Review:Yolanda Yaxley the Yuletide Yak says:
aargh, how do you transform such deep grief and pain into such beautiful words? I felt Minerva's losses along with her, and the way you have written each grief building up (reminding the reader of bodies in graves) - it buries us, too.

I love the description of Minerva as a lion and a mother with her children, because that is what she is at her core, and it sums her up so perfectly. The short opening paragraphs were so effective in introducing her as she is in her grief, and I also loved the format of one, two, three, (four) as it separated each load of grief and made each fresh batch of pain more weighty.

Each death seems to mean more when you write the different perspectives; it reminds the reader that once upon a time, we were shocked that Sirius Black was innocent, and that wizards were celebrating for a reason. And all the funerals for the Marauders, the grieving, also accentuates how lonely Remus has been left now his only friends were dead (or as good as) in one fell swoop.

It is so beautiful, just as so much of your angst is. I'm very glad that Secret Santa has given me the chance to read some of your stuff! :)
