This is an excellent story!! It's got brilliant suspense - I love the format of each axe number. It really helps create a tense gripping atmosphere, and makes it even more compelling to read.
The whole idea is really original, and I really love how it's gryffindor related - you did an incredible job of describing how hard it is to be brave! :)
I found it really moving actually, how upsetting it was for him, and the description made it seem so realistic and riveting. It was a really detailed account of that era as well - quite engrossing - and sickening actually about how the audience reacted to his execution.
Overall, a really descriptive, moving and original story - with a creative choice of character as well! Awesome! :D

Author's Response: Hello!

This idea did quite literally pop into my head - with the axe numbers and so on - and I had to write it. But I think I kind of surprised myself when I actually got it written, because some of the themes that came through I hadn't even thought of before!

The Gryffindor aspect has always really interested me when it comes to Nick. He's very proud of his house and the fact that bravery is one of their traits, but he admits that he was afraid to die. He seems ashamed of it in the books, but I've always thought that death is one of the most natural fears - and who wouldn't be scared to face a death like this?

I'm definitely no expert in history, but something that has always struck me was the way that people used to view public executions as a form of entertainment. It's so alien from what we know now and I think that was one of the points I tried hard to get across. It's important for me to try and make pieces like this correspond with the era they're set in.

Thanks so much for the lovely review! I wasn't expecting any and this made my day again!
