Hi Cassie! I really enjoyed this little one-shot. For such a short snapshot, it conveyed so much. I love stories about minor characters, and in this you did a great job with the background for Mary Cattermole. She's rather an inconsequential character in DH but she has such depth in this, a quiet strength.

The imagery is very good as well; the way you highlighted the little things like her hair length, the silver comb, the fact that her grandmother made the wedding dress... it shows how much Mary is holding on to the things she has as she walks into an uncertain future, and its those little things in life that she cherishes most. I also liked how the beginning and the ending sentences were the same, it nicely framed all the thoughts she's having as she waits for her name to be called.

This was really well done, great job!

Author's Response: Hello!
I'm so glad you enjoyed this one-shot! I really enjoyed writing it, and actually sat down and wrote it all in one sitting, because I just had this feeling of how I wanted the story to go. I'm so glad you liked that Mary was holding onto little things from her life before the war, because I think those show who she is as a person more than anything else. I wanted to make her a strong character, but in the way that she's going to be as brave as she can while still sitting quietly, think about her family. A quiet strength was an excellent way to out it! I'm so glad you enjoyed this one-shot, and thank you so much for reviewing!
Cassie :)
