Hi darling! Here for the review tag.

As ever, I loved this story. It's so unique to read something from a Dementor's perspective, so I think you've done brilliantly here to find something so original to write. Dementors are always portrayed as such soulless creatures in the books so it's actually really enjoyable to read something from their perspective, especially when you add so much depth to them.

I loved the background story you created for Derwent and his family; it provided a real contrast to the life they now lead and the horrible atmosphere of Azkaban. Something else I thought was really clever was the use of the surname Diggle - it's nice to think that Dedalus might be one of his descendants!

The idea that the recipients of the Dementor's Kiss go on to become Dementors themselves is really interesting, and I thought you used the little we know about them very effectively in this one-shot. The jokes Derwent was making were really funny - I can definitely imagine his children groaning at them and begging him not to tell them in public.

I felt so sorry for Derwent here. It's really adorable that he wants to find his family again and I thought you got the balance between sadness and humour just right. I hope he does find them!

Author's Response: Hola! :)

I'm glad you liked this story, it was just this fun little idea I wrote one rainy afternoon! :P I had so much fun giving a soulsucking Dementor some personality, and coming up with Dementor lore and Derwent's story, so I'm glad you enjoyed!

Ah, I'm glad you liked the Diggle reference! Poor Derwent doesn't even know how much time has passed, but I imagined Dedalus being Derwent's great-grandson myself.

I think I based Derwent's jokes on my dad, he's just like that as well! I did wonder how Dementors became they way they are, and the zombie-like effect seemed to fit. I'm glad you feel sorry for poor Derwent, and I hope he finds his family too! :)

Thank you so much for this lovely review my dear! :D
