Hi Lizzie!

Just got here in time!

Well considering this was written for an angst challenge you certainly delivered!! My poor poor feels!

Harry was very in character here, you portrayed him brilliantly. We see time and again in the books him blaming himself for things and so when you went through a few of the people he'd lost... That's was the hardest bit for me. It was just heartbreaking to remember all the people harry has lost.

Throughout this piece the descriptions are beautiful. You get through the majority of the piece with no dialogue whatsoever so well played there. I followed the whole story easily and pictured it all so kudos to you on that.

I'm glad harry decides not to let them go in the end. It feels to me like he seems to forgive himself a little bit which is good but realises they will all be with him forever and so he can't say goodbye forever. I think that's the perfect end.

Great job anyway! I thought you writing was really beautiful in this!

YAY! I get really nervous about writing/posting angsty stories, and it makes me feel way better that you said that! I'm SO glad that you liked it!

Writing those little bits about each of the people that Harry lost was easily the hardest part of this. I made myself cry multiple times. When I wrote about Hedwig, I just had to stop. *sniffles*

I've always figured that Harry wouldn't ever really forgive himself. But I think that by the time the epilogue of the books rolls around, he's managed to handle the guilt. It just never really goes away. So I tried to imagine the first time that he tries to forgive himself for it all - because I'd imagine there would be loads of people telling him that it wasn't his fault, and that he shouldn't feel guilty, and that he'd eventually want to get rid of it all because it hurts so much.

This one-shot would really be the moment that he realized that it'd never go away, that he'd never forgive himself, and that was okay.

Thanks so much for R&R'ing Lauren! You're amazing!!
