Back again with your reviews for this chapter and the next one. I just want to say that even if you hadn't re-requested, I was planning on continuing to read the story, so I'm glad that you did.

I love the little songs you include, especially because you wrote them yourself. They really add to the story and give it that real genuine feel to it. I know I said the same thing in my last review, but I really feel like it's a brilliant thing to add to the story.

I love the description about Death, especially how Marigold can still feel him lurking around. I liked how you added in how Death saw himself as the master of the Peverells- it gives off that really creepy vibe, but it's also written so beautifully.

I still love Marigold as a character. I think you've written her wonderfully- I like how she understands the world around her even though she's quite young. I like how she's selfless too- she's worried about Trip and his magic, rather than herself. For me, that makes her an incredibly likeable character. I liked Mayor Radley as well- I think the fact that you mentioned his son with the twisted leg, it's not usually a thing that gets written about, but it is something close to my heart. Especially the fact that he is more worried for the boy than ashamed- that was really nice to read.

The fact that Stephane seems so shocked about a muggle being able to do magic was really well done. I liked seeing what he thought before the prejudice about muggle-borns really became a thing. I think the fact that Stephane actually wants to stop the plague is a very powerful thing-it's not necessarily something you'd hear from a wizard, I think. The fact that he actually manages to do it, was amazing. I'm definitely growing to love Stephane as a character.

I love how you build the detail in the story. Now, especially, since I realise I've read other pieces of yours, I can see the real variance in your style. I think it's wonderful that you can write a story like this with so much detail and story, and also write a story like GfS which is more character based. For me, this just highlights how much you've put into this story.

I'll be reviewing the next chapter now!

Author's Response: Hi Ely! :) First of all thanks so much for giving me all these wonderful reviews, and hearing that you wanted to keep reading anyway really made my day. ♥

Ah, I loved writing the songs! For each chapter they were the first thing I wrote to get a good feel for what might happen. I'm glad you felt it added to the story.

As soon as I knew the Peverells would be my main focus I knew there had to be a mention of Death- I felt that he would continue to haunt the descendants of Ignotus especially. I'm glad you found him creepy, but also an interesting addition. :)

It's wonderful to hear how you like Marigold! She is very kind and helpful to others, and cares about her family and friends. Mayor Radley was a really unique character for me to write as well - I'm glad you found his love for his son touching as I think it gave an interesting spin to his character.

I'm glad you liked the interpretations of muggleborns as well! I sort of imagined muggleborn wizards mostly being frightened and staying secret, so a muggleborn talking about his abilities would be quite confusing. I'm glad you like Stephane, as I really love him too- he has heroic and great magical qualities, but also a lot of flaws and selfish inclinations, so he's a real joy to write.

I'm really honoured you enjoyed the detail, and can tell how hard I worked on making this detailed and unique! :) I really love playing with different styles of stories and narrative.

Thank you so much for this beautiful review! :)
