Hey hon! Here from review tag :D

I liked Harry's characterisation. I think it's really realistic for him to want to visit the people he loved so much after he proposes, it's a really beautiful sentiment and also very bittersweet. It really made me sad to think that if James and Lily were alive Harry would have told them he was planning to propose, but now he tells them after he's done it, because he was denied them being a significant presence in his life :(

But as well as making me sad this was happy, in a way, as well. You really captured the wistful mood. I feel like this showed his acceptance of all their deaths, even though he's sad and longs for the life he never had, he does have acceptance and can still be happy about things like proposing to Ginny. This was a really gorgeous portrait of post-war Harry moving towards happiness and also a period of calm in his life, after everything that happened. The way you wrote his dialogue here really made me think of epilogue!Harry, calmer and quieter and more adult after the war. That was really nice to read.

I liked the short length, too, it felt perfect for this. It was like just seeing a tiny significant moment into this whole life Harry leads after the series ends. A snapshot, and you picked a great moment to capture.

I really enjoyed reading this, I'm glad review tag brought me here :)


Author's Response: Hey! Thank you for reading and reviewing.

I am pleased you liked Harry's characterisation and that you found it realistic and could understand the sentiments behind his visit. Yeah, it makes me sad too :(

I am glad you liked the wistful mood, and Harry's acceptance of their deaths. It's great to know that you liked the way I portrayed a post-war Harry, and that it matched with the epilogue.

I was worried about the length so it's a relief to hear that you found it suited for the theme and you enjoyed the moment.

Thanks a lot =)
