Hey! Here for the 12 days of reviewing challenge. I have a real soft spot for Colin Creevey as a character, so this obviously broke my heart into teensy wee pieces. I hate that he had to die in the final battleÖ!

This chapter was really moving, especially with all the repeated mentions of Dennis and the winking eyes. What are the winking eyes? I guess Iíll have to read on to find out, hehe - at first I imagined Colin had charmed photographs of himself to wink at Dennis as a way of signalling whether he was alive or not. Which is silly, but itís what my mind jumped to!

One of my favourite bits was where the stairs formed a whirlpool of sorts and swallowed up the Death Eaters. Very imaginative, and something I can see the castle doing during the final battle. I also really liked how your writing because increasingly fragmented as the fic went on and you used more dashes to break up sentences, showing Colinís growing anxiety and the intensifying action. And the last line was absolutely heartbreaking.

Really lovely chapter - Iíll definitely be back to check out the rest when Iím not so hungover and tired (happy new year, by the way!). Thank you for posting this! ♥

Author's Response: Oh, that idea of the winking eyes is really beautiful too! I guess in this first chapter I was sort of going for that sense of not quite knowing what the winking eyes are, and leaving that up to imagination. Obviously my answer is going to be given in the next two chapters :)

I'm so glad you liked the writing of the battle... I always find actions scenes pretty challenging so I'm glad I did this one well.

Thanks so much for the lovely review! And a happy new year to you too!
