I shed a tear, it really is a beautiful one shot :) Report Review
It was beautiful. Simple, sweet, innocent, perfect. I have never cried at a story on this site, but I cried at yours. Well done. Report Review

Im not crying..of course not...*wipes tears furiously* Brillant. Abosolutely brillant. *Sniff* Report Review
Wow.this is one of the very few fics. that have made me cry. In the Harry Potter books, McGonagall always seems to be the stern aunt, who most of the Gryffindors love but respect. And I think that you have really shown a very softer side of her, and with Neville, who I always though she liked. Alice Longbottom and Neville's feelings about his parents have never really been addressed except for that one time in I think, the 5th book. But, you did an excellent job of really showing the more serious and grown-up side of Neville and his and his mum's relationship with the teachers. Good Job! Report Review
Lovely Story. Lovely Song as well. Report Review
i started crying when she first started reading .. this is probably the most touching story ive read in a reaaally long time. Report Review
I favourited this as fast as I could. This seriously almost made me cry. I miss my mum, though I could just phone her if I wanted. But it's not the same. Report Review
Aww, that was beautiful! I’ve read this kind of stories often, but you wrote it differently. I love how you used McGonagall in it and how you wrote Neville. “No.” he said, giving her a profound look of innocent wisdom that seemed to sit so naturally upon his youthful face. He frowned, ever so slightly, then added, “She was just my mum.” Love that line! Great work!! Report Review
oh wow. that made me cry.Author's Response: Sorry, and thank you! X Report Review
This was beautifully written.
I even began to choke up at the beginning, you caught me with your play of Alice's emotions, and your Neville is just too cute for words. It's so heart-warming. Even McGonagall choking up and saying 'mum' fit just right.

Eee! I love--LOVE--Billy Elliot, and that is one of the most touching scenes/songs ever! I saw the summary and I had to read it, and it was definately not a disappointment. It fit with Neville beautifully. Well done.Author's Response: Ah, brilliant! I was hoping that someone would have seen the musical too! I agree, this song is such a touching moment, and I bought the soundtrack, so it astounds me every time! I'm really glad you think I did it justice, because I was worried about taking something from the song by using it in a fanfic. Thanks so much for reading love! X Report Review
Wow that was so beautiful. I love writing and reading about Neville, he is such a good subject.Author's Response: I definitely agree =] I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thank you so much for reading! X Report Review
I don't have words! I rarely find a story that ever does my Nevill justice, but this was the most wonderful story I could have stumbled upon. I've never heard this song or seen the muscial, but this was a MAGIC story. Great job! 10!Author's Response: Thank you SO MUCH! I'm really glad that you like my portrayal of Neville- one of my biggest fears in writing is missinterpreting the characters, so I'm glad you approved :) Thank you so much for reading, and for leaving a much-appreciated review.

OMG! I almost cryed! This was amazing!Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! X Report Review
That was gorgeous. The line in the middle 'in an oddly vacant, horribly crowded corner of her destroyed mind', I can't get over how perfect that was. I actually read this twice, just to make sure it was as good as I thought it was.
You have a way of using simple words to convey amazingly abstract emotions, and it gives this an aura of seensability that completely impressed me. This is DEFINITELY going on my favorites.
I commend you.
