You know, I hate reading Halloween '81 fics. Almost as much as I hate reading Dead Fred fics. They are just so emotional and painful and...yeah. And yet I keep reading them.

I loved the warmth you infused this story with - showing how much they all cared for each other as a family, and how much love Harry was surrounded with as a baby. It is such a contrast to where we first see Harry in the books - living under the stairs.

The beginning of this was so normal - just a regular family on Halloween dealing with messy babies and silly things and affection. It was heartbreaking to turn from that to what I knew was coming.

You also managed to awaken all sorts of questions in my mind. Not about your fic - your fic was wonderful, but about how JKR chose to do this in the first place. Why would Lily run upstairs? To a dead end? She was a witch after all, and from what we've been told, a pretty amazing one. Why didn't she escape through a back door? And if there wasn't a back door, surely she could have taken Harry while James distracted Voldie and escaped through a ground floor window or something. Even a Muggle mother would have tried to smash out a window and run with her child.

See, so many questions! That's the mark of good writing - you get me wondering about things!

Thanks for this fic, even if you made me cry.
