Hi Amanda!

I recently read a book based on WWI, so itís really fun to make comparisons with the muggle and magical versions of it, as this story does seem to show it in another light, and it begins to make you wonder what other historical events may have been like, if magic had been mixed into it.

I rather liked Cho in this chapter, there just seemed to be something about her which drew you in, but I canít really describe what it is. She just seemed so warm and friendly, and I loved that little mention of quidditch, as I was wondering whether she would play it or not, given the gender barriers in the 1910s.

I liked how you didnít make her some rebellious girl, who was keen to make a difference to the war, as Iíve read so many characters like that, it would have been dull to find another one. However, Cho just seemed to have this kindness about her, and just her simple wish of wanting to help others with the war, and to do her little bit.

I thought it was really cool that you made Cho meet Cedric due to him being her patient. Iíve always held a little soft spot for this pairing, I think mainly due to the horrible way it ended, and as they were both so young it just made it even worse.

You spoil us with the hidden meanings again! I love this part of the story, as it just makes it special!

P.S. Iím in the reviewing mood, so you can expect some more this evening :D

Author's Response: Heyyy Kiana :D

The magical world, despite the fact that it seems very old-fashioned in many ways, struck me as being quite progressive compared to its Muggle counterpart. After all, half the Founders of Hogwarts were women! So it seemed okay to have Cho playing Quidditch just like the boys. It's great to hear that you liked her; I wanted her to seem normal, not like the crazy emotional girl she gets painted as so much in fanfiction. She strikes me as being shy but also very likeable. I can't imagine many other reasons for a mostly inexperienced young girl wanting to join the team of nurses helping soldiers aside from a kind nature and desire to help out--unless you count husband-hunting! Haha.

Hopefully you like the way the pairing turns out in this story. Thanks for your sweet review!

-Amanda
