Hi! I'm here for the Twelfth Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing.

I love that you've devoted an entire short story collection to the immediate aftermath of the Battle of Hogwarts. It's not something that I see a whole lot, and this first chapter is incredibly interesting to me!

Thanatos Nott... What a great name. Thanatos is, after all, the Freudian term for the part of ourselves that longs to destroy. How fitting, then, that Thanatos Nott destroyed the Tonks family when he killed Ted Tonks. It is in his nature to kill and hurt--his very name indicates that!

It's also goodto have a Death Eater's perspective. Of course, after the Battle, what are you supposed to do with the members of the losing side? It makes sense to imprison them, and it's what they deserve. Their concern for their children is touching and it reveals that they are not so brainwashed by Voldemort's ideals that they feel no love or pain for their families. I thought that Thanatos' memory of Theodore was particularly touching. It is incredibly interesting that the son did not grow up to become his father.

Great first chapter! Happy Twelve Days of Reviewing! :)


Author's Response: Hello! :) I'm so glad you decided to review this story, I'd nearly forgotten about it! :P

I'm glad you liked the idea- it was actually for a challenge a while ago on the forums which was so much fun to work on. I'm really happy you liked it!

Yes, I felt that Thanatos was the perfect name for a death eater! I actually got the idea from a minor greek god of death, but the fact that it's a Freud term as well is really interesting and fits so well!

I felt that the darker side of things was quite interesting as well and the challenges would continue on after the battle. I'm gad you found his worrying about his children interesting and that they still have some depth. I felt that it was very tragic and complicated as well and I'm glad that came across.

Thank you very much for the lovely review! :D
