Hey! -BookDinosaur- *finally* here with your requested review! I'm so sorry for the length of time it took for me to get it to you!
Anyways, down to reviewing. I really, really loved this one-shot. Honestly, I feel guilty because I have no CC for you except there was a typo near the end, you put 'them' instead of 'then', which is what I think it's supposed to be.
Well, first of all, I'm really glad you decided to do this on Andromeda - it really helps to put into perspective what all the minor characters went through during the war as well. You portrayed her absolutely perfectly as a woman in a man's world, but I wanted to shake her and hug her at the same time for thinking she's not important. She is important, darn it! Look what she did for Teddy, and trying to fight Voldemort, and just everything.
The flow of this story was amazing as well, the words seemed to flow together like poetry and it was really a pleasure to read. I don't know if you meant it to be that way, but it turned out that way anyway, and it was brilliant.
I love your ending, it was really powerful and I just wanted to tell her that, darn it, she has done enough and of course she's going to be remembered. The story felt very complete to me, I don't think you had anything to worry about there. :)
So, all in all, this was an absolutely beautiful one-shot Amanda, and I really enjoyed reading it. :D
Author's Response: Hey, no worries! I know your queue was really long so thanks for taking the time to come by.
Fixed the typo now. Thanks for pointing it out!
Yeah, we know she's important, but maybe she didn't know that. Obviously it would take a hugely generous person to keep going and raise Teddy after all the tragedy poor Andromeda went through. I thought of her as being quite courageous, also, for keeping her head up and not letting things get to her forever, such as the shame she must have endured after leaving her family for Ted.
You're the person to say that this story has really good flow. I don't know that I structured it intentionally to be like that, but it's awesome that you think it came out that way. Sometimes I'm so pleasantly surprised by what different reviewers point out to me.
I was worried that the ending wasn't powerful enough, so it's reassuring to hear you say that you liked it. I'm happy that it feels complete.
Thank you for your wonderful review!
