show him setting up something around them so they wouldn't be overheard... But I can't tell if I'm feeling this way because this chapter really was missing these things or because I just want this to continue. You make it clear that Albus filled him in on the details when you make the comment about Albus going into greater details that Alastor would be pleased with, but I really wanted to actually hear those and Alastor's reaction to them. I wanted to hear him ask what happened to Crouch Jr, and ask how soon until he'd be able to speak to Harry about what he saw so they could get a better handle on Voldemort's current state... and like I said I don't know if it's actually something missing in this chapter or if I'm greedy. Haha.

Regarldess of that, I still loved the way you tied everything off. You used such a creative way to show us points of Alastor's life, to show us what had been done to him during that year, how Crouch had kept his mind active, reliving itself basically to keep the Auror at relative ease and unable to think... that was all so amazing. You created such a creative story, not only have I never read a Moody centered one, but I doubt anyone has done anything along the lines of this.

You managed to show him so well as a child and show the way he slowly but surely got to the level of 'constant vigilance' that we were introduced to. You kept him the same character all the way through but all the while making him seem realistic for the current age of the chapter.

I'm so happy I found this story, it was such an awesome read and I loved every minute of it. If you ever think about expanding this chapter, let me know and I'll be the first back here to read it ;).

Author's Response: I'm so, so, so, so sorry that it's taken me this long to respond to your review! I'd just like to first off thank you for the wonderful comments you've left me- they're very helpful in the editing process!

I can definitely understand what you're saying about the interaction between Albus and Moody. At the time, I believe I neglected to include a full rendition of the year because everyone knows Harry's side... But I suppose that we don't know Albus' side, which would be, of course, slightly different.

I'm very happy that you liked the manner in which I told this story. It was a very interesting one to write because it allowed me to focus on several key events in Moody's life while at the same time exploring an often unexplained moment in Harry's own history.

I'm so happy that you liked the way I characterized Moody as (as you definitely know), he's a difficult character to get right. He has such a unique personality.

I will let you know once I've edited the story. :) Thanks for taking the time to read and review!
