I adore this story. Such a different angle and simply amazing. In my head I really like how you have brought the battle in a full circle to fighting for Cedric. It started that way in book4 and now in book 7 his father is doing the same.

I just adore this story, every aspect of it. In my opinion it could not be more perfect.

Whoa, this is dark. And yet, somehow hopeful. Overall, it's amazing how many complex emotions you manage to tie up in this short piece, but you do.

Amos is such a underrepresented character, and it never even occurred to me that he migth have been in the final battle. However, the moment I started reading this, I could see that he would have to have been there. You capture his motivations perfectly - why not get himself taken out, now that he has lost everything worth living for? And then, as he sees others losing what he did, how could he not try and stop history repeating itself?

Really great take on the complex motivations of those who came and fought, and great use of repetition too - the line I came here to die takes on new meaning each time, and by the end really got me going. Lovely writing.

I had to read this because it was called 'Diggory'. lol. You know, I had thought about writing an AU concerning the final battle through the eyes of Cedric, had he lived after the Maze. But I had completely forgotten about his father, and what a very interesting and heartwrenching story this turned out to be.

How sad to think that even after three years he was still that upset over the loss of his son. But then I let myself actually think about it for a second and realize that this man had watched his SON die. His healthy, thriving, successful, growing son DIE. For him to have waited this long to go somewhere in order to die was crazy.

I liked being able to see into his thoughts as his mind was changed, and when the attack occured I immediately thought that he was dead for sure. I was relieved when I find out that it wasn't a death at all. Amos gets another chance at living. But maybe that's what he needed--a change big enough to make him think that his second chance at life actually started him a whole new, challenging life. It's kind of hard, but I think that his lesson was definitely learned.

And your writing style is very attractive. Simple, but thorough. Thank you for this look into Amos' mind.

Your first sentence instantly drew me in, so very good job there. I really liked your choice of character and character choices, if that makes any sense. Amos's character progressed without any stumbles or awkward moments throughout the story--he didn't just randomly decide to survive, he did so for a reaon. I really liked that, and the paragraphs where he's deciding so are very touching and strong. When I read the line: "The moment that I decide there is something worth living for, my moment is taken," I was positive that he was going to be killed and that he was looking down on the scene from the afterlife or as a ghost or something, but I'm so very glad that he didn't. I'll be the first to admit that I loved to kill off all of--or most of--my characters in the pieces, but it was so very fitting not to here.

In case you can't tell, I just adored this piece. :)
