Review:The Misfit says:

I thought I was evil.

Then I read this one-shot and CRIED.

You've done a really, really fabulous job at describing Colin's emotions. As someone scared of the dark too, I can say that what you wrote was scarily accurate.

A lot of people seem to forget that Colin was just 16 or 17 at the Battle of Hogwarts, depending when his birthday is, and he hasn't gone through the same things as Harry so he's still very much a child. This one-shot made me think of him Petrified in the hospital wing, and Madam Pomfrey turning out the lights, and Colin being left in the dark and not being able to verbalize his fear. *whimpers*

You described the battle really well; there was a lot of confusion as people were fighting and you showed that in Colin's thoughts superbly. And I HATED that line at the ending, even though it was so perfectly fitting with the one-shot itself and with canon.

"Please let me wake up."

But he'll never wake up and that broke my heart. That ending... he's just a frightened little boy in the end, despite all that's happened, and I just want to put my arms around him and keep him safe.

*goes off to cry in the corner*

Author's Response: I felt so terrible doing that to Colin! I don't know why my brain thought that it would be a good idea, it broke my heart so badly to do that to poor Colin.

Yeah, he wasn't that old and he had been sheltered. Oh no! I didn't even think of him being petrified! and now I'm even sadder :( I'm a monster!

Thank you so much for your review Isobel, even if I'm am the meanest person for what I've done to poor Colin. :(

*joins you in crying*
