I am a sucker for mythology and the centaurs are some of my favorite creatures!

The descriptions of the night sky and everything that came to pass between the constellations was very well written. The whole tone of this piece with Firenze and his brothers was very fitting and you captured their proud and independent nature perfectly. I also liked how you called the night sky a "she". It brings forth the point that the sky is a living, breathing entity and we are just small pieces in the whole puzzle.

I was not expecting the centaurs to rebel and kill the wizard and Firenze. It was unexpected but somehow I feel that any other ending wouldn't have done these creatures justice.

Another beautiful piece and I complement you on your writing skills!

Author's Response: Hello again! I love mythology and centaurs too, and exploring their nature in the HP verse a little deeper was a lot of fun for me to write!

It's so good to hear that you liked the descriptions. The main thing I knew about centaurs from HP was their knowledge of divination and constellations, so I felt like it was a good way to begin getting into Firenze's head. The tone was also very important so it's wonderful to know that you liked it. I love your description of being small entities under the living sky: that's beautiful, and certainly what I was hoping to convey. I think Firenze would understand it, but proud and angry Bane wouldn't be able to see it.

I guess I wanted to convey that not all was fine and dandy after Voldy's defeat, and that other groups would take the chance to rise up against wizards. I'm glad you liked the ending: giving the death order was painful, but I definitely felt like the story needed to end that way, like you said.

Thank you so much for another really kind and thoughtful review, I really appreciate it!!! :)
