Review #1, by Libera SonorusAstute Observations: Astute Observations

17th January 2011:
Another expertly written story. I liked how, even with a heart-wrenching story, you managed to inject some humour...this line made me giggle: "she did also feel sorry for Harry, but only when he wasnít talking in capital letters". Enjoyed this one very much.

Author's Response: That line was inspired by my own sentiments of Harry's behaviour in OotP. He was so annoying... ;) I couldn't resist having Tonks feel the same way, especially since it takes Harry such a long time to realise the state that she's in, then he goes along and misinterprets it, so I've turned the tables on that a bit. Glad you liked it!

Thank you very much for reading and reviewing! It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed this story, which is one of my personal favourites. ^_^

Review #2, by Libera SonorusThere is a Light That Never Goes Out: There is a Light That Never Goes Out

17th January 2011:
Another very well-written story, although I felt heartbroken when Tonks said that she did not love Teddy. Realistic, poignant, and sad. Well done.

Author's Response: Thank you again for the kind words! This was a much harder story to write, partially because it bothered me how, in DH, JKR not only killed off Tonks, but did so in a way that really set Tonks apart from Lily. Yes, they both died valiantly and violently, but Tonks leaves her son behind to follow after her husband - that made me wonder whether Tonks had that same deep connection with her son that Lily had with Harry. Tonks may have loved Teddy, but not in the way she thought she should. It's a very sad and complicated thing.

Review #3, by Libera SonorusThe Final Problem: The Final Problem

17th January 2011:
Stunning. Excellent characterization of young Albus, and a well-paced, well-thought out story. I'm trying to think of specifics to comment on, but all I can come up with is blubbering praise. Extremely well done.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! This is spectacular to hear, and I really appreciate that you took the time to review. I would like to agree with you that the story was well-thought out, but in actuality, it emerged by itself. I was uncertain of how to make the young Dumbledore work throughout the whole thing, relying on the presence of Sherlock Holmes in the back of my mind rather more than I should have. But I'm certainly glad to hear that the story seems well-thought out. ;)

Review #4, by Libera SonorusMore to Live For: Double Trouble in April

17th January 2011:
Some cute moments, especially little canon-esque quips such as: "She was determined to have enough grandchildren for several quidditch teams." Good so far, but try not to spend too much time on trivial details...spice it up a bit with little magical asides or funny quips like above :)

Author's Response: Thanks for the comment! I do like writing canon-inspired dialogue and I try to include as much as possible. I just also want the characters to grow beyond their roles in the original HP books. Currently I am just trying to get the story done while staying on task with the plot. I intend on going back and adding some neat little canon-inspired things later so keep checking for updates!
