Hey! I decided to power straight on ahead and read/review your final chapter, which I am very sad about because it is the final one :(

Yay, Lavender is finally going to leave the house! And with Parvati and Charlie no less - the two people that have truly helped her after her suffering. It's kind of sad that she feels the need to hide her scar with a scarf but I guess I would feel the same in a similar situation. Going out for the first time in months does not need any added stress than what is already present!

I never considered the effects the War would have had on the Browns so it's great to see you address this. A unique touch, having her mother 'die' in order to stop her being taken in.

Parvati is a ray of sunshine - truly. She's so affirmative with Lavender that sometimes its hard to remember Lavender is even having trouble with social situations. But of course she is and I think you accurately portrayed her anxiety during the party scene. It was such a nice touch with Hermione's scar as well. Not only because Lavender and Hermione are often played off one another but because I actually forgot about the possible scarring that Hermione would have possessed after Bellatrix's torturing. So well done for remembering! Honestly though, so many scars... and yet, it is perfect. Not because the scars are perfect, oh no. Because War has affected everybody and it is through seeing these scars that Lavender realises she is truly not alone.

A massive well done on this fic. Although it was only short and I wished it would go on forever, it made a lot of impact in a short amount of time. Truly amazing. I've added it to my favourites I love it that much! Like I've said countless times before, I'm so glad we were paired for the review exchange! It's been amazing reading this story. You are a very talented writer!

Author's Response: Hi again! Aw, you're so sweet, Jess!

I was so proud of Lavender for finally managing to leave the house at this point, because it's taken her a long time to get here and each day it gets harder to leave, but she did achieve it with the help of Parvati and Charlie - who, like you say, are the two who've helped her throughout.

I realised that I had to try and work in some sort of details about how Lavender's family escaped the war when I decided she was going to be half-blood. I'm glad you liked the way I explained it!

I honestly think that someone like Parvati is exactly what Lavender needs, making sure that she does things outside of her comfort zone because that's what she needs to do. But I'm really pleased you liked the way that I showed Lavender's anxiety with the others and then also that other people had scars and had suffered during the war.

Thank you so, so much for these amazing reviews that you've left me, they've meant so much to receive! ♥
