I really identified with Moody in this piece in a way that's weird for someone like me who's never gone through what he's gone through - but I still felt his guilt, his aging, his gruffness. I can't say how much I love the end, because it's one thing to get Harry's thoughts on a scene, but to hear the emotions behind the other side of a conversation, from a more mature character, is really something else.

I thought it was very heart-warming in a way that Sirius could comfort Moody with his own feelings of guilt - I just love all of the dialog, too, as it sounds so very in-character for what I would consider some tough ones to write. Favorite line: “How can I not?” Alastor inquired tightly as he sagged further into himself. It conveys a guilty conscience without having to say it outright, which I found just brilliant.

Poor guy... who would have thought... ? Anyway, guys, I have gotta compliment you guys - when two people write together, it's impossible to see the difference. And if I hadn't drunk in every word on the page, I honestly wouldn't have realized it was not just one person writing this. Cheerz to you!! 10/10!!

Great! Absalutly fabulis! You write Moody's charector really well. And the way you wrote about the guilt that he was feeling was so well writen. Totaly made my morning.

WOW! I am impressed by this story. Since I have never read an Alastor Moody story, this helped me gain insight on this side of his character, and the realism in it. Thanks for a wonderful read!

Excellent story! With the tough seeming characters, people always seem to forget that they feel emotions too! In fact it's usually bad experience that leads them to being so tough and wary in the first plae. You showed Moody's guilt wonderfully here and the ending was beautiful! :) Great work! 10/10 ~ andy x x

Author's Response: First, let me apologize for taking so long to reply to your review, I didn't mean to ignore you and I really appreciate you taking the time to review my stories.

I know exactly what you mean about people tending to write Moody with little to no emotion, I've seen it many times over the years that I have been reading fanfiction and it is one of the things that draws me to Mad-Eye the most. He's one of my favorite characters to write and I love digging beneath his broken exterier to expose his human side, while trying to keep him in character.

I love that you enjoyed this piece and that you found his character to be beliveable - that means a lot to me. Thank you again for the wonderful review! - Jenn
