OH MY SWEET LORD RACHEL. REALLY? A FIC WRITTEN BY YOU ABOUT COLIN CREEVEY? That's thing that'll definitely end if feels - and it has, so I guess... well done.

I've been a lot of war/sad fics recently and they've all been so good that I've been very sad. Colin Creevey was definitely the biggest 'shock' death for me. I always knew that the entire Weasley family could not come through unscathed, and so Fred's death didn't shock me (although I always thought it would be Percy). But Colin - I think it was particularly sad because he was almost the most mentioned of Harry's friends in the younger years, and because, like you said, he was so unwavering loyal.

This is written so well, as well, and makes the feels hit that much harder. You're such a great writer - I love your word choice, your characterisation, everything. I think what makes it so much more moving was definitely was the mantra of calling and answering.


Author's Response: Ah, Colin. ♥ My heart twinges for him -- he's one of the most innocent characters in the books, and so GOOD. You know? One of the best examples of a true, through-and-through Gryffindor, and seeing as he's a Muggle-born, that is saying loads. I'm getting more feels just writing about him in this response!

I'm not sure who the biggest "shock" death was for me, but I do know that Colin's was one I definitely didn't see coming. It makes it much harder when you realize that, as he wasn't of age, he really shouldn't have stayed behind. But he knew the risks, and he laid down his life for them, and that is a very noble thing. ♥ He was so loyal, all throughout the series -- to Harry, to the DA, to Hogwarts -- and I just. I love him, when I take the time to think about it.

Thank you so much for reviewing this, Hattie, and saying such lovely things! I'm very happy you enjoyed it. It's been ages since we've talked properly, but I do hope you know that this meant a lot to me!
