Hi!

Now, this was meant to be a congrats on becoming a validator present (not to mention, another amazing reason to procrastinate on homework and read your ever beautiful writing!)...But, time and RL got in the way :/

Anyway, this was so, so, sad, and yet calm and so so beautiful! I loved your writing in this! The emotion I could sense in the words made me want to curl up in a ball and cry :( So so good! I've always thought Lavender was an interesting character and this really explored every bit of her personality.

At the start I thought she had actually travelled to each of these places, but the twist at the end was so lovely in such a bittersweet way. I really loved it. And the reason she escapes into her own mind (because of her scars, etc.), was amazingly explained :)

And I really liked how the ending wasn't happy, because it shows us that sometimes, things will never heal. Not to mention, the war will sometimes change people forever, to a point where they can never even try to change back.

^^And that is why I don't read sad post war fics. It gets me thinking deeply, and believe me, that is something no one wants to see ;)

Anyway! Loved it! :D

Author's Response: aww, thanks Curie!!

I'm sorry for writing a soppy post hogwarts angst fic. I seem to do a lot of them here. I just so interested in the reactions of students who are really too young to experience what they did and how they got through life without Voldemort hovering over them.

This turned out to be one of my favourite pieces i've written. I meant for it to be a lot brighter than how it turned out, really wanted her to be travelling and that was how she was healed, but then... well you read what happened. I got another idea while writing and then shifted my focus and I got a woman who couldn't deal with life afterwards.

I like Lavender. She's strange though because she comes off as quite frivolous in the series, but then there are moments you get that you wonder if she's more. I mean, i'm just re-reading Goblet of Fire and she's one of the very few students who stays behind to help Hagrid, Harry and Co with rounding up the Blast Ended Skewts. She stayed for the battle in the end as well. It makes me really interested in her anyway.

Yah, endings aren't always happy. Sometimes, things don't change. Sometimes they get worse, sometimes they stay the same. It isn't real if every person gets a happy ever after. Which makes me sad because i'd rather write in a happy ending where she finds the light, but so far, this isn't happening for her.

Thank you so much for your review and I appreciate all your comments. They were fabulous!
