This is so heartbreakingly lovely. I love the format in which you wrote it--it feels like second-person and first-person at the same time, which is nice in this fic. Your characterization of Lily is kind of perfect, too.Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for coming by!
I'm glad you liked the perspective - it does kind of feel like it's written from two POVs, and I'm happy that it worked for you. It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed my Lily as well.
Thanks for your very kind review!

Oh, my God. This fic - you've written this so beautifully and perfectly and oh, Remus. I love that you didn't really stray from canon, and I love the back-and-forth writing. His feelings for his son are really painful but plausible. Lovely, lovely work.Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really wanted to remain true to the characters and most of the time that means staying canon. It also makes the story more plausible. Thank you so much for your review, I'm so happy you enjoyed it!

Oh, wow. I had the niggling feeling in the back of my mind that somebody had died, but, wow. This was very moving and beautifully written. I love that we get insight from each character, that we really understand what the family is going through. My favorite bit was Louis, who is an unsung character for the most part. Lovely writing!Author's Response: Niggling feelings are good. I think a second read makes it far more obvious with this, too. I really wanted to get across the whole range of relationships and opinions in it. Louis is probably my favourite too, perhaps just because he is so under-represented, generally.
Thank you so much for the lovely review! Report Review
That was really beautifully written, almost poetic in its diction. I really like that you used the same phrase at the start of each section; it really brought the piece together, made it feel complete and connected. I really like the idea of Blaise/Pansy/Daphne, too, so that was also nice. Lovely writing!Author's Response: thank you very much :) Report Review
