Hey there!

Woah, this chapter was amazing, and so powerful and so emotional and pretty much perfect. Ha, who am I kidding? It wasn't pretty much perfect, it WAS perfect! I think period writing must be one of the hardest things to do, and you have mastered it - using the unusual combination of present tense and third person, too.

That's another thing I love about this story - it's so amazingly original! I can't remember if I've said this in an earlier review, but I've actually wondered whether wizards and witches were involved in the world wars and, well, now I know!

Okay, enough of my gushing and onto this chapter!

Aw, Simon! He's so adorable and your wrote that flashback absolutely perfectly - it all felt so real and intense and I really, really wish the whole family had Disapparated! I am definitely looking forward to learning more about Simon and what his life now is like. I think my two favourite lines of the flashback, purely because they made my lower lip quiver, and made me want to bawl my eyes out were: "Don't cry, Mama. They say they're taking us to a special territory east of Germany, a territory just for us. Pitchipoï." and also "I'm sure you will. The Nazis are violent, but they aren't monsters." Sob! Poor Simon! I just want to give him a big hug - he seemed so loving and caring in the flashback!

I'm definitely interested to find out more about this school Astrid is now going to be teaching out. I'm sure she is going to run into some problems and I'm now wondering what those will be.

This was a fantastic chapter - awesome work!

You may never see this response because I'm over two years late in responding to this wonderful review but allow me to flail all over the place anyway.


Oh, Simon. I'm currently rewriting pretty much everything but the Simon sections are the ones I touch the least, if at all. I'm so glad you like his POV, even if it makes you cry (sorryyy)!

Well, of course Astrid is going to have problems, it just wouldn't be quite as much fun to write otherwise...

Thank you for the review dear :)
