Oh academia. This is so sweet but so sad at he same time. You can just imagine Andromeda sitting here writing this, aware that everyone has left her.

I loved how it was written in first person as it really let the emotion roll out through the story. I could really feel as if she was the forgotten one. The one who had tried to be unique and had gone away from everything she had known to something unfamiliar but something she loved. The rift between her life and her parents life was huge so she had no-one and she couldn't go back even if she had wanted to.

I also liked how you made the contrast between Tonks and Teddy with them both being babies and watching them grow up. With Tonks she died leaving her Teddy but now Teddy was safe so her role was done. She had no husband to be a wife for and no daughter to be a mother for. Teddy didn't need her and now she felt so alone. I really felt that.

This is going to be a story I'm remembering for such a long time. Well done

Author's Response: Hey, thanks for coming by!

Yeah, I just kind of put myself in Andromeda's mindset and let the words come out. She seemed like that prototypical middle child who never quite shines like her siblings do, and yet we remember her as being one of only a few Black family members who were brave enough to make a better choice--and in the face of overwhelming pressure not to do so.

I think of her like a stage hand, making sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible but never really taking anything for herself. I did try to give a sense of resolution at the end, though, because what she has is enough for her, and she's satisfied with her outcome.

Thanks for your very kind review!
