Hi Zayne! I'm here for 2nd (of 12) day of reviewing on the forums!

I really liked this! I haven't read many Hannah fics and I don't know if I've read anything that features Ernie as a main character as well. And I think you wrote a post-war Hannah and Ernie superbly. I felt for both of them.

It's so sad how Hannah is suffering a survivor's guilt and post traumatic stress of the war, but very realistic, I think; I can't imagine going through what she did. I hope in years to come, both Hannah and Ernie are able to recover to the point where they can see each other again without instantly remembering the horrors of the war.

I liked the end though - it seems there is hope for a new start for both of them. The countdown was a nice touch - like it's the end of an era, sort of, and at one it's starting over. I like that.

You mentioned at the beginning that you hoped this worked as a stand alone piece; I haven't read the story that comes before this and I wasn't confused at all reading this. I did wonder how Hannah knew Tonks so well, but it didn't take away from the story to not know. In a way I liked the vagueness of not knowing because it fit in with Hannah's empty state of mind.

Great work on this!

Author's Response: Hi!!

Thanks for choosing this little story to review then! I've really enjoyed writing the two of them, probably, as you said, because they are so minor. It gives me so much more to play with. I'd like to think that they'd both recover without being a destructive force to each other (especially on the side of Ernie being destructive (unintentional of course) to Hannah). But yah, i'd like them to be friends again, to be able to get passed this, but I think it's the close proximity that also causes the spiral to worsen.

I'm glad you found the hope in the countdown. I really wanted to have that moment in there when the reader sees that it isn't the end for Hannah or Ernie. It's starting over, it's a moment that Hannah has felt in the air the need for change.

I'm really pleased you felt this was a standalone. I always seems to write in my own little universe of HP and after writing something I'm always wondering if i've explained it enough on the screen when the rest of the backstory is either in another story or in my head.

Thank you so much for your review!!
